The Chainsmokers Tie Avicii For Most Consecutive Weeks At #1 On Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Charts

The Chainsmokers have done it again. “Closer” reigns supreme in #1 in the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Charts, a staggering 26 consecutive weeks at the top, tying Avicii for most weeks at #1.

Avicii set the record back in 2013-2014 with “Wake Me Up” on tracking week September 23rd, 2013 only to be supplanted, ironically, with his own follow-up single “Hey Brother.”

“Closer” has been on top of the charts since September 3rd and is still going strong in all tracking formats – streams, downloads, and radio play. “Paris” remains in second place for the fourth straight week so we’ll see if the same thing happens again with a follow-up single knocking down the reigning #1 champ.

Swedish House Mafia’s Last Show Ever At Ultra 2013 [Video]

10649084_1010627968963305_3437918529641673585_oFor this week’s flashback Friday, we are taken back to the end of an era. It’s coming up on almost two years since the disbandment of Swedish House Mafia and most of us have yet to move on from the transition. Yes, Axwell / Ingrosso are great and Steve Angello is also doing well, but I can’t help but feel a void that their individual acts cannot fill.

The reality of the situation is that for those who entered the EDM scene circa 2009-2011, Swedish House Mafia most likely played a vital role in their introduction and immersion in the EDM culture. With their departure, we are older and wiser and our tastes have changed and evolved; yet, as we look back on what it was like just a few years ago, we can’t help but get a good kick in the nostalgia feels.

Relive the end of the Swedish House Mafia below:

Krewella Crash Super Bowl Party for Surprise Halftime Show [Video]

902921_518828658159260_994100182_o-e1366145690260-9407

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, we take it back to the time Krewella absolutely destroyed a super bowl party. Lucky patrons at a bar in New York City were treated to a surprise performance from Krewella courtesy of Bud Light at the end of halftime during the Super Bowl this year.

For anyone who tuned into the big game, it should be fairly obvious that Bud Light recognizes that EDM is the wave of the present and the future (they debuted Afrojack’s new single in one of their commercials and also featured Zedd as the newest spokesman for their Bud Light Platinum promotion) so it comes as no surprise that they tapped Krewella for this secret performance in NYC.

Check out the clip from the performance below, featuring Krewella dropping the hit single “Enjoy The Ride,”
