I was anxious to post this track for you guys because I am so glad to finally clear its rumors. The buzz after this past year’s Ultra Music Festival left many new tunes unidentified and gossiped, namely the “collab” between Afrojack & Steve Aoki in what was being deemed ‘Morfium.’ With thousands of you tube comments gasping for more information, Afrojack has released Lost & Found 2, the follow up slice of the big guys unreleased crate. The contents lies ‘Show Me Your Rage’, the true name of the track. Love this side of Afrojack because it reminds me of those dirty washing-machine speaking sounds from the Bloody Beetroots in 2008.

Recently receiving the #7 spot in Resident Advisor’s (truthful) Top 100 DJ Poll, Loco Dice is undisputedly one of the most successful, talented, and influential DJs in the global scene. From his unprecedented knack for A&R to his pumping DJ sets to thousands around the world, Dice garners a respect from those in and out of the industry, which is why I humbly requested to have a chat with the man to see what he’s been up to and what’s coming up for him.

Please read on after the jump to see our conversation about his label Desolat, how he likes playing in America, and what he thinks about people calling Vegas the new Ibiza, as well as find out how to receive one of the 4 pairs of tickets that we’ll be giving away to Loco Dice and Victor Calderone this Saturday, December 17th at The Music Box in Hollywood.

This year during Ultra/Miami Music Week, we had so much fun in all of our experiences each day that it took us this long to gather our thoughts and reviews for what turned out to be one roller coaster of a trip. But needless to say, it was heaven on earth going back and forth from Downtown Miami to South Beach, seeing some of the best and most exclusive lineups that we’ll see all year. We’ll get down to brass tacks with what we did and the best performances we saw, our personal experiences, along with a bunch of nutty photos, videos, and finally some huge new tunes and live mixes from UMF for you kids to salivate over.
