Being a bouncer definitely ain’t for everybody—it requires a lot more intelligence and skill than maybe what meets the eye. It also takes patience, restraint, and—believe it or not—empathy. Check out this firsthand account from one of these storied guardians of your good vibes.
Best known for their remix of M-3ox “Beating of My Heart,” Russian duo Matisse & Sadko return with a feel-good summer anthem “Stars,” and it’s today’s Track of the Day. Spinnin Records released the Russian brothers’ original production via sub-label Doorn, which is overseen by Sander Van Doorn.

TomorrowWorld—the US offshoot of Europe’s massive Tomorrowland festival—will touch down in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia (just outside of Atlanta) this September, and after teasing bits of its lineup for months, the festival has at last unveiled the complete list of 300 performers set to take to the stage for the three-day event.
Dutch brothers Victor and Stephan Leicher, better known as producing duo DubVision, are quickly establishing themselves as major players in the progressive-house scene. Their first single, “All By Myself,” and their remix of Discopolis’ “Committed to Sparkle Motion” became mainstays in festival and clubs sets. Avicii opened his set at Ultra Music Festival this year with DubVision’s remix of his hit with Nicky Romero, “I Could Be The One.” DubVision’s latest original track “Redux,” released March 8 on Spinnin Records, was a hit at UMF as well, and is sure to be in heavy rotation at festivals this summer.

He may not have been the first Dutch artist to turn from trance to universal club fuel, but a little trial and error has served Sander Van Doorn considerably well over the years. Now purveying the soundtrack to high-profile festivals and videogames alike, Van Doorn also recently signed his emotive anthem “Nothing Inside” to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, steering clear of any major commercial hallmarks while further proving his plot in electronic music is worth following.
He teased fans at EDC Las Vegas last year with “Joyenergizer,” and now the perky peak-timer looks sure to set Van Doorn into positive motion for 2013. Beatport News caught up with the Dutch heavyweight to get the lowdown on his new single, his young protégé and collaborator Julian Jordan, and why genre boundaries mean nothing to the Doorn Records flag-bearer.
