Known for her distinct smooth tone, UK pop sensation Ellie Goulding broke through mainstream with her success of the multi-platinum song Lights. She’s also known for doing covers, whether on BBC Radio or other platforms such on Soundcloud. She previously released a cover of the Weeknd song High For This with Noah Breakfast, previously known as Xaphoon Jones of Chiddy Bang. Recently, she secretly uploaded a cover of the Hozier song Take Me To Church that will reconfirm your love for Ellie’s voice.
After trying to find a song worthy of posting, I finally stumbled upon the CDQ version of deadmau5’s song “Professional Griefers” on mau5trap’s Soundcloud page. Although the beginning is DJ tagged, the rest of the stream is the actual song. Deadmau5, along with My Chemical Romance’s front man Gerard Way, creates a melodic song that captures Zimmerman’s signature sound. Look out for deadmau5’s new album >album title goes here dropping on Sept. 25th. Stream and link to iTunes download below (get the iTunes version of Professional Griefers automatically when you pre-order the album)
After posting my album Electro Revival on a forum called GYBO, someone named DJ Nicky commented on my post. I decided to check him out because he gave me positive feedback on my songs and followed me on Soundcloud. One track that stood out to me is the pairing of Linkin Park’s hit single “Burn it Down” and Sander van Doorn’s melodic track “Chasin'”. If you followed the NBA playoffs, you probably got tired of hearing of Linkin Park’s song all the time. However, DJ Nicky brings this song in a new light of electronic dance music. Known for progressive house, Sander van Doorn’s anthem compliments the vocals of Chester (Linkin Park’s lead singer). Check out DJ Nicky’s mashup on Soundcloud below.
After playing NBA 2K12 on the PS3 for a few months, the anticipation for NBA 2K13 is heightened with the newly released playlist for its soundtrack. Teaming up with 2K Sports, Jay-Z became the executive producer of the growing basketball game franchise. The playlist includes music from Kanye West, Nas, Diddy, Santigold, and many other artists including the man Jay-Z himself. Below, you will find an official Spotify stream from 2K13. Hopefully, you will be in an empire state of music after listening to this stream. As I did, pre-order the game now – Out in stores October 2, 2012.
