[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.

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

Alesso – Clash

Wolfgang Gartner – Flexx

Thomas Gold – Fanfare (Preview)

Laidback Luke – We Are the Stars (feat. Martel)

Hardwell – Three Triangles

Thank You – Third Party feat. Loleatta Holloway

Enjoy!! My next blog post will be going back to some Alt Rock with a special on Gotye and guest blogger LAURIE BYRNE!

{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:
