Roger Sanchez Interview
Roger Sanchez is not only the DJ's DJ but the producer's producer. Constructing his entire new CD Come With Me from scratch, with outside assistance, he proves his skills as engineer, producer, programmer, and songwriter. Inspired by the dance Mecca island of Ibiza, the CD has already spawned several club anthems, with many more to come. To experience him as a DJ, check out his recently released mixed compilation Release Yourself 5, his frequent podcasts and radio shows.

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.

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.
Paul Van Dyk Interview

G.B. Interview
The world of underground music brims with up-and-coming, undiscovered talent. Many producers get their start doing “unofficial” remixes (yam who anyone?) which later get picked up and released by a record label, thereby putting the producer on the map. DJ, artist and beat-maker, this 20 year-old boy wonder has in a relatively short time, to catch the eye of production veterans like King Britt and Daz-I-Kue.
Sasha - Fundacion NYC Interview
Sasha has always been at the forefront of innovation in the DJ community. Following up his critically acclaimed Involver album, Sasha reinvents himself again with his custom-made Maven controller. Starting May 28, he'll begin a national tour showing off his new mixing power.

Ben Watt Interview
Artist turned DJ - it almost sounds cliched, doesn't it? In the case of Ben Watt, the transition from Everything But the Girl to Buzzin' Fly is more of a logical artistic growth. The recent release of Buzzin' Fly Volume 3 is a testament to the music that Ben Watt continues to produces and find for the househeads of the world.
Francis Preve Interview
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.

Donna D’Cruz Interview
It's rare that you find a record label that matches its founder so exactly. Rasa Music is the vision of founder Donna D'Cruz, bringing sensuality, spirituality, and style to electronic music with compilations blending club and chillout with the influences of boutique labels like Hed Kandi or Hotel Costes. Known as a jetset DJ playing international parties for the fashion elite (Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci), Donna is also setting her own fashion trend with the signature Rasa Crystal DJ headphones.

Above and Beyond, the trio of Jonathan Grant, Tony McGuinness, and Paavo Siljamäki, do everything you can imagine in the electronic music world – produce, write, remix, DJ, and run a music label.

With the state of dance music in the United States, it seems like the perfect time to look back to a legend to help us focus on the future.

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.

Translating electronic music to a live stage performance is quite a challenge. With their new CD In Silico, Pendulum have fused drum & bass with their punk and metal background to create music that works as well in a stadium show as it does on the dancefloor. With the insane energy of their live performances, Pendulum have been dubbed by many as The Prodigy of the new millennium bringing together the rock crowd and the club crowd. Page 2.
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.

You've definitely seen her – as the cover girl for MAC cosmetics, on Swatch watches, in countless fashion ads, hosting events around the world, and the infamous video for Tiga. Working with producers Fatal Art Syndicate, Cazwell, and Larry Tee, she has compiled a remix EP as a teaser for her upcoming artist album. Warning: the electro is as sexy and spicy as she is.

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.
