The Best Songs of 2010 for Shaking Your Ass/Rump/Donk/Moneymaker/What Your Mama Gave You: A New Years Eve Collection

The year comes to a close tomorrow and it’s time to start compiling those “Best Of” lists we all love. What better way to kick things off than with a mega-mix of the year’s best ass-shaking jams. Those tracks that just take a hold and force you to dip that hip, and just in time for New Year’s Eve!

Some are originals, some are remixes, and some are mashups. It’s no means a definitive list nor are the tracks in any sort of ranking. These are the tracks that have gotten my blood pumping all year long and so what better way to celebrate them than letting them ring in the new year! More specific lists coming once the year actually ends!

I’ve broken them down into three parts for easier navigation. If these lists were hot sauces they would Read more

[LP] ROBYN can HANG WITH ME anytime

i know what’s on your mind, there will be time for that too

♫ Robyn – Hang With Me

The stripped down version of “Hang With Me” from Body Talk Pt. 1 is a favorite highlight of the disc and so naturally I was hesitant to embrace this dancier update. However, after seeing Robyn crush it live on Friday I am now sold on it’s value, either way you play it. Robyn took the stage at Warsaw’s Free Form Festival (a night that included an amazing performance from KAMP!) and immediately had the whole place bumpin’ and jumpin’. The girl knows her shit and her backing band of various bearded Swedes did a fine job of bringing the jams to life. Needless to say it was an epic night! It’s just too bad that Body Talk Pt. 2 isn’t as good as the first installment. The tracks all seem to be a bit tamer and bring less funk to the table. It’s definitely good stuff, it’s just that Pt. 1 was great. She is really going to have to up her game if she wants Pt. 3 to get any kind of heavy rotation. It’s just too easy to get bogged down with 3 releases in one year! Anyway, while we wait for Pt. 3 there is at least this fun collaboration with Snoop Dogg who just seems to make everything better!

♫ Robyn – U Should Know Better (Featuring Snoop Dogg)

Remix Roundup Vol. 27 – 10.1.2010 / Joel and Scott present [Robyn, Memory Tapes, The Killers, and more!]

It’s Friday and you all know what that means….  We, Joel and Scott are back to fill your eardrums with some epic jams.  As you know our cold lockers are packed to the gills with devastatingly heavy dubstep sounds.  More than the same can easily be said about our non-dubstep chunes.  In fact, we are getting harassed for disturbing the peace and toxic contamination of our surrounding environment by our local environmental officials.  Oooops.

Shout out to all the support we been receiving from Copenhagen to New York and around the world.  We love hearing from you guys.

Nyd Det, Disfrute, Enjoy

♫ Coeur de Pirate – Comme Des Enfants (Le Matos Andy Carmichael Remix) / We always heard growing up that boys care more about beats and melodies, and girls pay more attention to lyrics and such.  The truth is that we don’t understand a damn word this girl is singing, but we couldn’t care less because this is nothing short of magic.  So, for now the theory stands.

♫ Robyn- Dancing On My Own (Buzz Junkies Club Mix) / Hailing from the UK buzz Junkies remind us here why we started listening to electronic music.  From the house beat to the flashes of old school techno, this song is right up our alley.  This friends is a proper dance tune.  (BTW its Friday so enjoy)

♫ Big Boi- Shutterbug (Jack Beats Remix) / We stumbled upon this the other day and flipped shit.  Jack Beats have tackled a giant of a tune.  Big Boi’s Shutterbug is one of the nastiest we’ve heard from the rap game in a long time.  So we thank you, Jack Beats, for bringing it to our dance floor.

♫ Memory Tapes- Bicycle (Little Loud Remix) / Ahhh yes.  Like a brisk jog on a fall morning this song just hits the spot and starts your day right.

♫ The Girls Can Hear Us- Drugs, Dancin’ (The Dirty Tees & SposhRock Remix) / Don’t be surprised to hear this remix in the clubs as The Dirty Tees & SposhRock do their damage and turn this track into electro club heat.  And lets be frank, everyone loves a song about the Rock-Star lifestyle of sex, drugs, and Rock N’ Roll (in this case, dancing).

♫ The Killers- Smile Like You Mean it [TGIK Broken Heart Mix] / I sat here and thought of a very deep and meaningful description for this song, and then realized that a simple “WOW” would suffice.  This song has always been special, but it has taken on a new life here.  Boys and girls this is perfection.

♫ Deluka- Cascade (Kids At The Bar Remix) / OK Cities gnarly’st producer/DJ combo, Kids At The Bar, are constantly on the grind and never fail to deliver. Here we have another rug cutting remix of Deluka’s Cascade.  Look for KATB’s debut EP to drop sometime in October on KillPop Records, a must have.

♫ Rosanna- Waterfall (Fear Of Tigers Remix) / Inside this remix Glitter Pixies are flying over head and showering everyone with gold dust. Oh, and we both thought of Kelly Kapowski when this one dropped. Fear of Tigers, you hurt so good!

♫ Sneaky Sound System- 16 (Flight Facilities Remix) / What is already a knockout song has been sent to the next level via first class. Flight Facilities, playing well with Miss Connie Mitchell’s amazing vocals and providing 16 with a voluptuous new baseline leaves us with nothing but a smile when looking at, we mean listening to, this wholesome beauty. Enjoy!

♫ Kanye West- Power (DJ Kue Remix) / Here is an example of DJ Kue doing what he does best, banging the mainstream straight out and setting a tune on fire! Kanye West, amidst a super emo comeback, has a lot of new music dropping sure to be mixed, and so far we like what we hear.

♫ Supplicant- Lifeline (Kaskade Mix) / Supplicant, a brand new group based out of Hollywood, California, reminds us of a modern day Depeche Mode. So here we have new talent meeting legendary producer/DJ Kaskade. We don’t usually dip into this area but Kaskade’s touch is too much to ignore.

BONUS: Two mashup jams

♫ Lady Gaga vs Madonna- Alejang up (DJs From Mars Remix) / If you didn’t think it was possible  Djs from Mars prove here that there is room for music icons Lady Gaga and Madonna on the same track.  Are we fans…  lets just say we are haters of the Lady Gaga haters.  Another score for Djs from Mars.

♫ Kaskade vs. Swedish House Mafia- Fire In Your New Shoes vs. One / Kaskade vs. Superstar Dj trio Swedish House Mafia (Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sabastian Ingrosso) all on one track for your listening pleasure?  Yes please.  This mashup will provide you electrifying eargasms all night long.

Next Friday look forward to your bi-weekly slap in the face with Vol. 2 of our new “Dubstep Roundup” series.

The 25 Best Songs of 2010… So Far (Jan-June)

As I’ve been compiling this best songs list I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be a great track. Last year I went by play counts to determine what songs I “loved” the most but this year I noticed that the list that came out didn’t really match my perception of my favorites. A lot of my top played songs this year are indeed great songs, but they also happen to be on a great album so they get played by themselves as well as in the course of the album. So I got to thinking about which are the tracks that I seek out, that I crave, that I have to hear every night before bed or every morning to wake up. Those are the songs that make up this list. Songs that for whatever reason hooked me to the point where I need(ed) them in my life this year. Those great albums (and their highlight jams) will get their moment but for now we celebrate the song, or as Read more

Remix Roundup Vol. 23 – 6.18.2010 [Oasis, RAC, Crystal Castles, Tokyo Police Club, Major Lazer]
