Not something you would necessarily hear from hard-hitter Michael Woods. Here we have what is a beautiful remix of a very, very old trance song by the name of ‘Love Stimulation’ by Humate. Michael Woods’ soft, Ambient touch on this song takes you to a different world. Just close your eyes and listen. Often I feel mistaken by thinking it is Deadmau5 that came up with this remix, but full credit to Michael Woods. This remix is a testament of the pure talent that Wood’s possesses.

This weeks throwback features one of my favorite alternative rock song from back in the day “Mr. Brightside”. I’m sure all you Pachaholics know the lyrics to this anthem but when Marco V puts his flip on things he makes it into a big room progressive bomb. With a strong vocal build up all leading into a hard percussion drop this track is sure to make dancefloors jump. Enjoy!
Last night while listening to my general library on iTunes on shuffle this classic came on and really reminded me how unique Bart B More’s style really is. This track features everything possible from hard hitting drums to an electro synth with dirty dutch flavor added. The vocal sample “Drums” that leads into the drums drop makes me go insane. Enjoy the throwback!
A couple weeks back, I posted this track that reminded me of 311′s Amber. That lead to my search for any bangin remix to that track. My result was this one, made about 7 months ago. Chubby Fingers took the original and left is as it is, changed nothing to the vocals or the guitar/steel drum melody, which I found amiable. Its like those tracks you hear on the radio, remixes of mainstream songs, that make you wonder how did these amateur producers find the acapella and all the missing parts. Those are categorized as bootlegs, when artists don’t allow anyone to remix their track, people just take all the necessary parts and remix the track regardless, and since they aren’t stealing the artists work, they can offer it for free.
This week on Throwback Thurs we feature an Avicii classic. This remix, if you can even really call it that, is a complete remake of the original “Rapture” with Nadia Ali’s soothing vocals. This is one of my personal favorite Avicii tracks and it features some of the most uplifting synths in house music and is pure progressive perfection. Enjoy!
Although many of you Pachaholics may already known this legendary throwback, some of our EDM new comers may not, so I had to share. The song that started the Moombahton genre, titled “Moombah” by Chuckie and Silvio Ecomo, is a hard hitting Dutch original that didn’t seem Dirty Dutch enough for Afrojack, so he added his own flavor to it. The Afrojack remix is filled with squeeks and pitch bends and all the other Dirty Dutch madness. Enjoy!
P.S.: Slow this track down to 108 bpm and see why Moombahton was created
This is a mash up of all the popular songs from 2011, done perfectly. Although this isn’t exactly EDM, I thought it was pretty cool rendition of all the popular tracks. Enjoy!
Nothing says banger, like any track with Sander Van Doorn’s name in it. The man simply doesn’t know how to produce a bad track. Spaceman was released back in 09, originally the track was a little soft, but then Part 2 came out, and now it’s basically a shuffler’s dream. I mean yes, we all hate tracks that take forever to drop, and this takes about 2 min just for the vocals to kick in. Regardless this track is sure to make u reminisce, Sanders slightly older sets, even though presently he still would drop this track. Take Ezoo for instance, Doorn dropped this along with countless other bombs. But, he played at 2pm, yeah you heard right, 2 fuckin o’clock. The man should get a headliners spot, forget Bloody Beatroots, Sander should of had their time slot. Anyway, enjoy this throwback!
Currently ranked #1 on DJ Mags top 100 DJ’s, Armin Van Buuren really set the standard when it comes to the disc jockey world. A pioneer int the Trance genre, Armin has come onto the scene with full force making tracks such as “Broken Tonight” and “Drowning”. This remix of BT’s “Every Other Way” features a gradual build up to some of the most soothing lyrics I’ve ever heard in a house track. The lyrics are simply amazing. Following the vocal build up is a Trance drop that is standard to Armin’s style. The drop is also captivating and amazing. Enjoy the throwback!
Before the Dirty Dutch genre really came to life, Sidney Samson and DJ Chuckie reigned supreme and set the standard for all the Dirty Dutch tracks produced today. Last summer Sidney Samson created this fast paced remix of Die and Interface’s “Bright Lights”. Using the high pitched signature Dirty Dutch sound, Samson creates a catchy drop with hard hitting percussion that is known for this genre and especially Sidney himself. Always reeling audiences in with his hard hitting toms and layered drums, Samson really set the standard for all Dirty Dutch music created today. Enjoy!
