Happy Valentine’s Day (late). I hope you gorged yourself with candies and wine and made love until the sun came up, either with another person, or with yourself, or goshdarnit even with some music. Well that corporate holiday is over so let’s wash away our lonely tears the only way we know how… with some of the foinest dance music tracks you EVER seen at the club. Damn girl, you foine.

New insta-classics from Feed me, Pegboard Nerds, Deadmau5 and my personal favorite act in the world... The Funk Hunters. COOL!

 

FEED ME X KANEHOLLER - TROUBLE

Man I wanted to dig this song, I really did. But then again that’s been my relationship with pretty much every Feed Me track ever. This is a new deeper Feed Me unlike we’ve ever seen. This ain’t bangin’ electro Feed Me. Got made love for the Kaneholler vocals though. Got some pipes and those pipes are bound to go places.

 

THA TRICKAZ X CREAKY JACKALS - OG PURP (CLUB VIP)

In the world where rave is king, the current throne is held by dudes like Jauz and Ghastly. Hard rocking future house x bass house with breaks and trap influences all over. I don’t mind living in that world. This song belongs in one of their sets, and if that’s the state of rave… I fuck with it.

 

PEGBOARD NERDS - HEARTBIT FT. TIA SIMONE

This song is cute. A perfect EDM valentine from Pegboard Nerds to their fans. This song is big and it’s fun and it’s dumb and it’s got that same future house x bass house x wobble sound that OG Purp has and if I’m cool with it once I better be cool with it twice, right?

 

COME TRUISE - DIFFRACTION

Way chill. Chiller. Lay back and put on some headphones and put ice on your nipples kinda chill.

 

SAM FELDT - BEEN A WHILE

Week number #117’s tropical house hit. Don’t forget to listen if you like tropical house; this one’s sure to to be right up your butt.

 

THE WEEKND - I CAN'T FEEL MY FACE CAUSE I'M TRIPPING #@#%&$# (AN-TEN-NAE REMAKE)

An-Ten-Nae, the freaky twonky bass producer out of the Bay Area, went and made it so he could play the Weekend’s "I Can’t Feel My Face" in his dark strange hip-hop sets. Of course his version he’s tripping balls and not just doing cocaine in a radio safe way.

 

THE NICEGUYS - JAMS&JOINTS

Considering that Ghetto Funk is fast becoming one of my favorite labels, turning me on to more funk than George Clinton. Since I’m the one writing these posts, I DO get to push my agenda. Get funky with this joint. Or is it a jam? I don’t care. Funky horns and breaks, I’m in heaven.

 

ODESZA - IT'S ONLY FEAT ZYRA (RUFUS REMIX)

Call me an old curmudgeon, call me a sonofabitch but I’m pretty over what Odesza does. Maybe it’s because every song sounds vaguely exactly like the last one and more and more people are all like, “omg they’re the best band ever,” and they are a snore fest live. BUT I got nothing but love for their tourmates / remix artist, RUFUS or RUFUS DU SOUL. Here they add some much needed soul into "It’s Only" and turn it into a song I actually want to listen to!

 

DEADMAU5 - FUCK YOU TOO

Um Deadmau5 remixing the Beastie Boys.

What?!

 

THE FUNK HUNTERS - NIGHT SPELL 3 - ONE MORE LOVE MIX

For the past three years The Funk Hunters have been dropping the chillest, funkiest, grooviest Valentine’s Day lovers funk mixes. As this act just keeps getting better, so do their mixes. This one is quite sensual. I know we’re significantly past Valentine’s Day— but go find someone to funk with to this. ;)

About Kurt Kroeber

From deep within the murky depths of the Los Angeles River emerged a creature: 50% raver, 50% comedian, 10% Robotcop. Kurt Kroeber doesn’t own a dog, operates Soundbleed (the world’s only dance party comedy talk show rave), and is down to party with you. Come up some time and say “Hey dude!” But definitely make sure to casually drop the secret Illuminati password.
