DJ Pierre just released ThEEEE MiXtApEEEE (not to be confused with Blaqstarr’s brand new The Mixtape) and unlike the multiple-artist, old classics-meet-new club hits mixed CDs he’s known for, this one’s 30 minutes of original productions.

Listen To This DJ Pierre Remix of Rihanna’s “S & M”

Norwegian production duo Stargate have put together dance-pop hits like Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable,” Ne-Yo’s “Closer” (which DJ Booman remixed), and more recently Katy Perry’s “Firework” and Rihanna’s “S & M.” All of the songs follow this loud-quiet-loud, build-up blueprint that isn’t too far removed from club music, but still doesn’t really compare given club’s well,...

M.I.A’s Vicki Leekx arrived on New Year’s Eve, and it features production from the usual suspects: Diplo, Switch, Rusko, and Baltimore’s own Blaq Starr.

The Club Beat: The Year in Baltimore Club

Ultra Nate | Image by Bart Everly 2009 was a big year for Baltimore club music to mutate and combine with other sounds, whether it was indie-rock duo Wye Oak’s tender take on Rod Lee’s club classic “Dance My Pain Away,” Cex’s IDM dissection of club breakbeats on his Battaille Royale, or Debonair Samir...
