Klaxons - Echoes (Steve Aoki Remix)



Looking for a track to brighten up your day? This one right here has been a favorite of mine ever since I saw Steve Aoki drop it at The Palladium. It has a different much more mellow, feel good sound to it compared to the usual hard hitting Aoki songs. Every time I hear this song I can’t help but get a light hearted feeling and want to dance. Definitely got to check this one out for sure!

Swedish House Mafia- Save the World


About a year ago, Swedish House Mafia released their first hit single "One", which also ended up being the anthem last year at EDC 2010 and killed it. A few days ago, their new track "Save the World" was aired over BBC 1Radio. This song is a banger and will definitely have the whole crowd dancin and groovin and the vocals by John Martin compliment it so well and are so empowering. The official release is scheduled to be sometime in May, so be on the look out for it. Also, SHM will be at EDC in Las Vegas on Sunday June 26 so be sure to check them out!

Let There Be House.....and more Techno.


"In the beginning, there was Jack, and Jack had a groove.
And from this groove came the groove of all grooves.
And while one day viciously throwing down on his box, Jack boldy declared,
Let there be HOUSE"


But Jack never told you he has a twisted and demented little brother named
TECHNO.


Ahmet Sendil - Are Your Kisses Dynamite (Andrea Roma Remix)

Michel De Hey & M.I.R.K.O - 5Th Business Day (Nic Fanciulli)

More to come on this exciting genre [: Stay tuned in and zoned out.

Dodge & Fuski - Guettastep


Wait up, did I just hear the sweetness of David Guetta samples mixed with those signature Skrillex-style screaming bass wobbles all in one beautiful Dodge & Fuski track? I believe so. Scoped this one on The Kollection earlier and had to share with the world. Check out the track below:

Wolfgang Gartner feat. Will.I.Am - Forever (Radio Edit)


Here is a radio edit of Wolfgang Gartner's new track, "Forever" featuring the vocals of Will.I.Am. This song is supposed to be the second single off Gartner's upcoming untitled album. The beat definitely has Wolfgang's signature sound to it and once the full track is released it will definitely be a banger! Will.I.Am has been trying to make a presence in the EDM world under his other alias, Zuper Blahq, and not too long ago got called out by Boys Noize for sampling their song "Yeah" without talking to them or giving credit. Gotta give the guy credit though for jumping on this track because it is dope! How does everyone else feel about EDM music starting to be integrated with mainstream artists such as Will.I.Am? Check out the track and share your thoughts!

Tom Hangs ft. Shermanology - Blessed (Avicii Edit)

Good morning everyone! Today we bring you a major banger from Avicii to start your day off right! The original version by Tom Hangs is supposed to be released today on Tiesto's club life album. Avicii threw down this song in his set at ULTRA, which I would have to say is one of my favorites from that weekend. This song is such an epic feel good song that would make anyone happy and want to dance and the vocals in the song are so empowering, just like many of Avicii's songs. He's been killing it on the scene lately so make sure to keep an eye out for more of his songs or if you get a chance check him at the Music Box this month!

MK9 Soundtrack - Skrillex - Reptile's Theme(Preview)

The relationship of electronic music and video game soundtracking has been elevated to another level this time, with Mortal Kombat's latest addition of House DJs to its full soundtrack for the game, set to come out the 19th. In my opinion, Skrillex has the best theme, with a hard hitting grime track filled with acid spitting wobbles and samples from the original MK. "Whoopsee!" Check the other themes and artists below:

1. Scorpion - JFK
2. Sub-Zero - Harvard Bass

Beyond Wonderland 2011

Greeting everyone! It has been awhile since the last post, but you know how life gets sometimes. Anyways, we all know that Beyond Wonderland was this last weekend and I bet everyone could agree that they had a BEYOND amazing experience they will never forget. What more could anyone ask for? A fairy tale wonderland full of amazing creations, great people and energy, and some of the biggest names ranging all over EDM genres; an escape from the real world. We had the chance to luckily catch a couple of our favorite artists, but with such a staked lineup it was pretty much impossible to catch everybody. The artists we were fortunate enough to see were PeaceTreaty, Adrian Lux, Savoy, Zedd, Kill the Noise, Jakwob, Dirtyphonics, Noisia, Congorock, Bad Boy Bill, Datsik, and my favorites of the night, Calvin Harris, Dirty South, and of course, Kaskade. Here are some of our favorite memories that we happened to capture on camera before it ran out of room. Enjoy!

He was recently climbing Beatport's charts with his latest hit "The Wildcat" (Original Mix), a must have along side with the Lazy Rich Remix of the same song.

For all you Los Angeles locals, tune into POWER 106 at 3AM on Saturday Night/Sunday Morning to hear an exclusive Porter Robinson set, a little preview for his debut at Avalon in Hollywood this February 11th with Bart B More.

Lance Herbstrong



First heard this group at the annual Austin City Limits festival held every October in the nations capitol for live music. Herbstrong was actually a fill-in band for the previously scheduled G.A.Y.N.G.S. who were unable to perform that day. When I witnessed this four-peice band they were complete with a percussionist, a drummer, and two DJs, and I was absolutely blown away. Mixing it live with worldly dub/reggae and classic rock/house remixes, Lance Herbstrong tagged all areas of the music spectrum during their set at ACL. Austin locals can check out Herbstrong at the official Skrillex after party this Saturday night Feb 5th on 5th street at The Republic Live.

Gautier - Spin That Record


Found this one through WhompingStereo earlier today and instantly threw it on repeat. This new track from Gautier is one of those that gets better as the track progresses, a definite electro-house hit. My guess is that this Norwegian's got a few more bangers up the sleeve in the near future.

Her Majesty and the Wolves - Glacier (Roksonix Remix)


Lead me to the light! Roksonix pulls off a great remix of an already amazing song. They create this mellow dub track from Her Majesty and the Wolves and pick up the beat a bit with some funky synths, added breakbeats and extra doses of wobble. Ex-Pussycat Doll/Her Majesty lead woman Kimberly Wyatt's beautiful vocals put the icing on this cake to create a natural hit. Be sure to check out various track verisions below, bon appetite!

New Track: DADA LIFE - White Noise and Red Meat



Earlier this week, swedish producers and DJ duo Dada Life leaked a new track entitled "White Noise and Red Meat." They have been hard at work in the studios of Sweden creating a new album for all us banana-heads. We had the pleasure of hearing samples of this new tune dropped at TAO this year, and finally we have a full track available. Sounds of "Unleash the F****** Dada" mixed with cowbells and heavy synths culminate to create a new classic in innovative Dada Life style.

Review: Wobbleland 2011 @ The Factory San Francisco


Last Saturday, the Wizard had the pleasure of tripping it up to San Fran to witness some of Dubstep's greatest in one of Frisco's most intimate settings. The massive-like lineup of artists that attended this years' Wobbleland included Skrillex, Nero, Datsik, 12th Planet, Jakwob and Kastle. The venue that hosted this Dubstep Massive was a little joint called The Factory, a known hotspot for electronic music within the bay area. The Factory had two stages set up, both of which were visible from an upper deck area. Tickets sold out weeks in advance for this low key event; and Vital packed The Factory tight full of steppers for an epic night of grime and epic dub drops.

After talking with some of the local wobbleheads, it was easy to see that a majority of the crowd came to see the late night headliners, Skrillex and Nero, both of whom went on at 1:30 AM on different stages. The Wizard arrived early to check some of the opening DJ's and get a good feel for the crowd and the venue. The crowd was a healthy mix of Electronic Music fans alike, packed full of what seemed like mostly local college students, all bringing positive vibes to add wealth to the sure to be memorable night.

Some of the opening acts to highlight from the evening are Minnesota, who dropped an epic remix of Rick Ross's "Hustilin'" and Getter, who got the night going with a track he called "Methadone Massacre," followed by J Rabbit and Tremourz' "Sexy Party." A little about this last track; when Getter turned the crowd onto this it made the entire venue feel like they were a part of the sexiest party of the year, and set a real tone for the night to come. Check it out below:

J Rabbit & Tremourz - Sexy Party

Another opener who absolutely killed the early half of the night had to be John Beaver aka Filthy Beaver. The Beaver brought the heat with remixes of Rhianna's "Rude Boy,"(TC Remix) Beastie Boys' "Sabatoge," Fenech-Soler's "Lies"(Doctor P Remix), and the latest At Dawn We Rage Remix of Deadmau5's "Sofi Needs a Ladder." Towards the latter part of his set, he managed to make us all tingle with that famous Rusko ft. Amber Coffman hit "Hold On"(Sub Focus Remix).

Fenech-Soler - Lies(Doctor P Remix)
Deadmau5 - Sofi Needs a Ladder(At Dawn We Rage Remix)
Rusko ft. Amber Coffman - Hold On(Sub Focus Remix)

Jakwob has to be another one of my favorite dubstep artists of all time. His set was nothing short of epic, playing a lot of his own remixes alongside classic hits. Some technical difficulties midway through his set left the crowd suspended in silence for a few moments, but after fumbling with equipment we were all instantly back to groovin'. Some classic tracks Jakwob dropped throughout his set:

Ellie Goulding - Starry Eyed(Jakwob Remix) dropped into
Deadmau5 ft. Kaskade - I Remember(Caspa Remix)
Ellie Goulding - Under the Sheets(Jakwob Remix)
Girl Unit - Wut
Kid Sister - Right Hand Hi(Caspa Remix)

Although most of the crowd seemed to be there to see Skrillex and Nero, one artist at the top of my list was 12th Planet. After unfortunately missing 12th at "Together As One" this year, the Wizard made it priority to check out the majority of his set, and ended up staying for the entire list, which was undeniably packed full of bangers. If you haven't checked out his latest mix tape (Keep Watch Vol. XXI), be sure to take a listen; it's a nonstop hit. I heard some of the hardest drops of the night from his set, which included many tracks he featured on the Keep Watch Mix. Below are a list of must haves:

DJ Sneak - Southern Boy(12th Planet & Flinch Remix)
Kano - Spaceship(Trolley Snatcha Remix)
Jinder - Youth Blood(12th Planet & Flinch Remix)
Rusko ft. Amber Coffman - Hold On(12th Planet Remix)
Flux Pavilion - I Can't Stop
Trolly Snatcha - Pass Me By

Bonus: Keep Watch Mix Vol. XXI

The end of 12th Planet's set was a seamless segway into the beginning of Skrillex's set, both of whom were on the smaller, second stage. The moment Skrillex went on, the crowd packed the floor tight, and 12th Planet and Skrillex performed "Needed Change," a recent produced collaboration track.

Skrillex has seemed to create his own style of Electronic Music, which is hard to categorize as one specific genre. It is a mix of symphonic dirty electro with screaming-hard bass dubstep drops and light-sounded self-sampled vocals; his style is a true innovation and hybrid of popular genres that tends to get everyone moving. His set from Wobbland was amazing to say the least, switching it up between all sorts of genres and proclaiming the quote of the night "Give it up for all house music!" moments before dropping tracks like Michael Jackson's "PYT" and a collection of new Feed Me songs(another huge artist on Mau5trap). He even enlightened us with his own new remix of "Cinema" from Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go. Skrillex set was ecelectic and extremely entertaining, as he mixed all genres and kept the crowd going, an impressive feat within the compounds of a dubstep massive. Some must haves from Skrillex's set:

12th Planet ft Skrillex - Needed Change
Skrillex - Rock N Roll
Skrillex - Kill Everybody
Pendulum - The Island Pt. II
Feed Me & Kill the Noise - Muscle Rollers      BANGER
Feed Me ft. Tasha Baxter - Cloudburn
iSquare - Hey Sexy Lady(Skrillex Remix)
Fake Blood - I Think I Like It(Tommie Sunshine Remix)

Bonus: Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go - Cinema(Skrillex Remix)      NEW TRACK

The Wizard ended the epic night by catching the later half of Nero's set, who are a group of two truly famous icons within the dub community. Nero has risen to becoming one of the greatest dub duos in the world, and they definitely reassured us all why they are the at the top after their headlining show this past Saturday. Like Skrillex, Nero strayed a bit from the conformity of the night, brining us tracks like Daft Punk's "Derezzed" and hits like Warp 1.9 mixed into MSTRKFT's remix of D.A.N.C.E. They brought it hard with their own hits as well, and managed to top the night off perfectly with their latest track, "Me and You." Some must have tracks from Nero's set:

N.E.R.D. & Daft Punk - Hypnotize U(Nero Remix)
Plan B - The Recluse(Nero Remix)
Nero - Innocence
Daft Punk - Derezzed
Bloody Beetroots ft. Steve Aoki - Warp 1.9
Justice - D.A.N.C.E.(MSTRKFT Remix)
Nero - Me and You

In conclusion, this year's Wobbland was an ultimate success. The night was filled with heavy bass and epic drops, and left the Wizard with ears ringing white noise for days. Great people, an awesome venue, and an even more amazing lineup added to a night to forever remember. With Skrillex dropping tracks like MJ's "PYT" to Nero giving us his Daft Punk "Derezzed" session, it's hard to look back and think of
Wobbleland as strictly a Dubstep Massive, because it had so much more to offer. All genres, from electro house to Drum n' Bass were covered, and the diversity brought out the best in the crowd, the artists, and the overall event as a whole. So I say bravo Wobbleland 2011, for I will forever have your bass running through me.

Review: Paul Oakenfold @ Sutra 01/20/10



What's there not to say about Paul Oakenfold. He has been a true pioneer and revolutionist of Electronic Dance Music over the years. This past Thursday, Sutra in Costa Mesa, Ca had the pleasure of hosting this veteran spin artist, and residents of Orange County welcomed him with open arms as he threw down a flawless set full of bangers. Sutra has been setting up quite the stacked lineup lately, with a roster consisting of artists such as AC Slater in the recent past and Steve Aoki and Dada Life in the near future.

The venue seemed to suck the Wizard in as the opening DJ, Bryan Sage, dropped Wolfgang Gartner's hit "Flashback" and warmed up the crowd with some funky electro house. The pit filled up quick with fans who seemed to all have a big smile on their face and a groovy bump to their step. A highlight from this opening DJ's set had to have been his transition into "I Said," the Chris Lake and Deadmau5 collaboration track, a true classic that got the floor poppin' early on. Both Tracks available below:


Wolfgang Gartner - Flashback(Original Mix)

Deadmau5 & Chris Lake - I Said(Michael Woods Remix)

After making our rounds and rapping with some of the OC's finest EDM fanatics, the crowd seemed to generally have a high sense of anxiety and suspense as they prepared for the arrival from Oakenfold, who showed up fashionably late around midnight. He quickly grabbed ahold of the entire club however, and bumped some of the greatest music that took us all to another level.

When you see go go dancers in Pink tu-tus, an oversized disco ball, flying confetti, and a Coyote-Ugly style roster of cocktail waitress waving giant Grey Goose bottles filled with colored flares on a Thursday night, you can't help to think for a second that you're in someplace like Vegas, and Sutra truly succeeds in giving that amazing vibe.

Oakenfold, despite being in the works of a new album, didn't hesitate on playing the hits. Early in the night he dropped Benny Benassi's "My Otherside," a classic remix of a legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers track, and one that got the crowd screaming beyond the top of their lungs. Another one of the countless highlights of Paul O's set came with a unforgettable timed drop of visuals, lighting, confetti and a remix from another one of Benassi's hits, "Spaceship." Keeping in going into the AM, Oakenfold hit it hard with more classic club remixes such as those of Empire of the Sun's "Walking on a Dream" and The Killers' "Mr. Brightside." The night couldn't have ended any better, while Oakenfold played out a club mix of U2's "With or Without You" while the lights  slowly brightened within the club, letting last call be known.

Some classic club remix's as well as some of the Wizard's favorites:

Red Hot Chili Peppers - My Otherside (Benny Benassi Remix)

Benny Benassi - Spaceship (feat. Kelis Apl De Ap & Jean - Baptiste) 

Benny Benassi - Spaceship (EDX Remix)

Empire of the Sun - Walking on a Dream (Kaskade Club Remix)

Empire of the Sun - Walking on a Dream (Treasure Fingers Remix)  

The Killers - Mr. Brightside (Jacques Lu Cont Thin White Duke Remix)

U2 - With or Without You (Sebastien Bennet Remix) 

Overall, in my handful of visits to Sutra for artists, I have yet to be disappointed. Paul Oakenfold absolutely killed it this Thursday, and showed Orange County how a veteran throws down a set. Good vibes, beautiful people, great music and a perfect venue tied everything together for an unforgettable night. I definitely lost my voice from the barrage of classic remixes that Paul O threw down, and I know theres at least a couple hundred others with a similar situation. From the looks of it, especially with a stocked up-and-coming lineup and dates, Sutra will be my new hotspot, a definite must try for any fan of EDM in So-Cal, especially those trying to avoid the massives with more of a personal experience.
