I’m finally back in Vancouver after spending the holidays in Palm Springs, LA and Las Vegas. Apologies for the sporadic posts while on vacay but I’m back in full force now.

It’s only fitting just days after leaving the Coachella Valley that the annual festival announces its lineup for the 2015 Coachella Music Festival. Once again, the event will feature the same lineups taking the stage on two weekends- April 10-12 and April 17-19.

Headlining Friday and Saturday nights are AC/DC and Jack White respectively, with Drake holding down the fort on Sunday nights. The acts that have me tempted to head to Indio, California this year are Duke Dumont, Kiesza, Florence + The Machine, Martin Solveig, Lykke Li, FKA Twigs and Azalea Banks. Check out all the music acts participating below.

The last time David Guetta and Nicki Minaj teamed up together, the club smash “Turn Me On” was born. It was one of my favorite cuts off Nothing but the Beat along with “Titanium” and “Without You.”

The dynamic duo of Guetta and Minaj are back together and this time enlisted Afrojack and Ester Dean on production and Bebe Rexha for the hook on “Hey Mama.” The track is off Guetta’s forthcoming Listen LP being released on November 24.

Hey Mama” is another EDM song destined to be a hit for them. With that being said, it’s vastly different from their previous collaboration. Bonus points for steering away from “Turn Me On 2.0.” It’s not easy to catch lightning in a bottle twice using the same formula. Wisely, it’s more pop oriented with Minaj flaunting her Caribbean roots on the island-tinged gem.

Nicki’s rhymes are also a change of pace with her exploring her domestic side and not being her usual aggressive self. She’s all about her man and catering to his needs. Is the femcee longing to be a Stepford wife? Give “Hey Mama” a listen below and check out Minaj’s new side.

David Guetta has enlisted a high octane team to kick off his new era. “Dangerous” which features vocals from Sam Martin receives an equally epic visual. The Following’s James Purefoy plays the French DJ’s Formula 1 racing rival in the soap opera-themed opus. Prolific director Jonas Akerlund delivers another cinematic-quality blockbuster.

If “Dangerous” is just a hint of what’s to come off his forthcoming LP, Guetta should have another platinum-selling album on his hands. Other high-profile collaborations to expect come from Emile Sande, The Script, Nico & Vinz, Skylar Grey, John Legend and Ryan Tedder to name a few. David also reunites with his “Titanium” partner Sia on two new tracks- “Bang My Head” and “The Whisperer.” Until those tracks leak, watch the “Dangerous” clip below to tide you over til then.

Calvin Harris Still The Highest Paid DJ In The World

Perhaps Rita Ora should’ve thought twice before allegedly cheating on Calvin Harris. Not only does he create sick beats but dude is rolling in the dough.

The Scottish DJ is once again the highest paid DJ in the world, topping Forbes annual Top 10 list. His twelve month earnings have risen from $46 million last year to a whopping $66 million. Not too shabby for a man who used to bag groceries in Scotland just a few years ago.

“The rise of dance music has been astronomical in the last three years. I happened to be in the right place at the right time.” – Calvin Harris

The publication included earnings from live shows, merchandise sales and endorsements, as well as recorded music sales and external business ventures as part of its tabulating process.

David Guetta equaled his $30 million in earnings from last year, but moved up to runner-up slot on the list. Zedd enters the Top 10 for the first time, catapulting all the way to the No. 7 slot. Not making the cut this time around are Armin Van Buuren, DJ Pauly D and Diplo. Check out this year’s Top 10 below.

Who knew spinning tracks could be so lucrative? Just a few years ago Calvin Harris was bagging groceries in Scotland and now he’s the world’s highest paid DJ, earning $46 million in the past year. Not to mention getting to hang with the likes of Rihanna, Florence Welch and Ellie Goulding to name a few.

Harris leads an impressive list of musicians collecting six-figure nightly checks for performing at nightspots from Las Vegas to Ibiza and for other business ventures once reserved only for rock, rap and pop royalty. His string of eight Top 10 UK hits from his 18 Months LP probably didn’t hurt either. Harris takes over the top slot from Tiesto who ruled Forbes list last year. Check out the rest of the Top 12 below which includes a Jersey Shore alum.

DJ Earworm Mashes Up Summer 2013′s Biggest Hits

In: Donovan, Music

What’s your song of the summer so far? Is it Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky?” How about “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke? Perhaps it’s Pitbull and Christina Aguilera’s catchy dance anthem “Feel This Moment?” DJ Earworm definitely considers them as viable contenders for the 2013 summer crown. The musical genius has once again worked his magic and delivered another wicked mashup. Praise the dance gods he doesn’t just do a year-end one.

Along with the aforementioned tracks, DJ Earworm includes hit tracks from Demi Lovato, Rihanna, Icona Pop, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Zedd, will.i.am and Justin Bieber to name a few. Props to my buddy Trevor Guthrie for getting a nod for his collaboration with Armin van Buuren in the mashup.

As much as I love DJ Earworm’s latest masterpiece, I feel he unfairly snubbed Selena Gomez’s “Come & Get It,” Mariah Carey’s “#Beautiful,” Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors,” and Miley Cyrus’ oddly addicting “We Can’t Stop.” I’ve definitely have all those songs on heavy rotation. Check out Earworm’s new mash below.

It’s a long weekend up here in Canada so as we remember those who have served to protect our country, let’s fill our cup and toast to them. And what better way to celebrate than with Ludacris, Usher and David Guetta. Luda is preparing to release his new album, Ludaverse with this track serving as it’s official lead-off.

Titled, Rest of My Life, this trio have brought the party with Guetta’s signature dance floor antics with smooth melodies courtesy of Usher and some wicked verses from Luda himself. The song talks about making the most of your life which Ludacris makes very clear is alcohol, weed and money. I’m glad his priorities are in check.

The video showcases Ludacris and Usher performing infront of a backdrop of smoke on a highway while Guetta’s clip see him dancing on a platform in a room by himself with some club lighting. All this is intercut with clips of glaciers, crashing waves, a random basketballer and some people falling in love. While I’m sure the premise of the clip is to “live your life,” the video is a bit random. Thankfully, after a few drinks, the video doesn’t even matter and the song just makes you dance. Check it out below.

It seems like the trend in music for 2012 is to re-release your album with new tracks to try and boost your album sales. Katy Perry did it, Nicki Minaj did it (and is about to do it again) as well as David Guetta who released Nothing But The Beat, 2.0 this summer. The new disc featured tracks from both his collaboration and electronic sides of the first version with a few added tracks. One of them is this little ditty featuring Akon and Ne-Yo which samples some classic Better Off Alone from Alice Deejay.

Right from the get-go, the iconic synth pattern kicks in with Ne-Yo singing, “said a hustlers work is never through. We making it cause we make it move. The only thing we know how to do. Work hard, play hard.” Then, Akon hits the track with his signature island, party boy vocals while the Guetta bass drums pulses the song forward. Give the track a listen below and tell us if you’ll add it to your gym playlist.
