★ Sam Smith – I’m Not The Only One

Maybe you’re loved, maybe you’re searching, maybe you’re recovering–but we all love Sam Smith. “I’m Not the Only One” hit the high-charts after a video featuring two of TV’s faves, Glee‘s Dianna Agron and The Mindy Project‘s Chris Messina. His two-night stint this past weekend in the city sold out in minutes. Not bad at age 22…!

Breaking our little vow of silence to congratulate the king of pop house, Mr. Calvin Harris, on setting another record (after landing at the top of the Forbes’ rich DJ list…dayum), having been streamed over 1 billion times on Spotify.

That’s about 5 years worth of continuous listening to Calvin Harris.
Dayum.

14-06-19 deadmau5 awakens

The mau5 is back. Yesterday, Tuesday, Zimmerman released his grand opus: a 90-minute, two-CD, 25-track masterpiece showcasing his techno, electro, trap talents, and it instantly shot to the top of the charts (where it has since remained). And with a promised “16 trucks” worth of staging equipment for his forthcoming world tour, deadmau5 is truly right back on top.

★ The Cinematic Orchestra – To Build A Home

The Cinematic Orchestra has been making music since the late 90s, based on a strong foundation of catchy melodies played (seemingly) by a grand orchestra, and topped with delicately stimulating vocals. Good stuff.

Unless you were living under an EDM-proof rock, you heard about the passing of Paul Baumer, half the crowd-poppin’ Bingo Players DJ duo, late last year to cancer. After taking some time to grieve, his surviving half Maarten Hoogstrate has taken to the decks again to continue their dreams of making people dance everywhere. Check out this nostalgic yet bangin’ new track, Here for You…
