Everything that happened in the world of dance music over the weekend
Paul Van Dyk Is Gonna Be OK
As details of the aftermath of Paul Van Dyk’s fall come to surface, it appears that thankfully, the trance God is in a good condition. After falling from a stage that was raised 6 feet in the air, PvD was airlifted to hospital. He had suffered a concussion and a cracked vertebrae, but remains in stable condition. However, as he must remain in hospital care, upcoming shows have been inevitably cancelled.

Deadmau5 Shares New Nine Minute Track
With half of the Mau5hax tour complete, Deadmau5 and his crew have a few days off to regroup. Not wanting to leave fans waiting, Joel celebrated the beginning of his week off by uploading 4ware 01 to his SoundCloud. The sprawling nine minute epic, has all the hallmarks of a Deadmau5 classic - driving percussion, neon synths and a constant slow build. It reminded us of "Strobe" which is always a good thing.

Tiësto has become the first electronic artist to win the Edison Award for longstanding contribution to the music industry. Congrats Tijs!
