This past Friday, the Killer Fro Tour took over the Grand Ballroom in Webster Hall, and it was incredible. As one of the most prominent venues in the New York City nightlife scene, Webster Hall is the ideal place to dance and sweat the night away, especially if you have a desire to see any of the best names in electronic music.
Upon arriving at the club, located in the East Village, it was a pleasant surprise to see that the lines outside were minimal and moving quickly, an ideal situation given the blistering cold of these long winter nights. Once the heat lamps hovering above the entrance started to work their magic though, thoughts of feeling frozen gave way to the warm fuzzy feeling that goes hand in hand with the sensation of heavy bass shaking everything and everyone around you. Once up the stairs and into the Grand Ballroom, it was only minutes to midnight before Candyland, surprisingly, came out on stage first.
It's coming for you! The Killer Fro Tour, a name that perfectly describes what co-headliners Kill Paris and Candyland are all about, is hitting Webster Hall this Friday, February 28th. DJ/producer duo Candyland, aka Ethan and Josie, have carved out their own unique space in the electronic dance music scene, almost as big as Josie's fro, thanks banging original tracks like 'Breathless,' and a handful of OG remixes for songs like Nicky Romero & Krewella's 'Legacy' to Daft Punk's 'One More Time.'
In celebration of announcing their upcoming and cleverly titled 'KILLER FRO' tour with Kill Paris, as well as a new residency at Marquee in Las Vegas, Ethan and Josie aka Candyland decided to give away a new track every day for the next five days for free. The first freebie, available today, is a real OG remix of the hauntingly beautiful Butch Clancy track, 'Russian Lullaby,' that lurks in the void between Dubstep, Drum & Bass, and Trap that Candyland always seems so comfortable in.

Known for its colossal roster of quality talent, the Circle Talent Agency kicked off Miami Music Week with a splash at their poolside showcase! Touting a star-studded lineup featuring Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, and Datsik, the showcase invited dubstep lovers to bask in the sun while watching their favorite artists flex their bass-heavy muscles. And although anchored by the agency’s superstar turntablists, it was rising stars Lucky Date and Carnage who truly stole the show(case).
We all know Beatport is infamous for their remix contests and If you're a regular visitor you may be familiar (and if you're not you should be!) with the name Candyland. Santa Monica natives, Ethan Davis and Josie Martin are the twosome that successfully won two Beatport Play remix contests in a row! With that said, many of their remixes come in the form of Dubstep but you can find other sounds here too.
