Over the past 48 hours I’ve had a single track repeating over and over inside my busy little brain. For reasons unknown to me, Virginia based Dutchman: Martyn‘s remix of Tiga‘s ‘Gentle Giant’ has flown under the radar, so I’m gonna give you dirty dancers the low down. 2010′s spelt a rise in lyric-less vocal patterns in electronic music; that’s particularly prominent in this track, fusing together with orchestral synths and UK Garage beats to create an anthem that’s as dark and suspenseful, as it is mellow and refreshing.

It’s going to be a long HARD Summer this year if Gary Richards and Co.’s new lineup trailer is any indication of the debauchery that will ensue come August 2 & 3. With Jack U (Skrillex + Diplo) as the main characters, the scene is set as the super duo set out to find their “schtick” with the help of Grandma Skrillex. It’s soon discovered that anything on top of your head goes as a motley crew of DJ’s assemble, including Richards, Justin Martin, and Kill The Noise. Everything turns sour, though, as Dillon Francis realizes his pals Diplo and Skrillex have stolen his Strawberry concept and only A-Trak can console… Peep the full video below and take a gander at a lineup that just about scratches any possible Electronic Music itch you might have.

By now you’ve already seen a ton of “DOs & DON’Ts” articles regarding Coachella. We’re not here to tell you what to do at Coachella. You know how to party hard without going overboard, so what more do you need to know? I mean, we do know of one SUPER STEALTH area with a clean indoor bathroom & easy access bar that isn’t VIP…but we ain’t tellin’ where it is. That one is best to find all on its own.
What we can tell you are things like don’t fret over the Yuma Tent lines. They might be long at times but they go fast. The Yuma Tent is twice as big this year and twice as glorious. Hot Since 82, The Magician, Tiga, Cajmere, Laurent Garnier, Bicep…Yuma Tent delivers all weekend long, so jump in line – it won’t take long. Also, don’t sleep on the Heineken House: Chela, Human Life (w/Anabel Englund), Anna Lunoe, Flight Facilities & Classixx will all be performing. Same goes for the Do Lab – there’s plenty to see there like The French Express crew (sans Jonas Rathsman) plus acts like Sweater Beats, Kidnap Kid & many others. And most of all, GO SEE OUTKAST. Don’t listen to what people said about them in Weekend 1. I was there. Sure the energy level could have been a little higher (from the performers AND the crowd). And sure their special guests were a bit lackluster. It didn’t matter. They still sounded great & the set list was amazing. I imagine they’ll make a few minor tweaks and be even better in Weekend 2.
OK, here are FIVE BUZZY TUNES that set the desert on fire last weekend & are sure to get you going Weekend 2. GO FORTH, 2ND WEEKENDERS!
Lorde – Tennis Court (Flume Remix)
The Gobi Tent could barely contain massive crowd for Flume & once this song played, the tent exploded.
AlunaGeorge – This Is How We Do It
Miss Aluna Francis is a superstar in the making. She brought some serious desert swervin’ to the Gobi Tent with this one.
GusGus – Crossfade (Maceo Plex Remix)
Maceo Plex played the biggest, baddest Yuma Tent set of the weekend & this track drew countless oohs & ahhs. Cue the air blasters!
Disclosure x Friend Within – The Mechanism
Excitement levels were high for this track going into Coachella, so who better to drop this bomb on the Yuma Tent than The Magician himself. The bearded man in the tux played a ballsier set than most expected. It was non-stop magic.
Oliver Heldens – Gecko
There was a Gecko loose in the Yuma Tent during The Magician’s set & it went WILD. Just ask our very own BONES.
Sometimes a quick shout out on social media can go a long way. Yesterday our friends over at Harder Blogger Faster Tweeted four simple words: “This is very good”. The Tweet was accompanied by a link to The Beatangers remix of “This My Shit” by Nikitin. And now, here we are posting about it. If you like a song, say something about it. The repost button on SoundCloud, a YouTube link on Facebook or a simple Tweet…these things can go a long way.
The remix package for “This My Shit” is a stellar one with remixes by Kolombo, Sammy W & Alex E and L.O.O.P. The personal stand out for me is The Beatangers remix. It’s a dirty combination of Indie-Electro & G-House, giving the song a Blog House feel harking back to a sound that mid-2000s Tiga perfected & late-2000s Grum ran away with.

Back when I was at college in Virginia I would go to these rad parties in Richmond put on by the Audio Ammo crew. In those days I was just getting into raves and exploring the better side of electronic music and I’d see this kid Cranks DJ around town from time to time. Well fast forward a few years and I’m here in New York and this remix comes through my inbox and lo and behold, it’s Cranks! Last few years must have been good ones, this remix is a high powered house anthem and I’ve been jamming to his remix of Tiga all day! Definitely keep him in view, word on the street say’s he’ll be dropping an EP this summer!
