Let’s bring it back for throwback Thursday to an old Radikal Records gem: Ubap by Re-Flex that will have you Ubap-ing all day night and all night!
Re-Flex is a British new-wave/synth pop band which met international success in 1984 with the release of their track The Politics of Dancing which made it to the top of the Dance charts in the US and in Europe!
The DJs From Mars are a pair of Italian DJ pranksters who have over 20 million Youtube views and have worked on mash-up remixes for many artists including Pitbull, Cascada and Sophie Ellis Bextor. Not bad for two guys who started making remixes just for fun! They also wear boxes on their heads.

Going to be in Brooklyn November 9th & 10th? Let’s hope so! The 5th Annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, or BEMF, has just been announced! The festival will take place across the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bowl, Public Assembly, Grasslands, Cameo, and The Villain Loft, and will be an exciting mixture of up-and-coming EDM superstars to well-respected veterans of the industry.
Now, the creators of the BEMF want everyone to know that this isn’t just another EDM festival. The thing that sets apart BEMF from other festivals is not only the focus on non-mainstream artists, but the fact that the event features countless other Brooklyn businesses and gives attention to other mediums of artistic expression.
Katie Longmyer, one of the events coordinators, explains, “BEMF prides itself on its representation of the elusive but coveted sonic creators that are pushing the boundaries of what new music is and defining what seeps into the mainstream. Brooklyn is emerging as a center point of the international dance music community and we are excited to highlight the unique Brooklyn style and showcase how it is becoming a home of creativity in our favorite community of artists.”
Make sure to check out the incredible lineup here and stop by for the classic genre-bending experience of BEMF.
EDM Legends David Guetta and Armin van Buuren have just been announced as the headliners for the much-anticipated Creamfields electronic music festival in Abu Dhabi. The December 7th show will be held at the du Arena on Yas Island, and are on sale for those 18 and older here. Act fast though, prices are rising quickly!
Didn’t see that one coming, did you? Taking two genres that almost never cross one-another, it has finally happened: dubstep and heavy metal have met in a happy medium.
Ultragore Recordings CEO Sluggo has taken time out of his schedule in the middle of his “No Hostages” tour to give us all a glimpse into what he thinks will satisfy the eardrums of both metal and EDM lovers alike. The list includes everyone from Godsmack and Asking Alexandria to Eric Clapton, and is sure to give people who may be set in their musical ways a different outlook on the rare combining of these two unique genres. Check out the list here, and tell us what you think? Did Sluggo do the metalheads justice, or is the list a complete flop?
Hip-hop legends Cypress Hill and their collaboration partner, dubstep superstar Rusko, have released a new remix of Hill’s track, “Shots Go Off.”
