New Music: Peter Rauhofer – Don’t You Forget About Me

by: Taj | May 7th, 2014

As many of you dance music fanatics probably already know, today is the anniversary of legendary DJ/producer Peter Rauhofer’s untimely passing. He was a huge force in the dance music community and left behind an impressive library of classic dance productions! Today we can one more gem to that roster thanks to his close friends and management who have just released a never before heard production – A remake of the Simple Minds 80′s hit “Don’t You Forget About Me“. This was the very last production that Peter completed right before his death and (until now) was only heard by some when he played it in a his sets a couple of times. It’s so exciting to hear a new production the signature Rauhofer sound… Make me hope there’s a couple more that might surface in the new future as well. Enjoy! :)

by: Taj | May 7th, 2013

Today the dance music world has lost a legend! Grammy award winning DJ/producer Peter Rauhofer lost his battle with brain cancer leaving behind a world of mourning fans. For avid fans such as myself, Peter will forever live on with the music legacy that he has left behind. His productions have been staples in my sets since I first started my career as a DJ and have inspired me through out that years to this very day. The long list of musical gems that he has left us with are an integral part of my musical DNA as they are for many other DJs across the globe. He was a one of a kind dance music legend that had his own distinct sound! With a heavy heart and tears in my eyes, I want to thank Peter (wherever you are now) for all of the essential contributions that you have brought to help shape the dance music world and I hope you are finally at peace… We love you Peter.

Mandatory Mashup: Rihanna vs Britney Spears – Beautiful Diamonds (DJ DigiMark Mashup)

by: Taj | January 16th, 2013

DJ DigiMark has just released another EPIC mashup that is hands-down one of my more favorite mashes that he’s put together! This one brings Rihanna’sDiamonds” and Britney Spears’ Femme Fatal album track “Drop Dead Beautiful” together into a perfect union! Mark uses the Peter Rauhofer remix of “Diamonds” as a backdrop for the mash and got very creative with the play on words in his production. You would almost swear that Brit and Ri-Ri where actually in the studio together singing back and forth from one another at the 1:45 mark of the song! Take a listen…

PS…. You can download this remix on DJ DigiMark’s official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/DJDigiMark/app_220150904689418

Remix Treatment: Rihanna – Hard (Peter Rauhofer Remix)

by: Taj | March 17th, 2010

Look out dancefloor… Peter Rauhofer has worked his magic on Rihanna’s single, “Hard“. I absolutely LOVE this new remix… Hands down my favorite of all the mixes that I’ve heard so far! Peter’s rework of the song is more of a vocal dub which I think works out very well for this track. (Most of the other house remixes either speed up Rihanna’s vocals way too fast or slow them down to the point that it just sounds awkward.) I love the synth work and I’m glad that Peter chose to play off of the riff from the original version of the song! He really took this one to a whole new level! Can’t wait to play it this weekend!!

I recently came across this “hella” psychedelic remix video that someone made to my maushup remix of No Doubt’sHella Good“. WOW!! What a flashback for me… I made this remix years ago!!! I used Peter Ruahofer’s dub version of H.O.G ft. Groovelines Got To Dance Discoas the instrumentation for this remix, which went on to be one of my most popular mashups that I’ve done to date! This video was created by Youtube user thedancetube … I recommend you check out his channel!

Remix Treatment: Lady Gaga – Bad Romance (Peter Rauhofer Anthem Remix)

by: Taj | December 30th, 2009

The first of Peter Rauhofer’sBad Romance” remixes has finally arrived and I have to say that the man has completely out did himself on this one! This mix should make her fans very happy!!! It’s an EPIC Gaga-palooza remix, clocking in at around 12:30!!! My favorite part of Peter’s Anthem remix is the gorgeous breakdown midway through the song. You can actually hear Lady G’s beautiful/haunting vocals clearly during the breakdown when they are stripped away from all the (over) production of the other versions. This remix is an absolute MASTERPIECE!!! And I believe that there’s still 2 more to come from Rauhofer!!!

Remix Treatment: Lady Gaga – Paparazzi (Peter Rauhofer Reconstruction Remix)

by: Taj | December 29th, 2009

While everyone is patiently awaiting the arrival of Peter Rauhofer’s remixes of Lady Gaga’sBad Romance,” I’ve stumbled upon this nice little Gaga/Rauhofer treasure. It’s Peter’s private (and unreleased) remix of “Paparazzi“. This was Gaga’s last US single off of her The Fame album before it morphed into The Fame Monster and was probably my favorite of all her original singles. Rauhofer did an amazing job as usual remixing this song into a dark and seductive club number… Which BTW, perfectly fits the song’s dark yet seductive commentary on fame. Check it…
