Last week Pete Tong featured the brand new Avicii track on BBC Radio 1, it was the world premiere. The song entitled Wake Me Up, features Aloe Blacc on vocals and is the first single from Avicii’s upcoming album.
I’ll be playing the track on my show tonight on Good Hope FM – Mix Revolution from 11pm. Tune in!
Rude World Records does it again, and this time with a deep house track from The Rude Boys.
The track is called Bleeding Sunshine. Released just under a week ago, co-produced with Mischa Kumi, vocals by Ruby Burton, and the brilliant Matthew O’Connell on sax.
A very mellow, yet incredibly moving deep house track. Perfect lyrics and soulful vocal, polished off with a tight saxophone solo.

The Rude Kid Carnival took place at Casablanca last month on 26 April 2013, with all the Rude World artists performing under one roof on one night. I was pleased to MC the event and introduce Jerain, Ruby Burton, Jimmy Nevis, Matthew O ‘Connell, Kita, Nonku and The Rude Boys all to stage for a special one hour showcase.
Here is the video, highlighting what an amazing night was had!

Although there have been a fair amount of goat videos making the rounds, I’m not at all convinced that this edit of Daft Punk has any merit. Why internet, why?!
Personally, I’d much rather watch a Taylor Swift or Ke$ha goat edit.
Here’s the official video for Get Lucky. First single from Daft Punk’s upcoming album Random Access Memories. Much better!
Matthew O’ Connell, singer/saxophonist, and Rude World Productions recently shot an incredible acoustic video for MOC’s first official single Take It Slow at Cape Town Sound. The video features Matthew himself on vocals and alto sax, Angelo Syster on guitar, beatboxer Richie Pratt, drummer Frank Paco and the very fortunate Mocsters Hana Kabat and Razaan Philips who won a special cameo beside Mr MOC. Congratulations on a job very well done to the producers and stars of the video, Angelo Syster and Matthew O ‘Connell!
Take It Slow was released earlier this year, and immediately won the hearts of Capetonians and fans everywhere, including mine. To listen to Take It Slow, as well as more of Matthew O ‘Connell’s music, visit his soundcloud page http://www.soundcloud.com/MatthewOConnell
A fine musical career that began at the age of 6, Matthew was signed to Rude World Records in 2012, and since then, a lot more people have been pleasantly taken aback at hearing his unique talent as a singer and saxophonist. You might be convinced you don’t like the saxophone, until you hear MOC perform. Trust me, Matthew is the most talented 21 year old I know!

Kaskade shares his experience at Ultra Music Festival 2013. It really is an emotional video, in a good way. He describes how electronic music has become a global feeling, how the festival has changed over the past 15 years he’s been involved and what a a nice guy he is for filling Calvin Harris’ spot. The track halfway through is his new release Atmosphere. Kaskade has also released his set at UMF for free download. Good on him, that’s how it’s done!
