      Dash Berlin closing out EDC 2013 as the sun came up on Monday morning has gone down in history as a legendary performance. He had a Kinetic Field full of people in the palm of his hand as the sun rose, even after three whole nights of raving. Berlin is a living trance lord and his music speaks to a whole generation of fanatics. So when he offered us his 5 top artists to watch at EDC, we sat up and listened...

      I've been a fan of his productions for a while now, really love his fresh sound. The cool thing is that he's also a really friendly dude, which made working with him (on a collab for my new album, “We Are”) a real pleasure. Watch out for that track that we did and don't miss his set, this guy absolutely kills it!

      Isaac is one of the founders of the hardstyle genre and an absolute legend. I've been following him for a very long time and he never disappoints. Excellent skills with good ear for the hottest new sounds make him a DJ not be missed.  



      Armin van Buuren

      Armin van Buuren needs no introduction. Something magical happens every time he graces the decks. I love to watch him bring the magic, he is like a mentor to me. Take my word for it, you don't want to miss the number one Trance DJ in the world at EDC!  



      Carnage

      That's my nephew! We did a crazy back to back set a while ago that caused quite a stir on the internet, which made it even more fun to look back on. I respect him for having the guts to play everything he wants all in the name of a good time. I'm a fan.

      These boys are from my hometown and they just did an unbelievable remix for my new single “Here Tonight.” I'm glad that they are on the lineup, because these guys deliver something new and exciting to the States. It's hard and certainly not for the weak-hearted, but believe me, they get the party started. Go check them out!
