It’s no secret that DJ 5th Mars knows how to capture the attention of his audience through music! His newly released single, ‘Loving You Forever feat. Suzanna Lubrano’ is no exception, showcasing his talent yet again with infectious beats and smooth vocals throughout.
Usually you would think that an enormous electronic music festival would not hear the likes of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, so it was groundbreaking news when French duo Justice went against the natural flow of a headlining set and featured this particular song as the closing number at Toronto’s Digital Dreams festival last week.
An event to help celebrate the country’s 147th birthday and one that showcases hit makers like Tiesto, Deep Dish and Dash Berlin, one would think Justice, a duo right amongst these top dogs would not expect the crowd to boogie along down to a 1960s track. However the controversy has also come with compliments. Though they are known for their own hit Civilization which is always pleasing to hear, Justice have also been acknowledged for their ‘boldness to express the originality to do something different’.

Baauer, renowned for the song that started that gigantic Harlem Shake internet trend last year has remained relatively quiet in the two years since that single’s release.
“EDM was a positive thing for everyone.”
It’s been five long years since we’ve heard from Canadian king pins, MSTRKFRFT, and they’re planning on coming back in style.
In a recent interview with THUMP, the group opened up about their new sound and the creative industry that is EDM, saying how it’s such a positive thing and that the sky is the limit when it comes to experimenting with new sounds.
Going on to speak about the EDM scene, Keeler thinks “There’s suddenly a f*cking ton of money to make off of everything, and people are trying to find a way to bring it all together, so it wouldn’t just be a bunch of insular scenes because that’s how it was before,” he said. “The way people play it now, the sounds and everything involved are all over the place. So in that sense I think EDM was a positive thing for everyone, especially the kids who are just getting into it now.
“They sort of see the full palette of sounds and ideas all at once. They’re not just like ‘Oh that’s house music’ or ‘Oh that’s techno’ or ‘I can’t make that type of sound in this song cause it doesn’t make sense.’
“Everything makes sense, which is cool. But on the flip side, whenever you have the possibility of making easy money by copying what is already happening, you’ll have a lot of people doing that. I feel like EDM is a genre now and not so much a concept.
“The new feel is awesome and I think what we’re doing now is the best music we’ve ever made by far.”
Now we are just going to have to wait in silent anticipation, biting our nails and pulling our hair out until we can listen to some of this new material that promises to deliver on all things awesome!
They’ve even set up a twitter, so far it’s only got a single post on it… maybe this is where they are going to be releasing their updates from??
