artworks 000020259511 08zonv original Stream+buy: Diplo and Don Diablo   Make You Pop (Charlie Darker remix)Charlie Darker is the next big artist in electronic dance music! Slowed to 112 BPM, Darker’s remix brings a rougher edge to the original track from Diplo and Don Diablo, shaping it for the dirtyness of a dark, sweaty dancefloor. With less bleeps and blops, he accentuates the tribal build-up, leading the listener into a distortion-heavy drop that’s sure to leave you wanting more.

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

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

6249 300x225 Electronic Tuesdays *Shapes of Light, Jamie XX, Dan CastroFinals 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.

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,

Why are we whispering ReVox *Animale – Don Diablo ft. Dragonette

March 2nd, 2011 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Why are we whispering 600x579 Why are we whispering ReVox *Animale – Don Diablo ft. DragonetteThe collaboration between iSH & Don Diablo better known as Why are we Whispering in which they remix electro-Pop songs adding a little hip-hop from iSH and more electronica from Don Diablo.

Below is their latest remix to Don Diablo/Dragonette’s 2010 EuroPop hit, “Animale”. This latest Why are we Whispering remix still keeps in tact the best parts of the original “Animale” while adding some good verses from iSH and Don Diablo remixing it a bit while keeping Dragonette’s pop vocals. I continue to love the collaboration and so far Why are we Whispering hasn’t disappointed at all. Download

By the way, if your in the UK, cop this song now, since the track won’t be released in the UK until April 10th. However the UK record label gave iSH and Don Diablo the clearance to share this exclusive remix for free!

Dev – Bass Down Low (Why are we whispering Remix)

February 18th, 2011 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Remix |

Why are we whispering 600x579 Dev   Bass Down Low (Why are we whispering Remix)iSH and Don Diablo, better known as Why are we whispering, just put out a hot new remix over the club radio banger by Dev, “Bass down low”. Above is footage behind the scenes of the recording of the remix. The original is catchy but this remix is on another level with really good rapping from iSH and Don Diablo taking the song in a less poppy tone.

iSH + Don Diablo = Why are we whispering? *must DL

January 26th, 2011 by | Dance, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

 iSH + Don Diablo = Why are we whispering? *must DLThis is a MUST DOWNLOAD. One of my favorite up-and-coming artists, iSH, collaborates with one of the hottest DJ/Producers around the world, Don Diablo, to form “Why are we whispering”. First song Don Diablo/iSH remix is “Hello” by Martin Solveig & Dragonette.

My statement for the original “Hello” is “this song can be on the radio”. After iSH spits some dope verses and Don Diablo jumps on to remix the track, now the statement becomes “this song NEEDS to be on the radio”.

Not so Hidden Gem: Dragonette

November 4th, 2010 by | Dubstep, Electro, Electropop, Music Video, Remix |

Dragonette is a Canadian ElectroPop group that started in 2005. They have released two albums and two EPs, most recently dropping their Mixin to Thrill EP in August 2010. Above is the music video for a song that should be on the radio!

The reason I’m writing about them is Dragonette was recently featured in two electronica songs: “Hello” with Martin Solveig, and “Animale” with Don Diablo. I like both these tracks and wouldn’t be surprised to see “Hello” on the radio very soon.

Hello (Original Mix)

Animale

Bonus: I’m still on the fence whether I like the original “Animale” or the Datsik remix which is more dubstep/electro.
