Artist Experience: Dive Deep (Winners of Paradiso Festival Invitational)

10397143_10152225670381342_7012988098881947660_o

Last month we sent Dive Deep to the Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington to play at the Paradiso Festival! They were the winners of the Wavo Paradiso Contest and got to play alongside Above & Beyond, Zedd, Bassnectar, Krewella, and many more!

 

We caught up with the duo and asked them to share their experience with us!

“Playing the stage at The Gorge was absolutely unreal. The canyon in the background of the stage looked like a painting, with both of us coming from Colorado, it’s hard to say if it’s more beautiful than Red Rocks but it’s at least in the same league!”

 

Dive Deep was quick to add how the contest really helped him break out:

“I still remember getting the call that we won on the Friday before. It’s amazing how that one little mix on Wavo created so much opportunity for us, immediately we saw a huge jump in our Facebook likes and Soundcloud plays and follows.”

 

Check out their live set on Wavo:

The backstage vibe was also just as memorable:

“The experience at the festival offstage was equally insane. Not only did we get the opportunity to play a huge stage, but we also had the chance to talk with major artists and local stars. Being backstage with some of our idols was honestly one of the best parts of the experience. Whether it was even just seeing Wolfgang Gartner up close or talking to Audien and Maor Levi before their sets, it was all extremely surreal. Backstage we were also able to make some awesome connections within the industry, we got to meet local Washington artists, and we discussed future remixes and collaborations.”

 

We wish you all the best and are keen to see what is next for Dive Deep!

Artist Experience: Noize Chemistz (Bass Camp Festival DJ Invitational Winners)

This past weekend we sent Noize Chemistz to Lake Tahoe to play on the Main Stage at the second annual Bass Camp Festival alongside big name DJs like Datsik, Infected Mushroom, and Candyland after they had won the Bass Camp Festival DJ Invitational hosted on our website!

Needless to say, they had a great time playing at the festival as well as partying under the sun:

“We had a great time playing at the festival, the sun was shining and the speakers were pumping all day long. The venue was awesome and all three stages sat in a grassy area. Many of the Dj’s were locals from northern Nevada and California. We pretty much spent the running around and partying from stage to stage.”

You can take a look at a part of their set played at Bass Camp here:

They also got to spend some time with big name DJs including Infected Mushroom:

“The headliners absolutely smashed the main stage, [...] My personal favorite performance was from Infected Mushroom and after they finished playing we got the pleasure to sit and chat with them for about 45 minutes.”

Trevor Lopez and Alex Martinez out from Reno, NV are the duo that make up Noize Chemistz .They have been Djing since they were 16 and have been growing their skills and style ever since. Now, at the age of 22, they are playing with some major acts and their music style is expanding to reach audiences of all types. Playing at Bass Camp was another big step for them in their music career and it doesn’t seem like it’s slowing down anytime soon!

PREMIERE: Toolroom Records brings us Dismantle’s “Computer Freak”

unnamed

Since obtaining his first set of turntables at just 13, Brighton based electronic DJ & producer Dismantle has since risen to the forefront of the underground dance world, bringing raw beats, pounding basslines & new, undiscovered sounds to the UK Bass scene. Fusing the raucous energy of Drum & Bass and Grime with the smoother rhythmic thrust of House, Dismantle’s unique sound has gained him regular support from Radio 1 DJ’s Diplo, Annie Mac, Skrillex, Mista Jam & Skream. 

Today we’re lucky to officially premiere ”Computer Games”, a track off of Dismantle’s newest release with our friends over at Toolroom Records. “Computer Games” is a fast-paced, almost glitchy track with obvious influences from Dismantle’s D&B days. Aptly titled, it’s an electronic whirlwind that makes you feel like you’re right in the middle of a high intensity videogame. Cool synth programming and jungley drums carry the track magnificently, and to us it’s the highlight of his new release. Nu-disco has been around for years now…is it time to start appreciating nu-D&B? Check out the track below!

Deadmau5 trolls Deorro for Twitter rage and homophobic slur

You can’t expect Tomorrowland to launch without a huge bang right? Well, Deorro decided to express his feelings towards the hospitality at Tomorrowland when his manager was denied a food token prior to his set on Friday.

He even hinted at not playing in Tomorrowland because of the situation.

 

Expressing how you feel is all fine until you pull out the homophobic slurs…

Screen-Shot-2014-07-21-at-12.20.58-PM

 

(He soon deleted the tweet)

Of course the iconic twitter presence of Deadmau5 had to appear in such drama.

 

Either Deorro sobered up, he wanted to save face, or Deadmau5 talked some sense into him. Either way, Deorro apologized explaining that his Twitter rage was a result of a combination of heat and alcohol and that he could carry out his Tomorrowland set. As for replying to Deadmau5, there wasn’t much he could do except playing it off as a joke.

Check out 3LAU feat. Bright Lights – “How You Love Me” (JUSTice Remix)

Check out the song that won our 3LAU remix competition by JUSTice!

JUSTice took a unique approach to remixing the song, giving it a deep house vibe. Unlike other entries, JUSTice’s remix is filled with beautifully smooth lyrics and looping that is multi-layered yet very clear and stylishly timed. The offbeat and hi-hats that come in after the drop fit in well, and are interesting additions. We wouldn’t be surprised if this song makes it up to the top of our deep house chart.
