Deadmau5 & Eric Prydz at Cream Ibiza

Posted in Deadmau5, Eric Prydz on 16 mars 2010 by surikaten


Last week Cream Ibiza announed their line up for the summer of 2010 at award winning Amnesia. The summer will be hotter than hot with a seven week recidency by none other than Deadmau5 and six parties with Sweden’s number one house guru Eric Prydz. August 12th and September 2nd is the dates to keep in mind if you want them both at the same night. What track could be better on this occasion than the tribute cover on Eric Prydz Pjanoo by Deadmau5?

Moguai

Posted in Deadmau5, mau5trap, Moguai on 06 mars 2010 by surikaten

A week ago Deadmau5 presented his supporting acts for his UK Tour in May (which we will attend in London!). It wasn’t much of surprise that one of them was German producer Moguai. Since his signing to Deadmau5 own lable Mau5trap and recent news that he will be the first artist besides the boss himself to release a full lenght album on the lable we weren’t expecting anything else. Less than a week ago Moguai gave us the first glimps of what we can expect from the album, called We Are Lyve, with the Nyce/Blau EP. After listening to Nyce and Blau you’ll have no trouble imagening why Deadmau5 wanted Moguai on his label. It’s a freakin’ awsome EP! Especially Blau just blows us away.

Old yet new by Deadmau5

Posted in Chris Lake, Deadmau5, Michael Woods on 08 februari 2010 by surikaten

Deadmau5 seems to be unable to keep his name of the Beatport charts. Right now it’s the old yet new track I said that’s climbing the charts. I said was actually made in 2007 and if we are to belive Deadmau5 himself, and we probably shoud, it was made ”in a basement apartment, with a little phatty, a PC and a Chris Lake”.

The track was then re-done into Arguru which was first released on Songbird in August 2007. Now the track has been re-done once again and the original track has been cleaned up and released on Deadmau5 own label Mau5trap. Today we bring you the remix from UK producer Michael Woods on the track. And as a bonus, Arguru.

HAJEN: Best of 2009

Posted in A-trak, Amanda Blank, Annie, Armand Van Helden, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Duck Sauce, Fred Falke, Jesper Dahlbäck, Kid Cudi, Kris Menace, Name The Pet, Rubix, Shazam, What we danced to 2009 on 31 december 2009 by hajen


So, it’s time for our very last post this year. We’re closing the loop with the fourth and last Best of 2009 list. This is my, Hajen’s, best tracks of 2009. Happy New Year dear readers!

10. Rubix – Baiser Sur La Disco (Rubix Refix)

Rubix – disco at its best! I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. It’s a must dance track with a promise of a never ending night at the dance floor. But for God’s sake don’t leave this track for the club nights – use it whenever you need to cheer someone up – at the bus, in school, at work, in supermarket queues. Disco is for living.

9. Duck Sauce – aNYway

This Duck Sauce might not have many similarities with this sweet and sour thing you eat with china food. The mix of A-trak – Armand Van Helden and house/funky disco makes me fall head over heels. And as icing on the cake they have made a marvelous video for aNYway. I say no more.

8. Deadmau5 – Strobe

This track by always genius Deadmau5 doesn’t need an explanation. Listen – and marvel.

7. Amanda Blank – Make It Take It

Amanda Blanks I love you might be one of my most listened albums of 2009. The thousand layers of her deep and smooth voice on simple, but oh so brilliant, bass loop. A perfect clash between electro and hip hop.

6. Fred Falke – Back To Stay

You that read TAjT on a regular basis clearly now what position Fred Falke has got in our, and especially mine. electrified heart. Fred Falke is like the good parts of Midas. Golden like a car ride in winter scenarys, a sunny day by the sea or a smoky, sweaty, slow but energic dance floor at 5 am. Back to stay is the good parts of life.

5. Name The Pet – Get On The Bus

This is one of my favourite dansgolsvältare (translation: tune that overturnes the dancefloor) from this year. I can’t explain why –  my words seems unimportant in the company of Get on the bus. Turn up the volume – the intro says it all.

4. Shazam – Hello Cat

A smooth track that reminds me of Jamiroquai in its best days. Very nice tune!

3. Annie – Don’t Stop

After escaping her last record label and getting parts of her album leaked out, one of the most longed for albums finally came. Annie takes electro pop to a new level with Don’t stop. The title track is a catchy and karaoke friendly one – in a fresh way.

2. Jesper Dahlbäck – Super Connector

Last winter I moved to a collective in Solna, north of Stockholm. This track accompanied me on my way to work all spring.

1. Kris Menace feat. Fred Falke – Electricity

I agree with Surikaten on this. It’s indeed hard to choose one track from Kris Menace debut album Idiosyncrasies. But, Electricity it is. Mostly because it manages to remain easy even though it has a massive fateful image. It’s magic!

BONUS: David Guetta feat. KiD CuDi – Memories

A track that both I and Surikaten really like is this track. A genious collab between Guetta and Kid Cudi, between house and r n’ b. A totally genious floor filler that at least we are going to welcome the new year with tonight.

SURIKATEN: Best of 2009

Posted in Annie, Deadmau5, Duck Sauce, Ellen Allien, Fred Falke, Grum, Jesper Dahlbäck, Justin Faust, Kris Menace, Rory Phillips, Steve Angello, TAjT, What we danced to 2009 on 30 december 2009 by surikaten


The third day of TAjTs year best-lists and we’ve reached the best original mixes of 2009. It’s been a great year and here are my,
Surikatens, best tracks from it. Listen to them, dance to them and buy them. And of course, feature them in your playlist for the new year!

10. Annie – I Don’t Like Your Band

A dear friend tipped me of on Norweigan electro-pop artist Annie and her album Don’t Stop (released on 19 October in Europe). Since then the album has been played a lot of times. Especially this song, I Don’t Like Your Band, with its catchy melody and lyrics has stuck it self on my mind.

9. Justin Faust – Capri Spinoff

With his EP Revenge Justin Faust really kicked this year off. Faust has been recording music on a variety of labels since 1992 but it’s been with Revenge and a couple of great remixes (among them the remix on Heads We Dance which was featured on my Best Of Remixes-list) he has proven himself for real. Capri Spinoff has got all of Justin Fausts earmarks disco, synth and house blended nicely togheter.

8. Rory Phillips – Solar Breakfast

With this track British producer Rory Phillips showed that he’s more than a great remix artist (with remixes on Chromeo, The XX and Gossip) and brilliant party organizer. Solar Breakfast is a great nu disco track that builds up and won’t let go of you. The only thing you can do is dance. Keep an eye on this guy, that’s my advice.

7. Grum – Hearbeats

Scotlands finest, Grum has had a brilliant year. With releases of tracks Runaway and Hearbeats he’s gained a lot of well earned success. On music blogs all over the world bloggers have singed his prayer. Heartbeats really got my heart beating the first time I heard it and it won’t stop. This is an amazing track, no doubt about it.

6. Ellen Allien – Lover

The first techno track on this list and one might not be surprised that it’s a track from totally extraordinary German producer Ellen Allien. Released in the end of August on legendary Bpitch Control this track set a standard for the autumn. It’s beautiful and on the same time dark and scary.

5. Kris Menace (feat. Fred Falke) – Fairlight Pt. 1 and Pt. 2

To chose one track from Kris Menace 26 tracks on critic loved debut album Idiosyncrasies is extremely hard. Fairlight, featuring producer friend Fred Falke, was initially released in 2006. The follow-up Fairlight Pt. 1 and Pt. 2 is a true house killer. You have to love it, dance to it, ride a bike to it, have a drink in a park to it…

4. Jesper Dahlbäck – Super Connector

I almost forgot about this song when Hajen (my colleague at TAjT) reminded me. This track was easily one of the most important tracks of the late winter and early spring of 2009. It held me company on long train rides and made me happy every time I heard it. And who can blame me? From the first tune this track is sheer happiness. The intro tickles your good mood and then you’re stuck.

3. Steve Angello – Tivoli

Are we happy that Steve Angello made a promise on New Years Eve one year ago to stop partying and start producing? Yes we are! His album The Year Book is a fantastic house journey. Being one third of the Swedish House Mafia Steve Angello is one of the superstars on the club scene. Here he shows why. Tivoli is truly fantastic dance track that we for sure will hear on clubs all over the world for quite a while.

2. Duck Sauce – aNYway

How can a collab between Armand Van Helden and A-Trak possibly be anything else than magical? Well it can’t! This is magic, dancefloor magic. aNyway brings disco back to life, blends it with perfect house beats and all the talent of two briliant artists. If you don’t dance to this one, well then you can’t feel very good. My advice is to listen to it again, and again, and again. Eventually you will dance. I promise you.

1. Deadmau5 – Strobe

I don’t know how to describe this track. It’s just a perfect, magic, beautiful track. Deadmau5 has a unique ability to produce tracks that could be described with these words. Strobe is a track that you just don’t want end. The original mix is ten minutes long and has it all. If you’re a more restless soul you could go for the club edit but then you miss out on a four minute long intro-euphoria. If you need a soundtrack to your life for a while, this is it!
