With the rise of electronic dance music in North America comes the creation and expansion of music festivals across the continent, and my home town of Toronto has been arguably the luckiest of any North American city this summer. We'll be playing host to several major music festivals, the first being the inaugural Digital Dreams Music Festival in downtown Toronto, set on the grounds of a water/amusement park, with one of the main stages on a beach. Earmilk wants YOU to be there, and we've teamed up with Live Nation & Electronic Nation to bring you 2 VIP weekend passes to check out the likes of Kaskade, Afrojack, Alesso, Duck Sauce, Major Lazer, Chuckie, R3hab, Richie Hawtin, Steve Lawler, Dubfire, Mark Knight, and many many more.

Our friends over at Project 46 have been busy lately with Beatport and Hype Machine #1's, including hitting that spot again today for their remix of Deadmau5' "The Veldt", which we featured a few days ago and also included it in today's Midknight mix. Yesterday however, they released their finest piece of work to date in my opinion. "Brave Heart" builds up into one of the most aggressive progressive drops we've heard in a while, and the subtle vocals set the mood for what turns into an absolute epic banger.
I am beyond excited for the release of Eric Prydz' latest project Pryda. Today I've got "Allein" and "Mighty Love", both great tracks that are true to form from the legendary Swede. Its only a few more days until the release, and you can be sure to hear my favourites next week here on The Club. Apparently he's afraid of flying, and so he doesn't come to North America often, but with festival season ramping up here, he's playing some highly anticipated sets at Identity Festival and some other major music festivals on this side of the pond.
Yes, the following is a remix of Justin Bieber. And yes, its awesome. Way to go Dada Life.

We all know the average age of today's upcoming producers and musicians is becoming increasingly young, but who knew I'd be featuring tracks from 15 and 16 year olds so often. Today I've got the latest from Julian Jordan, whose upcoming collab with Sander van Doorn is one of my most highly anticipated tracks at the moment. I also featured an edit of Alesso's "Years" up top today from 15 year old Jakob Liedholm, another young Swede ready to make his mark on the scene.
This week’s tech house selection is sure to give you your weekly fix of rolling bass lines and addicting melodies. The first track of the week is a fresh off the shelf release by Peter Brown. His remix of John De Mark’s ‘Tech Is That’ simply makes you want to bust a groove on your daily walk to work. I've also got the latest from Prok & Fitch, Chris Lake, and Ahmet Sendil's most recent tech banger, "Just Might". Meanwhile, Sharam Jey gives us his best impersonation of Daft Punk..
If you love the music like I do, make sure you support the artists and purchase the music at a music outlet such as Beatport or similar!
