Kaskade mashes up Nicky Romero

Kaskade has done a mashup of his own track 'Turn It Down' and Nicky Romero's 'Toulouse'. On The Official Global DJ Rankings Kaskade is #6  and Nicky Romero is #45.


The result is pretty crazy, see for yourself. The track is up for download as well!

Thomas Bangalter’s ‘Trax On Da Rocks’

Well, Daft Punk may be excluded from The Official Global DJ Rankings, but Thomas Bangalter isn’t. One of the Gods of electro and house is currently #1637 in the rankings.


In wait for news about the new album of Daft Punk, you can refresh your memory with Bangalter’s back-catalogue solo effort ’Trax on Da Rocks’, which is announced to be getting a reissue from Bangalter’s own label Roule. ’Tracks On Da Rocks’ was firstly released way back, in 1995. Vintage Bangalter is highly valued. Seems there’s plenty of desire for old school house in today’s EDM frenzy, the reissue put up for sale by Phonica Records has already sold out!

Tracklist:

1. On Da Rocks
2. Roulé Boulé
3. What To Do
4. Outrun
5. Ventura

Above & Beyond retiring TATW

Above & Beyond is an English trance music trio consistin of Jono Grant, Tony Mcguinnes and Paavo Siljamäki. The group as well as their label Anjunabeats were formed in 2000 and they’ve since released lots and lots of trance and progressive music. The group is currently #10 in The Official Global DJ Rankings. We have rather sad news for the fans of Above & Beyond and their weekly radio show Trance Around the World. In the end of their 449th set it is casually revealed that:“Trance Around the World 450 will be the last ever Trance Around the World. Bye for now.” So this week, after 8 years of the weekly podcast, the group is calling it off. The last ever mix is going to be special. It is going to air live from Bangalore in India, not a long distance from the beach in Goa they named Anjunabeats after. The milestone 8 hour broadcast is something not to be missed!

Collaboration by Ludacris, David Guetta & Usher(MUSIC VIDEO ADDED!)

Yesterday, Ludacris released ’Rest of My Life’ a single  from his forthcoming album ’Ludaversal’. The dance track features the superstar DJ David Guetta (#1 in The Official Global DJ Rankings) and r’n’b artist Usher. The album itself should come out in the first quarter of 2013.


Last time Guetta collaborated with Usher on ’Without You’ we heard mid-tempo grooves with an idyllic vibe. This is true for ’Rest of My Life’ as well. There’s also instrumental parts with more aggressive energy for the dance floors.

Check out the song and some behind-the-scenes footage from the studio session!

On a different note: Exquisite DJ set from Bonobo

Simon Green, best known by the stage name Bonobo, is a musician, DJ and a producer out of UK. He’s the kind of artist who doesn’t have a single song out there that’s rubbish. Bonobo’s the musical chef whose work has that extra taste, that classiness to it. Be it downtempo, trip hop, electronical or housy tunes, he never seems to go wrong. Bonobo is currently #493 in The Official Global DJ Rankings.


Well as a producer he doesn’t make mistakes often. In the beginning of the set we’re bringing to you, he does have some hick-ups. Simon will get in the flow pretty quickly though and in the end of the set the mc shouts out, he knew Bonobo can play some instruments and make up some tunes, but he didn’t know he could DJ like that. The set itself is the celebration of Bonobo’s album ’Black Sands remixes’, which was released in February 2012 under Ninja Tune label. When Black Sands originally came out in 2010 it met instant critical acclaim and high praise from listeners all over the world. The remixes album is nothing short of excellent as well. This is for all you people who are looking for something mellower, but energetic at the same time. Check out the masterful set at Boiler Room!
