Pinemarten

Pinemarten has been a huge part of my “sleep playlist” for a while now. So to celebrate his new EP “Coming Around Again Again”, I’ve decided to introduce you all to the wonderful mellowness that he’s created. The sound: lazy electronic chillwave. The feeling: melting into the grass.

Go – Delilah

It’s very refreshing to hear a new sound coming from pop/singer-songwriters every once in a while. This single release from U.K. artist Delilah completely ditches any of the usual pop formulas. The delicate and velvety sound of her voice takes centre stage, with just a few subdued instruments to set the tone.

The Lazy Days #15

I know that I’ve been saying goodbye to summer for like a month now, but this is officially it. One last farewell to lazy days and pick-up games in the sun. This weekly series is gonna be hibernating for a while, since lounge music just doesn’t feel as good when it’s raining/snowing all the time. I hope you’ve enjoyed the Lazy Days playlists so far. If you feel like you absolutely need more lounge/chill music, then do feel free to contact me.

Party Rageaholics #15

We sincerely hope that your weekend looks a lot like this picture. With a little bit of help from this playlist and Cap’n Morgan, of course.

No joke, prepare to get wrecked. I’m not trying to hype this up any more than it deserves, but this Party Rageaholics playlist is the hottest and dirtiest we’ve ever given you.


Pop/Hip-Hop

Two of England’s biggest musical stars team up to create this monster of a track. It’s impossible to go wrong combining Tinie Tempah’s craziness with Labrinth’s top-notch production featuring some dubstep influences. As Tempah says, “This one’s feeling like a straight 10 on the Richter scale.”
Download  Earthquake – Labrinth feat. Tinie Tempah  +

Timeflies continues their dominance of the electro-hop scene, this time mixing up a bit of dubstep into their sound. It works fantastically, and as always Cal’s vocals and Rob’s production fit together perfectly for some rage action.
Download  Turn It Up – Timeflies

Mash-up

A really hot mash-up of two of the summer’s biggest house tracks.
Download  No Beef Feels So Close – Joey Beatz (ft. Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Miss Palmer)

Vocal House

Download  Lonely Little Dancer (Radio Edit) – Hot Bananas feat. Rachele Dione

An older song from Rico Bernasconi, who absolutely nails the Caribbean-influenced vocal house track. This always gets me chanting along with him, “Feel the love!”

Instrumental House

For any of you who went to the Zoo this year, you’ll know this song since it has been declared The Anthem of Electric Zoo 2011. An impossibly huge song from one third of SHM and the fast-rising DJ/producer Alesso.
Download  Calling (Instrumental Mix) – Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso  +

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

This is one of the most anonymous songs I’ve ever come across. It is ridiculously amazing electro, which I found through YouTube almost four years ago. Still, despite hours and hours of searching these past years, I’ve never been able to find out anything about the artist, the song, or even the actual release date. For anyone who’s ever heard me DJ, you might recognize this song as it’s usually the one I play when everyone’s ready to go fucking mental. [Disclaimer: We are not responsible if you become impregnated by this song.]
Download  Haute Couture – Paris  ++

Raucous drumstep remix by Noisia; really amps this track up for those of you who love fast tempos.

Most of the vocals are chopped-up and dispersed throughout the track, but it still manages to retain a pretty grand feeling of joy and overwhelming happiness.

We’ve been obsessed with pretty much every crazy track coming from Knife Party. They’re all just on another level of epic dubstep raging.

P.S. Yes, I realize that I put red pluses on pretty much every single song. They’re all that good. Do yourself a favor and download them.

Pregame #13

Wow! It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Pregame list. So to make up for it here’s one of the best ones ever. It’s got hip-hop, indie, dubstep, house, and lots of love.


Hip-Hop

Kendrick has a really smooth vocal delivery that works well with the multilayered relaxed instrumental.
Download  Fuck Your Ethnicity – Kendrick Lamar

The closing track from London’s album released this past July, this track shows off his multi-genre appeal and vigorous energy.

A slightly quirky indie dance track, with loads of strange instruments and chopped-up vocals.
Download  I Lay My Head (Shook Remix) – Fallulah

Vocal House

We’ve often covered the phenomenal mash-up artist 3LAU and the equally talented group Sex Ray Vision, and their remix of “Work Hard, Play Hard” won the Tiesto remix competition by a long shot. It’s a beautiful progressive vocal house track, and its absolutely made to get you hyped up.
Download  Work Hard, Play Hard (3LAU & Sex Ray Vision Remix) – Tiesto  +

Dubstep

Since this is just the pre-game list, these are not the usual heavy sort of dubstep songs. No crazy womps or unintelligible samples. Just some fluid basslines and hypnotic vocals. I highly recommend both of these songs, especially if you don’t like what dubstep usually sounds like.

The Friendly Sound – Lemâitre

This young Norwegian electronic duo have an amazing and unique sound, playing around with electronic music in the same way that you’d expect someone to be jamming on a guitar. It sounds fresh and spontaneous, and the vocals complement the vibe perfectly.
