YOLO Mentions bring attention to special
songs featured in that week’s YOLO List. Get the latest list
here!

Wolfgang’s hotly anticipated album was finally released a week ago, and I had to let it marinate before I could put in my two cents. Wolfgang has been in the game for longer than people are led to believe, and he still remains as one of the most consistent producers and DJs out there. Almost two years in the making, this album’s release was not taken lightly in the slightest. Nowadays, with electronic albums as a whole consisting mainly of standout bangers, expectations were still set high for Weekend In America, and Wolfgang managed to meet and exceed them in more than one regard. The album may come off as a dabble into a more radio friendly, mainstream sound but stays true to Wolfgang’s creatively hard hitting production abilities. (more…)

While on a search for a downloadable MP3 of the Justice Remix of “The Golden Age” I posted a few days ago, I came out with more than fruitful results. Not only is the Danish duo of Asteroids Galaxy Tour set to release a new album at the end of January, but their first single is out AND they’re playing two shows in Los Angeles in a matter of weeks! More on their shows in a bit. The single “Major” is a sound for sore ears, as they say. The song doesn’t play any games. It instantly captures you with everything that is and will be Asteroids Galaxy Tour. The grooviest of trumpet intros sucks you into an Austin Powers era of shagadelic funk. Next thing you know you’re lost in a sea of all your lustful desires as Mette Lindberg graces the song with her edgy lyrics and oh so sexy, I-don’t-give-a-f*ck vocals. Mark your calendars! Out of Frequency is coming out January 31st! If you want to pick up so more tracks from these guys, make your way over to our previous post.

The Asteroids Galaxy Tour – Major

Oh! I guess you could say my search was succesful, but the mp3 is in low quality format. This will have to do for now.

Not toooo much new stuff coming through last week. Don’t know how much of it was me not noticing and how much of it was just me losing patience for what’s to come. Either way, I’m still happy with the list. Hope you guys have been keeping up with our facebook page, as far as the new photographer and show coverage we’ve been getting. It may be just me, but I’m excited as f*ck for the future in general! You should be too. Good things come with positive mindsets. It’s science…or I may just be insane. Enjoy #62!

It’s funny because the closer the release date of Justice’s sophomore album gets, the more I think about them. More so as a worry of how they can make something that will ever compare to the level of Cross, but also just about how much I miss their sound. I’ve also been thinking about their past remixes and how much they put into making them perfect. There aren’t many out there, and a lot of the ones that are out are fake, but I can say with confidence that this remix is theirs. You can’t fake the signature funky bass lines that Justice is always on top of. Their choice to remix one of my favorite tracks of 2011 just makes it that much better. Thank you music gods for making this happen for us!

Pretty much every remix that RAC releases becomes a momentous occasion of sorts. For this post, you’re getting two! With a perfect, almost consistently flawless, combination of indie dance vibes and modern electronic synths, they continue to make us all proud.

Gigamesh – When You’re Dancing (RAC Mix)

Their Gigamesh remix is undoubtedly my favorite of the two. The genre being labeled as “Space Disco” couldn’t be more fitting. With Gigamesh already having a reputation of funky disco deliverance, the choice to have RAC put their intergalactic touch on it was keen to say the least. Definitely another feel good jam to add to the seemingly endless RAC classics list.

Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks (Gigamesh Remix)

Givers – Meantime (RAC Mix)

What was going to be a one song post turned into me stumbling on this release from today! The way RAC uses Givers‘ singers Taylor Guarisco and Tiffany Lamson vocals in perfect harmony puts everything in its right place. You can’t help but let go of all things negative as the track runs through from start to finish. They said that although the track sounds simple, it was one of the hardest remixes they’ve ever done, taking almost 5 weeks to finish in its entirety. Needless to say, the extra effort pays off as RAC does it again.

RAC is going to release a new track when they get 10,000 fans and they’re barely 200 away! Do us and yourself a favor and go like their facebook page. If you haven’t had a chance to check out our interview with the brains behind the collective, click here. Cheers!

Dillon Francis @ SOLD OUT Key Club

Hello! Welcome back for another weekly dose of the good music that’s made it into my library as of late. It seems like everyone is trying to squeeze tracks into this very epic year for music, and there’s so much on its way! Jack Beats, Wolfgang Gartner, The Strange Boys, Duck Sauce, Justice…am I forgetting anything? 2011 continues to deliver. Also sorry for the lack of posts recently. We’re all working hard behind the scenes to get C+A+D moving to the next level of sorts. For instance, just added a new media specialist, Philip Mendoza! Some raw talent from Hurley. Scope his shots from the Dillon Francis show, which was absolutely mental mind you. All is well! Let’s get together at the next show. YOLO

Bassnectar released this free mixtape today. Chock full of unreleased tracks, remixes, mashups and pretty much any other type of choon you could imagine. I got excited because I thought it was split into track by track, but it’s still a huge mix. If you’re trying to sit back and relax, stay clear of this tape. Although the album art is a whirlwind of color, this mix shows a 90% chance of a wobble storm and 100% chance of you losing your shit.

Tracklist

Bassnectar – Color Storm
Bassnectar & Seth Drake – Above & Beyond
Bassnectar – Upside Down (Bassectar & Terravita Remix)
Top Cat & Rebel MC – Original Ses
Bassnectar & Datsik – YES

Zion I – Juicy Juice (Acapella)

Nas ft. Lauryn Hill – If I Ruled The World (Acapella)
ill.Gates & Captain Hook – Open your Eyes (Bassnectar Remix)

And here is a video I got of Bassnectar at Audiotistic in 2010. Probably among the best videos I’ve ever gotten, let alone the most intense show I’ve been a part of.
