I just only recently started listening to DJ MAKJ, he opened up for Avicii when he was here in AZ in January. Needless to say he really impressed me then, and this little preview of this bootleg collab with Hardwell is sooo sick and it just reminds me why I started following him and his work. I mean and then you have to ask yourself, who doesn’t love Hardwell?? he kills everything. So it just makes sense that I would enjoy this track. Its a great progressive house tune that gets shit goin. Definitely gonna be a great song for your summer playlists. Can’t wait for the complete full track! Enjoy
Sunday January 15th, Avicii graced Tucson and Phoenix with amazing shows. Helping to spread the word about the hunger crisis in America, the House for Hunger tour definitely succeeded in bringing everyone out to rally behind the cause and listen to some amazing music. I first want to start out by saying that the supporting artists in Tucson were killer. Michael Abate, DJ MAKJ, and DJ EYE KILLED IT! You know how sometimes you get to a show later than when the gates open because you are worried the opening acts won’t be that good?? We’ve all done it, but yesterday was an exception to this rule. I was glad we got there early because I was able to enjoy some great up and coming artists and they really did Avicii justice.
Then Avicii came on the stage. The crowd was chanting his name and despite the fact that I have seen in multiple times before, this time was different because I was with so many people I knew and we were about to experience one of our favorite house artists live together. It was just a great atmosphere. The set was great! There were songs I had never heard him play during his live sets before which was epic. Then after an amazing hour and a half long set, he ended it with Skrillex’s remix of Levels. It was definitely and unexpected finish but it gave the crowd that one last Avicii fix they needed. Overall, the show was a great success. There is something inspiring and almost indescribable about knowing that by simply buying a ticket to go see someone as amazing as Avicii, you are in turn helping to fight hunger in your own country. The tour itself was such a great act of selflessness and generosity. So a special thanks to Avicii and Ash Alliance, and the whole At Night Management crew. Your work is an inspiration.
