ARTISTS

Dave Seaman
There aren’t many artists who’ve soundtracked the birth of dance music and are still leading its development more than two decades later. There are even less who have gifted both the club and pop scenes with unforgettable musical moments that get talked about in hushed tones years after their creation. Dave Seaman is one of a select few. Whether it’s one of his spine-tingling Global Underground or Renaissance CDs that’s still burning a hole in your stereo years after its purchase, or the perfect pop of Kylie’s ‘Confide In Me’ that he co-wrote, produced and remixed, there’s very few with their heart in electronic music who haven’t been touched by his oeuvre in one form or another. It’s a commonality that everyone from clubbers at Creamfields, to the biggest recording artists on the planet share. Having devoted almost every weekend over the last 20 years to moving dancefloors from Ibiza to Iceland, Seaman has played the world’s most recognised festivals and clubs in more than 80 countries throughout his career, while still lending his production nous to the music industry’s A List. Along with crafting beats for Ms Minogue and Pet Shop Boys, everyone from David Bowie to New Order and U2 to Michael Jackson have received a Seaman re-rub. Wind the clock back to when Seaman was eight years old and it’s difficult to imagine anyone wanting to devote their life to music quite as much as the Leeds-born lad. While others indulged in pipe dreams of becoming an English Premier League star or following Neil Armstrong into space, Seaman – much to his career councillor’s disapproval – knew he was destined for a life full of beats and rhythm. By the early ‘80s, the music obsessive was spinning records at his high school disco and earning his pocket money playing friends’ birthday parties. He knew how to talk-the-talk, too. In 1987 the still-amateur DJ and DMC member won a trip to New York to attend the New Music Seminar – the industry’s most important event at that time. The trip ultimately led him to land the editor’s role at Mixmag, a position he’d hold for the next three years as he shaped the magazine into being the undisputed clubber’s bible it is today. Seaman played his first bona-fide professional DJ gig at the legendary Shelley’s in Stoke in 1990, stroking vinyl alongside a couple of emerging talents by the name of Sasha and Laurent Garnier. Acid house was blooming and Seaman’s boundless enthusiasm and creative spirit was petrol in it’s tank. Teaming up with producer and friend Steve Anderson, the duo recorded as Brothers In Rhythm, birthing the seminal rave anthem ‘Such A Good Feeling’ which became a UK Top 20 hit, while also issuing the landmark ‘Mixmag Live Volume’ 1 with Carl Cox in 1991 – a release that stands as one of the first ever commercially available mix compilations. Seaman’s unrelenting desire to propel music at all levels saw him kickstart the Stress Records imprint through DMC, showcasing tunes by some of the finest talent in dance music for more than a decade. Artists including Sasha, Danny Tenaglia, John Digweed and Groove Armada’s Andy Cato all released smoking club cuts on the label, with many crediting it as acting as a global launching pad for their careers. He followed Stress with a decade at the helm of another lauded label, Audio Therapy where similar levels of success ensued proving his ability to spot & nurture talent time and time again. - djdaveseaman.com
Mark Knight
DJ, producer, label owner and businessman: Mark Knight has proven a rare and wonderful breed of musical heavyweight. The second highest-selling Beatport artist of all time (with no less than eight No.1’s) his career has spanned more than a decade, with releases on a diverse range of labels such as Suara, 1605, Stereo and of course his own Toolroom. Despite his success, the Grammy-nominated artist has never rested on the laurels of being one of the industry’s most respected and accomplished international players, and continues to push boundaries and set new standards with each year that passes. Armed with a musical library that knows no boundaries, a consistent run of hits and chart-topping ventures alike, the success of Knight’s recording career is matched only by the credibility and integrity maintained throughout his discography to date. Heard through a spread of anthems (‘Man With The Red Face,’ ‘Alright’, ‘Downpipe’) along with producing bands such as Faithless and Underworld has sealed a diverse musical heritage for the accomplished producer. It’s music for passion, not numbers, and it’s what Mark Knight does best.
R3hab
Fadil El Ghoul (born in 's-Hertogenbosch, 2 April 1986), better known by his stage name R3hab (pronounced "rehab"), is a Dutch DJ and record producer of Moroccan origin. Alongside Afrojack and Chuckie, R3hab is one of the proponents of the modern Dutch house subgenre, although his style and sound at the time were usually darker, somewhat reminiscent of early psytrance or gabber compositions. During the 2012 WMC in Miami, United States, R3hab won the IDMA Best Breakthrough Artist Award. R3hab began his career in late 2007 while producing the track "Mrkrstft" with Hardwell. One of the main influences R3hab has listed is the duo Infected Mushroom, whose music has been on the international scene since 1999. His most notable releases to date are "Pump The Party" produced together with Ferruccio Salvo, "The Bottle Song", released on Wall Recordings and "Prutataaa", which was R3hab’s first collaboration with Afrojack. R3hab was signed by internationally-known DJ and record producer, Afrojack, to his Wall Recordings imprint and is quoted as being one of its biggest talents.
Hardwell
Music maturity came swiftly for the now seasoned-veteran Robbert van de Corput, better known as Hardwell. At the age of 25, the young Dutch titan capped off a 10 year journey when he was crowned World’s #1 DJ in the 2013 DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll cementing his position as the electronic scenes newest superstar DJ and becoming the youngest ever winner of the coveted Top 100 DJs award. In 2014 the Dutch megastar did it again - being crowned World’s #1 DJ in the 2014 edition of DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs Poll for a second consecutive year. Despite relinquishing his crown in 2015, though still taking the highly respectable second-place spot, it’s clear that Hardwell has already created a legacy that would put most of his counterparts to shame. This award-winning DJ, producer, musician, label owner and lover of all things music has not only helped shape the current state of EDM, but has left an everlasting imprint on it. Like his great mentor Tiësto, Hardwell proudly hails from Breda, a city tucked deep within the Netherlands. Having first established his name at the tender age of 14, Hardwell has since elevated his clubland standing to impressive, dizzying heights. His serving of big room bangers over the past year has seen a bundle of anthems sweep charts and dancefloors worldwide. Label boss of Revealed Recordings and collecting a plethora of Beatport #1’s (no less than 7 consecutive #1’s in 2013 alone), his studio output has never been more prolific or more on point. Records such as his anthemic hit ‘Spaceman’, ‘Three Triangles (Losing My Religion)’, ‘Jumper’, ‘Dare You’, alongside the hard-hitting track, ‘Apollo’, the scorching collaboration with Dyro and Bright Lights, titled ‘Never Say Goodbye’, and his more recent remixes like Coldplay’s ‘Sky Full of Stars’ and Calvin Harris Feat. Ellie Goulding – ‘Outside’ have become some of the biggest records over the past couple of years. In 2014 he saw his accumulation of Beatport #1’s rise scoring hit releases with his remix of Deorro & J-Trick’s ‘Rambo’, Armin van Buuren’s ‘Ping Pong’, alongside placing with his own singles ‘Dare You’ featuring Matthow Koma (which broke into the UK Top 20 singles chart, debuting at #18), ‘Everybody is in the place’ and the first single titled ‘Arcadia’ (featuring Joey Dale & Luciana), from his forthcoming debut artist album, straight to the top of the Beatport chart. Now with all eyes on his new artist album, which will include tracks such as his latest single ‘Young Again’ with Chris Young on vocals, Hardwell is building up to the most exciting musical period in his career so far. Through his refreshing sound that is characterized by complex drum ensembles, daring synths, and emotive chords, Hardwell has created the ultimate recipe for “Big Room House”. His productions are received with such great praise and acclaim; it seems his shelf life is endless. As his reputation grows amongst the world’s partygoers, so does his status. First entering the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll at #24 in 2011, Hardwell rose to #6 in the 2012 edition of the poll, before being crowned World #1 DJ in the 2013 poll - seeing off fierce competition from the likes of Avicii and Armin van Buuren and following in the footsteps of electronic icons Tiësto and David Guetta. The imitating that success once again in the 2014 edition of the Top 100 DJs Poll when he held onto the #1 spot. The “fresh and open-minded” approach he has taken with his label Revealed Recordings has led to the imprint gaining international momentum and having produced a cluster of hits since its inception back in 2013, as well as giving rise to a new generation of artists that include Dyro, Dannic, Julian Calor, Manse, Thomas Newson and Kill The Buzz. Another success in the labels armoury is its celebrated compilation series ‘Hardwell Presents Revealed’ which offers listeners a true box ready taste into the current trends at the heart of the labels musical output. Moreover, his record label Revealed Recordings has also grown to become a dominant force as a globetrotting tour brand in its own right named ‘Hardwell presents Revealed’, having staged events in America, Canada, Greece, UK, Croatia, Switzerland, Austria and Netherlands, as well as fronted to North America Bus Tours to date. In 2014 Revealed stepped-up their event plans with the arrival of their own festival arena shows staging parties at the likes of Summerfestival and Creamfields in the UK. Then in 2015 the label locked in arena hosts at festival such as Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland Belgium and the debut Tomorrowland Brasil. Summer 2014 also saw Revealed undertake its first official residency holding down a regular run of shows at the iconic open-air daytime venue Ushuaïa Ibiza. Presenting a congregation of producers that admirably hold an array of top Beatport chart positions and rankings in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ’s in the world, Revealed’s handpicked bills for the Ibiza season at Ushuaïa Ibiza ignited the white isle in a truly memorable fashion. For summer 2015 Hardwell returns to Ibiza and Ushuaïa with a new event concept titled ‘Hardwell’s Carnival’, which will illuminate the island’s party calendar with stunning visuals, performers and some guest stars. In March of 2011, Hardwell launched his very own radio show and podcast, Hardwell On Air, which is broadcasted on more than 115 international radio stations, including Holland’s top dance station, Radio 538, Sirius XM in the US, and NRJ in France and Germany. Additionally, the podcast has a solid spot in the iTunes Top 10 Podcasts in more than 45 countries and according to 1001tracklists.com is the hottest show in the scene right now. As a producer his ratio of releases to hits is extraordinary. In 2011 his collaboration single with Tiësto - ‘Zero 76’ was one of the biggest club tracks of that year and to date the music video has received over 14 million views on YouTube. The single went #1 in the Beatport and #1 in the US iTunes chart. That same year his solo record ‘Cobra’ went to #1 in the dance charts in Holland and Top 10 on Beatport. 2012 saw even more success with his remixes of Rihanna’s track ‘Where Have You Been’ and The Wanted’s ‘Chasing the Sun’ both reaching #1 on Billboard’s Dance Chart. His collaboration remix with Dannic for UK pop star Example’s, ‘Say Nothing’, received a #1 spot in the Cool Cut Chart, while Tiësto and Hardwell’s remix for ‘Young Blood’, by the indie rock band The Naked And Famous, became the festival circuit’s summer anthem. Hardwell also collaborated alongside Showtek to produce the track ‘How We Do’, with the music video premiering on MTV US. However, Hardwell’s biggest track of 2012 was the solo original known as ‘Spaceman’, which is regarded by media critics and peers alike as one of the EDM scenes biggest timeless anthems. ‘Spaceman’ was released in over 25 countries worldwide, scored a #1 place in the Beatport chart and to date has clocked in more than 15 million views on YouTube. At the tail end of 2012 Hardwell released the hard-hitting organic track, ‘Apollo’, featuring Amba Shepherd. Much like its predecessor, ‘Apollo’ would propel Hardwell’s name into the spotlight and ignite a global phenomenon around his infectious releases and DJ sets. Such was the foray around his name at this time that dance music icon Pete Tong invited Hardwell to make his debut on the hallowed decks of BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix in November 2012, where Hardwell’s prowess was so distinctively displayed. Having featured for the first time on the mainstage of Ultra Music Festival only one-year prior (2012), Hardwell’s position as a mainstage stealing DJ was affirmed in 2013 when he returned to the renowned Miami event. Armed with a body of fresh and unheard music, most notably is landmark hit single ‘Never Say Goodbye’, his performance at the 2013 Miami Ultra Music Festival would go on to become the stuff of legend. Clocking up a staggering 6 million views in just 8 weeks, Hardwell’s set broke all records for the most watched Ultra live broadcast during UMF with over 80,000 people watching his set via the feed. During his set, Hardwell’s Twitter account was using 20% of Twitter’s overall bandwidth with his name was trending worldwide with such intensity that it caused Twitter to temporarily shut down his account – yes, he broke Twitter! 2014 saw Hardwell back at Ultra Music Festival but this time to close the entire festival proceedings. Showcasing a plethora of new music and delivering every inch the grand finale show the fans and organisers had hotly anticipated, Hardwell’s dominance as a mainstage titan was once again set in stone. A feat that is further backed by the 9.5 million views his liveset has, to-date, clocked up on his official YouTube channel. Hardwell returned to the Ultra Main stage at the event’s iconic cityscape Miami setting in 2015, adding even further impressive numbers to his viewer counts that already delve in their millions and make him the single most in demand liveset artist, in the electronic scene today. With over 170,000 fans tuning in to witness history be made as Hardwell teased exclusive new tracks, was joined by some familiar faces and commanded the stage as his own, Ultra 2015 has proven to be one of Hardwell’s most successful trips to the city yet. Impacted even further with the hosting of his own Hardwell Presents Revealed party, which descended upon Miami’s unparalleled Story nightclub. Following on from his 2012 Tomorrowland set, which to date has received over 21 millions views on YouTube and was dubbed by many as a contender for the best set of the year, Hardwell returned to the mainstage of Tomorrowland in 2013 where he played yet another inimitable set that took a frenzied Tomorrowland audience on a ride of a lifetime. This time the liveset amassed in excess of 1 million views in just a few days and has currently been viewed over 22 million times on YouTube; the inexorable rate at which his DJ sets are viewed by fans around the world has made him the single most in demand liveset artist in the electronic scene today. A true festival–straddling superstar his sets have conquered arena’s at the most prestigious and crowd-pleasing of parties in the world such as Ultra Music Festival Miami, Electronic Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Electric Zoo, Creamfields, UMF Europe, Coachella, EDC London, Future Music Festival, TomorrowWorld, Global Gathering, The Flying Dutch, Mysteryland, Dance Valley and various Sensation’s, including Amsterdam’s. At each and every show his fans litter the crowd awash in banners, flags and t-shirts’ bearing his name. A gesture Hardwell still finds touching, stating; “the commitment and effort the fans put into the shows with their signs and energy on the dancefloor is incredible. I’ll never be able to thank them enough.” As a DJ his global headliner status has led to endless sold-out shows around the world at venues from Ministry of Sound in London to Green Valley in Brazil. Debuting in Ibiza in 2010 when he was personally invited by Tiësto to perform with him at his now legendary Club Life event at Privilege. Hardwell’s 2013 Ibiza excursion saw him grow into one of the biggest headline acts on the island with roadblock shows at Ushuaia, Pacha, Space, Cream @ Amnesia, plus Cream’s Radio 1 live event @ Privilege, and led to him winning the ‘Electro House DJ’ award at the 2013 Ibiza DJ Awards at Pacha and then again at the 2014 Ibiza DJ Awards ceremony. 2015 saw him win the same award for the third year in a row, also adding the prestigious Best International DJ award. Added these to his growing awards cabinet which already contains the accolade for ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ from the 2012 Miami IDMA awards, a double of victories from the 2013 ceremony where he scooped ‘Best Remixer’ and ‘Best European DJ’, and his 2014 IDMA Awards for winning ‘Best Global DJ’ and ‘Best Progressive House/Electro DJ’. At the 30th annual International Dance Music Awards (IDMAs) in 2015, Hardwell became the most nominated artist in the year’s categories taking away an impressive 5 coveted awards. These included ‘Best Electro/Progressive House Track’ with ‘Arcadia’, Best Album with ‘United We Are’, ‘Best Global DJ’, ‘Best Progressive House/Electro DJ’ and ‘Best Podcast or Radio Mixshow’ for his ‘Hardwell On Air’ broadcasts, bringing Hardwell’s IDMA count now up to a total of 10 awards. Hardwell also found himself nominated in the 2014 MTV European Music Awards, competing in the category for the ‘Best Dutch Act’, ‘Best World Stage Performance’ and ‘Best Electronic Act’ – which is an indicator to the level to which Hardwell and his very club-focused sound has grown during these past few years. These accolades reiterate the wide-scale belief from his fans in his music and DJ sets. North America, one of Hardwell’s biggest territories, has seen him deliver some impressive shows, on top of sell-out nationwide tours. For instances in 2013 he embarked on a Revealed Presents Canadian Bus Tour, where Hardwell, joined by support DJs Dyro and Dannic, took in the country’s finest clubs from New City Gas in Montreal to The Guvernment in Toronto and left a colossal marker of musical intent. His exclusive residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas with his ‘Go Hardwell Or Go Home’ event series has cemented his position as one of the forerunning DJ stars in the US club scene, generating much acclaim from the worlds media and clubbers alike. This was also followed with a nationwide ‘Go Hardwell Or Go Home’ tour that took in venues across America. In April 2013 Hardwell launched his most ambitious project to date when he unveiled his I Am Hardwell world tour concept at Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall to a 6000 capacity crowd. A spectacle of unprecedented musical vision and production detail, the entire show was broadcast live on a HD feed to 100,000’s of fans around the world and placed a solid marker to the immense popularity of Hardwell’s position within the dance community. After a hugely successful launch event, Hardwell took his exciting and innovative tour concept on the road for a worldwide tour. Spanning 6 continents the tour saw sold-out shows in Jakarta, Singapore, Bangalore, Mumbai, Lisbon, London, Mexico City, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Tel Aviv, Guatemala City, Manchester, Edinburgh, Belfast, Istanbul, Sao Paulo, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, making I Am Hardwell one of the must see shows over its 19 month period. For the final phase of the I Am Hardwell tour, Hardwell took to the streets of New York for a Times Square takeover where he revealed that the closing chapter of this epic world adventure would culminate in North America. The final leg of the global tour took in shows in Chicago, Toronto, San Francisco, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Miami before completing its mammoth journey at the world renowned Madison Square Garden in New York, in front of an 18,000 capacity crowd, for what was a spectacle finale for Hardwell’s international scaling party concept. In October 2013, during Amsterdam Dance Event, Hardwell held the world premiere of his ‘I Am Hardwell’ documentary in Amsterdam’s oldest and most famous cinema, Tuschinski. The documentary provides a captivating inside-look on Hardwell’s rise. With the motto - "If you can dream it, you can do it”. 2015 saw the release of the sequel film ‘I AM Hardwell – Living The Dream’, again premiered during Amsterdam Dance Event and following Hardwell on his world tour, asking the question "The problem with dreams is what happens once they've come true?". Hardwell unveiled the sequel to his 2013 documentary with a new film in 2015 titled ‘I Am Hardwell – Living The Dream’. Even more than the previous documentary ‘I AM Hardwell – Living the dream’ lets you experience the music. Starting with the 27-year-old Robbert van de Corput, working on new musical ideas in his studio, followed by the mass hysteria in Delhi and unprecedented footage of the ‘I AM Hardwell’ concert shows where ten thousands of people worldwide shared in the music, passion and energy of what a Hardwell show is all about. It’s a gateway into the life of a musical pioneer on the road to accessing the peak of his artistic powers. But it’s his relationship with his fans that sets him apart from his peers. Through his popular Q&A series on YouTube Hardwell’s personal side is displayed, where he answers the most begging of questions his fans have to offer. As said by Hardwell himself, “With the opportunities of social media today, it's super easy to be in direct contact with your fans, however it's impossible to respond to each and everyone through Twitter or Facebook. That's why I came up with this idea, to give my fans the opportunity to ask me their questions and to have the chance to answer them in a fun and engaging way!” And talking of social media his meteoric rise up into the higher echelons of the dance community has seen his fan base swell in recent months. With over 7.4 million ‘likes’ on Facebook, more than 1.95 million followers on Twitter and in excess of 200 million hits on his YouTube channel, Hardwell has rapidly solidified his place as one of the electronic scenes most ‘clicked on’ artists. Will his dial fully set to musical creation, Hardwell’s 2014 was filled with large amounts of studio as he poured numerous man-hours into his debut artist album – United We Are – alongside continuing to circumnavigate the globe appearing at all the major festivals, alongside countless arena and exclusive club shows. Hardwell opened 2015 with the news that his collaboration with W&W and Fatman Scoop, which is a big-room attack that captures the live intensity of Hardwell’s arena-spanning shows, had claimed the Beatport #1. 'Sally’ was the next single to be taken from United We Are and featured UK singer/songwriter Harrison. The single shot to #2 on the Dutch iTunes Singles Chart, whilst United We Are also reached the #2 spot on iTunes Worldwide Album Chart, narrowly missing on the #1 position due to the surprise release of Icelandic superstar Björk’s artist album Vulnicura. Released January 23rd 2015 the album features a host of collaborations that include Jason Derulo, Fatman Scoop, W&W, Bright Lights, Harrison, Jonathan Mendelsohn, Amba Shepherd, Joey Dale, Luciana, Headhunterz, Chris Jones, Haris, Mr Probz, Funkerman feat. I-fan and DallasK, as well as a track together with Tiësto and singer-songwriter Andreas Moe. The album’s release coincided with a launch event that took in two sold out nights at Amsterdam’s impressive Ziggo Dome, where Hardwell also unveiled his new tour concept I Am Hardwell – United We Are. 2015 also saw Hardwell team up with fellow dance music pioneer Armin van Buuren for the club-charged track ‘Off The Hook’, which had countless dance floor bubbling with excitement during the weeks of its release. And the year saw Revealed Recordings hit its 200th release when label boss Hardwell unveiled his hot new record ‘Mad World’ featuring Jake Reese. One project of keynote in 2015 was Hardwell’s step into the world of charity work. Utilising his global appeal for social change, Hardwell, along with international electronic music agency, Anna Agency and United Welfare Trust, launched the United We Are Foundation. Created as a way to ‘give something back’ to the children of the world, the United We Are Foundation is a charity project that has global ambitions to educate young children in different communities around the world. First launching in India with an historic show that will attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the ‘World's Biggest Guest List’ by opening his own personal guest list up to 100,000 fans for free. The foundation will then travel to different countries around the globe undertaking in an international development agenda that will aim to deliver a ‘magic bus’ educational programme to children in India. The rise of Hardwell as a young boy from the city of Breda into a ripened international super-heavyweight has become an inspiring tale for many. Coming full circle from a dream to reality of wanting to become the ‘#1 DJ in the World’, we can be assured that the global artist Hardwell is a musical force that will drive electronic dance music for many years to come...
Paul Van Dyk
From early Berlin techno and house through progressive trance, producer/DJ Paul van Dyk has soundtracked the German electronic dance scene ever since he moved to the city and began mixing in 1988. A native of a German town near Frankfurt, van Dyk first heard house music on the radio during the mid-'80s. Soon he was experimenting with a rudimentary turntable setup, and after hitting Berlin, he gigged around the city. By 1991, he had appeared at the legendary Tresor club; he later set up his own E-Werk club, and debuted on record as Visions of Shiva, with fellow trance wizard Cosmic Baby. He remixed for New Order, Humate, Sven Väth, and others, then signed to the German MFS Records for his first album, 1994's 45 RPM. By the midpoint of the '90s, van Dyk had become a globe-trotting DJ and remixer. His second album, Seven Ways, resulted in British and German dance chart entries for the singles "Beautiful Place," "Forbidden Fruit," and "Words." While both of his albums were issued in America during 1998, van Dyk added a remix collection (Perspective) and mix album (Vorsprung Dyk Technik) to his discography. 2000 saw the release of the single "Tell Me Why (The Riddle)," the album Out There and Back, and the EP We Are Alive. As a follow-up to global club dates in support of those releases, van Dyk released another EP, Columbia, in mid-2001. After a relatively quiet 2002 (on the recording front), van Dyk returned with a mix-album/greatest-hits/DVD (Global), the soundtrack to a film (Zurdo), and a new production album (Reflections). He released the second volume of his Politics of Dancing mix album series in 2005 and returned with another studio album, In Between, in 2007. The remix effort Hands on in Between followed a year later, and live DJ gigs, remix work for others, and his own mix albums kept Van Dyk from releasing a studio effort for the next four years. He returned in 2012 with album Evolution, along with the single "Eternity" featuring Owl City frontman Adam Young. A year later he issued the (R)evolution: The Remixes collection, while 2015 saw his long-running mix series becoming a trilogy with the release of The Politics of Dancing, Vol. 3.
Robin Schulz
Black sunglasses, a baseball cap flipped backwards and a laptop: His visual trademarks simultaneously serve as his most important tools. Those and his keen sense for super-hits that generate 9-digit streams which have so far enabled him to move crowds across the globe for the past one and a half years. The young man from Lower Saxony is actually more the reserved type, who would much rather stand behind his decks and let his music do the talking. Robin Schulz: A picture perfect career. Making his way from a local secret to the nation’s ‘next big thing’ and finally to an internationally acclaimed mega star. At age 28, the producer and DJ has already established himself as the most successful German club act to date and is now set to lay forth his sophomore album.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s path from celebrated DJs to dominating the electronic music scene has been a constant, upward trajectory. From becoming the first ever duo to win the World #1 DJ’s crown at the prestigious DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll in 2015, the twosome continued to stand strong and remain relevant amongst the ever-changing landscape of modern dance music, as for 2016 they remain in the Top 2 for the 3rd year in a row. Whether wreaking havoc across Europe, Asia, Australia, North or South America, ripping up the music charts with immense studio releases, cutting huge remixes for the A-list elite or playing their part in the incredible rise of the Belgian mega-festival Tomorrowland, the award-winning brotherly duo have now become the leading lights in the new wave of not only international dance music currently taking the planet by storm. Picking up heavy support from top industry figures like Apple’s Beats 1’s host Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Danny Howard, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have fast become one of the go-to acts for major recording artists from remixing Lady Gaga, over to scoring edits for everyone from Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul, Ne-Yo and plenty more.
David Guetta
With 2009’s multi-platinum One Love, two-time-Grammy-winning artist/producer/DJ David Guetta cemented his status as a genre-busting hitmaker whose in-your-face fusion of electro and hip-hop beautifully warps the pop landscape. Now, with his fifth studio album Nothing But The Beat, Guetta builds on that breakthrough momentum and takes his decades-spanning career to a frenetic new level marked by bigger hooks and more brain-bending beats. A star- packed powerhouse showcasing today’s hottest hip-hop and R&B artists, Nothing But The Beat backs up its high-gloss pop with ingenious electronic stylings that deftly flaunt Guetta’s DJ pedigree. In a nod to the driving force behind Guetta’s crossover success, the double album (due out August 29) also offers an all-instrumental disc designed to turn new listeners on to the hypnotic sound of house music. One of the most wildly anticipated albums of the year, Nothing But The Beat comes hot on the heels of the rush release of its first smash single, “Where Them Girls At” (featuring Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj). Already his fasting selling single to reach gold status in the USA, the dizzying and deadly catchy “Where Them Girls At” marks a one-time return to the straight-up club-anthem sensibility of Guetta’s “Sexy Bitch” (the 2009 monster hit that moved 5 million units worldwide). “When I listen to the radio in the U.S., every song sounds like ‘Sexy Bitch,’” says Guetta. “The urban dance thing has become huge. Now I have to push it because my sound has become so popular. It’s a challenge, but I like that.”

Apple Under Attack
A group of hackers claim that they have gotten access to 300 million people's iCloud passwords, and now they're threatening to wipe ALL of those people's iPhones on April 7th unless Apple agrees to pay them $100,000 in iTunes gift cards.  That seems like a strange form of payment to demand, but either way you should probably back up your phone and change your password ASAP, just in case. In email communications, a message allegedly from a member of Apple's security team tells the hackers that they "do not reward cyber criminals for breaking the law." Apple has not responded to multiple request for comments.
Kit Harington Talks Game of Thrones
Kit Harington (John Snow) has admitted he really doesn’t know how Game of Thrones will end – but that he actually finds that "really exciting." "Everyone's been wondering how it's going to end, and what's going to happen right from the get-go, and theorising about it," he said. "It's really exciting to me not knowing, genuinely having no idea where it's going to end, what they've got in their heads, and being the first to find out."   He also said he was getting attached to his character John Snow, and feeling quite emotional about him, especially since the last season is coming up.   Although he doesn't know what's going to happen yet, he will do as soon as he gets the script. "I just finished season seven, and I am already counting down the days until I get the season eight scripts," he admitted. Last month, Grey Worm actor Jacob Anderson said that season 7 is going to be "absolute chaos," are you ready for it to start yet? We are!
Robocop Dubai 2030
Real-life RoboCops will be patrolling the streets in Dubai alongside normal police, starting in May of this year! The Director of the Future Shaping Centre (FSC) of Dubai Police said "By 2030, we are keen to make robots around 25 per cent of the total police force." The robots will be multi-lingual and crime fighting robots will have facial recognition technology, allowing them to scan faces from up to 20 metres away. The bots will also have a touchscreen on their chests and in-built microphones, with which members of the public can report crimes, pay fines, and contact emergency services.  The FSC Director also commented that "by 2025, Dubai will be one of the best five cities in the world on security level."

Apple to Launch 3 New iPads!
Apple will reportedly launch 3 new iPad models in the Spring of 2017. It looks like 2017 is gearing up to be the year of the iPad! Apple is hoping to stop (or at least slow down) the year-over-year decline of iPad sales by introducing several models, each of them aimed at specific consumer types. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro would appear to cater to designers, illustrators, and creative types who use tablets as a canvas. The 10 or 10.5-inch model (if it boasts a Smart Keyboard) could attract people looking to replace their MacBook with something a little more portable. Finally, the 9.7-inch model may have the right price tag for those looking to get a new iPad on a somewhat tighter budget.
Scream 3 is Back!
The third season (for those of you confused, we're talking about the TV series, not the movie series) of Scream is announced and its fans are pretty excited and/or terrified about it. In an unexpected turn of events, however, it looks like the MTV bosses could be taking the show in a completely different direction, with plans for a reboot rather than picking up where season two left off. Instead of following the current set of characters, they're considering a complete overhaul, including a brand new storyline. The series will be releasing just six episodes for the latest run, despite previous seasons airing between 10 and 13 episodes. We'll let you know when we hear more!
