Sasha & Digweed are one of electronic music’s most dynamic and forward-thinking duos. Having first encountered one another at Mansfield club Renaissance, they quickly became the poster boys for '90s electronica music — in the process popularising their preferred genre of choice, progressive house, the world over.
Deadmau5 is enjoying quite an end to 2017. Not content with collaborating with fledgling R&B producers or raising money for children’s hospitals, the Canadian superstar is now adopting his Testpilot show for a special New Year show. Going down at Brooklyn nightclub Depot 52, the event will see the mau5 billed on the same line-up as Dennis Ferrer and Tensnake, two DJs he’s perhaps not as familiar with as his EDM peers. Nonetheless, it should all make for a fascinating spectacle.
NI’s Traktor has been updated to version 2.11.1. It’s been a while since we’ve had an update for the popular DJing software, but Native have finally announced some new features, some of which we’ve seen before. The major re-addition is the ability to colour-code tracks in the browser, which in turn show up on playlists and searches. Given the extra types of tracks Traktor now supports, it makes sense to differentiate between them in the sometimes-overwhelming browser.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
