Australian DJ Duo Pulls The Perfect Troll On EDM Crowd

When seeing the video below you’re first wondering whether this has been done before, and why this isn’t standard practice for every DJ (with a sense of humour) to do every once in a while.

Their bold move results into a couple of boos and fingers in the air. But after a few seconds the crowd even begins to sing along. The video has ... Read more

We Are Your Friends, The Accurate Trailer

The first movie focusing on the EDM scene, starring Zac Efron, just got a little more authentic with this hilarious trailer recut.

Exclusive Interview with Adriatique

2 guys named Adrian met each other back in 2008 in a club in Germany and were both really impressed by each other’s set. They became good friends and started producing under the name Adriatique. They now live together in Zurich; it sounds almost like a fairy tale with a happy ending. But the end of this tale is nowhere near; it is just the beginning for the rising duo from Diynamic.
