WEEKEND PICKS
Weekend Pick: DVBBS at Ultrabar/Chroma


DVBBS (pronounced “dubs”), a duo from Toronto, have made more certified club bangers than you can imagine. The electro/house collective boasts a unique style and is the brains behind hits such as “TSUNAMI." Their EP, “Initio,” was released a little more than two years ago and continues to inspire up-and-coming artists on the scene.

The two members, brothers Alex and Chris Andre, have dabbled in reggae, dubstep, house, and electronic, and their live sets bring their colorful and creative sound to life. Having performed with the greats, including Tiesto, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, and Deadmau5, their capabilities behind the turntables are at an all-time high and not to be passed up.

Steve Aoki Charitable Fund Makes Big Donations To Major Health And Research Organizations

Throwing cakes at fans with one hand and donating money to charity with the other, Steve Aoki values his philanthropic work just as much as he does his music.

Event Preview: Steve Aoki At HQ Nightclub

Valentine's Day, or Single Awareness Day, can be amped up to the next level with your homeboy, Steve Aoki. He'll be playing at HQ nightclub located within the Revel hotel in Atlantic City to 'Aokify' your soul on February 14th, 2014. What does being Aokified entail? A cool, big room set with all the sickest tracks, possibly crowd surfing (a huge possibly, considering it's within a club venue) and someone lucky gets to go home with the credibility to say that he or she have been caked by Steve Aoki, himself.

No matter how predictable a Steve Aoki show might be, you just never know. As the head honcho behind Dim Mak Records, Steve Aoki's explosive style will have you forget your worries for the night. Come in your dopest club attire to celebrate Valentine's Day with Steve Aoki and your loved ones.

Listen to Steve Aoki & Autoerotique vs, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike 'Feedback'

One might assume that combining the crazy, electro house intensity of Steve Aoki with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike's big room bravado and Autoerotique's uncontainable bass would result in the ear-piercing sound of incoherent madness, but you'd be wrong. The sound you hear isn't painful feedback but instead, a perfectly blended aural anthem of mind-and-speaker-blowing proportions.
