Me & You should take a vaca
When songs like this start to come out, the sun starts to come out with them. Yes, Spring is coming. For some of you (lucky!), Spring is already there, half way there, or it’s always been spring - hate you a lil bit for that. If you couldn’t tell by the sounds of it or by the obvious cover, this song is the 'riding top down in my coupe-convertible cause it's another sunny day in Cali' 2013 spring anthem. Every spring gets at least one of these.
I wanna be pragmatic - let’s look at the artists behind this one:
- Martin Solveig: 36 year old Parisian electro-house DJ/Producer.
- The Cataracs: hip-hop indie-pop (?) duo from California, featured on ‘Like A G6’.
- Kyle: independent rapper on the rise, does a pretty good job on the track.
It’s been a minute since I hear anything from Marin Solveig, of course he’s still trying to top that Hello song with Dragonette. Do you think “Hey Now” will do it?
Redefining great with The xx
The original song is already so good, Panic City adds their flair to it, making it more upbeat and redefining what we know as great.
The XX is a 3-piece London indie pop band, almost forgot award-nominated too. This song is from their second LP, Coexist, which is said to have heavy influence from club music.
Panic City is an up and coming producer/DJ from San Fran, one to definitely have your eye/ear on.

Studies show that it’s healthy to PARTY
Just don’t ask me which studies, but please trust me. I imagine that’s what Pitbull lives by or something. One party banger after another. I certainly don’t love them all, but I have to admit most serve their purpose which is to be a soundtrack for all of our parties.
Even if it’s a guilty pleasure, we all have to admit we’ve partied to a Pitbull song.

KUUDOOS for this sick track
Fan of Tegan & Sara by any chance? or David Guetta? or Alesso?
With so many talented and creative masterminds collaborating for this song, how couldn’t it be so good? Plus, of course TWINS! (HOT)
The beat is as good as it gets (good album title *just saying*). The Lyrics are simple, but kinda emotional. If you listen to it well, it’s a dark love story disguised in an up-tempo killer beat, perfectly sung by twin sisters Tegan & Sara. I repeat: As Good As It Gets!
David Guetta & Alesso - Every Chance We Get We Run (ft. Tegan & Sara)
No better way to start the week.
If you ever see/hear something that’s amazing, do you ever think about how it could be even better? More importantly, how can YOU make it even better? It’s an interesting way of seeing things, and it’s nothing short of a success recipe. If you don’t believe me, ask the genius producers and mixers over at RAC, who take any hit song and make it 10x better.
The Killers - Runaways (RAC Mix)
This one goes to all of you who live life to the fullest
A sick remix to this 1D hit.
I have to be honest and admit that it took me a good while to actually like (more like respect) One Direction. I don’t like all of their songs, nor am I a 1D crazy groupie. But I respect what they do, and I always say that a good pop song never hurt anyone. They are a record breaking band, reaching the top of UK bands both in the EU and in the US.
That certainly isn’t an easy task, and it takes talent and hard work and dedication - I know that for a fact.
One Direction - Live While We’re Young (Jump Smokers Remix)
because we all need a little bit of this sometimes
Calvin Harris sets himself and his music apart from the bunch. He describes his new album as “epic-sounding” and like other successful DJs (i.e. Guetta) he collaborates with a group of amazing artists like Florence Welch (+ The Machine), Kelis, Rihanna, and Ne-Yo. Personally, ‘18 Months’ is my go-to album to get pumped.
It’s very up-beat, with beautiful vocals, good songwriting and a vibrant production on his part…euro house music at its best!!

Lyrics matter, and by the way RAC kills it again with this mix
I’m no expert (trying but not quite) but there are different components that make up a song. Sure the beat, the instruments, and vocals are extremely important. But lyrics matter! No, this is not a hate post to artists who write meaningless songs and are successful - they have their own merits for that. Rather this is a commentary on us, fans and listeners.
Way too many times we over look great lyrics - and awful ones as well. To the point of even signing along to the words but still our minds have been seduced by the music. Ladies: sometimes you sing your hearts out to songs that - if you think about it - are diminishing to you, and some others that in any other context you would say are "totally inappropriate and just not the kind of girl I am".
Matter of fact is, even if we realize it or not, songs transform us (boys and girls) into cold blooded gangsters for 4:56s, mellow romantics for 2:43s, or party animals for 5:11s.
Kings of Leon’s outstanding production, RAC’s shocking mixing and Caleb’s deep vocals cast a shadow on the other great aspect of this song: its lyrics. They are very simple and yet very powerful words that I know many of us can identify with. Now, do you know what it’s saying or having chanted to ‘U(u)se Somebo(o)dy(y)’ in the chorus makes no sense to you?
Kings of Leon - Use Somebody (RAC Mix)
U got it Ellie, no worries!!
This is what I like to call a dope track. Produced by the genius Calvin Harris to match Ellie Goulding’s beautiful singing just to result in this amazing song. It’s one of those that if you give it two weeks it will be blowing up all over the place (hopefully not TOO much)
Calvin Harris - I Need Your Love (ft. Ellie Goulding)
Children please don’t take advice from Swedish House Mafia.
All others please do cause this looks like an amazing time!
Swedish House Mafia - Don’t Worry Child (Live)
this song makes me wanna party tonight, tomorrow night, the one after that…and so on
You might be asking yourself, Who the hell is Outasight? He’s just another 29 year old singer/hip-hop artist dude from NYC.
Outasight - Tonight Is The Night
is it just me or she wolves are sexy.. right??
On a more serious note, wat a great track from Sia (da chick from Wild Ones) and David Guetta (u know who he is)
for ur next party and drunk dancing (yea?)
Cheryl Cole from England has this song playing in every *bloody* club in Europe.
a nice twist to the radio classic
Karmin is an american engaged couple and pop duo. I too would be engaged if I was in a pop duo.
two very awesome musicians, of very different styles, collaborate. And it couldn’t get any better.
