Dance Electronic Mash-ups remix Remix Friday

Remix Friday 7/25 ft Tim Gunter, TKDJS, The Melker Project, Star Slinger, Diplo & more

Another big week for remixes. The White Panda owned this week with 5 releases and ended the week strong with a mash-up of Imogen Heap’s immortal vocals from “Hide and Seek” and an upbeat production from Audien. The Melker Project shows another reason why he is more than a mash-up maestro with an elegant, piano-filled […]

This pained approach is even more appropriate given the nostalgic guitar riffs and heartbeat-like drums. I don’t know what the guitar technique is thats used on this song, but it would sound […]

New Mixtape: JayeL Audio 6-25-09

Festivalist '09: Rothbury Festival

The initial lineup was released for Rothbury Festival ’09, which takes place on the west side of my home state, Michigan.  Last year was the inaugural year and has some hailing it as “the new Bonnaroo”.  The fact that Rothbury 2.0 is happening is great news considering all the economic problems in MI and the […]
