THROWBACK THURSDAYS: OF JAM & OF SPOON

If you’re a EURO enthusiast, you probably know more than one tune that features a flamenco guitar riff. Well, here’s the song that did it first, and solidified it as a musical trend…

JAM & SPOON – RIGHT IN THE NIGHT

 

This power-house of a tune was…



SMUT PUSHERS 90s MIXTAPE VOL 2 SIDE 1 - COVER

SMUT PUSHERS 90s MIXTAPE VOL 2 – SIDE 2

I’ve been wanting to put together a new SMUT PUSHERS 90s MIXTAPE, literally, for years. This past weekend, I finally got a decent excuse.

From 2007 through 2009, me and VIVI DIAMOND threw a debaucherous dance party, called THUNDERPUSSY, Sundays, inside Toronto’s legendary Bovine Sex Club.

The wildest nights we ever had were our NO…



THE ELECTRO BUBBLE HAS BEEN POPPED!

It’s been a while since I wrote about POP music, and since the last, I’ve come to the realization that, in 2011, ELECTRO HOUSE officially became Pop music in North America. Being that I don’t spend much of my time following the Top 40 world, anymore, it haden’t fully dawned on me that we are…



Aaron Olson: Canada’s Rising Hard Dance Hero – By Tamerax

During my travels playing some shows across Canada, I’m happy to say I’ve met some really great people. Occasionally, I’ll meet someone who shares a lot of the same feelings about music and the Canadian music scene as I do.  One such person just happens to be on the forefront of the Canadian EDM scene….

TRANCE INJECTED OLIVE

Time for another tune that may or may not be TRANCE. This one can be found, on various digital music stores, categorized as HOUSE, ELECTRO, EURODANCE, and yes even TRANCE. I’m gonna  put in my 2 cents and say that this is a Trancey jam.

It’s a…



TRANCEY, BREAKY, AND RARE

I’ve got a song that I think will satisfy both TRANCE and BREAKS fans, aswell as RARE VINYL enthusiasts.

It’s from a one-off record of bootleg breaks remixes, called MIDWEST BREAKS, and it’s a rip of ATB’s classic 2002 Trance anthem, HOLD YOU. Doesn’t sound familiar? You’ve probably heard it. This one was big. Check out…



HHC UPDATED

HAPPY HARDCORE is a genre that has always borrowed great vocals from other genres of music. It has also produced some of the most uplifting party vocals of all time. You bet I think it’s a great idea to borrow HHC’s most awesome vocals for updated versions in other, more modern versions of Dance. Here’s…



MOSFER MAKES TRANCE WITHOUT A DOUBT

PREVIOUSLY, I was writing about my quest to figure out what exactly makes a song TRANCE. Well, I still don’t have an answer, but I have found a great jam that is undeniably Trance!

Mosfer Feat. Kate – Trance State

This song has TRANCE in the name, and the lyrics repeat “this is Traaaance”….



MAYBE AXWELL KNOWS WHAT TRANCE IS?

TRANCE was the first form of underground electronic dance music that I ever heard (or atleast that’s what I was told it was). At first, I thought all EDM was called Trance. On the first mixtape I ever had (which was on a blank casette from a friend), I wrote “TRANCE VOL 1″, but it…
