Musuem Mondays: How Avicii Made Me Respect Him…And Subsequently Hate Him.

DEAD FRIDAYS: WEDDING SMASHERS

This weeks addition is going to be a very different DEAD FRIDAY. Last weekend, I DJed my brother’s wedding. He selected all of the music for the evening, and I gotta say, he did a pretty fantastic job. He compiled a massive play list of the best POP songs ever, with a tonne of variety,…

**EXCLUSIVE** MELODY JOY WAS MADE TO LOVE

She’s co-hosted my RADIO SHOW, collabed on several tunes (coming soon), appeared as one of my FACEBOOK CREEPS OF THE WEEK, and partied her ass off with me, but I’m still surprised, flattered and honoured that a certain rising NYC POP star has picked DKGL to EXCLUSIVELY host her newest tune….
