Artemis…Florian Picasso!

Florian Picasso continues to reveal his master-plan to the world by way of his big-room masterpiece – ‘Artemis.’ Lots of room for any style interpretation on this one, with its lusty, orchestral sound-scapes, twisted rubber synth play and a massive, driving big-room beat that anchors the whole thing. AKA killer beats for killer times, really! This guy is awesome and we love it!

GTA Keeps the Huge Remixes Coming With Takes on Kylie, Kaskade & JWLS!

Kylie

Julio Mejia and Matt van Toth, otherwise known as GTA, have been able to churn out three monster remixes in the space of just two weeks.

Starting off with dance behemoth, Kaskade, the Miami duo does what they do best; taking the progressive production and blowing it out of the ‘Atmosphere’ and into outer space with their own trap-laden beat.

Buy it on Beatport HERE!

 

Next up to receive the GTA treatment was none other than the people’s pop princess, Kylie Minogue, whose bass heavy ‘Skirt’ spills over with horns and moombahton madness when master remixers are done with it. Echoing the sounds of TNGHT and Diplo, this one grapples with the stunning original and emerges as a modern dance anthem in its own right.

Buy it on Beatport HERE!

Last on the list but by no means least is Julio’s very own, ‘Bashin’’, originally released under his alias, JWLS. Turned on its head with the assistance of his partner in crime, this one has quite rightly been garnering some serious attention from their peers and those in the know. Grab them all below, right now!

Set to continue supporting Rihanna on the rest of her European journey, with stops in Manchester, Oslo and Helsinki on the horizon, GTA’s schedule isn’t getting quieter any sooner. We all will just have to wait and see what they come up with next.

Jounce Is Your Mama’s Favorite Rising DJ! THE Interview!

jounce4

Directly based in the center of the entertainment world, DJ Jounce is pulsating killer beats straight into the hearts of EDM lovers. Originating from mixed-CDs, with no names or labels, Jounce focuses his music on the pure serenity of his beats, the rhythm of how the music ultimately makes your body want to move.  Traveling the world with his music, Jounce continues to evolve his craft with culture, new music and feedback from the crowd.  As a fairly new DJ that is getting a lot of radio play, we couldn’t help but to love him more and more. Introducing Jounce, a DJ favorite by all.

 jounce1

1. Introduce yourself in 5 words or less.

Your mama’s favorite rising DJ

2. What do you think sets you apart from other DJs?

I’m always listening from the dance floor’s perspective because I enjoy dancing myself.  It’s amazing how many DJ’s don’t actually dance … isn’t that like a chef who doesn’t eat?  I don’t really set boundaries or definitions.  So if it sounds good, I’ll spin it … regardless of who else likes or hates it, who wrote it, or what category it’s been boxed into.  Also, I started out as a musician, so I try to mix harmonically and apply musicianship to my production which feeds into my DJ’ing.

3. When did you realize you wanted to be in the music industry?

My passion’s been music since as early as I can remember.  I never thought about being in the “industry”, but I guess that’s just what happens over time when you make it your livelihood as well.

4. How were you introduced to the world of Electronic Music?

One of my friends would voluntarily make mix-CDs for me before I even started DJ’ing.  It was cool because there were no track or artist names, pictures or anything else but the music … so I got to listen without any biases.

5. What is something about you we wouldn’t know by looking at you?

My heart rate is abnormally low.  I’m active, but the furthest thing from a marathon runner.  I’ve been clocked at 35 BPM.  No DJ should ever be at that BPM.

jounce2

6. How do you define sexy?

Something that makes you salivate that you’re not “supposed” to eat.

7. What’s the sexiest City? Hotel? Club? Music Festival? Song?

Las Vegas.  Artisan in Vegas.  XS in Vegas.  Electric Daisy Carnival.  As of right now, my new track “Vs. Doppelganger”, especially with Stefni’s vocals.

8. What is your favorite music festival you have ever performed at and why?

I closed out the main stage at the Sunset Music Festival 2012 in Miami.  I met some of the coolest people ever … and I still keep in touch with them.

9. What music festival are you most looking forward to and why?

Ultra Music Festival.  One of my goals is to DJ there.

10. Will you be introducing new music throughout your tour dates?

Yes!  I’ve been busy in the studio and will release new tracks all year long.  Stay tuned … follow me at www.FaceBook.com/DjJounce!

11. What are the pros and cons of touring?

Pros: Experiencing new environments and cultures, meeting new people, and sharing the thrill of music with them.  Cons: Crazy travel itineraries.  During my recent Asia tour, I DJ’d in 3 countries in 3 days so that weekend was non-stop airports and traffic.

jounce3

12. Which 3 musicians, dead or alive, do you respect the most and why?

Hendrix because he was self-taught and developed his approach by truly feeling the music and let that inspire his songwriting and unorthodox playing.  Michael Jackson because he actually wrote a lot of his songs … and there is no other musician’s songs (or remixes) that I think could work for a greater variety of audiences … past, present or future.  I should mention someone in the EDM world, huh?  Swedish House Mafia, at least as producers, have created some of my favorite EDM tracks that I know will continue to inspire me years later.  I also respect that they were very successful individually, yet were able to create as one.

13. What advice would you give to an aspiring DJ?

DJ because you love music.  If you want something else out of it, you’ll get something else, but it probably won’t be what you really want.

14. What’s next for Jounce?

Lots of new releases starting with “Vs. Doppelganger”, which also has a music video in the works.  Plenty of other shows.  This summer, I’ll be touring in Europe, including Ibiza.  Also, my revamped web site www.DjJounce.com is about to launch.

15. What are your three simple luxuries?

My freedom.  My health.  Good music.  I don’t take anything for granted.

Thanks buddy!
