I do not religiously sync my music to my iPhone or iPod shuffle…usually this happens before I go on a trip. I updated it shortly before leaving for Orlando with the most current dance tunes that I knew were going to be played and were going to be our weekend anthems. Three of the songs I used on the video slideshow I made HERE. I rarely listen to original versions of tracks and usually search for remixes done by my favourites such as Digital Dog, Tony Moran, Abel, Jason Nevins, Soulseekerz, Ralphi Rosario, Rauhofer, DJ Escape, Karmatronic, Dave Aude, Offer Nissim, Deadmau5 to name a few.
So what 10 tracks currently live in my iPod?
Kelly Rowland – When Love Takes Over (Abel Ramos Paris with Love Remix)
Finally Kelly Rowland came out with a real hit! Too bad that it took a collaboration with David Guetta to get there. If you’re trying to figure out what song this samples….it’s Coldplay’s “Clocks”. B-rilliant!
Deborah Cox – Beautiful U R (Yinon Yahel Club Mix)
Love me some Deborah….remember her hits back in the day such as “Nobody’s Supposed to be here”, “Absolutely Not” & “It’s Over Now”? This DIVA is the original artist that’s been remixed to death. Yet again…another amazing of her otherwise slow and sappy song.
Kerli – Walking on Air (Raphi Rosario & Craig J Mix)
Ralphi Rosario has got to be one of my favourite DJ/Producers of all time. The quality of his remixes are phenomenal…making any mediocre track into an instant hit. I first noticed him back when he remixed Nelly Furtado’s “Promiscuous Girl”.
Kat DeLuna – Unstoppable (Alexander Club Mix)
Remember her track “Whine Up”? This song sounds like it should have been sang by Kelis because of it’s hard edge vocals…even the video looks like it should be Kelis. The music video reminds me of recycled vintage Rihanna/Pussycatdolls videos. Not big on the original version but love this remix!
Katy Perry – Waking Up In Vegas (Manhattan Clique Bellagio Remix)
Who doesn’t love Katy Perry? She’s like Lady Gaga who just can’t do no wrong. Every song is an instant hit! I’ve woken up in Vegas at least a couple of times and it’s not always pretty.
Livvi Franc – Now I’m That Bitch (Kaskade Extended Mix)
We’ve all felt like this at some point. The person we had a crush on in highschool never used to pay attention to us or even knew we existed until years later. Revenge is sweet ;)
The Veronicas – Untouched (Eddie Amador Remix)
I first heard and fell in love with this track on SYTYCD Canada (So You Think You Can Dance) when Kaitlyn and Izaak did a Jive routine to this song.
Flo-Rida – Sugar (Mondotek Remix)
Another track that uses a sample of an older song….you’re right! It’s Eiffel 65’s “I’m Blue”. The Hills is great for featuring the latest up and coming tracks and I heard this in one of the episodes from this past season.
Offer Nissim & Maya – Hook Up (Yinon Yahel Remix)
Offer Nissim is one of the most sought after DJ/Producers right now and he does phenomenal remixes and produces his own tracks with his favourite vocalist Maya. This was a popular track during Orlando’s One Mighty Weekend party.
Kelly Clarkson – I Do Not Hook Up (Bimbo Jones Remix)
I gotta say…I wasn’t a big fan of Kelly’s performance at last week’s MMVAs. She looked like she just stopped trying or caring for that matter. She appeared to have just crawled out of bed, put on a bandanna as a top, the inseam on her jeans were easily 6″ too long and she was barefoot as she was performing her hit “My Life Would Suck Without You”.
I do like this new track of hers and of course a Bimbo Jones Remix at that! Love!
