Events | Markus Schulz Kicks Off the North American SCREAM Tour with Support from KhoMha and The M Machine

Posted by on April 10, 2013


Hot off of his monster New World Punx set at Madison Square Garden at the end of March, Markus Schulz takes to the road this evening to kick off his massive (and first ever) U.S. bus tour. With coast-to-coast stops in a number of major cities, there’s plenty of opportunity to catch Markus, KhoMha, and The M Machine over the next month. What can you expect? Markus’s distinctive brand of dark, relentless trance, some hard and techy goodness from Coldharbour protege KhoMha, and the fascinating and high-energy cocktail of house, electro and dubstep that The M Machine are rapidly becoming known for. All told, this is a diverse lineup comprised of artists notorious for pushing the envelope musically. Well, and in other ways, too; to quote Markus, “Am I going to be getting behind the wheel of the Markus Schulz tour bus at some point? Damn straight.” Hope you’ve got a CDL tucked away somewhere, Unicorn Slayer.

Progressive House, Trance | Armin van Buuren feat. Trevor Guthrie – This Is What It Feels Like (Original + W&W Remix)

Posted by on April 8, 2013


With his fifth studio album “Intense” set for release May 3rd, Armin van Buuren has released the first single “This Is What It Feels Like” from the album with Trevor Guthrie on vocals. Getting its premier on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection, “This Is What It Feels Like” is a departure from the more traditional trance roots that has made Armin van Buuren the beloved figure he is today, but as he has stated time and time again “Don’t be a prisoner to your own style”. I was a little skeptical at first, but the emotion and big melodies won me over and after seeing Trevor Guthrie perform it live at Madison Square Garden, I could’t help but love this tune.

There are few producers hotter than W&W right now. Their bombastic beats have taken the world by storm, becoming staples of mainstage and hard core trance sets alike. Their remix of “This Is What It Feels Like” got its fitting premier on the main stage at Ultra and has been a potent weapon for Armin at all of his shows since. W&W continue to show with this remix that their thunderous bass lines and booming synths are some of the most effective being made right now and show no signs of letting up. In other news, Armin revealed the tracklist for “Intense”, which you can check out after the jump.

Events, Review, Trance | The Expedition’s Trance Takeover of Madison Square Garden

Posted by on April 6, 2013


Wow, Wichita State is crushing Ohio State. This is not even close, who woulda thunk it. The bartender refills my glass as I watch the Shockers do just that, shock the basketball world and everyone’s bracket. Man was mine totally ruined, but at least I wasn’t the guy who picked georgetown to go all the way — dunk city. I look at my phone, 8:10. I am pushing the limit of how long I can stay at the bar because I need to get over to Madison Square Garden and sneak down past some security guards to a seat that isn’t in the obstructed view section. I close out and head over to the Garden to navigate the line and get inside.

The line is nonexistent, so I walk through and head up to the first level to probe the defenses of the seat security like a prized fighter trying to find the weak spot of my enemy. I see some other people dancing the same dance I am and as a group we would like to thank the kid in the teal tank who was escorted out of section 102 and left the entrance unguarded, letting the stream of approximately me and 4 other kids into the section. Thank you, because my seat put me dead center and I could see the entire arena laid out in front of me.

Electro-House | Nari & Milani – Atom

Posted by on April 9, 2012

The “Atom” bomb from Nari & Milani has finally been unleashed on the entire world after its full unveiling at Madison Square Garden by Swedish House Mafia that left everyone speechless. Nari & Milani are no strangers to the game, having been doing this for over 10 years and know how to make big tracks. They have had successful songs during their time as producers, but nothing with the notoriety or the power as “Atom”. As Alesso’s motto says “Less is More” and this song much like Sandro Silva & Quintano’s anthem “Epic” before them showed, quick percussive bursts in the break will send any crowd into a frenzy and are perfect for the summer festival environment. The build of the song sets up the drop perfectly, putting you on edge with its ominous melodies and synth chords leaving you with the expectation that something massive is going to happen. Then the bass and percussion in the drop hits and madness ensues. Clip from MSG below and the official clip here.
