If you want to see a star in the making, please please please get on the Ariana Grande bandwagon, I know I am. Obviously, many have heard her on the radio within the past few weeks for her song with Mac Miller entitled “The Way”, which has peaked at Number 9 on the Billboard Top 100.
Last night she did her first late night performance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show along with Mac Miller with The Roots as her accompanying band, which should be considered a huge complement and accomplishment.
19-year-old Ariana got her start on the Nickelodeon channel doing the show Victorious and was so well-liked that she has a spin-off show Sam & Cat that is premiering soon. However, this is not just another Nickelodeon Pop experiment. This girl has the vocals to back it up and many have no problem saying her range reminds them of a Mariah Carey-type performer. Mac Miller definitely could have had his fingerprint on a lot of young artists with his current status in the music industry, so that fact that he chose her definitely speaks to her musical ability.
Her debut album Daydreamin’ is due out late August, and she is bound to blow up, so get on the bandwagon now before there’s no room left.
Paul van Dyk is a legend in the trance world, one of the leading DJ and producers to hit the scene and any producer is honored to work on a collaboration with him as Arnej is for this MASSIVE anthem for We Are One festival in Berlin Germany on July 6th. Check the preview of the tune below and check back on June 24th when the official release will be available!
Been in love with Fehrplay since first hearing him introduced to the Pryda and Friends label and the kid has been smashing the Beatport charts for quite some time now with monsterous productions of what true progressive is all about. Showing no signs of stopping, the latest remix ‘Give it to the People’ by The Child of Lov is deeper then his productions before but still giving it the progressive sound noted from the Norwegian up and coming star. Check it out below for yourself!
Here’s the leaked album cover!

Yesterday, Andrew McMahon released a music video for his song “Synesthesia”, which was the first track off of his EP The Pop Underground which was his first solo effort after successful runs with Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin.
However, still being defined as an Indie-Alternative artist, it is not very often that Andrew is able to make music videos with a lot of production value, yet he is able to achieve something great with this one.
The video itself is a very good accompaniment of the song itself, which is thoughtful yet very light-hearted. The style of the clothing is very summer-esque, and what is in style now, with the exposed midriffs and short shorts. It just seems to be friends having fun in the summer sun, embracing the point in life that they are in. Having a majority of the video being in soft focus also goes with the theme of synestesia (which means sensory and a multitude of senses).
There has been many mixed reviews about The Pop Underground as a whole, tending to use more synth and electro than Andrew has used in the past, but it still seems to be a nice departure from where he has been in recent months. For the diehard following that Andrew McMahon has, there is hopes that a full-length album will be in the future.
Jesus lord have mercy. That’s about all I can really say about the Evil ID from Max Graham who recently blew apart Pachita with an open to close set that not only left his incredible fans emotional but him as well. Max truly has an appreciation for every fan of his, and it’s apparent with his massive twitter followers and taking the time to interact with as many followers as he can. Out now on Beatport, you have to grab a copy for yourself to get a little evil anywhere you go!
