Artist Discovery: EsQuille

August 25th, 2014

Straight from the city of house artist legends – Stockholm, Sweden – we bring you the newest from EsQuille. Just released on the 15th, the house DJ and producer’s freshest single “My Skin on Your Skin” features vocalist and actress Jane Badler, and is sure to receive the same positive recognition his previous singles gained after their drop. With a continuously growing fanbase, the new track has already gained a massive amount of buzz, so rocketing to the top of the charts is looking like no problem for the talented producer.

“Besides being a top notch production, the song has caught attention by its sexy breathing,” a recent press release described the melodic house track.

EsQuille’s first two tracks, “Heyo” and “I Take You Higher”, both reached high spots on dance and electronic music charts around the globe and were even licensed by MTV. Last September, the EDM producer released his first EP titled ‘Rock This Club Down’ which also received raving reviews and over one million views on YouTube for the single “Rock This Club Down”. Once 2014 came, EsQuille joined forces with Nordik Tempo, a record label run by John Wallin, a legend with a long history of phenomenal work in the electronic music world. “My Skin on Your Skin” is EsQuille’s first track release on the Swedish label, but look forward to more coming in the near future.

If you take to the liking of stong female vocals, catchy house beats and smooth drops, you are sure to fall head over heels for the newest single from EsQuille “My Skin on Your Skin”. Also suggested for fans of Roger Sanchez, Oliver Heldens and Clean Bandit.

Exclusive Interview – Catching Up With The Chainsmokers

August 21st, 2014

The electronic duo, The Chainsmokers, made up with the talent of Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, have risen to the top of the charts in the electronic music industry. The two have success on their minds and are succeeding on their path to achievement, especially with the drop of their hit single “#SELFIE” and now with their latest “Kanye“. “#SELFIE” made its move all the way to the #1 spot on the Billboard Dance charts back in March, and “Kanye“ is expected to do the same. When dropping bass thumping tunes or remixing some of the hottest tracks in pop and electronic music genres, The Chainsmokers are spending their time touring along the East and West Coasts, with shows ranging across the States. We just caught the duo in Pittsburgh last week and had a chance to catch up with the hilarious, non-stop runnin’ dudes.

Erupting from New York City, the quick-witted DJs signed with record label 4AM in 2012. The dynamic duo has performed with big names around the world including Avicii, Steve Aoki, DJ AM, Calvin Harris and Pete Tong.

The Chainsmokers have been spending the past few months getting their music out to the public and strengthening their fan base by playing at a number of festivals and events around the country. Let me tell you, this sure did work. Their “#SELFIE” track has become a phenomenon around the world, and everyone knows the lyrics.

But it wasn’t always life in the fast lane for these two artists. Pall and Taggart first got their start in music at young ages, and have used Deadmau5, Cut Copy and Digitalism as influences to step foot in electronic music. Some other musical influences they mentioned were TJR, Kaskade and Pete Tong, though when it comes to listening to music in their spare time, the duo threw in some ASTR, Drake and Red Hot Chili Peppers into the mix.

When asked if they could collaborate with anyone in the industry, who would it be, The Chainsmokers responded, “DJ Snake, that dude has the golden touch right now.” I see a future collaboration in the works, am I right?

How did the guys come up with the name of their electro-duo group? “In Japanese, it means ‘guys who smoke after the next guy’, and since we don’t smoke, it made absolutely no sense – we thought it would be sick,” The Chainsmokers joked.

When on tour, there is always bound to be a handful of memories and stories to bring back with you. For The Chainsmokers, their most memorable touring experience is probably one they don’t want to remember. “Throwing up on the flight from Dallas back to NYC for six hours. I will never forget how much that sucked,” they explained. Now if their plane were to crash and they were to be stuck on an island, the three things they stated they would want to bring along with them are, “Kate Upton, Megan Fox and Olivia Wilde.”

The sky is honestly the limit with these guys, and there’s no slowing down anytime soon. For more news on upcoming releases and tour dates from The Chainsmokers, visit their website. Here’s to a never ending streak of success for Alex and Drew.
