Is that Robert Downey Jr. hittin’ the decks ? Nope, that’s just Benny B – often thought of as one of the most charming, down to earth, internationally respected and treasured artists within the industry today.

Following another impressive set by UNIUN residents Manzone & Strong, Benny Benassi took the stage for his first ever performance at UNIUN nightclub. Though far from the comfort of his hometown Reggio Emilia, Benny was quick to settle in after receiving a grandiose salutation from this Toronto audience.

Thats right, AQUA EDM will still go on as scheduled on April 10th in Albany, NY. The one change is that  AQUA EDM & NV Concepts just made this show so much bigger, they have moved the location to the Times Union Center. This change comes after EDM Shows were canceled at the Washington Avenue Armory following a riot during a Migos concert, bringing the venues security under scrutiny and prompting a probe by the state. But now the experience of AQUA EDM’s 3D floating water holograms, massive water screens, towering fountains, and mist will be that much more extreme! This event prides itself on its production, but you can’t forget about the massive lineup. AQUA EDM features headliner Borgeous, supporting acts Twalle, “World Champion Drumming Sensation” Baard Kolstad, and Bandikook. The show is all general admission, with a VIP upgrade available for an additional charge. With all the effort put into making this show happen you can bet that April 10th will be a night you remember for a very long time!  [Read more…]

Destiny and Embrace present Bassweek 2015!Now in its 5th annual year, Bassweek will feature 2 weekends of international Drum & Bass artists, to the city of Toronto on March 20th & 21st and March 27th, 28th & 29th.

Weekend 1 will kick off Friday March 20th at The Hoxton with Projek: The World Of Drum & Bass feat. Drumsound & Baseline Smith, DJ SS, The Prototypes, MC Toddlah + More. D&B would not be the same without Headliners Drumsound and Baseline Smith (aka Andy Wright, Benjamin Wiggett and Simon Baseline Smith). Together the trio have body-slammed dance floors from Derby to Durban and entrenched themselves as three of the finest drum’n’bass tastemakers. Saturday March 21st brings Projek: Hospitality at The Phoenix Concert Theatre with acts like Metrik, Etherwood, Nu:Tone + More. Etherwood is the most recent signing to Med School and is undoubtedly one of the most promising young talents in the scene today. Fusing the upbeat energy of Drum & Bass, with the chilled atmospheric moods of reverb-heavy guitar and delayed piano rolls, it’s hard to believe Etherwood only started producing two years ago.
