Ok – New Year’s Resolution (besides that whole — I’m going to diet & go to the gym every day mentality. How about do what makes me HAPPY. Every day is filled with stresses, schedules, and responsibilities, so why not add some happy flavor! Yes, I created this phrase to never forget that I must do something every day that makes me happy! I made a promise to myself that this year I am going to find songs that make me happy — you know the ones that automatically bring a smile to your face (or the ones that instantly give you that “Wow I want to dance on a table” feeling — just not in the office.) Whatever it is I hope you find your happy flavor and that these songs will get you started!

For those house, progressive, electronic, and trance music lovers anxiously awaiting one of the biggest national music festivals, the week of the Electric Daisy Carnival is upon us! Friday June 25 and Saturday June 26 the Colliseum in downtown Los Angeles will be exploding with 5 stages, carnival rides, food, people dressed up in what I like to call “Halloween-like” costumes (yeah – you know why), and most importantly – some of the most prominent and talented DJs in the world. Last year’s EDC was definitely an experience to be had (I still can’t get over people’s outfits – or should I say costumes). Luckily for my group of friends, we had purchased VIP tickets and didn’t have to be crushed in a sea of crazies. I had such an amazing time last year and still have my souvenir “MUSIC IS MY DRUG” t-shirt! I can’t wait until Friday!
Some of the top headliners:
Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Kaskade, Chuckie, Dirty South, Afrojack, DJ Sets: Moby, Basement Jaxx, BT (Live)
Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Benny Benassi, Will.I.Am, Laidback Luke, Afrojack, Bart B More, Dada Life, Sasha, Fedde Le Grand, Roger Sanchez, James Zabiela, Chuckie, Avicii, Boys Noize, DJ Set: Groove Armada

Sometimes it’s about letting go…not thinking, not analyzing, & definitely not being so serious. (Common, we all need that once in a while) 🙂 With that said, the list for today hardly needs an introduction. The songs are all relatively new releases, they’re club bangers, & trust me – you will love them… so enjoy!
