The Disco Fries have royally thrown down the gauntlet on their Bootleg Pack Vol. 3. We originally slated the Tiësto, Diplo and Busta Rhymes collaboration when that originally came out two years ago; (with the guys in question deciding to include Busta’s vocals over the top). But as time heals all wounds, The Disco Fries in 2013, kick out the original instrumental and replace it with Deniz Koyu’s ‘Tung’ with much better effects. Swedish House Mafia & NERVO look to The Disco Fries for a welcomed renovation build that highlights their previous anthemic work, whilst T.D.F. use Sander Van Doorn, [...]
Asia's biggest dance festival descends on Goa once again.
Sander Van Doorn celebrates another triumphant run at Winter Music Conference with an official after movie showcasing another year of hard work and play in the name of electronic dance music. With eight years of mainstay action (the conference and its high profile events alike), Sander pinpoints the high energy nature of this essential calendar mark against the back drop of an exclusive new track from the Doorn Records maestro himself. Launching between press spots, boat rides, and numerous DJ cameos for the likes of UMF and Spinnin Sessions alike, it takes just two [...]
Back in 2006 the dance music landscape was much different than it is today. Still a decidedly underground experience in the US, many of today's biggest artists were delivering sets that would shock and disappoint the festival crowds of 2013. I concede the point that it's most likely a purely subjective opinion, that nothing much has changed in the scene except for my age and my perspective. Then I listen to Sander van Doorn 's 2006 Essential Mix debut and I start to think otherwise. Call it the nostalgia for a simpler time, but simplicity is the one thing [...]
Mashups can be tricky to pull off, and it's pretty rare to find one that's truly successful, but one producer that gets us every time is Brooklyn's HÔHME . Without fail, every single one of his mashups is incredibly on point and unbelievably well executed. His most recent creation mixes together Audien's killer new track Wayfarer, with Sultan, Ned Shepard, and Taryn Manning's Send Me Your Love . The transitions are impossibly smooth, track choice is perfection, and overall production as crisp as we could wish for. Grab the free download below and kick off the week [...]
After the amazing Week 1 of the Ultra Music Festival , Week 2 took Miami and EDM enthusiasts by storm. Not only was this year’s lineup bigger and better than ever, but the festival had grown to the point where festival organizers might want to consider expanding the festival grounds yet again (the festival was previously held in Bicentennial Park, and was moved to Bayfront Park in 2011). However, the thousands of attendees certainly didn't mind the cramped quarters and came out in full-force to worship the talents of Above & Beyond , Tiesto , Calvin Harris , and Fatboy Slim , to only [...]
