End of the week playlist: Grandtheft

grandtheft trap jersey club edm deep house

Portland welcomes Toronto based DJ and producer Grandtheft tonight at downtown’s Whiskey Bar. With him will come a spate of dance music genres that are bound to elicit a couple of “HEY” chants from the crowd  – a sampling of his songs have been added to the Pump U playlist, listen below for trap (Technicolor edit, Keep it 100 ), jersey club (Heavy Hitterz), big room (Close remix) and some top notch top 40 remixes.

This end of the week playlist is well-rounded

Golden Features - Tell Me Ft. Nicole Millar (Bixel Boys Remix)

A smattering of upbeat-yet-not-quite-bangers today. Particularly excited about the latest remix from Bixel Boys, who continuously put out dance-floor friendly tracks without necessarily adhering to a specific genre or trend, something that’s pretty refreshing in the Soundcloud universe. Also want to call out The Rooftop Boys proving themselves once again with a remix of David Guetta (their only other sound was the out-of-nowhere take on Kanye West’s Bound 2, which you can hear a little further down the playlist).

  1. BIXEL BOYS: Golden Features – Tell Me Ft. Nicole Millar (Bixel Boys Remix)
  2. Oliver Heldens: Can’t Stop Playing (Oliver Heldens & Gregor Salto Remix) [Preview]
  3. David Guetta & Showtek – Bad (The Rooftop Boys Remix)
  4. Long & Harris – Perception [EDM.com Exclusive]
  5. Bondax: All I See (TCTS Remix)[Annie Mac, BBC Radio 1 rip]
  6. Chilly Gonzales – You Can Dance

End of the week playlist: gonna give it to ya straight

confetti

No theme, no frills, no dissatisfaction here. This here is just made for your Friday night.

Starting off with the latest high-energy disco house song from Solidisco (which infectiously makes use of that instantly recognizable yet unidentifiable “woop woop” sample), followed by some top-notch Belarbi remixes and a hard-hitting but overwhelmingly positive remix of Bound 2, this selection will not do you wrong. Might even make you feel like that picture right up there.

“If Jesus was two guys, he’d be Bixel Boys ”

Bixel Boys

A quote from the eloquent Yolanda Be Cool, describing the breaks-infused b-side Clutch from their upcoming EP. Why think of a title for a post when there’s a line that beautiful sitting smack in the middle of the page?

After The Bixel Boys track there’s an aggressive disco remix from Yuksek, then smattering of indie dance/deep house newness from Lane 8 and Le Youth. Round it out with Zhu’s remix of Lana Del Rey, which delivers an immaculately stripped down remix with some well-timed, in your face horn stabs.

  1. BIXEL BOYS – Clutch (Original Mix)
  2. MONTMARTRE – Inside of me – YUKSEK remix
  3. Eric Prydz – Liberate (Lane 8 Remix)
  4. Le Youth – Feel Your Love (ft. Javeon)
  5. ZHU x LANA DEL REY – West Coast.
  6. AMTRAC – ALL NIGHT (ORIGINAL MIX)
