Dan Bilzerian, EZoo, & 8 Cheaper Ways To Prove You’re The World’s Biggest Tool

Poker star playboy, amateur karate master, and current leader of Instagram's heated trust fund flex-off Dan Bilzerian just bought up an entire section of Electric Zoo festival in New York, and after his LIV Miami incident in December, we couldn't be more thrilled for Randall's Island. So, not only will he be a part of your EZoo experience, but you will be able to glance up whenever you like to check on him and his half-million-dollar party... to make sure it didn't just spontaneously catch fire or anything weird like that.

According to TMZ, Bilzerian put $654,400 on his Amex Black card to secure an entire private VIP deck of Electric Zoo Sept. 4-6, which includes a $500,000 alcohol tab, a personal fireworks controller, and room for 200.

So if you're in a tight spot scraping together the $240 for general admission, and the knowledge of having to eventually be near him discourages you, just remember: from a business standpoint, he made a really poor call. There are plenty of ways to demonstrate your reign as the Earth's supreme tool without spending so much of your "poker" money.

The Beatport Box 64

Welcome back to our series with Beatport known as The Beatport Box, where we bring you the best of Beatport exclusives on a weekly basis. This week, Adam Beyer goes tech house on Truesoul, Cazzette's Together receives a stunning pair of remixes, Skypatrol tells us to Shut Up! via tech trance, and more.

Techno | Camea - The Hallway EP [Bpitch Control]
Hot off her Full Body Workout mix for Get Physical, Berlin-based Camea returns with an incredible three tracker through BPitch, The Hallway. A combination of peak time techno and kaleidoscopic tech house, Camea's ever-evolving sound can be heard as clearly on this EP the Funktion One stacks these tracks will surely be playing from in the coming weeks. Get the EP here.
Tech House | Adam Beyer - Time Flies EP [Truesoul]
Here we find Adam Beyer taking a rare outing from Drumcode and a rare departure from techno on his new Time Flies EP. Landing on Truesoul, the big Swede serves up three prime cuts of shoulder-shuffling, hip-shaking tech house. Tiger Stripes goes a little off piste on the remix duty, with oddball vibes emanating. The pick of the bunch here is Waste Land--a true club roller. Pick it up here.
Breaks/House/Progressive | Cazzette - Together Remixes [ICONS]
Swedish duo Cazzette's first single off their upcoming EP Desserts has been given two completely unique remixes by LA duo Lost Kings and Anjuna rising star Beckwith. The former twist the track into a progressive, piano-driven smile-inducer, while the latter goes completely left field with a remix that sits somewhere between deep, progressive, and breakbeat. Not what we were expecting, but certainly left us pleasantly surprised. Download the package here.
Progressive House | Eric Prydz - Opus (Original Mix) [Pryda]
Needing no introduction, former Swedish House Mafia member and true prog house superstar Eric Prydz releases his highly anticipated follow up to Generate, Opus. Staying far from the typical EDM sound of his Scandanavian contemporaries, Opus is an exercise in the masterfully articulated arpeggiation and tension-building drive that defines the sound of peak hour progressive house. The kick doesn't even come in for almost four minutes--that's old school. Grab it here.
Trance | ReOrder & Standerwick pres. Skypatrol - Shut Up! (Original Mix) [FSOE]
Princes of blow-you-hair-back trance ReOrder and Ian Standerwick unite once again under their Skypatrol superduo name for Shut Up!, a track that will leave you at a loss for words almost from the start. Then you get to the drop, and the words get smacked right out of your mouth again. Quite the appropriate track title. Purchase here.

Maceo Plex Unleashes 2-Track ‘Solar Sampler’ Ahead Of New Album

Maceo Plex is gearing up for the release of Solar, the follow-up LP to his 2011 album Life Index, and in the meantime, he's delivered a two-track taste of what's to come with the aptly named Solar Sampler EP.

A-side Wash Away My Tears is a lush and emotive trek through robotic heartbreak as dreamy synths and poignant melodies tug at your soul. Clocking in at 118 BPM, it's a slow-burning single made for the starlit sky of Black Rock City. On the flip-side is Solar Detroit, a dark and dramatic journey that builds up around a spacey atmosphere before exploding with cosmic synth stabs, rumbling bass, and MP's signature percussion.

Maceo had this to say about the EP:

“This release is some music taken from my upcoming album Solar, named after our newborn baby of the same name. It is due out in October. ‘Wash Away My Tears (12 inch mix)’ is a more DJ friendly version of the original on the album. ‘Solar Detroit’ was written when I took little baby Solar to Detroit in May.”
Solar Sampler will be available July 31 via Maceo's own Ellum label. The Solar LP will be released in October.

Major Lazer & KickRaux Remix Reggae Singer Kranium’s ‘Nobody Has To Know’

Reggae vocalist Kranium's two-year-old single Nobody Has To Know just got a mainstream boost courtesy of rap vocals from Ty Dolla $ign and a dancehall-flavored moomb-esque remix from Major Lazer and KickRaux.

The original's syrupy-filtered dembow and Gyptian-style vocals made the track a dubplate classic and gave birth to numerous unofficial flips. The production draws similarities to Felix Jaehn's recent remix of Jamaican singer OMI's Cheerleader--that track shot to the top of the Billboard charts, and it looks like Major Lazer and KickRaux are aiming for the same result with this refreshing rework.

Although there is no word on a release date, you can stream the full song up above.

Snails And heRobust Say ‘Pump This’ In The Trap

Snails (pictured) and heRobust collaborate on a smooth and grooving electro-meeets-trap remix of Pump This, their release from 2014 and one of LessThan3's top electro tracks of the year.

The duo has been rinsing this version quite frequently in live sets for the past year, with none other than Skrillex cosigning the production, too. Snails will also likely be dropping the tune in sets later this summer at festivals including Moonrise, Electric Zoo, TomorrowWorld, and more.
