Easily one of Revealed Recordings’ hottest artists, Dannic is the artist to watch as he continues to navigate the EDM circuit. Between his current tour, his new radio show, and his most recent release, ‘Rocker’, the Dutch DJ isn’t showing any sign of slowing down. With performances at the biggest festivals of the summer, including EDC Las Vegas and a debut at Tommorrowland, Dannic also had the chance to take the main stage at Electric Zoo on Randall’s Island in New York this past weekend. After delivering a festival-worthy set, full of energy, big drops, and banging tracks, Dannic took a few minutes to chat with us about his experience, how he got here, and what we can expect from him for the remainder of the year.

This past Friday, May 11th, famed rapper 50 Cent showed his support of hunger relief at City Harvest's Food Rescue Facility in NYC. He was joined by his audio company SMS Audio. The company recently partnered with Feeding America, where each purchase on SMSAudio.com in the US provides over 200 meals to hungry Americans. The rapper volunteered with City Harvest in Long Island City to bring attention to the difficulty many Americans face putting food on the table. In addition to helping pack fresh produce for City Harvest to distribute to local New York families, 50 Cent also toured the Food Rescue Facility with City Harvest director Jilly Stephens. Do as 50 does and get involved in charity! See below for some of City Harvest's upcoming events.
Hundreds of LED lit balloons marked the sky as we gazed over what had become our home over the past four days. It was the last show, the final push. We were running on fumes and anticipation after a weekend full of countless standout acts. This was the set we had been waiting for since we were fourteen, sneaking Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg CD’s into our sister’s Walkman to memorize every explicit detail of what would become so monumental so quickly. As we stood amongst the masses in complete disbelief, the entire weekend flashed before our eyes.
They say diamonds are a girl's best friend. The love for them has been imprinted in little girl's minds since Marilyn Monroe shimmied across a stage covered in them. Well, sorry men, but scientists have just discovered a diamond planet. So, if you were having trouble keeping up with the payments on that 1 carat, imagine what's going to happen when some oil heir buys the diamond planet for his mistress.
Reuters reports a the planet has been discovered some 4,000 light years away. The planet is about the size of Jupiter but 20 times more dense. The planet is apparently made of so much carbon that scientists calculate it must be crystalline --effectively making it diamond.
What started with Milli Vanilli has mouthed its way to Steve Angello.
Yes, we are talking about the great art of lip-synching.
But the little monger can't even be called finger-ing (...?), as Steve Angello makes no attempts to hide his utter disinterest behind the decks. (But hey, when the crowd is barricaded nearly 15 feet away behind a haze of smoke and stupor, what's the need for animated antics?) Steve smokes a cigarette, twist five knobs and half-heartedly pumps his palms in the air to pal Axwell's arguably awesome remix of Temper Trap's Sweet Disposition. After that, he turns his back to the crowd as he slicks his ponytail and tosses a drink, for his assistant to pick up. Cocky artist or tired professional?
