Live Sets From Ultra Music Festival - Weekend 1

Wanna hear all the DJ’s who have played at Glow recently? Here you go!

It’s pretty much common sense that Club Glow brings the best talent in the world to DC. Week in, week out, world-class DJ’s come to grace to CDJ’s at both Josephine and Echostage. Now, it’s one thing to claim these two things, but it’s another to really look at the facts that back them up. A question arises though, how can a DJ be classified as world-class? Beatport downloads? Facebook likes? Twitter followers? Rankings on DJ Mag? There are many ways that can be used to place that label onto a DJ. In my ever so humble opinion, there is one factor that outweighs all of these: relevancy. The act of staying in the minds, ears, and iPods of dance music listeners around the world. It’s no easy task, it is one that only a few can truly do. This past weekend, thousands of people around the world attended a music festival that serves as a way to see who is most relevant in the EDM world, that festival being Ultra. Ultra only invites the best of the best to play at it’s festival. As a person involved with Glow, I took it upon myself to find out how many of the DJ’s playing at Ultra have played here in DC. Since the opening of Echostage on September 22nd of last year, 44 DJ’s have played at Glow. 20 of those DJs played at Ultra this past weekend, and many of the others have been playing shows in Miami Music Week. This shows that not only are the DJ’s that Glow bring relevant, but also that they are world-class. In recognition of those DJ’s that have played here in the nation’s capitol, here are their live sets from Weekend 1 of Ultra Music Festival. Many more of the best DJ’s from around the world are coming soon to DC, so stay updated at the Club Glow website to see who we have coming out.

Krewella - Killin’ It
Just like that GLOW April lineup!!


So it’s been a little while since I’ve posted on the blog, and what better opportunity to make a re-entrance than this snow day mother nature has granted us.  Up and coming dub house act Krewella has created a style all their own, with tracks with more of a progressive house vibe like ‘Alive,’ and more dub-based sounds like in ‘Killin’ It.’ Irregardless, Krewella’s distinct stylistic approach can be heard in every track they release. Seeing them for the first time at Electro Beach Puerto Vallarta in a week will truly be a legendary experience. And the best part of it all: like Krewella, GLOW’s April lineup is KILLIN’ IT!

Madeon - Pop Culture
Not bad for a kid who produced this before he could set foot in a club, eh?


This week I’ve decided to focus all my postings on a topic that doesn’t receive nearly enough attention in the electronic community: mashups. I’ll talk a little bit more about them and why they’re so important as the week progresses, but for now, we’ll start you all off with compilation of 40+ tracks squeezed into a 3.5 minute time block. Are they all ‘pure EDM’ tracks? No - and EDM is a term I’ve been trying to erase from my vocabulary but that’s a topic for another time. But is this a true work of art? You bet your ass it is. So expand your horizons a bit and realize that there are other genres of music outside of electronica, and enjoy this masterpiece that this young French phenomenon has left us.

Imogen Heap - Hide and Seek (Otto Knows Remix)
One of the most revolutionary progressive house remixes to come through in awhile

Contrary to popular belief, popstar Jason Derulo was not the first to coin the chorus to this soulful ballad by Imogen Heap. Swedish progressive house guru Otto Knows truly knows how to pull at the heartstrings of his audience. This classic pop hit is remastered to fit the anthemic, big-room sound that Otto Knows is most recognized for. With a slew of hot tour dates on his agenda, this producer is capable of filling up any space with the euphoric melodies that he plays best.

Passion Pit - Carried Away (Tiësto Remix)
The Dutchman returns with a remastered dance floor anthem!

Tiësto has been a busy man in the studio of late as he gears up for Miami Music Week 2013. This remix is just another painstaking example of his ability to transform any track into a dance floor hit as he meshes crisp synths with consistent, driving bass line and sprinkles it with uplifting, spirited vocals. For those of us who remember his legendary two-night performance at Echostage a month ago, we are well aware of his poise on-stage and recognize his rightful position as one of the best DJs/producers of all time.
