Diego:Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Wall of Sound”, Drumsound & Bassline Smith get a proper rerub from Dave Spoon aka Shadow Child. 808’s and Breaks galore…
Rebecca: This song was stuck in my head for most of March and now that the video has been released I can’t stop watching it. Great job by Starcadian who directed the video as well.
Jessica: This is by far my FAVORITE Rattle remix. This up and coming electro house duo sure knows how to show some moombahton love with this track!
Erika:It’s all about the power of a woman! Girl Power! Really cool video as well.
Gohar: One of my favorite songs by MGMT “Kids” mixed with Tommy Trash’s beats = perfect track. Trash revisits this classic and puts his signature twist on it.
Sarah:If Steve Aoki and Bloodybeetroots dropped WARP in a 1920′s swing club this is probably what it would sound like! It’s nuts!
Jerome: Kinda found this track listening to mixtapes in the Interwebs…. Best enjoyed loud with powered speakers, the bass line is kickin. Even better: it’s released under FOOOOOOOOLS GOOOOOOOOLD!!
Chloe:Dare ya not dance to this.
Sufia:Most famously known for their radio hit “Help I’m Alive”, Metric’s new album Synthetica is full of fun beats and synthetics accompanied by heavy lyrics. Even though it is about abandoning a child, you can’t help but to tap your foot and dance along to this song.
Robyn:Up and coming progressive trance artist from Ukraine. Cannot. Get. Enough. He’s done a remix from one of my favorite progressive trance men, Mat Zo! He will be playing alongside Gareth Emery, Chase and Status, Ferry Corsten and more at Global Gathering this July in the Ukraine. Too bad my bank account won’t let me go.
Laura:I love Diplo’s new Express Yourself EP but this track is by far my favorite. If you haven’t checked out the rest of the EP yet, you needa get on that…
Ben:Move over Steve Nash. Tristam is now my favorite Canadian export and with tracks like this it’s easy to see why. Rage on!
Mike: Local Natives are quite possibly my favorite LA band and one of the few that I have yet to see live. This video explains why I need to see them in the near future.
Melissa:Didn’t think Knife Party could top their last EP but I just cant get enough of their new Rage Valley EP. It’s hard to decide which is my favorite song off the EP but the combination of dubstep & reggae in “Bonfire” has never sounded better.
Russell:2:50-2:57 kills me.
Vanessa:This song is an awesome twist on a Biggie classic. Listen to it while day drinking on the beach and try to tell me you don’t love California. Check out Viceroy while you’re at it, he’s got plenty of fun remixes and originals that are perfect for summer.
