DJ Jeremiah Red of KROQ premieres guest mix by Dan Sena

Tim Gauthier

Earlier this morning the infamous Bean, of the Kevin & Bean morning show announced the premiere of Dan Sena’s guestmix on Kroq’s website. Needless to say, for all you fans of the morning show, I’m sure you can share in our excitement;

“Its been about 5 or 6 years since I was standing in line for Banana Split Sundays at LAX or Dim Mak Tuesdays at Cinespace to catch a Steve Aoki or DJ AM Set. These partys had a roster of the biggest names in EDM throwing down records for a 100 person room packed wall to wall. One of my favorite and most talented artists I became a fan of during the era was DJ/Producer Dan Sena.

When I was told that we got Dan to do a mix for Soundwaves & Crossfades, I was stoked!” ~DJ Jeremiah Red

Bloody Beetroots and Etienne De Crecy featured in Valentino Rossi x Monster Energy promo

Tim Gauthier

MotoGP World Champion driver, Valentino Rossi and the always-viral Monster Energy teemed up to premiere a 3-car team which featured their all-new WRC Ford Fiesta at the 2011 Monza Rally Show.

“Valentino Rossi and Monster Energy put together a 3 car team and partnered up to shoot VR’s exploits at the wheel of a WRC Fiesta for the 2011 edition of the Monza Rally Show. The MotoGP GOAT doesn’t get a load of time to throw a rally car round with a co-driver barking out calls but let’s face it, he’s got a knack of being super fast on in any kind of race format. Over the course of the weekend, Valentino come a close second (in 2 race formats) to multiple WRC champ Seb Loeb and even beat the ace in the 2 stages he topped. Behind him sat last year’s winner Dindo Capello and WRC great Dani Sordo.”

Within this viral campaign, Monster Energy scored the video with two of our very own artists- Bloody Beetroots and Etienne De Crecy, featuring tracks ‘Rombo’ and ‘Welcome’.

Felix Cartal – “Don’t Turn On The Lights”
Release Date: December 13th, 2011
 
Felix is out with a club-thumping new track that features vocals from Polina, a singer who has collaborated with both Steve Aoki and Kaskade in the past. The video is out on December 13th, making its debut on MTV, and the slew of MTV’s promotional divisions.

The single is the first from the electronic DJ/producer’s upcoming album, ‘Different Faces’ – one that he says is meant to showcase a brand new sound and direction that the performer intends to take.

“Felix Cartal is part of a new breed of young producers taking elements of his contemporaries and making a massive sound.”
~Steve Aoki

MTV News had the chance to talk to Felix about the song that he thinks is one of “catchiest” he’s ever done.

“The first single ‘Don’t Turn On The Lights’ is a chance for me to try some more memorable melodies. I really wanted to create something that people could hum along to, something that they would recognize instantly, but still with powerful, hard-hitting production behind it. Polina’s vocals really helped bring this song together to make it one of the catchiest songs I feel that I’ve ever produced.”

Check out the exclusive first-look at the video, and check back on December 13th for the full premiere, and release of the single on Beatport & iTunes.

Steve Aoki – “Ladi Dadi (Part II) feat. Wynter Gordon”
Release Date: December 13th, 2011
 

Just in time to spice up any holiday party, Ultra Music in conjunction with Dim Mak will unleash today, Tuesday, December 13, “Ladi Dadi (Part II)” from STEVE AOKI featuring Wynter Gordon. This club dub remix is the prequel to “Ladi Dadi,” an original track from AOKI’s WONDERLAND album due out January 10th.

Featuring the vocals of American pop-dance singer/songwriter Wynter Gordon, “Ladi Dadi (Part II)” is a blazing dance floor track. Says AOKI, “This is the club version of my single ‘Ladi Dadi’ featuring Wynter Gordon. I wrote a whole new dubstep drop that is dirty and simply nutty. Starts off with the four on the floor leading you into the heavy bass chorus then right into the vocal hook and does it all over again. ‘Ladi Dadi (Part II)’ is one of my secret weapons in the past months. Hope you love it!”

Look for the album version of “Ladi Dadi” to be released as a single in early 2012.

“A slow nostalgic melody develops into a frantic syth solo from the future. One of the notes transforms into spaceship and takes off towards the stars! The tension builds and builds as it gets jolted around and burnt up by the atmosphere but then triumphantly makes it out and blasts away into the galaxy!” ~ Zeds Dead
