Interview With EDX


We sat down with Grammy nominated, Swiss-Italian talent DJ/Producer, and No Xcuses label boss EDX before he lands at Bang Bang this Saturday, February 2nd.  Grab your tickets here!

1 - Congratulations on your Grammy Nomination for your remix of Charlie Puth this year! Did you expect this nomination or was it a complete surprise?

Thank you! It’s been absolutely incredible to be nominated for a Grammy. It’s always been a dream of mine to receive a nomination, so I’m over the moon. I can’t wait to attend the award shows in a few days in Los Angeles!

2 - Can you tell us the story behind this remix? What inspired you to take the original in this direction?

I got the vocal part sent from Charlie’s management and I instantly knew it would fit perfectly with the EDX signature sound. I went into the studio and everything happened pretty quickly. It’s such an awesome song by Charlie and I’m so thankful I got to put my spin on it.

3 - You have more than two decades working in this industry. What has been the biggest change for you over these years? Do you think that it was easier to get into the scene back then than it is now?

I guess I was one of the founding members of the electronic movement back in Switzerland in the 90s and I can say that the scene is completely different now to how it was then. The market is certainly much bigger now than it was — especially in America — and with the dawn of the internet and social media, everything happens so much more quickly than it used to. I’d say it’s slightly easier to get into the scene now because you have everything you need at your fingertips.

4 - What got you into the world of DJ’ing?

First and foremost, it was my love and passion for music. I would say, second to that, was the curiosity I had with the electronic music scene when it first started. I grew up listening to Hip Hop and surrounded myself with breakdance culture, but when I was first exposed to Acid House in the late 80s it was so different to anything I’d experienced before and I was fascinated by it. I’ve been in love with electronic music ever since.

5 - You have multiple collabs with so a variety of talented artists. What has been your favorite collaboration so far?

Each collaboration is something special. I love the challenge of working with such a diverse selection of amazing artists and each project brings something different and takes you outside of your comfort zone. I really enjoyed the collaboration I did with Kaskade for his album called ‘Don’t Stop Dancing’.

6 - If you could produce a track with any artist (Dead or Alive) who would it be and why?

I was a huge fan of Madonna in the 80s and to be able to do a record with her would be simply amazing. I also love the likes of Michael Jackson, Barry White and Marvin Gaye. There are just too many to choose from!

7 - What has been the biggest moment in your career so far?

There have been so many incredible moments both in the studio and on the road. In 2018 I would have to say my Grammy nomination and the launch of my new live show XIRCUIT.

8 – What type of music do you enjoy listening to when Electronic music isn’t playing?

I love all types of music to be honest. When I’m not listening to electronic music, I really like the chilled, deeper sounds. Nothing too noisy. Just easy listening music really.

9 - What can we expect from EDX this year?

Lots more music, more touring and some amazing XIRCUIT shows all over the world!

10 - With an extensive career playing in several festivals and clubs, do you prefer one more than the other? Are there any gigs stands out the most when you reminisce on them?

I’ve been DJing for more than two decades and I love playing both club shows and big festivals. I really like the intimacy you get in nightclubs — I think you have a connection to the audience that you can't really get at a festival. Having said that, I’ve played some amazing festivals over the years and I would never want to stop performing at these. Summer wouldn’t be the same!

Jauz's Feeding Friendzy Tour Invades LA

When Jauz advertised "very special guests" would be joining him on stage during his much anticipated return to LA this past weekend, nobody could have predicted the who's who of all-star DJs that helped blow the roof off the Fonda Theatre back-to-back nights. Those who were lucky enough to attend both nights were treated to two very different (but equally mind-blowing) lineups and performances.

Thursday night kicked off with opening performances from west coast G-house up-and-comer Ryan Collins, as well as trap heavyweight araabMUZIK - who (as always) impressed with his unrivaled live production skills. This, however, was just the tip of the iceberg.

Once the anthemic intro of 'Welcome to Planet Urf' came over the speakers, the crowd new it was time for the real show to begin. Anticipation quickly turned to gratification, as Jauz hit the stage and wasted now time dropping his signature mix of electrifying bass-house and face-melting dubstep.

Few producers/DJs are as in high demand right now as Jauz (aka Sam Vogel). At just 22 years of age, he's managed to help pioneer the bass-house genre, reinvigorated the dubstep scene, and has garnered the support of some the biggest names in the industry. Aside from obvious hard work, motivation and dedication, much of Jauz's success can be attributed to the unwavering support of his fans, who have affectionately been dubbed the 'sharksquad' - who were out in full force during his two-night takeover of the Fonda.

Aside from popular EDM bangers like Herobust's Smother Shit, and Jauz's own remix of Knife Party's PLUR Police, he also displayed his range and paid homage to some of the music that influenced him growing up, by mixing in System of a Down's B.Y.O.B., Linkin Park's In The End, as well as the Drezo remix of Drowning Pool's Bodies.

It was soon time to introduce his first very special guest of the night, his mother Lisa, which resulted in a collective "Awwwwww" from the crowd. In a facebook post, Jauz went on to say, "I owe so much to her and her unconditional support. She has always been my rock and my biggest supporter and I couldn't be more happy that she came out to watch me this weekend."

Jauz then introduced his next special guest; none other than happy-trap pioneer Marshmello who joined Jauz b2b. Fans were treated to an extended set by the masked DJ, whose self-imposed anonymity combined with his one-of-a-kind sound of flowing neon melodies, booming 808’s and pitched and modulated vocals has helped fuel his (as well as the genre's) meteoric rise.

Jauz Marshmello The Friendzy Tour

Many were hoping Mello would make an appearance, as Jauz as always been a huge proponent of his music, and those folks were not disappointed. Even better, he didn't just hop on the mixers for a couple of tracks, but instead treated the crowd to a mini Mello concert, which included newer cuts like Flash Funk, his remix of Adelle's Hello, and the Jauz x Marshmello collab remix of Duke Dumont's Need U (100%).

If the show would have ended at this point, anyone would have chalked this show up to one of the best in recent memory. However, Jauz wasn't done, nor were his special guest. Just when you thought things couldn't get any better, Borgore, Getter, Snails and Ookay hit the stage for a set that had dubstep enthusiasts simultaneously dancing and drooling. By the end of the night, it was evident by the look on the crowds face that they knew they'd just witnessed something truly special.

While some might have thought that Friday night would be a letdown compared to Thursday's superstar lineup, it was soon clear how dead wrong that speculation was.

Alvin Risk got the crowd warmed up, and was followed by the first surprise guest of the evening, Waka Flocka Flame. Joined by DJ Whoo Kid, Waka Flocka drew an eruption from everyone at the venue with his fiery brand of trap. With a start to the night like that, it was clear that the crowd was in for another legendary night.

When Jauz finally hit the stage, his sharksquad made their presence known. Those in attendance night one that thought they'd hear a lot of the same tracks were treated to a very different set than night one.

After blessing the audience with the classics as well as some deep cuts, Jauz announced his next special guest of the night; OG Kill The Noise. The on stage combination of one of the innovators of dubstep, along with one of the genres newest superstars was something incredible to see (and hear, of course).

The end of the night was again the pinnacle of the evening, as Marshmello, Ookay and Getter returned. However, this time, they were joined none other than global icons Skrillex and Diplo (Jack Ü). The energy of the crowd went from already unmeasurable to straight-up earth-shattering. The addition of What So Not, Aryay, Dirtyphonics, and LED's own TJR accounted for one of the most memorable b2b sets of all-time, and turned the Fonda into perhaps one of the largest EDM parties the city of LA has ever experienced.

Perhaps even better than knowing that those in attendance were truly having the time of their lives, was the fact that the talent on stage was having just as an amazing experience. It's refreshing to see that no matter how globally successful all of the aforementioned artists have become, they still do what they do night in and night out to put a smile on the collective faces of their fans.

At this point, Jauz withdrawl has set in, and the sharksquad is eagerly awaiting their next chance to see this incredible performer, and whatever special guests he has in store for us next time.

Jauz Marshmello Fonda Theatre LED presents

Zeds Dead Take the Fonda in Epic 2 Night Stand

Hooks and DC (or Zeds Dead with their powers combined) brought their multifaceted sound of low-end wubs, head-nodding hip hop and energizing electro house to the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles this past weekend for an unforgettable Two Night Stand event which also included sets from Aryay, Astronomer, and a very special appearance from Mr. Sonny Moore (Skrillex, guys).

The Fonda proved to be the perfect setting for the Canadian duo’s return to LA, and the crowd couldn’t have been more ready. Notorious for their deep, oftentimes dark and heavy style, Zeds Dead certainly didn't disappoint - curating a genre-spanning mix that included ZD staples like Adrenaline, Hudouken, Wit Me Dub and Collapse; as well as brand new material from their upcoming album that left the ID heads in the crowd reeling.

Those who have been fortunate to catch Zeds Dead live know that few acts can match the eclectic nature or emotional intensity of a ZD show - and those who attended Friday or Saturday night’s performance received the customary faceful of bass and heartful of feels that fans have come to expect from the dynamic duo.

From the initial drop to the very last fadeout, ZD kept the crowd in a perpetual state of bliss by incorporating unexpected gems into their carefully crafted set list. In typical Zeds Dead fashion, the guys came out of the gates with subs blasting, as if to thank all the loyal OG ZD devotees in the house, and let new fans know that they had, in fact, come to the right place.

What can only be described has a lightning quick descent from heaven to hell, ZD’s seamless transition from the Marshemello remix of Avicii’s ‘Waiting for Love’ to ‘Wit Me Dub,’ their collab with Megalodon, was without a doubt one of the more memorable drops of the evening.

Staying true to their hip hop roots, the crowd was also treated to a ZD flip of 'Hip Hop' by Dead Presidents, the track that had everyone’s trunks rattling at one point or another.

One thing that became very apparent throughout the course of their weekend performance is the true love and respect that ZD has for the music and their fans. While it seems other DJ/Producers get behind the mixers and blindly blaze through their cookie-cutter set, it’s clear that Hooks and DC strive for (and achieve) so much more, by encouraging the crown to hug the person next to you as Skream’s remix of ‘Going in for the Kill’ came over the speakers.

The end of the night saw a nostalgic trap flip of ‘Better off Alone,’ which may or may not have brought a tear to our eye.

With a new album on the horizon, we’re excited at the prospects of seeing a lot more of Zeds Dead in 2016.

Tramps Like Us 2015 Recap

On September 25th, the Valley View Casino Center underwent its quarterly transformation into the LED Dome as dance music fans invaded the arena to experience Tramps Like Us. The stacked lineup coupled with the amazing atmosphere led to an unforgettable night for attendees.

Everyone who showed up early to the LED Dome was greeted by a huge opening set by UFO.

Wax Motif took the stage after UFO and kept the crowd hyped with his blend of future bass and g-house. If you missed his set, you can catch him at CRSSD Fest on October 10th.

heRobust came on after Wax Motif and had everyone in the crowd throwing up their trap arms.

Branchez kept the trap vibe going, but he elected to scale it back a bit from heRobust's crazy, drop-filled set. The change in sound was welcomed by the crowd, as everyone's arms seemed to be tired after throwing them up during the previous set.

Kryder took the stage next and laid down an enjoyable house set before the three co-headliners—Martin Solveig, 3LAU, and Adventure Club—took the stage.

Martin Solveig strayed from his pop sound as a producer and showed that he can drop some massive festival tunes as a DJ. If you want to relive Solveig's set, you're in luck. One brave soul recorded the entire set, which you can watch below.

3LAU followed up Solveig with a set full of feel-good, singalong tracks. He dropped ZAXX's remix of Alice Deejay's classic, "Better Off Alone," as well as his own edits of Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Otherside" and Paris & Simo's remix of Zombie by Kernkraft 400. However, the 3LAU edit that received the most love from the crowd was his mashup of Galantis' "U & I" and his own single, "How You Love Me."

Adventure Club didn't hit the stage until 2:15am, but their infectious energy managed to whip the crowd into a frenzy. Their set was stuffed with hits, and one of their songs stood out as the most memorable moment of the night for me. As a 25-year-old working in the corporate world, Adventure Club's remix of "Youth" struck a chord. With the night winding down and my group of friends trying to squeeze out every last bit of fun from the event, I belted out the lyrics of "Youth." I loved the remix when it first came out, but I didn't truly relate to it until I heard Adventure Club drop it at Tramps Like Us.

Brillz closed out the night with his signature twonk sound. The fans who were still at the LED Dome went crazy. They clearly wanted to savor every last minute of Tramps Like Us before they had to head home. The last tramps standing ensured that this was an experience they would never forget.

KSHMR Debuts at the Fonda Theater

KSHMR fans have been patiently waiting to catch a glimpse of the mysterious producer/DJ (formerly of The Cataracs) in action since his debut in 2014. Just as excitement and anticipation seemed to be reaching near intolerable levels, big room and progressive house enthusiasts rejoiced as KSHMR’s first ever live performance took place in Hollywood over the weekend.

Although he’s been a staple on the Beatport charts since exploding onto the dance scene over a year ago, KSHMR has chosen to spend his time in the studio finetuning his craft, instead of on stage. That all changed as the “Burn” producer prepared to stepped out in front of a packed house at the Fonda Theater this past Saturday.

Those familiar with the genre know that progressive house is all about energy. With that said, few producers take you from zero to sixty as fast or as hard as KSHMR. In true big room fashion, his tracks are powered by core-cutting kicks that propel you through a reverb soaked melody. However, this isn’t some uninspired, cookie-cutter house. Instead, the style that KSHMR is able to achieve is unequivocally his own, and resembles what you might imagine a Hans Zimmer movie score to sound like if he had grown up a raving millennial.

Before it was time for KSHMR to anoint us with the sweet nectar of the house gods, we would first be treated to performances by trap heavyweight Yogi, and fellow big room behemoths Bassjackers. The tone of the night was set as soon as Yogi got the bass booming by dropping his unmistakable brand of dark trill-hop. Faces lit up and eyes widened as the crowd was picking up what Yogi was putting down, and visa versa.

Once the time came for Bassjackers to take the stage, the energy was high and smiles were widespread - both of which increased exponentially once Bassjackers began to deliver their electronic gospel to an audience that was all ears. In fact, I was beginning to wonder if KSHMR would be able to whip the crowd into a bigger frenzy than they already were in.

He certainly didn’t disappoint, as his unforgiving, anthemic production style translated well to the stage. Syths soared as KSHMR took the audience on a fast-paced, hard-hitting musical journey of epic proportions. As hit after hit blasted through the speakers, the energy of the crowd grew palpable, and before long the Fonda had transformed into a scene straight out of Sahara Tent. Fans were treated to familiar favorites like “Karate”, “Megalodon” and “Secrets,” as well as new tracks and deeper cuts that undoubtedly left some scouring the internet for a setlist.

The vibe was electric from start to finish, as what started as a group of strangers at a show turned into a family of friends who had just experienced one for the ages.

Skrillex Taking Over San Diego During Labor Day Weekend

Skrillex LED Day Club 2015

Are you looking to have some fun in San Diego during Labor Day Weekend? Well, circle September 6th on your calendar because Skrillex is coming to town, and he's taking over San Diego. The international superstar will be playing two San Diego shows in one day. During the early evening, he will be headlining a show at the Quartyard. LED DJ Klatch, budding techno star Rezz, and OWSLA's Mija are opening for Skrillex at the Quartyard. Once the sun goes down, Skrillex will head across downtown to play a nighttime set at Parq Nightclub.

Skrillex recently became a mainstay on the radio due to his hit song, "Where Are U Now," as a part of his superduo Jack U with Diplo. Of course, Justin Bieber's name recognition and flute-like vocals went a long way in popularizing the song. However, it's Skrillex's ear-rattling brand of dubstep—often referred to as American dubstep or brostep—that first propelled him to dance music stardom in 2010. His songs served as an introduction to electronic music for many of today's most fervent dance music fans. He could have easily remained content as a dubstep superstar, but Skrillex's passion for pushing the boundaries of dance music as OWSLA's founder coupled with his undying desire to develop as a producer helped him transform into one of dance music's most respected tastemakers.

Mija has been a clear beneficiary of Skrillex's search for the most talented producers. Last year, she was tirelessly working to gain recognition in the Arizona club scene when she made the trek to play a set at Bonnaroo in Tennessee. However, she wasn't scheduled to play at one of the festival's massive stages. She was scheduled to play a small set in the Bonnaroo campsite at the Burning Man Art Car at 5:45am. When 5:45am came around, Skrillex randomly rolled up to the art car after finding out that Bonnaroo's silent disco had already closed. Mija asked Skrillex if he wanted to go b2b, and he indulged her. Their set was uploaded to NEST HQ's SoundCloud, and an EDM.com article about the situation went viral. Within hours of EDM.com's article, Mija's Facebook went from a few hundred followers to a few thousand. The viral article helped show off Mija's transcendent talent, resulting in a meteoric rise to stardom for the Arizona native.

Skrillex's open-mindedness about music is one of his most impressive qualities. For example, take a look at the musicians he booked to open for him during his Takeovers last year: A$AP Rocky, Seven Lions, Jack Beats, Alvin Risk, Louisahhh!!!, Craze, UZ, David Heartbreak, Etnik, Samo Sound Boy, GTA, Just Blaze, Lunice, Shift K3Y, AC Slater, Bro Safari, Clockwork, and TOKiMONSTA. That list includes trap, hip hop, techno, progressive house, dubstep, and more. Skrillex appreciates all types of music, which isn't a very big surprise considering his transformation from the vocalist of a hardcore band into an electronic music star.

His love for all music is evidenced by the DJs opening up for him at The Quartyard. In addition to Mija, Rezz and Klatch will be spinning opening sets. Rezz has recently taken the blogosphere by storm with her grimy, industrial techno sound. She has been described as the "female Gesaffelstein." That is a gross oversimplification, but it helps you gain an idea of her sound. Rezz will be a household name in techno circles by 2016.

Klatch used to be an LED DJ as one-half of Deth Hertz. He has fine-tuned his sound and developed into a talented producer of sultry deep house. His set will be the perfect way to kick off the show at The Quartyard as the sun still sits high above in San Diego's blue sky.

You don't want to miss out on Skrillex's shows at The Quartyard and Parq. They are the perfect way to spend your Labor Day Weekend.

LED OMFG! SD 2015 Recap

LED rang in 2015 in a big way. OMFG! SD was expanded to a three-day event, taking place December 29-31 at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego. On top of that, a second stage—"The Zoo"—was added to the massive event. The lineup was packed with some of dance music's biggest names, including Tiesto, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, Madeon, Flosstradamus, and Deorro. But before we dig into the headlining acts, we have to address some of the up-and-coming producers/DJs who threw down mind-blowing sets at OMFG! SD.

What So Not absolutely blew up in 2014. Emoh Instead and Flume comprise the duo, but Emoh typically tours on his own under the What So Not name. His set on the first day of OMFG! SD injected the crowd with endless energy.

DJ Sliink and Trippy Turtle brought Jersey Club to The Zoo on consecutive days. The King of Jersey Club, DJ Sliink, was the bed-squeak purveyor on Day 1, and he did not disappoint. The next day, Trippy Turtle—arguably the most popular Jersey Club producer—almost shut The Zoo down. People began lining up to get into The Zoo 25 minutes before Trippy Turtle's set started. Some people were forced to wait in line for 30+ minutes by security due to safety reasons. However, the wait was well worth it. Trippy Turtle had the crowd dancing from start to finish, as he played his own hits interspersed with some awesome remixes. The crowd sang along when he played a remix of Ginuwine's "Pony," and I personally enjoyed when he played some Craig David.

Bixel Boys#FREELIFE jersey adorned countless OMFG! SD attendees all three days of the event. The jersey's success has helped increase the profile of the LA-based duo. The Bixel Boys played an early set on New Year's Eve, but they still managed to whip the crowd into a frenzy with their "big room underground" tunes. After their set at OMFG! SD, Rob May and Ian MacPherson rushed to their headlining set at Bang Bang in Downtown San Diego to ring in 2015.

The LED DJs were well represented at OMFG! SD. TJR, Brazzabelle, SNBRN, Klatch, and Deth Hertz all played crowd-pleasing sets. Just a few years ago, these LED DJs were playing opening sets at Voyeur. Now, some of them are traveling across the country (or world in TJR's case) to play their own headlining shows.

The headliners for Day 1 and 2, Hardwell and Tiesto, played solid sets for the big room house music fans. Flosstradamus might have had the most energetic set at OMFG! SD, which peaked when they played their hit track "Mosh Pit." The floor opened up during the song, and attendees flung themselves against each other in a display of youthful exuberance.

On the last day of OMFG! SD, GTA played during the countdown to 2015.

Although the countdown was a huge deal, OMFG! SD was far from over. Gareth Emery and Henry Fong followed GTA with fun sets, leading into Deorro. The Melbourne Bounce producer previously announced that he was retiring from touring after 2014, and the anticipation for his set was palpable. The crowd was starting to lose its energy following the countdown, but as soon as Deorro jumped on stage at 2am, everyone went nuts.

Eric Prydz closed out the night with an awesome set. With his progressive house style, it can be difficult to fully immerse yourself in the Prydz experience during a shorter set. However, he made effective adjustments and delivered a hypnotizing set to the attendees who were able to last past 4am.

If you're having withdrawals following OMFG! SD, don't worry: LED Anniversary will be taking place at the Valley View Casino Center on February 15th!

Tramps Like Us Day 2 Preview


We've already released a preview of the first day of Tramps Like Us that you can read hereToday, we're here with a preview of the second day of the massive event.

ƱZ is one of the most intriguing acts in the dance music world at the moment. There are many theories as to whose face is behind the ƱZ mask. Regardless of ƱZ's true identity, there's no doubt that the man behind the mask is an extremely talented producer. He's one of the most prominent names in trap music, and his talent led to prominent rappers such as Trinidad James, Casey Veggies and Problem stepping into the studio with ƱZ to help create Balltrap Muzik Vol. 1. If you've seen ƱZ live, you're familiar with the fact that he always knows how to make the crowd turn up. His wild sets have gotten Voyeur crowds so turnt up that mosh pits happened. Don't miss out on the crazy energy that the trap extraordinaire will bring to the Valley View Casino Center stage!

Next up on the list is LA resident Anna Lunoe. She just moved to Los Angeles last year from  Sydney, Australia, and she's already made a huge impact on American soil. Anna Lunoe initially started her career as the host a dance music show on FBi Radio in Sydney. From there, the multi-talented Australian moved into DJing and producing. To further illustrate her talent, she's even laid down her heavenly vocals to a number of tracks. When it comes to describing Anna Lunoe's sound, don't try to put her into a box. She's been known to spin house, techno, nu disco, glitch, garage and indie pop. In an interview with Denver Westwood, she said, "I'm naturally attracted to a lot of different music, and I'm more in love with the ideas behind different musical movements than one particular genre." Anna Lunoe's diverse set at Tramps Like Us will undoubtedly be a ton of fun!

Borgore needs no introduction. The Israeli gorestep producer rose to fame on the back of his huge drops, mind-bending wobbles and raunchy lyrics. His inclusion of Miley Cyrus on his single "Decisions" led to him garnering even more attention across the globeHowever, the most shocking moment of his career was when he released his collaboration with Carnage, "Incredible." The song was a huge departure from what the music industry had come to expect from Borgore. It is a big room house anthem that was played at festivals worldwide. "Incredible" showed that Borgore has plenty of tricks up his sleeve as he continues to rise up the dance music ranks. He's also shown great ability as a record label manager, as he's brought on huge talent such as Bare, Kennedy Jones and Ookay. We can't wait to see what Borgore has in store for us during Labor Day Weekend! 

Chuckie has consistently made people jump for years with his high-energy music. Wait, shouldn't we be calling him Sir Clyde Narain? That's right--the Dirty Dutch purveyor was recently knighted in his homeland of Suriname. That should show you big of a deal Chuckie is! He has been a fixture in the house music scene dating back to the release of "Let The Bass Kick" in 2008. His consistency as a producer has been extremely impressive. You might need a Redbull before Chuckie takes the stage at Tramps Like Us, because he might wear you out with all the jumping you'll be doing!

Gareth Emery made a huge wave in the dance music industry when he came out in opposition to the controversial DJ Mag Top 100. The catalyst to his decision was a PR company who approached him saying that another DJ had spent $15,000 on solely Twitter advertising. Instead of spending money on DJ Mag Top 100 advertising, Gareth Emery told his fans that attending his shows was enough support, and he urdged the public to not vote for him in the poll. Furthermore, he donated $15,000 to five different charities. The move by Gareth Emery deservedly received support from many people in the music industry. Although he used to be known for his trance music, Gareth Emery has made a transition to more of a house/trouse sound, which is evident when listening to his weekly podcast.

R3hab was taken under the wing of Afrojack a few years ago, and he has turned into one of the most prolific remixers in the dance music industry. However, that doesn't take anything away from R3hab in the original production department. In the past, he's had huge success with "Prutataaa," "Sending My Love" and "The Bottle Song." He looks to have another huge hit on his hands in the near future with his track "Revolution," which he created with the help of NERVO and Ummet Ozcan. Having R3hab playing on the same night as Chuckie means that there will be a ton of Dirty Dutch music playing, so you better be prepared to do a lot of dancing!

What So Not will no longer be playing at Tramps Like Us due to visa issues, but rest assured that we have replaced their set time with a huge SPECIAL GUEST!

Tramps Like Us Day 1 Preview


Tramps Like Us is so close that we often find ourselves daydreaming about going crazy on the dance floor at the Valley View Casino CenterTo get you even more excited for the event, we're here with a nice little preview of the event. Today, we'll preview the first day of Tramps Like Us, which is taking place on Saturday, August 31st. 

The first name that appears on the bill is Brazzabelle. You might recognize the LEDdj from recent events such as My LED USA, HARD Summer and Splash House. She was also on The CW as the DJ for the 15th Annual Young Hollywood Awards. Hell, she even received a cameo spot in the video for "Hey Now" by Martin Solveig! There's no doubt that Brazzabelle is a rising star in the industry, and we are proud to have her as an LEDdj. She did a great job of kicking off My LED USA, and she will do the same for Tramps Like Us.

Next up on the alphabetical flier is Spanish wunderkind Danny Avila. The 18-year old has accomplished more over the last year than many DJs have done throughout their entire career. Avila played at Coachella, earned placement on Sirius XM for his radio show Ready to Jump, secured a residency at Hakkasan and to top it off, he's booked to play at TomorrowWorld. International superstar Tiesto is on record as saying that Avila is the next big superstar in the dance music industry. After doling out such high praise, it's only fitting that Tiesto signed Avila's new single "Tronco" to his record label Musical Freedom. Listen to "Tronco" and get excited to see the 18-year old Avila at Tramps Like Us before he truly hits international superstar status!

Dirty South's 2013 has been unlike any other year for the veteran Grammy-nominated producers. This year featured the release of the Dirty South's first ever studio album, Speed of LifeThe album hit #1 on the iTunes Dance Chart the day that it was released. Also, the house DJ/producer has a residency at XS Nightclub at Encore. His infectious vocal house tracks always gets people excited, and you can be sure that the Tramps Like Us crowd will be singing at the top of their lungs when he plays "City of Dreams" and "Walking Alone." 

At this point, everyone knows who Nicky Romero is. After he absolutely destroyed the Valley View Casino Center at LED Anniversary last year, everyone in San Diego knew that the Dutch DJ would become a superstar. He just surpassed one million 'likes' on Facebook, and his collaboration with Krewella titled "Legacy," is already at 500,000 listens on Soundcloud after just one month. We are lucky enough to be the first stop on his Nothing Toulouse North America Tour. Let's make sure we kick Nicky Romero's tour off right!

The Russian producer Proxy is next up on the lineup. Proxy aims to seek and destroy when he's spinning, and his unrelenting sets are known to make crowds go bonkers. He does not let up on stage as his blend of techno and electro tracks put the crowd under his spell. If you look up interviews Proxy has given in the past, you'll see that he is an intelligent and very blunt person. Growing up in the bleak Eastern Bloc was clearly influential on the talented Russian. When it comes to answering questions, Proxy never sugarcoats his responses. Proxy desires to CRUSH anything that stands in his path. We can't wait for him to crush the stage at Tramps Like Us!

Quintino is another Hakkasan resident DJ who's playing at Tramps Like Us. Prior to 2013, most people stateside only knew Quintino as a friend of Tiesto and Afrojack and as one of the guys who made "Epic." However, he's worked hard in 2013 to gain international attention. His new single "Puzzle" is currently in the Beatport Top 10, and he's quickly proving that he has what it takes to succeed. His high energy electro house and Dutch house set will be exciting to watch!

Will Sparks has been on fire recently. The Australian producer is currently at the forefront of the 'Melbourne Sound' movement. San Diegans should know all about the bouncy style known as Melbourne Sound, because LEDdj TJR'hit "Ode to Oi" is a perfect example of what the Melbourne Sound is all about. In fact, TJR even edited Will Sparks' track "Ah Yeah." If you have yet to hear "Ah Yeah," you might have heard Will Sparks' remix of "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke. The remix currently sits at #4 on the Beatport Top 10. We'll embed both "Ah Yeah" and the "Blurred Lines" remix below to help keep you bouncing until you can see Will Sparks on August 31st!

Tramps Like Us Interview with Dirty South


LED: You recently played down in San Diego as ‘Special Guest’ at Voyeur. What was the reaction like from the crowd when you stepped up to the DJ booth?
Dirty South: Reaction was incredible that night. I remember doing one little cheeky tweet that there was a chance i might be in town that night, and San Diegans are pretty clever, they figured it out and it was a crazy packed night at Voyeur which happens to be one of my favorite clubs to play in.

LED: You played at the inaugural LED Anniversary show last year. How excited are you to return to San Diego and play for these fans alongside a huge lineup of your peers?
DS: LED puts on great events and I'm always super happy to be part of their shows. Last year was an incredible event and I really miss playing in San Diego. I need to get my ass over there more often.

LED: Do you have a favorite memory from a past show in San Diego?
DS: Yes I do, and it involves the owner of LED, but I can't share it with you for technical and legal reasons 🙂

LED: The term Dirty South has a huge connotation with the Rap/Hip-Hop community. If you could be a rapper, which one would you be and why?
DS: Probably a less-angry version of Eminem. He's always mad about something.

LED: What does the phrase ‘Tramps Like Us’ mean to you?
DS: I think it's super simple. It means having fun and not giving a shit!

TLU I'm Going To


UK producer and label head ADAM F has been making the rounds in the US this year bringing his talents to dance floors and festival grounds all across the country. Between producing countless genres of music, running the highly successful Breakbeat Kaos label and touring all over recently, it's no surprise he find himself in the upper echelon of the dance music world yet again. LED  presents was able to catchup with ADAM F before his upcoming show in San Diego this weekend and pick his brain for a bit. Check out the interview below and be sure to catch ADAM F performing at Voyeur this Thursday!

LED: Most people probably first heard of you through your first artist releases producing Drum & Bass music, so some may not realize that you also produce Hip-Hop. Is Hip Hop where you first started producing? Any major artists you have worked with in the hip-hop industry?

ADAM F: Hip Hop is definitely one of my early loves listening to music but not where I started producing. It’s often I meet producers , artists and D.J’s who make or play Complextro, Trap, House, or Dubstep that first got into electronic music through Drum & Bass and loved hip hop at the time of starting to make music. I have always liked the challenge of producing something different involving Hip-Hop. After my first artist album Colours came the Drum and Bass Warfare project  involving Hip-Hop artists which I took on the road with DJ Craze. I have worked with a lot of the classic Hip-Hop artists that I grew up listening to including Redman, Missy Elliot, De La Soul, Guru, Method Man, M.O.P, Capone n Noreaga, L.L. Cool J, and Dead Prez.

LED: What drew you from hip-hop to the more electronic spectrum of music? Was it an easy transition or did it take some time to really find your sound?

ADAM F: Going to the bigger outdoor festivals and raves that were all electronic music and of course the more intimate underground clubs. I wouldn’t say there was a transition as such as electronic music was evolving then as it always is but producing electronic and Hip-Hop developed simultaneously for me. I just found myself getting into a lot of other dance genres both as a producer and as a DJ and  I just saw it all as an exciting time to combine and evolve music at club level.

LED: With the dance music culture in America differing from Europe it’s often difficult to make the jump overseas and still have a successful career and maintain your sound. Did you find this to be a very daunting task or did you find a way to make it work pretty easily in the US. Do have any advice for others looking to do the same?

ADAM F: Personally I think both sides of the pond have influenced each other at different times and will continue to do so, you can see that now in the more deeper sounds of House and over the last few years in Dubstep. Radio stations are playing more varied dance music than ever before supporting artists from everywhere.

I had a vision one day to try get some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop to work with a UK producer at a time when that just didn’t happen which was daunting at the time and it took going to many shows and handing out CDs and patience but from it came some of my first releases in the US. Those went on to be singles for Redman and L.L Cool J’s first Billboard #1 and opened a world of production opportunities.

So I would say if you have a vision as a producer or artist that seem against the odd’s go for it, now more than ever the worlds ears are open and ready for experimenting and taking the jump.

LED: You have been hitting the festival circuit pretty hard but have also been playing more intimate club gigs. Do you prefer one instead of the other?

ADAM F: I play a mixed set of genres when I DJ. Festivals are always a special experience for me playing to big crowds with mixed music taste and with all the different themes, locations, and stage production. Intimate shows always feel more personal though with a stronger connection to the crowd.

LED: You also run Breakbeat Kaos. What’s it like being a producer, traveling all over on tour, and trying to run a label at the same time?

ADAM F: Traveling and playing out has always been the best way to hear new music and discover new artists for the label.

LED: You’ve released some of the biggest names on the scene on your label such as Pendulum, Chase & Status, and Nero. Are there any other big names with upcoming releases on Breakbeat Kaos that people should be keeping an eye out for?

ADAM F: We have always wanted to work with artist’s that have a vision for the future and can perform live and we feel will naturally evolve their sound. Pendulum who also produce as Knife Party are a great example. Nero and Chase & Status are both amazing artists that perform live, make great albums and continuously produce quality and cutting edge music that keeps the underground movement and true fans excited. At the moment both DJ Fresh and myself are focusing on our own projects, so no new plans for BBK releases at present.

LED: After this tour, what’s next for Adam F? Do you have any collaborations coming up or in the works?

A: Next on the music front is a new single, released on Circus records called ‘The Pit.' It’s a collaboration including myself and Doctor P featuring Method Man. Also a release on Dim Mak as a collab between myself and Cory Enemy called ‘Strike Gold’ You can hear some previews of new music on my soundcloud page.

LED: Lastly, with the dance music scene and culture constantly shifting and changing, what direction to you think is in store for us next? Any new styles or sounds you think will breakout in the next year or so? Maybe a revival of a specific genre?

ADAM F: Yes it’s definitely shifting and changing and that’s what keeps it alive in my opinion. I definitely see the organic side of song structures, emotion and sounds coming through more in some styles of the dance scene. We have seen that in acts like Disclosure and I see more of the 90’s influences becoming more present. Its felt more like a singles or E.P lead market over recent times so this may produce some more great artist album projects, music for inside and out of the clubs. Exciting times!  See you at Voyeur on Thursday night!


Wesley Pentz, more commonly know as Diplo, really wants you to have a good time this summer. From starting the season off with a 6 HOUR ENDLESS SUMMER PLAYLIST to rolling out the latest installment of Mad Decent's annual Block Party Tour, he clearly is looking to keep the party going as long as possible. With such a great showing at least year's events, it's no wonder the Mad Decent Block Party has decided to up the ante and extended the tour and include tons of brand new stops, capping off the tour with the FIRST EVER Mad Decent Block Party in San Diego!

With more high profile artists than ever on the tour, the Mad Decent Block Party is garnering more attention than ever before. Diplo's Jamaican dance-hall circus show/musical act better known as Major Lazer headlines the San Diego stop along side the bone rattling Canadian dubstep group Zeds Dead and drum and saxophone jamming duo Big Gigantic. Other notable acts on the bill include rising female hip-hop star Sasha Go HardBody High label head Samo Sound Boy, and newly formed supergroup Jack U consisting of none other than Skrillex and Diplo himself. With something to accomodate the tastes of any and all music fans alike, a true sense of an actual 'Block Party' can be felt when Mad Decent comes rolling into town.

Of course there is always more than just a music that makes an awesome Block Party. Other activities include ping-pong and foosball tables, Mad Decent t-shirt making, and the always fierce Dodgeball tournament. Don't forget about the hottest food trucks in the area will be cooking up all of the best snacks for you to munch on while you rage!

With LED Presents and PUMA teaming up with Mad Decent this year, expect the finale of the Mad Decent Block Party Tour to be nothing short of the craziest block party you have ever been a part of. Tickets are currently on sale and can be purchased HERE.

BRAZZABELLE x gLAdiator - No Scrubs Remix

LED's resident Brazzabelle is back at it again, this time teaming up with Los Angeles trap duo gLAdiator to put their spin on the classic TLC track 'No Scrubs'. Upon immediately listening to this mix of the throwback 90's jam, the smooth and soulful filled vibes along with the added trap snares shows the meshed influences from both parties collectively. A great use of the original vocals keeps the heart and soul of this track while spicing it up with some of today's latest music trends. Don't be surprised if this gem slips into some summertime pool party sets over the next few months.
