As the Bloody Beetroots gear up for a second weekend at Ultra Music Festival, the man behind the mask has teamed up with Tai and Bart B More to release his newest original since “Chronicles of a Fallen Love.” Kicking off with an unexpected, glittering electro intro, “S P A N K” builds into the creative chaos we’ve come to expect from Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. The track oscillates between upbeat and unruly, pulling in a pulsing beat, an orchestral breakdown, chirping vocals and even a cowbell. Not your typical electro house tune, “S P A N K” is a welcome addition to Miami Music Week.
Social media has greatly enhanced the connection between fans and artists by allowing them to connect on a level far greater than that of a spectator. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have given us an unprecedented look into the lives of our modern day rockstars by taking us behind the booth, into their homes and studios, and even sometimes into their pasts. Click below the break to check out some of your favorite artists in their younger years and find out which superstars got an early start by strumming guitars or tickling the ivories. We have shots from Steve Angello, Chuckie, Skrillex, Nervo, A-Trak, and more.
Some of you may be using your holidays to light the menorah, trim the tree, or eat an obscene amount of peppermint bark but Fatboy Slim makes us mixes. Last year, Norm released a free mix to celebrate Christmas cheer and we’re taking another listen this year as a lead-up to the 2012 holidays. This is a DJ mix in the traditional sense; Norm throws in the old and new, telling a story suited for both commercial and underground ears along the way. We’ve got Queen, Riva Starr, Beardyman, Azealia Banks, Afrojack, Bart B More & Harvard Bass, Grandmaster Flash, and Moby all woven together into a neat little Fatboy Slim tapestry of sound. It’s high energy and never misses a beat — take a listen for yourself below.
Peaches’ “Burst!” — a track Boys Noize states on his Facebook page that he co-produced — sees the remix treatment from techno electro cross-over wizard, Bart B More. On this latest take, we see signs of the brooding techno sounds that Brodinski and Gesaffelstein have been championing out of France, and slabs of electro grit that you’d find A-Trak favoring in one of his live sets. This funky upbeat tune is the type of high-energy production we have come to expect from Bart B More — crossing the boundaries of techno, house, and electro to make a whirlwind of a release.
When Harvard Bass and Bart B More collaborate in the studio the results are usually unconventional but in the most entertaining way possible. The last collaboration we’ve heard from the relatively underground producers was “The Ones EP,” which was very gratifying to listen to. If you are a fan of hard bass lines and nutty sounds then Harvard Bass and Bart B More’s latest “Pari” is just for you. Fast forward to the 1:00 mark (with your speakers at max volume) and we can guarantee that you will jump right out of your seats. “Pari” is one of those less known tracks we all crave to hear at raves when we are tired of all the predictable music most DJs play these days.
After big tracks like “Ari” and “Take Me High,” Dutch DJ/Producer Bart B More is back with a remix of Strange Talk’s “Sexual Lifestyle.” Featuring indie vocals, a funky baseline, and a lazer-synth-filled drop, this progressive house banger is a “dancefloor shattering juggernaut.” Give it a listen and download for free.
Coming off his last two releases “The Dark One” and “The Funky One” this past September, Bart B More is back for some more nutty acid house.
Bart B More & Rubix – Ari (Original Mix)
Bart B More & Rubix’s original take is our most preferred mix. Distorted electro synths build up to the 2:00 mark as the track drops into an intense acid house track that can electrify any rave for hours. Bart B More makes it seem easy as he continuously pumps out fully energized tracks as such. If you haven’t been to a Bart B More show yet, get there asap – it’s the definition of a rave.
Off of Fool’s Gold Records, rising Dutch producer Bart B More gives us a remix of Cubic Zirconia’s “Take Me High.” Featuring big-time progressive synths and lasers, this remix has received support from names like A-Trak and Annie Mac. Check it out and head over to Beatport to download it along with the original and instrumental versions.
Dancing Astronaut is proud to present to you an exclusive remix from the creator of “Babylon” and “Sirius” – Congorock. There are many of you that may own the Angger Dimas remix of “We Run The Night,” and with all due respect to Angger we think Congrock’s latest rendition is flat out the best. Think: Bart B More meets Sidney Samson. You can hear the dutch drums pounding in the background and the drop features an extra dose of dirty.
Ever since she toured with the likes of Lady GaGa and The Pussycat Dolls, Havana Brown has quickly ascended the ranks of the pop world. “We Run The Night” (featuring Pitbull) is her debut single on Universal Republic Records has done incredibly well at the box office proving that she may be our next princess.
Disclaimer: you can download this, but this tune lead to excessive bouts of procrastination or overall inefficiency due to the various attention grabbing elements throughout the track. Clicking the ‘repeat’ button may be the only thing you do today.
After teaming up in 2010 and releasing the electrifying track “Listen To This,” Bart B More and Harvard Bass once again join forces releasing The Ones EP. The EP contains two very different tracks that deliver the utmost gratification, depending on your mood.
“The Funky One” is essentially the “funky” sounding track on the EP. Consisting of just a groovy beat filled with all those “funky” sounds and drums Bart B More is known for, this track is perfect for getting the party started or if your just feeling unconventional. Previous “funky” releases from Bart B More: “Sunstruck,” “We Love,” & “Fuck You.”
As a treat, here’s the official music video:
“The Dark One” is essentially the “dark” sounding track on the EP. Running away with a faster bass kick, a jaw-grinding bass line, and filthy electro synths, “The Dark One” is ideal for reviving the crowd late night or if you feel like running on the treadmill for 15 miles. Previous “dark” releases from Bart B More: “Bodywork,”Traction,” and “Gilles.”
