HI-LO – Ooh La La


Oliver Heldens’ alias, HI-LO, announces a new single, “Ooh La La,” due out on Monday, December 7th via Heldeep Records.

Hardwell Aims To Set Guinness World Record By Opening Personal Guest List To 125,000 Fans, Receives His Own Action Figure


On Sunday, Nov 8, DJ Hardwell opened up the bookings for the World’s Biggest Guest List. Over 125,000 fans had pre-registered to take part in the massive opening, knowing that only a limited number would secure a free spot on the Dutch dance titan’s personal guest list. Not wanting to miss their chance to be a part of one of the biggest dance music events to ever happen on the planet, fans from around the world sat at their computers, fingers poised on the enter button. So many fans tried to enter the guest list that the overwhelming demand crashed the BookMyShow servers.

BookMyShow is India’s biggest online movie and events ticketing brand. As surprised by anyone at the crash, they worked through the night to rectify the system, while the fans eagerly awaited news. Ticketing re-opened the next day at noon, and the fans logged on in mass.

The World’s Biggest Guest List marks the first time that industry stalwarts across the globe are joining hands to make a positive social difference in the world. Together, Hardwell, the current World #2 DJ, Anna Knaup from one of Holland’s leading DJ and Management Agencies, and Shailendra Singh, India’s Entertainment Maverick and Philanthropist – have set a goal of pulling 3,000 children out of poverty by donating the proceeds of the event to the Magic Bus program.

In addition to this tremendous announcement, Hardwell became one of the first DJs, along with Armin van Buuren, to become immortalized with his very own action figure. Hardwell joins the likes of KISS, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and more legendary artists, to have their own figurine designed after them. With the holiday seasons coming up, the Hardwell action figure is the perfect gift for a dance music fan, and you can get yours here.

Hot off the heels of their extremely successful fall festival that celebrated the three year anniversary of the formation of Desert Hearts, our favorite group of ragtag DJs-turned-festival promoters are taking their illustrious brand on the road for an expanded City Hearts tour. Earlier this summer, the Desert Hearts crew started to spread their ethos of house, techno, and love across the country with City Hearts stops in some of the major dance hotspots of the country, and now, they’re growing their brand internationally with a massive 13-stop City Hearts tour that has stops in the US and Canada. The highlight of the City Hearts tour is the Mayan Hearts party, which will take place in the beautiful jungles of Tulum, Mexico, and feature guests like Atish, Sabo, and more, for a mini-festival to ring in 2016.

In addition to the exciting announcement of the City Hearts tour, Desert Hearts head honcho, Mikey Lion, has just released his Into the Jungle EP with festival mainstay, Sabo. The four track EP is the embodiment of the Desert Hearts sound, as the title track of the EP features deep grooves and tribalistic drum patterns, while “Sally” is a more traditional four-to-the-floor, tech house anthem.

Budo – An Elderly Woman Named Jeff


Budo is a name that you may have seen around the music industry over the past couple of months if you were paying close attention. Macklemore’s recently released single “Downtown” that charted #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and that record was co-produced by Budo! Before that he worked with revolutionary underground hip-hop record label Rhymesayers, and now he’s focusing on solo work. Last week he dropped an experimental cut titled “An Elderly Woman Named Jeff” that has a much more trippy sound design compared to his prior work, but it is a very enticing sound to say the least. While it’s hard to put my finger on what this song exactly reminds me of, I can easily say it’s one of the most interesting releases I’ve checked out in a while. Do yourself a favor and listen to “An Elderly Woman Named Jeff” you won’t regret it.

Troubles were the last thing in my mind when this track popped on my headphones the other day. “Troubles” is an outstanding release that is going to do amazing things for the producer Imad Royal. It’s simple but the builds and vocal melodies have so much feel at the same time. Enjoy.
