Tom Swoon and Lush & Simon have teamed up to produce 'Ahead Of Us,' a gorgeous new tune due out March 10th on Ultra Music. The track is beautifully composed of soft violins and a gently strumming guitar underneath seductively raspy male vocals that tug directly on the heart strings as they sings of better days that are yet to come. When the beat finally hits, the melody washes over you with such powerful care-free happiness, the exhilarating rush will give you goosebumps.
Max Vangeli is a force to be reckoned with. Whether he’s climbing the dance charts with a signature remix of Ellie Goulding or Switchfoot, working with fellow DJs Tiesto or Steve Angello on a hot new club anthem, or jet setting around the globe from venue to venue, there’s always an elemental passion to every aspect of his persona. We recently had the chance to connect with Max via email to get some thoughts on his new single/collaboration with Danny Ray, “Grim”, which he just released January 27th on SIZE records, what kind of song inspires a remix & why he just can’t get enough of the road.
How did the collaboration with Danny Ray arise?
Danny has been a friend of mine for years and we finally just came up with an idea together and ran with it. It was a very smooth collaboration and I’m very happy with the outcome!
Due out January 20th, Rebel will mark the second release of 2014 on former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello's Size Records. AN21, a Size Records veteran with huge releases like 'Glow' and 'H8RS,' along with Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman, who made their way into the Size family after a phenomenal remix of AN21, Max Vangeli, and Tiesto's 'People Of The Night' featuring Lover Lover, have conspired to create a tried and true progressive house anthem of devastating proportions.
This was no typical Saturday in Central Park. The Upper East Side was about to get christened by rave kids of all kinds and most importantly, by 1/3 of the Swedish House Mafia, Mr. Steve Angello. He brought his expertise in doing what he does best to the Size Matters event and put on one of the most memorable EDM shows New York City had seen the entire summer.
Rumsey Playfield was home to the sold out, 'Size In The Park,' with Steve Angello headlining along with mates from his Size Records, Third Party, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, AN21 and Max Vangeli. Making their NYC debut, Third Party dropped a lot of their own tracks including, "Thank You," feat. Loleatta Holloway and their remix of The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, "Otherside." An impressive set to say the least, Sunnery and Ryan created an elaborate tone playing funky house tracks that no music lover could deny. They dropped classics like Joe Brunning's "Now Let Me See You Work," and the most refreshing bootleg of the whole set, Hardwell's "Spaceman" vs. Ultra Nate's "Free.” After, AN21 and Max Vangeli hit the stage shining with a set heavy on beats with original tracks like, “People Of The Night,” (feat.Tiesto) and "Fresh Start."
Boston plays hosts to a bevy of star-studded EDM acts in the coming months. Specifically, May & June offer up the likes of Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, and Laidback Luke (to name just a few)! With luscious tunes sweltering throughout the night, and the locales equally banging, the next few months are guaranteed to bring copious amounts of nocturnal wildness!
As is the nature of wickedly awesome fiestas, tix are scarce! The time is nigh to snag the goods, brace for mayhem, and rage volatile! May the coming months bring you plentiful shenanigans!
When: Tuesday, May 1st: 10pm-2am
Swedish House Mafia fans rejoice: Sebastian Ingrosso and special guests will be at The Pool at Harrah's in Atlantic City on President’s Day Weekend. As one part of Swedish House Mafia, Ingrosso is the man behind the ultimate summer anthem “Calling” with Alesso. Ingrosso also produced the “How Soon Is Now” with Dirty South, David Guetta and Julia McKnight, and the remix of “Jack You” with Steve Angello for Diddy and Felix. His remixes of MGMT’s “Kids” and Miike Snow’s “Silvia” also took the music scene by storm. The legendary artist has also worked with Kylie Minogue, Style of Eye, AN21, Max Vangeli, True Identity and Lune.
Arriving at Pacha NYC on Black Friday, the energy was evident before even walking through the doors. The venue was filled with partygoers all ready to dance off their Thanksgiving dinners and leftovers, at the prestigious New York City spot. Awaiting up and coming house DJ duo AN21 & Max Vangeli to headline the Black Friday event.
AN21(born Antoine Joseffson), the brother of Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello, has been working alongside Max Vangeli for the past year caught up with us before getting into the booth at Pacha to tell us a little bit more about themselves and their upcoming projects. Vangeli, named one of the "Top 5 DJs to watch in 2011" by the Top 100 DJ poll on DJMag.com, and AN21 have taken over clubs worldwide with remixes of Swedish House Mafia's Save the World as well as Pendulum's The Island. Both anticipating the gig, they gave the crowd one of the best sets in which I have seen them, if not the best. Feeling the vibes of the club rocking to the music, AN21 even attempted (and succeeded!) in crowd-surfing throughout Pacha's main floor! Definitely a night for the record books, as per usual, at Pacha NYC.
