Albums, Review | Dada Life – The Rules Of Dada (Album Review)

Posted by on October 19, 2012

Following their debut album “Just Do The Dada” back in 2009, Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom, better known to the world through their outrageous musical personality, Dada Life, return with their sophomore full album release “The Rules Of Dada”. When you click play on any Dada Life release, you have to be in the right mind set to be ready to absorb what you are about to be hit with. Subtle complexities are not the name of the game with Dada Life. It is about smashing you in the mouth with as big and an energetic a sound as one can make. Nothing more, nothing less. The rules of dada require it so. It may not be fair to give them a separate set of rules, but the bananas and champagne men have forged their own path in such a way that they have earned them.


Albums | Is this the future of EDM events?

Posted by on September 26, 2012

“Fantazia 360” by NV Concepts (explained in the video above) ventures outside the norm by incorporating a theatrical experience into its show. The goal behind their movement is obvious; to supplement the monotonous stage productions seen elsewhere and start a new breed of EDM events. Will Fantazia 360 set a new precedent? Will Tiesto, Avicii, Dada Life, etc start to feature the likes of acrobats and fire breathers? I think NV Concepts is moving in the right direction by trying to add more performance value to shows so I’d like to see this progression come to fruition. However, I’m weary that the unauthentic party goers of our time will continue to settle for less.

If you’re as curious as I am about Fantazia 360, purchase tickets for their shows in NY, PA, MA – HERE.

Here is a collection of the artist aftermovies from Electric Zoo that have been released so far. First up Nicky Romero brings us back to Friday afternoon with his high energy set packed with brand new and unreleased tracks, including “Iron” that is featured in this video. Next we have Axwell who as he gets ready for his onelasttour with SHM put together a great set on Saturday MainStage. The video also features an upcoming remix by Tommy Trash of The Aston Shuffle – Won’t Get Lost, out soon on Axtone. After the jump we have the Bingo Players and Dada Life featuring their aftermovies.


Events, FYI | Grand Opening: Echostage D.C.

Posted by on September 19, 2012

To live in D.C. is to get some of the very best electronic music acts brought to your front door.

Yes, I realize that some of you may be raising your eyebrows right now (looking at you, New York), but trust me. We’re quietly killing it down here, and it’s all thanks to a little outfit called Panorama Productions, the brains and brawn behind promotion company Club Glow, which has been connecting the nation’s capital with the genre’s biggest names since 1999. This Saturday, things are going to get even more serious: Club Glow will preside over the launch of D.C.’s first EDM venue, Echostage, a roughly 4000-capacity space with an equally massive sound system that will host huge billings every week. For district area dance fans, this is literally monumental. Club Glow has been operating primarily out of Josephine and Fur Nightclub for the past few years, and the recent explosion of dance music has made the need for a bigger and better venue that much more urgent.

The Echostage launch party kicks off this Saturday with Sander Van Doorn and Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and the calendar shows no signs of slowing down; Dada Life, Armin van Buuren, Avicii, Dirty South, and Tiesto are already lined up, and we’re still in the very early days. If you live in the Midatlantic and are starved of that 128 bpm fix, head over to Echostage’s website and Facebook page and scope the details — because this is about to be big.

Mainstream Remix | Dotcom Remixes

Posted by on September 16, 2012

Originally known for his mashups, Dotcom decided to step out of the box and venture into the world of originals. All I can say to that is we’re sure as hell glad he did. Below are two remixes he just released and their filthy to say the least. Dotcom takes Dada Life’s already heavy “Feed the Dada” and infuses it with enough heavy synths and deep base to give the track a complete makeover. Big ups to Dotcom, keep an eye on this kid.

DJ-Set, Events, House | Electric Zoo Sets: Day 2

Posted by on September 5, 2012

Here are sets from day two with some outstanding stuff from the Bingo Players, Mord Fustang, Axwell and more. This is selection of not only the MainStage, but also Riverside and Hilltop, though it is a bit disappointing that none of the Sunday School sets were recorded. Anyway there a lot of these sets so get to listening if you haven’t finished up on Day 1 yet.
