Good 2 You

Incase you missed it, we posted the download link for all of the songs from this week's Saturday Essential Mix below this post.

Laidback Luke
The crazy dutchman, who says his name comes from the classic Gin 'N Juice by Snoop Dogg, has been on a rampage recently, releasing all sorts electronic fire ready-made to destroy your speakers. I like how he's been able to distinguish himself from his numerous uber-talented countrymen by not sticking to the typical dutch sound, but rather by branching out in a whole bunch of directions to demonstrate the depth and versatility of his talent. This first track, a remix of Do! Do! Do! by Carte Blanche (aka DJ Medhi and Riton) and Kid Sister, demonstrates just how wide a range of sounds Mr Luke is easily able to synthesize together into a coherent whole. The song weaves between miami-vice-type upbeat house and relentless euro-electro. The result is a monstrous club banger that feels reminiscent of (my personal favorite Laidback luke song) MSTRKRFT - Heartbreaker (Laidback Luke Remix)

Carte Blanche feat. Kid Sister - Do! Do! Do! (Laidback Luke Remix)

This next track from Mr. Luke is a progressive house masterpiece and a perfect testament to how wide a range of skills he has. Look for this track to be destroying dancefloors all over the world this winter.
Laidback Luke feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn - Timebomb (Instrumental Mix)

Duck Sauce
Ever since my man Sir Real pointed out this awesome collaboration between Louis La Roche and Duck Sauce in one of La Roche's mixes two weeks ago, I've been desperately trying to find a copy of it because anything even remotely related to those two artists is worth my/your undivided attention. The song is as groovy as you would expect from Duck Sauce, but it has a distinct french-house/louis la roche touch to it that really makes it irresistible. After sifting through loads of crappy radio rips, I finally found a nice edit/refix that should hold you over until the release.
Duck Sauce - Good 2 Me (Louis La Roche Edit - Jamie What Easy2DJ Fix)

I don't know if you guys have heard the new Black Eyed Peas single, but it's surprisingly house-ey and enjoyable. They were some of the first pop artists to recognize and embrace the electronic revolution (they played at Ultra last year and is a frequent collaborator with man of the moment David Guetta), so I guess you have to give them some respect. Alvaro brings some dutch-style amplitude to this track, beefing up the airy house-synth section and introducing an explosive, monster drop to balance it out. The result is this song has something for everyone (a great weapon for any DJ).
Black Eyed Peas - The Time (Dirty Bit) (Alvaro Remix)

I hopped in my man petey's car the other day, only to hear this relaxing and awesome remix of Buzzin' coming out of the speakers. I asked him what the song was, and I was surprised to learn it was a Classixx remix I hadn't heard of. Classixx are the bomb; something about their productions seems to have this warmth and lushness to it that's really unmatched by anyone. This track may not be new, but it's thoroughly incredible, so grab it below if you don't already have it.
Shwayze - Buzzin' (Classixx Remix)

A nice little electro thumper here courteousy of DirtyLoud. Can anyone tell me what old deadmau5 song is sampled extensively here?
Aerospace - Simple Words (DirtyLoud Remix)

Stay Classy,
