Birthday Explosion!

4 Jun

We’re hitting the time of year when a LOOOOT of birthdays crop up.  “Why now?” you might ask.  Well, just think back 9 months, to when most of the country is snowed in, days are shorter, people huddle inside together and are forced to find ways to…entertain themselves.

The end result of this is a ton of summer celebrations, and smack dab in the middle of prime vacation time.  To commemorate, YDP is proud to share an original production created by a few of our friends, scored with the dulcet tones of thumping 80s style techno: Birthday Explosion.  You’re all invited!

[note: music is “Birthday Dance (Techno Mix)” by the Revelers Band]


Your Weekly Shot of Energy: Calvin Harris – Flashback

1 Mar

Hello everyone…you know it’s going to be a rough week when you hit Monday morning and can’t wait to have your next weekend already.  What usually carries me through is thinking back on the chaos that was my last night out.  It’s been a little while since we’ve featured something from Calvin Harris’ second album, Ready for the Weekend, but I think it’s well past time, and extremely appropriate here.  Join Mr. Harris in this “Flashback” to the weekend:

Remix Of The Day: The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s-Heads Will Roll

18 Nov
YDP made a lot of noise…well a little noise with Lord_B’s bizarre hate of Karen O. Well the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s got a little A Trak treatment. A Trak’s style is being called “Dance Music” these days and it definitely comes across in his mix tapes and remixes. He is all about fun and got a lot of attention when he remixed Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” to be “Poke Her Face” and got Kid Cudi, Common and Kanye on board. Brilliant!
Oh yeah and check out my boy Sammy Bananas. He is signed to A Trak’s Fools Gold label. I’ll definitely do a write him up soon.
