New World Punx Take On Governors Beach Club - Exclusive Interview

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."

Electric Zoo 2014 Artist Interview: Laidback Luke

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.

Habstrakt & Megalodon Bring 'The Storm' With New EP

SKisM's Never Say Die imprint has pushed together the production talents of Habstrakt & Megalodon for their latest release. “The Storm” EP reunites the “40 Cows” duo over four tracks of well-executed, face melting dubstep.

Chest rattling bass is the order of the day across all tracks on the collection: from the atmospheric “Revenge”, the percussive, stepping grooves of “Riddim101” (the highlight of the EP) to the thumping, riff laden “Yabba Dabs”, “The Storm” is a collection of gutter sounding yet precisely produced 140bpm bass music that the folks over at Never Say Die excel in.

“The Storm” is out now so head here to grab your copy.
