David Guetta Praises ‘Amazing’ Grammy-Nominated Collaborator Avicii

Posted by MTV News On December - 5 - 2011

By Akshay Bhansali

Swedish electronic dance music DJ-producer Tim Berg winds down 2011 seemingly seated on a throne. Under his Avicii stage moniker, he has arguably one of the most popular dance music singles of the year, “Levels,” which was recently released by Interscope and has a hilarious music video to accompany it. He sits just above Afrojack at #6 on DJ Mag’s list of top 10 most popular DJs on the planet. And more recently, a song he co-produced with David Guetta, “Sunshine,” was nominated for a Grammy for Best Dance Recording.

Underscoring the accolade, MTV News caught up with Guetta this weekend, where the dance music icon sang Berg’s praises. Check it out below:

“He’s an amazing new talent,” Guetta says. “I think he has a great future. In the same way that I met with Afrojack two years ago and was like, ‘Wow this kid is amazing!’ and I tried to help him as much as I could, last year I met Avicii.”

“I just love to collaborate with the new generation because we inspire each other. In the same way that it was interesting for me to collaborate with will.i.am or Usher, people like this,” Guetta continued. “It’s also interesting to work with people that are maybe new to the DJ world. Even if they don’t have as much experience, they come with a new perspective, and I love that!”

For Avicii fans in the New York area that were looking to hit up Avicii’s sold-out New Year’s show at Pier 94 – fret not! Additional tickets will go on sale at aviciinye.com tomorrow, December 6 at 10AM EST. Get ‘em while you can!

Guetta also divulged that fans should keep a look out for a Guetta, Avicii and Nicky Romero banger, which will be coming out soon!

Posted by MTV News On December - 5 - 2011

By Adam Stewart (@AdamMTVNews)

Get out your noisemakers and silly hats, New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. You either love it or hate, it, but let’s get real, you know when it comes down to it, no matter how much you resist, you’re going to end up doing something on the last night of 2011.

Now, you could hit up that house party in town and hope the girl you’ve been eying runs up to you for a smooch when the big hand is on the little hand at midnight, or you can be smart and knock her socks off by taking her to one of the hottest parties in the country. What do you have to lose? After all, if the Mayans are right, it’ll be your last NYE on earth anyway. So saddle up, take a stand against “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve” and let this handy MTV News’ guide to an EDM infused NYE be your beacon for beats.

NEW YORK

>>> Avicii at Pier 94
Selling out in less than an hour, EDM’s hottest rising star is taking over Pier 94 with support from Arty and Swanky Tunes for a once in a lifetime riverfront bash — and the party continues into New Year’s Day as Boris and Victor Calderone keep it thumping with Apocalypse 2012. Whichever your pleasure, 15,000 crazed fans in a 135,000-square foot structure with a zillion big ass speakers? Sign us up! (Note: a little birdie tells us more tickets are being released very soon!)

>>> Deadmau5 at Pier 36
Maybe it’s “Pier Pressure,” but our favorite Canadian is taking his sight and sound spectacular to Gotham in similar fashion, and knowing the visual effects package he rolls with we’re sure this won’t be anything short of awesome. Don’t be surprised if you see Lady Liberty sporting a Mau5head for the night.

Read on for more!

>>> Laidback Luke “Super You & Me” at Pacha
Take out your masks and capes! The Dutch super DJ brings his infamous road show to the Big Apple, so get ready for some big fun. With Sandro Silva, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano on the bill, this super bash will be spectacular.

>>> DJ Pauly D at GLO Nightclub (Westbury, Long Island)
Looking to stay away from a million lunatics descending upon Manhattan? Head just east of NYC to this swanky setup, where everyone’s favorite celebrity DJ will be pushing their state of the art sound system into overdrive. Fist-pump. Push-ups. Chapstick. Yeah, buddy!

MIAMI

>>> Axwell @ The Pool at Fontainebleau
Last year, Tiësto and Max Vangeli turned the pool into a hot tub, and now, the hotel that brought us Miami’s sexiest club LIV, presents an al fresco bash hosted by Swedish House Mafia’s Axwell. What’s up, what’s up, wanna party? Yes Ax, we do!

>>> Jacked 2012 NYE Miami With Afrojack & Bobby Burns at Wet (The W Hotel)
The big man will transform the W’s swanky outdoor oasis into one of the sickest parties in the town with Bobby Burns. Bring your rubber Bangducky!

>>> Alesso at Wall (The W Hotel)
With Afrojack holding down the fort outside, one of the hottest new names of 2011 will be crushing it inside one of Miami’s most exclusive venues.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

>>> Porter Robinson, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell, Bart B More, Madeon, and R3hab – OMFG @ the San Diego Sports Arena
Uh, say whaaaat? If you live in San Diego you must, I repeat MUST, get your butt to this show. Bopping around the Gaslamp district on a “Top Gun” photo scavenger hunt can be accomplished any of the other 364 nights of the year.

>>> Kaskade, Benny Benassi, Paul Van Dyke, Dada Life – Insomiac White Wonderland
The people at Insomniac take their name literally (’cause we don’t know when they sleep!), pumping out another mega event just two months after their last, Escape From Wonderland over Halloween Weekend. Where else can you get-your-satisfaction-while-doing-the-Dada-for-an-Angel-on-your-shoulder (get it!?)? Oh, and if that’s not enough, come back on New Year’s Day for round two when Steve Angello, Max Vangeli, AN21 and Thomas Gold hit the stage. WOW! White wardrobe required or you’ll be sitting in the parking lot tailgating by your lonesome.

MILWAUKEE

>>> Skrillex at The Rave
It’s not all about the big EDM cities this NYE. Insomniac & Stellar Spark bring an epic night to Brew City with Alvin Risk and a laundry list of locals including DJ JSlay, Ill Nasty, NoizePollution, Danaconda, Tista, Carlito, DJ Tilex, Tails & DJ Casey Lee. Who cares if the average January temperature is like 50 below zero, this place is going to be on fire!

VANCOUVER

>>> Solid NYE 2012 Tiesto with Gareth Emery at the Pacific Coliseum
Yeah yeah, we know, Van City isn’t technically in the states, but it’s so close to Seattle that all you under-21s can cross the border and enjoy a city whose drinking age is 19 — gotta love our neighbors to the North! The Godfather of Dance pairs up with trance icon Gareth Emery for a night full of hockey fans, glow sticks and Pountine (yummy!).

LAS VEGAS

>>> LMFAO at Haze Nightclub
Party Rock is gonna be in the house that night, for real. Be one of the people who are actually seeing the group who wrote the song that 99 percent of all bars and nightclubs in the world will play at least 3 times before the ball even drops. Bring your neon pants.

>>> Paul Oakenfold at Rain (The Palms)
Oakie and Rain go together like champagne and creamed herring. So what better place for him to ring in the new year than on his home turf at the Las Vegas’ original mega club at the Palms?

>>> Steve Angello – XS (Wynn/Encore)
It doesn’t get much bigger than Size coming to one of LV’s most buzzed about venues. XS brings Swedish House Mafia’s Angello to the booth for an epic evening full of cutting edge sounds and what’s sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town.

>>> Kaskade at Marquee (The Cosmopolitan)
Does the man ever sleep? After an early set at White Wonderland, Kaskade jet sets to Vegas to close out the night at one of Vegas’ sexiest clubs. Get there early, like “I’m waiting on line for the new iPhone 5 a week early” early if you want a fighting chance to see Kaskade bring down the house and welcome 2012.

An Intimate Evening With Girl Talk

Posted by MTV News On December - 5 - 2011

By Zachary Swickey

NORMAN, OKLA. – I couldn’t believe my eyes when I read that the world’s greatest party-thrower, Girl Talk, was going to be at the Opolis – a tiny venue in the college town of Norman, Oklahoma, that showcases indie acts and local bands with a capacity well below 200. This must be some kind of mistake, I thought, but just the thought of seeing such a huge act in such an intimate setting was awesome.

Turns out, Girl Talk – also known by his common name, Greg Gillis – is in the midst of a guerilla tour of sorts that is hitting up only eight college cities across the states. For the AXE One Night Only Tour 2011, Gillis is going old-school by performing secret shows in low capacity venues, announcing details of the gigs just days before show time via the AXE Facebook page (four more secret stops are scheduled for this Tuesday through Friday, so be on the lookout). Gillis treated me to a quick phone chat before the show and said this tour is a way to give back to the fans and reminisce over his pre-breakout gigs. “Prior to 2006, I would play anyplace, anytime,” he told MTV News. “The circumstances did not matter.”

Gillis performs anywhere from 150-200 plus times a year, so I knew he’d have some strange show stories. Asked if anything stuck out, in particular, he recounted opening for Blues Traveler and the Violent Femmes at Colorado’s famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre on the 4th of July in 2007. “I think they were expecting me to be some kind of background DJ or something who played music as everyone walks in,” he said. “Instead, I was up there shirtless and screaming doing what I do right as the doors were opening and the first 100 people were shuffling to find their seats.”

Girl Talk

I was also curious as to whether any of the musicians that Gillis has sampled have approached him to give their seal of approval, and was surprised when he told me that Big Boi caught his show in a “small, sweaty club” in Atlanta sometime in 2007-08. An even bigger glowing sign of approval apparently came from Mike Patton (singer of Faith No More). Gillis samples Patton’s group along with Busta Rhymes in a song and when a reporter asked Patton how he felt about it, he responded, “It was an honor to work with Busta Rhymes.” (How’s that for a glowing recommendation?)

When Gillis finally took the stage Saturday night, the crowd showered him with applause before things even began, and it didn’t take long for our party commander to lead us into “Oh No,” the opening track of his 2010 release, All Day, which finds the mash-up mastermind mixing the rhyming talents of Ludacris over the notorious “War Pigs” riff from Black Sabbath. I was wondering what a Girl Talk show without his onstage party henchman was going to be like, but lo and behold, he brought them! Two or three crew members (it’s hard to tell who was official or not) still managed to fit into the small venue to shoot confetti cannons and blast spiraling toilet paper rolls over our heads (not to mention the hundreds of small and giant-size balloons being tossed about).

It’s a good thing Gillis wraps his laptops in saran wrap for protection – he told me he’s had “only one” computer casualty this year – because by the time he got to “Bodies Hit the Floor” (which is the only time you’ll hear Foo’s “Hero” next to Luda’s “Move B**ch”) midway through the set he was drenched in sweat from head to toe and dripping all over the place as he danced while hovering over his laptop.

One of the crowd favorites – another All Day track, “Steady Shock” – was a trip down memory lane that brought together Outkast’s “B.O.B.,” Nirvana’s “Aneurysm” and some Bones Thugs N Harmony, while also keeping it modern with a little Nicki Minaj and J. Cole thrown in the mix. Time flew by as the show soon ended and Gillis flung himself into the crowd with high-fives coming from all directions.

I asked Gillis if he’ll be continuing his pattern of giving us a new release every two years (we’re due for one in 2012), and while he wouldn’t comment specifically on what he’s up to, he assured me he’d be releasing something in 2012 and that it might be “something different.”

Premiere: Porter Robinson’s ‘The College Invasion Tour’ Mini-Doc

Posted by MTV News On November - 30 - 2011

By Akshay Bhansali

At 19-years old, Porter Robinson is already among the most explosive, versatile DJ-producers in electronic dance music. With banging tracks that range from electro house to dubstep to moombahton, Porter has come a long way since MTV News first met the then-18-year-old high schooler from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with buddies Aero, Tommy Lee, Sofi and deadmau5 at Miami Music Week in March of this year. Since then, he’s dropped his stellar Spitfire EP and toured the U.S. with Tommy Lee, Aero and Skrillex. And when it came time for one of dance music’s biggest icons to hit college campuses across America this September, Porter was handpicked by Tiësto to join him on his “College Invasion Tour.” Luckily for us, and you fans, Porter brought along a cameraman to document the last week of his history-making trek. Shot by Kaskade and Insomniac Events’ brilliant cameraman, Justin Nizer, MTV is proud to premiere Porter Robinson’s “The College Invasion Tour” mini-doc, featuring cameos by Tiësto and Diplo … and MTV News, to name a few.

Check it out below!

Set mainly to joints off of Porter’s Spitfire EP, the short film takes fans through PR’s final west coast dates in September, ranging from an unannounced Santa Barbara show after-party at a house to his record-setting show in Carson before an audience of 26,000 people. Through the film, audiences are treated to the rollercoaster ride of life on the road of a superstar DJ. Wanna know what’s on PR’s rider? How he describes 2011 and his fans? Check out the video above, or tune in at 3:30 AM this Thursday on MTV Clubland (MTV’s block of electronic dance music videos airing Monday through Friday from 3-4 AM EST)! You won’t want to miss it.

Sofi and Skrillex Collab ‘Bring Out The Devil’ Nearly Wiped Out on Locked & Loaded EP

Posted by MTV News On November - 23 - 2011

By Nick Philippou

Sofi is climbing the ladder yet again on her new two-part EP Locked & Loaded, which hit the online charts on production pal and mega-producer Deadmau5’s Mau5trap label just a few weeks ago. Part one of the two-installment EP includes “Broken Souvenirs’ and “Joyride” both collaborations with dubstep collective and fellow Mau5trap signee Millions Like Us. But while part one is making the rounds in due fashion, buzz is building around the second installment of Locked & Loaded, “Bring Out the Devil” and a collaboration with Skrillex and Kill the Noise, which almost disappeared from the album entirely.

“The tragic story is that we recorded the track about a year ago and his hard drive was stolen, his computer, everything he had was stolen in Italy. He called up Kill the Noise and was like, ‘Hey, can you save the day and reproduce the track?’ And he did,” Sofi told MTV News. “And it was amazing!”

Once the first drafts of “Bring Out the Devil” were lost, Skrillex’s demanding touring schedules and Sofi’s tour dates on Deadmau5’s “Meowington’s Hax” tour prevented the song from being the first release on the album. So the song took on a new life and a new sound, pairing Sofi’s soft voice with Skrillex’s finishing touches with Kill the Noise smashing out a hard track, combining it all into something musically unique.

Originally slated as the debut track on the first installment of the EP, “Bring Out The Devil” will be released instead on part two of Locked & Loaded, available on iTunes and Beatport on December 5.

“It has that rawness to it,” Sofi said. “I feel like it’s such a mash up of things at this point and it’s so hard to pin point just a genre. It’s electronic dubstep. I don’t know where it’s going. For me personally, I’m just having a good time with it. I’m not really stuck on, ‘Oh my gosh is this dubstep?’ I love this kind of music and I enjoy making it right now.”

Since his arrival to Deadmau5’s Mau5trap label, Skrillex has to some extent become the modern face of dubstep and its rapidly growing fan base, which ranges from pre-teens and frat boys to aging rock-nostalgists.

Sofi’s previous smash-hit collaborations with Deadmau5, including “Sofi Needs a Ladder” and “One Trick Pony,” made a pairing with her Mau5trap label-mate not only logical but necessary for EDM fans that have fully embraced Skrillex, who is breaking the popular mold of expectations from an EDM artist, and his rock roots.

“It’s almost like seeing him on the cover of Spin is normal,” she said. “But knowing that he is doing electronic music right now is weird at the same time because Spin is not really that type of magazine.”
After joining Deadmau5 for a record six straight nights at New York City’s famed Roseland Ballroom, Sofi drew parallels between a previous popular music movement and the current swell EDM is experiencing.

“It does feel like it’s almost like the new punk rock in a sense from seeing what’s going on in the crowds when we’re performing too when we’re doing tracks like “One Track Pony” and there’s a mosh-pit going on. It has that raw energy I feel like punk rock might have had in the eighties, when I was in diapers.”
