Self described as "Marilyn Monroe gone bad," Cazzi Opeia makes pop dance music that sizzles.

The Swedish-born DJ and singer/songwriter's stage name comes from the star constellation "Cassiopeia" — the vain but beautiful queen of greek mythology — perfectly describing her dark glam music style. Following her collaboration with legendary K-Pop producer on the club hit, "Batman & Robin," Cazzi Opeia returns with "Rich," a track with pop influences and lilting vocals that still manages to stay true to the artist's EDM roots. Popdust got the chance to talk with Cazzi Opeia and hear about her journey to stardom, what influences her music, and more.

Above & Beyond and Spencer Brown feat. RBBTS - Long Way From Home

EDM powerhouse Above & Beyond was built by producers Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki — three pioneers in the dance music scene. Outside of their own songwriting, the group also runs their own musical production and record label, Anjuna Records. They just broadcast their radio show, ABGT300 (their 750th radio show in total), live from a sold out Asia-World Expo center in Hong Kong, and don't appear to be slowing down any time soon.

Most recently, they dazzled audiences with their album "Common Ground," a chart topper that followed the success of We Are All We Need and Group Therapy. A die hard fan by the name of Anna Kismaric said of the band, "Above & Beyond has the ability to craft music that captivates their listeners both in the club and while listening with their headphones."

The video for Above & Beyond's new collaboration with up-and-coming artist Spencer Brow, 'Long Way From Home,' just dropped, and features the vocals of Anne Kalstrup & Hendrik Burkhard. With its gentle, melancholic wave of undulating melodies, underpinned by the quartet's rounded, dance floor-ready sound, the song touches on the loneliness that many touring artists experience.

Paavo goes on to say, "Both Spencer and myself know all too well what it's like being a touring musician. Filled with totally amazing, high moments, but also lonely moments in hotel rooms far away from home. We'd both been travelling for hours feeling somewhat lost and lonely and ended up spending the day together talking about it all. One thing led to the next, and we found ourselves making a song about it all in a makeshift hotel room studio."

Here is 'Long Way From Home' by Above & Beyond and Spencer Brown feat. Anne Kalstrup & Hendrik Burkhard:
