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.

The endless tide of novel social media trends has most young people with more social apps than actual friends. What if that boundless networking energy could be harnessed to achieve something truly meaningful? That's what Evin Schwartz is trying to do with his new company Wondr.
Wondr is a social network that aims to connect twenty-somethings and the nonprofit organizations that might interest them, and also give them the chance to participate in a unique charitable raffle system.
The first raffle prize will give one lucky fan a unique Vegas vacation where you and a friend can get backstage and meet Tiësto before his performance at Hakkasan Nightclub on June 20th. The prize includes a comped round-trip flight and hotel stay, so you can relax and enjoy the exclusive VIP experience.
If nothing else, the one thing you always can count on from every artist on Tiesto's Musical Freedom label is that when they party, they do what they want, which means that the Brite Nites one-year anniversary is going to be 'Maximal Crazy.' Advanced tickets for this one-time special event are available online now starting at $40, but with this much hype and that insane lineup, the sell-out risk is high.

Project 46 at Dream Highbar
Reporting by Michael Poselski
Project 46 and Digital Lab set the perfect pool party vibe with an intimate performance at the Highbar, located on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel. Highbar resembled an oasis with daybeds and palm trees surrounding the sparkling swimming pool. Twenty-four stories high, the location offered a breathtaking 360 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and the electric cityscape of South Beach. The nearby ocean generated a cool tropical breeze that made the warmth of the humidity a delight.
Patrons relaxed poolside and sipped their favorite drinks as Digital Lab took to the turntables. The proclaimed ‘sound scientist’ manifested the chill pool-party groove with tracks like Daft Punk’s “909 Revolution” and Mark Knight’s “Your Love.” As the party started to heat up, he turned up the energy and got the crowd moving with bangers like A-Trak’s remix of “Heads Will Roll” and Swedish House Mafia’s “Leave the World Behind.” Canadian powerhouse duo, Project 46, took over seamlessly and transitioned into an even happier and uplifting mood dropping progressive house tracks like Avicii’s “We Are Your Friends” and their very own collab with Kaskade, “Last Chance.” The party reached its climax as the sun finally tore through the dark clouds and the attendees reveled in the intoxicating bliss of the atmosphere. This party epitomized what Miami Music Week is all about, it was truly a special experience to see DJ Mag Top 100 rated artists play a tailored set in such a pleasant and intimate environment.
It is only a few days before the parties start for Miami Music Week, and the excitement is almost too much to bear. And for a good reason too; MMW hosts a whole lot of pool parties, boat cruises, and exclusive shows featuring the best names in electronic dance music, ending in the three day musical masterpiece that is Ultra Music Festival. Of course, not everyone gets to attend all of these wonderful gathering, or any at all for that matter, which is why UMF Radio will be broadcasting live on SiriusXM radio all throughout Miami Music Week.
If you follow electronic music in any way, then you have to have heard of Holy Ship. Countless amounts of pictures and videos of the event have been posted all over social media platforms since it set sail in January, featuring electronic music household names like Skrillex, Diplo, Disclosure, A-Trak, Zedd, Tiesto, Laidback Luke and even Pharrell. Basically, it was every raver's paradise.
Now, two months later, we have been gifted with a recap video that covers the entire 3 day event. Watch the video above to witness what really went down on the now iconic Holy Ship.
On February 28th the legendary Tiesto will begin his DJ residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas, and with a little help from PixMob, the show will offer a whole new experience. Not only will a light show be presented on a screen behind the famed DJ, there will also be one in the crowd. How is this possible?
PixMob has crafted a LED bracelet that will allow fans to generate wireless video effects just by sporting them on their wrists. Using infrared to send instructions wirelessly to pixels worn by members of the audience, the technology of PixMob will bring a rainbow of color upon the crowd. Each audience member will be given a bracelet upon arrival, allowing lighting directors to produce a light show on a whole new canvas, as they change the colors of every single bracelet from their computers. The light show will be in sync with the music giving the crowd a whole new visual element to party to.
