Ultra Music Festival and Final Kid have launched UMF TV, a worldwide YouTube channel dedicated to electronic dance music. In an exclusive engagement with YouTube, Ultra Music Festival’s feature-length documentary, “Can U Feel It,” will be available to watch for free starting Sunday, July 15, 2012 — for two weeks only.
“Can U Feel It” is an explosive feature length film capturing the energy and excitement of Ultra Music Festival. Filmed in HD at the unforgettable UMF 2011, “Can U Feel It” provides a viable snapshot of EDM culture today, while portraying a compelling vision of its even bigger future. The movie spotlights the world’s top DJ and electronic music talent, with live set footage featuring Tiesto, David Guetta, Afrojack, Fedde Le Grand and Boys Noize.
A successful world-traveling DJ friend once said that he DJs for free, he gets paid to travel. And while the road-warrior lifestyle of some globetrotting DJs might be a little stressful, it’s surely better than pretty much any other job in the universe. After all, you don’t see too many DJs quitting the gig in order to stay home and open up a fly fishing shop, do you?
There’s no denying that dance music is big business making big money these days. But how much money is really being made and how much of it is ending up in the pockets of the DJs who draw the millions of fans to EDM events around the world? The somewhat questionable website, Celebrity Networth seems to know the answer to what DJs have in the piggybank. And you might be surprised at some of the names towards the top of the highest-valued jocks. Granted, the site gives no information as to where they’re estimates come from, so take this with a grain of salt. But rest assured, these DJs are making more than you for working less — guaranteed.

OK, not really. But we’re really struggling to un-see the image of our favorite minimal techno white guy Richie Hawtin‘s face photoshopped onto 50 Cent’s body in this rather amusing photo gallery done up by the gang at Mixmag (presumably after a full weekend at Fabric.) Or how about Tiesto as, um, Richie Hawtin?
