España’s youngest DJ/producer, Danny Avila, wows the dance community once again with his newest big room hit, “Poseidon.” The 18-year-old Tiësto protégé brings fans a high energy, dance floor anthem that features bouncing percussion, sharp crescendos, stabbing synths and an intense bass line of the harder house variety. Beginning 2013 as one of dance music’s up and coming artists to watch out for, Avila dominated the year with festival showcases from Ultra‘s main stage to EDC and Coachella, as well as global performances from the UK to South Africa and plenty of countries in-between. “Poseidon,” released through Tiësto’s own Musical Freedom, cements Avila as a proven force to be reckoned with and we can only wait to see what Madrid’s young producer has up his sleeve for 2014.

Krewella is marching forward with their album success alongside their latest single, releasing the “Live for the Night” Remix EP. Both before and after a monumental debut performance on Good Morning America as the first dance music performance on a morning show broadcast, the single has gained rapid attention from both pop and dance music culture. This compilation of remixes has an incredible assortment of variety, ranging from heavier dub-bass sounds from Xilent and a taste of hardstyle from Pegboard Nerds to Dash Berlin’s escalating, airy progressive house take on Jahan and Yasmine’s vocals. Finally, W&W and Danny Avila & Deniz Koyu each take on a hard-hitting house approach to “Live for the Night,” creating a five-track EP that transforms the tune into something new with every artist rendition.
Earlier this year, Krewella’s success for their monster hit, “Alive,” was elevated to its highest potential with the steady release of remixes that satisfied every and all music palates. Their most recent success, “Live for the Night,” will follow in the footsteps of “Alive” and release a remix package that will expand the range of the already upbeat and catchy original. With the likes of W&W and Dash Berlin (who both released theirs on Soundcloud last month), Xilent, Danny Avila & Deniz Koyu, and Pegboard Nerds, their most recent hit will undergo the remix treatment and broaden the reach of this Chicago trio.
As a little preview to the full compilation, the trio debuted the Pegboard Nerds remix of their track. Most fans will already be familiar with the Nerds – they have been a consistent force in the trio’s remixes and, most recently, their “This is Not The End” off of Get Wet. This Scandinavian duo reworks the track into hardstyle, which has been a personal favorite style of Krewella as of late. It is jam-packed with speed and high energy, with glimpses of glitch-hop (in true Nerds’ style) and a few dips into trap. It’s a dub-filled treat that will satisfy both Nerd’s fans and the Krew until the full remix package is released on November fifth.

Madrid-born, internationally-trained teen Danny Avila rang in 2013 as an undisputed artist to watch. After dedicating the earlier portion of the year touring with Generation Wild and gaining respect behind the decks, the youngster once hailed as EDM’s Justin Bieber next struck the release circuit with “Voltage” and “Tronco,” and he’s back this October to bolster his arsenal once more. Shapeshifting festival-sized electro house with dancehall vocals, Danny’s “Rasta Funk” offers all to be desired of a big room effort — from melodic highs to gritty lows — with the addition of a carribean twang.
Since being released as an official single from Get Wet, Krewella‘s “Live For The Night“ has picked up steam as a proper follow up to “Alive.” Even then, their sophomore commercial success won’t end its originally product. Already being remixed by the likes of Dash Berlin and W&W, the track has also landed in the hands of Deniz Koyu and Danny Avila for a Generation Wild tag team twist. The tour mates give an electro spice to Krewella’s flavorful vocals and, while you can sample the preview below, stream it exclusively on Spotify.
With over 75 countries represented at Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld organizers are doing their part to ensure that diversity carries over across the Atlantic, and no stage shows as much breadth as Saturday’s Anthem Stage. Names from the UK, Sweden, Puerto Rico, Spain, Estonia, Columbia, Miami, New York, San Fransisco, Missouri and Atlanta itself are all on the bill, with musical stylings that only loosely share the progressive stamp. Whether you want to get groovy with a 20 year veteran of the scene or go hard with a not yet 20-year-old producer, go for a trouse, Brit, or a fan of the 16-bit, our guide to the Anthem Stage has got you covered.
Danny Avila rang in 2013 as one of dance music’s young stars with perhaps the greatest of expectations. Touring the globe at an impressive rate, the “Breaking Your Fall” producer kept quiet on the production front for the first half of the year, but has since embarked on a studio spree sparked by “Voltage” and followed by “Tronco.” The Spain-bred stud doesn’t look to slow down anytime soon and has most recently previewed his next effort, “Rasta Funk.” His experimentation with reggae sounds and dancehall flare doesn’t drift far from his usual antics, and are in fact balanced throughout the preview. “Rasta Funk” is expected to toss surprises in DJ sets this fall and will be released in full on October 4th via Spinnin Records.
Danny Avila only released his first single last fall, but has since become a staple performer as one of the highest demanded neophytes in dance music. Surprisingly, throughout his own tours and festival appearances around the globe, Avila has only recently dropped his second single and brings forth his third today with help from Tiësto’s Musical Freedom imprint. With bouncy chords and a hard hitting back bone, Danny presents “Tronco” as an electro house translatable track favorable on dance floors and festival grounds alike.
