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

by: Taj | February 20th, 2015 | No Comments »

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…

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!!

MULTIPLE VERSIONS!! 

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 Hearthas.at 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 | 1 Comment »

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 | 1 Comment »

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…

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!

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

by: Taj | February 9th, 2015 | 1 Comment »

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!

Video Premiere: Madonna – Living For Love

by: Taj | February 5th, 2015 | 2 Comments »

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 | No Comments »

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!

I am so happy & flattered that Cr@zy4Madonna has created an amazing remix video to my mashup remix of Madonna’sLiving 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!

New Music: Deborah Cox – Kinda Miss You

by: Taj | January 29th, 2015 | 3 Comments »

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)

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…
