What is progressive? Like the way some people define obscenity, you know it when you hear it. Progressive refers more to structure than genre in the way the music builds up in layers leading often to epic tracks.

Tiesto Interview
Tiesto - one name means so much. A unique vision of trance music that has conquered the world. Topping the DJ list for three years, playing the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games, and selling out stadiums; Tiesto live is an amazing experience. At the Mansion in Miami, Tiësto rocked the crowd for a non-stop set that has already become the stuff of legend. Magnetic visuals, creative performance artists and a stunning vocal performance by Jes completed the scene for a magical evening.
Traktor DJ Studio
As a singer/songwriter/dance artist just getting my feet wet in DJing, it's an interesting time to throw myself in the mix. Just as CDs were the new vinyl, mp3 files are establishing themselves as the new CD. I'll save the debate for another day, but it's safe to say that as a novice DJ, the thought of simply grabbing my laptop and external hard drive instead of cases and cases of CDs was very tempting.

Making the move from writing to DJing and producing may seem like an odd transition, but when you consider the career arcs of Dave Dresden, Bill Coleman, and Joe Bermudez, it starts to make more sense. As contributing editor for Keyboard magazine and writer of three books, Francis Preve covers the latest technologies. As a sound designer for Korg and Ableton, he creates the sounds that other producers use. As a producer, he has worked with circuit Roland Belmares and commercial Joe Bermudez.

Ask the DJ - Unknown DJ
I am the leading gay DJ at a large gay club in the southeast. My dance floor is always full (that's 300 to 400 people at a time). My problem is that no one really knows who I am. The club I DJ at does not put my name in any of its advertisements; they put everyone else in their ads but me.

Lady Gaga - 'The Fame'
Lady Gaga crept up on the modern music scene much like a stealthy predator, sure of its prey's inability to sense or to predict it. She let herself be seen a few times as an unassuming and docile beast, something to be comfortable around. She even let herself be heard, her calls and cries as far from threatening as possible.

Vestax VCM-100 USB Midi Audio Controller Review
They say everything gets better with age, and DJing is no exception. I can remember the days of lugging around crates of records weighing 50 pounds each. Of course I was in better shape then. Nowadays, the older and wiser me carries an all-in-one system comprising of a laptop, a USB MIDI controller and a pair of headphones altogether weighing less than 10 pounds. Wonder how that's possible? Let me introduce you to the VCM-100 from Vestax.
Alex Gold
How many people can claim to have worked with Prince, Bryan Adams, Chuck D, Phil Oakey (Human League), and Maire Brennan (Clannad) to produce wonderful dance music? Launching the seminal UK dance label Xtravaganza, Alex Gold has been involved with over 55 top 40 hits while maintaining DJ residencies around the world. The label, which launched the careers of Chicane, Agnelli & Nelson, and several other major dance artists, mysteriously fell silent in 2002 when Alex suffered a tragic accident.
