This past weekend, Armin van Buuren made a very important announcement to the crowd of Tomorrowland and to anyone who was watching the live stream. Prior to his set, his wife had just given birth to his son. And with the news, he felt that it would be appropriate to dedicate the following set to his son. Congrats Armin, and to baby van Buuren, you’re a lucky guy.
Avicii dropped his video for “Wake Me Up” today. This massively popular single off his upcoming album True coming out September 17th wasn’t such a big hit at Ultra but has grown on a lot of people and is played everywhere now. Even though this is a very different sounding Avicii, this is him at his best… along with Aloe Blacc of course; who adds all the great vocals. This video is all about finding where you belong and not just waiting around for things to change for you. Video features footage from Ultra 2013 and possibly a part inspired by the TV show The Walking Dead.
Tiesto takes on Ellie Goulding’s “Burn,” and we learn or are reminded of a few things. Number 1: Tiesto is undoubtedly one of the best producers out right now. Number 2: Ellie Goulding is an amazing vocalist (And yes, she is also dabbling in a little bit of DJing herself). Number 3: Ellie Goulding is hot. So, with all of those things combined, we get a playful and light remix of “Burn.” I don’t think this track can be considered his best remix, but it’s definitely up there.
Protohype and Carnage goes hard on this remix that just came out yesterday. Personally, the vocals can get a little annoying, but the production really just takes your mind off of it. Towards the end, the track even gets somewhat hysterical. The drop is insanely grimy…Yum.
Release Date: TBA
JXCXL was able to post the Baauer remix to “You & Me,” but it seems that the Flume remix may have been overlooked. Yes, this remix came out on SoundCloud about a month ago, but I’m too obsessed with this not to share. The original deep house track by Disclosure is calm and chill. Flume, without adding too much crazyness to the track, takes this to a whole new level. Seriously kills the track with the progression from the orchestra. Seriously impressive.
Before I go into this amazing mix, I’ll talk about hardstyle in conjunction to PTB. Basically, Hardstyle is still a fairly underground genre in the U.S. In Europe, judging by the current festival scene such as Defqon.1, the popularity is increasing rapidly. Personally, I love this genre, but never really wanted to share it with you guys cause it wasn’t “mainstream” enough.
Well, today, we’re breaking that barrier with one of the leading artists of harstyle, Headhunterz. I will also be reorganizing the genres because I’m kind of over the fact that every EDM track is pretty much categorized under the genre “electronic.” My bad guys, just happens simply with the evolution of the site. Seriously, vote for this if you like it and if you don’t, give it a downvote. I want to see how you all like this genre. Thanks for being awesome people!
Dillon Francis, one of the leaders in moombhaton, has been on a serious Instagram binge, which has left many fans laughing. Seriously, these videos are hysterical. This post really has nothing to do with music, but more has to do with Dillon Francis’ amazingly hysterical personality. I’ve watched all of his videos, and seriously, I have no regrets on how I’ve spent those 5 or so minutes. Amazing content.
