Nari & Milani announce their North American tour with a video clip on their YouTube page. Last year the Italian duo created a buzz with the release of “Kendo” on Steve Angello’s Size Records. In April they released “Atom” on the same imprint and it shot up #1 on the Beatport Top 10 for a few weeks and really brought Nari & Milani into the international spotlight. The song was debuted by Swedish House Mafia at UMF Brazil, and got a second play days later on the live broadcast of their Madison Square Garden show. From that moment forward, ripped versions were sitting on the iTunes most played lists of many. The tour lasts through the month of August and makes stops from coast to coast. Full list of dates after the break. (more…)
Following his “The Drew/Animal Garden” mixes Jeremy Olander has released another quality remix, “Mine & Yours.” Similar to his mentor Eric Prydz, Olander takes you on a progressive journey with subtle nuances, which all seem to sound off perfectly in place. Beautifully utilizing Elise’s vocals, Olander’s intricate instrumentals and harmonies mesh into a magical sounding piece of art. “Mine & Yours” is probably Olander’s best remix to date, and as he follows the steps of Eric Prydz we are excited to witness Jeremy Olander mature as an extremely talented producer.
Justice have really outdone themselves with their latest music video. The “New Lands” video, financed by Red Bull Music, is set in some sort of futuristic colosseum as thousands of fans and a sinister group of owners watch their teams compete. Two teams do battle in a sport that can only be described as: baseball meets Tron meets Rollerball meets American football meets Gladiator. It might just be the coolest sport ever invented. Regardless of whether you’re a fan of Justice or not, check out this video as it really is quite something.
P.S. If you like “New Lands,” make sure you have a listen to A-Trak’s awesome remix!

You may have heard that Thomas Gold will be returning to New York’s Governors Island this August, but what you haven’t heard is that you have a chance to win a trip to the show courtesy of the man himself. A new contest on Thomas’ website will send one lucky winner and a friend to either his Governors Island show on August 12th, another pair to his show at Pacha Ibiza on the 24th with Axwell and Pete Tong. The winner will receive flights, accommodations, and entry for two people, while all entrants will receive a free five-minute mini mix of Thomas’ Axtone Presents Thomas Gold compilation as a consolation prize.
While we are big fans of Rune RK’s “Teacup,” we’re not exactly sure how to interpret the single’s music video. It certainly isn’t what one would term a traditional house music video. However if you’re a fan of watching masked Scandinavian models smash up crockery, then this video is right up your alley. It is definitely a change up from the bikinis and beaches theme that we see in so many videos, but who says that is a bad thing? The single itself has been a huge success, having garnered strong support from Pete Tong, A-Trak, Kaskade and Avicii. We’re excited to see what else Rune RK has in store for us this year!
Jesse Keeler is the second half of Death From Above 1979 alongside Sebastien Grainger, so it’s only appropriate that he signed on to do an official remix of Felix Cartal’s “H.U.N.T.” Under the moniker JFK, he transforms the upbeat original into a grunge heavy rocker. With a breakdown reminiscent of Bart B More’s breakneck-paced, acid-house-style and howling synths to match Sebastien’s howling vocals, JFK’s remix of “H.U.N.T.” easily outshines the original. Buy it on Beatport today.
Rusko has been somewhat refreshing in that he has not followed the dubstep trend towards massive, generic Skrillex-esque drops. Originally out on his album Songs, “Thunder” is being re-released on itunes with a 2 track EP that contains the original mix and the Tantrum Desire remix. Tantrum Desire do a wonderful job with their drum and bass remix that really ups the temperature of the track and gives it that little extra kick. You can buy this now on iTunes.

First played by Skrillex at Spring Awakening Festival back in June, the OWSLA Records founder just posted this video of his “Goin’ Hard” remix of Birdy Nam Nam’s “Goin’ In” to his YouTube account. The video features black-and-white footage of Birdy Nam Nam, an acclaimed four-person DJ crew from Paris, dropping the fast-paced, screeching remix in front of a massive crowd of bass-thirsty fans. Call it drum-and-bass, drumstep, or good old-fashioned electro, Skrillex proves again with this track why he’s shot to the forefront of the dance world. Check out the video and stay tuned for the July 17th release on Birdy Nam Nam’s Jaded Future EP from OWSLA Records.
