A flood of new music

So last weekend I went to TheKollection and just downloaded basically every mixtape and song on their website. After a week of listening to everything (or at least trying to), here are some gems. I'll probably make several posts as it was a grab bag of college rap, house, and dubstep, and any college DJ can appreciate the utility of these three genres in different situations. First up, the house music.

I was really surprised that this song wasn't posted yet, but I'm kinda glad it wasn't because I wanted the opportunity to share it with you. It's another one from Avicii (OBVIOUSLY), this one with AMAZING vocals. The beat is great but not extraordinary, but the vocals are just incredible. Easily top 5 vocals in a house song ever. Yolanda Selini absolutely kills this track.

Avicii - Enough is Enough by rhapsody1447

Next up is another hit from Martin Solveig. Glad to see this guy isn't just a one hit wonder. The song is pretty chill but its a great way to transition into dance music as the night progresses. Check it:

Martin Solveig - "The Night Out" by vinylandvodka

Here is an interesting track, a remix by Aylen of No Sleep by Wiz Khalifa. A great song in its own right, Aylen adds just the right amount of bass and synth to make this a dancable (danceable?) track.

Finally, I'm sure everyone has heard "Blessed" by Avicii by now (if not, just get it. Immediately. I'll wait...)

Back? Good. Here's a mashup of Blessed with a song by Nicki Minaj (not my favorite rapper by a long shot, but it works here). Grab it and throw it on and throw the dancefloor for a loop.

Look for a few more posts in the near future as I discover more music. Until then, keep calm and rage on!

TTRainReck of Cars

TTRainReck is a song by Joey Ruckus that definitely gives insight to the going out culture of college. If we want to go so far to say that this could be a night at the JUG, I would agree, lol! This song is awesome, posted both the soundcloud and youtube page, think the video is awesome! Make sure to grab a copy!

Save The World (Dino Roc & DJ CJ Remix)

Lights RAC remix

A great original track by Ellie Goulding remixed yet again.  This time by RAC out of Portland did an amazing job with this, has an awesome chill feeling to it.  The beat that drops at about 45 seconds in is what gets me in this remix.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, make sure to get a copy of it!

Back From The Break

I am back, DJayB , sorry for the few posts that we had in July but hopefully going to catch back up and provide some great new tracks

Have 4 great ones in store for this post, couple of mash-ups and a couple of remixes. First up "we can play some rock n' roll" in Skrillex vs Afrojack in The Way We Rock The World, a Barletta mash-up. Opens with great bass and vocals, and drops well after a well mixed intro. Make sure to grab a copy over at soundcloud on Barletta's page.

Skrillex VS Afrojack - The Way We Rock the world (Barletta Mash) by Barletta

Next up we have a Sweedish House Mafia remix that is amazing. It is a little on the shorter side, but can be used well in live sets and mixes the beat after the opening vocals makes this remix sweet! Can't wait to start using this in sets!

Swedish House Mafia - Save The World (AN21 & Max Vangeli Remix) by officialswedishhousemafia

This song has been everywhere and here is yet another remix of Levels by Avicii, a Clockwork Remix, which was done with perfection. Make sure to get a copy of it at the soundcloud page, hope you enjoy this, because "sometimes I get a good feeling!!"

Final song for the post is a mash-up production by 3LAU called Yacht Week In America, which combines many current songs in a unique way. I am a huge fan of it, but what do you think?

Workout Jams

Starting off today we have a mashup by Basic Physics (of Like A G6 N' Stuff fame) entitled Illmerican Dancer. Those well-versed in new EDM will correctly guess that this song is a mashup of Illmerica and Street Dancer by Wolfgang Gartner and Avicii, respectively, and they'd be correct. But, just for good measure, BP adds in some vocals from Sofi and others to tie the track together. I didn't even have to listen to this song before I was downloading it and posting it on here, but it's playing right now and let me tell you, its a guaranteed home run. Bust this bad boy out during the week at the gym and on the weekend on the dance floor (or at your barbeque, whatever). No matter what, its going to enhance whatever you're doing.

Another gem from the Electro Kollection, this number is a remix of The Island by French Prodigy Madeon. The kid is only 17 years old and he is tearing it up, first with his amazing raise your weapon remix (also found on this very blog), and now this. Excellent track, can't wait for more from this promising producer.

Pendulum - The Island (Madeon Remix) by Madeon

I know, I know, this is another mashup involving Skrillex, and even I'm starting to get weary. But this mashup is seamless and well, if the dude is hot then he's hot, not much we can do to change that. If people are going to make banging, upbeat mashups such as this one all involving skrillex, it would be unfair of me to selectively NOT post them just because one of the guys is all over the place, right? Either way, grab this one because its a great listen, and maybe play this guy on rotation with other skrillex mashups over the course of a few nights so as not to beat his work to death too soon.

Flashback Is All I Ask (Steve Mits Mash Up) by The Kollection

Here's an unexpected find by a group that is completely new to me. F.O.O.L., or "Fuck Our Ordinary Lives", really kill this track as it combines traditional house sounds and structures with a dirty electro backing. Definitely a good heavy track to play late in the night. I'll most definitely have my eye out for these guys in the future.

F.O.O.L - Destruction (Original Mix) by FuckOurOrdinaryLives

Last song is a Gabriel and Dresden remix of Promises by Andain. The vocals in this track are extremely well done and this is a song that has a great trance feel to it that makes it perfect for starting off the night, or serving as a transition from chiller party-starting music to higher-energy party-rocking music.

That's all for now, folks, have a great week and until next time, keep calm and rage on!

All songs found in this post came from Electro Kollection.

Follow the Music

Just saw this song on Dancing Astronaut, and as I type this, listening to this song for the 5th time in a row now, I just have the biggest grin on my face. Wow. Awesome vocals, massive drop, good pacing, this song has it all. Instant classic. I can guarantee this song will come up at least 3-4 times on Saturday. Already so pumped. And as always, listen to it in HD for the full effect (with headphones or good speakers too, this song is undeserving of those crappy Macbook speakers)

Switching it up, here's a solid House/Prog Trance remix from Tristan Garner of "What's the Point". Not particularly dirty but its a very pleasant track, with perfect instrumentation for the summer. This song is the perfect transition from chill summer music to more intense house music as the day drags into the night.

Finally, since I can't resist posting anything even tangentially related to Skrillex, here's a pretty awesome mashup by Felguk of Scary Monsters, combined with "Unleash the Fucking Dada" and Felguk's own "Side by Side". Pretty unique sound I think.

Until next time, folks, enjoy the music and as always, keep calm and rage on!

GloryToAmurrica - The Independence Day Mix

GloryToAmurrica - The Independence Day Mix by Matt Brunetti

This is my first attempt at a live DJ set, made around 1 AM on the 3rd. It's pretty rough around the edges but for a first set I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out especially considering how wild this weekend was. Constructive criticisms are welcome.

Thanks for downloading and enjoy!
