MASSIVE Monday Morning Music ~ Featuring R3hab’s One and Only Remix

I think we all could use some R3HAB after the crazy weekend!  R3HAB, the dutch producer who who’s made his fair share of HUGE originals and countless official remixes this past year blasts with another hard hitting electro house remix of Cherry Cherry Boom Boom’s ‘One And Only’.  Within the first hour of being released, this track has already exploded in the EDM interwebz. With his own  dirty twists of bass and synths,  R3HAB takes this track to a whole new level. You won’t even need coffee after you tune into this energy packed track!

A Few Weekend Tunes by Tommy Trash, Felix Cartal, and Nicky Romero & Calvin Harris

Still reveling in Electric Zoo 2012 and unforgettable sets by guys like Tommy Trash, I figured I’d take this opportunity to post a few tracks that will surely get your weekends started the right way. The first one comes to us from Trash himself and it’s a bootleg he’s been playing on tour as well as his most recent podcast, Trashed Episode 002: “Sending My Flashback”. This is a mashup of  Calvin Harris‘ “Flashback” and Tommy Trash’s remix of “Sending My Love” by Swanky Tunes and R3hab. Tommy released it yesterday and it’s pretty awesome.

Next up is a track that our co-founder bhanna was glad I didn’t post when it dropped on Monday, but after listening to it several times I can’t avoid it: Nicky Romero & Calvin Harris’ “Iron”. Yeah, two Calvin Harris tracks in a row… he’s a pretty big deal I think it’s allowed. Nicky Romero dropped this bomb at EZoo and even made a wrap-up video surrounding it. I like it and I think you will too. (Right-Click “Save As”)

Lastly is a remix by a man who goes by the name Felix Cartal and the track is “Tornado” by Steve Aoki & Tiesto. Felix Cartal is very underrated in my opinion and I’ve seen him kill sets live a few times. And to our Boston readers out there, guess what: he’s coming to the House of Blues on Monday with the Life in Color Tour – I highly recommend you check him out. Tornado was dropped last year, but the remix package just came out a few days ago and features work by Angger Dimas and Kill the Noise in addition to Felix Cartal (whose version is my favorite). Crank it! (Right-Click “Save As”)

Life In Color 2012 Ups The Ante With More DJ’s, More Dates and, Of Course, More Paint

The tour formerly known as Dayglow is making 2012 the year it demands to be taken seriously. The name change is just the beginning. While the gimmick (or attraction, depending on how you look at it) hasn’t changed, the announcement of 2012′s 30-date The E.N.D. (Electronic Never Dies) tour has brought excitement far beyond what just the paint can, with exciting young stars like Tommy Trash, Felix Cartal, and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and big name DJ’s like Steve Angello, Dada Life and Bingo Players, all joining the ranks of veterans like Sander Van Doorn, Laidback LukeAxwell, Chuckie and Benny Benassi, to name a few.

Though Dayglow/Life In Color has always seemed a little too – I don’t know – juvenile for me, when I thought more about it, maybe that’s not the case. I had a conversation with a friend of mine recently and the topic of Sensation had come up, specifically the announced Sensation Innerspace dates coming up at the end of October at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. When talking about who we thought might appear in the lineup, my friend told me something interesting from his experience. When Sensation travels to the almost 20 countries it hosts parties in, the lineup is not paramount but rather the experience. Sensation parties are supposed to be some of the best in the world but not because of the big names they get to play there. People willingly go, no questions asked, knowing that whoever plays, the show will be something you will never forget. It’s an odd concept to us Americans who have become completely used to picking what shows and festivals to go to based almost entirely on who’s playing (and, ironically, get mad when David Guetta, among others, is accused of just “pressing play” on stage). Surely any DJ worth his weight can get up there and play good music, maybe even some stuff we’ve never heard before, right? Yep. And when good music is accompanied by stimulating visuals, great sound and other experience-enhancing aspects present at Sensation-type parties (Barstool Blackout, anyone?), does it really matter who’s playing? No, it doesn’t.

So, while I may be guilty of my motivation to see names like Tommy Trash or Felix Cartal throw down again, I now am prepared to go to Life In Color with the understanding that it is an experience. The paint part, as gimmicky as it sounds, is probably going to make for an experience like I’ve never had at an electronic show before, whether that be for better or for worse. But like they say, you can’t knock it ’till you try it. And as long as I know the music’s going to be good, there’s no place I’d rather be anyway. If you’ve never been to Dayglow, don’t get me wrong, I understand your reasons. I’ve never been for many of the same reasons I’m sure. Something tells me, though, that if there ever were a time to give it a shot, it’s this tour. Plus, my nether regions cannot ignore an opportunity to see scantily-clad girls wearing at most a paint-soaked white T-shirt.

Afrojack’s “Jacked America Tour” Lands in Boston

Check out the full photo gallery HERE

As we jumped out of the cab onto Landsdowne Street, I was immediately engulfed by neon clothing and people already bouncing around in line at House of Blues…..clearly the JACKED tour had landed in Boston. First thing that was made clear from the crowd waiting to get inside (or thrown out already at 9pm), was that this was an all ages show. Although I respect music reaching the youth of the world, I am a firm believer that shows like this in venues like these should be at least 18+….Point made, rant over. Making our way inside, we opened the doors and were greeted by the sounds of R3hab. Already getting the crowd moving with his popular remixes and hard hitting electo sounds, you could feel the hype surrounding the lineup for the evening.
