It has been said by many that 2012 was the year that EDM truly took over and went mainstream, and Forbes annual “30 Under 30″ list certainly drove that point home. Grammy nominees and winners Skrillex, Calvin Harris, and Avicii have all managed to make the list this year, which is considered a collection of “young disruptors, innovators, and entrepreneurs…impatient to change the world.” The EDM heavyweights newest honors put them in the same ranking as the likes of pop superstars Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Bruno Mars, and Ke$ha, along with R&B/rap/hip-hop moguls Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, and Frank Ocean. Only time will tell where these talented artists will go, but we have no doubt that they will all be in the spotlight and changing the world for a long time to come. You can check out the full list of musicians along with other top lists here.
The wait is finally over! It has just been announced that the headliners for the European Ultra Music Festival 2013 will be Swedish heartthrob Avicii, trance legend Armin van Buuren, and EDM superstar Carl Cox! The legendary festival has seen countless superstars on its bills the past couple of years, even managing to bag Madonna, the queen of pop, as an announcer last year. As expected, early bird tickets sold out in less than ten minutes just last week, but not to worry: general admission tickets on sale NOW for the first two days, with the third and final day’s tickets going on sale in early 2013.
Have you heard of Al Walser? No? If you have it’s probably because he’s been all over the music blogs since he was nominated for a Grammy. In fact we posted about him last week. Here is a little overview and update so far.
His song, “I Can’t Live Without You” was nominated for “Best Dance Music Recording” alongside artists like Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, Avicii and Calvin Harris. The world of music blogs is in a sort of shock and awe over this extremely random nomination.
Yahoo music refers to the song as “an effort that’s not quite Rebecca Black-level terrible, but pretty close in terms of, well, not exactly making the professional grade.” House.net stated, “Certainly, it is difficult to believe that Al Walser’s single was legitimately nominated for the award in question, particularly when one actually listens to it.”
It’s hard not to feel embarrassed for Al Walser because this song is so bad! So bad in fact, we have to share it with you, again!
Here is the additional information. Strangely enough, there is also a video on YouTube of Deadmau5’s Joel Zimmerman reacting to Al Walser’s nomination that was posted under the user name “Al Walser.” It’s hard to tell if Zimmerman is angry, sarcastic or actually doesn’t care at all. Check it out for yourself.
As they say, any publicity is good publicity, what do you think?
When this year’s “Best Dance Record” Grammy nominees were announced, nothing seemed too out of place at first. The contenders were all big-name stars such as Avicii, Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia, and Calvin Harris. All of them have countless fans, millions of YouTube hits, and hundreds of sold-out tours. So when the completely unknown (and, in our humble opinion, not good,) DJ Al Walser suddenly popped up on the ballot, more than a few eyebrows were raised.
The track in question, titled, “I Can’t Live Without You,” is a corny dance catastrophe that at the time of nomination, only had 20 views on YouTube, while Al Walser had less than 1,500 FaceBook fans. So just how does something like this happen? Nobody seems to know! It seems that no matter how impossible it may sound, Walser has actually managed to fix the Grammys. We’ll be bringing you additional details as soon as more information is released, until then, check out “I Can’t Live Without You,” if you dare.
