I know to everyones surprise, here is another post, back to back days. Today I have a special interview with major talent, UberVice. I started talking with him when he joined the BOOM Movement (www.boommovement.com) with me and he was happy to give me an interview for the site. I was not original in any way with the questions but it gives a great insight into what Evan is up to and what he has plans for the future. Read up on this guy, check out his music, like him on facebook, follow him on twitter and keep your eyes open in the future!

What’s your name? How old are you? Where you from?

My name is Evan Weiss and I’m 21-years-old. I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and I currently live in Columbia, Missouri where I attend Mizzou.

Why do you call yourself UberVice?

It was a nickname that sort of caught on in highschool. I had a buddy that worked at Oberweis ice cream so naturally I visited him so I could get some free ice cream. My last name is pronounced “Vice” in German and one of my highschool teachers would call me Mr. “Vice.” So between those two frequent occurrences the name UberVice was born. Weiss also means “white” in German so you could also say that I’m super-white. Because I’m super white.

Why’d you start producing/mixing and who are your biggest inspirations?

I was the drummer/producer in an indie/electronic band so I learned how to produce during the 3 years we were together. I reeeaaally got into electronic music after I saw Boys Noize and MSTRKRFT live at Lollapalooza in ’08. I was heavy into metal and hardcore at the time and the energy at that show far surpassed anything I’d ever seen before. The final blow was (cliche) Deadmau5. I sold my soul after that.

What kind of sound are you going for?

Whatever comes out of my brain.

Best show you’ve ever been to?

Best rock show: Tool. Best EDM show: Deadmau5 or BT.

Favorite Performance/Venue?

That’s a hard one. I’d say my biggest crowd was at DAYGLOW. However, I gotta say I love my residency at Tonic in Columbia, MO. It’s weekly mayhem. Someone is either naked, throwing up, throwing things, or dancing on objects.

What are your preferred tools of the trade?

I use Ableton Live for producing. I’ve got a Moog Slim Phatty and a Microkorg XL that get frequent use. I use an NS7 when I play out. I love it.

What do you like about performing?

My favorite part of performing is making the crowd go “OOOOOOOOOOOH!!” (you know that sound). There’s no other feeling like it. You know you’re doing your job as a DJ and you know everyone is having an excellent time.

Do you get nervous before you go on stage?

More often than not, yes. You’re not going to get better if you’re not leaving your comfort zone and trying new things out.

Any lessons or all self-taught? Any background in music or other instruments?

I’m self-taught. I find that I learn better if I just dive in and figure things out myself. However, I’ve also learned a lot from DJ Gizmo and DJ Deks (2 other DJs in my town). As for drumming, I had a teacher for 6 years.

Future Plans?

I’m currently in negotiation with a label to get my debut EP out in the Fall. I’ll also be playing at Pulse in St. Louis alongside names like Above & Beyond, Morgan Page, and Krewella. And I’m working closely with my sponsor BOOM Movement headphones on throwing several events in the Midwest over the summer. I’m extremely excited for the next couple months and I want to thank everyone who’s believed in me and helped me out!

So now that we have the interview out of the way, its time for some new music. First up we have a song that was introduced to me by a friend of mine and I cannot start to express my gratitude. Tommy Trash has been growing in my iTunes with every week it seems and I am finally bursting to put some of his music up. His latest track is the purpose of this post though, as he has taken Deadmau5′s VELDT and turned it into something insane. I am a huge lover of the original so obviously this remix had to be epic for me to like it. I cannot say enough how important it is for you to listen to this track:
I’ve also got a preview here of what I presume is going to be his next release:
Next up, I’ve got the most recent drop from Flosstradamus. His new track, Lana’s Theme, has received an immense amount of love in the last 24 hours since it’s release. So give it a listen and see what all the hype is about!
Finally, we will finish off with a little wobbly love from Griz. This guy is honestly the king of making a chill track shake your bones. His remix of Behind Blue Eyes by The Who was insanity and I know I listened to that track far too many times. So this track is no different and I am telling you, LISTEN TO THIS TRACK!!!!
Alright that its for day two on this bender writing spree. I’ll keep the coming if you keep supporting!

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.

Welcome to another Lushous Friday Night at BombBeats.org. 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!

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!

Martin Solveig – The Night Out (Madeon Remix)

There ya have it, just a quick little post to enjoy during this beautiful weather. See you Friday!

My Name is Lushous

Alright so anybody who has been following BombBeats for a while is probably wondering who the hell Lushous is. Well after fighting the name for almost 2 years now, I have decided to finally embrace it and change my DJ name officially to Lushous. I knew that BLVD was only a temporary name, but I feel this one will be around for a long time to come. So tonight is my first post as Lushous and hopefully I will start off with a bang.

So the world of music has been kind of slow in the last week without many tracks that really got me excited. I did manage to find a few so I will start off with these. First up is a Red Hot Chili Peppers remix, which surprisingly are not remixed well very often. This bootleg, coming from the Promise Land, is sure be a club banger in no time.There giving it away for free too, so grab it before they charge for it! So here it is, Red Hot Chili Peppers – Californication ( Promise Land Bootleg):

This next one, although not new, has gained a immense amount of publicity in the past few weeks. As a tribute to Whitney Houston, here is the Van Hooft & Forever Kid Remix of How Will I Know:

The much anticipated and waited for release from Alesso is finally here, although still only released as a 2:30 preview. This song is going to be huge though, trust me with that. Plus after seeing this guy live at UNH, it’s easy to tell that Alesso is here to stay! So heres Alesso’s newest single, Years:

While were talking about Alesso, the time has finally come when we get to listen to a released version of Calling with Vocals. Officially called Calling “Lose My Mind”, here is Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s joint speaker blower:

As I mentioned above, I had the pleasure of seeing R3hab, Alesso and David Guetta live two weeks ago and it was insane to say the least. Since all the videos I took on my flip were incredibly shaky, here is the official after movie. Try and say UNH doesn’t know how to throw a party after watching this video!

So nobody can debate that Skrillex has been getting a lot of hype lately due to his 3 Grammy wins. He took the original Cinema by Benny Benassi and made it the top remix of 2011 as crowned by the Grammy committee. So what happens when you take that same song and instead of turning it up 5 levels of intense, you bring it down 10 levels? You get Jason Evigan’s remix, which is impossible to describe as it leaves you speechless. So if your going to only watch a bit of this video, please make sure you watch at least 2 minutes of it.

Back to motivating your weekend activities, I leave you with a video and a song that will do nothing else but pump you up.  The track is DIY by Savoy who, as posted a few days ago, will be coming to Killington for the SnowMont Music Festival. This track was also featured in a commercial for GoPro cameras. GoPro has used many EDM artist for ad’s including Skrillex and The Glitch Mob. Savoy’s DIY adds so much to the commercial which features motorcycle riding by Ronnie Renner:

So hopefully that was the dose of music you were looking for and a solid introduction to Lushous. See you Friday!

 

Weekend Starter: Dillion Francis, Project 46

Deadmau5 is obviously full of surprises left and right.Heres another surprise, his newest release, Maths:

Heres some new music, hopefully these songs will get onto your music playing devices in time to make your weekend all it can be. One artist that I have been absolutely loving lately is Dillon Francis. He has been dropping banger after banger and in my opinion is one of the biggest up and comers right now. In the studio he’s been nothing short of extraordinary and his live performances are from what I’ve heard impossible to beat. Now to the music, since I am sure everyone is probably sick of listening to me by now. First up we have his newest release, a remix of his original track, IDGAFOS. Here it is, first song of the night, IDGAFOS 2.0 by Dillon Francis.

Dillon Francis – IDGAFOS 2.0

Next up we have another speaker blower from Dillon Francis. This track, released 5 days ago, does not disappoint in the slightest. Teaming up with Kill the Noise to bring a fine mesh of talent, here is Dill the Noise:

Basically if those last two songs have no intrigued you enough to go get as much Dillon Francis as you can, then maybe this will convince you. A remix of Steve Aoki’s Earthquaky People, putting his signature Moonbahton sound down on this already killer track. Please listen to this one, trust me its worth your time!!!

Next up, we have a Project 46, who has been absolutely blowing the doors off of the music blog world. Hailing from the beautiful great white north, residing only an hour from where I grew up, they are doing something right really quickly. There last four releases have topped the Beatport, Hype Machine and iTunes lists while also shaking clubs and venues around the world. Their newest release, a remix of Alesso’s newest track, is just amazing.Also Check out these tracks and check out Project 46, going to be a big big year for them, starting with a debut at the Miami Music Week.

So there you have it, a late but hopefully essential post to satisfy your musical taste buds. I am already starting on next weeks post so prepare to have more music than you can handle be thrown onto your computer.

The Bombs are Dropping!

Hello BombBeats Nation. I know it has been far too long since my last friday bombing and I am sorry for that. We all took a much needed break over christmas but are now back in full force. This friday I have the new drop from afrojack himself, a bunch of remixes that will blow your mind and a preview to Wolgang Gartners newest track. First though, I have a confession, I cheated on BombBeats last night and made a post to another site. I am still completely loyal to BB and this will only help bring us to the next level. If you want to check out the post, find it here:

http://www.enthuzed.com/welcome-to-thursday-night/

Its a sick site with a lot going on, so be sure to check it out regularly. Back to music though, why your probably here. First up we have the newest drop from afrojack called Can’t Stop Me Now. As described by a friend, it truly is a Bomb Beat so of course its being posted tonight.

Download: Can’t Stop Me Now – Afrojack

Next up I have a track that has been playing absolutely non stop on my computer. Fareoh is a big up and comer in the EDM world and I cannot wait to see more from this guy. Definitely an Avicii influenced sound but nonetheless one hell of a beat.

Download: Buy My Love (Fareoh Remix)

Madeon finally released an original and did he ever throw one down. This song has the madeon sound we have learned to love but taken to new heights in an original format.

Download: Icarus (Original Mix) – Madeon

These guys were a huge help in me producing some of my tracks this past summer and for that will always be on my radar. Dada Life to me puts out some of the hardest hitting songs out there with drops that can break windows. So when somebody can remix one of there songs to makes it hit even harder, its is definitely BB worthy.

Download: Happy Violence (David Menezes Rmx) – Dada Life

Avicii, Avicii, Avicii. This is what my head is filled with almost every single day. Its amazing how I can listen to the same songs day in and day out and still love them just as much as the first time I heard them.  This time though, Avicii has paired up with none other than Nervo for a stunning compilation.

Download: You’re Gonna Love Again (Extended Mix) – Avicii & Nervo

As promised above, here is the new preview to Wolgang Gartners newest release.

Another one from soundcloud, we have a Fedde le Grand remix that is more than worthy of being in this weeks list of tunes.

So to finish off this post, here are some songs that have also been grabbing a ton of plays lately. If you only listened to one song though, I would have to recommend the Coldplay remix by Dimitri Vangelis. Also If Its Love is a song that was 1. a surprise and 2. a blessing that I found it.

Download: The Scientist (Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman need Howie’s thin mint cookies Mix) – Coldplay

Download: If It’s Love – Jeziel Quintela, Jquintel & Manufactured Superstars

Download: Midnight City (Eric Prydz ‘Private’ Remix) – M83

Download: Middle Finger (Bingo Players Remix) – Cobra Starship

Download: Baby (Upside Down) (Original Mix) – Alvita feat. Levy Pro

Download: We Are Now Connected (Original Mix) – Mord Fustang

See you Monday, where a whole ton of dub will be coming your way, including something special *cough*top 25 of 2011 *cough cough*.

Introducing: Cosmic Rage

So polAris and I have been talking about putting together a mix for a few months now. Yesterday, we finally found the time and were plenty motivated to accomplish just that. Our name, Cosmic Rage as thought up by polAris himself and what we do is put together an array of genres into a flowing, epic adventure through music. So here it is, our first mix, a BombBeats.org exclusive:

Download: The Beginning – Cosmic Rage

The track listing can be posted if people would like too. Just take our word for it and grab this track, its worth the space on your computer. Just sit back and relax and let us pick the songs and you to the raging!

A Year to Remember

I don’t think anybody can argue that this was the year of EDM. Big names from around the world pumped out new songs almost weekly while somehow touring for months at a time. Trying to narrow down all the songs from 2011 into a top 25 list was quite the task but I embarked on it for everyone out there. So if you have been busy this year and your iTunes is still without these songs, heres your chance to catch back up and start raging to your full potential. The order of these songs is not important nor is it intentional except for the number one ranked song. So here they are, the songs that rocked our world all year long:

No Beef (Vocal Mix) – Steve Aoki & Afrojack

Seek Bromance (Avicii Arena Mix)

Fade Into Darkness – Avicii

Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall (Avicii’s ‘Tour’ Mix)

Hello Miami (2011 WMC Anthem) – Avicii

Bounce – Calvin Harris

Feel So Close – Calvin Harris

Happy Violence (Vocal Extended Mix) – Dada Life

Calling (Original Instrumental Mix) – Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso

Titanium (Alesso Remix) – David Guetta

We’re All No One – Nervo

Lunar (Original Mix) – David Guetta & Afrojack

Turn It Down (Extended Mix) – Kaskade Feat Rebecca & Fiona

Drowning (Avicii Remix)

Raise Your Head (Original Mix) – Alesso

The Island (Steve Angello, AN21, Max Vangelli Remix)

Paradise (Fedde Le Grand Remix)

Pressure (Alesso Radio Edit)

Sunshine – Avicii & David Guetta

Raise Your Weapon (Madeon Extended Remix)

Fight Club Is Closed (Original Mix) – Dada Life

Aces High (Prutataaa) (Original Mix) – Afrojack

Derezzed (Vocal Edit) – Avicii

Save The World – Swedish House Mafia

And the most anticipated part, this years number one song is, drum roll please………

Levels – Avicii

Ever since I first heard this song in avicii’s essential mix, when it was first called ID, I fell in love with this song. Avicii has been absolutely tearing up this whole year and Levels is quite possibly one of the most epic electro anthems of all time. And if you didn’t already see it, here is the music video for the song of the year.

and if his music wasn’t sick enough, I got to hang out with avicii when he came to UNH. (Yeah I’m posting it again)

So there you have it, this unbelievable year of music has come to an end but opening the doors for one hell of a 2012. See you very soon as I am back, with much time and much music to post.

Raging away the Thanksgiving Calories

So I am sure that everybody is still incredibly full  from yesterday, I know I am. Todays post is going to help everybody work off that Thanksgiving gut with some serious head-bobbing leading into some finger tapping. Next thing you know your going to be dancing alone in your bedroom, burning calories faster than you consumed them. Also this week, these songs have descriptions, artist background and input where ever I want to put it, it’s amazing what having time away from school changes.

Last Week, Deadmau5, the now EDM mogul, released his latest creation. ‘Aural Psynapse’ in a way brings us back to the days before MTV, a time when the majority were calling this phenom, dead-mau-five. To me this track is classic Deadmau5, seemingly simple initially but as the lead synths and melody build, not only are my ears happy, but the complexity is driven home. For those of you lucky enough to have seen the Mau5 live recently, you may have heard this track; I can only imagine what this song sounds like live. Massive and desensitizing as always I’m sure.

Download: Aural Psynapse – Deadmau5

And just to butter up this already sweet song, we have a remix by Myndset that takes the song to an entirely new level.

Download: Aural Psynapse (Myndset Remix)

And since I’m not done, here’s a beautiful video to show everyone who doesn’t already know how epic Deadmau5 is in concert, playing of course, Aural Psynapse.

Several months ago, this song surfaced on the internet and, unfortunately, we only had a rip to listen to. When this track hit the blog world, it immediately received a ton of attention. At one point, it hit the number one spot on HypeM! Some of you may have forgotten about this hidden gem of Avicii’s, but we sure didn’t. We were able to get a hold of a good version of the track and it’s been on repeat ever since with the next song. The version we got is not the final version, but its a keeper in our opinion! There hasn’t been any information put out about this track, hopefully he decides to release this because it’s a track that needs to be in everyone’s iTunes. Avicii, never ceases to amaze us here at Remix Nation, and by the looks of it, he will be closing out this year with a bang. Either way, I couldn’t be happier to finally have a good quality version of this song, so make sure to check it out!

Download: Let Me Show You Love (ASH & Avicii’s Hype Machine Mix)

And as mentioned above, the newest addition from Avicii. Although this just the preview for the song, I can tell you first hand the full version is unbelievable live. I asked Avicii about the song and when to be expecting a drop but he said he still had some work to do before the full release. So here is the preview to ID2 from Avicii.

Download: ID2 (HQ Preview) – Avicii

While were on the Avicii topic, I finally got the HQ photo from my time with Avicii. If I had facebook, this would definitely be my display picture for the next 10 years.

In Avicii’s set at UNH and getting play from many others is Alesso’s remix of Titanium by David Guetta. After much scrounging the internet, I finally found a high quality rip for everyone to enjoy.

Download: Titanium (Alesso Remix) – David Guetta

So there you go, a post much deserved by all you avid followers. Make sure to turn up these songs extra loud and be sure to leave some room because these will get your feet moving.
