Paris Hilton's Amnesia Ibiza residency has come to an end

Ibiza - The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived; Paris Hilton is packing up her pre-recorded ghost-artists sets and finishing her residency at Amnesia in Ibiza. Maybe the most controversial thing on the island will be leaving the White Isle. She could possibly play some one-off shows on fellow Balearic island Mallorca, according to reports. For all the stick she gets for her DJ antics, and being the highest-paid female DJ in the world, it turns out she's got some sense of musical taste. Last year she was spotted partying at Circoloco at DC-10 with Nicole Moudaber.

Joseph Capriati played a 25-hour set in Miami this weekend

Joseph Capriati played for 25 hours and 30 minutes at Heart Nightclub in Miami this weekend. In a tweet he says the marathon set wasn’t something he planned on doing and will be hard to repeat. It sounds like a logistical nightmare with the need to eat, go to the bathroom (throw on an extra long song at that point) and of course the lack of sleep.

Paris Hilton is planning to release a deep house techno pop album

Paris Hilton began her DJ career several years ago and quickly moved to the top of the "highest paid" list, earning up to $1 million per gig. Having recently ended her fifth year as Amnesia Ibiza resident and (somehow) still being the highest paid female DJ in the world, she was featured in TIME, which attempted to give onlookers insight into her world as a performing DJ. Apparently, she's working on her second full-length album which she describes as "deep house, techno-pop (apparently this is a thing) and electro-pop". The feature ends with a moment of sympathy for the billionaire DJ, who mentions...

Trance is making a big comeback

Trance is a genre of electronic music that reached the peak of popularity and the end of 90s and early 2000s with the names such as Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk and Ferry Corsten. Emotional brakes with uplifting melodies and 130 BPM was the first contact many had with electronic music. Now, trance is a dirty word in dance music. A label few “underground” DJs would ever be comfortable with carrying. And while the term itself is not nearly as reviled and divisive as EDM these days, it certainly hasn’t been cool in a very long time. But what happened? This was a genre pioneered by the likes of Jam & Spoon, The KLF, and most importantly, Sven Väth, whose labels Eye Q and Harthouse released genre-defining albums like 1992’s Accident in Paradise and 1994’s The Robot, The Harlequin and The Ballet Dancer. It was the sound of Berlin’s Love Parade...

Ricardo Villalobos: "I can be a DJ even without drugs"

Berlin-based DJ and producer Ricardo Villalobos says becoming a DJ can’t be forced just because someone thinks it’s the cool thing to do. In a recent interview with the Guardian, the minimal pioneer touched on how a strong passion for music is required to become a DJ, which can’t be sought out, rather it’s ingrained in a DJ’s entire life. “People playing records have to be DJs their whole life. It’s not like you can become a DJ when you’re 20 because you think it’s cool. You are touched by it; you cry because of a rhythm. Me, I’m crying all the time.” When watching Villalobos in the DJ booth it’s obvious he’s in love with music due to the amount of energy he uses, often dancing as hard as anyone in the crowd. He says this is simply how he reacts to music: “I’m a hyper-kinetic guy, I have a lot of...

15 Questions: Nina Kraviz

At this point, the Nina Kraviz story is well known to just about anyone who’s been paying even a modicum of attention to dance music over the past few years. Born in Siberia and trained as a dentist, Kraviz worked her way into the electronic music circuit and eventually became one of the world’s most recognizable DJs. She’s prompted plenty of conversation (some might say controversy) along the way, but most of the recent chatter has been squarely focused on her music, namely her excellent recent entry in the esteemed DJ-Kicks mix series. In hopes of unearthing a few new facts about Kraviz, we asked the Russian artist to withstand a barrage of queries for our first edition of 15 Questions. As it turns out, she was more than up to the task. 1. Where were you born and raised? In Siberia, 50 miles away from the deepest lake in the world. 2....

Born in Santiago, Chile in 1970, Ricardo Villalobos made a name for himself as a DJ and electronic music producer during the late ’90s. His foray into music started in 1994 when he released his first record. He has come a long way since, making waves in the minimal techno and microhouse electronic music genres and becoming one of the most respected names in the underground dance music circuit. His popularity is not just confined to his music though. He is also known for being quite the “quirky” fellow, whose mannerisms and antics are a subject of interest to many, to say the least. And in a world where the internet loves to pick up “interesting” things and turn them into something more, Villalobos’ quirks are a goldmine, so to speak. Enough for him to be considered a rising internet star, not a bad thing to add in his resume. To prove our...

Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff have released an EDM track, and it's....

Long-time friends and collaborators Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff recently debuted a new track titled ‘Get Lit’, which seems to be their attempt at becoming relevant by tapping into EDM culture. Debuting the new song at Livewire Festival in England, ‘Get Lit’ is the first collaboration from the two artists since their 1998 track ‘Lovely Daze’. According to NME, the track was produced as a response to the “chaos and confusion” happening around the world. Before debuting ‘Get Lit’, Smith spoke to the crowd about the inspiration behind the track: “I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine. We all have an inner light and sometimes… people can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t. You know you can, but when they tell you that, it knocks you down a bit. I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of...

Dave Clarke announces first album in 14 years - The Desecration Of Desire

UK techno icon Dave Clarke is putting out a new album, The Desecration Of Desire, on Skint in October. Re-post from Resident Advisor: It's the first full-length for Clarke since 2003's Devil's Advocate. The Amsterdam-based DJ and producer spent nearly two years putting it together, a period of time that also saw him involved in a serious car accident in Serbia. Clarke describes The Desecration Of Desire as more of a proper album than his prior two efforts. Instead of a techno focus, we're told it reflects his lifelong love of punk, new wave, noise and industrial music. "The desire to write songs has been bubbling in me for ages," he says. " felt like collections. This one's more like a book, a chronology. I'm so happy with my studio. I've stayed away from club music. Finally, it's just me, my imagination and a touch of fearlessness about opening up." A number of collaborators were involved in making the album. Two tracks, including...
