Swedish dance sensations Icona Pop have returned to proper form with their next smash “All Night.” Following up the anthemic “I Love It,” the duo deliver yet another infectious pop hit and toss it up for remix duties from Kryder, Cash Cash, dBerrie, CID and more. New York-based producer dBerrie takes the radio-ready original into anthem territory, building a strong foundation of thunderous kicks and over-the-top chord progressions underneath its sugar-coated exterior. A classic progressive electro track from start to finish, the preview ends just before it really gets started, serving up just a taste of the drop before the snippet abruptly ends. dBerrie’s remix and the entire “All Night” remix package will be released on October 7th.
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.

After keeping fans satisfied with a few free downloads, dBerrie is finally back with his first original mix since “Zenith.” A light build and a rolling bassline combine for a sound fitting of the 2013 festival season. With releases being added to his arsenal left and right, the Brooklyn native is shaping out to have a stellar year. Following the success of his remix to “Radioactive,” Berrie hopes to grab the same attention with “Malfunction,” made available via Flamingo Records.

Although dBerrie just released a preview for “Malfunction,” he has been keeping busy in the studio giving his fans a free download of his latest remix. Taking Imagine Dragon’s “Radioactive,” Berrie speeds up the original indie tune and turns it into an absolutely massive track. The fluid bassline complements the emotion filed lyrics, breathing new life into the year-old track. We might even say that this remix is on par with dBerrie’s remix of “Somebody I Used to Know,” but download below and decide for yourself.Posted by
After spending the beginning of 2013 touring the United States on Generation Wild, dBerrie has been wasting no time hitting us with new releases. “Malfunction” was first previewed in Fedde Le Grand’s Ultra set and set the crowd off. The track quickly builds to a grinding bassline and a similar feel to hard-hitting festival tracks. 2013 could prove to be a breakthrough year for the Brooklyn native, and with songs like “Malfunction” and “Zenith,” he is quickly building up his original track library. “Malfunction” is out May 27th on Flamingo Records.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
Brooklyn native dBerrie is back and has begun breathing energizing life into old tracks. “Angel on My Shoulder,” featuring rhythmic piano melodies to complement the soft female vocals, was originally released by Kaskade in early 2010. dBerrie, however, takes this track to the next level — adding a dance-inducing breakdown while still retaining the original’s melody. While Kaskade has also mashed it himself, it is always nice to see other artists bringing back old tracks.Posted by
Coming off a high after a month long Generation Wild Tour across America, dBerrie follows up his recent track “Aquarius” with a grittier, high-octane electro house release titled “Zenith.” It’s his first official single of 2013, coming by way of Fedde Le Grand and Funkerman’s Flamingo Recordings — and is already catching support from the likes of Thomas Gold, Deniz Koyu and David Guetta. Carefully building the energy with layered drums and spiraling synths, the track draws on the breadth of progressive and electro house styling we’ve come to expect from the New York native.

The contagious sound of elated vocals and whirling synths make this Sneakerz Muzik release impossible to ignore.Posted by
