It's been a while, hasn't it? Well it turns out a change of lifestyle (the result of a new job) leaves one with little time for anything else! But since so much has happened in the last month it's time for a house music catch up!
1. About a million festivals have announced their line ups including the huge Ultra Music Festival being held at Miami's WMC in a few weeks. They host Tiesto, Deadmau5, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Carl Cox, Eric Prydz, Paul Oakenfold, Above & Beyond and, well, you get the picture.
2. London's most successful club Ministry of Sound may be forced to close. Actually that's a far-fetched possibility, but according to an official statement if the proposals of a new residential block opposite the club go ahead Ministry could lose its entertainment licence.
3. Calvin Harris launched his new label, Fly Eye. According to the high-flying Scot, "My goal for Fly Eye is to release the most exciting club music I can get my hands on. There will be absolutely no shite."
4. Deadmau5 continued to grab the headlines, first playing to a huge crowd at his home-nation's Winter Olympics, taking over the charts and clubs (again) with Michael Woods' remix of I Said, unveiling another tattoo, and finally taking over our TV screens with his hit Ghosts 'N Stuff. Phew!
5. Of course, this is all nothing, because the biggest news of the month is owed to the following tunes becoming HUGE! Enjoy..
