This just in: following news that AVICII will not be featured as Saturday's special guest at Ultra Music Fest, due to health reasons, we have learned that deadmau5 will take his place. The Ultra Music Festival family wishes AVICII a easy, and speedy recovery.
It is only a few days before the parties start for Miami Music Week, and the excitement is almost too much to bear. And for a good reason too; MMW hosts a whole lot of pool parties, boat cruises, and exclusive shows featuring the best names in electronic dance music, ending in the three day musical masterpiece that is Ultra Music Festival. Of course, not everyone gets to attend all of these wonderful gathering, or any at all for that matter, which is why UMF Radio will be broadcasting live on SiriusXM radio all throughout Miami Music Week.
Since then, he has opened up for Afrojack in New York City, performed at the Avicii Hotel in Miami, opened for Krewella, performed at Madison Square Garden, and across South East Asia. Check out his first single below and don't miss out on getting tickets to this event right here!
What: Reid Stefan at Eden
When: Saturday, March 8th, 10pm - 4am
Where: Eden, 1716 I St., NW, Washington, DC
Avicii just keeps breaking them records. Averaging 850,000 listens per day, "Wake Me Up" has officially become the most played song ever on Spotify. And this isn't the first time: back in 2013 the track was the most-tagged EDM song on Shazam, and also surpassed other artists as the fastest track to reach 100 million plays on Spotify.
Now, the Swedish musician's "Wake Me Up" takes the cake from previous record holder Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive." So far it's reached over 200 million streams (and keeps climbing). The most popular cities it seems, include Stockholm, London, New York, Madrid, Barcelona, and Los Angeles.
Both Avicii and David Guetta have been two of the biggest trailblazers in dance music over the last few years, headlining festivals, topping charts, and touring the world over. Not since the release of 'Sunshine' on Nothing But The Beat: Beatport Edition however, have these two collaborated on anything together, making news of David Guetta's remix of 'Addicted To You' a welcome surprise.
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Avicii drops the full music video for his track, 'Addicted To You.' Avicii's been successful with breaking the borders between genres as he creates intoxicating new tracks that doesn't quite fully encompass the 'EDM' genre. Despite this, he shows an enormous amount of maturity in his latest music.
'Addicted To You' features a contemporary 'Wild Wild West' scenario with two female bandits. The female vocalist on this track belts out a rich and dreamy tune, suiting the track title well. Watch the full music video below:
Take a listen to Diplo & Ookay's trap rework of Avicii's summer hit, 'You Make Me.' Released three days ago on SoundCloud by Diplo, the remix adds a nice dimension to the original track. It keeps many of the same elements from the original tune, only adding trapstyle drops to give it the Diplo & Ookay touch. Take a listen below!
1. Kanye West - New Slaves
2. Arcade Fire - Afterlife
The backlash surrounding Thicke's summer hit has nearly made people forget how big of a hit the record was. As unfortunate as some of the lyrics may have been to some, the record was a bonafide smash and you could not avoid the record if you tried during Summer 2013.
Ultra Music Festival 2014 is turning up the heat, as they have announced Phase One of the festival taking place March 28-30 in Miami.
