The latest addition to the At Night family, Syn Cole‘s two previous remixes were instant hits, proving — yet again — the imprint’s impeccable ear for talent. Rene Pais’s first original release since ditching the Clashback moniker for the progressive house identity of Syn Cole, “April” represents a strong start for the newly re-imagined producer. As an understudy at At Night, there was no doubt that Syn Cole’s first original would be tightly produced and bursting at the seams with punchy melodies, but the freshman effort evokes a level of quality not often seen from an inaugural release. Framed by scintillating melody sections, the track bounces between big room progressive house and aggressive dub heavy electro – all without skipping a beat. The two distinct styles work together to create a cohesive identity for what likely is to be the newcomer’s warning shot of things to come.
Dancing Astronaut, in association with Vanguard nightclub in Los Angeles, is giving away two pairs of VIP Fast Pass tickets to see Avicii perform at the grand-reopening of the legendary nightclub. Sponsored by Insomniac, sbe Nightlife, At Night and Ash Alliance, the Vanguard re-opening is also an extension of Avicii’s long-standing House for Hunger tour – which has raised over $1 million since its inception. Recently hitting 3 million Facebook fans, the name Avicii has become synonymous with poignant progressive house, including an impressive catalog of tracks that have nearly single-handedly defined the “EDM explosion.”

Cazzette is finally unveiling the official video for their chart-topping “Beam Me Up,” only one week ahead of next week’s debut album release. The video parallels public sighting of a UFO with uncontrollable, widespread dance. The UFO appears to be the same iconic cassette tape figure that Alex and Seb often mask themselves with on stage, and after being spotted, the video breaks into live festival footage.
The quirkiness of the video is what we are used to from the Swedish duo, so expect it to come in full force when Eject is released on November 13th.Posted by
In anticipation for their upcoming album release, Cazzette have decided to give away their grinding dubstep rendition of Kanye and Jay Z’s “N*ggas In Paris” for free. Morphing Kanye and Jay Z’s overplayed original into a smashing, high-energy bass fest, these two prolific producers have managed to breathe new life into the hollowed out corpse of last summer’s most well-known Top 40 track.
It’s a fact that everyone loves free just as much as they love Fridays so grab this one now and add it to your already overflowing iTunes library.
The Swedish duo Cazzette has been spending its entire existence — all of 9 months — coining and defining the genre “dub house.” Even in that short period of time they have been able to produce heavy yet upbeat remixes and originals. In conjunction with hitting 20,000 fans on Facebook, Cazzette released a new preview for “Hit Da Face,” which uses electro synths to build before dropping with a heavy, funky bass line that could even satisfy bass-haters. After creating a name by remixing Avicii songs and traveling with him on tour, it’s nice to see Alex and Sebastian starting to separate themselves. No word yet on the release date.

With the recent North American tour announcement Cazzette has been keeping busy and releasing bootlegs is the easiest way to keep fans happy while touring. Their newest track is a mashup between their unreleased song “Make Some Room” and “Technologic” by Daft Punk. The two tracks combine to bring you familiar lyrics with hard electro sounds and an addition of a progressive melody on top. Cazzette produces music that really sets them apart. Hopefully they take a break from touring soon and spend some time in the studio, because the thought of Cazzette and Avicii producing a track together makes us shudder. No release date or label has been announced.

One month, 22 cities, and one million dollars later, At Night recaps Avicii’s ‘House for Hunger Tour’ (update: College Tour footage)
Over the course of one month, Avicii and the At Night family toured the continental United States (and Puerto Rico) on their “House for Hunger” tour to raise money and awareness for the ever-increasing hunger epidemic plaguing the United States. In addition to bringing his music to tons of cities across the US, Avicii and his team brought much-needed awareness to a problem that most of us never really think about.
Watch the recap as it follows Avicii and Cazzette as they travel from city to city, bringing the energy and passion that only house music can evoke. (See update) It’s always good to shed some light on the positive side of EDM.
Update: The footage above comes from Avicii’s 2011 College Tour, not his House for Hunger one. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused — though it doesn’t make the video any less awesome.Posted by
