New Music: Annie Lennox – I Put A Spell On You

by: Taj | September 16th, 2014 | 3 Comments »

Former Eurythmics vocalist Annie Lennox is gearing up to release a new album of cover songs titled Nostalgia and has just unveiled the first offering from the record, her rendition of the Nina Simone classic “I Put a Spell on You“. Annie’s vocals are as powerful and flawless as every on the new release (which should come as no surprise) but I’m really hoping she still has interest in giving her music the dance remix treatment because these vocals deserve to be blasted over the speakers in the club!! Take a listen…

by: Taj | September 15th, 2014 | 1 Comment »

After finding success with her massive summer hit “Hideaway,” Kiesza is finally ready to serve us a follow up offering and has just released her next single titled “No Enemiesz“. Following closely in the footsteps of “Hideaway” the new song also dips in the deep house pond but is a bit more energetic than it’s older sister. I’m in LOVE with this one after just first listen!!

Remix Treatment: Sam Smith – Stay With Me (eSQUIRE Deep House Remix)

by: Taj | September 13th, 2014 | 1 Comment »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last year, then you probably don’t need me to tell you that deep house has made a comeback this year in a major way! Songs like Oliver Heldens’Gecko,” and Kiesza’sHideaway” have revived the classic underground dance genre and thrust it into the mainstream limelight once again!

One artist in particular, Sam Smith, has really embraced the sound and released one of the most successful deep house crossovers this year with his collaboration with Disclosure titled “Latch“. Sam’s smooth soulful vocals lend themselves perfectly to this sound, so it’s no wonder why deep house producers are jumping all over any of his acapellas that find their online so that they can give him a deep house remix makeover! Take for example, eSQUIRE’s latest remix of Sam’sStay With Me“… Hands down THE BEST mix I’ve heard yet of the song! Take a listen and tell me if you’re feeling it as well…

by: Taj | September 13th, 2014 | 1 Comment »

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’sBreak 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!!!

Havana Brown is pulling out all the stops with an edgy new single and steamy music video titled “BaBing“! At first listen I loved the production of the song right off the bat but was a little concerned that Havana may be partaking in a  bit of Luciana swagger jacking… But then I discovered that Queen Luciana actually co-wrote the song and all was right in the world again! Check it out…

New Music: Jennifer Lopez Ft. Iggy Azalea – Booty

by: Taj | August 26th, 2014 | No Comments »

Jennifer Lopez is determined to nab herself a hit off of her new album which has received a luke-warm response since it was released, so the Latina diva has enlisted pop’s current “it-girl” Iggy Azalea to lend her a helping hand on her new single “Booty“. This was definitely one of the only standout tracks on her album so if she has any chance at scoring a hit, the combo of releasing this song with Iggy’s special guest feature might just do the trick!

Video Premiere: Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj – Bang Bang

by: Taj | August 26th, 2014 | No Comments »

Jessie J’s channels her inner Christina Aguilera for the “Bang Bang” music video (A.K.A. “Lady Marmalade 2.0“) as she struts her stuff in the streets accompanied by a gaggle of female dancers a-la Christina’sCan’t Hold Us Down“. Usually I would be bothered by such blatant swag jagging but I actually love this song and the video doesn’t bother me. Why wouldn’t these hot new pop vixens try to replicate the flawless formula of “Lady Marmalade“?! Gotta hand it to them, they did a pretty amazing job! Check it out…
