First two songs of today. At first I had trouble finding any songs, but after searching everywhere, I ended up having to make a tough decision on which two were worthy posts. As a result, both of these songs are must haves.
Nero ft. Sub - Promises (Skrillex & Nero Remix)
Yes, Dubstep. I know I bash this genre often, but I admittedly dabble with it every once in a while. This song is one of those occasions. I am surprised it hasn't been posted yet. This song came out a little while ago, but this is the official HQ version that came out probably a week or so ago, and it is too dope. Listen.
Arty - Around the World (Original Mix)
This song is too good for words. Arty, one of the best in trance right now in my opinion, has really outdone himself with this song. There has been so much hype surrounding it, and it fulfills the expectations.

So this is NOT Avicii's vocal edit of his birdy track "Penguin". Now that we have that cleared up, Alex Prigenzi's edit is spot on and sounds the same.
Sebastian Brandt - Ashes (Original Mix)
This is an intense trance track. It has been played by Armin everywhere, and even though he kind of has to play it since it is on his label, it is a really well done, energetic tune. Give it a listen.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Yves V & Angger Dimas – Madagascar (Original Mix)
This song puts together all of these artists' sounds and makes it a complete banger. It has the Afrojack type of feel. Definitely worth a listen.

Sorry for the absence, a beverage was spilled on my computer and it turned off for several days...
Anyway, I have some catching up to do, so here are two new(er) songs that I think are really good, and come from two guys who I think are going to get much bigger in the near future.
Cahill ft. Joel Edwards - In Case I Fall (R3hab Mix)
R3hab always brings a dope electronic sound to his remixes, but this one is a little toned back and the vocals make it even better. Smooth track.
Tommy Trash - The End (Original Mix)
Tommy Trash has come out with some ridiculous remixes this summer - however, he finally came out with this much anticipated track recently. It has a quasi-arab sound to it, mixed with his unique electronic style. I love the drops and the energy.

“Curren$y has one of rap’s most relaxed drawls– a sleepy-eyed, carefree ramble that slides effortlessly under tracks rather than bulldozing through them. But on his past few efforts, he’s pushed that drawl into some unexpected places. On the two Pilot Talk albums, he dug deep into the lava-lamp psych-soul of producer Ski Beatz. And on the Covert Coup mixtape, he navigated the broken, refracted boom-bap of the Alchemist. But “This Is the Life” doesn’t push Curren$y’s voice in any way-out directions; it’s just a calm, breezy bit of lush soul-rap from producer Monsta Beatz. (Side note: If you’re a producer with “Beatz” in your name, Curren$y will apparently work with you. Get ready, Swizz.)
With a track like that, it’s pretty easy for Curren$y to just do what he does, and that’s exactly what happens. His style isn’t a punchline-intensive one. Instead, it’s a laid-back amble, a twisty run of barely connected boasts and musings. You can’t quote him without using ellipses: “Ridin’ up the block, they think I’m movin’ in a Autobot/ Hop out, photo op/ Scan for the cops; if they not about…” With its sundazed R&B chorus, the end result isn’t too far removed from what Spitta’s buddy Wiz Khalifa has been doing lately. It’s stoned summertime pop music, and it washes over you like waves over your toes when you fall asleep in a beach chair.” - Tom Breihan
First off, sorry for the lack of posts as of late. I apologize. As for the tracks I bring you today...
An Armin Van Buuren remix album is bound to be amazing. Everyone has heard the Avicii remix to Drowning, which was out of control good, but the rest of the 30 or so, yes 30, remixes of Armin's songs are awesome. Also, a good chunk of the remixes are not hardcore trance, so that is a very nice change up to the Armada's arsenal (Ha - ha). These two tracks in particular stood out and they have been floating around for a while.
Tristan Garner's remix to Feels so Good is so dope. I have been trying to find this song for over a month now, but of course Armada made it impossible to find before the release date. It brings you great vocals and a fantastic house feeling.
The other song I enjoy from this album is Shogun's remix of Take a Moment. As you all know I am an avid Armin fan - however, Shogun is one of my favorite trance guys around and Winter Kills is an amazing trance vocalist. Together, these three elements combine to make an extremely smooth song. Check it out

I know, Tech House, not my preference. However, despite the lack of tunes that have been coming out lately, this song really sticks out. I think it is extremely well put together and it is definitely a song to groove to. The slight vocals in there give a good touch as well. If you want to start dunking your paws into the tech house genre, this is a good starting point. Enjoy.
As a little extra, check out this additional tech house track. It has gotten much attention over the past month and it is also a great, slightly tech song that has some interesting vocal surprises and a good drop. Check it out.

Hey all, works got me busy so I will be posting several songs at once from now on most likely. There are a bunch of good ones again tonight.
First off is Truelove - Rock the Cashbah (Original Mix). If you think this tune samples the classic Clash song... you are absolutely right. Even though this song is a little older, it is extremely well done. With just the right amount of funk, this house song is sure to please the crowd. It is a must have.
Okay, this song is much different than most because it is kind of a funky/minimal house song that has very unique vocals. Gramophonedzie & Joey Negro ft. Shea Soul released No Sugar (Original Mix) a bit ago and it has been on fire. This so is so different than everything else out there and the jazz element is really fresh. Let's swing dance.

Fred Falke is a seasoned producer and it comes to light in this remix as he focuses on development rather than rushing his beats. This track sums up his production style and will keep you birds listening and guessing.
Here is Martin Solveig's new single.. I must say pretty mainstream so this is for you commercial birds out there you will sweat this track as much as "Hello".
Birdies, today I am putting a few songs within one post. The First is Mord Fustang's new song called A New World (Original Mix). Yes, it is dubstep, but you know that Mord Fustang always hits it with intense electronic vibes, making it an amazing listen. He is one of the few dubstep guys I really like, and this song is so sick.
The next song comes from Funkagend & Adam K, and it is called Drift (Original Club Mix). This is an awesome progressive track that has some electronic vibes, a great build up, and a great amount of energy. I really love the smooth sound before the drop - this is one of my favorite songs in a while.
Another great song that came out today was Reset! - Calypsoul (Original Mix). This song is the definition of funky. I am digging this new funk/disco kind of trend because these songs are so easy to dance to. This song gets a little intense at parts, but the consistency of funk throughout makes it such a unique and dope track.
Finally, there is Nicky Romero's new song, Keyboard (Original Mix). I am not usually a huge Romero fan because he is way too electronic in certain songs, but it is way tuned down in this track and it has progressive elements. This is a sick summer song and, in my opinion, it is kind of anthemy. Give it a listen.

The remix album of Destineak's Calling Your Name was just released, yielding remixes by the likes of Lazy Rich and Ian Carey in particular. Lazy Rich remixed Just the Music in his great electronic style, making it a pretty intense song with solid vocals. Ian Carey's remix of Calling Your Name is, in my opinion, the best on the album. The song is extremely smooth with great build ups and good vocals, making it an extremely easy listen.
Just the Music (Lazy Rich Remix)
Calling Your Name (Ian Carey Remix)
Orjan Nilsen is a trance producer from Norway that gets a lot of respect around the electronic music scene. He just dropped his latest album called In My Opinion on June 3rd, and it is receiving a lot of attention from DJs such as Armin Van Buuren. While I Wait is one of the better songs off of the album - it is an upbeat, groovy track that is great for the dance floor. Give it a listen, and check out the album if you like Nilsen's sound.

Another great trance track by Kyau & Albert, remixed by none other than the great duo of Super8 & Tab, who always deliver quality songs. This track in particular is no different, with its good vocals and almost gritty feel, it is definitely a great song for both the avid trance fans and dance music fans in general. Give it a listen.

Pierce Fulton is only 18 years old, and he is already making noise in the electronic music scene. This song is so soothing it is unbelievable. Just as you are beginning to relax with this one, he hits you with and intense vibe that make it an amazing progressive track. This kid has got a lot of talent, and he will definitely keep making great songs like this one. Check it out.

Mark Knight & Funkagenda are two awesome producers. However, Sebastien Krieg took this track and really made it a progressive listen that is easy on the ears. This house track is really groovy and almost hypnotizing. Also, it picks up towards the end of the song, which gives the track some necessary energy. Give it a listen.
