As April is quickly approaching, Armin Van Buuren is getting ready to kick of his Armin Only: Intense tour in North America. The North American leg kicks of April 11th at Madison Square Garden in New York City and will hit major cities such as Chicago, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and more. This tour is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before, utilizing a 76 ft long DJ booth, acrobats, dancers, live singers and musicians, all set to amazing visuals, pyrotechnics and much, much more. The show is a five plus hour long trip through some of the most popular dance music that exists today. The 5 time #1 DJ in the world said, “Unlike today, now that it’s all based on short sets and quick highlights, it used to be all about the long sets, the musical trips. That’s what Armin Only is based on – to take the clubbers on a [five]-plus hour journey into music. Through the Armin Only: Intense shows, I can tell them the full story of my Intense album – in fact of everything I’d like to say.” I’m super excited as a fan of all things dance music, I’m nearly bursting with anticipation.
Tickets are selling extremely quickly if they haven’t already been sold out, but you still can get yours at Arminony.com.
The Miami Music Week schedule just continues to get hotter and hotter, and that torrid pace does not appear to be close to slowing down. Of course, the world-famous Ultra Music Festival will be rocking day and night in the same city, but there are clubs hosting crazy parties just about every night during the week. After the announcements from Revealed Recordings and Mixmash Records, Belgian big-room titans Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and American icon Steve Aoki have announced they will be taking over The Pop-Up Arena @ Ice Palace Studios with the help of Autoerotique, Wolfpack, Deorro, and Yves V from 22:00 to 5:00 on Friday, March 28. These DJ’s are known for their infectious energy on stage, and there is bound to be a surplus during this event. Plus, the show will be full of “special effects, exclusive edits and original material,” so the show will definitely will be on another level.
If you haven’t been living under rock for the past year or so then you’re probably familiar with the name Disclosure. The UK duo rose quite quickly to fame and their album Settle was one of the best of 2013 and I’m talking about all genres of music here. DallasK, another young star in the making, has released an absolutely phenomenal bootleg of their tune “Help Me Lose My Mind” that takes their garage funk sound and turns it into a progressive house banger. I really love how he used to vocal to add some emotion into the song and it’s got a powerful, fresh sound that I would associate with someone like Dannic or Dyro. Really impressive work here and even better, the bootleg is free to download.
Mainstage Music is celebrating 100,000 likes on Facebook by giving away “Ghost Town” produced by none other than label bosses W&W. This song is a little different from their most recent release, “Bigfoot.” They get back to their trance roots and to my surprise added some snare rolls characteristic in trap. The two electro drops drops have a very gritty sound to them while the trance one isn’t as dark. The whole song has a somewhat dark feel to it, hence the name “Ghost Town.”
Take a listen and get yourself a copy of W&W‘s free release below. Enjoy!
Fans have been waiting quite a while to hear the collaboration known as “Tell Me” from RL Grime and What So Not and the artists did not disappoint. In fact because it’s a free download I would go so far as to say they beat expectations with this one. It’s interesting to see how What So Not influenced the track, there’s definitely a lot of elements from “Jaguar” and “Touched In There”, but RL adds his own unique twist and I feel like there are quite a few of his own unique touches in this one as well. Overall “Tell Me” is one of the best new tracks to have been released this month and honestly it was my favorite ID every since I saw the numerous videos of RL Grime dropping it at shows. All you have to do to get your copy is enter an email address and then download away.
Tropkillaz and Meaux Green are no strangers to the trap scene and this time they’ve teamed up to deliver a hard hitting track called “Pump Up The Volume”. The booty shaking bass that the artists are so well known for is present here and the quick hitting lyrics literally beg you to pump up the volume. Striking a perfect balance between a slow grinder and a faster paced pump up jam “Pump Up The Volume” features the best of Tropkillax and Meaux Green. Already worthy of a download, the fact that it’s free is even better. Happy Friday trap fiends!
This might just be the biggest track signed to Mainstage Music in its tenure. The sublabel ran by W&W has brought in some huge names recently (like Markus Schulz) and they continue to build an impressive roster of artists now that they have signed #2 DJ in the world Armin van Buuren and fellow trance producer Andrew Rayel for their new smash hit “Eiforya”. With just 10 days left until the release, the hype building around “Eiforya” is palpable. The release date will be March 17.
The teaser for “Eiforya” is quite short, and leaves you craving more. They gave us only a melody, and so the rest is left up to our imagination. What they gave us is quite fantastic, with intricate sounds blending perfectly throughout the tantalizing 50 second sample. Mainstage Music described the track as a “bigroom [sic] meets trance smash,” so we will see what the drop has in store for us in the coming days.
This big collaboration between Armin van Buuren and Andrew Rayel will drop on March 17. Until then, enjoy this preview!
No one has control over their genre quite like Tchami has over the recovering deep house genre. Singlehandedly bringing the groovy sound back to relevance, Tchami has been able to strike gold with remixes for MERCER‘s “Turn It Up” and Martin Garrix & Jay Hardway‘s “Wizard”. He now makes his solo debut on Spinnin’ Records with “Untrue,” a deep house tune that will be released on April 4.
Like most tracks from Tchami, “Untrue” is full of fantastic chill vibes that we don’t hear too much in all the big-room noisemakers that dominate the Beatport top charts. The bassline is funky and dynamic, but doesn’t try to blow you out of the room. Plus, the slow, flowing vocals create a fantastic top line for the track.
“Untrue,” the newest from Tchami will be released on April 4. Until then, enjoy the preview!
Notorious B.I.G. ft. Bone Thugs N Harmony – Notorious Thugs (FelMax & Andres Fresko Remix) [Free Download]
Sometimes there’s just so much music being released that some seriously good tracks get overlooked. This is one of them. This trap remix of the wildly popular rap song “Notorious Thugs” by Biggie Smalls and Bone Thugs is insanely polished and smooth with a razor sharp synth section that will make the hairs on your arm stand up. FelMax and Andres Fresko truly outdid themselves with this and I have no idea how it’s only received support from Kennedy Jones and Lookas so far, RL Grime and Flosstradamus should be dropping this. Honestly when I first heard it I thought it was an Ookay song, it’s that good. Grab a free download and share with your friends, this is one of the best trap remixes of the month.
The former metal/punk drummer and current dubstep producer signed to OWSLA is about to embark on his “Worlds Apart” tour. The first phase of the tour shows only dates in North America, but I’m sure there Seven Lions will visit other countries throughout the duration of the tour. Presale tickets are available now, so make sure you get your tickets here before they are sold out.
Take a listen to his song “Strangers” with Myon and Shane 54 below. Enjoy!
