See The Return of Demur As Artist Gives Us ‘DJ Wars’

Anonymous dance music fan and artist Demur has been putting together artwork to illustrate his thoughts as a “concerned citizen of dance music.”

“DJ Wars,” his latest creation, is unsurprisingly inspired by Star Wars and it features one group of dance music DJs and producers on the side of Jedi, and another group on the side of the Sith.

Many of dance music’s A-listers such as Daft Punk, Skrillex, deadmau5, Eric Prydz, and Knife Party find themselves on the side of “good” flanked by fellow producers Noisia, Prodigy, Knife Party, Wolfgang Gartner, Mat Zo, Laidback Luke, Aphex Twin, and even the Monstercat label.

Representing the dark side we have Carnage, Paris Hilton, DVBBS, Danny Avila, David Guetta, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – all of whom have been criticized within the dance music industry for a variety of reasons.Demur DJ Wars

Ultra South Africa Finalizes 2015 Lineup with DVBBS, Oliver Heldens, and More

In the second year of Ultra in South Africa, the lineup is looking like a DJ Mag-fanboy’s wet dream.

In the Phase 2 lineup that was announced yesterday, filling out the already stacked lineup, were DVBBS, Gorgon City and Oliver Heldens.

As major festivals begin to emerge in other countries, we will begin to see lineups that look a lot like this, catering to the popular choice rather than perhaps utilizing the host nation’s own talent. However, this is just the second year of the festival, and there is a lot of native talent, including Goldfish and and Black Coffee, to keep things fresh.
 

“The additional lineup also boasts the likes of Elrow resident DJs Marc Maya, De Law Swing and Toni Varga, alongside South African homegrown talents Black Coffee and Goldfish. Billed as the “largest electronic music festival in Africa’s history,” with a total expected attendance of 40,000, Ultra South Africa will be held Feb. 13 at Cape Town’s Ostrich Park and on Feb. 14 at Johannesburg’s NASRAC Expo Grounds.

General Admission tickets can still be obtained here.”

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,”
