First, big Happy Birthday to our the creator of PTB, Jay K-S! Kid finally turns 21 today. Without him none of this would have been possible. Now we can finally hit up the clubs together pending he doesn’t die tonight. Now, because last week someone was crying about there not being enough EDM, these were some of the best ones I could find that are recent and that I haven’t posted already. For some reason my lil’ bro has been playing this Deadmau5 “Tiny Dancer” remix a lot lately and I can’t get it out of my head. It’s good. The Major Lazer track is solid and the K Theory remix I thought was spot on. Check out the other tunes, they’re all good. Have a good weekend guys and again Happy Birthday to the genius asian that made this happen. Here’s to the future – Pump The Beat.

ThrowBack Thursday: Romanthony

The genius behind “One More Time” and “Too Long” by Daft Punk did much more than help out the robots. The American disc-jockey, Romanthony, had many hits during his hit career in the 90’s and early 2000’s and sadly passed away in May of last year right before RAM was released. I do believe that he is responsible for some of the biggest influence in electronic dance music not only for his contribution to Daft Punk but also to the evolution of DJing alone. His voice is quite surprising and I think makes every song better. I’ve put some of my favorites below.

Two of the biggest tracks to rage to just got the edit together. “Tsunami” and “Turn Down For What” might be some of the best heart-pumping songs flowing through DJ sets right now and now you can play them together. Dzeko & Torres worked these two together and did an awesome job. Also offered us a free download so enjoy. Check out their SoundCloud here.

“Faith (The Remixes)” by Blasterjaxx

The current favorite for big-room house tracks has gone under the remix treatment. Powerhouse Music has released the small but worthwhile remix pack. The first track, remixed by Lady Bee, goes for the more trap-y approach. Big horn sounds and a ton of glitchy vocals. As we move onto the second track, here’s where the big-room effect gets amplified a little more.

Release Date: February 3, 2014

News: Hangout Music Festival Line-Up Announced [May 16th-18th]

I told ya. A little more of a quieter vibe, here is the line-up for the Hangout Music Festival on the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama. Not a bad line-up at all and if I had the funds I’d be down there. Noticing a pattern of repeating artists like Outkast, Childish Gambino, and Chance the Rapper. Sell outs? Getting a little boring but let the fans be the judges. All these releases certainly prove that music festivals are still a growing market.
