Yeah yeah yeah yeah! Goldroom just unleashed the visual work for the impeccable “Only You Can Show Me.” I wasn’t sure what to expect from the video, but I’m digging the fun, colorful representation of the song. Enjoy that below, and then you might as well pick up a free download of The Knocks’ remix further down because that shit is good as fuck too.
Yesterday came a brand new EP from our favourite five man collective from Italy, which are of course Reset! Wind Up is the name of the release and having the courtesy of releasing this disco monster of an EP is MofoHifi Records. The title track is kinda what you expect from the gang, an hypnotizing mix of disco and electro with some groovy vocals. The B-side of this release is Escape, a euphoric big room tune that gets one very jiggly. Preview and buy the release on Beatport and catch the video for Wind Up right below this chunk of text!
Don Winsley‘s “Rise Of The Weasel King” full-length album is here…
This is a fantastic debut. Truly. 10 epic tracks with elements of electro, house, dubstep, glitch, hip-hop, and classical which, when done correctly (as Don Winsley has), makes for complete, sometimes maniacal madness. “Lets Begin” brings the album in strong, we’re thrown around the room with “Throne“, then we’re groovin’ hard with “You Move Me“. The eponymous track “Rise Of The Weasel King” has one of the coolest intros I’ve heard, and quickly drops into a triumphant dubby, electro banger. The album only continues to swell from there, until we get to “Rob“, perhaps the more chill, lovely say-goodbye outro.
Full stream ahead!
PICK IT UP ON BEATPORT TODAY!!!
Not too long ago we featured Don Winsley, the awesome tag team of Producer/DJ Daniel Kairoff and drummer Miles Cramer. If you missed the feature, you’ll want to check it here for their wicked remixes of Danger, Destiny’s Child, and Gucci Mane (I know, crazy range of tracks, but trust me they’re dope). Anyway, we’re back today with a couple cool things. First, a remix of the Ginuwine classic “Pony“. I think it’s pretty wet.
And most importantly, Don Winsley‘s debut album “Rise of the Weasel King” drops this Thursday! I’ll be covering that later I’m sure. For now, check out the album teaser…
In case you’ve been sleeping, my label HOF Records first official release, “Sunshine On My Mind” by La Zebra and C Plus, came out last month and has been making waves by itself… After a successful first tour around this release, we’ve compiled much of the footage and today are releasing a teaser of the music video to come.
He also just dropped this original, chilled out disco jam called “Feels Too Real“. It’s got the signature A.A. feel, but has a bit more of a build and crash. Definitely digging all the sounds I’m hearing here.
Another big introduction today! Don Winsley is the musical brain child of Daniel Kairoff, joined by drummer Miles Cramer in a live setting to make for a beat blasting spectacular. We’ve got three remixes for you today. All are dope as hell. Take a peak at what you can expect from a Don Winsley show before we get into those. Looks super nutty. Can’t wait to witness it myself.
First up, we’ve got a remix of Danger‘s classic “22h39“. I really don’t want to say much here. I think the remix speaks for itself.
Next we’ve got a remix of Destiny’s Child. WTF?? Yep. I already dropped this last week, and HAHA! The ladies loved it. This is for you DJs that spin to females and not a crowd of dudes. Go.
Finally, this one’s for the homies. A trappy remix of Da Juice Man and Gucci Mane. This one gets real weird.
So yeah. This Don Winsley shit is about to blow.
You guys remember Vampire Party right? These crazy ass Spanish fools? We did a feature on them a couple weeks ago, check here if you missed it. Anyway, I got a chance to ask them a few questions and here we have some answers! Their hit “Feel The Terror” is still buzzing, so check that out and we’ll get into it.
DE (HOUDINI): Tell us about Vampire Party the project and who you are as individuals. What’s a day in the life like?
Vampire Party: Vampire started in 2006, when we did our first party. It was a huge success but we didn’t make any other party till 2009, when we started to make it every month. Back then it was a really eclectic party, we played rock&roll and electro oriented party and little by little we continue growing and evolving torse a more french electro sound in 2010. Today we are proud to play the newest sounds of EDM like moombathon, dutch house, 3ball, dubstep and electro all together in one sesion. We still have a rock attitude when comes down to mixing and performing.
As individuals, all three of us come from different music scenes: Aida, who comes from rap and latin sounds; Chago, who listens more hardcore and emocore and I’ve been singing in metal bands since always.
A day in life for us is spending more time in the streets and in the tattoo shop than in the recording studio :) but we really enjoy making tracks. We are never alone in the studio. Artists like Kaze, Decepticons and Meneo are always supporting us.
DE: Who are your biggest influences as an artist?
VP: When it comes down to EDM we like some mainstream and some underground producers, we love Hadouken, Dyro has great tracks too, Freaky Philip has great moombathon with awesome basslines, Basto tracks are super big and end from the past we love Sid Vicious, House of Pain, we really don’t follow a line or a certain style when it comes down to Dj.
DE: What’s it like being musicians on the grind in Spain?
VP: It’s really hard to be accepted by the rest of the Dj scene because for them we don’t respect nothing :), but we are not here to prove nothing to them we’re in for the people who wants to hear something different. We sing our tracks live, we jump from stage to the crowd and if we feel liked we go on the dance floor to dance around with them. Everyday more and more people accept us, we are thankful for it and we try to give them back love in return.
DE: What’s the next step for you? More releases? Touring? Videos?
VP: We are playing in several festivals here in Spain and making our own parties like we have always done. We already have a few tracks ready to put out in the next months, one of them is more electro, which is a colaboration with Decepticons, and the other one moombathon. We are also preparing an album of remixes for Feel the terror, which is gonna have different kind of style and many of our guests of our parties are going to participate.
DE: What’s the craziest show you’ve played? Tell us about some of the weirdest, coolest, funniest things you’ve seen in the business.
VP: We are always creating new stuff for our shows. The funniest thing that ever happened, which was also pretty scary, it was one time when people invade the stage, they push the Dj table with all the equipment from the stage to the dancefloor, that was pretty crazy. We are used to stuff like that already in Vampire Party always something breaks :). We are also surprised about how people sing the lyrics of our tracks, that make goose bump our skin.
