Just announced: Although he has one more show at Tao Las Vegas before completing the 'It's You, It's Me Redux' tour, Kaskade will be visiting 4 select cities for round two.
At the beginning of April, Ryan Raddon, better known as Kaskade, announced that he would be journeying to nine cities in the US on the ‘It’s You, It’s Me Redux’ tour. Ten years ago, he released his breakthrough album entitled “It’s You, It’s Me,” which showed the world just how much talent he has to offer. Ryan relayed in his Tumblr post how deep in debt he and his wife were at the time, and that his entire life depended on the make or break of this album. He wrote, “I knew that this was my last shot, and that if people didn’t find it, if this album didn’t stick, I’d have to hang it up and move on.”
In 2012, Sensation finally made its US debut at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Yesterday, they posted a video on YouTube promoting the return of “the world’s leading dance event” this upcoming fall. After having sold out its two back-to-back shows almost immediately last year, Sensation will be touring in Miami, San Francisco, New York, and Las Vegas. It is “a global event uniting millions of people dressed in white…connected through music…a mind blowing show.” Needless to say, Sensation will be covering its bases in 2013 by strategically visiting four of the biggest party cities in America.
For some reason, EDM fans have been having a terrible week as it just so happens that a lot of awful news has been dropped, one story after the other. Yesterday evening, Moonrise Festival announced on its Facebook page its cancellation just three weeks prior to the event. Fans, of course, were outraged particularly after their bold statement the day before that the “rumors” of Moonrise’s cancellation were absolutely not true. Fans accused Steez Promo, the promotion company behind Moonrise Festival, of being completely unprofessional in the way they handled the unfortunate situation. Many feel as though they should not have been lied to, as airfare and hotel costs will not be refunded. You can read their announcement in the slideshow below.
Japanese cosmetics brands have long had a presence in the high-end American beauty market. Shiseido and Shu Uemura products have been widely available in the United States since the '90’s and have many adherents who appreciate the high quality of these brands. A few years ago, cosmetics retail giant Sephora introduced us to Imju’s Fiberwig Mascara, which promised to create as-long-as-fake lashes with its high-tech formula. Since then, interest in Japanese cosmetics and skincare brands have expanded rapidly as beauty enthusiasts spread the word about favorite products via blogs and message boards. Most of this hype is focused not on high-end cosmetics, but on drugstore and youth-market brands not normally sold outside of Asia.
A young man with shaggy hair, dressed in a collared paisley button-down and multiple beaded necklaces with a peaceful and “no destruction” attitude walks by you with a cool grin…no, this is not a scene from a Woodstock or Haight-Ashbury documentary, but rather a description of the lead-singer of the psychedelic indie-rock band, Foxygen. The band formed in California in 2005 when Sam France and guitarist/keyboardist Jonathan Rado were just 15 years old playing some local gigs and mainly making appearances at their high school. At that time, The Beatles, other 1960s artists, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre were their main influences.
DJ REVOLVR is a Las Vegas-based DJ and music producer that has been spinning since 2004. This California native has been able to take different unique tricks in DJing and producing, and combine them into his own innovative way to create highly memorizing music. He has been able to make a name for himself in both Sacramento and Las Vegas with his specific technique, and continues to impress audiences with his style.
On Monday, May 22nd, DJ REVOLVR released an interesting spin to an already great song. Taking the track “Spectrum,” by Florence + The Machine, he provides his unique sense of production and his innovative style to have listeners breaking their replay buttons on their iPods. The original song was already stunning prior to the DJ REVOLVR house remix. Its combination of electrified production and spine-tingling vocals from the highly talented Florence Welch made the original incredible.
During Monday’s Billboard Music Awards, Miguel’s performance had everyone singing “Adorn” till the singer attempted a long jump from on the stage which landed him on top of two fans. Toward the end of his performance Miguel miscalculated a jump from across the stage, leading to a dramatic collision with his leg smashing one the fan's head and left upper body hitting another fan!
In true artist etiquette, Miguel continued to finish the rest of his performance as if nothing happened due to its live television coverage. But viewers at home, went to Twitter to discuss the freak accident that happened right before their eyes, making #miguel the trending topic of the night and the number one question, “Is she okay?”
Trying something new can create two different scenarios. It can end up as a failed attempt that can ultimately ruin someone’s reputation and reputability to the point that their name is tainted by that single instance. Or it can actually end up on the opposite end of the spectrum, making it so critically and commercial acclaimed that it could boost a person’s notability overnight. Although finding fame is already a mission that has been far accomplished by world famous DJ and producer Joel Zimmerman aka DeadMau5, his hunger for something new still seems unfulfilled as he heads into the studio with an interesting choice for a collaborator.
Somehow in between promoting Iron Man 3 and filming 33 dias, Gwyneth Paltrow found the time to be the new face of Hugo Boss's 'Boss Jour Pour Femme' fragrance. The new scent is the daytime counterpart to 'Boss Nuit Pour Femme.'

She is flying from London to Spain today to promote the new fragrance and officially launch the perfume for Hugo Boss.
Let the Star Wars: Episode VII casting rumors begin! Jonathon Rhys Meyers may be in talks to star in the new installment of the blockbuster science fiction series. Although it's been all but confirmed that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill are all already on board, Meyers would be the first new actor the join the Star Wars family.
Meyers already has a packed schedule, between starring in NBC's new Dracula series, and playing the villian Valentine Morgenstern in the film adapation of Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which also has two sequels; Meyers being cast in Star Wars might committ him to another long-term project. Director J.J. Abrams does have a personal connection with the actor, since he previously worked with him on Mission: Impossible III, so maybe he can convince Meyers to sign on!
Star Wars: Episode VII has a tentative release date of 2015.
