I love Ellie Goulding. I can’t help it. She’s beautiful and she’s got a great little gig going as a pop star. It seems that I’m not the only one who loves her though. Her awesome voice is featured in countless mashups and her music is constantly being remixed. In fact, the first time I heard of Ms. Goulding was on Chiddy Bang’s Under the Sheets Remix. Check out our Ellie ReMixtape if you haven’t already.
Now on to the next. DJ Minnesota is Christian Bauhofer, a bass-lover from UC Santa Cruz who aims to focus on making dubstep more melodic and keeping the quality songwriting a factor. You heard the Penguin Prison Remix in our ReMixtape, now check out Minnesota’s take on the Ellie classic. If there is such thing as smooth dubstep, then this is it. I have no problem hyping up this track, it’ll definitely have you starry eyed!

Minnesota’s California Dreamin’ has been a huge hit with the SoundCloud kids. Do yourself a favor and listen to it. It’s a sick display of talent and will have you trippin’ more than the Mamas and the Papas. (Bassnectar is a big fan, so it should be good enough for you too!)
