The return of EDC to New York for its 2nd year has now arrived. This year we physically will move to New York as Citi Field plays host (officially the 1st time in NY and not a “return”) and we’ll shine a spotlight on what each day has to offer with ‘Everything You Need to Know.’ We’ll break down what sets you can’t afford to skip out on and what we are dying to hear this weekend. Stay tuned tomorrow for Saturday.
To start, we’re waiting ...Read More
It can be argued that this year’s EDC NYC lineup is a step down from last year’s, but that doesn’t mean we’re all not anxiously awaiting this weekend’s arrival. In a lineup that seems to have no rhyme or reason, and stages without themes, the place to be on Day 2 is definitely The Circuit Grounds.
As an updated from yesterday’s preview (click here if you missed it), a Venue Map is now available and you can check it out HERE
Also for those that are not attending SiriusXM’s Electric Area ...Read More

This image is of one patron from this past weekend’s Electric Daisy Carnival in Flushing, NY. This image has been circulated with hateful comments such as “Don’t be this girl” and other insensitivities. I sadly had to witness this girl get carried past the entire front from of Circuit Grounds instead of discreetly around the back. Perhaps if instead of shaming her and snapping pictures on smartphones someone had actually helped her, this girl would be spared the disrespe ...Read More
New Years is going to be a huge night for EDM in NYC. Beyond Avicii at Pier 94, we have the ever prolific deadmau5 taking over Pier 36 downtown for an epic night of synth beats. Deadmau5 will be supported by up and coming LA based DJ and producer Audrey Napoleon, who is no stranger to helming large venues. Sheâ€™s already a resident DJ at LAâ€™s famed Avalon and Music Box nightclubs, where she has spun with Richie Hawtin, Wolfgang Gartner, Simian Mobile Disco and M.A.N.D.Y. amongst others.
Audrey recently released her single Foxy Boxy as a free download on her Facebook page, which you can pick up here. The track is deep and melodic, reflecting Audrey’s techno influences, and belies the electricity that lies behind her production.
Now call me a cliche, but I can’t help but support female producers rising up in a crowded (non-female dominated) field. Audrey was working in nightlife when she decided to take a hand at making music, and in my opinion, she will only keep moving on up.
I have been a massive Dirty South advocate ever since I saw him for my 20th birthday with Mark Knight at Pacha a few years ago. Although I am partial to the clubbier records he was producing back then (see ‘Alamo’ and ‘Let It Go’), he is still a monster in the EDM circuit and one of the finest DJs I have ever heard play. ‘Walking Alone’ was a track championed by every recognizable DJ in the last two months, and his an awesome vocal hook provided by Erich Hecht. It is more or less a festival anthem, and was a staple in Dragan’s sets until he started rinsing this new tune he recently debuted.

Production dream team Mat Zo & Arty released their epic single Mozart Sunday, and today brings the presentation of the song’s official music video. And you thought music videos were dead! Well think again – in this production a tiny Mozart look-alike whips a gang of dancing riff raffs into shape. Take a peek for yourself and enjoy the amazing track.
Release date announced for new Bart B More & TAI collaboration ‘Nobody Canna Cross It’. Scheduled for a December 26th release, Secure Recordings again provide another devastating acid techno bomb. Horns, synth, and bass all play an integral role in making this a rave necessity; please be careful when listening the drop may cause a spontaneous urge to jump… WE LOCKED AWAY IN DA WILDERNESS

Found this gem looking through some Electric Zoo videos; supported by Carl Cox ‘These Sounds’ from Joe Brunning is a piece of tech wizardry. Powerful yet light disco-esque synths are the main focus while a solid drum loop balances the composition. This one could work for both the minimal crowd as well as some build/break/drop fans. Definitely check it out if you’re looking for something a bit different.

So I am seeing Swedish House Mafia at MSG this Friday, and I am completely ready for a mainstream, history-making set. However, I can assure you this Verboten party will be groovier and better in many facets. Seth Troxler was recently named #2 in the Resident Advisor 2011 poll, which is essentially the DJ Mag poll of the underground universe. He recently founded his label Visionquest along with some of his buddies, and the group was immensely successful in Ibiza this season. His essential mix has over 50,000 plays, and he cites his influences as “the chirping of crickets, the whirling of spaceships, and the sweet sounds of whistling voodoo magic”. Verboten also throws some of the best parties, and Good Units is a venue built for techy, minimal, deep madness. If you want to cleanse your musical palette after Swedish House Mafia, buy tickets to see Seth Troxler and label-mate Shaun Reeves HERE.
In a Star Wars like twist, today Steve Aoki released Ladi Dadi ft. Wynter Gordon (Part II) as a prequel to the still unreleased Part I. Aoki leaked Part II via YouTube Dec. 9 and Part I is to be released as a part of Aoki’s upcoming album Wonderland and as a single. Part deux is a club dub remix of Part I and features vocals by Queens local Wynter Gordon, who co-wrote and was featured on Flo Rida’s Sugar. Her vocal overlays take the track to the next level, along with the grind and grime that Aoki’s dubstep production brings to the table. Don’t forget to pick up tickets to Aoki’s Deadmeat tour, which he will bring to Roseland Feb. 19.

On December 6th, Phil Kieran Recordings, self-label of techno artist Phil Kieran released Series #001, a compilation album containing remixes and edits of the last eight Phil Kieran Recordings releases. While listening to the first four tracks of Series #001, I was steadily chair-grooving at my desk, but my attention was focused more on the seemingly indefinite volume of economics homework rather than the music. But, when that first bass line dropped in track five, ‘Juicy (Egbert Remix)’, my attention was pleasantly diverted.
‘Juicy (Egbert Mix)’ is a banger. There aren’t many other ways to put it. The bass drops to that “Carl Cox frequency” that makes your lips quiver and your nostrils flair involuntarily, while the hypnotic overtones and groovy drum sequence drive this tune straight into funky town!
Whether you’re a techno enthusiast or drum and bass fanatic, this tune is well worth a listen. ‘Juicy (Egbert Remix)’ undoubtedly earns Ethan’s Groove Guarantee, as well as a current #14 spot on Beatport’s Techno Top 100.
