The past few weeks, I’ve been switching back/forth from my house music/EDM playlists on Spotify and Pandora. But as of late (especially during my workouts), I’ve really been enjoying the Milk Music App. It’s got a fresh approach to streaming music, it looks cool, and they play good music. Simple.
Aside from interface differences, all of the streaming radio services play a lot of the same music, and one track that seems to make it way into each of my electronic stations is Deorro’s latest masterpiece, “Five Hours.”
You can’t help but to love “Five Hours.” It’s got this edgy vibe, yet still has this retro synth appeal that is perfect for a late-night drive. Albeit, the original is perfect, one thing that it’s missing is a nice vocal touch…which is where this “Don’t Hold Back” vocal mix picks up the “slack.”
Both versions are solid, hands down certified awesome, but I do love that vocal touch.
Don’t Hold Back Remix
Following the incredible success of “I Wanna Feel,” Second City returns with another piano-drive house track titled “What Can I Do.”
Featuring vocal support from Ali Love, this new single is an uplifting tune that will have you either dancing (or jumping) for joy. :)

What Can I Do
Before I call it a night and get ready for what should hopefully be a wickedly awesome productive week, I want you to fall in love with these fresh vibes from Starsmith.
The London-based EDM producer (mainly Dance music) has unveiled his new single “Now I Feel Good,” which is forthcoming on Ministry of Sound.
This new single is a beautiful electronic journey into a story of overcoming a first love and speeding into the right love. And it’s got a pop-vibe (the vocals), but the beat is perfect for a late-night cruise through the desolate city streets.
This track might not give you an eargasm, but it could get you close (or least warm you up):
Now I Feel Good
In my attempts to wind down from a great weekend, I stumbled across this heavy dosage of deep house & EDM from Oliver Heldens.
Hailing from The Netherlands, Oliver Helden’s is a DJ with a wicked good podcast/mixtape series titled “Heldeep Radio.” And his latest mix, #007, is jam-packed with some infectious cut that will have you dancing like a maniac!
I must say, after listening to this mix I’ve got this strong urge to hit up a dancefloor in DC. It’s been awhile since I’ve been seen at 18th Street Lounge or U Hall, so I think next weekend I must support the local house scene.
But I digress. All I’m saying is this mix from Oliver Heldens is certified awesome and you really need to give it a listen…now!
Heldeep Radio #007
Here are some of the best tracks from the mix. The good stuff:
Twenty Feet Down – When You Need Me (Original Mix)
Sam Smith – Stay With Me (Throttle Remix)
Marshall Jefferson – Move Your Body (Tchami Tribute)
I never thought sub-bass trap could sound so intoxicatingly eargasmic…that is, until I heard/saw RL Grime’s fresh new video for “Core.”
The video has an 80s 8-bit vibe, which is perfect for the 808-styled track that truly takes RL Grime’s reputation as “trap master” to new heights.
Without a question of a doubt, he’s one of my favorite producers/DJs in the trap scene, and I’m totally obsessed with the innovative aura of this video.
See for yourself:
Today’s set of fresh visuals come from London-based drummer/producer/remixer, Linden Jay.
Albeit this video came out last month, “Be Like You” is the perfect fusion of late-night R&B crooning infused with a housey vibe.
