Review: Edward Maya Performs in L.A.

Producer, Songwriter, Performer & DJ – Edward Maya (also known as Eduard Marian) is an internationally recognized music icon. With a plethora of hit singles, his unique & eclectic sounds have carved a niche of Euro-Pop music recognizable across the globe. What may be unknown to the general public is that Maya initially got his start when he produced Akcent’s album with top singles: Stay With Me, That’s My Name, When Lover’s Cry. Later in his career, his collaboration with Azeri composer Eldar Mansurov & Russian vocalist DJ Vika Jigulina was the winning ingredient to creating his #1 hit – Stereo Love. His other top singles include This is My Life and most recently, Desert Rain (reaching number 1 on radio stations in Greece, Turkey, & Canada).

In 2010, Maya created Mayavin records & Mayavin Agency that represents a slew of popular house/dance music artists: Ida Corr, Yolanda Be Cool, Steve Edwards, Nicola Fasano, Fragma, Gramophonedzie, Juan Magan, Stereo Palma, Chris Willis & of course himself! March 2011 is Edward Maya’s FIRST U.S. tour & I had the pleasure of seeing him live at Vanguard in Hollywood this past Saturday.

Well my experience at Vanguard in the past has luckily been enjoyable. My experience this time…well was a horrific nightmare. Upon arriving at the venue (around 10:30 pm) my friends and I were among a sea of angry and overly anxious people. Let me explain. The will call line was backed up so much that Vanguard’s lame excuse for security could not contain the mad crowd of people. After being verbally harassed and pushed by people, we found out that the power at will call was out and we wouldn’t be getting our tickets and only those who printed out their confirmation could get in the main entrance (lucky for my group – I had already done this). After waiting another hour, we were admitted into the event (no one even checked my print out). The incompetency of Vanguard’s management was clearly evident in not only their inability to efficiently execute a backup plan when their systems went out, but also organize the expected masses for this internationally acclaimed dj.

Ok on to the dj! Edward Maya didn’t come on stage until 1am, as expected. He immediately greeted the anxious crowd and introduced himself and singer Vika Jigulina. He then serenaded the audience with his accordion (now THIS was cool!) After that – he of course started performing his number one hit, Stereo Love. As you can imagine, the audience went CRAZY! See video below:

Shortly afterwards, he started singing This is My Life – another crowd pleaser of the night! See video below:

The rest of the night (well until I left at about 2:45am), Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina took turns DJ’ing. He played a lot of current mainstream house hits – David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia and mixed it in with classic artists such as Bon Jovi. I believe he effectively catered his song selections to the American crowd; however, I would have liked to have heard more Euro-House, Euro-Pop music — especially some of the songs he produced for Akcent or even his NEWEST single Desert Rain (maybe he played it after I left?). Overall, the night was entertaining and I had a great time with my friends ~just not sure I will ever go to Vanguard again!

New Mix: DJ D’Lish – IstanbuLove

For the LONGEST time, I have wanted to put together a mix of house music with a middle eastern influence – well the time has finally come! This mix is close to my heart, as a lot of the songs are produced and performed by Turkish DJs (I’m part Turkish). It is always a joy to travel to Istanbul, Turkey every summer and listen to some of these non-mainstream artists capture the essence of this beautiful country in their music & integrate these authentic sounds into the lounge and house genres.

Please enjoy!

The Winter Chill

It’s the beginning of a new year and my first official post of 2011. I hope you all enjoyed your New Years celebration and will stick to whatever new years resolution you came up with! I found this quote the other day: “When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.” Personally, I didn’t really come up with a new years resolution this year; however, this quote did inspire me and cause me to think. This year, I will do whatever it takes to grow, to love, and to become a better person, whether that means taking more risks, learning new things, opening myself up to new experiences and most importantly – being proactive about my life.

This first post doesn’t have a list of club bangers, but rather more chill songs for easy listening!

Hot Chip – I feel better (Max Cooper Remix)

Nothing is wasted and life is worth living
Heaven is nowhere, just look to the stars
There is a day that is yours for embracing
Everything’s nothing, and nothing is ours

Dzihan & Kamien – Homebase

Bonobo ft. Andreya Triana – Stay the Same

Seasons change
It will never be the same
I’m hopin’
I wïll stay the same
Reasons strange
Why we always play these games

Massive Attack – Paradise Circus (Gui Boratto Mix)

Metric – Hustle Rose

You could throw me a bone
If I get too close you wake me up
remind me softly to go
If I forget won’t you wake me up
Remind me not to feel a thing
Keep the dream tight
I can’t feel a thing

Ben Watt & Stiming ft. Julia Biel – Bright Star (Sunrise Mix)
