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

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

So far, this year has been one of the best for remixes, making this list no easy feat. Speaking of feet, you should warm them up because they will moving in a second…

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

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

Lets not talk about the fact this year is already half over. Thats just insane. About as insane as the quality of jams that have been pumping through TBE HQ’s speakers these past 6 months. Here is the best of the best. Did I miss any? Did you miss any?

25. My Great Ghost – Plain Sight / A pulsating, haunting, and thoroughly beautiful journey.

24. Purity Ring – Obedear / Slightly creepy. Very ominous. Highly Read more

[MASHUP] The Hood Internet – See Youth (Usher vs Santigold) & Singlekiss (R Kelly vs Lemonade)

don’t talk about it, be about it

♫ The Hood Internet – See Youth (Usher vs Santigold)

I already said it but apparently it bears repeating: The Hood Internet are baaaaack. Party on.

♫ The Hood Iternet – Singlekiss (R Kelly vs Lemonade)

[REMIX] Usher – “Climax (Billy Webber Remix)”

you say it’s better if we love each other separately, i just need you one more time

♫ Usher – Climax (Billy Webber Remix)

Sorry Justin but this year Usher brought sexy back. And back. And now back again. This time it’s got the dance jitters and wants your hand.

[REMIX] Usher – “Climax (Kaskade Remix)”

love is the cloud that keeps raining down

♫ Usher – Climax (Kaskade Remix)

If there was one dude I kept hearing about at Coachella it was Kaskade. The guy seems to be taking over the world and fair enough because any DJ cool enough to release their whole Coachella set for free download is good in my book. It doesn’t hurt that he just whipped this year’s ultimate slow burner into a bit more of a bonfire frenzy. Any good climax is preceded by highs and lows, ups and downs, and this one has plenty. Ride it!

[VIDEO] Usher – “Climax” (Prod. by Diplo)

Damn this song is good. Usher just kills it. And woah Diplo. See what happens when you put down the airhorn! Straight stunning magic in this song. The video is standard R&B shenanigans but it does confirm that Usher is still sexy as hell.

Dubstep Roundup Vol. 29 – 3.10.2012 [The SoniXx, The Roots, Skream, Guinevere, and more…]

Ch-ch-yeah.  Your favorite dub-dealer is back with those bass chunes.

Im down here in beautiful Austin, Tx (although the weather is miserably raining today) getting ready for our TBE Showcase.  This city takes on what is just an electric life during SXSW.  So many people and so much to do, the possibilites in this town are endless.  If you havent been, I highly recommend it.  Im about to go pick up Brandon up at the airport in about five minutes; which by the way, we’ve never met before.  I’ll update you on whether we want to punch each other in the faces tomorrow or not.

On with the jams.

♫ The Sonixx ft. Laura Newman – You Dont Like Me /  Its exciting for me to see the artists we cover grow and do big things.  Last week Gigamesh released his debuted music video- this week we’ve got The SoniXx releasing his first video.  Check it out below.

♫ Eminem – Lose Yourself (Cry Wolf Remix) / The last of rather impressive set of remixes by Cry Wolf.  You can catch bass lords Cry Wolf at out SXSW Showcase closing out both Friday and Saturday nights.
