"We Know" (Original Mix) - Swanky Tunes, DVBBS, & Eitro

Swanky Tunes is already big, but lately they've been getting what we in Electronic Dance Music call massive! After being one of Spinnin's top sellers and releasing smash-hits "Here We Go," "No One Knows Who We Are," and "The Edge" within the past year, they’ve come back with another one that looks like it could be the next big thing. "We Know" combines electric guitar play with vocals as the main melody which fuse together and build into a furious progression. Next week these Russian stars are hitting LIV Miami and I can definitely see them dropping this one to get the crowd going late into the night. Grab this one today and help these guys keep climbing the ladder to the top!

"Make Some Noise" (Skidka Remix) - Tiesto & Swanky Tunes

The reason Tiesto makes more than most professional athletes is because of the brand he's established over the years. With the rise of Electronic Dance Music Tijs made the decision to ditch his Trance productions (and the "DJ" prefix") and work towards aggressively taking over the dominating Progressive sound. His own curated brand under Musical Freedom launched back when he and Diplo collabed on "C'Mon" and has since grown into a powerhouse in the scene. With a competitive advantage comes leverage to do more and to bring more people like the Russian trio Swanky Tunes to the spotlight, but in this case it also means giving back. If you didn't know already, Tiesto has been a huge advocate for (Red), the campaign for a generation free of AIDS. This remix, first featured on Dance (Red), Save Lives but was now just released today alongside Dyro's remix which is also worth a listen. I for one think Skikda totally tackled this one head on, especially as a completely unknown artist. You can bet you'll be hearing this as one of Miami Music Week's hottest tracks.

"No One Knows Who We Are" - Kaskade & Swanky Tunes

If you were at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the first night of EDC, you probably remember hearing this one. Or maybe you don't - that's understandable too. Either way Kaskade is back on this lovely Christmas Eve with yet another Music Monday offering, and this one kills it. A rather ironic title for Ryan's most recent single release, "No One Knows Who We Are" is an anthemic festival tune from two guys you oughta know at this point in the game. Lights' vocals carefully snake around Kaskade's bigroom sound, and offer the perfect compliment to Swanky's Electro break. Get ready to pump the brakes and start jumping!

Review: R3hab & Swanky Tunes at Pacha NYC

We all know how adamant Amy Winehouse was about not going to rehab; but then again, rehab for her wasn't at Pacha. Last Friday night, R3hab killed it at the Midtown club along with Swanky Tunes, egged on by one of the biggest and rowdiest crowds I have ever seen at Pacha. While indubitably brilliant as a DJ, R3hab also demonstrated his talents in keeping a partying jumping until dawn. 

The Dutch DJ and record producer kept the crowd in suspense for a few hours before finally opening his set at 1 AM. Starting off with a few samples of his fellow DJ’s tracks, such as "Hell Yeah" by Tiesto and Showtek, a huge crowd pleaser that made the mosh pit of a crowd even sweatier.

My hype kicked in when he played my personal favorite, "Ladi Dadi" (Tommy Trash Remix). He then progressed to some newly released tracks, sampling Eva Simon’s "I Don’t Like You." Spinning a variety of head-thrashing bass, and light-hearted party anthems, R3hab managed to keep his transitions as slick as the dance floor.

 

But what all the fist-pumpers came to hear were some original R3hab creations and he did not disappoint. Aside from featuring his renditions of popular songs such as "Pass Out" by Tini Tempah, he proved his high-profile EDM status by adding some rehab remedy to "Pon De Floor," “Bounce”, and “Do The Dada”. R3hab’s standout original mix of the night was “Pump The Party” that he created alongside Ferrucio Salvo. Hot and heavy, this track left the audience more addicted than ever.

This Friday in NYC: R3hab at Pacha

Young and Dutch. There was never a finer combination of qualities that make for the ultimate DJ. Embodying both characteristics, Electro House sensation R3hab will be spinning at Pacha, this Friday, with Swanky Tunes opening up for him (yet another Lounge favorite). R3hab has been on top of his game in the past months, and will be tearing the club for only 10 dollars if you can get in before midnight. From his hot mixes of pop songs and his original instrumental tracks to outstanding bootleg productions, R3hab is a true party master. A sick track that stays close to his Dutch House brothers Afrojack and Shermanology's original is his remix of “Can’t Stop Me Now,” a party pumper for any type of crowd, and a track that we've featured as Track of the Day. If you’re looking to hear a R3hab classic however, make sure you listen to his original mix of “The Bottle Song,” a quirky number that's every bit as fun as Pacha's going to be this Friday. Make sure to come on out for a taste of EDM Lounge partying! NEW YORK CITY - YOU NEED R3HAB!!!
