Crizzly’s Remix of Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Thrift Shop, you heard of it? I know you have. Its this year's unlikely chart topper, hitting #1 on Billboard a few weeks back and still holding the #1 or #2 position depending on what chart you look at. Also, their newer song, "Can't Hold Us", is flying up the charts and is currently also holding a #1 or #2 position depending on the chart you are looking at. Anyhow, Lets talk Crizzly, if you dont know, its time to know him. He is an amazing artist and this remix is good. There is a saying "Crizzly fixed it", this song didn't really need fixing (aside from the over exposure), but this remix is good and will breath a bit of life back into the song for any DJ that is completely sick of it. One question, where is the music video version!? That would be cool.


If you click to soundcloud and click download, itll take you to Crizzly's fb page for a free download (or just click that link).

Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” is Now Available!

The album will drop on May 21st, but you can get the new song right now on iTunes, click to go there! This song is going the be the song of the summer! Get it now and be the first to pay it this weekend at the clubs. This album is going to be big too, but this song is infectious. The track was leaked around the internet a couple days ago, people were on the fence left wondering if it was the real thing or not. If it wasnt real, it was close. But now you can get it officially. This song will get into your mind, body, and soul. Singing on the track is Pharell Williams, on guitar is the amazing Nile Rodgers, and of course the robots (Daft Punk).

Daft Punk “Random Access Memory” – The Collaborators: Giorgio Moroder

When was the last time you were actually excited about a release of a full length album? I can't remember the last time for myself. This time, its Ramdom Access Memory by Daft Punk. I have a feeling that this album is going to be epic and have TONS of great dance tracks on it. The album cover is great, with the Thriller-like cursive writing and the robot heads! Judging an album by its cover is okay by me in this case. So, we are here to talk about The Collaborators. The Collaborators is a video series that talks with the people that made Daft Punk's new album possible. This is Episode 1 with Giorgio Moroder. Its great! Watch it more than once! Click through for the album cover and more links to this amazing new album. I cant wait to hear it!

Everything is a Remix Project comes to a conclusion, Watch parts 1 – 4 here

Back in September of 2010, Kirby Ferguson brought us the first of 4 parts to "Everything is a Remix", a video project that explores remixing through all media and the copyright laws that have evolved around this phenomenon. Here, you can watch all 4 parts after the jump. Its very interesting to see all of the different places people have drawn inspiration from or "stolen" from, as it is today. Copyright law needs to be revised! But in the spirit of remixing and reusing other people's materials, I give you "Everything is a Remix" Parts 1 through 4. Click through to view:

Serato Video SL, now on sale! (video examples)

Not the biggest of news, but it is noteworthy. If you have ever  wanted to expand your mixing abilities to video, this is a great chance. Right now, Video SL, the plugin for Serato Scratch Live that allows you to play  video files, is on sale for $99! That is half off the normal price of $199. Buy it from Serato. It is a great plugin and even if you don't use videos while you are mixing, it allows you to use MP4s (or other video files) like MP3s. Otherwise they wont even show up in your music library (however that might have been an old problem, but they wont play without the plugin). If you are on the fence, get off the fence and buy yourself a gift! Click through for some videos of some great usus of Video SL.
