Eleve11 was officially released today and Spinninrec has provided a full length tracks for each and every song on the album. Not to mention you can buy single songs or the entire album on both itunes and Beatport. I was going to do some sort of an album review but I feel like some of the tracks have already been leaked and if your truly curious enough, you’ll explore the tracks more on your own. That being said, ‘Slap My Pitch Up’ was a track that really stuck out to me. It’s got a maximal electro vibe to it (a type of music that tickles my fancy) plus, I can’t help but think of ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ (Boys Noize bumped his remix of it Sunday at E-Zoo) . ‘Slap My Pitch Up’ is definitely a favorite of mine (really also diggin ‘Drink to Get Drunk’, released about a week ago.)but be sure to check out Eleve11 for yourself as I believe Mr. Van Doorn has something for everybody.
Remember how earlier in the week I mentioned Hardwell and Nicky Romero as two DJ’s who are really climbing the ranks. Well, it makes it even easier when the two collaborate together to make a progressive bomb. This track has been circulating a bit, but it’s been real hard to find since spinnin records really cracks the whip on early releases. The release date is set for September 26th. Below is a slightly extended preview that can be found on both Hardwell and Romero’s soundcloud’s. Couldn’t resist putting up the vid. Pretty pumped for this monster.
How about a little big room house for your Tuesday night. Lo Fi Fnk is a Swedish electropop group who released their single “Boom” in early July and they’ve had several DJ’s remix the tune. Ranging from nu disco to downtempo grunge electronic, Boom has been done up in several different ways. Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, out of Stockholm (these guys only have 377 facebook fans), give Boom a prog house sound with some climatic piano chords similar to something you might hear from SHM. Anyway, hopefully this gets Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman on the map and that it perhaps motivates them to make more big room tracks like this one.
In the spirit of football season Joe Namath’s mustache gets another stint in the limelight. It’s time for volume 4 I’m hoping can keep with its prior volumes but having a Justice song alone may help suffice. It’s been a while so I decided to throw in a sixth song, basically accrued intrest from the break in time from the last post. Note the new pronunciation,gives it a Euro flair.
I Don’t Know What to Do is a perfect track to lead off with. In an earlier mix I featured a remix from The Magician so he’s officially made it as the first two timer and rightfully so. The Magician (Stephen Fasano) is one half of Aeroplane, A deep house electronica group, one that still features Vito De Luca the other half of the original duo. I’m also a real fan of Jeppe, solely because of Classixx incredible remix of I’ll Get You, but the vocals are still pretty awesome. This particular track has one of those incredible synthy bridges that are real trancy.
I Don’t Know What to Do (feat Jeppe) – The Magician
I started listening to Moullinex a while back and always try and keep my eye out for any remixes from the disco house producer from Lisbon. Kamp! is a Polish band definitely worth taking a look at if you’re into this type of music. This is a real funky disco joint with this Polish group’s vocals.
Kamp!-Cairo (Moullinex Remix)
I’ve been meaning to put up one of the many Penguin Prison remixes I’ve heard and decided this Lancelot remix can be its representative. I see nothing but Penguin Prison remixes within this genre of music as the New York City DJ seems to have everyone remixing his tunes. Lancelot is a DJ from Austrailia who released this wild EP teaser two weeks ago. This track has a nice bouncy vibe to it and its a free download.
Penguin Prison-Multimillionaire (Lancelot Remix)
Bit Funk makes it convenient for any new listener to know what they’re listening to by having his name match his sound. Bit Funk, like Penguin Prison resides in New York, (Brooklyn specifically). Unlike his name, Rap Music doesn’t match in both sound and title. Bit Funk creates a funk disco jam that could have definitely been played in clubs during the 70′s. Also pretty sure the vocal loop comes from Chuck D of Public Enemy.
Bit Funk- Rap Music
Body Language, who performed with Teddybears and Alex English last night, I first heard off of a Plastic Plates remix (this one is definitely worth checking out if you haven’t heard it). Falling Out has an awesome intro and that was all I needed to put this up. Golden Touch was basically impossible to find especially because of the bus company. The track has a real nice downtempo dance sound to it
Body Language – Falling Out (Golden Touch Remix)
Finally something to talk about with Justice. I really wasn’t blown away with Civilization and then when they released their first new single Audio Video DiscoÂ I felt a similar level of disappointment. Helix provides some satisfaction. It’s definitely different from something you might hear on Cross but it has that french flair and recognizable progressions which you can only expect Justice to use.
Justice – Helix
We here at EO are all fans of Nicky Romero. Camorra has a simplistic house feel with a great vibe to it. Definitely also digging the slight tribal breakdown. Nicky Romero is a guy who fits into a category with guys like Alesso, Hardwell, Michael Woods, as guys who are really starting to make big names for themselves in the Progressive House world. You can find this track now on Beatport.
Officially released today on Beatport, Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso let the beast out of the cage with this one. Pete Tong previewed this one on Radio One about 2 weeks ago and I’m at a loss for words. This has a great build, those euphoric climatic synths with a choppy but dope opening riff. If were gonna talk tracks that will played often at this weekends Zoo, this is definitely one of them. Though Seb Ingrosso won’t be at eZoo, Alesso will be there Sunday and at Pacha Saturday night. This is the epitomy of Progressive House so if you want to convert someone into embracing this type of sound, look no further, the track is here! Remember, download is available on Beatport.(I rarely buy songs on Beatport but today I’ve made an exception)
It’s been a bit too long since I’ve shared something and for that I apologize. Fortunately, the other members of the blog have had no shortage of music to share. Tommy Trash is a DJ I follow closely and I’ll admit, initially it was because we had the same first name. Anyway, I first heard Tommy from a track off of Kaskade‘s The Grand (Need Me to Stay). The track blew me away and Mr. Trash continues to do so. Mr. President is an electro bomb with just the right amount of a vocal sample (I don’t want to spoil the surprise but it ain’t Obama) No, Tommy Trash will not be at this weekend’s Electric Zoo Fest but I have a feeling he will be next year and that this track may make an appearance or two throughout the weekend. Let me also not forget to mention this track is a free download.
We’re gettin closer and closer to summers end, so I wanted to make sure that your end of summer stache’ had something to take him into Labor Day weekend and what better way than to start it with a Duck Sauce edit that’s a free download.
If anyone didn’t know who Bastille was before this track, now everyone will. Bastille released an edit of an unreleased Duck Sauce track, Radio. To me, Duck Sauce exemplifies IAMMM. I am also a Duck Sauce fanatic, though I was somewhat disappointed with Big Bad Wolf. Yet this song, which was just released yesterday, is dopeness. It was released on Bastille’s soundcloud yesterday and is already seeing its fair share of hype and attention. I look forward to hearing the original Duck Sauce track but I can’t even imagine the filth the original might have.
Bastille – Radio (Duck Sauce edit)
I started listening to this Do You Believe original (the video is unsurprisingly hipster) sometime at the end of March and was pretty hooked. I had never heard of Poolside but know being Poolside is awesome and the song was too. I recently got my hands on this celestial remix from Goldroom.Â Finding info on them was surprisingly difficult but when in doubt, they usually end up being a DJ from LA.Â His soundcloud page has 3 originals, 3 remixes and a mix that are all worth checking out but if not, at least give this guy below a listen.
Poolside – Do You Believe (Goldroom Remix)
I’ve become more and more invested in the indie electro disco house scene or whatever you want to call it and one guy who gets tons of recognition is Justin Faust. Faust, if you couldn’t tell by his last name is a German DJ who isÂ known for dropping the floor with his blend of rich, energetic, and synthy melodic electro. Girl Talk was a track that immediately grabbed my attention but I’ve heard many a remix that fits perfectly in that Nu-Disco genre that fits any party scene.
Justin Faust – Girl Talk
So I realized that now moving into the 3rd volume of this I’ve yet to share a Gigamesh remix with you all. I’m a huge Gigamesh guy and think that everything he touches becomes better than the original. His Everything In Its Right Place by Radiohead remix got me hooked and I’ve been keeping up ever since. Gigamesh lists himself as a producer in SeÃ±or Stereo & DiscoTech. That works for me. This Pumped Up Kicks remix in my opinion is the best of the batch.
Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (Gigamesh Remix)
For this last track, prepare yourself for something totally different. When I first saw the Skrillex remix, I expected some strange dubstep remix that I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed too much and man was I wrong. This Gabriell remix exemplifies that celestial synth and funk bassline that epitomizes the nu disco electro sound. I would be surprised to hear anyone say that they expected to hear the remix Gabriell has created. Anyway, check it out, links on the soundcloud site give a couple different download locations.
Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites – Skrillex (Gabriell Remix)
In my opinion, Sunday might be the best day for Electric Zoo this year and Fake Blood is one of the reasons why. Fake Blood at 5:35pm kicks off an amazing list of DJ’s at the Hilltop Arena (where I’ll probably be all day) that includes: Jack Beats, Diplo, & my personal favorite, Boys Noize. The beauty of this particular spotlight is not only to highlight the amazing-ness of Fake Blood but to also share a sample of Fake Blood’s new EP, Deep Red. Hopefully, he will take full advantage of his set time and showcase all three of these new tracks. Either way, the EP will be released September 12th. Be sure to check out the track below and get pumped for some Fake Blood.
Fake Blood – Deep Red (Sample Edit)
Is it safe to assume that David Guetta has now positioned himself as a “pop” DJ/producer. I mean the beat isn’t bad, the drop is somewhat enjoyable, but why do people like Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj now have to be involved. It was one thing using vocalists like Kelly Rowland and Rihanna but to me it seems as though things are starting to get a little out of control. I can only hope and pray that the electronic music business doesn’t get as warped as Rap & Hip Hop has. Anyway, here’s a new David Guetta track.
