Party people. It’s always good to be back here with these playlists. I was worried for a second that it’d be harder to make these lists as the weeks went by, wrong. Every time I’m shuffling through my library, I stumble upon another song or artist I feel you guys should be listening to. I hope you guys are using these lists to help guide you in the direction of finding new music. I’m just trying to make it easier. Use Last.fm to help you find related music and just go from there. Last.fm is probably the best thing that’s ever happened to me music-wise. When you sign up for it, it gives you this program that goes through your iTunes and sees what and how much of what you’ve been listening to and gives you recommendations depending on that. Plus, the artist bios and the most popular song lists are very helpful. Anyway, the list is all ready for you below. Try and leave a comment of your thoughts on the list if you can. I love hearing that you guys are enjoying these.
Gifted – N.A.S.A.
N.A.S.A. (North America South America) is a DJ duo who have collaborations of songs with artists from a wide spectrum of musical backgrounds. This song in particular features Kanye West, Santigold and Lykke Li. “Gifted” is another one of those songs that has numerous remixes, many of which that rival the original. The first time I ever heard it was the Treasure Fingers remix. Leave it to Treasure Fingers and The Twelves to take a choice song and turn it into a disco’d out party. His remix is definitely my favorite rendition of the original. I just heard the Masuka remix the other night. Instant hit for any bass head. As I’ve said before, I’m really particular about dubstep. It either hits home or is garbage, to me. This song is definitely one of the better dubstep remixes that I’ve heard. Ya’ll mutha fuckas know who dis is.
Artist: Fake Blood
Fake Blood is one of those DJs who constantly delivers. “Mars” put him on the map last year as it made its way onto any experienced DJs set. His songs always hit hard as fuck, and he kills it live. I saw him at HARD 13 in March with Jack Beats and Boy 8 Bit. He also released an essential mix that ended up being the fifth best of the year. Make sure to look him up and remember his songs, because you can bet you’ll be hearing them at an electronic show. He’s going to be at HARD Haunted Mansion on Saturday. So, if you DO go that day, be sure to see him. You won’t be disappointed.
If you’ve been following these lists, you probably remember me talking about one of my favorite bands that broke up called The Colour. I don’t want to get into how sad I am, still, that they broke up, so I won’t. Of their band members, the lead singer Wyatt Hull went to this band, Cheetahsaurus. It’s nice to hear his voice, because it was one of the best parts of The Colour, but it’s definitely not the same. These guys still have a lot of soul, and the song is pretty catchy. As far as I know, they’ve only released one album that was decent at best. The remaining members of The Colour went to a different band, that seems to be doing better, called We Barbarians. Both are still great indie rock bands, but they’ll never really compare to The Colour.
