MP3: DJ Geometrix Britney & Rihanna Remixes

Just finished another remix that I've been working on all day yesterday and all morning long today.  This time its Britney Spears' newest song "Hold It Against Me".  Really excited about this one so I've decided to go ahead and share it with you, fresh off the presses.  I literarily just finished this remix 10 minutes ago.  Hope you enjoy it.

BTW, I'm so thankful that my Rihanna "Who's That Chick" got so much support from all the music blogs and the whole DJ community.  I believe it has 2300+ plays and almost 1000 downloads on my Soundcloud page since I shared it with everyone almost 2 weeks ago.  Hopefully the Britney remix will get the same amount of support, maybe even more.  If you didn't get a chance to download my Rihanna remix, download it below.

House of Pain Announces 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour

EVERLAST and DANNY BOY are kicking off the 20th anniversary of HOUSE OF PAIN in style! That’s right, for the first time since their split in 1996 the duo is teaming up once again for the “He Who Breaks The Law” world tour that is sure to be one of the most anticipated of the year. The US leg of HOUSE OF PAIN’S 20-year celebration will kick-off in March and sees the storied group on their first proper tour since reuniting last year for their highly praised reunion at KROQ’s Epicenter event alongside Eminem and KISS, amongst others.
“The catalyst of this whole thing was the KROQ show,” EVERLAST explains, “We left Epicenter and immediately started putting this whole thing together. We’ve been reading messages from the fans who wanted to see it; but once you see a crowd that size go crazy and sing along to every word, you know it’s time to do it. We want to give the fans what they want!”
"It's been 20 years in the making and long overdue! Back to the House of Pain 2011 tour Let's go!" added Danny Boy O'Connor.
HOUSE OF PAIN will also be bringing some hefty support on this tour in the form of BIG B,  SLAINE and SOZAY.
