Founder of At Night Management and mastermind behind the Swedish sensation known as Avicii, Ash Pournouri looks to embark on his next venture — a label of his own, PRMD Records. With Cazzette and Morten Breum as the first signees, the inaugural release will be Cazzette’s Eject album, previously exclusive to Spotify in three installments. Based in Sweden, Ash claims “facilities will be ready in June and will include four top-of-the-line recording studios and video production facilities in a historic landmark building.” With a seven figure, multi-year, exclusive partnership with Island Def Jam, Pournouri will expand his empire, beyond his established success, through PRMD. Read past the break to hear more of the announcement from Ash himself.
Denmark legend Morten Breum has been a long time favorite here at Dancing Astronaut. After mixing the 19th episode of Axis and releasing a track for Space Food Vol. 1, Breum is back with two more mashups to keep fans satisfied. “Look Up Universe” combines the soulful lyrics of Carli’s “Look Up” with the slow rolling drum breakdown from David Tort’s remix of Feenixpawl’s “Universe.” “Yes vs Bucky Done Gun” is more of a straightforward mash-up but the two tracks from Deorro and M.I.A really work well together, creating a fun bouncy tune – as Breum calls it, a “hill billy” mash-up. You can listen and download the tracks for free below.

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.
Recently dropping a guest mix for BBC Radio 1′s Dance Anthems, Cazzette teased a monstrous new drumstep remix of Morten Breum’s “Changes.” While Cazzette’s penchant for dubstep is more than clear in their signature “dub house” style, rarely have they produced straight dubstep tunes — the exception being their remix of “Ni**as in Paris.” For their newest spin on Morten Breum’s vocal-enhanced original, “Changes,” Cazzette have found a hefty medium between dubstep and drum ‘n’ bass, crafting a vigorously delightful drumstep production. No word on the official release date yet.Posted by
We’ve been hearing whispers Morten Breum‘s big new track “Larva” since about March, but the Danish superstar DJ is finally sharing the love. The preview we have for you below is the instrumental, but the full release includes the extended mix with Swedish twins Rebecca & Fiona — well-known for their work with Kaskade on “Turn It Down” and a number of Adrian Lux tracks — on vocals.
Breum avoids gimmicky big room tricks on this track, giving us not only that recognizable top line melody, but also shaking in tightly produced breaks and bridges to make it feel like a real song. Nause, the young duo also straight out of Scandanavia, does not divert too far from the feel of Breum’s original but by reworking the distinct melody into an even bigger room sound make the track their own. Check out the original’s preview and the full stream of Nause’s remix after the break.
Morten Breum continues his run of recent success with his remix of Medina’s “Forever.” Morten gives the poppy original a serious makeover, adding in an acidic bassline and fragmented snare beat. With a major collaboration with Axwell to be released in the near future, expect to be seeing a lot of Morten over the next year. Check out his latest remix below and if you haven’t heard it yet, click after the break for Morten’s special guest mix on Axis!

Be sure to check out a preview to his remix to Medina’s “Forever,” which he debuted in his Dancing Astronaut Axis mix from last month, and comes out on October 30th via Ultra Records.
