B33t Basket


     Sup! B33n sup3r busy lat3ly with school bullshit but I would n3v3r l3av3 you without th3 prop3r tunag3 for th3 w33k3nd!

Stay Up:

Harvest
I was sitting around at work the other night and this tune was playing in the background. At first I didn't notice that I was tapping my foot and bobbing my head when one of my co-workers walked by and was like "YEAH MAN, THIS SONG IS NASSSTTY!!!" All of a sudden, disco dance party broke out, boobies were flying left and right! As the song started to end, I realized I needed to get the name of the track! Being a poor mawfucka and not having any sort of iGizmo, I quickly had my friend download Shazam (if you don't know what that is, look it up) and try and obtain the name of the mystery tune. After what seemed like an hour and as the song was nearly over, the iPhone prevailed and the song was found!
I now pass onto you this funky tech-house bomb!
YOU'RE WELCOME.

Breakn' A Sweat (Zedd Remix):

Harvest
He be killlin' em! Recycled sounds (the drop/main riff is basically Slam The Door) but still super phat! I can dig it!

In My Mind (Axwell Mix):

Harvest
Another A+ edit from Axwell of SHM! I have no idea how he does it.....this is straight beeyoootiFULL! Oh and not to brag or anything but......I GOT TICKETS TO COSMIC OPERA!!!!!
The uniqueness of each member of The Mafia, makes it worth while to take the time to see each producer individually. Being the lucky bastard that I am, I will get experience Axwell in a production that he is personally putting together. It is going to be unreal. I will document it as best I can! Feb 24th can't come any sooner.


Every track is a MUST!

Can't Stop Me Now


     Afrojack and Shermanology's highly anticipated single, Can't Stop Me Now is finally here! It is a fantastic collaboration of that dirty-dutch whine that we can't get enough of, topped with KILLER vocals. Seriously, the singer from Shermanology will bring tears to your eyes with her godly voice. This track is more in the realm of mainstream/club house but I know all you chicks out there are going to dig it (brownie points for me!). I would say this tune is going to be like the next Take Over Control (don't know if thats a good thing or a bad thing....) Anyways, N_Joy.

Spaceman


    Hardwell's first single of 2012 was finally released today! Spaceman is another spectacular tune from the young producer, encompassing floating (almost "space-like") melodies and silky synths. This tune will put you in a trance before abruptly exploding over head like Space Shuttle Columbia! (Too soon? I apologize).

Steve Jobs


      Take a guess who that person in the picture is. For those can't put two and two together or live in a third world country, that is Steve Jobs. While many sources say he was a huge dick head (and while I secretly believe he was planning to take over the world), we can all agree he revolutionized the tech world and the way we use the letter "i". In the electronic scene, Macs are #1 comps for DJs and producers (don't try and argue with me. When was the last time you saw someone using a Dell or some shit), and iPads are starting to make a bigger debut in live performance; all thanks to Steve. Fellow Steve (Aoki) and Angger Dimas want to keep his spirit alive in a wild electronic single. So, in memory of Steve, please blast this bumping tune through an Apple product.

Yeah!


   We've been waiting a lonnnnngg time for this one. Nothing super special about this tune, except for the fact that it flat out ROCKS! If you ever seen Steve do it live, you know already know the effect this track has on large groups of people. Madness, I say!

Make It Drop (Angger Dimas Remix)


     Hold up a minute! I am very disappointed at the internet world for not giving this song the recognition it deserves. Before we get into the song, I want to say one thing: ANGGER DIMAS IS THE FUCKING SHIT. This kid produces music EXACTLY how I like it: hard, head banging tracks with dutch flare. We should all try to be more like Mr. Dimas. While the original track is off the hook, this remix is definitely my cup of tea. Angger Dimas dirty-dutch-ifies this rave-a-licious tune, making it the knock out punch in your set. Enough time wasted reading this, TIME to have a listen and don't forget to N_joy:

Fedde Le Grand & Nicky Romero


     What up B33theads! For those who started school today and are sporting a frown, turn that shit upside down because here is two KILLER tracks from Nicky Romero and Fedde Le Grand. The first tune, Freaky, is a turbo boosted dutch track that has lyrics reminiscent to Daft Punk's Technologic and a beat similar to Romero's Flash. If the dance floor is getting drab, break a neck or three with this energetic tune! The second track, Slacking, is a jackin, rave anthem that is going to squeeze the low-end on your speakers! Greasy and phat just like how I like my women :)

Freaky (Original Mix):

My type of music right hurr!!!!

Weekend B33t Basket #1009398848


    While I lay here, curled in the fetal position, regretting last night's poorly made decisions, I have a few songs I want you to listen to. Thanks.

Midnight City (Eric Prydz Remix):

Harvest
Grandmaster Eric Prydz blesses M83's biggest single, giving it a nice progressive flow. When this song plays, I imagine some real emotional shit like a fireman pulling people out of a wreck after a bomb goes off in a building or something "artistic" like someone diving off a 100 foot cliff..... I don't know....its just what I imagine..... fuck you.

Do The Robot:

Harvest
At first glance, I was not a fan of this song BUT for some reason it has grown on me. Laidback Luke grabbing the filter knob and abusing it like your dad abuses liquor. The song sounds like a car with a fucked up transmission....

Slam The Door:

Harvest
Hot damn, Pepper Ann! Zedd disregards your meager pleas for peace and beats up your ear drums with a SPECTACULAR, hard hitting track!

Total Recall:

Harvest
The gloves are off! Here is an A+ slap from my all time favorites Flosstradamus. This gangster tune consists of sharp percussion and LOTSOFDABASS. Roll the windows down and drive slow.


whhhyyyyyy meeee?!!?!!? i wish i could rewind time and go back to last evening before 8pm and kick myself in the balls.....
long story short: crystal meth is one helluva drug

PS im kidding about the crystal meth, i only mess with airplane glue :)

Fuck School

     
     As my winter break begins to wind down and the next quarter of school begins to approach, I am thinking only one thing...."fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk". While the title suggests otherwise, this little gem from Avicii and Nicky Romero is uplifting, playful, and catchy as hell; you gon' lyk dis! The perfect midweek pick me up! N_joy!

F**K School:

MUSTHarvest
EDIT:// THIS IS NOT THE FINAL VERSION  >_<. Mah bad.
The live versions include a Justice "D.A.N.C.E." sample.
Once it releases, I will fix.

Lets Reflect


    What up b33theads! While you're groggily trying to figure out how Shamu ended up next to you this morning or for you more ambitious kitties, trying to start your New Years resolutions, lets slow down for a moment and reflect on an eventful, memorable year of 2011! I first thought about compiling my top 10 songs of 2011 but then it got real sticky as to who would rank over who and how all the different genres would effect the standings so instead I did it by month. 12 songs, 1 from every month that I felt really killed it and made a big mark the electronic music scene. If you disagree with my choices, please write me an angry letter then go to the post office and kill yourself. (HAH didnt see that one coming, did you??) Just kidding. Anyways, here we go:

1. Optinuum -Moguai

Harvest
The electronic dance scene absolutely exploded in mid 2010 and continued to uncontrollably spill out all over the US. At the start of 2011, with progressive house becoming more popular due to the likes of mainly Deadmao-five, Moguai released this masterpiece to kick off what would become an even crazier year. This song is fuego!

2. Zero 76 -Tiesto & Hardwell

Harvest
Released in February, this song is crucial because it marked the transition of Tiesto, switching from Trance to House, never to look back again :( Alongside this momentous change, this was a giant break for rising producer, Hardwell. Once Hardwell got this exposure, it was all main stages and top of the charts for the young son of a gun. Everyone loves a pumping big room track- N_Joy.

3. Big Bass Drum -TAI:

Harvest
While big-room house generally took over the scene, producers like TAI keep it fresh with wobbly electro tracks like this one! One of my all time favorite filth tracks!

3.5. Que Que -Diplo & Dillon Francis

Harvest
Sorry but I couldn't just pick one song in the month of March. This is another song that blew me away and marked the rising of the hot, new genre: MOOMBAHTON! Diplo has always been an idol of mine. He is a producer that is unafraid to meld every style of music from rap, electro, and reggae, dance-hall. Alongside, this was another big break for young star, Dillon Francis, who we can all say is some what the "poster boy" of the moombahton genre. Dillon Francis fits well under the Mad Decent label, because like Diplo, his production style  is unorthodox and unique. Big things continue to pour out from both producers and the Mad Decent label.

4. Cry (Just A Little) -Bingo Players

Harvest
Bingo Players are EASILY in my top 5 Favorite Producers. What makes them special is their simplistic style and their ability to create tracks from dirty dutch and disco to main stage-festival tracks. This track brought them instant fame with its catchy, happy go lucky disco feel. From the time Cry took the top of the Beatport charts all the way up until now, they have continued to thrive with a multitude of top 10 hits like Rattle and Mode, as well as started their own label, Hysteria Records, and own radio show, Hysteria Radio. Unbelievable duo! Can't wait to see what they bring to the table in 2012!

5. Prutataaa -Afrojack & R3hab

Harvest
As I continue to compile this list, I am starting to notice a trend: Current star does collaboration with protégé=both people gain all the spoils you can imagine......lucky bastards. Afrojack, the #1 DJ in the world, introduces fellow dutchman, R3hab and together they birth one filthy tune! Me likey!

5.5. Save The World -Swedish House Mafia

Harvest
Yup, I had to do it. Paying homage to the greatest trio in the world. Swedish House Mafia kicked off the summer of dance music with this popular tune. For me, this song sticks out as to when House music became REALLLLY popular, like more plays on the radio, in the club, etc etc. Whether you like this song or not, SHM doesn't need your approval. What makes the trifecta so awesome to me is that they haven't gone off and done some bullshit, mainstream work to rake in more money and fame like David Guetta or even, Afrojack. Yes, I understand that D.G. and Afrojack are producers and a producer's job is to make music for anyone/everyone and yes, I still like their music but SHM doesn't deal with the petty mainstream crowd. They are solely about HOUSE and nothing BUT HOUSE. ReSpEkT, yo!

6. Lotus -Mumbai Science:

Harvest
Still waiting for these guys to get the recognition they deserve. Techno and electro rolled into a giant rock, which is then melted down and injected directly into your eyeballs. I have never seen a crowd of 40 people turn so animalistic. These guys fucking rule and hopefully more people jump on the wagon in 2012.

7. Levels (Clockwork Remix) -Avicii

Harvest
Oh yes I did! Two reasons this song is here:
1. Clockwork kills it with this edit. Its like getting punched in the nut sack by Pacquiao himself.
2. Avicii is a dope producer. Respect is due where respect is earned.

8. Bodywork -Bart B More & Tommie Sunshine

Harvest
Age does not matter in the electronic music scene. Here is a fine example of young and old coming together and breaking necks. Bart B More is another young cat who is slowly climbing to the top. Mixing electro, wobbly bass music, and acid house, his music will make you laugh, cry, sneeze, fart. Check plus!

8.5. Calling -Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso

Harvest
Ah, another example of current star paving the way for young star. It was also nice to see Sebastian Ingrosso come out with an original track because I feel like people were getting skeptical as to how much he contributes to SHM. I mean, seeing how Axwell and Angello constantly pump out their own original stuff and what not..... Hey, I am not talking down on Ingrosso at all. Matter of fact, I freaking love him and if I was a woman, I would definitely sleep with him. I just needed some reassurance to show other people that he is thee man!
I could listen to this song a 1000 times in a row and not get sick of it. Don't test me.....

9. Audio, Video, Disco -Justice

Harvest
And for a moment the world stopped spinning. Justice finallllllllllyyyy released new material which was  followed by a lot of criticism. Took me a while to accept the fact that the new stuff wasn't going to be like Cross. Nonetheless, I love Justice and the new material continues to grow on me daily. Seeing them in April, should be life changing.

9.5. Beta -Hardwell & Nicky Romero

Harvest
This song is like if Mila Kunis and Amber Heard (the blonde smoke show from Pineapple Express) decided to release a s3x t4p3! Again, two rising stars swapping spit and ejaculating a tidal wave of unicorns and narwhals. Okay, that made no sense and I think I took it a little far. What I really mean is, here is a track that is the future. Both Nicky Romero and Hardwell have made leaps and bounds this year and continue to turn heads with every production they put out. Be on the look out for both of these bad boys come 2012.

10. Original Don -Major Lazer

Harvest
It was wayyyy tooo long since Major Lazer put out anything new. This funky dance-hall influenced track has got everything you want in a party tune: heavy, fast-paced bass and grimy synths! Spark up your crack pipes and go krazy!

11. Let The Beat Control Your Body -Brodinski

Harvest
My tune of 2011. TechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechnoTechno. We've heard enough house. Take it back to the warehouse rave, go to that happy place and let the beat control your body.....

12. Antidote -Swedish House Mafia & Knife Party

Harvest
When legends collide.
Swedish House Mafia & Knife Party bringing in the last year on earth.
Cheers!

All in all, the electronic music scene is blown up in epic proportions. While it may be in its golden era, I know for a fact that it is here to permanently stay. Thanks to all my readers, it only gets better from here!
