Following up on Tiësto’s Kaleidoscope we come across the “Feel it” video, some might consider it a little controversial not because of nudity, language, or obscene content but because it mixes big players of 2 different genres. Tiësto one of the biggest “electronic” DJs of today and Hip Hop artist Three 6 Mafia, Sean Kingston, & Flo Rider all big names in their own right. Recently you might have heard a lot of electronic beats in hip hop music but not this level of compilation. When I first heard of this joint venture I honestly expected something terrible but was very pleasantly surprised. I suggest you listen with open ears and mind then you decide for yourself. Here at EvilStar we give it 2 Thumbs up.
For as much as I enjoyed the recent release from world renown DJ/Producer Tiesto, I am overwhelmed with the mass appeal it actually has potential for. It is truly a testament to how much electronic music has truly crossed over into the mainstream market. This has been apparent for years in countries abroad, but shockingly, it’s until now, America is finally catching up with the trend. Most of this could be due to the crumbling infrastructure of the formally all powerful “Record Industry” and the paradigm shift leaning toward a more independent distribution of music. Yet to see more familiar names like Nelly Furtatdo, and Tegan and Sara as collaborators is exciting, but I begin to wonder where all this is going when you start to see more and more collaborations just for the sake of having collaborations. It has been announced Tiesto is to be collaborating with even more mainstream artist like the Three 6 Mafia, Sean Kingston, and Flo Rida. This is just my opinion but I have heard the track “Feel It” and wasn’t very impressed. I still have hope though, through their methods of promoting the track they have released a means for aspiring remixers to take hold of parts of the track via Beatport.com and I anticipate it might generate some positive results but we’ll just have to see.
