FYI | Your Favorite DJs Before They Made It Big

Posted by on August 1, 2013

Tiesto, Armin & Ferry

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.

Events | Ultra Music Festival Phase 1 Lineup Announcement

Posted by on December 29, 2012

UMF, the crowned jewel of the American festival circuit, now in its 15th year making a historic shift going to 2 weekends, has announced many of the headliners for the festival in the first phase of artists announcements. Some of the big names include, Avicii, Armin van Buuren with ASOT 600, Above & Beyond, Fatboy Slim, Bassnectar, Carl Cox (who will be hosting his own arena), Kaskade, Deadmau5, who is returning after blasting them for a whole host of things last year, and SHM ending their one last tour with shows on Sundays of both weekends. A couple other pieces of info we do know about UMF is that ASOT will be on Sunday the 24, or the second weekend only, though Armin may be there both weekends, Deadmau5 is preparing something unique for this occasion and with live performances from guys like Matt & Kim & Boys Noize, this should be special UMF. If you are feeling nostaligic or are already gearing up to go this year, watch some of the recaps from last year on UMFTV.

Electro-House | Mikael Weermets vs Fatboy Slim – Right Here, Right Now 2012

Posted by on March 7, 2012

Get yourself ready for this track because the drop is going to hit you like an 18-wheeler. The song starts with much of the original track and its legendary vocal and then suddenly drops into a hard hitting electro synth that knocks you off your feet. Mikael Weermets throws in some dubstep to add to the energy, dropping the bass another level. The song is supposed to be a free giveaway on Facebook, but since the link does not work, i provided an alternative download below. After the jump check out a preview of an upcoming remix of his.

Compilation, House | Top 50 Dance Tracks Of 2013: 10-1

Posted by on January 13, 2010

Top 50 dance tracks of 2013
10. Alesso vs OneRepublic – If I Lose Myself (Alesso Remix)
Alesso’s seminal work this year, his remix for OneRepublic has gone global and then some. Ryan Tedder’s vocals are highly sought after, and meshed with Alesso’s ability to create melodies, the result was magical.

9. Duke Dumont ft. A*M*E* – Need U 100%
The Grammy nominated Duke Dumont had an amazing year with the release of this timeless deep house record. Straight from the UK, it doesn’t seem that Mr. Dumont will be stopping anytime soon with his latest release “I Got You.” Also shout out to Dave Edwards who gave “Need U” a second wind with his fun remix of the track.

8. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike & Moguai – Mammoth
Possibly the most played and popular big room / progressive track of the first 6 months of the year, Moguai’s collab with Dimitri Vegas & LIke Mike showed that complex melodies can be popular when amelodic festival drops were more and more common. It was played by everyone from your standards like Hardwell and Tiësto to guys like Ferry Corsten and Cosmic Gate.

7. Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais)
The original became very popular on its own, but Cedric Gervais’ rendition not only elevated his own career, but took this track to new heights across the dance and general music landscapes. It became a hit across radio stations and landed him a grammy nomination, something that matters this year now that there aren’t any scheming Rothscilds in the mix.

6. Breach – Jack
Iwantyourbodyeverybodywantsyourbodysoletsjack, let’s jack. Those vocals became inescapable this year from a more expected DJ set like Duke Dumont, to someone more surprising in Avicii, this tune was everywhere. Ben Westbreach’s single catapulted his career to the next level and became the marquee signing for Claude von Stroke’s Dirtybird Recordings. Creative genius Riff Raff directed the video. Enough said.

5. Fatboy Slim & Riva Starr ft. Beardyman – Eat Sleep Rave Repeat (Incl. Calvin Harris Remix)
It started a movement. “Eat Sleep Rave Repeat” became the Motto of dance music in 2013. Born from a wacked out man in Brooklyn, this has been Fatboy Slim’s return to production prominence. The Calvin Harris remix brought it to festivals everywhere with its powerful acid bassline.

4. Disclosure ft. AlunaGeorge – White Noise
Deep house went mainstream in 2013 and the main drivers of this trend were the super young British brothers, Guy & Howard Lawrence. The most blogged about artists of the first half of the year, edging out even the French robots, Disclosure had nearly unrivaled hype of any artist in any genre. “Settle” was one of the triumphs in dance music this year, but “White Noise” stood out as the biggest this year, though really every one of them deserves a spot on here.

3. Martin Garrix – Animals
You could not escape “Animals” this year a festival for better or worse. There are tracks that change the direction of dance music and this was one of them. That “Martin Garrix” sound become copied, imitated and generally abused by producers professional and amateur alike once they saw the popularity of “Animals”.

2. Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up
The flagship single from Avicii’s debut album “True”, Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” has become the symbol for his year of breaking boundaries, starting at Ultra and then with his album “True”. It has sold millions of copies around the world and has remained one of the most popular tracks, of any genre, throughout the whole year.

1. Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams – Get Lucky
“Animals” may have been the ubiquitous festival favorite this year, but dance music has gone far beyond the festival and club stage in the past few years. The hipster backlash against RAM was palpable, but the mastery and creative genius at work not only with Pharrell and Nile Rogers on “Get Lucky”, but throughout the whole album showed the robots were still the most innovative duo in dance. “Get Lucky” immediately found its way to every radio station, wedding, and DJ set, as a favorite of everyone from kids to grandparents. It is arguably not just the dance song of the year, but the song of the year, as denoted by its grammy nomination in the same category.
