“We need to stop to breathe it in a little bit, ‘cuz everything went so fast… so big.” said Sebastian Ingrosso, hours before Swedish House Mafia would play their final UK show at Milton Keynes Bowl. The venue packed with 60,000 fans has been the Swedes’ biggest show since selling out Madison Square Garden, and like their NYC affair, they have brought a brand new track. In December, it was “Greyhound,” tonight, it was the highly anticipated “Don’t You Worry Child.” Months back, the trio spoke to MTV of a new single that would make grown men cry, and after missing its proposed Coachella-debut, has finally been premiered across the pond. Take a listen to the live rip and let us know what you think of Swedish House Mafia’s latest — and apparently final – single.
DJ Chuckie is always giving away free tracks, and he’s back again with UK artists MRK1 and Doctor. “Mek Money” almost sounds like a rap track, but the beat behind it gives it an interesting electronic feel. The drum and bass influence from MRK1 combined with Chuckie’s signature dirty dutch and Doctor’s lyrics make for a fun upbeat track that should fit nicely into certain sets. Check out the track below and download it as well — after all, you can’t beat free.
Just when we thought he gave us everything he had the legendary Eric Prydz has released another preview under his Pryda moniker. As usual Pryda does an amazing job at layering so many different melodies on top of one another, which sound exquisite with John Ciafone vocals. Touring the USA was an amazing surprise from Prydz, and now his never ending line of previews and releases confirms why Eric Prydz is truly a master at his craft.
Update: ”Every Day” will be released October 15th, along with a remix from Fehrplay.
It has been barely two weeks since R3hab released his latest remix which means it is most certainly time for a new one. This time the master of chainsaws takes on the queen of pop, Madonna, taking “Turn Up the Radio” and making it into progressive house fire. R3hab left the chainsaw at home for this one, creating a remix that maintains the pop sounds of the orignal with an added bassline. It’s refreshing to see him taking another new approach — we’ve always been fans of his “Fire” remix too. No word on a release date yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
Sebastian Ingrosso has gone on record in an interview with BBC Radio 1′s Vernon Kay, discussing the rise of Swedish House Mafia and revealing some secrets about the trio. For starters, he says that the group will finally debut its newest track, reportedly titled “Don’t You Worry Child,” tonight at Milton Keynes Bowl in the UK. (You may remember that it was nearly completed around Coachella, but never came to fruition then.) He says that he’s actually working on it at the time of the interview, and that the guys will ride that out before starting to release more solo stuff.
When asked about their meteoric rise, he says that “it went big,” before adding that “we need to stop to breathe it in a little bit, ‘cuz everything went so fast… so big.” When asked about the highlights of their run, he mentions tonight’s Milton Keynes Bowl, Madison Square Garden, and the upcoming Friends Arena shows in Sweden. “I think looking back at it, every single show is a highlight.” He says it’s an “incredible feeling” to “make someone smile with something that you’ve created.”

For those of you who were excited to get splattered this weekend in Brooklyn, we have some unfortunate news. According to a statement on Dayglow’s official website, the event has been postponed due to a last minute reversal of their sound permit. This isn’t the first time the event has run into trouble in New York City. If you recall, almost two years it was shut down by the NYPD mid-party and post paint drop because the venue was over capacity. This time, however, the postponement seems to have been out of their hands.
Dayglow is offering refunds to interested parties. These refunds can be redeemed by contacting TicketFly but we suggest waiting to see if you can make the alternate date — they will be honoring already purchased tickets. We’ll keep you updated with the new date and other information as it comes in. Read on for the full statement. (more…)
It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard a solid remix from the brilliant Laidback Luke. Carrying the success from his “buy generic levitra online
ke-ft-wynter-gordon-speak-up-original-mix/”>Speak Up” single featuring Wynter Gordon, Laidback Luke transformed Aoki’s “Emergency” from a bearable track to an enjoyable one. With sirens going off in the background Laidback creates a heavy drop with lots of dirty twists, which is what we’ve been waiting to hear from Luke for quite some time now. No questions asked Laidback Luke is one of the most dynamic and entertaining artists the dance music world has ever seen, and we have always appreciated his immense creativity.
Artistic Raw has collaborated with lesser-known Dutch compatriot Basti Lourenz to release a dance-floor destroying track called “Wolfpack.” The track features some electro chord play that progressively takes on a big room sound, only to drop right back into the thumping bassline. Released yesterday on Drughouse Records, “Wolfpack” has the capacity to please both progressive and electro lovers alike. Give it a listen and head over to Beatport to pick up your copy.
