If there’s something that electro fans struggle with, it’s communicating their love for the genre to non-electro fans. If you find yourself sympathizing with the aforementioned, look no further than this Ianborg remix to show your non-electro friends. You might even win a few converts!
Ianborg takes Ben Howard’s Old Pine song and does what truly talented DJs do: he creates a new piece of art using an existing piece–without losing the effect of original. Ianborg keeps the dreamy and nostalgic feel of “Old Pines” by carefully selecting and arranging key images in the original songwriter’s lyrics and giving them front stage in the remix. The song opens with a piano accompanying the original guitar work, setting the stage for a gentle transition into the electronic crecendo. The beat never elevates beyond to anything you could dance to, but serves as the perfect backdrop for the vocals to float through. The overall tone of the song would be perfect for a cocktail party with old friends, or the completion of a long night out with new ones.
If you are a fan of the original song, give this remix a whirl. Ianborg has managed to pay homage to this original folky hit while creating something new and remarkable himself.

Dutch DJ superstar, Afrojack just unleashed his newest house banger via his label, Wall Recordings. After a few listens, Rock The House becomes more than just a banger, but a musical journey that leads you through delicate melodies, smooth crescendos, and crashing climaxes. If you’re not into all that sappy stuff though, We’ll put it simply. This jam makes you want to jump. #jumpingjack

It is no secret that Danny Brown dabbles in illicit substances from time to time. On Molly Ringwald, he teams up with super producer Araabmuzik for a track expressing some love for MDMA. Araab goes hard with this beat using his always dope MPC skills. Danny delivers what we have come to expect from him, with an erratic but amazing flow that is all over the place in the best possible way. Some ratchet music that I will be saving for this weekend.

Knife Party’s sound is so dirty I don’t understand how you could even approach remixing one of their tracks without ruining it. The Boomzers proved to me that it is possible, as they enhance Rage Valley in all the right ways. Adding their own filthy spin to the intro with winding wobbles and melodic synth work. The drop is just hectic featuring some epic breaks that allow you fully appreciate love that The Boomzers put into this one. This song is way to dirty and doesn’t let up, definitely put on protection before listening to this one. Cheers.

It’s that time of the year again, where some of the best producers in electronic dance music come together for three nights in Colorado for Global Dance Festival (July 20th, 21st, and 22nd). The highly anticipated festival is known to be one of the best festivals in Colorado, if not the best. Not to mention that the festival is held at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which is a breath taking venue. With the line up this year, it is sure not to disappoint. Friday’s lineup consists of Steve Angello, Knife Party, Hardwell, Felix Cartal, Krewella, and many more. Above and Beyond, Wolfgang Gartner, and Morgan Page, just to name a few that will be gracing the stage Saturday night with their music. Some of my personal favorites that will be playing on Sunday’s insane lineup include Dillon Francis, Adventure Club, 12th Planet, Rednek, and Excision.
If you plan on attending Global this year, make sure to check the set times and plan your night accordingly!

I already thought Ben Howard’s “Old Pine” was a beautiful song on its own. But Australian producer Peking Duk has transformed it into this magnificent-acoustic-happy-summer-dubstep masterpiece. I’m in absolute love right now with this track. The transitions from acoustic to synth, the cheery carefree whistling in the background, and Ben Howard’s signature mellow vocals enhance any sunny summer day for me in LA, and I’m sure that will apply globally as well. There’s a wonderful minimalistic quality to the track that makes it easy to appreciate for all listeners. I haven’t been following Peking Duk much, but after this one, I’m gonna be keeping a close eye on seeing what he’s offering to the music world.
Peking Duk’s remix of “Old Pine” is available for free download on his soundcloud. Go grab it!
