As you may or may not already know, Swedish House Mafia is breaking up soon. After working together since 2005, making something of the best music out there, Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso have decided to call it quits on their own terms. This will be the last ever released song from Swedish House Mafia, and they’ve released an epic video to go along with it. Shot at their final show ever in Europe, They compile footage of a gigantic crowd, the three gents, and the vocals of John Martin to create what is definitely the proper farewell for the group. Watch, enjoy, and say farewell to one of the greatest Dance music groups ever…for now.
This was one of the biggest festivals in the US this year, and we’ve got the photos to prove it! Over Labor Day weekend, Made Event presented Electric Zoo 2012, and once again transformed New York City’s Randall’s Island into a multiplex of music, lights and dancing, along with 100+ of the world’s best and brightest electronic music artists. The 3-day bonanza hosted 110,000 avid fans with sold-out capacity crowds on Saturday & Sunday.
Bigger than ever in its fourth year, Electric Zoo’s technological advances helped transform the festival landscape. Intellitix’s RFID technology was again embedded in wristbands to help festival-goers enter quickly through the front gates. The stadium-scale Main Stage featured high-resolution motion-controlled video panels that created a massive sense of scale, which could be reconfigured live to create unique looks for each individual artist. The Riverside Stage included custom-designed 3D LED technology used for the first time ever at a live electronic music show. Meanwhile, the Hilltop Arena saw a wall of LED panels and mirrors set at specific angles, working in tandem to bathe the tent in a sea of lights and lasers. And over at the Sunday School Grove, original custom-designed school buses integrated LEDs with 3D projection mapping to create an immersive mixed-media experience. In every tent, club-quality sound systems enveloped fans with impeccable sound engineered by Integral Sound.

Carl Cox is a legend. He’s been a leader and trendsetter in electronic music for decades, and this is just another testament to his musical genius! The Scumfrog remixed the original song “If I Ever Love My Faith” by Sting, which was then remixed by Mr. Cox himself. The single releases officially on September 24th, but you can check it out now on Beatport. Listen first below!
Bootlegger Ken Loi drops a new edit of two songs that were huge hits in the EDM genre this year. Afrojack’s “Rocking the House” and Skrilex & The Doors’ “Breaking a Sweat(Zedd Remix)” get mashed up on this new edit. Pretty sick mix if you ask me. You can listen to the track below and at Ken Loi’s Soundcloud page.
Calvin Harris always delivers, and this track is no different. This track will be featured on his new album, Third coming album, which is set to release in September of this year. Listen to the track below!
“For proof the EDM craze has truly become an American household phenomenon, even our oldest sartorial institution – denim – will be getting a dance-ready makeover when Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply and Swedish mega DJ/producer Avicii kick off their Fall 2012 collaboration. Rolling Stone has learned that Tim Bergling (Avicii) will be featured in the brand’s new advertising campaign, the video element of which he will be co-producing and debuting on DenimAndSupply.com late this summer. Set to be filmed in New York City this week, the clip will debut the premiere of a brand new track and feature some of the DJ’s biggest fans for good measure.”_ Source
