Ali Nadem

Name: Alexander 'Ali' Nadem
Location: Oakville, Canada
Genre: Electro

"I'll do you a favour, and set the scene. It's 1am, you're trashed, you walk out into the alleyway for a cigarette. You feel the walls begin to shake, pump your smoke down and run inside. You find your friends, and that monster track comes on. These are those tracks, the tracks you hear and think, 'holy shit'. The tracks that suit a massive soundsystem and get the whole club dancing like spastics. I introduce to you Ali Nadem. At the age of only 16, the future seems bright for this producer. His tracks are as mainroom as they come, yet will thrash your insides."

This kid is sixteen. When I was sixteen, I was probably still listening to the Spice Girls. SIXTEEN... Holy. Shit.

Electro Champion.
Don't be deterred by the lyrics.

2012 (Ultimate Edition).
Kind of carries on where Electro Champion leaves off.

Electro Gladiator v1.0 (Unleash Hell).

Disto King v2 - ft. Krystalic.
An even more "devastating" version of Disto King. Fast forward to 2.30 - the song really should just start here. So good.

Memories - David Guetta (Ali Nadem Remix).
Even this is pretty decent. Would love to see ZM try play this on the radio, ha. Stick with it, gets better as it goes.

Bits & Pieces

Just a few songs that have been popular with me recently. Bit on the lighter side too.

Pins - Alex Metric.
Considering how long I have been aware of Alex Metric, I'm not exactly sure how I missed this. It has shot to the top of my most frequently played songs, although due to its similarity to Deadly on a Mission that's hardly surprising. If you have managed to miss this too, then its worth making yourself familiar.
Listen: (my version doesn't start till 1.30, I recommend fast forwarding)

What You Know (LightsoverLA Remix) - Two Door Cinema Club.
There are 101 remixes of this song, and I only had the patience to listen to about 2 of them, but this one was a winner with me. A nice smooth beat with a really lovely melody, its just one of those songs that makes you feel happy.

Kaleidoscope (Jeuce Rework) - Logistics.
I came across this song through initially hearing the original. Liked it at first but found it got too much/too fast. This remix is nice because it slows it down a bit. Not usually a fan of such glitchy music, but find this song pretty enjoyable.

Midnight Walk - Barretso.
Reminded me of Redial's 'Forever'.

And lastly,

I Need Air - Magnetic Man.
Have included this because of the video that goes with it. Definitely worth a watch; simultaneously makes you want to be there and makes you laugh, because some of the people are in such a (recognisable) state. That being said, its a mean song as well.

Shaved Monkeys

Name: Shaved Monkeys

Location: Wingene, Belgium

Genre: Electro, Thrash

'Three monsters among humans - half human, half animals - Shaved Monkeys, have been locked up in a cage with nothing more then computers, beer and a huge pair of hair clippers to shave out this new primal jam!
Addicted to electronic music they are expected to be dropping dirty bombs all over the dancefloor.
This is just the beginning as they are just warming up and showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon! These monsters are known for their charismatic personality and their explosive sets. They will blow you away with their trashy productions and filthy remixes so you'd better run or you might get shaved!'
Haha well if you can get over that and the semi-frequent annoying sound effects these guys have a massive sound. They've only released one track and a few remixes but definetly one to look out for in the future.
Get Rough
Drop definetly caught me off guard, bear with it for about a 1:20

Name: Skrillex
Location: Los Angeles, California
Genre: Electro

The urban dictionary defines Skrillex "to sream or to screech. to bring forth music," now I don't know if that was derived from Skrillex himself or not but I reckon that definition sits well with his music. Sonny Moore AKA Skrillex has been in various street punk and hardcore bands, most notably FFTL, where vocal problems forced him to pursue a solo career. He's done some remixes of some high profile songs like Lady Gaga's "Bad romance" and "Alejandro", Black Eyed Peas "Rock that Body" but his own remix of the title track for his recent EP "My Name Is Skrillex" is killer. Before the self promoting vocals really start to piss you off the drop kicks in.

Skrillex - My Name Is Skrillex (Skrillex Remix)

Skrillex - Fucking Die (from his EP)

You can download his EP "My Name Is Skrillex" for free on mediafire,
posted by Sonny himself and definitly worth a download.

Plus hes posted a video teaser on his blog:

Name: Cryptonites

Location: Switzerland

Genre: Electro

“Even after days of investigation, i have not been able to find out more about them besides that they’re coming from switzerland and are obviously having a problem with superheroes. but what i can tell from the tracks i have got ahold of is that they have definitely found the perfect formula to conduct banging tunes. digitalism and teenage bad girl are references that are coming to my mind, but just listen for yourself…”
