The Tunes That You Probably Forgot About (Or Maybe Never Even Heard Yet)

| June 2nd, 2011 | No Comments »

Sitting here at lunch, with my headphones blown out, and no way to listen to my tunes, I’ve had some time to contemplate some musical musings.

As I was thumbing through my portable music library I began to find great tracks that I forgot about, were underrated, or simply didn’t get the play I think they deserved.

I’m sure that we could put together a pretty impressive list of these kinds of tunes – I’ll get it started:

 

Prodigy – Diesel Power

Great tune from my favourite Prodigy album “The Fat of The Land”. If you’ve got some subwoofers that need testing, this track is the one to do it.

Vital Radio 139 – Hour 2: Morgan Page (With Interview)

| May 23rd, 2011 | No Comments »

With over 110 remixes to his name—including tracks by Madonna (“Miles Away”), Katy Perry (“I Kissed A Girl”), Tegan & Sara (“Back In Your Head”), and La Roux (“Bulletproof”)—Morgan Page has earned a solid reputation for transferring insatiable pop energy to the dance floor in the form of banging, progressive house tracks. High ranking spots on iTunes’ dance chart, Beatport’s progressive chart, and Billboard’s club charts affirmed his salability, while an ’09 Grammy nomination for Deadmau5’s remix of Page’s “The Longest Road” simultaneously bolstered his underground cred while spotlighting his skills as a songwriter.

Having long jettisoned his status as an up-and-comer, Page is ready to step into the next phase of his career, firmly joining the ranks of established “triple threat” DJs, producers, and remixers like Kaskade, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz.

Morgan Page lays down some fresh tunes, and hangs around to chat about life, music and everything.
