Kaskade feat. Skylar Grey “Room For Happiness”

Both the dance and the more acoustic version of this song written and produced by Kaskade are very well done. Great direction that Kaskade took on the production of this track and the use of Skylar for the vocals!

I’ve included a copy of the “Ice mix” version. Enjoy!


Deadmau5 ~ Sofi Needs A Ladder Feat. Sofi

TGIF everyone! The Ides of March is now behind us by a day, so time for me to venture forth with a new blog post.

In regards to watching live acts, I prefer smaller venues to see life shows these days; two thousand people max if possible. Ideal venue sizes are in the five hundred to thousand people range such that one can get up close to the band, singer or DJ if they like, but still have enough people in the venue to give the live act the right amount of energy. That being said I’ve attached a YouTube video of Deadmau5 performing live at the Roskilde Music Festival last Summer, “Sofi Needs a Ladder”, featuring Sofi on the vocals of course! The venue used at the Roskilde Festival is rather large so Deadmau5 is far to removed from the audience in my view.

According to the Roskilde web site “Roskilde Festival is the largest North European culture and music festival and has existed since 1971. they are a non-profit organization consisting of about 25 full-time employees and thousands of volunteers. Each year, The Roskilde Festival Charity Society, which is the association behind Roskilde Festival, ensures that the profits from the festival are donated directly to humanitarian and cultural purposes.” Here is a link to the Roskilde web site: Roskilde Music Festival.

Given that so many people are not buying music anymore, I guess I can understand why performers are playing bigger and bigger live venues if they have the draw capacity. The positive cash flow for professional performers these days is from touring not in the selling of their music. In any event, this is a live recording of Sofi Needs a Ladder (I hope it’s not lip synced) and Ms. Sofi of course adds her visual charms and vocal talents to the live performance too by Deadmau5! The crowd is into it, it’s a great song and the energy is up beat! Enjoy!

DJ Splash Kidd Spins Tunes in Second Life

DJ Splash Kidd (me, myself and I when I decide I need a digital 3D holiday) is schedule to rezz into Second Life (“SL”) this evening to spin a variety of dance/club related tunes. This is a rare Wednesday night gig time for me, as my regular DJ time each week is 10pm to Midnight on Thursday nights. I’m really looking forward to spinning tunes this evening as I’m DJ right after DJ AFI, who is a very close friend and a super virtual DJ and a very talented real life (“RL”) DJ too from Los Angeles California. Here is the link to DJ AFI’s RL web page so you can check out her style of DJ and earlier work history in the TV and Film industry in Los Angeles too! DJ AFI DJ AFI is on at 8pm to 10pm Second Life Time (“SLT”) which is the same as Pacific Standard Time (“PST”) for you not meta-verse readers of this blog posting. I’ll be DJ from 10pm SLT to Midnight. If you’re a member of Second Life and “out and about on the grid” this evening, please drop by to hear either DJ AFI, DJ Splash Kidd or both of us spin some tunes this evening on the internet!
