2,000. Boom

Hello boys and girls. If you are here with us today, then you are witnessing history as Musings and Mashups just reached 2,000 site views and over 4,000 page views! Unfreaken real

We have featured Kiely Rich on this site before with his remix of a Project 46 house track. Well he's back and he brought his game to this remix. He takes an Adventure Club banger and turns it into a completely different monster. This guy has some serious talent.

You'll instantly recognize this background song when you hear it. Florence and the Machine's original sounding track, Cosmic Love, is a sweet enough track, but that didn't stop Seven Lions from turning it into a chill dubstep masterpiece.

Extended Mix

Got an extended mix for you today.

I've been seeing more and more of these nowadays. An extended mix is a 50-70 minute that a DJ/producer puts together, mixing dozens of songs. What's great about them is that they are basically a DJ in a song. Slap it on for a house party, long road trip, or a workout, and you've got about an hour of uninterrupted music, mixed perfectly with fluid transitions. Especially for parties, this negates the need to constantly pick songs, and avoids the inevitable fights over what to play next.
This one here is by The Two Friends, who add in classics from Journey, The Eagles, and Elton John, as well as the old house/pop/electronic standbys.

If you don't remember Smash Mouth (more specifically their song All Star) then you can leave. Right now. That song was catchy as hell and it pops into my head once in a while and haunts me for hours. Well thanks to EGO who took All Star and mashed it with a few electro songs, you'll be humming "Somebody once told me the world.....I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed" soon enough.

Onto some original music. AN21 and Max Vangeli teamed up with Steve Angello to produce an unreal sexy electro song. What I really like about this song is the vocal samples used and the buildup. They also seem to throw a little of every electronic genre into the mix at random spots.

Sorry, I can only supply the direct link to the file, it's no where else on the internet

Some sweet tracks coming out these past few days. Plenty of good music out there right now, make sure you grab some.

First song is a massive track by a team-up between Adventure Club and Krewella. 16,000 downloads and counting in only four days. So much energy in this track, it's almost like an exercise just listening to it. As the title of the post suggests, this song gets fairly deep into dubstep, so just be prepared. Killer lyrics as well.
Rise & Fall - Adventure Club feat. Krewella

Another huge electronic song here, this time it's Zedd dropping a huge house song that officially comes out today. There seems to be a movement of adding more lyrics into electronic songs, but with the buildups and drops still the main points. Very happy vibe to this short but sweet song.
Spectrum - Zedd

Great remix of a song we featured a little while ago, Fifteen by Goldroom. One beef that I've had more and more with the music community is the proliferation of bedroom producers who remix every big song and don't really add anything of substance. And they usually take a different or opposite direction or feel that the original song was going in. This remix though, keeps the very light and dreamy feel of the original, while adding some danceability and very interesting parts.
Fifteen - Goldroom (Oxford Remix)

Folk-Indie sensation Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros released a single a few months back that I never noticed. Has almost a Bob Dylan feel to this one, plus the drums and soft acoustic, and of course the rousing choruses that ESMZ is known for.
Man on Fire - Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Learned a few weeks ago from Jacob that Zeds Dead and Zedd are different. Who knew?

What's up guys I have an old and a new song today, both with plenty of bass. Check them out.

The first song is one I heard about a year ago but never got a chance to download or fully appreciate. If you haven't heard of Datsik, he is a pretty famous Drum and Bass producer who completely revamped the classic Kids by MGMT. If you listen with your computer speakers you wont hear anything but with some nice headphones or when you are cruising in your car, enjoy the sexy bass that makes everything rumble. I can't get enough

Kids - MGMT (Datsik Remix)

I found this song over at Earmilk and initially I was skeptical. I gave it one more listen and I fell in love. It's kind of a mix between electro, house and dubstep and it's definitely a unique sounding track. Love it or hate it.

Midnight - DJ Shadow (Urban Knights Remix)

Run It

Working through a backlog of music and I found some real beauties.

Penguin Prison is a name to look for. I've started to see his name everywhere. Here, Remix Artists Collective (RAC) teams up with Penguin Prison for a nice, melodic indie pop song. This is real easy listening. A light acoustic guitar, soft drums, strumming bass, and soothing lyrics. There's a more edgy remix out there, but I found the original to be much more pleasing.
Hollywood - RAC (feat. Penguin Prison)

Robin Carrion has been sending us music for awhile now and it always been solid, but nothing extraordinary. He breaks out of that shell with this song. A sweet house background with some rapping over it. A solid song to rage to this weekend. As always, play it loud.
La La Circles - Robin Carrion (Mashup)

This one comes from a rip of a (British?) radio station where it made its debut. For that reason, it's a little lo-fi, but its sheer power comes through anyway. Dreamy lyrics, slight dubs, what's not to love? Perfect song for slow-motion raging.
Through The Night - Bare Noize

The Hood Internet has been on a tear recently, dropping a new song every few days. This is a throw back, dropping down a retro bassline and has a myriad of rappers ranging from Biggie up to Penguin Prison. A bumpin summer rap mashup.
Fuck With Mo' Money - The Hood Internet

Teen Daze album comes out next week. I'm pumped.

Where's the drop?

See here I have a very very sexy electronic track, and when I first listened to it, it was building up and building up and then it kind of stayed at the same level and never dropped with a booming kick drum and a roaring bassline. This type of electronic music is growing on me. No drop, no problem just some sweet sexy sounds. Dig it
