Sorry I’ve been a little MIA recently, but with a full-time job on my hands (which I am definitely NOT complaining about), it is a little more difficult to continuously post! Let’s see…not much to say except some of these more mainstream artists’ songs have been remixed and are now house mixes, some feature mainstream guest hip-hop artists, and the rest … well they just about represent the hybrid of hip-hop, r&b, and electronica.

For those house, progressive, electronic, and trance music lovers anxiously awaiting one of the biggest national music festivals, the week of the Electric Daisy Carnival is upon us! Friday June 25 and Saturday June 26 the Colliseum in downtown Los Angeles will be exploding with 5 stages, carnival rides, food, people dressed up in what I like to call “Halloween-like” costumes (yeah – you know why), and most importantly – some of the most prominent and talented DJs in the world. Last year’s EDC was definitely an experience to be had (I still can’t get over people’s outfits – or should I say costumes). Luckily for my group of friends, we had purchased VIP tickets and didn’t have to be crushed in a sea of crazies. I had such an amazing time last year and still have my souvenir “MUSIC IS MY DRUG” t-shirt! I can’t wait until Friday!
Some of the top headliners:
Deadmau5, Swedish House Mafia, Kaskade, Chuckie, Dirty South, Afrojack, DJ Sets: Moby, Basement Jaxx, BT (Live)
Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Benny Benassi, Will.I.Am, Laidback Luke, Afrojack, Bart B More, Dada Life, Sasha, Fedde Le Grand, Roger Sanchez, James Zabiela, Chuckie, Avicii, Boys Noize, DJ Set: Groove Armada

Saturday night, I had the great (& very exciting) honor to hear AN21 & Steve Angello spin at Avalon in Hollywood. What an amazing experience it was to be in the presence of two very talented brother DJs. 🙂 AN21 spun till about 1am, where he turned over the floor to his big brother Steve Angello. As I was only there till 3 am, the music was unbelievable…& the nite was filled with lots of dancing OF COURSE. There’s something to be said about DJs that are truly passionate and dedicated to their work. Their love of music is easily translated to the audience & that connection between the musician and their adoring fans is genuine and untouchable. This happened last nite. The post for today will feature my favorite songs/remixes from Saturday night, as well as a couple others I felt like throwing in. If you have a chance to see Steve Angello & AN21 live, I would more than recommend doing so! All I have to say is that I’m waiting to see Swedish House Mafia do a show in LA! (If you want to see some of the videos I took on Saturday nite, go to my Youtube Channel DJDLish22.
