“Marination by @Meatportmusic” begins with a rework of @Linneyofficial’s “AloneTonight”

LINNEY, “Alone Tonight” (Marinated by Meatport)

In its original version, “Alone Tonight” by L.A.-based singer/songwriter Linney – known for her work with Robbie Rivera, covers like last year’s “Never Be Like You”, and her own originals – is a dreamy mid-tempo ballad about being with your special someone on a night at home when perhaps they should have company.  In the hands of producer/remixer Meatport however, that evening becomes vibrant and teleported to a rave where that person will have a great time.  Meatport’s trap “marination” draws heavily on late 90s/early 00’s techno to give “Alone Tonight” a really giddy bounce while retaining the wonder of Linney’s vocal.  It’s always fun to enhance a blog post about Meatport with some tenderizing seasoning 😉 given his own fun and sometimes wacky songs to date (“The Troll”, “Noobs”, and new Hallowe’en fave “Spook”).  However I’ll forego additional puns by encouraging you to check out Meatport’s seriously good remix of Linney’s “Alone Tonight” at the link above.

Ravers, you now have your theme song: @DVBBS declares “Raveheart”

DVBBS, “Ravestorm”

Just in time for their hometown performance at Toronto’s Veld festival this weekend, Orangeville brothers and DJ’s Alex and Chris drop one of their biggest, busiest, most frenetically enjoyable anthems with “Raveheart”.  It’s an unmistakable ode to ravegoers and their music lifestyle.  After attaining a #1 pop hit in the UK last year with Borgeous on “Tsunami”, the DVBBS lads do not forget where they come from and constantly reach out to their fans, which keeps them coming back to every performance (like three sold out nights in Toronto alone last year).  While being featured in Sander van Doorn’s “Gold Skies” (along with Martin Garrix, which got to #4 on my personal chart) kicked that beautiful song up a few notches, let’s see if the explosive “Raveheart” is enough to propel them to the top of the national dance club play charts.  Listen to “Raveheart” above and pick it up on iTunes on Monday August 3.
