Every once in a while, DJs get caught in moments of apparent vulnerability. One such moment occurred recently when Laidback Luke, Sander Van Doorn, and Steve Aoki all simultaneously took to the decks at a Mixmash party in Miami for a little threesome fun in the booth. Naturally, things were pretty, uh, laid-back up there (it being a daytime outdoor party and all), but one YouTube user took the opportunity to take some lighthearted jabs at the trio, and uploaded some video of them entitled “What DJs Actually Do,” with captions that drew attention to their seeming lack of activity when it came to keeping their hands busy with playing music.
After much speculation, it’s been revealed that the monumental pairing of Sander Van Doorn and Firebeatz are the folks behind the anonymously posted electro-house tune “Guitar Track”—and what a track it is.
The DJ Mag 100 poll is always a bit of a contentious talking point amongst industry members and fans—but it sure looked a lot different 12 years ago. Come on in to see who won back in 2001, and to see why a naked pic of Seth Troxler is relevant to today’s news.

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.
We love the idea that one might incite a riot with two turntables and a microphone—but we don’t love it so much when the cops think so. Read on to see what happened to Porter Robinson over the weekend.
