Calvin Harris feat. Kelis “Bounce”...

I’m not going to to lie, I am a HUGE Calvin Harris fan! His second album “Ready for the Weekend” (2009) is one of my favorite albums of all time. Like any good fan I am eagerly awaiting his next album that is due to be released either later this year, or early next year (uggh). While we are waiting, Mr. Harris has been kind enough to release a couple of singles in advance of the new album. The first single “Awooga” is a straight instrumental dancefloor banger with an 8-bit vibe that gives it a very funky appeal (Check it out HERE). Now for the second single “Bounce” Calvin has teamed up with Kelis (who is way too underrated IMHO) on vocals. Her voice blends perfectly over Calvin’s trademark driving bassline and bleepy, blippy synth leads. “Bounce” picks up where “Ready for the Weekend” left off which is very nice. It’s like going back on vacation to that one special place after being away for a long time. Obviously I could blather on all day so check out the video for “Bounce” and please leave a comment!

Benny Benassi feat. Kelis, apl.de.ap & Jean-Baptiste – Spaceship (EDX Dubai Skyline Remix)...

Summer is definitely here and you can tell by just taking a listen to the radio or your favorite dance spot because everyone is rolling out what they hope will be the song that defines the season. One contender recently let out of the gate is the latest from Italian producer and Electro house DJ Benny Benassi. If the name sounds familiar it’s probably because you remember his oh so classic 2003 release “Satisfaction” (check it out here). Benassi’s soon to be new released album is definitely eagerly awaited and if the first single “Spaceship” is any indication of what he has in store, watch out! This might be the year Benassi goes massive! Today I am going to focus on one of the many great remixes of “Spaceship” the sublime EDX Dubai Skyline Remix which masterfully smooths out the harder edges to create a more mellow vocal based version of the track. I really, really like this and it’s a good choice for something more upbeat during those rough commutes. Check it out and let me know what you think. Spaceship (feat.
