Since he began his journey into the techno world in the late 1980’s by playing local clubs around England, Danny Howells has been a name associated with progressive house music. He bought his first DJ decks in 1991 and began to experiment with production in the mid 90’s before attracting a record deal with Jackpot in 1997, on which he released his first big hit a remix of React 2 Rythym’s “Intoxication”. Playing his first gig outside the UK, Howells gained not only a huge fan base in the Netherlands, but an opportunity with ID&T to release his 1998 debut mix album, Nightlife Report 1: Mick Boskamp Presents Danny Howells.
Tiesto just posted this throwback photo of him with the very talented, Danny Avila. It's nice to see that a legend like Tiesto still supports his fellow peers while never forgetting to show his personable side to fans on his social media. Just goes to show that these superstars are at the top level due to their sense of being grounded and humble in their success.
We remember Sunday, May 20th of 2012 very clearly. It was the last day of EDC NY, and we were at the circuitGROUNDS enjoying the last remaining seconds of Bassjackers' set. Then a very wonderful thing happened; Quintino took the stage and everyone, and we mean, everyone, in the crowd started roaring and stomping in unison. The effect of Quintino's opener, his hit single "Epic," had spoken to the crowd and now the crowd just couldn't get enough.
Well, that was my personal anecdote of the first time we heard Quintino live, and now he is an unstoppable force in the industry.

In light of his third "Pop Up" compilation, Perez Hilton rendezvoused with fans and pop enthusiasts at Webster Hall for a performance by Betty Who, and surprise guests, Savoir Adore and Nina Sky. The event began promptly as guests mingled with a Miley Cyrus printed body-suit clad Perez and a bubbly Betty Who. Delicious Cupcakes were up for grabs and "DNA" Monster headphones were on display. Savoir Adore filled The Marlin Room with a whimsical & rhythmic setlist followed by an energetic DJ set by Nina Sky. Dynamic rising pop star, Betty Who, ended the night with two new songs, "High Society", "Right Here" and the hit single "Somebody loves you."
“LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, AYAH IS IN THE BUILDING! I REPEAT, AYAH IS IN THE BUILDING!” Those were the last words spoken as the crowd began to roar, and Ayah Marar took the stage at Long Island’s Aura Nightclub this past Saturday night. The UK’s “Queen of Bass” was on the last stop of her US tour, when she dazzled club goers with a short set that started in the wee hours of the morning; and boy, did she revive the party!
What's the story behind your name?
