Los Angeles’ world-class producer/DJ, Deorro, releases the official music video for his collaboration with Chris Brown, “Five More Hours,” via Ultra Music. Earlier this year, this PandaFunk executive’s original “Five Hours,” which has amassed over 48 million streams on Spotify, and over 32 million streams on YouTube, saw a revitalization as “Five More Hours,” featuring the megastar, Chris Brown, on vocals. Now, the latest rendition of Deorro’s biggest hit to date is getting a proper visual treatment.
Premiered by Rolling Stone, Deorro’s “Five More Hours” video shows Chris Brown on his way to Coachella, but his car breaks down. Shortly after, Deorro comes to the rescue in a school bus filled to the brim with ravers. Chris Brown hops aboard, gets the party started with the soundtrack of “Five More Hours,” and they all make their way to their final destination.
Following his return behind the decks during a brief stint in Miami in March, a pair of outstanding performances at Coachella, and the release of this video, Deorro is expected to unveil new music as the year moves forward.

With the second edition of Mysteryland USA around the corner, there’s a lot to think about and a lot to plan. Over the course of two days, the festival will be home to over 100 artists, including headliners like Dillon Francis, Kygo, and Diplo, as well as up-and-coming acts like Sweater Beats, Anna Lunoe, and Giraffage, spread across six stages. With such an extensive lineup, schedule conflicts are sure to occur, and if you’ve been to a multi-day festival like Mysteryland, then you know that they are an unnecessary source of anxiety as you try and plan out who you’re going to see.
In a new series leading up to Mysteryland, we’ve decided to shine a spotlight on an artist from each stage that we consider a “must-see.” Whether it be because of a brand new album on the way, the introduction of a new live show, or just a great DJ set, these artists know how to bring it while they are on stage.
This week’s Main Stage Spotlight is the Frenchman, Madeon.
Louis Vivet is back with another stellar remix to add to their budding discography. This time, they have enshrouded Phoebe Ryan’s gorgeous ‘Dead’ in their signature blend of progressive electronica and melodic house. This official remix stays true to the original’s infectious and poppy soul, while simultaneously adding a beautiful layer of dance aesthetic.
Adding to their immersion into the remix, Louis Vivet’s Nicolas II also contributed the artwork – the hand drawn, watercolor portrait used for the track art is his own creation.
The duo’s version of ‘Dead’ comes hot on the heels of their debut original track, ‘Downbeat’, which released on L.A. based Prep School Recordings. Louis Vivet’s subtle treatment is a perfect segway into Phoebe’s highly anticipated follow up release.

Hardwell releases his official music video for “Echo” featuring Jonathan Mendelsohn. Still riding the waves of success from his I AM HARDWELL World Tour, the release of his highly-anticipated debut album, United We Are, and his epic Miami Music Week that included a headlining set at Ultra Music Festival Miami, Hardwell only fuels his momentum from 2014 into 2015 with a captivating music video for his standout single, “Echo,” featuring Jonathan Mendelsohn.
Sculpting a gripping tale of heartbreak, love, and visions of the past, director Robin Diree interprets Hardwell’s crude yet melodious original into an elderly man’s journey into his wounding past guided by an unlikely companion amidst a stunning mountain backdrop. The music video surfaces just as Hardwell is about to embark on a hectic summer season, reinforcing his role as one of dance music’s most consistently innovative leaders.

When Nile Rodgers and Daft Punk hit the radio waves with “Get Lucky” and broke the music sphere, I still couldn’t get enough of the song even though I probably heard it more than a hundred times. That’s because disco is back and I can’t get enough of the funky guitar licks and groovy melodies. Disco Despair just released just dropped their I’m No Good EP and the Roisto remix of the title track, “I’m No Good,” is literally disco perfection. Check it for yourself below!
