An Official Intro – PJ

No Comments 19 June 2012

Greetings all.  As the newest member of the SlaptheBass team, I felt I should give a quick introduction to the types of things you can expect to see from me.  As you can tell from some earlier posts, I am very much into exactly what the other guys are (and hopefully what you are). This is an opportunity to show maybe where I stray a bit from the norm. Let’s get this mini mix started with three tracks I want you to hear.  The first is from long standing members of the electronic dance scene .  This guy girl duo recently put out several covers to thank their loyal fans. One stood out like a rose in a daisy bouquet.  Data Romance has covered ’ “Clap Hands” to make an ethereal trip through this chilled down re-imagining of a great track.  They have also covered Deftones, , and Johnny Cash for this effort.

Data Romance – “Clap Hands (Tom Waits Cover)”

Next up is a DJ Steve remix of Girls’ Generation track, “Mr. Taxi.”  This one is straight club: Pump your fist, drink your vodka waters, and hit the floor for the hook. We all need a little more K-Pop in our life, and this is a diluted version of it, but still fun.

Girls’ Generation – “Mr. Taxi (Aoki Remix)”

This final track gets my vote because it’s Portal related.  ’s mashup “Still Alive ( vs )” is a brostep mix that is sure to annoy your parents and knock the Skrillex right out of you.  He plays with empty space a bit making the track sound like it’s taking deep breaths and getting ready for the big drops.  Fun tracks all three, and I hope you enjoy them.

TheFatRat – “Still Alive (Zedd vs. GLaDOS)”

Sure it’s only Monday night, but if your week is anything like mine you need something to carry you through, so here’s a mix to get you to the end of you week.  Start off with a new track from youngster producer called “Icarus”.  Next up a remix of the most annoying song (my opinion) by the most unannoying (fact)–the outcome is good.  Thirdly an excellent mix by the enigmatic London producers .  Followed up by StB favorite ’s take on Luke Abbott’s “Brazil”.  And lastly ’s haunting remix of ’s “Suffocation”.  Enjoy your week!
