Hi readers, just wanted to apologize for the lack if posts recently – I’ve been on vacation up at Whistler and will be back online soon. Happy holidays!
I’m a sucker for feminine power vocals, autotune and Skrillex, so for me this one is instant love, check out “Breathe – Vocal Edit ft. Krewella by Skrillex”
here: edit: video keeps getting removed from YouTube, just go ahead and download it now, you won’t regret it!
I first downloaded this song last night and every time I listen to it I am falling more in love. I absolutely love the powerful female vocals from Krewella, a Chicago based trio that burst onto the dubstep scene with the powerful track One Minute (have a listen here). I’m very excited to see what Krewella will serve up next, I’m getting wet just thinking about it!
The story behind this song appears to consist of manufactured buzz about an alleged hacking of Skrillex’s OWLSA label servers by an MIT student. I suspect this is some artificially generated buzz, however I really could care less as I love Skrillex, Krewella, and female power vocals – and this track serves it all up plus two beautiful Krewella style drops. Per NoiseYouShouldHear.com, Skrillex dropped it during a DJ set just this last sunday…Enjoy!

I had a great time experiencing Darude and Ronski Speed at Winterland 2011 by StarDust Productions last Saturday night at the Last Supper Club in Seattle. As soon as I walked in the door I could tell that it was going to be a high energy show. The snowflake decorations were beautiful, and the lasers accentuated the sparkly winter decor for the event. The crowd was very energetic with a great balance of dancers and drinkers having a good time. The amount of people was perfect, it was pleasantly packed with lots of dancing trance fans, but with plenty of room to move around, get up close to the performers, and also grab a drink without a long wait.
Ronski Speed opened with some good, solid trance, and definitely got me into the trance mood by dropping Above & Beyond and Cosmic Gate among his originals. Next up was Darude, who really impressed me. Darude played a good 1-1/2 hour long set, building up the beats and whipping the crowd into a trance frenzy seamlessly, then dropped some Arty before closing the night with his legendary hit Sandstorm – to which he refreshingly added some new tempos and beats.
My only complaint was that the sound quality was not the best, especially at the back of the room. When I went up to the front the sound was improved, but I really would have enjoyed some more power for the hard trance beats. Overall, a great night with amazing music, a wonderful high energy crowd, and an amazing evening.
Check out this video from Darude about the Seattle show:
Check out some photos I took from the show:
Finally we have a brand new Mord Fustang track! Have a listen to “We Are Now Connected” here:
What do you think? I’m not disappointed, but not really impressed either – I have very high expectations from an artist that has blown my mind in the past.

Reminder: Mord Fustang will be returning to the Seattle area for the Pirates of the Puget Sound party by Marble Productions. Follow the Facebook event page for more information, as of 12/19/2011 venue and full event details are still TBA. I recently attended Mord’s first Seattle appearance just last week, and he was amazing! I’ll definitely be attending the Pirate party to see him again.
Check out Dada Life’s official video for their latest release “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker” which features Seattle and FreakNight 2011! These guys really put on an amazing show at FreakNight when they opened for Tiesto, I was very impressed.
While it’s awesome that Dada featured Seattle in the video, I also really enjoyed the video for “Red Meat / White Noise” which features lots of bananas smushed into faces – check it out!
Announcement: Foster the People just announced their 2012 fall tour dates, and they will be returning to Seattle on Tuesday June 26th, 2012. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am, and per the ticketmaster page will cost $40.00 even with fees (28.00 ticket + 12.00 fee). Check out the full tour schedule here.
I just saw Foster the People at the 2011 Deck the Hall Ball, and they were by far my favorite band of the entire evening. And this is coming from a serious DC4C fan… They did an amazing job of incorporating many electro elements in their live performance, especially with the dubstep drops at the end of Pumped up Kicks. I would post the videos I took, except that the quality is terrible – I just couldn’t stop dancing!
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, however per the official website it looks like they are conducting a presale through Gilt. Personally, I don’t see this selling out instantly due to the fact that Seattle’s show is on a Tuesday coupled with the large capacity of the WaMu Theater.
What is USC’s “Big Announcement” that will be released today at 4pm? USC’s twitter, website, and facebook pages for Resolution 2012 and Enchanted Eve 2012 are all heavily hyping an upcoming announcement which will be released today at 4pm on USC’s twitter page…what can it be? Stay tuned!

Since a few friends have been asking me about this show, I thought I’d post a clarification: Winterland with
Nadia Ali, Darude & Ronski Speed has NOT been canceled but has been rescheduled to this Saturday, December 17th, at the Last Supper Club in Seattle. Nadia Ali canceled due to conflicts between her management and the event promoter. While sadly, Nadia will not be performing, Darude and Ronski Speed will still be performing, with local support by Johnny Monsoon, Darrius and Peoplez. Top 40 will be played all night in the basement if you’d like to bring along a non-trance loving friend.
While I am disappointed that the legendary vocalist Nadia Ali will not be attending, both Darude and Ronski Speed are amazing trance artists and I will still be attending. Updated ticket prices are now 15$ GA / 20$ VIP online, or 20$ GA / 25$ VIP at the door. For refunds of either original tickets or difference in ticket price contact Jimmy Geagea from Stardust Productions at 425-445-4243, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via Stardust Productions’ facebook page.
