As Skrillex spends the rest of the year finishing up his new music, the beginning of 2014 will see Sonny Moore embark on a new Takeovers tour, hitting San Francisco, Brooklyn, Amsterdam and Barcelona for a total of twenty one shows. As part of his Takeovers concept, Moore will play multiple back-to-back shows in each city, performing from a different venue each night. San Francisco has the biggest lineup of performances thus far with seven shows listed, yet each city boasts at least four nights with the beloved OWSLA champion. Head to Skrillex’s website to purchase presale tickets, and find dates and locations below.
Los Angeles based Tigran Mkhitaryan, more commonly known as Mimosa, recently let loose news that he would be embarking on an United States tour, entitled the Event Horizon Tour 2013. The month-long venture kicked off in Wilmington, North Carolina, and concludes, in Denver, Colorado, as the self-defined “Future Trill” artist plans to craft the type of electrifying set that earned him a spot on SPIN‘s list for the “Top 10 Acts at Bonnaroo of 2012.” Mimosa is no stranger to large-scale performances, and experience under his belt from a number of impressive festivals, including the Northern Californian escapist festival known as Coachella, and the ever stunning Bayfront Park in Miami for Ultra Music Festival, certainly show that Tigran has developed a unique performance style that has both promoters and fans begging for more. Tickets are on sale now via Mimosa’s site.
Appropriately, Mimosa also released a brand new track to coincide with the beginning of his tour, appropriately titled “Event Horizon.” The track begins gently with a simple drum pattern that does absolutely nothing to prepare the listener for the bass that will make trap fans around the world throw their elbows up. Showing off stylistic differences in his music, Mimosa also plays a juggling game with the drum line to create a section of the song that feels far and away from trap, proving to the listener that the multi-talented Tigran’s latest release is more than worth the free download.

Hiding behind a mask of mystery, the French Express label has received mass critical acclaim for a unique juxtaposition of quality Deep House and Indie Dance releases from prestigious house producers Perseus and Jonas Rathsman.

US fans continuously desire for the true Scandinavian club sounds of label-mates Moon Boots and Isaac Tichauer to be brought to their hometowns, and they can finally rejoice, as French Express has announced a 10-stop US tour featuring the four artists that make the French Express label ever so successful. Though the tour itself will last less than two weeks, fans across the country will have an opportunity to see the spectacle live as the artists give themselves only one day off over the span of their tour.

While Pryda Friends began as an outlet for Eric Prydz to release his music, the label has since evolved into a platform of burgeoning talent.
