Yesterday, I attended the Mad Decent Block Party in Los Angeles. I saw performances from Zeds DeadTheophilus London, Munchi, Paul Devro, 3Ball MTY, Bonde Do Role, Clockwork, Casey Veggies and Paper Diamond. I pretty much saw every act I wanted to and saw at least one that reaffirmed my belief he will not be a breakout star. Read my review below. (more…)

EXCLUSIVE: Charlie Darker’s Top 5 New Artists

February 8th, 2012 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Guest Mix |

We got a guest mix/post from Charlie Darker. Since featuring Charlie on Best You’ve Never Heard 5, Darker’s following has only increased. I have confirmed that Charlie Darker has a remix he did for Diplo and Don Diablo dropping very soon so you know top DJs are noticing Charlie Darker.

So we were discussing what type of exclusive feature would be best for Charlie to do with us and thought that since he’s a rising DJ in the EDM scene, it would be great to get his take on his five top new artists.

Avicii update *mashup, Fade Into Darkness, Don’t Give Up On Us, and 2 remixes

August 2nd, 2011 by | Dance, House, Mashup, Remix |

Pretty sure I have written about Avicii last week and wrote about him again in the previous week. But recently Leona Lewis put out a song, “Collide”, that clearly uses the instrumentals to “Penguins” by Avicii which samples a song in the 80’s from Penguin Café Orchestra. Check out Vacay for the scoop.

Anyways, Kap Slap decided to sample Avicii‘s “Fade Into Darkness (Vocal Edit)” with “Collide” from Leona Lewis then mixed in “Penguins” by Avicii.
