“RAPTURE” (Aviici Mix) NADIA ALI
Aviici exploded onto the scene with his huge reworking of the Etta James classic, Got A Feeling. He’s teamed up with Nadia Ali, a Pakastani dance music queen for a new version of her 2010 smash, Rapture. The 2013 version maintains the power of the original but energizes the beats. You can feel Aviici’s style all over the track. By the way guys, even if you hate the song, Nadia is in a black leather catsuit for half the video 🙂
“THIS IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE” ARMIN VAN BUUREN Feat TREVOR GUTHRIE
Electronic Dance Music (EDM) has often a cold, nonhuman feel as sampled House beats and DJ’s create an otherworldly experience. But it takes true talent to inject some humanity into the dance beats. From Armin Van Buuren’s new CD, Intense, set to release the first week of May, the lead single, This Is What It Feels Like, makes you feel vibrant and alive. The accompanying video matches the feel-good vibe. Look out for the girl standing up in the convertible as it cruises in the desert and a cameo by porn star Ron Jeremy.
“IF I LOSE MYSELF TONIGHT” OneRepublic VS ALESSO
2012 was the year that Alesso became a force in the Electronic Dance Music scene. Only fitting, he joins up with pop radio’s OneRepublic for a dance version of their recent Top 10 Billboard hit, If I Lose Myself Tonight. Once again the song’s emotional impact is still clearly there but the song is improved by the inclusion of a catchier, more dynamic mix of the music. Ryan Tedder + Alesso = sounds like a great mix of talent!
