“OK ROLL THE DRUMS” … and boom! An orgy of sounds! I love love love this track by Toronto’s Autoerotique, and that goes double for this remix courtesy of Clockwork. The union of Marissa Jack‘s vocals and the blistering “Roll The Drum” rhythm absolutely blows me away. Her sweet, euphoric voice is such a perfectly harmonious compliment to the hard, grimy beat, I couldn’t help but press repeat several times.
If you like this, kids, you’ll want to check out Felix Cartal‘s remix of the same track. GET IT HERE.

We take a break from Porter Robinson week to give you our latest edition of Scott’s Selections. Our mini-mix for June is 17 minutes of the freshest bangers on the planet: a collection of tracks that will turn your party into a rager in a matter of minutes. Brodinski, Felix Cartal, and Pleasurekraft are just a few of the artists to make this month’s cut. Download the mix from SoundCloud, then grab the tunes you like at Beatport.
Just a quick reminder: if you haven’t already, be sure to pick up Autoerotique‘s new EP, EKG — out today on Dim Mak records. These Toronto natives need no introduction, and the EP needs no extra praise from me. “Roll the Drums” is already turning into a cult classic, and the unofficial video below, posted by Autoerotique on YouTube, delivers chills and thrills of its own. The EP is well worth purchasing for this track alone — but when you add the delicious bonus of remixes by Clockwork and Felix Cartal, you’ve got yourself a definite keeper.
So this week I focused on the UEFA EURO 2012, a tournament many say is harder to win than the World Cup. A good chance to take a look at some of the powerhouse nations in the EDM game and see just how many A-list artists they’ve got on the roster.
With all that said, though, it bears pointing out that North American is making a pretty convincing bid for EDM supremacy, too. This week, in fact, we have one of the year’s biggest fests taking place down in Vegas. Electric Daisy Carnival is finally here — and this year’s looks to be one for the ages. The set lists are incredible, and too numerous to list here, so I’ll just pass on the images I’ve been drooling over for the past two months. If can’t make it, don’t worry — I’ll have you covered next week with info all the best sets.
Until then, some sweets to turn your weekend into a Vegas vacation. Let’s get to it!
From one side of the country to the other: Felix Cartal lends his touch to Autoerotique‘s “Roll the Drums.” An absolute banger.
A little tardy with this one, but whenever you come across a new Pleasurekraft track you wait until the full version is released. We were teased with a preview a few weeks back, but it didn’t do the tune justice. It’s truly out of this world — particularly once it hits the four minute mark. (PS, Pleasurekraft are in Toronto tomorrrrrrrrrow night at SPACE IBIZA at Sound Academy. BE THERE!!!!!!!!!)
Speaking of previews, Tits & Clits have given us a glimpse of their latest track — and this one can’t wait. It’s a remix of Demon Superior‘s “Creepy Little Doll.” Something about T&C in the studio: they know how to pick just the right chord for every part of a remix. This will be a definite download when the full track becomes available; until then, this two-minute snippet should hold you.
Mau5trap is well represented this week with the latest from Moguai: a remix of a track he released back in February. He must of heard something in the past four months that he wanted to incorporate, because this version is miles away from the original. Both are good — but this one’s better.
One of my favourite acts, T.E.E.D., remixed by none other than Miguel Campbell. Huge!
