Let’s be honest, New Year’s Eve can be very overwhelming. There are endless pressures and options that make it difficult to decide how to celebrate. For those on the West Coast who have chosen to take their New Year’s Eve celebrations to Lake Tahoe in California for SnowGlobe, get ready for three days packed with a stellar lineup, amazing people, and the beauty of the outdoors.
SnowGlobe recently announced the schedule for the three day festival, and it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss out on. The first day sees performances from Gramatik, Kastle, Tiesto, Justin Martin and many more. If the first day’s lineup wasn’t enough, day two is stacked with performances from Kill Paris, Zeds Dead, Claude Vonstroke, and Kaskade. New Year’s Eve will feature Dillon Francis, Snoop Dogg/Lion, Treasure Fingers, Cashmere Cat, and will ring in 2014 with Cut Copy. To see the full schedule, click here.

Los Angeles-based duo, Bixel Boys, have been working at a feverish pace as of late. Only two and a half months after releasing their first EP, Black December, on Australian imprint Sweat It Out, the two have found a new home at Nervous Records. Earlier today, the boys dropped their second EP to close out 2013 strong- Bring It On. The two-track EP consists of 11 minutes of energy, leading off with the marching band-inspired title track "Bring It On," followed by the heartstopping B-side, 'CPR,' which features EKG sound effects over wicked metallic synths and heavy bass. The effort is only a taste of releases to come for Bixel Boys as they prepare for 2014. Check out the EP below via Soundcloud. Click here to purchase.
It's that time of the year again- the Grammys have finally announced the 2014 nominees for its 56th annual awards ceremony, which will air live on January 26th. To no surprise, but very much deserved, Daft Punk have scored four nominations in the following categories: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Dance/Electronica Album.
Having already won six Grammys, Skrillex has stepped aside to allow artists such as Disclosure, Pretty Lights, Duke Dumont, and Armin van Buuren a shot at winning the prestigious award. 2014 will also see the return of past nominees Calvin Harris and Kaskade, who will be at heads with one another in both "dance" categories.
“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, AYAH IS IN THE BUILDING! I REPEAT, AYAH IS IN THE BUILDING!” Those were the last words spoken as the crowd began to roar, and Ayah Marar took the stage at Long Island’s Aura Nightclub this past Saturday night. The UK’s “Queen of Bass” was on the last stop of her US tour, when she dazzled club goers with a short set that started in the wee hours of the morning; and boy, did she revive the party!

We first saw New World Punx opening for Armin van Buuren at their debut arena show: A State Of Trance 600 at Madison Square Garden (listen here). Composed of trance titans Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz, the duo began collaborating after playing some back-to-back sets at previous shows. When we heard they were on tour, this time as headliners, we leapt at the chance to witness their wizardry once again, this time at the historic (and, unfortunately, soon-to-be-closing) Roseland Ballroom. The show took place this past Saturday, November 23, and featured an incredible four hour set of lush sonic textures, soaring angelic vocals, and hard throbbing beats delivered straight to our eardrums from the power pair.
