Ever wanted to hear all your favorite past, present, and future radio hits all in one place? Enter Calvin Harris’ 18 Months LP. This album is essentially mega-hit after mega-hit, separating tracks like “We Found Love,” “Let’s Go,” and “Feel So Close” with interludes like “Green Valley,” “Mansion” and “School.” To make sure things don’t get too pop though, Calvin carefully spreads out his “Iron” collab with Nicky Romero, “Awooga” and the new “Drinking From The Bottle” with Tinie Tempah among the “Sweet Nothing’s” and “I Need Your Love’s” for what turns out to be a great mix of styles.
Between the thoroughly rinsed melodies like “Bounce” and new found bangers like “Thinking About You” there is a lot to take in on 18 Months. At least 10 of the 15 are songs that either have or certainly will be blasting through your radio this Fall/Winter, and while that may throw a few hipsters for a loop, the album is actually quite amazing for what it is. Stream it below or on Calvin’s website, and find 18 Months out on October 29th/30th.
If you guys have read my bio, you’ll know that I’m not only a total badass for creating this amazing blog, but also a proud brother of the Kappa Delta Chapter of ΔΣΦ at Virginia Tech. This week marked our annual philanthropy, Egyptian Expedition, with the goal in mind to raise money for the American Red Cross, and thanks to our guys and hundreds of amazing Greek women, the cash totals are already exceeding $15,000. If that’s not a reason for celebration, I’m not sure what is…
With a little careful consideration and some betches love this-like insight from Ashley (see the top right picture in the cover), I’ve mapped out 20 tracks that are absolutely PRIME time pregame material. You can see the tracklist below, which includes some of the hottest songs out right now (like “Call Me Maybe,” which I admittedly purchased on iTunes last night…#yolo?) along with some stuff that you may not have heard yet but will end up with all your friends wanting to know where you get your music from.
Press play on the button below and stream the whole mix, hit the download link below that if you want to add these songs to your library, and get ready for an epic weekend.

After hooking you up with the radio rip of the track, we now have the full 320 Extended Mix from Calvin Harris. As I’ve said earlier, “Let’s Go” will be the next “We Found Love” from this wildly talented Scottish producer and his mainstream pop counterpart Ne-Yo, so make sure to start bumping this early before it gets overplayed. Also check out Calvin’s very own remix of the song in my previous post.
Already being dubbed the male version of “We Found Love“, “Let’s Go” is yet another incredibly catchy radio ready single from the mind of Calvin Harris. Although the vocals from Ne-Yo are nothing short of incredibly mainstream, this is still wildly appealing for those of you looking for the “next big track” before it becomes wildly overplayed. Also included is the radio rip of Calvin’s very own remix of the track as premiered on BBC. Look out for the original version to start taking over your radio stations and frat parties in the near future, and remember where you heard it first.
Although you’re New Year’s Eve parties may be over, it’s never an inappropriate time for a continuous mix from DJ Rudy. Recapping some of the major hits of 2011 with his old mashups as well as some new exclusive mixes, this is 25 minutes of “height of the night” dancefloor material. You’re probably too hungover for this on a Sunday though, so hold on to it until you’re recharged for next weekend.
“Just press play, and let your ears take you away through the biggest anthems of 2011, mixed and mashed by yours truly. This mix contains re-mastered old mashups plus new ones as well, all wrapped up in a convenient continuous style!!”
