I am so happy for my friends Nick Waters, David Hopperman and Automann that joined the ranks of Afrojack’s Wall Recordings for enigmatic debut EP Kind of Trashy. Leading with ultimate force with the chugging title track, its infectious vocal assets and momentous peak time energy make for a definitive first impression on the previously Dutch-dominated label. With steadfast rhythmic grandeur and impressive lead play throughout, ‘Kind of Trashy’ certainly sets the bar to an all time high for the newfound French ensemble. Following with a more typical outing of Dutch hallmarks than its predecessor, ‘Make Up Your Mind’ is a solid rising outing of distorted melodic leads and tangible Electro stylings that compliments the trio’s accession to the ranks of this esteemed Spinnin offshoot for 2012.
The ‘Kind Of Trashy’ EP will be released on April 2nd via Wall Recordings.
Future release on Wall Recordings. release date 2012.04.02

David Guetta is the happiest man on Earth, or so it would appear after watching his new documentary, Nothing but the Beat. This feature-length film takes viewers into the ever-so-exciting life of the renowned DJ and producer, following him everywhere in his private jet to the largest stages around the world, all saturated with diehard fans. Aside from the awkward transitions between scenes, this is the most professional documentaries made about EDM thus far — it simply blows Take One out of the water. It also tells an exceptionally inspiring story, showing how a club DJ from Paris merged an ostracized genre (house) with pop, creating an ambiguous category of music that the world not only recognizes now, but is completely infatuated with. Read on to find out more.
Guetta explains how he dreamt of becoming a resident club DJ as a kid, but didn’t have the money to buy his own turntables. He would go to the record stores and just stare at the equipment for hours, hoping that someday he would be able to turn his dream into reality and become a DJ. When his math teacher would call home and tell his parents that he wasn’t doing very well, he would explain “but I don’t need to know math, I want to be a DJ!” All odds were against him, but not only did Guetta soon become a household name in his hometown of Paris, he went on to become one of the most skilled DJs in the entire world.
The film also reveals Guetta’s true charisma — bursting with love, happiness, and drive. It’s evident after watching his interactions with other artists, DJs, and even his wife, Cathy, that he is an all-around cheerful person with a good heart. He feeds off the energy of his fans and thrives when producing hits. Nobody had a bad thing to say about him and we were left in an infectiously good mood when the movie was over.
Unlike the EDC Experience screening, the Nothing but the Beat screening we attended in LA was very organized and well-planned, not to mention flashcrowd-free. Viewers were not only able to take photos on a green screen outside of the theater, but could view them on the provided iPads, and even print photos to take home. (They were later posted on his Facebook page.) These weren’t the only party-favors we got to take home, as the Egyptian Theater handed out free popcorn and soda to all viewers, along with stickers and glow-in-the-dark wristbands.
The best part of the night, however, was when the man-of-the-hour walked into the theater and did a Q&A with the audience. Guetta told us that he’s not completely finished with the film but was eager to show it while in Los Angeles. He also explained the reasoning behind his double-disc album — he wanted his fans to hear both sides of his talent. The more pop side features many well-known artists like Will.I.Am and Chris Brown, and his dirty electro roots get to shine on the second. It’s safe to say that Guetta will forever push the limits and blend genres of music to create new and exciting sounds. If you haven’t bought his new record yet, grab it below.

Pete Tong in last night’s issue of the Essential Selection show on BBC Radio 1 in front of a whooping two million listeners, the long awaited Alive by Dirty South and Thomas Gold come into the spotlight as a piece hard to equal.

Since the launch of his uplifting remix of My Feeling in mid 2010, numerous hits such as Lose Control and the remix of Back To The Dancefloor have immersed Deniz Koyu yet further into the House scene. Having just unveiled a new, acid-influenced tune named Hydra, to be released soon on Joia Records, Koyu falls into line under Funkerman and Fedde Le Grand’s Flamingo Recordings banner, joining in with the vigorous Tung! single alongside acclaimed anthems like Autosave, Running and Diamonds In The Sky. Following a long-time support and playlisting from label owner Fedde himself, Tung is another anthem to, most likely, get championed by the Dutch superstar from now on. With support flying in from Kaskade, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello among others, this heavyweight is now available!
