Prydz’s version seems to be sped up a bit, like a better Alcala remix. The Swedish mastermind never ceases to amaze his adoring fan base with his productions. The indie-pop makeover seems to be the current trend for producers.
Prydz is notorious for his Western Hemisphere-less career as he has a phobia of flying and rarely leaves Europe. As reported a few weeks ago, rumors were swirling about a North American tour, but those always seem to be swirling. Nothing has been heard from since.
Let’s hope, one day, we can hear this private remix live in New York, from Prydz himself.
Today Sander van Doorn brings you a Boxing Day gift of both the Beatport release and music video for What Did I Do, his collaboration with Kele of Bloc Party. This track displays van Doorn’s continued ability to make a diverse stable of big room heavy hitters. Be sure to hear this track live when he visits NYC for a Pacha headlining gig January 28.

How I love Lavo Thursdays. I would say that weekly I endure a mental struggle between: should I go see one of the best DJs in the world spin at an intimate club, or should I be good and not be hungover at work tomorrow? In most cases the former wins and I rarely regret it. Since its inception a bit over a year ago, Lavo has consistently brought in top talent that has given the spot a reputation as one of the best places to indulge in house music in the city. From Chuckie to Dada Life to Afrojack, a vast number of EDM stars who make it to NYC find their way to the DJ booth at Lavo. I’m certainly not complaining.
Last Thursday I headed to Midtown to check out Bob Sinclar, who may be one of the more recognizable names in EDM because of his genre crossing ways and megahits such as “World Hold On” which even my 13 year old cousin knows. His reggae and EDM bending tracks are catchy, danceable and likable by most everyone. His set at Lavo featured mostly his vast discography, to no disappointment. (more…)
Nicky Romero is one of my favorites amongst the talented crop of new DJs emerging to take over in 2012. His Toulouse hit #1 in the progressive house Beatport chart yesterday, a huge coup for such a young guy. Today Nicky brought us a small taste of his remix of Kelly Clarkson – What Doesn’t Kill You, slated for release by Sony Records January 9. Here we see the continuation of the pop/electronic crossover relationship that is rapidly developing. Nicky displays his diverse production talents nicely in this track, utilizing his signature distorted drops and bringing an element of calm via interluding piano.

Who doesn’t love Christmas, its a time of giving and getting presents! The beautiful Dinka decided to give away a free track in the spirit of the holiday called, ‘White Christmas.’ Filled with lots of joy and progressive charm this track is perfect for any EDM fan celebrating the holidays. Dinka also includes a Braveheart sample to raise the cheerful and loving energy that this track gives. Download the free track HERE, Cheers!
Kim Fai has taken a bit of a hiatus the past couple of months and fortunately, the man is back in action. The release of ‘L.I.C’ is the mark of his rebirth back into the EDM world. People started to worry about Kim since basically the last big thing he dropped was his ‘Party Rock’ remix. Notoriously known for his progressive bangers, ‘L.I.C’ is just what the doctor ordered, filled with fantastic melodies and piano riffs. In the spirit of Christmas, Kim was nice enough to give this one away for free. To get this track, simply click HERE and ‘like’ his page and the rest is self explanatory. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas! Well almost, and for an early present Santa brought you a brand new ZeddÂ preview for his upcoming release ‘Slam The Door.’ Not much since its a teaser but I have a feeling this is going to be a goodie since he has been on a roll with his last two huge releases, ‘Shave It‘ and ‘Stars Come Out.’ Look out for the release on OWSLA, January 3rd, 2012.
I always hate seeing the “much anticipated” title in front of artist’s EP’s or their new singles, but Skrillex‘s new EP definitely deserves the “much anticipated”. The buzz surrounding Sonny Moore is at an all time high. When any EDM musician gets nominated for Grammy’s not only within their realm, but in the overall spectrum of music, it’s a pretty big deal.
Now, back to the topic of this post, this EP rocks. The tracks that feature Sirah (‘Kyoto’, ‘Bangarang’) are both legit but both have been featured in almost all of his recent shows. My particular highlights include his track ‘Summit” with Ellie Goulding. Her voice comes from the heavens and to put it with a down tempo almost prog trance like track is just awesome. I definitely enjoy ‘The Devil’s Den’ with Wolfgang Gartner as well, I love the reggae undertones. All in all, quite impressed.
Stay tuned for more huge news from Sonny Moore because the man has big things planned for 2012 which hopefully includes him bringing home a few Grammy’s.
