What a release of remixes! Nicky Romero drops a monster beat with a flare of big room house style, Fred Falke combines a radical melody along with timely upbeat tempos. R3hab adds his nifty dance influence and intense build ups to the mix while Nick Thayer rounds out the group by slowin it down, emanating a kickin moombahton feel with what I think is the most unique remix. I knew it was Nick as soon as i heard it. That being said, all these tracks gave me an urge to dance or at least viciously headbang. Enjoy them after the break ;)
PS: If you haven't heard the original, here ya go!
'Sparks' has just been released by Fedde Le Grand and Nicky Romero! Both gods of the music dj world, they have made a great collaboration. The music video, if you can notice (or were there) was shot at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
The track will be available for purchase soon on itunes and Beatport tomorrow! Keep updated for links.

March was a busy, busy month. With Ultra Music Festival, Miami Music Week, & Beyond Wonderland taking the spotlight, the music behind all of their success is what really counts right? Well.. it does for most of it. Ultra Music Festival was bouncing with some of the most sexy people in the world that I have ever seen gathered in one place. For anyone who does frequent the massives, the guys (and some girls I know too) go just to take in the eye-candy. The boundaries are blurred and the party girls are out to impress and show off their bodies in all their amazingness and it is LEGEN..... WAIT FOR IT....
DARY! (I've been stuck on a How I Met Your Mother craze, couldn't help myself)
To top it all off, they are in public dancing right along with the rest of us. Anything to complain about? I think not fellas.
We are excited to see what other kind of fun things we can bring you!
Without further ado, lets bring on the top 12 tracks we covered over the past month!
Here are this week's top tracks! For last week's edition, click here!
First on the list is an explosive new preview by dubstep and electro house artist Feed Me (AKA Spor in the neurofunk DNB circles). This new track is called 'My Little Cat Steps'. Coming from Mau5trap records, this song sounds like it's going to be pretty huge.
Lauren Lane, another DJ on the rise, has released some SICK deep house. Really liking this tech-inspired, refreshing take on the genre, check out her track 'Lazer Eyes' below!
It's not often you hear an electro house remix of a reggae track, but that's what Benny Benassi has decided to do. He's taken Bob Marley's classic 'Jammin' and has turned it into a banging, upbeat hit!
Abruptly cutting off their new track at the height of its climax in this preview, Dirty South & Alesso made me laugh rather than tear up with emotion. However, I do think this track will be epically tender like usual, and I'm looking forward to its release.
Thanks for listening, and be sure to check out the next edition of weekly beats!
So this past Thursday, March 22nd, 2012, Nick Romero and Mark Brown from MYNC (and founder of Cr2 records) sat down with us at electrojan, with very special help from our friends at More electro Please, to discuss their 2012 WMC Compilation Mix in Miami the day before Ultra Music Festival started.
Together, on the Cr2 record label based in the UK, they put together a compilation for all of their fans. They talk about how they chose which tracks to put into the compilation, what they think of each-other's tracks, and about what being in Miami for WMC and Ultra means to them. They also discuss the present and future of the label as well as their world-renown radio show that broadcasts in over 30 countries to over 8 million listeners weekly!! Check out and buy the compilations at the following links, watch our EXCLUSIVE interview with Nicky Romero and Mark, and also check out the track listing to compilation after the interview.

electrojan would like to give a special thanks to Cr2 Records, Mark Brown, Nicky Romero, Justin Kleinfeld, More Electro Please and everyone else who made this interview happen!
Jack Back reunites once again as Nicky Romero and David Guetta collaborate on yet another stellar track. "Oval" is highly reminiscent the newer David Guetta sound heard in tracks like "Alphabeat" and "Stockholm" off his latest release "Nothing But The Beat". While Nicky Romero's signature low end wobbles aren't as prominent as his previous collaboration like "Wild One Two", I still like the direction this track heads in. The beat is much more grounded in french style electro (melodic David Guetta style, not SebastiAn style...) as opposed to the big room house that's been inundating the market in recent months.
Check out the preview below!
In anticipation of the most anticipated Labor Day event in the Tri-State area, Nicky Romero has unleashed a massive mix to prep our ears for what is bound to be a set to remember at Electric Zoo this year. Infusing some of his new material like his collaboration with Zedd titled "Human" to the highly anticipated collaboration with David Guetta titled "Oval" with set staples like "Nicktim" "Bong", Romero once again proves his worth. This man is just on fire!
Check out the mix below, and you can see the tracklist after the jump:
Nicky Romero and Calvin Harris wrap up the summer with a preview to a sure fire hit that will be getting dropped during the fall and winter festivals. Uplifting vocals and high powered transitions combine with monstrous synths for a first class anthem. Be sure to stay tuned with us for the full release.
Hot off the heals of Zedd's "Spectrum EP" pack comes "Human", a grinding house collaboration between Zedd and Nicky Romero. The track highlights that low end crunching bass that both producers seem to love so much, yet after hearing the stellar releases put out recently by both producers like "WTF!" and "Spectrum", I'm left wanting a little bit more. Although I wouldn't consider this a track to gloss over, I think I'll stick with bathing my ears in the "Spectrum EP" today.
You can listen to a preview below, or purchase the track on Beatport here.
