Release: Showtek & Bassjackers – Hey! + Music Video

Bassjackers & ShowtekShowtek and & Bassjackers have released the final banger of 2012. “Hey!” certainly goes off with a bang to end a huge year for 2012.  The song almost epitomizes the dance music explosion and the new loud sound that has been rocking clubs the last year and a half.  This sound is loud, louder and even louder in all aspects.

Free Download: Andy’s iLL – The Big Beautiful Nothing + Halloween Massacre Aftermovie

Andy;s iLLAndy’s iLL may be one of London, Ontario’s best kept secrets in the dance world.  Signed by Dim Mak records Andy has been nurturing quite a musical career with a strong back bone of support.  His latest track “The Big Beautiful Nothing” is nothing short of a dubstep masterpiece.  It’s a bit of a step away from his harder electro sound we’ve become accustomed too, but boy does it have that same level of emotion and punch.  We also had the chance to take in his headlining act at the Halloween Massacre at the London Music Hall.  The dude is full of energy and it resonates in his sets.

“Something I’ve kept for myself for the past year. I was nervous to release it because I didn’t want stupid comments about it but I really need the world to hear this.” – Andy’s iLL
