As everyone has probably heard, coz it's MASSIVE news, the legend and genius Michael Jackson died yesterday. I've seen a few people on the Internet saying that he doesn't deserve the title genius. But those people are just not educated enough. So just to clear it up, Michael Jackson wrote most of his songs. All except Thriller, as far as i know. And I really do think he does deserve the title genius, because his lyrics, melodies, productions and voice are all amazing. And to top it all off he was an unbelievable dancer. And to top it off even more his music videos were pretty much amazing too.
On the other hand, I was watching Sky News today and some dude said a nice thing about him. He said "Perfomers like Michael Jackson don't come once in a decade, or once in a generation, or once in a life time. They only come once."
So I'm just going to give you a couple of remixes that are worth mentioning. The first coming from Rogerseventytwo, who is definitely worth checking out. And his remix of The Jackson 5's 'I Want You Back' is definitely worth downloading.
The second track is the remix of 'Thriller' by DiscoTech, which isn't a brilliant track but it just modernizes and makes it even more club friendly. It's a handy one for djs to just thrown into a set.
And the last track is my favourite Michael Jackson track "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough', which is truly a disco masterpiece. It's one of those songs that, when the first beat comes in, you have to move. Genius.

Cillo is a young electro producer hailing from our very own Dublin. After causing a bit of a stir at Soundcloud and getting air play in England, I thought it time to give him an introduction. With 8 tracks under his belt and constantly producing more, I think he'll go far.
Interestingly, he is also the lead guitarist and main song writer for a progressive metal band called Valediction.
He is very influenced and is making similar sounds to likes of Justice, Boys Noize and The Bloody Beetroots. But he does have a unique sound which is defintiely worth checking out. I especially like the hip hop influence and half time beats featured in his song 'Roots'. And my favourite song is 'Electro 101'. Please give his stuff a listen.
All his stuff can be streamed and downloaded for free here at his Soundcloud page.
