Scooter - The Logical Song (Alvaro Guerra aka Varo & Electrobeat Remix)

Top 10 Dance Artists

" 1. Moby 

DJ? Artist? Producer? Author? Restaurant Mogul? There isn't a single title that can be used to encompass the multitalented genius known as Moby. Taking a break between a promotional tour and a concert tour, Moby took a few minutes to talk to us about his new album "Hotel," the joys of Teany and political activism.

2. Underworld
Dance artists rarely make it past one album, much less to a greatest hits album. Underworld is not a typical dance artist and Anthology 1992-2002 is not a greatest hits album, but rather a collection of songs that document ten years of music from white labels to major soundtracks by one of the most important electronic music artists. Karl Hyde spoke to us about the progression of Underworld through their unique live shows and creative visions that keep us all jumping on the dancefloor.

3. Mylo

Mylo's debut CD "Destroy Rock and Roll" spawned the massive club anthems "Drop the Pressure" and "In My Arms." Critical praise and commercial success assured an eventual US release, led by the mashup "Doctor Pressure" which layered Miami Sound Machine's "Doctor Beat" over "Drop the Pressure." Taking a break between albums, Mylo (born Myles MacInnes) is touring the world as a DJ and recently made a stop in New York to play a party for internet record label Recall Records.

4. Scissor Sisters

Scissor Sisters are redefining pop music with a playful edge; fusing rock, dance, and just about everything else with incredibly well-written songs with hooks that force you to sing along. Baby Daddy teamed up with lead singer Jake Shears to form the nucleus which expanded to include self described "drag queen stuck in a woman's body" Ana Matronic, drummer Paddy Boom and guitarist Del Marquis.

5. Infusion

Springing from intense afterschool discussions about Depeche Mode and the fecund sounds emerging from the international rave scene, Infusion (Manuel Sharrad, Jamie Stevens, and Frank Xavier) have been delivering quality dance music since their first 12” “Smokescreen,” bringing creativity and fierce energy with their productions and remixes ever since then.

6. Prodigy

Is electro the new punk rock? On The Prodigy's new album, Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned, Liam Howlett goes back to his punk roots, exploring his influences and mashing them together in his laptop. Inviting people as varied as Kool Keith, Juliette Lewis, Princess Superstar and Twista along for the ride, the CD is like one we have never experienced before.

7. Junkie XL

Following up the gargantuan concept album Radio JXL with the more personal and instrospective Today, Junkie XL goes back to his musical roots, building the album around the guitar, the instrument he is most comfortable with. Not that he hasn't been busy lately, remixing everyone from Coldplay to Britney Spears and scoring film soundtracks and videogames, though he might be best known for his work with Elvis.

8. Conjure One (Rhys Fulber)

Few artists can honestly say that they witnessed and contributed to the birth of modern industrial music... Rhys Fulber can. Widely known for his work with Austrian musician Bill Leeb on a little project called Frontline Assembly, Fulber has cemented the use of synthesizers and electronic drums in industrial music. Since Frontline Assembly, Fulber has expanded his musical horizons by composing for numerous side projects such as Intermix, Delirium, Synaesthesia and now Conjure One.

9. Kraak and Smaak

And you thought Dutch dance music began and ended with only trance music? Kraak & Smaak, the team of Mark Kneppers, Oscar De Jong and Wim Plug, break the mold with funky house rhythms from a DIY perspective. Whether you experience their performances as a live band, their intense DJ sets, or their cutting-edge videos, you will definitely groove to the tracks from their impressive debut CD "Boogie Angst."

10. Second Sun

Voraciously energetic performers, the members of Second Sun are up-and-comers to watch. Not since The Prodigy have electronica artists been such engaging crowd pleasers. With their artist album in stores now, Antoine and Adam are touring North America this summer." Article source:

Alb Negru - Charisma (Chris Mayer R.O.P. Remix)

Top 100 Clubs 2010 Results

"The pride of Manchester, Sankeys storms to victory in the first purely clubber-voted DJmag Top 100 Clubs poll. For the first time in its history DJmag's Top 100 Clubs 2010 was decided purely by clubbers. It represents the most comprehensive clubs poll ever with over 80,000 clubbers from across the planet pledging their votes for their favourite dancefloors. Breaking into the top 10 for the first time in the poll’s four-year history was Manchester's legendary Sankeys, who secured the crown as people’s champion — jumping a massive 15 places to replace Berlin’s Berghain/Panorama Bar at the number 1 spot. The top ten positions were dominated by European venues –London heavyweights Fabric, Matter, and Ministry of Sound; and Ibiza favourites Amnesia, Space, and Pacha all made the Top 10. Singapore’s standard-bearer Zouk was the only venue outside of Europe to feature in the top 10. The highest climber in the top 10 was London superclub Matter which leaped 20 places to rise to number 6. Proof of the Greenwich superclub’s growing prominence at the heart of London’s club scene, this capped off a year that has seen nights like Cocoon, Circo Loco, Andy C’s Ram and dubstep/grime megarave Rinse Vs FWD all sell out at the 2,600 capacity venue.

But the highest climbing UK venue was the futuristic Mint Club in Leeds, which surged up 53 places to hit 24. New entries from the UK included DJmag's "Best Of British" best small club winner Corsica Studios at 41, Plan B’s Brixton 91, and Shoreditch’s East Village which landed at 100. Across the top 100 as a whole there was a total of 27 entirely new entries including Hamburg’s Baalsaal, Croatia’s Porat, Dublin’s Twisted Pepper, Amsterdam’s Melkweg’s, Belfast’s Mynt, Frankfurt’s Neidklub, Beirut’s Skybar, Cyprus’s answer to Bora Bora — Guaba Beach Bar. Despite slipping down in the poll by 7 and 5 places respectively, Brazilian dance emporium’s D-Edge and Warung continued to occupy the heady heights on 16 and 20 respectively. Epic 8,000-capacity outdoor emporium Green Valley, meanwhile, rose 10 places at number 27.
Proof positive of the thriving worldwide dance community and the global reach of club culture, venues from all four continents were represented across 28 individual countries including England, Ibiza, Germany, Singapore, Greece, Japan, USA, Canada, Brazil, Belgium, Egypt, Romania, China, Scotland, Spain, Holland, Argentina, Ireland, Beirut, France, Bolivia, Bulgaria, Peru, Malta, Australia, Croatia and Dubai."

Kesha & Queen - Radio Tik Tok (DJs From Mars Bootleg Remix)

"Kesha Rose Sebert (born March 1, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States), better known mononymously as Kesha (stylized as Ke$ha or K$), is an American recording artist. An active singer since before 2005, her breakthrough came in early 2009 after appearing on Flo Rida’s number one single Right Round. Ke$ha later supported Calvin Harris on tour in the UK and toured with Mickey Avalon in the US. She also performed at Madison Square Garden on December 11, 2009 for the Z100 Jingle Ball. She was announced as one of the acts for the 2010 revival of Lilith Fair and presented at the 52nd Grammy Awards.
Her debut album, entitled Animal, was released on January 5, 2010 in the US to mixed reviews from music critics. The album sold 152,000 copies in its first week in the US, debuting at number one. Animal was seven years in the making and resulted in Ke$ha’s accumulating over two hundred songs by the time of its release, with fourteen making the final cut. A number one placing in New Zealand for the first single TiK ToK (first released on August 7, 2009) gave Ke$ha her first solo number one; this was followed by number one positions in Canada, Australia, Norway and the United States, reaching the top of the Billboard Hot 100 as the first number one of the 2010 decade. During its second week at number one on the chart, TiK ToK set the female download record and became the second best-selling single in a week, after Right Round, for shifting over 610,000 copies. During its fifth week at the top of the chart, it broke the record for the highest weekly plays on the radio airplay chart. Her second single, Blah Blah Blah (feat. 3OH!3), was first released on February 19, 2010 and has since charted within the top 10 in four different countries.
On March 5, 2010, it was announced that Ke$ha will be performing at Lilith Fair 2010, which is back by popular demand. ABC is the official sponsor of this year’s Lilith Fair. For more information on the tour schedule and artists visit the Lilith Fair official website." Article

Nana Mouskouri - Guten Morgen Sonnenschein (Tobias Schulz Remix)

"Nana Mouskouri (Greek: Νάνα Μούσχουρη, born Ioanna Mouskouri in Chania, Crete, Greece) is a Greek singer and politician. She was known as Nana to her friends and family as a child. She is the world’s highest-selling female recording artist, having sold over 300 million albums in fifteen languages, including Greek, French, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Latin, and Portuguese, over 450 albums. She is France’s number one selling artist. She is noted for her trademark black-rimmed eyeglasses and her songs of melancholy, longing, and sentimental musings upon love, for which the emotion of her voice is exceptionally suited. Mouskouri has recorded from the 1960s into the new millennium. She has tailored releases to specific international markets with tremendous success, having acquired more than 230 gold and platinum albums worldwide. Mouskouri’s family lived in Canée, Crete, where her father, Constantin, worked as a film projectionist in a local cinema. Her mother, Alice also worked in the same local cinema as an usherette. When Mouskouri was three, Constantin moved the family to Athens. Mouskouri’s family worked extremely hard in order to send Nana and her elder sister, Jenny, to the prestigious Athens Conservatoire. Mouskouri had displayed exceptional musical talent from the age of 6. However her sister, Jenny, appeared to be more the more gifted of the two. In fact Mouskouri only had one ‘working’ vocal chord (rather than the normal two). This a rare condition gives her voice its particularly original timbre." Article source:

Pussycat Dolls - I Hate This Part (Digital Dog Remix)

"“Inside every woman is a Pussycat Doll,” says Robin Antin, the creator of the singing-and-dancing ensemble that has risen from underground cool to major label hot. “It’s about female empowerment, about being confident with who you are. It’s about singing and dancing in front of a mirror by yourself and having fun.”
With their A&M Records debut album, PCD, (led by the #1 smash “Don’t Cha,” a duet with Busta Rhymes and produced by Cee-Lo), the Pussycat Dolls go beyond being extraordinarily beautiful. With tremendous voices, and after working with today’s top songwriters and producers (including Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas, Timbaland, Rich Harrison, Sean Garrett, and Ron Fair), the Pussycat Dolls are ready to stamp their mark on music and on attitudes.

“To me, a Pussycat Doll is fearless but also vulnerable,” says lead singer Nicole Scherzinger. “We’re strong but we like to play too. The line in ‘Don’t Cha’–’don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me’–is meant to be empowering. The Pussycat Dolls are not about just being hot but also about saying something with real feeling.” From Scherzinger, who earlier scored a Top 10 album and single while in girl group Eden’s Crush, to Jessica Sutta, the one-time captain of the Miami Heat dance troupe; from Carmit Bachar, the “La Vida Loca” girl on Ricky Martin’s world tour, to Ashley Roberts and Kimberly Wyatt, two of the most talented young dancers in Hollywood, and Melody Thornton, a stunning singer chosen from an open audition, these Pussycat Dolls represent the next step for the group whose Sunset Strip performances became the hippest ticket in Hollywood.
The Pussycat Dolls were born in a tiny dance studio in the L.A. garage of actress Christina Applegate, with whom Antin was rooming in the early ’90s. Antin had appeared in commercials for Coke and 7-Up, and did choreography for music videos for the likes of Smash Mouth, The Offspring, and No Doubt. “But I wanted to do something creative and different,” she says.So Antin invited over a few girlfriends who were also tour/music video dancers and they began to play around with her own choreography, a style endowed with the spirit of famed choreographer Bob Fosse (“Sweet Charity,” “Cabaret”) but also music from Led Zeppelin to punk rock, Siouxsie & the Banshees to Bjork, and fashion as well. Meanwhile Applegate suggested they perform at the Sunset Strip’s renowned Viper Room. Owner Johnny Depp saw them rehearse and reportedly said, “This is why I opened a club.” The Pussycat Dolls, which have seen many members in its evolving lineup since debuting in 1995, became the Thursday night opening act for the next six years.

A turning point came in 2000 when No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani came to a show and said she’d love to do a guest spot, not just to dance but to sing. So did Christina Aguilera. In 2002 it was time to take the show to a bigger venue and so the Pussycat Dolls moved to the Roxy. For two shows a week, for seven weeks, the place was sold out. Other guest performers included Brittany Murphy, Charlize Theron, Nikka Costa, Paris Hilton, and Pamela Anderson. All of them appeared without pay, just for the fun of it, including emcee Applegate.That same year, Antin joined forces with Jimmy Iovine, Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M, who also envisioned taking them to a higher level. Their song “We Went As Far As We Felt Like Going” was heard in 2004’s Shark Tale, their cover of the standard “Sway” (helmed by Ron Fair, A&M President and producer for Aguilera and the Black Eyed Peas, among others) was heard in 2004’s Shall We Dance? The Pussycat Dolls were also seen in 2003’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Pink’s “Trouble” video as well as 2005’s Be Cool. Scherzinger was featured with Will Smith on “If U Can’t Dance (Slide)” on his 2005 Lost And Found album.Today, there is a Pussycat Dolls line of makeup from Stila and the Pussycat Dolls Lounge opened in April 2005 inside Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, featuring a different roster of performers. The future may hold a line of clothing, lingerie, perfume, videogames, TV, and movie projects, and other lounges." Article source:

DJ Sava & Raluka - I Like The Trumpet (Moving Elements Remix)

"Having a keen interest in music, DJ Sava began his career as a dj in 1990, when the first taste of playing to a crowd was given to him: Disco Vox Maris, Costinesti, at the Black Sea. From this beginning, DJ Sava played an important number of gigs around the country, wowed clubs and captivated dance floors by mixing along in important house events like “Freedom Festival”. At the present time he is undoubtedly a very well known dj, producer and remixer, representing one of the major labels in his country, “MusicVision”. His first single, as a producer, was “Gone Away”, a great track, which succeeded to become a hit, and also to get in the charts and playlists of great international djs like: Joachim Garraud, J Joy, Santos etc. After spending a year perfecting his producer skills, his label decided to release DJ Sava’s first album: “Love Drops”, and first video “I Remember” (feat. Dana Nicula), played by different music televisions in Europe (MTV, Kiss TV etc) and included it in their charts on top positions, by visitor’s vote. “Love Drops” is a very comlpex album, which includes also collaborations with important artists and songwriters: Dj Andi, Activ, Lucian Barbulesu, Connect-R, Chris Mayer, Adrian K etc. This autumn finds DJ Sava in the middle of filming his new video for “Sunshine” (feat. Connect-R), a new single with a different and spectacular new sound and vibes. Major djs like: Angel Anx, Treitl Hammond and very soon Djuma SoundSystem, have already remixed this new single, included it in their playlists, and commented it as “a real top hit”. Despite all his producer activities, DJ Sava, constantly returns to where it all began, namely in the clubs to his fans." Article source: Dj Sava on MySpace.

Xonia was born in Melbourne, Australia, where she started her music career at the age of 8 and by the time she turned 14, X had signed with a record label. As an anxious and naive young girl Xonia developed her musical knowledge and reached a clear understanding of the artist she wanted to become.  Xonia began creating a unique music style through the creation of her original material and moulding into a professional singer with experience through live performances. Xonia worked hard in the recording studio experimenting and worked on collaborations with established industry moguls, among them Martin Jenkins of VHJ Music, Rob Davis (Kylie Minogue ‘Can’t Get You Outta My Head’), Brian Rawling (Cher, Danni Minogue ), Doug Brady (John Farman, Olivia Newton John),Kevin Colbert (Paulina Rubio ‘Casanova’) and Brian Canham (Psuedo Echo  ‘Funky Town’).

Keri Hilson & Timbaland - Return The Favor (DJs From Mars Bootleg Remix)

"Have you seen that gorgeous model-looking chick that’s got Usher sprung in the video for ”Love In This Club?” Turns out, she’s a recording artist in her own right. Keri Hilson is about to be huge. And she's one of those rare people who deserve to be. For Keri, music was a childhood friend she kept throughout adulthood. "In school, I would get in trouble for singing all the time. I unknowingly hummed every chance I got. It got so bad my friend's nicknamed me 'Keri-okey'". She wears that name proudly on her sleeve, and in credits for every major hit she writes. Destined for stardom since day one, the Atlanta native's determined spirit first materialized all before she'd turn a teenager. While performing in school plays and winning talent shows all around Atlanta, she taught herself how to write songs at twelve. Impressed with Keri's vocal ability, her piano-turned-voice teacher ushered her into a studio session where she learned the nuances of recording music. "That was when I really knew that I could take music seriously," she says. “But at the time, I didn’t know if there was such a job as production or songwriting.” “I come across a lot of people who are opportunists and they’re like, ‘If it happens, it happens.’ I’m not one of those. I’m a go getter.” True to her words, by 18 she was arranging songs, cutting vocals and engineering sessions. While on her journey to making a name for herself as one of the strongest songwriters out there, Keri eventually ran into producer Polow da Don working in recording studios all over their hometown Atlanta. One afternoon, he asked her the pivotal question—"'What producer do you think would get you where you want to be as an artist? Who would musically inspire you the most?' I said, 'Timbaland- hands down!'" Little did she know, Polow had already been talking to the Virginia Beach producer about her potential. Polow called her one morning with the news that Tim wanted to meet her. Keri was elated. "I wasn't freaking out," she recalls of that morning, "I was prepared. While I had taken all this time to hone my craft as a songwriter, I always believed that I would eventually get to be an artist. Everything I experienced, everything I felt growing up, all the work…I was just like, 'Ok. Wow. This must be it. It must be happening.'"
It was definitely happening. As soon as Keri and Timbaland met there was chemistry. “A lot of nights we would just listen to other people's music and critique it. Not for the sake of study but to listen to it and discuss it. We don't agree all the time. Definitely not. But I think that's what happens when you get two strong creative minds in the same room." Even better things happen when you get three strong, creative people in the same room. September 2008 will see the release of Keri Hilson's first album, “In A Perfect World…” It is being issued as a joint release from Mosley Music Group (Tim's label) and Zone 4 (Polow's label) as an imprint of Interscope Records (Jimmy Iovine's label). The album is about relationships, it's emotive, human, gorgeously and deliberately imperfect. "No human is exempt from the realities of life—heartbreak, love, failure, success—I want my album to convey a sense of reality. That's the standpoint that lent itself to the title. There will always be something you’d change if only you lived ‘In A Perfect World…’ and I’m no different.”The highly anticipated debut features her indomitable songwriting skills, the genre-obliterating production of Polow da Don and Timbaland, and Keri Hilson's undeniably incredible voice. "I deliver my songs with emotion," she enthuses, "I don't like a lot of effects. It takes away from the emotion. Like the raspyness of my voice in 'Slow Dance' (written with Justin Timberlake) for example. I love the way I sound on that track—straightforward, throwback, and old school. I don't want that feeling taken away. I'm so particular about those emotions. I don't want anyone to walk away from my album just thinking, 'that sounds nice.' Anybody can do that. I’m much more concerned that they walk away thinking, 'that felt great.'"For her humility, the album is as dizzyingly good as it should be. It's a watershed moment that meets both goals—it sounds and feels great. The songs are unconventional. It's universally appealing in its pop offerings (infectious hooks are plenty) but the arrangements are challenging in how many layers there are to listen to. Heavy synth-laden basslines to the classical guitar in the tensely urgent Polow-produced "Ready to Fall," Keri anchors it all with a pitch-perfect voice that is refreshing in its versatility. From the sweeping cinematic orchestration of Timbaland's "Mic Check" ("I loved harnessing all that aggression in my voice.") to the speedy cascading electro bassline of "Return the Favor." The mutual trust between artist and producers allows them to take bold risks. Keri shouts out all the “fly girls” on her song “Get It Girl”. “A ‘Get It Girl’ is focused on getting everything she wants out of life. She is strong, independent, determined, loves to have fun, always stays fresh - and no matter what, accepts no limitations.”“In A Perfect World…” represents a world where music is music and you can’t put it in a box. It’s a catalyst for Keri to defy categorization, “I want to be a point of reference” states Hilson. “Hip-hop has become pop; pop is hip-hop. Music is definitely changing. I want to be the crux of that. I want to be a reason, not a result.” " Article source:

Akon - Right Now (DJ Saar Remix)

Akon says Lady Gaga 'pretty much retired me'

"Sure, Akon has a new album coming out this year. But thanks to Lady Gaga, he doesn't really need it — financially at least."She's pretty much retired me," the singer said of Gaga, who is signed to his KonLive imprint at Interscope Records. "She was definitely a blessing. She came at the right moment. I'm glad I believed in her, boy. That goes to show you, if you believe in something strong enough, it will pay off." Gaga, one of last year's top-selling artists, was dropped from at least one major record label. She was available just as Akon closed his deal with Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine, the Senegalese singer said in a recent interview. "And I was like 'Yo, I want to sign that right there. She needs to be under my umbrella,'" Akon said. "Jimmy was like 'Yeah, whatever you want. Take her. Let's get it done.' And she just blossomed into a super megastar, man." Gaga is one of several artists to be featured on Akon's next album. Others include Dutch dance DJ-producer Chuckie and David Guetta, the exuberant French producer behind The Black Eyed Peas' smash "I Gotta Feeling" who recently collaborated with Akon on "Sexy ..."Akon says he's not the only one energized by the merging of Euro house beats with American R&B melodies and hip-hop rhythms. 

"You've got some straight hardcore hip-hop guys actually moving into the dance realm," Akon said. "And that's shocking. When you've got someone like Dr. Dre about to do a dance record ... that's crazy."Akon wouldn't comment further on the Dr. Dre effort, except to say: "it actually sounds great. He played it for me. I was shocked. So I was like 'Wow, that's dope. When the world hears this, they might go crazy.' ... When you've got the two worlds mixed together, clashing, it's going to be a monster."As for his next CD, due out sometime later this year, the sound is even more expansive than his third album, 2008's "Freedom," Akon says."It's on a whole 'nother level," he said. "We named it 'Stadium,' because it's one of those records. We're going to do straight stadium tours overseas with this record."Those shows will be toned down from the sometimes wild performances of years past, according to the singer, whose given name is Aliaune Thiam. Akon was ordered to perform 65 hours of community service after pleading guilty to tossing a teen off stage at a June 2007 New York concert, and drew criticism earlier that year when he was videotaped simulating sex onstage with a teenage girl (he said he didn't know she was underage)."I forgot how popular I am," he explains. "I started to realize the kind of arena that I'm playing in. Before, you could just do whatever you want to do onstage and it's entertaining. Now, it's not quite entertaining."Akon isn't just sticking to music, though. He's moving ahead with a feature film project that he would star in, saying: "I just want it to be a movie with a great story, great cinematography, to a point where people are like 'Wow, that was great. I didn't expect that from him.'" Article source:

Muse - Starlight (Chris Avramopoulos Remix)

"Time after time Muse's epic soundscapes entice me; however hard I try to resist; and thoroughly excellent new single "Starlight" is no different. Beginning with supposedly foreboding and Muse trademark guitars Matt Bellamy doesn't wait too long before seducing the listener with his most powerful tool: his voice. All said, the band's musical arrangements on the track don't come into being just by accident. This single definitely falls into the category of Muse material whereby both Bellamy's voice and the music itself fuse together to create an awesome fusion of two elements together against the world. The bridge absolutely the point at which this is proven. "I don't know if it's worth it anymore... And hold you in my arms"; such a deeply romantic sentiment hidden in a whirlwind of confusion. And having seen "Starlight" performed live in someone's arms I can testify that Muse's songsmith has done it once again. Here's to hoping that he some may call the lyricist who defined a generation continues to articulate our innermost feelings for a long, long time." Article source:
"Muse is a alternative rock band from Teignmouth, England, United Kingdom. The band consists of Matthew Bellamy on lead vocals, piano, keyboard and guitar, Chris Wolstenholme on backing vocals and bass guitar, and Dominic Howard on drums and percussion.They have been friends since their formation in early 1990 and changed band names a number of times (such as Gothic Plague, Fixed Penalty, and Rocket Baby Dolls) before adopting the name Muse. Since the release of their fourth album, Morgan Nicholls has also appeared with the band at live performances to provide keyboards, samples/synth, and backing vocals.Their sound is a blend of alternative rock, classical music, electronica, metal, spanish guitars, and progressive rock. Usually they use the bass line as the driving force, often with the guitar providing only an extra layer to the song rather than carrying the melody, the bass has distortion and other effects applied to it to achieve a greater weight, allowing the guitar to digress from the main tune and play higher notes. Another peculiarity is Muse´s piano style in many of their songs; their music has been inspired by the works of Romantic pianist-composers such as Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky and Liszt, and has thus resulted in a fusion of Romantic style with modern rock.The band is known for their energetic live performances and front man Matthew Bellamy’s eccentric and avid interests in global conspiracy, extraterrestrial life, theology and the apocalypse (as much as in Space and theoretical physics). Their lyrical themes involve madcap conspiracy theory, revolutionary rabble-rousing, weird stuff about aliens (or Zetas, if you please), religions and other such classic Muse concerns."

Stromae - Alors On Danse (Sean Finn Remix)

"Stromae is a musical mutt based out of Brussels and hit the world - hard - with 2009's "Alors On Danse". The track hit number 1 in many countries. Basically everywhere it's charted, it's hit the top. It is the type of electronic record, like Yelle's "Je Veux Te Voir", that crosses language barriers. In it's original form, "Alors On Danse" is a pulsing groove track with a subtle melody and rampant horn sounds (horn sounds, like cheese food, may not be entirely authentic) that is the stuff of instant classics. Enter DJs From Mars, an Italian dance duo who's mixes hit hard, but who's mashups hit harder. They paired up - with scorching results - Lady Gaga & Coldplay, Lady Gaga & Metallica, Snoop Dogg & Snap!, Timbaland & Nirvana (just to name a few) and went outside the box to incorporate sizzling electro that sometimes mimicked the songs used as samples.

"Alors On Danse" may have been an easy target due to Stromae's monotone delivery, but DJs From Mars still didn't take the easy route and pair it with some easy-to-recognize tune. They paired it with nearly EVERY easy-to-recognize tune. Samples include: Kraftwerk, Benny Benassi, Underworld, Snap!, Felix Da Housecat, Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock, Bloody Beetroots, Robin S, Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, and more. Stromae's monotone delivery becomes the only constant between the turbulent musical atmosphere of this mashup, and it is hot to see how well it all ties together. While DJs From Mars may be relatively under the radar right now, this may be their launch. And then we dance." Article source:

The Killers - Human (DJs From Mars Remix)

"The Killers are a rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, formed in 2002 and consist of Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar, backing vocals), Mark Stoermer (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drums, percussion). The band’s three albums to date have sold in excess of 15 million copies worldwide combined. The band got its name from the fictional band “The Killers” in the video for New Order’s “Crystal.” The band is currently on hiatus. Initially, The Killers played at large clubs in Las Vegas. With the band’s line-up stable and their repertoire of songs expanding, the band began to attract attention from talent bookers, local agents, major label, scouts — and a UK representative for Warner Bros. Though the Warner Bros representative passed on the band, he took the demo back with him, showing it to a friend who worked at UK (London-based) indie label Lizard King Records (now Marrakesh Records). The Killers then signed in the summer of 2002 to a British label.
They released their debut album “Hot Fuss” on June 2004 in the United Kingdom and US (on Island Records). Their first single was “Somebody Told Me”. The band also had chart success with their singles “Mr. Brightside,” which reached the Top 10 in the UK when released, and “All These Things That I’ve Done”. The band started recording its second album, “Sam’s Town” on February 15, 2006, at The Palms Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas. It was released on October 2006. Lead singer, Brandon Flowers said that Sam’s Town is “one of the best albums of the past 20 years”." Article source:

Royksopp - What Else Is There (Trentemoller Remix)

"Brundtland and Berge were schoolmates in their hometown of Tromsø, experimenting with electronic instruments in the early 1990s, being a part of the Tromsø techno scene. They were members of various electro acts in their youth, such as Aedena Cycle, Alanïa and Drum Island. Their childhood in Tromsø and the spectacular northern Norwegian scenery have often been mentioned as one of their most important inspirations. However, the duo did not appear as Röyksopp until years later when they met again in Bergen. The city had now overtaken Tromsø's position as the most vital scene for underground electronic music in Norway, and Röyksopp worked with other Norwegian musicians such as Frost, Kings of Convenience’s guitarist/singer Erlend Øye and Bjørn Torske in what was called the Bergen Wave.Röyksopp's first singles were released by local independent label Tellé, and their album Melody A.M. on British label Wall of Sound. It spawned the single "Eple", one of the group's most known tracks,citation needed along with "Poor Leno", "Remind Me" and "Sparks". Eple (IPA: [ˈɛplə]) means "apple" in Norwegian. Their single "Eple" was used by Apple Inc. as the music for the startup video for Mac OS X 10.3.The popularity of the duo’s music was boosted by several graphically experimental music videos. One of them, an infographic-styled video by French company H5 for the track "Remind Me", won the 2002 MTV Europe Music Award for best music video. In this same event the duo was nominated in three more categories: "Best Nordic Act", "Best New Artist" and "Best Dance Act", but only won the award for best video. The duo performed the song "Poor Leno" at the event. One year later the duo received a nomination to Brit Awards, the most prestigious British music award in the category "Best Group", though without winning it. Röyksopp's second studio album The Understanding was released in 12 July 2005, preceded by the single “Only This Moment” in 27 June, 2005. The video “Only This Moment” is closely based on the events of the Paris 1968 riotscitation needed and elements of propaganda are found throughout the video clip. The album's second single, “49 Percent”, was released on 26 September, 2005. A third single, "What Else Is There?", reached #1 on the British Dance Chart. In 2006, Röyksopp released a nine-track live album, called Röyksopp's Night Out. The album contains a new dance version of their single “Sparks” and a reinterpretation of the song “Go with the Flow”, originally by Queens of the Stone Age.In 2007, Röyksopp compiled their favourite tracks by other artists for the Back to Mine series. The album was released in the US on March 5 2007 and in the UK on April 27 2007. The album also includes their own track “Meatball”, released under the pseudonym “Emmanuel Splice”, which is actually a remix version of Mike Oldfield's “North Star/Platinum Finale” from the album Platinum. This year Svein Berge also contributed as a board member for the celebration of the Grieg year, as Norway celebrated their famous composer Edvard Grieg.
Röyksopp's website was changed to coincide with their 10th birthday. They released a new track “Happy Birthday” for free on 15 December 2008 to celebrate this event, in both MP3 and WAV formats.On March 23, 2009, Röyksopp's third studio album Junior was released, which features the single "Happy Up Here". The song debuted on BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong show on 9 Jan 2009. It was officially released digitally on January 18, 2009 and was released physically on 9 March 2009. The music video features elements from the arcade game Space Invaders. Both the single and the video were met with positive reactions from the press and fans. Junior will be followed by an album Senior, a counterpart to Junior, which is quiet, "withdrawn and introspective" and "create an atmosphere and an ambience". The album will be released during spring/summer 2010. "The Girl and the Robot", the second single from the album Junior including vocals from Swedish singer Robyn, was released on June 15 2009 in Europe, June 16 in America and on June 29 in the UK, with remixes from Kris Menace, Chateau Marmont and Spencer & Hill. "This Must Be It" is the third single from the album, including vocals from Swedish singer Karin Dreijer Andersson of The Knife and Fever Ray. The single also featuring remixes by Thin White Duke, LehtMoJoe, Rex the Dog and Apparat, among others. The band has also released "Tricky Tricky" stems as part of the remix competition. The winning entries were released on October 27, 2009. The tracks "What Else Is There?" and "Eple" were chosen among the top 500 tracks of the decade by Pitchfork Media. They were placed in respectively 375th and 336th place. Another track written by Röyksopp, Annie's "Heartbeat" was placed 17th on the same list . On November 24th 2009, Melody A.M. was named the best Norwegian album of the decade by Norways largest newspaper, VG. The Understanding came 5th on the same list. The song "Eple" was placed 3rd in the selection of the top 10 Norwegian tracks of the decade. "What Else Is There?" came 6th." Article source: Royksopp on Facebook.

Arash - Pure Love (Mary Angel Radio Edit)

"Platinum-selling singer and producer ARASH stakes his claim as one of the biggest pop music sensations to originate from Sweden, home to such pop pioneers as Abba and Ace of Base. But, it's the distinction of being the only music impresario of Persian heritage whose success has translated into the Western and European mainstream music market that makes his story one for the history books. Following the three-year crest of success emphatically spearheaded by the release of his self-titled debut Warner Music album ("Arash)" in 2005, Arash is ready to parlay his unprecedented musical rise from Malmoe to MTV into a dynamic sophomore album that is sure to ignite the zeal of his super fans and garner the curious ear of millions of new admirers. The project, appropriately titled Donya (World), and tentatively set for release in May, features a global sound that injects the listener with a lethal rhythm of western production and mediterranean harmony. The blockbuster first single, "Donya," is a buzz-inducing collaboration with Kingston, Jamaican reggae maestro SHAGGY, whose career has been defined by a string of platinum-selling U.S. singles in the last decade and collaborations with such megastars as Janet Jackson. The 14-track evolution also features cameos by U.S. radio darling and international phenomenon LUMIDEE, Swedish rap pioneer and certified hitmaster Timbuktu, and more.
Donya spectacularly hypnotizing follow up to the debut that made Arash a household in many European countries and saw the young pop icon reach the top of the charts in Sweden, Austria , Germany , Poland, Serbia, Hungary, Russia, Georgia, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Israel, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey and the Czech Republic, just to name a few. He has gone gold in 5 countries and has accumulated airplay on MTV outlets in more than 35 countries, and with his new album called Donya an eclectic convergence of rock, hip-hop, dance and world ballads, the 2-year long residency Arash undertook in his studio has paid immense artistic dividends.Accolades and recognition from major global entities have been many and frequent for Arash, including his recent victory in Cannes, France when he was exulted as Sweden's most successful debut artist in 2005 at the International Music Market, and the inclusion of a reprise of his No. 1 smash hit, "Boro Boro" in the blockbuster Bollywood flick "Bluffmaster," which also featured Arash's big-screen debut in a cameo. The subsequent year, world-renowned sports magazine Sports Illustrated tabbed his FIFA World Cup ballad - an ode to his native country's national soccer team - as one of the top 3 such songs of the year, a distinction shared by pop musician RICKY MARTIN a few years earlier. Later in 2006, he won 2 Grammys in Russia and was recognized as the top import artist in all of Russia.The future is bright for Arash, and his melodic flame has yet to reach to its pinnacle. And with the release of Donya, the whole World will feel the fire that is this artist's musical legacy." Article source:

Rihanna - Russian Roulette (Edson Pride Tribal Remix)

"Ne-Yo and Rihanna certainly have a special working relationship. After collaborating on some of Rihanna's most memorable hits, they came together, with the help of co-producer Chuck Harmony, for her latest single, "Russian Roulette." But the new track, off her upcoming Rated R album, sounds very little like "Hate That I Love You" or "Take a Bow."Ne-Yo said Rihanna requested the song's somber vibe. "She wanted to be dark, but not just dark for the sake of being dark," he told MTV News. "Dark with kind of a meaning, dark with some kind of thing to it."Ne-Yo called the track "my first ventures off into the fictitious," as he explained how he came up with the haunting Russian roulette theme."I'm listening to the track, and all I can see is Rihanna and some random person sitting across from each other at the table with a gun sitting in the middle of the table and playing Russian roulette," he explained. "And I just started thinking, 'What would go through your mind if you was in that situation?' It just all started coming together, and Rihanna has never been one to be afraid to take a chance, especially with me. She's always game to do something a little different. I played it for her, and she loved it — went in and knocked it out. The rest is history."
The eerie ballad shows the world how both Ne-Yo and Rihanna have grown as artists, he said. And that growth stemmed from their "absolute trust.""I trust Rihanna to be Rihanna, and she trusts me to be me," he said. "That's the coolest thing about our relationship. I don't expect anything more from her. I must say this song is a step in somewhat of a different direction for both of us. We kind of both took a chance."And to the fans who think the track is too dark for a club favorite like Rihanna, Ne-Yo suggests they look back into music history. "It's definitely dark, but if you think about it, [Michael Jackson's] 'Thriller' was dark, but it's one of the biggest-selling records of all time," he argued."Nobody's really going out to play Russian roulette or thinking about killing themselves or nothing like that. It was just an interesting topic over a crazy beat, and who better to pull that off than somebody like Rihanna?"" Article source:

Melanie Fiona - Give It To Me (Paul Emanuel Remix)

"Don’t ask her to define it. Singer/songwriter Melanie Fiona’s debut album The Bridge reveals a sweet push-and-pull between countless elements of herself. At once Canadian and Caribbean, strong and sexy, contemplative and joyous, blending the sounds of pop and soul. Despite the many moods and musings of Melanie Fiona’s debut, there is one defining element. The girl’s got soul."The album is called The Bridge," enthuses Fiona. "It crosses the barriers between ethnicities, genres, age groups, and genders. It can’t be defined as just one thing. It’s got a soul that’s something old, yet something new." The album reflects the duality that asserts itself in Melanie Fiona’s own exuberant personality. Flirting with the traditions of classic soul from artists like Sam Cooke, Nat King Cole and Gladys Knight, the songs also pack the punch, and authenticity of modern music. United by a singular passion, Melanie Fiona’s sound bridges past and present with an artistic and consistent blending of classic soul samples. It’s all held together by a unique quality, something that is innately her, much like the other artists she mentions as influences: Bob Marley, Sade, and Patsy Cline.
Born to Guyanese immigrant parents and growing up in a music-filled house in the inner city of Toronto, Fiona knew from the very beginning that music is what moves her. "My mother, who shares my love for music, played everything from The Ronettes to Whitney Houston around the house as I grew up. My father would let me sit on the stage while he rehearsed with his band as a guitarist. " That strong sense of family translates to the team she’s now surrounded herself with, including Carmen Murray and Michael Michel of Title 9 Productions and managers Jay Brown and Tyran "Ty Ty" Smith of Roc Nation "I am so fortunate that I had people to educate me and show me that development as to what it really is to be an artist."Though Fiona had been writing her own songs for years, the introduction of songwriter Andrea Martin, would prove seminal for The Bridge. "When I met Andrea, it was an instant connection," she explains. "We developed this very personal working relationship where we were both inspired by each other." Sharing each other’s life experiences, they collaborated on some of the defining songs in the collection. Other producers on the album include UK producers Future Cut, Florida’s Vada Nobles, LA’s The Stereotypes, NYC’s J. Phoenix, Peter Wade, and Salaam Remi, Andrew Wyatt, Rob Fusari, and Angela Hunte. Fiona also shows off her Caribbean roots on Reggae Gold 2008, with Supa Dups’ "Somebody Come Get Me"."This experience will never happen for me again," she muses. "I’ll never be a new artist again. I’ll never be a complete and utter student of the game." Whatever may come when The Bridge releases on Steve Rifkind’s SRC/ Motown Universal Records in Fall 2009, Fiona is poised and ready. "I still live humbly out of a suitcase, and I appreciate the smallest things in life, and I want people to feel that. I have an opportunity to be on a stage, but I want my listeners to know that I’m just like them."" Article source: Melanie Fiona on MySpace.

Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP - We No Speak Americano (Original Mix)

Excelent tune from Spank! Records, who would of thought an old song could be coming back to life and reach top positions in world's music charts? The video (Pink Louder Edit) also shows involvment and attention to details, making it very funny. Here's the Press Release: " Spank Records in conjunction with Sweat It Out! is proud to announce the second annual Spank! Records Remix Competition. The 2009 competition with Bang Gang 12Inches and Damn Arms was an enormous success with thousands of entries submitted from all over Australia. Spank! Records is hoping to top that with our 2010 competition, with a huge new track for remixing and a swag of prizes worth more than $5000. We are proud to have the Sweat It Out! label onboard this year. The label was set up by Australia’s leading DJ Ajax and Matt Handley and has gone onto release tracks from some of Australia’s best underground talent including Gameboy Gamegirl, Act Yo Age, KillaQueenz, Oh Snap, Pablo Calamari, Harris Robotis as well as releasing tracks from Brazil’s Edu K. This year’s competition track is collaboration between Sweat It Out! artists D-CUP and Yolanda Be Cool entitled ‘We No Speak Americano’. It has been riding high on the Aria Club Charts for a few weeks now and is garnering massive overseas reaction.
Yolando Be Cool had an enormous year in 2009 and is certainly amongst the rising stars of the ‘party-tech’ sound. With their first original release ‘Afro Nuts’ being licensed to Fabric 49 mixed by Buraka Som Sistema and signed as an exclusive license to Herve’s Cheap Thrills label, Yolanda Be Cool has quickly become a familiar name worldwide.It would seem that DCUP’s meteoric rise to the forefront of the world’s dance scene has happened in about the same time as a girl in LA can go from being a B cup to a D cup. If there was any doubt about where he’s now at, his remix of ‘Filterfreak’ hit number one on the ARIA club chart and his remix of KillaQueenz ‘My Boyfriend’ is getting huge radio airplay nationally. With an original EP coming soon, and constant requests for him to play at parties all around the world, the DCUP is no support act these days. He is the main event." Article source:

Kanye West - Love Lockdown (DJs From Mars Remix)

"Djs From Mars are two deejays (Aqualuce and Ventafunk) landed for random causes, in the same time, in the same place, in BlissCo. Studios, on planet Earth. Their first sonic experiment is generated in 2004, and goes by the name of “Non dormo più” (Movimental), Earth reaction is nice (the single appears in 5 compilations and goes straight to the highest charts positions). Right after, “Open Sesame” and “Kipo Mambo” (Movimental, 2005) are released, and the alien djs are playlisted outside of Italy too. After a break for personal reasons, they come back with “The Motherfucker” (Green Park, 2007), it’s digital age, the track has an international flavor that brings Djs From Mars in the charts of several online stores on the planet. The next episode is “Who gives a fuck about deejays” (The Dominion, 2008), that takes them to be appreciated by some top house djs in Europe, and brings some remixes requests by in France (Armand de France – I Say Ride on – FalcoMusic, 2008) and in Germany (Alex Megane – Hurricane 2008 – Yawa Rec.). The following step is the remake of an old dance track by theirselves, called “Dirty Mary”, that is airplayed by lots of top dance radios in Italy and Europe….in the meantime, the djs start a remix collaboration with the Brazilian dj and label owner Diovanni, (Don’t stop the music – TronicB7, 2008). They also join their label mates Freakadelika, with the remix of “I don’t like it” (GreenPark, 2008), and dB Pure, that has his tracks “All night long” and “Falling Down” (Green Park, 2008) remixed by the martians, with big feedbacks from top djs in the Mediterranean area.
Djs From Mars continue working without pauses, “Saturday night on the moon” (The Dominion, 2008) is a the next song, featured in compilations in Germany and Italy, and airplayed in lots of radios and clubs in Eastern Europe. In the meantime they give birth to the side project “Sashimi Planet”, which incorporates the melodic and pop soul of the duo. The first single is called “lonely Satellite” and there is an upcoming release called “Shelter”. 2009 starts with a progressive mood for the aliens: their new single is called “Suono e Immagine” (The Dominion, 2009) and it is a space travel that will thake them into the new years. After just a couple of weeks they start working with dB Pure to a new single: “Revolution Radio”, after a short time it’s already licensed on a big compilation in Germany. The years goes on with big news: they go pop while they produce the main mix of “Diventa come un fiore” by Dari, an Italian band that is climbing every kind of tv and radio chart, while Phunk Investigation’s owned label “Absolutely Records” ask for a remix on their track “Show me the way” with vocals by Sharon May Linn. They also have remix requests from Canada’s label “Peak Hour Music”, they work on a track by dj Jake Chec from Executive Mix, the song is “breathe”. They also have a strong release with the club hymn from their label BlissCorporation: “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” is out on 2009 May, with mixes by Djs From Mars and Gabry Ponte (originally in the Eiffel 65 lineup). In the meantime they produce several bootlegs for their gigs, and some of them join the interest of All Music (the second music network in Italy after MTV) that starts broadcasting their works into the dance playlists. At the same time they start working with Starshit Rec.: they put their hands on Rico Bernasconi’s “Love Deep Inside”, and they are about to release “Don’t Give up”, a remake of the massive 90’s club hit by Chicane and Bryan Adams. And they’re still at work…." Article source: Djs From Mars on Facebook.
