Today is my first time ever hearing of Joel Compass, which can be attributed to the fact I rarely listen to modern R&B due to a strong preference for old school crooning. You know, that New Edition, Jagged Edge, Boys II Men stuff. But, Joel Compass’ latest single “Fucked Up” is quite a track, and what brought it into my radar is this absolute banging remix by Huxley (Michael Dodman.)
How could I resist a Huxley remix? When I saw his name on the track ID, I knew I had to immediately push play; skipping it was not an option. And much to my surprise (sounds like something proper to say,) this remix ended up being not just a great deep grooving, bass pumping Huxley mix, but a track worth playing over, over, and over again!
I love Huxley! He’s one British guy who catches my fancy with his deep originals & bass pumping remixes. When I want it deep and jackin, I’m shuffling to the sounds of George Fitzgerald, Maya Jane Coles, Duke Dumont, Waze & Odyssey, Disclosure, and Huxley.
Give the remix a spin and while you’re at it, check out Joel Compass’ new music video “Fucked Up.”
The old school images from 80s films and music videos might not be what comes to mind first when you think of “Urban Sex,” but this video works!
The video is so fresh, so hype, and the ultimate groove to get in a funky, spunky, perhaps let’s get down mood. Okay, maybe not all that, but hey, this video is legit!
Check out the video edited by Meat Cassette. Lifelike’s new EP will be OUT IN JUNE on Nurvous Records.
House music is my heart, but hey I love all things in the family of electronic dance music and I can get down with dubstep and drum & bass (so addicting!) So when Keeping The Faith (Ian Halsall) sent me links to some of his latest tracks, I was totally digging what I heard.
Even though I’m a house music junkie for life and that’s my heart, I love all types of music (especially EDM.) So don’t ever be afraid to submit your music to me. I try my best to share good music.
Word to the wise: you can never go wrong with some dubstep, drum & bass, and good old fashioned breaks. So check out some of Keeping The Faith’s music and be sure to stay in the loop via his soundcloud.
San Francisco-based artist, Shiny Objects, might have released “Higher Ground” featuring singer Mike Marshall in March, but Maxxi Soundsystem has just shared with us his delicious, shiny, and electro goodie-goodness remix of the track.
I first fell in love with Maxxi Soundsystem when I heard “Regrets We Have No Use For” and since then, I’ve been hooked. Each track that Maxxi Soundsystem touches is bound to have some deep bass and quirky, often whimsical, electronic beats that create this sort of electro heaven.
As the weather begins to warm up here on the East Coast, I’m beginning to switch up my playlists to match the weather. In the midst of looking for great house mixes for the soundtrack of summer, Denmark-based house production Borneland sent me their May 2013 mix; jam-packed with the sounds of summer.
The brothers, Jonas & Micki Borneland, have really put all the right touches on this mix. Each track transitions seamlessly from one to the other, resulting in a beautiful groove of summertime fun, sex on the beach, and the thrills of house.
Push play. Relax. Laugh. Dream….
