Axwell

axwell

Axel Christofer Hedfors from Stockholm, Sweden is one of my favorite House producers and goes by stage name Axwell.  Not only is he the driving force behind Swedish House Mafia, but he also slays on the DJ decks.  I first saw him live at the NCMF in Chicago this past year and his set was quite amazing.  A great house set, he kept the energy high and made me forget about wanting to see SHM.  He currently owns his own label and was voted #12 in DJ Mag’s Top 100 of the year 2011.  Below are some of my favorite youtube videos/songs from the man.  Keeping it short and sweet for today, hopefully we can get back into posting more frequently.

Enjoy!

Nervo

Nervo

Liv and Mim Nervo are two Australian DJ’s who have started to make waves in the EDM scene.  I first saw these two sisters play at EDC Las Vegas’ Discovery stage this summer, bringing in one of the best sets on that particular stage.  They have many skills being songwriters, producers, and artists along with DJing.  NERVO has been touring a ton as of late, playing big profile shows with the likes of Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears, not to mention even bigger festivals as I mentioned EDC, Tomorrowland, Ultra, and Lollapalooza.  They recently have become DJ residents at the Wynn Hotel Group in Las Vegas and they have even been hitting up the one and only Ibiza.  This duo has quite the background writing songs as they have done so for Kylie Minogue, Ke$ha, and the Pussycat Dolls.  They have some great collaborations with Nicky RomeroNorman Doray, and Hook N Sling.  Bringing in some epic house music that is so much fun to listen to when raging festivals! Give it up to these two sisters as they absolutely kill it! Banging out that house!

Nasty Track Presents!

Whoo, still feeling that Thanksgiving turkey and haven’t been keeping up with the recent tunes during the holidays so I figured now is a great time do a plug for our first (with more to come) Nasty Track show! If you’re in Denver, CO next Saturday Dec. 1 we’d love to see you there! Hosted at the Larimer Lounge, an awesome venue (http://www.larimerlounge.com/event_details.cfm?blogid=957), we’ve got some great local acts lined up. It’s also me and Ames’ birthday party so it’s definitely going to be a rager (champagne anyone?). We’ve got a wide variety of genres playing and we literally spend hours a day searching for new music so you know this is going to have a ridiculous playlist – plus we’re giving away mp3 CDs of all our favorite featured NastyTrack tunes. You can buy tickets online at the website or at the door. If you get them from us though they’re only 5 bucks, sweet. Get stoked for the headliner – Snap Crackle Drop. This slightly ridiculous sounding name is the side project of Gizmo and Fun Factory. It’s a unique EDM performance of the duo that uses 2 computers, 4 turntables, 2 effects boards, and 3 mixers that definitely looks and feels more like a jam than a DJ set. Hopefully we’ll see you there and come say “what’s up” if you make it!
