Axwell, Ingrosso – We Come, We Rave, We Love

“We Come, We Rave, We Love” was played aplenty during SHM’s One Last Tour but since the trio disbanded, and then two of them got back together, we haven’t heard much about the release, aside from the fact that there wouldn’t be one. Amy Thomson, the manager of Axwell, Seb and Steve said that we would only ever have the live edit. We had all given up hope for a proper release, which just made what we have this morning even more of a surprise. Not only is the song finally out, but it is also available for free. For those of  you who have somehow yet to hear it, it is more closely related to “Greyhound” than any of their commercial stuff and it is awesome. It appears as though Axwell and Seb are going ahead as a duo and that should excite all of you. Now all we need is some new solo stuff from Seb, it’s only been five years…

House | Bixel Boys- Out My Mind

Posted by on February 4, 2014


These guys are on FIRE.

Founded on DTLA rooftops and raised in Venice, CA basements, Bixel Boys experiment with sounds inspired by everything from R&B vocals to deep house to trap percussion; creating a high energy vibe free from common genre labels. The kids are calling this newest remix “DEEP BOOTY RAVE” and I think it’s clear why. Grab this along with their HUGE ELiza Doolittle mix and have yourself a killer rest of the week.

Progressive House | Sebjak & Marcus Schossow – Liceu

Posted by on April 29, 2013

Marcus Shossow & Sebjak - LiceuSteve Angello‘s Size Records continues its onslaught of outstanding releases in 2013 with Marcus & Schossow & Sebjak‘s single “Liceu“. With singles such as “Hit It” and “Champs” still quite popular, and with many more on the way, Size Records is showing the potency of a label head with his attention solely focused on his craft and the label’s.

“Liceu” is a unique take on the minimal festival tracks we have seen take over charts and sets recently. Dominated by a prominent brass section and a bouncy bass line, this track from the two Swedes is one that is sure to leave a strong imprint on this year. Both Swedes are poised to have big 2013, with Sebjak making waves with his “Rave” remixes, and Marcus Schossow recently being signed to Axwell‘s prestigious Axtone Records, and this record is just the beginning.

House | Teknian – Tek That

Posted by on September 19, 2012

Teknian (pronounced Tek-nine), has become a huge favorite of Sev and myself. He produces with almost unmatched skills, usually producing Glitch-Hop and dabbling in Deep Dubstep, but today I bring you his beast interpretation of Classic Tech-House. This brings me back to the days when EDM was nothing more than Techno to the community, and tracks though a lengthy 15-30 minutes would not exceed the nights rave to sunrise and on. A lot of people claim to be EDM fans these days, but it is not true to your soul if you don’t just want to rave all night to this until your sweat dehydrates you, causing you to pass out amongst a sea of lasers.




Compilation, House | Top 50 Dance Tracks Of 2013: 10-1

Posted by on January 13, 2010

Top 50 dance tracks of 2013
10. Alesso vs OneRepublic – If I Lose Myself (Alesso Remix)
Alesso’s seminal work this year, his remix for OneRepublic has gone global and then some. Ryan Tedder’s vocals are highly sought after, and meshed with Alesso’s ability to create melodies, the result was magical.

9. Duke Dumont ft. A*M*E* – Need U 100%
The Grammy nominated Duke Dumont had an amazing year with the release of this timeless deep house record. Straight from the UK, it doesn’t seem that Mr. Dumont will be stopping anytime soon with his latest release “I Got You.” Also shout out to Dave Edwards who gave “Need U” a second wind with his fun remix of the track.

8. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Moguai – Mammoth
Possibly the most played and popular big room / progressive track of the first 6 months of the year, Moguai’s collab with Dimitri Vegas & LIke Mike showed that complex melodies can be popular when amelodic festival drops were more and more common. It was played by everyone from your standards like Hardwell and Tiësto to guys like Ferry Corsten and Cosmic Gate.

7. Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais)
The original became very popular on its own, but Cedric Gervais’ rendition not only elevated his own career, but took this track to new heights across the dance and general music landscapes. It became a hit across radio stations and landed him a grammy nomination, something that matters this year now that there aren’t any scheming Rothscilds in the mix.

6. Breach – Jack
Iwantyourbodyeverybodywantsyourbodysoletsjack, let’s jack. Those vocals became inescapable this year from a more expected DJ set like Duke Dumont, to someone more surprising in Avicii, this tune was everywhere. Ben Westbreach’s single catapulted his career to the next level and became the marquee signing for Claude von Stroke’s Dirtybird Recordings. Creative genius Riff Raff directed the video. Enough said.

5. Fatboy Slim & Riva Starr ft. Beardyman – Eat Sleep Rave Repeat (Incl. Calvin Harris Remix)
It started a movement. “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” became the Motto of dance music in 2013. Born from a wacked out man in Brooklyn, this has been Fatboy Slim’s return to production prominence. The Calvin Harris remix brought it to festivals everywhere with its powerful acid bassline.

4. Disclosure ft. AlunaGeorge – White Noise
Deep house went mainstream in 2013 and the main drivers of this trend were the super young British brothers, Guy & Howard Lawrence. The most blogged about artists of the first half of the year, edging out even the French robots, Disclosure had nearly unrivaled hype of any artist in any genre. “Settle” was one of the triumphs in dance music this year, but “White Noise” stood out as the biggest this year, though really every one of them deserves a spot on here.

3. Martin Garrix – Animals
You could not escape “Animals” this year a festival for better or worse. There are tracks that change the direction of dance music and this was one of them. That “Martin Garrix” sound become copied, imitated and generally abused by producers professional and amateur alike once they saw the popularity of “Animals”.

2. Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up
The flagship single from Avicii’s debut album “True”, Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” has become the symbol for his year of breaking boundaries, starting at Ultra and then with his album “True”. It has sold millions of copies around the world and has remained one of the most popular tracks, of any genre, throughout the whole year.

1. Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams – Get Lucky
“Animals” may have been the ubiquitous festival favorite this year, but dance music has gone far beyond the festival and club stage in the past few years. The hipster backlash against RAM was palpable, but the mastery and creative genius at work not only with Pharrell and Nile Rogers on “Get Lucky”, but throughout the whole album showed the robots were still the most innovative duo in dance. “Get Lucky” immediately found its way to every radio station, wedding, and DJ set, as a favorite of everyone from kids to grandparents. It is arguably not just the dance song of the year, but the song of the year, as denoted by its grammy nomination in the same category.
