Holy Ship!! offers a completely unique experience where you and 2500 other boaters get to party from sun up to sun up with some of the best Djs in the world who also party the hardest. Only in its second year, it has become one of the hottest tickets around and has developed into a bucket list type of event.

Don’t waste anytime because rooms move VERY quickly, so get your group and money together and be ready. More info here.

DJ-Set, House | Weekend Mixes 11/15/12

Posted by on November 15, 2012

It is that time of the week again. With rivalry weekend and its impending debauchery coming to many campuses across the nation, here are some mixes to keep the party going from sun up to sun up. We start things off with The Drop and their episode this week that features a guest mix from one of the drunkest DJs on twitter, Maor Levi. Next up we have the Bingo Players’ monthly radio show, Hysteria Radio that features exclusive mashups and their latest single “Out Of My Mind“. Together We Are from Arty has been a great addition to the radio show circuit this year and already in its 20th episode, it continues to showcase lesser known tracks and put together a different and excellent tracklist. Swanky Tunes give their monthly Showland podcast with a guest mix from the Nicky Romero and a whole host of unreleased tracks. The rest of the sets are from Tritonal, Diplo, Steve Angello (short one), Hot Mouth, & Thomas Gold. Tracklists and more sets after the jump.


Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Lil Wayne – Dedication 4

Posted by on September 3, 2012

I listened to the first four minutes of the mixtape and I heard no less than 30 lighter sparks. I kid you not. On a 1-10 scale of glad trash bags, this mixtape is straight trash. The only place this mixtape is going is to my trash bin. Side note: Who in the hell is purchasing trukfit?  Perhaps the only redeeming quality of this entire project is that Lil Wayne’s weed carries recruited “Lil Mouse,” who’s a testament to an epidemic of poor parenting currently sweeping the nation, to be featured on the tape. It’s really over for Dwayne Carter. He’s well past his prime, and his contemporaries have surpassed him in creativity and style. It’s time for him to ride off into the sunset on his board with leopard jeggings on and peddle low-brow skateboarding and vodka brands they sell at CVS. Don’t forget to back slide heel flip to triple darkslide, brah.

Progressive House | Dubvision – All By Myself

Posted by on February 28, 2012

Dubvision drops this bomb on Spinnin Records that is sure to get you moving. With its easy, smooth build this song lulls to sleep with vocals from Moby – Lordy Don’t Leave Me, and then crescendos into a drop with pounding bass line and driving, uplifting synths with the occasional stutter to add variation. This song has been supported by almost every DJ under the sun including Arty, Sander van Doorn, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren and many more.

Electro | Viceroy – Sunburn EP

Posted by on November 10, 2011

Viceroy always comes through with that feel good sound that just makes you want to abandon the stress of the daily grind and just kick back and spend a mindless and carefree day at the beach. On his Sunburn EP, Viceroy provides us with the soundtrack that all of us sun-worshippers crave… just a perfect mix of soothing synth lines coupled samples that can harken back summer on the cloudiest of days. So slap this mix in the iPod, grab the sunscreen and try not to get a Sunburn.

Albums, Indie | Tycho – A Walk

Posted by on November 4, 2011

Scott Hansen, better known as Tycho is back with his new LP Dive. Definitely one of his many projects that take place in my hierarchy of chill records. A calm refreshment that floats me through time on a dreamy elevation, feels like being freshly dried by the sun. Tycho’s music deserves a better world than ours, not to mention his use of braille in the top right corner of this LP for the blind is genius. If you like what you hear, buy everything Tycho here.
