Following the chart-topping Dance (RED) Save Lives Compilation album, the cancer-fighting (RED) organization has once again put together an astounding lineup of features and tracks for the second part of their compilation series. As standouts from the track list, Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, and Deadmau5 will all own spots on the charitable project, and the yet unheard “Infinite Daps” from Baauer and RL Grime also makes an appearance to heighten expectations and increase the pain of anticipation even further. Dance (RED) Save Lives 2 is already available for preorder, and is expected to debut November 25th.
While the well-known festival circuit keeps electronic fans in Europe and North America busy during the summer months, it isn’t until winter that Australia sees its biggest celebrations of music, and Stereosonic Festival is amongst the few favorites in the land down under. This year, Thump, a Vice Network channel, has allied with (RED) to stream Stereosonic as a celebration of World AIDS Day on November 30th. Although specifics of who exactly will be streamed are so far unconfirmed, event headliners include dance music greats Armin Van Buuren, David Guetta, and Sebastian Ingrosso on top of many more.
New Year’s Eve is the next the holiday on everyone’s radar and people are wondering where to celebrate the first moments of 2014.

Britney Spears revealed the title of her upcoming single yesterday with a cryptic Instagram, but inadvertently opened up another can of worms with the credited songwriters. Among the co-writers of “Work Bitch” listed at the top of the lyrics page were William Adams (will.i.am), Otto Jettman (Otto Knows), and Sebastian Ingrosso. Later that day Ingrosso told Billboard that he didn’t know why he was listed and couldn’t take credit for the song’s production.
Instead he explained that will.i.am (who he refers to as a good friend) asked him for a beat to write on for the new Britney Spears single. Of the music offered, will.i.am chose a production from Otto Knows, one of the artists managed by Seb. While “Work Bitch” won’t be the latest Ingrosso production, the Tuesday release will be yet another episode where will.i.am snatches dance tunes.
On will.i.am: See what Sebastian Ingrosso had to say below.

Sebastian Ingrosso has not been shy in his post-Swedish House Mafia antics. Already racking crossover anthem “Reload” and his Departures residency alongside Axwell at Ushuaia Ibiza, the Swedish icon announces a rare solo headline show at London’s Brixton Academy on December 14th. The landmark show comes four years down the line from Swedish House Mafia’s standard setting headline show at the same venue –- one which epitomized the trio’s ability to take electronic music to new and unchartered live territories. While no additional line-up information has been unveiled, the night promises to be a pre-Christmas spectacle from a man whose career continues to benefit from breaching new territory at every possible turn. Tickets go on general sale July 19 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster or Gigs & Tours. (more…)

After racing through a frozen wasteland and battling mythical beasts in the official music video for the vocal version of “Reload,” the live version follows Sebastian Ingrosso during his performance at Highline Ballroom for the Miller Music Tour. With only 700 fans in attendance that evening in New York, the video serves as a friendly refresher for those who were lucky enough to be in attendance – and makes the rest of us wish we were there.
