What Is Progressive and Who Are the Best...
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.

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 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.

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.

There's more to the life of a superstar DJ than traveling the globe via first class planes and bedding supermodels; the truly dedicated ones go to the grassroots and actually experience the places they perform. With his new CD/DVD set Passport USA, Ferry Corsten gives you a firsthand view of his recent US bus tour with a slamming set of music he played and film coverage of life on the road. In addition to going from Punk to Junk, he's also gone high style with his own fashion line.
