Track of the Day: "Fireworks" (Burning Up) - Dillon Francis

After Dillon Francis released the preview of his newest bootleg, "Fireworks," I’m sure many of you were eagerly awaiting the full track. Well, the wait is over! He finally released this bad boy only a few hours ago! Fireworks has a lively jungle Electro-House beat with moving vocal cuts! Is it hot in here or is it just me? This track has got me burning up!

Out Today on Beatport!

"Where Did I Go" - MONSTA (Dillon Francis & Kill Paris Remix)

It seems like everybody wants a piece of MONSTA recently. First Skrillex and Nero, now Dillion Francis and Kill Paris take a stab at remixing his gargantuan track "Where Did I Go." Francis and Paris transform this airy electronic pop tune into a hard hitting head bouncer! Definitely a track you want to play to get the party started. This one really caught my attention, so I'm excited to hear the rest of the new EP and for the remixes to keep coming. The EP releases today on Skrillex's OWSLA!

"Bootleg Fireworks" (Burning Up) - Dillon Francis (Preview)

One word for you all: moombahton. If you are unsure of what this newer, and often underrated genre is then you are about to get real familiar. Today Dillon Francis blessed fans' ears, but left them even more anxious, with a preview to his song "Bootleg Fireworks," set to drop October 30th via Calvin HarrisFly Eye Records. There’s no getting around that when this single is officially released, it’s going to be a massive hit. Stay tuned for more releases from Dillon in the near future including a track with Calvin himself "Here 2 China," featured on the upcoming album 18 Months. Dillon starts his US tour November 4th, so don't forget to check dates coming to a city near you. The Wet and Reckless Tour speaks for itself!

The Best of Electric Zoo 2012: Live Set Downloads

All the animals are still roaming wild after this weekend at the Electric Zoo. We were absolutely blown away by stellar performances from nearly every artist we saw this weekend, so we're happy to present this list of live sets from this past weekend. The list will be updated as more streaming sets become available. And if you were at the festival you may have seen Brooke Allan taking your photos, we have a lot coming real soon so watch out for them, they'll be posted within the next few days on the Event Photos section and on our Facebook page (so make sure to tag yourselves)!

Dillon Francis

D-Francis brought the tent to the ground with his grimey Jungle Moombah beats Friday. It was a hot and sweaty late afternoon but not even 90+ degrees could keep NYC ravers out of the Riverside tents for one of the weekend's grindiest sets.

Ferry Corsten

You could just tell by the look on Ferry's face towards the end of the set on Friday that he knew he had killed it! Playing one of the most high-energy Trance sets we've ever seen, the set was only overshadowed by Above & Beyond. Watch out for our interview with him coming soon!

Above & Beyond

Whether you're a fan of Trance music or not, A&B are life-changers. Tony and Jono played two absolutely magnificent sets, one Friday for Group Therapy at Hilltop and one Saturday Main Stage to close the night. The English trio is known for their moving mixes, and I can safely say that everyone from die-hard Anjunabeats fans to people who had never heard them before were blown away by their sets. I have never seen anyone cry at an EDM show, but these two made it happen - two nights in a row with confetti raining down from the sky. The highlight for me was their closing with Oceanlab's "On a Good Day" Saturday night. Absolutely breathtaking, as always. 

Tiësto

The Godfather played an amazing set Main Stage Sunday main stage dropping countless new tracks such as Dyro & Amba Shepherd's "Sky High". Tiesto kept the crowd moving with "Maximal Crazy" and other smash-hits, it was a total shame he didn't get to close the festival. 

Diplo

Our boy D-D-Diplo got dirty last night with one of the best sets we've ever seen him play, and with 3D visuals! Dropping countless originals and new Major Lazer tracks, and grimey Moombah remixes of Rick Ross, to Kanye, to Azealia Banks, D kept the crowd grinding sweaty and dirty for an entire hour-and-a-half. The highlight of the set was of course when "Express Yourself" dropped and our very own Anne Chang ("Trisha Takanawa") was escorted on stage to twerk that bootay. One of the best sets of the entire weekend.

"Money Makin'" - A-Trak & Dillon Francis (Oliver Twizt Trap Mix)

Oliver Twizt puts the trap in our hands with a remix of "Money Makin," an already amazing A-Trak and Dillon Francis collaboration. OT veers away from his typical electro house style with this track, enabling him to tap into his inner OG. Twizt implements a lot of hi-hats and playful drum work on the breakdowns to add color to the hard bassline, while preserving a lot of the original indie and glitch hop leads that suggest a Fool’s Goldproduction. Oliver's recently been involved with eminent Dutch producer Laidback Luke, as he collaborated with Sandro Silva on “Gladiator,” which was released on Luke’s imprint Mixmash Records. He was also featured in the stellar Super You & Me show that LBL headlined on Governor’s Island in NYC. Twizt is now showing greater prowess as a producer as he broadens his electro horizons to the Traposphere. Watch out for this one, it's sure to make waves!
