It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I just haven’t come across any really great stuff until now. This track is going to be huge. Hardwell was recently voted into the top 10 dj’s via DJ Mag, and his productions show he is deserving. This progressive/electro track has a unique sound, and I’m really looking forward to its release.
Hardwell released an exclusive preview of this track yesterday and it’s already getting some serious attention. This Dutch EDM mastermind has worked closely with Tiesto and ranked #24 in DJ Mag’s top 100 DJ list of 2011. This remix has all the insane build ups I’ve come to expect from Hardwell and the drop does not disappoint. Get ready to hear a lot more of this high energy banger in the upcoming months. Turn it up and get down.
Well I think it’s fair to say that just about everyone aims to chase the sun when it comes to be summertime. I’ll be chasing hard beats and seeking the dancefloors that are conducive to them. The quest starts with Hardwell’s “Chasing The Sun” remix. Featuring a great vocal track from The Wanted, this jam will certainly become one of those festival anthems, as do most of Hardwell’s releases. He just seems to be one of the best at producing those sounds that leave you with this thought: I don’t want to throw my hands in the air, I NEED to throw my hands in the air! Get ready to move your feet and bob your head until your neck hurts. This is a JAM.
“You blocked me on Facebook, and now you’re going to die” is a phrase that was made popular by Knife Party’s track “Internet Friends”. Hardwell has taken it upon himself to switch things up a bit, revamping the vocals to say: You don’t like Hardwell on Facebook, and now you’re going to die. How catchy. This is quite an interesting ploy. Could you imagine hearing this in a set? It’s essentially advertising, and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. But hey, Facebook likes are everything these days. Beyond that silly edit, the track itself retains its original melody and really doesn’t see any major changes. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like Hardwell could’ve done better for 200k. This is the first review containing any semblance of negative opinion that I can remember on EHusky… It doesn’t feel good, but I had to.

A Miami music week favorite, this track is highly anticipated by many. Tiesto is obviously a fan favorite, and Hardwell has really thrived as his protege. Their remix of “Young Blood” is not the hard, grinding anthem you may be looking for in a Hardwell track, yet his influences are apparent in the bassline and well throughout the melodic build. This is one of those set-closers that will leave the crowd with something beautiful, yet powerful. I have great confidence that you’ll listen to it more than once. The only question is: How many times?

NO_ID & Martin Volt have teamed up to produce a monster track, and one that gets taken to the next level by Hardwell. You can clearly here the Axwell influence in NO_ID’s sound in this release, with pulsing synths that border on the acid house end of things. With Hardwell’s version you get that clear-cut grinding bass that he is so known for, and a perfected melodic build. Overall, it makes the track much more robust and full. The bottom line here, though: Look out for NO_ID & Martin Volt in the future; they are destined for great things. Hardwell is well on his way.
Hardwell liked this remix so much he featured it on his latest radio show. It boasts an acid house feel that gives it a harder and more solid punch than the original version. The melodic parts that fill in the gaps are very stripped down and build slowly back into the full-bodied tune it has always been, creating a very interesting and fresh look at ‘Spaceman’. If Ryan Dubay continues to produce like this, his future could be very bright.
EHusky has enough followers for me to flip the switch some weekly traditions. When I think about what days I, as a college student, or working individual, need new music the most, monday and thursday come to mind. Thursday is obvious – big bar night, almost the weekend, need something to get you in the mood. On monday (and tuesday/wednesday for that matter), as we wait in traffic to sit at various desks or walk through cold weather to get to class, the stereo and headphones become mankind’s best friend. No one wants their best friend to have an off day. Help yourself out by adding EHusky’s Monday Essentials to your iPod every week. You won’t regret it.
Go Your Own Way In The Air (Team Wing Mashup) - Rafael Frost v Fleetwood Mac - Comin’ at you directly from EHusky’s favorite Aussies is a new mashup that will provide you with inspiration and a positive attitude. Much like Team Wing themselves, the track encourages you to pave your own path in life, and it features a brisk and aggressive beat that will act as your natural 5 hour energy. So save your $4 and an overly-elevated heart rate. Listen to this song.
Willow (Original Mix) – Modek| Download- Featured on Dada Life’s January podcast, this track has been on every playlist I’ve made in the past week. It certainly has Nicky Romero’s “head-bop” factor, and there’s no question it gives you the itch to move your hips. If you couldn’t tell by now, the theme for this post is pure energy!
Spaceman (Gleb Cosmos Remix) – Hardwell | Download - “Spaceman” has been getting played at EVERY show I’ve seen recently, so I was in need of some musical gatorade to replenish all that had been lost in hearing this track numerous times. Gleb Cosmos hooked me up with a bleepy, electro-infused bass-reduction in order to breathe new life into my love for this jam.
Don’t Let The Music End (Nycer Remix) – Radiokiller | Download (Also available for free from Soundcloud) - Just because your weekend has come to a close, that doesn’t mean the music has to…
Is it really thursday afternoon already? I am pleased to inform you that the answer is yes, and you know what this means… MORE JAMS!! I have been saving some tracks that I came across this week just for this occasion. So without further deliberation, let’s get right down to it…
Unnamed Love (ft. Ellen) – Mike Nielsen & Qulinez - Unfortunately I have no idea whether or not the name of this track is correct, but it does seem a bit suspect. Basically, this is a vocal mix or mash (not sure which yet) of Qulinez’s smash hit “Troll” (got it on repeat right now).
Terrace 5AM (Klaus Goulart’s Rough Air Remix) – Markus Schulz pres. Dakota - Why rough air? If you remember me referring to trance as being representative of “air up there” in nature, then you’ll understand. This song still features airy synths, but they’re a bit more harsh than you might normally hear in trance. Good example of ‘trouse’. Download
Ready 2 Fly (Original Mix) – Deth Hertz & No Body - This song is the epitome of manufactured mayhem; Melodic build cascades unexpectedly into a ravine filled with heavy bass and grinding synths. Masterpiece. Download
Walking Alone (FlameMakers Remix) – Dirty South & Those Usual Suspects ft. Erik Hecht - Now this song may have been beaten to a pulp on EHusky, but I can’t resist sharing a good remix when I hear one. Check it out… (Free DL from Soundcloud)
Praise You Metaphor (Hardwell MashUp) – Dyro vs. Fatboy Slim & Fedde le Grand - This one comes to you from Hardwell’s free bootleg pack, released once he hit 100,000 Twitter followers. We scratch his back, he scratches ours. Funny thing about our back is that it’s located on his turntables. Download the full package of Bootlegs HERE
EHusky Crowd-Pleasin’ Favorite:
Yours Tonight (Original Mix) – Barnett Lobel & Sue Cho - When I heard this song almost a year ago, it was the first time I ever recognized dubstep as a genre possessing qualities which I might enjoy. While it is not, and never will be a favorite genre of mine, this tune opened up many doors. It’s only right that I share it with the EHusky nation. Download
Mashups are the topic of much conversation amongst avid EDM fans. Some love them, some hate them, some think they are just not worth listening to. No matter what category you fall in to, it’s my belief that while mashups may take the least skill to pull off, there are some that are absolutely phenomenal. I can appreciate when two songs are seamlessly blended together as if they were made for each other in the first place. Further, if you DJ, it’s always nice to have a few stellar mashups on deck; This way, the crowd gets to here songs they know, but with a new and interesting twist. Bottom line: Mashups will always have their place in the house music scene, and half of the tracks you hear live are mashups and on-the-spot mixes that will eventually turn into mashups. Give ‘em a chance.
