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.

Mitch Branson - Darkness of Pleasure CD Review
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.
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.

Wolfgang Gartner Interview - Interview with Wolfgang Gartner
Being a house record label that produces a constant buzz in the industry that it serves is quite a task these days. And Tweek'd Records out of Cliffside Park NJ is doing just that. Tweek'd Records started out in 2004 and they have built a small yet solid back catalogue of house music. Comprising four labels (Tweek'd Records, Tweek'd Tunes, Sexx-S Beats and Sonido Traxx), they are developing their own unique sound and reputation.
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.

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.

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.

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.

MCs performing live to hype the crowds during DJ sets are becoming the standard on the European scene and leading the charge is the lovely Miss Vika Kova. Based in Amsterdam, she has hyped crowds for everyone from Fedde Le Grand to Sven Vath – electro to techno to house – and everything in between.
