FUCK YEAH AMERICA!

Because the truth is, only Marvin Gaye has the swag to turn the Star Spangled Banner into Baby-Making Music.

I still get shivers in my spine every time I hear this.

Happy Veteran’s Day Everyone!

1) Star Spangled Banner-Marvin Gaye

Baby Making Music Vol. 6…Or 7. I don’t recall.

There is no Black without White,

And thus there are no  furiously intense sexual encounters without the slower, more intimate moments.

Somewhere in Michigan, Nak3d is cursing me for posting 116 and 109 BPM tracks on this blog.

But both of these tracks were on Tong’s Essential Mix this week, so obv they hold some clout.

1)Hypnotize U- N*E*R*D

(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD)

Do you like Al Green? Me too! You’re gonna love this track then. ‘Rell summons up his best Al Green, and the end result is a highly erotic track that was named Pete Tong’s Essential Track of the Week last week.

2) Somebody to Love Me (feat Boy George & Miike Snow)-Mark Ronson

(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD)

First off, yes you are reading that correctly. Boy George. From the Culture Club. A living legend. With modern upstarts Miike Snow and Mark Ronson, this is a Brit’s wet-dream right here. And certainly, the end result is a morose, moderately nostalgic track that plays to everyone’s insecurities, which somehow translates to being a great song to fuck to.

Always wrap it up! (unless she’s somewhat clean and on the pill, that is!)

THURSDAY NIGHT NECESSITIES

FEEL-GOOD MUSIC

I’m all about it. Maybe I’m jumping the gun because I’m still in the library, with a daunting 6-page paper standing between myself and the weekend, but I needed to share this new track with you. I’ll be debut-ing it at Johnny O’s tonight, and I have a feeling people are going to eat it up. How could you not?

1) You Can Dance (prod by Boys Noize)-Gonzales

(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD) **B10 IMPLORES YOU TO DOWNLOAD**

I know what you’re thinking. Oh boy. Here goes Jack again with his Boys Noize obsession, but wait until you hear this track. With subtle nods to Earth Wind & Fire, Prince, Daft Punk, and Justice, Boys Noize and Gonzales are able to spin together a track so infectious, so euphoric, that it is capable of catapulting you out of your worst moods and into a much happier, simpler place.

We’re blessed with amazing couple of weeks coming up. The Ohio State weekend, Kid Cudi, Deadmau5, the Deadmau5 Afterparty, and hopefully some of you will be able to join us at Vision in Chicago on the 23rd for Avicii. Regardless of what your plans are, don’t forget to pause every now and then, drink in life, appreciate youth, and be grateful of the amazing bonds of friendship and love that you are cultivating.

BLOG LOVING!

Music-Blogging. It’s a very precarious business.

There are so many sources by which to get your music these days, so let me start by saying how honored I am that you include Big10 in your daily music regimen.

That said, you may wonder where I get my music from weekly. The breakdown goes like this:

20% Pete Tong’s Radio 1 Broadcast

15% Alex Koplin

10% You, my friends.

5% Artist Submissions

50% Other Blogs.

So that’s a lot of re-posting going on. Now, obviously, the end-game of every blogger is to spread good music to our friends, So we’re all in this together. But there are a lot of blogs which I have found music on, and shared with you, that deserve the Big10 Spotlight, and that you should be checking out regularly.

I have added a blogroll on the right side-bar. Check out these amazing sites and download from them regularly!

1) GottaDanceDirty.com

When you follow a blog for a long time you begin to catch the evolving musical tastes and preferences of its contributors. When speaking to the strengths of GDD, one must laud them for their consistency in delivering massive, epic track-after-track on a weekly basis. These guys are unwavering. They stay ahead of the curve, their site constantly churns out amazing posts, and they are sponsored by Avalon for fucks sakes. It is a testament to GDD That I would need more than two hands to count the amount of songs that I have posted on this blog, that I originally procured from GDD.

2) DaniDeahl.com

Whoever says DJing isn’t a woman’s game clearly has never met Dani Deahl. This fiery, outspoken, incredibly charming Chicago native delivers massive posts on a weekly basis, abundant with amazing remixes and powerful tunes. There is a reason that Dani finds her inbox flooded consistently with artist submissions. Her knowledge of production styles is scientific, her descriptions are spot-on, and the website’s layout is extremely easy on the eyes. Her knowledge of how to get the party started ensures that there’s something for everyone on this website, week-in and week-out, making her another frequently re-posted Big10 silent contributor.

3) 310Electro.com

Couldn’t do this list without giving props to my homie/next-door neighbor Anze “Alex Koplin” Kopitar. Since switching over from Blogspot to WordPress, Kope and S.Co have added a pristine, minimalistic aesthetics, embedded tracks, and, the key ingredient, their unwavering impeccable taste in all things progressive and electro-house. 1 out of every 2 times I walk into Kope’s room he is scouring Beatport diligently, breaking his bank to bring you the hottest new releases in stunning 320kbps, but that’s why we love him. Follow their site regularly and you will find your Itunes Library replete with incredible tracks in n0-time.

4) HouseGuiden.Wordpress.com

I can’t understand a word that they write, but isn’t that the beautiful thing about music? Being able to scour a website written in eastern-european characters and procure amazing tunes from there? Music transcends all barriers, and HouseGuiden is a prime example. With a more house-centric taste, favoring club epics from the likes of Morillo, Angello, Axwell and the lot as opposed to electro-house artists, this site has quickly risen to be a personal favorite of mine. Don’t let the language barrier throw you off, just download everything and you’ll find something you like.

5) TooManySebastians.Net

When TooManySebastians.Blogspot.com shut down, I almost had an aneurism. Where else would I procure all of my amazing Electronic/Electro-Pop/Nu-Disco amazingness? Thankfully, They quickly resurfaced with a dazzling new website in tow. You know the term Miami Vice that I use on occasion to describe a track with that South-Beach feel? More likely than not it came from these guys. A wonderful change of pace from your usual 128BPM ragetacular beats, these guys are the Felix Jones to House Music’s Marion Barber.

SHOW THESE SITES SOME FUCKING LOVE.

CHECK THEM OUT FREQUENTLY SO YOU CAN CALL ME OUT FOR RE-POSTING THEIR SHIT.

Baby Making Music Vol 4…..The Return of BMM

You know the premise: Yes, making tasteful, romantic love is fun, but sometimes you just want to release all inhibitions and societal constraints and succumb to your carnal, animalistic urges. This is your soundtrack to the latter.

1) The Way (At Night Remix)-Klaas

(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD)

Phat shout to my best friend in the whole wide world Mattia for showing me this track. Uptempo, Heavy, and psh, when that beat drops? If you aren’t working up a sweat you ought to check your ladyfriend’s pulse.

2) Green Eyed Love (Classixx Remix)

(CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD) *B10 Highly Recommends*

These tracks could not be farther apart in terms of sound, but they both deliver. Mayer Hawthorne’s smooth detroit demeanor compliments the dreamy aspects of Classixx’s synth-driven production, delivering a romantic ode worthy of every “Bed-time  🙂 ” playlist. Legit. A Mulq favorite, this song still gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.

PS. Remember. All of our posts are archived on the right, and sorted by artists and genre. To find the baby-making music archive, simply click here.

Now go out there and have better sex!

Kind Regards,
