Deadmau5 – Strobe (Shemce Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

After a wild and exhausting weekend (writeup on Lightning in a Bottle to come), I was scanning my SoundCloud feed today for something relatively mellow yet still worth writing about. Of course when I saw that Shemce had remixed the timeless classic “Strobe” by Deadmau5 I knew half my work was done… I just had to listen and make sure this was something worth talking about. Well sure enough I found my feature for today because, frankly, unless you’re a complete moron it’s pretty hard to fuck up a song as good as “Strobe”. Of course I say this with respect to any notable producer out there, because if you’re going to attempt a remix of this track you know it needs to be of the highest quality.

So, our boy Shemce remixed “Strobe” without any complaints from me. Shemce’s remix keeps the same melodies that made Strobe popular, but gets right to the point without as much of the buildup. Shemce adds deeper bass lines and additional layers of melody, and it’s something that really flows well to help me through my post-long-weekend haze. In case you aren’t familiar with Shemce, I posted his remix of Notorious BIG’s “Juicy” last Summer and that is without a doubt worth a listen.

Here’s what’s been written about Shemce’s remix of “Strobe”:

My take on the legendary “Strobe” by the legendary Deadmau5 . . . .

– Shemce

Shemce is back at it with his lush remix of fellow Canadian, Deadmau5’s, Strobe. This track takes the classic tune and flips it into a thick layered summer jam with spacey bridges that snap back into heavy house rhythms. Complex layers give the familiar chords new depth and an indie-dance vibe that Shemce has become known for. Grab this one as a free download!

Jason Burns & Sarah Winters – Lightweight (Dr. Fresch Remix)

Dr. Fresch has definitely had a productive year, as we approach the halfway point of 2015 we have already seen a handful of remixes from the solo producer. Today Dr. Fresch released his newest track entitled Lightweight featuring the impressive vocals of Jason Burns and Sarah Winters. The doctor slowed it down a bit with this one moving away from the huge G-house tracks and showing us a more melodic side of Dr. Fresch. However this track still has a really fun and bouncy dance floor ready baseline which is complemented nicely by all sorts of synths. If you aren’t familiar with Dr. Fresch be sure to head over to his Soundcloud and check out all the awesome free tunes he has available. Cannot wait to find out what summer has in store for Dr. Fresch, because as you already know this dude is on a roll right now!

Madonna – Hung Up (Unknown Associates & Colour Castle Remix) [FREE DOWNLOAD]

How about a nice groovy Deep House tune to get your week started? No club bangers here, but some nice blissful Deep House perfect for winding down your night or for play by the pool. Our friend Boyd Barnes, who is a member of Unknown Associates out of Sydney/Wollongong, sent me this track today. It’s a remix Unknown Associates did with fellow Aussie Colour Castle (whose remix of “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” I posted last year) of one of their favorite Madonna tracks “Hung Up”. The whole Unknown collective is celebrating its second birthday and they are preparing to drop their Dance Education Vol. 2 EP very soon.

I’m quite impressed by the work Boyd, Trent Elliott and their team do and they’ve only continued to get bigger and better. From the excellent House tracks to the live set I had the pleasure of seeing Boyd spin at the Holy Ship preparty this year, things seem to be going in the right direction for our friends down under! Make sure to grab the free download HERE and check out the EP when it drops!

What The Festival 2015 [Full Lineup Revealed]

Get your reading glasses, folks. What The Festival has revealed the rest of the musical acts set to take over Wolf Run Ranch on Dufur, Oregon this June– and quite frankly, it’s a doozey. We were already pretty mesmerized by the Phase 1 lineup, but now there’s even more to be excited about. Headliners Big Gigantic, Odesza, GRiZ, and Keys N Krates are now joined by Thomas Jack, billed here as Thomas Jack’s Tropical Pool Party, which might just be the coolest pool party I’ll ever go to in my life. The support bill has now grown exponentially too, including highlights such as West Coast Bass mastermind Minnesota, the always amazing Anna Lunoe, and UK producer Ambassadeurs, to name a few of many stunning new additions.

I’m not breaking any new ground here when I tell you this lineup is absolutely stacked. What The Festival is known for its diverse and excellent musical lineups, but it is also known for its breathtaking scenery, a grandiose art walk, and some of the best vibes this side of the Mississippi. Having never been to the festival, we are excited to take Wolf Run Ranch by storm and fully immerse ourselves in the What The Festival experience. As evidenced below, this experience is going to have one helluva killer soundtrack.

See you guys on the Ranch! Keep an eye out for more What The Festival preview content, including our favorite acts and music playlists.

MMIBTY Radio 003 Feat. Emanate

Hey My Music Is Better Than Yours family!

We are proud to announce our 3rd installment of MMIBTY Radio will be aired this FRIDAY the 20th at 12 PM featuring the dynamic duo from Mioli Music, Emanate! Emanate (Emily & Nate) fell in love with the mystique of electronic music at an early age. Nathan Vain knew right away what his future passion held when he acquired his first turntables at the age of 17. Emily Fox took a different route starting her journey in the music scene as an organizer and promoter. This endeavor lead to landing Nathan his first residency at a popular after hours spot back in 2001. A few years down the road and a desire for their success growing strong they moved to San Francisco together and started producing music as Emanate.

Nathan enhanced his knowledge of music and the industry working at DanceRecords.com from ‘04 to ‘09 as a Content Manager. That was followed by a stint interning at the Mothership / Dirtybird labels. He also spent some time at the DJTechTools office working with midi controllers and software.

Emily has developed her understanding of Electronic music culture by throwing various events throughout San Francisco over the years. She also spent some time as a member of (a few) bands where she was writing songs, singing and playing keyboard. Emily’s next logical step became DJing, as a way to expand her talents and performance needs. Following the path of natural evolution they started up their own label Mioli Music in 2010 (Move It Or Lose It). Since 2010 they’ve released music as Emanate and individually. They have also signed various international artists on Mioli.

These two have put together such an amazing show for us this week, don’t forget to check them and their music out throughout this week leading up to the shows air time! Click on the like and share button below and show Emanate to all of the homies!

Borgeous & Shaun Frank – This Could Be Love [The Rooftop Boys Remix]

New York deep house duo The Rooftop Boys are bringing us some much needed fresh tropical vibes in the middle of winter with their take on the Borgeous and Shaun Frank original This Could Be Love. This being our first encounter with The Rooftop Boys I was happily pleased with the detailed builds containing layer after layer of intricate and creative noises. The Rooftop Boys really utilize a wide variety of sounds without cluttering the track yet still maintaining a solid and energetic pace from start to finish. Nicely sampled vocals from the original are sure to keep any crowd chanting along to the beat, so head over to The Rooftop Boys Soundcloud and grab yourself a copy of this one for free. We cannot wait to see what this budding east coast duo has in store for the future, hopefully more of the same!
