Kastra’s harmonious vocal-barrage and the odd twinkle-ball of disco sparkle have resulted in an abundant and overflowing flood of expert chord progression - and lashings of cast iron reverb in all the right places. Taking a broad and inspired look from most sections of the progressive globe (and his hard drive vault), Kastra retains and sustains his devastating rhythm of choice across many 2012 and staple favourites. The future, present and the past have all been represented admirably. Alphabeat - Love Sea (Kastra Remix) Zedd feat. Foxes - [...]
Screw Black and the Friday it rode in on — shop local: ► Best way to work off whatever you gorged on Thanksgiving Day might be to hit up Afrojack tonight at the Palladium.

Clearly, Lil Wayne didn't take Chris' letter to heart. As TMZ reports , Tunechi appears on a Paris Hilton song which is actually called "I Wanna Bang", dishing out bars like "Excuse my french, but f**k the cameras / I wanna spend a night in Paris." Not even the song's producer, EDM heavyweight Afrojack , could save this.
Yesterday we posted in regards to Afrojack getting the exclusively endorsed by Psy to remix 'Gangnam Style' .

Although Afrojack just announced that he would be remixing Psy's "Gangnam Style," it seems that work on the remix has already begun. In a video from last night's show at the Chicago Theatre, the infamous lyrics are present but the over played beat is not. Afrojack has replaced the melody with his signature Dutch bleeps and grinding basslines to create the lasting rework he was going for. We're not sure if this will be the final version but it is a nice teaser to hold us over until the final remix is released. [...]
