"Acid Phase" (Original Mix) - Stefan Dabruck

Dabruck's latest "Acid Phase" takes a wicked spin on the normal Electro House sound, ensnaring us in extended build-ups and breakdowns. The tension in this track is remarkable which makes it no wonder that DJs like Markus Schulz are throwing this recently released record into the peak time portions of their sets. Unlike many of the tracks being put out in this style today, this original is more about the edgy rifts before and after the release than the climax itself. Grab your copy today!

Out now on Beatport!

Preview: "Spell" - Leon Bolier

I can guarantee that you'll cast any doubts aside as to how powerful this new track is once you hear it on high wattage subwoofers. Though Leon Bolier has soared to prominent rankings in international DJ polls for his Trance compositions, he is after all a classically trained musician, and today he's here to make Electro House his bitch. Turn up the decibels on this frenetic encantation and soak in it before you hear it take over arena floors.

"Around The Block" (Kredo Remix) - Pretty Lights

Swiss producer Kredo is here to slap a smile right on your face in his latest remix for Pretty Lights' biggest track off of A Color Map of The Sun. Tightening the tempo and adding in plenty of glitch and breaks transforms Talib Kweli's sleepy summertime jam into a vibrant and uptempo celebration of optimism and life. Grab the free download!

Electric Zoo Saturday Preview: Brodinski vs. Gesaffelstein @ Riverside

While DJ duos are more than plentiful in this industry, it's truly refreshing to see two individual acts who seem to be in the midst of a perpetual face-off, making Brodinski and Gesaffelstein the ones to look out for at this year's Electric Zoo Fool's Gold Clubhouse. With intricately unique sounds that are impossible to categorize, these two have played everything from progressive house, to darker hip-hop inspired beats.

Louis Brodinski, known only by his family name, comes fresh from France, bringing with him European waves of Techno and Electro into the American scene. Following the launch of his own record label, Bromance, Brodinski has been releasing hit after hit such as "Let the Beat Control Your Body" and "Dance Like Machines." With remixes featuring the work of Skrillex and Nero, Brodinski has had no trouble quickly assimilating into American dance territory. Gesaffelstein, who also hails from the lovely land of France, could been seen as Brodinski's greatest enemy, but instead became the perfect complement. Having a repertoire of remixing the likes of Lana Del Rey and Kanye West, Gesaffelstein is about to give Brodinski a serious run for his money in the form of a slapping set that will have our ears oozing.

For those of you who have not heard of these two before, they're about to make a name for their unorthodox sound once again with the crowd on Randall's Island. I've seen a lot of back-to-back and face-off DJ performances, and I assure you this will be of the highest caliber. Exactly what will we be in store for this year at EZoo? You’ll only find out if you're Riverside at 7:50. See you there!

Electric Zoo Friday Preview: Dog Blood (Skrillex & Boys Noize) @ Riverside

For those of you who suffered anxiety attacks when you didn't see Skrillex on the artist list, have no fear, he will be at Electric Zoo 2013 alongside co-conspirator Boys Noize, and better than ever. Boyz Noise and Skrilly's work on side project Dog Blood has propelled the duo to the top of OWLSA's roster, as well as to the top of my must-sees in the lineup this year. Deviating from the commercial success of their two individual names, Dog Blood has become a sanctuary for both to get back to their roots and plant new ones, exploring a different genre that calls more upon style than strict adherence to form. Rooted in both Electro and Techno, Dog Blood's style is not afraid to dig deeper into the grungier sounds of dubstep that allowed them to be propelled to such heights in the first place. Whatever you want to call it, the pair's sound is distinct from other artists of equal stature. 

Since their formation in 2012, Dog Blood has come a long way, even from their not-so-humble beginnings as a duo. Their very first single, "Next Order," very quickly made it to the top of Beatport's charts. After a very busy solo period from both Skrillex and Boyz Noise towards the end of 2012, Dog Blood emerged from its hiatus to throw down the house at the first weekend of Ultra 2013. From there they casually released a few singles including casually releasing a few singles including the smash success "Wild For The Night" remix for A$AP Rocky. Since then, they've played Coachella, EDC Vegas, and Glastonbury Festival among others, and now the pinnacle of New York's electronic culture: Electric Zoo festival. These two are no strangers to Randall's Island, but we hope you're all primed for what happens when they come together this Friday. See you 8:45 at Riverside!
