zee

Zee is a South Korean producer based out of Seoul. Travelled back in time to 2011 to dust off this Foster The People modern rock radio staple.

Searching for a Whitney Houston remix of “How Will I Know” for a wedding I am DJing. This wasn’t what the bride wanted…but I dug it. We Win Gracie remix.

The bride was looking for “How Will I Know” (Pursuit of Happiness remix)…my google-fu must be weak, I can’t find it. Do you know what she is talking about? Leave me a comment below please and thank you.

Happy Victoria Day to all you Canadian blog readers!

Kanye

Joel Almand is Almond. If you hit his website, the man from Buffalo, New York seems to like the stages set up in sunny places. I can dig it.

He sent over his spin on The Chainsmokers second original, Kanye. You’ll remember their first, the Top 40 radio infection “#SELFIE.” That song sounded like a Las Vegas style fist pumper with the cross-fit hammer heavy 2013 lyrical theme. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t dropped it more than once into my set. Now a song called “Kanye?” For real.

The guys in The Chainsmokers created a very uplifting power party rocker using Kanye as a metaphor for “not giving a fuck.”

From The Chainsmokers’ soundcloud: “This is real, this isn’t about love or partying or carpe diem shit, the same way we always hear it, this is some real life every day real world way to convey an important message…

As Kanye said, ‘ I refuse to accept other people’s ideas of happiness for me. As if there’s a ‘one size fits all’ standard for happiness.'”

Enter the Almond.

Almond brightens up the original and keeps the focus on a pounding party rocking house beat. It doesn’t genre hop like the original. All the same, the original nut of the song remains and that strong vocal hook.

prettyflyvintage
Massive club banger remix of the Offspring modern rock hit “Pretty Fly (for a white guy).”

Matt Zanardo takes us all back to high-school. (Well, takes me back to that awkward time after high school but before I had found any direction in life.) The song has a big Las Vegas style of electro houseness to it.

Before I take off for the weekend…I’ll leave you with a clip from my radio show. The Morning Zone was beeking off about Mexican food while I was driving in to boxing for my morning workout. Jason implied that Mexican food makes you fart…. but it doesn’t make me gassy…huh. I better get some experts on the show to ask them about Mexican Food.

Happy Friday! Go with yourself.

tropical Dragons
Norwegian producer Matoma puts a sparkly tropical polish on the alternative anthem “It’s Time” from arena filling Imagine Dragons.

I personally enjoy the tropical chill trend right now…so I could keep riding this sonic wave for a bit.

The song is remarkable for me because it had me stop my work to look back at what I was listening to. And I love when that happens.

Bleachers remix
Big sounding remix of Bleachers “I Wanna Get Better.”  Vince Clarke of Depche Mode fame synthses it right out.  He has created bouncy head bopping dance cut that keeps many of the original cut’s core elements.  But I am also hearing industrial beats and sounds.

Lorde-Royals-wild-boyz-remix-download
Lorde’s “Royals” is a Much Mega Hit right now.  The 16-year-old from New Zealand is on the cover Billboard Magazine and her album Pure Heroine is out on September 30th.

It’s Friday! So let’s lay down a remix from Wild Boyz (free download if you “like” their facebook page).  The band adds some “dub-step breakdowns.”  For the most part I dig this mix except the weird chipmunk moments.

Go with yourself.
