NSFW: alesias new video clip for andrea shatters boundaries with some full on ghost porn (yeah we said it)
Alesia, the Parisian DJ/production duo known for their collaboration with DJ Snake, “Bird Machine,” have returned with a new music video for their track “Andrea.” This track is a hard-hitting French techno production that is combined with a video concerning a couple ghosts who are really enjoying their time together in the haunted mansion they’ve made their home. The mysterious video brilliantly suits the dark sounds of the track from Alesia, creating a great visual accompaniment to an even better production. Check out the video above!
2013 may be coming to a close, but the party is far from over. In celebration of an amazing year, and ushering in an equally incredible 2014, we invite you to our official holiday party at Pacha NYC on December 21, 2013. From 10pm-midnight there will be an open bar on Pacha’s 3rd floor; Pachita. Hopefully we’ve all made the good list this year so that DJ Santa can stop by to drop some beats. However, if we’ve landed on the naughty list (which is a distinct possibility), we’ll have to settle for Benny Benassi. Not mad, though.
RSVP to rsvp@Harris-pub.com! We hope to see you there! Happy Holidays to all, and to all a fun night!
It seems 2014 will see the expansion of one of the world’s biggest and most popular electronic music festivals, Tomorrowland. HLN.be has reported that Boom, Belgium, Tomorrowland’s home, has already issued the necessary permits for a second weekend. 2014 will be Tomorrowland’s tenth festival and it seems they will be hosting a special two weekend edition. The expansion also makes sense given Tomorrowland’s impressive popularity over the last couple years. The festival organizers have not denied these reports but say they are not completely true.

It’s no secret how Skrillex has taken over the EDM world. Now, he is getting ready to embark on a special tour, taking over San Francisco, CA and Brooklyn, NY here in the U.S., as well as Amsterdam and Barcelona. Skrillex is taking an interesting approach to this takeover tour, playing a variety of venues, both larger and more intimate, in each of the four areas, which are sure to make for some of the rarest, most nostalgic Skrillex shows to date.
Aside from seeing the superstar in these varying venues, the tour will also see support from a range of both established and up and coming names. The San Francisco leg of the tour sees opening acts A$AP Rocky, Seven Lions, Jack Beats, Alvin RIsk, Louisahhh!!!, Craze, UZ, David Heartbreak, Etnik, Samo Sound Boy, GTA, TOKiMONSTA, while Brooklyn will see appearances from Just Blaze, Lunice, Shift K3Y, AC Slater, Bro Safari, Clockwork, and TOKiMONSTA. The Brooklyn portion of the tour will also include a performance at an undisclosed warehouse on Valentine’s Day (what better way to spend the night with your loved one?).
Over seas, the Amsterdam leg will feature 4 club shows and a boat party, with friends like Jack Beats, Bro Safari, and UZ joining the action. The tour’s finale in Barcelona brings the epic journey to an end with 4 more shows joined by Benga, Alvin Risk, KOAN Sound, and more.

Recently Daniel Amezquita, known otherwise to us as Moska, reached 10,000 followers on twitter and in celebration of this social networking achievement the Colombian DJ/Producer has released his latest work “Stealth” for free on SoundCloud. Lets put it this way, you should go grab this track IMMEDIATELY! “Stealth” will easily become a club anthem in the cold months to come. Tribal drums drive this song from beginning to end, with a upbeat soothing synth melody as the breakdown that makes me envision a live audience losing themselves in the familiar yet foreign sound. I would like to say that this is Moska’s best work to date and we can expect a very bright future from this upcoming producer. Listen, download and enjoy here.
The two heaviest genres have came together for a massive mind warp that will literally blow the roof off a place. Dubstep maven Excision has come together with Space Laces for a dubstep/hardstyle fusion called “Destroid 11 Get Stupid” that will annihilate any set it touches. Starting off with a high frequency bass grind, the track leads up to a drop of epic hardstyle proportions. Grab the track on Beatport!

No sound? No problem! There were some technical difficulties during Zedd’s set at Stereosonic but that didn’t stop the talent from putting on a good show. Instead of keeping the crowd restless the young German resorts to his angelic singing voice. The festival goers join him in what turns into an epic singalong of the smash hit Clarity.
Always one to stay on top of the music with countless remixes, edits, mash-ups, and his own original mixes, the MixMash master Laidback Luke has hit us with his latest – a big room edit to Promise Land’s upcoming MixMash release called Sun Shine Down! Promise Land’s highly-anticipated original version of the mix called Heroes has a nice melodic build-up with an electro style drop, and the support from Alicia Madison’s soothing vocals has given the track a new name – “Sun Shine Down.” Laidback Luke really spices up the track with his edit, particularly in the drop, by adding dirty electro sounds that twist and turn the original, as well as giving an extra dose of percussion, tailoring Sun Shine Down even more so for nightclubs and beyond. Promise Land’s Sun Shine Down EP drops on MixMash on December 16!
