Hello amazing people! Welcome to the Daily Round-Up, redOrbit’s one and only destination for all of the latest and greatest music news of the day. Let’s get to business.
Superstar producer Tiesto was rushed to a hospital just before he was set to go on stage at the Electric Beach House Event at the SAP Center in San Jose, California.

Fresh off the surprise release of his new record Recess, Skrillex sat down this week with Billboard Music to discuss his plans for the New Year. Other topics include an inspirational run-in with Kanye West, dreams for the future, and an in-depth look at how Skrillex operates. You can read the full article for yourself back at Billboard.
Skrillex has been all over the place on his promotional tour for Recess. At the same time as spoke to Billboard, Skrillex also participated in an interview for the good people over at NPR Music. You can listen to his insightful talk with NPR host Arun Rath back at NPR.
Lady Gaga debuted the new music video for her song G.U.Y. this week on NBC, and it has since set the internet ablaze. This is just the latest step in the elaborate social experiment that is Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP. It seems like no one really knows what she’s up to yet. Maybe that’s the point. Check out the ARTPOP Film for yourself back at Consequence of Sound.

Billy Joel is in the midst of a sold out residency at New York’s Madison Square Garden. This week he surprised audiences the world over by bringing out AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson on stage to help him perform the song You Shook Me All Night Long.
