Each time I do the monthly best of, I usually single out a couple really outstanding compositions but ranking them is a new endeavour. Sure its totally subjective and is probably going to cause a bunch of fuss, but you know what? …I have the blog, so I’m right. It gets a little hazy after #1, but at least there is an extremely clear top dawg this month; Bare & Datsik’s original dubstep track ‘King Kong’ is probably going to be in every dubstep set I drop until October.
Tons of good remixes and mashups for you this month in the dubstep category, but only one original. SBTRKT’s new song Wildfire is a bit unconventional in dubstep terms, but just because it doesn’t use Modern Talking doesn’t mean its “not dubstep”. Not that I take genres really seriously – they are basically just here to help you guys find music you might like.[audio:Basic Physics – A Beauticians World (Britney Spears x Dillon Francis).mp3,Miami Horror – Holidays (SposhRock Remix).mp3,Mr. Little Jeans – The Suburbs (Arcade Fire Cover).mp3,Notorious B.I.G. – Gimme The Loot (Superginger Dubstep Remix).mp3,SBTRKT – Wildfire.mp3,Thrice – Broken Lungs (Adventure Club Remix).mp3]
Forcing Function has a couple tracks that have weasled their way in to my top40/electro set repertoire, and their latest is no exception. I’ve been dropping the Rolling in the Deep mashup in every single party set I’ve done since I got it last month.[audio:Adele vs. Digiraatii – Rolling In The Thrill (Forcing Function Mashup).mp3,Adele vs. Robin S – Show Me In The Deep (DJs From Mars Classic Club Bootleg).mp3,Aretha Franklin – A Deeper Love (Trick Folexxx Remix).mp3,Deadmau5 – Raise Your Weapon (Intro + Madeon Remix).mp3,Deftones – Youve Seen The Butcher (Mustard Pimp Remix).mp3,DJ Falcon + Thomas Bangalter – Together (Le Castle Vania + Computer Clubs Summer Bootleg Mix).mp3,Lady GaGa – Marry The Night (Zedd Remix).mp3,Lucky Date – I Love The Way You Move (Original Mix).mp3]
Great month for chill downtempo stuff. I’ve been on a real kick lately, as I have a few outdoor daytime sets coming up that I am most excited for. There’s nothing like music beside the lake or pool on a nice summer day, amirite!??![audio:B-Roc Of The Knocks – Theres Something About Us Under The Sheets (Ellie Goulding vs Daft Punk).mp3,Charlotte Gainsbourg – Trick Pony (Boys Noize Remix).mp3]
A couple real heater mashups on here, and some proper original/remix work. Avicii’s latest is a festival hit for sure, and Dan Castro’s latest party edit is a “must rinse” for all the DJs out there.[audio:Avicii – ID (Original Mix).mp3,Caribou – Sun (Pyramid Remix).mp3,Daft Punk – High Life (Dan Castros Bring Back The Funk Edit).mp3,Dimitri Vegas + Like Mike + Dada Life – Stars Align Tomorrow (Digital Lab and Pedro Henriques Dub – Kaskade Mashup).mp3,Edwin Van Cleef – Lisztomania (feat.
