Thanksgiving 2013 may be officially over, but artists from all over the world spent all of yesterday tweeting what they were thankful for this year. Yes, even those who aren’t American and don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in their home countries, such as Chuckie, Dada Life, and Cedric Gervais. Below is a collection of Thanksgiving-themed tweets for an extra dose of turkey-induced candidness.
Today is Thanksgiving. It’s a time to give thanks for good health, good friends, good family, and, of course, good music. We thought we’d take the time to pay tribute to our favorite parts of dance music culture on this day of thanks, not only for the guys who slave over turntables while we get to party, but for the dance music scene in general and its constantly expanding fanbase. This one’s for the electronic acts that put their heart and soul into it, the clubs that go all out every night of the week, and the people who live and breathe dance music. It’s the least we can do.
Borgore, a man unapologetic for his over-the-top antics, will take over the party at Mansion this weekend. Guaranteed to be full of raunchy beats and raunchier debauchery, this event is made for the South Beach climate and Mansion’s spacious floors. As the rightful proponent of ‘Booty Monsta,’ this party promises to be a wild night. Dancing Astronaut is proud to take you front and center to the event, with a chance to win a table to celebrate the night away for you and three friends.

Everyone’s favorite in-your-face cake connoisseur, Borgore, is back at it with the official release of his genre-crossing Wild Out EP. With help from vocalist Paige, southern rap star Waka Flocka Flame, and Philadelphia based producer Victor Niglio, the EP is a party fueling collection of electro house and big room tunes that perfectly blend the styles of each individual artist. Wild Out showcases the playfully mischievous Israeli producer’s hardcore electronic roots, while also representing significant growth for the artist. Borgore moves away from the grimy, grumbling sounds of the dubstep he is known to produce, using this sound-bending studio effort as a testament to his versatility as a producer and performer.
Known for his deliciously inappropriate behavior, Borgore is at it again with his latest release, “Booty Monsta,” alongside Philadephia’s Victor Niglio. Having previously been a part of an Israeli death metal band, Borgore seems to rely heavily on metal for his latest work. The track’s eerie opening is accompanied by computerized vocals: “Who’s scared of the…[booty monsta].” In terms of its composition, “Booty Monsta” has a darker feel to it than the Israeli’s more dubstep-influenced productions such as “Decisions,” or rap-influenced tracks like “Wild Out.” On the whole, Asaf and Niglio combine for a grittier approach, evident in the thunderous bass kicks and metallic, electro synths.Posted by
2013′s two weeks of Halloween festivities have officially come to a close, and for New York City the spooky celebrations ended with a bang at Pier 94. With the help of the creators of Pacha NYC, RPM Events, one of Manhattan’s greatest concert venues morphed into an eerie electronic music powerhouse right along the Hudson River for Steve Aoki‘s Aokify America tour. Aside from the Dim Mak label head himself, the NYC stop featured Rune RK, Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame and special guest Pharrell Williams for two back-to-back nights of celebration and big room beats.
The Aokify crew performed Friday night at Hammerstein Ballroom, but Saturday’s show had double the space, which meant double the noise, cake, champagne and chaos. Kicking things off at 9 pm, Denmark’s own Rune RK opened the show. During the set Rune and Aoki dropped their brand new collab, “Bring You To Life (Transcend),” which set the tone for a night of insanity. The crowd drove towards the stage in masses, some decked out in head-to-toe body suits, others in neon paint and Halloween attire, and all with the grins of some very excited EDM fans.
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.
For his latest genre-melding party anthem, Borgore teams up with vocalist Paige and his Aokify America tour buddy, Waka Flocka Flame. Appropriately titled, ‘Wild Out’ is a speaker-rattling, bass-blasting dedication to all things baller. Waka Flocka’s verse goes hard, in contrast to Paige’s evocative vocals, which precede a bouncy electro drop, sure to whip a crowd into a frenzy. If you intend on catching these party animals on the Aokify America tour, expect some insane on-stage (and quite possibly in-crowd) antics when this song is dropped.
