Events | Electric Zoo: Day 1

Posted by on September 3, 2011

Although things started off slowly, I forgot this isn’t the west coast where Fridays are optional, by seven o’clock the Electric Zoo fields and stages were flooded with raging fans. Getting there early wasn’t such a bad move, mind you, since we were able to familiarize ourselves with the various stages, their media pits, and of course, the food and beverage tents. The Four stages of EDM fury featured Tiesto, Moby, Benassi, MSTRKRFT, Rusko, Robbie Rivera, and several other mind blowing acts. The next two days look equally impressive, bringing in the likes of Skrillex, Above and Beyond, and Guetta for Sat and Armin, Afrojack, Calvin Harris, and Alesso to name a few. Don’t worry, if you haven’t picked up a pair of tickets yet, you can still come join us out there by purchasing passes HERE.

Electro, House | Party Fuel

Posted by on September 29, 2010

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s officially pledging season. You know what that means? It’s time to bust out some new party fuel that provokes everyone to go buck-wild and thus create the largest messes in frats nationwide.

If you take one part “old” frat banger (Show Me Love) and add that to one part “new” frat banger (SHM – One) you end up with one absolutely filthy track. Honestly, a part of me feared this bootleg might not work too well, however, Trifo prepared this beat almost perfectly.

Interestingly enough, you can definitely hear elements from both the tracks used above, in this AfroJack remix. The signature “clap” sound from One seems to be catching on and for good reason – it’s a great tool to accentuate drops.

Fonzerelli maintains a perfect balance of sounds with his remixes; there’s a noticeable theme, yet they’re not redundant and monotonous. A number of DJs suffer from a lack of ingenuity; rather than exploring new boundaries, they confine themselves to a common theme. I guess the idea that success breeds failure rings true for some, but Fonzerelli continuously debunks this adage.

This might be slightly overdone, but I’ll leave that conclusion up to you. Lend the preview an ear if you’re a fan of the original.

Here’s a basement thumper with some authentic instrument sounds thrown in the mix.
