Kaskade is back with another one of his infamous bootlegs, and again, it is sublime. This time he takes the ethereal vocals from Something Something (featuring Zip Zip Through The Night) off of his newest full length, "Atmosphere", and combines it ever so majestically with Mogui's pulsating track, Champs. The result is brilliant. As per usual, this bootleg (and countless others) are available for free via Kaskade's Soundcloud page.

German sensation Moguai has just created quite the powerhouse anthem. This is a massive track with a huge drop to boot. Featuring vocals for Niles Mason (of Louder Than Words fame), this is a fist raised high, march on kind of track that could motivate a sloth to war.
Can't Stop Now is out now on Beatport via Spinnin' Records, and is his first solo release on the label. I'll let the track do the rest of the talking for itself.
Holy Hell! What a heater, and with so many parties involved. Trap masters Heroes X Villains teamed up with another trap (although expanding his horizons) God, DJ Carnage to give Mammoth a good once over. What originally was a soothing trancey progressive track, is now a deep, bass heavy track with a lot more umph packed in. Somehow though, it still has a very chill vibe like the original.
Stream Mammoth below, and make sure to grab your copy when it drops August 23 via Spinnin' Records.

uicy Beach 2013 Phase One Lineup announced — Thursday, March 21, 2013 at the world famous Nikki Beach
Robbie and Monica Rivera announce today the phase one lineup for Juicy Beach – taking place Thursday, March 21, 2013 at the world famous Nikki Beach during WMC / MMW. Juicy Beach is always one of the standout attractions amongst a week celebrating the global dance scene and the 2013 event is no exception. The first in a series of line-up reveals leading up to the party, we’re now able to announce that in addition to a performance from Robbie Rivera, Juicy Beach will include sets from Bob Sinclar, Cosmic Gate, Moguai, Manufactured Superstars, Nari & Milani, Stefano Noferini, Manuel De La Mare and Federico Scavo who will play alongside all star talent to be announced in the coming weeks.
Since 2005, Robbie Rivera and his wife and business partner, Monica, have been the driving forces behind the world-renown Juicy Beach party at WMC in Miami each March. The 17-hour events at Nikki Beach Club attract a cast of over 5500 clubbers as well as A-list DJs, and the party has gone on to become one of the week's most successful events. From 2006 to 2008 Juicy Ibiza parties at Amnesia (sponsored by Armani Exchange) and Privilege in Ibiza & Catwalk in Barcelona welcomed over 6,000 clubbers. To date Juicy Beach has featured a who’s who of DJ talent including Kaskade, Deadmau5, Benny Benassi, Axwell, Sander van Doorn, Steve Angello, Mark Knight, Dirty South, Sebastian Ingrosso, Laidback Luke, Joachim Garraud, Thomas Gold and George Acosta, among others.
To coincide with Juicy Beach 2013, Robbie Rivera has launched an online competition seeking out a hot new dance music talent that he can showcase at Juicy Beach and through his Juicy Music label. The Grand Prize winner will receive the opportunity to play along side Robbie and other international DJ talent at Juicy Beach on March 21, 2013 plus the chance to show off those production skills with their very own release on Juicy Music. Robbie isn’t looking for some last minute opening DJ, but a rather a new talent to showcase prominently at the Juicy Beach event and on all promotional materials. Miami is Robbie’s hometown, so you gotta work your ass off THAT much harder to win it.
To enter, aspiring producers and DJs are invited to submit an original remix of Robbie’s track, “Makes Me Feel Good” along with their best 15-minute mix that incorporates their remix to www.talenthouse.com/perform-juicy-beach. Stems for “Makes Me Feel Good” are available here. Submissions are open until February 10, 2013 with a one-week voting period taking place between February 11 and February 18. Robbie Rivera will personally choose the Grand Prize Winner while the fans will choose the runner up. Winners will be announced on February 26, 2013. Click here to review the guidelines and submit your work.
There’s a lot in the works for 2013 including the first ever Juicy World Tour that commences this weekend at Pacha in New York City. After successfully bringing Juicy Beach to New York City’s Governors Island (the first North American Juicy Beach show outside of Miami), Robbie’s decided to bring Juicy themed parties directly to fans across North America. Look out for addition tour dates and the Juicy Beach Phase Two lineup coming soon

Following the success of his 'LYVE FROM ASIA' Tour just over a year ago, German producer/DJ André Tegeler, better known as Moguai, is now set to embark on a tour of Asia returning to the shores of the Far East on a mission to blow audiences away in some of the finest and most famous clubs on the continent.
In the year since he was last in the Orient, a lot has been going on in the world of Moguai, not least a continual stream of exceptional music including his hit mau5trap album 'MPIRE,' and an array of truly superb remixes for some of the biggest names in music.
The man himself was kind enough to chat with us whilst in Newark airport, continuing his journey across the US leading up to his Oriental takeover -
DxE: Since you released the album ‘Mpire’ it really seems like you have created your own empire for yourself. How did you have the idea for the album, how did it come together and how are you turning it into something more?
M: I always look to do production similar to the way I did it 10 years ago, so more rough and noiser. The first album I released on Deadmau5’s label mau5trap came out under the name “WE AR LYVE” and it was more electronica, more of a listening album which I still really love but I tried to do something new which is a combination of the last album and what I’ve produced in the past but in a new costume. That’s how the idea started to produce in that way and create my own personal Mpire. Then I made one track after another and at the end, I had I think 25 tracks and they were all matched together so I was like ‘hey come on, we have a second album.’ Also on other platforms like iTunes and Spotify we did some like special downloads
DxE: When you released “WE ARE LYVE” and did the tour for the album, you had the whole visual set up. Are you doing something similar for this tour?
M: Yes, absolutely. It’s going to be in a similar direction but with new music and new visuals, which match more to the style that you can listen to both in your car and on the mainstage at a show like EDC.
DxE: And you’ve been doing this for a long time right?
M: Yeah it just keeps getting better and better, more and more fun.
DxE: So how has the scene changed back from when you started up to now playing some of the biggest stages and festivals in the world?
M: For me, it hasn’t changed so much. The only thing that really has is that, international wise, I’m on tour a lot more because before I really exploded I had a strong brand profile in Germany, where I’m from – I have my weekly radio show on an official radio station and I had played all the biggest stages there, just not in places like New York or Las Vegas.
DxE: Can we expect to be seeing you soon at all on the West Coast?
M: There are some weeks coming up on the West Coast, I think in October and then for sure at the end of the year through January and February. But before, I think in October I will definitely be touring the West Coast.
DxE: Let’s talk a little about some of our favorite tracks of yours.. You just did the remix of “Push The Tempo” which is a classic old song now transformed onto pretty much every dance floor. Was that your idea or how did that project come about?
M: I made one or two tracks for Fatboy’s Slim label before and they asked if I would do a remix of one of the older tracks he put out. I said I could imagine it but I did not want to be the 101st person to do “Rockerfeller Skank” or “Right Here, Right Now” so I wanted to do a track which never had a new remix so they sent over a couple and I chose “Push The Tempo.” I’m really surprised that everyone is playing it, you know, from The Bloody Beetroots to David Guetta, Tiesto, Steve Angello – they’re all playing this record and it wasn’t really easy to play but I’m very happy with the way it came out.
DxE: For the producers out there, what programs do you use to produce?
M: I produced back in the day only in Logic. Right now, I’m doing most of my tracks in Ableton and for the MIDI I still sometimes use Logic because everything MIDI is best in Logic, but sound wise I prefer Ableton.
DxE: Do you have any favorite synths or sounds?
M: I very often use the Sylenth, I think like everyone is using it these days because it really is one of the best.
DxE: Does Moguai have a favorite ice cream flavor?
M: Haha, umm I prefer vanilla.
DxE: What can we expect from you in the near future?
M: I’m focusing on touring and for sure producing. I did a remix just now for Moby, a track made for the Bourne Identity movie, which will come out with a re-release of the movie sometime around October. Also working on a track with Moby so we could be looking at a collaboration to be released this year as well. The album ‘Mpire’ will be coming out in Germany and Switzerland also which means there will be new vocals and remixes. Then… it’s really so much, I’m also doing a remix for Pink in America and another collaboration with Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. You know, the more I think about it, the more there is coming up.
DxE: Is the scene still different in Germany than it is in the States?
M: It’s totally different. For me, when you compare it to Germany, Germany would lose right now when you compare it directly because people are more into it here in America right now, electronic music wise. It’s not really new in Germany, they’ve been hearing music like this for like 10-15 years. I really love touring here because when people go out, they really go out to party.
DxE: Is there anything else you’d like to say to your fans?
M: Do what you love, enjoy life and try to make the best with what you can. If you have a dream, never stop going in that direction because it will happen – it doesn’t matter if you want to be a DJ or a dentist or whatever – follow your dream.

Now established as the first key tent-pole event of the new EDM year, ID&T's Energy is clued-up clubbers first encounter with the sound-designs that Europe's electronic dance top-tier are going to be sending their way throughout the coming year. The best of the world's top-tier producers. The most cutting-edge remixologists. The newest, hottest studio stars of tomorrow. They're all gathered, they're all here... for Energy 2012 - The ALBUM!
Before WMC, before UMF, before the White Isle or the summer month's festivalism, right here is where the starting gun sounds! The titanic Utrecht-based Energy event is the launch pad for each new beats/bass/synth-packed EMD year,
With their finely-tuned lone-range radars scanning studios near daily, ID&T & High Contrast sign the tracks that capture the essence of the event straight off the mixing desks. Their track-packed 2012 edition has sourced music from heavyweight operators like Tiesto, Fedde Le Grand, John Dahlback, Marco V, and Marcel Woods, as well as nu-skool heroes including Hardwell, Dada Life, Jochen Miller, Chris Lake, and Funkagenda. It also selects white-hot sonics from the prospecting superstars of tomorrow, Nicky Romero, Deniz Koyu, Manuel De La Mare being just three.
Every event of standing requires an official anthem and every mix-comp needs a big kick-off. This year Energy's audio-emblem is served up by Hardwell, who following his runaway success over the last 12 months, springboards into 2012 with 'Cobra.' fulfilling all the requirements of the anthem mandate, it's a huge, bass-powered, squelch 'n' distort fest, topped by a wickedly infectious 'n' irresistible organ mainline. Continuing to mine a rich seam of music, it's followed by the marching drums of Denzal Parl's 'Militia,' Ted Nilsson's heart-pounder 'Runaway' and the big-room culture of Fedde Le Grand & Patric La Funk's 'Autosave' - all of which nitro-inject the mix. Hardcoding the event's dance-DNA, you'll also find Dahlback's high-wire tense 'Feel It,' 'Work Hard, Play Hard,' Tiesto's weekender-aimed anthem and Dada Life's deliciously looping (and loopy) 'Cookies With A Smile' all continue to flesh out the event's ethos.
From its outset fisc 2 sets about securing Energy's groove credentials and ensures those quotas are kept sky-high! Building more house rhythms into the mix are EDX'S 'D.A.N.C.E.', the warped bass of Chris Lake & Michael Woods' 'Domino's and the big piano drop moment of Jerome Isma-Ae and Daniel Portman's 'Flashing Lights.' The mix's midpoint lets loose the first-time collaboration of Marco V and Marcel Woods. The team behind 'Scream' team have watched a litany of DJs rally to their track's cause, turning it into one of 2012's first must-owns. As the disc reaches its conclusion, the nu-skool performs a takeover.
The electro-bounce of Joey Suki's 'Zomp,' Ostahnhof & Ugo Platana's 'Evensong' (in its drum-dramatic Michael Woods remix form) and the whooping uprush of Tim Mason album endgame 'Anima' collectively, conclusively seal Energy's audio-ideology.
Every bit your gateway to spring's arena season (and beyond), ID&T's 'Energy 2012 - The Album' is a future-perfect vision of the pulse-quickening floor anthems coming our way this year.
Forward thinking dance denizens, buckle up and get your clubbing shoes on! It's going to get a whole lot fiercer before it gets any calmer!

The tracklist speaks for itself, 'Energy 2012 - The Album' is without a doubt a must have compilation of tracks from some of the biggest names in the EDM game. Make sure to grab your copy on either Beatport or iTunes!
With the Meowington Hax Tour taking off, Deadmau5 has released a collective album that includes a bunch of dirty tracks and remixes. If you're into producing and mixing definitely check out the kits below and throw them into your DAW n turn your speakers up.
"As Deadmau5 embarks upon the Meowingtons Hax North American tour alongside a host of the Mau5trap stable, the label head leads the charge with a brand new compilation. It features new and exclusive tracks from Deadmau5 himself and a host of the artists featuring on the tour, as well as a selection of tracks from new additions to the label that you can expect to hear a lot more from in the coming months. With contributions from Feed Me, Tommy Lee & Aero, Excision & Datsik, Zedd, Moguai, Al Bizzare and James Njie, this compilation is set to be the soundtrack to the tour carnage that will undoubtedly ensue. Opening with the insistent, driving powerhouse that is Where My Keys, an exclusive track from Deadmau5 himself, the compilation goes straight for the jugular. Moving through the jarring Cotts Face by Feed Me which fuses together glitchy drums and erratic synth lines and onto recent tour additions Tommy Lee & Aero the compilation doesnt hold up for a second as they deliver two fidgety electro house party starting tracks. Excision & Datsik turn up the heat with Deviance as grinding beats and growling basslines meet extra-terrestrial synth lines, proving once again why their star is most definitely in the ascendant. Zedds remix of Skrillex smash Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites channels the power of the original into a filthy 4x4 monster while Moguais Beat of The Drum surges forward on the elastic synths and rolling bass line with Sofi delivering her vocals with attitude.Upcoming Mau5trap artists Al Bizzare and James Njie also feature on the compilation. Al Bizzare brings Blast Wave to the table, a many-headed beast that switches up glistening synths and swelling bass and is in turns both euphoric and gritty. Rising talent James Njie rounds off the compilation in style, introducing himself with two futuristic progressive house tracks that are at once delicately nuanced and full of impact, speaking volumes of his talent. Mau5trap has grown exponentially since its inception in 2007 and become home to some of the most exciting electronic artists in the world. The new compilation features just some of the talent that the label champions and offers up a decisive musical statement whether you are going to the upcoming tour or not. To celebrate the release of the compilation, the Beatport version will come with selected track parts available for digital DJs giving them the chance to get creative. *The Meowingtons Hax tour runs from 11th August to 5th November, starting in Vancouver and ending in Toronto."

"Beat Of The Drum" is an ideal pairing, combining Moguai's hard hitting basslines and rhythm with SOFI's jumped up, attitude-filled vocals. SOFI hit headlines late last year with the infectious track "SOFI Needs A Ladder" that saw her team up with head-rodent Joel Zimmerman, aka Deadmau5. Meanwhile Moguai has been going from strength to strength with huge releases on Size, an enormous remix for Felix Da Housecat on Doorn Records and his most recently his exclusive "Lyve From Beta" compilation on Mau5trap."
