Our first playlist for New York Fashion Week 2014 consisted of an eclectic mix of jazzy tempos from the likes of Gramatik and pop favorites from Lady Gaga to Bruno Mars. This second playlist features a more sultry collection of sexy female--but not limited to--vocals riding deep alongside euphoric basslines.

This mix consists of old and fresh new tracks that will have you bumpin' to your playlist en vogue.
Every year, the Grammys can always be counted on to be jam packed with some of the most spectacular performances and surprising award wins of the year, and 2014's show was nothing short of just that. This year, the 56th annual Grammy Awards proved to be a celebration of music past, present, and future, with host LL Cool J guiding the night through it's incredibly diverse music collaborations and dynamic performances. It was only right, then, for the Queen B herself, Beyonce, and music mogul husband Jay Z to start the show off right with a slick and sexy performance of 'Drunk In Love' that made sure everybody was going to "be all night."
2013 is coming to a near finish, which means it's time to reflect on the year's most exciting Artists and DJs. The rise of EDM is no secret and not to be overrated. With an abundance of new talent, artists recreating their sound, and stellar festival sets that stood out from the rest, the EDM scene looks like it's constantly generating exciting buzz all throughout the year. Here's our pick of the Top 20 DJs who's made a great impression in the electronic music scene:
It's no secret that Robbert van de Corput, better recognized as, Hardwell, was crowned DJ Mag's #1 DJ. In 2011, he entered the Top 100 list at #24, quickly rising the ranks to #1 in a matter of only two years. There's a reason why he's been voted the top DJ, just look at the views on all his major festival sets on Youtube. His Tomorrowland set garnered 16+ million views while his Ultra set is at 17+ million views. The numbers certainly speak for themselves. At only 25 years old, there's no slowing down this festival tycoon anytime soon!
Calling all Clockwork fans- today marks the day when he releases his new remix of Kaskade & Project 46's melodic house tune, "Last Chance." When Henry Steinway aka Clockwork aka RL Grime, performs under the moniker Clockwork, one can expect progressive house tracks with funky and heavy bass drops. His latest remix delivers just that. Clockwork has been having a prolific year while performing for major festivals like Ultra Music Festival and EDC Las Vegas. His latest remix debuted back when he performed at EDC Vegas and now it's on Soundcloud for devoted music fans. You can buy the track on Beatport here.
The quartet producer/deejay group, Dirtyphonics, have been known for making some fire remixes to several big name artist tracks. This time they take Kaskade and Project 46's melodic track, "Last Chance" and give it a couple extra pounds. Now with some dub synths and heavy bass this song now has a new level of intensity. You can't not love the original version of this track, but this is definitely a sick remix that will please the head-bangers out there.
