“Yo Mel! I know you don’t have many friends and still don’t have a girlfriend and also stay home most of the time so I’ve got the perfect site for you, edm-date.com”. That’s (roughly) what Middy said to me a week ago and I was admittedly intrigued. The thought of meeting a girl who loves Avicii, Zedd, Calvin Harris, Alesso, and that one Swedish House Mafia song as much I really got me going! Could I even find a girl like that at school? Not a chance! I was stirring at the opportunity to sign up and finally get a gf at last! I figured it would be a bit of work though and I was already pretty tired, just had a piece of cheesecake ya know (super filling), so I took a nap. I woke up in a different state of mind however. Do I really want to look for love online? I don’t know, that’s what losers do… What about if things go well so we decide to meet up somewhere and it turns out we actually have a great time. We laugh and tell stories, spend the night telling each other about our childhood and what not. I then pay for dinner, drive her home, and she lies in bed thinking about me. I, on the other hand, lie in bed and cry because she has Megan Fox thumbs and a slightly askew left eyebrow so I have no other choice but to never talk to her again. There were many similar questions buzzing around in my head so I was unsure as to whether or not I wanted to go through with it. A sticky stomach and a shameful shower later, it was time to get to work.
So… I did it. I signed up and attempted to get a date. Does this EDM exclusive dating site actually provide people with a chance to find love with likeminded individuals or was it all a waste of time? Read on to find out.

It just keeps getting weirder. Just hours ago, PerezHilton.com released exclusive video of Justin Bieber purportedly asleep after doing the no pants dance. I’d have a lot of respect for the biebs if he manned up and owned it. Instead, he denies he was even there when pictures tell another story. Isn’t all that surprising. Here’s the sordid plot twist though…
Apparently, the woman in the video is Tati Neves, one of Brazil’s most famous transexual? prostitutes that just so happens to work at the brothel in question. Bieber was said to have picked her because “she looked like she could suck a golf ball through a garden hose.“ I’m usually of the opinion that the biebs is bullet-proof. I’m not sure how he’s going to get out of this pickle.
UPDATE: Another woman from Paraguay has tweeted a pile of money thanking Justin. The plot thickens!

It seems as though Justin Bieber is extending his South American tour, in the form of visiting a Brothel while in Brazil. Just this morning Page Six reported spotting him outside with his security team huddled around him, blanket draped over his entitled frame. Apparently, Justin spent over three hours in the establishment (some say it took him 5 minutes) before leaving with two women. As you can imagine, Justin’s
brainswashed cult “beliebers” are very upset. How upset you ask? Well, I’ll let the fans talk.

July 1, 1982, the conversation began. This was almost a decade after Kool Herc first put his hand to vinyl on Prospect Ave., addressing the crowd over the beat—a mix of popular record samples. A new record was on its way to radio, slated for a hip-hop audience, though it was a drastic change to its proven formula. Hip-hop, at the time, was party feeder, and steadily gaining national attention as a result: just a year earlier The Funky 4 Plus One had performed their hit “That’s the Joint” on SNL (the first instance of the genre on television), and Africa Bambaataa’s techno-heavy “Planet Rock” was becoming ubiquitous on the radio circuit, having fully embraced the relationship between hip-hop and dance music.

You have seen posts before by other blogs with pictures of DJs when they were little kids or even teenagers. That is cute and all, but here we want to show you when they were looking like goons, in that phase of their professional life they would probably rather forget, when they were young and reckless and not always ready for the camera. Some of them do look like they were born for the camera (see Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong & Carl Cox), but others: oh boy, let’s have some fun on this special Throwback Thursday. Before you move on, please bask in how goonish Tiesto, Armin and Ferry look in that picture. Armin had his law degree at that point. Imagine being represented in court by him; unreal.

Has it really only been
five minutes nine months since the results of the 2012 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll? Wow. That totally flew by.
The DJ Mag poll is more than just a poll, of course; it’s an increasingly dominant internet sideshow that is about to become a larger part of your life than you’d probably like. How we’ve missed the pageantry of it all — the fervent sense of camaraderie that gets expressed through status updates (see above); the earnest pleas to our finer sensibilities (“a vote for Steve Aoki is a vote for pandas!”); the reliable kvetching from @Deadmau5 (“lol fuk this poll…even though I always crush the top 5 #whatever”); and, of course, the overwhelming sense of
inevitability anticipation (spoiler alert: Armin wins in 2013). The only thing better than Shark Week is the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll!
In truth, this year’s poll is already shaping up to be even more unbearable than ever, due to two very distinct forces coming together to create a veritable perfect storm of awfulness:
2) The EDM Explosion of 2010-Present — or whatever phrase du jour you, your grandmother, and/or The New York Times are using to refer to this awesome/terrible watershed moment in our musical metanarrative.
So if you think you’re in for anything more than a whole lotta this for the next three months…well, LOL, bro. That’s adorable.

There is a decent chance by now that you have heard this mashup by Swedish duo Daleri of the some of the latest hits sweeping festival main stages and gracing the top of the Beatport charts. Upon first listen you may think, well wow isn’t this a convenient little minute of noise that takes out all of those pesky and boring builds and is just straight huge, dope banger anthem drops. But when you actually listen, you see just how everything sounds the same.
