Ru-Mix: I'm Not Your Toy

Ru-Mix: I'm Not Your Toy

01. We Are Golden - Mika
Mika is back with his signature "feel good" sound. A really fun song, reminiscent of "RENT" and "Glee."
02. Box N Locks - MPHO
MPHO ("mphooo") breaks on to the scene with this catchy first single. Great lyrics too.

03. Mama Do (D'Naeo Edit) - Pixie Lott
Casting Amy Winehouse comparisons aside, this remix makes for a fun bongo number.

04. Yellow Moon - Marius de Vries feat. Róisín Murphy
Recorded in 2007, this beautiful song is finally released, showing again that Ró can do no wrong.

05. Loba - Shakira
Shakira is always better in Spanish than in English. This song is so addictive! Already one of my most played.
06. Shoes - Tiga
For many this will sound odd at first but soon enough you'll be singing along to the quirky lyrics and bopping to the beat.

07. Off and On - Sophie Ellis-Bextor
Originally recorded by Róisín Murphy, the song was too poppy for her. Thank god Sophie recorded it, it's perfect for her sound.

08. I'm Not Your Toy - La Roux
La Roux is burning up the UK Charts and this song is another great track, not as shrill as their previous singles.

09. Get Sexy - Sugababes
I hated this song at first but it's just too catchy to resist!

10. Je Suis Une Dolly (Me and Mrs Jones Extended) - Dolly Rockers
Brand new track from a new UK girl group. They really churn them out across the pond, eh?

11. Paparazzi (Demo Mix) - Lady Gaga
This mix brings a "rock" feel to what already is a brilliant track.

12. Fixin' to Thrill - Dragonette
Dragonette's new single, again bringing their signature dirty pop - "Go on and show me that you know how to use it and do your duty."

13. Lisztomania - Phoenix
New French Band - with the best album name ever: "Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix"

14. I Do Not Hook Up - Kelly Clarkson
It's just good.

15. Kind of A Girl - Tinted Windows
Featuring Jimmy Iha and Taylor from HANSON. Who knew?

16. Eh, Eh (Bollywood Remix) - Lady Gaga
Gaga meets Bollywood? Yes please!

Ru-Mix: I Got You Dancing

By the cover you can tell this mix was meant to come out in late June but life got in the way. Oh well. Here's a really fun house mix that will still get you groovin' through the summer!

Ru-Mix: I Got You Dancing

01. Evacuate The Dancefloor - Cascada
Cascada is back with a song that, according to Darren Hayes, is about farting.
02. LoveGame (Party Rock Remix) Feat. LMFAO - Lady GaGa
LMFAO lends his signature rap to this track to bring it to a new level.
03. The Girl And The Robot (Ocelot Remix) - Röyksopp, feat. Robyn
Ocelot has been turning out some amazing mixes, remember that Killers "Human" mix?
04. Jai Ho (Dave Ramone & Chris Montana Mix) - A.R. Rahman
PCD-free, this brings us back to the original with a tribal beat
05. Love Takes Over (Samman's 'Boom Boom' Club Mix) - David Guetta feat. Kelly Rowland
The song of the summer has so many incarnations, this one is still my favorite.
06. Say It - Booty Luv
I still can't believe these girls are called Booty Luv and are successful but the music does speak for itself.
07. She Ain't Got (Dave Aude Radio Edit) - LeToya Luckett
Woo LeToya! Even though you are Destiny Fail you can still turn it out, better than Michelle can!
08. Sweet Dreams (Looi Collins & Fred Portelli Remix) - Beyoncé
Beyoncé is a robotic tranny in this video. I'm glad she released the song though so we could get this fun remix.
09. Gifted (Steve Aoki Remix) - N.A.S.A. (feat Kanye West, Lykke Li & Santigold)
Who knew that a mashup/collaboration like this would work so well?!
10. I Gotta Feelin' (David Guetta Remix) - Black Eyed Peas
David Guetta (who produced the original) removes Fergie's annoying "Mazel Tov's" to make this song much more bearable.
11. Billie Jean (Offer Nissim Remix) - Michael Jackson
The King will certainly be missed, R.I.P. Offer brings this amazing classic into the new millenium.
12. Heartbeat (Sanno Solavas Bootleg Edit) - Madonna
Sanno Solavas is Rafael Lelis' pseudoname. Probably b/c "Heartbeat" will never be released as a single. I didn't care much for the original but again this track exemplifies the wonders of the remix.
13. Remedy (Crimes Against Disco Remix) - Little Boots
I cannot get enough of Little Boots! Dancing should be everyone's remedy :)
14. On My Shoulders (WILDLIFE! Remix) - The Dø
Never did I imagine I would enjoy a remix of this, especially since I fell in love with the haunting original (on RMV20), but here I am with my foot in my mouth.
15. Bulletproof (Foamo Remix) - La Roux
This song is one of my most played, and my personal anthem moving forward.
16. I Got You Dancing! (Jack Beats Remix) - Lady Sovereign
A dirty dirty remix that will get you movin' just like Lady Sovereign says.

Ru-Mix: Tell Me What You Want

Although my music tastes tend to fall on the pop / house side I do enjoy my fair share of hip-hop. It must come from Hema & Aarti, my best friends in college who definitely enjoy their "dirty south" music. Anyway, this mix here is definitely rooted in hip-hop & r&b. The tracklist is below, in the past the hip hop ru-mixes have been appreciated (RMV19 and RMV13) so I hope you enjoy this one as well.

Ru-Mix: Tell Me What You Want?

01. D.O.A. - Jay Z
Jay-Z proclaims the "death of autotune" in a really great hard hitting rap track.
02. Boom Boom Boom (ft. Kid Cudi) - BEP
Just when you start to get over Boom Boom Pow, Kid Cudi lends his magic touch to make this an all out booty-bumpin track. Fun stuff.
03. Obessed - Mariah Carey
Really, she has me from the opening line: "I was like, why're you so obsessed with me?"
04. W.F.Y. - Electrik Red
Electrik Red is quickly becoming one of my favorite groups, this song has become an anthem of sorts for many. Enjoy the raunch.
05. Imma Be - BEP
BEP's new album is solid gold. I had to resist putting more than 2 tracks on this mix!
06. Physical - Nicole Sherzinger
An unreleased gem from Nicole, produced by Timbaland and Keri Hilson - "gonna work your body like some cardio!"
07. Turntables - Ciara
Ci-Ci samples A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire) and it works. As much as I like the original, this is quite enjoyable as well. Too bad it probably won't be a single due to Chris Brown's current infamity.
08. I Did it for Love - BoA
Woo Asian goodness. This girl can really dance!
09. How Do You Sleep (ft. Ludacris) - Jesse McCartney
My cousins are really into Jesse McCartney. I never took notice (except for that awesome MSTRKRFT Remix of Leavin' on RMSE: Please Don't Stop the Music) until this track. I think it's Luda that makes it work for me.
10. Down (ft. Lil Wayne) - Jay Sean
Lil Wayne is on every track out there so its inevitable the brown kids get in on it. Cute song.
11. Falling Down (feat. Paradiso Girls) - Space Cowboy
Space Cowboy! This one is a banger for sure.
12. I'll House You ('09 Mix by Treasure Fingers) - Kid Sister
Treasure fingers rework this classic with Kid Sister. All I have to say is...
13. Work (ft. Missy) - Ciara
Work work work work!
14. Patron Tequila (Space Cowboy Mix) - Paradiso Girls
"By the end of this song Ima have you drunk and throwing up" As gross as it sounds this song will still get your booty bumpin'
15. Goodbye - Kristinia DeBarge
The End.

Ru-Mix: New Faux Disco

This is a special mix I made for Patrick Sandora's blog. Pat is a friend of mine that asked me to guest blog as part of his Summer Friday Series. Naturally I had to make a mix to go along with my exposition on disco music. Click here to check out my post, and at the bottom you'll find a link to the mix I made. Now this mix is a little different from others at it is a seamless track, about 45 minutes long, and also is supposed to be an "introduction" to the Ru-Mix for those that haven't heard them before (hence some repeat tracks). The tracklist is below.

Ru-Mix: New Faux Disco

01. Music Inferno - Madonna
02. Disco Heaven - Lady Gaga
03. Disco in My Car - Suzy Ray
04. Cross the Dancefloor (Chromeo Mix) - Treasure Fingers
05. Rock With You - Michael Jackson
06. Loba - Shakira
07. I'm That Chick - Mariah Carey
08. Love Stoned (Femi Fem 7" Mix) - Justin Timberlake
09. Love Lockdown (My Dear Disco Remix) - Kanye West

11. Question Existing (Wideboys Edit) - Rihanna
12. Miles Away (Disco Mix) - Madonna

Ru-Mix: Untouchable

This mix is more low key, definitely emotion filled, nice for a rainy day or on your way home from a night out on the town. The songs are pop-tastic but still manage to tug at the heartstrings. Enjoy. :)

Ru-Mix: Untouchable


01. Elevator - Pussycat Dolls - written by Lady Gaga, this is a sweet song by the usually raunchy PCD
02. Apple and Cinnamon - Utada - Utada brings her quirky lyrics to another level
03. Dead and Gone - Justin Timberlake & T.I. - It's been around for a while but still quite good.
04. Water and a Flame - Daniel Merriweather feat. Adele - A beautiful collaboration
05. Epilepsy is Dancing - Antony & The Johnsons - Unique voice, unique lyrics... especially the "cut me in quadrants" bit.
06. Heart Never Had A Hero - Toni Braxton - Oh Toni... amazing song, I wish the video had a superhero theme
07. Tidal Wave - The Killers - A bonus track that is better than anything else on the album
08. Everblue - Mandy Moore - Mandy is back, folksy as ever
09. Must Be Love (Feat. Diddy) - Cassie - As trite as Cassie is this song still is sure to be a hit
10. Ego (Remix feat. Kanye West) - Beyonce - Beyonce, what exactly are you talking about? ;)
11. Click (Ruff Mix) - Little Boots - We've all felt like this before, havent we?
12. Lay Me Down (with Kleerup) - Cyndi Lauper - Kleerup lends his magical touch for an amazing collaboration with Cyndi
13. Miss it So Much (with Lykke Li) - Royksopp - Lykke Li + Royksopp = Perfection!
14. Never Go Home Again - RuPaul - I'm amazed I like a RuPaul song but this has a great message and the production is on the same level as Robyn's "With Every Heartbeat"
15. God Given Name (Soulshock & Kerlin Mix) - Solange - My personal favorite, great message, go get'em Solange.
16. Untouchable - Girls Aloud - "Without any meaning, we're just skin and bone, like beautiful robots, dancing alone." Definitely one of my favorite lyrics of 2009.

Ru-Mix: I'm Not Alone

This is another house mix but it has a different type of energy than "In For the Kill," it's a little more... melancholy? At least at first, it is. There's definitely a story here if you listen in order, and it also features my favorite new artist, Fred Falke and his amazing remixes.

Ru-Mix: I'm Not Alone


01. Love Don't Dance Here Anymore - Tiga - This song is just epic, the piano introducion is brilliant but when the beats come in you can just picture yourself pouring your heart out on the dancefloor

02. Heavy Cross (Fred Falke Mix) - The Gossip - The original single is just ok, but Fred Falke brings this to another level

03. Wrong (Rauhofer Mix) - Depeche Mode - Peter Rauhofer turns it out. WORK.

04. Black and Gold (Steve Pitron and Max Sanna Mix) - Sam Sparro - An oldie but the best remix I've heard of this song about searching for spirituality

05. Hearbreaker - MSTRKRFT feat. John Legend - MSTRKRFT's remix of Greenlight was one of my favorites last year, it's good to see them collaborating again

06. Halo (New Devices Mix) - Beyonce - Halo didn't get as big as I thought it would (Leona should have held on to it!) but I would love to dance to this mix some day.

07. If This Isn't Love (Stonebridge Mix) - Jennifer Hudson - Just a very sweet song

08. Love Etc. (Gui Boratto Mix) - Pet Shop Boys - One of my favorite songs of this year, very inspiring.

09. Eh, Eh (Pet Shop Boys Mix) - Lady Gaga - PSB + Gaga, a match made in heaven

10. Anthonio (Fred Falke Mix) - Annie - A completely different mix from the Designer Drugs one, Fred Falke highlights Annie's desperation

11. Miles Away (Rauhofer Part 3 Mix) - Madonna - Rauhofer will always know how to WORK Madonna

12. Come Back to me (Quentin Harris Mix) - Utada - A cute complementary song to Miles Away

13. Zero (N.A.S.A. Bloody Lobo Mix) - Yeah Yeah Yeahs - This song is quickly getting very overplayed but this remix is refreshing

14. New In Town (Fred Falke Mix) - Little Boots - Fred Falke, 'nuff said.

15. Solid Gold - Golden Filter - "...Make it Solid Gold," and they did.

16. I'm Not Alone (Deadmau5 Mix) - Calvin Harris - I really hope this song gets big... it's too amazing to be ignored.

RMV24: Electronic Poet

First of all, sorry all of the Ru-Mixes are coming out of order... the truth is I made the covers before the mixes were ready. Also, wanted to apologize for sending so much out so quickly - When I took the break I was still making my mixes for myself and I still want to share - want to make sure I send it out before it gets (too) stale.

Anyway, here we have a mix that's more in the same vein of Movie Star, but brings it to a whole different level. If you're a fan of acoustic guitars, soft sounds, breathy vocals - this mix is NOT for you. As the title implies all the songs have an electronic touch and some of them have been ripped apart and are barely recognizeable from their non-remixed original versions. I LOVE this mix. It's dark, dirty, poppy, and glam all at the same time. I live for it at the gym, at home when I'm getting ready, driving around (when I do)... etc. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

For those that are anticipating a "normal" (dance / pop / not too electro) Ru-Mix, keep a watch on your inbox for Ru-Mix Vol.23: Quicksand, coming soon.

As always, favorite tracks are in bold

Ru-Mix Vol. 25: Dil Dance Maare Re

Oh boy, Bollywood music was quite depressing as of late, fortunately I've been able to quite a few tracks over the last 2 years... that will help you have a rocking bollywood party, or at least if you want to just dance around mad in your bedrooom :) The beginning of the mix is definitely more traditional, colorful Bollywood fare, while halfway thru the "club mixes" creep up to keep you moving. Overall it's a fun mix... If anyone is in NYC I'll be at Sholay next week hopefully dancing to some of these tunes - come by if you're ready to DANCE :)

Ru-Mix Special Edition: Movie Star

Ru-Mix Special Edition: Movie Star


Clearly if you look at the tracklist below this mix isnt' for everyone, hence the "Special edition" moniker. This mix is definitely heavy on beats (if the 10 minute opening track is any indication) but it's a really fun party mix or for the gym. I like it because it starts on the darker side and then get's bubbly and poppy towards the end. It's a bit on the long side (over 2 hrs long) but if you have the time definitely give it a listen from beginning to end I think it flows well and will definitely get your booty shaking. Have fun kids, this mix is one of my favorites! Comments always appreciated.

Some of these songs have been on rotation on my iPod since October of 2007. Sorry I'm just getting them to you now but its better late than never!

Anyway, this time I'm back with a "chill" mix. I've been listening to it for a while now and I'm really digging it. Its just a little bit under 2hours long so its perfect background music while entertaining, hanging out etc. It's quite soothing on the subway as well.

The title track has two versions, the album version and the Kleerup (of "With Every Heartbeat" fame) remix... make sure your iPod is set to "gapless" playback and it will blend the two into a perfect, "happy ending." Because we all really need one... (I was a little down while making this mix so I apologize for its shades of melancholy).

Ru-Mix Vol. 10: Bolly-licious

Ru- Mix Vol. 10: Bolly-licious

It's so delicious. LoL. Anyway, I'm back with a hot new bollywood mix, this time focusing on different genres (not a qawalli in sight!). The cool thing is you can put this mix and Ru-Mix Vol. 5: Fanaa on the Dancefloor on the same playlist, hit shuffle and have yourself a rocking Bollywood Party! I feel like on this mix I've showcased some very unique but mainstream voices -- much more different than your typical Bollywood film (oh Alka Yagnik, just stop) and way more fun. Anyway, tracklist is below -- enjoy!

1. Beedi Jalai Le
the hottest song of 2006 -- Sunidhi Chauhan sounds great on this track. The chorus roughly translates to: "Light a beedi with the fire from the heart, if there isn't enough fire at home then go get it from the neighbors..." full lyric translations can be found here.
2. Mayya Mayya
the "humma humma" of 2007, this song has a great Turkish flavor. Composer A.R. Rahman (Bombay Dreams) gives us a real treat
3. Bure Bure
keeping with the Turkish theme, this is a fun boy's song where the chorus roughly translates to "Hey, we're (naughty) devils, no one can escape us"
4. Ni Main Samajh Gayee
an old song, but highly underrated... i absolutely love A.R. Rahman's compisitions and Richa Sharma's sultry voice does this song wonders
5. Hitchki (Akbar Sami Mix)
finally, my favorite contemporary Indian singer, Sonu Kakkar (also on Fanaa...), is back with a hot new item number. the song is done in a typical Marathi folk style -- i think she's singing about her love making her heart skip a beat (literally - hiccup).
6. Ishq ka Tadka
Adnan Sami has one of the most unique voices in Hindi playback today, as does his companion in this sexy number, Sonu Kakkar. The title translates to "A Piece of Love"
7. Sajnaji Vari Vari
Sunidhi Chauhan is riding the radio waves in Mumbai right now with this hot track about how much she loves her darling
8. O Sikander
Sonu Kakkar and Kailash Kher really rock this song -- ok its a qawwalli but i had to sneak at least one in!
9. Aika Dajiba
Vaishali Samant sings anohter typical Marathi folk song -- they're really fun to watch on video as well... I don't really understand Marathi but from what I've read this song is about a very strong man (with a big mustache).
10. Crazy Kiya Remix
i didn't really like this song at first, but then when Ashwariya Rai danced to this hot number in Dhoom:2, I was instantly addicted.
11. Main Deewana (G-Mix)
Dancer/Choreographer Ganesh Hegde tries his hands at singing and gives us a very Usher/Justin Timberlake-y track with enough desi spin to call it his own
12. Meter Down
Adnan Sami is back with a hilarious and hot new song about how money makes the world go 'round
13. Dhoom Again
many of you have heard the song song, Dhoom Dhoom, from Ru-Mix Vol. 1: Take Me Out, this is the follow up to that song and the hindi original. I also didn't like it at first, but then i saw this. and this.
14. Kiss Me Baby
another fun Adnan Sami song -- this one about how "Hot n' Spicy" (Garam Masala) the ladies are
15. Baan Far Kay
yes, I just plain love JoSH. and I think it's so cool that they collaborate with Nelly Furtado so much. (also check out RMV7, and RMV8 for their Promiscuous and Maneater remixes)
16. Right Here Right Now (Dhol Mix)
Actor Abhishek Bachan tries his hand at singing(?) this hip hop influenced song. I think the Dhol beat is what steps up its lieability for me.
17. Teri Masti
JoSH and Rishi Rich collaboration -- really hot Bhangra-ish track.
18. Babuji Zara Dheere Chalo (Bijli Mix)
The original "folk" mix is on Fanaa. Here's Sonu Kakkar at her raunchiest--just how we like her, Dirrty like Christina used to be.
19. Ya Ali (Suketu Mix)
This song is completely lifted off of an Arabic track -- oh well, it's still hot.
20. Aa Bhi Jaa
Sonu Kakkar and Ganesh Hegde are perfect for this song about yearning. This is my dream song to choreograph -- it would be so much fun. Anyone interested dancing to it?
21. Billo (Lounge Mix)
Sunidhi Chauhan rocks this mellow beat with a little help from musical genius Ustad Sultan Khan.
22. Bindu re Bindu
I love this guys voice. Unfortunately I have no idea who the singer is. This is a cover/remix of a song from the 1960's film: Padosan
23. Chaandi Ke Teri Surmedaani
Brand new track. Sonu Kakkar (yes again) guest stars over a hot dance beat with Sukwinder Singh handling the reins.
24. Beedi (Suketu Mix)
The hottest remix of the hottest song of 2005. (see above)
