Introducing: Swanky Tunes

Hailing from Russia, Swanky Tunes is an electronic collective made up of Dmitry Burykin, Stanislav Zaytsev and Vadim Bagdasaryan. Formed in 1998, Swanky Tunes started experimenting with different electronic styles to create their own sound. In the beginning they played techno sounds mixed with vintage synthesizers and after that the group created a distinctly big-beat influenced sound. Nowadays their music is a mix of techno tunes, electro-80’s and contemporary progressive house. In 2006 and 2007 Swanky Tunes were nominated as ‘Best Musical Group’ at the Russian Dance Music Awards.

Swanky Tunes’ tracks and remixes have been released on some of the biggest labels around the globe, including Axtone, Mixmash, Spinnin’ Records, Refune, Size Records and Cr2 Records. Their releases have been heavily supported by: Tiësto, David Guetta, Sander van Doorn, Swedish House Mafia, Laidback Luke and Dirty South.

Swanky Tunes recently collaborated with Tiësto on the track, “Make Some Noise ft. Ben McInerney of New Navy”. They’ve also just finished a release with Kaskade “No One Knows Who We Are” which will be out soon. Other exciting news is the launch of their brand new label, “SHOWLAND”, with the release of there first track “Blood Rush” 3rd of September 2012 on beatport preview here, also an upcoming track with Hard Rock Sofa, Matisse & Sadko.

Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ European Summer Tour 2012

Afrojack, one of the world’s most prominent DJs and producers, is about to set off on the largest European summer tour in his career. For over two months, Afrojack will cross almost every border in Europe to play the continent’s most prestigious festivals and venues starting on the sixth of July. Afrojack will visit nineteen different countries in less than three months to play at an imposing total of over forty shows including Tomorrowland (Belgium), Creamfields (England), Balaton Sound (Hungary) and Global Gathering (England and Ukraine).

Besides playing at Europe’s most anticipated summer events, Afrojack adds several of his own ‘Jacked’ events to his hectic schedule. The ‘Jacked’ events at Ibiza’s legendary club Amnesia, BCM Mallorca and a ‘Jacked’ take-over during ‘F*** Me I’m Famous’ at Pacha Ibiza – hosted by world’s #1 DJ David Guetta – are assured highlights of Afrojack’s extensive summer tour.

Since the foundation of Afrojack’s ‘Jacked’ in July 2011, the party concept has expanded to one of world’s most popular club nights. R3hab, Shermanology, Apster and Bobby Burns, who all form a part of Afrojack’s valued imprint Wall Recordings, will join Afrojack during the upcoming ‘Jacked’ events and select dates of the tour.

Afrojack returns to Europe right after his first own ‘Jacked’ tour in North America. The #7 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 hosted over 40 of his infamous ‘Jacked’ parties in cities like Miami, Las Vegas, Chicago, New York and Atlantic City. In addition to his own tour dates, Afrojack delivered mind-blowing performances at multiple major American festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Daisy Carnival New York and Coachella.

Soon after this summer tour, Afrojack will release his long awaited album. Afrojack produced the album earlier this year during his stay in Los Angeles and will include collaborations with a number of world known artists. Afrojack will surely preview tracks of this forthcoming album during his shows in the next months.

Swedish House Mafia stopt ermee

Swedish House Mafia houdt het toeren voor gezien. Dat schrijven de drie dj’s op hun website. Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell Hedfors begonnen jaren geleden in het uitgaansleven van de Zweedse hoofdstad aan hun carrière.

In 2010 werd de band in ons land bekend door het nummer One.

Dat nummer werd door Armin van Buuren gedraaid tijdens de huldiging van het Nederlands elftal. Het is niet duidelijk of de drie house-dj’s ook met hun samenwerking stoppen.

Alexander Popov – When The Sun (Official Music Video)

To Russian producer Alexander Popov, there’s much more on the horizon than that big, warm globe of fire. With his new beat-beauty ‘When The Sun’, he once again proves to be able to capture the senses and tingle our world.

Throughout the course of 5 years, Alexander Popov has worked himself up as one of EDM’s ‘names to watch out for’. ‘Everest’, ‘Revolution In You’ and his latest tune ‘Elegia’, as well as remixes for Armin van Buuren, Susana and M6, have made his sound a sound well-treasured. ‘When The Sun’ is next in line to build him a solid discography.

But most of all, to indulge the masses. This light-hearted rocktronica bit of prog-trance easily gets under your skin. Its contagious vocals and easy melodic flow will get stuck in your mind in no time.
