Another one of my favourites, John Dahlback! Epic new big room track with vocals from fellow Swedish musicians, the guys of Urban Cone. It’s not often that I enjoy a big room track with so many wobbles but this definitely works. Beautiful vocals, heavy drop – this track has edge. Available for purchase on iTunes, I’ll be spinning this one as often as I can this season. Yeah boy!
Fifth single from her seventh studio album, What Now was officially released to radio on 1 October this year. It’s quite a hard hitting emotional track, with praiseworthy vocals from Rihanna. Being a massive fan, it’s hard to not ramble on about what an amazingly powerful ballad this is and how in love I am with the crashing drums and lyrics that are so true and relatable! So I’ll stop now. The video was shot in Thailand, and I’ve read up that this track is included in her set list for The Diamonds World Tour. Cape Town 16 October 2013, less than two weeks away I am LOSING MY SHIT. As always, Love you Riri.
Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) has started a series of episodes, taking some high profile schlebs on a coffee run in his Ferrari and posting the video online afterwards. I watched the entire episode with Zedd, and there is one featuring comedian Russell Peters. But PHARRELL, this is a real treat! Put this on the to-do-list for when you have 35 minutes to spare.
Debut studio album Get Wet by American electronic music group Krewella is set for release in the United States on 24 September 2013. Singles released so far include Alive, Come and Get It and Live for the Night which are all on the upcoming album. Via this link, Krewella fans can preview each track from the full length album on iTunes. I’ve had a listen through most of them so far, and it’s left me yearning to get my hands on the full record. Click here to listen via iTunes… Thanks Krew!
Out of all the Get Lucky covers I’ve watched (and there have been many) this is the most unlikely one I thought I’d ever see. At a show they did in Connecticut at the Mohegan Sun Arena on September 5th, Fall Out Boy did a quick cover of Daft Punk’s huge comeback of 2013. The video goes on to show a bit of What A Catch Donnie. Not the best quality, but it gives you an idea of how incredible it must have been to experience that and sing along!
It’s so great to be able to watch videos and interviews like this with such amazing DJs and producers! It’s even better when they are so honest and frank in their response. Steve Angello is definitely someone whose opinion and life is very influential in today’s music industry. Watch how he chats about takes on music in the US and UK, his views on playing different gigs and his upcoming album!
After most festivals in the US and Europe, we’re usually blessed with artists posting their sets online for us to listen to. This time however, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike have posted the full video of their performance of Tomorrowland this year.
Along with being able to hear every track they played, how it was brought in (with bearable audio quality), we get to see the duo in action. What I also like, is that one gets to hear and see the crowd response, lights and basically the entire visual experience. Without the energy, thrill, smells and vibe of actually being at the show which is a vital element of any festival. As far as experiencing an international festival though, this is as close as many of us will ever get! Big up DMLV!
