FYI | The DJ Mag Top 100 Poll Is Live, Thank God

Posted by on July 16, 2013


Has it really only been five minutes nine months since the results of the 2012 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll? Wow. That totally flew by.

The DJ Mag poll is more than just a poll, of course; it’s an increasingly dominant internet sideshow that is about to become a larger part of your life than you’d probably like. How we’ve missed the pageantry of it all — the fervent sense of camaraderie that gets expressed through status updates (see above); the earnest pleas to our finer sensibilities (“a vote for Steve Aoki is a vote for pandas!”); the reliable kvetching from @Deadmau5 (“lol fuk this poll…even though I always crush the top 5 #whatever”); and, of course, the overwhelming sense of inevitability anticipation (spoiler alert: Armin wins in 2013). The only thing better than Shark Week is the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll!

In truth, this year’s poll is already shaping up to be even more unbearable than ever, due to two very distinct forces coming together to create a veritable perfect storm of awfulness:

1) Hashtags over everything. (Case in point: Ferry Corsten is now a hashtag on his own Facebook page.)

2) The EDM Explosion of 2010-Present — or whatever phrase du jour you, your grandmother, and/or The New York Times are using to refer to this awesome/terrible watershed moment in our musical metanarrative.

So if you think you’re in for anything more than a whole lotta this for the next three months…well, LOL, bro. That’s adorable.


Hip-Hop, Videos | PropaneLV – Weeknd Romance (Video)

Posted by on August 2, 2011

Truthfully, I am surprised that The Weeknd hasn’t been remixed and sampled that much given the amount of hype surrounding him. I am sure that will be change very soon, actually I am quite certain that it will. Producer Chi Duly has an upcoming project coming out titled Balloons of House that will feature uptempo remixes of The Weeknd, one of which will be this remix of The Weeknd’s “The Party.”

Chi Duly also further chopped up the instrumental and gave it to PropaneLV to make a Hip Hop rendition of the remix. The hot girl in the video alone makes this song worth posting but the song is pretty sick as well. It also serves as a great introduction to PropaneLV who I can tell just from this that he is a dope emcee. He also happens to be quite the comedian on Twitter and extremely excited that Shark Week is back (check out his parody video of Meek Mill’s “Tupac Back” titled “Shark Week Back” here).
