Paul Oakenfold – We Are Planet Perfecto, Vol. 2

There are new stars emerging from the electronic scene all the time but there is one uber star – whose illustrious career spans the genre’s entire history and who has consistently been at the cutting edge since day one.

Paul Oakenfold’s contribution to the birth, growth and evolution of EDM is an epic story of legendary proportions and his extensive discography documents each stage of this incredible journey.

One of the new highly acclaimed annual contributors to that discography is Paul’s exciting We Are Planet Perfecto compilation series and this year’s release sees a focus on the sound Paul Oakenfold plays at his live shows stateside.

Being the first international DJ to have “broken America” Paul has toured the length and breadth of the country continuously for the last twenty years. Moving to Los Angeles in the early 00′s Paul made the US his home and focus of his career both as a DJ and film score producer.

Featuring smokin’ hot tracks and remixes from Nicky Romero, Hardwell, Tommy Trash, John Dahlback, Richard Beynon and of course Paul himself – We Are Planet Perfecto Vol. 2 gives listeners and fans worldwide a taste of what US clubbers experience at a Paul Oakenfold live show today.

Chris Brown futuristisch in ‘I Can Only Imagine’ van David Guetta

David Guetta gaat hip hop. Artiesten staan nog steeds in de rij om met hun vocals de beats van de wereldberoemde Franse DJ te begeleiden. Nu werkt Guetta samen met Lil Wayne en Chris Brown. Voor de futuristische videoclip ‘I Can Only Imagine’ liet Chris Brown zelfs een paar gouden tanden aanmeten en is als een alien te bewonderen.

Het visuele spektakel is geregisseerd door Colin Tilley.

Bloomingdale XXL CD Release 8 juli 2012

Time flies. Al pingpongen de weergoden er lustig op los, de ‘zomer’ vliegt voorbij. Inmiddels breekt voor Bloomingdale alweer de vijfde maand aan waarmee maandelijks een zondag verrijkt wordt met een grootse XXL editie. En in de julimaand is dit er één van extra bijzonder krachtige proporties; namelijk waarmee de CD RELEASE boventoon voert! Op zondag 8 juli pakt Bloomingdale extra muzikaal uit, aangevuld met artiesten die het gevoel van de Bloomingdale CD van dit jaar haarfijn weten te vertalen…

Het album dat Bloomingdale jaarlijks uitbrengt heeft haar stempel op de dance scene gezet. In samenwerking met Defected in the House garandeert Bloomingdale opnieuw een unieke dubbel cd waarop kwaliteit, uitstraling en de beste tracklist gewaarborgd is. Met op de ene cd bruisende club beats en op de andere het hoogzomerse strandgevoel verwerkt, vormt ook deze er één om jouw muziekcollectie mee compleet te maken.

Na de trouwe en professionele mixbijdrage van de afgelopen jaren, heeft Ricky Rivaro het muzikale stokje dit jaar aan Franky Rizardo overgedragen. Franky Rizardo raast als muzikaal bezetene door de dance scene en zijn passie en talent vormen voor Bloomingdale dan ook een garantie om jou dit jaar opnieuw met een sublieme cd te kunnen verwennen.
Dat mag gevierd worden! Bij een zomers album, met hierin de allure van Beachclub Bloomingdale verwerkt, hoort natuurlijk ook een temperatuurrijzend programma.

Afrojack & Shermanology – Can’t Stop Me Now (The Remixes)

Just when you though number one record ‘Can’t Stop Me’ couldn’t get any bigger, worldstar DJ Tiesto took up the task of remixing it and he did it well! Sir Tiesto leaves most of the vocals and synth led build up and then he drops the song into a crazy electro drop that will make crowds go crazy for sure. On the flipside we find a banging remix by R3hab & Dyro. Tiesto’s rework has been around for about a month or two now, while this R3HAB & Dyro remix is fresh to ears.

Beatport released this dual remix package today featuring Tiesto and a R3HAB & Dyro collaboration. The Afrojack original was a huge tune which floated the mainstream for weeks on end.

Into The Magic … Cocoon Heroes Ibiza 2012

The magic of the White Island, the effect of the sun and the stars, the unique location in the Mediterranean Sea and the isle’s infamous stories – this is what has always made Ibiza so exceptionally attractive. Long before the Spanish and the British launched the European Acid and House movement, Ibiza had already radiated this very special magic.

For this reason and more besides, Sven Väth decided 13 years ago that Cocoon would be part of this; the idea and the music Cocoon stands for are meant to be created for this magical place, which is meanwhile the epicentre of the international club scene, year after year. Cocoon is Ibiza and Ibiza is Cocoon.

The magic, the electrifying atmosphere, the heat of the night – this is, in our dynamic times, one of the few possibilities to stop the clock, to feel the universe, to forget the monotony of everyday life and to leave it all behind. It’s the power of the island and the “spirit of cocoon” in the year 2012 – that year when we step into the age of Aquarius, it’s the turn of eras, it is spirituality and transcendence. The age of Aquarius is the era of consciousness, the era of experience.

Let us take you into the year of the magic, to the island of magic and dive into the magical night.
