Well the best song ever has officially received the remix treatment! It’s a cuhrazy club-banging masterpiece. Could you even expect anything less from a Benny Benassi/Katy Perry combo? Don’t say no to that.

MUSIC VIDEO: “E.T.” – Katy Perry Feat. Kanye West

Now that’s some effing POP CULTURE!!! Wow! I actually love this! Katy Perry could probably slaughter the Jonas Brothers at this point and I’d still love her, but wow! This is a beyond over the top, extravagant display of pop culture. Pop has always involved that strange sense of futurism (“Oops I Did It Again” anyone?) and this just nailed it on the head. The colors are beautiful (pink and purple, Jillboard colors!), the effects rule… The Katy-Perry-alien-embodiment is a little bit frightening, but I can forgive her. There’s also this one really quick scene of animals having sex if you look closely – I guess it’s part of the “art” of it all. The end confuses me a bit, I don’t want to give it away so just watch it. You’ll be weirded out and confused. But I love this supernatural, extraterrestrial stuff SO much. Major two thumbs up from me. If I had more thumbs, they’d be up too. I hate the word “props” but I’ll give them to Katy. Abduct me, Katy!

P.S. – Where can pop music even go now? We have Little Monsters, Barbies, Animals, Aliens… What’s next!? Plant life?

“E.T. (Official Remix)” – Katy Perry Feat. Tinie Tempah

Siiiiick! “E.T.” is my favorite song on Katy’s newest album, Teenage Dream. This verse from Tinie only makes this song that much cooler. “E.T.” is a different sound from Katy, but I am absolutely smitten with it. It’s been my “jam” for awhile and it’s probs gonna be my “jam” for much longer. Tinie is super cool too. He has an almost Lil’ Wayne-y flow on this song. I’m not complaining..

“Teenage Dream” – (Click to DL)

I’m SO SICK of “Teenage Dream”, damnit! Upon seeing the title, I was all..NO. But knowing it was by Loggy, who I am a fan of, I was all…Ok fine. It didn’t take much listening to realize that I liked it. Just goes to show you, you can’t judge a song by its title. Make sure you turn up your speakers for this 8-bit/bass-ey/hip-hop jam, it’s niiiice. It makes “Teenage Dream” cool again (not that it stopped being cool, but you know…)

“Firework (Jump Smokers Remix)” – (Click to DL)

I am IN LOVE with “Firework” by Katy Perry. I do not see myself getting sick of it any time soon. The Jump Smokers, one of my favorite DJs, remixed my current favorite song and made it an amazing banger.  They took this song from inspirational pop tune to bass-heavy rage machine. Yea, that good. You really MUST listen to this.  Thanks to 92.3 NOW’s Saturday Night Dance Factory for this one. Their mixshows are really good…

Introducing: Sam Tsui

“Just A Dream” (Click to DL)

“Firework Vs. Grenade Mashup” (Click to DL)

You’ve probably heard of fast-growing YouTube sensation, Sam Tsui.  I’ve heard his stuff before but never liked his covers. Finally I found something I can appreciate. He has an incredible voice and is clearly a talented musician. The only complaint I have is…relax on the dramatics! Your voice and style will carry you, no need for the extreme dramatization and cheesy facial expressions. Don’t get me wrong, you totally need to express yourself, but I just feel like this one is a bit forced. Just let it fuhlowwwwwwww duudeee. Anyway here’s two great Sam Tsui covers over current Top 40 hits. “Just A Dream” blows my mind. It features Christina Grimmie, who also has stunning vocals. Bam! Can’t wait to see some originals from Sam.

P.S. If I hear one more “Dynamite” cover….. lord.

“Teenage Dream (Remix)” (Click to DL)

Cory Grindberg, 20-year-old producer from Minneapolis, created a super cool remix of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”.  It’s a slowed down, chill, synthy remix.  There’s a nice change-up around the 2:44 mark, guess you’ll just have to listen to know what I’m talking about! Cory is a part of the production crew Audio Perm, and is just starting to get his name heard, so spread that word people!
