As stated earlier, this guy knows how to mix. Just as he always does, Luke brought his A-game to the decks. He threw on a variety of tracks from Martin Garrix's latest single, "Proxy,” to Calvin Harris' radio smash, "Thinking About You,” and even a remix of Kanye West's "All Of The Lights.” There were moments where he would play the best 30 seconds of several songs back-to-back, blending them so perfectly into each other that you wouldn't have even noticed if you weren't listening closely. His ability to keep the crowd on their toes was phenomenal - you truly never knew what he was about to play next. It all seemed so easy for Laidback Luke, but the crowd was still in awe with every transition and drop.
Sandro Silva & Quintino have brought the Christmas gifts out early by releasing a bootleg version of their single, 'Epic' re-done by Just Fine & Atik. The record is great because it does not aim to drastically alter the original version of the record, and by making subtle changes, Just Fine & Atik elevate the record. Don't miss out on you free copy of the single here.

Once upon a time, in the far away kingdom of the Netherlands, there lived a boy named Joel who grew up to be the man we know today, Oliver Twizt.

After having just bought a brand-spanking new gold watch, Sandro Silva came to DC along with Oliver Twizt, in support of their Mixmash Records fall tour. We could tell by the look on his face when he first met him how excited he was to be back in the district, spinning at Ultrabar for his first time. As Oliver performed downstairs, we spoke to Sandro before his set to hear about his new track, "Puna," (see below) in addition to the highlights of his tour and the significance of choosing the right record label. But he also told us the story behind a few of his tattoos and his relationship with Oliver. Read on to see what he had to say, and be sure to check out our review of their set.
