Plasmapool Records on a roll in the Beatport charts

12 May


The up-and-coming electro house focused record label has been having a great few months. Their success is greatly attributed to Mord Fustang’s first Beatport release, “The Electric Dream.” Since then, Mord has put out a few more popular singles, the most recent of which, “Lick The Rainbow,” is selling at #3 in all of Beatport.

Plasmapool also has the coveted #1 spot on Beatport’s main chart with Hypster’s “The Uprising.” This song samples the epic orchestral “O Fortuna.” You’ll recognize it as soon as you hear it.

Go pick up these singles on Beatport.

Beatport is making efforts to help raise money for Japan

21 Mar


Today on Monday, March 21st, every single dollar made in sales on the online music retailing powerhouse will go directly to relief in Japan.

This is incredibly generous considering that the website is far and away the most robust retailer for anything EDM.

So, if you were waiting to make a purchase on Beatport, today is the day to do it. All of the money you spend today will be going to a great cause. Below is a link to Beatport.

Tron remix album, R3C0NF1GUR3D, getting closer to release — tracklist included

21 Mar


Everyone loved Daft Punk’s venture into the official composing game with their highly acclaimed score to Disney’s Tron: Legacy in 2010. The album release of this score was even well renown and sold very well even though it was not a standard electro/house release like the duo is famous for.

Well, now all of the songs from that score are being remixed by the likes of The Glitch Mob, The Crystal Method, Kaskade, Avicii, and many more.

Reconfigured is set to release on the same date that the DVD/Blu-Ray of the film is released, April 5th.

Here is the full tracklist:
01. Derezzed (The Glitch Mob remix)
02. Fall (M83 vs. Big Black Delta remix)
03. The Grid/Game Has Changed (The Crystal Method remix)
04. Adagio for Tron (Teddybears remix)
05. The Son of Flynn (Ki:Theory remix)
06. C.L.U. (Paul Oakenfold remix)

New Avicii bootleg remix of an unexpected artist

21 Mar


Last night, Avicii fulfilled his promise of releasing a new song once his facebook page reached its benchmark 100,000 fans.

All I have to say is that you should take a listen… After all, what could be cooler than a bouncy Avicii remix of a household staple by Kings of Leon?
