Life Without EDM Isn’t Life at All

Before I start my post I would like to point out the utter disappointment followed by sheer excitement that went down last night. So, as some of you may know, Porter Robinson was booked to play at The Junkyard in Nashua, NH last night (same club I played at 2 weeks ago). Unfortunately, his flight from Detroit was cancelled so he couldn’t show…shitty. However, because I bought my ticket ahead of time, I got in to the club for free and will get to see Porter for free when he plays in a few weeks at the same club. So pumped for that shit, you have no idea (I’ll keep you guys updated on the date for when he’s comin up).

So, now that my little story is over, it’s time to jump into this weeks tunes to rage to. I’m very excited about this post due to the epicness of the music that was released this week as well as the tunes I recently discovered hiding in my iTunes.  First off, since I’m so angry I couldn’t make the Excision concert in Worcester tonight, here’s some of his tunes, old and new, that will definitely help me get out some anger.

Excision – X Rated (feat. Messinian)

Excision & Downlink – The Underground

Excision & Downlink – Headbanga

Next up I have some good vibes coming at you from the beautiful world of House Music. In case you live under a rock, this past week was the Winter Music Conference (Ultra Music Festival, IDMAs, basically pure dance rage oozing all over Miami) and many artists released some new tunes that are sure to rock your world and leave you wanting more. Grab these up before they are no longer considered new.

Martin Solveig – The Night Out (Madeon Remix) [full version]

Porter Robinson – Language [new and certifiably amazing]

Skrillex – Ruffneck VIP

While Deadmau5 continued to advocate the boycotting of Ultra, he teamed up with some talented artists (the likes of Feed Me and Kill The Noise) to produce two life-altering tracks, though some people don’t know how to appreciate them.

mau5hax – Fractals

mau5hax – Titty Sprinkles

Lastly, I got some chunes both old and new that I just cannot seem to stop listening to. They’re catchy, they’re funky, and most importantly, they get me ready to rage.

Oasis – Wonderwall (Milo & Otis Remix)

Ivan Gough & Feenixpawl – In My Mind (Axwell Remix)(Special Features Edit)

Here’s a remix from my homie CRNKN, this man is playing with Robotic Pirate Monkey this weekend and has been producing for only 6 months…respect.

Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (CRNKN Bootleg)

Flosstradamus – Total Recall

That’s it for this post my people; remember, an hour of rage everyday keeps the doctor away. Turn the speakers up, let the liquor flow, close your eyes, and let the music do the rest. Made love for y’all.

Random and Awesome #1

Hello folks, my name is Mike and I’ve been tasked with throwing music up onto this blog every so often. Since this is my first post, here’s a little bit about me. I’m Canadian, attend UBC in Vancouver, and like to ski. According to Lush I’m a “shredder”.

Anyways, I’m just going to post music that I love at the time, no guarantees about what kind it’ll be, but I hope you guys will love it too.

p.s. If it’s a youtube video or something where you can’t download it, sorry, but I’m guessing that you guys are proficient enough with the internet to find a copy anyways.

Here we go.

The first song is Freeway by Kurt Vile. It’s chill, it’s summery, it’s exactly what I need for this time of year. Enjoy the cartoon in the video too.

Now for a new song by Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zero’s, one of my all time favourite bands, “Man on Fire”. It’s part of their new album, Here, coming out May 29th, needless to say I’m stoked.

Next is Dillon Francis’ new’ish mix of Zedd’s Stars Come Out. It’s a banger and Dillon’s new style is really starting to make waves in the EDM world

Last song of the day, it’s the Dave Edwards Remix of Dreams by Fleetwood Mac. This track is more old-school, it’s chill but still has enough kick to get you out of bed.

Here’s a funny video I thought you guys would get a laugh out of too… Till next time.

Wack Miller? Nahh MACKLEMORE

To be quite frank, this week has been a shitty week for hip-hop. To be even more honest, the best thing that came out this week was Bieber’s new CD…. PHAAAAA just kidding. But on a serious note, although nothing worthwhile came out, I figured I’d still post something to keep you listening. With that being said, “The Town” by Macklemore is an old one, but regardless, it’s great. If I could pick one white rapper to represent the Hip-Hop game, Macklemore would definitely be up there among my top picks. He doesn’t rap about stupid shit, each song has it’s own meaning and tells a different story. It’s tough for me to pick any one song by this guy to represent him, so I suggest you all go out and look him up; that is, if you haven’t heard of him. Enjoy.

Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad

Hey guys.  I hope everyone’s week is going well.  I’m still pretty pumped over how smoothly my first show went this past Friday.  Thanks again to Supreme Skai, Fire of Creation, Rack ‘Em, Let’s Go! and Dubbest for playing, and a big thanks to anyone that came by to check it out!!  Hopefully I will be able to put on more awesome shows here at UNH in the future!!

Today’s post centers around a band that is blowing up lately- Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad.  Their new album “In These Times” drops on April 10th and the boys have graciously uploaded a FREE 17-song sampler titled “Music is More Important Volume 1″, which features songs from their past albums, some live stuff, songs from the new album and even a few previously unreleased tunes!  Here’s the link The Panda folks are currently busy on tour throughout the Northeast and Great Lakes Region, as well as playing a Worldwide Stageit Online Acoustic show on April 10th for their new CD’s release party!  Be sure to check them out while they are still playing smaller shows for very cheap prices, because I predict these guys will blow up very soon.

Below I have uploaded a few songs from the free sampler I mentioned in the post.  Enjoy and spread the music!!

Download:Change You – In These Times

Download:Humboldt County Gold (acoustic) -

Download:Kids In The Square – Country

Have a good rest of the week everybody.  See you next Wednesday.  Peace!

A Pu Pu Platter of Party Playables

What’s up bombers? I’m still trying to add some artistic flavor to my titles, so just accept the alliteration as it is. Hop you all enjoyed the absolutely insane weather last week, I happened to overdose on frisbee and grass stains myself. This past week has actually been pretty good to me [musically] in terms of diversity. I found some real good oldies from a few artists, and have been gathering new stuff from others. This post is gonna be pretty big, so brace yourself.

I was gonna post the new Alvin Risk remix of “We Are Young”, by Fun., but my boy NASS beat me to it. To make up for that, I’m sharing with you A NEW SYNCHRONICE TRACK, YEAHHH MOTHAFUCKAS. As always, these kids are putting out the sickest and slickest tunes for all you ragers. This is actually a remix of a Deadmau5 song, but it’s got their original spin packed tightly into every beat. They try their hand at laying essences of dub over vocals (something that usually doesn’t sound too great, in my opinion) and achieve nothing but success. It’s a ripper for sure and will definitely keep your party going hard. Give this track a download before it reaches the limit (and you have to find it on Hulkshare, ew). Below this track I’m also including the player for the boys’ remix of “Calling” which is probably one of the most renowned anthems of EDM. It’s completely sick, Hulkshare link included for download.

Download  “Calling” here –>Calling (Synchronice Remix)

Alright, after that I’ve got a really cool remix of an old Fleetwood Mac song that should ring some sort of bell for many of you. Dave Edwards is a brand new name for me, but a name that I’m sure not to forget. This song brings a little bit of trance into the prog house genre and is sure to get you on your feet. Check out his Facebook page for more info on him!

Next up is a new project sponsored by Beatport. I haven’t done much research on it so I’ll get back to you on the nitty gritty, but basically it’s a 12 hour production workshop where a bunch of EDM producers came together and worked on some songs. It’s run through mau5trap, deadmau5’s record label. Anyway, they put out some really cool songs that are available for free through Beatport. Just click the “buy” link in the player!

Now I’ve got two pretty weet house tracks that are sure to make you wanna dance. First is a Project 46 remix of Avicii’s “Enough Is Enough.” It’s pretty sweet, the bass rips clean throughout the track, but the original plays through pretty strong which is unusual for a remix. Definitely give these guys a listen and share the sound. The second track is a house remix of (believe it or not) Krewella’s “Strobelights.” Now, Krewella is a duo comprised of the two most beautiful producers this world has seen. I just think they’re so attractive I could cry. Sweekuh gives this track a totally new feel. The bass bumps, the synth plays perfectly into every beat, and the vocals are clear as day. Give it a download!

Here we have something that tickled my fancy. My friend Remy is turning into a pretty badass mix master, and this is his latest work. It’s definitely worthy of a download. I’m not sure how mixcloud works exactly (Soundcloud knockoff fail) so I’ll just post a link to the download and the page.

Download link –>

Lastly I’ve got a track with by a new duo with serious house potential. Hujje, a duo from Denver dropped this song in celebration of their 1000 fans on Facebook. I’ve gotta give these guys credit because they’ve captured an Avicii-esque sound with this original. These guys (Josh and Josh) really know how to produce an upbeat jam that keeps you on your toes. Be sure to keep an eye on these guys because they’re rapidly gaining popularity.

That’s about all I’ve got for you this week. I’m thinking next week I’ll throw up a bunch of my favorite songs just to give you guys a punch in the bass. I’ve also got my Traktor S2, which means it’s time to start mixing and mashing. I’ll start posting some stuff to my Soundcloud once I get going.

Enjoy your week, my friends. Until we meet again,



Super Pump Sundays

This is my first post on Bomb Beats so I’ll probably fuck something up.  Anyways a bit about me.  Canadian, attend UBC, and badass.  Most of the music I’ll post will be house or moombahton.  So lets get started. I won’t write up to much on each song cause I know how annoying it can get.

First up is Nicky Romero’s new track Se7en.  Nicky Romero has a way of creating huge tracks. Banger after banger he finds a way to do it.  His new track incorporates elements of dutch house, trance, and big room bass.

Second we got a Dillon Francis Remix.  It does get repetitive but it is a definite party rager.  Think of it as dubstep on drugs with a side of fries.

Lastly I’m gonna throw up one of my mashups.  It is a moombahton track with a feel of both party and chill.  Perfect Combo for a hungover Sunday  to chill out to.

Remember If you aren’t given’r  you’re receiving and thats never a good place to be.

The Time Has Come

So I definitely dropped the ball these past two saturdays, but I have a more than proper excuse. Two fridays ago I was offered an opening set at a club in Nashua for an EDM dance party called Symmetry. With the gig scheduled for last wednesday I immediately got to work on my set-list, completely forgetting to work on my BombBeats post for the following night. Last saturday was less of set-list of preparation and more of just reliving the moment over and over again as I am still in awe of my first live show. Not only was I invited back to the club for a future gig, but I also made a connection to book a show in Boston over the summer, which will undoubtedly be the most amazing thing to ever happen to me. Having said all this, I have another change to make, this time it’s staying put. From this point on I will no longer go by polAris, but by the name I thought of a week before the show; NASS. Although there wasn’t too big of a crowd for my set, all my friends came out and supported me while I fueled their dance floor rage. For this post I’m gonna hit you with some tunes off my set-list, along with some ones that have been catching my attention in iTunes.

First I wanna include the three songs off my set that I was most amped about. Lately I’ve been getting into the 110 scene. Traditional dubstep is produced at either 70 or 140 bpm, while house and electro stay in the range of 120-130. Very recently however, music at 110 bpm has been gaining popularity and it is blowing my mind. Moombahton kills it every time I hear a new song and 110 is perfect for it, but if you take away the Reggaeton influence, you’re left with a song that can slam any dance floor. Here are some 110 tunes that I just cannot stop listening to.

Nero – Must Be The Feeling (Delta Heavy Remix)

Porter Robinson – Unison (Knife Party Remix) [previously posted]

Kill The Noise – Kill The Noise (Dillon Francis Remix)

fun. – We Are Young (Alvin Risk Remix)

Chuckie – Who Is Ready To Jump (Dillon Francis Remix)

Feed Me – One Click Headshot

Here are a few songs that range in variety from trippy all the way to demonic in nature, but they’re just so good.

Coyote Kisses – Acid Wolfpack

Manic Focus – Circles

Kill The Noise – Kill The Noise (Part 1)

Lastly I have some hard-hitting electro tunes, some of which were on my set-list. To me, there’s nothing better than a real rager of a tune that can get the crowd going and the party moving.

Swedish House Mafia & Knife Party – Antidote (Tommy Trash Remix)

Nicky Romero – Toulouse

Kaskade – Dynasty (Dada Life Remix)

Tommy Trash – Cascade

That’s it for my post this week, hopefully this selection of bangers, ragers, and chill beats makes up for the absence of my last two posts. Keep an eye out for some more Cosmic Rage from me and Lushous and I’ll be sure to keep you guys updated on any future shows that get lined up. Until next time, rage your fuckin faces off.

Welcome to another Lushous Friday Night at I am sure everybody is loving this weather right now, summer sure seems like its here already. With that said though, I somehow still have two weeks of skiing left! To the task at hand though, getting your weekend ready for raging! First up, I have my newest love coming from Seven Lions. Their remix of Florence and The Machines Cosmic Love is exactly what I love about the direction dubstep is going in. Sounding very similar to adventure club, Seven Lions has found that beautiful blend of bass wobble and soft lyrics. As I could probably ramble on for hours about this track, I will stop now. Just listen to this track and look at this weather, feels like it could be a summer anthem!

Another preview, this time working with TheVeldt by Deadmau5. This remix is a vocal work being done by Chris James. Its a very mellow track and the lyrics definitely help to bring it all together. Very appropriate music for how relaxed everybody is feeling with this weather!

Last up, keeping with the trends of remix and previews, we have Madeon. Throwing down his rendition of The Night Out – Martin Solveig, he proves to the world over and over again that he is the future of EDM. The quality is not perfect given that it is a radio rip from BBC Radio 1 but it is only the world exclusive release and clearly not finished yet! Look closely in the next few weeks as he perfects the track and gives it to the world!

So theres another Friday Night down powered by yours truly. Bask in these sunny rays while they last!

One Big Post of Current Classics

Logic may  not be a “new” artist; however, when I recently heard that there were still people that haven’t heard of him, I knew I had to post some of his music. With that being said, the basis of this post is not to post brand new music, but to introduce some artists that have been around, but are still not getting the recognition that they deserve. Below are a few tracks from “Young Sinatra”, which DO NOT disappoint, followed by Hodgy Beats and Young Roddy.

Although I have provided you with some of my favorites from these artists mix-tapes, I highly encourage you to go support them and download their mix-tapes! Enjoy!


A Post of Previews

So I have a few tracks right now that I’m really loving but sadly are only in the form of previews right now. I know your going to like these tracks but I also know how sad your going to be when the song ends with no way to hear the whole thing. But anyways, there still worth listening, gives you the chance to use your imagination and finish the song yourself!

First up we have a remix done by Deniz Koyu. He took Fedde Le Grands – So Much Love and added a whole lot of love to it. I’m really digging this track and cannot wait for the full release. Grab a listen:

Next up we have banger of a remix from R3hab and Swanky Tunes. Using the newly released vocal edit, they kept the same explosive power but with their own spin. I absolutely love the original and am definitely feeling strongly about this remix too:

Last up, keeping with the trends of remix and previews, we have Madeon. Throwing down his rendition of The Night Out – Martin Solveig, he proves to the world over and over again that he is the future of EDM. The quality is not perfect given that it is a radio rip from BBC Radio 1 but it is only the world exclusive release and clearly not finished yet! Look closely in the next few weeks as he perfects the track and gives it to the world!
