“#SELFIE (Tim Gunter Remix)” by The Chainsmokers

“#Selfie” may have blown up and given The Chainsmokers international recognition, but there are definitely some better versions of the song out there. Tim Gunter’s trap version is my personal favorite. For the blogosphere veterans out there, you may remember Tim Gunter made the beats when he was part of  hip-hop duo Eddy B & Tim Gunter. Tim has more recently begun to branch out on his own and make some really solid EDM tracks, including this one.

ThrowBack Thursday: “Drop It Like It’s Hot” by Snoop Dogg & Pharrell

With all this nice weather comes nice music. Bring back this track from 2004 and this awesome remix by Kartell. Go ahead and master that crip walk and vibe to “Drop It Like It’s Hot”. The song features probably the best Pharrell verse ever and I wish he would bring back a little of this street-style. This song was Pharrell’s biggest hit up until last year with “Get Lucky”. Produced by The Neptunes too which will be helping Pusha T out with his new album King Push. The video also won best music video in Australia in 2006. Enjoy the Thursday guys. TBT

“They Want It” by Styles&Complete

In honor 4/20 coming this weekend, Styles&Complete released a free EP entitled “Legalize It.” The project consists of three very trippy, bass-heavy tracks that will make great additions to whatever playlist you plan to bump on Sunday. Here’s what the EDM duo had to say about it:

“We are full supporters of the legalization marijuana. W/ this EP we wanted to give an anthem to all the weed enthusiast out there. We experimented with a lot of different kinds of bud and genres during the making of this and really just let loose unconcerned with the hype of today’s industry. #smokeweed

To be honest, “They Want It” is the only track I really liked, but feel free to check out and download the rest after the jump.

Event: Coachella 2014 [2nd Weekend]

photo_517_0

Tomorrow kicks off the last weekend of Coachella 2014. After seeing tons of videos and pictures from the shows last week, it’s very clear that Coachella is no joke. From Paul McCartney to Jay Z, almost everyone who is anyone in the music world heads to Coachella to party at some point. Even artists who don’t perform just head there to hangout. Last week we saw insane performances from Calvin Harris and Skrillex and legendary sets from Nas and of course OutKast. Rumor has it that Calvin Harris had the second biggest crowd in Coachella history. Drake even made an appearance and noted that this was his first time at Coachella. Next year? Anyways, if you didn’t get to go last week and you’re in the area I would highly recommend it. Just do us a favor and don’t dress like an idiot. For those of you who’s pockets aren’t that deep, the live-stream is always a good option. Below are some more links of stuff that you might find interesting about the festival and a Coachella playlist here.

Event: Budweiser Made In America Festival will be in Philidelphia & LA for 2014

bmia

The Busweiser Made In America Music Festival will be held on two different coasts this year on Memorial Day Weekend (August 30th-31st). Jay Z, along with Budweiser, the mayors of Phili and LA, LiveNation, and the charity United Way will be hosting the event that has grown in popularity over the past few years. After the jump you can see the video preview but the event will have 6 stages in each city and 60 performers. Announcements on the line-ups and such have not been released just yet but we will keep you updated. Last year we saw Jay Z vibing to Deadmau5′ set so who knows what we’ll get this year. Made In America will be the first music festival to be featured simultaneously on both coasts. Hopefully the line-ups are equally as dope and perhaps they will just switch off between Saturday & Sunday. The festival benefits the charity United Way and this year with twice as much music it will hopefully generate twice as much revenue for the cause.
