On behalf of the entire dance community, I would like to thank you Barry Harris for revisiting your classic Thunderpuss sound with some of your recent productions and bringing back the TP drama to the dancefloor! For those of you that haven’t heard, Barry is back and has been unleashing some pretty stellar productions that are stylistically nostalgic of his infamous Thunderpuss days while incorporating some “new school” elements as well! His latest… Ariana Grande & Zedd’s “Break Free“. I’ve loved this song from first listen but always wished that the production had a little more “oomph” behind Ariana’s powerhouse vocals. Thanks to Barry, it finally has enough “oomph” to properly blow your speakers with… And it’s a free download!! What are you waiting for?! Download, press play and let those speakers blow!!!
Madonna’s birthday is almost over, but the party celebration hasn’t ended yet without someone getting a gift. Well it turns out that the someone to receive a gift is us!! An unreleased Pharrell produced Madonna & Eve collaboration has made its way online today for our listening pleasure . It’s was obviously recorded during the Hard Candy era since it sounds very similar to Madonna’s “Beat Goes On” and “Candy Shop“. This is also probably the very reason why the song was never released. What are you waiting for? Press plan and get crazy with that beat!!
Eve Ft. Madonna – The Beat Is So Crazy:
TMZ have gotten their hands on Lady Gaga’s never released “Do What U Want” music video and uncovered the controversial reason it was shelved and never seen by her fans. The reason might really surprise you…
“TMZ has obtained the Lady Gaga music video that was SCRAPPED … reportedly because she feared blow back since her co-star was once on trial for kiddie porn and her director is in a swirl of controversy over allegedly sexually assaulting or harassing his models.
Gaga’s music video for the song, “Do What U Want”, was officially put on ice because of vague problems including time constraints and betrayal. The NY Post now reports … sources claim Gaga was in the dark over claims that famed director Terry Richardson sexually assaulted or harassed models — claims that have now surfaced because the models have spoken out. The Post says the models’ allegations have shaken Gaga’s people and triggered her change of heart over releasing the video.
The video is graphic — you see Gaga laying in a hospital bed and R. Kelly plays the doctor. He reaches under her sheet, she moans, and he responds, “Sounds like that medicine’s starting to kick in.” Then Gaga passes out and a party starts on top of her body.
Richardson put himself in the video too — he’s seen snapping pics of naked Gaga while she’s writhing in newspapers and touching herself.
Terry Richardson has vehemently denied doing anything inappropriate with his models.”
It’s too bad the song never got an official video treatment for the viewing public since it is probably one of the best Christina Aguilera Lady Gaga songs of recent times, but to be honest this video looks cheap, utter crap! So maybe it was a blessing in disguise this version was never released but why not give the song its justice and film a second video?!
No use crying over spilled milk now I guess. Check out the clips from the unreleased version…
Calling all Kylie fans!!! A new track titled “Waiting 4 The Sun” which is apparently a demo from her Kiss Me Once sessions has just leaked! Before you get your hopes up… It’s not the typical dance-pop ditty we’re accustomed to hearing from the “I Was Gonna Cancel” crooner! But it’s a very solid ballad that I’m shocked didn’t make the cut… Make me wonder what other gems were left on the cutting room floor!? Check it out…
The problem with Ariana Grande’s big summer hit “Problem” is that it’s a HUGE pop record at the moment with no decent dance remixes in sight to support the number in the clubs. That is until now!!! The always reliable Wayne G and his partner in crime Andy Allder have made-over Ariana’s and given it a perfect throwback house vibe that drops into a fun little hip-hop break for Iggy’s rap. The tempo of the original version of the song is in that oh-so-annoying ‘un-remixable’ zone which is why we have yet to hear a strong remix for the song… Bravo to Wayne and Andy for proving that theory wrong with their creative and solid production!
CALLING ALL MADONNA FANS!! This is a new mashup of her dance hit “Music” that you NEED TO HEAR!
Besides the fact that it’s an amazing mashup that gives the song a current EDM reboot! It also consists of never before heard lyrics sung by Madonna that mysteriously surfaced out of nowhere giving the song an even more so “new school” twist! AH-MAZING!!
Major props to Bit Error for producing such an amazing mashup and breathing new life into one of my favorite Madonna songs! What are you waiting for?!! Play & download the mix!!
Today famed producer William Orbit posted an unreleased Ferry Corsten remix of a fan favorite MDNA track “Falling Free” on his SoundCloud account! The song in it’s original form never really appealed to me for some reason… Sure it was pretty but so was “Masterpiece” which I thought was a far superior ballad. This new EDM update, however… THIS IS HOT! This may just be a perfect little window looking into what we can expect from her collaboration with Avicii! Check it out…
Madonna – Falling Free (Ferry Corsten Remix):
90′s pop singer Amy Grant is gearing up to make a comeback but to an unexpected audience! Amy is currently prepping to release a remix album featuring amped up remix treatments of some of her greatest hits from back in the day!
So far here’s what we know about the project;
- Dave Aude has remixed her mega-hit “Baby Baby”
- Tony Moran has remixed “Stay For Awhile”
- Mark Picchiotti has remixed “Better Than A Hallelujah”
- Guy Scheiman has remixed “You’re Not Alone”
I’m really curious as to what other tracks make it on the remix album (crossing fingers for a “I Will Remember You” rework) and looking forward to hearing what Amy sounds like in a 2014 club environment! In the mean time, here’s a sneak peek of the Guy Scheiman remix of “You’re Not Alone“…
PS… The album is currently set for an Aug. 19th release date!
Alright little lambs, here’s a nice little throwback Thursday treat for ya!! Well we’re not really going too far back, but today a previously unreleased official remix of Mariah Carey’s single “#Beautiful” has surfaced and it’s actually better than the remixes that were originally released to promote the track! The scrapped production comes to us from EDM duo Cazzette and quite frankly shats all over the released mixes. Take a listen…
Not only have I finally come across a great remix of Pharrell’s feel good anthem “Happy” this morning but it also comes with an accompanying remix video helmed by the very talented JNX! Press play and get your “Happy” on for the weekend…
So when I first heard that the Bravo promo song of last summerMadonna’s MDNA album track “Superstar” was remixed by Bimbo Jones, I thought it would be a perfect union!! Unfortunately the track was scrapped as an official singe and the remix never saw the light of day… That is until now! Bimbo Jones have shared a hefty clip of their take on the Martin Solveig produced Madonna number on their official Youtube channel! It’s definitely a more mellow production than I expected from them so I’m not as excited about it as I was the idea of it but I also don’t hate it… It’s “cute”! Take a listen…
And I’m back to Celine Dion not registering on my radar once again after hearing the Sia demo version of her new single “Loved Me Back To Life” which is far more superior than Celine’s (good but not quite as epic as Sia’s) version. The problem is while Celine definitely has the chops to deliver, the song was obviously crafted for Sia’s personal sound. (You know, since she wrote the track and all…) I’m just hoping the Sia has saved some of these pop gems that she’s hanging out to other artists for her own album!
Sia – Loved Me Back To Life:
So just a few days after Lady Gaga’s new single “Applause” leaked early online, sbecomeone also took the liberty of leaking the Cher and Gaga duet titled “The Greatest Thing” that was recorded for Cher’s forthcoming album. The song is pretty decent in an uber-cheesy kinda way and I’m definitely liking it better than “Applause” which is just ok. Unfortunately, this song will not be making it onto the album thanks to Gaga & RedOne who put a plug on it because Gaga doesn’t like her vocals in the track and won’t re-record it. According to Cher’s Twitter tirade, this isn’t the final version of the song either. Curious if the finished song will eventually make it’s way online as well. Take a listen and tell me how you feel about “The Greatest“…
So how cool is this? Someone the goes by the moniker Cr@zy4Mad*nna made an amazing black and white music video for a little a remix I did of Madonna’s “Love Spent” last year! He used the footage of her live performance of the song during her MDNA Tour as well as footage of other numbers and rehearsals to create this video montage which basically pays homage to the tour! I couldn’t be more grateful that he chose my remix for the soundtrack! Check it out and also follow Cr@zy4Mad*nnaFacebook & Youtube!
