10 rules you need to know for B2B DJing

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Fri 21 Feb 2014 8:00 pm
Most DJs will, at some point, play back-to-back with another jock, whether it’s a spontaneous party moment or a pre-arranged joining of talents. B2B sets can be fun for a lot of reasons. They let you and your DJ peer share in the excitement of making a crowd move. You can also push each other into new musical realms you might not have ventured into on your own. It even allows you moments out of the mix, when you can actually step back and enjoy the party you’re helping to create. But not all B2B sets go as planned, and a bad one can suck all of the momentum out of a party in no time flat. Here’s some rules to follow the next time you find yourself passing the headphones back and forth.

10 more dance-music reunions we want to see

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Wed 12 Feb 2014 9:00 pm
When the Grammy-winning duo Deep Dish unceremoniously split in 2006, we assumed it was likely for good, as one half of the duo, Dubfire, dove deep into the minimal techno sound, while the other half, Sharam, went down the big-room house path. But with the announcement today of their collaborative return to the stage on March 29 at Miami’s Ice Palace, new hope has sprung for a whole host of other acts that we once thought were forever severed. With this exciting reunion on the horizon, we got to thinking about what other dance-music teams we’d like to see back on the block.

Five rules for a seamless DJ switchover

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Wed 29 Jan 2014 10:00 pm
During a panel at last year’s Amsterdam Dance Event, disco legend and Grammy-winning Daft Punk collaborator Nile Rodgers spoke about the magic of his first encounter with clubbing, and how the non-stop musical experience, from first entrance to final exit, made an indelible impression on him. That seamless stream of sound has been a hallmark of DJ culture that continues to today. From underground clubs to massive festivals, “the beat," to quote Rodgers, "don’t stop until the break of dawn.” As recent bickering between DJ superstars such as Seth Troxler and Nina Kraviz, or DJ Sneak and Joris Voorn proves, switching between DJ sets is a time when tensions run high and egos can be bruised. During the vinyl era of DJing, switching between performers was as simple as handing off the headphones. However, in the era of multiple DJ tools (Traktor, CDJs, controllers of all colors), moving effortlessly from one set to the next takes some tact.

More than Moroder: 10 dance-music legends you need to know about

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Fri 24 Jan 2014 1:00 pm
After four decades of existence, dance music has no shortage of unsung heroes and forgotten favorites for every new generation of fans to rediscover. Two of the genre’s earliest innovators, Giorgio Moroder and Nile Rodgers, were given huge boosts last year, thanks to their involvement with current kings Daft Punk. But those disco legends certainly aren’t the only past princes of dance music worth investigating. Here’s our list of 10 more names that are more than worth Googling.

Dance music’s top 10 TV moments

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Tue 21 Jan 2014 9:00 am
Dance music has often had a difficult relationship with television appearances (mostly because it’s music made by pushing buttons and clicking cursors, which doesn’t make for the most exciting onstage performance). In the real live setting, of course, performers have made up for this deficit by creating gigantic visual shows synched to the music, but these spectacles tend to lose a lot on the small screen. So when has dance music made its mark on the small screen? Here are 10 television performances throughout the decades that are definitely worth watching.

10 boutique electronic-music festivals you need to attend

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Fri 17 Jan 2014 10:00 pm
If there’s a single force driving the electronic-music explosion these days, it’s the power of festivals, with events from Electric Daisy Carnival to Ultra Music Festival drawing hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world, while even less mainstream events like Detroit's Movement and Montreal’s MUTEK draw capacity crowds more often than not these days. But bigger isn’t always better, and after a couple of year spent smashed up against 50,000 Deadmau5 fans, many heads start looking for something a bit more modest from their multi-day musical gatherings. Naturally, these events tend to lean towards the more underground side of electronic music, but what makes them special isn’t just niche beats but a level of intimacy you simply won’t find at larger events.

Here are a few things our scene needs (and a few it needs to dump) to become better than ever in 2014.

10 dance acts we’re stoked for at Coachella

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Thu 9 Jan 2014 7:00 pm
Coachella unveiled their always-anticipated line-up last night, and as usual, we’re excited by a great deal of the electronic talent on tap. 2014 sees an absence of many of the pop-chart DJs who dominate most festival line-ups these days, but that leaves plenty of room more esoteric and underground acts who we hope will stir things up for the raving masses that ram the Sahara Tent every year.

The five sexiest dance-music festivals

Of course, festivals are great places to binge on your favorite music for days on end. But, if you're so inclined, they can also be fantastic places for hooking up. That said, some multi-day events are better than others when it comes to coupling, so, with Playa Del Carmen's BPM Festival having just kicked off this weekend, we took a look at some of the world's more amorous dance-music parties.

New Order’s Peter Hook talks about three decades of the Hacienda’s nightclub legacy

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Fri 26 Oct 2012 8:00 am
From hosting legendary Einstürzende Neubauten gigs to inspiring Michael Winterbottom's modern classic, 24-Hour Party People, Manchester's legendary Hacienda sits next to clubs like New York's The Paradise Garage, Chicago's Music Box, and Berlin's Tresor in the pantheon of venues that defined an entire musical movement. Opened in 1982 as an offshoot of Factory Records, the venue was largely funded by label hit-makers New Order. By the late '80s, it was ground zero for the explosion of acid house that would define the first wave of the global rave movement. A new compilation, Hacienda 30, celebrates three decades since the club first opened its doors. The three-CD set focuses on the heady acid house days, with mixes up by resident DJs Graeme Park and Mike Pickering, as well as New Order bassist Peter Hook. Beatport spoke with the always gregarious Hook to try to understand why, 30 years later, the sound of the Hacienda and the scene that it inspired continues to capture the imagination of dance music fans young and old.

Delivered... Joshua Glazer | Scene | Mon 15 Oct 2012 11:00 am
For the past few years, Carl Craig's remix work has been ubiquitous on dancefloors. But lately it seems that having other folks remix C2's original catalog has become all the rage.

Now, the always-hip International Deejay Gigolos get in on the action with French producer Sebastien San having a go at another PCP fave, "Oscillator."
