[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.

{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).

‘Rumored’ New Single “Inks” live from MSG

{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!!!!!!!

{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

Exclusive: Save the World Tonight
