Arguably the two biggest releases from our industry in the last two years (“Stereo Love” and “Levels“) get mashed up by the Dirty Dutch king – Chuckie. Yes, both songs may or may not have been played out, but you would be lying to yourself if you think that you wouldn’t lose your shit in a club or pool party to this combination. Just thinking about how crazy all the hot women will be going if this is dropped in a live set is enough to click the download button. Take our word, play this mash up often and use it as your ‘not so secret’ weapon.
Jacob Criborn and Leonard Scheja (aka Nause), are a fairly underrated tag-team of unsurprisingly talented Swedes. Quick recap – earlier this year one of our favorites, John Dahlback, cleverly released Nause’s magnificent track “Made Of” on Mutant records, which did not get as much attention as it deserved. However, the track went on to be brilliantly remixed by Chuckie and Dahlback. Nause has now remixed Kwan Hendry’s “Don’t Give Up,” as they perfectly incorporate SoulCreams stimulating vocals, and add catchy melodic electro synths. This is just one of those feel good tracks that when played (the louder the better), evokes so many happy emotions and memories. The Swedes never disappoint with their progressive gems. Be sure to keep an eye out for these guys as their next big release is their remix to Kaskade’s “Turn It Down.”
BONUS: Here is a much HARDER edit to the track by another awesome Swedish Duo – Darwin & Backwall. They offer a progressive remix, which has a noticeably powerful drop of bass lines similar to Dada Life’s heavy drops, and addicting complementary drums that are very similar to Dahlback’s drum sound.
Influenced by Dada Life, Chuckie, Sidney Samson, D-Wayne, Hardwell, and his model figure Sander van Doorn, Jacob van Hage has developed a distinct sound consisting of jagged beats blended with euphoric sounds. His previous original “Spotfire,” which reached #1 on beatport and was heavily supported by Ferry Corsten and Sander van Doorn, is a track you MUST listen to in order to comprehend how fabulously hard Van Hage goes on his productions. His music contains a mix of of trance, house, tech, and dubstep, making it so effective on the dance floor. “Convoi” is Jacob’s latest mind-blowing release on Doorn records, and it seems as though Sander has perhaps found himself a prodigy?
Is it just us or does the title bug you a little bit? Isn’t it supposed to be Calvin Harris featuring Rihanna and not the other way around? Maybe it’s just our EDM bias, but it is sort of irritating. OK, let’s get back to business – R3hab infuses “We Found Love” with his signature hard style drop. Feel the power at approximately a minute and a half in – this is a mixture of chainsaw and Dutch bleeps, the balance is hit perfectly. The grunge and electro lovers can both get behind this. The exact release date is still unknown, but we will update you as soon as we find out!
Note: Chuckie has a great remix coming out soon as well!
Trevor Castillo’s “This Feeling” uses the lyrics from Chuckie’s 2009 smash hit “Aftershock (Can’t Fight This Feeling)”. We completely understand why – the vocals are a perfect blend of fun and uplifting. Marco V applies his trademark progressive synths and just like “Sticker” and “Provider” the drop goes just as hard. The chopped up vocals during the build up adds a nice touch that supplements the pounding drums in the background well. What’s the best part you ask? Fast forward to about 2:37 and catch the breakdown happening, just pure bliss.

Chuckie might be the most high-energy performer in house music today. The guy is always jumping around on stage with such intensity that we have absolutely no idea how his trademark wide-brim baseball hats stay on. He never takes his foot off the gas, and his sets are relentless from start to finish.
This bootleg features the signature chords from Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with a heavy, metallic drop. If you don’t like it, then you need a bigger subwoofer.

Since we love DJ Chuckie and we know you do too, we’re following up our epic ”Behind The Booth” video from earlier this week with another video recap. This time we jetset to San Diego for his show at the Hard Rock Hotel’s Intervention Sundays, and the hot sun and Dirty Dutch beats proved to be the perfect combination for one awesome pool party. Watch the video above if you don’t believe us, but otherwise, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Chuckie featuring Gregor Salto – What Happens in Vegas (Original Mix)
Chuckie has been a longtime friend of Dancing Astronaut, and we got to see him bring the Dirty Dutch to Long Island at Identity Festival this past weekend. From the second the charismatic DJ took the stage and innocently asked if everyone was “ready to jump,” we knew we were in for a high energy hour of classic Chuckie tracks and fist pumpers alike. Ready for the runaround? You know where to click.
