Benny Benassi + System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian collaborate on “Shooting Helicopters”

AUG. 16, 2014


Benny Benassi’s been a music machine this summer cranking out hit after hit to soundtrack the hottest months of the year. His newest track,
“Shooting Helicopters,”  comes with a big twist in that he’s recruited one of rock music’s most unique voices - Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) - to create one of the most compelling big room tracks you’ve heard in a long time. 

 

“Shooting Helicopters” is a true song that takes full advantage of Serj’s amazing vocal range. His heartfelt lyrics and quirky delivery builds until Benny releases an electro storm onto the dance floor. You can lose yourself in this one.

 

What you have with “Shooting Helicopters” is the finished product for an idea that started well over a year ago. Benny always admired Serj’s vocal prowess and talent but wasn’t sure he’d want to work with an electronic dance music producer - they met for the first time in Los Angeles in mid 2013 and hit it off immediately. They started bouncing ideas backwards and forwards and spent about six months refining the track that has become “Shooting Helicopters.”

 

“The idea of bringing Serj’s vocal style into our musical environment was a real challenge. As soon as Alle and I started experimenting with the music under the vocals, I was immediately struck by the atmosphere of the song which is decidedly different from most things you here at the festivals I play at and unlike anything we’ve done so far, ourselves. I started playing embryonic versions out, especially as a set opener and the effect was devastating. We kept working on the music until we were 100% satisfied. I’d like to thank Serj for being part of this. Respect,” Benassi says.

 

If you’re having trouble waiting for Benny Benassi’s upcoming artist album then sink your teeth into his recent releases below, including Benny Benassi & John Legend, ‘Dance the Pain Away’ (Eelke Kleijn Remix), Benny Benassi - ‘Kaleidoscope (Feat. Kerli)and the amazing NSFW video for “Let This Last Forever (featuring Gary Go).”   Don’t miss Benny Benassi live at New York City’s Electric Zoo on August 30th.

This Fall, GET TRASHED!

AUG. 15, 2014


Having destroyed Las Vegas and Miami early this year with his “Trashed” events, Tommy Trash is ready to bring the party on the road this fall for the first time ever. Following the release of his monster single ‘Lord Of The Trance’ (one of the top 5 most played tracks at Tomorrowland) and a heavy summer festival schedule consisting of Electric Daisy Carnival (Vegas and NYC), HARD Summer, Tomorrowland, and Creamfields amongst others, Tommy is hitting a number of North America’s top clubs in September and October.

 

"Trashed came about when I signed my first Las Vegas residency back in 2012. I wanted to create this insane party where my fans could connect with the REAL Tommy Trash. I’d control the environment and experience for my fans like never before. For me, Trashed is the party that you might not remember the next day but you know you had the best f**king time of your life," Tommy says. 

 

Joining Tommy on tour for select dates will be Henry Fong & Wax Motif, two of his closest DJ friends and rising stars in the dance music scene. Henry Fong is having a whirlwind year with a number of chart-topping releases such as “Stand Up”, “Encore” and “Slapjack” alongside debut performances at some of the world’s largest dance music festivals. Wax Motif recently garnered attention for  his releases from some of the biggest names in dance music including Tiësto, Steve Aoki, Nicky Romero and Destructo, to name a few. Be on the lookout for two upcoming Tommy Trash collaborations with both of these rising stars.

 

Having debuted Trashed at his Las Vegas residency, Tommy brought the party to Miami in March. Now, according to the man himself, "This year I want to bring Trashed to you; this is only the beginning."

[Update] EPMD Added as Special Guest for Verboten Presents The dirtybird BBQ with Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Christian Martin + more

AUG. 14, 2014

image


San Francisco’s
dirtybird crew touches down in Brooklyn with their infamous dirtybird BBQ for a big day of sizzling grooves, food and fun in the sun on Sunday, August 17. Labelhead Claude VonStroke brings his entire cadre of fellow ‘birds, including Justin Martin, Kill Frenzy, Christian Martin, Justin Jay, Ardalan and surprise guest, EPMD. The dirtybird BBQ takes place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at 50 Kent Ave. with an afterparty to follow at Verboten.
EPMD is one of NYC’s pioneering hip-hop duos, re-defining hip-hop sampling by stepping away from disco and embracing funk and rock breaks. Bursting onto the scene in the late 80s with their inimitable Eric Clapton sampling single ‘Strictly Business’, EPMD were the first to introduce some of hip-hops most sourced samples to the genre. 
 
EPMD was always one of my favorite rap groups. They invented a super laid-back flow that has been imitated by countless artists that followed after them.  I’m so excited to see them in Brooklyn at our party," says Claude VonStroke.

The whole dirtybird crew will entertain on the decks of an outdoor stage with their signature bass-driven brand of house music, while Chef Grillson and chef Chris McLaughlin cook up a selection of  BBQ available while supplies last. The menu includes a pig roast with pulled pork cubans and sliders, baby back ribs, dirtybird wings, shrimp skewers, veggie burgers and Italian ice. Arrive early for complimentary sliders! Beer and wine will also be available for purchase. With minimum fist-pumping and maximum booty-shaking, the dirtybird BBQ promises to be one of the most down to earth, fun parties of the summer.

Barclay Crenshaw created the quirky alias Claude VonStroke in 2005 and went on to become one of the most well respected label owners and DJs in dance music. Since the creation of dirtybird, Claude has continued to be the dedicated A&R man, signing over 100 EPs and demonstrating his incredible ear for what works on the dance-floor. This September, a much-anticipated third artist album will come from the dirtybird chief. Listen to his latest EP ‘CaliFuture’ BELOW.

Justin Martin initially attracted the attention of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record “The Sad Piano” on Ben Watt’s Buzzin’ Fly label. Mentored by fellow super producer Claude VonStroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records, appearing on its first four releases. His sound is typically described as “melodic and tough” with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth, yet always with enough undeniable ass-shaking properties to translate to the floor.

Kill Frenzy worked his way into the production game rather quickly after discovering the fast dirty booty house tracks coming from Chicago and Detroit at the age of 17. Not wanting to limit himself to just one style he started working on producing various styles including house, techno, tech-house, and minimal. In 2012 Kill Frenzy debuted on dirtybird with “Make that Booty Clap” featuring DJ Funk, which became a track widely known across the world.

Since 1995, Christian Martin has been exploring electronic music from full-moon parties in the deserts of California to the thumping, dark corners of the London club scene. He set the standard for a new era of die-hard dedicated DIY producers in 2003 when he bought his first sound system, and since then his devotion to large-scale bass has allowed him to champion the dirtybird sound out of the park and onto giant soundsystems at clubs and festivals worldwide.

After catching ears in 2010 when he won a DJ contest sponsored by DJ Mag, Justin Jay landed an apprenticeship at Atlantic Records with DJ Frank E working on dance-infused pop and hip-hop. With a true calling for groovy deep house and raunchy tech, Justin is back to making all sorts of unique electronic music within the underground scene of the industry.

Ardalan possesses a fresh perspective on music genesis without even trying. His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass and energy, but his original tracks are where his efforts shine. His ability to whip out hits that work equally well from the dankest basements to the most opulent dance floors is the greatest strength in his music.

[Out Now] Stafford Brothers, “This Girl” Feat. Eva Simons & T.I. + Remixes

AUG. 14, 2014

image


The world-class DJ/producer duo, the Stafford Brothers, release their new single, “This Girl" featuring Eva Simons & T.I., along with four remixes, on CHM Records. Following up on their triple platinum selling single, “Hello” featuring Lil Wayne and Christina Milian, the three-times voted #1 DJs in Australia deliver another smash that has already been taking over the airwaves down under. In collaboration with global superstars Eva Simons and T.I., the Stafford Brothers have crafted an irresistible vocal house jam that’s just as fitting for rocking dance floors as it is for radio.


In addition to the original “This Girl,” the Staffords have rounded out the release with four remixes of the single from up-and-coming artists - Togglehead, Parker Ighile, SCNDL, and Tom Swoon. Toronto-based Togglehead brings his own rave-ready vibe on his banging electro-house remix, while Parker Ighile goes for a groove-driven sound with his deep house rendition. Australia’s own SCNDL stays true to their hometown dance music style, transforming “This Girl” into a “Melbourne bounce” smash. Last but not least, Tom Swoon takes the single into the progressive house realm with a festival main stage vibe. With this outstanding release, the Stafford Brothers ride into the tail end of 2014 with strong momentum that will carry them through their tours and next releases to come.
