[HAPPY ‘MERICA DAY!] July.4th.#NEWNOISE.OVERLOAD: Dada Life, Arty, Major Lazer, Wale, Dirty South, Bingo Players, Bloody Beetroots, The xx, and MORE!

So what if the 4th is on a Wednesday this year! Doesn’t give you the right to deny our great country a day of drinking and celebration! You’ve got the beer, the American flag button down, the jorts, the fireworks, and the friends. Now let’s make your 4th of July week complete with some NEW TUNES! Today I bring you some classics with a new twist and some brand spankin new stuff, so listen up and GOD BLESS AMERICA!

The first set of wavelengths I bring you is the classic Kanye West record, American Boy ft. Estelle, re-booted by Kill the Noise. The second is a re-boot from LAZRtag. Not a bad way to start:

American Boy ft. Estelle (Kill the Noise Remix) – Kanye West

American Boy ft. Estelle (LAZRtag Remix) – Kanye West **(one of my favorites)

The next ones are from a guy named Kastra out of New Jersey. He’s doing some original mixes, mash-ups, and re-boots. The first is one of my favorites, One Illmerica, taking SHM’s ‘One’ and Wolfgang Gartner’s ‘Illmerica’ together. They work perfect together. Second is an original mix called ‘American Sex’….thought that was fitting for this post.

One Illmerica – Swedish House Mafia/Wolfgang Gartner (Kastra Mashup)

American Sex – Kastra & Nick James

{RAP/HIPHOP} Dear Professor – It’s The Dean’s List (GRADUATIN!!) + Digitalism

It’s been a crazy last couple weeks with graduation and such so I haven’t had time to make any new posts in a while. There’s been some good music coming out so far this early into summer and rumors of album releases, artist additions to festivals, and new singles have been flying all over the internet.

Here’s a song to all my college graduate peers by It’s The Dean’s List called “Dear Professor“. Congrats class of 2011!!

Also, for all that haven’t heard of Digitalism this is a great new single from them too below. They are described as German Punk Dance music. A really strange genre if you ask me, but it sure sounds amazing! They’ve had other great songs as well such as: “Idealistic“, “Pogo” (my all time favorite), “Taken Away“, try out “Pulse” is you’re really looking for some electronic masterpieces. They’re new hit single is call “2 Hearts“. Check some of them out:

2 Hearts



Taken Away (REMIXXX) – Rapid 10

The Pulse

{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):



Here some of his most popular songs too:
