  • Madeon Drops New Track

    Madeon – Imperium

    Electronic music wunderkind Madeon recently debuted a new track, but not in the way you would normally think. Titled Imperium, the tune will be featured on EA Sports’ new FIFA 15, set to be released on September 23. “Imperium,” is signature Madeon, featuring an intense break that leads into an epic build-up of euphoric synth play. Madeon is not the only electronic artist to be featured on the famed soccer video game as he joined by all sorts of dance acts like Avicii and A-Trak, who are both debuting new songs, as well as Dirty South, Tensnake, and Rudimental. FIFA is no stranger to featuring electronic acts on their games though, having names like Tiesto, Deadmau5, Moby, and Paul van Dyk all on previous editions.

    With the French prodigy’s album underway, it’s hard not to become excited after hearing a track like this. And while the wait for his debut album continues, “Imperium” might just be enough to hold the time over. Check out the stream below.

  • Tiesto's music video for 'Light Years Away'
    It’s been a big year for the Dutch superstar producer, who continues to find success in anyway possible. Whether it be his newest album A Town Called Paradise or the opportunity to have his music be played at Las Vegas’ popular Fountains of Bellagio, he’s been able to consistently find ways to break his EDM influences in to pop-culture with seamless execution. His next big track is receiving the music video treatment. Light Years Away features the whispery sounds of DBX’s vocals to a pop-influenced EDM blended track. The video features a young lady on a very distant planet who, with the help of her robot, tries to find a sign of organic life.

    Tiesto still has a long tour ahead for his A Town Called Paradise album, and is set to play TomorrowWorld main stage within the next weekend. Take a look at the official video for ‘Light Years Away’ down below!

  • Long Shot

    It’s not everyday that we share a mashup. I say that, even though we just posted Monstercat’s 78 song mega-mash…but really if you take a look at at all the posts on this site, a mashup might come up once or twice a month. There’s just so many out there sometimes it’s tough to sort through; the plus side to this though is when we do share one, it’s pretty freaking special, and boy do we have a killer one for you guys rights now.

    Chicago based producer, Trademark, has a knack for slamming tracks together. Seriously check out his Soundcloud, it’s chock-full of em. His most recent one though, is so clean-cut it almost sounds like an original. He’s mixed together the Cash Cash remix of Katy Perry’s ‘Birthday’ (instrumental mix), Clean Bandit’s anthem ‘Rather Be’ and the Chainsmoker’s latest viral sensation ‘Kanye’ and dubbed this exquisite concoction, ‘Long Shot’.

    ‘Long Shot’ is infectiously addicting. The three tracks go together perfectly, and have been mixed together seamlessly. As far as we know, it’s one of the first to use ‘Kanye’ too, and we’ll be hard-pressed to believe a better of use of it is out there. O’ and to make things even better, it’s a freed download. This particular edit is a standard length, but Trademark has gone above and beyond the norm and provided an extended edit for DJs. Listen to the track below and clickity-clack that download button to snag it for yourself.

  • Before disbanding in the back half of 2013, Swedish House Mafia had quickly risen to one of the biggest names in dance music. Without even having an album in circulation, the fact that the trio could sell out Madison Square Gardens in a matter of minutes is a testament to not only their infamy throughout the scene, but also the sheer talent these three men collectively possessed.

    And while there may have been some tears shed when they reached their parting of the ways, out of the ashes of Swedish House Mafia rose the power-house duo of Axwell /\ Ingrosso. The two emerged as a duo on Zane Lowe’s influential BBC Radio show back in March of 2014, showcasing their smash hit ‘We Come, We Rave, We Love’. The tune received wide support from some of the world’s biggest names, and the groups notoriety quickly sky-rocketed.

  • Kygo Officially Replaces Avicii on TomorrowWorld's Mainstage

    Now literally following in the footsteps of one of his, self proclaimed, biggest inspirations, future house all star Kygo will be officially replacing Avicii on TomorrowWorld’s Main Stage on Friday. The meteoric rise of Kygo’s tropically-inclined future house style has finally come full circle, as the sound will now receive world wide recognition on the mainstage. And rightfully so, as it is a perfect combination of the regulated-to-side-stages-in-America underground house sound and the mainstream. Kygo’s production talent is unquestionable, and for him to get a chance to show that on such a massive stage is a huge step forward in the youngster’s career. The reach will be even more widespread this year, as TomorrowWorld has recently announced their live stream of the event, which you will be able to check out here.  At a quick glance, it looks like Kygo will be sandwiched between Anjunabeats powerhouse Mat Zo and Nervo Twins, giving the crowd a nice change of pace from the generally high-energy sets that will precede and follow.

     

  • Tiesto Bellagio Fountain

    Electronic Music superstar Tiesto recently had the honor of having his latest album, A Town Called Paradise featured on the Fountains of Bellagio show in Las Vegas. This marks the first time ever that an electronic music artist has had their content featured on the Bellagio Hotel’s famed water show. Not only that, but it also marked the first show where the show’s creator collaborated with the music’s actual artist.

    “Dance music has come so far in the past few years in Las Vegas and also around the world,” Tiesto said on his Instagram. “This is a huge statement about the power of the music that we all love.”

    Tiesto is right, being featured on the Fountains of Bellagio truly is a testament to how far he has come. In doing so, he has joined the likes of Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Michael Jackson who have all been previously featured on the show as well. Check out the show below and watch as the fountains dance away to “Footprints,” “Rocky,” and “Red Lights,” in the Vegas night.

  • tyDi – The Closer I Get (Feat. Dashboard Confessional)

    Artists and producers constantly search for the new sound in electronic music. They blend popular music with grizzled bass lines and use massive synth chords to lay the foundation for a rap tune. tyDi is one of these impeccable producers who constantly pushes those envelopes, mingling fundamentals across the spectrum of every genre to create his unique sound that is constantly changing.

    His most recent release is in collaboration with Dashboard Confessional, and it is definitely one to catch you off guard if you are not familiar with tyDi’s impeccable approach he takes to his productions. ‘The Closer I Get’ is a downtempo chill out track, but doesn’t quite sit comfortably within that exact genre. While the bass line and its harmonies are eerily recurrent, Dashboard Confessional’s powerful vocals delight the tune’s midrange and pack enough emotional into the song that it is difficult to label it ‘chill-out’.

    Check out tyDi’s on-point song writing below, and let us know if you can point out all of his influences!
