A romantic deep house track right in time for Valentine's Day.
Nora En Pure (real name Daniela Niederer), the South African-Swiss queen of future house, is starting 2019 off with an uplifting new track titled "We Found Love" featuring vocals by Danish/Egyptian singer Ashibah. Need a track to show that special someone how you feel? This is the jam for you.
The track, which was released on Spinnin' Records, opens with Ashibah's soulful vocals and delicate strings. Niederer has perfected the art of melodic house with this one. As the verse progresses, the filter opens on the synth and the sound gets brighter and brighter leading into the more driving section with the additions of pulsing repetitive strings and a clap sample. The instrumentation builds towards a four-on the floor drop accompanied by catchy string stabs. The second verse keeps the kick groove, making the song flow nicely altogether. With immense character and emotion, the track is a real home run for both artists.
With her globally adored release "Tears In Your Eyes" garnering well over 13 million streams on Spotify alone, Niederer's latest addition to her back catalog delves into familiar territory. Having experimented with deeper, club-focused sounds in her nature-inspired Polynesia EP last year, she effortlessly showcases her versatility by floating back up to a lighter style of dance music with "We Found Love." Gearing up to get back on tour, Niederer has already been announced for some of the most important dates in the global dance music diary, including her 2019 return to Coachella and Ultra Music Festival.
Ashibah’s first big collaboration was in 2013 with Kolombo, laying down vocals on his "Wade of Water" remix that ended up on all charts that summer. Over the years, she has collaborated with artists like Purple Disco Machine, Robosonic, Sharam Jey and Jean Bacarreza. This year her career is accelerating with several releases and her own EP series signed this fall.FOLLOW NORA EN PURE:
NAMM showcases the latest and greatest in music tech
Ask most fans of dance music these days who has the most advanced stage design, and you’ll hear the name Eric Prydz pop up a lot. The Swedish producer has built up significant hype around his shows thanks to his innovative EPIC (that stands for Eric Prydz In Concert) stage designs, and he’s going to take it one further this year at Tomorrowland.
The annual Belgian festival will play host to the world debut of Prydz’ new stage, HOLOSPHERE. The design placing Prydz inside a spherical form at the center of a 360 degree 3D hologram — the technology for Prydz’ vision didn’t exist at the time of conceptualizing it, so his team developed the proprietary technology themselves.
Eric Prydz says, “My team and I had a vision that has taken over 2 years to develop. It is now so exciting to be able to announce this, and show you the next chapter of EPIC.”

There aren’t many festivals that can announce tickets on sale without even announcing headliners, let alone a full lineup. There are even fewer that can consistently back it up year after year so that fans don’t regret their decision to buy early. Paradiso is one of those festivals.

Dr. Fresch inaugurates his G house and electro-focused label Prescription Records with the debut compilation.
In partnership with Insomniac Music Group, Dr. Fresch's brand new record label, Prescription Records, has just debuted it's very first release. The wonderfully curated nine-track compilation titled The Remedy: Volume 1 features 12 highly talented artists such as Dr. Fresch himself as well as BIJOU, TYPE3, Tony Romera, Gerry Gonza and more.
Long recognized as a trendsetter and leading tastemaker in the world of G house, Dr. Fresch has now taken a definitive "next step-up" from showcasing his favorite new music in his live performances. He now has the ability to grant these talented artists a platform to amplify their brands and share their music with the world.
In Dr. Fresch's own words:
“Prescription Records is, in every sense, an extension of my artist brand as Dr. Fresch. I’m working with new artists whose music not only fits my style as a producer and DJ, but new artists who I see developing truly groundbreaking sounds in 2019. The bar is set so high for electronic music at the moment; I’m searching to find and promote producers whose sound design is absolutely unique yet still dance floor accessible. The Remedy Vol. 1 is a cohesive project that showcases the label vision from a dozen different artists. These producers pull elements of G house, bass house and electro to solidify a sound I’ve been developing for years - that’s 'The Prescription'.”
Long before he even fully developed his artist brand, Dr. Fresch began his music career in 2012 with the launch of his former label, the indie dance imprint Prep School Recordings - where he launched debut EPs from artists like Louis The Child, SNBRN and Loud Luxury.
Following the launch of Prep School, Dr. Fresch began his career as a touring artist after winning Insomniac’s Discovery Project competition in 2013. Dr. Fresch went on to release music on prominent dance labels including OWSLA, Ministry of Sound, and Insomniac Records.
His mix series aptly called “The Prescription” on Sirius XM is now on its 58th installment.View the original article to see embedded media.

DJ Moodymann says he was outside of his own property when he had an aggressive run in with Detroit police. The violent video below, which is making its rounds online, shows officers screaming at him while pointing an assault rifle straight at his face.
Moodymann, real name Kenny Dixon Jr., claims he went to jail despite being on his own property with his own set of keys. It’s unclear what went on before or after the video clip was taken, but any way you look at this, it’s seriously disturbing.
In his since removed post, Moodymann explains what happened from his perspective…
“HP police came n (MY BACKYARD)demanding proof of ownership and this is how they reacted,” he wrote. “(Went 2 jail again)charged me 4 Breaking and entering on my own property even though I had keys.what u can’t c is 9 other officers pointing there AR15 directly at my head …next time just pull the MF trigger let’s get this shit over with (I’m tired) I’m so tired.”
The Black Madonna, among others have spoken out about the incident since seeing the footage…
Kenny is a great man. He’s a man of peace. We have to stop terrorizing black men. The sound of his voice is something that will haunt. I’m so glad they didn’t shoot. Thank god they didn’t, but fuck this.
Again, black lives matter. Black lives matter.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike provide your new fatality sound track.
Mortal Kombat, one of the most storied franchises in gaming, has just released a new trailer - and dance music fans are likely to recognize the soundtrack. As heard in the video, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (DVLM) and Bassjackers are officially part of the lethal sounds on the forthcoming Mortal Kombat 11. The game is scheduled for release in April of 2019.
As we reported recently with the release of "Repeat After Me" DVLM spent the vast majority of last year exploring a wide range of new sounds and genres. The Greek-Belgian duo are still seeing dividends on this exploratory chapter. Their trapped-out 2018 collaboration with Bassjackers titled "Jungle" was selected for the Mortal Kombat 11 trailer.
More broadly however, the Belgian brothers continue to create opportunities for themselves outside the traditional dance music arena. Dimitri Vegas has broken into film. Recently he voiced Peter Parker in the Dutch adaptation of Spider Man: Into the Spiderverse. The duo also appeared in and provided the soundtrack to the 2018 film Patser.
While Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will continue to dominate the main stage, the duo stands to experience further growth and lateral movement into parallel entertainment fields.FOLLOW DIMITRI VEGAS & LIKE MIKE:

Paul van Dyk has been awarded $12 million for the life-changing injuries he sustained during his 2016 near-fatal stage fall.

The "Gods of Rap" celebrate the anniversaries of their classic albums
Nearly three years after Paul van Dyk‘s near-death stage fall at ASOT 750, the DJ has been court granted over $12.5 million from event organizers following a lawsuit.
van Dyk suffered a brain injury and damage to his spine as a result of the nasty fall. Thankfully, his road to recovery only lasted a brisk three months, including surgery and physical therapy. However, the serious fall had a lasting impact on van Dyk and his career.
During his A State of Trance show in February 2016, van Dyk stood on top of the stage design. While it’s common practice for DJs to jump on their booth, speakers, or the stage structure to build hype, nobody forewarned him that the stage was unstable.
The judgement handed down awarded van Dyk $12,588,643.45 total for medical bills and lost profits.
According to a report, the breakdown included $2 million for future medical expenses, $1.2 million for lost profits over the past two years, and $2.475 million for prospected future loses over the next 10 years. Plus, extra damages.
Recently, van Dyk opened up about the incident and his relationship with ASOT. “I want everyone involved in some way in production and booking to shine a light on the safety of their events,” he said.Paul van Dyk’s Stage Fall

After years of waiting, Kingdom Hearts 3 is finally out everywhere January 29. (It releases January 25 in Asia.) In anticipation of the full game, we also finally get the full version of the Utada Hikaru & Skrillex collaboration “Face My Fears” that was teased in the game trailer last December.
Fans were able to get a good enough taste of the full track from the aforementioned trailer, but nothing really beats a complete Skrillex tune. The complete version more than doubles the version in the trailer, fleshing out the tune with even more future bass goodness.
And aside from all the disappointment that Skrillex hasn’t been putting out much heavy bass music lately, it seems he’s really perfected his new sound. It sounds absolutely brilliant, especially with Hikaru’s inimitable vocals. From the vocal chops to that instantly recognizable snare, Skrillex’s brand is all over this.
You can listen to both the English and Japanese versions of “Face My Fears” on Spotify below, as well as new tracks “Don’t Think Twice” and “Chikai.” Note: only “Face My Fears” is with Skrillex.

EDM mega hit "Save The World" by Swedish House Mafia gets a phenomenal reimagining from rapidly rising artist KLOUD.
Who is KLOUD? As of yet, we have no further information as to the identity of this exciting new artist so we’re left with only the insights that can be gleaned from his music. Thus far, KLOUD has taken the industry by storm with a series of massive remixes for the likes of Porter Robinson, Illenium, San Holo and now Swedish House Mafia.
As an homage to the reunion of iconic trio, KLOUD has crafted his own reimagining of the classic dance hit, “Save the World.” Comprised of eerie synths, vibrating melodies, and pulsating chord patterns, KLOUD's latest heavy hitter builds into a set of hauntingly intense drops that lure listeners into his futuristic, cyberpunk-inspired reality.
To accompany this release, KLOUD has also put together an awesome music video that gives us further insight into the man behind the helmet. Even though we can only see a digitized version of KLOUD in the video, the rich textures and flashing background lights evoke a surreal, haunting vibe. Designed to emphasize the very dark and avant-garde aesthetic for which KLOUD has become known, “Save The World” takes us deep into a computerized rabbit hole with no end in sight.
