For all of us Juniors in B-school, it has been quite a hectic semester. Nonetheless, I think I have raged harder this semester than any prior semester. Now that things are finally cooling down, I believe it is time to bring Mass Appeal NYC up to speed with the rest of the EDM world. So, here is a mix I (DJ Mass Appeal) made last week with DJ Dawood that rakes through some of the best tracks of the past month – listen, download, share, and rage on!!!

Revealed Recordings claims that this is going to be the song of the year. It’s a bit early to make such drastic assumptions but this track definitely has one of the most unique, dutch injected, blippy buildups that I have ever heard.
Revealed Recordings seems to have done my work for me:
With an unprecedented amount of artists seeking the formula for club-friendly absolution, Revealed Recordings proudly premiers their first secret weapon of the New Year — W&W and Ummet Ozcan’s ‘The Code’. It enters this week at #1 in the DMC buzz chart. http://bit.ly/Buzzchart ’The Code’ has been one of the tracks with the biggest buzz around for months.
Returning hot off the heels from their ‘Trigger’, Dutch duo W&W and their homeland counterpart Ummet Ozcan extend their fusion of Progressive Trance and Big Room club fuel. With W&W’s ‘Lift Off’ staying in the overall Beatport Top 10 for weeks and still holding top 10 in the prog house, it’s clear they are hitting all the right notes in between multiple genres.
As premiered at ADE and featured in Hardwell’s Essential Mix, this landmark collaboration sets aside the genre boundaries with intense force, fusing infectious synth hooks and peak stamina into an anthem capable of maximal floor damage right through to the summer festival season. ‘The Code’ sets the precedent to an all time high for Revealed’s output throughout 2013.
Out February 4th on Revealed Recordings

I hate to admit it but this song is going to be huge. I don’t know if it’s already taking over US radio stations but it is bound to happen…how did DJ Pauly D get a vocalist like Jay Sean…I’m astonished. This is actually produced extremely well and it has 20 plays on my iTunes already…other than Clarity (Acoustic Version), there haven’t been many songs in recent times that have propelled to double digits so quickly. Hopefully I have an ear for songs meant to gain mass appeal…this has to be one of them.
I proclaim Pauly D to be the least idiotic of the Jersey Shore crew…
Official Lyric Video:
DJ Pauly D saying some dumb stuff about his career…but he is working with Big Sean, 50 Cent and G-Unit.
What has the world come to?
Powerful, resonating, brilliant, reverberating, memorable, raunchy, addictive, reminiscent, and crisp. Joe Garston creates an Electro House staple…I would love to hear a mashup of this song with Mr. Hudson’s vocals in “Forever Young.” Somebody get on that.
You can’t listen to this song and not move your body…at the very least there must be a party in your head. This is one of those songs that would be perfect for a slideshow recapping a semester of college…I’m giving away too many ideas for free.
I’ve heard a few edits of Afrojack’s pending remix of Psy’s ‘Gangnam Style’ and although his remix will undoubtedly become more popular, DJ Reidiculous, based in NJ, delivers a compelling Dutch remix. There are definitely a few tweaks that can be made to Reidiculous’ remix attempt that would improve the overall production of the track, but he weaves in the vocals surprisingly well. Honestly, Gangnam Style is not the easiest track to remix — which explains why Afrojack’s live edit sounded a bit unprofessional and crude at best. Interestingly, Gangnam Style has already swept the world’s clubbing scene and I don’t think that I would be that much more excited if a DJ played an EDM remix over the original…matter of fact, I would be fine if it wasn’t played at all! So, I don’t know why Afrojack is waiting so long to release his remix…or why Alesso is taking so long to release Fort Minor’s ‘Where’d You Go’ remix…but I’m sure there is some sound economic reasoning. Either way, if the vocals were stripped from this remix, it would still be a brilliant track and sometimes that is how one has to judge the quality of the track. Definitely worth more than a few listens!
