Electronic Tuesdays *Shapes of Light, Jamie XX, Dan Castro

April 26th, 2011 by | Dance, Dubstep, Electronic Tuesday |

Finals are coming up, the college world is a mess, and we’re all trying to make it in this rat race. So! Without further ado (read: before I go to the library!)…

Last night, I went to a Wolfgang Gartner concert, an American producer and DJ who was actually nominated for a Grammy! I was pleasantly surprised at his opening acts. Of course, Hot Pink Delorean has been an up and coming name (a dance music trio from Boston), but there were other DJs who threw down. In honor of them and the producers trying to make it in this world, I present the following…

Shapes of Light is an up and coming duo made up of AJB and NRL. They’re from Boston, and recently came in 2nd place in a remix competition held by Together Boston (legit – the remix was “My Favourite”). They’ve got a lot of stuff coming up, and having heard them in huge sub-woofers, I highly recommend you embrace ’em.
Hot Pink Delorean – My Favourite (Shapes of Light Remix)
Adele – Rolling in the Deep (Shapes of Light Remix)

As for some other producers making names for themselves, Jamie XX is all over the internet. He’s got more a chill, relaxed sound, but his remixes are very clean and always interesting to listen to. Also, Dan Castro has made it onto the Beatport Top 10 (Beatport is the HOME to all electronica EDM music).

Jamie XX:
FaltyDL – Hip Love (Jamie xx Remix)
Adele – Rolling In The Deep (Jamie xx Shuffle) (Childish Gambino rapped on this)

Dan Castro:

And there’s your Electronic Tuesday! Lots of love, and jam out,

Electronica Tuesdays Explains Dubstep

April 19th, 2011 by | Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Electronic Tuesday |

Hi guys!

A lot of people don’t really “get” dubstep. It’s mostly written off as a genre of electronic music..but that’s really not at all what I consider it to be. Dubstep is essentially drum and bass. Its tempo is nearly always in the range of 138-142bpm, and it also nearly always has an extended bass note, often called a wobble. There’s also that thing that people call a “drop”…what is that, you ask? Well, it involves a pause (the percussion stops), and then the track resumes with intensity and often with a completely hardcore sub-bass that adds to the original. It really did start in the UK. It’s raw, visceral, and intense. Not for the lighthearted.

Noisia is a really underrated dubstep artist…I myself didn’t really get into his music only because it seemed so far out. The original stuff was very space-y house music. That being said, now that I’ve really put some time into listening to Noisia, pretty good stuff indeed.

And a bonus (or two)!

Electronic Tuesdays Gets Nasty

(Fedde le Grand live at Ultra Music Festival 2011, a major electronic concert held in Miami, FL)

So, I know you missed me..and for that, I’ll give you some fancy schmancy dubstep and house music to get this week to a peak (you see what I did there? I rhymed).

Steve Angello is always fun to listen to. He’s one of the members of Swedish House Mafia (composed of Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell). He’s very much dance/house oriented.

Tim Mason – The Moment (Steve Angello Remix):

Swedish House Mafia – Save the World Tonight:

The Bloody Beetroots are most well known for Warp 1.9 featuring Steve Aoki and Dimmakmunication but they’ve just recently released a few new songs.

Britney Spears – Till the World Ends (The Bloody Beetroots Remix):

The Bloody Beetroots – I Love (easily one of the most underrated songs):
I Love

The Killers – Spacemen (The Bloody Beetroots and Steve Aoki Remix):

Finally in the house section is some nice, pure electronic. Really chill and clean to listen to, and always puts a smile on my face.

Mosaik – Surismo:

Breakbot – Shades of Black (most well known for “Baby I’m Yours”):

Electronic Tuesday with Steve Angello, Afrojack, JUSTICE and much more

April 5th, 2011 by | Dance, Dubstep, Electro, Electronic Tuesday, House, Remix, Trance |
Bam! How you like me now?!

Steve Angello and Alex Metric have a song that has been so overlooked. The new video teaser is above and the DL for the full song below. Really exciting stuff, personally. It’s called “Open Your Eyes”.
Open Your Eyes (Original Mix)
And then this Afrojack track was released earlier this week and it’s got his name written all over it: happy synths against a strong bassline, pretty basic in some places and complex in others. Check out “Doing It Right”:
Doing It Right (Original Mix)
Finally, the brand new Justice song! Totally electronic, and absolutely smashing, all about “Civilization”, and it’s pretty damn unique.
I love Avicii. Easily my favorite DJ. I wish I could marry him and just hug him forever. He remixed Tiesto‘s “Escape Me” and called it the “Avicii’s Remix at Night”:
Escape Me (Avicii’s Remix At Night)

And now for your dubstep fix: the Eyes Remix of Katy Perry’s “E.T.”.
E.T. (EYES Remix)
The Flinch Remix of Hussle Club’s “Loose Tights”.

Electronic Tuesdays Start Here

March 15th, 2011 by | Dance, Dubstep, Electronic Tuesday, House, Trance |

Hey guys. I’m Sarah, from ChinUp Music over yonder in the blog-o-sphere. I’ll be giving you your Electronic Tuesdays hype up. A great way to start the week, in my opinion. And don’t worry, I’ll always give you a heads up on before the jump. For this first post, I’m going to introduce you to the classic electronic/house artists out there.

I’m going to do 3 artists per post so as not to overwhelm anyone (or myself). I’m not going to go through the first. original, influential ones from the 80s – house music has come such a long way that they almost don’t fit into house anymore. They were DJs who experimented with a certain style of beats to create a genre that would eventually branch out into Dubstep, Trance, Techno, Electronica, and more. Today, those artists include Deadmau5, Benny Benassi and Paul Oakenfold (King of Trance).
