In what is possibly the greatest thing to happen to music ever, Chi Duly has slated PSY’s omnipresent “Gangnam Style” against Technotronic’s timeless classic, “Pump Up The Jam” to form “Pump Up The Gangnam Style.” I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this is in the running for greatest mash of all time, and will be on repeat for all eternity and then some. Thanks to Jess from RemixTheVideo, you can even enjoy “Pump Up The Gangnam Style” in music video form without skipping a beat. Pump up the 강남스타일 below!!!
The fourth and final episode of Kaskade’s Freaks Of Nature Tour video recap series is all about coming home and wrapping up the tour. It highlights footage from Park City, Denver, Indianapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, San Francisco, and the coup de gra, Los Angeles, and sees Kaskade make another prophetic statement about electronic dance music, stating summer 2012 as a time people will look back on and say “ah man, that’s when things really started snappin’, crackin’”. Watch Episode 4, “Homecoming,” below.
I introduced JOSH JAKQ back in May with “See You Later,” a bedroom-destined, Gotye-approved single that was all I needed to continue following the undiscovered Aussie. While I wasn’t quite up to speed with “Pains Me Deep,” his most recent offering, “Funeral,” immediately caught by ear.
Opening with a choral ambiance of hypnotic voices, this soulful jam from the future is exactly what Josh is all about. While everything from the artwork to the lyrics may seem a bit confusing, there’s no doubt the man has some serious vocal talent, maybe the world just isn’t ready? Listen to “Funeral” below and look for the mysterious Joshua’s Demons project coming soon.

Ever since I first heard GRiZ about a year ago, the Michigan producer has been steadily making his way toward electronic god status as an artist. With killer remixes of Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” Kanye West’s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” and Damian Marley’s “Welcome To Jamrock” alongside some sample based originals like “You Got To Change” and “The Future Is Now,” he doesn’t have the largest discography to boast, but quality over quantity is never a bad motto.
“Smash The Funk” continues Grant’s legacy of creating the grooviest electro soul around, taking the saxophone’s sound to new levels of smooth while sticking to the funk smashing mantra of the title. Sneak a listen and free download of the new single, and expect “Smash The Funk” to appear on his forthcoming Mad Liberation album (artwork above), which is due out September 4th.
103 bpm mid-tempo electro soul future funk banger to get up on!!!

How can you not love Dieter Schaaf? On top of his unique hip hop meets indie style, Schaaf’s sound defines that nostalgic feeling of being on the back porch with your childhood friends and cold beer, reminiscing on all the great times you had together. Like the video for “I Am A Child,” “Ophelia” puts those emotions on visual display, portraying the simple but real nature of the song and what Dieter is all about as an artist. Watch below and be sure to check out the recap of his entire I Am A Child album.
