Introducing the first edition of #SyncBackSunday, a new weekly post featuring some of the best ghosts of EDM’s past. (Oh, I do like a good pun.) Sometimes we need a reminder to stop and smell those roses…and for the life of me, I can’t understand why Throwback Thursday was devised, as all I want to hear on a Thursday or Friday night is something new, exciting, and awakening! So, I motion to save our throwbacks till Sunday, when, each Sunday eve, you can expect some tunes you won’t have heard throughout the week, may have never heard, and absolutely can’t not hear in your EDM-listening career. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a trip down EDMemory lane… it’s time for #SyncBackSunday.
This week’s premiere edition features a number of artists to be seen at the currently-ongoing Miami Music Week — but you’d be downright jackpot-lucky to hear these old beats on their systems…!

★ Gotye - Somebody That I Used To Know (Paolo Ortelli vs. Degree Remix) ↓
I have loved this song from the second it first hit my ears. iTunes is showing me I have eleven remixes of “Somebody That I Used to Know” in addition to its beautiful original, by all sorts of top-shelf DJs, from dBerrie’s most famous, house edit, to a kooky cut by dj Bibio, to a womptastic KDrew mix. But this version, a mash of remixing by Paolo Ortelli and Degree, is simply the best. Haunting and low at first, the remix focuses on the catchy, deep-cutting lyrics to build anticipation — until about the 2’45”-mark, when the emotion bursts free and glorious, cascading harmonies…
Original and runner-up remixes after the jump!

we go Hardwell
Hardwell’s been on fire lately. In this sick new vid he let loose recently, he demonstrates how to positively own the stages of Ultra Music Festival and a Miami nightclub, and showcases two of the latest filthy nice releases by his label, Revealed Records: a pulsating collab with fellow Dutchman Danny Dannic and a mix by Revealed’s Dyro and Beatport’s Rene Kuppens. Finally, below’s an extra goodie… a remix of The Naked & Famous… with freakin’ Tiësto!?! God, I just can’t keep up!

November 30th, 2011; Tiësto Day
Tonight, king dj Tiësto lands in New York to bring madness to Pacha for its 6-year anniversary. Despite the MASSIVE weekend just incurred, the excitement that’s been slowly building for the past few months is fit to burst. THIS DAY CANNOT GO BY FAST ENOUGH. For the meantime, Tiësto overload — two new originals, two hot remixes, and two amazeballs classics !!!
time to get downnn
Been on a bit of a Kaskade bender ever since the drop of Fire & Ice, but honestly the singles that preceded the release were better than most of the rest on there.. So I’d just like to give a huge highfive to Le Castle Vania, a 26yo Georgia-boy who just dropped a really sweet remix of Turn It Down that, in spite of the title, requires you to turn it up. Just LISTEN to that solo at 2’17”…. EPIC!! Thanks @ BlahBlahBlahScience for the awesome share !
Alex Gaudino… alex gaudino… Ah, yes.. the memories of those heehaw-ing echoes of “Destination Calabria” bouncing off the walls of every club ‘round the world in 2007 are coming back to me… Well Gaudino’s dropped another anthemic remix, The Wanted’s “Glad You Came”. Dance away! As backup, JapWOW’s courteously updated our Destination with a bit of a new spin.
oh, canada !
A big thanks to my buddy Keylime, at JamzNotJelly.com, for tuning me into this adolescent hipster duo. Autoérotique, the team of Toronto-natives Keith Robertson and Dave Henderson, produce some crazy stuff. Self described, after starting “as indie band producers, they hop-scotched over to dance music after receiving a marijuana-lubricated epiphany to Groove Armanda’s first album at the tenderized age of 17—only to be swallowed whole by the city’s burgeoning dance scene.” Quite a story, fellas.
♬ Autoérotique - Turn Up The Volume (Torro Torro and Billy the Gent Remix)
The reason I post this? Well if there’s anything you should know about me by now it’s that I’m a sucker for high-definition slow-motion capture; completely hypotized; sh*t’s amazing. So combine this vid with the moombahton kick I’ve been on and I was sold on the spot when I heard the remix. Honestly even more amazing is Keylime’s find of the Autoérotique remix to Tiësto’s new “Work Hard, Play Hard”— a seriously masterly work. (And agreed, so much better than the original!)
