Over the course of the past week, Size Records has been sharing cryptic images that indicate a second annual Size In The Park for New York City. While these tip-offs left little doubt that Steve Angello‘s Central Park event would return, it’s now been confirmed that Size In The Park 2 won’t just be back in the Big Apple, but back for two consecutive nights. Set for Friday, September 27th and Saturday, September 28th, Angello and his supporting cast, along with a re-equipped arsenal of new music, will invade Rumsey Playfield. Tickets will be available on August 9 and more information can be found at sizeinthepark.com.
With the clock winding down on Tomorrowland 2013, Steve Angello took to the Main Stage at 7pm to blow the lid of the volcanic structure. Kicking off his set properly, the only recognizable productions during the first 30 minutes of his set was the classic move to “Knas” along with vocals to lace an onslaught of unreleased music. In tow came his upcoming Matisse & Sadkso collaboration, “SLVR,” along with several festival-ready tunes likely to make way through Size Records. Angello also debuted original productions of his own, including a rumored Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman collaboration that remains unnamed and an anthemic closing track that had the massive crowd in hysteria. Offering his set in full, relive Tomorrowland and gear up for another anthem-filled season from Size.

It’s been a positive year for Dutch breakouts Sick Individuals, furthered by their inauguration to Steve Angello’s recently formed X imprint this month. Off the back of remix duties for Rihanna and David Guetta, their two-track label debut offers a significant change of pace both for label and artists alike. Whilst “Drum Machine” serves up a stripped back tip to the sound of European house music, “Chase” tests the electro house style guide with an array of melodic progressions and big room beats.
Past the golden days of the Hacienda, Manchester’s Warehouse Project has been a solid institution to the North of England and its dotted clubbing legacy. With an open sigh of relief from those further astray from the overstated capital city, Trafford Park Road will once again play host to what has come to stand as the UK’s alternative clubbing season. Launching with an all-star showcase from Axwell, Armand van Helden, Mark Knight and MK on September 27th, the weekly events will run through to New Year’s Day, offering hosted nights from the likes of Steve Angello, Armin Van Buuren, Disclosure, Rudimental, Annie Mac and Richie Hawtin and a host of their industrious peers along the way. With rare and wonderful appearances from Phoenix, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and a 2013 finale from Nile Rogers alongside Hot Chip, there is quite literally something for every possible taste on this year’s jam-packed bill.
Last September Steve Angello and his Size Records battalion capped off New York City’s summer season with a Central Park blow out hailed aptly as Size In The Park. Joined by AN21 & Max Vangeli, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, and Third Party, the evening became one of the most memorable in The Big Apple’s recent history — remembered for its resiliency through rain storms. Progressing into August signs of the event’s return have officially been spotted via Twitter, insinuating another Size Matters party in Central Park this Fall.

Tomorrowland will once again invade Belgium this weekend, marking its ninth chapter with an expected attendance of over 180,00 fans hailing from over 214 nations around the globe. With a lineup vast enough to boast over 400 artists, the pool of headliners alone trump rival events, no single dance music genre is left unacknowledged, and the odds of discovering new talent are in favor of the attendees. Before TomorrowWorld touches down in Atlanta this September, Boom offers a heavenly opportunity for festival-goers — but with endless options come difficult decisions.
Want to visit all 15 stages, see your favorite DJ, experiment with new sounds, all while taking the time to witness sets in full? Navigating Tomorrowland will be no easy task, but one all fans should be excited to attempt — and that’s where DA has you covered. In the midst of an endless sea of talent, here are ten moments you won’t want to miss…

This Saturday, Insomniac’s Electronic Daisy Carnival will make its long anticipated European debut in London. As one of the few cities to host the legendary festival brand outside of North America, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will bring their eccentric live dance experience to the unsuspecting capital city – who’s who line-ups and big-scale productions in tow.
With two of our editors on hand to document their UK debut, these are DA’s top picks for the big day:
Off the heels of a high-profile remix stint for Rihanna and David Guetta, Holland-based duo Sick Individuals are the next act to bless Steve Angello’s recently formed X imprint. Previously found remixing Size label newcomers Qulinez, their two-track offering takes a notably untamed approach to that of their usual heavyset studio artillery. Where “Drum Machine” strips back the canvas to overbearing grooves and minimalistic portion of lead and sample work, “Chase” offers a more mechanical and melodically refined take on the sound of electro house. The culmination of both signals not only an unexpected shade of maturity from the young duo and their rapidly developing sound, but yet another promising twist in the movements of Angello’s new imprint.

For months now, global club land has hotly speculated the 100th release of Steve Angello and his renowned Size Records imprint. A decade strong and basking in the wrath of Angello’s post-SHM spree, Russian duo Mattise & Sadko join the ranks for a definitive celebration of their 100-and-growing roster of definitive house anthems. Premiered by Pete Tong on his Essential Selection radio show and showcased throughout Steve’s global tour dates of late, “SLVR” encapsulates the epic properties we have come to expect from such Angello offerings as “Yeah” and “Lights.” With a strong element of the Russian duo’s hypnotic melodic charm added to the equation, this synth-led record is more than worthy of the centennial Size crown, offering firm reassurance that Steve Angello and his beloved imprint are not resting on any industry laurels just yet. It’ll be available on Beatport on August 12th.
