Sweden’s own DJ/producer/songwriter Aron Ekberg – otherwise known as AronChupa – has unveiled the official music video for his smash hit single “I’m An Albatraoz.” The track was originally released in Sweden in August, and has since garnered over 20 million streams on Spotify (on its way to triple platinum) and over 1 million views on YouTube. “I’m An Albatraoz” was released on iTunes in the U.S. last week, and the official video premiered exclusively on VEVO on 10/13.

Aron had spent quite some time wanting to create music in English, so he asked his sister if she could sing on a track that he began producing. The result was “I’m An Albatraoz,” which exploded to #1 on Spotify in Sweden and topped the viral charts. “I think this is insane and unreal, but very, very fun,” says AronChupa on his success. “I will try to live in this moment as much as I can, because it could all be over tomorrow.” Check out the video here:

ALESSO

The Grammy nominated Swedish DJ/produer ALESSO has just released his new music video for his song, Heroes (we could be) which features Tove Lo. The video stars ALESSO and Tove Lo as themselves and directed by Emil Nava, the video follows a group of children with secret, supernatural powers who are locked up and forced to hide their true identities–until our hero arrives to set them free in emphatic fashion. Tapping into his willingness to push boundaries, ALESSO’s style resonates through his videos and his live shows; his recent video for “Tear The Roof Up” was shot entirely in monochrome and based around the concept of Alpha and Omega and a journey through heaven and hell. Check out the video here:

The song is set to release on November 16th. ALESSO will be returning to the US for a headlining show at The Shrine Expo Hall in Los Angeles on November 22 having previously sold out the venues on his world-dominating “Uprising” tour last year. There is also a show planned for San Francisco at this year’s Spookfest. Take a look at the upcoming show dates:

I am really excited about the upcoming Black Mass 2014 Tour by Black Veil Brides. They have definitely created a lineup that will feature great styles of music all while insuring everyone to have a great time. Along with support by Falling in Reverse and Set It Off, you will get treated to the eclectic and energetic music of the Drama Club.

The producer/DJ duo Drama Club can be described as Electro House/Shock Pop, but there is no need to categorize them into a genre checkbox. Just simply put, their music will make you feel alive, dance your ass off and embrace your individuality and maintaining a positive spirit. Might be a tall order for some, but not for (The Twins) Zero and Andromeda, whom completely embody the self-empowering nature of their music. Drama Club explains,

“There are no barriers in music as far as we’re concerned, Kids today, have a broad range of musical tastes and are very open mined. We’re mixing together tons of music for this tour. Blending Rock, Electro-house, and everything in between. We’ve already done a sick remix of Andy Black’s ‘They Don’t Need To Understand’ and are currently putting our spin on some Asking Alexandria, The Used, Bring Me The Horizon, and many more.

Drama Club is all about self-empowerment, following your dreams, embracing your own individuality, and, above all else, self-expression through art and music. Black Veil Brides may be a hard rock band, but this tour made perfect sense for Drama Club because of the positive spirit and energy that we all have in common. Black Veil Brides create incredibly empowering music and their shows bring thousands of like-minded people together to celebrate in harmony. We are all about that energy, expression, and acceptance. We are incredibly excited to be part of the Black Mass Tour.”

They have just released their music video for their new single, Halloween 365 (Never Coming Down) and check it out here:

Deadmau5 is set to return to Miami to perform a free show for his fans. Earlier in the year, deadmau5 expressed his grievance about an event of his which featured VIP/table crowd. The Ice Palace in Miami is a 60,000 square foot studio space and warehouse and can accommodate 4,000 guests for an all access show.
