Heatbeat was first introduced to me earlier this year. The Argentinean duo’s “Rocker Monster” came at me through my car speakers with an aggressive edge. Matias Faint, 26, and Agustin Servente, 25, are the masterminds behind this DJ/Producer combo from Buenos Aires. In hearing this first single they started to peak my interest.

Then they gave my life a little “Extra Bacon”. This EDM banger has been stuck in my head like the thought of bacon is every morning when I get up. Any track that is named “Extra Bacon” better live up to all the hype because everybody could use some more bacon in their life to make it complete. The very thought of bacon is making me hungry for bacon and I need more… Bacon.

So check out their track “Extra Bacon” and continue to watch this unbelievable duo rise to electronic greatness.


Erik Arbores: 14-year-old Dutch Phenom

While tuning into ElectricArea, on Sirius XM, on my ride home last night I heard an EDM track that made me take the radio volume up a couple of notches. The song titled “Bliss” was by a Dutch DJ named Erik Arbores. Once the track was over I was in pure astonishment. Erik Arbores was only 14 years old.

After checking out his write-up over at Armada Music I became even more impressed. Not only is this kid a musical savant he is also an educational giant. Erik started crafting his musical talent, at the age of 4, when he started to learn how to play the piano. At the age of 11, he took his piano skills and combined them with electronic music that he mixed on the computer program Fruity Loops. This is where he started to get his love for creating EDM tracks. His big break happened when he showed one of his tracks to Armin van Buuren on the Dutch TV show “De Wereld Draait Door.” Soon after that, at the age of 14, he decided to sign to van Buuren’s label Armada Music where he released his very impressive “Take It” E.P. Oh yeah, he started to take courses at the University of Delft in that same year too.

Get the complete story over at Armada Music and check out a young phenom that is breaking into the EDM industry.
