Tiesto tweeted this teaser of his upcoming release “Maximal Crazy” yesterday. The video shows Tiesto dropping the track in front of the thousands of people at this years’ EDC in Vegas. This one has a pretty hard, electronic sound that we cannot wait to see played at his College Invasion Tour. Watch out for this one September 5th on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label.
The long awaited remixes of Skylar Grey’s “Invisible” have now fallen upon us. We have an array of big name artists in this package with each track offering something different yet appetizing. The breakdown of each remix can be found below, grab all of them on iTunes today!
Dirty South has already had one of the biggest remixes of the year alongside Skylar Grey. Does his rendition actually outdo that of “Coming Home”? The standards are lofty with this sensitive progressive tune, the sweeping sounds from Dirty South really accentuate Skylar’s fabulous vocals. While “Coming Home” was more of a club oriented remix you can relax and n-joy this “Invisible” remix.

12th Planet has been instrumental in dubstep’s rise to prominence here in the United States, and his earth-shattering set in the Sahara tent at Coachella 2011 impressed the hell out of us here at Dancing Astronaut. When we heard that he would be playing at the Music Box in Hollywood, we couldn’t help but send a reporter out to review the show. What followed was an absolutely awesome performance in which 12th Planet effortlessly wove dubstep classics with brand new material. Read past the break for the full lowdown — as well as some exclusive previews of the tracks he debuted. (more…)
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you see Deniz Koyu and Johan Wedel combine forces to remix something? The folks at Dancing Astronaut think: holy shit, time to get this party started! This distortion heavy progressive track, features the elegant bassline that is usually featured in his tracks and the powerful craziness that is a staple of Johan Wedel productions (think: “In The Dark” remix and his re-touch of Kid Cudi’s “Whenever Cudder Is Back“). Will this sound good at a festival? Answer: Hell yes.
Yes, you have heard a million versions of this song during EDM events. Hell, even Avicii has dropped various bootlegs of this in previous sets (you can see why due to its unbelievable feel good sound). “So Much Love” is an upbeat house track that was released in 2005 by the Freeloaders. Fedde uses the technology of 2011 and his expertise to create a tech house version that is sure to be a hit not only within Fedde’s circle, but many big name DJ’s. It is slightly ‘darker’ than the original – fast forward to about 4:27 and feel the ‘love’ flowing in.
We got to sit down with Diplo in San Francisco before one of his shows earlier in the month, and picked his brain on the music scene and life in general. The blonde half of Major Lazer talks about everything from the types of music he likes to mix to the places he visits in San Francisco. We don’t want to give everything away, but he also talks about his musical influences and his protegé of the moment, Dillon Francis. We won’t waste your time any longer with meaningless words on a screen when you can click the play button above and hear it straight from the DJ’s mouth. So click it. You know you want to.
Tiesto’s Club Life College Invasion tour is set to touch down in Syracuse on September 18th, but the just-announced closing date is even more notable. On October 8th, the world’s greatest DJ will play a show for 26,000 EDM fanatics at Los Angeles’ Home Depot Stadium (home base of the LA Galaxy). That also happens to make it the largest single-headliner show ever in North America. Don’t forget that the DJ also still has two great contests going on for aspiring producers and crazed fans, so be sure to read the original tour post for more info. This show is sure to be one for the ages, so if you’re in LA — or anywhere Tiesto’s scheduled to be — you might want to grab tickets now. All the dates — and the tour teaser video — are embedded after the break.
Back in 2005, Tommy Lee and Aero met a pre-mau5head era Joel Zimmerman through mutual friend and Nine Inch Nails producer, Steve Duda. The four recorded a short EP entitled “WTF?” that was widely overlooked. 5 years later, after the incredible commercial success of deadmau5, they are reunited on the Meowington Hax tour to support their new electro house endeavors. The new signees will be rolling with the mau5 starting with four shows at the Hollywood Palladium (three of which are sold out) in Los Angeles, as well as many more throughout the fall. They’ll also appear at Electric Zoo at Randall’s Island in New York City on September 3, and the Labor of Love Festival at The Guvernment in Toronto on September 4.
We were always skeptical about Tommy Lee’s foray into electronic music, something just didn’t feel right. Maybe it was our inherent jealousy of the Mötley Crüe drummer — did he really have to bump uglies with Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra and Heather Locklear? That’s just selfish. Much like when rappers try to become actors, we assumed it was a substance-less cash in, a desperate attempt at staying relevant. And boy were we wrong.
“Static” represents dirty electro house at its finest. It probably gives Tommy Lee’s past sexual experiences a run for their money — the kind of track that makes you feel like you need a shower.
After getting the dirt off don’t forget to grab your tickets for Electric Zoo here.
John Dahlback combines forces with vocalist Andy P to create an uplifting progressive song called “You’re In My Heart”. You may remember this duo from previous tunes such as “Love Inside” and “Turn Down The Lights”. This track has a slightly more sensitive feel when compared to his previous works, but it is still a solid production.

Fresh off their remix of Dim Chris’ “You Found Me”, Promise Land creates a harder pulsing version of John Dahlback’s track. The sweeping bassline and heavy bassline make this our personal favorite from this package. The Italian duo is on straight fire!

We’ve seen (and interviewed) the Manufactured Superstars perform many times before, but after watching them at Identity Festival in Wantagh this Saturday, we can confirm that they are still entertaining as hell. Dressed in their astronaut suits — which we swear we have nothing to do with — they took to the Advent stage in the time slot right before the storm clouds opened up. Their equipment survived the rain that began to set in towards the end, but our cellphones survived, leaving us able to give you a recap of one of the day’s better sets.
