New York production/DJ duo The Chainsmokers are winning the Internet with their newly released official music video for their track “#SELFIE” available now on Dim Mak Records. The track serves as the unofficial selfie theme song and the official music video pokes fun of the viral culture in this tongue-in-cheek clip featuring major celebrity cameos via hilarious selfies from Snoop Dogg, Ian Somerhalder (“The Vampire Diaries”), Jessica Szohr (“Gossip Girl”), and even David Hasselhoff in full Bay Watch attire. The video also features electronic music royalty, including A-Trak, Steve Aoki, NERVO, and more, as well as numerous Internet and social media personalities such as Nash Grier, Fat Jew, and Jimmy Tatro. The Chainsmokers’ “#SELFIE” epitomizes the global pop culture trend in a satirical video bound to go viral with over 50,000 views in under 24 hours.
With “#SELFIE,” The Chainsmokers stray from their foundations in indie, progressive, and pop music to bring forth an electro anthem featuring a funky, Melbourne bounce bass line and high-energy melody. The track features astonishingly accurate narration from the stereotypical, Instagram selfie-obsessed girl, complete with audacious gossip, self-conscious commentary, and complaints about the club DJ. If anyone ever needed encouragement to take a selfie, this song is just that fix. Check out dates for their #SEFLIETOUR after the break

The modern day phenoms of Indie-Alternative Progressive House are at it again. The Chainsmokers of New York release their remix of The Wanted’s “We Own The Night.” (Not to be confused with their “We Run The Night” remix by Tonite Only). As a blogger, this does actually bring confusion but it is immediately destroyed by the innate quality of yet another pleasing Chainsmokers remix.
“So we actually wrote Fenech-Soler a while back with interest in working on their track ‘Magnetic,’ but we were too late it had already ran its course… Lucky for us they offered up their upcoming single ‘Last Forever’ and we loved it! We couldn’t be more excited to work with a band like Fenech-Soler, they have a great fresh sound, are working their asses off just as we are, and they have British accents, we love British accents… The only trouble of this song was the tempo. So, with that in mind we had to stretch the vocals but it actually turned out really nice over our chords. On top of that our chord work on the remix is a structure we had been playing with for a while and were very happy when the chords paired up nicely with the emotion of the song and the rest as music should, came naturally…” – The Chainsmokers

New York’s (unofficial) Yoga Pants ambassadors, The Chainsmokers, are back again with another stellar, feel-good remix suitable for any summer playlist. This time around, the duo took Say Lou Lou’s “Julian” and applied their signature indie progressive “flare.” (Can I use Glitter instead of flare, guys?) To simplify the motivation for the remix, Alex and Drew applied their NYU/Syracuse degrees to a basic mathematic formula:
No integration or differentiation needed here, kids. Show some love for the guys by scooping up the free download and show some real-life love by giving it a “heart” on Hype Machine!
As we enter the month of May, it is crucial for one to begin preparing their summer festivities. Bottom line is that your music library needs to be equipped with the best of the best to ensure you a great night or workout (beach body ready). Lucky for you, Brolic Beats has prepared a list of essential summer tunes that DJs have been nice enough to hand out for free.
