BBC Radio 1 might not want to play Madonna’sLiving For Love” in their playlist but DJ Taj is playing a whole lot of it!!

MULTIPLE VERSIONS!! 

Check out my new collaboration mashup with my friend DJ Matt Bailer feature additional vocals by Natalie Cole. We used a classic HQ2 dance remix of Natalie’s song “Living For Love” as the back drop and incorporated some of Natalie’s vocals to give the Madonna song a fresh “new” backup vocal!

by: Taj | February 23rd, 2015 | No Comments »

New “it” couple, Zedd & Selena Gomez have just unleashed the product of their blooming romance… A hot EDM banger called “I Want You To Know“! I’ve been a longtime fan of both Selena and Zedd so this is a no-brainer… I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Check it out… And even if I didn’t, I would still support it out of sheer gratitude that Zedd is keeping Mrs. Gomez far away from Justin Bieber. Do I really need any other reason??

Stefani Germanotta Impresses At Oscars!

by: Taj | February 23rd, 2015 | No Comments »

Stefani Germanotta took the stage at the 2015 Oscars and literally stole the entire show with her The Sound Of Music tribute medley. Hats off to an amazing performance. Here’s hoping that she lays off the gimmicks a little and gets back to using that amazing voice to put out some solid pop records once again. (Her recent recording studio stint with longtime production collaborator RedOne suggest she may just be doing just that!)

New Music: Kelly Clarkson – Invincible

by: Taj | February 22nd, 2015 | No Comments »

After her debut single “Heartbeat Song” failed to make an impact with listeners, Kelly Clarkson has quickly moved on to a sure-fire Sia penned hit titled “Invincible“. This mid-tempo ballad is the embodiment of pop-perfection and should do the trick to get Kelly back on top! Check it out…

“Ghosttown” Confirmed As Madonna’s Next Single!

by: Taj | February 22nd, 2015 | 5 Comments »

Madonna has handpicked her next single off of her forthcoming Rebel Heart album and has chosen a ballad for her second go! “Ghosttown” has been a fan-favorite since its release so she made a lot of people happy with this choice for follow-up single… Personally I would have preferred another upbeat number before she turned to a ballad (“Hold Tight” being my first choice) but I definitely love “Ghosttown” so I won’t complain. M also has long-time collaborator Jonas Akerlund lined up to produce the video, so it’s safe to say we can expect an epic visual to accompany the release! Are you excited for Madonna’s next single choice?

New Music: Calvin Harris Ft. Tinashe – 5AM

by: Taj | February 21st, 2015 | No Comments »

A new Calvin Harris track called “5AM” has surfaced online and features a very Rihanna-esque vocal by Tinashe. Either this is a scrapped track for his own album or an intended demo for Rihanna’s forthcoming release! Either way, I’m really feeling it… Or maybe I’m not feeling it but wanted to find an excuse to post a picture of Calvin in his underwear. No really it’s a fun song! Take a listen…

So I’m really trying not to post too much about Madonna’s latest single “Living For Love” (too late right?) even though everytime I take a breath another amazing official, bootlegs, remix video or mashup of my own pops up! So instead of posting 20 news L4L related posts, this will be my “Living For Love” MEGAPOST which I will update as more blog-worthy version cross my path! Let’s get started…

Today M released her part 2 batch of official remixes which include 2 HOT new productions by Dirty Pop & StoneBridge! I absolutely LOVE both! StoneBridge delivered the house sound I really wanted to hear for this record while Dirty Pop’s part 2 is literally my favorite remix of all the officials! It’s an EDM meets circuit hybrid mix and just absolutely NAILS IT!  Take a listen to both stellar productions!

Video Premiere: Dave Audé Ft. Jessica Sutta – I’m Gonna Get You

by: Taj | February 20th, 2015 | No Comments »

Dave Aude and Jessica Sutta’s fun dance single “I’m Gonna Get You” not only samples a 90′s dance classic (Bizarre Inc’s song with the same titles) but the just releases video also borrows heavily from the 90s as well! The  throwback clip brings back some nostalgic memories of some of my favorite 90s acts! I’m having some C+C Music Factory and CeCe Penistan flashbacks! Check it out…

Video Premiere: Calvin Harris Ft. HAIM – Pray To God

by: Taj | February 11th, 2015 | 1 Comment »

One of my two favorite tracks off of Calvin Harris’ latest albums has been officially released as a single and now has a music video! “Pray To God” featuring HAIM is by far one of the strongest tracks that Mr. Harris had to offer off of Motion and I was getting a little nervous it wouldn’t see a release!

I would best describe “Pray To God” as a Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks inspired take on EDM and it’s one of those infectious songs that instantly grabs your attention and gets stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Now if he follows this single up with “Love Now” featuring All About She all my Calvin Harris prayers will be answered!
