deadmau5 – Snowcone


deadmau5 released “Snowcone” last week an is his first single in a couple of years. Though he often uploads bits and piece of tracks to his recently deleted Soundcloud page. Professional drama aside, “Snowcone” is a great track. There is a great ambient-ness to the track before showing of a harder drum beat and some synth lines with a real nice groove to them. I was super excited to get new music from deadmau5. He is one of my favorite artists and luckily not a lot of rock music has come out recently so I can share this track with you instead.



Welcome to Bump Town: 5 Tunes

Recently I have stumbled on some bump worthy tunes, some old and some new but all make you feel like Antonio Brown putting a kicker….


Tchami is the Alec Baldwin of making club jamz. He brings it to the next level with amped up sounds that words cannot describe. If you put on Transformers and skipped all the shitty love story stuff Tchami’s music would sound exactly like the movie.

Deep house central right here, this sound is taking over the world. Once rich white kids play this it’s all over…

If you want some new sounds check out Watermat because this French DJ brings it. Sucks that he is French but I’ll take it because the tracks he creates are Barcelona ready

If you were alive in 2015 then you heard this original track, Nora En Pure takes it in a different path with this remix. An orchestra and Saxophones are nothing to complain about in house music today… this is beautiful production work

I am only posting this song because it was played at Tomorrowworld a lot… like a lot a lot and you can tell why. It gets the kids moving. Play this track when you’re making some kid cry in Fifa, hopefully he rage quits




The Future: Some New Names for 2016

Anderson Pakk

Anderson Pakk recently dropped his project “Malibu”, a soulful look into the talented rapper/producer/vocalists life. On this album the song “The Waters” is a game changer. Its the kind of track that Kanye would turn his head for… the kind of song that makes an artist stand out among the crowd. Be on the lookout for big things from this man.


Lewis Del Mar

Thanks to our man on the streets Thomas “The Stud” Miles we were introduced to Lewis Del Mar before their blow up.. which is dope. Coming out with their EP “EP” consisting of 4 tracks that fucking rock, the duo from Queens took the streaming world by storm and I could not be happier.


Leon Bridges

Ladies if you haven’t heard of Mr. Smooth yet Leon Bridges is going to sweep you off your feet. His voice is better than that dog instagram that you love, better than the Kanye vs Wiz Twitter battle, better than rushing Pike. His single “Coming Home” went viral and now the dude is touring around the world… Coming to Pittsburgh in a couple months and this guy will be there.

You all know Bleachers Aka Jack Antonoff, but how do you know him? Remember that band FUN!? He was a part of that… and now he is solo and killin the game. You might have heard this one before:

And now you’re going to be hearing a lot more of him just wait.


Marian Hill

Marian Hill is a Philly Duo which makes them all time in my books already. Last year I saw them at Firefly and this year they are playing at Bonnaroo… so they are winning life right now. Their style is unreal and beyond unique and we have an exclusive loo in with them from a little while ago you can find here: Marian Hill


Never Be Like You – Flume, Kai

Flume is jesus. I don’t know why I still get surprised when he kills a track, the guy is a magician when it comes to producing. “Never Be Like You” is going to be one of 2016’s hottest tracks. It is going to be on my late night post as well because the peoples need to hear it.


Late Night with Bert Macklin

The ler’s lost but music can fix your problems you yinzers. In the words of the great Bert Macklin “I tried to make ramen in the coffee pot and I broke everything”


Man Crush City right here. Sorry Matt Damon you’re out bro… Benjy’s in.


Deorro pairs up with Far East Movement and Uberjak’d for insanity. Insanity is the only word that fits. I want to see this Panda loving producer live to rage to this track. Let’s all turn this one up real quick.


Kid Cudi is coming to Pittsburgh Feb 5th. Get your tickets here : Cudi Tix

For that reason this is my late night delicious song… fuck all the haters of Cudi cause this guy has one of the best catalogs of all time. Cudder changed hip-hop sounds and made this writer’s life much better.


Daft Punk is better than watching the patriots lose in the playoffs. They are revolutionary and I’m convinced they are robots. This live concert album “Alive” is the epitome of live entertainment. I’m pretty sure Kanye was at this concert and he smiled, thats how good it was… I’m also pretty sure that you don’t need to fact check that.


Late Night With DJ Chewy

So this is going to become an installment on ABAD, late night with yours truly. Gonna give you all 4 songs… 1 Chill, 1 Turnip, 1 Delicious and 1 Old. Deal with it puds


As far as opening lines go this track by Zea & The Copper Children is top 5. Very smooth song to get you ready for bed time children.


Marshmello is taking the turnip house game by storm. The guy dropped his album “Joytime” a couple days ago and this track is a party starter. If you’re a lonely guy put this song on and 3 Tri Delts will appear at your door. Its like the movie Field of Dreams except this time “if you play it pud will come”. Try it out and let me know if it works


Danny Brown has that indescribable feature that makes him enjoyable to listen to. His voice is one for the ages and this song is a straight up delicious meal for the ears


If you don’t like queen you’re probably a New England Patriots fan. Fat Bottom Girls take me home tonight



Songs That You Can Bump to In Bed

It’s almost finals time and everyone is done with school being a thing. For those of you that physically and mentally can’t get out of bed to do anything we have you covered with these jams. Some of these songs are new and some are old, some you can sing as loud as you can and some you can just vibe to, either way enjoy and let’s have some fun. Stay under those covers and put your shitty iPhone headphones in and lets bump courtesy of these artists and bands.

First up is a producer that my boy Diabetic Dylan found and sent over my way. This song is straight Joe Dirt… house with hip-hop is a dangerous combination:

Next up is a very relaxed track that came out a few weeks ago. “All My Friends” features Chance The Rapper who touches a song and it turns to gold:

Anyone remember this one? Xaphoon Jones aka the second half of Chiddy Bang did this mashup like 8 years ago.

Another classic before either of these two blew up.. Big Sean and Chiddy Bang collab for my favorite Big Sean song

B.o.B used to be my man. I would listen to his mixtapes and rehearsed every word. This song is my teenage years right here. Shouts to Armen if you read this:

This track by The Dixie Chicks still gives me chills to this day. If you don’t know what the song is about look it up and re-listen. This right here is the power of music:

This one speaks for itself, just makes you feel good also 141 million views on YouTube…. unreal:

This last song is from “The Boss” and is my favorite Christmas Song hands down:


Stay classy guys




3 Songs That Would Knock Ronda Rousey Out

Holly Holm is my new favorite person. If you don’t know whats happening right now I am talking about the UFC fight that happened last night. Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm, where Holly took it to the “Champ” and knocked her out in the second round. Just like Holly, these songs would knock Ronda Rousey out pretty easily (most likely in the first round).

  1. Downtown – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (Tom Budin Remix)

Great remix to an already great song by one of my favorite duo’s in the music world.

2. Mine – Phoebe Ryan (Lash Remix)

I have posted this song before but its too good to forget about.

3. To Ü – Skrillex & Diplo – (feat. AlunaGeorge)

This song has been out for some time now but it gets the blood pumpin!

A Little Extra. This is the song Ronda was playing in her while she was knocked out. Great Choice:

Goodness Gracious- Ellie Goulding (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Before I get into the blog this is one my favorite remixes period. Ellie Goulding is magical and The Chainsmokers absolutely nailed this song…I’ll never hear enough of it. I hope this song makes its way towards your Top 25 Most Played….

You know when you wake up and realize that it’s finally that day you’ve been looking forward to for months and can’t help but get over excited….

The Chainsmokers are coming to town and I for one am very very excited for that. Luckily Pittsburgh is one of their stops on their Friendzone Tour with special guest Matoma, who will also be worth going early to see…tropical house city. This will be my second time seeing them (probably not the last) and I’m expecting a lot better than the debacle that was their Atlantic City show back on 4th of July weekend (there really wasn’t anyone there.) I will be joined by fellow writers Chewb, Zimmvibes, and AV as well as some of our other friends who follow the site so I’m expecting a nice little Tuesday evening with some Roses and hopefully this Ellie Goulding remix.

For those reading this that are going to the concert, let’s all have a good time and forget about midterms for a few hours and listen to some awesome music. And for those of you reading this who aren’t going….

Don’t worry I’ll post a blog about it with some pics and some of the songs they played so don’t fret!! ABAD will always be here to help with your music FOMO.

Cue the music!!!
