Purari & Centineo- Charge (Original Mix)

March is a fun time of the year in dance music for both producers and fans alike. Whether you’re in Miami for Ultra or not it’s a prime opportunity for artists to preview and sample their upcoming releases to the masses as they look to get a head start on capturing a buzz for their own sounds of the summer. Well it’s not even March yet and already Purari and Centineo have released some heavy duty music. ‘Charge’ is what those in the biz would call a “fucking banger”. The track shines the whole way through from it’s hard hitting drop to it’s well crafted breakdown, only to hit you in the face with that violent drop once again. Whether he’s behind the decks in Hoboken or in the studio producing, Purari is most certainly a young talent to watch and this release with Centineo adds to a hot start in 2017. ‘Charge’ is available now on Loko Sound Records.

Hardwell Goes Big For 300th Podcast

Whether you’re a fan of electronic music or not, you probably have heard of Hardwell. If you are a fan of the genre, you probably already know that he is one of the most influential figures in the industry. From running his own label to headlining some of the biggest dance music events in the world to producing monster hits, Robbert van de Corput’s resume is stacked. Perhaps one of his biggest contributions to dance music is his weekly radio show, Hardwell On Air. Started in 2011, Hardwell on air has been a showcase of musical talent ranging from well known acts to bedroom producers, spanning from progressive to electro to hardstyle to deep house to whatever the hell Hardwell feels like playing.

In celebration of his 300th episode, Hardwell (in classic Hardwell fashion) pulled out all the stops and delivered a special live podcast straight from Amsterdam. The episode, an hour longer than usual, featured a string of live sets from different artists including his close friend and fellow Revealed Recordings artist Kill The Buzz and electro house heavyweights Blasterjaxx. The event also included special guests as well as live interviews from fellow big time producers who wanted to stop by and pay their respects. Lots of new and upcoming music too, definitely want to check this out if you enjoy electronic music. Here’s to Hardwell and all his contributions to dance music, with plenty more inevitably to come.

Fellow Degenerates Rejoice: HQ Plans Its Comebacky

May was already starting to start to look really promising. We got Mayweather/ Pacquiao, Djais frolicking with the guidos, EDC with the girls with daddy issues, and now it’s about to reach a whole new level of ignorance. As you may have heard, Revel Casino has been purchased by Florida investor Glenn Straub and it’s been finally finalized, donezo kudoro.

Allow me to provide a brief history lesson. HQ was the club inside the Revel Casino. HQ was the best club in AC by a landslide. It’s where the miscreants jumped around in general admission without a care in the world and where the rich romped around flaunting their wealth without any real regard for anyone or anything in VIP. It’s where the top DJs spun in AC, Tiesto, Afrojack and even Paul Oakenfold all took the decks there. It was 21 to enter but once you entered you could act like a fucking 12 year old.

Well, word on the street is that despite no date set for the actual casino to open, HQ (which isn’t owned by Revel, it’s owned by the same company that runs Hakkasan in Vegas) the club is set to open on May 15. Fuck. Yes. First we get news that Taco Bell could deliver then HQ opening back up in May!? What’s next, Chick Fil A is open on Sundays? HQ also has a day counterpart called HQ Beach Club which is an outdoor day party spot, if that’s going to be open for this summer then we’re in fucking business (literally). So yeah, right now it’s looking like May 15th as a start date for HQ, we’ll keep you posted as always with any new developments. In the meantime, it’s time to lose some weight, morals, and standards for what’s shaping up to be a raucous Summer ’15.
