No more trolling for Deadmau5 as he releases new productions.

As Deadmau5 is notoriously known for his serial trolling via soundcloud with his infamous comments on big room sounds at the moment, he has also been very busy releasing more of the tracks he is famous for.

In the last two days, he’s uploaded multiple bootlegs including “Turbo CartPig Racer” and “Somewhere Up Here (fin)” which are to set a new standard for other DJs in the music industry.

This came after his troll response on the Swedish duo Daleri ‘Epic Mashleg’ release on beatport which had 16 drops in 54 seconds, ‘mau5 released a track ‘Drop Da Bomb’ as a parody of this duos success which got unexpected success from the public.

“It’s easy to show up with that one hit, but the problem is not stagnating in a pile of your own fucking shit,” he commented to Vibemagazine at the start of the year.

“That’s something I’m always aware of when starting a new project. If you’re not being diverse, people will get bored. I like Avicii, he’s a real nice kid, but Avicii has got this Levels thing, and I almost feel bad for him. It’s probably not even his fault. He did the track, and it was all right – it was catchy – but I, dead-fucking-mau5, cannot name another Avicii track. I shit you not. I can’t.”

UMF Live Stream

 

The producers of Ultra Music Festival have been thoughtful enough to consider that the majority of the worlds population don’t get to come to the most desired festival of the year, so they have offered us the ‘UMF live stream,’ as compensation for their quick to sell out tickets.

Second Weekend for Ultra Music Festival

After a lengthy meeting with the Miami City Commission, Ultra Music Festival have won the approval to hold a second three day festival on the weekend of March 22-24. The approval has only been made for this year, however Ultra will have the opportunity to address this with the Committee in 2014. It also doesn’t come without cost, Ultra has agreed to pay $500 000 to the city to cover additional police and fire services.

The festival is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary this year and is predicted to have 300 000 party goers through their gates over the six days, generating over $150 million for the local economy. The second weekend has already gained tonnes of support and Ultra’s founders are promising to create two unique experiences.

Kraftwerk in Rock Hall of Fame!

 

If you consider Daft Punk to be the father of the American EDM boom, then it’s time to vote for Grandpa. German electronic music visionaries Kraftwerk have been nominated for entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the first electronic act to be up for such honors.

In addition to recording ten groundbreaking studio albums, Kraftwerk quite literally helped invent many of the innovations that the music we love takes for granted today. From the vocoder to the drum pad and beyond, Kraftwerk were analog pioneers that were light years ahead of their 1970s contemporaries. Cited as influences by multiple generations and genres of artists, ranging from the French robots to Depeche Mode, Björk, and every single techno DJ, with unimpeachable longevity (they played Ultra Music Festival and swiftly sold out eight nights at New York’s Museum of Modern Art earlier this year), it is no exaggeration to say electronic music would not be the same without them.

You can (and should) vote to support Kraftwerk’s nomination for entry here.

Ultra Music Festival in Europe!

Ultra Worldwide has just announced that they will be bringing their prestigious festival to Europe for the first time in 2013 from July 12th – 14th in Croatia. The festival plans to span 2 separate venues – spending its first 2 days at Poljud Stadium before moving to the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the island of Hvar. This is exciting news for European dance music fans, but it remains to be seen if a Miami Music Week type of following, with its week long party schedule, will be established in it’s inaugural year.

Priced at 40 euros (approximately $65 USD), early bird tickets for the first two days go on sale December 5th exclusively at Ultra Europe.com. Stayed tuned for the Phase One lineup announcement on December 12th at 12:00 p.m. local time.  Also, for those of us stuck in the states, there are already extensive plans to stream the event through UMF TV and UMF Radio. It will be Swedish House Mafia’s final performances at Ultra Music Festival. Be sure to grab a ticket to get in quick!

Swedish House Mafia’s ONE LAST TOUR

As you’d expect, Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour is shaping up to be a massive farewell. The Swedes’ first tour announcement revealed they’ll be taking in dates everywhere from India to South Africa, as well as plenty of stops in the usual European and North American hangs. Last week, they announced they’re not leaving us out either, heading out for one last Australian show at the Sydney Showground in February. But they’re not stopping there. Today, the trio revealed the final stop on their world tour – and the honours have gone to Miami’s Ultra Music Festival.

Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello will cap their joint career off with not one but two sets at Miami’s famous UMF. Following the news that Ultra is expanding to two weekends for 2013, the Swedes have announced that they’ll perform at both weekends of the festival: kicking things off with a set on the opening night of Friday, March 15 and closing the festival the following week on Sunday, March 24. It’s going back to where the SHM all began, as Ultra was where the dance titans made their North American debut in 2010. “Ultra was the first place we really built a show for the mainstage,” SHM said in a statement. “It just felt right that we finished where so much was started and we’re honoured to open and close the festival.”

However, a couple of years ago the Swedish House Mafia bidding farewell at Ultra might not have seemed so likely. In 2011, the Swedes skipped UMF in favour of hosting their own Masquerade Motel Miami bash in direct competition with Ultra after Miami’s Winter Music Conference dates were moved, much to the ire of Angello and co. Still, both parties are letting bygones be bygones with good reason – with UMF bringing no less than 165,000 punters to town in 2012, Swedish House Mafia couldn’t have picked a bigger way to go out.
