Ever since I heard this song for the first time, this has been on repeat. I’ve been expecting some crazy Jack Ü remixes, but Halogen‘s take of Where Are Ü Now took the funky and massive original and flipped it into a much more upbeat dance track relatively quickly.
Well, we had an awesome February for dance music. It kicked off on February 2nd with the release of You Know, the collaboration between electronic staple Zeds Dead and the fast riser Oliver Heldens. SNBRN (Sunburn) continued his hot streak with some Sunset House and his original Raindrops. Along the way, wonder Madeon teamed up with Passion Pit for a funky dance tune Pay No Mind. Chicago-dance group Autograf remixed ODESZA’s All We Need, who then remixed RAC‘s We Belong. Finally, Jack Ü (Skrillex and Diplo) wrapped up the crazy month with their huge and highly anticipated album – which is sure to be in the conversation at the end of the year as one of the best – that included collaborations with the infamous Justin Bieber and the best performer at the Superbowl halftime show Missy Elliott. So without further ado, here is SNN’s February recap below, starting with the top ten:
- Jack Ü – Where Are Ü Now (ft. Justin Bieber)
- Zeds Dead & Oliver Heldens – You Know
- Jack Ü – Take Ü There (ft. Kiesza) [Missy Elliott Remix]
- SNBRN – Raindrops (ft. Kerli)
- ODESZA – All We Need [Autograph Remix]
- Elephante – Shake The Earth [OLWIK Remix]
- MOWE – Birds Flying High
- The Magician – Sunlight (ft. Years and Years) [Elephante Remix]
- RAC – We Belong (ft. Katie Herzig) [ODESZA Remix]
- Madeon – Pay No Mind (ft. Passion Pit)
Action Bronson‘s next album can’t come any sooner. Mr. Wonderful is coming out March 24th, but in the mean time, turn Baby Blue featuring Chance the Rapper up!
Below is Action’s tease link for the album, which includes everything he’s put out on Soundcloud prior to the later release.
This guy had a crazy weekend. Diplo celebrated the release of his Jack U album with Skrillex by throwing a 24-hour set during the weekend, streamable for fans online. Within a day of the conclusion of the release party, he then released another banger as a part of Major Lazer with producer DJ Snake called Lean On, featuring Mø. It’s hard not to post anything this guy does, the versatility of is music and his knack for pushing the boundaries of modern dance music is incredible. Who knows what’s next for Diplo, Jack U, Major Lazer… but whatever you want to call him, he’s on fire.
Alright friends, the day is finally here. Things have seemed somewhat mellow over the past few weeks but today makes up for the brief absense. Skrillex and Diplo have been ripping up the electronic dance music scene and fortunately we are finally able to celebrate with an album titled Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack U. If you want a little taste of the poster-boys of electronic dance music, look no further than this album, which can be found on Soundcloud and iTunes. Not going to go into the major details of the album so just go ahead and listen to it already!
A little different from the normal stuff, here’s a very happy, dance-friendly track from KYKO called Animals. Love the melody, vocals and varied use of the rhythm section (the drums). The ladies will love dis so thank me lata!
Happy Sunday. Louis The Child brings the funk into SoySauce‘s track “Broken Record”.
