Noise Candy is now part of THE HIVE!

This has been a long time coming.  I've grown up in Charlotte with the guys at The Hive, so I jumped when the opportunity came up to combine forces with in the new year. It's been a great ride here at Noise Candy, but at the end of the day there will be a lot more quality posting with this switch.  I really appreciate all my followers, and I hope you will all follow me over to The Hive.  There's four of us, we all love EDM and we all have our own unique tastes.  Thanks for the support.

[OFFICIAL VIDEOS] Swedish House Mafia "Antidote" & Dada Life "Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker"

These are two very different videos, but they are both quite awesome.  Swedish House Mafia and Knife Party's video for "Antidote" is about a heist and is shot in first person, from the viewpoint of one of the robbers.  It's a really well directed music video.  Dada Life's music video for "Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker" has new vocals on it and is a cool video, it has cameos from Porter Robinson, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, Laidback Luke, Chuckie, Tiesto and Kaskade.  Do yourself a favor and check these videos out.

Emancipator - Elephant Survival

I rarely listen to a track twice in a row, but if I do I know it's a real jam.  That was the case with this new track from Emancipator.  He's such a good producer, has great beats and really defines "instrumental" hip hop.  This track's a real gem, he uses flawless incorporation of guitar (and banjo), pan flute and violin in this track.  Emancipator has two albums out that have so many rotations that I've lost count.  I'm back in Charlotte now for the holidays, watched football all day long and couldn't be more happy.  Enjoy.

Dada Life - Queen Club: Paris, France Dec. 10 2011

My fault for not posting in so long, I was in Paris for 3 days, then have been incredibly busy since with final papers I've been putting off.  Anyways, Paris was the shit.  We saw Madeon at Social Club on Thursday with Russ Chimes, it was incredible.  The highlight of the trip was on Saturday we saw Dada Life at Queen Club, which was absolutely nuts. The first hour of the set was broadcast online, so I've included the video footage above and the first hour of the set with the setlist.

Big Bad Wolf (Lost Boys Remix) - Duck Sauce

Bristol must have something in it's water, because it seems to me like that town consistently pumps out the best bass music producers in the UK.  The Lost Boys are two producers out of Bristol who just got at me with their remix of Duck Sauce's 'The Big Bad Wolf.'  Give these guys credit, it's a seriously dope remix, better than most of the remixes I've heard of this track, which is a lot.  According to the Lost Boys themselves, this tune's got moombahton vibes at about 110 bpm, but do not fear, it still brings the heavy bass that we all love. Click here to check them out on Soundcloud.  Don't sleep on this track!

HUGE New Releases [Dada Life + Tim Berg + Sub Focus + Marcus Schossow + Bingo Players + Ton!c]

Alright, our good friends at The Hive have already put these first three up, so big ups to them and if you want to read up on the tracks, head over here.  I think Bingo Player's 'Mode' is a better track than the hit 'Rattle,' and 'Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker' is so hype it's ridiculous--I can't wait to see Dada Life this Saturday in Paris.
