[R&B] “Yonce” & “Partition” Beyonce Remix

Beyonce

Beyonce‘s surprise album has only been live for just over a week and djs are already all over her music – they liked it so they put a remix on it.

Music producer, dj and songwriter Yashar Gasanov mixed Beyonce’s “Yoncé” and “Partition” singles into a slow-moving, deep house and techno twist. With the bass in tact and the piano adding to the rhythm, Gasanov’s crafts a remix to be obsessed about.  As Queen B puts it, he “sneezed on the beat and the beat got sicker, Yoncé y’all on his mouth like liquor.”

[House] – “Wakanda” by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike

I’m sorry peeps, but this post has been long overdue. It’s been two weeks since Swedish House Mafia‘s One Last Tour – which I attended twice because, well, you know, YOLO – and I wanted to dedicated tonight’s content to house music.

I’ve been on a house/dance/electro streak now since those two nights of intense fist-pumping and head-banging and can’t find another song than “Wakanda” that better expresses this experience.

House enthusiasts Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike created this epic track. The song (and the image) reflects the rhythms and sounds originating from tribes of the Northeastern African region. Add a hard-hitting bass and tribal beats to the mix and you’ve got one sick house hit. Eh ai ee nene…

[House] “Sweeter Love” – Blue Six

I’ve only recently been introduced to the ‘deep house, down tempo’ music of Blue Six and I’m only sad I haven’t been listening to them sooner!

Blue Six, produced by Jay Denes, plays a mix of house, soulful pop and smooth jazz, which might often remind you of lounge music – and their 1998 release “Sweeter Love” expresses just this. You might even find yourself singing along with the “ah ah” parts – or maybe that’s just me?

[House] “KNAS” – Steve Angello

Before Swedish House Mafia, Steve Angello had already made a name for himself in the house/electro/techno world with hit tracks likes Gypsy and Tivoli.

KNAS, released in 2010, is another one of his hits that brought him fortune and fame. Although there is controversy surrounding the production of this track (he allegedly sampled this song with his only contribution being the percussion), there is no denying that the beat is off the hizzie.

The song starts off with what sounds like a ticking time bomb. Insert a few sharp, high-pitches notes and you will experience an explosive eargasm of sorts at 1:30. No kidding.

Oh. And you might want to turn up your speakers.

[House] “Epic” – Sandro Silva & Quintino

Quintino

If you’re looking for a fist-pumper with a lot of bass, this should do the trick.

A friend of mine introduced me to this song at a pre-drink (obviously), and needless to say it was put on repeat.

This track features Holland’s Sandro Silva and Afrojack-collaborator, Quinto. It begins with what seems like a typical dance track -intz intz intz intz – and creates a simple melody before reaching a climax with a much anticipated loud and heavy-hitting bass. Trust me, it’s heavy.

If you’re in the mood to dance, turn up the speakers because this song is indeed, epic.
