Approach With Caution: Dutch House Bangers

3 new essential Dutch bangers that come with Club Epic track warnings – play these at appropriate times. This ain’t chill music – Scope em!

1) Hey Sexy Lady (Afrojack Remix) – iSquare

Afrojack kills it again with his long awaited Steve Angello-produced iSquare’s remix of Hey Sexy Lady. Definition of a Dutch House banger. FIRE.

2) One More Time in Miami Bitch (Pristine Blusters Mashup) – Daft Punk vs. DJ Chuckie

When I was shown just the name of this mashup, I almost melted. You get what you get with this one – banging of Chuckie’s  classic Dutch house music, mixed with potentially the most successful electronic track of all time. This is, in a word… CRACK

3) Outta Your Mind (Sidney Samson Remix) – Lil Jon

Sidney Samson crushes out another Afrojack influenced remix. Wild drop. Super electro. Super CHRONZ.

DP-CRACK….

Dirty South puts his spin on “Hypnotize U”

My favorite edition of the Daft Punk produced track.

1)Hypnotize U (Dirty South Remix)-N*E*R*D feat. Daft Punk *Hot*

What strikes me as unique about this track is the way that certain production elements that are prominent after the drop are not shielded during the build-up. Their omnipresence throughout this track gives it a uniquely progressive feel. Rather than “banging”, it hypnotizes, as the title would suggest, but in a very different way than the original does.

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.

Fuck Me I’m Famous

Here’s an unreleased bad boy from Mr. David Guetta just in time for Ibiza season I was able to get my hands on. This summer’s “When Love Takes Over”?

Commander (David’s Guetta’s FMIF Remix) – Kelly Rowland

(click here to download)

This dynamic duo does it again. Guetta’s been slacking lately in my mind, but I love the proggy buildup, basslines and drop heard in this track. Would even go as far to say Guetta has redeemed himself with this remix by putting out a progressive house track that does not have the commercial top 40 quality that “Sexy Bitch” and “Memories” took on. This track is sure to get dancefloors lively this summer

BONUS: While on the topic of shit going on overseas, I need to share this video Adidas put out in light of the World Cup in which Daft Punk, The Gallagher brothers of Oasis, Snoop Dogg and David Beckham all make appearances.
