French duo AIR are set to release their seventh studio album titled Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon) in 2012! Pretty excited since, although I enjoyed their most recent album Love 2, I’m pretty sure it’s time to venture into a new sound. Which they seem to be on the same page about, considering they got Victoria Legrand of Beach House to get her beautifully deep voice in on AIR’s intergalactic production. It’s cool that both of their sounds are distinct. The pianos scream Beach House and then AIR goes on and throws in those space noises that they usually use. You’ll know what I’m talking about. The album is set to release February 6th, 2012…the year of ze end of ze world! Or the year of nothing happening and everyone shutting the f*ck up about it. Anyway here’s what Nicolas Godin said of the album:

“Projects like this refresh our brain. Making your own albums all the time is too narrow-minded. At some point you write the same song. So you need new blood all the time. We are like vampires.”

For sure bro. Awesome track! You can pick up the low quality version I found online below.

AIR – Seven Stars ft. Victoria Legrand

Got a video of Skrillex at HARD Haunted mansion doing a “Levels” mashup (see below) at HARD Haunted mansion, but it looks like that wasn’t enough for him. He took the lighthearted, feel-good jam and converted it to a twisted out dub banger with another level of grime. Wasn’t expecting this to come out so soon, but I’m not one to complain. The combination is reminiscent of how I felt when I heard Kaskade remixed “Scary Monsters And Nice Sprits.” I could get used to this! Keepers on keepers this week.

After coining the genre “Nu Jump Up” and defining what can be considered legitimate moombahton, Dillon Francis is back to his roots with this one. Quality dub coming straight off his Euro tour. I got a test in 4 hours, and I should be sleeping, but I couldn’t hold off on letting you guys get a taste of this. It’s crazy how established Dillon’s gotten in such a short amount of time and how clear the heights he can reach are. Last person I know that’s got this much all around love so quick is Skrillex, and Dillon’s following in his footsteps quicker than I expected. Can’t wait til this is released!

BONUS FRANCIS!

Steve Aoki, Rivers Cuomo – Earthquakey People (Dillon Francis Remix)

This one came out a bit ago, but I didn’t have the chance to grab the final version when it came out. Dillon said this is his favorite remix that he’s done, while I think it’s arguably his best. Definitely worth saving.

Got probably the most exciting press email I’ve ever gotten yesterday. Anyone who’s been following our recent posts on these guys knows about our unconditional love for Knife Party. I got to have a taste test of the two unreleased tracks, ‘Destroy Them With Lazers’ and ‘Fire Hive,’ and all I can say is that surpassed any and all high expectations I had already set. Pretty sure these guys have found their niche. Check out the teaser, along with some fun facts and tracks they’ve previously released!

One more thing! Go vote for them on Wobbleland’s FaceBook so they bring them to Nor Cal in the Spring! Last year Wobbleland had Skrillex, Nero, Datsik, and 12th Planet and was probably the most fun dubstep show I have EVER been to. GO! GO!

There’s something about the idea of D-Day that always stuck with me. Just being in those boats to shore. Thinking about how your whole life, all you accomplishments, your failures have been built up to that moment. Thinking about how everything could come to an end before you even have a chance to do anything about it. Scary contemplation…Anyway yeah, this song instantly made me think of that picture (above) I had saved. It’s not too farfetched once you listen. I can hear the guy at the hatch as they hit the sand: “KICK OUT THE EPIC MOTHER F*CKER!” And all hell breaks loose. Well today D-Day is Dada Day! The epic motherf*ckers have done it yet again.

Happy Sunday everyone! Just content on being alive after back to back nights with Porter Robinson at Sutra in OC and Boys Noize at the Music Box in LA. Bummed I had to miss Porter last night with The M Machine, but his show at Sutra made up for it in more ways than one. Did anyone go to the Music Box last night? How was it?? Boys Noize was sold out on Friday, but there was still a lot of room to party/dance. Though, I have a feeling it was a bit crazier last night considering Porter’s recent boosts.

ALSO! I used to think you can only dream about news like this. Black Keys announce a North American tour that is being backed up by opening sets from ARCTIC MONKEYS!! That’s the kind of rock revival tour this country needs. Every stop is going to be at an arena. Kinda bums me out that I never got to see Black Keys or Arctic Monkeys at a more intimate venue. I doubt I’ll get that opportunity, but I’ll keep dreaming! Shit part is, all the shows out are on the east coast. WHY! I’ve never been to NY though. Almost willing to fly there for this. Anyhow, dates are below. Enjoy #72!

March 2 – Cincinnati, OH @ U.S. Bank Arena


March 3 – Detroit, MI @ Joe Louis Arena
March 4 – Columbus, OH @ Jerome Schottenstein Center


March 6 – Portland, ME @ Cumberland Co. Civic Center
March 7 – Boston, MA @ TD Garden
March 9 – Washington, DC @ Verizon Center
March 10 – Philadelphia, PA @ Wells Fargo Center
March 12 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
March 13 – Montreal, QC @ Bell Centre
March 14 – Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre
March 16 – Indianapolis, IN @ Conesco Fieldhouse
March 18 – Grand Rapids, MI @ Van Andel Arena
March 19 – Chicago, IL @ United Center
March 20 – Cleveland, OH @ Quicken Loans Arena
March 23 – Norfolk, VA @ Constant Convocation Center

The thought of how much is going on in the next week and how much work I have to do is overwhelming…almost to the point of wanting to do nothing. You know that feeling? Naturally I’ve dove into several mixes to try and get me through it. One that’s coming out next week, one that I probably won’t say unless you ask, and another one I’m about to share. I’ve always trusted Treasure Fingers mixes, which makes me wonder way I waited so long to listen to his EU Tour Nov 2011 Mix? To be honest I don’t think this could have came at a better time. If you’ve been keeping up with our disco house posts as of late, this is going to be a treat. The first five seconds sets the tone for the entire ride, and it just gets better. I’m jealous as f*ck +Jangbar got to meet the mastermind and score this interview for us.

This mix is downloadable! Just hit the down arrow on the player. If you like this stuff, let us know on our FaceBook Page. There’s much more where this came from! I just don’t want to overwhelm you…I know how it is. haha

BONUS FINGERS

Treasure Fingers – Take My Hand
Classixx – I’ll Get You (Treasure Fingers Remix)
Treasure Fingers – Lift Me (Original Mix)
N.A.S.A. – Gifted (Treasure Fingers Remix) Delightful Choice!
