TJ Mizell Presents Top Summer EDM Jams

Jam Master Jay’s son, TJ Mizell has the music gene. The Scratch DJ Academy instructor lends his expert taste to a perfect summer playlist.

1. Major Lazer – Bubble Butt
“In my opinion, this song brought the good weather in. It is sure to get the bodies moving anywhere. It’s a “must-play” no matter what type of night it is.“

2. Empire of the Sun – Alive (Zedd Remix)
“You’ll be sure to hear all types of different flavors of this track this summer on the come-up. This remix by Zedd happens to be my favorite. Very select people can get that complextro sound proper and Zedd is definitely one of them.”

3. Rocko – U O E N O
“Not only does this track bang at the party, but it also wins “Best Name” and “Best New Term” in my book. The term “U O E N O” translates to “You Don’t Even Know It” when said fast with a southern drawl. Genius!”

4. Daft Punk – Doin It Right
“Daft Punk’s album has been the talk of the year with its recent release and single “Get Lucky” ft. Pharrell. Though that is a great song, the track “Doin It Right” seemed to catch my attention the most after being introduced to me by a fellow Scratch DJ Academy instructor. It’s got that groove that only Daft Punk can really get right. They’re Doin it right.”

5. Watch The Duck – Poppin Off
“This song first caught my attention on YouTube. The visuals are awesome but the music and talent behind it is what really astonishes me. From the live sampling, to the awesome vocalist, the live instruments, and of course the dancing, this song takes the cake.”
