EVENT: HARD Day of the Dead 2013 [Nov. 1 & 2]

20131009-154639.jpg

 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.

PREVIEW: Andrew Bayer – Need Your Love (incl. Phonat Remix) [Anjunabeats]

BQX8Ry_CQAApJWu.jpg largeThe original was released with his album If It Were You, We’d Never Leave, but if for some crazy reason you haven’t bought or don’t want to buy the masterpiece in its entirety, Anjunabeats is releasing a single package which is to include Phonat‘s remix and, hopefully, the ever-teased ‘Club Mix’. Coming off his EP for Skrillex‘s OWSLA, Phonat continues to deliver with some really awesome forward thinking electronic music. Still think the original takes the cake, but we’ll see just how epic that club mix is this Friday for its world premiere on ABGT039.

Release date: August 5th

So, in efforts to make up for our mistake, we are serving up a shit ton of music to you guys…most of it free, so enjoy. This weeks post will feature mixes from Aeroplane, Bogdan, and one of our favorite local acts, The Knocks. Later in the post you will get some individual tracks from a plethora of artists that have that one essential thing in common…ze funky beats. Enjoy kids.

Now we got some individual tracks that will surely have those asses shakin’ till the mornin’ light. And if you don’t like dancing, steer clear…well what I meant to say is, fuck off.

Yea, that’s right. Dillon Francis gets funky too, just in a more..how you say….letsgetfuckingweird way. This track is going to be insane.

Only good vibes here. Vocals crush it. DCUP takes care of the beats, and he’s always on point. Night time = Dance time.

All we are asking on this one is…do you like to get deep? Cause we do. Frequently. This one is out on Nov 12th via Defected Records. Nick Curly, you’re a legend. Respect brotha.

Chill electronic vibes, breaks, vocal sampling, dope synths, etc. This track has everything. Never thought a remix of a Skrillex track could sound better than the original, but here you go. Blende’s baseline on the drop and overall production genius make this one an absolutely ESSENTIAL free download.

Here is one for the night cap this evening. Turn down the lights. Maybe light some candles. Press play. Make love (gentle, but firm…very firm). Repeat.

Sorry I didn’t post more…crunched for time. But this should satisfy you for now. Happy donsing children. Wilki out.

PREVIEW: MONSTA – Holdin On (Skrillex & Nero Remix) [OWSLA]

This song has been up on Soundcloud for 1 day, and it has over 205,000 plays and 2,200 favorites. Combine that with media coverage, Spotify, iTunes pre-orders, other social media applications like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube…and you have the hottest unreleased track right now. I mean…it is Skrillex and Nero on a remix. That usually ends up proving to be a good idea. “Promises” seemed to do pretty well. Enjoy the preview.

MIXTAPE: Mixmag Live – Exclusive Minimix [Free Download]

Rarely do I find myself throwing up strictly dubstep posts, but for all you wompers and bassbabies out there, this one is for you. Skrillex’s newest act on OWSLA is called a trio that call themselves Monsta. They were on the remix EP for Zedd’s Spectrum recently and just put up this minimix for Mixmag on his soundcloud last week. Pretty wild shit. Now enough bullshit. Proceed to lose face.
