“I got one more shot at the goal/Straight from my soul/I’m in control,” sings Grammy winner and reggae legend Jimmy Cliff on his new album, Rebirth. The music icon will appear at the Howard Theater for one night only, performing music from this latest record as well as all of the hits. Doors 6PM, Show 9PM.
Artists to watch, Lush & Simon, have recently come out with a new bootleg of Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash’s (feat. John Martin) “Reload,” and have given us the track for all of our readers’ listening needs. While similar to its original version, Lush & Simon’s bootleg contains long buildups and progressive synths. Within no time, it has been supported by the likes of Tiesto, Bingo Players, Gareth Emery, Carnage, and others.
The duo are inspired by music from The Doors, The Beatles, Elvis Presley and many others. Inside EDM, their main inspirations right now are Hardwell, Tiesto, Sick Individuals, DubVision, Dyro, and
legends like Daft Punk and Justice.
There is something about music videos that makes the music experience a little more complete. Sometimes the videos can be completely horrible and actually leave a bitter feeling that can also effect the actual attraction of the original song, while other times they can be in a perfect harmony with its audio counterpart giving the viewer much more gratification towards the art of the piece. Either way, both music and videos are both created for the same purpose, to entertain the masses.
The highly-anticipated video for Sebastian Ingrosso’s song “Reload,” premiered just a few days ago with fans praising the visual adventure of this summer smash hit. The video is directed by Canadian filmmaker Jodeb (aka Jonathan Desbiens) who has worked with other artist such as Zedd and the Deftones. Its high cinematic quality actually makes it hard to believe that it’s just a music video and not a clip from HBO’s Game of Thrones. It contains a lot of interesting aspects with a huge dragon and a man going through different obstacles to find his lover.
Sebastian Ingrosso doesn’t need an introduction. The 30-year old Swedish DJ and producer has seen a great amount of success in his past few years behind the turntables and in the studio. He is the head of his own record company, Refune, and was a third of the wildly famous super-group Swedish House Mafia that performed their last show together on March 24, 2013. He recently dropped his new club anthem “Reload,” on May 14th and can be purchased on iTunes, here.
The newest creation in the city’s EDM explosion is brand new superclub Light, a Cirque du Soleil-inspired venue inside Mandalay Bay Hotel. Opening April 26th, Light will provide attendees with state-of-the-art interactive productions. And who better to announce a residency at this larger-than-life nightclub than dynamic duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike?
Last year, when Swedish House Mafia brought their infamous Masquerade Motel party to Miami Music Week, it resulted in what could easily be dubbed a "mini music festival." Mostly because their were about 10,000 fans in attendance at Miami's Grand Central Park.
On March 8th and 9th, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Steve Angello are bringing the highly anticiapted show to LA's Historic Park. Their first show comes with Alesso, Otto Knows, Mat Zo and Third Party on the main stage and Nero, Sub Focus, Clockwork and Monsta to The Marquee Stage. On the 9th, The Swedes will be joined again on the main stage with Alesso as well as Zedd, AN21 & Max Vangeli and No ID. Sub Focus, Style of Eye, Clockwork and Monsta will be holding it down at the Bass Arena.
“Make no mistake, we will come back.”
There may be no antidote for this stomach-churning feeling, but all hope is not lost - the DJs will continue their collaboration throughout the year’s scheduled tours.
