Kylie Minogue has just released her first single off of her holiday album and turns out that the new tune isn’t as “holiday” oriented as expected! It’s actually a sweet cover of Alison Moyet’s “Only You” performed as a duet with James Corden. I am instantly obsessed with this version and certain you will be too! Get into it…
The emotional Diane Warren written track performed by Lady Gaga “Til It Happens To You” has been given an official remix treatment! The legendary Diane Warren has once again penned an amazingly beautiful & haunting ballad which the boys of Dirty Pop have managed to magnify the raw emotion of with their dramatic club mix! This is a must listen!!
Superstar DJ/producer Wayne G has taken on a classic house record to reboot with his new Peyton assisted single “High“… Yes, the one originally recorded by Lighthouse Family! I always say that you are treading on very thin ice when taking on a classic of this magnitude but I’m relieved to say that Wayne and Peyton KNOCKED IT OUT THE PARK! Wayne & Leo Frappier did an amazing job updating the production enough to sound current while maintaining the uplifting, breezy vibe of the original! More importantly, the part that really could have really thrown in a wrench in this reboot (no matter how great the production was) is the vocal which Peyton also totally nailed! He sounds enough like Tunde Baiyewu (Lighthouse Family lead vocalist) without taking too many liberties to totally re-interpert a house music classic that most people want to hear intact, while still managing to add some of his soulful flare to his vocals to make it his own!
Barry Harris took on the new Ellie Goulding track “On My Mind” as his remix conquest and took a page of inspiration from his past catalog for the new production! As you listen to this fun new remix, you start to hear little synth similarities that sounds a bit familiar from the Thunderpuss days, then all of the sudden Whitney Houston herself makes a surprise cameo into the song and it’s nothing short of EPIC! Chills the first time I heard it – Literally!! I don’t want to give away anymore spoilers… Just listen!!
Can we all just go ahead and agree that Gwen Stefani’s heartbreaking new song “Used to Love You” is AMAZING!!! The extremely personal lyrics are obviously the direct result of her high profile divorce from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. Heartbreak may not be best for the heart, but boy do they make for top-notch songwriting material! Gwen recently revealed the song and dubbed it as the official lead single from her forthcoming album that she’s been working on. Apparently the album which she had already recorded with that contained the lackluster tracks “Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark The Fire” has been completely scrapped and she’s been recording a new record that feels “right” to her. Gwen found major success with a song she wrote about a prior failed relationship with her No Doubt mega-hit “Don’t Speak” and something tells me this new breakup ballad will fair well for her as well!
From my understanding, Madonna was actually considering a 4th single with “Devil Pray” in mind but decided against anymore releases for now. This is the Dirty Pop remix that was submitted to Madge and I have to say that it’s pretty damn EPIC!! She should really reconsider releasing it, even if it’s only a club single with a hot remix package!
The boys of Dirty Pop have just released their first original track called “Gag“! The debut single is a delicious blend of EDM & circuit. I have been really into this hybrid sound lately and look forward to playing this track in my sets.
Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour has been well on it’s way to reave reviews so it’s only natural that rock-star producer Barry Harris has just released his brand new take on her classic “Vogue” in celebration of her latest concert outing! Barry has once again knocked his Madonna remix out the park and delivered a fresh production that sounds very “current” while retaining some of its original dancefloor charm. Check out the remix video and get ready to get a good arm work out as you bust out into your best vogue dance moves!
DJ MichaelAngelo & DJ DigiMark have once again delivered a massive new mashup and remix video! This time around they have taken on Janet Jackson’s new single “No Sleep” and given it an upbeat, funk-driven vibe using a RedTop produced instrumental. I like this version a whole lot better than the sleepy (pun totally intended) original version. Check out the hot mashup produced by DJ MichaelAngelo and equal as hot remix visual that was edited by DJ DigiMark!
My favorite remix of “Bitch I’m Madonna” – The Sick Individuals remix – just got an official remix video! Press play to watch hot beats and sick drops put to the high-octane visual! Oh, and get ready to RAAAAAGGGGEEEE because this is a club-banger!!!
What do you get when you cook up an Nervo EDM at high temperature, topped with Kylie Minogue, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and a dash of Nile Rogers? ONE MASSIVE EXPLOSION OF EDM-POP, THAT’S WHAT! Take a listen to this next big summer anthem…
I think Rihanna figured out how to save this snooze of an era. She released 2 songs that barely made an impression on fans and the charts. The most recent, “Bitch Better Have My Money“, has been released for a few months now and didn’t receive a video treatment until just today… I had lost all hope for this era until I watched the just released clip! Rihanna has really just sent a shock-wave through the music industry with a dark and controversial video that’s full of nudity, drugs and violence! I’m not sure that I like the song any better but the vid definitely accomplished one thing… She’s visually slapped me across the face and has my attention! Check it out…
Why has this 7th Heaven remix of Jason Derulo’s “Want You To Want Me” not been released and promoted heavily already?!!! It’s a stellar uplifting commercial house production that highlights the upbeat vibe of the song! This is going to be my jam for the weekend, hopefully yours too!
