We are all guilty of having a case of the Monday's every once in a while. When your gearing up for the weekend ahead, it's best to accompany those thoughts with some energetic tunes. This week's playlist is compiled of huge dance tracks (old and new) that will make your week just a little bit better.
1. Ellie Goulding-I Need Your Love (Feat. Calvin Harris): This track is just destined to be a club anthem for the coming year. Harris' mellifluous producing skills shine alongside Gouldings vocals. The release date is set for the US soon!
2. Martin Solveig- The Night Out (Madeon Remix): Anything Madeon touches is just pure music bliss. At such a young age, he has proved to be a bulldozing force in the EDM world and has done it with such ease.
As part of Joonbug's weekly series of rising DJ's/producers to watch out for, this week, Yung Skeeter is at the top of our playlist. Formerly known as DJ Skeet Skeet, the LA based producer has been in the music game for the last five years from spinning parties to producing beats for artists like Chris Brown and Azealia Banks.
Just recently, Skeet supported close friend, Katy Perry, on her entire "California Dreams" tour and landed a gig at Spotify serving as their artist relations, which entails not only DJing but as a curator of music based upon his wide range of knowlege and culture.

Our favorite wild and crazy DJ duo, Dada Life, has released the date for their upcoming album, "The Rules Of Dada."

If you're looking for a diverse mix of brassy accessories to flaunt all over NYC, then Erin Yogasundram is who you need to get in touch with. Making serious moves as the owner of the online store, ShopJeen, she has already taken the steps needed to become a successful entrepreneur at the mere age of twenty one.
“I have always had my hand in fashion in one way or another,” she told us of her different fashion phases. “When I was 12 I really liked Good Charlotte so I would hang out at Trash & Vaudeville a lot. Then I went through an Abercrombie & Fitch phase. I have been all over the board and my style is constantly changing.”
Let's face it. Ombre is still in. Every one from celebs to street style stars donned the infamous darker roots and lighter ends look and it's crossing over into fashion. The question at hand is whether or not this trend will make it or be a flop in the fashion world. Is it a do or don't? We say it's a do--add a pop to those plain black tights!
The BZR shop on Etsy has these hand dipped ombre tights. You can find loud colors like orange and fuschia as well as netrual grey ones. These tights will create a fun twist to a dressy or casual outfit! Check out the other ombre styles, too!
Sevenly has created a new approach to helping the many charities of the world. Each week, for 7 days only, they feature a new charity through the sale of t-shirts. The shirts have different designs that reflect the cause each particular charity supports. Sevenly then sets a goal of sales where each person supporting can see how much has been donated and if the goal has reached or exceeded the starting amount.
Being that it is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sevenly's cause this week is the National Breast Cancer Foundation, who strive to help women in need get mammograms. The line features t-shirts for men and women as well as zip up hoodies and tote bags with the word "Courageous" embellished in cool prints and colors.
Just when we thought festival season was coming to an end, we now have a reassuring hope to gear up for our beloved music fests. Summer 2012 marked an insane schedule of worldwide music and art festivals and we never wanted it to end. But now (while some of us are enduring the winter season) we have The BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico as an excuse to plan a little getaway.
In it's sixth year, the BPM Festival is set to take place from Jan. 3-14, a totally necessary ten days of music madness. The fest will feature day and night showcases and will be a global gathering of highly sought after DJs and producers. The Phase 1 of the festival will include Carl Cox, Sasha, Nicole Moudaber, Luciano, Marco Carola, John Digweed and many, many more.
It's hard to believe that it's been one whole year since the debut of the Electric Beach series at Santos Party House. Recent headliners include the EC Twins, Tim Mason and this week celebrate with London based DJ, Mat Zo. This young producer is soaring with his no limits style and continues to thrive in a mix of different genres.
An impeccable choice, Mat Zo has become a leading artist in both the trance and drum & bass genres. He has even topped the Beatport charts in both genres at the same time. In the last 12 months alone, his tracks like “Bipolar”, “Superman,” and “Frequency Flyer” dominate the Beatport charts. Similarly, his French-house influenced remix of Above & Beyond’s “Thing Called Love” has found its way into the sets of A-Trak, Afrojack, Porter Robinson, Steve Aoki and Roger Sanchez.
