La Belle et Le Bad Boy

If you are a SATC fan you might recognize this song from the series finale way back in 2004. I heard it again on True Blood the other night (Season 3 Episode 6) and remembered how much I liked it.

"La Belle et Le Bad Boy" - MC Solaar
"small ensembles in big ensembles assemble..."

All Summer

So I didn't realize when I was moving back up to the Bay Area from LA that I would be saying goodbye to summer in the middle of July. Mark Twain had it right when he said:
"The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."
That being said, I drove up to Santa Rosa from the city today so that I could get some sun (it's in the mid-80s here right now). When I return to San Francisco on Friday it will be with my Uggs and pea coat. Even if it feels like the dead of winter in SF, I'm still enjoying listening to this song by Best Coast, Kid Cudi and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend:

Artist Spotlight: 2AM Club

I don't even remember how I first came across 2AM Club a few years ago, but I instantly was hooked on their sound. They are a little bit pop, indie, hip hop & electro--all my favs. I have impatiently been waiting for them to release their debut album after being signed with RCA and the good news came today that it will be out September 14th! Until then I will have to be content with watching YouTube videos of their music or streaming from MySpace. You should definitely check them out now, guaranteed they'll be all over the radio and MTV--not that MTV even plays music anymore--soon enough.

Click for free download of "Worry About You" - 2AM Club
"you wish i would've treated you like you treated me..."

"Faster Babe"
"wanna make them gasp..."

"Only For Me"
"i could find a million girls, i want one..."

"Same Night Sky"
"i miss the days and the folks that i shared them with..."

"Flashing Room"
"you make me so hot, i love you on fire, that’s just what this song’s about..."

Do You Like Face?

It's almost been a year since I first heard this song still every time "I'll Get You (Feat. Jeppe)" by Classixx comes on my iPod shuffle I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. What I love most is that after listening to the song a million times, still everyone one of my friends, including myself, sang the lyrics wrong for months--it's"do you like bass?" not "do you like face?"

I saw Classixx spin at V Lounge in Santa Monica for my birthday this past February and they were awesome. Of course when they ended their set with this song everyone went crazy. Strange music video for it though...

I don't know about you, but I love covers. Some hate them saying, "why fix what isn't broken," but I think that a good cover lets you fall in love with a song all over again. Recently I came across some interesting ones, but I'll let you form your own opinions of them.

"Digital Love (Daft Punk cover)" - Alphabeat

Electric Daisy Carnival 2010

My second attendance of Electric Daisy Carnival in Los Angeles was just as epic as my first time last year. I mean how can you go wrong with house music, carnival rides, and neon lights??? You can't.

I do have to say that some of the big names I went to see didn't really bring it as much as I had hoped--Deadmau5 & Benny Benassi--however, I was really impressed by both Fedde Le Grand and Swedish House Mafia.

Of those who preformed at EDC this year, here are some of their songs you should check out:

"Sofi Needs a Ladder"
"Moar Ghosts N Whatever"
"Some Chords"
"Ghosts 'n' Stuff (Ft. Rob Swire)"

"Dynasty (Dada Life Remix)"
"Move for Me" - Kaskade & Deadmau5
"4 AM (Adam K & Soha Mix)"
"Angel on My Shoulder"

Benny Benassi:
"The Reward is Some Satisfying Chords (STEEP Bootleg)" - Deadmau5 vs. Benny Benassi
"Electro Sixteen"
"I Love My Sex"

"Bounce (feat. N.O.R.E. and Isis)"
"Heartbreaker (feat. John Legend)"
"Monster Hospital (MSTRKRFT Remix)" - Metric
"California Gurls (Mstrkrft Remix)" - Katy Perry Ft. Snoop Dogg

Swedish House Mafia:

Fedde Le Grand:
"Put Your Hands Up for Detroit"
"Walking On An Amplifier (Goodwill Bootleg)" - Fedde Le Grand vs. Empire of the Sun
"Let Me Think About It (Radio Edit)" - Ida Corr and Fedde Le Grand

Laidback Luke:
"Dirty Talk (Laidback Luke Remix)" - Wynter Gordon

"2nite (ft. Sporty-O)"

Armand Van Helden
"Ski Hard (CLKCLKBNG Remix)"

And if you missed EDC or simply want to relive it, damaBeats has full live recordings that you can listen to and/or download with lists of all the tracks played in each set by Armin van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Sasha, Kaskade, Laidback Luke, Swedish House Mafia, and Fedde Le Grand.
