This past weekend, Florida hosted the Damage Control Tour as it hit Miami, Gainesville, and Tampa. Mat Zo, along with support from Norin & Rad, delivered quite a performance, and were lucky enough to witness their takeover in Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators. Proving that they can handle any college crowd, the three held nothing back as they took control of Simon’s Nightclub, which has also seen recent performances from Bro Safari, David Avila, Hook N Sling, and Sound Remedy.
Loyal W&W fans may have already heard their Mainstage ID (episode 172), which is their first release on their new label 6K Music. But for those of you who have yet to indulge, here’s a preview of their latest track. The duo have been on our radar for a while now, and we're always excited to hear that they've come out with new tunes. Of course, the preview ends just as it begins to get exciting, but we think it's safe to say that this is going to blow up pretty fast. It's uplifting, fresh, and melodious- a unique set of sounds that only W&W has been able to accomplish.
You may or may not have known that Walden will soon begin his adventures with Morgan Page as a supporting act on the MPP3D Tour across America (see video below). His newest release, "First Day," was played on Hardwell On Air and premired on Pete Tong's radio show, BBC 1 Radio, and he is clearly gaining the attention of some of the most influential artists in the scene.

Read on to see what he had to say about his latest single and touring with Morgan!
At 10 am Sunday morning we couldn’t tell whether our phones were ringing or our alarms was going off, until we groggily looked over at the screen and realized that someone was actually calling. The first words we heard were, “So guess what,” but in a rather monotone voice. Unprepared for the actual news, we were hopeful that something exciting might have happened. But, no, that really was not the case. “Ezoo is cancelled,” she said. Having been awoken by this information all in one blow, we thought it was a joke, or maybe a dream. Again, no. We couldn't exactly wrap our head around it, nor could anyone else.
From Madrid to Mumbai, cities around the globe are still buzzing in the wake of Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance 600 World Tour. Having touched down on ten of its twelve world-wide destinations, the expedition lowered the landing gear last week in preparation for its final two shows. In top form, they came fully equipped with all the makings to celebrate the 600th incarnation of Armin's famed A State of Trance Radio Show.
It’s only been a few days since WMC came to a close but for NYC we’re ready for another dose of music madness—this time with W&W at Madison Square Garden and Best Buy Theater! The Dutch duo is joining Armin van Buuren's March 30th ASOT 600 show at MSG and after will play their own (and biggest!) show at Best Buy Theater, which they managed to completely sell out! But no worries. W&W fans can check them out when they return for a string of dates at the end of April.
Brooklyn artist, Mike Perry’s recent endeavor, Wondering Around Watching (WAW) IS A 7k square foot creative wonderland nestled away amidst rows of former industrial spaces lining Dean St. in Crown Heights.
Conceived and designed by Perry, WAW doubles as both a free exhibition space and community free space for life-long art making. WAW is a revolutionary new concept in the way an art space interacts with the community. Eschewing a typical NYC gallery opening process Perry began with a concept that everything had to be community-oriented and free ...free entry, free refreshments, free classes, free workshops, free concerts, and all of it had to be available to people of all ages and abilities. After several months of preparation WAW opened on September 15th with over 500 people in attendance. Several successful community workshops followed the opening of the space and their second full exhibit titled Happy Accidents will be opening this Saturday, October 6th at 6pm.
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
