Electro, Preview | The Rolling Stones – Doom And Gloom (Benny Benassi Remix)

Posted by on December 3, 2012

I love The Rolling Stones, and considering Benny Benassi’s recent track record, I was extremely nervous clicking play. Benny clearly is trying to match his style with the changes that most EDM has made over the past few years. I can happily say that I think he found his sweet spot in his future in Electronic music. This remix is gold. Benny matched the instrumentals flawlessly to Mick Jagger’s voice and even gave the remix a little bit of that Rock and Dance vibe that The Rolling Stones were famous for. The remix releases on December 9th through Universal Music, think of it like an early Christmas gift.


Electro-House | will.i.am ft. J.Lo & Mick Jagger – Go Hard (R3hab vs The Eye Remix)

Posted by on April 17, 2012

Let me get this out of the way at the outset: I’m really, really tired of will.i.am. Lately he’s always showing up in places he doesn’t belong (like the criminally dull EDC documentary I was idiotic enough to purchase on pay-per-view recently), running his mouth on camera about things he’s probably not qualified to discuss while looking like the try-hard love child of Kanye and Andre 3000. I’m over you, man. I don’t like your style and I don’t like your moves.

Unsurprisingly, “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” never did much for me, but R3HAB’s big remix kicks it up to the next level by turning the dial on the tempo and the bass. It’s still got that commercial will.i.am. flavor and the same questionable lyrics (“you can go hard or you can go home”….sweet brah), but the build that R3HAB lays in after the chorus is delectable. Not to mention hearing the man/myth/legend that is Mick Jagger bellowing over R3HAB’s lasery synths is both incongruous and awesome. Snap up that free DL below.
