Brand New

Anytime The Music Phoenix decides to share music that is within the first week of its release, it is still considered “Brand New” to us.

NONONO – Pumpin Blood (The Jane Doze Remix)

0

NONONO

I have been sitting on this remix for too many days, I need to get it out while I can still consider it to be ‘brand new’. All of your attention should be on NONONO and The Jane Doze remix of Pumpin Blood for the next several hours (or at least the first several repeated listens). If you’ve heard the song already (the original that is), you are lucky. I want to say I have to, but honestly I can’t recall. I’ve listened to this remix too regularly to remember much before it! I think she has a distinctive voice (though, this sound is becoming more mainstream than it would have been a few years back). NONONO is from Stockholm, Sweden (there’s the International Tuesday tie-in you were waiting for!), The Jane Doze are however, stateside, hailing from New York. Can someone please tell me how a heart that is a lie can still pump blood?

Mashup-Germany – Hey (What does the fox say)

What the Fox Say - Hey!

Yes, yes, we have all heard about what the fox says and you hate to admit it, but you (not so secretly) love it. Apparently, so does Mashup-Germany because he just released a new mashup that features the many things that the fox says (including Nee Nah Nah Nah). Take it as a highlight reel that you can’t get enough of! For some reason my mind drifts to Riva Starr‘s I Was Drunk when the mashup first starts. Something about that beat; which is actually Milk & Sugar versus Vaya Con Dios – Hey (Nah Neh Nah). Which, the more I think of it, sounds like Yolanda Be Cool’s We No Speak Americano (minus the saxes). But I digress, this is about the foxes after all! Listen for yourself.

Summer11-Skizzy Mars

Skizzy Mars

Happy Tuesday everybody! For those of you that had yesterday off, I hope you accomplished everything you wanted to do! Today I am bringing you a brand new song from one of my favorite up and coming rappers, Skizzy Mars. The track is called Summer11 and is quite catchy. The song begins with a Daft Punk inspired background and soon dives into Skizzy’s rap. What I love about Skizzy is that his songs are upbeat and enjoyable at anytime of the day while you are doing any task. I hope the new tracks keep coming! What do you guys think of Skizzy? Do you like his style? Does he remind you of another rapper?

will.i.am ft. Miley Cyrus – Fall Down

0

will.i.am

I have recently seen a lot of controversy around will.i.am and have been following it. The Huffington Post has a great article on the accusations. The claims are that will.i.am’s song with Chris Brown, Let’s Go, sound remarkably similar to House producers Mat Zo and Arty’s Rebound. His new album is due to come out on Tuesday, April 23rd and on iTunes, the song is question is not currently featured. Could it be related to all the controversy?

Good or bad, any publicity is good publicity and now I know that will.i.am has a new album coming out next week. I like a lot of the songs that he’s been putting out lately. He’s teamed up with Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, and Eva Simons; I’m curious to see who else ends up on the new album. Some say he should stay away from Electronic music, but really, this next generation seems to be gravitating towards EDM and it looks like will.i.am is embracing that fact. I always thought that the Black Eyed Peas were pretty cutting edge and stay ahead of the curve musically. Then Fergie broke off solo, followed by will.i.am and what’s this about him being a coach on the U.K.’s version of The Voice? Yeah, he’s all over the place these days.

Fall Down is his collaboration with Miley Cyrus, a new single released just days ago and I have to say, I’m hooked. It does seem a little weird to think of this song as the two singing to each other. Not quite the pairing I would have expected, for a love song especially. At first, I thought it was Fergie and found myself a little sad when I realized it wasn’t. It has a classical (almost dark) opening and extended ending. But very quickly, the intro shifts with the happy-go-lucky whistling. Simply put, it’s a fun and upbeat song.

Titus Jones – Closer to Kissing Fun Girls

0

titus jones

I know I know, I featured Titus Jones at the start of last week with his mashup, Lick Yr Daughter, but it was more so the PanosT music video edit that got the feature (okay, it was both Titus Jones and PanosT). But now he’s out with a brand new one called, Closer to Kissing Fun Girls; which, without any further details, already sounds like one heck of a song! This features three samples: Tegan and Sara’s Closer, Katy Perry’s I Kissed A Girl, and fun.’s Some Nights. I love the use of Tegan and Sara on this mashup, it reminds me of when I saw them in concert a few months ago! Plus, if you’re not getting how epic the mash is with I Kissed A Girl, then you must not know much about Tegan and Sara – the lesbian twins. Yeah. That’s why Titus Jones earned the extra feature so close to his last one. I see what you did there, and I liked it!

Also, DJ MADA (it’s Adam backwards – cool eh?) has a new remix out there. In fact, he flaunts that not only does he have an eleven year-old student, but he threw this together while teaching his student an example of how remixes, edits and original productions are made. MADA, how did you get such a young student and what do I have to do to get you to teach me to DJ like you!? Looks like I missed my shot when I lived in Denver to have you as a mentor (granted, I’m not 11, far from it actually). If you get a chance to see DJ MADA live, do so. I saw him DJ for Na Palm and enjoyed it so much I sought him out on SoundCloud.

Wolfgang Gartner – Shrunken Heads (Butch Clancy Retwerk)

0

Dotcom - butch clancy

So I decided it was about time we shook up your eardrums with some good ol’ fashioned Dubstep! It’s Wolfgang Gartner’s Shrunken Heads as remixed by Butch Clancy. If there’s one thing we know about Butch, is he certainly brings the bass. There are so many drops in this ‘retwerk’ as he puts it. Not only is it Dubstep, but it falls in the category of Trap music as well. I feel like this needs to be used in the new G.I. Joe movie as the villain’s theme song. Love the kick drum that comes in about halfway through the remix, followed by yet another droooop! This is what it sounds like when you go ‘Beast Mode.’

Another Dubstep track to take a listen to is Wick-It’s VIP version of Dotcom’s Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nothing Ta F’ Wit. First off, it’s Wu-Tang Clan, second, there is no second. Wu-Tang Clan that’s about it. Oh, well I guess the Dubstep makes it just that much more gangsta’. This one isn’t as obviously Trap as Butch Clancy’s in fact, I wouldn’t even consider it to have much of a Trap music influence, though it’s featured briefly. You do need to make sure that you check out the original mix by Dotcom when you get a chance, it is quite the song.

But as long as we’re talking about Dotcom, I would be doing him a disservice if I didn’t bring up his two month old remix of Will.i.Am’s (featuring Britney Spears) Scream and Shout. It takes about a minute for it to ramp up with the drop included, you know what it is… it’s Dubstep time! I love the cover art that is included with this remix too, the screaming face with the crowd that makes fills the face. It’s pretty impressive to look at and says Dubstep all over it.

DJ Tuto – Lights (Steve Angello vs. Krewella vs. Zedd)

0

DJ Tuto

Less than an hour ago, DJ Tuto dropped his latest mashup! It’s been about four months since his last release. DJ Tuto is of San Jose, Costa Rica and has been DJing since 2006. We’ve been following him for a while now and really enjoy his work. Lights uses samples from Steve Angello and Third Party (Lights), Krewella (Alive), and Zedd featuring Foxes (Clarity) as remixed by Walden. I don’t what I like more, the Krewella on this track or Foxes? It is certainly a party anthem of a song and puts me in one heck of an EDM mindset! So much for getting to sleep soon, I’ll be playing this one on repeat for the rest of the night.

Purchase Zedd’s “Clarity” on iTunes, click here to see his Tour schedule. I have no new news on Steve Angello now that the Swedish House Mafia is done touring together (as of Ultra Music Festival in Miami). But, I have good news as it comes to Krewella, they have quite the tour schedule right now. I’m most excited for their Madison, WI show on Thursday, May 2nd – I can’t wait to see them at the Orpheum Theater. Every time I hear a mashup with Krewella lately, it just reminds me that this show is getting closer and closer, May is just around the corner!

Euan Cross – Show Me Boom!

0

Euan Cross

I know I’ve featured Euan Cross, but I can’t seem to find an old article on him (was from before we lost all our old articles when the website crashed). So, that means it’s been well over 6 months since his last feature and with his latest Progressive House tracks, it’s time to change that. Euan Cross is from Aberdeen, Britain and spends some time in Scotland as well. Show Me Boom! takes samples from Boom! by Ivan Gough vs. Stevie Mink and Steve Bleas; plus, Show Me Love by Steve Angello and Laidback Luke featuring Robin S. Once Robin S’s vocals enter into the mashup, it really gets me pumped (granted Boom! is bumping that bass and that also gets ya going) but I like the attempt to bring these two samples together.

Everyone seems to be addicted to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ new album, and particularly his hit single, Thrift Shop. I like seeing mashup artists, like Euan Cross, play with this song in their bootlegs. It’s a fun song and promotes a different message than you’re used to hearing by essentially every Hip Hop artist out there. I Love Thrift Shoppin’ takes the obvious sample mentioned previously, plus I Love It as remixed by Sick Individuals – originally created by Icona Pop. Now that I’ve seen Icona Pop live in concert, I have a new appreciation for their music – even though their set was relatively brief. They rocked the house with I Love It!

Finally, the third mashup here is more than 2 weeks old, but the other two are still within 48 hours, so I can still consider this article ‘brand new’ (two-thirds brand new that is). A Night of Happiness has Steve Aoki’s remix of Kid Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness which makes for a great song no matter what, plus A Night In – the EDC Orlando 2012 Anthem by R3hab. I think three examples of Euan Cross will be enough to tide you over for a while. Follow him on Facebook so you can get updates from him on his latest releases.

Bruneaux & 3LAU – Captivate The Light

0

DJ Topsider 3LAU

There’s something about a whisper that makes even the loudest of audiences quiet down to hear what is being said. Well, Bruneaux and 3LAU have teamed up to do just that, make their collective fans take a break from their busy lives and just… listen. Captivate The Light is a very soothing and calm mashup that takes samples from Deadmau5′s Raise Your Weapon (piano version) and Mimi Page’s Black Valentine (acapella version). It’s so softly done that it actually pulls you in as if it’s telling you a story and the only way to understand it is to be fully engaged. I think I say this so often of Bruneaux’s work, but again, this is simply a beautiful mashup – what music is meant to be!

I figured a great transition would be DJ Topsider‘s Out To Sea (Aestas Prope Est) with samples from One Republic’s If I Lose Myself, which I’m starting to hear a lot more remixes of lately; plus Rundfunk’s A Dream (original mix). This mash has a soft build, which is great to listen to coming out of Captivate The Light. Then the bass kicks in but it’s not over the top, because let’s face it, the vocals are still One Republic and anything more wouldn’t be a good match. Just the right amount of upbeat tempo if you ask me.

Another mashup artist that I frequently talk about but haven’t featured in a few months would be the duo that refer to themselves as Bootleggers Music. In fact, I think I frequently reference them as my source for turning me on to new DJs. I think it’s about time I give them some more love for the work that they do. Their latest mashup is actually nameless as of right now, so I will name it for them: Dani Whistles Some Nights (Anything Could Happen). That’s the best I could come up with in a few minutes and I know it’s a little long for a title but you know it’s pretty good, especially without adding any words. But if you break it down, it includes four samples: Flo Rida, Ellie Goulding, Fun., and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The Early Mourning – Until The End (Rihanna vs…)

0

The Early Mourning

More mashups to help with your Sunday! The Early Mourning is a newly discovered mashup artist out of the United States with GLDN Collective. The GLDN Collective also works with Ricky Cervantes (featured yesterday), RotBott, and various other artists. Until The End is a mashup that takes samples from Rihanna, Kill The Noise, and Dillon Francis. It’s a great bootleg all together, but it’s really the last minute that impresses me the most. It really builds up to a masterful Rihanna remix with the “ella” from Umbrella being sped up and then utter chaos ensues and I absolutely love it!

Guess who’s back? It’s GiObAT from Sicilia, Italy (previously featured about 7 months ago)! He has a brand new mashup out there that needs to be shared. It takes two samples to create it, the original mix Mammoth, by Dimitri Vegas, Moguai and Like Mike plus the acapella of Sofi Needs A Ladder by Deadmau5 featuring SOFI. What does GiObAT think to call it? GiObAT Needs A Mammoth. It’s quite the Progressive House bootleg with tons of EDM sprinkled throughout.

Ricky Cervantes – Better Days (Ellie Goulding vs. Outkast vs. Vanderway)

0

Ricky Cervantes

You had me at Snoopy! I love the cover work first and foremost, even before I started listening to the mashup. You have ‘working Snoop’ thinking of better days when he sat on the doghouse looking up to the stars – where’s Woodstock? Then you hear this mashup of Ellie Goulding, Outkast, and Vanderway, entitled Better Days. Ricky Cervantes, you’ve done it again, I can only imagine what you might create with 2,000 likes! Also, who did your cover work? I think it’s safe to say that we’re all familiar with Ellie Goulding and Outkast, but I am new to this Vanderway character. I had to do a quick search, figured it wasn’t a reference to the PanAm character, Ted Vanderway. Then I found a SoundCloud account for L’ordre and it left me with more questions, but I found the track that is used in the mashup. The track is called, Early, and it is a rocking beat – well, more likely to put you in a drifting dream state. But it is the melody that opens in the first few seconds of Ricky Cervantes’ mashup.

So, Vanderway? Is that like DJ Whatt‘s DOSVEC? An alter-ego selected for specific side projects? Either way, we know that L’ordre is from Toulouse, France – so the answer could be buried somewhere in French. It also appears that he works with artists named Else and Jettune in addition to Vanderway. With all the craze around the recent reemergence of Daft Punk, I thought it was a great time to include Vanderway’s edit of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories. Which has only put us in an even better mood as we anticipate the release of the new album, “Random Access Memories.”
