Well everyone it is that time of the year, so its really thoughtful that Wick-it the Instigator is wishing you all A Very Wick-it Christmas… and it comes with a free download!! So happy holidays to everyone! Enjoy this mix, its really really good, and I love it! Wick-it the Instigator’s musical creativity truly knows no bounds, and I have nothing but respect for his talent.

I just realized I created a post about an event in Atlanta, and considering a lot of our readers came here for AZ, CA, and NV shows, I didn’t want you all to freak out and think someone like took over the site. Lets look at this as simply an expansion. I know a lot of you in particular liked the info we would give out about the Steve LeVine Entertainment and Public Relations events, because lets be honest they put on some of the most killer shows in AZ. SO I thought I should let you all know that yes, I have moved to Atlanta and we shall see if we can kick things off out here, but that does not mean we will not be updating you about events over there in the Southwest and on the West coast!! Have no fear we will still be here for you! Peace and love
Don’t know if many of you have had the pleasure to listen to SOHELLA, but I think it is about time that you all check at least this track out, because it will speak for itself in regards to SOHELLA’s massive talent. Just a quality house/dubby track that should get ya’ll excited not just because it is awesome but also because of the free download. So there is really nothing to hold you back from adding this to your music libraries. Peace and love
Feel free to check out more of SOHELLA on Soundcloud
Hmmm so I’m not sure if it’s the super clutch vocals on this one, or the actual song that I have fallen in love with on this one. I mean, who doesn’t love Dragonette? Martina Sorbara has always been a personal fave of mine when it comes to female singer songwriters, but this song is super upbeat and catchy and its almost impossible not to fall in love with The Chainsmokers simply upon the first listen. I love this song, as well as almost everything else I have listened to of theirs so far… So definitely be expecting to hear more of them from here. SOOO DAMN GOOD. Get your dance on folks. Peace and Love.
So who doesn’t love some Dirty South?? I mean I know I do, and I definitely love the face that I can get a full hour of Dirty South in their podcasts. May’s podcast is no exception to this. I love it, I dig it, and I think you will too! Check out their new episode of Phazing Radio and subscribe to their podcasts on iTunes here! Enjoy!!!
Seems like the Bingo Players were just here in March… must mean they like the AZ heat! They will be back this Saturday to warm things up by the pool after a night of Moguai. The duo specializes in electro and progressive house. Spending a few hours by the pool and listening to some EDM is always a quality way to spend a Saturday.
When: Saturday May, 19 11:00am – 4:00pm
Where: Clarion Hotel Scottsdale, Arizona
Price: $16.80 (fees included) Get Tickets Here
As if this month couldn’t get any crazier here in AZ, André Tegeler, more commonly known as Moguia will be in Phoenix this weekend. We covered him back when he dropped his album Mpire, and also saw him live at Beyond Wonderland. I can easily speak from experience when I say he is still one of the most underrated artists in the scene, as he was one of my favorite shows I’ve been to. If you like electronic and progressive house this is your show.
When: This Friday May, 18
Where: Wild Knight Scottsdale, Arizona

Who is Zonderling?! Well from what I could dig up in 15 minutes from the seemingly elussive artist is that he is from the Netherlands, works under the Klopfgeist Record, and I really like this track! Sonderling was shown to me by a friend named Austin, and I have no idea how he found it, but am grateful for the share. What’s most enjoyable about this track is that it is very mimilastic for a progressive house tune, but every sound is absolutely necessary to the overall composure. The video above definitely accommodates the potentially mysterious and dreaminess vibe the track can give off. Whoever you are Zonderling, we here at ESOM are watching and beg for more! You can buy the track on Beatport. Cheers
I hope ya’ll don’t think I’m just posting some Avicii because he is a big EDM name. No, that is not my style. I am a genuine fan of Avicii, as I am sure most of you are too, and here is a preview of a mix that no doubt will become a dance anthem and perhaps an anthem of your summer. This is actually pretty cool! Never woulda thought he would incorporate Lenny Kravitz into the mix. I like it! Yes, this is gonna be a popular one. Not because it is by a big name like Avicii. It is because it has a catchy beat, and like most of Avicii’s songs, it is extremely carefree, fun, and upbeat. It will keep ya dancing for days!
Okay so for those of you who haven’t heard the Dada Life – Rolling Stones T-Shirt (Original Mix) preview, I definitely recommend doing so. BUT, this Chuckie remix is pretty sweet. Granted it is just a preview, but it has me drooling and wanting the full completely finished version. Both versions are great so I shall post both! But keep an eye out for the full length Chuckie Remix! IT will be epic set to be released April 18th! Enjoy!

So I’m sure you all know of the songs “Hello” and “Boys & Girls.” Well Dragonette is the other half of those Martin Solveig collabs. They newest single “Let It Go” sparked some interest and Laidback Luke has brought us a kick ass remix of this track. Still keeping the integrity of the original, the remix puts his own twist on things and obviously just kills it. Sit back and enjoy!
The Norwegian duo, Carl Louis and Martin Danielle are now officially to be called CLMD. So don’t be confused! They are Simply shorting their DJ name to just their initials. This is such a neat song, and just a real treat. A sweet progressive hit with a quality drum line and hypnotic vocals. I am definitely a fan of this. Black Eyes And Blue. Enjoy!
First of all, I was listening to this in my car and then I started thinking about whether I had posted anything about this kick ass song. I haven’t, and honestly I don’t know what the hell is wrong with me. I’m a huge fan of Figure. His mixes are always on point. He kicks ass live. He just is a great DJ overall. He is the shit. This mix is also THE SHIT. I listen to it all the time which makes me wonder how on earth I forgot to post about it! I mean, I probably just wanted to keep all of the awesomeness to myself! HA! Kidding. Well, better late than never I guess! ENJOY!!!
I love original mixes because obviously its something new, something different that you haven’t heard yet. Its always a surprise. This was a pleasant little surprise to get this morning as I woke up. WHAT A SICK MIX! James Egbert coming in hot with his new Original Mix – Back to New. Huge electro house anthem for sure. Check it out! Enjoy!
Get it on Beatport
I see that DJs and producers are starting to crank out what are sure to be some of the dance anthems of the summer (maybe even the year)! How do you really pick a favorite though? I figured out how to deal with this dilemma… I just decided that I won’t pick one over the other. Be looking for a post in the next month that will contain an epic summer playlist that will constantly be updated as all of our favorite DJs continue to pump out new mixes.
This tune is definitely one that will make that cut too. Right now he is giving us a little taste, but Alesso always creates huge dance tracks and this is no exception. Its a feel good tune that will get ya up and dancing and feeling great. DOING IT BIG! Can’t wait for the complete full length release!! Check it out. Enjoy!
Well, this is just a pleasant surprise. What a cool little remix here by Madeon. I mean, I’m a fan of Martin Solveig, and I love the original, but shoot its hard not to love this remix!! So catchy! So upbeat! This remix is where it is at. I’m making this one of my summer anthems for sure, and I obviously recommend you do the same. Killer dance tune. Get up! Dance! Get happy! Enjoy!
R3hab is just always on point for me. His mixes are pretty much everything and anything I could ever ask for, and this one is no exception. Another great remix that comes in true R3hab fashion! Kick ass, bass lovin, huge synths, and a crazy beat that will keep ya goin all day and night. Well played R3hab. Well played! Enjoyyy!!
Hello to our avid fans and followers… SOOO I’m incredibly sorry for my lengthy absence! Sick doesn’t even begin to describe how terrible I felt this past week and a half, but I’m back and ready to bring you some KICK ASS TUNES! Starting off with this feel good electro/trancelike/house mix. Holy hell it just packs the punch there doesn’t it?? So many awesome dance genres in one? Plus you have Hujje crankin this mix out? Couldn’t really ask for more now could ya? Hope this killer mix makes up for me being gone! Enjoy!
Haven’t heard anything from Congorock in quite some time! They just released two new tracks titled Monolith and Agarta. Monolith is my favorite because like the name suggests, the thing is frakkin massive. The lead us in with an epic intro before capturing our attention with modified strings as the build continues to grow. Finally at 1:28 we are relieved of painful pressure and unleashed to rage to eastern synths and beats of the jungle! We aren’t left in safety after that point in the song, as there is another massive build and drop. Get the two tracks here on Beatport! Cheers
