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.
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.
Ultra Music Festival is a wrap and although many of us could only watch it on YouTube, we all feel a little depressed that it’s over. Seeing the best in the world, pull out all of the stops is what makes Ultra the premiere music festival here in America. We heard countless unreleased tracks, saw some unusual collaborations, all while drinking with our closest friends on couches across the country. Well now you can relive the experiences as we have collected sets throughout the weekend that you can stream and download. Many of these sets were posted by our friends or other blogs and we have simply compiled them all in one place. We would rather work smart than work hard if we can! Download them all if you want and be sure to check out the tracklists below!

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).
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!
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”)
