DA’s Best of the Rest: Monday July 23, 2012
We honestly wish that Mondays were a little more mellow because we have a hard time fitting in all the news. There was a TON of music released today from Digitalism & Tommy Trash, 4 strings, Eva Simons, Stefan Dabruck & Tocadisco, and even remixes of an Usher track. SHM discussed their new single with MTV, Arty released a video from Alesso’s 21st birthday party and even more. If you’re having a hard time keeping up, don’t worry because there is even more past the break.
2. We took a look at A-Trak’s set from Camp Bisco and picked 5 tracks you need to know.
3.Zedd’s remix package to “Spectrum” contains five different remixes of the already great track. Plus there’s a bonus collaboration with Nicky Romero.
4.AN21 & Max Vangeli have previewed People of the Night in a 15 minute mini mix.
