    With MOTi’s Arrival, Tiësto Continues to Import Talent to Hakkasan

    By Deanna Rilling

    We really just should rename Hakkasan “Tiëstoland,” because he’s got a knack for bringing in the hottest rising EDM talent to support him (and even earn their own headlining spots). Add to that arsenal the 27-year-old Dutch DJ/producer MOTi (a.k.a. Timo Romme). Following a busy production plate that’s included work with Quintino, DVBBS and, yes, […]

    Scamming the Grammys

    By Deanna Rilling

    When the Grammy committee announced the 2013 nominees for Best Dance Recording, there were the usual suspects who churned out massive commercial club-bangers: Avicii’s “Levels,” which was not only my pick for the most overplayed club song of 2012, but licensed in car and cruise commercials. Also nominated were Calvin Harris’ “Let’s Go,” “Bangarang” by three-time Grammy winner Skrillex, and “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia. Rounding out the category? Al Walser with “I Can’t Live Without You.” If your first reaction was, “Who???” you’d be in the majority.
