Nine times out of ten I bet you find something you like. Indie music producers and house DJs are looking for ways to get noticed.

Life in Color, formerly known as Dayglow, announced the premier of Life in Color Festival, which will be held Saturday, September 21st in our nation’s capital. The “world’s largest paint party” just got bigger; in the past, Life in Color and Dayglow were solely nighttime events. However, LIC Festival will “be an all day and night event with multiple stages” and more paint, serving as their largest production to date. It is likely that the festival will be held at RFK Stadium, where Life in Color has been hosted in the past. If you’re going to be in the DMV area late September, this is surely going to be an event that you won’t want to miss. Early bird tickets go on sale Wednesday, June 5th, and artists will be announced shortly thereafter. For those of you on Facebook, join the event here to stay connected.

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.
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.
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.
Memorial Day Weekend is the official start to summer, so why not bring in summer with one of the biggest festivals that EDM has to offer? Making its way to its highly anticipated Vegas show case, Electronic Daisy Carnival will be stopping at the famous Windy City to help kick off the season starting Friday, May 24th until Sunday, May 26th. After rocking New York in front of a crowd of 50,000 people this past weekend, EDC plans to keep the party going with the biggest names in EDM that the Second City Chicago has ever witnessed.
The greatly anticipated tickets to Ultra Music Festival 2014 were supposedly released today at 1pm, EST, but fans sarcastically propose the idea that “there were never Early Bird tickets to begin with.” About 3 hours ago, Ultra posted a video on Vine of their “upgraded servers,” bragging that this year, there would be absolutely no crashes. Well, they spoke too soon. Similar to consumers’ experiences last year, not only was the website slow and unresponsive, but it took so long to get from one page to another that the website timed out and released people’s tickets so that others could buy them. Uh, really? To say that there were many peeved fans is an understatement.
