AC Slater & ETC!ETC! Remix Lil Wayne + Slater’s New DJ Mix

AC Slater and ETC!ETC! I guess had some free time a little while back when Lil Wayne came on the iPod shuffle. What happened next can only be defined as a couple of talented producers having too much fun fun together. Maintaining the classic vocals were essential, everything after that was up for grabs. A funky tech drop hits just when you don’t expect it, turning this hip hop beast into more of a club beat. I’m sure to have fun with this one over the weekend, hope you do to.

AC Slater’s Soundcloud has seen something of a rebirth over the last week with the release of Clap Bitches and the Wayne Remix as well as an all new DJ Mix! In Like a Lion hits some serious levels of hard as Slater tears through a relentless amount of new material. You can hear the trap emerging in his work, although the DnB will never die for this guy. Yet another great mix to throw into your collection to get you hyped for the big evening to come!

Robotic Pirate Monkey – Jungle Tales Vol. 2

Robotic Pirate Monkey has been no stranger to this blog in the past as they continue to innovate and evolve their sound and musical selection. Consistantly pumping out orginials for the low cost of free, it has been hard to ignore the groups’ slow rise to fame over the past few years. Now, you can find the dynamic threesome traveling around the states opening for some of our favorite acts as well as always fitting in time to play for the hometown fans in the Boulder/Denver area. Releasing remixes has been a staple of the RPM brand, although it has been a little over two years since they released the first of the RPM remix EP series – ‘Jungle Tales Vol.1′ and we are more excited then ever to share Vol.2 with you. Straying further from their dubstep roots we get a look at the future of RPM as they fuse melodic accents and some big bass into these classic tunes. This 5-track compilation remixes a variety of genres, featuring artists such as – The Rolling Stones, Lil Wayne, Slightly Stoopid, and more!

Slightly Stoopid – Top of the World (Robotic Pirate Monkey Remix)
Robotic Pirate Monkey – Northface Giggles (Robotic Pirate Monkey Remix)
Lil Wayne – Steady Mobbin (Robotic Pirate Monkey Remix)
Tim McMorris – Overwhelmed (Robotic Pirate Monkey Remix)
The Rolling Stones – She’s Like a Rainbow (Robotic Pirate Monkey Remix)

Electro Avenue Vol. 1 Featuring Lazy Rich, Jack Beats, R3hab, and More!

Welcome to the first of many in our new series: Electro Avenue. This segment will feature the best tracks from the world of Electro-House, whether they’re newly released or something we’ve dug out of the crates – taking this avenue will make your heads nod and your speakers shake!

First up I have a bangin’ remix by someone we’ve named the “King of Electro-House” – and that’s Lazy Rich. Granted this remix dropped on Beatport back at the end of January, it’s been on heavy rotation for me especially after hearing it on Minero’s guest mix as part of the Lazy Rich Show podcast. You don’t really see what Lazy Rich adds to the song until the 2:30 mark but at that point the drop is so heavy it makes you gush. Combine that with some sexy lyrics by Tegan and Sara and you have a winner.

Morgan Page ft. Tegan and Sara – Body Work (Lazy Rich Remix)

Next is a brand new remix by Dutch producer R3hab. This kid has blown up over the past year with crisp productions and songs that hit hard. He’s been known to take Top 40s tracks and remix them into dance floor destroyers and this one is no exception. It may be one of the more typical “Electro-House” tracks he’s produced and I’m not in love with the fact that Chris Brown is involved with it, but hey – it works.

David Guetta ft. Chris Brown & Lil Wayne – I Can Only Imagine (R3hab Remix)

Here’s a song you’re going to either love or hate. It’s a remix of Flux Pavilion‘s recent track “Daydreamer” by the British House duo Jack Beats. They have one of the most unique sounds in the game and their take on “Daydreamer” is no exception. This one has grown on me so give it a couple chances before you’re ready to dismiss it.

Flux Pavilion – Daydreamer (Jack Beats Remix)

Steve Aoki is everywhere these days. Touring non-stop and releasing track after track. He recently collaborated with Kid Cudi & Blink 182′s Travis Barker on a track called “Cudi the Kid” which I wasn’t too pleased with. But then Tiesto turned me on to the Third Party remix and I was all about it.

Steve Aoki ft. Kid Cudi & Travis Barker – Cudi the Kid (Third Party Remix)

And just because I’ve been on a Jack Beats kick recently, here’s one of their older tracks featuring hot vocals and a typical-sounding Jack Beats….beat. I’ll have the LKiD ReRub for you soon, which is also older, but for now you’ll have to deal with the original mix.

Jack Beats – All Night ft. John B

Remember – if you like any of these songs, please support the artists who produce them and purchase them on iTunes or Beatport

Dub Edition Vol. 5

Sorry it’s been so long everyone. Haven’t really been on the prowl for enough dubstep lately. But everyone knows a little dub goes a long way so here’s a couple gems to get your heads bopping.

Always a pleasure to hear from Mr. Slater, a consistent provider of Trouble & Bass. Drake and Weezy‘s last single gets a nice bass-heavy makeover.

Drake ft. Lil Wayne – HYFR (AC Slater Remix)

New Knife Party. Not the highest quality but it’s hard to distinguish between low quality and simply disgusting noises when they’re on the production.

Knife Party – Bonfire (Teknim Extended)

No Pets Allowed has been getting a good deal of attention lately. His style, as I discussed a while back with PatrickReza, is just what the people are asking for these days. Pair that with a nice remix of Ms. Perry’s latest single and you’ve got a winner.

Katy Perry – Part of Me (No Pets Allowed Dubstep Remix)

An older song that’s only now coming to light. Really deep and powerful work here.

Mr. Wonk – Shadows

The M Machine, who, like Alvin Risk, are on OWSLA and can’t seem to be defined stylewise released this gem just last week. Gold.

The M Machine - Shadow in the Rose Garden

Nick Thayer, who is also signed to Skrillex‘s label OWSLA, teamed up with A.Skillz to put their spin on this crowd favorite. Did a tasteful job if you ask me.

Foreigner – Cold As Ice (A.Skillz and Nick Thayer Remix)

Finally, my boy Draper doing it as usual. If you don’t know him by yet, I’m disappointed that I haven’t been properly been doing my job. This one barely qualifies as dubstep but it’s a great remix and a good one to add to your collection.

Strange Talk – Eskimo Boy (Draper Remix)

BRAND NEW Paper Diamond Single and Marty Party Mix!

Got a couple of items here to finish out your weekend with a BANG. First off I have the brand new single from Paper Diamond entitled Better Things, and as usual I am once again amazed with the wide variety of sounds and tempos PD is constantly bringing to his new tracks. This song clocks in dead on at 100 beats per minute, giving it a glitch type feel but still maintaining that relaxed dubstep that we have come to expect and love from Paper Diamond.

Elm and Oak

**BONUS TRACK**: Brand new mashup artist He Said It made this mash of Paper Diamonds last hit single Can We Go Up with the help of some classic Lil Wayne and Eminem. I was skeptical at first as well but this track is guaranteed to get you dancing and the three songs work extremely well together.

He Said It – Superman Stole Weezy’s Paper Diamonds

Next up I have the best way you could possibly spend the next hour of your life. This new hour-long mix from Marty Party at 140 beats per minute and titled Purple Rage is sure to knock your socks off! From start finish this mix is hard-hitting and filled with the some of the dopest rap and hip-hop sampling from the likes of Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Wocka Flocka, and many more. If you recall the Blueberry Kush Mixtape from Marty Party was amazing, this mix is truly on another level though the progression never seems to stop over at Marty Party, and for that we thank you!
