TIËSTO Drops the Video for 'Light Years Away'


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.

UrbanSpace has done it again! Grab your friends and your appetites and head to the month long food fest in New York’s famous Garment District. From 39th to 41st streets on Broadway you’ll find a creative blend of vendors that are taking part in this event that is part greenmarket and part country fair. But you’ll want to hurry because this pop-up only runs from September 15th – October 17th, 2014.

Since we went in-between lunch and dinner, we focused on the sweetness and the cheesy offerings. While it’s impossible to eat at all the amazing vendors in one go, here’s the few of the culinary delights we sampled and enjoyed.

That One Time We Interviewed Netsky at the Ultra Office

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.

New World Punx Take On Governors Beach Club - Exclusive Interview

“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."

THE SCENE
ELLE Runway Collection By Kohl's

Never been to Paris? Well, the City of Lights was brought to the Big Apple with the Parisian lifestyle/glamour inspired ELLE Runway Collection by Kohls. The event, hosted by Style360, was on point with the French theme by having the models walk thru an Eiffel Tower shaped frame, guests sitting "front row" at café tables, the Paris skyline on the walls, and playing French music throughout the show. Sitting at one the front row tables was singer/actress Christina Milian who kept it cool in a Wu-Tang t-shirt and jeans.

CHEAP EATS
It All Happened at the Vendys


As we said before, we’ve been looking forward to the Vendy Awards--the annual food truck classic--for quite awhile, and this past weekend, the day finally arrived. We saddled up and headed across the river on the ferry to Governors Island, making our way to the fairground. We’ve got to say, even in spite of crappy weather (it was intermittently drizzling and raining pretty hard), the Vendy Awards was one of the best food events we’ve been to this year. After all, if anybody knows how to operate at the top of their game, rain or shine, it’s this crew. We left totally stuffed and totally happy.
