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.

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.

Kraak & Smaak - 'Plastic People'
The Netherlands have bestowed upon us yet another creative gift in the musical personas of the band Kraak & Smaak and their recently released second album entitled Plastic People. They are not two people as their name implies, but at least a trio consisting of Mark Kneppers, Oscar De Jong and Wim Plug who have concocted a blend of soulful electronica and beats – some of which would fit nicely back in the mid-1980s break dance craze.

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.

We had a chance to talk to Sander after his most recent US stop. He gives insight on the Everybody series, his use of the video mixing, the future of progressive house, and some off-topic items. Everybody loves Sander, for a reason.
