“I feel a storm is somewhere near,” are lyrics sang on the haunting track “Get Me Outta Here” featuring Flux Pavilion which appears on STEVE AOKI’s NEON FUTURE I album due out September 30 on Dim Mak/Ultra Music. Set over a shuffling beat punctuated by synths that could double for laser blasts from a starship circa 2114, the words tie together on the future music composition created with Flux Pavilion, one of the U.K.’s most prominent producers.
Meanwhile, STEVE AOKI is set to appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday, September 30 in support of Neon Future I. He will perform the song “Rage The Night Away” featuring Waka Flocka Flame.
At the same time, he is still heating up radio waves with his first Top 40 radio track “Delirious (Boneless)” with Chris Lake and Tujamo featuring Kid Ink. The song–touted by Zach Frydenlund of COMPLEX (June 3) as a “…club anthem that’s all about a night on the town with no worries. Kid Ink molds right in with the club record, delivering quality verses and an infectious hook on the song” — has just been added to KHKS Dallas and WNOW Indy and still continues to see strong support from stations like KAMP in Los Angeles, KMVQ in San Francisco, KKHH in Houston and WFLC in Miami just to name a few. Currently it ranks at #28 on Shazam overall in the U.S.
The follow-up to his 2009 Grammy-nominated debut Wonderland, Neon Future I is an all-star extravaganza from one of dance music’s most heralded entertainers. It features collaborations with the likes of Fall Out Boy, Empire of the Sun, will.i.am, Afrojack and Bonnie McKee. Album tracks “Rage The Night Away” featuring Waka Flocka Flame, “Free The Madness” featuring Machine Gun Kelly and “Delirious (Boneless)”–are out now.

Parisian DJ SUB ZERO makes his welcome return to Guru Records in the form of aptly titled ‘In The Club’ out on the 28th of July.
The Frenchman’s roots are on show from the start with an up-front, hip-hop drum pattern paving the way for the main body of the track that raises the energy before dropping into a garage-house beat. Funky and with a dark edge it’s a soundtrack to dance floors everywhere, and impossible not to move to.
Finding a new home in Miami, Paris’ Olivier Amiel aka SUB ZERO’s career has taken him down an interesting path. From a crate-digging hip-hop DJ in the golden era of the genre – the 90s – he quickly escalated through the Parisian ranks, fusing R&B and dance music with his first love – hip-hop.
Having sought the sun-up in Sin City last year, 2014 sees Richard Durand take the ‘Search’ in the opposite direction, to a place ever increasingly tagged “the Vegas of the East”. The most gleaming emirate of them all, Dubai is as famous for its cloud-piercing skyscrapers as it is its wide expanse deserts. It’s also supports an electronic music ecosystem that’s surpassed ‘flourishing’ and long since hit ‘overdrive’, boasting huge crowd-pull festivals, a thriving underground studio scene, dedicated EDM sites by the dozen and its own monthly dance mag.
Reflecting new clubbing principalities has been historically key to ‘Sunrise’s genetic. Richard’s fifth trip since taking the fiesta over from Tiësto, the excursion East sees the man from Amsterdam join forces with UK trance maestro Lange. The album follows in the fine traditions of the series by tapping the most creative, edge-cutting trance at its studio source. From there the pair have harmonically and seamlessly mixed ‘Sunrise’s Class of 2014 into three mixes that will again act as summer’s trance barometer. And this year, with ‘Dubai’, that reads hotter than ever.
Of the latest in the mix-comp series, Richard says:
“I think the only real surprise that comes with this year’s ‘In Search of Sunrise’ destination is that it hasn’t come Dubai’s way sooner. Dance music has broken out in so many areas since I took over mixing the album, that’s it’s been a mission in itself to keep up!
Dubai is a place I’ve played many times now and somewhere I know I’ll never get tired of coming back to. People go out of their way to find great music, great nights and great experiences here. It’s that passion, dedication and selectivity that I’m trying to reflect by shining the ‘Search’ light on the emirate”.
Reflecting everything from its mirrored high-rise cosmopolitan to its heat refracted sandy shimmer, I.S.O.S. 12’s audio skilfully captures both the essence and heartbeat of Dubai’s DNA. Richard & Lange’s shared mission to bring its tracklist one album-exclusive after another has resulted in 200+ mixed-minutes of incredible music.
Richard’s first mix initially comes quartered in the provinces of trance-progressive. Azotti feat. Bagga Bownz’s ‘Day And Night’ and Talamanca’s ‘Ocean Drive’ soundscape its beatific intro, before Laura Aqua’s bowed-but-unbroken vocals on Jeremy Vancaulart & Assaf’s ‘The Space Between’ turn up the emotional wattage. From there ‘Dubai’s shades & patterns undulate from the trance-tropic (Sean Tyas’ ‘Take A Moment’, RAM’s ‘Epic’ and others) to hothousers like Somna & Yang’s ‘Chasing Stars’. Adding to his own lucent album overture ‘Dubai Desert Fish’, Richard adds the purpose-built Tech of ‘Shield Of Faith’ to the mix’s midsection and the spicy ‘Sambuca’ to its closeout.
Dawning every bit as bright, the second mix brings fresh-cut music like Ira’s ‘Don’t Tell Me’ (vocalled by the aptly christened Paulina Dubaj), ‘Forever In Our Hearts’ from Holland’s Ruben De Ronde and, adding deeper, more eclectic tones, Moonbeam’s ‘I Go On’. Alex O’Rion heats up on ‘Cocoa’, whilst High5 feat. Nanje Nowack ‘Ten Thousand Suns’ and ‘Karma’ from Hungary’s Sunny Lax keep things equally as thermal. Tying off his 2014 Sunrise quest, Richard works in ‘The Inquisitor’ from the on-fire Driftmoon (marking the pair’s second appearance after ‘Luminance’), the pure driven trance of Elfsong’s ‘Seldarine’ and Amir Hussian & Allen Watts equally flammable ‘Step Into My World’.
After recruiting Myon & Shane 54 to his Las Vegas ‘Search’ last year, for 2014 Richard has invited none other than Lange to guest mix the third and final ‘Dubai’ disc.
On joining mission: Dubai, Lange says:
“I was very excited to receive the invite to be part of the legendary ISOS series! I’ve really enjoyed putting this mix together; it’s turned out pretty dark and moody, spanning Progressive Trance through to peak time club bangers.”
Over 80 minutes he brings together both the best of the underground with music from some of its scene-wide legends. I.S.O.S. forefather Tiësto’s ‘Just Be’ (in its newly reworked Kris O’Neil form), Andy Moor’s ‘Fade To Light’, ‘Out Of Coverage’ by Bobina and his own remake of ‘A Different Shade Of Crazy’ are just some of the big-name highs. Newer production names shine just as bright, as music from Tangle, Johnny Yono, Danilo Ercole, Dimension and others define and refine Lange’s ‘Dubai’ vision.
‘In Search Of Sunrise 12: Dubai Mixed by Richard Durand & Lange’ brings what MIXMAG calls “the greatest trance series of them all” a new level high. It arrives in stores June 2nd.

Already a smash on Spotify and a fan favorite at Tiësto’s recent Hakkasan Las Vegas performances, the deep summer vibe of “Say Something” is now available to own via Casablanca Records.
As a fan of many different genres, Tiësto isn’t afraid to explore that dance music space and uses his DJ sets, Musical Freedom Records and Sirius XM Club Life channel as a platform to support everything from big room, deep house, trap and most everything in between. “Say Something” reflects Tiesto’s love and appreciation for dance music’s deeper side.
Tiësto continues a summer long celebration of his new album, A Town Called Paradise, with performances at Made In America on August 31 and Global Citizen Festival in New York City’s Central Park on September. To commemorate album singles “Wasted” [featuring Matthew Koma] and “Red Lights” reaching Gold status (certified by the RIAA for digital sales in excess of 500,000), Tiësto will host The Gold Party as part of his CLUBLIFE residency at Hakkasan Nightclub in Las Vegas on Friday September 12, 2014. That night, he will also personally debut the video for his new single “Light Years Away” [featuring DBX].
A Town Called Paradise [Casablanca Records/ Republic Records/ Musical Freedom] is out now.
After enjoying unparalleled club success and peaking at #4 on the Beatport charts in March, iconic DJ/producer Eric Prydz is has now released brand new single ‘Liberate’.
Now based in Los Angeles, Prydz closed out 2013 with his spectacular ‘Epic 2.0‘ tour, taking in dates across New York, Chicago and LA, as well as the news that his Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 was voted ‘Essential Mix Of The Year’ by the station’s listeners.
Carrying that momentum firmly into 2014, Prydz’ latest single ‘Liberate’ exudes the lush, melody-rich production style he’s become renowned for and confirms his status as one of the world’s leading dance music acts. Premiered by Zane Lowe as his ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1 and already on the playlist radars of fellow tastemakers Pete Tong and Annie Mac, ‘Liberate’ is looking every bit one of 2014’s big, dance floor anthems.
Awash with delicate notes and full-bodied, glistening synths, Prydz works his unique brand of classic, dance floor groove to the max amidst a series of euphoric crescendos, all underpinned by a soaring, strung-out vocal. Also set for an exclusive official video in the coming weeks, it packs all the ammunition required to make a serious impression on the charts.
With a hotly-anticipated new album scheduled for release later in the year, as well as a landmark ‘EPIC 3.0’ live show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on September 27th and summer performances at both Creamfields and SW4, expect ‘Liberate’ to play a significant part in what’s shaping up to be another extraordinary year for Eric Prydz.

LA-based Jesse Tittsworth has been a cult concern since his inception in early 2000s partly due to his name (of course), his fascination with food, and his soaring reputation and grandeur since the days of Baltimore Club that led him into co-founding T&A Records (Tittsworth & Ayres) back in 2006. Hailed as the first few who initially documented the sounds of Moombahton, it is without a doubt that the maestro is clearly well-versed in a lengthy scale of eardrum destruction. His tight, technically adept approach to the genre and astonishing skills has delivered an array of monumental tracks and soaring choruses that has become the backbone of the industry. We catch up with the virtuoso who dropped by at Zouk Club, KL in November and take a look into the many aspects of his life.
S: Yo DJ Tittsworth! Hey, thanks for taking the time to talk us. So we are about to drill you with some questions here. Let’s start with your club U Street Music Hall, which is reputed to be one of the best clubs in DC. So how often do you spin at your club and how does it feel to be the owner and the DJ at a premise that you have inspired?
T: Urm.. I go there maybe once every 2 to 3 months depending on what kind of stuff that’s happening. It’s an incredible feeling to be able to play at a club that you have help to unfold, where your input is everywhere from the sound system to the crowd that you have build along the years. Of course, the first few years weren’t easy, there were many sleepless night but at the end of the day, it paid off. Until today, no matter where I go in the world, U Street Music Hall still remains as one of my favourite places to spin at.
S: Seems like your plate is full. So tell us, how do you cope with the pressure of handling your passion and your business since it look as if it requires a lot of your time and commitment?
T:The first two years were crucial and were the utmost priority at the initial stage. Most of my time was dedicated to the club, in shaping and moulding it so I almost had no time for studio and production. But i have no complains about it because it did help in increasing my business senses and my practical views towards music. After 2 years, the club settled down and we had a really good team running the show and looking after it so i finally had the chance to go back to the studio and work on my production.
S: You’re from DC, a place known for its budding music scene. So what drove you into EDM amidst the vast choices in music and given the fact that you have a pretty colossal experience playing Drum and Bass?
T: Growing up, I listened to all sorts of music. Genres like Indie Rock and Go-Go (sub-genre associated with funk, which originated from DC) and Rock bands were all extremely legendary in DC. A lot of my friends were into Indie bands so naturally it left an impact on me and of course Baltimore club was also happening back then and was part of my influences. When I first started DJ-ing, I was playing lots of Hip Hop records and collecting 7 inches from bands and stuff like that. It wasn’t until I went to support a friend of mine, actually it’s very funny as it turns out this friend of mine ended up being Valentino Khan’s agent so it’s funny how he’s connected with this guy but originally I went to see him DJ in a rave. At that time, it was very common to have Hip Hop at rave parties, and you would go into one room and there will be like QBert or Craze or someone you know spinning. And that was my first time being at a rave and experiencing the other end of dance music. I collected Drum and Bass records prior to that but never really saw how it was put together. From there, I work from Hip Hop to Drum and Bass and then it just hit me. I started to go to all the techno, house and rave parties and the rest is history.
S: Is there a place that you have played at before that has left such an impact on you that you would very much love to go back and perform?
T:You know, any place with people that are into what I do, has an open minded philosophy in music and really gets into it, it’s a win for me. I definitely have lots of fond memories throughout the years like playing in Tokyo, Christmas Eve in São Paolo, Fabric for the very first time; Taiwan since it was the first and only time my mom saw me DJ-ing in her home country, so that was kinda fun and of course playing at U-hall is always great.I can name all these milestone moments and all these fond memories, but at the end of the day, I don’t really like to replicate the experiences. I just move forward and appreciate the moments and look forward to being in any room that wants to create a new memory.
S:In all your performances, what makes your set so interesting?
T: I have fun playing a set because it’s important for the DJ to experience the sheer moment of ecstasy so I kind of go out of my way to ensure that I stay interested in what I do. So I have to constantly have some kind of exordium in music that would interest me just to ensure that I won’t get bored in what I do.It helps me to stay focus while challenging my creativity and pushing me in breaking new boundaries. It truly pays off and I learn a great deal in the process. When I bring my music to the dance floor and the crowd starts to become energetic and let loose, you know that you have achieved something. It’s special in it’s own way. With fusion of tracks combined together it sets a benchmark for my own musical identity and also coins something that is fun in return.
S: How do you maintain your figure and health when you have such a huge passion for food? We know you love food.
T:To be honest with you, I had to work really hard to not look like before. (shows a picture from his phone). So I had to completely overhaul my lifestyle and choices. Nowadays, I eat smaller portions than what I was used to. Also I think people have this skewed idea of my eating habits and thinks that I eat a lot of crazy shit all the time. It’s not all true coz like when I go home and work in the studio, I’m eating chicken breast and rice and sitting in the room with my underwear for 3 days working on Logic or something like that. So I guess the answer to your question is; cut your food portion and increase your metabolism. So I have to make sure I don’t eat deep fried frog covered in bacon. At home I’m like always making juice and chicken breast and shit like that.
S: 2013 has been a great year for you. So what’s the plans for 2014?
T:Ok, I have a record coming up with Valentino Khan on Dim Mak, Steve Aoki’s label in the first half of the year. I’ve also finished a record with Q-Tip and Theophilus and now we’re working to get it out as well. Laidback Luke started remixing the track and I’m just working on a whole bunch of new music right now and hopefully will be able to release them in the first quarter of 2014. So yeah, things are looking good for the first half of the year. I’m also planning on an Asian trip so I’ll propably be back here mid year. So I’m also looking forward to that.

Clockwork returns to the spotlight with his third release of 2014. Following the release of his big-room anthem “Champion” on Dim Mak this March, Clockwork demonstrates his versatility with his new track “Signals,” out today. Collaborating with the skyrocketing vocalist Taylr Renee, Clockwork guides the listener through a melodic journey, emphasizing elements of progressive house and electro. The beautiful tune is equal part melancholy and thrill, simultaneously tugging at your heartstrings and moving your feet.
March’s “Champion” followed up multiple releases from Clockwork in 2013 on Dim Mak Records. These included his single “Blitz,” his anticipated Surge EP that hit #1 on the Beatport Electro House chart and #4 on Beatport’s Top 100, and the corresponding Surge Remixes EP featuring the hit single of the same name with vocalist Wynter Gordon. He also saw huge radio success with this collaboration with Felix Cartal “The Fire” featuring Madame Buttons.
This summer Clockwork will take to the road, appearing at major festivals across the US and Canada including HARD Summer in Los Angeles, mainstage at Electric Zoo in New York and at Light in Las Vegas where he will be continuing his residency.
Within the scope of less than a year, Taylr Renee has collaborated with acts most aspiring artists can only dream of. Lending her vocal talent to Axwell, Tom Swoon, and Paris Blohm she has subsequently contributed to multiple Beatport #1’s with “I AM,” “Wings,” and “Left Behind.”
If you were one of the millions who couldn’t get Ivan Gough and Feenixpawl’s Grammy-nominated, colossal hit “In My Mind” out of your head, then get ready for their official follow-up to do the same. “Hear Me”featuring Christine Hoberg has arrived along with four massive remixes from Late Night Alumni, The Only, Beni and Blindsight.
“It was very exciting to work with the boys again,” Ivan Gough said. “In My Mind” was such a success– we wanted to recapture that vibe but keep it fresh, and I think we delivered that.”
Taking you on a musical adventure through contagious piano chords that build to an electrifying drop, “Hear Me” is designed to send you into a hands-in-the-air frenzy. With an addictive, progressive house beat and Hoberg’s stellar vocals, “Hear Me” lives up to the reputation the collaborators amassed after the release of “In My Mind.”
“We never really felt any pressure to recreate our success with “In My Mind,” we were just interested in writing something we all loved,” Feenixpawl said. “Our sounds have changed somewhat in the past couple of years but ultimately our goals are still the same; to create something that connects with people and that will live on long after the track comes out.”
Two remix packages cater to a diverse array of genres that are sure to suit any dance music lover’s taste. Released today, the first pack includes an electro house take by Australian production/DJ duo The Only–who gained fame for their track “Looking Back” which hit #1 on Australia’s dance chart. A deep house remix is delivered to you by Beni, an Australian DJ known for his remix of Flight Facilities “Foreign Language” and his EP “Love on the Run/Summer is Gone.” Late Night Alumni, a quartet that includes Ryan Raddon (Kaskade), gives us their take on the track with an indie dance/nu disco remix and German DJ Blindsight delivers a melodic drum and bass/chillstep version.
Remix pack two, which includes four additional remixes from BYNON, Drezo, Das Kapital and Dreamgoat, will be out exclusively on Beatport June 16 and on all other major digital retailers June 20. Make sure to check out the lyric video for the original mix below!
ABOUT IVAN GOUGH & FEENIXPAWL

** apologies due to the error in depicting the flight number. It is MH370. We are trying to fix this once our designer is up and hopefully sober.
Malaysian Airlines; Malaysia’s national flag carrier, which started operating back in 1947 under the extraction, Malayan Airlines had gone through a stunning revolution since its inception developing into the flagship that is Malaysian Airlines today. A remarkable achievement throughout the years saw the Arline achieving gold status with over 100 of groundbreaking awards, which includes World Best Cabin Crew, Asia’s Leading Airline, World’s Best Economy Class Award and much more. Having slated a substantial lost over the years, Malaysian Airline remains as the favourite carrier for travellers around the world.
However, the image was dreadfully tainted when an airplane bearing its symbol was lost over the South China Sea shortly after taking off from its hub at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Sepang. Flight Malaysia Airlines, MH370 bound to Beijing took off from KLIA at 12:41am (0041hrs) on 8 March 2014 was later reported to have lost contact with Subang Air Traffic Control around 2:40am. The Boeing777-200 aircraft, which was scheduled to land in Beijing at 6:30am on the same day has since been missing. The fate of the 227 passengers including foreign nationals (inc 2 infants) together with 12 crew members aboard the aircraft is currently unknown.
The first media statement from Malaysia Airlines was officially released at 7:30am followed by a few more consisting of nationalities, passengers manifest and others but nothing on what could have caused the aircraft to loose contact with the tower. As of 9 March 2014 and more than 12 hours since the aircraft gone missing, the cause of the incident, and the location of the missing flight is still unknown. Search and rescue efforts has since been deployed and carried out throughout the night with several countries including the United States, Japan, Philippines, and Singapore further aiding the Malaysian government in their quest to find the ill-fated aircraft.
Since the aircraft’s disappearance there has been much speculation on what could have possibly gone wrong and yet no conclusion has been achieved since Malaysia Airlines has refused to confirm any reports of the aircraft crashing in the South China Sea as opposed to the claims that has been made by the Vietnam officials. Terrorist attack has also been accounted as one of the many possibilities.
Reports of the plane safely landing in Nanning that first started to circulate the web after the announcement confirmed the lost of signal with the aircraft has since been denied as the plane did not make any landing at any nearby airports. Malaysian Transport Minister has urged the public to stop speculating and allow the officials to continue their search before any conclusion is made.
In China, it has been a very distressing situation for the loved ones as they wait for some positive news that is yet to come and considering the fact that more than 12 hours has past since then, the hope is slowly fading away. The world has united in prayers between the thinning hope while still wishing for some kind of miracle. The fact that two passengers onboard was using stolen passport has further raised concern about a possible sabotage. While the Malaysian authorities refused to indulge in any news until they can confirm that the worse has happened, the officials will continue the search effort until something could be found.
Meanwhile in Vietnam, two oil slick was detected in the sea consistent with the flight’s pattern, which is feared to belong to the Malaysian Airlines’ missing aircraft. However there has not been any signs of crashes or wreckage as off yet. Experts around the world gathers to shed some light over the aircraft that vanished from the radar shortly after taking off. The flight tracking images however shows the aircraft had gone astray from its route before totally vanishing from the radar.
