Download FineTuned – Afterhours In The Devil’s Den

Excuse me while I blow the dust off this blog and prep you all for the triumphant return of Fine Tuned!  A lot has changed in my absence over the past few months – DJ sets are now in the works, Al Gore found footprints of ManBearPig (so he says), and corpses of Pompeii have risen from the dead to protest the 1% of museum artifacts having all the wealth.  Well, DJ sets at least.

I’m going to be migrating this site over to its own domain and ramping up the layout so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I figured it was time for me to put out a recording.  So here’s a little mashup I snipped from my live set.  The Devil’s Den, mau5ified and breakbeat’d for a pinch extra rage. Skrillmau5 FTW

Rage on, Ravemasters.


Dada Life – Kick Out The Epic Motherf**ker

Posted in Electro, House with tags , on December 6, 2011 by dissonantcognitions

Dada Life

Annd we’re back with more killer beats to melt your face off.  That being said, please give me a moment to collect my features off the floor from this massive electro house thumper.  I was never a huge Dada Life fan, but this bass-ripping ensemble completely converted me.  Rocking a deep electro feel, this will certainly move the floor from under your feet.  This marks yet another occasion I had a full subwoofer in my car.  I need to invest.

Kill The Noise (Alvin Risk Remix)

Alvin Risk

For the third and final installment of the “Alvin Risk kicks ass series” this week, I bring you a deep, electro-house remix that will beat you below sea level.  Remixing fellow OWSLA steppers, Kill The Noise, Alvin Risk brings back a new take on deep house with a few signature electro elements you’ve come to expect from the rapidly rising producer.  This one is much deeper in attitude that the past two tracks of his I’ve shared this past week, but shows one hell of a range in sound.  Keep em comin’ Alvin.

Katy Perry – The One That Got Away (R3hab Remix)

Katy Perry Remixes

Alright, this one had to be posted.  Even though it only came out a little over a day ago, there’s a solid chance that you may have already had the pleasure of hearing this new pop-electro banger from the mixmaster, R3hab.  Not quite as epic as his remix of “We Found Love” in my opinion, but still an amazing spin on a new pop hit.  In case you haven’t heard, R3hab has been tearing it up at a few sets of the Dayglow Blu tour.  To all you who have had the pleasure to see this live, I envy you.  At the rate he’s been releasing tracks I’m sure there’s another one on the way soon.  Be on the lookout!

Bump of the Day – Marcus Schossow – Snare

Posted in Bump of the Day, Trance with tags , on November 14, 2011 by dissonantcognitions


If the waveform doesn’t say it all, there are no dead points in this euro-style hard trance spectacular.  Martin Schossow takes us back to an old-school feel to a sound of “club” long-lost to cliché hip hop and pop-house.  “Snare” packs a full-throttle underground trance/rave flow that hits harder than you would expect by fusing in some electro and distorted vocal elements.  Time to bring the entrancement back to the dance floor.

Chant of Victory – F*** YOU I’M NOT FAMOUS

Chant of Victory

Wawaweewa! I can’t use the word “massive” enough to describe this killer compilation of quite possible every single one of my favorite jams from the past two years.  Skrillex, Deadmau5, and more are all rolled together in this giant ball of kinetic energy designed to move you in ways you never thought possible.  Transitioning from sped-up dubstep, to electro, to floor-bumping deep house, this mix is a 45 minute snippet of the best night of your life.  Enjoy the ear sweets.

Richie Arci – LoveSong

I saw this in my inbox and couldn’t pass up listening to a cover of my favorite song from The Cure.  While a very (I mean very) different adaptation of the song, it’s a very listenable and smooth rendition of the 1980s legend’s immortal hit.  Essentially all the elements of electropop vocals are here, along with some trance-synths and a danceable beat.  Though it mat be a very far cry from The Cure’s style, this one will bring a modernized smile to fans with open arms.  Also check out the bumpin’ Electro Club edit.
