October 26, 2013 – Aragon Ballroom, Chicago

Dada Life To Embark On Guinness World Records Attempt For The Biggest Pillow Fight In History!

Chicago – (current) home of the Stanley Cup, Air Jordan’s, Da Bears and a mean sausage – is about to go down in history as Dada Life sets the battleground for their attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the world’s biggest pillow fight!

Dada Life are already well known for their wild antics, having brought a 30 piece marching band with them to Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and setting a record of sorts going through 8,000 lbs of bananas on their Dada Land tour last year. But it’s time to up the ante! So, on October 26 fans in attendance at the Dada Land Compound show will be armed with Dada Life’s weapon of choice, a pillow. When Dada Life gives the cue it’s on…come out swinging…but remember it’s all about Happy Violence.

All of this is in celebration of Dada Life’s latest single Born To Rage that comes out exclusively on Beatport, Oct. 28.

Tickets for Dada Life’s show at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS attempt for the largest pillow fight known to man are available now.

You can also catch Dada Life at these shows:

  • Oct 24 – Philadelphia, PA – Xfinity Live
  • Oct 25 – San Diego, CA – Sports Arena
  • Oct 27 – Las Vegas, NV – Hakkasan

Paul Oakenfold Announces Trance Mission North American Fall Tour

The original pioneer and icon of the global trance scene takes his
“Full On Fluoro” sound to North America for the first time.

Paul Oakenfold Announces Trance Mission North American Fall Tour

Three time Grammy nominated DJ and producer Paul Oakenfold returns to his roots as the original pioneer and icon of the global trance scene with a new tour and album concept that launches in the US and Canada this October.

“Trance Mission” will bring a fresh visual and audio experience to the hottest dance floors of the world as Paul takes his popular “Full on Fluoro” sound, which has gathered incredible popularity in Europe recently, on the road in the US for the first time. In addition to the tour Paul will release a ”Trance Mission” album featuring brand new versions of ten of Paul’s favorite trance releases of all time.

Paul Oakenfold’s diversity as a producer and DJ have earned him mass acclaim from all sides of the dance music scene but despite his successes producing / remixing the likes of Madonna, U2, Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, many fans will always associate him with the trance movement in which he has played an integral role for well over two decades.

In the 1990’s Paul’s Perfecto and Perfecto Fluoro record labels were responsible for some of the biggest selling trance releases of all time, including classics like Planet Perfecto’s “Bullet in The Gun”, PPK “ResuRection”, Man with No Name’s “Teleport” and Paul’s own colossal hits Grace “Not Over Yet” and “Southern Sun” – the latter of which has appeared on over 150 compilation albums to date.

Of his 36 Essential mixes for BBC Radio 1, his legendary “GOA Mix”, which perfectly fused underground trance with poignant samples taken from film and radio, was voted the best Essential Mix of all time by Radio 1 listeners. It also received a Silver Award in the Specialist Music Programme category at the 1997 Sony Music Awards.

Paul’s 2011 “Fluorescence” Essential Mix was seen by many as the next chapter to the Goa Mix – with the online archiving of the show attracting over 500,000 listeners in the 3 months after its initial broadcast.

His residencies for Amnesia and Pacha (Ibiza), Ministry of Sound and Home (London) and Planet Perfecto at Rain (Las Vegas) are all well documented as milestones in the evolution of the electronic scene, but it was his residency for Cream in Liverpool that not only set his path towards becoming the one of the biggest headliners in the world but also cemented his status as head of the trance fraternity.

Over ten million album sales later (from two artist albums and over thirty DJ mix compilations) Paul Oakenfold opens a new chapter in the history of trance with his brand new “Trance Mission” tour and album concept.

Trance Mission is now activated….

Roger Shah Urges Fans To Join In Global Collaboration Song

Roger Shah Urges Fans To Join In Global Collaboration Song

In a world where it’s hard to differentiate oneself within the global DJ scene, ROGER SHAH has done just that. His performances never fail to amaze as he merges the art of DJ-ing together with live arrangement. With one hand he plays his wireless keyboard and with the other he mixes a selection of roof-raising releases. His natural ability to blend mesmerizing melodies, pulsating basslines and groove filled percussion into dancefloor anthems sees him tour the world like a true rockstar. Ultimately he is humbled by the support of his fans who have voted him in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll for five consecutive years and gave him a double EMPO nomination for ‘Best Trance & Progressive DJ‘ and ‘Best Radio Show‘.

Roger Shah“it’s an amazing feeling and a driving force for me to know that there are so many fans out there supporting me as an artist, voting for me for the DJ mag poll but also writing to me how important some of my music became for them in their lives, helping them to go through hard periods and more. It’s very touching and this is why I’m doing what I’m doing.”

As a special gesture to his fans, Roger Shah invites everyone to participate on his new upcoming song called “Mueve Tu Mundo” (Change your world). The lyrics invite to sing along with Roger on the chorus. Fans can record their vocal part of the original chorus and send as mp3/wav/aiff files or videos. All of these vocals will be combined to create a huge choir with voices from all over the world. It doesn’t matter if one sings perfectly or not, as long as minimal effort is shown.

Roger Shah Urges Fans To Join In Global Collaboration Song

On the production side Roger keeps very busy. His vocal masterpiece that he made in collaboration with JES and Brian Laruso was released on the legendary Magik Muzik label and remixed by Egyptian trance kings Aly & Fila, Dutch producer Jesse VoornPedro Del Mar & DoubleV, and Roger Shah himself under his alias Sunlounger. The official music video features a sunny boat ride journey highlighting the beauty of Miami’s shores.

The Roger Shah and Aly & Fila collaboration ‘Perfect Love’ hit the Top 10 of the ASOT Tune Of The Year poll, while Roger’s cooler Sunlounger guise has released ‘Finca’ with rolling melodies, uplifting pads and hooky piano creating an altogether cooler progressive-house anthem in the making and massive support by the likes of Armin Van Buuren or Above & Beyond to name a few.

Only a few weeks ago Roger rocked the Ultra Music Festival in South Korea. Ultra which has its home base in Miami is taking its festival world wide with other dates including South America and Europe. Ultra Korea was organized at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium Complex. Other artists on the line up included Tommy Trash, Krewella, Fedde Le Grand, Afrojack, Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, Avicii, Kaskade and Pedro Del Mar.

Forthcoming gigs include Future Sound Of Egypt 300 in both Amsterdam and Mexico City, The Mellomania Summer Cruise in Germany and the Summerdream Festival in Switzerland. Moreover Roger Shah will make his debut for Insomniac Events, the promoter known for the massive Electric Daisy Carnival festivals.

Roger has been working for a long time on the new SUNLOUNGER album which is due for release August 19th on Magic Island Records in cooperation with Black Hole Recordings. With the Sunlounger project he had chart entries on almost every continent. Pre-order the album here: http://bit.ly/17ZC7eF

The first single release taken from the album will be “Sunlounger Feat. Alexandra Badoi – I’ll Be Fine.” Watch the teaser: youtube.com/watch?v=xhTTmdLUCjE

Roger Shah“I haven’t done too many shows this year because I wanted to have the time to deliver another outstanding Sunlounger album to keep my real Balearic fans happy. I hope that the trance family will appreciate my effort and show me some love and support me another year in this annual and important poll. It’s still like a dream for me that I was able to establish myself in this tough industry and to have a spot in the DJ Mag Top 100 for 5 consecutive years with a peak at #21.”
