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.
Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" has taken over radio stations, clubs, and just about anywhere else music plays. But have you heard the funky remix by DJ/producer Richie Beretta and Major Lazer's Jillionaire? We know the Queen would think the track is flawless. Check out the six minutes of brilliance below!
After weeks of promo tweets and instagram posts, Major Lazer has finally released their Apocalypse Soon EP and you need to hear it as soon as possible. The group consisting of Diplo, Walshy Fire, and Jillionaire have risen to become one of EDM's hottest acts this past year and they are only continuing to build up hype around their name with the release of this EP. The project feautres from some of noticable names like Pharrell Williams to Sean Paul, who are utilized nicely on their respective tracks. Each song is filled with high energy and strong beats whice are sure to get any party bumping as soon as you hit play.
From his love of pizza to Lindsay Lohan on the decks, Jillionaire seems like the type of chill guy that everyone would want to work in the studio with. Ordering a ton of pizza while imagining dolphins on the horizons are just some of the quirky facts that were revealed in this interview. Get to know more about one-third of Major Lazer's Jillionaire by watching the interview below:
If 'Express Yourself' instigator and Major Lazer group member Diplo is the leader of this upside down, twerkin' it on a handstand revolution, then the four names chosen for the 'Revolution' (Remixes) are his second's in command. Out now via Mad Decent, each of the included remixes adds to and improves the dynamic stadium sound of the original, all the while making sure to maintain the lofty vocal work Kai has laid out as the guiding voice of the title track to Diplo's previously released Revolution EP.
Major Lazer front man, Diplo ,took to Twitter recently to announce the upcoming release of their next EP. There is no confirmed title or date to it yet, but it has been confirmed that some big names will be featured on this project. Pharrell - the man who was somehow a part of every big hit in 2013 will be on there, as well as dancehall reggae phenoms Sean Paul and Elephant Man will be part of it as well. I told you guys before, Diplo is a force not to be reckoned with. He took over 2013, and is now in preparation to takeover 2014 as well. Check out his two hour 2013 round up mix, and be alert for some new fire from Major Lazer out soon.— Kim K Mutumbo (@diplo) January 4, 2014
