david Guetta : Nothing But The Beat – the 5th album (best of)

As we mentioned before, David Guetta has now released his 5th studio album…

This is a must have.. Get it. Download it. Buy at HMV. Buy it on iTunes. Download from where you can afford it. Do it. BUT.. make sure to get the version that contains 2 disks… NOT the US version…

Seriously.

So the reason for that is cuz the goodness lies on the second cd. We already mentioned the singles Lunar and Glasgow..

I would say the whole 2nd disk is simply delicious, with the likes of : Metro Music (very Daft Punk), The Future, Dreams & Sunshine (w/Avicii)… But the honourable mention goes to: Alphabeat! My vote goes to this one for the best track on the album!

Not to mention having listened to the ready-to-take-over-the-radio Disc.1, I can also say… not badd D.G. … not bad…

As seen on novanation:

Nothing But The Beat, one of the hotly anticipated releases of the year, pushes the boundaries of dance music even further. In David’s words ‘I’m not trying to be credible, I’m trying to be incredible.”

 “The first part of the album is more emotional, more songs, more human,” he says. “The second part is based on synthesizers, it’s more technical and mechanical.”

 “For me, I always wanted dance music to be as big as hip-hop, as big as rock and pop. And I just wanted to change those rules because the way I see it it’s just about good music, it’s not about if it’s underground or mainstream, it’s about it being good.  To be able to have the most credible DJs on the planet play my records and at the same time to hear the same records on the radio and have children that can sing my songs and party.”

Ciao, bambinos!

Guetta just might gain back the respect of the underground w/ Lunar…

You might have heard my rants about how Guetta has hit rock bottom with his mainstream productions.. I mean he’s not the same man that produced the Guettablaster and Pop Life (even One Love, though that was the turning point)... I still recall the way Joan of Arc used send geyser’s of dance moves into my ears every time I listened to that build-n-drop.

Anyway, despite all the crap on the radio Continue reading

Avicii – Fuck the Music

I am the last person you would hear say those words.. it goes against every fiber of my being! its blasphemy! but its also the name of this Avicii track that gets stuck on repeat every time it rolls in on my iPod. and roooOOOllll it does; it starts in my shoulders.. then without fail, my arm starts this little downward fistpump like im starting up a lawnmower. At 2:30 Timmy B turns the synth up to 11 and all hell breaks loose. I cant even control myself at this point. The hips already joined the dance party and eventually my right leg starts flailing because there isn’t enough room in my extremities for this much rhythm. This song is dangerous and contagious.

Disclaimer: Don’t listen to it in the shower, you will hurt yourself.

enjoy.

your shameless dancer,

Casba
