Image

Who’s ready for some BASS LINE INSANITYFACE MELTING BUILD UPS – and BONE CRUSHING DROPS?? Who is ready to RAGE! (or jump). This post is all about the most insane things going on in the EDM world right now. As most of the songs I posted last time are just now being released, I think it’s time to share some of the NEWEST of NEW in EDM with you.

I’m also going to share with you some of the most insane summer festival raging moments that have been going on all over the world in Belgium (Tomorrowland), the UK (SHM Milton Keynes…no not the Olympics), and LA (Kaskade at the STAPLES center). Then I’m also going to give you a little preview of what’s still to come for the end of festival season and some Fall/Winter shows.

So get ready to enter the world of WALBRIDGE WEEKLY TUNES:

First up, ALESSO. This anthem was first played in April at his live sets and is set for official release on August 4th this week. One of my favorite tracks this summer and definitely one of those ‘feel-good’ songs. Alesso is on Sebastian Ingrosso‘s label, Refune Records. Vocals are by Matthew Koma. AMAZING!

Years – Alesso ft. Matthew Koma

Next up we have the same guys that brought you ‘Beating of My Heart‘. Although, it’s not a mix from Matisse & Sadko it is still insanely good. The vocals are from Dan Brown and really go well with this beat. This track is Next To You by M3OX.

Next to You – M3ox ft. Dan Brown

And here’s a special one you guys. ‘Beating of My Heart‘ meets Temper Trap‘s ‘Sweet Dispostion‘. Goes together PERFECT and has been played in sets by Dirty South and Swedish House Mafia members.

Beating of My Sweet Disposition – M3ox vs. The Temper Trap

Now let me bring you back to Alesso for a second. This is a bootleg he has been playing at festivals recently between Nicky Romero & David Guetta‘s ‘Metropolis‘ and Bingo PlayersL’Amour‘. Alesso most likely won’t release this, but other people have done re-boots for us 🙂

L’Amour Metropolis – Bingo Players vs. Nicky Romero & David Guetta

And now who’s ready for one of the most insane BASS lines out there right now! Now I bring you a Tom Staar remix, recently doing work with Deadmau5‘s label mau5trap records. This is his remix of My Digital Enemy & Rob Marmot‘s ‘African Drop‘ (no not African Child). It’s been played by Ingrosso, Axwell, Dirty South, Hardwell, and more. So check it!

African Drop (Tom Staar Remix) – My Digital Enemy & Rob Marmot

Next up we got a massive combination between a Hardwell and a Thomas Gold bootleg. One decided to do a bootleg with One Republic‘s ‘Apologize‘ going into Otto Knows‘ ‘Million Voices‘ and the other did a bootleg with Million Voices and Nari & Milani‘s ‘Atom‘. If you’re not confused yet, combine all of that together and now you have this new bootleg played by Hardwell at EDC Las Vegas.

Million Atoms to Apologize – Otto Knows vs. Nari & Milani vs. One Republic (Ryan Tedder)

And yet another released by Hardwell and Showtek at EDC Las Vegas. A BIG BIG ROOM rager!

How We Do – Hardwell & Showtek

Another combo/bootleg from Alesso. Here he combines his ‘Nillionaire‘, Swedish House Mafia‘s ‘Greyhound‘, and their ‘Antidote’ with Knife Party. Alesso played something similar to this at Tomorrowland 2012.

Greydote Nillionaire – SHM vs. Alesso vs. Knife Party

I’m sorry I just can’t get enough of Alesso‘s tracks. Here’s another one he just did with Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Swedish House Mafia is literally launching this newly 21 year old to the top of the world. This track is INSANITY!!! It’s called ‘Eclipse‘.

Eclipse – Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Alesso

If you watched Tomorrowland this past weekend then you know that NERVO is releasing tracks like CRAZY! They previewed 3 new songs at the festival and did a great job. Check out the Pixel Cheese remix of their anthem ‘You’re Gonna Love Again‘.

You’re Gonna Love Again (Pixel Cheese Remix) – NERVO

Get that DIRTY DUTCH from DJ Chuckie! Here’s his EDC remix of Antidote. Warning: CRAZY BASS!

Antidote (Chuckie’s EDC Mix) – Swedish House Mafia

And to finish off I have to post something that I already posted before, which I hate doing, but this track is by far the most unreal EDM track out there right now. It’s a killer at every festival, set, concert, and club. Brought to you by no other than Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes with ‘Here We Go‘ on Axwell‘s Axtone label.

Here We Go – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

Alright so I know I promised some festival updates, recaps, and previews; but I’ve been writing this for almost 2 hours so I’m signing off for now. But I promise I’ll get to all that later this week. There’s tons to see from our favorite DJs!! So for now enjoy the new tunes. Rage to them, run to them, drive to them, or just listen to them, but most of all enjoy them. RAGE ON!

{SHMMSG} A Recap of Swedish House Mafia @ Madison Square Garden

How many of you wish you were at Madison Square Garden for this EPIC show? I DO! And so does every SHM fan in America. Too bad the tickets sold out in 9 minutes… Remember when Swedish House Mafia used to be small time? Remember when they made their big break at Ultra 3 years ago? Weird to think that it really hasn’t even been that long, but look at them now!!! The first electronic music show to EVER be played at MSG, and they did a damn good job.

Not only did they play at MSG, they made it a live stream for the whole world to see too! What artists do that?? Very, very few. Most artists (record companies) want your money, therefore you gotta pay for a ticket if you wanna see the show, but SHM and their label allow them to let the whole world see. It just goes to show that they are the real pioneers of this genre of music.

So recap: First, the set up was phenomenal! Most electronic shows are done in a big field, a tent, or a much smaller venue. (the point is that most are done on flat ground, not a stadium setting). The LED screens were set up great and the MASSIVE LED screen in the back made it seem like a huge act. It’s hard to make 3 guys behind a table act in a way that a band would at MSG. Tinie Tempah and John Martin (Miike Snow vocalist from Save the World) made guest appearances to perform for their songs. Axwell had the microphone the majority of the time and spoke to the crowd every once and while. Ingrosso did his signature “sit down drop”. And the 3 ended up standing on top of the turntables a couple times. Making the DJ trio seem just like a rock band up on stage.

Second, the set was spectacular. Each song quickly transitioned into the next, and kept the crowd moving constantly. There were some new ones like Antidote and their new single (rumored to be called ‘Inks’). Check out the set list below:

After the show the group finished up the night with an after show at the Roseland Ballroom.

It was truly a show for history and as I’m sure the attendees can attest…”something you just had to be there for”. Check out some Youtube videos and song clips below:

And on top of all of this…they’ve just sent out teasers via Facebook to their website: www.masquerademotel.com. Counting down to the announcement of ‘Masquerade Motel Miami 2012’. Mark my words…2012 will be a HUGE year for SHM and EDM (and so was 2011).

I mean come on look at that light show and fireworks, and parachuters with sparklers reallllyy. Check out this video…OFF THE CHAIN (Make sure you go to 4:15):

3. Swedish House Mafia has been playing a new mix of Coldplay‘s “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” at their shows. I am in love with this mix!!!

{HOUSE} SAVE THE WORLD TONIGHT – SHM (lollaplooza sneak peak)

Ladies and Gentlemen….drum roll please….!.!.!.!.!

It is finally here the SHM fresh new single, “Save the World Tonight”.

Ever since I saw these 3 debut this song at the Masquerade Motel in Miami I have been searching all over the internet for a leak of this song. Over the weekend Pete Tong debuted the first radio rip of the song on BBC Radio. The SHM trio has brought in Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow to collaborate on this one and it has turned out great. It doesn’t quite include the intense drops that SHM is known for, but what would you expect from a now mainstream hit DJ combo. However, I can guarantee you this, IT WILL BE THE HIT SINGLE OF THE SUMMER!!!

On another note….the LOLLAPALOOZA lineup came out tonight!! Need I say more. Just check out the lineup on their website. Headliners: Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Muse WTF!!!!!!!

Lollapalooza 2011 Lineup

This summer is going to be amazing!!

{LIVE MUSIC/FESTIVALS} Music Festivals 2011

Prepare for a summer of great music festivals. I thought Miami Music Week was enough, but there is way more to look forward. You have your typical Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Coachella (starting tomorrow), but this summer we have some new additions to the scene.

First, there is Electric Forest (the revamped version of the Rothbury Festival) held during the weekend of July 4th in Rothbury, MI. After Rothbury was canceled last year for lack of funding and interest, Insomniac Events has teamed up with Madison House to put on a 4 day festival in the middle of Sherwood Forest. Electric Forest promises a great line-up including artists like Tiesto, Laidback Luke, The Hood Internet, Pretty Lights, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Stephen Marley, Skrillex, Kaskade, Chiddy Bang, and of course The String Cheese Incident.

Second, the already existing Electric Daisy Carnival, started in Los Angeles, has expanded this year with festival dates in Orlando, Las Vegas, and Dallas. The festival is going on for 2 days in Orlando and Las Vegas. Swedish House Mafia actually just announced they will be playing at the EDC in Vegas.

And of course you have your Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza (which is having their 20th anniversary), Electric Zoo, and Sasquatch Festivals also. All are promising amazing lineups. Check out below some links to the festival pages and some special treats for all of you:

{DANCE/ELECTRONIC} UMEK – Jacksons Tampa, FL 04.9.11

This past Saturday I went to the Terrace at Jackson’s Bistro to see the one and only UMEK from Slovenia! They call this guy the techno monster of Europe. Didn’t know who he was at first, but I downloaded a couple of songs and headed to the club….

He was AMAZING!! A lot of people criticized him for his repetitive beats, but lets be real that’s what a lot of electronic music is. Oh yeah and the CO2 machines were clutch!!! Check out this video (first half is mainly all smoke, but it gets better):
