We’re a bit late on posting this one as it came out a couple weeks back, but there is really no timeline on great music. Disclosure dropped this gem right before Halloween, and it is a massive track. This lush house track features some awesome synthesizer work along with some groovy vocal stabs to fill in the air for another hit from the UK brothers. You can listen to the track in its entirety below, and follow Disclosure on their Soundcloud page.

Nicky Romero and Calvin Harris team up for this new banger! The song leaked last month, but was just officially released on Beatport a little bit ago. The elctro anthem features two of the biggest names in the game right now, and is a great track. Take a listen below!
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 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.
“Not even the home of Silicon Valley legend Steve Jobs has escaped a Bay Area-wide upswing in residential burglaries. But unlike a majority of those crimes, a suspect is in custody.”
“The deceased Apple co-founder’s home on Waverley Street in Palo Alto was burglarized July 17, said Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery, a member of the high-technology crimes unit.”
“More than $60,000 worth of “computers and personal items” were allegedly stolen, but Flattery declined to say whether they belonged to Jobs, who died last year at the age of 56, or another family member.”
We’re sure you all know Notorious B.I.G.’s song “Juicy” word for word, but did you know that the exact home where he shot the video for the track is now for sale? That’s right the Hampton home where they shot the video is going for $10.975 million, quite the number there. Prudential real estate said,“There is no other house in all of the Hamptons with these views. That and the design make this one of the most unique buys in the area.” Click HERE for more information.
