[The Newest of NEW EDM] BRAND NEW from Alesso, Dirty South, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold, and MORE!

ImageImage
Alright boys and girls…I think it’s about time for a new post again. Today I’m bringing the ripest EDM I can possibly find. You know when a DJ yells, “Everyone get your phones out for a world premiere!” or “Who’s ready for some new shit!?”, well these are those songs. Some premiered at EDC New York and some at Las Vegas.

There’s some sick collaborations that have been going on recently too! Fedde Le Grand and Nicky Romero premiered a collab. on a new single called ‘Sparks’, and Alesso and Dirty South finally released their collab. single ‘City of Dreams’, which they had been planning forever. (if you follow the Alesso, Dirty South friendship you know what I’m talking about).

Axwell‘s new signing with Thomas Gold to Axtone records has been PHENOMENAL. This guy is seriously tearing shit up! His new mixtape is now available on Axtone records. He also just did a live stream from Beatport‘s office this week too! Check his new single below called ‘Fanfare’.

And of course we have the classic Laidback Luke! (did you know this guy is in his 40s already!). He released a new single with great vocals called ‘We Are the Stars’. This one’s a banger too!

And then you’ve got the young, but infamous Dutchman, Hardwell all the way from Holland! If you haven’t downloaded his EDC Las Vegas set yet….DO IT! Definitely one of the best sets at EDC. You can get it here at Beat My Day (along with pretty much all the EDC Las Vegas sets). During EDC Vegas he premiered this new single below called ‘Three Triangles’.

Fedde Le Grand & Nicky Romero – Sparks

Alesso & Dirty South – City of Dreams

[WALBRIDGE WEEKLY TUNES IS BACK!!] Run, Run, Run…to EDM

Image

For some reason the same music that we all love to jump and dance to also happens to be great music to run and workout to. It should actually be a pretty easy assumption considering the MASSIVE crescendos, extended build-ups, pounding bass lines, and sudden drops that are EDM (electronic dance music). It feels like the music is saying ‘Go.Go.Go. now SPRINT SPRINT SPRINT’ while keeping a consistent rhythm the whole time. There are some songs I listen to while running that literally fuel my energy and drive me to run at my peak.

Since it’s the summer season and people are running more outside I think it’s the perfect time to fill you in on some great tunes from my running playlist (warning: all electronic):

Roll the Dice – Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman

Here We Go – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

The Edge – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

These Russian guys are KILLING it lately!^^

Rage – Ralvero

The Veldt (Tommy Trash Mix) – DeadMau5

H8RS – Steve Angello vs. AN21 & Max Vangeli

The Wave (Thomas Gold Mix) – Miike Snow

Watch for this guy to take off later this year! ^^

1234 – Laidback Luke, Chuckie, Martin Solveig

Synergy – Michael Brun & Special Features

Metropolis – Nicky Romero & David Guetta

Walking Alone (Arty Remix) – Dirty South & Those Usual Suspects

Ladi Dadi (Tommy Trash Remix) – Steve Aoki ft. Wynter Gordon

EXCLUSIVE HARDWELL RELEASE:
Chasing the Sun (Hardwell Remix) – The Wanted

And now to finish off with some re-works from the infamous Swedish House Mafia sets. I always save the best for last:

2Night Together Hertz – Deniz Koyu vs. Axwell vs. Eric Prydz

I Love Bullet Promises – Michael Woods vs. Cassius vs. Nero

And now the mix you ALL should have! This one’s FIRE!!!:

Aerodynamic Quasar is Coming Home – Dirty South vs. Daft Punk vs. Hard Rock Sofa

Enjoy! Now go outside…hit the open pavement/grass/treadmill/whatever it is…and RUN!!

{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).

{INDIE/ALT} M83, Grouplove, Miike Snow, Naked and Famous, Young the Giant, and +

I’ve been away from the music blog for a while and instead of going all electro/house music on my first post back I thought I’d try my indie and alternative rock roots for a change. I have to say I have kind of forgotten about them for a while, but while I was on the road with the opportunity to listen to everything and anything I have re-established my love for this genre. Sirius-XM radio is truly God’s gift to traveling music nomads. Plus, these tunes fit the mood of the season more so anyways. So here are just a few of my favorite tunes from the road:

Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks

Atlas Genius – Trojans

Young the Giant – Cough Syrup

The Naked and Famous – Punching In a Dream

Grouplove – Tongue Tied

Miike Snow – Devil’s Work

M83 – Midnight City

Angus and Julia Stone – Big Jet Plane (Stern* Disco Edit)

{XV} The Kick (produced by DJ Tech-Neek)

A small player in the rap game, but he sure knows how to put a good rhyme together. XV is an MC that hails from Kansas and has come out with some good stuff in the past. Never really heard of him until I came across this song on the Hype Machine the other day. This song was produced by DJ Tech-Neek who took a track from Inception’s score called “Time” by Hans Zimmer to create the background beat. This is what I call “sleepy rap”.
