Free Download: Daft Punk – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Dillon Francis Remix)

After what has seemed like an insanely long hiatus of new music from the one and only Dillon Francis, we finally have a new track available for free download on his SoundCloud. Debuted as the opening of his set at Ultra Music Festival, this remix of the Daft Punk classic track Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger got the crowd absolutely rowdy. With big booming 808s and all the classic quirkiness of a Dillon Francis track, this one is gonna destroy your next dance floor and get everyone moving no questions asked. Now it’s just a matter of time until that collaboration Set Me Free with Martin Garrix is released….

Skrillex and Diplo Debuted a Ton of New Jack U Music At Ultra

There’s something to be said of the “importance” of sets at a festival like Ultra Music Festival. With more of the top talent available to choose from than one might know what to do with, it may be easy for some gems to get lost in the sauce. Looking at the lineup, the name Jack U might not be the first to jump out at you but their set from Ultra was an hour long auditory onslaught that had the crowd on a whole other level. Sprinkled in was new music from Skrillex’s new album Recess like his track Strangers which we featured on this past week’s episode of ThatNewJamFM and the new 3LAU and Botnek collaboration Vikings.

Skrillex & Diplo – Live @ Ultra Music Festival 2014

The combination of Skrillex & Diplo doing a set together is mindblowing in and of itself but these two are in the studio together as well and they chose their set this weekend to debut a bunch of new material including collaborations with Fatman Scoop, new Major Lazer IDs, Jack U IDs and somewhere in there was the HAAASAVENYAAA thing from The Lion King. If nothing else, this set was an hour of damn god music from two of the most talented producers you can find mixed to damn near perfection.

Eric Prydz Ultra 2014 Set Restored My Faith In Dance Music

Last night, I found my eyes glued to the Ultra Music Festival 2014 live stream like thousands of other distressed 20-somethings. With my FOMO in full effect, I watched The Chainsmokers lead off the UMFTV broadcast and watched Twitter erupt over the antics of Diplo (which I can attest to). The real star of the show however was dance music legend Eric Prydz. In a landscape that is filled with kids waiting for THE DROP and hours of blaring synths that all sound the same, Eric Prydz Ultra 2014 set was conspicuously absent of any “big room” drops, remixes of Animals, remixes of songs from Top 40 radio or any other gimmicks. What I watched on the screen gave me chills enough times for me to count on 2 hands, putting my faith back in the once-over-saturated sound of progressive house and the power of beautiful chord progressions.

Eric Prydz at Ultra Music Festival 2014

The set was filled entirely his own material from his various monikers whether it is his Cirez D label or simply Pryda and from watching the stream, you could see the crowd was thoroughly entranced. The hour that followed his taking the decks was nothing short of magical and the entire Twitterverse seemeed to agree. The standout for me was his recently released track Liberate, which you can stream below; the goosebumps are still lingering hearing it almost 1000 miles away.

Eric Prydz – Liberate

Track Listing:
Cirez D – Exit ID 2013  
Pryda – Mambo 2013 ID 02 
Cirez D – Firestone ID 
Pryda – SW4 [VIRGIN] Pryda – Power Drive (EPIC 2.0 Bauerpost Edit) [PRYDA] Cirez D – Mokba (EPIC 2.0 Edit) [MOUSEVILLE] CHVRCHES – Tether (Eric Prydz Private Remix) 
Eric Prydz – Every Day (Interlude Remix) [PRYDA] Eric Prydz – Every Day [PRYDA] Eric Prydz – Liberate (HOLO Edit) [PRYDA] Eric Prydz – Pjanoo (Eric’s Intro Edit) [PRYDA] Pryda – Viro [PRYDA]

CAZZETTE vs Baauer – Harlem Shake (CAZZETTE’s Ultra Bootleg)

CAZZETTE vs Baauer - Harlem Shake (CAZZETTE's Ultra Bootleg)

I can only imagine what this could have possibly sounded like blasting over the monster Ultra Music Festival sound system. Now I know everyone has had their fill of Harlem Shake remixes but in all seriousness when CAZZETTE decides to give Baauer’s hit track a remix, you know you’re only getting the best. Ash Pournouri has struck gold twice with the At Night Management tag team of CAZZETTE and Avicii and it seems they’re doin so well that they can give this one out for FREE! Definitely not complaining.

Ultra Music Festival Miami 2013 – Forever In My Mind Aftermovie

Although my FOMO was on full blast for the past two weekends, the joy that I saw Ultra Music Festival bring to people was a firm reminder of what is right about this culture. I couldn’t be happier to see Adventure Club getting the featured song with their moving remix of Yuna’s track Lullabies, which I won’t doubt will put some of you guys to tears that are having flashbacks.

A special video to thank everybody for an historic 15th anniversary of Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Attended by 330.000 people and watched by more than 10 million people on Youtube! We really made history together!

The clip shows some of the most magical moments to keep forever in your mind! But it’s just a little taste for what is to come in RELIVE ULTRA MIAMI 2013 (the official aftermovie) coming in June. #RELIVEULTRA

Dillon Francis – Drunk All The Time [UMF 2013]

Dillon Francis - Drunk All The Time [UMF 2013]

In typical fashion, Dillon Francis threw down a very diverse, high energy set during his slot at the first weekend of Ultra Music Festival 2013. Notably included in this set was an unreleased song, ironically believed to be called “Drunk All The Time”. With a rhythmic, fat bass and pleasant, harmonic vocals, it’s yet another example of how no one gets a crowd hyped quite like Dillon Francis. We can only hope to hear this jam during his March 23 set for the second weekend of Ultra Music Festival 2013.

The Ketchup Post – Ultra Music Festival 2013

ultra-music-festival-rukes

This is the TNJ official Ultra Music Festival 2013 Weekend One recap post. While we couldn’t wait another second to give you the Porter Robinson set at sunset, we decided to hold off until the end of the weekend to give you guys the full roundup of the best sets from the first weekend of UMF. There was no shortage of greatness from TNJ favorites such as The M Machine, Flosstradamus and Major Lazer and don’t forget that Hardwell set that put Ultra Music Festival as a worldwide trend on Twitter. Dillon Francis had a human error moment and blamed it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol (but seriously Dilly if you don’t fuck up you’re not trying…just don’t make it harder than it has to be) while Kaskade & Armin Van Buuren proved why they’re festival Main Stage mainstays. If you’re looking for ANY sets at all check out THIS SoundCloud account which has literally EVERY set from the weekend for streaming (and include download links for you guys that are into torrents) but I’ll include my favorites/highlights below!

Porter Robinson – Ultra Music Festival Mainstage Set 2013

porter robinson main stage ultra music festival 2013

I’m not gonna be writing a post for every set that comes out of Ultra Music Festival this weekend but Porter Robinson’s sunset Main Stage set absolutely blew me away. Tuning in via the UMF live feed, I was glued to the screen for the full hour entranced by the impeccable track selection and frantic but precise mixing of America’s gem of EDM. There was not a single boring second in this set and the crowd looked like they were teetering between having their faces melted and covered in tears.

Some standouts include a 100% In The Bitch VIP edit (we’ll be finding a download/rip hopefully soon) as well as some love from Porter for TNJ favorites Synchronice for their I Could Be The One remix and Jay Cosmic for his remix of Saturn. I’m on my third listen through today and will be doing a aggregate post of other notable sets from the weekend later today or tomorrow…just couldn’t wait a second longer to get this set to you guys!
