"Deep dance music for serious souls." That perfectly describes Saturday night's Blacklight & Incense Sessions at The Arts Asylum. Chill. Deep. Dark. Techno. Everyone who was there WANTED to be there, and were so glad that at the end of the night they could say they were there. Hearing techno in Kansas City again outside the club scene was a breath of fresh air. We were there for the music. And you should hear the speaker system that was just recently completed. The sound moves you to your soul. This party is sure to be a "must-attend" this summer. Looking forward to the next one, you'll find me on the dance floor.
It all took off in 2011. Feenixpawl’s bootleg of Adele’s Rolling in the Deep hit music blogs, spreading like wildfire, gaining the boys international recognition. Then the bomb hit…the final quarter of 2011 saw the boys collaborate with Ivan Gough, one half of the legendary Australian house duo TV Rock. The talent of singer/songwriter Georgi Kay rounded out this team and together they produced “In My Mind,” an epic and emotional big room tune that Axwell immediately secured for release on his label Axtone.
Upon its release in early 2012, “In My Mind” reached Number 1 on the Beatport charts within a week. It also reached Number 2 on the HypeMachine and DMCWorld Buzz Charts. Following the success of their hit single, Kaskade asked them to remix ‘Room For Happiness’ featuring Skylar Grey from his album Fire & Ice, and Adrian Lux enlisted them to remix his hit ‘Burning’ from his self-titled album. Next on the production tip was the hit single, “Universe” that went on to be one of the biggest smashes of the fall 2012.
Feenixpawl have fast built a reputation not only for the seemingly infinite amount of energy they bring to any setting, or their innate talent to create an incredible atmosphere out of thin air, but for their intrinsic ability to produce remarkable music. Be on the look out for brand new Feenixpawl music coming soon.

Tiësto explains, “I moved to Stockholm in February 2009 and now spend several months there every year. The Swedes are enormously talented in fashion, music and art, which is extremely inspiring for me when I work on new tracks. There are also lots of great clubs within walking distance from the city center that makes Stockholm a very friendly place to party. This mix album perfectly encapsulates my Stockholm Club Life experience.”
CLUB LIFE - Volume Three Stockholm offers a look into the pristine Scandinavian city from Tiësto’s view. As with the previous CLUB LIFE compilations, this third instalment leans heavily on Tiësto’s own exclusive original productions as the driving force behind the album.

“On this compilation you can hear the influence of the new generation of Dutch and Swedish DJs. When I listen back to this mix and the tracks that I produced and remixed, it takes me back to special places and very fond memories of Stockholm. I feel like I became a little bit Swedish over the years and I can honestly say that Stockholm will always be in my heart,” Tiësto says.

Corduroy Mavricks ~ Tango
Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, Matt Mason and Rick Nielsen, better known as the Corduroy Mavericks, are quickly smashing the stereotype that the Bluegrass State and surrounding areas are lacking in prolific house music producers. With their quirky range of jazzy, soulful, techy, deep and funky house, New York, Chicago, the West Coast and other dance mecca’s have been put on notice via the sonic enthusiasm of a pair of Corduroy-loving trailblazers from the Bluegrass State.
Hailing from Chicago, Seraphim grew up with the native sounds of the windy city. Falling in love with the music of Frankie Knuckles, Paul Johnson, Dj Funk and the like, it was clear house music was going to be a permanent part of her life. Frequenting the warehouse dance floors for years, Seraphim went from occupying the dance floor to moving it.
