Popular/New Artist of the Week: The Chainsmokers

Catching-up-with-The-Chainsmokers-HOF-featured

I’m sure this name is very familiar to a large variety of our readers because this group has been killing the game these last two years. The Chainsmokers consist of two members, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, who formed their group in 2012.

Upcoming Event: FORT AQUA

Fort Adams Banner
Platinum has some dope things going on this summer and we want to share them
with you! Coming up next is  AQUA at Fort Adams in Newport RI July 3rd (get your tickets asap). Newport, RI is known for being one of the best places to be during America’s favorite Holiday. The bar scene is fire and the babes at second beach are even hotter. You can spend your weekend killing a twelve pack of coronas on the beach (with lime of course), then take a quick nap and rally for the bar scene at night because Thames street is at its all time most live at this time of year.
So, now that you’ve decided to come to Newport for the fourth, PEG has the perfect way for you to kick off a memorable (or maybe not so memorable) weekend. AQUA is best known for their insane light show and state of the art water production; making it a very unique, one of a kind experience. Obviously, Newport is known for being exceptionally beautiful, and Fort Adams is the essence of this beauty, so it couldn’t be a better venue for this event.
Headlining this highly anticipated event is DJ Twalle.  Twalle has performed with numerous of the top 100 DJs like Cash Cash, Chainsmokers, Borgeous, Adventure Club, Kap Slap and many more. He has also played Life in Color all the way down to Miami, but it all started in Rhode Island (check out his soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/twalle and my personal favorite “sip on this”).
The line up also includes some extremely talented local DJs that are ready to get you pumped for the fourth. To keep the momentum going, and spirits high PEG has a surprise in store for all attendees at the end of the show.
We can’t wait to party with you all, hope your ready for the best weekend ever.
Since America is the best, lets celebrate it the way it should be with the good beer (yes, there is a beer garden), good music, and the best people.

Finding new music is made easy using Soundcloud. By following and searching artists, friends or even random people it creates easy access to hear remix’s, original songs and more. One song in particular I came across recently is Years and Years, King remix by Gryffin. The lyrics are catchy, with an easy going but fun electronic house beat in the background. The original song by Years and Years has a different, more pop vibe while Gryffin creates a different electronic feel. This is his newest remix, however is most known for their Tove Lo’s Talking Body remix and Ellie Goulding’s Burn remix.
