Nicky Romero anxiety keeps him from releasing new tracks

21.11.2015


If you have been wondering why Nicky Romero has not been so present on the music scene in recent times we may have the answer for you. The Dutch artist confessed his anxiety problem in a recent Facebook post.
"In the last few months I have had many questions why I didn't release as much music as before. […] I have been suffering anxiety for about 2.5 years now. I probably visited more than 12 therapists and professionals to help me fix it. It was only getting worse. […]
Having anxiety makes it really hard to produce music, as it sucks all of the energy out of you and leaves you with a huge feeling of unreality and unease. I felt guilty to all of my fans and more pressure was added by all expectations."

It seems that his anxiety problem keeps him from releasing new tracks. However, in the letter he also hints to the forthcoming release of the track he has been working on with Hungarian duo Stadiumx as well as his thankfulness and support to his fans.

We just want you to know that we support you as well, Nicky!

Swedish House of Mafia may have a reunion

08.03.2016


Swedish House of Mafia may have a reunion. Last night Axwell in Beats 1 radio got our hopes up, hinting that Swedish House Mafia may have a reunion to delight us with new hits.

The beloved trio, which include Ingrosso, Steve Angello and Axwell himself, may have not be gone for good as Axwell dropped this bomb during the show, suggesting that they do not exclude future collaborations
"We think about it every now and then, you know what we left, what we did, what we accomplished and everything, and how it would be to do something together again. But I think, the only thing is that time will tell pretty much […]. Who knows what happens in the future, we might get a sudden urge for Swedish House Mafia again…who knows!"

We surely know what to ask Santa for this Christmas!

Get ready for Steve Aoki's new hits

16.10.2015


If you love Steve Aoki music you are going to be pleasantly surprised. The American DJ has announced his intention to release four new house tracks, moving away from his usual EDM/electro/pop style.



After an electrifying experience in Ibiza, the Grammy-nominated DJ and producer has decided to experiment new tones and genres with his music, giving himself completely to a new kind of free energy.

The longer flow of house music will surely be a wonderful change. I am sure that Steve is not going to disappoint us with his new hits.

Hasta la vista, Universal! Deadmau5 goes Indie

09.10.2015


The 34 yeard old Canedian artist, who not long ago raged against major-label industry, has now decided to ditch Universal and go indie, following the example of many others co-workers.



Dreadmau5 is on fire. The electronic mouse has declared his independence after being exploited, as claimed by him, by the big sharks in the music industry. Deadmau5 goes Indie, leaving Universal and Capitol/Astralwerks mostly for their lack of transparency.

"I am very strict on what products I want to associate myself with, and I felt that some things were just to make a buck, then, we’d only get a little trickle, and I’d be like, ‘Wait, I look this stupid for only that much? Why am I looking stupid in the first place?" That's how Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5, explains his decision to his fans.

When one door closes another one opens. And here the ­independent publishing and music-rights platform Kobalt shines as an attractive and free world, a promise for an independent future.  We wish you good luck, masked mouse!

APHROHEAD'S ALIVE AND WITH A NEW VIDEO

06.10.2015


Felix Da Housecat brings back his old alias with his new video for "Resurrection".



It was back in 2005 when Felix Stallings last dropped a piece as Aphrohead, and Resurrection seems to hint at his surprising return.

The DJ from Chicago has described Aphrohead "as is my dirty of the dirty, mixing live analogue beats capturing the magic recording on the first take, rockin for walls of thee most primitive dancefloors around the globe. Pure underground, no filter. I feel and believe thee time is NOW for the Resurrection.”

The video has a dark-gloomy atmosphere, softened by a hopeful and spiritual tone. Here is the video for you to enjoy.

02.10.2015


Zomby has two new EPs dropping on XL next week.



The enigmatic producer has teased the releases by unveiling 'Acid Surf' on Soundcloud.

It's a squelching, woozy trip that layers acidic flickering over a reverb soaked foundation. In typical fleeting style the track clocks in under four minutes and features Zomby's trademark airhorn.

The Through The Night EP is released on October 2 via Lektroluv

25.09.2015


There are plenty of disguises and costumes in dance music but Dr Lektroluv's might be one of the boldest. The all-green selector uses a telephone to mix his outrageously big electro tunes and he's been doing it for a long time now.



His label Lektroluv is responsible for releases by Mumbai Science, The Subs and Jagerverb, all of whom bring the heavy artillery fire in their productions. Next up on the imprint however is the boss man himself and he isn't taking any prisoners this time.

The 'Through The Night' EP is loaded with two original tracks that are as bright and colourful as the DJ's face mask and both of them hark back to the golden 2006 era of electro.

OWSLA protege Etnik has crafted the remix of the title track and it kicks even harder than the original. The glitchy and restless cut is as sharp as barb wire and features slamming drops and feverish cymbals. You'll dig this.

Brainfeeder debut is almost 'SOLD OUT'

24.09.2015




DJ Paypal is making his Brainfeeder debut with a mini-album on the label.




'Sold Out' has got a footwork-heavy guest list, including DJ Earl, DJ Taye, Feloneezy and Jackie Dagger, and sees the anonymous producer in jazzy, and pretty bonkers form.

Other collaborators on the eight-tracker, out on November 13, are Berlin-based producer Nangdo, Keiska and Tielsie.

Have a listen to 'Awakenings' below to get an idea of what it's all about.

SG1.2 for ridiculous $30,000

23.09.2015


They say money can't buy happiness, but the purchase of this new Spiral Groove turntable might prove that theory wrong for audio lovers.



Costing a ridiculous $30,000, the SG1.2 arrives eight years after the original and comes armed with much better sound quality (notably music played at high volumes), while being less prone to those irritating vibrations vinyl users know all about.

It's a little heavier than the SG1.1 (20 pounds more to be exact), obviously helping out in terms of the aforementioned vibration reduction, and allows you to change the bayonet-mounted tone arm (of which you get a few with a "unique stylus") with extra ease.

And for those who already own the first turntable in the series, you can be upgraded to the SG1.2 for $6,000. Those who haven't, well, you best get saving.
