The dance music prodigy from Santa Barbara, California, Seven Lions, released his incendiary set from his Ultra Music Festival debut at the OWSLA stage on Saturday, March 16th. Through his cohesive, yet incredibly eclectic, set consisting of tasteful Electro-House, Dubstep and everything in between, he was able to provide listeners with a powerful, deep-rooted experience unlike any other. This Seven Lions performance, along with his many more to come, serves to strengthen his highly sought-after appeal by displaying not only his superb music in a live setting, but also his prowess as a DJ. He is set to continue on his ascent to international dance music stardom as 2013 has already proven to be another groundbreaking year.

Last night, dance music royalty, Fatboy Slim, played probably his most unique gig of his career — a music charity benefit inside the walls of the House of Commons in London adjacent to the river Thames. While the attendees of the event were far away from Fatboy Slim’s usual neon-clad clubbers (Fatboy Slim admits that he expected to see some “bad Dad dancing from the MPs”), the fact that this event actually happened is a milestone in dance music history, as nearly 2 decades ago a law was passed inside the same building that outlawed some forms of dance music events and put a serious damper on underground clubbing in the British capital. With this successful charity event under its belt, who knows what kind of shenanigans might happen in the historic building in years ahead.

In celebration of the event as well as the release of his new documentary on his massive Big Beach Bootique 5 event, Mr. Cook has given us a fun new bootleg to get everyone ready for his upcoming performances at BOTH weekends of Ultra Music Festival in Miami this month. Check it below.
