“One And Only (R3hab Remix)” by Cherry Cherry Boom Boom

On the heels of previewing remixes of Taryn Manning’s “Send Me Your Love” and Meital and Sean Kingston’s “On Ya,” R3hab is tearing his chainsaw through another pop song – taking on Cherry Cherry Boom Boom’s “One And Only.” This time around, R3hab injects big room synth elements alongside intricate chord and drum play to give the original a heavy dose of high-energy dancefloor appeal.

Album Release: “> Album Title Goes Here <” by Deadmau5

The musical genius Deadmau5 has finally released his sixth studio album and it does not disappoint. Joel keeps taking his work to the next level, even when it seems like he has reached the limit for his music potential. Deadmau5 stacks up the synths and pitch-shifting and defiant beats for his latest production. From songs like “Math” which sounds like an outer-space funk odyssey that is running at warp speed, to “Professional Grievers” which is a teenage riot compressed into 5 minutes with help from My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way. This album also features Imogen Heap and Cyprus Hill, successfully destroying any boundaries between genres that were previously thought to exist. The mouse does not disappoint, as usual.

Album: “Babel” by Mumford & Sons

Mumford & Sons are out with their newest album, “Babel.” Today was the album’s release date, and they’ve already caused a massive stir with news publications and blogs. Normally, if you couldn’t tell from what I post, I don’t listen to indie. If I do, it’s usually a dubstep/electronic remix. Sometimes, here and there, there are bands that slip through the cracks and end up in my iTunes library. That exception is Mumford & Sons.

There’s something about their style of music that get’s you going. Yes, they all play instruments, so to the average basshead, this is hard to believe. Their music is always intricately designed with a beginning and end. They start slow, and soon enough, the song picks up its pace and makes you want to go wild. That’s the music these guys make.

So, for today, we’ve got “Babel.” A mixture of fast paced tracks and the stereotypical chill indie sound. This album is amazing, nonetheless. I’ve embedded the entire album below, and I’ve also put up the music video for “I Will Wait,” one of my favorite tracks from the album.

EP: “Taylor-Made” by Yoni

Yoni has been making mashups for a while now. And in the past year, he’s released a few of his, what I like to call, “Taylor-inspired” songs. Most of them have Taylor Swift samples in them, but they aren’t totally dominated by her samples. So, this EP has a little bit of everything: Taylor Swift, EDM, hard hitting drops. Everything a party track can ask for is in this EP…too bad it’s only 4 songs. Anyways, you’ll enjoy this package.

“Bombs Over Capitals (Clark Kent Remix)” by AN21 and Max Vangeli

Shayne posted a Clark Kent remix earlier this month, and here’s another! AN21 and Max Vangeli, under Size Records, has produced an amazing track. But, that’s not what I have for you today. The original is a progressive house track, but Clark Kent pretty much took that apart and brought the wobbles.

“Pumped Up Paradise” by Ben Kennedy

I’ve been listening to a lot of acoustic covers lately, and I just discovered Ben Kennedy.  He’s from Canada and he’s really really good at playing the guitar, and that’s about all I know.  He has a lot of covers out, including the one above, which is a sweet acoustic mashup of “Paradise” and “Pumped Up Kicks.”  Just wait till about 2:11, then damn.  His Maroon 5 cover of “Sunday Mornings” that I’ve included at the bottom is also incredibly beautiful, it’s actually how I discovered him.  If you like what you hear, definitely check him out on Soundcloud, I couldn’t find a Facebook page for him.  Enjoy!
