It's only shaping up to be a really good year for 20-year-old, Sandro Silva. His latest banger “Let Go Tonight (feat. Jack Miz)” has surfed smoothly on the music waves and Sandro has got even more up his sleeve. With that said, a brand new set of remixes for “Let Go Tonight” (out February 19 on Ultra Music) are out and on top of that is the announcment of Sandro's biggest North American tour to date.
You don't have to be a techno junkie to love Beltek's brand new single 'Eric Goes To Disco," which is easily one of the standout tracks on Toolroom Records Miami 2013 compilation CD. It's everything a tech house track comes equipped with along with a little late-90's inspiration from Mr. Oizo's hit "Flat Beat."
Just in time for WMC, MMW, and Ultra, “Eric Goes To Disco” is a perfect fit for those after hour sets on any given Miami night. Beltek did a number with this and once blared through any speakers...you'll be shuffling all night long. There's more to come from Beltek too! He recently announced that his next track will be a collab with Grammy nominated producer Morgan Page.
At just 17-years-old, Danny Avila is pretty much killing the game. His journey began just five years ago when he was making his way into the clubs in his native Spain and it was after watching the power and passion of artists like David Guetta and Afrojack was when Avila knew what he wanted to do.
The years fly by and it's 2012 which proved to be a very promising year for Danny Avila. He earned not one, but three residencies in Ibizia playing 15 shows alongside Tiesto at the famed Pacha Ibiza. The young buck also released his debut single 'Breaking Your Fall' on Big Beat Records in October and became the youngest ever talent to broadcast his 'Ready To Jump' show in a prime time slot on SiriusXM radio.
