With the runaway success of “Breaking Your Fall” already in his rearview, Danny Avila returns to the studio for his latest big room production. Still unnamed, Danny debuted the track this past week to a packed house at HALO nightclub in Hamburg. Taking a much heavier approach than his anthemic hit, Danny’s latest is high-octane electro at its finest. 3-2-1-Jump!Posted by
Deniz Koyu releases documentary from Generation Wild tour with Danny Avila, dBerrie, and Mikael Weermets
This winter, Deniz Koyu, Danny Avila, dBerrie, Mikael Weermets, and photographer Kirill took the road on their own tour bus for Generation Wild. The tour was an experience with a dimension beyond the music — it was a full fledged party from the sounds to the theatrics. The chemistry between the energetic DJs was evident in back-to-back-to-back sets that went into the morning hours, and Kirill’s champagne facials along with CO2 blasters from the booth had crowds across the US off their feet. If you missed Generation Wild in your city, it’s not too late to catch the action. Deniz Koyu has released the tour’s official documentary, taking fans in the booth, on the bus, and across the country.Posted by

Just after celebrating his 18th birthday, Danny Avila has announced that he will join Hakkasan Las Vegas as a resident in the summer months. Starting in April, Danny will play both the WET REPUBLIC pool parties as well as the monolithic megaclub, sharing the space with Calvin Harris, Tiësto, Deadmau5 and more. As the youngest resident in Las Vegas history, Danny is setting a new precedent for Vegas nightlife and rubbing elbows with dance music’s biggest talents before he’s even old enough to drink in the US.
Neil Moffit, CEO of Angel Management Group cites Avila’s “captivating drive” and “youthful spirit” that “breathes life into his performances.” He added, “(Danny’s) nascent but ambitious career mirrors the spirit and drive of Hakkasan Las Vegas, and we are excited for this synergistic partnership.”Posted by

Ultra Music Festival stands alone, distant from the EDCs of the world, as the landmark event for every DJ that graces the decks of its stages. Much like how football fans have the instinctual ability to recall the stars and game changing plays of Superbowls past, electronic fans will, naturally, always remember their favorite artists, the corresponding set list and major moments from any given year at Ultra.
Headliners of the annual festival share the same glory as Superbowl MVPs, but it’s also the opportunity for dance music rookies to find their breakthrough with one everlasting set, to be remembered in the same vein as the Superbowl rookie who becomes immortalized with one historic catch. With hundreds of DJs slated to perform at Ultra this year, we take a narrow look at the members of the freshman class who are due to establish themselves under the South Beach sun this March.
Social media has greatly enhanced the connection between fans and artists by allowing them to connect on a level far greater than that of a spectator. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have given us an unprecedented look into the lives of our modern day rockstars by taking us behind the booth, into their homes and studios, and even sometimes into their pasts. Click below the break to check out some of your favorite artists in their younger years and find out which superstars got an early start by strumming guitars or tickling the ivories. We have shots from Steve Angello, Chuckie, Skrillex, Nervo, A-Trak, and more.
They’re not the Baby Boomers and they don’t comfortably fit between Generation Y and Generation X. They’re not listening to classic rock, old-school hip-hop, or boy band pop. The next generation of music fans are listening to electronic dance music. Without a label, however, they are in search of an identity to call their own. This winter, a group of DJs and a nightlife photographer set out to attach that label and, in many ways, have brought the ‘wild’ out of their generation. The DJs? Deniz Koyu, Danny Avila, dBerrie, and Mikael Weermets. The photographer? Kirill Bichutsky. The movement? Generation Wild.
Making their stop at New York City’s Webster Hall, Koyu and Co. put on a clinic for the generation they’ve dubbed “Wild.” Separating these fans from musical generations past, the team of party-provoking stars didn’t provide a concert — they provided an absurd identity for a generation in search of distinction.
As dBerrie continues to lend his talents on the Generation Wild Tour alongside Deniz Koyu and Danny Avila, he also preps for a return to Fedde Le Grand‘s label Flamingo Records for a follow-up to his most recent release “Aquarius.” His latest production “Zenith” is a venture from his first original production of the new year which features the stunning vocals of Tatiana Owens. The New York-based producer replaces the bubbling house beat of “Aquarius” with a grinding bass-driven beat on “Zenith,” giving listeners a hard-edged house production. “Zenith” is due out March 25, but dBerrie decided to give fans a teaser of the powerful production today. Click below the break to listen.
New York native dBerrie has returned fresh off his Flamingo Records release of ”Aquarius,” ready to drop his next remix. Taking on Danny Avila’s “Breaking Your Fall,” Berrie swaps the feel-good progressive line for a grittier electro beat that extends the track’s lifespan through afterhours. Courtesy of Big Beat, “Breaking Your Fall” comes packaged with additional remixes from Lucky Date, Mikael Weermets, and Sick Individuals. Catch up with some of dance music’s talented rookies — with dBerrie at the forefront — as they take their turns on Danny Avila’s breakthrough hit; streams beyond the break.
