Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye and Kimbra


Hello everyone,

Today’s track is from the Belgian songwriter Gotye with his colleague from New Zealand, Kimbra.  “Somebody That I Used To Know” is a very chill track with excellent sound mixing on the part of Gotye.  There are many points in the song where he is harmonizing with himself, which sometimes make a grown man (me) shake with excitement.  This track is off of Gotye’s third album Making Mirrors, which was released on August 19th 2011, this song was released as a sample to the album on July 6th of the same year.  Kimbra’s voice is has a slight resemblance to Katy Perry’s when you listen to her own music, and you can hear it here as well, though this time it’s not in a gross pop setting, so it’s much more enjoyable for me and many others.  The soft melodies of the guitar and xylophone really set this song up, as it builds, and when it hits the chorus, the harmony presented is absolutely wonderful.  This song and especially the video are full of emotion that alot of people can relate with.  Anyway, if you haven’t heard this track yet, I guarantee you won’t be able to stop listening to it now.  As always, Listen, Rate, Subscribe.

On the Beach – Armin van Buuren’s “A State of Trance 2006”


Armin van Buuren

Hello all,  I figured I’d post something that I will undoubtedly listen to at least 3 times through this weekend while relaxing on what is looking to be a glorious 4th of July Weekend.  If you have had anything to do with the Trance music scene over the last ten years, you will undoubtedly have heard the name Armin van Buuren.  For those of you who haven’t heard of him, he is the worlds most popular DJ for Trance/Dance music.  This particular mix of his starts out awesome, ends pretty awesome, and in the middle… it’s still awesome.  One of my favorite mixes to date, layered with chill Piano and Strings, and laced with hard hitting bass lines that we all have come to expect out of anything Electronic. I know it’s a long track (1:13:37 or 73 minutes for those of you who’d prefer it that way) for you all to listen to, but I urge you to give it a listen, I know it will live up to the expectations that I have just implanted into your mind with this wall of text.
