That’s right; Zombie Nation, Djedjotronic and SCNTST have all remixed their favorite tracks off of Music is Awesome and put together the stellar results for this EP. Each artist delivers their own unique blend of sounds; from experimentally abstract synth play to familiar rolling basslines.

This weekend we were at the legendary Sonar Festival in one of our favorite European cities, Barcelona. Founded 18 years ago, Sonar was the first ever daytime contemporary music festival in a European city and despite its renowned status, it’s avoided slipping into mainstream territory by continuing to showcase fresh talent.
Taking place across three days and two nights, the first thing that struck us was Sonar’s ability to coordinate such a multitude of electronic acts, hosted at two very different settings without overstepping the vibe at each spot. The 12 til 9 daytime event is a super chilled affair taking place at Barcelona’s beautiful cultural centre, just a stones throw from the Ramblas. By contrast, the 10pm til 7am night event was a rager at Fira Gran Via, a convention centre on the outskirts west of the city. While we’d love to cover every highlight from the weekend, there were just too many great moments, so instead we’ll bring you a varied shortlist of what made us tick:
LDN This Friday, Fabric is playing host to yet another monster lineup. BoysNoize Records will be taking over Room 1, with sets from Housemeister, Djedjotronic, Shadow Dancer, and Mr. Alex Ridha himself. Meanwhile, Room 2 will see Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team topping the Kill ‘Em All bill, joined by Filthy Dukes and Jokers of The Scene, to name a few.
Yesterday we caught up with Al from Shadow Dancer to talk about MegaDrives, production, and dancing dirty. For the interview, tunes, and listing info, read on after the jump…
Just in time for a last minute stocking stuffer, Brodinski dropped his highly anticipated ‘Best of Everything’ vol 2 last night. If you aren’t familiar with the series, don’t expect to find big room festival style wompers, rather, Brodi dished out his favorite R&B hits to his friends like Beataucue, Renaissance Man, and Tony Senghore and in return you have a compilation of future bass, funky ass remixes of songs you’d normally not listen to. The best part? FREE, which means you must have all been good boys and girls this year. Happy Holidays.
• Young Money – Bedrock (Djedjotronic Remix)
• Amerie – One Thing (French Fries Remix)
• Cassie – Me & U (Brenmar Remix)

Could Mumbai Science
be coming on any stronger right now? Ladies who spend most of their nights out constantly fending off overly aggressive, creepy dudes … I now feel your pain. First the Belgian duo commandeered Halloween’s biggest sound system, as seemingly every DJ at HARD Haunted Mansion in LA dropped ‘Ancova,’ and now their new release ‘Gold’ off Lektroluv
apparently stole the biggest global event of last weekend too, I Love Techno 2010
. Find out why everyone (Erol Alkan, Boys Noize, Crookers, Sound of Stereo, Djedjotronic and Fake Blood, to name a few) have been banging their tracks out recently.
