On Saturday night DJ Icon and Heavygrinder went through one of a DJ’s worst nightmares. The two artists flew in all the way from the West Coast to play a show in Pittsburgh, but when their driver picked them up, he said the cops busted the party, and the show was cancelled. To clear things up, DJ Icon and Heavygrinder had the driver take them to the venue anyway. When they got there, no one in charge could be found. However, the sound crew told them the promoter “most likely” called the cops so the event would get cancelled, to avoid paying the artists. Since the DJs were only paid their deposit, and not their full fee, they had the driver track down the promoter to get the rest of their money.
When they arrived at what they assumed was the promoter’s house, the driver left the car with a gun in hand to go knock on the door. DJ Icon says it was at this point when she and Heavygrinder grabbed their DJ bags and ran away, fearing for their lives. After a while, they eventually met back up with their driver, and made it safely to their hotels. As of this writing DJ Icon says they still have not heard from the promoter, and it is unlikely that they will get their full booking fee. Heavygrinder has not issued a statement yet, but the full story from DJ Icon is below.

As the 2015 Summer winds down, there is a degree of underlying depression that sets in. We make it habitual in August and early September to watch our once endless summers wade further and further into the next season; we become the victim. Festival season is over, and we all look around and say, "now what?"...As we picture ourselves up against a window with rain streaming down the other side.
Well, let me make your future a little brighter...
For some of us fall means hot cider, the color changing leaves or perhaps combing through endless rows of pumpkins until you find the single one that truly speaks to you like no other future Jack-o'-lantern has.
Truth be told, that all sounds fun and recreational, but let's get to the real light at the end of the tunnel. This light defines a specific group, family or Home of EDM Hearts that basks in the world of uplifting trance. The music community in Philadelphia defines trance music as this said light, especially in this day in age. So we ask you boldly to put down the hot cider, and forget about Jack on your stoop for one night when the light will beat down on Festival Pier at Penns Landing on October 8th for the ultimate experience. This fall will call for extremely special occasions that we cannot wait to continue to share with you, in the Hearts of EDM Philadelphians. How about we start asking ourselves other questions such as, "Armin Van Buuren, anyone?"

On January 23rd, Philly bassheads found themselves rejoicing over a stacked lineup at SoundGarden Hall, including the likes of Nixsin, Infuze & headliner, Point.Blank. The massive night on Spring Garden & Columbus was the second show for the up-and-coming squad Mischief World Productions, whose roots are within the House of Hearts family. Our very personal friend & Baltimore dub-head Nixsin wasted no time setting the mood for the night with his dark and sinister beats washing over the room as fans slowly trickled in.
As the club began to heat up, Infuze took the stage and dove into an hour long assault of bass, dropping bangers such as “Survivors” (Zomboy & MUST DIE!), “Yasuo” (Crowell & Bommer) and the Trollphace & Skrillex remix of Yogi’s “Burial”. Infuze left fans clutching at their backs while continuing their attempts at headbanging for an hour straight, finishing off his set with his well-known remix of the man himself Bassnectar's "Mystery Song."
By the time his set ended, the room full of sweat-covered fans was more than ready for that sinister classic dub sound that is Point.Blank. Matar took the stage to an incredible roar from the packed crowd and proceeded to turn SoundGarden into a headbanger’s paradise, playing out all of his signature hits, throwing in terrifying drop after terrifying drop.
Philly couldn’t get enough as he railed through a rich set of dubstep, drumstep and D&B, turning the cold January night into a steamy packed house full of womping diehard bassheads. The Belgian mastermind dropped originals such as "Head Gone", "Lizard" with EH!DE and his Buygore smash hit "Get Down VIP" as he bobbed around the stage with intense energy. Matar is an extremely friendly and genuine artist; having arrived well before doors and staying until the venue emptied out, it was very clear he was happy to be with us here in Philly. It goes without saying that Point.Blank is a quality act.
As the club let out just after 2AM, House of Hearts and the rest of the fans that came out had nothing but praise for the night’s incredible acts. Mischief World Productions, the team that put all of us under the same roof this Friday night should be proud of themselves for this fantastic dubstep throwdown that brought out a great crowd, great artists and made for great memories.
