There’s nothing quite like stumbling across unknown artists. Not having any preconceived notions associated with a name or an image really allows you to just take it all in. It’s one of our favorite parts about this gig.
Case in point: this debut single from Gold Coast native San Mei. The driving rhythm, playful synths, and subtle yet rich layering of sounds provides the perfect back drop for the echoey vocals. This is the first we’re hearing of San Mei, but we can’t wait to hear more of what she has to offer.
Keep tabs on her by liking her facebook page.
While there’s little out there on Gent Mason, knowing who his mentor is already has us intrigued. This London based producer spent time working with Jimmy Douglas, the man who worked with Timbaland for more than a decade on records for Aaliyah, Missy Elliot, Timberlake and Jay Z to name a few.
“Head” is a seductive, glowing downtempo track with sultry vocals and a reptitious beat that makes for a perfect play with your lady or dude friend. Open up a bottle of wine, throw this on and have yourself a fun Saturday night. Just spare us the details.
What is up, ninjas? For all of you die hard CFPP fans, we’re sorry we didn’t put together a playlist last week. We hope you enjoyed our EDM Mega Summer Playlist, which offered up 120+ tracks of pure dance greatness. If you somehow missed that, check it out when you get a chance. It’s pretty damn epic.
Now that we’ve hit Friday on a short week, it’s time to start thinking ahead to what kind of weekend adventures await. As you ponder your partying plans of grandeur, hit play and get some inspiration.

Shut Up & Sing V2.0 v Greta Svabo Bech
These two Canadians have been taking over the music scene for the past four years and are not stopping anytime soon. There sound is immediately recognizable and on the same said uniquely individual. The boys are renowned for their heavy beats and memorizing electronic melodies. With their latest release “Shut Up & Sing”, the duo take their music one step further and breath a slow tantalizing breath into every listener’s lungs.
Remember that stunning voice that tickled your eardrums in Deadmau5’s “Raise Your Weapon”? Well she is Scandinavian singer Greta Svabo Bech. She and Zeds Dead met and realized they were both huge fans of one another and so, they planned to work together. Greta sent ZD this song and the guys knew immediately this was what they would collab on. “Shut Up & Sing’ is about feeling trapped in a situation and finally working up the courage to do something about it, even if you don’t know what you’re gonna do,” Greta explains. “Zeds Dead’s version of the song really hits this message home. The energy, the melodies – it’s powerful.
And powerful does not even begin to describe everything this song carries.
For awhile there, it almost seemed as if Coldplay had lost themselves (no pun intended). While Viva La Vida was still an excellent album, and Mylo Xyloto had its moments, their recent material has lacked the same substance to it that netted the band success in the early 2000’s. “Atlas” seems to signal a turnaround for the group, as they finally return to their roots on this brilliant piano ballad. Soaring records like “Paradise” and “Life In Technicolor II” test the limits to which Chris Martin can stretch his vocals, but it’s melodies like this that truly allow us to explore the subtleties of his voice. Lyrics have also always been a strong suit of Martin’s, so it’s no surprise that he excels again here with an uplifting chorus that has him belting out “Carry your world, I’ll carry your world.”
“Atlas” marks a move in the right direction for the London quartet, which makes us hope that a new album is in the works. In the meantime though, you can find this one on the soundtrack for the upcoming film, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which will be in theaters on November 22nd.

AllNight- Mile High ft. Laura Brehm (Paris Burns Remix)
Back in the middle of July, Global Dance Music Festival took over the Red Rocks of Colorado for three whole days.
Today, Colorado natives Paris Burns released their remix of the GDM anthem “Mile High”.
If anyone has been to Red Rocks to experience an EDM show, this song will speak to all those volumes. Paris Burns turns up the heat on this song, adding their own heart pounding electronic beats to coordinate with the vocals of other Colorado native Laura Brehm.
Representing their state, the boys can proudly say this song is Mile High every night.
