With all of the success Dillon Francis has been having as of late, he has graciously dropped a rebirth of his love ballad Drunk All The Time (Ft. Simon Lord.) The original first came out on his debut album Money Sucks Friends Rule. The album currently sits number 7 on iTunes dance charts and jumped as high as number 2 on the Billboard Dance Charts. We have been following Dillon for a long time now, and it is great to see him getting the recognition he deserves. Make sure you grab this one for FREE and be sure to check out a show when Dillon comes to your city.
The stars have aligned for my return home to Boston for Thanksgiving. Perhaps one of my favorite artists of all time, Eric Prydz, climbs behind the decks at Royale for what will undoubtedly be a show to remember on Friday November 28th. Part of me is a little tired of writing about Prydz and if you’ve been with us for the past few years you’ve seen me talk about the plethora of stellar releases he’s put out over that time. Back in August I wrote about Pryda 028 hitting the Beatport #1 in a mere 24 hours and for good reason. I’ve seen Prydz spin fantastic sets across the country at a number of events, including one at the defunct Ocean Club in Boston, but there’s something about my homecoming intertwining with Prydz’s first show at Royale that seems extra special. Maybe it’s because Royale became one of my home bases for dance music when I lived in Boston, seeing acts like Nero, Feed Me, Mat Zo, Mord Fustang, Laidback Luke, Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Madeon, A-Trak and so many more – and I’m looking forward to adding Prydz to that list.
Next Friday fans at Royale can expect music across the Eric Prydz spectrum. We’ll get tunes from his more-mainstream Eric Prydz alias, some amazing progressive music off the Pryda side of things, and undoubtedly some hard-hitting Techno thanks to Cirez D. And even though it’s been done so many times around the world, I’d be ecstatic to hear Eric Hit Us With Those Laser Beams.
From what I hear there are very limited tickets remaining for this one and it is sure to be a sell-out show. Whether or not you’re a fan of Eric Prydz, but you’re a fan of going on musical journeys – do everything you can to hang with the Boston MMIBTY crew and mr. Prydz himself.
Boston’s Bamboora has made a name for himself around New England and the greater Northeast area as a polished DJ who has been destroying clubs, concert venues, and arenas over the years. Boston may not be a top-tier dance music city, but Bamboora has certainly propelled himself to household name status around the greater New England area when it comes to guys who consistently tear the house down. I’ve seen Bamboora spin everywhere from The House of Blues to Ocean Club to Splash, Prime, and even the humble Club Metronome in Burlington VT. Bamboora has always had a knack for spinning tunes that thrash around, get parties started, and flow into each other with flawless mixing [check out the exclusive mix he did for us HERE].
On the more recent side of things Bamboora has elevated his game to the next level. No longer is Bamboora just a DJ, he’s also a music producer. Today I’m here to present to you Bam’s newest track “Tizona” which dropped on Friday for FREE DOWNLOAD. Having heard Bamboora’s productions since they first started coming out, I can say with confidence “Tizona” is my favorite track of his to date. I’m not much of a fan of Big Room House anymore, but I certainly have a soft spot for some quality Electro-House which is what this track gives us. “Tizona” is a straight up banger with minimal vocals yet enough drums, bass, and electro-goodness to keep this listener satisfied.
It’s great to see how much Bamboora has grown as an artist and I wish him nothing but continued success. If you like what you hear let Bamboora know! And to all my Boston family reading this I’m looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible next week.
Los Angeles-based artist Summer School has been busy making fresh music, and it has been paying off. This latest release, “Control” is a great new track that combines multiple genres for a fresh new flavor.
“Control” resembles everything from trance, to techno, to house and beyond. The buildup is a refreshing mix of steadily building beats that lead to a drop that will take your right to the middle of the dance floor. This catchy track is the kind that will be stuck in your head for days and will surely require multiple plays.
Summer School is really starting to take off as an artist, making it into more mainstream playlists. Don’t miss out on this awesome track, as well as the rest of this artists’ dope musical style.
Kanye West certainly deserves a lot of credit for giving us some of the most influential verses in modern hip-hop and its no surprise that his music has become part of music history. Dance music is no stranger to weaving Kanye’s music into its culture and we once again have a fine example of it being done again. In true-to-name fashion, Someonehad2doit delivers a track that can’t rightfully be called a mashup, despite its combination of elements from “Slaves” and “Mercy.” This is G-house gone deeper, extremely well executed and is a dance floor killer. Use it at your own risk.
Since we’re on a Kanye kick and I heard this oldie the other day, I figured I’d include it. This one never gets old…
Today I was pleasantly surprised to find that one of my favorite indie-dance tracks, the Griswolds single Beware The Dog, had gotten the Autograf remix treatment. Keeping the vibes future tropical and bringing some really awesome vocal filters and effects to the table really make this remix a must have. The additional flute riff and well-chosen vocal hooks only add to the message of the original track, unfortunately, this one will cost you a couple bucks on iTunes but stream away below!
