Rene Amesz – Spinnerei

Some would say 2012 was the year of deep, I would say we’re just getting started. As with all things in life movements and energies never just hit once, they tend to come back full circle, never quite the same but if you look closely you’ll always find the similarities or pattens. These days you’ll find the deep parties in BK, LA warehouses and of course Vegas continues to be at the forefront of EDM. However, the genre is seeing some incredible innovations in sound that the will propel not only the genre itself but music in general once it influences the mainstream.

Remember what Hip Hop did for low-end in music? Well if you don’t, before Hip Hop all those wonderful subs and big kick sounds we can’t get enough of didn’t exist, not consistently and on purpose at least. In many ways the genre expanded the spectrum and focused attention on otherwise overlooked frequencies. It was a total experiment in sound but it worked wonderfully. Deep is doing the same expect going even lower than Hip Hop by taking advantage of the innovations in speakers and processing to capture low-end movement most people haven’t learned to love or appreciate yet. Go to a club with a FunKtion One system and see someone like Claptone or Kaskade and watch your whole body become transparent in the face of the most massive bass you’ve ever heard, you will literally be overtaken by sound. Oh yeah when you go don’t stand in the back like a fu*&ing poser, get right in the middle with all the girls tripping balls and zoning out, get right in the belly of the beast and feel the bass, it’s mind-blowing, no fib.

One of the best parts about growing up in NYC during the golden age was how alive music was. Anyone who was serious about their music basically had the equivalent of a small club sound system in their car. Whenever a new record dropped there was a 98% chance the first time you heard was when someone drove by blasting it in their car, it was amazing for music to be so alive like that. It allowed Hip Hop to shine because not only was there a lot of money being spent to make the music by the labels and artist but there was also a lot of money being put into listening to the music by the fans.

What I’m saying is that to listen to some of these records you gotta get the fr*$k out there. You won’t get it listening to tracks on your shitty ass Macbook speakers or ear buds, as a matter of fact if that’s your only source of sound you need to re-evaluate your whole existence and step it up. Go to Cielo in New York, Smart Bar in Chicago, Avalon in LA, U Street in DC, follow obsessive club owners like David Grutman of Liv who care and stay on the cutting edge of sound, go see the DJ’s who know their shit, look for FunKtion One systems, ride around with the friend that spent an extra 4 grand to upgrade the system in his/her car, be around people who take sound serious, respect the game and experience music as it should be heard. Buy some speakers and brag about that shit, this is music we’re talking about folk!

All day sipping sipping Chandon, girls around me on Don Juan…”

That’s how you wanna feel on a Friday boy. This track is massive, I need to hear this on blast very soon. All the Brooklyn DJs playing this weekend, bump this. Enjoy.

Dragonette – Fire In Your New Shoes ft. Kaskade

Its the beginning of a new year and it feels really good already, this New Years weekend was really long, and lots of fun don’t get me wrong but I was ready to get going with 2012! What better way to start off 2012 but with the seductive and kick ass Dragonette, this song explains exactly how I feel right now, there is definitely a fire that’s gettin’ me moving in every way possible.

While I light a fire in your new shoes If you should smile and look so surprised While I light a fire in your new shoes Let’s hope that your soles don’t burn to the floor
I light the fire
I light the fire
Buttons are busted we’re decorated We make an ornament with gold and silver plating So whats the latest we raise a fever We’re just all red inside that’s all to see here” 

A lot of people seemed in a daze on this first Monday of the new year, almost as though they didn’t know what to do with themselves.  I suggest to those of you that don’t know how to get the new year started to press play on this jam and get that fire growing inside of you until your burning in the right direction!

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Novembre 2011

In my book there’s nothing better for a persons development then having to perform under pressure. The bigger the audience, the higher the stakes, the more to lose, the better. There’s something about those situations that requires you to simply man up and perform. It begs you to destroy your comfort zone, fail and constantly push yourself to get better at whatever it is you do. It also requires you to be out there all the time, in the mix, on hypothetical stage performing, trying new things and pushing it.

It doesn’t matter if your giving a power point presentation or at a bar making a move on a girl that caught your eye, it’s all the same. My friend D put me on to a Eleanor Roosevelt quote that has had a major impact on me lately – “Do one thing every day that scares you.” I love that and in my journey toward complete fearlessness I couldn’t agree more. Go out there, if it makes you uncomfortable do it just to feel that and conquer it, that exercise alone is worth gold. On the same token, there are many of us who want to be out there so much that we neglect the equally important self reflection aspect of things…

Do you need sometime on your own?
Do you need sometime all alone?
Everybody needs sometime on their own,
Don’t you know you need sometime all alone…? – Guns & Roses (November Rain)
Coming from an 80’s Rock star, the epitome of being in the mix 24/7 and meeting expectations, I’d say Axell was in the zone when he wrote that. Absence makes the heart grow fond of anything but it also gives you time to reflect and understand things on your own, without influence and that’s where the true answers lie. So you might be asking what does all of this have to do with LMDM? Well, one of the few times I get to fall back on my own are when I make these tapes and Stephs musical selections always have a way of getting these thoughts going. I’ve got another 3 or 4 hours before I’m in another wonderfully uncomfortable situation but right now I’m just going to kick it with LMDM and indulge in the ease of temporary solitude, enjoy.

Kaskade – Stars Align Tomorrow (Feat. Dimitri Vegas, Dada Life & Like Mike)

I’m at Mccaren airport recovering from a wild weekend of music in Vegas. I saw Kaskade at the zoo aka Marquee on Friday night and the place was jam packed, snow machines went off at 4 am, the energy was through the roof, it was fu$*ng epic. Its great to see so many heads in places where it’s all about the music.  The next day I woke up hurting but apparently there’s no break time in Vegas so we put on the mandatory shorts and checked out Pete Tom rocking it at Encore beach which was half naked girls everywhere, banging electro house, amazing weather and great vibes.

Apparently Vegas is the new spot for electronic nu-rave, I mean every where you look theres a billboard announcing the next big DJ in town and music is in full effect. Music is highly undervalued these days so shout out to all the Vegas clubs shelling out big dollars to host DJs.

Its not for everybody but if you want to listen to some banging music and can get passed steroid nation, uncomfortably horny MILFs, cheese ball bottle service people and wanna be porn stars you’ll find a place where dance music is thriving day and night. If you want to listen to Bon Iver, read a good book and write poetry to your girlfriend Id look elsewhere. I don’t usually post club music but Kaskade dropped this track and the entire place went bonkers. This is pretty much what youll hear in the big rooms and man does it hit hard, enjoy.
