Katy Perry – “Roar” (Wiley Webb Remix)

Katy Perry - Roar (Wiley Webb Remix)

Whether you love or hate the original this big slapping bass remix is damn fresh jam. Wiley Webb knows just how to dial back the pop gloss and scuff up the edges to make it palatable for us non-tweens. Get dirty!

[INTERVIEW + VICEROY ROUNDUP] Its Summer Time with Viceroy

The other night I was up as late as usual, when it came to me.  The thought, “where is the sun in this cloudy city”.  The city I’m referring to is Seattle, a city blessed with more than its share of rain.  It was at this moment I feverishly signed onto Soundcloud to tried to fill the that sunny void in my life.  Enter Viceroy.

Joel: Being from the Seattle area we don’t get a whole lot of sun, so most of the time we have to live vicariously through other people or in my case, music. You seem to have a unique style of production that fits this picturesque image of mine. An image of beaches, pools, fruity drinks, good vibes and most importantly…. loads of women. I know you don’t live in Vegas, so what inspires this style of music for you?

Viceroy: I think my best experiences through-out life always happened in the summer. The summer is something everyone looks forward to and growing up I couldn’t get enough of it. I also find my style of music aka “summer music” to be a style that can be played in all different kinds of settings with all kinds of people. Its multi-functional in that sense, plus who doesn’t love a feel good track? I wasn’t always into feel good music, but when I first explored edm, nu-disco was introduced to me immediately and I fell in love with it.

Joel: Viceroy is an interesting moniker, its more than a dj name, its a ruler of sorts. Can you tell us a little about what Viceroy means to you and your music? Side note: Did you know that Christopher Columbus desperately wanted to be the Viceroy of all discovered lands?

♫ 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.

Dubstep Roundup Vol. 30 – 4.20.2012 [Knife Party, Above & Beyond, Picture Book, Chromeo, and more…]

Its Friday boys and girls; how good it feels.

In the middle of planning my next Lights & Music event, I decided to dust out the old Itunes when I found this dubstep roundup that was meant to go up a few weeks ago.  Sorry about that guys.  I’m still trying to find a balance between all of the projects I’ve taken on in the last year.  This roundup reflects the much more melodic side of dubstep; which frankly is what I prefer.   So, in an attempt to just get this bad boy up on the web waves, I’ll skip the wordiness and just press publish.  Have no fear though, the bass is still there, so turn your speakers up and get down with yourself.

P.S.- I’ll have another Dubstep Roundup up in the next couple days.  Until then…

Its Friday and this is how we do it.  Don’t know about you, but I just got my coffee game on and Im feeling that caffeine high right about now.  Powered right through that 2:30 wall like it was blue cotton-candy.  And I love that shite.  Just marf’n on it.  Anyway, enough of this noise.  Lets be honest, you’re here for the chuneage.
