It’s Halloween, Bitches! (Part 2)

So the first part was all dubstep, but if that’s not your thing, you’ll (almost definitely) love these house tracks.

 

Steve Aoki, also known as the best stage-diver in the DJ world, is a pretty fuckin mental person. So of course we expect the same of his music, and this track makes it clear just how awesome he is.

Dirty South have been turning massive tunes all year, but this is probably one of the best they’ve released. A big-room progressive house track that works best with the volume turned way up and a hundred people jumping to the beat.

A Halloween party just isn’t the same without playing “Thriller” at least once. So make that one time count with a smashing remix.

Blink (Addiction Remix) – John Dahlbäck

“Blink” was John Dahlback’s breakthrough song that put his name out there several years ago; to this day, it’s a smack-you-in-your-face gritty beast of a track that can dominate a dancefloor. This 2009 Addiction remix turns up the basslines enough to give it a fresh feeling. Best served at high volumes.

I.D.G.A.F.O.S. – Dillon Francis

 

I Dont Give A Fuck Or Shit.

What a heroic name for a song. Dillon Francis totally rocks my socks, and this song feels like he’s making the step up to become a festival headliner. It’s got all the elements of the various genres he dabbles in, a bit of moombahton/dubstep/electro/pure-undiluted-awesomeness. Plus, I’m not exactly sure why but to me the melody instantly gets me thinking about Irish leprechauns.

The point is: the song is huge, it reaches for the stars and then slams down a psychotic bassgasm.

Considering that he’s such a hero and gives away virtually all of his music for free, you should show your support by getting the song from Beatport or iTunes.

Moonlight Sonata (Sound Remedy Remix) – Beethoven

My first thought as this song settled into my head: “this would be such a good song to listen to when blazed.” Sound Remedy has injected a dose of tension, light drums, and a few mild basslines into one of Beethoven’s most popular works. This is gorgeous, mellow dubstep of the best kind: it only complements the track, and it leaves the structure and original melody unaffected. The best thing about it is that there is no token “drop” moment – while the song does have some build-up sequences, the release is gentle and mesmerizing.

Basically: Get blazed. Listen to this song.

The M Machine

You may remember the song “Trafalgar” that I raved about early in the summer. Well even though we still don’t know who they are, The M Machine is back with some fucking sick new music.

The first two are just like “Trafalgar,” intense and breathtaking electro. The kind of electro that would actually make your heart stop in the middle of a party (and then restart with a bang).

 

Listen to this song from the beginning! This is not a traditional build-up, it’s like it gets you to the edge of a waterfall without you realizing it, and before you know what’s happened you’re thrown off the edge with the rush of a trillion tons of water flowing around your head.
Download  Promise Me A Rose Garden – The M Machine  ++

This remix is the first production they’ve ever done, releasing it over 8 months ago. Still, I can confidently say that it has been overlooked for too long and this quality of electro should be revered. A bit on the hardcore side so skip on to the next one if you’ve got a faint heart.

If those two tracks are the perfect fit for a raving night of heavy ecstasy and cocaine usage, then “Glow” is exactly what you’d need to hear when you wake up the next day. A gentle, percussive track with the hook “I feel young again” quickly settling in the part of my brain that makes me sing out song lyrics at random times of the day.
