Theme Song of the Month: July 2012

America's birthday month is brought to you by a party jam I've been playing for the past two weeks: "Spectrum" by Zedd (a.k.a Anton Zaslavski) featuring Matthew Koma.

The high-energy yet breezy, dubstep-driven track comes to us from one of Germany's youngest producers (look at that face: did he just graduate from high school?). As a matter of fact, Europe seems to be cranking out a fresh crop of young DJs (Madeon, Avicii, etc.) who are seemingly aiming to give old-timers like David Guetta and Paul Van Dyk a run for their money.

"Spectrum" just what the iTunes doctor ordered for the next 30 days, during which I'll be suntanning in Palm Springs, geeking out at Comic-Con in San Diego, mingling with filmmakers at Outfest here in L.A., and then jetting off to Dallas, where I'll grab a cowboy hat, channel my inner Bobby Ewing, and land myself into a pleasant food coma after a nice barbecue session and cocktail sampling at several local hotspots (stay tuned for pics).

Enjoy.



Happy birthday America!

Party responsibly.
