As Electronic Dance Music enters arguably the first summer of its Golden Age, We can expect many of the massive summer tracks released by big producers to appeal to a wide audience. Could Laidback Luke have nailed it more tastefully with this release?
1) Last Friday Night (Laidback Luke Remix)-Katy Perry ***FUEGO***
This track has all the key ingredients of a massive summer anthem: 1) Its subject matter is a day of the week, meaning it will get played in every club on every Friday night, that you can just about guarantee. 2) It has the simple, singable lyrics that even the drunkest, jappiest girl couldn’t possibly screw up, but no extensive vocal break that makes it unappealing to DJs 3) Guitar Break! 4) Dreamy Synths 5) HUGE DROP.
1) Turbulence (Original Mix)-Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, & Lil Jon ***FUEGO***
This song won’t be available in the US for another week, but thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can have it now!
The result is two hours of mercurial, capricious, high-energy dance classics.
This is a must-download for any dance-music lover.
1) Laidback Luke Essential Mix 02/18/11 -Laidback Luke
Because of the size of the file, I’ve uploaded it to our Mediafire. Hit the jump to be taken to the download link.
Yoinked this guy off the Dada Life February Mix, which is absolute fuegs. Pick it up over at Chemical Jump
If you don’t have any of these essential jams already, I am mandating an immediate download. All are very different styles, but declaring them crucial to your Itunes is an understatement.
#1) Remedy (Avicii Club Remix) – Little Boots
Classic Avicii. His progressive house never ceases to disappoint. Rapture-esque.
#2) Hey Brap! – Laidback Luke, Diplo & Bart B More
Aggressive drop. Jams like this are why I excessively worship Laidback’s dutch house.
#3) Perfect Stranger (Steve Angello Remix) – Magnetic Man feat. Katy B.
Dope-show. If you don’t have this one, your missing out. Its little things like throwing the word “Change” before the drop that makes this guy the MASTER. Shout out to my boy Moses for enlightening me prior to hearing it drop NYE @ Roseland Ballroom.
#4) Silvia to Ibiza – Miike Snow vs. Swedish House Mafia
Ahhh what a way to end the post. Beautiful music. All that can be said. Used to only have set rips of this mash but I finally found an HQ version. Enjoy.
Let’s celebrate with some Nadastrom amazingness.
1)Hey (Nadastrom Hot Latin Dub)-Laidback Luke & Diplo ***Fuego***
Dark, Techy, Latin House. I love how all-over-the-board Nadastrom’s sound is. Cannot wait to sit down and talk with Nada. The man is a visionary. He has started a brand new genre of music that is catching on like wildfire. Stay tuned.
1) Are You Ready (Mahesa Utara Remix)-Angger Dimas ***Fuego***
Laidback dropped this track at Pacha NYC, I don’t even know how to describe it…Downtempo Dutch Dancehall Jungle Dubstep? Craziness. The place popped though. In a set filled with ragers, with people throwing their hands in the air, it was refreshing to see some bumping and grinding.
