A classic masterpiece by Sir Elton John, sang by the beautiful and incredibly talented Ellie Golding, and now remixed by Detriot dubstep producer and Music Ninja favorite Butch Clancy. I almost feel no need to even review the track because all these three put together automatically mean that you are about to listen to a gorgeous track. Sure enough Butch Clancy delivers once again with a smooth and respectfully artistic remix of “Your Song”.
Well ninjas – it’s Friday, and you’ve made it through yet another week of work. You’re only moments away from cutting loose and getting down, and with that in mind, we bring you the latest installment from the LA based mashup DJ/Producer, Z-Trip.
With this remix, Z-Trip has taken the pop-collaboration “T.H.E” from will.i.am, Mick Jagger, and J Lo. The original will get playtime because of the sheer star power, but this remix deserves plenty of attention too. Z-Trip has added in some of his own synths, and given the song a much dancier tempo. But the best part is after the 2:30 mark when Z-Trip brings in the guitars from the Stone’s “Gimme Shelter”. It adds another layer of depth onto the original which makes the song that much better.
Have fun out there tonight. Don’t drink and drive.
It’s pretty hard to mention electronica music in the city of Denver without automatically thinking of Dragon and Jontron. While Dragon’s career is substantially longer than Jontron, but Jontron has already made quite the name for himself as well. Together, the two have been creating monster tracks, and tearing up dance floors as a DJ duo.
This track was a little mashup they did as a free giveaway for their Facebook fans. Simply put, it’s their combination of Deadmau5′s Aural Psynapse and Dirty South’s Walking Alone. Enjoy the ride.

Indie duo Brian Holl and Eric Hillman, known musically as Flights, have combined their wits to craft a debut album that soars, sings, and practically embodies the feeling of flying.
The album, relevantly titled Anywhere But Where I Am, is a mix of influences that range from Radiohead to Bon Iver and combine the best traits of both. The guitars are some of the cleanest and most thoughtful parts that I’ve heard in a while, taking precedent without stealing the show entirely. The pianos are a nice touch too and help to change the pace of the album. The introductory track “From The Lake To The Land” is my favorite but songs like “Where The Willow Tree Died” and “Anywhere But Where I Am” shine equally as bright. Remember to keep your tray tables in the upright and locked position and, most of all, enjoy the Flights.

One listen to London based Mat Zo’s EP, Bipolar, and you can say with confidence that this kid has talent. And even beyond listening to his EP, seeing him live only confirmed that. We recently caught his set at Beta Nightclub, and we can tell you that hearing is beautifully composed progressive house on the Funktion-Ones was something every dance music lover should hear.
These are clips from each of the tracks, which are all available now on Beatport. The title track, Bipolar, was our favorite out of the bunch. The soft synths that waver in and out are masterfully composed, and while the track is a progressive house jam, it still has enough to make you want to get up and dance.
The Gorillaz, Andre 3000 of Outkast and James Murphy of LCD Soundsytem have teamed up to release, ‘DoYaThing’ a collaborative track to promote new Gorillaz-themed Converse shoe.
After much anticipating, a radio rip of the track has made it on the internetz. The official release will be tomorrow through Converse website. Enjoy
DJ/Producing veteran Tommie Sunshine has teamed up yet again with Disco Fries to bring us the massive collab track, ‘Don’t Look Back’. A disco house thrill ride that feels very nostalgic to a previous, much funkier era. “Don’t Look Back” is out today along with a huge collection of remixes by Rogerseventytwo, DSKOTEK, KitSch, Polymath and even a dub version from Tommie and Disco Fries.
The remixes are incredibly wide in range, you have DSKOTEK going completely filthy into the electro world, Polymath’s experimental nature coming through into a minimalistic rendition of ‘Don’t Look Back’, a big room feel with KitSch and our favorite, the progressive track Rogerseventytwo.
