New Music: Deborah Cox – Kinda Miss You

by: Taj | January 29th, 2015 | 1 Comment »

Deborah Cox is back in a big way and she’s here to remind us why we fell in love with her in the first place! The diva has just released a new single called “Kinda Miss You” which I would describe as a perfect blend of r&b and dance! (Basically the winning formula that she’s always found the best success with)

Fresh off the heals of the Whitney Houston biopic (which Deborah provided the impeccable singing vocals for) the timing for this single couldn’t be any better! Not to mention that song is extremely hot and current! If you’re a fan of what Disclosure did with Sam Smith’sLatch,” you will be a STAN for this one! I predict a big comeback for Mrs. Cox! Check it out…

Remix Treatment: David Guetta Ft. Emeli Sande – What I Did For Love (David Guetta & Morten Remix)

by: Taj | January 29th, 2015 | No Comments »

So I am really into the new David Guetta & Emeli Sande song “What I Did For Love“. Hands down the best track on his album which I’m hoping will be the breakout hit from his latest effort! While it’s hard to top the impeccable original version, I had to share this David Guetta & Morten remix with you guys. It’s a hybrid mix which incorporates a little classic house sound with EDM and electro! I know, I know… Sounds like a hot mess but it’s not! It’s pretty amazing! Check it out…

Remix Treatment: Whitney Houston – How Will I Know (Oliver Nelson Remix)

I know we’re all still trying to recover from that tragic TLC Whitney Houston biopic and I think I found just the thing to cleanse that bitter taste from our mouth. While I would have LOVED some official remixes of Deborah Cox’ amazing covers of Whitney’s music (which was the BEST part of that movie, BTW) we got something even better… A new remix of a classic Whitney song!! Check out this nu-disco Oliver Nelson remix of “How Will I Know“!! Press play and you’ll forgetting those executive Whitney/Bobby sex scenes in no time.

Remix Treatment: Kelly Clarkson – Heartbeat Song (JRMX Remix)

by: Taj | January 25th, 2015 | No Comments »

I hate to say it but Kelly Clarkson’s new single “Heartbeat Song” has been getting lukewarm reviews from some fans! Fortunately for Kelly, the talented producer JRMX has stepped in to deliver a blazing remix of the song that will surely heat you up if you were at all on the fence about the new song.

New Music: Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney – FourFiveSeconds

by: Taj | January 25th, 2015 | No Comments »

Rihanna has just premiered an interesting new song and collaboration with Kanye West & Paul McCartney. The song is titled “FourFiveSeconds” and is a departure from what fans have come to expect from Ri-Ri. The acoustic new track trades in dance beats and urban swag for a folk-pop feel. While it’s not quite certain yet if this song will even appear on Rihanna’s forthcoming new album, I think it’s safe to say this is definitely not the official lead single if it is. One thing is for certain… This new artist Paul McCartney is going to BLOW UP after Rihanna duets with him!

Madonna – Living For Love (Taj x JRMX Mashup) UPDATED WITH DL LINK

UPDATE: FINALLY FINISHED! MIXCLOUD DOWNLOAD LINK!!!

UPDATE: FINALLY FINISHED! MIXCLOUD DOWNLOAD LINK!!!

——————————————————————————————

—————————————————————————————————

So now that the official remixes of Madonna’s new single “Living For Love” are out… I can’t help but feel like they covered a lot of bases with the official remix package except for the one sound that a lot of us wanted to hear this song reinvented into. Where is the classic, uplifting house sound?! Moto Blanco, Freemasons, Wayne G or Gorgon City maybe?!! So I took it upon myself to rework the track with a little JRMX instrumental that I felt worked PERFECTLY with the song and gave it the euphoric house lift it needed! Still a work in progress so no download (for now) but if you like it, make sure you follow me on SOUNDCLOUD in case I post it sometime in the near future! ;)

Madonna Unveils ‘Rebel Heart’ Tracklisting On Itunes…

by: Taj | January 19th, 2015 | 4 Comments »

Madonna fans were treated today when the entire track listing for her forthcoming album ‘Rebel Heart‘ meticulously appeared on iTunes today. As everyone already knows, the entire album (and then some) leaked online in demo-form a few weeks back. Since then, fans have been listening to 30-some songs that were being considered for the 19 track album on repeat and getting waaaaay to attached to their favorites. The problem with this is that not all their “favorites” are going to make the final cut and the ones that do will most likely sound dramatically different from the version that have been become so familiar with.

I have posted absolutely nothing about the leaked demos on my blog out of respect for Madonna’s writing/production process for that very reason. But I am not a saint… Yes curiosity has gotten the best of me and I have listened to all of the demos and have my favorites and tracks that I was praying didn’t make the cut. So after seeing the finalized track listing, I have to admit that I am happy overall… BUT, my #1 favorite didn’t make the cut while my very least favorite did end up on the album! (“Holy Water” over “Addicted“?!! WTF?!!!) Buuuuutttt… Out of the respect for the artistic process, I won’t linger too much on that and accept that she has her reasons.

Again, overall I’m very happy with the songs that did make the cut and there are rumors of a 25 track SUPER DELUXE edition of the album so there’s still hope for everyone’s wish list! So without further ado, here is final tracklist in all of its glory. How do you guys feel about it? Did your favorites make it?

 

Remix Treatment: Madonna – Devil Pray (Bit Error Remix)

by: Taj | January 18th, 2015 | No Comments »

While Madonna and co are busy hand picking and promoting new remixes for her latest single “Living For Love,” I’ve hand picked an amazing remix of my favorite track from the first batch of songs that she’s released, “Devil Pray“. This hot production is the creative handy work of Bit Error and gives the song an entirely new vibe! I would say it’s a nice mixture of a piano driven, throwback house feel with a very fresh & current edge! Check it out…
