I love this chill, old-school feeling disco version of Katy Perry’s The One That Got Away by Australian DJ Plastic Plates. The happy beat contrasts Perry’s melancholy voice and sad lyrics.
in another life, I would make you stay/
so I don’t have to say you were the one that got away.

Today it is Thursday, then Friday comes afterwards. (oh God did I just quote Rebecca Black?) I don’t know about you but I’m ready for the weekend. Here’s a 5-song mini mix with funky, housey club tunes to pump you up for tomorrow, and get you through the end of the week.
We don’t sleep when the sun goes down/ We don’t waste no precious time.

Kaskade’s new two-disc CD called Fire and Ice is out tomorrow, October 25th, on iTunes. The first disc, FIRE, is more up-tempo, featuring collaborations with Skylar Grey, Neon Trees, Dada Life & Skrillex. A preview of Lick It featuring Skrillex has been high on the Hype Machine charts all week and has a cool disco feel but I find it a bit repetitive. Disc two, ICE, features a downtempo post-club feel, really showing his versatility. Here’s a preview of his ICE version of Turn It Down, which is pretty awesome because I’m a fan of the original. It’s really cool and calm until it gets to around 2:11 so if you have your volume turned all the way up you are very likely to Turn It Down (unless you want the shit scared out of you). The dubstep part is a random burst of energy considering it goes back to a really slow, calm, sleepy vibe for the rest of the song. I’m looking forward to seeing new sides of him (ahem, Kaskade dubstep? I’m down). I have high expectations so my boy Ryan better not disappoint. Pre-order the 2-disc album for $9.99 on iTunes and support his new sound.

I hate tragic news like this. DJ Medhi, French producer and half of the electronic group Carte Blanche, passed away in an accident involving a roof collapse in Paris last night. He was 34. Rest in Peace Medhi.
