Very few people have heard of Bobby Puma, but word is he's one of dance music's hidden gems. Believe it or not, the Bay Area native has been ghost producing for the last 5 years, under the wings of DJ Mag Top 100-worthy artists. Today, however, Puma is officially introducing himself to the world in presenting his very first remix of none other than Dada Life's latest production, "Born To Rage." Although he is fresh onto the scene, the experience Bobby has gained as a DJ behind closed doors are evident in his electro-packed rendition of the original. With a steady percussive buildup leading into deeper, stabbing electro synths, Puma's remix is invigorating and refreshing. Download his remix below, which Puma is giving away to fans for free.
This past Thursday, we took a brief road trip up to Philadelphia only to find ourselves in the Dada Land Compound featuring the one and only, Dada Life. One of the supporting acts included Florida native Henry Fong, and we spoke to him after his set to discuss his new track, "Hot Steppa" (see below), how he got started on his career, and what it's been like traveling the country to perform with Dada Life. We saw a great deal of potential in Henry particularly during his set, and his blazing, electro take on Zedd's "Stay The Night" (see below) further confirms this reality.
Can you tell us a little about your new track, “Hot Steppa”?

As many people look back at Electric Zoo this weekend, the emotions widely vary. Between the heartbreaking reasons behind the disappointing and contentious cancellation of Day 3, and the ongoing debate as to whether or not the right decision was made, it can be easy to look past all the good that happened this weekend. With that being said, we should not ignore what has occurred, but learn from it. Instead of thinking about what we missed out on, let’s remember what we experienced. Day 2 of Electric Zoo brought together thousands of electronic dance music listeners from all over the world to Randall’s Island for a day packed with performances from our favorite artists. Let us reflect on these positive moments that have created beautiful memories that we should not allow to be overshadowed by the negative.
Electric Zoo makes its triumphant return to its original location, NYC's Randall’s Island Park this Labor Day Weekend (August 30-September 1st) for three days of the world's best in electronic music. To celebrate E Zoo’s fifth anniversary there will be two main stages on expanded festival grounds—which can only mean more confetti, more music, and more fun. The two stages, designated Main Stage West and Main Stage East, will have headliners such as Avicii, Knife Party, Dada Life, David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, and Laidback Luke and others yet to be announced. This year there will be a total of five stages in addition to the two main stages for all you zoo animals out there to choose from.
MTV named Nicky Romero an EDM artist to watch in 2012 and our eyes have been glued to the Dutch DJ ever since. So when he announced he’d be making his debut performance at Space Miami last Saturday, we jumped on the opportunity to check out the young star in action.
Brought into the electronic music world by mentor David Guetta, the 23-year-old Dutch superstar has already made an impressive name for himself as the next progressive-electro wonderboy. The rising star spent 2012 producing 14 hard-hitting and well-received singles, touring the nightlife metropolises of the world, and topping it off with a Miami New Year’s Eve weekend concert we’ll never forget.
