The world of EDM is always a curious one. I find myself writing headlines daily about subjects that seem to only lend credence to the idea that at some point we broke off into an alternate timeline. Today, I bring you fine folks the news that Dimitri Vegas of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will
Dimitri Thivaios (aka Dimitri Vegas) is joining the International Marvel Cinematic Universe. As one-half of the beloved Belgian DJ duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Thivaios is doing right by his superhero fan side in turning success into opportunity.
As one of the biggest dance music acts in the world, the duo has earned some creative involvement with the Disney-owned company in the past, including a limited edition clothing line with Spider-Man inspired designs (unfortunately, the sale only took place through the month of August 2018). “It is a great honor to be able to design and release this Spidey collection,” he said in a statement. “My 12-year old self would be proud!”
Thivaios will voice Peter Parker in the Dutch-dubbed version of Marvel’s upcoming animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Laura Tesoro, Koen De Bouw, Alex Agnew, William Boeva, and Jenne Decleir are also set to join the cast that will bridge the language gap for the Netherlands.
Snoop Dogg has made his position on experimenting with music quite prominent in recent years, branching out from his well-known rap career into ventures like his reggae ego Snoop Lion, and even into DJing that came alongside a highly talked-about Boiler Room set. He dives even deeper into the electronic space — this time, on the commercial side of the spectrum — with Julian Banks, Bassjackers, and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike for an infectious, “Bounce.”
The single errs more toward Snoop’s roots, featuring silky verses from the rapper that lead into a festival trap-laden drop that feels a far cry from what one thinks they’d hear from his collaborators, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. While the piece might be a bit too rough for radio play, it hits hard on the main stage and will more than likely make its rounds as an anthem throughout the coming months.
Tomorrowland releases the initial headliners for the festival’s debut winter edition. Tomorrowland Winter was first announced in March, and the headliners consist of the usual suspects plus a couple surprises.
At an altitude of over 2000 meters, festival stages will be built in the Alpe d’Huez, one of the highest rated ski resorts in Europe. Tickets available will include amenities such as lodging, skiing passes, and a week to remember as the biggest EDM music festival in the world launches the new winter offshoot.
Fans are able to pre-register for tickets at the Tomorrowland Winter website. Seven day packages go on sale Saturday, September 8 at 11am EST. Four day packages go on sale Saturday, September 15 at 11am EST.
The EP kicks off with “Unity,” a heavy collaboration with Hardwell. Festival synths and hardstyle rhythms take over, surprising listeners. Nicky Romero’s feature samples The Chemical Brothers‘ “Hey Boy, Hey Girl,” in another hardstyle heater. “Opa” with KSHMR takes advantage of Greek influences using Bouzouki sounds and electro-house rhythms.
“Arcade Mammoth” is as big and wide as the title suggests. Plucking synths that lead into trance synth melodies is exactly what listeners would expect from this collaboration between Dutch duo, W&W, and the No. 2 DJs on DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs list.
There are two Bassjackers alliances on the EP, “All I Need” and “The Jungle.” Both combine elements of trap, electro, and bass music using trap rhythms and eclectic synth whomps.
The project culminates with a calmer verse than previous tracks. Around the two-minute mark, listeners are met with that signature hardstyle fans know and love from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Wiz Khalifa’s vocals add a cooling contrast from the bigger synth play.
#1 DJs Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have partnered up with popular DJ-producer, Nicky Romero, to release their latest single, “Here We Go (Hey Boy, Hey Girl). This new track delivers a classic beat with melodies that will have you anticipating for an epic breakdown. The catchy vocals will have you reminiscing of the Chemical
