Trance | Rambacy feat. Danny Claire – New Life (Cold Rush Remix)

Posted by on November 10, 2014

Rambacy feat. Danny Claire - New Life (Cold Rush Remix)
Trance enthusiasts will enjoy this one. Bringing energetic life into Rambacy’s progressive “New Life,” Cold Rush have done it again. This Estonian duo is not an unfamiliar name in the Trance scene. Indeed, they have stuck to their roots, pushing us into a state of trance with crushing bass and emotional synths as we fly at 138 BPM, consistently. This track is a pure example of what you can expect from the legendary Abora Recordings. Cold Rush have become essential additions to the toolkits of producer/DJ’s like Armin Van Buuren, Paul Oakenfold, Ronski Speed, Binary Finary, and Aly & Fila and 2014 shows no sign of slowing down. Close your eyes and reach out as Cold Rush extend their hand, helping you take a step off the edge of reality to a new existence.

Progressive House | Hardwell & W&W – The Dance Floor Is Yours

Posted by on September 5, 2014

A few months ago, during an interview at A State of Trance 650 in Utrecht, Hardwell offered the following response to Armin Van Buuren in regards to what his album might sound like:

“I’m experimenting with a lot of new, different sounds. I’m a bit sick of the same formula that’s going on in EDM right now so I’m just trying to change boundaries and look at what’s going on in the rest of the world. Even in the hip hop scene and the trance scene and try to combine as much as possible.” [VIDEO]

I’m going to let that marinate as you listen to this new offering from Hardwell. Ha!

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.


FYI | The DJ Mag Top 100 Poll Is Live, Thank God

Posted by on July 16, 2013


Has it really only been five minutes nine months since the results of the 2012 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll? Wow. That totally flew by.

The DJ Mag poll is more than just a poll, of course; it’s an increasingly dominant internet sideshow that is about to become a larger part of your life than you’d probably like. How we’ve missed the pageantry of it all — the fervent sense of camaraderie that gets expressed through status updates (see above); the earnest pleas to our finer sensibilities (“a vote for Steve Aoki is a vote for pandas!”); the reliable kvetching from @Deadmau5 (“lol fuk this poll…even though I always crush the top 5 #whatever”); and, of course, the overwhelming sense of inevitability anticipation (spoiler alert: Armin wins in 2013). The only thing better than Shark Week is the DJ Mag Top 100 Poll!

In truth, this year’s poll is already shaping up to be even more unbearable than ever, due to two very distinct forces coming together to create a veritable perfect storm of awfulness:

1) Hashtags over everything. (Case in point: Ferry Corsten is now a hashtag on his own Facebook page.)

2) The EDM Explosion of 2010-Present — or whatever phrase du jour you, your grandmother, and/or The New York Times are using to refer to this awesome/terrible watershed moment in our musical metanarrative.

So if you think you’re in for anything more than a whole lotta this for the next three months…well, LOL, bro. That’s adorable.
