To promote their new 2015 ATS Coupe, Cadillac has recruited legendary scratch-master A-Trak for their campaign.

The Slum Village classic “Fall In Love” has entered the electronic world, thanks to a unique reworking from Moody Good.

Quickie with a DJ: Doc Hollywood + exclusive premiere of “Palm Springs Beach House (Nu Disco Remix)”
Favorite place on earth?
Louie: Right now it’s probably Palm Springs. They’re playing our new track “Palm Springs Beach House” on the radio there. It’s pretty surreal. Can’t wait to head there for Coachella this week.
Lex: My favorite place right now is definitely the shower. I wouldn’t be surprised if Steve Jobs created the iPhone in the shower.
Best performance you’ve ever seen live?
Lex: This is going to sound odd, but I was visiting my wife’s grandmother at the old folks home on improv night. These two elderly ladies took the stage and I think they accidentally started performing a rendition of 2 girls 1 cup. Everybody gave them a standing ovation, but the person who also deserves a round of applause is the janitor. In less than two hours the janitor had that same area sterilized and ready for arts and crafts.
Louie: Hahahah… I’m not going to be able to top that answer. Maybe if Daft Punk and the Tupac hologram teamed up.
Lex: I gave that up when I found out Derek Jeter has had sex with them all. At least he sends them away with an autograph and a gift basket.
Louie: I have to agree.
Favorite item of clothing?
Lex: My old house arrest bracelet. I laced it with rhinestones just yesterday. I wish it was more comfortable. I’m also all about my black american apparel t-shirt’s. I’m a coffee drinker who still hasn’t learned how to drink out of coffee cups, so if I didn’t have those black t-shirts it would look like somebody took a shit on my shirt.
Louie: I’ve got a pair of custom Nike’s that President Clinton commended when I was with my girlfriend. I’m also liking what Wil Fry is doing in fashion.
Favorite headphones and piece of DJ equipment?
Lex: The Studio Beats by Dre are real dope. I also like the Numark controllers. They’re real convenient to pack up and take on the road.
Louie: Lately I’ve been layering a lot of live Fender guitar, bass, piano and drums on our tracks, I think it gives us an added advantage over other producers who only use synths and samples.
Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
Lex: Looking back on these last 5 years it has truly been amazing. Hopefully we could say the same 5 years from today.
Louie: On our fourth appearance on the cover of Elektro eating sushi with a Polar Bear.
Song you’re ashamed to like?
Lex: I can’t think of anything I’m ashamed of liking. I remember people being surprised I liked Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” so much. We even DJ’d the shit out of the Afrojack remix in the clubs.
Louie: I’m not ashamed that I wake up to the Price is Right theme song every morning, it sets the tone.
Are you a fan of the CHL Ice Hockey Club the Halifax Moseheads?
Well… we are now!
Combine crazy project mapping visuals with Steve Angello and Third Party’s ‘Lights” and the Mooseheads arguablly just got the most badass pregame video of all time.
We are all for 3D projection technlogoy and can’t wait to see it pop up more at festivals and concerts.
In case you missed it, Big Gigantic had some awesome project mapping at Red Rocks last year – thanks to Ghost Pixel Visuals

This new name in the Pop/EDM world has already made face as both a well-known dancer and model, but is on the road to becoming a topliner in the dance scene. Working with Tearce Kizzo (who’s resume includes work alongside Afrojack, Jason Derulo, Pitbull) on the new track, KORR-A has also made a more friendly version of the song called “Touch Me Like You Mean It” ready for constant radio ready spinning. Having already performed at some of the hottest clubs around the country, KORR-A is set to make a few appearances in March in both Miami and Los Angeles.
Recently, some City of Miami officials have called for an end to Ultra Music Festival at its current home of Bayfront Park in downtown Miami. In light of the injury of 28-year-old security guard Ericka Mack this year, the issue has found powerful ground: Ultra may no longer be welcome in Miami. Ultra is calling upon its family of festival-goers for support by partnering with Change.org for a petition.
Ultra and the City of Miami worked together this year to deploy 257 police officers per day, 49 more per day than in 2013. In response to the injuries sustained by Ericka Mack due to a stampede of fans, Ultra Music Festival is conducting a top-to-bottom review of its security protocol.
Since its inception in 1999, Ultra Music Festival has garnered millions of attendees from throughout the world to Ultra’s home in Miami, promoting the City of Miami as one of the world’s leading epicenters for electronic music and global live entertainment. In 2013, Ultra Music Festival’s economic impact resulted in an infusion of $223 million into the local economy.
