So Christmas and New Year’s have come and gone, leaving the inevitable post-holiday sense of letdown in their wake. To lift the spirits a little, here’s a look back at the Sweets of the Week anthems that made 2011 memorable.
Posted three weeks ago: VLSONN‘s beast of a tune. Cop the EP amigo!
There comes a point when you know an artist or group has hit either hit their peak or are about to do something game-changing. Zeds Dead are rapidly approaching that spot, and with the release of Ruckus the Jam it’s clear that they have chosen the latter. In anticipation of next week’s huuuuuuuuuuge show at Kool Haus, we present … brand new Zeds Dead!
There’s a reason I’m enthused every time I hear a new OVERWERK track. The kid is an absolute magician in the studio and seems to be able to create sounds that for the mass audience with every production. Listen to me: the EP is free, pick it up riggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhht now! You’ll thank me in the new year!
Okay, this could potentially be big. Daft Punk are gods, simple enough. Well, I came across something very interesting on deathelectro.com. And I quote:
Read this letter to The Daft Club:
My dad works at Virgin Records in the UK and has access to the servers on their Computers. He came home Friday night with a USB stick, I use it from time to time for my files for Uni. I Had to put some photos from my computer to my dads so I used His USB on Sunday. When I know I did, i found something interesting…I found a file on the USB titled ‘Daft Punk – Sky Dive (2012) (Previews Promo)’.
Well it’s not that awesome. I’m sure his pops is wishing he didn’t let him use that USB. Whether or not this is the real deal, we don’t know yet … buuuuuuut, it has a Daft sound. Tell me what you think:
Here’s a track that will simply make you feel good. The song is very familiar, but this remix blends with the vocals to perfection. I think it’s perfect holiday party track. Not too heavy, but enough spunk to get everyone up. Wintercore!
I also have the new EP from The Shack. These vibes are a little more chill, which I’m really digging. The basslines on all the tracks are awesome. The EP was released on the Faze Action label, so it’s no doubt that he blesses us with the remixes. A good EP to keep in your back pocket.
Lastly I got the brand new video from Major Lazer, “Original Don.” First time I heard this song I was torn. It’s huge, but it’s also annoying. Halfway through you’re like, “What am I listening to?” — but you don’t press stop. Anyhoo, I was expecting a video shot in Jamaica, with a bunch of goons and gangstas all crowding the streets of Kingston. What we get instead is a little different. You figure it out.
