Let's Get Raunchy

Weird is becoming the weekend standard. Let's get raunchy.


The Return of the Joda

It's Friday and the joda has returned to FYH in all its glory. The focus is on that good, ole-fashioned house music. Turn up the volume, strap on your dancing shoes, and have a swanky weekend. Cheers. 

Mat Zo has been using this track a lot recently. Sufficed to say, you can't sit still to this one. 

Classic big room house. 

Once again, no Arty, no Party. 

The Italian duo destroys another remix. 

Flamenco with house. I think yes.

Trance Tuesday

It's been a while since I've posted on the blog and it's getting to be that time when we're all bogged down with work and finals. Thankfully some great music has been coming out to hold our hand while we crawl towards that finish line.

This one is not trance at all. It's some of that deep shit and it's awesome. I was put onto it by my good friend Ill Emitter. Check it out.

ABGT 001

As you all know, Above & Beyond chose to end their long-standing radio show Trance Around the World last week with a celebration of global proportions in India. It also marked the beginning of their new show, Above & Beyond Group Therapy. If the sets from TATW 450/ABGT 001 are any indication, then this new show will be just as good, if not better, than the original. I have a couple of my favorite tracks from each set to share with you. Cheers.

A beautiful set with tons of unreleased tracks and classics. Definitely worth a listen.

You can't lie to house muzik...

As the title may suggest, I'm harkening back to my roots for this one and bringing you some dirty, dirty house music for the end of the week blues. Enjoy. 

Catchy synth-work and a big, bad drop make this track durty. 

This has some of that beachy, techy vibe I have been digging. Oh yeah, and there is a trumpet. 

A swanky upbeat progressive bootleg that I have been digging. 

Tech house all the way home. It's long and strange. But a classic. Keep this one in the back pocket for those times when things get weird.  

Pryda-esque. Probably because it comes off his label. Wonderful track. 

I've always been a Mark Knight fan. And I like Marco V. So, I endorse this track. Good vocals too.

A wonderful mash-up from Kaskade using Pryda's Allein. No download yet, but you can listen to it here.

Group Therapy Radio

Yesterday Above & Beyond confirmed that the end of Trance Around The World does not mark the end of their radio dynasty, but instead the beginning of a new era of it. Under the new title "Group Therapy Radio," Above & Beyond will continue to fill our hearts and souls with their Anjuna-magic every week. Their TATW sendoff this Saturday will also mark the first episode of their new show. For more details visit:

Here's a little something to hold you over until then:

For Meg

Winter is coming! Sadly for Game of Thrones fans, new episodes are not. I can, however, offer you these tunes as a consolation to keep you warm on those cold winter nights.

Get Some - Fion & Brame
Some catchy deep/future house to get warmed up.

Dope song, surprisingly hard drop in a good way.

Lets take it up a few notches with this huge remix by The FatRat. I prefer this sound to most of his previous stuff and hope to hear more like this. If you like this, check out the version by Ko Ko. It's not electronic but damn is it catchy.

"Chill Pump-up" from two house hold names

Trance Around The World 450 will be the last ever Trance Around The World. Above & Beyond promised a special surprise during the retrospective 449th episode of their weekly radio show, but no one expected a surprise like this. The show took its listeners back through an emotional mix of classics, old and new, closing with the foreshadowing analogue remix of "Breaking Ties." 

Along with their announcement, they uploaded the above picture to their Facebook page. Some read it as a suggestion of a new OceanLab project, but only time will tell. How much time? Above & Beyond will be making another announcement of some kind when this clock runs out:

Will this be the end of our weekly therapy sessions? I don't think so. Above & Beyond are menders of hearts, not breakers of them. I imagine that we'll still be getting our weekly dose of uplifting trance, but through a show with a more appropriate label.

Here are a few of the classics shared in TATW 449. I've included the entire thing as well and I highly recommend taking the time to listen to it.

Hope Springs Eternal

With the hope that this weekend is exactly what all the humans out there need, I have some interesting new tracks lined up. From the deepest depths of house to melodic trance and that progressive everyone seems to enjoy oh so much, here is to hoping that this post has something for ya. Cheers. 

Found this little gem in Dusky's Essential Mix. 

Need I say more?

A groovy, groovy track.  

Some melodic progressive house. 

The British duo themselves kill it with this one.  

A little something from Axwell's mush fest at Electric Zoo. 

Armin "the godfather" van Buuren endorses it. I'm into it.
