This looks like a pretty wild time. If you are on the west coast or headed that way, I strongly suggest this event. Mainly because Eric Prydz is playing both days, once as Cirez D and then as himself. Such a badass. Anyways, lots of other dope acts performing as well, such as Duke Dumont and Benoit & Sergio, or if you like to get weird, Skrillex and Deadmau5 will be throwing down. Oh and Calvin Harris too. Go tell him to play some “original shit” and see what he says. And I’ll stop there…you can read the flyer.
The most recent Essential New Tune on BBC Radio 1 comes from one of the brightest French Express stars, Chris Malinchak, following up his latest melter “So Good To Me“. If you’re a follower of the French Express team and/or BBC Radio 1, then I’m sure you were already aware of this tune as it was the second song of Perseus & Jonas Rathsman’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, but the good news is now that Tong has previewed it, that means the release is finally somewhere on the horizon. Which is hot. If you happened to miss the aforementioned essential mix (shame on you) I’ve added it underneath as a little bonus. One of the best mixes out there. Guaranteed to make you smile.
Aeroplane brings the funk in a major way in this latest mix. And I respect the shit out of it. Pretty swag to spin some real old school shit and add that new school flair to it. Great vibes here. Makes my Friday a hell of a lot better. Thursday nights are tough. My body is telling me to stop…but I want more. Realistically…I just have to accept that Fridays are going to be a struggle. Anyways, enjoy the tuneage. Fonkay music and lemon lime Gatorade. And I’m fine today.
As the beatport top 10 gets “louder” every week (a story for another time), there’s something refreshing about partying without having a 0 db hover thrown in your face every time a song peaks.
You can’t always be in the mood to jump around and spill drinks all over yourself – at least not at the beginning of your night anyways. Sometimes sitting back with friends, throwing back a few (or more) cocktails, and watching the beautiful people pass through the smoke is the way to go. You’ll know when to make your move.
As a wise man once said, “you don’t have to face the Dj to enjoy the party or the music”.
Case and point – Alex Metric’s August mix. Download & Enjoy.
