Longtime fave Starkillers just dropped this bombshell of a mix. The LA producer has really grown into his niche of powerful dance rhythms, serotonin-leakingly-redundant harmonies, and powerful female vocals (read: Nadia Ali). You should probably have this one in your life too… just sayin’…

Two good teamwork productions for ya in this continuation of my irregular wednesday mashup series (see mashup mercredi and mashup miércoles). The first I found accidentally when I typoed “Bauer” instead of “Baauer” while trap-searching; the second, a much more recently-produced mash led by Canadian DJ Imanos found lurking in the charts of the Hype Machine. That place is like the Department of Mysteries, you don’t know what you’ll find the deeper you go.

miami ‘12 — ultra and wmc’s BEST ACTS [updated]
Oh how far they’ve come from the simple festival thrown in ‘99 for a few chance techno fans… After all the days of skimpy bathing suits and hot sun, ridiculous beach and rooftop parties, and the most outrageous of outfits to be seen, the fourteenth annual Ultra Music Festival has officially come and gone. Thousands of artists, bloggers, reps, and hundreds of thousands of fans flocked to bayfront Miami to bump up the noise, with over 400 parties, events, seminars, and workshops throughout the Winter Music Conference week.
Sync Harder’s Official Picks from Miami’s WMC & Ultra Fest 2012!
Honorable mentions: Armin Van Buuren, Afrojack, Pretty Lights, Madeon, Dada Life, MiM0SA, Fatboy Slim, Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Pendulum, Knife Party, Chase & Status, and Lazy Rich; god, everybody was top of their game…
Best Mashers. Spencer & Hill
I knew close to nothing about these two before arriving in Miami, and though I missed their slot at Ultra, I was fortunate enough to catch them at the H50 rooftop pool party, at the Viceroy Hotel Friday night. Jay-zusss. These two bootlegged songs in ways I can’t even re-imagine… I danced my ass off, hearing pretty much all of 2011 and 2012’s favorite tunes in a 90-minute, beautiful set.

Best Dubstep. Flux Pavilion b2b Doctor P
Well can’t say this was unexpected. Finally got to catch this mofo perform live and HO. SHI. I know we’re not all fans of dubstep, but Flux P takes it outta this world…
Best DJ & Best Visuals. Fedde Le Grand
An undisputed triumph of this year’s Ultra fest, Fedde’s fingers twitched and flicked so quickly while he spun, it was dizzying… The transitions were perfect, the beat never stopped, and the animations that had been created to accompany them were nothing short of mesmerizing. Great set.

Best House. Avicii
Despite Madonna’s attempts to steal the show/flagrantly promote her drug use to the masses, Avicii again orchestrated one of the strongest sets among his world-reknowned co-minions. New bootlegs dropping left and right, beautiful coordination of fire and visuals, and his trusty book full of crowd-pleasing anthems so extensive he could’ve well exceeded his hour and a half timeslot. Hasn’t let me down yet ayyooo!

Best Music. Skrillex
Unbeatable, once again. Amazing visuals, amazing bootlegs, amazing audience control. Bravo, my man.

Best Overall. ★ Sultan + Ned Shepard ★
Tucked away in the furthest stage of Ultra, you might’ve been lucky and wandered into one of the greatest parties on earth. Preceded by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Sidney Samson, and followed by Felguk — fuck disneyworld, this was the greatest place on Earth Saturday, March 24th: the Ultra Fest BAO Dome.

solid Mason work
A new recruit to (⅓ Swedish House Mafia) Steve Angello's Size Records, Tim Mason's been tearin' it up for a lil while now without us even knowin it. Now that he's stepped up to the plate (just had his first Pacha gig last night!), his forward-motion, upbeat remixes and originals keep popping up every which way I look. Hot off the presses, Mason's remixed “Stars Come Out” by Zedd to perfection:
You may have also heard his remix of Alex Metric and Steve Angello’s “Open Your Eyes” in the recap video for last year’s Tomorrowland music festival in Belgium; another serious winner — even Afrojack’s singing along!

…Annnd finally, two must-have classics. This Red Hot remix, his first big breakthrough, is insane. I always have doubts when a song’s taken so far from its original genre, but Mason does away with them quite quick. Sync up!
