Sebastian Ingrosso has not been shy in his post-Swedish House Mafia antics. Already racking crossover anthem “Reload” and his Departures residency alongside Axwell at Ushuaia Ibiza, the Swedish icon announces a rare solo headline show at London’s Brixton Academy on December 14th. The landmark show comes four years down the line from Swedish House Mafia’s standard setting headline show at the same venue –- one which epitomized the trio’s ability to take electronic music to new and unchartered live territories. While no additional line-up information has been unveiled, the night promises to be a pre-Christmas spectacle from a man whose career continues to benefit from breaching new territory at every possible turn. Tickets go on general sale July 19 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster or Gigs & Tours. (more…)Posted by
Global dance music has certainly refined its calmer side for 2013. Obscure Swedish lounge house duo Tiedye obviously didn’t miss the memo, with their recently unveiled remix for Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash marking a high-profile venture in the name of recent vocal anthem “Reload”. Rich in instrumental developments and structured around a deep canvas of disco-esque beats, the duo manages to excel the ranks of a straight Daft Punk remix with persistent compositional stamina. With the originals hallmarks respectfully intact, Tiedye offers a melodic by-product of the vintage scope that has embedded itself within modern dance music for 2013. (more…)Posted by
Adding to an already jam-packed run of releases and a successful European stint for 2013, Australian electro monger Tommy Trash makes his formal debut on Size Records next month. As one of the few high-end imprints Tommy has yet to collaborate with, “Monkey In Love,” his follow-up to last months “Blair Bitch Project” for Dim Mak is no-less adrenaline fueled than we have come to expect from the festival primed Aussie. Playing out as the polar opposite to the well-groomed “Reload” alongside Sebastian Ingrosso, the track exercises his low-end complexion with considerable force for Angello’s sought-after label. Following closely behind his recent remix for Destructo on Boys Noize Records, fans need not fear that the unconventional club icon is losing his balance of crossover tracks and livid festival anthems just yet.

Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash‘s mega-hit known as “Reload” has dominated festivals, nightclubs, and everywhere in between over the past year. Today, it has officially become even bigger as Pete Tong premiered its vocal mix as his Essential New Tune. The tandem call on John Martin to replicate the singing he’s produced on “Save The World” and “Don’t You Worry Child,” taking the title literally for the song’s lyrics.Posted by
It’s inevitable that countdowns will always spark controversy, that’s just the nature of the beast. Some tracks will be snubbed, some overlooked, and some ranked higher than you may have expected. We’ve already gone over our ranking criteria at length but despite our own self-imposed guidelines, 2012 proved to be more difficult to rank than years past. With the EDM explosion officially in full swing throughout the year, the sheer number of releases was mind numbing, and — consequently — nearly impossible to rank. There has been no greater challenge for the editors at Dancing Astronaut than creating the list of the Biggest Tracks of 2012.
With Kaskade back in his KMM swing, we can expect stellar mashups week in and week out. This time around, Mr. Freaks of Nature is dishing out two bootlegs — one downloadable, one streamable — both of which feature tunes from Tommy Trash. The first is Kaskade’s “Empty Streets” vocal upon Trash’s “Cascade,” which can be claimed from SoundCloud. The second, for our listening pleasures only, is Tommy’s “Reload” collaboration laced with the ever famous “Eyes.” Jump below the break and enjoy a Monday mashup on a Tuesday.
Along with selling out shows around the world in record time, Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia has a new track out today with Tommy Trash. “Reload” has been a long time coming, and we’ve known that it would be a bomb since Tommy mistakenly revealed it a few months back (and then told us more in our Behind The Booth video). The melody is made for humming along, and we fully expect this to become a staple in DJ sets for the coming winter festival season. Everything about this track just works: the progression, the effects, the little things added here and there that help justify why it took so long to be released…
