We’re extremely pleased to review the newest release from a good friend of our website: Jus Jack. The release comes off of Tiësto‘s label Musical Freedom. Furthermore, the master himself has remixed this track. This is obviously a great honor for Jus Jack but in all honesty, this track is worth the remix.
The differences between the two tracks are extremely minute. Tiësto’s version has a more subtle intro, a bit of an added synth during the main hook. Otherwise, these tracks are nearly identical. This is not a failure on Tiësto’s part, but a testament to just how good Jus Jack’s track is. This track is great, and warrants being played over and over again.

Australian born Dj’s, Miriam and Olivia Nervo have been releasing hit after hit recently. These hits include tracks such as: Like Home, Hold On and Army. Thus, we are elated that Nervo will be playing Pacha this Saturday night. The twins are known for their extremely entertaining and energetic performances. Unfortunately General Admission tickets are already sold out, but you can still grab VIP tickets here. We highly recommend you do so asap.
Hope that you were able to check out America’s Premier DJ Competition, SMIRNOFF’s Master of the Mix, last night on VH1. In the sad chance that you missed out (probably due to a severe illness), here is a recap of what went down in the city where the heat is on. With only 5 DJs remaining, the crew hit the decks to put their all into the “Be Original” challenge. Each DJ was forced to weave together the same group of 10 songs spanning a multitude of genres and styles into a signature set. Unfortunately for DJ Dynamix, he couldn’t mix it up to snuff and the judges sent the sassy DJ home last night.
W&W (Willem & Ward) are throwing us another instant hit. Released today on their label, Mainstage Music, ‘Thunder’ is another automatic #1 on Beatport. Their last single, ‘The Code‘ made it to DMC’s Buzz Chart at #1 and spent over two weeks at #1 on the Beatport Main Chart. ‘Thunder’ draws you in with its smooth synths and then throws you on the dance floor with a great build-up and dirty drops. This track, along with many of their others, is definitely going to be heard throughout the summer on all of the main stages!
Julian Jordan is a new producer from The Netherlands and at just seventeen he has already worked with Sander van Doorn on a club hit “Kangaroo” and now has a single making waves on Spinnin’ Records. “Ramcar” takes inspiration from other young producers like Zedd and Porter Robinson in its editing style and heavy drop, and arrives just in time for summer festival season. You can check out a teaser video here.
The video for this sparkling, melodic single from Norwegian duo CLMD is as intriguing as the psychological condition it gets its namesake from. The film follows a young girl’s story backward in time, opening with a scene in Times Square that shows her happily with an older man and continues to reveal that he is actually her kidnapper. CLMD are Carl Louis and Martin Danielle, who teamed up with Kish and vocalist Frodor to create this progressive tune with a catchy chorus.
Goldfish duo, Dom Peters and David Poole, released the first single from their album ‘Three Second Memory’ and literally drowned us with this tune! The upbeat jazziness combined with Dave on the vocals make this track the musical motivation one might need to Take Back Tomorrow. If you are wondering how the two came up with such a unique name as Goldfish, it came about when Dave joked about Dom’s fantastic short term memory skills. Just like goldfish, Dom could remember tons of irrelevant information but was clueless as to where he left his car keys.
12th Planet is well known for his skilled production of dubstep. Outstanding representations of this prowess are 12th Planet’s collaboration with Antiserum for ‘Bass Salt’, or 12th Planet & Flinch with ‘The End Is Near Pt. 1’. Prior to that, under the previous moniker of Infiltrata, he produced drum and bass. It is widely known that he is a master at bringing intensity and fuel for hard hitting beats. Therefore, it comes as no surprise and is quite welcome that he has ventured into the trap realm to create more deep and heavy tracks. In his most recent endeavor, 12th Planet teams up with Mayhem for ‘Murdaaa’, which satisfies the trap aspects while operating under a developed trap undertone with a thumping bass. They tastefully sprinkled vocals on the track for an anthem that makes it irresistible to wobble to.
Last night on SMIRNOFF’s Master of the Mix, Tina T came back to try and assert her might one last time during a sudden death mini-battle with DJ Fly Guy.Tina proved that her time had come when she lost the 90 second beat juggling and scratching competition, giving DJ Fly Guy another life in the competition and a shot of succeeding during the main competition.
This week’s challenge was entitled “Invent or Get Sent” and the six remaining DJs were faced with a task of using their turntables as an instrument. Shush all those haters who say that DJs don’t make ‘real’ music. While the DJs were perfecting their sets, Lil Jon popped into the lab for his guest judging duties adorned in his signature sunglasses and intoned to the group “You’re not going to lose if you have the whole place going nuts.”
Perhaps one of the more impressive competitions, a majority of the DJs really dazzled with their cue point skills and creativity. DJ Dynamix got everyone laughing and hollering by looping 2Chainz’s “I’m Different” and inserting each of his fellow MOTM DJs’ names following the rapper’s growling “middle finger up to my competition” in succession. In the end, Lil’ Jon and the judges voted to have DJ Chris Karns take home the week’s prize of a Numark 4TRAK. Unfortunately DJ Fly Guy just couldn’t take the heat and his sloppy set got his record scratched, making him the 14th DJ sent home this season.
Next week on Master of the Mix the top five DJs hit the turntables competing to become one step closer to a quarter of a million dollars. In the challenge, the DJs must spin the same set of 10 songs across musical genres and styles. Can they really mix it up?
