Video Premiere: Taylor Swift Ft. – Bad Blood

by: Taj | May 18th, 2015

Taylor Swift has just released a new song called “Bad Blood” and the accompanying visual is just INSANE!! Besides the fact that it has a gazillion cameos from some of the hottest vixens in Hollywood (Selena Gomez, Cindy Crawford, Jessica Alba & Ellie Goulding just to name a few) the theatrical vid plays like a high-octain Hollywood action movie – And one I would actually want to see!!! I mean who wouldn’t want to see Taylor duking it out with her arch nemesis Selena Gomez?

Video Premiere: Britney Spears Ft. Iggy Azalea – Pretty Girls

by: Taj | May 13th, 2015

Well here it is… The hotly anticipated visual for Britney Spears’ latest single “Pretty Girls” which features a lot of assistance from Iggy Azalea. I’m loving/hating the clip at the same time. I love the 80s campiness, I think Britney looks amazing, the dance-break was unexpected and fun! The “acting” scene in the middle of the clip was just awful in every way! The ending was cheesy and boring. But overall it’s a fun, mindless pop video!

Video Premiere: Aiden Leslie – I Just Go

by: Taj | April 15th, 2015

Stop what you’re doing and watch the just released music video for the latest single by Aiden Leslie titled “I Just Go“. A beautifully written song about walking down a destructive road in a relationship that you probably should have gotten out of already! Yes, I’m sure we can all relate at one point or another in our lives! I’m loving that the vocal is giving me a little bit of an 80’s vibe set to a sleek modern production! Check it out…

Video Premiere: Madonna – Ghosttown

by: Taj | April 8th, 2015

Madonna has just dropped the brand new video for her latest single “Ghosttown” and I have to say that the Queen has not left us disappointed with the quality of her music videos so far this era! The “Ghosttown” clip is one of her best in years and is reminiscent of some of her more cinematic videos (“Take A Bow,” “Power of Goodbye“) that we use to love so much! This Rebel Heart era has proven to be one of her best musically and now also visually! It has solidified itself as one of my personal favorite M album eras… I hope she keeps the quality music/vids coming!!

My Madonna “Living For Love” (MEGAPOST)

by: Taj | February 20th, 2015

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!

Now on the mashup front… Well there’s my new one that I did with Matt Bailer of course (Yes that was a shameless plug) BUT have you seen/heard the Robin Skouteris mix which perfectly marries the song with Haddaway’sWhat Is Love“? Perfection!!

Finally, have you guys seen the epic remix video set to the Offer Nissim and features clips from the music vid as well as Madonna’s Grammy performance?! We can all thank DJ DigiMark for producing this little gem! I absolutely LOVE IT and so will you! Just press play…

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

by: Taj | February 20th, 2015

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

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!

Remix Video: Madonna – Living For Love (Taj x JRMX Mashup) DJ Riley York Version

by: Taj | February 10th, 2015

Whenever I visit Chicago, I always hit up a legendary little club called Berlin to attend a monthly event called Madonnaramma that’s spun by the very talented DJ Riley York. So I was absolutely honored when Riley took it upon himself to create a remix video for my “Living For LoveJRMX mashup using M’s just released music video! He did an amazing job as always and I will definitely be dropping this visual into my sets! Of course I’ll also be dropping the insane remix video edited by Cr@zy4Madonna as well so I guess my dance floor will be hearing/seeing a lot of this song in the coming weeks! 😉 Check it out…

Video Premiere: Madonna – Living For Love

by: Taj | February 5th, 2015

Madonna has just unleashed the beast that is her new music video for her single “Living For Love“! The clip just premiered on the cellphone app Snapchat and is the first music video to ever make it’s debut on the notorious application which is usually associated with recording & sending a funny (or often scandalous) 2 second long recorded video clip that the receiving party can only view one time before it’s “erased” forever. (Unless you’ve also downloaded an app that can record the clip to your phone)

Anyhow, the video once again takes on the matador/bullfighting theme that’ve seen M has portrayed before in her iconic “Take A Bow” video and somewhat continued in her “You’ll See” clip. However, this time around Madonna has flipped the script and has taken on the roll of the matador that’s wrestling the beast into submission. The entire video plays out on a theater type stage where Madonna tangos (well not literally, but she does dance) with her minotaurs male dancers. I’m guessing we’re going to see a lot of similar costumes & choreography at the Grammys this Sunday.

And let’s talk about that Friedrich Nietzsche quote that the video close with;

“Man is the cruelest animal. At tragedies, bullfights, and crucifixions he has so far felt best on earth; and when he invented hell for himself, behold, that was his very heaven.”

Ending the clip with such a profound statement makes it clear that the entire message behind the song and imagery delves far beyond the obvious theme of a relationship gone sour. It’s a metaphor for something much bigger… The struggle to hold on to faith and love in a world that’s currently so consumed with so much chaos and darkness. Either that or she just really, really, really loves a good matador costume!

Check out the new vid and let me know if you’re “living” for it…

Video Premiere: Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney – FourFiveSeconds

by: Taj | February 4th, 2015

So according to Rihanna’s Vevo page which just debuted the video for the song “FourFiveSeconds“… This song IS in fact the first single from her forthcoming album. Ummmm… It’s a little left-field for sure. I DO like the song… First single “like”?! Hell no! RIH-diculous choice! The video is pretty simple like the song … But for some reason I do have the sudden urge to go out and buy a Guess denim jacket after watching it!

Video Premiere: Gwen Stefani – Spark The Fire

by: Taj | December 1st, 2014

Gwen Stefani is moving on pretty fast from her first dud of a single “Baby Don’t Lie” and has just released the music video her much more radio friendly follow up, “Spark The Fire“. Fun song, fun video… But will this do the trick?! The Pharrell produced track is definitely taylor made for the clubs so I’m hoping people give it more of a chance than her first  go. Check it out..
