Deadmau5 – Phantoms Cant Hang

Ahhh Deadmau5 "the culture warrior" lol

Often known for his voice tress twitter arguments ... This titan defiantly backs it up with 20 albums his latest … named  While (1<2) .

I personally wouldn't say he was my favourite person in the industry but when it comes to the music he produces he takes the winners card ....

Some of my favourite features of Phantoms Cant Hang

1. The Fm synthesis throughout this track its quite cool especially at the beginning  flipping into a cool synth plucky stab just WOAHHHH <3

2. These big dark drawn out vocals reminds of a scene from lord of the rings defiantly appealing !!! and very different .. “dem feels am I right” !

3.  And The huge explosion of synth b4 the last drop took me by surprise . (oh and is that a prada snare I hear lol)

 

Tennis Court – Lorde (Flume Remix)

This guy is simply killing it when it comes to Australian artists, if you haven’t herd of Flume than you really have been living under a rock!!!!.  From his biggest track ‘Holdin on’ to his insane remix of ‘hyperparadise’ he has backed it up with this banger!!!

Starting off with a 1-minute very dark intro this thing truly progresses!!! Into that that incredible flume sound.

The synth work appeals to me the most in this track! Very original sounding, the Kwel stutters and flow tricks really get you in the mood to part and those heavy hip hop beats someone would thing he was a member of what so not or something.  But seriously what’s not to love in this track am I right , oh and to top it off those beautiful Lorde vocals. DELISH!!!!!

Oh and did I mention the countless awards he has one including an ARIA & a triple j award ….. yeah !

 

Empire Of The Sun – Celebrate (hook N Sling Remix)

Another Aussie doing us proud living In the states and its not a wonder he has been in the scene for over a decade with so many of his originals and remixes landing on the MOS label and His latest track being remixed by Axwell this dude whom I’ve had the pleasure to support at some gigs is still killing it!

This track has been around for a while new but man I’m still in love!

I feel there’s a lot of deep house feels in this one especially with those claps (THERE CRAZY) reminds me of The Clapping Track by Claude Von Stroke

This truly takes my fav remix for the yr so far....

That snappy big round kick makes me happy in so many ways ;)

and it stands out from everything else the the scene at the moment.

Also if ur feeling this be sure to check out his track Magnet!

 

Untroubled (Original Mix) - 123 MRK

This Track is defiantly my number 1 in this top 5. I often find it hard to talk how I feel about this track as it speaks to me in so many ways but the main things Ill say are …...........

They often say less is more with everything and this track certainly proves that theory.

This track speaks too all my emoticons. From the detuned vocals to the 8bit sounding melodies. The minimal percussion in that 1st drop truly fascinate me! Haha Overall an insane remix!

Its just blows my mind!!!!!!!!

 

The Good Life – Elizabeth Rose  (emoh instead poolside remix)

Last but certainly not least .Let me talk about the artists real quick.

Elizabeth, constantly having her music on rotation at triple j these Australian solo pop artists. Is a very cool producer mixing hardware and software to produce and perform her tracks and an all round mad chick too lol (ps her brother is hook n sling im pre sure lol)

Emoh Instead  (also 1 half of what so not) on the remix!!! This Australian gun is going far!!  Touring all over America at the moment under the what so not name with the likes of Skrillex and Dillon Francis  playing that bass heavy melt you face get crunk n stuff music LOL ..

A quote from his sound cloud reads “It's 4/4, its chilled, it's housey & it makes me wanna be the guy at the BBQ that jumps in the pool with his cloths on (phone still in pocket, yolo), kicking the party into gear hahaha”

And it certainly is that. Given to me from Emoh himself I keep this track close to heart as this guys is crazy talented and like most Aussies an all round nice guy!

Ok lets talk about the track firstly who puts a dolphin sample in there track … yep he did … 4 and a half bars into the 1st “drop” listen closely!!!! Ha love it !!

There’s some really cool vibes with the percussion on this one ! Kind of break beat sounding snare drum in there and that housy kick clap 4/4 beat .. delish !!!!
