Skirt Jam of the Week – Ehrenchrona – This is So Good

7 Feb

I don’t know how Sweden does it.  America breeds great baseball players.  Canada breeds great hockey players.  Kenya breeds great marathon runners.  And Sweden…well Sweden breeds DJs.  First Avicii, then Alesso, now this guy, Ehrencrona.  I can’t figure out how old he is or anything about him, but this is his first song so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s about 14 since apparently they install DJ decks in their baby cribs over there.  Amazing debut from this guy, and I love the name.  Very simple, and exactly what you think as you listen to it.  Enjoy.

Skirt Jam of the Week – White Panda – Deep in the Levels

27 Jan

As Avicii and especially Levels gets bigger and bigger, turned into pop hits by Flo Rida and mixed to commercials, new mashups of the song seem to hit the web by the hour.  No use looking at any of them, because this one is the best by a mile.  For some reason, Adel’s sad breakup songs seems to lend themselves perfectly to pumping happy Euro house music.  This one is no different.  Enjoy the weekend everyone.

Bonnaroo 2012 Rumored Lineup

18 Jan

Take this with a grain of salt, but Glide Magazine, a somewhat reputable source (in that they’ve correctly predicted the majority of the lineup the last few years) has compiled a list of the rumored headliners for Bonnaroo this year.  And: Wow.  The headliners:  Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Fleet Foxes, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Eagles, Phish, Radiohead and Prince.  Not to mention the hundred or so other bands that always frequent these festivals regardless of year, like Avicii, Childish Gambino, Pretty Lights, Girl Talk, etc.  I never thought I’d love Bonnaroo only because I always thought of it as strictly a hippy jamband fest, but that’s clearly no longer been the case over the last few years with the lineups, which feature bands for every type of music.  Official lineup and tickets go on sale in mid-February.  After the jump, I included the full article with more lineup news.   Continue reading

Skirt Jam of the Week – Avicii & Alesso – Rules Have Changed

6 Jan

Avicii has done it again, this time collaborating with fellow Swedish DJ Alesso for “Rules Have Changed,” which he released right before his NYE show in NYC this year.  This was Avicii’s New Year’s Eve: He played a 3 hour set from 9:30-12:30 and rang in the new year at a venue overlooking Niagara Falls, then jumped in a helicoptor which took him to his NYC show on Pier 39, where he landed on the roof, descended down, and played another 3 hour show going until 4AM, kicking it off with Levels as the crowd went nuts.  At 1:25AM he tweeted, “This is the best night of life! In a helicoptor over Manhattan.”  Is there anyone who has a better life than Avicii?  His “work” is a 3 hour shift once ever couple of nights, standing on a stage in exotic locations all over the world.  The rest of the time he just makes awesome songs and parties.  Forget Earl Woods trying to train his kid since birth to be a golfer, my kid is gonna have a DJ deck in his crib the day he’s born. 

Electric Daisy Carnival Looks Fun

22 Nov

After seeing Avicii this weekend literally all I want to do is see more house music concerts.  Turns out there is something called Electric Daisy Carnival, which is a three day concert featuring basically everyone who is good in the house music world.  And its held in….Las Vegas. The only thing holding me back from buying a ticket immediately is the 75% chance that I would literally die if I went.  If you don’t want to go after watching this video something is wrong with you.

Skirt Jam of the Week – Avicii – Levels

5 Oct

You all may know Avicii from his remixes over the years of hit songs.  Usually, an awesome song comes out and then about a week later you suddenly hear a house music version of that song pumping through the bar or club, or that song mashed up with something else.  Avicii quickly built a name for himself as one of the best on that front, but in the last couple years he’s started putting out his own original songs, and Levels is one of them.  Unbelievable.  It starts a little slow, but from about a minute in and on it just gets better and better.  Listen to this and you will immediately get promoted at work, bang a model on your way home, and win the lottery.  Enjoy.
