Claptone - Wrong | Exploited

Without a doubt my new favorite video and song.
SPEAKING of a Dr. Dre beat.....

Sky Ferreira - Everything is Embarrassing (Krystal Klear Remix)

I was so into Sky back in '10 when she had super luscious hair, healthy arms and sang the Beatles over a Dr. Dre beat. She was super cool from NYC, did her own thing, had her own style, and rocked Mary Janes harder than anyone I've seen. Now I have my issues with her. It's kinda sad to see what she's turned into, but whatever her music is still tight as fuq.
This remix rules.

gods of the Scene // Disclosure / Joe Goddard //

Disclosure - White Noise (feat. AlunaGeorge)

I mean it's almost insulting to the rest of us how good these boys are. How do they do it? We'll never know. We'll just sit and listen in bliss and seethe jealousy because we aspiring producers and musicians realize how untalented we actually are.

Arlissa - Sticks and Stones (Joe Goddard Remix)

He is and always will be a god in the music world. He is and always will be my favorite. He is and will be the best show I'll see come April.

FEMALES RULE // Moon Holiday / George Maple / Syron / Alison Valentine / MS MR

Since I'm on my major feminist kick again, because all men are lying sacks of shit who are intimidated by intelligence and dignity, I'm going to put up some of my recent favorites by some lovely ladies who are ruling the music scene.

Moon Holiday - Switching Sides

You first heard her (I assume because it's when I did) on Flume's album on the track "Insane" which was one of the most brilliant off that album. This Aussie beaut has been in the scene for a while now, and her music is so calming and her voice is so smooth, I just can't seem to remove myself from her sound. This song in particular is the definition of appreciation of the simple things in life.

George Maple - Uphill

And yet again, noticed her because of her vocal contribution to "Bring You Down" off of Flume's album. Her voice is one powerful force, and although this may be her only track alone, I can not wait to hear what else this girl has got up her sleeve.

Syron - Here

I called it from day one, this bad b was going FAR. And she has. She rules. She's so well respected, and her music is just getting tastier and tastier. This song could use a DOPE remix by Goldroom or Dippy or someone.

Alison Valentine - Peanut Butter (Moon Boots Remix)

It took me a damn minute and a half to fall in love with this track, but I finally did and now I can't get enough of it. Her voice is so feminine, so light, so perfect. And you can't help but be in a good mood when this remix is playing.

MS MR - Fantasy

Yeah I know it's a guy and a girl, but her soulful voice is enough to speak well of female artists everywhere. Their ego's may be a little giant (I'm still not over his rudeness when we met in Brooklyn), but their music is so damn good.

Dis Be Dat Good Shit // Goldroom / Rita Ora / 2 Bears / Pyramid / Monarchy / Mike Luck

Charli XCX - You (Ha Ha Ha) Goldroom Remix

I mean Josh Legg pretty much knows exactly what he's doing with every song he touches. And somehow listening to every song he touches makes me want to be on South Beach and it makes me feel REALLY happy on the inside.

Rita Ora - Shine Your Light (2 Bears Remix)

2 Bears is greatest duo known to mankind: Joe Goddard & Raf Rundell, the happiest, jolliest DJ's in all the land. OBVIOUSLY anything having to do with Joe Goddard is straight gold to me, and this Rita Ora song was just screaming for an edit. This is definitely on my top 10 right now.

Pyramid - Wolf

o0o0o this one gets my heart going. I mean Pyramid usually does, but this one in particular I don't know it makes me want to go drive a really fast car or rob a bank or something, but with Ralph Macchio back in the 80's.

Monarchy - Disintegration (feat. Dita V T)

UGH Monarchy steals my soul and eats it every time they come out with something new. They are so brilliant and sexy and really know what to do with the human ethos. And Dita, you wicked babe, you. Amazing track, wonderfully done video. All in all, major job.

Monarchy feat. Dita Von Teese - Disintegration (Mike Luck Remix)

And here's a fun remix by Mike Luck who did a really really good job. Good job Mike!

Far East Movement x Rell the Soundbender – I Ain’t Coming Down ft. Mathew Koma & Sidney Sampson (Yeah I’m Trippin Mix)

I have not relapsed into a song like this is a damn minute, but I can't help it with this one. The vocals are sexy, his face is sexy, and I just get way too stoked for festival season when this is rolling.
