Joel’s Summer/Birthday Mix 2011 [Calvin Harris, LMFAO, Empire of The Sun, Lady Gaga, and more…]

Ahhh the wonders of summer.  A time for great tunes, butterflies, unicorns, puppies, summer flings, confetti birthday cakes, cookies and all your favorite things.

Maybe most importantly, its for Getting Nurdy and Party Rock Shuffling your faces off.

This special time of year begs for a soundtrack.  So, I thought, what better day to post something as monumental and life altering as my summer mix, then on the most important day of the year.  MY BIRTHDAY!

♫ ROGÉ – Got Me By The Beat

The West African born Kacou Rogé Charles Assouan, better known by his stage name Rogé, was recently introduced to me by his friend and my cousin Brady.  While I trust Brady’s musical taste, their friendship admittedly caused me to approach the situation with skepticism.  The idiom “if I had a nickle” fits perfectly, but I was certainly intrigued and had to listen.  Long story short, my new curiosity of Rogé didn’t kill the cat, it made it funking BOOGIE.  The synth laden beats of “Got Me By The Beat” should be burning holes in dance floors across the nation.   How does this guy have only have 69 fans on Facebook???  His EP titled The Party Dont Stop shows off his potential and is available for streaming on his soundcloud.  Im also especially digging his other track ‘Together”.  Its been about a year since his last release, so hopefully we’ll  get to hear a full length album in the near future.  Until then listen, dance, and keep it Nurdy.
