Electro-House, Progressive House | Zedd ft. Hayley Williams – Stay The Night (Remixes)

Zedd ft Hayley Williams - Stay The Night (Remixes)

Zedd’s followup to “Clarity”, “Stay The Night” has made its ascent onto the radio airwaves and up the charts with its blend of a complex, musicality and accessibility in poppy dance music. Just as was the case with “Clarity”, “Stay The Night” has earned a huge set of remixes from some of the biggest and brightest names in dance music. Henry Fong adds his own gritty electro flavor to the track in what has been the remix favored by Zedd himself. Nicky Romero plays along with the melody, while DJ Snake opts for a more electro route, rather than 808s he has become known for, and Tiesto switches out the melody for a big room take. Grab the package on Beatport below.

Pop | Vera Flash – Masochistic

Posted by on September 6, 2013

Vera Flash I AMA MUSEUM

NYC artist Vera Flash just released a video for her single “Masochistic” off her 4 track EP “I Am A Museum,” and I am impressed. Vera linked up with Brooklyn producer Rusty Mack to put together a dark and poppy sound, comparable to the likes of Santigold, Lady Gaga, and M.I.A. The Colin Palmer directed video is a work of art, and we can always expect something different from Vera when it comes to visuals, you should see her video “Hustle.” This is overall a strong project, and a good teaser for the sound that we can anticipate in the future from Miss Flash. I look forward to hearing more from Vera and her team! Shout out to Rusty Mack and Red Walrus!

Electro | Apollo – Can You Feel It

Posted by on August 8, 2013

apollo can you feel it

I, like my blog brother Joe Salzer, specialize in posting hiphop, but do have the capability to notice a good EDM song when it slaps me across the face. And, boy, did “Can You Feel It” give me a solid backhand to the jaw bone. I’m a sucker for vocal cuts and when I heard virtually the entire song filled with some entrancing female pipes, I was instantly hooked.

The production was synth-filled, poppy, and overall a great time to listen to. “Can You Feel It” will be featured on Apollo’s upcoming five-track EP, and if this is any indicator of what is to come, I am more than excited!

Apologies in advance for butchering any of the EDM terms that I used. I’m trying my best to learn, bear with me.

Cover, Indie, Pop, Videos | I Love It Cover – Icona Pop (by Connor Zwetsch)

Posted by on June 23, 2013

FNT superstar and music blog novice Connor Zwetsch has given us her newest cover. This time, the beautiful, soulful singer takes on Icona Pop’s hit “I Love It,” I hadn’t heard the original until Connor’s cover made me curious, and Connor’s version had me speechless. She takes songs that originally are more poppy, and flips them into a passionate, smooth and soulful ballad. She puts so much emotion into every line and you can tell that by her facial expression and the music. Big things to come from the Tampa native Connor Zwetsch, FNT will keep you updated.

Electro-House | Two Door Cinema Club – Next Year (Shields Remix)

Posted by on February 7, 2013

Two Door Cinema Club - Next Year (Shields Remix)Sometimes it is the poppy tracks that really hit the spot. Shields was asked by Two Door Cinema Club to remix this track from their recent album “Beacon.” Two Door Cinema Club is an over-remixed group, which is why it was so surprising that i actually enjoyed this remix. Sweet track to add to the weekend playlist.

Dubstep | R Rated #47

Posted by on September 20, 2012

Vaski released this little gem a few days ago on Beatport. The vocals are in a different tone than you are use to in Dubstep, but I think that’s what I like the most about this track… besides that tasty drop.

DarkGrey is kind of a new name for me and apparently his original of this track is releasing soon on Subfix Records in 2013. Not sure how everyone else feels, but maybe he should submit this instead. The bass just pours in your ears like a waterfall, it’s awesome.

I am so happy to see Dark Elixir make a release through a label, even if it’s a Play Me freebie. He just brought it on this remix, he drops in with straight filth. Bass cannons firing with precise accuracy.

I wasn’t too sure if this could be considered R Rated material but screw it. Virtual Riot has created a few favorites of mine, this one just adds to the list. He keeps it a little poppy, but his drop says back off man I got work to do here.

I have to give PatrikReza credit for this, it is just a really cool remix. For me it just doesn’t feel right, but I just have a feeling I’m being crazy. No one ever thinks to remix Moby with Dubstep, especially not with the filth added to this remix.
