Battle of the Beats is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that pits two tracks that share the same title against one another to determine which production represents the name better. With the dance music community continually growing, producers, mashup artists and DJs alike constantly create new music, often of the same name. Now we are opening it up to our readers to weigh in on whose rendition takes the proverbial cake.
In our first installment of Before the Beats we showed off shots from artists including Brodinski, Dillon Francis, and Sebastian Ingrosso. For the second edition, we’ve collected even more photos which run the gamut from cute and cuddly to funny and predictive of their musical futures. New additions to the baby photo retrospective include Ferry Corsten, Hardwell, Laidback Luke, and Sander van Doorn, but we also have new pictures from artists previously featured in our first installment; repeat offenders include Steve Angello, Chuckie, and A-Trak.

His latest record, a remix for OneRepublic’s “If I Lose Myself,” has dominated April and will continue to own the summer. It all started weeks before its release, at Ultra Music Festival’s main stage, where Alesso gave Miami the final set before Swedish House Mafia closed their curtains. Providing the appropriate visuals, Alesso recaps his Miami Music Week for the music video. Filmed and edited by usual videographer for the Swedes, Henrik Hanson, the video portrays the maturity of the young star during a pivotal week in his career.Posted by

In another u-turn for dance music and its reign over popular American culture, Patriots Point has banned all EDM shows after excessive noise complaints were received during Harbor City Fest on Thursday. At a time when the genre has continued to make loud noise across the nation, Alesso’s headline efforts to a 3,100 strong-crowd were evidently too much for the South Carolina naval base, leading to the decision by the venues executive director Mac Burdette to ban all similar events from the venue.
An official statement from Brudette explained: “We received numerous complaints about the noise level of the music. While we are always willing to consider new and unique events as a museum and tourist attraction, we are always committed to doing the right thing.”
No official statement has been released on behalf of the festival’s promoter, Brightsound, though a mixed wave of reports from residents allegedly unaffected by the event has called to question the legitimacy of the decision. Brudette went on to say that quieter music events would still be allowed to take place at the venue.
