TomorrowWorld is just one lone month away before its triumphant return to Chattahoochee Hills on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia. Taking place over the weekend of September 26th-28th, the second annual US-based festival has released a new trailer along with the theme of “The Arising of Life.”
Like most globe-trotting DJs of his stature, David Guetta, 46, is spending the summer months in idyllic Ibiza. Why not? He can. Seasonally based in the splendid Spanish White Isle, the Frenchman currently hosts two weekly residences at Ushuaia (on Mondays) and Pacha (on Thursdays) respectively. Over the weekend, he jet-sets across Europe gigging wherever the tailwind takes him. And, as if his relentless touring schedule weren’t enough, he’s also carved out a sliver of time to collaborate with Swedish chart-topper Avicii on his new single “Lovers on the Sun” featuring singer Sam Martin. Interestingly enough, Guetta says he drew personal inspiration from some classic Morricone Spaghetti Western scores like 1964′s A Fistful of Dollars and 1966′s The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Both were directed by Italian director Sergio Leone and starred Clint Eastwood. We immediately perked up and wanted to know more about it.
As a guiding barometer of the general public’s musical taste, Shazam is a good measuring stick and usually spot on. This recent list of standout tracks from Tomorrowland 2014 is no exception, giving us a crystal clear picture of what moved the masses in Boom, Belgium during the massive double-weekend event. As you’d imagine, Dutch dance juggernaut Spinnin’ is well represented here with a clutch of current tracks from leading roster artists like Martin Garrix, Dmitri Vegas & Like Mike, Ummet Ozcan, Watermat, and Deorro, among others. But there are some honorable mentions here as well from the likes of European festival heavyweights David Guetta, Steve Angello, and Netsky.

Seeking a friendly electro-house soundtrack for the end of the world? David Guetta has got you covered. Hot on the heels of joining forces at Ultra Music Festival, Guetta, Dutch production duo Showtek, and Australian vocalist Vassey have just delivered a new comic-inspired lyric video for their Beatport #1 hit “Bad.” The track is currently listed at #3 on the Beatport Top 100.
While David Guetta is without a doubt one of modern dance music’s biggest stars, it’s not terribly well known that the guy was a serious house head back in the day, starting some of Paris’ first house nights, playing host to Daft Punk’s earliest sets, and mixing up techno, hip-hop, funk, and disco long before most of dance music’s current crop of fans were even born. So, fittingly, when he was in Chicago last week for a gig at the city’s Aragon Ballroom, he let loose with a big dedication to Frankie Knuckles, who died earlier last week, during his set.
