Celebrating our first anniversary, DJ Mag USA welcome Tiësto to the cover. Despite - or maybe because of - modelling himself on Arnie in The Terminator ('come with me if you want to hear EDM'), the Dutch superstar is once again leading the pack, first changing his sound and now setting up as resident in Las Vegas for the summer rather than spending it, as tradition dictates, in Ibiza. Keeping mainroom fans happy, we also catch up with Steve Angello, post SHM, and Laidback Luke, who gives us his formula for filling dancefloors.
Following the recent Chicago special, this time we set our sights on Detroit, the birthplace of techno. With a review of the Movement Electronic Music Festival, we also feature the likes of Kevin Saunderson and son Dantiez, Carl Craig, Robert Hood, MK and DJ Godfather.
And that's just scratching the surface, with features on the history of the synth and the iconic Roland 303, Marquee residents W&W, Frenchman in LA Bob Sinclar, diminutive deep house DJ Maya Jane Coles and lots more.
