As dance music keeps evolving, Mike Mago is perhaps the best example of how diverse
its artists can be. His feet tucked in both underground house music as well as
mainstream sounds, he’s endlessly expanding his musical path, making sure things just keep on getting more interesting for this Dutch DJ/producer/label boss.
For the main audience, the first introduction to Mike Mago comes in 2014, when he releases
the Dragonette collab ‘Outlines’. The track is a destined hit and takes him to the stars as it
gains worldwide DJand radio support, turns gold in three countries, double platinum in
Holland, while the video has garnered over 12M YouTube views, and the track counts over
25M Spotify plays.
Following this major hit success, Mago delivers a series of remixes for Ellie Goulding, Avicii
(twice), Clean Bandit, Years & Years and Bastille a.o. After Outlines the Dutchman continues
his winning streak with ‘Deeper Love’ (10M Spotify), together with 2016’s hit single ‘Secret Stash’ (a renewed collab with Dragonette also at 10M on Spotify) and 2017 releases like Feels So Good (6M) and One In A Trillian (4M) and Remedy growing as his biggest to date reaching 20M and still growing, making Mike Mago one of the go-to
producer of this day.
It’s apparent in his touring schedule, playing more gigs on key festivals (including
Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld), the Ibiza isle and clubs all over the world. Indeed, he’s turned into an omnipresent artist, able to work an underground dancefloor as well as rock a mainstage. “I’ve always loved the blend of multiple genres”, Mago explains. “On the one side I’m into really strong melodies, while I also appreciate the more groovy stuff. In short, it’s the combination of hooks, rhythms and touching vocals that get my motor running.”
As said, dance music is moving in a similar direction, incorporating more and more tastes
and styles to its palette. Which explains the success of Mike Mago these last years, who’s
displayed a choice of elegant dance records and positive, uplifting vibes, raising expectations for what he’s about to do next. Well, with a couple of promising tracks on the new Crossing Borgers pt 2 EP aswell as singer-songwriter collabs in the works for late 2018, and Mike Mago perfecting his mainstage performances, it looks like he’s about to take things next level… again.

The Dot And The Line is an English musical duo formed in 2017 in LA, consisting of keyboardist, guitarist and programmer Ned Douglas and songwriter, vocalist Hetty Clark. Born from of a shared love of downtempo electronica (Portishead, The XX, Haelos), the pair started writing together to carve out their sound and produce their debut EP. Analog synths, programmed beats and Hetty’s hushed vocals combine to create an evocative blend, both melancholic and cinematic. A soundtrack to your rainy days.
Ned Douglas has worked as programmer and engineer for some of the world’s best artists including Katy Perry, Stevie Nicks, Ringo Star, Mick Jagger and Ke$ha. His songwriting and production work has also been featured in many movies and TV shows.
Hetty Clark’s lyrics are about finding beauty in emotionally charged situations. She is interested in expressing the ebb and flow of human intimacy, a natural rhythm that shapes relationships over time. Her songs are signed with 5 Alarm Music.
Hiding the truth is a feel good track that explores the blurry lines of seduction. It’s a song that tries to capture the decadent mood of a new relationship, the mood of effervescence and light but its also about how euphoria can be quickly consumed by the fiery sensation of not really knowing what’s going on.
The original song is minimal sounding so we wanted to see how the song might sound as a dance remix. The collaboration with DJ Modes has worked well because he has effectively reinvented the track beyond adding beats and instrumentation. Modes’s interpretation of our track enhances the upbeat, feel good factor of the track, which we love and it reminds us of the fantastic work of remixer RAC ( Remix Artist Collective) and his remix, ‘We belong,’ (feat Katie Herzig) – The Dot and The Line
Breakthrough L.A. producer Mahalo has released another deep house track that
further solidifies his career as one to watch. With backing from one of the biggest
legendary names on the scene, Easy To Love by Mahalo featuring Vivaswan is out

the release going towards the Hawaii Relief fund for the Volcanic eruptions.
Incorporating ethereal vocals from Vivaswan that soar high up in the mix, alongside a
throbbing bassline that sends us hurtling through the genre blends, Easy To Love is as
instant as its name suggests. Mahalo tells us: “Easy To Love is the darker, sexier side
of the liquid sound. The stunning vocals out of Vivaswan really complete the vibe and
make this one of my favorite tunes I’ve ever made.”
Originally from Hawaii, Mahalo has now set up base in L.A. where his ingenious and
unique take on deep and liquid house is creating a scintillating start for this rising star.
His tracks Current Mood, Everything Goes Black and Here With Me have earned spins

Hardwell , Tië sto, Avicii, Sam Feldt, Don Diablo, Benny Benassi, as well as radio

year since starting out, Mahalo has already played EDC Las Vegas, Nocturnal

We don’t know much about Beth Ditto but we do when it comes to Disciples of course, so when we suddenly saw a new remix in our feed on Soundcloud , we were very excited straight away and fell in love with Ditto. Ditto’s voice mixed with Disciples production sounds like it should be played in the next Gatsby film for a party scene. Party vibes all over!
