NEW MUSIC: USHER – ‘LOOKING 4 MYSELF’ [ALBUM SNIPPETS]

Hi friends,

I am so happy to post that Usher’s new album will be released on my birthday, here is a little preview if you didn’t had the chance to listen…

Plus a little bonus Euphoria produced by Swedish House Mafia

With just over a week until Usher‘s ‘Looking 4 Myself’ officially arrives, the singer is giving fans a chance to preview the album with 30-second snippets of 15 of the 18 tracks on the deluxe edition. The eight-minute clip posted on SoundCloud reveals plenty of sexually-charged lyrics and a lot of dance music.

The electro-influenced ‘Can’t Stop Won’t Stop’ opens the record and sets the tone for what follows. On ‘Numb,’ Usher sings, “Keep on doing the same old thing and expecting change / Well is that really insanity or just a loser’s game?” ‘Numb’ sounds like Euro-pop, while ‘Euphoria’ lives up to its name with driving synths that pace a club-ready beat.

A few songs break from the dance-pop formula, like ‘What Happened To U,’ which has a more soulful flavor, ‘Say the Words,’ a retro R&B song built around falsetto, and ‘Dive,’ a mid-tempo ballad on which Usher coos, “I knew I was ready, baby, to take that dive.”

The single ‘Scream’ and the Rick Ross collabo ‘Lemme See’ are two of the tracks that were left out of the preview clip. ‘Looking 4 Myself’ hits retailers on June 12, two years after his last full-length release, ‘Raymond v. Raymond,’ which produced the hits ‘OMG’ and ‘More.’

FREE MUSIC: Bauer & Lanford – Bootleg Pack #1

If you haven’t been keeping up with Axel Bauer & Lanford, let me get you up to date.

Bauer & Lanford, are yet another musically endowed product of Scandinavia’s electronic Mecca, Sweden. Both skilled musicians from a young age, emerged on the scene in September of 2010 when they released an official remix of British pop artist Estelle’s “Fall in Love” on Atlantic Records.

They exemplify a unique technical production skill in accordance with meticulous progressive builds that have sequestered them track support from industry heavy weights like Tiësto, Axwell, Avicii, Paul Oakenfold, Erick Morillo, and more.

2012 promises to be a monumental year for the proficient producers. At just 20 and 21 years old, the young Swedes have shown their dedication to the exponentially growing EDM industry with numerous tours in Europe and Brazil under their belts. In addition to a third up and coming tour in Brazil, Bauer & Lanford also intend to conquer the United States. While they gain momentum, popularity, and their schedules fill up increasingly, they are also working on a number of highly anticipated original tracks and remixes to be released later during 2012.

Here is there most recent free release. It is a 4 track bootleg pack straight from the boys themselves. Check it out!

Release: Swedish House Mafia – Greyhound

As their name might sugggest, the Swedish House Mafia are a team synonymous with rigid family values and a break neck approach to anthemic floor fillers. Following up their landmark offering alongside Pendulum side-project Knife Party and the positive assortment of chart-worthy assets currently filling their musical trophy cabinet, the triumphant trio take proceedings with same momentum that has carried their legacy from the outset. Heralded by another of Sweden’s fine exports, Absolut Vodka, for an exclusive ad spot, we can rest assured that their ambitious sights for universal profiles are yet to subsist. Bringing things back to basis for the original instrumental, an array of grinding synths and symphonic chord play make for a perfectly orchestrated outing of club music that persuasively argues a case for the Swedish House Mafia’s ongoing onslaught of the clubs and charts alike.

In the same vein as the track brags further epic connotations for the dignified trio, their visual exploit alongside Absolut extends their trend of cutting-edge music videos. Ditching the controversial aspects of their previous videos, this vodka-endorsed offering see’s the three producers pitted against themselves in a somewhat augmented reality. While heralding the race that has seen them champion the realms of Electronic music, its captivating visuals and impressive CGI exploits make for an impressive addition to their legacy.

David Guetta – Nothing But The Beat (The Movie Documentary)

David Guetta is the happiest man on Earth, or so it would appear after watching his new documentary, Nothing but the Beat. This feature-length film takes viewers into the ever-so-exciting life of the renowned DJ and producer, following him everywhere in his private jet to the largest stages around the world, all saturated with diehard fans. Aside from the awkward transitions between scenes, this is the most professional documentaries made about EDM thus far — it simply blows Take One out of the water. It also tells an exceptionally inspiring story, showing how a club DJ from Paris merged an ostracized genre (house) with pop, creating an ambiguous category of music that the world not only recognizes now, but is completely infatuated with. Read on to find out more.

Guetta explains how he dreamt of becoming a resident club DJ as a kid, but didn’t have the money to buy his own turntables. He would go to the record stores and just stare at the equipment for hours, hoping that someday he would be able to turn his dream into reality and become a DJ. When his math teacher would call home and tell his parents that he wasn’t doing very well, he would explain “but I don’t need to know math, I want to be a DJ!” All odds were against him, but not only did Guetta soon become a household name in his hometown of Paris, he went on to become one of the most skilled DJs in the entire world.

The film also reveals Guetta’s true charisma — bursting with love, happiness, and drive. It’s evident after watching his interactions with other artists, DJs, and even his wife, Cathy, that he is an all-around cheerful person with a good heart. He feeds off the energy of his fans and thrives when producing hits. Nobody had a bad thing to say about him and we were left in an infectiously good mood when the movie was over.

Unlike the EDC Experience screening, the  Nothing but the Beat screening we attended in LA was very organized and well-planned, not to mention flashcrowd-free. Viewers were not only able to take photos on a green screen outside of the theater, but could view them on the provided iPads, and even print photos to take home. (They were later posted on his Facebook page.) These weren’t the only party-favors we got to take home, as the Egyptian Theater handed out free popcorn and soda to all viewers, along with stickers and glow-in-the-dark wristbands.

The best part of the night, however, was when the man-of-the-hour walked into the theater and did a Q&A with the audience. Guetta told us that he’s not completely finished with the film but was eager to show it while in Los Angeles. He also explained the reasoning behind his double-disc album — he wanted his fans to hear both sides of his talent. The more pop side features many well-known artists like Will.I.Am and Chris Brown, and his dirty electro roots get to shine on the second. It’s safe to say that Guetta will forever push the limits and blend genres of music to create new and exciting sounds. If you haven’t bought his new record yet, grab it below.
