#TBT post – just thought it was fitting to put up some Shwayze for the last few days of summer.
And the main reason why this is a #TBT post…
Not to be confused with Viceroy, these guys have really honed their skills to become top class remix artists. Great for blasting while at the gym or at pregames. Granted, a lot of what they make sounds pretty similar, but it works well almost every time.
Looking out the window from my desk, I can’t stop daydreaming about being anywhere except here. This rings especially true during summer. But not today. It’s Friday, it’s sunny in The City, and I’m ready to spend my Saturday on Mr. Pellas’ roof enjoying summer. Enter Viceroy.
This dude’s motto is “Summertime all the time” and his music is transcendent in its ability to put me on a beach with a beer (at least in my mind). I first heard his St. Lucia remix about a year ago, and have not been disappointed since. Some of my favorites are below, but he’s got plenty more, and I encourage you to check them out. Enjoy the weekend,
Some Will Smith? Check. Biggie? Sure, why not?

Sorry T, but I had to save the post – you’re starting to give away too many hints about your sexuality. Learning you are, young padawan…
Someone from Germany checked out the site yesterday. Thought that was cool, so here’s to the German dude –
My roommate told me about a kid from Connecticut named Nate Rathburn, aka. Audien. At age 17, his friends were applying for college while he was sending out demos to producers trying to make it. Pretty ballsy move. Now he’s playing shows in Vegas, LA, and New York. He’s been featured on Tiesto’s “Club Life” and Armin Van Buuren’s “A State of Trance”. Who needs college when you’re among a growing list of teenagers crushing it (see Martin Garrix)?
I am not well versed in EDM, really just started listening to it a couple of months ago. However, my roommate tells me that Audien’s first musical endeavors were rooted in trance, and he has gradually shifted his style to bring a progressive-house feel to his original mixes. He also remixes a Bruno Mars song, seemingly created by an equation as your run-of-the-mill pop song, and makes it interesting.
So none of this was relevant to the German dude. Sorry Hans, but here’s a freebie: Watch any video on YouTube, pause it, and without clicking anything else, type “1980”. A gift from your friends across the pond.

To the few people that actually read (past tense) this thing: I know I haven’t posted anything for over year now – a combination of being too busy being a real person and flat-out laziness… However, since I’m still paying for this site, I might as well pump my money’s-worth into it.
So, to start things off, I’m posting a few remixes of Imagine Dragons tracks (since their actual songs are a little too mellow for my liking). Enjoy.
It’s Time (Plastic People Remix) by Imagine Dragons
Radioactive (dBerrie Remix) by Imagine Dragons
So this guy is pretty much the man… He’s an unsigned hip-hop artist out of Boston, MA who produces his own music. He’s like a young Lupe Fiasco on lyrical steriods. You can get most of his music for free off of his facebook page.

This guy’s a great producer out of NYC just coming on the scene. His The World Is Ours EP, which was released in October, got him a lot of attention with the music blogs and whatnot. Personally, I love his rendition of Ellie Goulding‘s Lights – it puts most other mixes of her remix-raped song to shame. Seriously, type “Ellie Goulding Lights Remix” into either youtube or soundcloud… ridiculous. I hope this guy breaks through at some point to start putting some class with David Guetta in the mainstream production scene.

So, I know it’s been a while – quite a while – since my last post, but I’m going to start keeping this blog up-to-date again. I stumbled upon these guys over a year ago, and they’re the tits.
