I could give you a fancy write up with eloquent words about Avicii’s controversial electronic-folk at Ultra in Miami this year. I could write about Avicii’s response via Facebook and how he’s changing the “EDM” landscape. I could also talk about his recent “promo mix” he released. I don’t feel like it though, because it’s Sunday, I’m tired, and don’t have the brain power. I will say this though, I believe “Wake Me Up” could become a summer anthem. *Puts plur cowboy hat on and rides off into the blog sunset.*

New York duo, The Knocks have exploded onto the scene in the past year or two riding the crest of the nu-disco wave that has had a resurgence globally in line with the resurgence of EDM stateside. Coming off of several outstanding remixes, The Knocks return to originals in the same unique style that has driven their success.
Their latest effort tabs South African singer, St Lucia to deliver a silky smooth vocal top line that meshes impeccably with the instrumental from The Knocks. This intoxicatingly funky track is destined to be on repeat with its masterfully layered synths and arps that stand out as incredibly unique during this resurgence of nu-disco.

Australian Cover Girls Mim and Liv, aka Nervo, fresh off of the release of their single with Omarion “Army“, release their latest track “Hold On“, a high energy vocal single sure to elevate their sets. The rise to stardom for the Nervo twins has been well documented, starting by writing songs for big pop stars and even some of the biggest EDM artists, to now as established rising stars with strings of huge releases over the past few years, propelling them onto MainStages all across the globe and making them one of the hottest (literally) duos around. Co-produced by R3hab, “Hold On”, relies on powerful guitar riffs, etheral vocals and sturdy bass line to create a potential pop hit for the duo. Watch for remixes coming May 7th.

Last weekend, we sat down with trance legends (and noted bromance) Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz before their massive set as the New World Punx at A State of Trance 600 NYC. On the dockett? EDM, bank robberies, and the story behind those hilarious New World Punx comics. The Expedition tour had its explosive finale last night in Den Bosch, and while we’re sad that it’s come to an end, we’re very excited to see what Ferry and Markus have in store for us in 2013. From what we gathered in New York, these two definitely have some serious tricks up their sleeve.

Kill Paris makes straight up baby making music. There is no way around it. He may be the Barry White of EDM — if Barry White was small, white and took slightly creepy pictures in sunflower fields, but I digress. Kill Paris’ combinination of funk, soul, grit and electro makes his sound ideal for what Rudimental brings to the table for what was one my favorite tracks in 2012 and one of the biggest dnb tracks of the year commercially. The remix keeps John Newman’s soulful vocals and lets Kill Paris work his magic, giving it the unique flavor of gritty undercurrents and playful piano motifs that create almost an entirely new track.

I’m usually not a fan of listening to long mixes, but whenever you’re dealing with an artist who has no original releases under his name and is so exclusive, but somehow manages to have one of the craziest fan followings it’s hard to not post it. SPACE LACES is probably one of the biggest up and coming artist in the EDM scene, whether you knew about him a while ago, or are just learning about him this is just the beginning. This artist creates everything from nu-disco, to glitch, to dirty electro, all the way to the heaviest dubstep tracks you have ever imagined. People who follow him get up everyday just hoping for a release from this one of a kind artist. I would recommend everyone check him out because it is only a matter of time before his name is everywhere in the EDM world.
