Miike Snow – Animal

Recently formed in 2007, Miike Snow is a Swedish band that has slowly been gaining popularity. This single, Animal, was recently featured on Gossip Girl. It’s a laid back indie pop track that’s sure to make everyone out there who likes something a little funky (eh ehm Nick) very happy. Not to mention it’s a catchy tune that really grows on you. Listen to it once and I assure you, you’ll be humming it soon enough.

The Dream vs Lights – Walkin’ on the Moon (Drive my Soul Remix)

Meet Lights, an up and coming indie artist from Canada. Relatively unknown in the States, she’s rising to fame internationally. Not to mention, she’s absolutely gorgeous. She’s also a complete nerd, actually updating her video blog through WOW and has some fuckin awesome tattoos.

Her song “Drive my Soul” (Victor Rusin Remix), is mashedup with the classic “Walkin’ on the Moon” by The Dream feat. Kanye West.

This song has a nice mellow house sound coupled with The Dream’s recognizable R&B style, and Kanye’s rhyming. The mashup was done by flipboitamidles, he’s done an excellent job, and more of his tracks can be found on his blog. It’s an awesome track, probably my favorite of everything I’ve posted so far. Enjoy.

Deadmau5 – Ghosts ‘N’ Stuff (Rob Swire Vocal Edit)

Deadmau5 is an well-known electronic/house music artist. He’s pretty new, and has only gained fame in the past few years. His classic Ghosts ‘N’ Stuff became incredibly famous, and almost single-handedly launched him into the house music mainstream. This new song, an edit done by Rob Swire (from the Drum & Bass group Pendulum), will be featured on Deadmau5’s newest album “For Lack of a Better Name”. The song is pretty sick, a vocal edit of the classic. I’ve provided links for both the original and the edit.
