[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.

Keep it real kids and enjoy the tunes and this holiday week!!!

{HOUSE} Arty – Around the World

I stumbled upon this guy just googling along and checking out different blogs yesterday. He’s beat is a true house sound. He is signed to label “Anjunabeats“, the same label that has DJs Above & Beyond signed. Besides them the label does not really have any big name artists. I have a funny feeling that this young guy Arty is about to blow up soon. Did I mention he looks like he’s 12. Swedish House Mafia played this song in their set at EDC about 2 weeks ago. General rule of thumb is: if those 3 like it, it’s going somewhere. (Also, ran to the song this morning…great song to run to.) I would try to leave you one to download, but it was really hard to find a copy online; meaning they’re probly trying really hard to keep this from leaking with getting paid. (but…if you wanna download just google the name and artist of the song and “zippyshare” next to it. Or buy it on iTunes. Enjoy:

Arty – Around the World

{HOUSE} Hardwell – Encoded

He’s only 23 years old and the new kid on block in the dance music industry. He’s getting support from Tiesto and Guetta and after producing a bootleg of Steve Angello‘s song “Show Me Love” and Laidback Luke‘s “Be” in 2010 that became one of the biggest dance music hits that year….he’s quickly rising to fame. If you’ve seen his name recently you’ve probably seen it as “ft. Hardwell” or “remixed by Hardwell”. Over the last year he has done a variety of remixes of songs by Armin Van Buuren, Bob Sinclair, Sharam, Fedde Le Grand, Tiesto, and Steve Angello. His style is similar to Swedish House trio and somewhat close to also rookie, Nicky Romero.

AND NOW HIS FIRST HIT SINGLE!! – Ultra Records
Hardwell – Encoded (Original Mix)

Here are some of the mixes he’s done in the past as well:

{HOUSE} Nicky Romero – It’s Me Bitches

Nicky Romero an artist signed to Spinnin’Records is new to the House/Electronic scene, but the songs he has out are phenomenal! His huge hit “Solar” is a real club banger right now. This year he did get to play at Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Check out his website for more info.

He has mixed songs by Usher, Flo Rida, Tiesto, Taio Cruz, and many more!

The main point is I wanted to share some of his songs with all of you! So here are a few of my favorites:

{HOUSE} Swedish House Mafia Recap + More

Every time you see a picture of these 3 they always look like the happiest people in the world. Well….they should be! Swedish House Mafia hit the electronic music scene hard back in 2009, but before they joined forces each one of them was making incredible music. In fact, they still make amazing music when they are apart. After going to the Masquerade Motel in Miami during Ultra Weekend, I can definitely claim that the majority of the songs they play live are not just Swedish House songs, but more so their individual songs. The funny thing is, these songs are actually better (at least I think so).

Today the trio announced on their Facebook page through a secret code that they will be playing at the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas!!! (very jealous I can’t go). And tomorrow they will be releasing their new single (bound to be this summer’s anthem) “Save the World Tonight”. Check out some of each of their hit songs this past year below and links to their tour pages:

Open Your Eyes – Steve Angello/Alex Metric

Sweet Disposition – Temper Trap/Axwell/Dirty South

Meich Clocks – Sebastian Ingrosso/Dirty South
