Partition (Dave Aude Remix)


Partition (Dave Aude Remix)

Dave Aude’s remix to Beyonce’s “Partition” blew up charts at Hypem.com or Hype Machine, a website which tracks popular songs. The remix climbed to the No. 2 spot on the Remixes Only Chart shortly after its debut. This edit of the single has all the elements you’d expect in a dance song today, interesting parts but not fully fleshed out. Still, it will get people to the dancefloor.

Sleeping Dogs OST gems — “Professional Loving – Emika” on Ninja Tune Radio


Shoutout to the Sleeping Dogs video game soundtrack which showed me some of what Ninja Tune (the record label) has been up to with its own dedicated radio station within the game.

The equivalent of an Asian Grand Theft Auto IV (with a little to be desired in the driving department) Sleeping Dogs was originally released in late 2012, but was given away in January 2014 on Xbox Live’s servers for Gold Members as part of their “Free Games” promotions.

The game is pretty fun, playing as undercover Hong Kong PD cop, Wei Shen, but what surprised me even more was the soundtrack for the game (which only plays while driving usually), for a game released in late 2012 Square Enix chose several songs that were WAAAY before their time (I wish I’d played this game sooner, I wanted to too when it first came out!)

The Electronic radio station “Ninja Tune Radio” features artists such as Emika, Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Bonobo, Plaid, Flying Lotus, Two Fingers and Stateless. I am still analyzing the Hong Kong Hip-Hop/Electronic station (HKLUB) which features many local Hong Kong rap groups and DJs.

Either way big ups to Square Enix for their soundtrack choice in the game, which really surprised me to be honest. Their audio department gets a cookie, most def.

[THROWBACK] Amazon Rain – B-Complex (DRUM ‘N BASS)


http://youtu.be/lxkZjs8aVuo Throwback to a great Drum ‘N Bass track I discovered about a year ago to beat this icy weather. “Amazon Rain” is a beautiful track that builds a melodic overtone throughout the song getting stronger and climaxing midway through. If you don’t have time for the lengthy though ear-pleasing building that lasts around 4 minutes skip to about the 4:30 mark. The vibe of the song will get you moving, or make you feel like you should be moving (great for racing…games, don’t race to this track, especially not in this weather!) If you’d like to hear another jam from B-Complex that is just as atmospheric in its melody and complex in its beat (and even features female vocals!) check out “Broken Windows (feat. ill-esha)” – http://youtu.be/NGQYq0E3Xzs

Adventure Club LIVE! Review 3.5/5


The Adventure Club show held on December 28, 2013 was quite a rousing concert. It was almost hard to believe though that this was the same duo that got me into dubstep a year ago. Performing at Opera, the Illuminate event brought high energy and exquisite show techniques buried in the bro environment. The atmospheric vibe marred by a crowded room. The performance was also marred by several repeats of too well-known songs in playlist consisting of little variety.

Adventure Club came with all the same hype, lights and high energy  one would expect from one of the most recognized groups in the EDM/Dubstep genre.  Sadly, some of the opening acts actually put on a better show than Adventure Club. MK ULTRA and SnellVillain opened with some of the more eclectic sounds of the genre. The opening acts pumped up the crowd and going well with the audience’s glow sticks and light generating mittens consisting of all the colors of the rainbow.

On my YouTube page I captured a few of the moments when  Adventure Club strayed from some of their most popular songs such as “Collect Call” & “Crave You,” which they played each at least 2 or 3 times. Unfortunately, I didn’t even hear some of their newer tracks or if I did they played them so seldomky, I hardly noticed. It would have been nice to hear some of the songs off of their Superheroes Vol. 3 mix, but they tended to play it a little too safe. MK ULTRA was the surprise highlight of the night for me, spinning several new songs and remixes, or if they were old, complimented the rave environment and hyped the crowd up much more than AC.

Some stylish music for rap/choreo. Parov Stelar’s “Booty Swing”


Parov Stelar – Booty Swing [Classical EDM Music]

I like me some Parov Stelar. He produces some great stuff with a jazz, classical vibe mixed with electronic influence. Many of his songs feature saxophones used in ways even my dad might appreciate (and he hates my music, or at least he used to).

Funny my grandfather was a saxophonist…..
This song & Chambermaid Swing (from the alcohol commercial) are two personal favorites. You can find Youtube Videos for each and Youtube Remix Music Videos (where people synced old-timey dance video’s with Stelar’s neo-classical elecrtro-dance songs).

Again not local ATL sorry, but good music nonetheless. Local acts coming soon!!
