Both of us Landlords here at Electric Basement have MASSIVE GROUNDS to cover today with all you Tenants. With [FOUR16] DJing on both Saturday and Sundays; and myself [NigMau5] working 24/7, it becomes near impossible to post songs on the weekend. It kills us to not be able to share all the awesome music we have with you guys on a daily basis. So to make up for all the missed posts, we’ve decided to combine our missed [ELECTRO-HOUSE], [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE], and [OPEN HOUSE] write-ups into todays post! In the future, we will continue to try our best to coordinate more properly all the work that needs to be completed so we can have posts everyday for our Tenants. Lets get right into our write-ups for today!
This weeks [OPEN HOUSE] Special features not ONE, but TWO of the the most talented Producers that has had the honour to grace the scene of EDM. Without further ado, allow me to introduce to you our next [OPEN HOUSE] Special guest(s), AKA Belguims biggest illegal export: DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE.
Belguim powerhouse Producers/DJs; Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have come a LONG WAY in a VERY short amount of time with a portfolio filled to the brink with some of the worlds biggest [HOUSE] Anthems. The accolades they’ve clocked up within this relatively short time are equal to those some DJ stalwarts amass during a lifetime! The pair of Belgium-raised brothers are two of the strongest upcoming names in the EDM scene, garnering global media attention and praise from the likes of Tiesto to Snoop Dogg. Both Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have had the opportunity to collaborate with A-lists producers such as [PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] king Axwell, Dada Life, to the likes of Afrojack and upcoming producer Anger Dimmas.
What makes the pair so incomparable is that Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are known to bring more than just a “DJ set” to all their performances. The brothers offer one of the most unique performances by combining Dimitri Vegas’ superb mixing skills with the voice of Like Mikes vocals and MCing. The brothers have created some of the best clubbing experiences in the past with their Live-Performances that incorporated “Fun” and “Energizing” hands in the air peak time, dance floor destroying [HOUSE] beats. The year of 2011 has been a big year for the brothers, and shows no sign of slowing down in the near future. With their own label, Smash The House and a tour schedule that’s beginning to read like the departure board of JFK under their thumb, we can expect a ton of NEW productions (including the year is out) in the distant future. Let us not forget that the story of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike is still in its infancy and that this is just the beginning of a VERY eventful and succesful journey for the brothers. Enjoy the tracks we’ve posted below!
Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Tenants. We have reached a SPECIAL moment in this weeks Listing. We are nearing the end of our 2nd week of posts and I am proud to present to you today’s genre; The ONE genre to RULE THEM ALL! Show some appreciation Tenants, as I present to you: [HOUSE] MUSIC
What better way to start off the weekend than to have the opportunity to jam out to a bunch of massive bass-filled tracks! Without further ado, let’s get right into it: 1) One of [HOUSE] legend Fedde le Grande’s most recognized anthems of 2011, “Running” gets a nice refix from Nichola Zucchi and Variavision. The remix adds a nice “Big Room House” synth-progression that was lacking in the original, and definitely brings the energy level up a notch. 2) Turn up the bass for this next track, as Electric Basement presents a Nelski edit of “NYC” by Chris Lake and Nightriders. The bass-line is instantly captivating to say the least. Who isn’t a sucker for a multi-layered [HOUSE] track WITH the added bonus of a great bass-line? 3) Tradelove is BACK with an absolutely phenomenal remix of “Off The Wall” from The Black Projects. This young Italian producer is known more famously for his remix of “Rock the Casbah” back in May which topped the Beatport Top 10 [HOUSE] charts for a good amount of time. Tradelove’s productions have a unique but strong emphasis on the kick and bass, which is always complimented by a vocal breakdown of EPIC proportions. His productions epitomize the definition of “Funky” and “Energizing”. 4) Though we DJs at Electric Basement prefer the “Hard-Hitting” [HOUSE], it’s always great to keep in mind, “Don’t be a prisoner for your own style.” With that said, take a listen to Bart-B More’s & Harvard Bass latest single, “The Funky One” off of their new soon-to-be released album The One EP. The track features a more upbeat and funkier pattern complimented with the infusion of dutch synths from the Dutch Dynamo that is Bart-B More 5) Last, but never the least, is the gem of a remix that is, “Generations of Love 2011” by Stefano Noferini. Originally a Punk Investigation (Ft. Boy George) production, Stefano Noferini’s remix is a driving bomb that highlights the Itialian DJs flair for producing pure, unadulterated dancefloor annihilators with the main vocals, “Generations of Love” keeping you hooked to this beat for hours.
We’ve got a new some new “[FURNITURE]” here at Electric Basement, so expect big exciting things to be rolling out soon Tenants. Also, expect big changes to our site within the near future peoples as we will soon be obtaining our legitimate domain page! Hope you’ll enjoy listening to these [HOUSE] tracks as much I did posting them. As always, keep that [HOUSE] bumping!
Hey Tenants! [FOUR16] and I [Nigmau5] were both out of the house this weekend working, so we apologize for the lack of posts. Our next [OPEN HOUSE] will take place NEXT week instead, and will feature one of the best upcoming Progressive House DJs on this planet. Mondays will forever be our Miscallaneous Monday, where we post random stuff or posts missed genres for the week. Without further ado, let’s get right into today’s genre: [ELECTRO HOUSE]
In light of our recent lack of posts, we’ve decided to drop a few of the NEWEST tracks to date, along with a few older tracks that we believe is essential to any [ELECTRO HOUSE] set. 1) We start off with a HUGE remix from one of our favourites here at Electric Basement; Nicky Romero’s remix of “Without You” off of David Guetta’s recently released album. The remake adds a powerful bassline that was lacking in the original. Always a pleasure to bump (and bump to) Romero’s work. 2) We interrupt your reading for a brief moment to bring you “Sexy and I Know It”; an AMAZING new remix from Mord Fustang of LMFAOs latest single! We were unfortunate enough to miss him when he came to Toronto recently to play at Wrongbar. The melodic synths of Mord that we’ve all come to love will instantly have you hooked. A must-have for every library. 3) Relatively new producers to the EDM, Knife Party (Featuring Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen; the frontman and bass-guitarist of Pendulum respectively) return with a monster of a remix to Porter Robinson’s “Unison”. Big-Ups from Electric Basement, as the dynamic duo have done well to adapt to such a different genre so fast. With collaborations with Swedish Powerhouse Swedish House Mafia in the works, expect big things from these guys in the near future! 4) Next up, is an old but beautiful track we first heard off of Benny Benassi’s 2011 Electric Daisy Carnival Set. “The Joker” by Felix Cartal is by far one of the dirtiest yet infectious beats we’ve heard since EVER. 5) Allow us to have the honour to introduce you Tenants the sounds of Lazy Rich and Cold Blank. Two up-and-coming producers from Los Angeles who have recently been pushing out hard remixes, meets Canadian [GLITCH HOUSE] phenom. Recently remixed by Lazy Rich, “The Marshmallow Man” a darker remix to Phat Franco’s original that adds a much needed hard hitting bass with that typical but addicting electro beat that Cold Blank provides. 6) After receiving support from artists such as Laidback Luke, Van Toth’s bootleg of “Lethal Industry” has become one of the most powerful remakes of Tiesto’s classic. Probably one of the best [TRANCE] bootlegs I have heard to date. This classic gets a nice revamp with a drop that epitomizes the idea of dirty and gritty that would make even the streets of Chinatown proud.
Bonus: As a “We’re Sorry for not Posting More” gift, we’ve decided to throw in Wolfgang Gartner’slatest single this new production features a very familiar
Later on this week, we will be dedicating a day specifically for Female Producers and DJ’s. Also, if any of our Tenants would like to submit their own personal projects or would like to have post something, message us on Twitter or Facebook. Or give us a shout at Nigmau5@gmail.com or KFOUR16@hotmail. We’d love the opportunity to promote your tracks!
