Good morning! To start off the week, I have some news for you regarding Porter Robinson’s Essential Mix, Swedish House Mafia’s Miami 2012 plans, the Red Bull Music Academy, and Paris Hilton’s house album. Please read more after the jump.
Porter Robinson Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1
Radio 1 hosts some of the world’s most notorious parties, and their upcoming ‘Radio 1 Live in Hull’ event will be no exception. From Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th January, the commanders of UK national radio have picked Hull as their destination of choice, taking over various sites across the city. On Friday 27thJanuary the Essential Mix goes LIVE from Hull City Hall as Porter Robinson joins Fedde Le Grand, Chuckie and Judge Jules for a very special night!
After 2011 Porter is a natural choice, having completed more in 12 months than some DJ’s have achieved in 12 years. Touring with Skrillex and Tiësto, releasing a Beatport-crashing EP on Skrillex’s OWSLA label, remixing Lady Gaga and Avicii and headlining his own North American tour, Porter proved beyond doubt that he is THE name to watch in 2012.
What’s more, this will be the FIRST UK appearance of his career! What greater way to make an entrance than with your first ever Essential Mix, in your first ever visit – all live on the country’s most influential channel.
Tune in live from 11PM GMT on Friday 27th January to hear Porter Robinson live on Radio 1’s world famous Essential Mix, and listen again for 7 days after via BBC iPlayer. For full information on the entire event, click here.
Swedish House Mafia’s Miami 2012 plans

Paris Hilton to Release House Album
First, there’s reports that Paris is trying to learn how to DJ. Then, last week we told you Paris Hilton had spent New Year’s Eve hanging off the arm of dance music giant, Afrojack. Now it looks like the hotel heiress is bedding down in the scene.
Recent reports suggest Hilton is in the process of making a house music album.
Speaking to FHM, the Simple Life star said, “I have a huge passion for house music. It always has been my passion. I just haven’t been able to focus on it, because I have been doing reality TV for so long now”.
Paris went on to claim that she had been working with lots of top DJ’s on the album and that it would be “perfect party music”.
It’s not the first time Paris has delved into the world of music. In 2006 she released an album ‘Paris’ which was preceded by a single, ‘Stars are Blind’ which went top ten in 17 countries.
The song was a simple reggae ditty, channeling the spirit of UB40, if UB40 had been fronted by an internet sex tape sensation rather than a chubby faced brummie.
Paris added that she had been to 100 raves in the past year, heard every type of music and hung out with a lot of top DJs. Lets hope one of them taught her to edit the vocal out of this.
