As humanitarian workers begin the daunting task of aiding the survivors in the Philippines and assessing the damage caused by the historic Typhoon Haiyan, the dance community has also taken steps to be a part of the recovery process. With Afrojack urging fans to donate and Axwell using his own proceeds to do so, Ferry Corsten has taken things a step further by organizing #DonateAndDance, a fundraising show to take place on November 20th at Amsterdam’s club Panama.
Blasterjaxx, Dennis Ruyer, Jacob van Hage, Marco V, Oliver Twizt, Quintino, Sandro Silva, Sied van Riel and Ferry himself will be performing at the event and donating the proceeds to the Dutch GIRO 555 calamity fund. Tickets can be purchased for 10 Euro at #DonateAndDance’s website, where those within The Netherlands but unable to attend can also make donations.
For those in the U.S. interested in sending aid, The Red Cross is accepting donations here.
Premiered by Hardwell at this year’s Tomorrowland, Sandro Silva‘s “Payback” had garnered support over the course of the past several months prior to today’s Revealed release. Known for his fat synths and heavy kicks, Silva offers fans with even more heavy-footed beats that are reminiscent of “Epic,” but embody more forceful energy in vein of 2013′s festival trend. The track’s simplistic yet highly developed structure creates the peak time feel that Sandro has championed in the past, inducing a rush of euphoria.
This beat should be familiar; a revengeful festival weapon used by the likes of Afrojack and Hardwell all summer long. It’s Sandro Silva‘s “Payback,” and it’s finally making its public release on November 11th via Revealed Recordings. Another record in vein of the beloved big room sound of 2013, following suit of “Animals” and company, the latest from the “Epic” producer comes just in time to complete its splash upon the live circuit.
Coming from Spinnin Records this weekend, Sandro Silva has released his latest production. By the name of “Puna,” his most recent effort delivers high pitched electro anticipation quickly shaken by unrelenting kicks. While a proper match for massive crowds, “Puna” comes ahead of “Payback,” his future Revealed release that’s due to become one of the biggest tracks once released and could already be considered his most attractive tune since “Epic.”
Sandro Silva is currently the proud owner of a track that has dominated festival season as an ID with support from Afrojack, Steve Angello, and everyone in between. Before he releases “Payback,” however, the producer will ease fans into his newfound anthemic sound with “Puna.” Due for a Spinnin Records release on September 27th, this prequel features top-notch progression and a significant drop in the vein of a popular big room sound. If you’re into “Puna,” beware; this is only the catalyst for Silva’s fall season. His future hit “Payback” is expected to pack a similar flare only with a magnified explosive force.
With its infamous summer clubbing season now well underway, you would struggle to find a European destination more hotly discussed among clubbers than Ibiza. An island famed for its past hedonistic attributes, unparalleled clubbing experiences and more surprisingly, some damn good sushi, the White Isle sees more DJs per square foot than any other European hotspot in the world. Though its club circuit saw a lot of chops and changes on the approach to 2013, there has never been a better time to experience the island for its lesser known attributes. Dancing Astronaut tapped a host of the island’s frequent flyers to scope the secrets and spoils of Balearic clubbing straight from the DJ’s mouth. Hit more to learn the ropes from our all-star panel of guests.
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.
All before the age of 21, Sandro Silva has co-produced long lasting anthems such as “Epic” and countless remixes, from “Forever Young” to “She Wolf.” This week, Silva revisits his December release, Let Go Tonight, with a remix package featuring takes from Starkillers, Makj, and Justin Prime. The percussive club tune is shattered by vibrant electro and dub stylings, orienting it beyond its original brand. Starkillers offers a surprise with his rendition, throwing dubstep into his trademark sound while Makj continues to impress with his increasingly popular grooves. Justin Prime wraps up the package with the melodic relief that Silva and Makj left behind. (more…)
It’s safe to say we didn’t expect to see Borgore release big room house tracks any time soon. In rare form, the audacious dubstep veteran collaborates with trap prodigy, Carnage, to produce a dance floor trembler to rival “Epic.” “Incredible,” set to release on Spinnin’ Records, almost feels like the sequel to the Silva and Quintino original. In the same way Terminator 2 turned up the action, Borgore and Carnage’s sequel turns up the bass. We probably could have just condensed this track description by referring you to the title. Dropping February 4th, the day after the Super Bowl, “Incredible” will either console fans in Monday mourning or continue the celebration. (Let’s go 49ers.)
David Guetta has once again teamed up with vocalist Sia, following their monster hits “Wild One Two” and “Titanium” with the brand new “She Wolf.” Guetta’s production comes in edgier form than usual, but our ears are set on the Michael Calfan remix. Calfan replicates his groove from “Resurrection” and injects a thumping bass line to transform a radio record into a dance tune. Calfan’s remix is available along with the original and a remix from Sandro Silva on Beatport via What A Music.
