Wow, something very very different from Calvin Harris. This new track, Slow Acid is like Bassnectar meets Daft Punk meets Chemical Brothers...I know stay with me here. When I got the notification that he released a new track I was expecting the usual vocal mixed tracks that he usually makes. When I listened to it, I had to check if I had clicked the right track because I did NOT expect this from him. This track is said to be the the 4th single in his new album set to be released in November. With this track sounding awesome like this, I can't imagine what the new album will be like! I'll keep you guys posted.

Just been notified that Cazzette did an early release of their new track on Spotify called Blind Heart. Not quite loving it unfortunately. But that doesn't mean I'm hating them already. Check it out.

As promised, I give you guys another set of tracks this week. Some of the these tracks like The Chainsmokers' #Selfie were released a while back, but I thought I'd still put them on the playlist. I also got to listen to Avicii's new single with UK singer Robbie Williams, I am pretty disappointed with this one. It sounds very pop even though he said he's going with a more "rock" theme on the next album. I don't quite know where Avicii's going with this one, but hey he's always known to be experimenting on new sounds and they usually turn out good so I'll wait and see what the rest of the tracks will be like for his new album set for spring of 2015. I'm sure a lot of you have also heard about Avicii taking some time off due to health reasons, mostly due to drinking. He has lost quite a bit of weight, mostly because he continued to work even after surgery to remove his gall bladder. We wish him all the best and a speedy recovery. Meanwhile, he will be replaced at Escape Hallow's Eve by Armin Van Buuren which I think isn't a bad deal at all if you've already bought the tickets. Here's Avicii's latest single "The Days".
Steve Aoki - Neon Future. 1
Wow! Steve Aoki, with his new album released September 29, 2014, the collaborations are creative, the album did not sound redundant at all. Very club-like, party style sounds, cake throwing theme, in other words, very very Steve Aoki. My personal faves include tracks #2, #3 (with Fall Out Boy, who knew that would work out?) and #9. You can listen to the entire album on Spotify or purchase it on iTunes and see for yourselves. Steve Aoki will be on tour starting on October 10, 2014, for a complete listing click here.
Well that's all for now, 'til next week. Hope you guys enjoy the tracks, you can listen to these tracks on the go by downloading the Soundcloud and Spofity app and adding my playlists. Don't forget that you can also connect with me by following me on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Soundcloud and Spofity, just click the links on the side of my blog.

Porter Robinson released his second album Worlds on August 12,2014 and it did not disappoint. Following the success of his previous album Spitfire in 2011, Porter Robinson takes electronic dance music to another level. Listening to the entire album was definitely not a bore, I did not just listen to it once, I listened to it over and over and over again. There is only one other album that had me doing that: Avicii's True. Honestly, if I have to compare both, Porter Robinson's album is better. Unlike EDM albums that have been released lately (let's not get specific with genres and subgenres here, don't be sensitive), every track here sounds and feels different from one another, in other words it's not redundant. At only 22 years old, this DJ from North Carolina is already topping charts. I can't simply pick a favorite track because I'm loving all of them, but I guess I have to pick 2...that would be Flicker and Fresh Static Snow. I'm not surprised he made Flicker, being a "Japanophile" and all. He is currently on Tour and will be in LA on September 13, 2014 and in Pomona on September 14, 2014.

Released on June 13, 2014 Tiesto does it again with A Town Called Paradise. This album is definitely a lot better than his previous album: Club Life Vol. 3 Stockholm which was released last year. While yes most of the tracks include vocals, it's a different feel from the usual Tiesto tracks we hear. I know some people are not liking where electronic music is going because now they say even Tiesto is being drawn into 'pop-ish' tracks. Some even hate the term 'EDM' and how tracks are now being played on mainstream radio. I say we should just embrace it and welcome it with open arms. The fact that it's on mainstream radio only means that more people are being drawn to EDM and are actually liking it. As the saying goes, the more the merrier. Change is good, learn to evolve people. Anyhow back to the album review, I can't seem to pick a favorite track because they're all so good, but alright a few of my favorites include tracks 4 and 5 and really loving track 12 the only one without vocals. Tiesto will be at Hardfest 2014 this coming August 3. For tickets and info click here.
