I am sure that you have seen the trailer for Zac Efron’s hilarious awful-but-probably-soon-to-be-popular-because-ya-know-white-people EDM movie “We Are Your Friends.” Some internet Einstein has created this brilliant redubbed trailer for what should have been… an honest appraisal of present DJ culture. I have been laughing out loud all day.
It’s no secret that I am obsessed with The Notorious B.I.G. I have remixed his tracks countless times, and find myself consistently coming back to his catalogue when I need something perfect for a track. My “Happy Birthday Biggie” soundcloud playlist no longer exists, so I thought I would share video links to some of my favorite Biggie Smalls remixes that I have done over the years.
This is what I am listening to right now. It is one of the best songs ever made. It’s called “Saturday Love,” and I am listening to it on Monday. That’s how much I like it.
New York native Scott Melker doubled down with Miami based production outfit Glow Team to produce a banging heavy-hitter that’s perfect for late night cruising and pre-party turning-up. Titled “No No Way,” the tune rides an undulating wave that coasts along on mellow, atmospheric runs before plunging into fierce, hard-hitting bass sequences.
“No No Way is a track that I started almost two years ago. I chopped up the vocal sample, trapped it out, and put it on my to-do list to finish,” said Melker. “When I met the young geniuses from Glow Team, I sent the track over and let them run with it.”
“When Melker showed us the track, we instantly knew we had to bounce on the beat. It just clicked,” added Glow Team.
After several weeks of going back and forth, both artists realized they were sitting on something special. Fans of Glow Team will hear their stamp on the track in its high-octane build-ups and frenetic sound effects, whereas Melker’s touch is apparent in the tune’s bouncing, trap-inspired rhythm and spliced vocals. Despite the ferocity of its beat and the raw intensity of its bass drops, “No No Way” is painted in a haunting and almost melancholy light by a simple three-note melody framed by evocative arpeggios.
Sometimes I share songs that I like. I have liked this song since it was released in 1986. I had it on 45. For those of you that are too young to know, that’s the tiny little vinyl with the big hole in it. I also had the tape. And then the CD. I really like this song. Educate yourself!
Trill Collins is one of my favorite projects that I ever released, especially the first track. Unfortunately, I chose to put the responsibility for this release into the hands of a PR company for the first (and last time), and it went further under the radar than my other EPs. Also, when I originally dropped Trill Collins, it was available for sale exclusively on LEGITMIX. For the first time, I am offering Trill Collins as a FREE DOWNLOAD. Get it RIGHT HERE! You can also stream the entire project on YouTube, as seen below. Enjoy!
Hear yee, hear yee! The votes are in and the world’s 5 douchiest DJs have been announced. The winners are – Steve Aoki, Steve Aoki, Steve Aoki, Steve Aoki AND STEVE AOKI. In all “seriousness,” Pulse compiled a list that included other DJs besides Steve Aoki, although he will clearly always be the biggest (and least talented) douche. Here is that list.
