electro emo punk?ook

Sorry ‘bout the lack of updates, djing and exams have kicked my ass lately.

Sonny Moore, ex From First To Last lead singer / emo hearthrob, has been hard at work producing since he quit his band.

Here’s my favorite track off his Gypsyhook EP, a great rework by DMNDAYS

Sonny - Gypsyhook (DMNDAYS remix)

Here’s a high quality pre-ep track that can be found on his myspace.

Sonny - Scatting (320)

BONUS: I just can’t get over how Crookers killed it on sunday. Here’s a oldie but a goodie

Don Rimini - Let Me Back Up (Crookers Remix)

a milli a milli a milli

Ever since I heard Lil’ Wayne (the greatest rapper alive’s) hit single A Milli, I knew I had to find a way to sneak it into my sets. Unfortunately, I’ve never been too enamored with any of the remixes and have always prefered the original. Luckily, Crookers taught us all a way to sneak it in!

Here’s the recipe:

Play original A Milli (in 320) from the beginning.

Hit your serato cue (set to the first beat).

Throw a four beat loop up around ~8-10 seconds in (a milli a milli a milli)

Bring in the Crookers remix of Radioclit - Secousse

Garnish with airhorns.

the crookers

Pretty sure I’m going to see some people I know, people who I wish I knew and lots of people that I never want to meet this sunday in Vancouver for Italy’s fidget superstars Crookers.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years (if that’s the case, I’m jealous. You missed out on that whole “day n night” bullshit) here’s a few tracks to get you bumping. Heads up - the Spears remix absolutely destroys the dancefloor.

Crookers - Big Money Coming [mediafire]

Britney Spears - If U Seek Amy (Crookers Remix) [mediafire]

Diplo - Wassup Wassup (feat Rye Rye, Crookers happy remix) [mediafire]

Bonus - I usually hate mashups, but this is a decent way to mix some hip hop and electro:

Crookers - What Up Y’all (607 Freestyle edit) [mediafire]

uffie

My favorite bitch from Miama living in Paris would have to be Uffie. Along with her dj/producer boyfriend, Feadz she makes incredibly fun yet sincere pop music. We all remember her from her cameo in The Party, off Justice’s Cross. Here’s an LA Riots remake that keeps Uffie’s verse intact while hyping up the rest of the sound.

Justice - The Party (feat Uffie) (LA Riots Remix) [mediafire]

Next up we’ve got F1rst Love, an electro ballad if I ever did hear one.

Uffie - F1rst Love [mediafire]

Bonus: Blake Miller (otherwise known as Steve Aoki’s better half) has been putting out some great yet underappreciated productions for too long.

Justice - D.A.N.C.E (Blake Miller Is Ruthless Vs Sickboy edit) [mediafire]

Digitalism - Pogo (Blake Miller Is Ruthless edit) [mediafire]

barletta

Barletta has been blowing up the blog scene with banging remixs and great productions. I’m especially excited for his upcoming collabs with Kid Cranberry. Here’s a few of his latest for the mean time. I played what is love remix out and it got the floor dancing and singing along. Pay special attention to his re-edit of Leave This World Behind - a perfect mix of electro house and blog electro.

Haddaway - What Is Love (Barletta Remix) [mediafire]

The Bloody Beetroots - Warp (Barletta Edit) [mediafire]

Laidback Luke, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell & Steve Angello - Leave the World Behind (Barletta Edit) [mediafire]

dem slackers

This is my last post before I bus up to school, lock myself in the library and finish this essay. In honor of my ongoing procrastination, here’s a few tracks by Dem Slackers, my favorite dutch producers.

Dem Slackers - God Is A Slacker (Lee Mortimer Remix) [mediafire]

Boemklatsch - Bonafied (Dem Slackers Floor Dance Remix) [mediafire]

Kid Sister - Family Reunion (Dem Slackers Shitloads Blow Zero Mix) [mediafire]

and just so you know, Dem Slackers just released THE JOKER EP on beatport. Check it out.

D.I.M

We were lucky enough to host Germany’s D.I.M last month in Victoria. He really showed us all what you can do with a macbook and traktor.

The Presets - My People (D.I.M remix) [mediafire]

D.I.M - Is You (Brodinski remix) [mediafire]

they are the bloody beetroots

So I’m hitting the mainland friday to see Italy’s hypest export since Marinetti, the Bloody Beetroots. These guys are huge; everybody from your older brother to your camp counsellor rocks out to them. Here’s a few of their tracks that I continue to drop at my residency.

Cazals - Somebody, Somewhere (The Bloody Beetroots Remix) [mediafire]

The Bloody Beetroots - We Are From Venice (La Serenissima) [mediafire]

The Bloody Beetroots - Detroit (Ghetto Edit) [mediafire]

upper klaas

Looking for something to placate the v-neck wearing dance-a-holics while keeping the Benassi loving masses interested? Look no further than electro-house superstar Klaas.

These are oldies but goodies.

skream ing

Not sure if it’s a regional thing, but Skream's remix of In For The Kill has absolutely blown up. Been getting tons of requests for it. Since dropping a track as minimal and sparse as the Skream mix at peak time is a recipe for clearing the floor, we’ve got the Foamo re-edit to pick up the slack.
