Being in one of the most successful and popular pop music duos in decades must be a rough life, right? I mean, one look at the legacy of LMFAO singles and it’s clear these guys have lived a life of struggle and hard earned success. “Shots,” “Party Rock,” and of course, “I’m In Miami Trick,” all convey relatable tales of the working man rising above the daily grind to achieve better things.
Just kidding. These guys love to party and we all know it, so it should come as no surprise that their solo albums are showcasing much of the same.
Last week we brought you the debut of “Bring Out The Bottle,” the debut solo single from LMFAO’s Redfoo, and this week we have the first track from the other have of the group, SkyBlu. His single, coincidentally entitled “Pop Bottles,” carries a similar party heavy vibe as Redfoo’s and features a guest appearance from Mark Rosas. You can stream the song below.
While some fans may have worried the hiatus of LMFAO meant the duo would be heading in separate sonic directions, the debut singles from Redfoo and SkyBlu tell a very different story. If anything, it looks like we’re in for even more party anthems in 2013 as a result of the members working individually. Stay tuned for more information on their solo careers in the coming weeks.

Electronic dance music generally tends to be written off as a genre where the “heard one, heard them all” rule applies. As is the case with most generalizations, this sentiment is untrue”especially here in OurStage. The melodies, hooks, cultural influences, rhythmic interplays and production characteristics of each song are so unique and varied that everyone (literally, everyone) can find a style of electronic dance music which they like. We’ve gathered samples from the most prominent regions in our Electronica and Dance y Electrónica Channels and highlighted a select number of tracks that you would be nothing short of a fool to ignore. So light up your strobes and prep your subs; we’re gonna have a good time.
“I Will Be” – Yuliya Strizhkina feat. Eximinds Project: If we were to review this song in a single sentence taken from her bio it would be this: “Yuliya Strizhkina was born in Russia.” And I think we just did. Listen to the song and you’ll know what we mean.
“Voices” – M. Visions and CtaSOK: Even though this crossover house duo isn’t European, their music has the Euro blend to it that is just unmistakable. The traditional four-on-the-floor and spacey female vocals are all there, but the orchestrated synth sounds and the processing effects give it an American club-style edge to it that you’ll enjoy.
“Te Quema El Sol” – Carlo Secreto: Latino swagger just oozes from this tropical jam. The energy and sensuousness of Caribbean music is unrivaled, so it isn’t surprising that this type of music is popular the world over.
“Ella Es” – Kings of Flow: This track has an interesting mix”a faster-paced reggaeton feel with ’90s electronic pop rhythm lines and vocal melodies. “Ella Es” brings a notoriously outdated sound and breathes new life into it with Latin flow.
“Dos XX (Dos Equis)” – Circuit Assassins: If LMFAO and Skrillex collaborated to do a hit club song, it would sound something like this. These guys don’t mind making their influences obvious, and it’s better that way. There’s some clear similarities to what their idols do, but Circuit Assassins keep it fresh and original.
“Rat99” – CMG: Dirty, fizzy bass lines and extreme compression that makes the track pulsate with the beat are the trademarks of a good track to drop in the most energetic point of your club night. A must-have in any of your party playlists.
“Road 2 Nowhere” – The Polymuse: Popularized in the United States by acts such as Rí¶yksopp and The Knife, this style of female vocal-oriented upbeat electropop has found an ever-expanding market in the club scene.
