[Artist Spotlight:] Sam F “The DJ from American Dad’s ‘Standard Deviation'”


Check out some of these great tracks by electronic producer and DJ, SAM F. His music has been featured on the popular animated show American Dad. In the episode ‘Standard Deviation’, the main character Stan must defeat his boss, Avery Bullock, in a DJ battle to avoid being sent on a suicidal CIA mission. He accomplishes this by downloading a set by “some weird guy named SAM F who had a billion likes [on Soundcloud]” as he states in the episode. Sam’s remix of “Flicka Da Wrist” appears during the episode’s most prominent scene, where Stan experiences a drug-induced trip that has him eventually winning his DJ battle.

If you know me, you know that American Dad is one of my favorite animated shows of all time. Though I grew up with MacFarlane’s parent show, Family Guy, over time Family Guy has struggled to retain its’ core audience. Episodes of Family Guy recently have gotten better, but for a time (about a year or two ago) some of the episodes seemed a little too politically charged, or had jokes that were too random, specific, or niche-driven.

[Dance/Deep Bass:] BROHUG – Ballin’ // [Bass/House:] Papiyon – Trophy


I’ve got some bass house bangers for y’all to listen to as I prepare to head off to Imagine Music Festival. This time I will try to upload my coverage of Atlanta, GA’s biggest EDM fest ASAP. I must apologize for sleeping so long on uploading my Shaky Beats 2017 footage.

[Dance/Deep Bass:] Ballin’ – BROHUG

One of my most favorite dj groups as of late, BROHUG, has been dropping new music like crazy. Like all their other music, Stockholm-based BROHUG, specializes in face-melting, panty dropping, bass shaker anthems, and “Ballin'” is no different.

Filled with high energy, lots of bass and ending out (great mixable outro by the way) with a funky bass filled beat that could easily be mixed into another party-starting banger. Check out Ballin’ above and download it for free! Check out more from BROHUG below.

[Bass/House:] Papiyon – Trophy

Next up, electronic DJ Papiyon keeps the bass dropping with “Trophy.” Also a free download, the bass laden track with dark, yet melodic overtones is an instaclassic. Guaranteed to make the party, dancefloor, wherever tf live af. Check it out and download it for free above!

[EDM Origins:] [Progressive House:] Fischerspooner – Emerge (Junkie XL Remix) // [Deep Prog. House:] Fischerspooner – The Best Revenge (Alex Gopher Remix)


You don’t need to
emerge from nothing
You don’t need, to tear away

Fischerspooner is one of the DJs that laid the foundation for much of today’s house music. The American DJ trio formed in New York, has had their music featured in movies, video games, and numerous advertisements Fischerspooner’s most popular single, Emerge, was featured in the video game SSX 3 remixed by Junkie XL. With a pounding, head nodding beat the track is everything progressive house should be. Music that you can bob your head to as it gets progressively deeper and entrancing. Check it out above.

For the best revenge, I AM!!!

On the flip side, for something a little darker, but just as deep if not more, check out “The Best Revenge.” While it may seem like the song builds up for an eternity (a tenet of true progressive house music) it is well worth it. By the last drop, once the guitars are added back into the mix and the lead vocalist screams “I AM!!!” the beat will have hit you so hard, you won’t know what has happened. Great music to fade away, nod off or daydream to.

[Future House/Club Hit:] Tchami – Godspell (feat. Taiki Nulight)


[Future House:] Tchami – Godspell (feat. Taiki Nulight)

I’m the one and only dominator

As soon as I saw Tchami and Taiki Nulight, I clicked as fast as my god-damn mouse could. I didn’t need to be told an epic track would ensue.

Hit Future House DJ, Tchami has been dropping several new songs, part of his Revelations – EP. He lays down an absolute club banger with fellow house legend Taiki Nulight with “Godspell.”

Filtered vocal samples, bass waves deep enough to break your coffee table and futuristic synths create a truly godly track. The introduction leading to the first drop and even the outro make excellent transitory songs for those who DJ.

Check out “Godspeed” above and more from both artists below.

[Commercials with Great Music] [Electronic/Bass:] Men$a – Nothing Like This (feat. Love Lola Love) // Sofi Tukker – Awoo (feat. Betta Lemme)


[Electronic & Bass:] Men$a – Nothing Like This (feat. Love Lola Love)

You never seen nothing, like this
Wait till I show you all my tricks
I’m gonna move it fast and slow
I’m gonna drop it way down low………DEM NEVA SEEN NOTHING LIKE DIS

Today’s featured track is EDM producer and DJ Men$a’s “Nothing Like This.” The song is a high-energy dance number that features heavy bass over a fairly fast BPM. Reggae dancehall samples, “Dem neva seen nothing like dis,” mix very well with the British-accented Love Lola Love‘s vocals. Her style on this track is very reminiscent of Santigold or M.I.A. The synth-break/drop is not entirely unpredictable, however the track is funky and very different nonetheless. I had heard of Men$a before but never checked out his music, if this is an indicator of his tracks I will be listening to much more Men$a from now on 🙂

Men$a’s “Nothing Like This” featured in the latest Old Navy commerical (as of mid-August 2017)

The song, released 6 days ago is featured in a new Old Navy commercial that was released 3 days ago. This likely means the song was made in conjunction with the commercial (to be released/used by Old Navy very quickly) or was made for the commercial. Typically songs made just for commercials are not released to the public (ex: Arby’s “Triple Thick Trap Remix”, most of Scion’s commercial music, etc.) The only exception’s have been songs so popular in commercials the original artist ending up having to release it or extend it (that trap number that was in Mountain Dew’s “Puppy Monkey Baby” campaign with the dancing Asian guy, ended up actually being released.)

Old Navy had another commercial this summer with some banger music. Their “Hi-Light” commercial featuring a bunch of friends hopping out of their cars at a red light and dancing til the light turns green had some notable music. Sofi Tukker’s “Awoo” was featured in the ad and is quite the spicy latin-flavored pop number itself. Be sure to check it out.

I know, I did, not raise a wrist
I know, I did, not capture it
It came (it came), it went (it went), it conquered quick
I was there, and then, I quit…

[House Remixes:] Blu Cantrell – Breathe (feat. Sean Paul) | Pearse Dunn Remix & Calvin Buckley Remix


[House:] Blu Cantrell – Breathe (ft. Sean Paul) [Pearse Dunn Remix]

[House:] Blu Cantrell – Breathe (ft. Sean Paul) [Calvin Buckley Remix]


Apparently it’s hot right now to remix Blu Cantrell’s “Breathe.” The 2003 single featured Sean Paul and enjoyed substantial airplay on hip-hop and R&B radio stations. Just in time for the wrapping of summer 2017 come two great house remixes of the original song.

Pearse Dunn’s remix channels slightly more aggressive dance-ready number, with a  funky BPM and grimey basslines coupled with synths ready to heat up the clubs, this remix definitely has energy. Calvin Buckley’s take is slightly more chill, like a mid-to-late night cut rounding out the night. Think turning up the crowd then gradually letting them mellow back out. Steadily building, echoing synths and snares culminate to a short break before the rhythm and melodies are broken down then built back up.

Both remixes are certainly worth checking out.
