Track of the Day — Stranger feat. Sam Dew (Brooks and Millar Bootleg)
So pumped for today!! Brooks and Millar are going to be playing for FREE tonight at The Short Stop. They will be opening for a special guest Dirtybird headliner who will be comin in hot from Miami. You will not want to miss this one. Brooks and Millar have been hard at work making tunes for their upcoming EP release (more on that later in the week) as well as a couple of remixes/ bootlegs. Most recently they just finished a bootleg of Stranger feat. Sam Dew by Skrillex. Im not sure if you have heard the original but I will link it down below. I highly recommend it. It is such an epic track that just sort of takes you on a crazy journey of electronic music and divergent soundscapes that all seem to fit perfectly together. The Brooks and Millar bootleg takes all of the essential elements of the original and re imagines it leaving behind some of the dubstep and elctro sounds giving it more of a breakbeat feel while at the same time making it an extremely dancefloor friendly tune.
What can I say about this other than YES!! Maybe I have been watching too much of the WWE but YES YES YES! Dirtybird have done it again with this latest collaboration of Justin Martin and Eats Everything. The track titled “Kong” is one of two that the duo put together on this latest EP. You wanna talk about a track that takes you on a journey? Kong will take you there and back again and then some. I love the album art for this too. I strangely reminds me of a recurring dream I used to have when I was a little kid!!
As I mentioned earlier Brooks and Millar will be playing a free show tonight at The Short Stop with one of the Dirtybird Players. They are going to be dropping a bunch of their new songs from their forthcoming EP release so you wont want to miss this opportunity. Click the banner above for more info!
Track of the Day — Bambounou – Ignition (Laurent Garnier Remix)
Happy Monday everyone. Big thanks to Mr. Puzl for coming in and holding things down last week. Been getting ready for a exciting week this week. Starting with the Track of the Day brought to you from Bambounou via 50 Weapons Records and Techno God Laurent Garnier. Felt like getting into a little techno this week and couldnt resist the deep melodic tone and almost trance like vibe to this tune. Definitely one to keep those late late nights going well into the morning.
Tomorrow we also have some very exciting things happening. Brooks & Millar will be opening up for a secret guest Dirtybird artist Tuesday April 1st @ The Short Stop in Echo Park. FREEEEEEE Click the banner below for more details. Tomorrow the blog This Song Slaps will be featuring a bootleg of theirs so make sure you head over there to check that out as well. Plus an announcement about the next LAMP event coming on Wednesday
You ever get that feeling that you just cant seem to find your way? Well Kill Frenzy has got the answer for you in the form of his latest track “Tittie Compass”. Besides it being a wicked title for a track this song has got all of the elements that make up a perfect house track. Kill Frenzy has been fricking killing it as of late with his releases on Turbo Records, this one from Hypercolour as well as Dirtybird!! If you like this track check out some of his other stuff over on SoundCloud
This next track comes to you from Booka Shade. If you have never seen this duo perform do yourself a favor and put them on your list of acts to see. Coming to you out of Germany these guys have been filling the dancefloors with their tunes and remixes for more than 20 years. The track titled “Crossing Boarders” has been remixed by several of EDM’s biggest house guys. The one I chose for this weeks mix was put together by a name that is no stranger to the LAMP Track of the Day Kolombo. Its got a punchy little baseline along with some funky sounding synths and vocals that sound so good together you cant help but tap your feet to this beat!!
Finally DONT FORGET!!!! This Saturday I will be DJing at Exchange LA along with Techno Legends and Headliners Adam Beyer and Paul Ritch!! Click the flyer for tickets. Click HERE for more info.
