The Italian duo Crookers exploded into the Electronic scene in late 2008 with their remix of Kid Cudi’s Day ‘n’ Nite. A song that had made both artist’s career at it’s highest success rate and exposure. Crookers who consist of Bot and Phra started Djing at the age of 11. They collaborated both their style of Dance and Electro into one great EP which debuted in 2008 – Knobbers. Today, Crookers has teamed up with popular artists like Miike Snow, Kardinal Offishall and Kelis.

Businessman (feat. Wiley & Thomas Jules) – Crookers
Since I did a Best of 2009 Artists, might as well do a Mash-Up one right? Today I’ll be posting “Best of” from Bootie Mash-Up and other blogs since I couldn’t agree with them more. There are just way too many Mash-Ups for me to make a best of list.
This album of 22 Mash-Ups was compiled by DJs A Plus D who are also the CEO and creators of Bootie Night Club, the first night club in America that only plays Mash-Ups. Their night club has been extended across the world with eight different locations in three continents. So give this album a listen or just download the whole album below.

17. Glee Cast – It’s My Life Confessions, Pt. II (A+D Bootie Edit) (Bon Jovi vs. Usher cover) – (MP3)
I cannot believe it’s been more than half a year since I started Room-Noise, I started this blog because I love music (as cheesy as that sounds). And I wanted to push myself to become more motivated to do more research, to get to know more artists and genres. And for some who might not believe me, blogging sometimes can be a major pain in the ass. There are time when I don’t even want to post anything, but you just got to push yourself to do it when you really love it. As a blogger and an aspiring student who wants to work in the Music Industry one day, I thank all my visitors and friends – without you I wouldn’t have any passion for music. I would also like to thank all the musicians, DJs and anyone who has put in so much effort to promote themselves and other musicians that makes music for the world.
Room-Noise has grown so much (I would say that since I’m the owner) and to be honest I am REALLY thankful to the following artists that has taken the time to thank and comment on Room-Noise and has sent me their music for me to promote:
Room-Noise’s BEST OF 2009 is obviously my personal opinion and is mainly based off of my Last.Fm account. So if you disagree with something stop reading and just click exit. Most of the written facts/opinions are how I discovered the following Top 10 Artists and what to look out for in the near future.
As a huge fan, I am absolutely so proud of Lady Gaga, as some of you might of seen I have probably written about her the most out of any other artists on this blog. I first discovered Lady Gaga through her single “Just Dance” back in summer of 2008. At first I didn’t really know much about her style in music or even about her as an artist. My friend had told me about her second single Poker Face in September of ’08 since it was one of the most played songs at University parties and that it had a great beat. One song led to another and I had realized Lady Gaga’s visual and musical style was something new and creative that (to me) would change the era of Pop music. When I first searched up Lady Gaga on Wikipedia, her page was only a paragraph long, now (in 2009) every time I check out the page it gets longer each time. Stefani Germanotta, played a show in Waterloo, Ontario in November 2008 at ELEMENTS club where there were probably no more than 500 people and tickets were being sold for $25. Exactly a year later Gaga has played a SOLD OUT show in Air Canada Center in Toronto, along with Six 2010 Grammy Nominations. It was because of Lady Gaga that I had branched off to Electronic music. I would put her number one on this list, but that some what means I’m selling out to the more popular musicians.
I didn’t discover all three of these female artist until Summer of 2009, it was mainly because of Steve Aoki’s 2007 Pillowface and His Airplane Chronicles album that made me wonder who were these female rappers? I took a look at their MySpace pages and there Last.Fm accounts, and I was amazed at how much talent and different styles that each of these women had. I know it’s unfair to put three people in one spot, but I feel that I should mention them to give people a notice and taste at the new era of Female Rappers of Indie Rock and Electronic Hip-Hop.
I cannot believe DJs like France’s David Guetta and Italy’s Benny Benassi are over 40 years old (who are also born in the same year) and create these amazing tracks that make teens to young adults dance at night clubs or just putting the song to maximum volume in their cars. I guess age does not matter at all in the Electronic world. David Guetta’s2009 Album One Love featured over 11 different artists, these collaborations made his album sound even better than it already was. I had watched one of the “Making of One Love” music video and David Guetta seemed like the most humble person ever. Although David might not be fully bilingual, he still can connect with other English speaking artists across the globe to make music.
The Beatles? Why are they on this list? Well I must say I wasn’t a huge Beatles fan until the film Across the Universe but also my internship…and the massive amount of Beatles products that were being sold in 2009. Although The Beatles are long and done, they deserve a mention to the new generation of music lovers. They are the basis of everything that we listen to today. And if you’ve seen any documentaries about them you would know that their creativity in music cannot be ever redone again.
My first thought about this band was “where were you in all my life?!?” In 2009 Phoenix exploded out of no where into the blogging scene, television commercials for movies and products and on YouTube. But believe it or not, Phoenix has been together for over a decade. I guess it takes time to discover bands like this one because their latest album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix sounds and reminds me of a Romance film back in the 50s’. Phoenix has this distinct taste and style in their lyrics and melody that I cannot explain until you give them a listen. I highly recommend this band to anyone who hasn’t heard of them yet – which I doubt at this point.
When I first heard about Kid Cudi I thought he was going to be a one hit wonder with this single Day ‘N’ Nite – I guessed wrong. And it wasn’t because of Kanye’s work that made him famous, to me it was because of the successful remix that Crookers did. And to be honest I thought the original track of Day ‘N’ Nite was just too slow for me, although the lyrics might be a bit hilarious. Kid Cudi wouldn’t get as much hype as he would without that one remixed single. The reason why Kid Cudi was put on Room-Noise’s Top 10 was because of his originality in Electronic Hip-Hop. His first album Man On The Moon proves that he does not need just one remixed single to make him successful. Cudi’s collaboration with MGMT and RATATAT proved his passion with other electronic artists and combining it with Hip-Hop and Rap, which we will surely see become more popular in 2010.
Redfoo and Sky Blu, the two guys that make up LMFAO. In 2009 this Electronic Hip Hop band became known for their only single I’m In Miami Bitch to being Grammy Nominated with their first album Party Rock that hit Billboard’s Top 100 instantly. I saw LMFAO in August 2009 at a night club in Toronto and knew that they had to be one of the best Electronic bands out there to play in clubs and parties. Obviously some of their songs are overplayed now, but I high recommend buying their album if you want to listen to some good music to get drunk with your friends.
The Bloody Beetroots can be described in two words, Holy Fuck. It was because of Bob Rifo and Tommy Tea that made my love for Electronic Music in 2009 sky rocket. I first discovered this band in April 2009 by looking at Crooker’s MySpace. I instantly fell in love with their style in Electronic House and Dance. I have never heard anything like that before and as a music blogger – I love music that makes you want to dance. The Bloody Beetroots instantly gave me that feeling when I heard their most popular single yet, Warp 1.9 featuring Steve Aoki. Be on the lookout in 2010 for a collaboration between Aoki and Rifo – “RIFOKI” which features a total different taste in music style from their usual. “RIFOKI” will be a combination of Punk Rock, Screamo and Electronic.
I still cannot believe how some people have not heard of Metric yet. Another reason why I’m proud to be Canadian is because of this band – I saw Metric live twice this year. And there was not a single moment of disappointment in their performance and that also goes for their fourth album Fantasies. I must say that it is my second favourite album by them, the first is Grow Up and Blow Away, another reason why I love this band so much is again, their style, lyrics and melody. It is a similar feeling that I have towards Phoenix as well, if you haven’t heard a song by Metric yet, I suggest you check them out ASAP!
There isn’t much to say about how amazing Hyper Crush is. I have not heard a band like this before where it is a combination of Hip Hop, Rap, Electronic with…video games as background music effect. Hyper Crush has grown on me over the summer of 2009 and with a very similar style to LMFAO, Hyper Crush deserves to be number one on this list because I just want to simply promote them as much as I can. I believe that they’re gonna make it bigger than they already are within the next year, so give them a try and listen to their singles on their MySpace. Their album The Arcade is no let down, Hyper Crush is currently my favourite band of 2009.
Cheers to another decade of great music to come.
