With SNL looking for crap to actually show on their show that we can not believe people still watch, they took a huge dump on the electronic dance music culture last night. With Andy Samberg playing a DJ named “Davvinci” who had a very large resemblance to David Guetta, they named this short “When will the bass drop”. Mocking the long build ups that we hear in songs, Samberg does everything he can to keep the building going as long as he can until he hits the “bass” button.
Electronic dance music is not for everyone, and it never will be for everyone just like country music is not for everyone. People will never understand the real love behind this music culture but we have people like SNL that will always make a mockery of it.
Watch the short here:
After a long wait of no new music from Nero for over a year now, Satisfy has finally been released on their soundcloud and premiered on BBC Radio 1.
Being a huge fan of Nero’s past work and this new track, we can definitely expect some awesome new music in the coming months.

Mysteryland Art and Music festival’s US debut is set and ready to go cashless this coming memorial day at the historic Woodstock grounds. Teaming up with the worlds leading RFID access control and cashless payment providers Intellitix, allowing attendees to take advantage of pre loaded computer chip bracelets allowing them entrance into the festival along with paying for things like food and drinks. This will make Mysteryland the first ever North American festival to go cashless.
Each of the expected 20,000 attendees will be issued a wristband embedded with an RFID chip. This will be the only currency accepted by vendors and merchandisers on-site across the festival. People will be able to add funds to their account pre-event, set up automatic top-ups, and will receive funds automatically on any remaining balance post-event. If you run out of money during the festival, you will be able to use top-up stations around the festival to load more cash onto these wristbands.
There are many benefits to using a system like this. It will significantly advance the fan experience by improving security, cutting wait times for food and beverages, and eliminating theft and fraud.
This being the first time this system will be used in any American festival, it will be exciting to see the outcome of this system post-event.

For the past few weeks, the Verge Campus tour has been kicking some college butt up and down the east coast. Put together by Emuze and Karmaloop, Krewella has been headlining this years tour. Last year college students got to see the ever so popular Steve Aoki headline, and this year these students get to witness the rising stars of Krewella.
This Saturday, we have the opportunity to cover the Verge Campus show at Babson College in Wellesley MA. This is a private show and only for Babson students but there are shows along the tour that is open to the public to attend. Growing up just minutes away from Babson College, I never thought of it as a party school, but this Saturday I will get to decide for myself whether or not this is true.
Stay tuned for a full review and photographs of this event!

Ever wonder what it was like to be hit by a freight train? Well seeing Excision live will bring you just a little closer to that feeling. We had the opportunity to witness one of the bassiest shows we have ever witnessed/felt. Aside from Datsik, Excision has to be one of the most energetic shows to date when it comes to the bass culture.

Todays EDM scene is flooded with so much main stream music house and techno that it is amazing when you get to wintess something from artists like Excision. Accompanied by his Executioner stage setup and production, Canadian bass junkie Excision brought with him 150,000 watts of bass. Last time we got hit with this setup was with Datsik during his Digital Assassins tour.
The evening started with some great supporting artists like Ill Gates and DirtyPhonics. Being a DirtyPhonics fan for a while now, I was almost more excited to see them live than Excision. But it made my night just being able to see them both in one sitting.

Ill admit it, I love bass. Who doesn’t love to get hit with a huge drop? As I stood in the pit waiting for the set to start, the opening track came on with just a tone. I found myself standing right next to the subwoofers and could feel my whole body shaking. To me, it was like being a little kid in the candy store, except the candy was bass drops.
With tons of energy and insane visuals, Excision brought tracks like Get Stupid any many more. With the venue sold out, it was hard to even move 2 feet without having to shove someone out of the way to get anywhere. But for me to be able to photography an artists that brings such intensity to their sets it was very worth it. For all of you who have not had a chance to check out Excision live, you need to next time he comes around your area.

As the heart of festival season is coming closer and closer as every day passes, the U.S will see its share of many multi day festivals. One festival that sticks out from many of the other festivals with its elaborate art installments and big name musicians is going to be Mysteryland. Taking place in the historic Bethel Woods in New York where the 1969 Woodstock festival was held, we can expect this festival to be one of the more anticipated festivals of the season.
Known for their multi-faceted approach to how festivals of this size, Mysteryland offers 3 days of awesome music, art, and performances. Taking place Memorial Day weekend may 23-26th, we will see musicians such as Steve Aoki, Kaskade, Showtek, and many many more with multiples of stages. Last years main stage included a giant majestic owl, so we can assume that this years main stage setup will be one to remember.
Tickets are still on sale but going fast. So don’t miss out and go buy your tickets now!
