VINAI is an Italian EDM project consisting of two brothers, Alessandro and Andrea Vinai. After forming in 2011, they came to prominence in 2012 courtesy of a string of well-received remixes for the likes of LMFAO (for whom they put a new spin on ubiquitous chart-topper 'Sexy & I Know It') as well as the queen diva of pop, Nicki Minaj.
Further remixes followed for the likes of Steve Aoki, David Guetta, The Chainsmokers and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and as you’d imagine from a roll-call like that, the guys are very much hot property when it comes to EDM.
Remixes aside, VINAI also possess the Midas touch when it comes to their originals. Tracks such as 'Bounce Generation' and 'Legend' are proof of the fact, but it was barnstorming appearances at Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival that really set the guys on the course to greatness and cemented their place at EDM’s top table. So where do the guys conjure up all the “crazy energy” they bring to their sets and productions? It just comes from our “crazy minds”, says Alessandro. We don’t doubt that one bit.
Although he’s better known for his movies these days, it’s worth remembering that Will Smith has also enjoyed a stellar career in music, with a string of hits to his name such as “Just The Two of Us”, “Wild Wild West” and the feel-good classic that is “Summertime”.
Now that he’s conquered Hollywood, it seems the Men in Black star is intent on returning to music, with the EDM scene his destination of choice. And so it is that we’ve been introduced to his new track, ‘Get Lit’, a big-room collaboration with Jazzy Jeff that’s unlikely to go down in the history books...

Martin Garrix dropped three new tracks at Austin City Limits this weekend, as the double weekender, which featured in the epic Live Nation 'festival passport' we reported on earlier this the year, kicked off with a serious display of EDM bigness.
No one is safe from the scorn of Liam Gallagher. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone to promote his new album, 'As You Were', he was asked what he thought of EDM — and he didn't mince his words.
