      A slew of dance legends have opened up about the immense mental and physical toll of professional DJing in an eye-opening new documentary, Why We DJ — Slaves To The Rhythm. 
      The DJ Sounds produced doco was premiered recently at Amsterdam Dance Event, and features in-depth and candid discussions about mental health and addiction with acts such as Erick Morillo, Carl Cox, Luciano, Seth Troxler, Ben Pearce, and Pete Tong.
      The 40-minute film points to factors including creative pressure, constant media attention, omnipresent drugs and alcohol, and extreme sleep deprivation caused by a relentless touring schedules as to some of the reasons DJs experience such poor mental health.

That’s when it gets a bit sad. That’s why I think many DJs have problems with drugs, or even sex addiction — it’s just to cure the loneliness.”
      “We’ve lost a lot of people to drugs,” Troxler adds. “A lot of really talented people. They just kind of…floated to the wayside.”
      “I was drinking every day and chucking my life down the drain,” Ben Pearce confesses later in the film. “It got to a point that I knew that if I didn’t do something about it, I wouldn’t be around much longer.”
      Despite the obvious issues DJs face, Pete Tong says artists struggle to get support and sympathy: “Everyone’s got that image in their head of private jets and champagne…but the touring life of a DJ is really hard.”
      Why We DJ — Slaves To The Rhythm is now online, watch it below.

      DJ Snake has just revealed his next single, coming out this coming Monday, called “Broken Summer.”
      It’s only been about a month since DJ Snake released his latest single with Lauv, “A Different Way,” after premiering it atop the Arc de Triomphe in Paris during a once-in-a-lifetime performance.
      As of right now, even after checking Snake’s Snapchat, there haven’t been any previews or teasers for the song – we have no idea what it will sound like. But if it’s anything like his previous single, it’s going to be more melodic and toned down than some of his higher-energy songs.
      Heck, he’s not even sending it to his good friend Dillon Francis…


      Regardless, it doesn’t seem like we have to wait very long to find out.

      The first iPhone was released in 2007, meaning that for the past decade, smart phones have been basically the same. Bezels have shrunk, hardware and software features have been updated, metal and aluminum casings have transitioned to glass… but the basic look of a smart phone has remained stagnant.
      Rumors of a “bendable” Samsung phone have already hit the internet, and now news of a new kind of flip phone from ZTE has come out. ZTE, a Chinese manufacturer, has announced the Axon M, which, instead of folding in like most traditional flip phones, folds out to reveal a second touch screen. In essence, it will turn your 5.2-inch Android smartphone into an impressive 6.75-inch tablet.
      Exciting.
      Because this is not a common feature in most Android phones, not all apps will work perfectly. Android already supports split screen in a number of apps like Google Docs, Photos, Chrome, Maps, Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, and Pandora, but for others, the experience will be less optimized.
      Because the phone flips back and forth, there’s no need for a front- and rear-facing camera. Instead, you get one 20 megapixel camera that can be used as both! It also comes with 64GB of storage (expandable up to 256GB) and 4GB of RAM running on top of a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Perhaps best of all, it still features a headphone jack; a fingerprint sensor is also built in.
      In the next month, AT&T customers will be able to get the ZTE Axon M for $24.17 per month for 30 months on AT&T Next.

      On Saturday 7th September we stepped through the doors of one of London’s newest & biggest clubs as Printworks re-opened for its second musical session.
      As we approached the venue we began to question whether we were at the right location as we were ushered past a disbanded security checkpoint, down a private road and into a large industrial estate. The scale of the club only became apparent as the building came into view and we headed inside through a giant loading bay. It was about this time that everyone in our party was grinning, excited to get inside, explore and enjoy some seriously amazing techno in what was clearly going to be an incredible and unique space.

      Security was a breeze; we were welcomed with friendly faces and were inside with a drink in hand, dancing to Mind Against in less than 10 minutes. The scale of Room One is incomprehensible when you are stood in the crowd. The long narrow expanse of the main room, with its overlooking mezzanine balconies supporting an extensive and jaw-dropping array of lights and lasers, is breathtaking. The gritty, industrial feel of this ex-newspaper printing factory is the perfect place for a party.

      Located just at the rear of the expanse of Room One, clubbers will find the slightly more intimate Room Two. It was in here that we caught energetic sets from Fort Romeau and Architectural and it’s where you’ll want to head if the scale of Room One triggers your agoraphobia.
      Daniel Avery delivered a monstrous set in the main room, drawing in the crowds and shaking the fabric of the building, setting things up for techno heavyweight Rødhåd to take over. Having missed various opportunities to catch this infamous Berliner play, we embedded ourselves deep within the crowd and soaked up the raw, industrial sounds that were so, so apt for this venue and reminded us of our time partying in the depths of Berlin’s Berghain. Not many DJ’s could successfully follow up and maintain the crowd’s focus, but then not every DJ is Maceo Plex. Plex took the helm for the last two hours and took us on a musical journey with a beautifully curated set of warm, ethereal and melancholic sounds, complemented with energetic and euphoric techno cuts. It was perfect and the crowd went wild.

      With LWE at the helm, it’s no surprise that the events lined up for Issue 002 are some of the hottest on the London clubbing calendar. The rest of the season will host revered nights such as The Hydra, Afterlife, Paradise and Bugged Out and the likes of Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing, Âme, Bicep and Tale of Us will bring the 6,000 capacity venue to life
      The opening of Issue 002 certainly set the bar high for the rest of the season and we’ve no doubt that Printworks will deliver another stunning series of events and once again cement itself as London’s hottest new venue.
      Get your tickets for the rest of Issue 002 HERE.
