Already racking considerable brownie points on the North American club circuit, Dim Mak boss man Steve Aoki and Chris Lake unite with German breakout Tujamo to unleash a three-way collaboration for Ultra Music. Dropping amid a surge of anticipation for Lake’s impending debut album for Ultra later this year, “Boneless” is a raw electro anthem as indicative of Aoki’s playful demeanor as it is the versatile peak time get-up that his British peer has coined throughout 2013. With Tujamo on the trail, the rising European hopeful gets a more than worthy welcome alongside two of the industry’s more sought-after artists. Check back for an official preview and release date soon. (more…)Posted by
Global Gathering reveals full 2013 festival line-up, Disclosure, Afrojack and Carl Cox join eclectic line-up
There are two things likely to stir a conversation about Stratford-Upon-Avon, but at this time of year, you can be certain it isn’t Shakespeare. Now eleven years into their annual midland overhaul, Global Gathering returns to Long Marston Airfield July 26th and 27th to unleash another cutting edge line-up from across the dance music spectrum. With day one favoring the likes of British assets Plan B, Disclosure and Rudimental on the main stage, the additions of Ferry Corsten, Nicky Romero, Seth Troxler and James Zabiela open the floodgates to a line-up that collects mainstream favorites and underground legends alike to the unsuspecting airfield.
Led by Example, Afrojack and Steve Aoki on the Saturday, European young-guns Hardwell, Madeon, Arty and Porter Robinson share the day with specially tailored stages from Carl Cox, Toolroom Records, and Jamie Jones’s Paradise concept alike. Boasting enough assorted flavors to whet any self-respecting dance fans appetite for 48-hours, Global looks to bring an Ibiza-worthy line-up that lacks only the guaranteed sunshine.

After teaming up on “No Beef” and showcasing bottles of their drink Afroki in the accompanying music video, Afrojack and Steve Aoki hopped into the studio to bring their beverage to life. The resulting big room blitz was just finished last week and the duo unveiled it to the world at the Kingsday Festival in Amsterdam. Still untitled, the track has both producer’s signature trademarks. Big gritty synths and squealing Dutch stabs work in tandem to create yet another track destined for festival tent dominance.
Listen after the break.
Badlands Stampede Music Festival hits Western Canada boasting lineup including Afrojack, Kaskade, Pretty Lights, Adventure Club and more
While Eastern Canada boasts a wide array of festivals from Escapade to Sensation, Western Canada is quickly gaining traction and establishing itself as a premiere dance music location. After the monstrous success of Northern Lights Music Festival in EDMonton, Calgary is taking the reins by boasting the first ever Badlands: Stampede Music Festival taking place July 5th to July 8th at Canada Olympic Park. The impressive lineup includes Afrojack, Kaskade, Pretty Lights, Steve Aoki, Adventure Club and more, to be powered by 200,000 watts of PK Sound, and have mainstage display modeled after Europe’s biggest festivals. Only one question remains, will you rave in your Stampede gear or leave the boots behind?
Steve Aoki spent plenty of time in the pool with Michael Phelps during Miami Music Week — but remember, he’s not an olympian swimmer. He’s an electronic artist, and his Wonderland single featuring Rob Roy, “Ooh,” has been revisited and repackaged with brand new remixes. Dzeko and Torres steal the spotlight with their rendition, following “Togi” with another production only days after their Ultra debut. Cutting to the core of “Ooh,” the boys deliver a contagious rhythm and satisfy a previously dub-heavy track with the progression needed for dance floors.
