Lost Frequencies Releases Tomorrowland 2017 Mainstage Liveset!

lost frequencies tomorrowland 2017

Lost Frequencies – Tomorrowland 2017 – As Tomorrowland‘s Amicorum Spectaculum opened its gates to record-breaking crowds for its inaugural weekend of 2017, not only did the insane production that the festival has become known to dazzle for, wow crowds beyond belief, but a whole host of electronic music royalty also descended onto the regal town of Boom. From track premieres, special edits saved just for the fields of Tomorrow, as well as multi-faceted mash-ups, the chart-topping, platinum artist Lost Frequencies seemed to capture the attention of those on-site like no other.

Hosting his own Lost Frequencies & Friends stage allowed the producer to perform amongst a cherry-picked bill of top-tier artists including  AxwellFatboy Slim and Sigala, that also led to an official festival road-block as the arena became so packed, before his mainstage set that directly followed after David Guetta on the Sunday of the event in a prime-time slot, became one of the most talked-about solo sets of the year from the Belgian prodigy himself.

Now, presenting one of his only official live sets available online after his hugely well-received Less Is More Lotto Arena ShowLost Frequencies presents a shimmering main stage live set that only further cements his status as a wonderkid for the next generation of music makers. Merging together bombastic bass, melodic flutters of self-proclaimed “indie dance” and stadium-worthy electro, Lost Frequencies dazzled during his third year at Tomorrowland, proving to only get better with age and maturing his sound, yet still retaining an injection of fun and feel-good vibes.

Axwell & Ingrosso Finally Drop Kid Ink Collab I Love You

Fans knew a big pop moment was coming as soon as Axwell & Ingrosso teased their Kid Ink collab at Sunburn Festival. From those first moments, we knew “I Love You” was a heat-seeking missile, aimed right at radio. It leads with very The Verve-esque string chords (via “Bittersweet Symphony”), over a top 40 hip-hop beat.

“We wanted to just go heavy in a fresh sound to start 2017 and we think we achieved that,” the super-producers are quoted as saying in a press release. “And collaborating with Kid Ink was something we’d wanted to do for a while.”

Kid Ink drops his verses over a wonky bass melody, and serves some classic girl-crazy bars.

“When I first heard the demo, I loved the vibe and melody right off the top,” the rapper is quoted in the press release. “I felt like if I added some lyrics to it, then it could really be something special. I’m super happy with how this collaboration came out.”

Now that it’s out, the future of “I Love You” is all on the fans. Is it a critical hit? Check it out for yourself.

AXWELL Λ INGROSSO SHARE SNIPPET OF ‘I LOVE YOU’ FEATURING KID INK, OUT FRIDAY

Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s latest single, ‘I Love You’, is released this Friday (10th February), and the duo have shared the first official snippet of the track via their Twitter. You can hear it below.

The former Swedish House Mafia duo collaborated with LA rapper/producer Kid Ink on the track, which they premiered at India’s Sunburn Festival on Friday 30th December.

Last month, Axwell Λ Ingrosso revealed they will headline their first NYC warehouse show at Depot 52 on Saturday 18th March.

That was before the Swedish super-duo announced that they will return to London on Sunday 28th May for a huge blow-out at Victoria Park.

Axwell Dishes On The Origin Of His Name & More In VH1 Interview

Axwell ile ilgili görsel sonucu

Sven Axel Christofer Hedfors, better known for this stage name as Axwell, has been an iconic presence in the dance music world for over two decades. After producing unforgettable tracks with world-renowned Swedish House Mafia and now one half of the duo of Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Axwell has definitely engraved his name into EDM history. Featured in the latest episode of VH1’s Inside Access, Axwell shares with us the origin of his name and even drops some new updates on his upcoming track.

Axwell has been electrifying crowds all over the world but in his latest interview with VH1, he speaks out about the special bond that he shares with his fans in India as well as his love for Indian food.

When asked about how he came up with his stage name, he stated:

“Well you know, in school, we just gave each other names, nick names all the time. And mine actually evolved from when I started to make music. My real name is Axel, so it just came from there. Axel, Axelars, Uxel and then it went to Maxwell House for a little bit and then it just came down to Axwell.”

He later went on to state that if he were not a DJ, he would have been a computer nerd of some kind, as it was his initial passion for computers that first introduced him to the music industry.

Axwell also shed some light on his newest track entitled “I Love You”. The track is produced with his long time partner, Sebastian Ingrosso and was released this Friday, January 27th.

AXWELL REVEALS THE HUMBLE ORIGIN OF HIS NAME

Axwell has enjoyed an absolutely ridiculous career, from being part of dance music’s legendary Swedish House Mafia, continuing as Axwell Λ Ingrosso, and even just kicking ass as a solo artist. Still, throughout all the fame, he remains a humble guy that happened to have stumbled into fame from a love of nerding out with computers.

Of course, having a cool moniker to back your music doesn’t hurt, and “Axwell” sounds every bit as vicious as the progressive anthems he churns out. However, the story of how Axwell came to be has its roots in a quaint household coffee company.

“Well you know, in school, we just gave each other names, nick names all the time. And mine actually evolved from when I started to make music. My real name is Axel, so it just came from there. Axel, Axelars, Uxel and then it went to Maxwell House for a little bit and then it just came down to Axwell.”

1001tracklists’ Top 10 Producers of 2016

1001tracklists’ ‘Top 100 Producers’ ranking ile ilgili görsel sonucu

1001tracklists, an online database of EDM tracks, podcasts, live sets, and unreleased IDs, has revealed its ‘Top 100 producers’ list for the year 2016.  However, there is a major difference in the ranking parameters of this particular list as compared to more traditional counterparts. Unlike most lists, including DJ Mag’s ‘Top 100 DJs,’ which use a public voting system to judge and rank the DJs, 1001tracklists’ ranking system “reflects the cumulative amount of unique DJ support for tracks played in 2016.”

Essentially, the site checks the number of unique DJs who support a particular artist by featuring the artist’s music, adding up each individual DJ who has supported an artist to give the DJ their score. The artists are then ranked in ascending order of score. This results in a more impartial way of ranking DJs as compared to a fan based poll.

Furthermore, the list even allows viewers to see each artist’s most popular songs, simply by clicking on a tab next to the artist’s name.

Check out the Top 10 below and view the entire list here.

DISCOVER THE REAL NAMES OF YOUR FAVORITE DJS

DISCOVER THE REAL NAMES OF YOUR FAVORITE DJS

Did you know that Calvin Harris isn’t really named Calvin Harris? How about Bob Sinclair (Christopher Le Friant)? These seemingly real names are actually pseudonyms for some of our favorite DJs, and they’re incredibly common. DJs rarely use their real name because they want their branding to match their sound. So someone was born Fire-Penguin Disco Panda (yeah, that’s a real thing), then you’re probably going to have to come up with a cool name.

Below, we’ve taken the stage names of 12 DJs and looked up their real names so that you don’t have to. A lot of these we already knew, some of the Swedish ones are hard for Americans to pronounce, but we actually had no idea DJ Snake’s name was William.
