As you may have dually noted, I haven’t posted long past my previous deadline of Labor Day. Yes, my computer is working again. To be completely honest, Phish and jam bands have completely overtaken my musical interest as of late. Stop following me if this offends you. I would eventually really, truly like to get back into the blogosphere, but I just can’t find the motivation to do so with my current musical interests at the moment. Please accept my apology for my lack of absolute jams. If you’re struggling to find music, I assure you that most of the music I’ve posted before (links still being functional permitting) can and will totally rock your world if you let it. Until we meet again, tumblr, this it TB, signing out.
As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted anything in weeks. My computer is broken and well, it’s summer, who wants to be hunched over a computer all the time. We’ll be back in full force soon, definitely by Labor Day. Have a great summer, keep raging!
RED HOT CHILLY PEPPERS ANNOUNCED THAT THEY ARE RELEASING A NEW ALBUM THIS AUGUST 30TH. Can’t wait.
1. Brand New Zed’s Dead set from their BBC Radio appearance, it’s fantastic. Dubstep.
2. Tiesto - “Green Sky”. Techno. Classic Tiesto with another solid track. One of my favorites from him I’ve heard in a long time.
3. Rockie Fresh - “Otherside”. Hip-Hop/Rap. In honor of the great RHCP, here’s a Rockie Fresh track, sampling none other than “Otherside”. High Quality Beat Work.
4. Crosby, Stills,Nash & Young - “Judy Blue Eyes” (Sound Remedy Remix). Electronic. A risky move, Sound Remedy takes a classic rock track, and promptly and successfully brings it into 2011.
5. Bingo Players - “Cry (Just A Little)”. Electronic. With vocal sampling straight out of the late 70’s, the Bingo Players create an irresistibly addictive original track.
As you may have noticed, hip-hop doesn’t make it’s way on to OSMS very often. Every now and again, I throw up some rap that I really dig, and today we’ve got Skizzy Mars, an unsigned rapper out of NYC throwing down some sick verses over well-produced ratatat-esque beats. His relaxed attitude make his music perfect for lazy summer afternoons. Here are his two newest tracks released about a week ago. Enjoy.
Yes, this is another remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed”, but Monsier Adi provides us with a unique remix, producing cool vibes with just the right amount of intensity. Overall, this is a quality, relaxed electronic remix of a (now) classic Goulding track. Download link provided below. Enjoy.
Download it HERE.
Trying out a new way to post these soundcloud links, so here’s an original track titled “Lucid Truth” by Blackmill, the DJ responsible for the huge “Time” and “Your Song” remixes. I’m hoping to make OSMS a bit more Dashboard friendly, so hopefully this comes out the way I plan. Sorry, no download on this track yet. Available on iTunes for people that still buy music…
So I haven’t posted for about 2 weeks, I’ve been running around all of New England working and partying and I just really haven’t had the time to keep myself updated and thus you updated. To try and catch up a little bit, I’ll be posting about 5 (give or take 5 more) tracks at a time with little text so that you get your BANG for your metaphorical buck until I start to get better at posting again, which may not be until September. Again, sorry for the hiatus, but appreciate the increase of followers without the new tracks even coming! These tracks are in no order, and are a mix of old, new, and really new, so enjoy.
1. Djane Turrach - The Spirit of the Night (Henry Blank Remix). Big-House. Don’t know anything about either the original artist or Henry Blank, but their work together results in a massive club-ready track.
2. LMFAO - Party Rock Anthem (Benny Benassi Remix). Trance-Pop (making up genres left and right, you get the idea). Never really respected LMFAO, probably never will, they just ooze Jersey Shore clubbing. A catchy tune turned massive by the one and only Benassi.
3. Sesto Sento - What Are You Waiting For? (Chrizz Luvly Remix). Trance-House. OSMS has watched (and helped) Chrizz Luvly rise through the ranks, and this Brazilian has been throwing down some serious heat in his oh-so-characteristic fashion.
4. Far East Movement (Featuring Snoop Dogg) - If I Was You (OMG) (Disco Fries Remix). Mainstream Techno. This is one of my favorite tracks right now, and has started to blow up all over the internet lately. It’s quite mainstream and catchy as HELL, so look for this one in the clubs soon, Disco Fries are here to stay.
5. Skrillex & Foreigner Beggers - Still Gettin’ It. DUBSTEP. Sorry to make you wait dubsteppers, hope you weren’t getting nervous. Absolute banger, meshing the British rap scene with dubstep perfectly. Must download.
More after the jump!
Hardwell has a weekly set that he plays on Sirius XM and puts on Soundcloud featuring a few of his songs and a bunch of other artists’ songs. This track is from one of his On Air mixes and is produced by German DJ Mark Tonic. “Find It Out” is addicting, immediately grabbing you with some female vocals as the beat builds. There isn’t a massive drop, but the drop provided on this house track definitely suffices.
Ignore the first 24 seconds, the download doesn’t have the annoying intro part.

Loch Lomond is a sextet out of Portland, Oregon that have a truly unique sound, blending symphonic sounds with pop like lyrics, creating a one-of-a-kind genre. “Wax and Wire” is my favorite of theirs, it’s so catchy you’ll need to listen to it at least twice, immediately. To help, I’ve posted one of my favorite videos of all time, which features “Wax and Wire”. Enjoy the song, enjoy the video. Both are just stunning.
Loch Lomond - “Wax and Wire”

Danny MacAskill - “Way Back Home”
Flux Pavilion has continued to produce some of my favorite tracks one after another, and continues the trend with his newest remix along side his good friend Doctor P, this of DJ Fresh’s “Louder”. Even though Doctor P is featured, this track has Flux written all over it. A big buildup to a huge drop at the 0:55 mark. Flux is also known for awesome sequences dead center of the remix that continue to the last buildup. In “Louder”, this moment comes during the 1:50-2:30 period, so listen extra carefully to that section. Flux is coming over to this side of the pond to play a bunch of shows across North America next month, so make sure to see him when he comes through a city near you.
Soundcloud version is a rip and doesn’t have the whole song, but the download link is the real deal.
