So today I’ve got one of the filthiest, heaviest tracks I’ve heard in awhile. It’s one of the most brutal electro house remixes by Brazillian Darth and Vader. They decided to remix Afrojack & R3hab’s already heavy anthem Prutataaa. It sounds similar to the original, then crushes sooo hard. I also included the original to check out. Both of these tracks are for sale only, so if you dig them support the artist and pick em up. Don’t worry I’ve got a ton of free goodies coming your way. Turn up the bass, enjoy!

Afrojack and Steve Aoki (Feat. Miss Palmer) – No Beef (Rockwell Remix) : Super Hard Hitting House RemixPosted in Bangin by sage | Tags: Afrojack, Bangin, Electronic, House, Remix, Rockwell, Steve Aoki
No Beef was a crazy collaboration between Afrojack and Steve Aoki that had the signature lead that defines Afrojack and the great party feel that Aoki is so good at captivating in all of his singles. The rockwell remix takes all the best parts of this song and adds a huge side chain compressed bassline. To listen this song on small speakers would be a crime. What I like about the bass line is that even though its huge, its not super chopped up or crazy. The whole song progresses smoothly and is perfect for a Party or Club. Turn it up all the way and Enjoy!
Afrojack makes some seriously massive music, and this is no exception. Today I’ve got the latest track that is sure to be a massive worldwide anthem. It’s called Lionheart, which fits the agressive lion like qualities of this song. The bass and synths throughout get you lost in a world of smooth house and chaotic electro. Turn up the bass and let this track blast. Enjoy!

Today I have great remix of a track by two massive producers. David Guetta and Afrojack have remixed each other before like, in the sick house song; David Guetta Feat. Nicki Minaj & Flo Rida – Where Dem Girls At (Afrojack Remix). Leo Villagra takes the original, which blends both the styles of David Guetta and Afrojack and adds plenty of his own flavor. The remix is a Dirty House version that is very up-beat and dancable. The song is very unique from the orignal and the big lead synth gives it a great style of its own. Turn up the speakers and enjoy!
Today I’ve got a real sick high energy remix to the now hit ‘Give Me Everything’ by Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer. This remix starts sounding pretty similiar to the original, then gets some added kicks, then the party starts at about 1:15 with a huge bass drop that you can’t help but move to. I love when someone can take a radio hit and make it into a full one club BANGER, and this is what Bingo Players did here. Check ou this track, turn it up, enjoy!

Lazerdisk Party Sex, the Burlington based electro duo is back with another really sick new remix. They brought you the really sick remix to Dirty Talk by Wynter Gordon. This remix has got it all, and goes all over the place. It’s got a lot of energy, bass, funkiness, and just the right amount of the original. I definitely have liked some Lazerdisk, but this track might be my favorite. Turn up the bass, get wild, enjoy!
David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj & Flo Rida – Where Dem Girls At (Afrojack Remix) : Sick New House RemixPosted in Bangin by nick | Tags: Afrojack, BANGER, Electro, Electronic, Flo Rida, House, Nicki Minaj, Remix
David Guetta has teamed up with Flo Rida and Nick Minaj for a new dance anthem, and Afrojack has made it even better. He took the new track ‘Where Dem Girls At’ and made it an epic dance track made to be blasted at a packed club like his anthem Replica. The song’s got a great smooth feel and some real epic drops that never get too intense. Not the biggest fan of Flo Rida or Nicki Minaj but the vocals are used very well. This is just another great example of Afrojack making great dance music. Turn up the bass and enjoy!

Akon continues to work with some of the hottest house/electro producers in the game right now, with this latest track ‘Love Handles’ being produced by David Guetta and Afrojack. With a combo like that you know it’s gonna be a hit, it’s the perfect new party track. Akon is pretty hit or miss with me these days, but with David Guett and Afrojack backing this one, it certainly makes it a quality track, despite the absolutely ridiculous lyrics haha. I’m trying to keep a variety of more house/electro tracks for all you guys who don’t like to party to dubstep.. yet haha. Turn up the bass for this one and enjoy!
