Take a '#Selfie' with The Chainsmokers and Disco Donnie Presents

Though we know them for the Billboard-topping, international mega-hit “Selfie,” Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers have come from very humble beginnings. Pall had been DJ for Sweet 16s and Bah Mitzahs since he was 12 and Taggart was a music business major turned producer who didn’t believe his hobby could merit a career until he won a contest that gave him the opportunity to open for Steve Aoki – little did he know Aoki would be the one to sign his future hit.

The inspiration behind “#Selfie” was fairly simple, “Alex had the idea of making a song like ‘Eat Sleep Rave Repeat,’ where this guy is ranting and seems like he is on an acid trip,” says Taggart. “We thought, let’s do something like that but make it a girl saying incoherent stupid things while in the bathroom of a nightclub, then she will say, ‘let me take a selfie,’ and it’ll drop.” Finishing the song in 30-minutes, after the two posted the track on SoundCloud, their friend Oliver Luckett, head of social media start-up theAudience, passed it along to Steve Aoki and subsequently, The Chainsmokers made their debut on Dim Mak Records.

“‘#Selfie’ has opened a lot of doors for us,” says Pall. “It has set up collaborations that I can’t mention yet but I’m really excited about. The best is yet to come, so buckle up!” Buckle up we shall! Having just signed a record deal with Republic Records, The Chainsmokers are in the middle of a U.S. tour and will later be releasing an album in the near future.

GTA and Disco Donnie Presents are Taking Over Florida

Though Matt van Toth and Julio Mejia of GTA haven’t been in the scene for long, they know exactly how to steal the show with their unique blend of funky rhythms. After meeting each other through a mutual friend online, the Miami natives uncovered an instant chemistry and immediately went to work in the studio, “[We knew collaborating would be a good idea] the first couple of times we met up and made some tracks. Literally, the first song we made got picked up by Afrojack for his label, which didn’t get released because we couldn’t get the sample cleared, but that was literally the first track we made together.”

Since their official debut with “It’s Time,” the two have gone on to release music on Diplo’s Mad Decent and off-shoot project Jeffree’s, Laidback Luke’s Mixmash, A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Records, and Steve Angello’s Size Records – and they are just getting started.

Unashamed by their outright refusal to be pigeonholed in any one category, GTA’s originals, remixes, mixes, and live sets range from trap, house, moombahton, electro, booty bass, salsa, big room, and anything they can put their spin on. With their popular mixtape series-turned-tour, “Death to Genres,” GTA promises to get all the bodies moving no matter the tempo; no matter the genre.

Ferry Corsten and Disco Donnie Presents Rock Your Body Rock in Dallas, Scottsdale, Orlando, Tampa

With over two decades of experience, Ferry Corsten is far from a newcomer. Creating a long list of anthems over his extensive career, the Dutch talent is undeniably one of the most respected names in the music industry today.

Getting his start at the ripe young age of 16, Ferry sunk his teeth in the record business producing underground hardcore gabber tracks before eventually transitioning to the trance genre. His first single to make it on any chart was “Don’t Be Afraid” under the alias Moonman – but this was only the beginning for the young talent. Under his solo project of System F, Ferry gave the world a classic in “Out of the Blue.” And as Gouryella, a partnership with another trance legend, Tiësto, the two received a gold record for the track, coincidentally called, “Gouryella.”

Over the years, releases like “Check It Out,” “Minack,” “Brute,” “Punk,” “Rock Your Body Rock,” and “Feel It” have cemented Ferry’s place among the leaders in electronic music. With his podcast #CorstenCountdown and his imprint Flashover Recordings, Ferry continues to showcase new sounds and artists to the world.

Currently, you can find Ferry in the studio, still continuing to innovate his sound and inspire new acts even after all these years. We are excited to bring Dutch DJ, producer, label owner, and self-professed music addict Ferry Corsten to a city near you.

Presenting Cedric Gervais in Cleveland and Charlotte

Disco Donnie Presents would like to extend our congratulations to Cedric Gervais for his recent Grammy win for his remix of Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness.” Winning Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical, Gervais beat out many other nominees and hopefuls with the infectious single.

Though we’ve been following the French export for nearly a decade, Gervais reached an entirely new audience this past summer thanks to the Lana rework. The “Summertime Sadness” remix reached #6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 making it the biggest hit of his career.

Having just finished the final leg of his European tour at the close of 2013, Gervais went back in the studio to put the finishing touches on his remix of Miley Cyrus’ latest release, “Adore You.” Taking the single out of the bedroom and into the clubs, the remix, out now on Spinnin’ Records, is sure to find its way to dance floors across the globe.

With 2014 already starting off with a bang, we are excited to bring Cedric Gervais and his Summertime Sadness tour to Cleveland and Charlotte later this year.
