Son Lux – Flickers (Zeds Dead Remix)

First off, I’d like to apologize for my lack of posts these past few months. However, with finals in the near future, and hours of restless nights, this remix of Son Lux’s “Flickers” is the perfect remedy to lift you up. Zeds Dead never fails to energize listeners with their hard-hitting, eerie sounds, accompanied by appropriate vocals, all of which attack the finest of your senses head on. With this remix coming out mere weeks ago, and listening to it multiple times a day, one would imagine that it has fallen behind on my recently played songs. False. Zeds Dead has brought to us a calm, yet liberating song that still manages to keep their unique style intact, and continues to bring the energy necessary to blow your mind continuously. Forever. I can do nothing but promise that this song alone will get us all through our symptoms of spring fever, and carry us into an unforgettable summer full of new, emotionally powerful music that is waiting for us. Prepare yourself and enjoy! – AD

Outkast – Coachella 2014 Full Set

I’m sorry, but did somebody say “Outkast”?  Last night, one of the most popular rap groups of all time rejoined forces on the main stage of Coachella.  Welcome to festival season, where beautiful things like this happen to the music world.  View the video below to see the full set – SK.

Artist – Dead Horse Beats

Love finding gems by accident.  I was just looking up instrumentals on hypem.com to listen to as a distraction from (not) writing my essay.  Stumbled upon Dead Horse Beats and found a chill electoswing man that comes with a unique feel.  Can’t put my finger on it, but I’m impressed and pleased with this relaxing turn of events for my ears.  Featured is his funky and totally unexpected remix of 50′s “In Da Club”, and following is his artist page on Soundcloud.  Hope you feel the same, but if not then happy searching! – SK.

 

Top Ultra Sets – UMF 2014

As I posted previously, “Jack U” aka Skrillex and Diplo tag-teamed UMF and stole the show.  However, let’s not forget the plethora of amazing DJ’s that played during the festival as well.  Below are some of the top performers at this year’s mega-party in Miami, so enjoy these sets when you have a spare hour to kick it! – SK.

“Jack U” (Diplo and Skrillex) – Ultra 2014 Set

Hello world, been busy traveling in Kenya for the past month or so.  Thought it would’ve been hard to catch up with all the music I’ve missed, but conveniently I just came back at the best time.  UMF 2014 was a success and went wild with sets from some of the biggest players in the EDM scene.  The best place to start for me was this combo of Diplo and Skrillex, and from what I’ve heard on the set they killed it like no other.  Two massive DJ’s combined for this jaw-dropper so give it a look and see where 2014 will be taking us – SK.

Still sumbling upon some cool jams while in Kenya.  Check out this latest assortment! – SK.

2/4/14

Hey everyone, still alive some 7,000 miles away.  Found a few minutes out of the busy day to scavenge the web for some sounds and this is what I found.  What about you guys? – SK.

Wild Wednesday

It’s wild because I’m in the jungle of Africa.  Well, not quite but it’s closer than usual: I am currently in Kenya to a semester abroad! I haven’t had much time to catch up on the latest releases within the electronic dance music scene because I have been immersing myself in a completely different culture.  However, I have taken two or three hours out of this past week to look, and this is what I have found! (Many familiar names, get excited).  Until next time, swing it ’round and ’round!  Miss ya’ll – SK.
