Scientiae Est Potestas

Salve Amici! Hic est NiteShade! (Hello Friends! this is NiteShade!) For those of you who DON'T know what that language is, its Latin and, yes, I do take Latin Courses in High School (Im not very talented with it though. Its an incredibly difficult language to master >.>) And yes, the title is also in Latin, but im not telling you what that means, unless you feel like revealing it on the comments page. Just a little bit of interesting info for you guys there. Anyways, I am officially on Winter Break and have been so since last friday, which means you'll be seeing more posts from me soon enough ;) Let's start off with some interesting tracks, shall we?

First off we have some South African deep house(or Afro Deep House if you want to be less specific)from an artist named Black Coffee. The track, promptly named Juju, has a simply lovely drum beat involving what sounds like a bit of congo drums, and a powerfully smooth synth with even more hypnotic vocals. Once you hear that repetitive sound of "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh Mannnnn", you will have completely fallen in love with this track.

This next track should definitely be familiar to anyone who has listened to Evil Stereo before, especially a certain demo track on Youtube that is named "Girls Of Old Town". Thanks to some indirect help from a Mr. Stephen Johnson on facebook, I found the track Evil had sampled for the vocal portion of the song. The track's name is "Are You (Watching me, Watching you)" by Syke 'N' Sugarstarr. Who are they? Hell if I know. But what I do know is that this song is fantastic. Enjoy it.

Next up, we have the Planetary Lobby Version of Digitalism's Jupiter Room. Its a rougher, grittier, and more repetitive version of the normal track, not to mention a bit darker. Its catchy, Nite likes it.

Next off is a track from Moguai, and its quite possibly the heaviest I have ever heard from him. Titled, "We Want Your Soul", this track starts off a bit odd, but eventually starts kicking off with a huge burst of epicness at around 1 minute or so. The heavy vocal sound chopping and the heavier beat makes you want to bang your head off and go a bit crazy. Its huge, its sexy, and by all that is holy, I can't help but love this track.

Oh and just because Wippenberg is awesome:

And for those who love Tech House like I do:

And to top it all off: A brilliant remix of La Roux by AN21.

Happy holidays to All and 100 NiteShade Points to anyone who gets the reference of the Picture and how it links to a certain holiday.

Veni Vidi Vinci,

Saturnalia is the Roman winter solstice festival that a lot of our Christmas traditions are based off of.

Scieniae est potestas means Knowledge is power.

I took Latin in middle school :)

Also, is there a particular reason you tagged Evil Stereo in this post? You didn't put in any of his songs...

Great post, though you got something wrong in it: Evil Stereo did not sample Syke N Sugarstarr. This is a cover/remix of the original song he sampled. ;D
