And just like that the weekend is over, and it’s back to the harsh reality of the normal work week. Thankfully, however, most Mondays are marked by an influx of new music — and today was no different. In between the monster releases from Afrojack, Nicky Romero, and Fedde Le Grand, we also learned of Tomorrowland’s streaming intentions, Axwell’s future plans, and our kicking off a countdown of the best (and worst) moments of 2012 (so far), it’s hard to keep up. If you can believe it, there’s even more stuff we didn’t get to post today — keep reading for the highlights.
DA POSTS YOU CAN’T MISS
1. Tomorrowland is streaming on YouTube. Seven hours a day. For three days. Hell yes.
3. Axwell revealed some of the insights into what he has planned for the future in a refreshingly honest interview. It’s a must-read for anyone at all interested in the Swedish House Mafia story.
4. Our first entrant into DA’s Best of 2012 (so far) is the unforgettable video for Dada Life’s “Rolling Stone T-Shirt.” Once you see it, you can’t forget it. Sorry.
Bonus: The DA editors continue to reveal their picks for the DJ Mag Top 100; today we hear from Dylan Farella.
