A couple Friday’s ago I saw Com Truise at Echoplex. This show felt like being in the game Tron but with drugs like speed and cocaine to enhance your skills in the game. It was almost surreal, especially since Com Truise had the lights going in accordance to the beats he was making; truly a sweet show to be at although some vocals would be nice. I really enjoyed all of it as the music puts you in a trance to dance and feels great but I would love some damn vocalist on stage with Com Truise, that would make things really interesting.
Anyways it’s tough to pick a favorite but the most memorable was probably “Brokendate”. Watch the interesting video for that song below.
Last Saturday, a few buddies and I caught, Armand Van Helden, aka 1/2 of critically acclaimed DJ duo Duck Sauce, at Create Nightclub in Hollywood. His DJ set went by super quick although it lasted for over two hours, which shows how entertaining of a set he performed, which was mostly disco and progressive house, lots of fun!
Anyways, I don’t remember a ton of what he spun, but when he performed 2009 Duck Sauce hit “Anyway” and the latest Duck Sauce single, 2013′s “It’s You”. Oh and also his 1996 classic, “The Funk Phenomena”; watch music video’s for those three songs below.

Originally released in the Fall of 2012 by Dennaton Games for PC, “Hotline Miami” was inspired by the 80s aesthetic movie, “Drive.” “Hotline Miami” is now out for Mac, PS3 and PSVita. The game and its accompanying soundtrack has been highly reviewed within the video game community with praise from non-gamers, as well.
Australians Miami Horror DJs (of the band Miami Horror) will be spinning their dance-pop jams at the event as headliner. Miami Horror is known for their 80′s-influenced dance music and single collaborations with artists such as Kimbra and Alan Palomo of Neon Indian.Watch videos to my two favorite Miami Horror songs below.

Story of the Running Wolf is an electro duo based out of Los Angeles, CA. A little bit retro, a little bit future, they blend 80′s influences like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran with modern electro-dance elements, creating an infectious sound that’s all their own. After playing their first show at a rooftop party in early 2012, the band began developing a live show experience which has been described as a “John Hughes party on Neptune”, replete with neon lasers, make-up, fog and feathers. Their new self-titled EP is available for free download at www.sotrw.com.
They just dropped their first song/video from their debut EP, “Stratospheric”. Stream and download their EP below.

Last Wednesday, I experienced the funky sounds of Go Go Bizkitt! and The Phantom’s Revenge at The Central SAPC in Santa Monica, CA. Both DJs were awesome with Go Go Bizkitt spinning that funky disco house vibes all night while The Phantom’s Revenge played mostly disco house with some trap music and some electro vibes. One of my favorite parts of this dance party show was hearing both of the acts remix Daft Punk.
Stream some of my favorite songs from the two rising DJs below.
I’ve been following Kids at The Bar since seeing them live in late 2011 in which they opened for disco house DJ Treasure Fingers at Avalon Hollywood. Since then, they released some massive remixes and in the last month released tow electro bangesr you need to hear!
The latest is an original they released with Whiiite that you can get on beatport. It’s called Tormet and has an electro-house vibe that builds real smoothly into a high energy EDM banger.
Then a few weeks back, Kids at the Bar released a remix to one of their all-time favorite tracks, Justice‘s “DVNO”. It’s a massive banger and been getting positive feedback everywhere they’ve played it.
So MiMoSA has released a new free song that has trap written all over it. At first I really hated trap music but after listening to it enough, I guess you just realize that it’s just DJs making fun of the horrible, dull lyrics and simple beats that mainstream hip-hop/rap radio stations are playing today. It seems all the music that becomes popular today has an electronic base which I enjoy but the lyrics have definitely become more dull for today’s technology-driven and socially-numb generation. Anyways I’m probably not hitting it exactly on the head so I will stick to providing you fun free music.
