Best Coast

The Giants have won the World Series and Hurricane Sandy is makin' it rain in the East. Sounds like the time to be on the West Coast. But if like me, you are not, here are some songs to make you feel better about it.

Berlin Sunrise (Lee Jones Remix) - Fink
Soulful vocals over an acid house baseline. Subtle but tasty.

Feel good deep house. If you like this check out some of his other tracks.

Feel good electro house, pretty unique sound.

Classic big room electro house. Wolfgang Gartner turned me on to this one.

Reader request by a reader with very good taste!

Hate is the Killer

After meandering through the latest Porter Robinson sets, I have stumbled upon some swanky new tunes. Unfortunately, I don't have any new tracks by the man himself so these will have to suffice for the meantime. Enjoy. 

A classic big-house chune with an interesting breakdown. 

Bass heavy. Oooooof. 

No Arty, No Party. 

- Shake 


The Maor man adds some character to an otherwise uninteresting track.

Some Friday Tunes

I have some groovy new tracks for all the humans that just happen to be on the deeper side of the spectrum. Cheers. 

Giulia (Arapaima X-Mix) - Liar
Super catchy. Can't get this one out of my head.

The deep house maestra herself returns. 

A wonderful tech house remix of SHM's newest track. A must download.

Mat Zo & shit

As you may or may not know, I have a love for all things Mat Zo. He recently released a couple of mixes, an India-inspired mix for Trance Around the World 450 and the last hour of the Anjunabeats Worldwide 300 mix. I have compiled some of my favorite tracks, both old and new, from both. They are phenomenal. Cheers. 

An older remix, but beautiful and melodic nonetheless. 

A classic house tune. 


Got that deep house feel. 

A staple in Mat Zo sets. 

A wonderful, slightly spastic track. 

Gotta have some electro-house in the mix. 

And I leave you with the master himself.

Different Phases

The weekend is here! And these songs are designed to guide you through the many phases of your friday evening.

The Pregame:

Little Man (Clancy's Deep Haze Remix) - Little Dragon
This track should warm things up with the irresistible vocals of Little Dragon given the deep house treatment by Clancy.

The Dance Floor:

Ran Tam Tam (Main Mix) - Alex Gueasto & Stefano Pain
You are jumpin and jivin on the dance floor as this big room house banger lets you show off some of your wilder moves. Things are getting weird and you don't know where your friends are. Maybe indulge the random dude who has been awkwardly dancing next to you for the last hour with a kiss, or maybe you try to befriend the bouncer who bears an odd resemblance to you favorite childhood cartoon character. Who's to say?

The Late Night:

All That Matters - Kolsch
Either way, you are now ready for my favorite track of the bunch. You have sobered up and are entering the late night phase. If you download only one song from the post is the one. I have had it on repeat for days since hearing it in a live set by our buddy Ill Emitter.

Happy Friday,

Rules Of Dada

Dada Life's new album came out this week. A lot of the songs have really awful vocals and a lot of them sound pretty similar. But some of them are pretty awesome. See for yourself. Here are all the songs that haven't been released as singles already.

This one's my favorite.

Moar Trance

What's a weekend without some new trance songs to get down and dirty with? These three remixes were tackled by three of the best trance teams in the game. Enjoy.

Trance Fix

Trance is my healthiest binge.

This one is probably my favorite of the bunch.

Sunny Lax has been killing it for me lately. He's got a couple new tracks coming out soon, but this one should hold you until we can get our hands on those.

I'm a sucker for trancey female vocals. And Johan Malmgren knows how to throw down a good remix.

That Good Good

Here are some really great songs that I think you will enjoy as you move through the week. Whether you are tappng your foot in the library, or shredding up the dance floor, these tracks oughta do the trick.

Fake Love - Blende
I posted a remix of this a while back, but have realized that the original is far superior so check it out.

Over - Fantastic Mr. Fox
Like the name, and the song.

Latch (feat. Sam Smith) - Disclosure
This song has been all over the internet as a preview. However it is finally out and, in case you somehow missed it, do not miss this excellent track by Disclosure

773 Love (Cashmere Cat Remix) - Jeremih
Showin a lot of love to soulful house music lately and what could be more soulful than R&B singer Jeremih?

Do the Dirty

After the longest of long weeks, Friday is here. It's time to do the dirty, get after it, joda onwards, etc. Here are some tracks to help. Cheers. 

My favorite Argentine duo at it again. The breakdown at 2:45 is especially swanky. 

Showing some more Argie love with up-and-comer Chris Schweizer

Switching Gears: 

I love anything with lyrics in Portuguese. And, this just happens to be a nifty little tech house track. 

More groovy tech house. 

I know what you're thinking. Really? Give it a shot. It's worth your while. 

- Shake 

Can't get this one out of my head.

Stuck In The Box

It's not very often that I get to post A&B songs, as their label goes super fucking hard and takes everything down almost instantly. But this song is from 2004, so I've got my hopes up that it'll last. It was A&B's "Stuck In The Box" selection from last week's TATW. It's still awesome.

Did You Know?

Free Mat Zo Track.

I Never Knew - Mat Zo



Anton Zaslavski of Germany, better known as Zedd, is an extremely talented electro-house producer. Today he released his debut album entitled "Clarity". It features 10 tracks and each one of them bring a little something different to the table. Listeners will recognize two previously released tracks, "Shave It Up" and "Spectrum", however, several of the remaining new release overpower those oldies by a considerable margin. Here are three of my favorites after an initial listen.

Solid and intriguing progressive house.

I am a sucker for anything that hints at french electro.

Mainstream vocal progressive track with some interesting twists and turns which give it a unique harmonic edge.

Heavier vocal track, might be a little too heavy but if you can play it, you are sure to smash the dancefloor with this one. On a side note I swear he samples 50 cent at 2:26. Does anyone else here that?

Overall you can expect a few tracks that fall flat in the style of "Spectrum". However, in between those duds, you will find some real gems that are- pleasing to both the ears and the dance floor.


Monday, October 1, 2012


Well here we are. It's Monday. Another week has officially begun and what better way to start it off than with some swanky new tunes. The new Tommy Trash and Sebastian Ingrosso collab, Reload, is exactly what you would expect from the two progressive house gurus. SHM likes it, I like it. Worth the download. 

The next track is a Mark Knight remix of the TEED track Your Love. It is a classic. I can't get enough of it. 

It wouldn't be a week without some of that Dirtybird. Slaptop recently posted the Dusky remix of Justin Martin's Don't Go from the recently released remix compilation of Ghettos & Gardens. You should definitely give it a listen. I have included two of my other favorites. Ooooof.
