|Kaskade Live @ Identity Festival, Mansfield, MA 8.20.2011|
This week I bring you some random goodies, both old and new. I start off with a track Kaskade has been playing at these ID Festival shows, which is a mash-up of Marco V vs. Kaskade vs. Tiesto, Hardwell, & EDX. It's got a great drop and some uplifting vocals and takes everything good from these 3 songs.

Next up is R3HAB's collaboration with Afrojack called Prutataaa. This has been a song heavy in DJ sets, probably because of the vocals at the end. R3HAB is on Afrojack's Wall Recordings and is definitely an up-and-coming star in the world of EDM.

The next two tracks are oldies but goodies. The first is a track by the awesome Australian duo Vandalism, who have done remixes of Claude Von Stroke's "The Whistler" and Dennis Ferrer's "Hey Hey". I discovered this song on the compilation Clubbers Guide to 2009 when I was in Australia and it remained one of my favorite songs, because I was new to the whole EDM scene at that point. It's got a nice Latin vibe and some Justin Timberlake-esque lyrics to go with it.
Finally I had to throw in the Madeon remix of Pendulum's "The Island". Yes, this is another oldie but goodie and I guarantee either you've never heard it or you never give it the attention it deserves. It's a lot more funky than the original and uses the same lyrics. Madeon continues to impress me, as the young prodigy he is.

Enjoy your weekends and tell the rain gods to stay away for Sunday's R3HAB show.
