Thomas “Kulkid” Ouf has had a busy year. Cashing in on the cred he’s accumulated by delightfully warping and skewing tunes from far outside of the electronic realm, the French young blood follows his first original track with Have I Ever Told U, quite possibly his best work to date. Kulkid introduces his tune with a Caribbean steel drum [...]
Kulkid - Have I Ever Told U (Original Mix)
IT’S TIME! New York’s premier dance music festival is finally upon us. A year’s worth of waiting, reminiscing and anticipating is over as Electric Zoo is finally kicking off. This year the festival boasts over 70 accomplished artists ranging from the most respected DJs in the world to newcomers just breaking out onto the scene. I’d [...]
Kaskade - Fire In Your New Shoes (Joachim Garraud Vocal Mix) [Ultra]
Groove Armada - History (Grum Remix) [OM]
Robyn - Hang With Me (Avicii's Exclusive Club Mix) [Ministry Of Sound]
Upon hearing the original mix while back, I was immediately drawn in by the vocals in this song, but felt so much more could have been done. The original really focuses on the rhythm and the voice, which makes for a good house track that I certainly appreciate. Recently, I heard the version of this song that was truly meant for me. Dim [...]

Dennis Ferrer - Hey Hey (Original Mix)
Dutch house duo Mason first made their name in 2006 with the release of their super-catchy house song Exceeder. The song steadily climbed its way to #1 on the UK Dance Charts, and once more with a new version in 2007. Now that they’ve got the whole world’s attention, it seems like the two have decided to step up their game again. Here’s [...]
Mason - You Are Not Alone (Original Mix)
Pendulum is back with their third feature album Immersion, and it’s just decent. While they continue to push the limits of their guitar-driven, drum-n-bass-pop sound, they didn’t seem to put too much effort into album’s standard filler tracks. Nevertheless, there are a few gems in this pile of shiny rocks. If you’re a fan of Hold Your [...]
After hearing Para One’s remix of the 2009 Boys Noize hit Jeffer, I didn’t expect his first original release in 3 years to have such a cool, laid back summery house feel to it. With that being said, I absolutely love it. The release is called Kiwi/Toadstool, as those are the original tracks on it (With remixes from Noob, Tony Senghore, [...]
Recently, Grum has proved himself to be one of best up-and-coming light disco-house producers in the scene. Since its release in May 2010, Grum’s new album “Heartbeats” has been compared to legendary albums such as Daft Punk’s “Discovery” and Mylo’s “Destroy Rock and Roll”. The precursor that got me so excited for Heartbeats is a Grum [...]
At only twenty years old, Avicii has become one of the most recognized up-and-comers in house music today. He was named 2009’s Breakthrough DJ/Producer of the year by French magazine Only4DJs, and his recent productions show that he’s still improving. I expect his mid-2010 release, Bromance, to remain one of my favorite songs of the [...]
