Henry Fong Press Shot

Henry Fong has done several tunes with each of these two, and now it was time to bring all three DJs on the same track. The track combines elements of reggae, thumping electro house, and quick changes of bpms, making it another unique selection in the three of these producer’s growing, powerful discographies. The track has already barreled its way into the sets and radio shows of Knife Party, Hardwell, Dyro, W&W and Nicky Romero, with plenty more to come after its October 28th release on Spinnin’.

Events | Five Things We Can’t Wait For At Electric Zoo 2013

Posted by on August 8, 2013

Summer is flying by, which is bittersweet on one hand but totally amazing on the other. Why? Because it means that we’re getting closer and closer to Electric Zoo’s blowout fifth year. If you’re not up on your EZoo life, check out our official recap video from last year and see what you missed. Yeah — it was pretty killer. Fortunately, this year is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever for many reasons, not least of which are:

1) Two mainstages (count ’em, TWO) and an expanded festival site on Randall’s Island. More on that later.

2) A new 18 and up policy. Sorry, youths (#YOUTHS) of the world — I’m too old for your shenanigans and look forward to mingling with an older and wiser crowd. *Wheezes; testily gestures for you to GET OFF MY LAWN.*

3) A totally killer lineup — which is par for the course by EZoo’s standards. There’s lots to be excited about here, but we’ve come up with five things that we’re especially stoked for. Check ’em out after the jump.


Events | Electric Zoo Announces Full Lineup of Afterparties + Grounds Update

Posted by on August 8, 2013

Electric Zoo 2013 Map
One of the big announcements for this year’s Electric Zoo was the addition of the second MainStage, which brought a lot of excitement at the new lineup possibilities, but also some questions as to where they would put it. Well now they have answered that question, with a map layout that puts the entrance near the Sunday School Groove Tent and the second MainStage opposite the 3 tent stages. I believe there won’t be an issue with noise bleeding, like there was at EDC NYC, but one issue may be with it getting very crowded walking along that path, especially at night and with inebriated festival-goers.

Made Event has teased a few afterparties in the past week or so, but now they have revealed all 14, bringing in Cielo and Output for a much more housey landscape. If you want to brave the crowds at Pacha, they have strong lineups, but if not, your more mainstream sounds will be championed by the bigger Roseland Ballroom, hosting the likes of Benassi, Dyro, The Machine, W&W and Deniz Koyu. Best Buy Theater will be your place for bass music with Flux and friends on Friday, Adventure Club and friends on Sunday and an intriguing show of Rudimental, Delta Heavy and Modeselektor on Saturday. If you are willing to make the hour-long commute to Brooklyn after the show for some house, Output is for you, with Dirtybird taking over in what will be one of the better afterparties, while Laurent Garnier takes over for a marathon solo set on Sunday, and Friday has a double-header at Output and Cielo. There is something for everyone at these afters that will allow you to keep the party going and get no sleep over Labor Day Weekend. Full schedule after the jump, and grab your tickets below. You can still grab tickets for the festival here.

Electro-House, Progressive House | Rihanna ft David Guetta – Right Now (Remixes)

Rihanna ft David Guetta – Right Now (Remixes)
Pop vixen Rihanna has become one of the leaders in bringing dance music into popular music, for better of for worse, collaborating with Calvin Harris, David Guetta numerous times and on “Right Now” bringing on the talents of Nicky Romero for what he called a “basic” production. While the track has had staying value for radio play and commercially, being an anthem for the NBA playoffs, as a club weapon it needed a facelift and that is exactly what it got from a group of Dutchmen in this remix package.

Dyro does not change too much, but rather adds his own gritty formula that blends with the original melody, beefing up the bass line as a possible track for more commercial audiences. Sick Individuals took more liberties with the track, adding a rolling, pitched bass line and big room synths to make this my favorite of the two, though the Dyro remix has received the brunt of the publicity.

Albums, Review | Tiesto Club Life Volume 3: Stockholm (Album Review)

Posted by on June 26, 2013

tiesto club life volume 3

If there is a man who has a firm grip on the pulse on the current state of clubland, it is the king of dance music, Tiesto. His consistent support has given rise to countless talents that are mainstays on festival and club stages all across the globe. Whether or not you like his move from trance to big room house, he has been on the forefront of the trends of dance music every step of the way, from his In Search Of Sunrise compilations, to now his 3rd cataloged Club Life compilation.

Much of the compilation draws on Tiesto’s recent anthology. Whether it is his very underrated remix of Passion Pit’s “Carried Away”, or his recent single in the lead up to the release “Take Me”, the compilation shows the tireless nature of Tiesto and his team to get top of line productions out onto the market. The previous 2 Club Life compilations were named after US cities Las Vegas & Miami, respectively, as an ode to their place in his life and his musical career. He has now chosen Swedish capitol, Stockholm as his next tribute, not only because of enormous talent possessed by the producers in the Scandinavian dance music mecca, but also in his incredibly nomadic lifestyle, he calls Stockholm one his homes.
