[Show Review] Dillon Francis – Boulder, CO

Nicky Romero Ft. Nervo
Like Home (Dillon Francis Remix)

For a guy who started off making music in his parents guest house, Dillon Francis has come a long ass way in the past year exploding onto the music scene with his catchy, body dancing sound.

Taking the stage in Boulder on Thursday, Dillon’s bright white hair and his pearly white smile beamed as he gazed around the many fans crowded into the Boulder Theater. And then, the beats began. Dillon has such a stage presence about him, he’s always rocking along with his music, smiling and singing along with the lyrics in his remixes. He was right to take the huge risk on music and it is paying off one hundred times over. The crowd was constantly moving, girls were screaming at the top of their lungs and many fans were finding themselves lost in the lights and the captivating rhythms. Dillon dropped his new remix of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” which added even more catch to the already catchy song. Dillon has the ability to take any song and put his own charm into it. Thanks for the smiles Dillon, keep rocking that sunshine hair, just makes you that much brighter.

[EP Review] City 17 – Ignite it


DJ Duo City 17 made a huge splash in the EDM world by recently winning the Lights All Night Festival contest and landing a chance to play with the likes of Tiesto, Zedd, and Avicii. So, just how did this LA/Seattle based DJ duo win the contest? Well, it was with a last minute submission with the title track off this EP, “Ignite It”. Thankfully for Felipe Pereira and Justin Anderson they decided to enter!

The title track, “Ignite It” is an electro house gem that has poppy build with addicting vocals, a driving beat, and crunchy electro synths. It’s the perfect track to showcase their abilities to blend memorable melodies with aggressive dance riffs. It’s a sound that would be sure to draw people in to the dance floor and provide energy to keep them moving.

The other track that we particularly enjoyed was their vocal dubstep track, “Wage War”. It features a smooth build-up that focuses on Tatiana Lepsch’s vocals, which leads into a razor sharp drop that is a will make the crowd do some serious fist pumping.

If you dig City 17′s tunes, make sure to head over to Beatport and pick up a copy for yourself.

Tom Swoon (feat Amba Shepherd) – Not Too Late (Bassnectar & PatrickReza Remix) [FRESH]

Tom Swoon
Not Too Late (Bassnectar & PatrickReza Remix)

Extending their working relationship one step further, Bassnectar collaborates with LA producer PatrickReza for another compulsively seductive remix. The track “Not Too Late” by Tom Swoon and featuring the vocals of Amba Shepherd has fallen victim to the creative ideas of this synergistic partnership. Bringing in an array of revolving wobbles over a landscape of melodic noise, it is really the continued use of Amba’s vocals that make this track stand out.

The song can be purchased on Beatport Today via Ultra Records

Lazerdisk Party Sex Interview + Ticket Giveaway – Miami, 3/15


Strange name? Yes. Undeniable talent? Yes. Storm Trooper masks? You bet. Lazerdisk Party Sex has a lot to offer, which is why we’re more than excited to see them tear the walls down at Project Miami this coming Friday. The LA based DJ/Producer duo has been dropping some amazing remixes for the past few years. Their style is anything but conventional, walking a thin line between electro pop, house, and moombah. In a nutshell, these guy’s throw down dance inducing party tracks.

We wanted to get a little insight into the masked marauding DJs, so we fired over a few questions to get a better understanding of these up and coming musicians. Before you dig too deep into the interview though, make sure you scroll down and see how you can get into their next show, in Miami.

TMN: Right off the bat, we have to know how you guys came up with your moniker.

We came up with “lazerdisk” because it was a failed technology, and we weren’t too confident that this project was going to go anywhere. We had our friend announce us before the show, and he added “party sex” to the name, and we just kind of rolled with it.

TMN: What brought the two of you together? Were you friends beforehand? Did you reply to a Craigslist ad?

We were both living in Burlington, Vermont, and we ended up becoming friends through DJing around town. When the opportunity came to join forces, we decided to give it a shot. We didn’t do a craigslist ad, but that’s a pretty good idea for recruiting background dancers or for a huge posse or something.

TMN: So, you’re getting ready to head to Miami for all of the craziness of Ultra and WMC. What does it feel like for you guys to be a part of the biggest week in EDM?

It feels great man in all seriousness, we’re honored and humbled.

TMN: What has been your favorite show to date? Any in particular that stand out above the rest?

Snowball music Festival 2010. It was our first big out of town show. We were extremely nervous. Chad couldn’t eat, I couldn’t form complete sentences. We only had one release out at the time, so we were set to make a lot of first impressions. Granted we had the smallest stage tent but we had a packed room. And the kids seemed to love our set. Super fun.

TMN: Alright, let’s change it up a little. If you were on a deserted island, and could only have one artist’s musical collection in your ipod, who would it be?

Zack: A Tribe Called Quest. I started listening to them when I was 11 and still do to this day. Each album holds a special place and time for me in my life.

Chad: Hmmm, I don’t know. This question is too tough. I would probably bring some soca or calypso music or something. Something to enhance the island vibes, ya dig?

TMN: Another random one. This is a little off the wall, but we love hearing people’s responses. If your music were an animal, what would it be?

Space Whale.

TMN: Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us! We can’t wait to see your set this Friday.

Sure thing there, bub. We’re excited too!

Modulation – The Shire (Synchronice Remix)

The Shire (Synchronice Remix)

There is something about the younger generation of musical artists these days, they have a drive to do more, a desire to make amazing music and a certain hustle. The boys of Synchronice are no exception they are a direct definition of hustlers. Their latest song to hit the airwaves is a remix of Modulation’s “The Shire”, a catchy tune with up and down beats making for a reach your hands to the sky song. Synchronice puts their own spin on the song, incorporating some echoes and a repeating bundle of drum beats before letting all music take loose at 1:29. The boys keep a light feel throughout the song though, mixing a chorus of vocals in with hard hitting drum beats and electric chords. This song just is another example of how big these two brothers are becoming and this year they keep that young musical artist blood on a hustle level.

PatrickReza – BANG! [Dubstep]

PatrickReza - BANG! download

With all the successful remixes, from Purity Ring, Florence and The Machine to Ellie Gouliding herself, PatrickReza has captivated the dubstep scene in the surprisingly short amount with his talent alone. Today, instead of giving us a soothing and melodic dubstep remix of an indie track, the young producer from LA is ready to provide an original piece to his now impressive repertoire. Bang! is a sonic blitzkrieg of strong uncompromising wobbles that play homage to the very roots of the earlier underground scene that was dubstep but with a renewed and modernized sound.

The evolution and growth from PatrickReza is becoming more apparent with every single release, and we couldn’t be more excited to where he is going. Head over to his soundcloud for more.
