This Berlin-based duo are keen on bringing Boiler Room style electro to the German dance music scene. Dumme Jungs‘ newest release, “Trap Tech,” is not what we expect to hear from the techno capital, featuring vocals and percussion derived from the American trap scene. Maximally designed bass-hits and minimalistic horn blasts push the envelope of the ‘bohemian’ (see ‘hipster‘ for definition) underground movement. “Trap Tech” is released side by side with a promo video from their last tour, bringing you behind the scenes and into the booth for the most aggressive drop in Berlin this year. Hear what the future holds for the German electro scene below, and grab it for free on Soundcloud.
TORQ’s Thursday night at Ruby Skye has been a staple in San Francisco nightlife for booking up-and-comers, and old school DJs alike. This time, Mau5trap Record’s German star, and tech legend, Moguai, gave a rainy night a touch of class.
Last time we posted a track by Stockholm’s Marcus Prime, Nervo picked it up, tweeting: “AH! Check out this remix of our song IRRESISTIBLE!! Thank you Marcus Prime!! Keep up the amazing work!! There’s so much talent out there!!” Tiesto even gave his support saying: “I like the track, well produced, sounds good!” The rework We’re All No One pushes a great uplifting chord progression into a euphoric bass drop, a side of the track we didn’t know existed until this. If you heard this live, it would absolutely make you want to smile. Prime is back with his new remix of Nervo featuring Afrojack and Steve Aoki’s We’re All No One. Best part is, we’re giving it away here, for free! Grab the download below.

Berlin, Germany brings us through the best techno known to the underground world, from Berghain, to Club Divisionnaire. Don’t let this famous underground techno playground overshadow what the electro scene brings to the table. We introduced you to the Dumme Jungs in June with their remix of “Cyclone“, a dirty electro banger. The Dumme Jungs are back with a remix of Liberty’s “Laser Horse” in a genera they dub ‘Boombaklat’, forthcoming on Oh My God its Techno Music! Do you smell the dubstep in this track?
Here at Dancing Astronaut we aim to set new trends while keeping everyone up to date with the latest Electronic Dance Music. However, with so much innovation within our favorite music genre it is relatively easy for a few ‘anthems’ to slip through the cracks and go unnoticed. Our newest ‘trend’ will allow everyone the chance to go back in time and either remember a track that has not gotten the exposure it deserves or for the song to regain exposure from our fan base through this post. Forgotten Fridays differ from our old trend Throwback Thursdays in that it does not require a timetable for evaluation. A relatively new song can be a Forgotten Friday if we feel that that the requirements written below have been achieved.
In order to qualify for a Forgotten Friday the track must have:
A. Been overshadowed by another remix of the same song.
B. Been completely overlooked and not received the air time it deserves due to ‘bigger’ releases that came out around the same time period.
Marcus Prime, an up and coming DJ from Stockholm, Sweden, throws us a remix of Nervo’s hit Irresistible. His previously released tracks include Hybris, Don’t Love, and a remix for the Rob & Jack duo Smash! On September 12th, he released Avi together with WeSmile. Three words come to mind when listening to the Irresistible remix: Australian, Swedish, Love-child. The happy big room sound, fits perfectly between the two Australian twins’ smooth anthem. Prime captures the feel-good vibe, extending the lyrics with a huge melodic break against a dream-like build up. Nothing we wouldn’t expect from an Avicii hit. It’s happy, it’s catchy, and it’s what you want to hear in “the moment”. We love this track simply because it makes us feel good. That’s what music should do right?

The rhythm of summer pulses from one island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It blows up with international club tourists that dance all night and hang on the beaches all day. This island brings the SoundCloud-inclined rising stars of tomorrow and the old school big names alike. More top 100 clubs reside on this 220 square mile island than in the entire United States.
Of course I’m talking about the one, the only, Eivissa, or as you may know it, Ibiza (though it’s often pronounced with a lisp as in “Ibitha”). This season the halfway point between Barcelona and Algeria has been home to David Guetta’s prudish but legendary F*** Me, I’m Famous party, Eric Morillo’s Subliminal, the Come Together party at Space, Judgement Sundays at Eden, and Amnesia’s famous Cream. Our personal favorite, however, has to be Swedish House Mafia’s reigning event at Pacha, Masquerade Motel.
In this short Ibizan tale — typical of many — I’ll bring you through a 16 hour day in the world capital of dance music. From the morning trip to the fruit market, to the afternoon beach party, into the unforgettable main event of the evening — the Masquerade Motel, get ready to take a ride as you get a small taste of what this little island has to offer.
Sometimes you can judge an event based on the line that forms even before the doors open. First, are there actually people waiting outside? How far down the street does the line stretch? How loud are those people waiting in the queue? Saturday, August 27th at Slagthuset in Malmö, Sweden, we could follow the the parade of loud clubbers for blocks — up the cobblestone streets all the way from the train station straight into to the venue. But the journey to Avicii didn’t start there, for us at least. Read along for a special look at an Avicii set in which we weren’t just spectators, but included in the action behind the scenes.
