Event: Deadmau5 takes over for Avicii again @ XS Nightclub in Las Vegas

4012803

As you all know, Avicii has had some medical complications over the past few weeks and had to be rushed to the hospital about a day before he was set to perform at Ultra Music Festival. Prays up for Avicii and we hope he gets well soon. Because of his long road to recovery, he again had to cancel two more shows at the famous XS Nightclub in Las Vegas on April 18th and April 25th. The club is baller by the way and is probably one of the biggest party scenes in the world and is a hub for commercial EDM. So who would XS think to replace Avicii? Yah, the Mau5. Deadmau5 has been confirmed to fill in for Avicii’s April 25th date and Zedd will take over on the 18th as well. I expect the night to be filled with more trolling and hopefully some new material as Joel has been hard at work. Last November he surprised the crowd with an epic performance before headliner Wolfgang Gartner but otherwise has been pretty quiet when it comes to Vegas. While some are pretty upset with his shenanigans at Ultra, there’s no doubt that fans will be lining up out the door to see the genius at work. He will also be playing the next day at the Encore Beach Club. I should really move to Vegas.

If you want to hear more about what Joel has been up to. Hit the jump and find out…

Mixtape: Me & My Headphones (Vol. IV)

tumblr_lga0x5qtXX1qcjmrko1_1280

This edition I just put together some of the tunes I’m listening to now and some of the awesome submissions that we’ve been getting over the past week. All the remixes are pretty solid and worth the listen. The remixes of “Stay The Night” and “Counting Stars” stood out and the bootleg of “Animals” and “New Scene” by STOGS I thought worked really well. Gets a little slower towards the end as I had to add some hip hop but if you’re throwing a party or somethin’ the Ultra Mix has everything. Enjoy the weekend guys! If anyone is interested in writing for us just hit up our contacts and send us a message.

“You Make Me (Diplo & Ookay Remix)” by Avicii

Avicii-You-Make-Me-pumpthebeat.comAvicii gets the trap treatment by Diplo and Ookay. Both producers are huge players in the trap/hip-hop game. It seems like these guys can’t ever get enough of the rolling snares and the laser synths. “You Make Me” being more of a funky, pop track released by Avicii mid-2013, it’s cool to see it completely change. As a quick note, if there are any writers out there in the NYC area, please let us know. We’re looking to bring you on board!

Release Date: TBA

“Miami 82 (Avicii Edit)” by Syn Cole

syn-cole-miami-82-avicii-edit-le7els

In my humble opinion, I think Avicii is highly overrated. I continually download his new music and find it sounding bland, or simply sounding the same as the rest of his music. This song, however, proves me wrong. “Miami 82 (Avicii Edit)” is ridiculous, and is a unique track with varying sounds. Expect this banger to hit live sets across the globe, it’s simply amazing to listen to. Also expect an extended edit in the future. Enjoy.

“Dear Boy [Dave Edwards Remix]” by Avicii x Daft Punk

dave edwards-pumpthebeat.com

Dave Edwards has to be one of my favorite DJ’s right now. He always manages to successfully take songs and spice them up a bit by giving them his signature electropop sound. This mashup is his latest release and it happens to be a great follow up to his remix of Duke Dumont’s “Need U (100%).” Here he combined Avicii’s “Dear Boy” and Daft Punk’s “Harder Better Faster Stronger” and created a fun, new dance hit. Be sure to play this track throughout your Thursday night festivities!

Video: “Speed” by Avicii

Congrats to Pavel Kim for winning the music video competition for this song. This Russian filmmaker, possibly inspired by Tron, did a great job with this video that Avicii released back in July for free. Check it out for yourself.
