[Video] @Tiesto reveals official video for “Light Years Away” ft. DBX

SEPT. 19, 2014

image

Tiesto’s A Town Called Paradise is a smashing success. Played heavily in clubs, at the world’s finest festivals and on the radio, singles “Red Lights” and “Wasted [featuring Matthew Koma]” have become true summer anthems; helping them both to achieve Gold status as certified by the RIAA. We’re betting on three times a charm with the third album single, "Light Years Away [featuring DBX].”

 

Set in a galaxy far, far away the “Light Years Away” video tells the story of a team – one female, one robot - on a mission to find signs of organic life. The female is longing for something, perhaps a lost companion or desire to revisit the past. All the while, right in front of her is her loyal partner who takes care of her unconditionally. It all ends up in a dazzling display of computer love.      

 


Tiesto celebrated his very first two Gold records in the United States with a special sold out “Gold Party” In conjunction with his CLUBLIFE residency at Hakkasan, on Friday night, September 12th. In addition to giving an electrifying performance loaded with hits, he unveiled the music video for "Light Years Away [featuring DBX]” to the delight of his fans. Check out some photos of the evening below.

 

Earlier this week, Tiësto brought the iconic Fountains of Bellagio to life with a never-before-heard medley of three songs off A Town Called Paradise. “Footprints,” “Rocky” and “Red Lights” will serve as the soundtrack to the newest show choreographed by WET, the original fountain creators. The medley is the first compilation created specifically for the Fountains of Bellagio and the only show set to electronic dance music. This is also the first time a composer has collaborated with WET on show choreography for the Bellagio fountains.

 

Tiesto will spend the remainder of 2014 touring in support of A Town Called Paradise; including notable appearances at TomorrowWorld, The Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park and his ongoing residency at Hakkasan in Las Vegas, among others.

AXWELL /\ INGROSSO SIGN TO DEF JAM RECORDINGS

SEPT. 19, 2014


The duo of 
Axwell /\ Ingrosso, former members of the legendary Swedish House Mafia, has been signed to an exclusive contract with Universal Music Group, to release new music and content in 2014 on Def Jam Recordings in the U.S. and Virgin/EMI in the UK, with their debut album coming in early 2015.  This will be the first official album from Axwell /\ Ingrosso, whose previous band, Swedish House Mafia never released a full studio album, despite selling over 10 million records worldwide.  (Two compilation albums were issued in 2010 (Until One) and 2012 (Until Now), on Virgin Records/Astralwerks.)
 
"We are proud at Def Jam to have Axwell /\ Ingrosso choose us to be their label home. Their music is forward, innovative, invigorating and boundless,” said Steve Bartels, CEO of Def Jam Recordings. "Def Jam has the artistry and energy of DJ culture within its pedigree, right there in our logo. This is a significant moment for all of us as at Def Jam."
           
Swedish House Mafia was renowned for selling out Madison Square Garden in nine minutes for their concert in 2012, without any album in the marketplace.  The group disbanded in March 2013, after playing their final sets that month at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Emerging as a duo, Axwell /\ Ingrosso premiered new music with influential BBC radio personality Zane Lowe in late March 2014. “I was lucky enough to go down to the studio this week, listen to a whole bunch of songs. It’s going to be incredible,” Lowe raved on air. “It’s a whole new era for these two.”
 
In early June, the band landed back in the US for their first headlining gigs at Governors Ball in New York City, followed by Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. The Los Angeles Times heralded their set: “Freed from the expectations of being in one of the globe’s biggest bands, the duo’s set was simultaneously more challenging and more playful than anything their previous project could do…Axwell /\ Ingrosso's set found them working out different ideas about tension and song craft…One new tune, which fans have given a working title of “On My Way,” felt like it had pop-hit potential with an immediately memorable chorus. But the long, well-spaced drum builds and crowd-teasing pacing felt entirely new for the duo.”
Axwell /\ Ingrosso (with third member Steve Angello) began collaborating in 2007 as Swedish House Mafia, which became a multi-platinum household name success across Europe by the end of 2010, with “One” featur­­ing Pharrell, and “Miami 2 Ibiza” vs. Tinie Tempah.  “Save the World” extended their run into 2011, along with “Antidote” vs. Knife Party. 
 
"Don’t You Worry" featuring John Martin was SHM’s breakthrough hit in 2012, #1 in the UK, Sweden and Australia, and Top 10 in most territories around the world, including the U.S., where it was certified RIAA triple-platinum.  It was in late-2012 when SHM announced they would disband at the end of their One Last Tour in 2013, paving the way for this year’s emergence of Axwell /\ Ingrosso.

[Review] Clean Bandit on their first US Tour @WebsterHall

SEPT. 17, 2014

image



Last night at Webster Hall, New York, Lizzo the volumptious red headed firecracker opened up for one of Clean Bandit's stops on their “FIRST EVER American Tour,” which they proudly announced before their performance. Lizzo kept the crowd fully entertained not only with her head bopping high energy music, but also with her humor. At some point she even brought a young man from the crowd up on stage to twerk with her and I must say, it was definitely a show down.


Once Lizzo wrapped up, constant hopeful head pops between the stage and back down at cell phone clocks were a sight throughout the increasingly antsy crowd. While impatiently awaiting for Clean Bandit myself, I took in the atmosphere of the maroon old fashioned wall paper, ripped purposefully and graffiti’d, street art style. I also looked above to notice beautiful cream chandeliers still sprawled across its ceiling since its opening in 1886, along with modern colored lights above and soon realized this was the perfect venue for such a unique and mixed genre band itself.


At last, the British electronic group went on stage and began to show off their innumerably diverse set of songs by intertwining the elements of each member of the band. Grace Chatto contributed with her powerful voice, Jack Patterson on the keyboard with the electronic beat, Luke Patterson bringing the rock and roll on the drums and last but not least, violinist Milan Neil Amin-Smith adding the sweet classical switch up that everyone loves in their radio hit “Rather Be." With such a variety of talent mushed into one band, throughout the show they were able to play the slowest songs to the danciest and get the crowd both fist pumping and swaying at just the right moments.

                                                               Milan Neil Amin-Smith in his zone

Clean Bandit ended the night with “Rather Be" and had the whole crowd singing along and dancing in harmony. And on that note, to conclude my night, I’d say they are a fantastic show, if you like just being happy with a room full of people, listening to a band with the ability to play pretty much any type of song, they are just your cup of British tea.

So if you like their popular hit on the radio, check out some of their other songs on their NEW album “New Eyes" like my personal favorite:



Available to purchase on Itunes or Amazon

Look out for Hunter Siegel’s New EP “New School Renegade/ Time to Black Out vs. Todd Terry” Out SEPTEMBER 22

SEPT. 15, 2014

image


On September 22, Size records will release Hunter Siegel's EP, but for now we are left with the 40 second previews that just aren't enough time for the retro beats of the former Killabits member. Siegel has proven to be “a perfect addition to Size with his unique hybrid of new and old school techniques” due to his years of knowledge in DJing and it is this use of throwbacks that has artists like Skrillex, Adventure Club, Tchami, Dvbbs, Oliver Heldens and more lifting their brows. New School Renegade and Time to Black Out are just examples of what you should hear in the upcoming months as Hunter Siegel continues to rise on his own and gain support from all kinds of big names with his different, vintage-modern sound.


To listen to the previews that leave you wanting more:




Look out for the full EP coming out in just one week!!

Chainsmokers “King of Me” Tour Dates Released

SEPT. 13, 2014


The makers of the viral hit “#SELFIE" are on a worldwide tour this month with a new track entitled "Kanye,” ft. SirenXX dubbed after the “King of Me" himself, Kanye West, famously known for being conceited and self confident. The Chainsmokers are not only successful on the EDM charts but also to music lovers that are not particularly fans of Electronic Dance because of their relatable songs about current trends. Whether it was “#SELFIE” about the recent obsession of taking selfies or “Kanye” about the self confidence everyone wants but always makes fun of Kanye West for on twitter and facebook (see example below), The Chainsmokers make incredible songs because they produce with an array of listeners they aim to connect to, and are likely to continue peaking the charts with whatever they steam out.
