Bear In Heaven on Tour Now

Bear In Heaven are tearing it up one last time for 2010.  If you haven't seen them yet, this is a show that needs to be experienced.  Joining them along the way for their last US tour for the year, are Lower Dens, Twin Shadow, Sun Airway and Cloudland Canyon.  And just for fun the band have released yet another stellar remix, this time coming from UK band Tropics for the standout track "You Do You."

“Sometimes somebody will come along and amaze you, Tropics amazed us," said Bear In Heaven's Jon Philpot. "They opened up our song “You Do You” like the retractable roof of an arena. It’s slow and bumping. It’s kinda like Phil Collins."

Bear In Heaven's double LP Beast Rest Forth Mouth and special remix LP featuring The Field, Studio, High Places, Justin K. Broadrick (a.k.a. Jesu), & More is available now through Hometapes.

The remix LP has already recieved RAVE reviews in the UK, with the BBC calling it an "absorbing reinvention". In a time where remixes are as common as singles themselves, this is a band who have crafted their already dynamic sound and taken it to an exciting new level.

The Crystal Method EP 'Sine Language'/Tour Dates

America’s top electronic act THE CRYSTAL METHOD has announced the release of their latest project: the SINE LANGUAGE EP out November 16 via the duo’s own imprint Tiny E Records.  The duo—Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland—will also make a few DJ appearances this month including the Hollywood club night Control at Avalon in Los Angeles on Friday, November 19.

“Sine Language” is the third single off of THE CRYSTAL METHOD’s Grammy-nominated album Divided By Night (2009). This time out, the platinum-selling act is joined by LMFAO, another rowdy twosome. LMFAO’s party-starting raps are accompanied by a single edit and seven brand new remixes, including reworked versions by Richard Vission, Future Funk Squad, Moonbeam, Datsik, Metasyn, Omega and Von Ukuf.

LMFAO burst on to the scene with the ubiquitous party anthem of summer 2009, “I’m in Miami Bitch.” That successful single was followed by two others that also cracked the Billboard 100 and a debut album that quickly cemented the duo’s fun-loving reputation. Collaborations with David Guetta, Fergie, Chuckie, and Lil Jon--plus remixes for Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Katy Perry, among others-- have served to keep LMFAO in the spotlight.

Grammy-nominated producer Richard Vission possesses more Billboard #1 dance hits than even he can keep track of. Currently riding high with the worldwide smash hit “I Like That,” he’s cracking the U.S. Top 40 and going double platinum in Australia. All in a day’s work for the man who counts performing onstage alongside Madonna as just one of his many career highlights.  Here he turns in yet another future classic club banger with his re-working of “Sine Language.”

Other highlights on the EP include Datsik’s remix.  A producer who has been taking the dubstep scene by storm, Datsik is blowing up dance floors around the globe with his original style of hip-hop future-tech bangers. In 2009 alone, Datsik had over seven number one releases on Beatport.  Other remix credits to his name include works for the Freestylers, Bassnectar, Noisia, Diplo, the Wu-tang Clan and Apex from the critically acclaimed Lifted Music label.  THE CRYSTAL METHOD fans will also get a taste of production from Metasyn, DJ Rap’s new drum n’ bass project.

The Crystal Method’s Divided By Night world tour has seen them command stages at festivals from Coachella and Bonnaroo to Ultra Music and Voodoo Experience. They’ve played to wildly dancing crowds from Austin and Kansas City to further flung locales like Grand Canary Islands and Dubai. In support of “Sine Language,” other confirmed DJ gigs for the remainder of 2010 include clubs in Reno, Missoula, Halifax, Jackson, Detroit and NYC.

Tracklisting for SINE LANGUAGE EP:

1.      Sine Language (Single Edit)

2.      Sine Language (Richard Vission Solmatic Remix)

3.      Sine Language (Future Funk Squad Remix)

Yoko Ono To Release "Wouldnit (I'm A Star)" The Remixes

Just in time for the balmy, dog days of summer, YOKO ONO delivers another sweltering dancefloor juggernaut with the release of “WOULDNIT” (I’M A STAR). The explosive single finds the avant-garde pioneer, once again, holding sway with discerning DJs, clubbers and tastemakers worldwide who’ve propelled her to the top of Billboard’s club charts nestled comfortably alongside mainstream and electronic pop heavyweights like LADY GAGA, KATY PERRY, RIHANNA, KYLIE MINOGUE, SCISSOR SISTERS, KE$HA, TAIO CRUZ and GOLDFRAPP.

“WOULDNIT” (I’M A STAR) is the latest release from ONO’s acclaimed remix series, which has paired the iconoclast with an impressive cast of innovative collaborators (FLAMING LIPS, ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS, PET SHOP BOYS, BASEMENT JAXX, SPARKS, PEACHES, CSS, and Oscar winning composer CRAIG ARMSTRONG) and spawned 6 #1 dance singles to date including “GIVE ME SOMETHING”, “I’M NOT GETTING ENOUGH”, “GIVE PEACE A CHANCE”, “NO NO NO”, “EVERYMAN / EVERYWOMAN” and the seminal “WALKING ON THIN ICE”.

“WOULDNIT” (I’M A STAR) has been blazing up the BILLBOARD HOT DANCE CLUB PLAY CHART since its debut five weeks ago entering at #32* with a bullet (Issue Date: 08/07/2010). It quickly ascended to the #24 power pick (Issue Date: 08/14/2010), and is currently in the Top Ten at #8* with a bullet (Issue Date: 09/04/2010)!

Originally appearing in 2 different settings, one on YOKO’s LP BLUEPRINT FOR A SUNRISE and the other on her IMA collaboration RISING, the bluesy reflection has been retooled into a surging motivational anthem for anyone with the courage and conviction to re-make themselves, follow their dreams and aspire to greatness regardless of obstacles.

It’s classic ONO: unfettered and defiant.

Featuring potent, modern reinventions from established dance music stalwarts DAVE AUDE, RICHARD MOREL, RALPHI ROSARIO and leftfield, New York techno / house producer ROB RIVES (aka FLOPPY SOUNDS / PHANTOM POWER), along with newcomers DJ YIANNIS, DENNY TSETTOS, EMJAE (aka MATTHEW JOHNSON of Boston-based duo, NIGHTRIDERS), M-DEEP and TIMMY LOOP, the single is a tour-de-force and easily one of ONO’s most immediate remix offerings to date.

It’s unbelievable that at 77 years young, the alt-rock matriarch is as inventive and prolific as ever.  Nearly 5 decades since first bursting onto the unsuspecting art and music worlds with her forward-thinking works, Yoko continues to evolve and thrive – both inside and outside the margins – still dreaming, pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo with her own unique and uncompromising artistic vision.

It’s been quite a storied journey with many more exciting moves to unfold.

“WOULDNIT (I’M A STAR)” will be released later this month as a digital green release (no materials used or abused) on MIND TRAIN / TWISTED Records.

Groove Armada announces Tour Dates

Andy Cato and Tom Findlay, better known as Groove Armada, have announced a spring U.S. tour in support of Black Light, their sixth studio album releasing March 2 on Om Records. The tour will find them dropping by the U.S. for multiple dates in New York, California, and Florida, including appearances on Morning Becomes Electric and at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. The highly anticipated Black Light sees the duo stepping in bold new directions and featuring an impressive list of guest artists, including silky smooth guest vocals from Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry on the single “Shameless,” vocal turns from Kate Bush-evoking chanteuse SaintSaviour, and appearances on several tracks from Nick Littlemore of the Aussie electronic sensation Empire of the Sun.

Prolific remixer Classixx has produced a light and playful remix of Black Light highlight "Paper Romance," replacing the hard four-to-the-floor of the original track with bubbling synths, softly skittering drums, and delicate, swooning guitars that bring out the passionate vocal takes from SaintSavior and Fenech-Soler.  Download the remix here, and feel free to post and share!  In addition to Classixx, several tracks from the album have already been remixed by other such luminaries as Mock & Toof, Bloody Beetroots, and more, all currently available on iTunes. Keep an eye out for a remix from the always fun Dan Deacon!

In case you missed them the first time around, don’t forget to catch the videos for singles I Won’t Kneel, and Paper Romance here!  Don’t miss your chance to see this legendary duo live when they stop by the U.S. this spring!

Winning Remixes Chosen In TIËSTO’S First-Ever Remix Contest

Tiësto’s first-ever foray into developing budding new talent has been a smash success: the world’s biggest DJ and critically acclaimed producer has selected the winner of his first-ever remix contest, held this fall in conjunction with Beatport, the industry leader in electronic music downloads. The winning remix of “Knock You Out” featuring vocalist/keyboardist Emily Haines of electro-influenced indie rock band Metric was created by San Francisco-based DJ and remixer Ken Loi.

This is the first time ever that Tiësto has not only made his original music stems available to the public, but also given aspiring artists a chance for their own big break. As grand prize winner, Loi wins a $250 Beatport gift card, Tiësto merchandise, and prize packs from Ultra and [PIAS], but more importantly also receives the opportunity to have his remix released commercially by Ultra and [PIAS], scheduled for early 2010.

The contest was so successful that four additional remixes have been selected for release  along with Loi’s, including remixes from Mexican electro producer/DJ Keemerah, San Jose’s 3BrosElectro, and Queens-based Mysto & Pizzi, and a downtempo remix by composer/producer Owen Westlake of South East England. Mysto & Pizzi are perhaps best known as the production team behind the remake of “Somebody’s Watching Me” as heard in several of Geico’s “Kash” TV commercials.

“We are so happy to have used Beatport as a platform to discover such exciting new talent, and Tiësto was the perfect partner for a remix contest. We can’t wait to give these remixes some broader exposure,” commented Beatport Vice President of Marketing, Shawn Sabo.

The contest launched concurrently with the exclusive release of “Knock You Out” on Beatport earlier this fall, giving remixers one week to download the stems and start working on their contest submissions (and sending the vocal part to #1 on Beatport). For two weeks starting October 6, contestants uploaded their remixes, in many different styles and genres, to www.beatportal.com/remix, where fans and other contestants listened to all the entries. The public voted for their favorite remixes for two weeks through November 3, 2009, narrowing the contestants down to 20 finalists, from which Tiësto, Ultra and [PIAS] selected the winner.

After a run of four top-selling electronic artist albums, Tiësto’s Kaleidoscope is an artist album in the truest sense: a stunning collection of songs written and recorded in collaboration with a variety of music talents from the worlds of dance, pop and rock: Jónsi Birgisson from Sigur Rós, Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, Nelly Furtado, Calvin Harris, and Emily Haines from Metric, to name a few. Having made the DJ performance an artform, Tiësto has now made the dance album an artform. The release of Kaleidoscope earlier this fall has been supported by a worldwide tour in 2009-2010, spanning five continents on over 175 dates.

The winning remixes of “Knock You Out” will be released commercially by Ultra/[PIAS] in early 2010 and will be available at Beatport, the Ultra Store (store.ultrarecords.com), and all other digital music retailers.

Yoko Ono's Remix of 'Give Peace a Chance'

Yoko Ono- for the Grateful Web

Following the milestone success of her two consecutive #1 Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart singles "NO, NO, NO" (THE REMIXES) and "GIVE PEACE A CHANCE" (THE REMIXES), seminal pop culture icon YOKO ONO closes 2008 as Billboard's #4 Hot Dance Club Play Artist of the Year. Her chart-topping remix singles (both issued on MINDTRAIN/TWISTED Records) seized the #4 ("No, No, No") and #20 ("Give Peace A Chance") spot, respectively, on Billboard's 2008 Year End Top 50 Hot Dance Club Play Tracks.

With another successful year under her belt, ONO kicks off 2009 with the long-awaited digital release of "GIVE PEACE A CHANCE" (THE INTERNATIONAL REMIXES) - the final installment of the avant-garde visionary's series of three digital-only, environmentally-friendly "green" remix singles.  Available February 18th on MINDTRAIN/TWISTED Records (Yoko's birthday!), the potent set includes electrifying reworks of the landmark world peace anthem which has been re-recorded by the tireless humanitarian as an uplifting poetic narrative resonating with a sense of urgency and optimism.

Speaking to today's worldwide tumultuous political, social and environmental climate, ONO transforms the timeless rallying cry into a galvanizing and timely global message of hope, inspiration and limitless possibilities in a time of change.

The poignant and evocative collection features a diverse assemblage of, established and emerging, international dance/electronic music innovators such as CSS (BRAZIL), KARSH KALE (INDIA), TSZPUN (CHINA), KIMBAR (RUSSIA),  DEATH IN VEGAS' RICHARD FEARLESS (ENGLAND), DJ MEME (BRAZIL), BLOW UP (ITALY), ALEX SANTER (GREECE), and FINDO GASK (SCOTLAND).
