#songoftheday = GlideSonic – “Desire (just love me)” EDM remix
Well, kids, the dance-pop world has two new mascots to worship. One of the guys -- assuming they're guys -- wears a fox mask and the other one wears a human mask except that it looks like he's a human from Gorrilaz. ...
#songoftheday = DIE ANTWOORD: “BANANA BRAIN” + TOUR DATES
On their last few albums, Die Antwoord were a very gimmicky, almost comedic duo. As Ninja describes their new video for the single "Banana Brain, "A young girl sneaks out to a party with an unusual thug rap-raver boy and has the worst / best night...

#songoftheday / VIDEO = KTX – “You Alone” ft. Juliet Gough
It's hard to imagine that what you're hearing above started off as a piece of classical music on a piano, eh? We know stranger things have happened, but we can't recall the last time when a #songoftheday had such an odd background story. That's not why...
#songoftheday = DANNY L HARLE: “BROKEN FLOWERS”
There are so many DJs and producers out there making their own music these days... And, let's face it, most of them suck. They lay down some punchy EDM beats, find a woman with a pretty voice to sing over them, and that's it. ...
#songoftheday / VIDEO: Diplo & Sleepy Tom – “Be Right There”
Diplo doesn't need help from anyone else to create a mammoth EDM banger, but he's collaborated with Sleepy Tom here anyway and you can thank your lucky stars that he did because the result is a truly invigorating beast of a song. It also features gorgeous vocals,...
REVIEW: SOPHIE: PRODUCT
“I can make you feel better, if you want to,” a female chirps on “Bipp” by SOPHIE, the name used by London-based producer Samuel Long. Or perhaps it’s actually Samuel singing and he just raises the pitch on the vocals so that they sound female? In any case, SOPHIE has become quite the sensation...Read more
#songoftheday / REVIEW: Ckrono & Slesh: “SLANG”
If you're getting bored with EDM, well, I really couldn't blame you. In fact, I am, too. But today we have a two song EP from Ckrono & Slesh, a duo hailing from Florence, Italy, and it's a stimulating blend of kudoro (something I'd never heard...
LYRIC VIDEO: Katharine McPhee – “Stranger Than Fiction”
Now, here's something we never expected to hear -- a Katharine McPhee EDM song. It's pretty good, too. Our only small complaint is that this sounds more like a remix than an actual song....

#songoftheday / NEWS / REVIEW: METALLICA: “LORDS OF SUMMER” (THE GLITCH MOB REMIX)
“Lords of summer shall return,” proclaims Metallica’s James Hetfield right at the beginning of The Glitch Mob’s remix of Metallica’s new song “Lords of Summer,” which will be X Games Austin’s official anthem this year.

#songoftheday / REVIEW: Jolin Tsai – “I’m Not Yours” Feat. NAMIE AMURO
This is what happens when the reigning queen of Chinese pop meets the reigning queen of Japanese pop... One fabulous, punchy as hell, kick ass pop song, primed for the dance floor. If you really despise EDM then this one might turn you off, but we're...
REVIEW SPOTLIGHT: DAVID GUETTA: LISTEN
If there’s one thing you could accuse David Guetta of, it’s being formulaic. He has a design in front of him and he rarely colors outside of it. It’s like he has a dance pop algorithm he uses to write all of his songs. To that end, you could say that his music...Read more
