BeatauCue Kid Cudi Rework

Posted in Beataucue, Crookers, Culture Beat, Kid Cudi on 04 mars 2010 by surikaten

A quick mid-day post for you all. BeatauCue is always sure to give us some great tracks. This re-work of Kid Cudi/Crookers track Day n’ Nite is no exception. And is it just me or isn’t that a sample of eurodance classic Mr. Vain by Culture Beat in there? To shed some light on this we go some twenty years back to the 90’s in this post and bring you that song as well. Well, anyway this is an epic re-work from BeatauCue! Eat your lunch, then dance to this one!

The Helsinki post

Posted in Dada Life, David Guetta, Discobelle Records, Helsinki, Helsinki 78-82, Kid Cudi, MVSEVM on 17 januari 2010 by surikaten

Suddenly all these references to Helsinki, the Finnish capital, came up. Couldn’t really be a coincidence right? So we are doing a Helsinki post with three tracks with references to Helsinki.

First up is the debut release from Discobelle Records, MVSEVM. MVSEVM is a Finnish trio who returned with ”a dose of cheesy keys & firm beats to make everything fresh again” after retirering from their original track as techno producers.
Their first single on Discobelle Records is called French Jeans. It’s remixed on the EP by among others Style of Eye, Edu K and Dada Life. In this post we include the promotion track which is the Dada Life remix. And it’s bangin’!
Buy the entire release on Beatport.

MVSEVM – French Jeans (Dada Life Remix)

Second team up is a duo from Uusimaa, which is the region in Finland in which Helsinki is a sub-region (TAjT also give you geography lessons for free). Conveniently enough the duo from Uusimaa is called Helsinki 78-82. Helsinki 78 – 82 produces really nice disco electro tunes with a great vibe. Today we post So Lifelike, a beatiful track with great vocals by Villa Nah.

Helsinki 78-82 – So Lifelike

And as something of a bonus we were sent a track from Helsinki based dj’s Heavyweights. To quote them: ”We loved the track David Guetta ft Kid Cudi – Memories you posted! We decided to remix it to make it more playable for the clubs and we used a classic FatBoySlim sample to spice things up.” We’d say it is more of a mash up but hey that won’t stop us from posting it.

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.

David vs Guetta

Posted in Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Estelle, Kid Cudi with tags , , , , , on 14 december 2009 by surikaten

TAjT ger sig på en lite mer mainstream måndag än vanligt. Veteranen David Guetta dominerar på radiostationerna och bloggarna runt om i världen. Ingen som lyssnat på radio på senaste tiden kan väl ha missat hans Sexy Bitch. Just det spåret har inte vi på TAjT fastnat för alls faktiskt. Tyvärr känns det lite som att spåret har tagit fokus från mycket annat fantastiskt material som kommer från David Guetta. Så vi vill denna måndagskväll bjuda på ett par andra spår.

Första spåret är ett samarbete med en annan stjärna på blogghimlen just nu, Kid Cudi. Gemensamma spåret Memories flirtar med Kid Cudis r n’ b-publik och samtidigt med klubbkidsen genom glada housefyllda melodier.

Andra spåret är ett samarbete med Estelle (som vi först uppmärksammade i samarbetet med Danger på spåret American Boy). Här remixad till en ännu högre nivå av grymma Calvin Harris. Spåret är en housedänga som kommer att fungera på många dansgolv i vinter. Nog skrivet, lyssna själva istället och gör er egen bedömning.
