SONG OF THE DAY: Starkillers, Dmitry KO & Amba Shepherd – “Let the Love”

Here’s a truly international collaboration – American Nick Terranova (aka Starkillers teaming up with Dutch producer Dmitry KO and Australian vocalist Amba Shepherd.  The resulting track, “Let the Love,” is quite strong and catchy, starting softly with a repeating keyboard hook and Amba’s voice as the focus. Softly the beat comes in and begins to build and build until the dramatic fill that crescendoes to a big room stadium house sound similar to Swedish House Mafia begins.  It’s no surprise that this track already has major support from the big guys like Afrojack, Tiesto, Hardwell, and Sander Van Doorn.   Since you probably already know about Starkillers (check out his recent track with Bl3nd “Xception”) and Amba Shepherd (on a roll with massive collaborations with Dyro, Hardwell, and Giuseppe Ottavianni), take a moment and listen to tracks on Dmitry KOs Soundcloud page ( – his mixes of Gabrielle Aplin and Rammstein are both quite hot.  As great as the song is, the video is quite funny for its unintentional camp value.   The young couple is in love but their secret lives threaten to tear them apart – the girl moonlights as an erotic dancer styled to look like a crossdresser, while the boy is either a rent boy or a drug dealer and gets pushed around by Mr Terranova in a campy cameo role. When the boy and girl see each other in their alternate lifestyle costumes there is conflict, but they “let the love” bring them together.   I guess that I am the only one who doesn’t appreciate the masterful work of cinema as the comments on Youtube channel are overwhelmingly positive.

SONG OF THE DAY: Starkillers & Bl3nd – “Xception”

While I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a “Bl3nder” (an obsessesed fan of DJ Bl3nd),  I have been enjoying watching videos of the gruesomely-masked guy as he unleashes sick electro DJ mixes with him dancing.  His “Berserk” video was perfectly-timed for Halloween and just as twisted as you imagine.  Imagine a guy wearing a twisted Chuckie (evil doll, not Dirty Dutch DJ) mask with the frenetic energy of Insane Clown Posse and Steve Aoki making tracks like Wolfgang Gartner and R3hab to get an idea. The new track “Xception,” with Starkillers, manages to keep that intense and aggressive electro edge while smoothing it out with a few progressive breaks.  Don’t worry, the frantic bleeps and sick chainsaw energy is still there but made a little bit more palatable for bigger club crowds.   If you haven’t already discovered DJ Bl3nd, definitely check out his YouTube page.
