[MP3] Kue – “Trippin’ Out” + Ylvis vs. Eddie Murphy – “Foxes Like To Party”

It’s been a hot minute since I covered one of my all time favorite producers and remixers, DJ Kue. The man has wisely dropped the DJ from his name and the new Kue moniker is already tearing up originals and re-works. “Trippin Out” is my favorite jam from his recently free My Love Kills EP. Getting all kinds of disco funky for us!

AND THEN he drops this mashup two hours ago! Eddie Murphy’s absolute classic 80s jam becomes the answer to one of the internet’s most pressing questions! Brilliant!

[PLAYLIST] The Best Party Songs of 2012

TheBurningEar's-Best-Party-Songs-2012

2012 was a fantastic year for party songs. It seems that music is having more fun than ever and I couldn’t be happier to share it with you all. We’ve all had some epic parties set to some epic party playlists and tonight is the night to top them all. (Or not, really. Nothing worse than NYE pressure.) So take a trip down the Read more

[REMIX] Childish Gambino – “Heartbeat” (DJ Kue Remix) & Speakers – “And Her Too” (DJ Kue Club Mix)

i was wrong, but would you have listened to you? uh, you were crazy

♫ Childish Gambino – Heartbeat (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!) – Dirty Club Mix

I really haven’t been much into Gambino lately but he sure as hell killed “Heartbeat” at Bonnaroo and now Kue has given the jam his Midas touch for those looking to dance. Plus here is another song I have never heard of that now I listen to all the time thanks to DJ Kue!

♫ Speakers – And Her Too (It’s The DJ Kue Club Mix) (Explicit)

[PLAYLIST] The Best REMIXES of 2012 – Part 1 (Jan-June)

25. Toby Keith – Red Solo Cup (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!) / And suddenly Toby Keith is not only palatable but highly listenable.

24. Y Luv – Never Touch The Ground (Gazzo Remix) / It’s pretty impossible to improve on the original so taking it in a different direction was a wise move. Get pumped!

23. St Lucia – Closer Than This (Viceroy Remix) / How do you make tropical more tropical? Give Read more

[MP3] DJ Kue – “Dynamite!”

i threw that shit before i walked in the room!

♫ DJ Kue – Dynamite!

  • Who: Mike Morales
  • What: “House/Gangsta/Remix”, like XX
  • Where: San Jose, CA + Facebook
  • When: Kue drops beats on the regular.
  • Why: DJ Kue’s tagline has long been “Can’t go wrong with Kue on the remix” and while that is too true, is apparently also true for this original jam of his. His remix wizardry of flipping big pop tracks into limb-loosening dance monsters is alive an well in this big disco house funker. Just be careful when high kicking on the dance floor.

♫ KO KO – Float (Sound Remedy Remix) / When I first listened to this gem of a tune, I new I found my weekend remedy.  Cheers to Sound Remedy.

♫ Dragonette – Let It Go (Faustix & Imanos Remix) / It blows my mind that Dragonette isn’t one of Canada’s most popular bands.  I really think that this original song plus the remixes will move them firmly into that bracket.  This particular remix is a 4-on-the-floor dance floor thumper.  I like.

[REMIX] Toby Keith – Red Solo Cup (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!)

and you, sir, do not have a pair of testicles if you prefer drinkin’ from a glass

♫ Toby Keith – Red Solo Cup (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!)

So there’s this guy called called Toby Keith (or Koby Teith!) and he is apparently mega-famous in some parts of the country but he isn’t as famous as red Solo cups so in an effort to steal some of their popularity he made a song about them. It’s pretty big I guess. It wasn’t until TBE favorite DJ Kue whipped it into a proper party jam that it made it’s way to my ears. He may have improved upon the beats but there isn’t much he could do about those lyrics. They were already perfect.

[REMIX] Example – “Changed The Way You Kiss Me (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!)”

i need a new fun fair cause your scaring me and i don’t like where were going

♫ Example – Changed The Way You Kiss Me (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!)

Example’s “Changed The Way You Kissed Me” was a massive hit last year (I missed it) and now our main man DJ Kue has fixed it up with a new party facelift by cutting the rapping bits, toning down the dubby parts, and cranking up the grooves. Hands in the air!
