Lil Jon Ft. LMFAO- Drink (Extended Mix)

18 Feb

Saturday night festivities need Saturday night tunes.

Like it or not LMFAO have been at the forefront of providing us with the crowd pleasing, dance floor filling, sing a long hits that have been fuelling our weekends since Party Rock was released back in ’08.

They once again team up with Lil Jon for a follow up to Shots that is equally as simplistic and effective.

Beyoncé – End Of Time (The Dirty Tees Remix)

16 Feb

Following the career of The Dirty Tees has been one of the cooler backseat experiences I’ve had since starting this blog.

The guys have always been super talented and as their releases increased people started to take notice. Originally hailing from Oakville, Ontario the duo produced a remix of Natasha Bedingfield’s ‘Touch’ among other things in their first year. The track led to huge internet buzz and the songstress reached out to the guys. Suddenly they found themselves flying out to LA to work on some tracks with her and pursue a full time career in music. 

Flash forward a year and they are on the verge of taking things to the next level. A win in the Beyoncé remix competition would really help and with your vote we can make this happen.

Listen to their remix below and if you’re feeling it, go Vote and watch as one of Canada’s most exciting acts blows up.

Timbaland ft. Pitbull- Pass At Me (Tim Mason Remix)

18 Nov

Usually the mention of Pitbull makes my ears retract into my head and my hand immediately search for the radio dial but Tim Mason has made the unexpectable possible.

He transformed this top 40 hit into a club banger with his usual high energy driving basslines and tantalizing buildups. Another beauty to add to the weekend set list.

Go Buy Winter Forever – Seahaven

8 Nov

A lot of albums were released today, and a couple big ones leaked yesterday. But I think you should move all of those to the back burner and check out Seahaven. Their debut LP Winter Forever was released today and it has me blowing off those other new releases to get my pop punk fill.

This isn’t your regular fast paced pop punk. The melodies and guitar lines are similar but the vocals are slower and remind me a lot of The Junior Varsity (which is a HUGE compliment in my books).

You can stream Winter Forever below and if you like what you hear you should buy this record. On Seahaven’s Bandcamp page there are a couple package options, even one that features vinyl for all those purists out there.

Kings of Pop Punk – The Fresh Clothing Mixtape

8 Nov

Back in January, we brought you the Fresh Clothing Winter Mixtape that was jam packed with great bands and great tunes. It exposed me to the song Something Personal by Bright and Early that has stayed in my weekly rotation for going on eleven months now.

Well last week Fresh Clothing released another free mixtape. Kings of Pop Punk Mixtape features The Wonder Years, Title Fight and Transit just to name a few. This mixtape might have a better track list than the Winter tape which I loved so much.

You can stream the mixtape below as well you can download it for free. Enjoy and discover some new pop punk band.

Go Buy Neighbourhoods – Blink 182

27 Sep

So it’s Tuesday and that means that brand new music has hit the record stores. Now I think its quite obvious that the Go Buy album of the week is Blink 182’s Neighbourhoods. Their first album in eight years, and it is really the culmination of all the crazy things that have happened since their Self-Titled album was released in 2003.

Blink broke up, started other bands, fought publicly, produced, and almost died. But despite this they have buried the hatchet and come back with an outstanding album that sounds exactly what you would expect Blink 182 to sound like in 2011. The fart and poop jokes are gone and a more mature sound has emerged.

The first thing I picked up on was how much it sounds like Angels and Airwaves meets +44, which ironically is exactly what has happened. The original reason they went on hiatus was that Tom wanted some time off to do his own thing and expand with a different sound. Mark and Travis eventually did the same thing. Now that they are recording again it sounds as though they have made a compromise and put the sounds together to make something amazing.

There are some standout tracks on the album, including Natives, After Midnight, and MH 4.18.2011. Also you have to listen to the Hearts All Gone and the Interlude that leads into the track. It’s hard to explain but the whole album just works. It’s all I’ve been listening to for the last week (yes I got an advanced copy) and I love it more each time I hear the album.

Stream Natives and MH 4.18.2011 below and go out and buy this album. Just do it

Natives – Blink 182
MH 4.18.2011 – Blink 182

Best Music Video I’ve Seen In A Long Time – Fireworks – Arrows

23 Sep

This video is just plain awesome. Piñata people being chased by a crazy arrow carrying murderer. Vomiting and bleeding candy. What a great concept. The song that goes along with the video is really great as well. Arrows comes off the new Fireworks album Gospels which is now available from iTunes or your local record establishment. Check out the video above and convince your friends that a piñata is a must for your next party.

Stream And Download A New Man Overboard Track – Spunn

17 Sep

Man Overboard are set to release a new self-titled album on September 27th. They just released a new song stream and download of a song off the album. Spunn is the first track I’ve heard off the album and I really like it. It was produced by Steve from New Found Glory and has that early 2000’s pop punk feel.

You can click here to head to the Lost Tapes store to download this song for free. The download also comes with a guitar tab sheet, a lyric sheet and wallpapers for your computer and cell phone. Which is a pretty good deal if you ask me. If you like what you hear you should check Man Overboard out on tour this fall in support of New Found Glory on the Pop Punks Not Dead Tour.

I Really Thought I’d Posted The Hotel Year Earlier

15 Sep

I got an email today informing me that The Hotel Year had signed to Mightier Than Sword records and I knew that a post was in order. I have originally listened to The Hotel Year earlier in the year when I picked up It Never Goes Out from Bandcamp.

So when I went to write this post I searched for the post I had done when I originally heard the 9 song LP. But there was no post to be found. The album, along with the We Are Alone EP were in my iTunes but I guess I had never got around to giving them a post. Because of this I must send my apologies to our readers for not fulfilling my blogger duty to pass along the best new music as I find it.

Regardless Mightier Than Sword have decided to digitally reissue It Never Goes Out on October 11th. But until then you can stream the album below from their Bandcamp page. Enjoy.

Casiokids Have Me Wanting To Learn Norwegian

13 Sep

Ambassador Beats is branching out a bit. We want to start bringing our audience music that they may not otherwise have access to. I like to think we already do that by offering such a wide variety of musical genres in one place, but today I am really thinking outside the box.

I would like to introduce you to Casiokids. They are a band based out Norway and have an album coming out on October 11th entitled Aabenbaringen over Aaskammen. For those of you who don’t speak fluent Norwegian, it roughly translates to the revelation over the mountain.

This 10 song LP is some of the best indie pop rock I’ve heard in a while and it just so happens that you won’t understand a single word on the album. But that doesn’t take away from it at all. It is a strange sensation listening to music where you don’t understand what is being said.

I was lucky enough to get a listen to the album and was blow away. Each track is better than the last and there are a variety of different songs and styles on the record ranging from an orchestra style ballad on the opening track from which the album takes its name to an indie dance song in Golden Years.

You can listen to the first single from the album Det Haster! below and hopefully another track or two will drop before the release date a mont from now. I really enjoyed the album and I’m pretty sure you will too. Give it a chance and expose yourself to a new style of music, you’ll be glad you did. If you like what you hear you can pre-order the album here.

BRKFST Radio Episode 1: Elie’s Kitchen

3 Sep

This is apparently new Xaphoon Jones stuff but I really don’t know anything about it. Xaphoon retweeted something from @adamitkoff saying that this is an exclusive BRKFST Radio Episode 1. Other than that all I really know is that there is 69 minutes of music that has been mashed up and mixed together and it sounds outstanding.

You need to download this for yourself to really understand the greatness. Stream and download BRKFST Radio Episode 1 Elie’s Kitchen below and find out what it is for yourself.

Stream The Fueled By Ramen 15 Anniversary Compilation

23 Aug

It is almost hard to believe that Fueled By Ramen has been around for 15 years now. They have produced some of the biggest bands of the emo/pop punk genre and this compilation features both new and old songs that showcase some of their best artists.

I still remember my introduction to the Fueled By Ramen family when I bought Take This To Your Grave by Fall Out Boy back in 2003 from Sunrise Records in St. Thomas. It was a different time then when people still bought CD’s, but that CD introduced me to a lot of other great bands.

The 15th Anniversary Compilation is for sale from all digital record stores and is released in anticipation of the 15th Birthday celebration that’s taking place September 7th to 9th at the New York City Terminal 5.

Click Here to head  to the Alternative Press website to stream No Food, No Sleep, Just Records and click on Read More to check out the track list.

Delorean Remix Glasser’s Treasury Of We

22 Aug

I first wrote about Delorean almost a year ago after noticing there remixes all over Hypem.com.

Well today after going through the Ambassador Beats twitter feed I saw that Stereogum posted a brand new Delorean remix of Glasser’s Treasury Of We.

It kind of sounds like a 90’s disco dance song mixed with a Marky Mark sample and I can’t explain why but I can’t get enough of it! Check out the track below along with a free download link.

I’m A Goner – Andrew W.K., Matt & Kim and Soulja Boy

17 Aug

This might be the most random mix of artist to come together for a song in a long time. I’m A Goner is a collaboration of Soulja Boy, Matt & Kim and Andrew W.K. and it surprisingly turned out amazing. You can listen to the track below and if you like it, its being offered as a free download. It’s catchy and has a great beat so why not.

Called Out In The Dark Video – Snow Patrol

17 Aug

It’s funny how you come to discover albums that you love. I had been aware of Snow Patrol mostly from their hit radio singles, but I hadn’t ever listened to a full album. That is until I borrowed my Dad’s truck one day and looked through his CD selection in the centre console. There was a CD with no writing on it at all, so I thought I’d throw it in and give it a listen. I loved it, and it just happened to be Eyes Open. Ever since then I have kept a keen eye on Snow Patrol.

Today they released their new video for Called Out In The Dark, which is the first single from their new album Fallen Empires which is set to drop later this year. Check out the video above and stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
