Just when you thought the winter drag was going to pull you down, we’ve got a special little treat for your iPod. Today, we’re dropping the latest installment in our “Scott’s Selection” mix series. This one’s a little rough around the edges, but the bass is healthy, the synths are sexy, the cuts are classic and the tracks bump! Starts reluctant, goes 128 crazy in the middle, and gets a little filthy at the end — just like the perfect weekend.

Download this mini-mix asap and play it at your next party, tomorrow’s workout, or wherever you feel the need to get lost in EDM!

Sweets of the Week – Friday the 13th Edition

January 13th, 2012

TGIF on what has been a sluggish week. Most people I’ve talked to are still trying to get out of that holiday slump and get the gears moving again. Last weekend, the city of Toronto was pretty much a ghost town where concerts were concerned. While this week definitely has more in the way of shows on offer, the winter grind is in full effect; it might just be easier to turn on the iPod and invite a couple of friends over.

And if that’s your choice, wicked! I got a couple of tracks to keep you warm and toasty!


THE SWEETS

While searching my gallery of songs I noticed that I didn’t have a single remix of this track. For some reason, that surprised me. Natalia Kills‘ anthem “Mirrors” takes on a whole new persona courtesy of Omega.

A track that definitely deserves some recognition. Tommie Sunshine adds a nice up tempo backbeat to what is already an amazing song. Arcade Fire are indescribable.

Arcade Fire – Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) [Tommie Sunshine's Quaalude Edit]: LISTEN TO IT HERE


A little pop never hurt anyone. This track is made for both clubs and radio. With luck, a video will accompany this — because I personally wouldn’t mind seeing Neon Hitch provide some visuals specifically for this track …

Sweden, Sweden, Sweden! They don’t even know how to make an ordinary track. It’s either go big or go home. With industry hotshot Nervo teaming up with Mister-Stadium-Anthem-Only Avicii, there was only ever one possible outcome.

Want to be a successful producer/DJ? Follow the R3Hab formula: consistency! Drop so many tracks that even your haters will be believers. I can smell Pacha in this song!

Two of your favourite artists (kiddddddddddding) … but let’s be honest: Chris Brown and Pitbull are two of the industry’s biggest acts right now. So if you can’t avoid ‘em, join ‘em — preferably with extra bassssssss! Clinton Sparks is a G!

Last but not least, something to really rock to. I love anthems like these: they seem to put a smile on my face no matter where I’m at. Hope it does the same for you! Sound Keepers don’t play around!!

VISUAL SWEETS

I’ve just heard about this song and have already fallen so hard for it. The video is simple but stylish. Gotta love it!
