During these last two decades, electronic music has been gaining steady ground in popularity. After a first surge during the last twenty years of the previous century, the USA slowly warmed up to all the different electronic sounds that were coming from Europe. Ultimately resulting in a thriving domestic movement of producers and DJs who are pushing their own unique sounds within the genre. Coming to the point where kids now prefer to be a DJ rather than to play guitar in a band. This increase in popularity also created a broader market for synth manufacturers.

But fiber-optic lovin' is not without its drawbacks. “Girl With a Cold Heart” and its eerily comical music video tell the story of a Tinder experience gone wrong, way wrong. “Making this song rescued me from a downward spiral of emotional pain, and I wasn't sure these feelings were escapable at the time. Sometimes you have to put your negative th

A few months ago when Mark was playing at a big event, he wanted to play 'Sugar'. He had just bought the complete remix-pack but lacked the time to listen to each remix before the gig. After quickly browsing through the material, he couldn't pick a favorite, so t
