Avicii sets another record

Wake Me Up, the new single of Avicii, has reached the number 1 spot in the UK charts. It is also the fastest selling track this year, beating Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke and Pharell. It sold nearly 267.000 copies in only a week, compared to 76.000 copies of Blurred Lines.  

How Clubbing Changed the World

How Clubbing Changed the World

First of all, who knew Idris Elba (aka The Wire‘s “Stringer Bell”) was a fan of dance music? Second of all, who knew he had an English accent? Okay, the details: Last year, the native Londoner, along with the BBC, assembled a solid documentary on the history of clubbing—basically a top-20 countdown of the most significant events in dance music’s legacy.

“Jack” has successfully creeped its way from the deep house sets of masters like Maya Jane Coles and Shadow Child to the EDC main stage sets of Calvin Harris and Tiësto. The track was first released by Dirtybird records back in April, and is now seeing a re-release under Atlantic. Breach, the house music alter ego of multitalented singer/songwriter/DJ/producer Ben Westbeech, melded this simple yet incredibly effective track that will continue to be played out across all genres alike until you’re sick of jacking.

Destructo takes us all “Higher” with new music vid

Gary Richards, also affectionately known as Destructo, has played a crucial role in Dance Music’s growth, but up until this point, not so much as an artist. Gary is best known as the founder of HARD, the national event company responsible for such amazing shows as HARD Halloween, HARD Summer, and even the Dance Music cruise Holy Ship! Gary’s alter ego Destructo has been playing shows for just as long but on a much smaller scale. It wasn’t until the past two years that Destructo has started to find his own Tech House-Deep House voice that’s steadily setting him apart from everyone else.  

Gesaffelstein gets techno sweaty & high fashion with “Pursuit” music vid

Gesaffelstein gets techno sweaty & high fashion with “Pursuit” music vid

Gesaffelstein is a man in a world all unto his own. The French maestro exudes an air of IDGAF-ness that only makes him that much cooler. He plays techno, he’s an unabashed chain smoker, he dresses well, girls swoon over him, and his beats will make you sweat. “Pursuit” is no different, driving through a mercilessly slowed down 4/4 beat that chugs along at a pace that will get anyone wet. I already imagine the crazy techno club where this is blaring over massive speakers upon the clergy of clubgoers. The video is also something entirely new, showcasing Gesaffelstein’s proclivity for high fashion and uniformly pleasing aesthetics. It’s fun to watch and even better to listen to.

The Light releases opening night vid that will wow

The Light releases opening night vid that will wow

We’ve been wondering what was going to happen with Mandalay Bay’s newest creation The Light that was created with the help of the always amazing Cirque Du Soleil. While we didn’t get a chance to have some good old fashioned sin city fun during Memorial Day weekend, we do get a glimpse into one of the best new clubs on the strip. The party didn’t stop thanks to sets from Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and the Clarity master Zedd. Although the vid is far too short for my liking, it only makes all of us (when I say us I mean everyone I know) want to go that much more. Do you have plans to get out to Vegas anytime soon? EDC anyone? Well, don’t miss the chance to experience everything The Light has to offer when you’re out there. From the looks of things, it won’t be easily forgotten.  

EDC Vegas trailer will get you pumped for next month

EDC Vegas trailer will get you pumped for next month

The time that every raver looks forward to is almost upon us. EDC Vegas is right around the corner and to make sure your excitement level is at the max they’ve now released the 2013 trailer. I don’t know if it’s as much a trailer (remember trailers are supposed to make you want to go to something, as if EDC even needs that) as it is a short movie of everything that’s great about EDC. Minus the obviously staged intro (do those people even know what PLUR means?), this is a great showing of what goes on for one very special weekend in Vegas. The Electric Daisy Carnival is truly a festival unlike any other, attracting people from all over the United States and even the world, with a line up that would make anyone drool. It’s getting harder and harder for Pasquale’s Insomniac to top itself every year, but we have no doubt they have some tricks up their sleeves that will won’t disappoint. See it for yourself above and prepare yourself for the carnival of a lifetime.
