Wolf Colony – “The One” (Adam Johan Remix)

You gotta love when a favorite new remixer discovers a band because he read about them here and then remixes one of their jams and it is awesome. You gotta love it. YOU GOTTA!

Remix Roundup 73 – [5.2.2014]

This is it folks, the official relaunch of the new Remix Roundups. They will be leaner, meaner, and much more frequent! Get into it for the weekend!

Such a killer remix!

Sunset pool parties here I come!

Gotta love the keytar!

Another killer remix from Manu. So smoooth…

A match made in sunset summertime heaven…

[PARTY] Pompeya + Beginners + Adam Johan @ The Spare Room 3/10

Anybody that was reading The Burning Ear back in 2011 knows how much I love Moscow’s Pompeya so it’s no surprise that I’m beyond excited to host them this Thursday at The Spare Room. These guys are finally starting to get the love they deserve and their live set is full of all the big bass grooves and tropical touches that we all love.

We also have Los Angeles newcomers Beginners playing! This EP is so solid and catchy I would make sure you come see them now before they blow up big time.I’ll definitely be singing along up front!

And finally, Los Angeles producer Adam Johan will be spinning between sets and after. Adam caught my ear big time with his Banks remix and between sneaking it into every one of my DJ sets I’ve been getting into his originals as well. Some serious talent here so really looking forward to his sets.


Benzamak & Adam Johan – “Flicker II”

Hot off his killer Banks remix, Los Angeles’ Adam Johan gets together with hometown homie Benzamak on this damn sax-y instrumental track “Flicker II”. Quick, dim the lights! Clothes are about to hit the floor!

Banks – “Waiting Game” (Adam Johan Remix)

[soundcloud id=’137920246′]

There are a lot of reasons to love Banks but one of them is that she provides such a beautifully minimal canvas on which remixers can paint great sounds. Los Angeles’ Adam Johan definitely has some paint under his fingernails with this awesome “Waiting Game remix. Suddenly the heartache isn’t so heavy. There is dance in the sadness. It all feels fucked up now but a couple drinks and a little sweat will make it all go away. And maybe a street hot dog after the club…
