At last week’s Spotify press conference – the one where Lars Ulrich revealed that Metallica’s full discography would be made available on the streaming service — Frank Ocean took the stage for a brief performance.
Tag: David Guetta (1-6 of 6)
The biggest debut of 2012 doesn’t belong to a glossy pop act like One Direction or Justin Bieber.
Sure, those boys have hordes of teenage girls ready to download their music at the drop of a tweet, but they’ve got nothing on the scruffy gents of Mumford & Sons, whose new disc, Babel sold 600,000 copies in its first seven days. (The next-best opening? Bieber’s Believe, with 374,000 in week 1.)
Babel‘s success (it has now led the chart for three weeks and sold 865,000 copies total) is indicative of a larger shift within the music industry. As pop music morphs into a glow-stick dance party, country acts have adopted the traditional pop sound. That leaves Mumford and the burgeoning Americana and folk genres (think acoustic guitars, banjos, and innumerable fitted tweed vests) to fill the country void. Did you get all that?

After a slew of EDM festivals this summer — Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival — New York City’s Electric Zoo served up the season’s last big dose of trance, house, and dubstep.
Featuring a bevy of the biggest names in electronic music performing for three days on New York City’s Randall’s Island, Electric Zoo was an orgiastic, exhausting, often monotonous, occasionally euphoric experience.
In today’s media universe, there are two ways to get big. The first is to put your heart into your craft, work tirelessly toward promoting that art, and associate yourself with like-minded individuals who will help push and challenge you as you move forward.
Or you can just talk to a magazine and say some terrible things about people more famous than you.
In a not-at-all-surprising turn of events, international superstar and electronic head piece enthusiast deadmau5 (real, less silly name: Joel Zimmerman) spent part of his interview in the new issue of Rolling Stone talking smack about Madonna and David Guetta.
Ubiquitous DJ-turned-dance music producer David Guetta is closing in on a banner 2011, thanks to his guest-happy, hit-filled solo album Nothing But the Beat.
The album’s third single “Without You,” which features syrupy, plaintive vocals care of Usher, is currently sitting at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100, and the track now has a flashy video that premiered earlier today.
The video opens with a little intercontinental flavor, driving home the fact that Guetta is beloved all over the world. While Guetta is laying down beats for hordes of people, Usher is all alone on a beach.
But wait! Before you weep for Usher and his loneliness, there’s a (literally earth-shattering) twist!
Check out the clip below, and feel free to do your little desk chair dance to keep your Friday afternoon funky. READ FULL STORY »
