Firstly, let me apologize for my ridiculous absence from the blog.
Okay Ultra Fest Miami is this weekend, and I would probably cut out my eye if I could go. I'm banking on one last resort (my sister who spoils me) and hoping that she'll understand how long I have been waiting (my whole life) to go to Ultra and be my savior. ANYWAY. There are so many freaking new remixes out by the DJs who are spinning at Ultra to hype people up, and it's starting to stress me out. I almost had a panic attack today when I stumbled through an unnamed blog through hypem and saw about 30 different remixes added TODAY. I can't handle this through a computer, I just need to experience it all live. And I don't have enough time to go through all of these remixes, plus a lot of them are like...very basic and not that exciting and they seem like they didn't really take that much time to be put together....(no offense, actually, yeah take offense and fix it.) But I did collect some decent ones, and hopefully I'm listening to these getting myself psyched up for a reason....come on Kate pull through.
MSTRKRFT - Beards Again
MSTRKRFT!!! Oh my goodness, I have not heard anything new from them in far too long of time. I was SO excited when I saw this, the song is great, and there's a pretty sick transition in the song. They were by far the best show I have ever been to. Over the year or so I've collected a couple of Death from Above 1979 songs, which I have previously blogged, but MSTRKRFT being back in action helped complete my week. If I get to go to Ultra I will see them thereee! Check out a sweet interview with JFK here.
Professor Green - Monster (Camo & Krooked Remix)
I mean it's okay. I like Professor Green, and this remix is pretty hard. The beginning is nice and easy, and I feel as though maybe they should have controlled the drop a little bit better, but this is definitely good dubstep.
Benny Benassi feat. T. Pain - Electroman (Congorock remix)
You may like the original the best, but after listening to like the 70+ remixes that stemmed from it, this one became my favorite. Absolutely amazing build up, totally gets you revved up, and the drop is decent, second one is better, especially when they ad the drum beat.
Lady Gaga - Baby I Was Born This Way (Dada Life Remix)
THIS is what I'm freaking talking about when I am looking for a song to stoke you out for a festival like Ultra. The first drop is okay, but the SECOND DROP. HOLY MOTHER. It's one of the most exciting build ups and releases I have heard in quite a minute. Almost ALMOST comparable to the Fenech Soler remix to Hollywood by Marina and the Diamonds. Almost.
Avicii - ID
I don't know why this is so short. But it's suuuuper good feeling, and makes me want to dance super badly.
Deadmau5 - HR 8938 Cephei
This is freaking long. But this is the shit I would die to see live. Just being surrounded by a ton of people with the beats taking over your body and the lights matching up. UGH, I would die.
Deadmau5 vs Far East Movement - Ghosts on a G6 (Basic Physics Remix)
Well the first vid I saw from last years Ultra had the Ghosts and Stuff song to it, and I always had a weak spot for the beat of G6. So them being mashed together made me extremely excited.
