PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Today is the last day for you to get your taxes done unless you file for an extension. I seriously doubt that corporate America reads this blog so if you’re just here for the music ignore my PSA.
Now for some tasty tracks to get you groovin on your Tuesday evening. I’m gonna try to include a little bit of everything in this post, not just my recent typical deep house/super hipster music taste that most no one really rages to unless you live in Europe or some other country that is light years ahead of American music trends.

To begin we have Leo Perez with his funkadelic masterpiece, Colors. Prepare for some serious funkage. Leo manages to sample the Nu Shooz’s classic track “I Can’t Wait” (Watch it here) into a groovy deep house rendition. Now enough of my rambling on about this tracks funkadelic vibes just give it a listen and feel the grooves for yourself.
Now, to move to something a little more aggressive. This is a track by Scuba titled “The Hope”. The vocals are seductive and in your face. However, the provocative lyrics build up to an in your face kicker of a bass line. Then top off the track with some delicious melodies layered over the industrial beat and you have yourself one hell of an epic track. Enjoy my friends! <3
The first time I ever attended a rave was Electric Daisy Carnival 2008. It was one of the most life changing moments, but most importantly it was the first time I saw Moby perform live. I had been a gigantic Moby fan prior to attending EDC, but after witnessing him dj, I realized that I had just had a religious experience. 4 years later, his music still gets to me like no other musician can. The following track contains a sample of Moby’s Natural Blues (Watch It Here). The original song never fails to give me goosebumps and this remix does a pretty good at accomplishing the same task. Drop this in your set and if you have Moby fans in the audience, they will go bananas.
Now, on to something more uplifting and fun. Here we have Disco Stu & J Monkman sampling Prince’s Kiss into a deep house masterpiece. I’ve been dropping this song in my own DJ sessions and it mixes well with a lot of the other soulful deep house songs that are currently being released. It’s a fun track so just download this choon and get down.
I now present to you all Maelstrom, a producer I just recently discovered during my Beatport digging sessions. His most recent release on Sound Pellegrino Records (A Label I highly recommend anyone to follow) is his bumpin’ track “Pool Chicks”. This is a fun track that would be perfect for some A cappela layering. The bassline is just straight up in your face; if mixed properly this track would be pure fire on the dance floor. I leave this challenge to all you aspiring and/or established DJs reading this blog.
