Remix Treatment: Aiden Leslie – I Just Go (Taj Remix)

by: Taj | May 6th, 2015

Hey all! So I’m proud to announce that after a whole lot of sweat and tears, my first official remix has just been released! I had the honor to rework Aiden Leslie’s hot new single “I Just Go” and I wanted to take this opportunity share a clip with you guys. I really hope you like it… Please feel free to leave comments/feedback for me and of course if you’re feeling it, make sure you head over to iTunes or Beatport to pick up a copy!


Sneak Peek: Britney Spears & Iggy Azalea – Pretty Girls (Clip)

by: Taj | May 1st, 2015

The chorus for the hotly anticipated Britney Spears/Iggy Azalea duet “Pretty Girls” has just made its way onto the Internet and I’m actually looking forward to hearing the whole thing after this little tease! Britney has veered paths from her typical dance pop singles that she’s been releasing a whole lot of over the last few years and has opted for a 90′s hip hop flare this time around! A nice little change of course if you ask me! But as always, I shall reserve judgement until I hear the song in full….

New Music: Giorgio Moroder Ft. Britney Spears – Tom’s Diner

Giorgio Moroder’sBritney Spears collaboration (a dance remake of Suzan Vega’s 1980 hit “Tom’s Diner“) is making it’s way around the Internet! I really had high hopes for this one and thought it would a perfect song for Brit and Moroder to rework together but after hearing the final product, I’m sad to say I’m left a little disappointed. Britney completely missed the mark on the vocals by completely cheesified the song stylistically in a “Hit Me Baby One More Time” type of way. What made “Tom’s Diner” so popular in the first place was the fact that it was so raw and simplistic. I guess some songs are just not meant to be Britney-fide!

Even if you’re not a fan of Adam Lamberts and think it voice is annoying…. STOP WHAT YOUR DOING AND LISTEN TO HIS NEW SINGLE “GHOST TOWN“!!!

This haunting Max Martin produced track is hands down one of the best records to come out all year! It’s giving me a little Lana Del Rey meets Sam Smith with a pinch of deep house! Press play and get ready to be OBSESSED!!

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…

by: Taj | April 7th, 2015

The Hilary Duff-inator refuses to be ignored!! You didn’t think her first two attempts to woo you back into her pop princess charm were catchy enough? Well she’s just uped the “catchy” factor to all new heights, determined to get her music stuck in your head as it use to before. Take a listen to her secret weapon “Sparks” and I dare you to try to tell me that it’s not stuck in your head by the end of the night! Oh it will be!!

2 new tracks from Rihanna’s forthcoming album have magically appeared online today and TA-DA!!! I have an exclusive listen for you guys! Check out the mid-tempo pop cut  ”Dancing In The Dark” and the gorgeous Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins produced ballad “As Real As You & Me“.

New Music: Calvin Harris Ft. Tinashe – 5AM

by: Taj | February 21st, 2015

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…

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…

Madonna Ft. Natalie Cole – Living For Love (DJ Matt Bailer & Taj vs HQ2 Mashup)

by: Taj | February 18th, 2015



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!!


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!

Take a listen at my new account which is the only place I will be hosting my new remixes/mashups/DJ mixsets! Make sure you follow my account! :)

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!

Madonna Shines At Grammys With “Living For Love” Performance…

by: Taj | February 9th, 2015

Madonna took the stage tonight at the Grammy’s and literally brought the audience to their feet with her epic “Living For Love” performance. The larger than life stage production closely followed the “matador” theme of the music video (which doesn’t come as a surprise since this whole era has been rushed into fast-forward because of all the music leaks). Madonna looked incredible and gave us the type of performance that made us fall in love with her way back when! I think it’s safe to say… The diva is back!
