New Artist Spotlight: Midnight Smack


For today’s new artist spotlight we would like to introduce to you Nick Siamas. The Pleasanton born and Los Angeles based DJ/Producer is known for his futuristic trip hop sound that has caught the attention of many. Before he was even born Siamas parents knew they had a musical prodigy on their hands, not from his mother’s womb, but by smashing his way out of their stereo speakers. It was at that moment, holding an 8-track cassette deck and a midi keyboard that he faced his musical destiny head on. Now composing under the name, “Midnight Smack,” Siamas is experimenting with new styles and genres like Bill Nye the Trip Hop Guy. Having built a big reputation in the San Luis Obispo area and Los Angeles area as a premier talent, Midnight Smack will definitely not disappoint with his projects and performances.

Here’s our personal favorite tune by Siamas:

Be sure to keep up with this talent as he is working on new projects soon to be released. Experimenting with different sounds and genres are sure to bring the best out of Midnight Smack.







Martin Solveig & Laidback Luke “Blow” (Preview)


In 2012 Martin Solveig and Laidback Luke met up in Sydney, Australia to start on a collaboration during the famous Stereosonic music festival and then met up once again during the Ultra Music Festival to work on the project that was left incomplete (Supposedly done during Ultra but felt that the Ultra crowd was not the right place for its debut). Then finally when the Tomorrowland Festival came about, and when Martin and Luke saw the reaction of the crowd when they both opened with the track, they finally felt that it was the right time to introduce it to the masses. The festival tune titled “Blow” consists of a French Electro sound mashed with Dutchy synths and drum patterns. While there is no word on its release (on Mixmash Records), you can be sure that you will be hearing it at your next edm festival. Here’s a preview!



Fedde Le Grand & Michael Calfan “Lion (Feel The Love)”


An innovator in the dance music scene, Fedde Le Grand has helped shape the electronic dance movement with hits like “Metrum” and classics like “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit.” Having great success with remixes and collaborations, today we bring you a new release and collaboration with French man Michael Calfan titled “Lion (Feel The Love).” An electro track made for the club is a hard hitting dance tune that still maintains a melodic feel (something influenced by Calfan). For now we only have an instrumental with a vocal version coming out soon. Definite banger for any DJ sets. This tune is now released on Fedde’s Flamingo Recordings label and available for purchase on Beatport.
