BEST ELECTRO HOUSE - WEEK 6 2014
With the sad sad doldrums of January behind us, we're finally starting to head towards festival season. Ultra is only 53 days away and Coachella an easy 66 (but who's counting??????? HAHAHAHHA lol, not mE!). Time for the world's greatest (and worst, and most mediocre) producers to start finishing or previewing or releasing those tracks that they're gonna WOW the world with in 2014. Such Wow. Some of this shit is old and some of it is new, but over the next couple of weeks more and more and more NEW songs will pop on our radar. Yay 4 that!!!
Cause if you keep playing the same shit, ain't no one gonna like you anymore. INNOVATE, musicians. Make us excited! Whatchu got?
THE CHAINSMOKERS - #SELFIE
I'm not even sure what this song sounds like. I tried to listen to this song six times but am 0/6 in the hearing any of the actual music department. Upon each listen, I rage black out every single time I hear this bitch speak. It's way too real and way too accurate. Can't handle. If I never hear that awful voice again it'll still be two years too soon. Six times was seven times too many.
DADA LIFE - BORN TO RAGE (SPAIN FAN VIDEO)
If I were Spanish AND loved Dada Life this would be my favorite shit ever. This is some pretty epic Spanish Pride footage. It's as if Dada Life didn't make 50+ versions of this song and instead actually wrote it about Spain.
It's really sad that Dada Life in the height of their prime decided to call it quits though. They will be severely missed. I can't even imagine a future where I don't get to hear one Dada Life set a year that sounds 70% like the one I heard the year before. :(
DUBVISION & FIREBEATZ - ROCKIN
Martin Garrix called. He wants his locker combination back. Y'all are full grown adults, stop creepin on 14 year olds.
JEREMY OLANDER & FEHRPLAY - BALBOA
Jeremy Olander & Fehrplay (aka Eric Prydz Jr and Derrick Prydz) must have gotten a little push from daddy to produce together. BUT ain't nothing wrong with results. This shit is almost like something the man would have produced himself. It's always nice to hear some music that doesn't sound like everything else. Sure it sounds like SOMETHING else (pryda lite). But something is DEF better than everything.
DEADMAU5 - HEAVY PETTING ZOO
Some beautiful new deadmau5 music is happening on the internet, but because he's only giving it out to his 'suckscribers' it's getting lost in the deep corners of the internet. Well the good news here is that all of the internet's real freaks head to YouTube. They rip that shit and put it up for u and me 2 hear. I'll take summa dat dark heavy thumping bass shit. Keep it angry mau5. Can't wait to hear the album.
SURRENDER - BIOCHEMICAL
Groovy lil tech-house jam that's perfect to hear 1000 times at different club nights and each time exclaim, "oh shit, i love that song!" and then have to shazam it again and and again and again in perpetuity. U actin like that's a bad thing? It's not. Go stream Todd Terje - Strandbar (Samba) or Ninetoes - Finder and you'll know exactly what i'm talking about.
STEVE AOKI & AUTOEROTIQUE VS DMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE - FEEDBACK
I won't even listen. I'd rather chop my dick off.
HARDWELL FT. MATTHEW KOMA - DARE YOU
Hardwell wrote Spaceman. For that he should get an eternal pass in the dance music hall of fame. Hardwell also turned Spaceman into Call me A Spaceman (Extended Vocal Mix). For that he should be drawn and quartered. This song lies somewhere in the middle.
STARCADIAN - CHINATOWN
Some straight up future disco electro funk cheese. Imagine Chromeo without the hook or Daft Punk without any of the talent. My recommendation? Spend less money on your music video, dude, and more money on a better mic and production class or two.
THE PRESETS - GOODBYE FUTURE
Some straight up future disco electro funk GOLD. The Presets are one of Australia's finest exports. The best live dance band in the nation, with vocals that straight up 80s rock and grooves that don't stop. This is a nice lil surprise song from some of my favorite boys. I wasn't expecting anything new from these guys as they rock more of that album steez than single shit. Not complaining. Not complaining.
SOULDISCO - TOP OF THE WORLD
I haven't heard a disco-house track this rad since I first found out who Breakbot was. It's featuring Skyy, who the Soundcloud description claims is someone important in the scheme of disco. I don't know anything about Skyy, but I am going to choose to believe. It's much easier to just have faith, you know? That's why so many ppl are content believing in God. Sometimes it's just easier to accept the reality that is placed in front of you. Disco Faith 2014?
ANGEL HAZE FEAT. SIA - BATTLE CRY (MK REMIX)
We'RE dealing with some royalty on this track. Angel Haze is the fucking queen of bitch-hop, and I def side my allegiance with her in the seven year Azealia Banks wars. Sia is the muse to the tyrannical King of cheese, Sir David of Guetta.
And MK… he's a fucking Prince Midas. EVERYTHING he touches (remixes) turns to Gold. He's def the prince and not the King though, cause unlike his father he can control his power. He uses it for good and not accidentally touching his wife and making it so he can't ever have sex ever again or whatever.
Go forth Mark Kinchen, touch all of the songs.
ANAMANAGUCHI - PROM NIGHT (LINDSAY LOWEND REMIX)
For a genre that's existed as long Nintendo has, chiptune is finally getting some legitimacy. Anamanguchi straight up port Game Boy sounds into their guitars and rock that shit out live. And then one of my favorite up-and-coming producers, Lindsay Lowend, gets to pop in and ramp it the fuck up. I'll take video game music any goddamn day. Have you heard the Silver Surfer soundtrack? That shit's as good as 94.7% of music released today. Fuck, it's definitely better than Aoki and Dmitiri Vegas & Like Mike song. But then again, I'm partial to not consuming garbage as if it were nourishment and didn't even listen to it, so I wouldn't know.

Oh, you don't want it?
Well your LOSS, cause you're gonna have to deal with me for the rest of eternity! We got hitched Vega$ style with this one -- i'm your new life partner. Good thing I only show up once a week, give you some good songs and disappear back into the internet. JK, i'm all over the internet.
