whiiite

Following his recent nomination as one of the Top 10 L.A. DJs by The L.A. Sun Times with Dillon Francis, Kill Paris, Kill The Noise and Ookay, today Hollywood producer/DJ Whiiite sets out on his winter mini-tour hitting Kansas City, Murfreesboro, Las Vegas and more – full tour routing is below.

Along with this exciting announcement, the fifth podcast in Whiiite’s new Miiilkcrate Radio series is here and it’s absolutely stacked! Falcons x Mike G “Oh!” (Ciara x Ludacris) is fire and kicks things off with a bang, and tracks from Galantis, SNBRN, The Weeknd, Aaliyah, Jack U and more keep the energy flowing. The massive “No Type of Landline” remix from Rae Sremmurd, A-Trak and GTA begins the transition into some rap tracks including a killer Biggie x Ice Cube mashup. The carefully crafted mix also features also a brief section of hard hitting trap with Gladiator before things begin to settle down. Whiiite weaves g-house, R&B and hip hop together with highly danceable beasts throughout the podcast, including his fresh new remix of Juicy J’s “Low” (Whiiite’s Future1Hundred Mix) which you can download for free right HERE.

Brand New: Duck Sauce

Click on image to go buy the track on iTunes

Finally!!! Duck Sauce, the Grammy-nominated duo consisting of Fool’s Gold trendsetting boss A-Trak and house legend Armand Van Helden, are putting the final touches on their debut studio album, Quack, due for release this fall on Casablanca records. Together they shuffle into the summer with the absurdly catchy single “It’s You” and an equally bonkers, hair-raising video by acclaimed director Philip Andelman.

“It’s You” properly follows in the webbed footsteps of Duck Sauce’s past video hits, including 2011’s VMA nominated, comically grotesque “Big Bad Wolf” and the viral smash “Barbra Streisand” in 2010. The stadium-filling whistle of “Barbra” remains one of the biggest dance tracks of the last decade, racking up over 100 million YouTube plays and hitting #1 in 12 countries.

Duck Sauce plan to shake things up with Quack, coming later this year. This isn’t your typical dance album: Quack pushes the boundaries of house music and sampling into an absurdly visual listening experience, interwoven with skits, scratching and irresistible loops. Expect many more videos from the pair of New York prankster pioneers.

Listen: New Music from Lifelike

Click to go listen to Lifelike’s remix of The Presets’ “Promises”

Have a listen to Lifelike’s electro infused remix of The Preset’s “Promises” in anticipation of Modular’s release of the “Promises” Remix EP ( December 4th). If the original is the backdrop to a cool and retro pool party than Lifelike’s remix is perfect for the all-nighter at your favorite club. The incredibly catchy vocals paired with an amped up bass line, electrified beat and Lifelike’s classic French-style synth work make this remix of “Promises” a dance floor bomb.

Also, check out Lifelike’s new single “Don’t Stop” featuring A-Trak

Listen: Lifelike – “Don’t Stop” ft. A-Trak

“The funky nu-disco track has a compellingly feel-good melody, effectively merging classic cosmic disco effects with banging bass and undulating electro-synths. The welcome inclusion of grinding vocals absorbs listeners, creating quite the blissful ambiance, albeit with outstandingly old-school vibes.” – SF Critic

“Starting with a booming kick drum and then leading into an electronic disco inferno, the song is [a] ferociously bombastic dance number.” – Prefix Mag

“Chances are you’ll forego that second (or third) does of caffeine once you hear the new collaboration from like-minded DJs/producers Lifelike and A-Trak. The duo weaves together a future-disco banger with “Don’t Stop,” an appropriate title given the track’s infectious grooves.” – Complex Music

A-Trak and I really get to be fans ourselves as we put these together, thinking about how good it’s all going to sound when it’s played loud.”

Newest Love: Gemini Club

“They have a synth-pop sound that just makes you want to dance, whether you’re at a dance party, in you car, or in your office cubicle and bursts with energy.” – CBS Chicago

“If you like to, you know…dance, we think it’s a pretty safe bet, since this three-piece electro-indie dance band is on a mission to make you move.” – Refinery 29

Gemini Club, consisting of Dan Brunelle, Tom Gavin and Gordon Bramli, is a three-piece indie-electronic dance band hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Their unique live shows have been tearing up the scene for the last two years, and commencing dizzying dance parties in every city they go! Far from the conventional live performance, Gemini Club have a specially designed rig that allows for on-the-fly remixing of their own songs meaning each Gemini Club show is different from the last. As a result, Gemini Club has been asked to the support the likes of Chromeo, A-Trak, Two Door Cinema Club, Who-Made-Who, DJ Falcon and Chateau Marmont.

Their first single, “Ghost” came out hot in the blogosphere, resulting in remixes from Hey Champ, Barretso, Golden Bug and Only Children. The track has since been picked up for airplay from BBC Radio 1’s tastemaker show “In New DJs We Trust.”

From the mid-west to the Orient, Gemini Club’s own remix chops are in demand online and across the globe. Their remix for Australian band The Vanish went straight into the top ten of Hype Machine’s charts. The band’s spin on Hey Champ’s “Cold Dust Girl” entered the same top ten charts on five different occasions within a month – and their remix for Shinichi Osawa has been a mainstay on the iTunes dance charts in Japan. Most recently, the gents of GC’s remix of Chilly Gonzales song “You Can Dance” premiered on the RCRD LBL blog as the most downloaded track of the week.

Martin Solveig – The Night Out EP

When Martin Solveig’s live performance of ‘The Night Out’ at Radio 1’s celebration of Pete Tong’s 20 years at the station prompted the veteran disc jockey to ask for a copy pronto, it gave a clear indicator that the record – written, produced and performed by Solveig – had a very bright future.
Several months on, and having contributed heavily on Madonna’s latest studio album, ‘MDNA’ – including the lead single ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ featuring Nicki Minaj and MIA – Solveig’s focus returns once again to his ‘SMASH’ project. ‘The Night Out’ E.P is packed to the seams with a raft of remixes and bonus material that’ll cater to all fans, both new and old.
The A-Trak remix set the ball rolling having topped the Hype Machine as well as receiving full support from both Annie Mac and Pete Tong over recent weeks. Always keen to exploit up and coming talent, Solveig also welcomes in newcomers TheFatRat for what will be a firm favourite in big arenas, as well as new duo Maison & Dragen.
Martin’s own take on A-trak’s remix makes for great aural pleasure, and then comes the inclusion of ‘Can’t Stop’ into the package, providing another slab of pure pop fun from Martin Solveig & Dragonette. Throw in a truly awesome instrumental version of Ready 2 Go (Initial SHE version), a Don Diablo take on ‘Hello’ with the rapper iSH (Why Are We Whispering remix) AND finally the Les Bros remix of ‘Big in Japan’ and the realisation will dawn that this is indeed one hell of an E.P.

Grammy Nomination – A-Trak

The entire world has sung along to Duck Sauce’s international breakout hit “Barbra Streisand” released in the US on Fool’s Gold/Downtown Records. The song charted at #1 in over 12 countries and racked up 65 million YouTube views with arguably the biggest viral video of all time, a quirky, star-studded homage to New York’s downtown scene. “Barbra” landed placements in Glee, How to Make it in America and countless ad campaigns. Continuing its assault, it is now nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. A-Trak’s partner in Duck Sauce, the legendary Armand Van Helden, is no stranger to the Grammys himself, having been nominated for Remixer of the Year in 1998. The video for the duo’s current single “Big Bad Wolf” has already shaken up the internet, heralded across the board as the best video of 2012 and sitting at 6 million views after just a few weeks of release.

This year has seen DJ A-Trak conquer every festival from Coachella to Hard Summer in America, Sonar and Creamfields in Europe, Parklife in Australia and Ultra Brazil all while bridging the gap between hip hop and electronic music. His groundbreaking label Fool’s Gold has had its biggest year to date, opening their own flagship store in Brooklyn over the summer and online store last month. A-Trak is set to perform at Madison Square Garden with fellow Grammy nominees Swedish House Mafia on December 16th.

Duck Sauce is currently preparing the release of their first full-length album in 2012!!!
