Milk N Cookies Are ‘Bout To Be More Than Your Favorite Midnight Snack

The other day, I was just casually making my rounds on Facebook, trollin’ and patrolin’ just like every other night of the week, when I suddenly stumbled upon a video that one of my friends had liked. Interested, I clicked on it to find two beautiful, blonde bombshells in a couple of snapbacks and muscle tanks making a video from their laptop. Naturally, I decided to press play and see what these guys were all about. It’s safe to safe they were just giving us a preview of a new track they had been working on. I know how that introduction may have sounded, but it wasn’t any “mix your milk with my cocoa puff” type ish.

First of all, let me just say that these dudes are straight up crazy, yet hilarious. It’s almost like they’re on a whole other level of their own. I soon came to discover that they were two twin brothers from Chicago, James (Milk) and Paul (Cooks). They’re the creators and producers of some really dope music, making magic under the name of Milk N Cookies. From solely watching that video and reading the comments on it, it was clear to me how passionate these bros were about what they do, while also fooling around and connecting with their fans. That’s definitely the first thing I loved about them. When I started to explore their music, I realized how amazing their stuff really was. Continue Reading…

John Dahlback – Nuke

One of my favorite Swedish producers is back with another banger: John Dahlback. Today he released “Nuke” on Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings and it goes hard in a way that only Dahlback can manifest. I thought the title was an interesting choice because although it screams “banger alert”, Wolfgang Gartner released a song by the same name last year that is equally as destructive to dance floors. “Nuke” has a grimy Electro feel to it, with unique sounds that Dahlback never ceases to come up with, including a chopped-up vocal sample throughout the drop. My one complaint, however, is after the first drop the song drops off to some more melodic chords. Dahlback seems to do this a lot with his epic bangers, perhaps to build up more excitement for the second drop. Whatever the reason, I really dig the way this track hits and as always I’ll be excited to hear what he comes up with next.

By the way, if anyone knows where I can find his 2008 Essential Mix, kindly point me in the right direction.

In Case You Missed It: Nicky Romero Put Down the Chainsaw on “Still the Same Man”

Maybe it’s just me but I feel like it’s been a while since Nicky Romero released a song that either wasn’t a chainsaw Electro-House destroyer (“Toulouse”, “Generation 303″, “Iron”) or a poppy track a la “Wild One Two”, “Like Home”, or “I Could Be the One”. In all honesty I feel like Nicky’s last big track that fits the above description is his remix of Green Velvet’s “Flash” which was a monster hit back in 2011 (released in 2010).

In case you missed it, Nicky Romero released this track “Still the Same Man” in collaboration with John Christian and Nilson last Monday February 4th. Released on Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records, it’s an upbeat and funky Tech-House song that upon hearing it for the first time made me immediately go and download it. Of course I heard it on Mark Knight’s weekly podcast (#150) which, by the way, I highly recommend you subscribe to if you like any sort of underground Tech-House and/or Deep House. I featured John Christian’s remix of Nicky Romero & Avicii’s “I Could Be the One” last week and it was quite the Electro-House banger. Maybe Nilson is the Tech-House influence on this track as he’s been known to combine groovy Tech and Progressive House on his productions. Either way, this one is a gem – crank it with your next cocktail.

The Finding Nemo Mix by MMIBTY Co-Founder GBallz

On Friday during Winter Storm Nemo (I still can’t believe we’re naming every single storm now…) I decided to record a new mix. Given the fact that I have been really into Deep House and Tech House recently, and the fact that I had the pleasure of seeing Jacques Greene throw down an awesome set Thursday night at the Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge, I thought I’d take the mix in a Deep and funky direction. Depending on how familiar you are with songs off the beaten path, you may recognize some of the tracks but there’s a good chance you won’t know all of them. A lot of the songs are new within the last few months and almost all of them are from 2012 and 2013, with a surprise throwback to close out the set.

I really think you’ll like what you hear as the feedback has been great so far. Check it out and let me know what you think! Tracklist after the jump
