Let's hear it for the girls! Sassy electropop DJ duo, Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo are Icona Pop. They're basically taking over the world one remix at a time with their hit single "I Love It."
Formed in 2010, these Swedish sweethearts have made quite some noise starting with their first single "Manners." Since then, they have exploded onto the music scene with their latest Iconic EP and are planning to release a debut album in 2013 (which we seriously cannot wait for). But, in the meantime, you can enjoy the twelve remixes that were just released on Big Beat Records. Here are our faves, do you love them?
When a rare opportunity comes your way, the natural reaction is to take it right away. Well, when Eric Prydz comes to the states, especially New York City, it shouldn't even be a question but more a programmed reaction that you'll be in that crowd. An icon to fans both in the mainstream and underground scenes, Prydz has championed a level of success through his music and producing skills.
While we caught a Prydz appearance over the summer at Identity Festival and again at his short show at Beekman, fans who missed him there now have a second chance to see the sensational Swede play two shows at Roseland Ballroom on November 21st and 24th.

Ultra Music has just launched its newest video series titled "Above & Beyond the clouds...a personal journey through the white island." The footage takes dance music aficionados through the famed island of Ibiza during the hottest summer club season in the world.
The first in the series features Above & Beyond who look back on their cherished memories and remember how the island has influenced their sound and what makes it such a special place to celebrate a love of dance music. Opening with saying "Our roots are really... very much on this island. There's so much history we've been coming here for so many years now," it's clear that Ibiza serves as a heavenly place for just about everyone.
The year was 1967 when the world saw its first music festival. It was The Monterey International Pop Music Festival that took place over three days on June 16-18 in Monterey, California. The fest has become known as the first major American appearance of Jimi Hendrix and The Who. It put Janis Joplin on the map in the rock world and saw Otis Redding perform and break traditions. Monterey would shape the mold for future music festivals such as Woodstock in 1969 and every other music festival to come after. It's been years in the making, but the music festival continues to be ever evolving.
Often times it's hard to believe there was a time before our house music. When music festivals were one weekend and everyone jammed out in General Admission. Before it exploded and when it was just a small "underground thing." The entire genre has evolved over time taking on many different forms but it's an absolute must to go back to it's roots. From the disco days to the early 90s when house started making it's way over to the states. We've rounded up 8 songs that aren't exactly your hard hitting, bass-in-your-face, typical progressive house. These songs can be easily defined as the epitome of what house music really was.
1. Joachim Garraud- Are U Ready (Laidback Luke Remix)
2. Dirty South vs. Evermore- It's Too Late
