International tours, EDC appearances, Festival sets, Vegas gigs, and never ending music studio hours can do a good job of keeping two friends apart. But for the first time in over a year, DJ Storm and DJ Jeff Phantom have teamed up again for another multi-genre mish-mash of mashups. ‘Get Out Of Jail Free’ sticks closer to the the electronic music side of the fence, and where it does feature hip hop, it does so with remixes.  However, the ebb and flow of the 65 minute long mix features a range from House, to Twerk, to Trap that is sure to keep any listener entertained.  Check out a demo below, and click the photo above to download.

The DJ’s From Mars Are Back At It Again.

Classically known as ones who call out the cheesy commercialism aspects of commercial EDM in a clever way, the DJs From Mars have returned to expand upon their previous skewering of popular sounds in the mainstream in their video “Phat Ass Drop pt 2.” Released this Thursday, two years after the first installment of the video which “instructed” young producers how to make a typical Top 10 Beatport track, Part 2 covers several types of “trends” that have recently taken the scene by storm.

The video begins by instructing aspiring producers to head to Beatport.com and look up the most popular new sound, which they point out as deep house. After quickly throwing in some generic deep house samples into the foundation of the track, the DJs cite articles from blogs (Dancing Astronaut makes an appearance) saying that deep house is dead, so they turn the track into future house to keep up with what’s cool. Not too long after skewering future house, they then target unoriginal tropical house samples and call it “boring.”

However, the DJs From Mars still haven’t forgotten about big room house as the most copied type of EDM. First, a quick homage is done to Melbourne bounce as the subgenre with light big room overtones that led to popular, yet simple tracks like “Selfie.” But upon instructing producers to view tracklists of the worlds “biggest” DJs like Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Tiesto, and “Chuck Norris,” DJs From Mars eventually conclude that the most surefire way to create a hit is by making a big room track.

SNL makes fun of EDM DJ’s


sddefault3020-500x375

The EDM community has spread this video faster than an Avicii single, but we here at the blog still needed to write about it, even though most music enthusiasts have seen it.  As a DJ myself, I know personally there are quite a few times when you let a song play for a bit, and have nothing to do with your hands.  “EDM Event” DJ’s have managed to find a way around this by fist-pumping (a despicable practice) or doing other things to appear as if they’re doing something dramatic in the booth.  SNL has taken certain new fads in the DJ industry to new nights in their new spoof, poking fun at Avicii, how much money EDM DJ’s pull in, and the crowd reaction to… not really that much going on.  Check out this hilarious viral video below.
