  Justin Boreta, Ed Ma, and Joshua Mayer (aka Boreta, edIT, and Ooah, respectively) are three guys that got together with a mission to jam. Together, they are The Glitch Mob.

The Tightrope of A Circus Recordmaster

Flux_Pavillion_JBrasted 0520

    A pioneer of dubstep. A true BASS-music virtuoso. His family and close friends might call Mr. Steele by his given name, Joshua, but the massive crowds that his music draws know him affectionately as “Flux Pavillion.” I was fortunate enough to get the chance to sit down with Josh to discuss his personal …

A Crystalline Exploration of ‘The Illicit Aesthetic’


    “Perspective” is such a fascinating concept, especially when applied to art, in its many forms. It can delineate the gray area between “an inspired work” and an “eyesore.” The complex interaction between the artist’s cardinal intentions and the subjective interpretation, of the one experiencing the piece, yields a potentially diverse spectrum of subjective …

“The Jedi Force Behind Yoder Productions”


    I would have to have to say that I am a believer in serendipity, at least to some degree. When it comes to the entertainment industry “make it or break it” scenarios can result from a handshake, a well-worded email, or from someone saying “you have to see this or listen to this.” …

“A Laser-Guided Immortal Eye Can See Eternity”


  Point and shoot. Run and gun. Steady hands. Keen eye. A meticulous approach applied methodically should have but one desired outcome: that moment where it all comes together. For any photographer trying to capture an isolated aspect of an experience or an environment, so it can be perpetually revisited, that immortal moment is what …

“King Cake & Cocktails With Borgore”


  Take the Norman Rockwell depiction of a kid waiting for Christmas morning and times it by a million. That was me as soon as I found out Winter Circle Productions and EDMutual were bringing the BASS-legend, Borgore, to Republic New Orleans. I think that any day you mark on your calendar that lets you …

“Heart, Soul, And Mau5Heads”


    I know people that keep track of time by counting down to their next festival or event, myself included. I personally love the feeling of looking forward to a festival almost as much as the festival itself. Almost. There’s something about the festival atmosphere that is so freeing and liberating. The music, the …

“Stepping Into The Vortex And Embracing Its Awareness”


  In some instances individuals, that are defined by their quest for spiritual enlightenment, can be called monks by the outside world. What do you call a group of shamanistically-inspired artists that incorporate multiple mediums: astral projections, liquid geometry, and fractal reality? Terms that might not crystallize in the brain converge in the mind’s eye. …

“Playing It Forward Is Just The Beginning”


  I believe in the power of music. I believe in the power of communion, the ability to motivate and bring people together for a common purpose. The power of music is essentially limitless. Only the motivation behind it and the direction in which you take the platform are parameters for the potential range and …

Electric Feels And So Much More


    Imagine for a moment that you are the recipient of the EDM community’s magical embrace and that you would like to give something back as a show of appreciation. You’ve been thinking long and hard and your solution for this task involves getting artist cooperation and establishing a readily-identifiable brand to coordinate multiple …

Time To Wake Up And Rave


    Unless you live in the rarified air at the top of the “layer cake,” most of the world has to go to work. Regardless if it’s to support: family, vices, travel, or just the basic needs to sustain life, the fact that most goods and services have a cost, is inescapable. Anyone with …

An Electronic Awakening For The Collective Consciousness

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 5.49.07 PM

    What do you call the feeling when you lose yourself in the music, and are you truly ever lost if you belong to a community of your peers? What distinct advantages are there to recognizing the transcendent qualities of an environment and culture that promote individuality as well as harmony as a group? …
