With their new track “Bad Guy”, French progressive sensations Gregori Klosman and Tony Romera have teamed up to capture who is the baddest fan of all. The rules are simple: provide a picture of a typical bad guy or villain from movies, anime, comics, or whatever other resource you find, with hashtag #saygoodnighttothebadguy on Twitter or Instagram. The contest winners will receive the pair of Sennheiser headphones Gregori used on tour for the past two years at places like Tomorrowland, Amnesia Ibiza, Mysteryland, and Pacha NYC. In addition, you’ll get the bottle of Pandor that was used for the inspiration of Tony Romera’s new tune (pictures below). While you’re busy hunting for pictures, listen to their new Guru Recordings exclusive powered by electro lulls and heart-pounding drums — it’ll definitely have you conjuring up bad thoughts.
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.
Gregori Klosman’s newest track, “Serial Killer” has been released today, marking the launch of his record label, Guru Recordings. If the tune is indicative of what’s to come from Klosman’s imprint, we’re expecting great things. “Serial Killer” starts off on a spooky note with the John Carpenter composed Halloween theme song, but makes its way to the heavy electro sounds we’ve grown accustomed to hearing emerge from his studio. The stabbing synths and frenetic drums are perfect for next year’s Halloween playlists. We hope no one was killed in the making of this track.
Gregori Klosman’s 20th iteration of his successful podcast, Klosmania, serves as today’s progressive electro wake up call. Not one to shy away from in your face big room blasts, Klosman jumps right into this mix with Arno Cost’s “Head Up” sending it into a tailspin of larger-than-life chord play and fiendishly heavy bass lines. Featuring tracks from up-and-comer Syn Cole, as well as new releases from the talented W&W, Tim Mason, Sultan & Ned Shepard, and Clockwork, the Frenchman puts together a picture perfect snapshot of the last month or so’s biggest releases.

The debut release on Gregori Klosman‘s brand new label, Guru Recordings, “Serial Killer” represents a sonic departure from the Parisian producer’s usual electro outings. Sampling the iconic Halloween theme to intro his latest original release, Klosman shows off his sinister side with a barrage of dark tones and frenetic drum kicks. This stadium-ready assault on the senses does well to set the stage for the young label and will be released officially on February 25th.
Best of Instagram is a feature from Dancing Astronaut that showcases our favorite pictures from our favorite DJs on Instragram each week. This week, we’ve got gems from Tiesto, Major Lazer, Steve Angello, and more.
Today’s Good Morning Mix is brought to you by one of our favorite electro house Frenchmen, Gregori Klosman. Looking over the tracklist, you may recognize a large number of these tunes from our top tracks of November, but in that case this most recent episode of his Klosmania podcast will only serve as a pleasant reminder of the last month in big room — and largely harder-hitting — releases. Klosman features his own new collaboration as Reepublic, Hardwell’s megahit “Apollo,” Firebeatz, Tom Swoon, the Lunde Bros, and Archie just to give you an idea. Stream, download, and check out the tracklist below.
These days collaborations in dance music are a dime a dozen, but when Sebastien Benett, Antoine Clamaran, Gregori Klosman, Tristan Garner and Michael Canitrot formed Reepublic something was distinctly different. Rarely do collaborations involve five artists whose solo careers are already as strongly established as this group. The idea for the production supergroup grew from idle discussions during the guys’ frequent run-ins at airports and on tours, before finally culminating at last year’s Miami Music Week. “We had a dinner together,” the group reflects, “and came out of the conversation with a common wish of joining the forces in the studio and to play all together behind the decks. That’s how Reepublic was born.”
Gregori Klosman is no stranger to hits and he seems to have another one on his hands. His upcoming remix of Sebjak’s “Follow Me” is powerful and employs the kind of drop that mainstream dance music fans are currently favoring. In a word, it’s massive. The heavy electro track features uplifting vocals and whooping synths capable of destroying any dance floor. “Follow Me” is set for release on December 3rd.
Catching up on recent podcasts, Gregori Klosman’s latest installment of Klosmania stands out unsurprisingly. The Parisian’s 17th episode offers a range of electro tracks, and most notably, unique and recent remixes. Without selecting a production of his own, original mixes such as Tristan Garner’s “Rage Again” and Tiesto’s “Pair of Dice” made the cut. Providing even more allure is Dyro’s remix of “Night Like This,” Tony Romera’s remix of “Iron,” and Cazzette’s remix of “Something for the Weekend.”
