Now Playing: Avicii – “Wake Me Up” ft. Aloe Blacc

17 Jun

If you haven’t had a chance to listen to this just yet, do it now! I totally dig this, Avicii gone country (yes those who went to Ultra it wasn’t a joke). Give a listen to “Wake Me Up” which features the soulful Aloe Blacc. This is going to crossover so many different radio formats; I’d so love to see this hit number one on multiple ones.

And if you haven’t spent time listening to Aloe Blacc, sure get over to itunes, Spotify, to get his music and go see one of his shows; you owe it to yourself.  Trust me.

DJ Roger Gangi – Holiday House (Download)

3 Dec


If you’ve been to STK over at The Cosmopolitan for dinner or drinks, chances are more than likely you’ve been listening to the beats of my buddy, DJ Roger Gangi. I always love when Roger puts together a new mix, and he doesn’t disappoint with his Holiday House 2011 made especially for the season and all the good peeps that work at the Vegas hot spot.

Video: More Madeon

21 Oct

Back in May I couldn’t get enough of his “Raise Your Weapon” remix, in July he dropped his “Pop Culture’ mash-up and now comes Part 1 of a trailer he uploaded a little over a week ago.  Let the legend of Madeon continue to grow.

 

Now Playing: David Guetta & Afrojack – “Pandemonium”

24 Jun

I think this should be the theme song for this weekend in Las Vegas. Going to be exactly that, pandemonium.

Revisited: Coachella 2011 via @IMWITHTHEDEEJAY

22 Apr

It’s a great day as a good friend of mine and fellow music lover, Angela (@IMWITHTHEDEEJAY), becomes the first guest blogger on Do You Hear The Music and shares her first Coachella experience in words and video.  Angela has one of the coolest blogs I’ve come across and always has fun, interesting and inspiring posts as well as the latest and greatest from DJ Vice.  Check out the below and then visit her blog and follow her on Twitter.

Coachella 2011.

I’m no stranger to packed crowds, pounding beats and rhythmic drum patterns and quite candidly house music, nightlife and large crowds make me feel at home; so much so it’s why I started my blog, rightfully titled: IMWITHTHEDEEJAY.  No further explanation needed.

Going to Coachella for the first time alongside DJ VICE proved to me that this festival truly has something for everyone. I was quite surprised just how many DJ sets were scheduled during the weekend line-up and thus spent a lot of time checking them out.

What impressed me the most about Coachella was the variety of music ranging from indie, house and dub step to R&B and hip-hop.  I learned about some new artists, such as Leftfield, while also appreciating artists I was already familiar with even more after hearing their songs live combined with their stage presence (Chromeo, The Strokes, Cut Copy).

Here is a short video I put together to share some of the highlights on my experience and exactly why I plan to go back every year.  Enjoy.

My Best and Worst of Coachella 2011

best surprise moment : Usher & Paul McCartney on stage during AfroJack’s house set

worst moment : the moment I felt the urge to pee & knew I was going to hold it ALL night! Yuck on portable bathrooms.

best performance to dance to : Cut Copy & Chromeo

best performance to jump for : AfroJack

best performance overall : Kanye West

best songs: “Original” Leftfield, “Needy Girl” Chromeo, Swedish House Mafia “Save the World”

most overused house song : “Awooga” Calvin Harris

most disappointing performance : Tinie Tempah

best fashion piece I saw : crochet white fringe vest with white glowsticks tied to each piece.

worst fashion: going barefoot

best overall: the great choice in music – you can’t even manage to hear everyone you would like to because there are so many stages & performances.

worst overall: DUST = allergies, scratchy eyes, watery nose and a layer of film all over you.

Don’t bring next year: Any “professional” DSLR camera – they won’t let you in with it.

Pack next year : bandana & anything glow in the dark!
