Following his recent nomination as one of the Top 10 L.A. DJs by The L.A. Sun Times with Dillon Francis, Kill Paris, Kill The Noise and Ookay, today Hollywood producer/DJ Whiiite sets out on his winter mini-tour hitting Kansas City, Murfreesboro, Las Vegas and more – full tour routing is below.
Along with this exciting announcement, the fifth podcast in Whiiite’s new Miiilkcrate Radio series is here and it’s absolutely stacked! Falcons x Mike G “Oh!” (Ciara x Ludacris) is fire and kicks things off with a bang, and tracks from Galantis, SNBRN, The Weeknd, Aaliyah, Jack U and more keep the energy flowing. The massive “No Type of Landline” remix from Rae Sremmurd, A-Trak and GTA begins the transition into some rap tracks including a killer Biggie x Ice Cube mashup. The carefully crafted mix also features also a brief section of hard hitting trap with Gladiator before things begin to settle down. Whiiite weaves g-house, R&B and hip hop together with highly danceable beasts throughout the podcast, including his fresh new remix of Juicy J’s “Low” (Whiiite’s Future1Hundred Mix) which you can download for free right HERE.

Martin Solveig returns to the spotlight with yet another masterful slice of musical and video genius, bursting at the seams with all the essential ingredients you’d expect from one of France’s most prolific, hard working and diverse exports.
Following the inescapable hysteria that was “Hello” – with over 1.2 million copies sold in the US to date – and the ensuing “SMASH” album and video series, this latest offering is gathering pace at an unprecedented rate. “Hey Now” – out now on Big Beat Records – is the first of several collaborations Solveig has lined up for 2013, as he takes a more experimental approach to making and delivering the music and videos he is oh so famous for. Smattered with that Solveig pop frivolity and fun factor we’ve all grown to love, lashings of big bass, synth, Solveig wizardry and that all-important ‘hum-along’ factor, “Hey Now” the record and indeed video has it all!
Having already received huge support from DJs (David Guetta, Diplo, Madeon, Kaskade, Bingo players and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike to name just a few) and radio shows across the world, Martin’s unique take on unadulterated fun is showing all the right signs of becoming a must-have track for the impending summer. Combining his own trademark sounds with those from The Cataracs and new kid on the block Kyle, this release has all the hallmarks of a bona fide Martin Solveig smash.
With remixes already in from the likes of Carnage
and Laidback Luke
, and with further edits from Lemâitre and Tommie Sunshine to come – there’s sure to be something for everyone. The single and video is out on right now with exclusive remix package to follow over the coming weeks.
Martin Solveig North America Tour Dates:
May 29 – NYC @ Marquee
May 31 – San Francisco @ Ruby Skye
June 1- Las Vegas @ Encore Beach Club
June 1 – Las Vegas @ XS
July 11 – Quebec City @ Festival D’ete De Quebec

Afrojack (Nick van de Wall) is nominated as “Best Remixer” for his work on Leona Lewis’ song “Collide.” The remix, which was released last July on J Records, became an instant sensation and is still riding a wave of success in clubs and through radio airplay across the globe.
When given the news an elated Nick van de Wall had this to say:
“I can’t believe the news!! To be nominated again is incredible! This is a real honor…thank YOU!!!” –Afrojack
Afrojack was nominated (and subsequently won) his first Grammy in the same category this past February for his and David Guetta’s remix of Madonna’s “Revolver.” Afrojack also worked on several high profile songs this year that have been recognized by The Recording Academy with Grammy nominations.
Although not personally nominated for his work, he is proud to have had a hand in these significant records:
Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” which is vying for “Best Rap Performace” and “Best Rap Song” respectively. (Afrojack is a co-producer on the song)
Nothing But The Beat by David Guetta, which is up for “Best Electronica Album” (Afrojack is a co-producer on the songs: “Titanium,” “Lunar,” “The Future” and “I Just Wanna”)

Winter Music Conference’s 26th annual program will take place March 8 – 12, 2011 at the Miami Beach Convention Center and other venues throughout Miami Beach and the greater Miami area. Last year WMC attracted 3,763 registered music industry participants from 70 countries and over 100,000 event participants who took part in five non-stop concentrated days of seminars, workshops, exhibits and performances.
Over its 26-year history WMC has become known by industry insiders, audiophiles and fans alike as the pre-eminent date for merchandisers and manufacturers launching new music, technology and trends in the music business. According to Billboard Magazine’s April 3, 2010 issue, “WMC demonstrates (that) dance music retains a powerful allure among brands looking to connect with young, engaged consumers.”
During WMC, more than 500 annual industry gatherings and performance events boast one of the most sought after aggregations of legendary and emerging artists to be found in the world. WMC’s drawing power for assembling innovative music professionals and launching effective global campaigns is demonstrated year after year with career-launching performances and new releases by artists that have historically included Lady Gaga (WMC 2008), Rihanna (WMC 2006), the Black Eyed Peas (WMC 2009) and featured appearances in 2010 by artists like Deadmau5 and Grammy winner David Guetta, amongst hundreds of others. Of his appearance during WMC 2010, The Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am told MTV News “I think it’s important to come out to WMC to test out the new beats you’ve been making — rockin’ the crowds, learning from the crowds”.
For 2011 WMC will continue to roll out new initiatives as part of its development plan bolstering the ‘WMC Experience’. Unlike previous events the conference has hosted at hotels such as the Fontainebleau and most recently the Eden Roc, this year will offer nearly unlimited opportunities for expansion and growth with its move to the Miami Beach Convention Center in the midst of South Beach. Organizers say “for many years WMC has been challenged to configure its rapidly developing program into limited meeting space.” This year we are able to offer the best of all worlds – enormous room for expansion of the industry program at one of the best locations in South Beach with easy access to the top venues, restaurants and beaches. We are also able to offer our delegates a diverse range of official WMC hotels from the historically luxurious Raleigh and Albion hotels to the plush new Grand Beach Hotel to the business-budget-minded South Beach Courtyard. Virtually every class of service, location and amenity at a price point to fit any budget are offered. WMC is widely known as one of the highest hotel occupancy generating events of the year in the South Florida area – so book your hotel stay early.
I’ve got loads of music news today; but it’s all going to be quite random…so brace yourselves.
FIRST of all, I’d like to mention that Modest Mouse is releasing an 8-track EP today called No One’s First, and You’re Next. They aren’t totally new songs, but rather new versions of outtakes from previous albums. Probably a good thing for anyone that isn’t very familiar with MM’s older stuff. Yes, they did exist before “Float On”.
Next, but of little importance, is the “comeback” of Limp Bizkit. I really have nothing to say about it, I’m only mentioning it because I just read a brief article of their reunion. If YOU are interested in reading more about it, then here’s the link I was looking at: “Limp Bizkit to Make U.S. Comeback, For Some Reason”
RATATAT will be releasing a new album sometime soon, though at this time, I don’t know when (and it’s bugging me!). What I DO know, is that Kid Cudi (the guy that does that song “Day n’ Nite”) is a fan. I like Kid Cudi’s popular single, but I did do a run through on his album and I think it might be the only song I really like. BUT, that’s not to say that others will like it. Plus, who knows? Maybe it’ll grow on me. I will say that Kid Cudi is much cooler than I originally thought just because Ratatat is an inspiration to him. And that the duo collaborated on Cudi’s debut Man on the Moon: The End of the Day (release date: September 15).
Other albums coming out in the near future:
August 18th – Cascada, Sean Paul, and Division Day (which I will be reviewing)
August 24th – David Guetta
August 25th – Imogen Heap, Matisyahu, Mew, Arctic Monkeys, and Jet
September 1st – Datarock
