Greetings from San Diego… another week has flown by so here are some more songs I have been listening to. There’s not much else to say so let’s get down to the music, and I hope you guys have a great weekend.
Albert Keyn – Rapsody (Dyor Remix) This is hands down my favorite track of the moment. Take a listen to this one with the volume up and I’m sure you will love it too. Absolutely massive!
Swedish House Mafia vs. Tinie Tempah – Miami 2 Ibiza (Sander van Doorn Remix) SHM have been on fire in the electro scene, as shown by the popularity of all their releases. This single received a lot of remix work, with this remix and the Laidback Luke remix being two of the better ones.
Joti Sidhu – Fatso (Original Mix) Here’s a proper track done right by British producer Joti Sidhu. This track is heavy on the psychedelic sound and comes from his new album, titled Order to Chaos.
Jochen Miller – Classified (Original Mix) This is the new theme song for Energy 2011, released on High Contrast Records. Jochen has made some better tracks in the past, but this one is decent, made with a nice blend of techno and trance.
Sied van Riel – Crossroads (Original Mix) Here’s another one that has been stuck in my head for a while. I first heard it in one of Sander’s sets, and it was instantly imprinted into my brain. Nice release from Liquid Recordings.
Bryan Kearney – Goosebumps (Original Mix) This is the latest from Bryan Kearney, released on John O’Callaghan’s Subculture label. Does listening to this track give me goosebumps? Not quite, but it’s still pretty good. There’s also a Sean Tyas remix featured on the EP, and it’s everything you expect from a Tyas production.
Cressida – Breakfast with Zeus (Original Mix)
Here is a nice release from the German Euphonic Records. This isn’t your typical Cressida song, but it has been getting some major play from a lot of DJs.
Genix – Zzubb (Original Mix) Genix has always put out some interesting work, and this one is of no exception. It doesn’t have the typical Genix style, but it does have a great tribal, techy feel to it.
Tempo Giusto – Inside the Bottle (Original Mix)
This is one of my favorite tracks from Tempo’s new album, Premiering In Theaters. It kind of reminds me of Timmy & Tommy – Full Tiltin (JOC Remix), which is a good thing. I recommend that you take a peek at some of tracks from his album because there’s a lot of creativity to be found.
Markus Schulz – Rain (Space Rockerz Remix)
If you are a Markus fan like I am, then this track will need no introduction. He has been playing the Phynn remix as of late, but I like this one a little bit more. The Space Rockerz are from Southern California as well so I gotta represent.
Ashley Wallbridge – Walk On Water feat. Elleah (Original Mix) If I’m not mistaken, this is the second vocal track produced by Ashley Wallbridge (the first being I Believe released in 08). This song has that unmistakable Wallbridge sound which goes very well with Elleah’s voice. The vocalist is a Filipina from California, so congrats to her for breaking through into the market!
Guy Mearns -Quantum (Original Mix)
Here’s a nice one from Guy. On the flipside of the EP is String Theory, which is worth checking out as well.
Unfortunately I didn’t get go to to this year’s party, but here are a few sets from the 2 day event in case you missed any of these DJs. I am still scrounging around for the rest of the sets, so if you come across any that you don’t see here, please let me know! I am particularly interested in the GTR, A&F, Andy C, Bart B More, CLaw, and J00F sets.

The time has come for Pioneer to release its latest works of art, the CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900. Talk about some serious pieces of hardware! Just look at that beautiful LCD screen and glossy black surface. God knows how sexy those track waveforms must look on that 6.1” screen! These babies will probably be at all the nice end clubs by the end of this week, and anyone who gets to play with them should consider themselves to be lucky. With a price tag of $2000 for the 1000 and $1,600 for the 900, these bad boys are definitely not cheap (status quo MK3’s retail for $1,400). Here are some of the features of these music machines:
Multi Format Playback – The CDJ-2000 enables playback of MP3, AAC, WAV and AIFF audio files on CD,DVD-ROM, SD card and USB memory devices.
Pro DJ Link – New Pioneer Pro DJ Link that enables up to four CDJ-2000/900s to beconnected and share a single music source.
6.1” Full Color LCD panel and Graphic User Interface – For displaying song titles, jacket art as well as detailed track information and wave form display of each song so DJs can find informatio nneeded to select a song at a glance.
Needle Search – Helps DJs instantaneously get to a specific part of a song with a simple touch of the Needle Search pad.
MIDI – Users can assign various buttons of the CDJ-2000 to trigger other devices, such as DJ effecters and software with MIDI mapping capability.
Free Rekordbox Music Management Software Included – Both the CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900 turntables include rekordbox, Pioneer’s proprietary music management software that organizes and catalogs a DJ’s entire music library. When music files are imported to rekordbox, the software analyzes each file and prepares them for use specifically with thenew CDJ turntables.
Slip Mode – When activated, Slip Mode silently continues song playback during a loop, reverse or scratch and continues audible playback at the exact time when the loop, reverse or scratch is ended creating smoother transitions.
Advanced Auto Beat Loop – The CDJ-900 generates a four-beat loop at a touch of a button creating acustomized sound to provide more time for DJs to blend in transitioning music
Here’s a testimonial by Armin:
Swedish House Mafia:
Someone please give me $4,000 so I can buy a pair… I promise to play you good music in return =)
