Axwell

axwell

Axel Christofer Hedfors from Stockholm, Sweden is one of my favorite House producers and goes by stage name Axwell.  Not only is he the driving force behind Swedish House Mafia, but he also slays on the DJ decks.  I first saw him live at the NCMF in Chicago this past year and his set was quite amazing.  A great house set, he kept the energy high and made me forget about wanting to see SHM.  He currently owns his own label and was voted #12 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 of the year 2011.  Below are some of my favorite youtube videos/songs from the man.  Keeping it short and sweet for today, hopefully we can get back into posting more frequently.

Enjoy!

Two Door Cinema Club

two door cinema club

Kevin Baird, Alex Trimble, and Sam Halliday have been creating some awesome songs in the past couple years.  Hailing from Northern Ireland they go by Two Door Cinema Club.  Taking a step back from the EDM scene we bring you a band, like many others, who are responsible for making the EDM scene what it is today.  Without traditional bands, singers, and artists we would not have some of my most favorite electronic remixes, collabs, and productions.  These guys came out with their debut album in 2010 and have made quite a few gems since.  Probably my favorite song at this point in time was first heard in The Magician‘s mix, Magic Tape 28, which is an Alex Metric remix of “Sun“.  I know there are those out there who aren’t that into the “indie/hipster” scene or music, but honestly give this one a listen!  I definitely have a soft spot for some great vocals and piano, whether it maybe chill nu disco, house, or dnb.  Moulinex has a great take on “I Can Talk” electrifying the original with a great beat.  “What You Know” is an excellent original from the group showing off their great guitar skills and catchy vocals.  The Twelves do some justice remixing their original “Something Good Can Work”  being an excellent group themselves out of Brazil.  Ames and I were able to see The Twelves a few months ago here in Denver and they played an awesome show down at the Marquis!  Enjoy the super chilled out sounds from this Irish indie group and the wonderful remixes!  Gotta switch it up every once in awhile.

HEROES X VILLAINS

its a trap

Pete H and Daniel D are the trap ambassadors of ATL.  Producing some great tracks in the genre, they always seem to incorporate some heavy electro, dub, and rap.  Showing versatility with their trap music makes them quite unique, bringing some life to their songs!  “FLEX” , one of their newest, is excellent as they throw in builds, electro, and even have a somewhat moombah tone raging.  “FROM THE TRAP” hits a little harder than the previous, throwing down the nasty.  “TRVPSTVR”  is one of their earlier productions, well from soundcloud atleast, having a great beat this one is a bit chiller with smooth transitions.  “ORIGINAL CHOPPAZ is another filthy production, bringing the heat with a solid beat.  Get ready to ride dirty with some ATL Trap, HEROES X VILLAINS.
