Sidney Samson is at it again.
Hand-selected by Tiesto himself to be Musical Freedom’s first official release of the year, “Torrent” by Sidney Samson and Martin Garrix will surely be a staple festival anthem of 2013.
Serving as the electro-gem we’ve been begging out of the Spinnin’ Records producers, “Torrent” takes us on a hard-hitting journey through rising pitches and piercing chords to the backdrop of a steadily thumping rhythm.
Arguably the most famous DJ/producer of all time, the legendary Dutchman Tiesto has officially launched the new homepage for his Musical Freedom imprint. Home to fellow superstars such as Tommy Trash, R3hab, Ken Loi and Quintino, Musical Freedom can easily be considered somewhat of a big room dream team.
With the official launch of the label's new cyberspace home, users can get up to date news on Tiesto and his labelmates directly from the source. The site includes exclusive podcasts, constant news, and coverage of every release from Musical Freedom.

The unique and funky house duo of Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano laid down a powerful set at this year’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Orlando. We were privileged enough to sit down with them and talk personal taste, humble beginnings, and the key ingredient to get the crowd on their feet.
So let me start off by saying you guys played quite the high energy set this evening and I could definitely see it effect the crowd. What's different about playing shows in the States compared to Europe? The reason why it's a different experience in the United States and Europe, is because the people in the United States are really enthusiastic and have a lot of soul and a lot of passion. It's a cultural thing I guess you could say, while in Europe everyone is able to party and enjoy where ever and when ever they want. So for the DJ to get the energy for the people in the United States is insane because you get so much energy back and in turn you play better.

Ask anyone, from the die-hard fans of the electronic revolution to the fresh faces floating across the grassy dance floors, and they’ll all agree that Insomniac's Electric Daisy Carnival excels at bringing unconventional excitement to fans around the globe. EDC uniquely combines childhood carnival-ride favorites with some of the world's most sought after DJ's/producers to create a festival experience quite unlike any other.
The notion that dance music and the DJ revolution is a fad of our generation could just be that. A fad. But at the moment, both are still a thing, a very big thing in fact. From Ibiza to Miami to right here in our beloved city of NYC, the club scene is thriving more than ever and the city that never sleeps is also about to get in on that "super club" bandwagon. The city is about to get an amenable makeover with the word that a few new hot spots will be opening in the year ahead.
One in particular will be the newest venture and parternship of EMM Group's, Eugene Remm, Mark Birnbaum, and Michael Hirtenstein, and RPM Worldwide's Eddie Dean and Rob Fernandez. The powerhouse forces of the hospitality and nightlife company along with the brains behind the infamous Pacha NYC are introducing FINALE, a 6,000 square foot club that will boast a multi-faceted experience by incorporating avant-garde performers, lined top-to-bottom in tufted blue leather to house a state-of-the-art Void Acoustic sound system along with innovative video and lighting.
"It has only been the golden rule. If you can play in Holland, you can play anywhere," were the words of Dutch trance producer and DJ Sander Van Doorn in the official trailer of a documentary that is in the works telling the tales of the quick and immense success of the Dutch dance scene.
Appropriately titled, "Dutch Influence," the film gets right to the point with saying that dance music originated in Europe and explains it's transition into America. The film features talented, global superstars such as Tiesto, Laidback Luke, Fedde Le Grand, and many more. The doc will follow these rising talents through some of the party capitals of the world and give fans an insight of their experiences and what it takes to stay fresh in the revolution of dance music. Check out the trailer and for more information visit the Dutch Influence homepage here.

Usually when an eclectic mix of ravers cross paths, they find themselves wired with different brainwaves and thinking patterns, disagreeing and interested in opposite genres whether it be dubstep, progressive house or trance. But when the conversation between the two parties leads to Electric Zoo, surprisingly, the two-different minded personalities can usually come together in agreement: Electric Zoo is an electronic music festival, designed for whatever type of sub genere of dance music you’d like to delve into.
Taking place from 8/31-9/1 on Randall’s Island in New York City, Electric Zoo boasted a prestigious line-up of the top DJ and producers in the world, a sold-out crowd and unbelievable electronic music. For three-days straight, attendees dressed in absurd neon attire, drenched themselves in glitter and danced around in animalistic ways while world-renowned DJ/producers dropped their latest beats and high-tech LED visuals.
