Since it's June release, Tiesto’s A Town Called Paradise has enjoyed massive success. Singles off the album "Red Lights" and "Wasted (featuring Matthew Koma)" have been played at the world's biggest festivals over the summer, as well as clubs everywhere; insomuch they have both achieved RIAA certified Gold status. Knowing this much, there is no doubt that the third track released, "Light Years Away (Featuring DBX)," will also be received warmly.
The video takes places in a far away galaxy, and follows the unlikely pairing of a robot and female as they search for any indications of organic life. It seems as though the female character is yearning for something from the past, almost blind to the loyalty and allegiance given by her companion. To see the beautiful way the video ends, you'll just have to watch for yourself.
There were a lot of things to be depressed about after the cancellation of Electric Zoo's last day for the second year in a row, and Joonbug.com ranks missing Netsky's set that Sunday high on the list. While his appearance at Slake that night might have sated most of his New York City fans' voracious drum & bass appetites, we wanted to sit down and chat with the man behind one of dance music's greatest live acts, which just so happens to be hitting the road next month in the UK before coming back to the states for the Stay Up With Me tour in November.
As the New York City summer comes to a close, its dance music-obsessed inhabitants descended upon Governors Beach Club last Sunday for its second-to-last show of the season featuring superstar tandem New World Punx.
Comprised of Dutch trailblazer Ferry Corsten and the two-time title-holder of America’s Best DJ Markus Schulz, New World Punx is a powerhouse duo who have joined forces to bring the fun back into trance.
“Trance can get a little bit too series sometimes so we said let's just have fun,” Markus explained in an interview before the show. “And people who want to have fun will get it, we'll resonate with them and that's what has brought this all together. For years now there's been people that have been frustrated with love songs and ballads, we're bringing the fun back into it."
With his latest mixtape, Cocaine Riot 4, garnering positive reception in the streets along with the anticipation of his upcoming CR4 Tour, set to kick off in Hartford, CT next week in full swing; Chinx wastes no time in keeping fans entertained and, has some fun on School Boy Q's 'Studio.' On the track, originally produced by Swiff D on Schoolboy's third studio album, Oxymoron, the Queens rapper delivers his #yaymix (remix) of the song and pitches his signature raw, charismatic, Coke Boy motto. Chinx's quick paced flow complements Q's verse as he spits bars about persuading his love interest that he's the one she needs to get with whilst taking shots at his rivals. Take a listen to the #yaymix below and if you haven't gotten a hold of CR4 on iTunes just yet, then now's the time.
After making a name for himself via a number of free downloads and receiving some serious air time from Trance star Morgan Page, electro house producer Axen brings the goods with his opening single for Basik Rkrds this week. An artist who dabbles in an array of genres, a simple scroll through this up and comer's SoundCloud will show that he's confident experimenting in trap, progressive house, big room, and bass. He has teamed up with US producer Invalyd for this newest single, probably best known for the track “Let Your Heart Go” featuring Jonny Rose – which Laidback Luke made a stunning edit of.
Next weekend, the People of Tomorrow will descend on Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia as TomorrowWorld takes over for its second year.
Three whole days long, and having received a nomination for Best Music Event from the International Dance Music Awards after its inaugural year last year, the festival may come off a bit daunting—especially for first year attendees. Aside from boasting killer lineup , TomorrowWorld offers camping options, as part of a city they call “Dreamville,” and plenty of pre-festival treats to get everyone pumped up. With naught a clue as to what to expect, one might find themselves flustered and worried they will be ill prepared.
Laidback Luke is not your average DJ or producer. Some might be so bold to suggest he not even human, but instead a super-human force here to save dance music from, and we'e not just saying that because he likes to dress up like a hero and host some of the most amazing parties anyone has ever seen. It takes a lot of courage to dress up like a superhero in front of thousands of people when it's not Hallowween, but it takes even more courage to pioneer something like Super You & Me, while holding down the fort as one of the most technical DJs still in the game.
It's here, the newest single from Keys N Krates, 'Understand Why'. Hailing from Toronto, Canada, the group has released the single just in time for the September 18th start of their Every Nite tour, although they have making waves across the nation with their widely popular, "Are We Faded".
Few musicians in dance music today can say that they've been touring the world over since the mid-nineties. Fewer still can say that they've done it as successfully, while still finding time to write and produce music that has consistently and continuously helped alter and shift the state of the industry in new and exciting ways. Highly ranked among those select few lie Cosmic Gate, the combined moniker of two of the most talented and like-minded artists to have ever walked the Earth.
From the first days of the 'Wake Your Mind' phenomenon, to the very recent release of their latest album, Start To Feel, the duo of Nic Chagall and DJ Bossi have been on a meteoric ride around the galaxy the comprises electronic dance music as we know it, blazing their way past the brightest lights and darkest pits of the industry, forever in search of the sounds that will invoke in their fans the deepest emotions and greatest wonder. Anyone who's had the pleasure of listening to their newest album, knows they've certainly succeeded, but they are by no means stopping there. Having just wrapped up the North American leg of their 'Start To Feel' tour, Cosmic Gate took a brief moment of their time during their visit to New York City for Electric Zoo 2014 to chew the fat with us about tour life, music love, and how they really feel about EDM today.
