Since the major success of “Reboot,” in 2011, Ozcan’s slung out hits that have been played out all over the world. With massive tracks like “Raise Your Hands,” “Smash,” “Superwave,” and “The Hum,” featuring Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, it’s no surprise that Ozcan’s become a coveted act on the international festival circuit.
In 2017, he dropped off four effervescent singles on Spinnin’ Records. Now, following in the footsteps of his annual “Final Bang” year mixes, Ozcan’s delivered a tantalizing testament to Spinnin’ Records’ last year in review. Ozcan’s mix embeds tracks like “The Next Episode” and “Sweet Dreams,” making for an enthralling array of music that points to how much higher Ozcan will likely ascend in the time to come.

There is perhaps no better time to be a Northeast resident than right now.
Taking on the role of electronic dance music’s very own Santa Claus this year, Eric Prydz is gifting fans in Toronto, New York, and DC with a series of shows at the tail end of December that will not only close out the month, but will also take Prydz and his listeners into the new year.
Prydz shared the dates and locations of the bookings today, which show Prydz kicking off the first of five consecutive performances at Brooklyn’s Output nightclub on December 28th. Prydz will then make his way to Toronto for a December 29th performance, later heading back to Brooklyn for a December 30th and January 1st New Year’s Day appearance.
Some simply watch the ball drop, others watch it descend in sync with a beat drop. Echostage attendees on New Year’s Eve on December 31st will ring in the new year with the latter as Prydz takes over Washington, DC to usher in 2018.
Tickets to the shows will go on sale on Friday at 10 AM ET, an affair sure to be short lived, with Prydz tickets never lingering long in stock once made available to the public.
