skinny genes

I got the Jack Beats B-Side to “All Night” for you guys. With a name like “Elevator Music,” one can only dream of the possibilities of climbing buildings to jams like this. Although it’s not my favorite, they go just as slimy as usual. Full of bass and just the right amount of that Jack Beats wobble they’re always able to provide. I was scoping their FaceBook the other day, and they had a little bit to say on their upcoming album. Ah. 2011 is just going to get better and better and better:

This album of ours is starting to really take shape… it’s exciting! No release dates yet… it’s gonna take another few months to finish up proper- we wanna make it right rather than rushing it! it will be out later in the year at the earliest… we’ll have new material out before then though, and we’re gonna start remixing again very soon too… lots of new music coming!

Seems like literally two days ago that I posted the preview to this bad boy. A few hundred thousand replays later — it’s here! And just as bat shit insane as I had hoped. Skrillex’s hardcore music influences really sets him apart with this genre. Takes me back to the good ol’ days in the pit. Of the SM&NS remixes, Kaskade‘s reigns supreme. I’m feeling like the Dirtyphonics remix is going to win me over in the long run with all that energy, but who knows! There isn’t much else to say that hasn’t already been said, so I’ll let the EP speak for itself. If you’ve got some extra lettuce, help Skrilly out on Beatport. And for the record…I still don’t know what a sprite is. Unless he’s really referring to the soda? Someone help!

MM&S

1. First of the Year (Equinox)
2. Ruffneck (Flex)
3. Ruffneck (FULL Flex)
4. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Dirtyphonics Remix)
5. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Kaskade Remix)
6. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Phonat Remix)
7. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (The Juggernaut Remix)

BONUS BASS!

Foreign Beggars – Still Getting It (feat. Skrillex)

This is definitely a colab I’m not going to get tired of hearing anytime soon. Almost positive I heard Skrillex drop this during his set at Coachella. Allow me to apologize to your subwoofers in advance. STILL GETTIN IT!

Sad to say that the past year has been lacking the amount of new Duck Sauce tracks and remixes that I’ve been craving. Happy to say that it is because they’re hard at work for a full length that’s supposed to come out this year! Remember how exciting it was when all the new tracks and edits came out last summer? I’ve got my fingers crossed for a repeat this year. The following track is done by Viceroy who hails from lovely San Fran. Pretty cool to see some quality French house coming out of the U.S., let alone California. Anyhow, this track is an absolute disco banger. All I had of it song was a super low quality Louis La Roche remix that sounded straight out of Duck Sauce’s EDC set. (I put that one in my Ultimate Summer House Mix Pt. 1 if you wanna go pick it up.) Thanks to Viceroy I’ll be blasting this in its full 320 goodness until the original comes out. Try not to sing along to this one.

Surprise, surprise. Skrillex is back with more tracks for us and right in time for summer! The songs in this preview really had me put a lot more faith in Skrillex’s production abilities. New sounds. Same grime. Fatter bass. It’s been up for three days and he’s already got almost half a million views. There’s no denying this guy’s talent. Really surprises me that people talk so much shit. Hater’s gon hate though, that is for sure. Here’s what he said about the preview:

“Here’s a preview of my next mini Ep coming out. 3 new tracks and 4 new remixes of SM&NS that are a bit more experimental. It comes out on beatport june 7th so please take note and support the release! If ya have a couple spare bucks then please buy the tracks, if not then just torent them. Most important thing is that yal get the music, but the extra support always helps”

Tracklist

1. First of the Year (Equinox)
2. Ruffneck (Flex)
3. Ruffneck (FULL Flex)
4. Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Dirtyphonics Remix)

Come YOLO47 I’ll be a free man. Or maybe not “free” as much as a man of fewer worries. But until then, on the final grind of the school year with my UC peoples. I included a list of some of my favorite sets and mixes with the usual list, because I find they’re best to study with. I tried to put them in order of ones I liked best at the top…but I really love em all. Use or misuse at your own discretion and good luck to everyone. For everyone else out of school, fuck yourselves. Except for not really…I’ll be with ya in a week.

ZZT – Zzafrika (Julio Bashmore Remix) (Chill/Electronic)
ZZT – Zzafrika (Afrojack Rework) (Electronic)
Bibio – Ambivalence Avenue (Indie)
Nas – N.Y. State Of Mind (Hip Hop)
Nas – It Ain’t Hard To Tell (Hip Hop)
Beirut – Postcards From Italy (Folk)
Flinch – World On Fire (Dubstep)
Fussy Boy – Gold (Mord Fustang Remix) (Electro House)
Zedd – Changes ft. Champions (Original Mix) (Electronic)
Desert Noises – Building These Walls (Indie)

Mixes/Sets

The Twelves Essential Mix
My favorite essential mix ever. I can’t and won’t give it a rest. 2 solid hours of grade A electronic and house. Uniquely mixed in a way that only the Twelves can do.

Soulwax Live at Soulwaxmas 2008
Soulwax doing what they do best: flawless live sets. Little biased on this one because I saw them right before they played this in Europe at HHM 08 and it’s pretty similar, as far as I remember.

Moonchild’s Birthday Mix for Les Petits Bruits
Moonchild is definitely making a name for himself in the French/Disco house scene. This won’t be the last time he comes up on C+A+D. This mix has a bunch of his songs and remixes. Feel good and bass filled tunes.

Nero Essential Mix
Nero split this up into 3 parts. Dubstep/Electro/everything. The tracklist speaks for itself. Another favorite essential mix.

Treasure Fingers Live From Temple SF
Treasure Fingers…this guy can do no wrong. My favorite set of his so far.

Wolfgang Gartner Live at Winter Music Conference 2010
Right before Wolfgang took his final leap into the group of premier DJs. From his live show recordings and essential mix, I’d say this is his most well put together.

Treasure Fingers 2011 Spring Mix *Recorded Live In England*
Free Treasure Fingers Spring mix! More great house.

Fake Blood Essential Mix
Classic. Voted 4th best essential mix of 2009 and by good reason. Fake Blood is a bo$$.

Swedish House Mafia Live from EDC 2010
I’ll never forget this set from EDC. Witnessing this live put house music on a completely different level for me. One of my go-to’s for being productive.

Calvin Harris Essential Mix
2 hours of the Calvin Harris we know and love. He mixes it up a lot in this one. Hard filthy electro and dancy disco.

Soulwax Live at Hard Summer 2010
Soulwax returns to LA after a 2 year hiatus, and this low quality rip is all I have to remember it.

Wolfgang Gartner Essential Mix
60+ tracks in this massive mix by one of the top production wizards in the world. I was expecting more to be honest, but still a keeper.

I think it’s officially safe to say that house music is one of my favorite things to listen to. Not just house though. The bouncy disco house with just the right amount of soul and funk. Talkin 60s-70s vibes. I put together a list of tracks from DJs I feel most consistently match their songs up to these standards. Careful with this stuff though, if you like the first couple songs you’re going to want it all. In which case let me know! There’s a lot more where these came from, and every song is just as quality as the next. Once I realized how great it was to cruise the streets blaring relentlessly bass-filled house, I decided we should have a two part summer mix CD. Two parts mainly because I couldn’t fit everything I wanted onto one CD, but the more the merrier. The first half of this two part compilation is comin at you in the old school playlist style: all or nothing. Burn it, pop it in, put the top down and enjoy.

So here we are with week 45, Memorial Day weekend and I’m still at home. The beaches are getting packed even though the weather’s a bust. Meanwhile Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Benny Benassi, Avicii, Treasure Fingers, etc. etc. are spinning sets at pool parties and night clubs in Vegas, at what seems like the place to be during the end of May. What better way to commemorate our troops than getting belligerently drunk with some of the best DJs in the world? Who knows…well, for those who are around, enjoy your weekly dose of random/not so-random-goodies
