I love this song, ever since it came out a few months ago it has been listened to almost every day and it is not even close to getting old for me. Hopscotch released the official music video today and knowing the track as I do, I had high expectations. Those expectations were met then passed, never ceasing to make you feel the incredible emotion that this song is. The video itself is hot, steamy black and white with a little bit of witchcraft. If you haven’t downloaded this song yet, I highly recommend it.

Sean Lives On was founded by Zach Kardisch in 2012 in memory of his late friend, Sean Riley. Sean passed away in high-school from a rare form of cancer, but while being treated by the excellent staff, was forever grateful to Winthrop Children’s Hospital. Because of that, donating to Winthrop was a no-brainer for Zach. The inaugural event, held in 2012, was able to raise over $10,000. During the year, he was able to partner up with Limitless Entertainment, and this year plans on raising $20,000 to donate.
Headlining this great event is recent Lehigh University graduate, Kap-Slap, with support from Aylen and Nammo, who is a cancer survivor himself. Sean Lives On is a non-profit event, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Winthrop Children’s Hospital. The event is taking place at Warehouse5, in Island Park, Long Island, NY. The event is 16+, and will be held on Thursday, May 23rd.
Exclusive, Featured, Interviews | Good As Gold: Thomas Gold Talks Beginnings, Labels, Weird Food and 2013
Posted by Middy on May 19, 2013
Thomas Gold has been one of the most consistent guys in dance music. His live sets are always some of the best mainstage material, with impeccable mixing and his signature mashups that keep you on your toes at all times. He has become a favorite of Axwell and Axtone’s, recently putting together the Axtone 2012 compilation that featured plenty of his own material, new and old, in addition to showing off the label’s impressive recent discography, while also dusting off a critically acclaimed Essential Mix to finish off 2012. He has been a cornerstone of recent festivals such as UMF, Coachella & EDC New York and has taken his Fanfare tour all across the globe. He will be at Tomorrowland, for all you lucky festival goers who snuck in there in during the one second sellout. His remix for OneRepublic’s “Feel Again” was recently released for free, to the delight of everyone who had been waiting many months for it to be released. What he has coming up on the docket is relatively unknown, but he is known for his quality with each release and as he stated in terms of his productions, “There will be some surprises in 2013″.
We had the chance to talk to Thomas Gold a few months back about his plans for 2013, including the OneRepublic remix, his first gig, weird food experiences, possible label ventures and more. Check out his set from Ultra below and the interview after the jump.

It’s been one hell of a year for Visionary Music Group/Def Jam crooner, Logic. When you’re junior mixtape exceeds 500,000 downloads in a short years time, it’s not easy to maintain the same charisma, confidence, and quality and delivery it cohesively in a full bodied 20 track mixtape. Logic is that minority statistic, disproving critics that were convinced a major deal would lead to “sell out records”. Young Sinatra: Welcome to Forever epitomizes the intersection of fluent lyricism and major mainstream production. Yes, he signed to Def Jam, but it should be noted that his core is still VMG. Logic has not changed. The team has not changed. The music has not digressed. The bank account….may have gained a few fruitful commas.
“Everybody talk about logic, no sell out
Bitch I had a deal for you before it fell out” – Logic (Tim Westwood Freestyle)
I’d give you a track by track analysis of this project, but quite honestly if I committed to that, I would be sitting here for more hours than I have. Ultimately, I’m a fan just like you. We share the same passion when listening to the music. From here I can only hope those who haven’t opened their ears to Logic do just that. Listen. I won’t tell you to play this record or play that record because it’s all personal preference. The substance and depth is consistent track to track. Yes, there are some notable features, but to be quite honest, Logic outshines them all. Enjoy the music, you’re witnesses the come up of a legendary figure.
