Last week I had the chance to see Anna Lunoe spin at one of the clubs DJ Beatstreet normally spins at, as well as sip some early morning coffee the next day. If you are not up on Anna Lunoe, I suggest you go grab up her EP “All Out” or listen to her spin live in a city near you. Anna is very well versed and has played with some of the best international acts in Australia before moving to LA. Anna and I got to speak more about her current single “All Out” as well as the growing scene in Australia and being a woman in the music industry.

This has been a busy summer for Philadelphia native Mike Taylor. He has been burning up the air waves as the featured vocalist on Dj Vice’s “World Is Our Playground”, he has performed at Wired Fest, several Mad Decent Block parties and Firefly Music Festival. I had the opportunity to sit down with Mike Taylor and talk about his music, name change, label deal and how Philadelphia has shaped him to be a better artist.
This past week I got a chance to sit down and talk to Grammy Award winning artist Estelle. She came down to Philly to hang out, do a little shopping and talk about her new single and album. The new single “Make Her Say” has caught a lot of attention with the cover art, and the song also is not what a lot of listeners would expect from Estelle. Now that Estelle has gotten the attention of all eyes and ears, her and I break down her single, new album titled “True Romance”, being human, and lastly being comfortable with yourself. A lot has happened to Estelle over the past years and it all pours out in her new album and some it flows here in this interview.

A few weeks ago I had the chance to go to Drexel’s Homecoming party and check out Dj Carnage’s set. Afterwards Carnage and I had the chance to sit down talk about what he has in the works. If you aren’t familiar with Dj Carnage, I highly suggest you head over to soundcloud and get acclimated quickly. He has has been making major noise in the electronic dance movement with his original and remix work.
His dj sets are also very diverse, and he is here to prove that categorizing him as “trap” producer is an understatement. Check out the interview to see what we can expect from Carnage’s album and his thoughts on EDM, Trap and Hip Hop music.

Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Dj Vice and talk about dj-ing and his single “World Is Our Playground”. I know that the times are changing and the dj now is becoming the main attraction of the show. It is important to focus on this, especially when there are djs like Vice, who are taking the game to the next level. DJ Vice and I talked about the dreaded “open format” title, the future of djing, the importance of production, and how Philadelphia and Mike Taylor played a role in his new single “World Is Our Playground”.

Right before the winter holidays took off, I had a chance to sit down and talk to Chris Webby. I have seen Webby perform a few times in Philly and each time his fan base just gets bigger and bigger. It’s actually quite amazing to see its growth. Philadelphia was one of the last stops of his “Homegrown” tour, so I used this opportunity to talk to Webby about the EP, the over saturation of rappers in the game, and his highly anticipated studio album.

Gilbere Forte Interview
In the honor of #TBT (Throwback Thursday) if you aren’t in the loop I am reposting my lost interview with Philadelphia area rapper Gilbere Forte. Gilbere is a good friend of mine and his content and concepts from everything to his songs and mixtape concepts have always been a head of his time. Here we talk about his previous record deal, new record deal, his song “Pray” and what we can expect from Gilbere and his camp before his major label album release comes out.
Nicky Romero Interview
Hey everyone, here is an interview I did with Nicky Romero, when he stopped by Philly during his North American tour. I am a big EDM fan myself, so when the opportunity came to sit down with Nicky, I couldn’t say no. Nicky is a cool down to earth dude working on some new music as well as VSTs for all the production nerds out there. So be on the look out!! Nicky and I sat down and talked about new tracks, future projects with Avicii, EDM in America and the songwriting process for his single “Legacy” ft. Krewella.
Armin Van Buuren Interview
A few weeks ago Armin Van Buuren came into town and smashed Festival Pier in Philadelphia. I luckily had the chance to meet up with him before his set and talk about his new album “Intense” and about some of the new musical trends in EDM. From a musical standpoint Armin tells us the stories behind some of his songs as well as his music making process.
Enjoy and keep on Trancing!
