New “it” couple, Zedd & Selena Gomez have just unleashed the product of their blooming romance… A hot EDM banger called “I Want You To Know“! I’ve been a longtime fan of both Selena and Zedd so this is a no-brainer… I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Check it out… And even if I didn’t, I would still support it out of sheer gratitude that Zedd is keeping Mrs. Gomez far away from Justin Bieber. Do I really need any other reason??
Stefani Germanotta took the stage at the 2015 Oscars and literally stole the entire show with her The Sound Of Musictribute medley. Hats off to an amazing performance. Here’s hoping that she lays off the gimmicks a little and gets back to using that amazing voice to put out some solid pop records once again. (Her recent recording studio stint with longtime production collaborator RedOne suggest she may just be doing just that!)
In this day and age, it seems that we have to turn to the bootlegs for all the amazing remixes for pop artists! This Spin Sista remix of Meghan Trainor “Lips Are Moving” is a perfect example of that! It’s a little bit of 90′s house, a little bit of break-beat and a whole lotta HOTNESS!! Get into it…
After her debut single “Heartbeat Song” failed to make an impact with listeners, Kelly Clarkson has quickly moved on to a sure-fire Sia penned hit titled “Invincible“. This mid-tempo ballad is the embodiment of pop-perfection and should do the trick to get Kelly back on top! Check it out…
Madonna has handpicked her next single off of her forthcoming Rebel Heart album and has chosen a ballad for her second go! “Ghosttown” has been a fan-favorite since its release so she made a lot of people happy with this choice for follow-up single… Personally I would have preferred another upbeat number before she turned to a ballad (“Hold Tight” being my first choice) but I definitely love “Ghosttown” so I won’t complain. M also has long-time collaborator Jonas Akerlund lined up to produce the video, so it’s safe to say we can expect an epic visual to accompany the release! Are you excited for Madonna’s next single choice?
The just released new remix for Giorgio Moroder & Kylie Minogue’s single “Right Here, Right Now” is a little slice of heaven… 7th Heaven that is! Take a listen to the new dance version that will be dominating the dance floors!
Just when my Taylor Swift hater status was at an all-time high, Mrs. goodie little two shoes just had to release a new song and music music video that I absolutely LOVE!! Her new single “Style” is by far the best track off of her latest effort and the video is absolute perfection! Check it out…
I don’t know how in the world I missed the release of this video last month, but I just had to post Ivy Levan’s visual for her hot little single titled “Biscuit“. I love the song, I’ve been playing the Dave Aude remix since it was released… But the video… SO DAMN HOT!! I think I need to follow this pop-vixen, Ivy, a little more closely from here on out! My attention has officially been piqued!
I am so happy & flattered that Cr@zy4Madonna has created an amazing remix video to my mashup remix of Madonna’s “Living For Love“. Since we don’t have an official video to set it to just yet, he made a very clever montage video that tries to synch clips of some of M’s most iconic videos with the lyrics of her new song. It’s genius!!!! Thank you Cr@zy4Madonna for putting all of your hard work and creative juices into this!
Giorgio Moroder has just unleashed the music video for his sexy new song “Right Here, Right Now” which features the sultry vocals of Kylie Minogue! The visual effects suit the song very and Kylie looks amazing of course! Check it out…
Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” front woman Jess Glynne has just debuted her brand new solo single “Hold My Hand” and it’s pretty much amazing!! I didn’t know if she would ever be able to top her smash hit “Rather Be” but this new one is crack addictive!!! Take a hit and get hooked!
Hey bud... How've you been. So I did a little mash that I just released today and has been getting a lot of attention.
For your consideration: http://www.mixcloud.com/djtaj/madonna-living-for-love-taj-x-jrmx-mashup/
3 new official versions have been released. So far my favorite out of all the mixes is the new Mike Rizzo Private Pass mix which transforms the song into a gorgeous ballad! Are you feeling any of these new ones?
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…

PS… In case you’re wondering, yes it’s pretty much Madonna month here on the blog. lol
I feel like I should give a history lesson to some of my readers who might not know who Giorgio Moroder. Cliff Notes version… He’s the grandfather of synth pop and some of the biggest disco in the history of music!
So Giorgio is gearing up to release a new album full of brand spankin’ new productions which will feature vocal cameos from some of todays hottest artists such as Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX. “Right Here, Right Now” is the name of the first single from the highly anticipated project and just dropped today! WARNING!! The funk laced new single features Kylie Minogue as the leading lady and will instantly be stuck in your head after just one listen! Welcome back Mr. Moroder!! Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album!
So it’s been a few weeks since Madonna has released her first single “Living For Love” after she was forced to drop something ASAP since her whole freakin’ album leaked in demo form. As I mentioned on in my review, this song would not have been my choice for first single… But thanks to some of the remixes popping up, I’m getting a little more behind this uplifting number! Here are a few I think are worth listening to!
First I wanted to start with the first “official” remix brought to us by Djemba Djemba. To be honest, I am not very impressed of this “hand picked” official remix which is pretty true to the original but I wanted to post it anyway so we can compare it to some of the bootlegs that I’m enjoying.
The first one I want to post for you guys (which I think is my favorite) was produced by Argonaut & Jason Conti. A lot like the Djemba Djemba remix, this one starts off staying true to the original but then veers paths to take us down a quite different and (even deeper) house path as compared to the first remix.
Finally, the last remix I wanted to share is a fun mashup produced by DJ MichaelAngelo using the Papercha$er remix instrumental for his mix of Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go“. I know, I know… That song needs to be locked up in a chest and thrown to the bottom of the ocean but don’t worry!! You would never know the instrumental belonged to a remix version of that song had you not been a fan in the first place! And it works beautifully with “Living For Love“!
Take a listen to these mixes and “sound off” in the comments if you’re feeling any of them… Or feel free to post about a mix you’ve come across that you are particularly feeling!
