This could be interesting…..
GRAMMY nominated producer/remixer Deadmau5 has just released a new app for the iPhone and iPod touch. The application allows users to mix and remix using ten exclusive tracks (from Deadmau5). You can apply delays, effects, rewinds, cuts, and more.
Its time for an upgrade!! Its been a couple of years now since we started this project. The fact that the site is still up and gaining new traffic monthly is attributed to our loyal readers. For that we, as well as the artists we promote thank you. As you can see from the lack of Google Ad-Words and banners the focus has never been about putting money in our pockets. Our goal is to have you put those dollars in the pockets of the artists we promote through providing easy ways to purchase their music, see shows, etc. With this being said, we arent in the position to hire an agency (unless they are willing to donate their time) to help us with branding. So we thought we would throw it out to you, our friends, to assist. So this goes out to all of you graphic designers out there who check in with us for your daily dose of decadent electronic music. Care to put your creative genius to work for a good cause in return for exposure/promotion on the site and eternal gratitude? If so, please submit inquiries to strictlysocial.com (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment for us with a way to contact you. From there we can give you further details. Thanks in advance! Hope to hear from you.

A ton of music hitting our inbox in the past couple of weeks. Here are some essential selections to go out and purchase for your playlists.
Yelle got a ton of exposure on MTV the past couple of weeks as the “Artist of the Week.” Good to see them get something right!
First, a big thank you to the good folks at Columbia Records and Sony BMG for sending us a ton of music recently. We are still going threw it all. Keep it comin! One of the highlights thus far has been the remix that Soulwax did for the movie “21.” They took a Rolling Stones classic and gave it an upgrade. They were allowed to use the original master tapes; an honor only granted to Fatboy Slim and N.E.R.D. previously.Although its a lower tempo mix, its still going to get people moving on the dance floor.

In other Soulwax news… their highly anticipated film / documentary “Part of the Weekend Never Dies” will have its premiere at the Ether Festival at the Royal Festival Hall in London on April 24th. Director Saam Farahmand filmed Soulwax on their recent international dates, capturing all the excitement, chaos and humor of the world tour . 120 shows were filmed with one camera in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America and Australia. This resulted in 2 films; a live music film and a documentary which includes 2manydj’s, Soulwax Nite Versions and features James Murphy, Nancy Whang, Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches, Kitsuné, Klaxons and many more in behind the scenes footage, interviews and LOTS of music.
