The Mekanism

Deep Disco | Gwen Guthrie – ‘Dance Fever (The Mekanism Edit)’

Gwen+Guthrie+Gwen

As part of Deep Amsterdam’s Edit Series, The Mekanism has put his deep house spin on Gwen Guthrie’s disco classic, “Dance Fever.”

Even though I was born in 91′, I grew up shaking my groove thang to the funky sounds of disco. And when I discovered that house music had strong roots in disco, I knew that I would always be a disco dancing-machine. 

Whenever I’m @ Deep Sugar or U Street Music Hall and the DJ starts playing some disco house, I get down on that dance floor and boogie like there is no tomorrow.

So, in spirit of keeping things old school and paying respect to them disco roots, I urge you to get oh so funky to these sweet disco vibes.

Go Ahead Baby, Dance

Certified Awesome | SecondCity – ‘I Wanna Feel’

Second City’s “I Wanna Feel” is a massively wiicked, hands down certified awesome tune!

For sure? For sure for sure.

I heard this track a few weeks back at Eighteenth Street Lounge, and I went crazy! I was housing it up, had a little circle going, and was just in the zone jacking my body (jack yo body!)

This track is also featured in Sam Divine’s Defected Radio takeover, so if she featured it, then you know it’s the truth. That girls knows her house!

Loosely classified as a “garage house” track, the piano and the heavy bass are what make this track so damn good! On top of that pulsating bass, you’ve got these sexy vocals saying ” I Wanna Feel.”

Yes baby, I wanna feel…house me all night long! ;)

Check out the official music video below.

Trust me, you’re going to want to dance…like RIGHT NOW!

Pure Bliss | Shy Girls – ‘When I Say I Love U (Saux Remix)’

Shy-Girls-Remix-Saux

As of late I’ve been reflecting on the first time I fell in love and that incredible euphoric state of exploration of the heart, mind, body, and soul. Man, it’s so powerful…and it’s amazing how feelings like that never die.

It’s true, you never really forget your first love. Even if almost a decade has passed, they still haunt your dreams and tug at your heart. Continue reading

#Turntup | Dj Snake ft. Lil Jon – ‘Turn Down For What’

maxresdefault-3After debating back and forth what I should do for NYE’s here in the DMV, I think I’ve finally decided to spend the night geeking out and get #turntup to some trap x bass @ U Street Music Hall. 

Considering that I’ve listened to Dj Snake & Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” probably over a hundred times (so serious,) it seems that trap has this crazy effect on making me super hyper!

Mind you, on a daily basis I’m already hyper to the max (and I’m not ADHD or anything,) but trap has a way of making me so hype!

I mean, yeah, house music (My #1 love) drives me wild and moves my body and soul, but trap is my alternative party anthem.

And if you’ve ever listened to trap while working out, man isn’t it such an adrenaline rush?

Yesterday I was working out to this track:

Alright, that’s enough hype for right now. I’ve got to head to DC and take care of some business.

Happy Friday! :)
