Armin van Buuren, the number one DJ for a consecutive 4 years from 2007 – 2011, gives his fans a 1 hour documentary about his life right now as a superstar producer/DJ. The documentary humanizes Armin van Buuren, even though we think of him as a huge idol. It shows his personal life with his wife and daughter, while juggling the dates and months that he will be on tour for his massive fanbase. This could easily be one of my favorite documentaries about a DJ right now as it captures the personality of a great DJ. Another great documentary to watch is Take One, which is a documentary about the Swedish House Mafia.
3LAU, a producer/DJ and one of the best mashup artists in the EDM scene right now, gives a free track for his fans. Adding vocals to Sultan & Ned Shepard hit progressive house song, Walls. 3LAU adds a perfect blend of vocals for the song, 3LAU always delivers good music and gives us a single track after releasing his mixtape, Dance Floor Filth 2 that came out a couple months ago. 3LAU also produces his own music, he has released his own remix to James Egbert‘s Back to New, and he has a new track coming out soon with the duo Paris and Simo.
Sound Remedy is an electronic producer from Los Angeles, California, who just started producing music 2 years ago. Since then, he’s put together great remixes for Neil Young, Band of Horses, and Nirvana. A couple of days ago, Sound Remedy released a new track remixing Noosa, a rather unknown (but brilliant!) singer who sounds a bit like Lana Del Rey. Sound Remedy’s production builds up to a sudden drop, which you can listen to below. Sound Remedy releases all of his tracks for free on Soundcloud.
Avicii, one of the biggest house producers from Sweden, releases a bundle of official remixes of his popular hit song “Silhouettes”. One remix stands out from all of the other remixes: the Syn Cole Creamfields mix. This is the first I’ve ever heard about this electronic group or single person and they seem to have no other released tracks on Beatport, putting me under the impression that they’ve just started out. Nevertheless, their remix to “Silhouettes” is incredible. Avicii’s original song is a laid-back smooth house song, but Syn Cole Creamfields absolutely destroy the track by turning it into a fast paced electro that will surely become a live track for Avicii’s performances. I’m absolutely loving this track, so grab the download below and enjoy!
Benny Benassi remixing Bob Marley? I know it sounds bizarre, but Benny Benassi, one of the biggest producers in the last decade who made the club-hit “Satisfaction”, creates one of the smoothest house tracks I’ve heard in a while. The build up containing Bob Marley‘s classic vocals perfectly coincide with the steady rising house sound, then the drop contains a firm but relaxing beat. I am impressed with Benny Benassi in this song, remixing Bob Marley is a huge risk considering how hard it is to put reggae sound into a house track. Enjoy an outstanding remix from Benny Benassi below.
