Coming off of a string of successful bootlegs this year, including one of Lorde’s “Team” and Linkin Park & Steve Aoki’s “A Light that Never Comes,” Matt Dash brings us another track that is just as impressive as the ones before it. His groovy spin on Daddy’s Groove’s “Stellar” takes an unexpected dive for the deep as it veers off from the big room feel of the original. The subtle and charismatic touch of the violin intertwines perfectly with the smoothed out vocals. Make sure you have your dancing shoes on because this is one track that will get your feet moving. Check it out below.
How does that old saying go - "Time flies when you're having fun"? Well, we're pretty sure that's as true as it'll ever be for anyone who has seen or listened to Timeflies. The Bostonian duo composed of producer Rob Reznick and vocalist Cal Shapiro have come a long way since getting started back in 2010. With an album and a string of releases already under their belt, Timeflies' ability to bounce back and forth between rap, pop, and hip-hop without ever sounding out of place or as though they are having an identity crisis has allowed them to hold their own against increasingly generic-sounding artists.
Steve Aoki has forever been on the forefront of the electronic music scene and knows what is going to be cool before it even happens. His futuristic approach to a lot of his work is the reason why he is so well known at this point of his career. With that being said, it is no surprise as to why his upcoming album will be titled Neon Future I, which is releasing on August 12th, 2014. This will be the first part of the Neon Future double album package, with Neon Future II set to come out in 2015.
After what can only be described as a tragedy last summer on Randall's Island, which ultimately saw the cancellation of Electric Zoo's third and final day of performances, Made Event is happy to announce that the New York City's electronic music festival will be returning Labor Day weekend for its sixth year. Electric Zoo has grown exponentially in last five years, and CEOs of Made Event, Mike Bindra and Laura De Palma, intend to see the festival continue to flourish in years to come.
No introduction is really needed here. So here it goes, Hard Summer 2014 has the sickest electronic festival lineup announced so far for this summer. It’s all going down in the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area of Southern California on August 2nd and 3rd, and is set to host over 90 performers on 5 stages in 2 days. This is one hundred and fifty million percent the festival you want to be at this summer.
Set to headline the festival are Jack U (Skrillex + Diplo), Tiesto, Disclosure, Dillon Francis, A$AP Mob, Axwell, Nero and Flosstradamus. Then you have a whole bunch of top notch artists that will be playing throughout the day, like Martin Garrix, Baauer, What So Not, The Chainsmokers, Pusha T, A-Trak, Tchami, Hucci... and the list goes on and on.
Verboten, German for 'prohibited', is Brooklyn's #1 new venue. A 10,000 square foot former metal shop turned underground music hot-spot, besides the underground DJ's that regularly walk through its doors, the best part about Verboten would have be the lights and sounds that captivate its music loving patrons, inviting them to dance the night away. In the center of it all, a huge disco ball reflects different colors all around the room, and brightly beaming strobe lights enhance the power of the electro vibes.
Two of the biggest duos in the game have come together to unleash a colossal track just in time for the summer. On their own, W&W and Blasterjaxx are forces not to be reckoned with, and when put together, the result is simply eargasmic. The dirty Dutch sounds of both duos collide like explosive missiles and the result is the epic track titled "Rocket". This should be played at high volume, and when you find yourself on another planet after listening, just don't blame us!
Jeff Montalvo otherwise known as Seven Lions, currently on his Worlds Apart Tour, has recently announced that he will be releasing new music to go along with the tour. He will be putting out five new original tracks on the Worlds Apart EP, which includes features from Ellie Goulding, Kerli, Myon and Shane 54, and Tove Lo. The EP has high expectations as Seven Lions has not let anyone down with any of his previous releases. Known for his extremely delicate sounding dubstep, Seven Lions is an innovator when it comes to this sound that cannot be produced by many.
Producer duo Sultan & Ned Shepard were nominated for the 'Best Recorded Remix' award for their remix of Bruno Mar's 'Locked Out Of Heaven' this past year. Now, someone's remixed one of their original songs, 'All These Roads,' and its possibly good enough to be nominated for a Grammy of its own.
It's no surprise that 'Midnight' by Coldplay is getting a lot of remix attention from the electronic dance music community. Tracks like 'Clocks,' 'Paradise,' and 'Every Tear Drop Is A Waterfall' have all been given a powerful production makeover by the likes of Dirty South, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Fedde Le Grand over the years. What is a pleasant surprise however, is that legendary producer Giorgio Mororder saw fit to grace the popular Coldplay single with his talent and skill.
While his career certainly isn't coming alive for the very first time, 'Out Of My Head' is the very first time that triple threat singer, songwriter, and producer Zak Waters has ever worked completely independently on a track. You've probably heard his prominent and powerful vocals on Candyland's 'Not Coming Down,' and on the 2014 Life In Color anthem, 'Unleash,' produced by Adventure Club and David Solano, they're extremely catchy and pretty impossible to ignore.
