For years MTV cribs have allowed us mere mortals to peep through the keyhole of some of the most over-the-top celebrity homes — and for the latest episode, which has just aired on Snapchat, we get to snoop around Steve Aoki's palatial crib.
The DJ and producer lives in a 15,600-square-foot house in Las Vegas, Nevada, which has 5 bedrooms and is valued at a cool $2.8 million.
Set Mo have been making waves on the Autralian house scene for a few years now, so we thought it high time they were put the test for our Fresh Kicks series.
The duo — formed of Nick Drabble and Stu Turner — really found their feet back in 2015 with hit track, 'White Dress' — a blissed-out slice of summertime house, which has become something of a signature sound.
Ossie joins the Exploited roster this month with two tracks of blissful, upbeat house to kickstart the summer.
The London producer has made quite the name for himself over the past few years, dropping EPs for the likes of Hyperdub, Wolf Music and Chase & Status' MTA Records.
'Honey' — our pick from his latest effort — sees Ossie utilise chopped up vocals to weave a silky smooth slice of funtime house that's irresistably groovy.
Aroop Roy makes his debut on London label House Of Disco this month with the three-track 'Talkin Bout Life' EP.
Dropping work that ranges in influence between disco, jazz, house and Afro and Latin styles, Roy's been making waves with records for Basic Fingers, G.A.M.M. and Freestyle Records — the latter of which released his 2010 album 'Nomadic Soul', and a subsequent remixes version the following year.
FeelGoodSmalls joins the long list of top up-and-coming artists who've contributed to our Fresh Kicks series this week.
First popping up on our rader when she scored second place in the Miller Genuine Draft Soundclash World DJ Competition in 2015, FeelGoodSmalls (Martha Eva) impressed again when she span down at DJ Mag HQ last year.
Roland Clark joins the roster of Sam Divine's label, D-Vine Sounds, this month, dropping his new track 'Do You Remember' with production mate, Ant LaRock.
Currently based out of Atlanta — although originally learning his trade in the clubs of NYC — Delete Records boss, Clark, has built up quite the back-catalogue, working with the likes of Todd Terry, Kenny Dope and more, and scoring numerous scene defining hits during a career spanning over 25 years.
There is no denying that Darius Syrossian does things his own way. In the modern world, even the freshest faces in the scene have managers, PRs and social media teams all working for them. These teams orchestrate every post, every interview and every word spoken by their artist. Although it’s nice that some professionalism has come to the all-too-often lackadaisical dance world, it can all get a little too stale. Too often people keep their mouth shut in order to make friends with people in high places.
Loud shirts, branded snap-caps and enough big-room rollers to bring down a fighter jet, Solardo are the most unstoppable force in UK tech-house at the moment. Born after a chance meeting in Manchester between an ex-dubstep pioneer and an aspiring house producer, the duo suddenly found themselves dropping tunes onto Skream's Of Unsound Mind label and Jamie Jones' Hot Creations while going viral online left, right and centre. With their Solardo Sessions touring the UK, we checked in with the boys ahead of their appearance for us at The Raleigh Hotel in Miami later this month...
Orlando Voorn drops his new track 'Love' as part of Entrepôt Records' latest LP.
The Belgian label is based in Brussels, the heart of Europe. It was founded by UC Beatz in 2014 with the idea to release raw house beats on wax and is dedicated to the underground culture and influenced by the house of Chicago and Detroit, disco, hip-hop, soul and funk.
The label is intentionally not distributed and sell his releases directly to the customer and to the shops. Each release is limited to 100 copies with no repress.
By now the history of electronic music and its journey into clubs, concert venues, stadiums and homes worldwide is a well-established narrative. It’s a story that typically includes the same names along the way: Giorgio Moroder here, Patrick Cowley there; Vangelis on the one hand, Derrick May on the other.
