Vodka with Tommy Trash. Champagne with Christina Milian and Will I Am. Sound like your Friday night? It does if you’re one of the Stafford Brothers. The Aussie natives and recent LA transplants know how to throw a party, complete with a DJ-packed guestlist and killer setlist. How do we know? Click past the break to find out.
Don’t judge a book by its cover. And in this case, don’t judge a track by its name. The original OneRepublic track is a traditionally pop-rock tune that you may not find yourself listening to with any regularity. Enter Fred Falke. The French producer infuses the track with some proper house beats, giving it a disco feel that’s much more to our liking.
Falke is pretty much a veteran on the EDM scene, making music since 2000 and delivering remixes of pop songs for about as long. His recent album release Part IV, which features the track “Aurora,” should give you a nice taste of Fred’s style. And if you’re fiending for more, you can also check out his Soundcloud page.Posted by
We’ve come to expect great things from Kaskade and his weekly mashup treats, and this week’s bootleg, while a day late, does not disappoint one bit. He took his wildly popular “Don’t Stop Dancing” — known for its dreamy vocals — and added a gritty edge by infusing it with Albin Myers’ “Hells Bells.” The juxtaposition of sounds works incredibly well as the track floats between crooning and wobbling. Take a listen for yourself after the break and make sure to grab the free download.
Editors Note: Kaskade informed us via Twitter that some of his mashups are being taken down, so stock up while you can!Posted by
Put down your cup of coffee, you won’t need it now that you’ll be listening to Wolfgang Gartner’s Essential Mix. The non-stop two-hour set is full of some of electro’s finest, including tracks like “Illmerica” and “Undertaker” that put Wolfgang himself on the map and defined the era of electronic music. A little over two years old, this mix sounds anything but trite. Instead, it offers sounds that make you say, “Hey! I need more of that in my ears!”
Just in case you are unfamiliar with Wolfgang Gartner, his latest release was September’s Love & War EP. He also runs a label called Kindergarten Recordings, which houses artists like Popeska and Charlie Darker.
Listening to this hard collection of tracks, it’s almost impossible to believe that Gartner (whose real name is Joey Youngman) had a well-established deep house career before becoming the man we know today. In any case, he knows how to party and will hopefully help keep your eyes open this morning. (more…)Posted by
They create big things independently, but when they come together, Inpetto and Morgan Page deliver arm-raising dance floor sounds that won’t let you sit still. Such is the case with “Sinobia.” The track builds up with a steady bassline, adds synths as it reaches its chaotic apex, and the drop is that much more satisfying when the slew of rhythms come together. I personally prefer to hear a track as part of a mix or live set, where I feel it reaches its true potential. If you agree, you can hear “Sinobia” incorporated into Inpetto’s November podcast and in Morgan Page’s latest ‘In The Air‘ podcast.
After continuously hitting us with club-worthy releases over the past year, Paul Baumer and Maarten Hoogstraten — better known collectively as Bingo Players — have done it again. Available today through their Hysteria imprint, their latest single “Out of my Mind” hits all the familiar spots with its squeaky synths, promising build-up, and bass-heavy drop. In celebration of the latest release, the Bingo Players have also put together a singles pack, ready for your listening pleasure on their Soundcloud page, in addition to the Monday Beatport gesture.

In anticipation of Paris & Simo’s upcoming release “Time,” they are teasing the track with a Sultan & Ned Shepard edit on YouTube. “Time” is a slightly softer and more melodic take on Paris & Simo’s typical sound, but does not stray far from the synthy, progressive work we’ve come to expect from the duo. As the preview video suggests, the track gets dance floors packed, so it’s no surprise that the Canadian producers have been dropping it in sets for the past year.
Luckily, you don’t have to wait much longer to get your hands on it; “Time” will be released this Monday, November 12th on Harem Records. Look for it exclusively on Beatport.Posted by
House duo Syke ‘n’ Sugarstarr have teamed up with Swedish producer Rasmus Faber to produce “We Go Oh,” a mellow, piano-backed track, featuring the vocals of Linus Norda and “five other guys drinking beer and singing.” Today, we bring you a remix by EDM chameleon John Dahlback, who has taken the track down the big room route, replacing the charming piano with synth chords and adding a deeply layered bass kick. The original track has already received support from big names including Kaskade and Bob Sinclar. Check the remix below and stay tuned for an official release date.Posted by
Almost a year after unleashing their infectiously bi-polar track “Troll,” Qulinez are at it again. This time, the Swedish duo is putting forth a pair offerings in their “Bamf & Dynamic” EP, due out on December 3rd on Steve Angello’s Size Records label. Both tracks carry Qulinez’ signature electro sound, with “Bamf” mimicking the synths of their previous release, while “Dynamic” takes takes a slightly more cosmic and progressive approach to things. The tracks complement each other nicely and you can expect to hear more of them as the EP approaches its release date. Give it a listen below.Posted by
