Ferry Corsten's 'Pogo' Out Now

Following the hugely successful electro-house smash "Hyper Love," Ferry Corsten once again demonstrates his diversity as he unveils the deliciously dark, old school trance inspired ‘Pogo’ – out now on his very own Flashover Recordings imprint.

With "Hyper Love" continuing to climb the charts and dominate airwaves worldwide, for his latest single Corsten harks back to a darker side of trance that has been kept under wraps on his recent productions. On "Pogo," Ferry uses deep bass, fluttering synths and an irrepressibly catchy topline melody to build energy, punctuated with ominous vocals that lend a truly eerie atmosphere. Featuring on Kramer’s BPM show on Sirius XM earlier this week, ‘Pogo’ has been rapidly gaining support from listeners around the globe.

Expertly Tailored DIY Halloween Looks

Halloween Chic Face Mask

Monika Crouch, MUA at Pierre Michel Salon

Products:

Silver cream makeup, Ben Nye Metallic Liquid is great.

Eyelash glue is the best for applying rhinestones, preferably in clear or the white that dries clear, Duo is my favorite, or Revlon.

I use NARS gel eyeliner in black to do all the detail for mask trim and lace detail. It's waterproof and doesn't smudge.


Steps:

  1. Moisturize and apply foundation to even out skin .
  2. Next take a silver cream foundation in the shape of a mask across your eyes area.
  3. Next apply black cream shadow on eyes , the same way you would apply to do a simple smoky eye.
  4. Apply black eyeshadow over cream to set . For the details to make a lace mask, take a stencil of your choice with a lace/floral pattern and apply to face and then go over the stencil with a cream makeup in black to make the shape of the lace over the silver areas of makeup .Take the same black cream makeup and create a border around the silver mask.
  5. Final step, take rhinestone and place in areas of the fade to add dimension.

Meaux Green Releases His Spin on A$AP Ferg's 'Work'

Rising trap producer Meaux Green continues to prove that he's a force to be reckoned with, after releasing his energetic remix of A$AP Ferg's Work. Using his hip-hop background as inspiration, and fusing in today's modern dance sound, the Miami native now finds himself as one the leaders of the 100-bpm bass music sound.

Meaux does an amazing job of building off of Ferg's original number. He gives the track a much larger, vibrant sound by adding big room synths mixed with trap percussion to create a hugely successful track. Meaux Green has yet again, created a trap banger out of a hip-hop track.
