[SO YOU THINK YOU CAN RAGE?] INSANE New Tracks, RAGER Festival Recaps Live Sets, and some RAGING Specials

Image

Who’s ready for some BASS LINE INSANITYFACE MELTING BUILD UPS – and BONE CRUSHING DROPS?? Who is ready to RAGE! (or jump). This post is all about the most insane things going on in the EDM world right now. As most of the songs I posted last time are just now being released, I think it’s time to share some of the NEWEST of NEW in EDM with you.

I’m also going to share with you some of the most insane summer festival raging moments that have been going on all over the world in Belgium (Tomorrowland), the UK (SHM Milton Keynes…no not the Olympics), and LA (Kaskade at the STAPLES center). Then I’m also going to give you a little preview of what’s still to come for the end of festival season and some Fall/Winter shows.

So get ready to enter the world of WALBRIDGE WEEKLY TUNES:

First up, ALESSO. This anthem was first played in April at his live sets and is set for official release on August 4th this week. One of my favorite tracks this summer and definitely one of those ‘feel-good’ songs. Alesso is on Sebastian Ingrosso‘s label, Refune Records. Vocals are by Matthew Koma. AMAZING!

Years – Alesso ft. Matthew Koma

Next up we have the same guys that brought you ‘Beating of My Heart‘. Although, it’s not a mix from Matisse & Sadko it is still insanely good. The vocals are from Dan Brown and really go well with this beat. This track is Next To You by M3OX.

Next to You – M3ox ft. Dan Brown

And here’s a special one you guys. ‘Beating of My Heart‘ meets Temper Trap‘s ‘Sweet Dispostion‘. Goes together PERFECT and has been played in sets by Dirty South and Swedish House Mafia members.

Beating of My Sweet Disposition – M3ox vs. The Temper Trap

Now let me bring you back to Alesso for a second. This is a bootleg he has been playing at festivals recently between Nicky Romero & David Guetta‘s ‘Metropolis‘ and Bingo PlayersL’Amour‘. Alesso most likely won’t release this, but other people have done re-boots for us 🙂

L’Amour Metropolis – Bingo Players vs. Nicky Romero & David Guetta

And now who’s ready for one of the most insane BASS lines out there right now! Now I bring you a Tom Staar remix, recently doing work with Deadmau5‘s label mau5trap records. This is his remix of My Digital Enemy & Rob Marmot‘s ‘African Drop‘ (no not African Child). It’s been played by Ingrosso, Axwell, Dirty South, Hardwell, and more. So check it!

African Drop (Tom Staar Remix) – My Digital Enemy & Rob Marmot

Next up we got a massive combination between a Hardwell and a Thomas Gold bootleg. One decided to do a bootleg with One Republic‘s ‘Apologize‘ going into Otto Knows‘ ‘Million Voices‘ and the other did a bootleg with Million Voices and Nari & Milani‘s ‘Atom‘. If you’re not confused yet, combine all of that together and now you have this new bootleg played by Hardwell at EDC Las Vegas.

Million Atoms to Apologize – Otto Knows vs. Nari & Milani vs. One Republic (Ryan Tedder)

And yet another released by Hardwell and Showtek at EDC Las Vegas. A BIG BIG ROOM rager!

How We Do – Hardwell & Showtek

Another combo/bootleg from Alesso. Here he combines his ‘Nillionaire‘, Swedish House Mafia‘s ‘Greyhound‘, and their ‘Antidote’ with Knife Party. Alesso played something similar to this at Tomorrowland 2012.

Greydote Nillionaire – SHM vs. Alesso vs. Knife Party

I’m sorry I just can’t get enough of Alesso‘s tracks. Here’s another one he just did with Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Swedish House Mafia is literally launching this newly 21 year old to the top of the world. This track is INSANITY!!! It’s called ‘Eclipse‘.

Eclipse – Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Alesso

If you watched Tomorrowland this past weekend then you know that NERVO is releasing tracks like CRAZY! They previewed 3 new songs at the festival and did a great job. Check out the Pixel Cheese remix of their anthem ‘You’re Gonna Love Again‘.

You’re Gonna Love Again (Pixel Cheese Remix) – NERVO

Get that DIRTY DUTCH from DJ Chuckie! Here’s his EDC remix of Antidote. Warning: CRAZY BASS!

Antidote (Chuckie’s EDC Mix) – Swedish House Mafia

And to finish off I have to post something that I already posted before, which I hate doing, but this track is by far the most unreal EDM track out there right now. It’s a killer at every festival, set, concert, and club. Brought to you by no other than Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes with ‘Here We Go‘ on Axwell‘s Axtone label.

Here We Go – Hard Rock Sofa & Swanky Tunes

Alright so I know I promised some festival updates, recaps, and previews; but I’ve been writing this for almost 2 hours so I’m signing off for now. But I promise I’ll get to all that later this week. There’s tons to see from our favorite DJs!! So for now enjoy the new tunes. Rage to them, run to them, drive to them, or just listen to them, but most of all enjoy them. RAGE ON!

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

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)

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

[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):
