The Tour The World Heard Baauer’s Unreleased Music Via USBs

DJs have been getting creative lately when it comes to bringing a little spice to what goes on at their shows while on tour. Beyond getting to experience the music that we love in a live setting, I think it makes the show exceedingly better when there’s something unique about every show. Although it’s not a new thing, we have Steve Aoki who always randomly selects one lucky fan in every crowd and “cakes them” in the face with a delicious eyes, ears, and mouthful of it. Who wouldn’t want that?

More recently, Felix Cartal has started a genius idea of putting a disposable camera in the hands of one trusting fan at every stop of his tour. He allows them to snap photos of anything, anyone, and everything⎯which can probably get a little risqué, as you could imagine. Once the camera’s film has been completely used up, they give it back to him at the end of the night, he eventually puts the photos up on his Facebook, and we all get a good laugh. Each album never ceases to be full of outrageous phenomenons, yet every photo is beautiful in their own way, believe it or not. As cool as professional photos are, they’re no where near as cool as these. You can actually feel the magic and how fun the show was by seeing all of the wildness up close and personal. Naturally, every show is always different, consisting of a different crew of crazy party animals, so it’s definitely one of the most interesting tour projects I’ve heard of. Continue Reading…

Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas- Singularity Remix EP

Today, Steve Aoki and Angger Dimas released their Singularity Remix EP featuring amazing vocals by My Name Is Kay with three outstanding tracks remixed by Tim Mason, Oliver Twizt, and Topher Jones. Are you ready to dance? If not, you’ve been warned. And in all honesty, you can’t expect anything less, especially with Aoki in the mix. I can already see myself getting gracefully caked in the face to these bangers and loving every tasteful second of it. These amazing collaborations including some of the hottest artists in the game, explode with so much power and are all tweaked differently, yet so perfectly. Topher Jones brings a lot of airy and melodic sounds in at the beginning of his remix and then completely switches and cranks the hardcore-ness up a couple of levels. Tim Mason brings some head bangin’ progressive house to the table, while Oliver Twizt takes the trap route. Once you hear one and think that it was good, you’ll be blown away once again after you play the next. You know what they say, good things always come in threes, and these guys prove it right.

Review: Mix Mash Pool Party Miami 2013

Ooo the Mix Mash Pool Party, my introduction to pool parties during Miami Music Week, and what a pool party it was. As the ticket suggested, my crew and I arrived at the National Hotel before 2pm, WARNING, never listen to the ticket because at much as you want to be guaranteed entry, no one really gets there at that time and it just makes waiting for night fall more exhausting. We walked through the main lobby of the hotel, which struck me as a bit odd and out the the back of the lobby through the restaurant where the pool area was revealed. The biggest portion of the pool was closest to the back of the lobby while the stage was on the complete other end of the pool and then some. As we walked the length of the pool, the pool began to be more and more populated. As we reached the end we put down our stuff, spread our towels out and got a few drinks to start off the day. As opposed to other pool parties that I attended that week, the Mix Mash pool party was less about the cabanas and the bottle service and more about just being on your feet and having a good time or being in the pool and socializing with your fellow EDM fans. The stage was fairly small, but the area surrounding it in front of the pool was fairly large and the floor was covered with sand, which added to the experience.

OneRepublic – Feel Again (Tai Remix)

I’m not very familiar with OneRepublic, a Pop/Rock band from Colorado, but I AM familiar with German producer Tai who is signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak records. It’s amazing to see how Tai took a pop ballad and turned it into an Electro-House banger (which dropped yesterday). But that’s why this guy is signed to one of the biggest Electro record labels out there, right? I really do like the breaks of this song and they make the drop that much more fun. Check it out and make sure to support Tai by Liking his Facebook page and by purchasing the song upon its release in the U.S. (only out in Germany right now).

Bonus:
I was poking around Tai’s SoundCloud page and found this awesome remix of his newest release “Steroid”. The remix was done by Modek who hails from Belgium. The remix is a funky little track with a heavy drop, giving you the best of two worlds. Check out Modek’s SoundCloud page for more!
