Last week, Brooklyn's Barclays Center hosted a celebration of Jamaica's 50 years of independence with a very special performance. Grammy Award-winning artist Shaggy performed, as well as Ali Campbell's UB40, Beres Hammond, and Maxi Priest all jammed out during the BioLife Sounds of Reggae concert. The concert was the first reggae concert for the Barclays Center, marking a historic milestone for the arena, which is located in a community known for its Caribbean culture.
The artists all performed both past and present hits, including Shaggy's "Boombastic" and Ali Campbell's "Red Red Wine." “Sounds of Reggae brought unprecedented energy to Barclays Center last night,” commented Shaggy. “It was an incredible opportunity to share a part of Jamaica’s culture with Brooklyn, my second home.”
A native from the Netherlands, Jacob Van Hage is about to make his debut on American soil and what better way to do it than at the weekly electronic music series, Electric Beach at Santos Party House? Just a year ago, Jacob was recognized as one of the most beamish crossover DJ/Producer's in the scene by meshing together different styles of electronic music. Since then, he's been touring the world side by side with A-Listers such as Steve Aoki, Zedd, Ferry Corsten and Dada Life to name a few.
He garnered early support from Tiesto, Hardwell, and Dash Berlin with his remix of "Acid Dream," and his track "Synthomanic" quickly gained huge support from more big names like Steve Aoki, Dada Life and Sidney Sampson. His follow up track and smash hit "Spotfire" climbed to the #1 slot on Beatport and is widely considered the biggest track of Miami’s 2011 Ultra Music Festival and Winter Music Conference.
The Dutchman has been asked to remix tracks from artists like Dada Life and Ferry Corsten. He's also released "Convoi" on Doorn Records which was a huge turning point for Jacob because he found his true love: Trance blended with House, or, Trouse. Sounds that are pounding yet melodic, but still at 128 BPM. By doing this, it gained him tons of respect and support for his crossover appeal. He then unleashed his huge bomb “Voodoo,” a collab with Saint Liz, to huge global support from all the usual suspects.
Jacob turns every dancefloor into mayhem and that special gift led Dim Mak to ask him to join their stage at Tomorrowland with Steve Aoki, Afrojack and Dada Life as well as MTV bringing Jacob on board for their 2012 Club MTV Tour.
It's bound to be a really awesome experience as Jacob Van Hage is making swift moves to make sure his name becomes more and more recognized in the States! Don't miss him Nov. 24th at Santos! For more information and tickets visit here.

globe for his ASOT 500 shows and will embark on another ASOT 600 tour within the next year, with a stop in NYC as well!
Nothing short of a dedicated trance lover, van Buuren isn’t confined by a single genre, saying “What makes trance work so well is that it doesn’t stick to one style, and can incorporate electro, minimal, whatever it likes.”
