The Monday Mash

A haunted weekend has passed, full of horror films starring B-list actors and lots and lots of fake blood. Just as many Halloween parties featuring club smoke, gummy worms and a battle for the best costumes. A lot of good concerts as well, especially in the Toronto area, as both Annie Mac and Madeon entertained crowds thanks to Embrace Presents.

Halloween is always a weekend crowded with events. Sometimes you just don’t have enough time and you’re forced to miss an event you were dying to see. Every time Annie Mac in town, you can pretty much guarantee that I’m there. It was not to be this year, and I’m still upset about that. All the same, I got to attend a lot of events and heard an awesome selection of new songs. Here are some of the bigger ones I came across.

The first is a nice little remix of Tiësto’s “Maximal Crazy” by Bassjackers. They’ve been absolutely killing it of late, and this is no different.

Tiësto – Maximal Crazy (Bassjackers Remix): LISTEN TO IT HERE

Kylee Swenson’s vocals are heaven-sent in this track remixed by Kids at the Bar. Enjoy!

Dan Sena – Song Of Siren Ft. Del The Funky Homosapien & Kylee Swenson (Kids At The Bar Remix): LISTEN TO IT HERE

A new one just in time for Call of Duty: MW3. Put on your gas masks and play this at 1 a.m. when you go online to snipe the Spetsnaz.

F.O.O.L – The Beginning (Original Mix): LISTEN TO IT HERE

And a little mainstream feel for you right now. I’m a huge fan of DJ Kue’s remixes (Lady Gaga‘s “Monster” and B.O.B.’s “Beast Mode” being among those that stand out). Now the four-eyed spinner is back with another batch — again taking on popular songs. Have a listen if you like — if not, no harm no foul. Very urban influenced here.

Nicki Minaj ft. Rihanna and Metafisix- Fly (It’s The DJ Kue Remix!): LISTEN TO IT HERE

Nicki Minaj feat. Drake – Moment 4 Life (DJ Kue Remix) – Dirty: LISTEN TO IT HERE 

Brooklyn is my new favourite borough in New York and Savoy reps the BK just right.

Savoy – California Dreamin: LISTEN TO IT HERE

Deadmau5 this week……………..xx

Also in the pipeline for a late-June release: the self-titled debut album from mysterious South London producer SBTRKT, one of the fastest-rising stars of the UK bass music scene. If you want a taste (avec Canadian content!), check out this remix of the album’s lead single “Wildfire,” featuring Toronto’s Drake and Yukimi of Swedish electro-poppers Little Dragon.
