Dutch production duo East & Young are turning ears up with an all new single “Elevate”, or should we say elevating ears. The piano-driven tune is suitable for dance-floors far and wide, as it builds slowly from the intro and breaks out into a sonic climax complete with booming drums and layered melodies. “Elevate” is out now.

Chill, Jersey Club | Jailo & Vices – Loving You (Long Time)

Posted by on February 17, 2014

Today being the first day I’ve seen sunshine in Sweden in about 2 months mixed with all these leftover Valentine’s Day tracks certainly has me still feelin’ some type of way this morning.

Check it out and be sure to keep your eye on these producers in the months to come.



Videos | Armin van Buuren Joined on Stage by Dutch King and Queen; Everything Makes Sense Again

Posted by on May 1, 2013

Here is a video of Armin van Buuren being joined on stage by the King and Queen of the Netherlands, who made an impromptu pit stop at this apparent rave while probably en route to a ball and/or palace.

This video is perfect. Several things:

1) There are currently multiple comments on YouTube alleging that Armin is, in fact, the real King in the North King of the Netherlands and the other guy’s an impostor. Interesting theory.

2) I’m assuming that this is the Dutch equivalent of the Obamas getting on stage with Skrillex at Ultra. Awesome; also excellent visual.

3) In that vein, I’d really like to live in a country where Armin van Buuren is backed by a symphony orchestra and kings and queens come out to wave to the adoring populace as the dulcet sounds of trance and violins fill the air. Armin van Buuren: Dutch National Treasure.

4) The Queen is kind of a babe, no?

5) Coolest royal family ever. Sorry England — until Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are photographed waving glow sticks at Ministry of Sound, I don’t want to hear about it.

BREAKING: I’ve just been informed that this is a video of King Willem-Alexander’s inauguration, where Armin was specifically asked to perform. However, what King Willem-Alexander isn’t telling you is that the whole inauguration thing was actually a ploy; he really just wanted to see Armin drop his Dead London edit of “Stresstest.”

Electro-House | Afrojack – Fatility

Posted by on March 13, 2012

Afrojack back at it again with yet another big release this week entitled Fatility. Still keeping the standards high after his previous release with Shermanology, this track brings in that same Dirty Dutch style we were so used to hearing from him in his early days. We saw little glimpses of this banger on live stream a few weeks ago and since then the fans have been dying for its release. Through the buildup we can progressively hear those signature Afrojack sounds we are so accustomed to hearing, while slowly building up to that sexy, high pitched dirty dutch drop. Ill leave you guys with some words from the wise, “If it ain’t Dutch it ain’t much.” -Middy.

Electro-House | Eric Prydz – “Call On Me” (Skrubz Remix)

Posted by on September 29, 2011

Skrubz has turned out to be a very well rounded producer. Starting off his little career with some dubstep and drum and bass, he has branched out over the summer, releasing house, electro, and now dutch tracks. “Call On Me” is one of the most legendary tracks in electronic music, but no one has seemed to think, ‘Oh hey! I should make a remix of this.’ Skrubz would not have been my first choice to do so, but after listening to this remix, he did an amazing job.
