Festival season in the UK has kicked off with Eric Prydz and his HOLO show at Steel Yard, London. The Swedish maestro has brought the most technologically advanced live performance for another successful show.

We’re still working on a full video of the night but, in the meanwhile, you can enjoy the following stunning videos.

With a 3D system of lights and lasers headed by the famous led cage in the front, Steel Yard London has been turned into a futuristic environment.

Several lines made by 6 square pannels hanged to the roof and filled with light beams could move to create a real feel of a 3D stage. On the front, 6 massive lasers were on the side of the massive led wall cage where the holograms come to life.

This massive work of design, mapping, and configuration of the entire structure and show has delivered a unique experience.

We Are FSTVL experienced a huge issue in managing the queues at the entrance resulting in multiple hours of waiting, rushing through the gates and people injured.

The festival took over this weekend in East London with a lineup packed of big names such as Camephat and more. Because the festival was cashless, attendees had to retire a contactless wristband at the gate to be able to buy anything inside the festival ground.

According to people in the crowd, the festival run out of wristband creating an insane amount of people stranded at festival gates. The festival organization did nothing to improve the situation.

Lewis Mitchell, 26, shared images of his legs cut and bruised after he was hurt in the crush.

“As we were about five [people] from the front to be searched, a huge push from the back caused everyone to cause a stampede, I tried to help a girl on the floor and ended up being pushed into a wooden table then stomped on all over leading to these injuries.”

“All I could see was a crowd of people treading on my legs.”

When Dixon and Rockstar Games announced a collaborative residency at Pacha Ibiza this next Summer season, fans started wondering what the videogames giant could have brought into the already mystical musical experience that Steffen Berkhahn always provides. The first of twenty ‘Transmoderna’ shows kicked off yesterday, May 24th, and part of the bossman’s set has been streamed on Facebook, giving us the opportunity to have a look at one of the most hyped residencies of this Summer on the Isla. Acting as support were Innervisions‘ finest Trikk and ÂME (Kristian Beyer), and PVBLIC XCESS.

The show mainly focuses on a mix of rendered visuals provided by Rockstar and live performances, with dancers as protagonists. An impressive 3D model of Dixon made his appearance afterward, creating a unique atmosphere in the full-packed Pacha, with the help of lasers, strobe lights and mirrors, while a suspended abstract sculpture dominates the room.

Installment inside Pacha Ibiza for Dixon’s brand new party Transmoderna

The feedback that we got while watching the live stream, however, was different from what the crowd experienced on the dancefloor; we got a film direction and extra technology, in the form of a thermal camera, morphing technologies, a 3D analyzing camera, and more. This is where you can feel the presence of Rockstar behind the scenes, in creating an experience between real life and virtual reality, which is the aim heralded from the very beginning.

Music-wise, there’s really few to say: Dixon’s sets are always an assuredness. Blending together everything from Melodic House, Techno, Afro House, to MidTempo and DnB, the German maestro delivered a variegated, yet univocal and tidy performance, filled with plenty of juicy IDs as usual.

The next event is set for the 31st of May with Solomun as a special guest. Tickets available here.

The Dutch duo Magnificence continues to set the rules on the electronic scene with yet another release. This time is a 4-track EP called II, released by Axwell’s Axtone last Friday.

It’s not a mystery that Magnificence is conquering the most important festival’s stages delivering probably the freshest and unique vibes out there. Their music receives several plays by Swedish House Mafia during their reunion shows as well as on the most important festival’s dancefloors.

II, as the name suggests, is the 2nd EP by Magnificence. It follows the massive success of last year Magnificence EP. It features brand new music as well as already famous releases.

The II EP

Kicking off with Lights with Goja, the tune was first released back at the beginning of this year. The incredible mix between Magnificence signature sound made by glitched hard-hitting groovy percussions and Goja hard-vision of electronic music has brought the sound to an extra dimension. Lights features a fresh visual aesthetic followed across the individual singles.

Control is the second tune of II EP. Released only a month ago it has already overcome the 110k plays only on Spotify. With the BPM increased to full throttle once more, Control is sure to see Magnificence dominating peak time, mainstage sets this summer. The track is easily recognizable from Axwell / Ingrosso’s 2018 Creamfields video.

With the third record, we enter into the brand new part of Magnificence II EP. Containing signature futuristic sound design and fierce beats, Remember follows the main EP’s patch adding a new layer of sounds. The breakdown, with its mystical melodic lines, is enriched by deep kicks that guide the listeners into pre-drop crescendo. It’s easy to say that Remember is The track of the EP; we’re going to hear very often along all the festival season.

Magnificence - Remember - YouTube

Last but not least, Encore is Magnificence II EP bonus track. It shows the softer side of the duo, deeper and darker; featuring an angelic vocal leaned on relaxing and mysterious melodic lines, Encore introduces a rolling melody rhythm. Expect a completely different experience suspended into a mystical environment.

Magnificence II EP final considerations

Magnificence II EP is a journey inside the electronic music soul. From hard-hitting and fast beats to the relaxing and chill vibes of the final track, the whole EP is another proof of the dynamicity that has brought Magnificence at the cutting edge of electronic music.

Lights, Control, Remember and Encore are now available via Magnificence II EP on Axtone. All the four tracks are paired with a custom-made aesthetic vide that follows the track’s vibes.

Every year Amsterdam Dance Event chose a country in the world focusing on its dance music industry in general. Last year ADE has welcomed South Korea, bringing the focus on the dynamicity and evolving of dance music in the country. This year France will have the honor, with multiple events and talks focused on the argument.

France has been one of the most important and influential music territories for decades, and in more recent years a really innovative market when it comes to electronic music and its sub-genres, in both the popular genres and more underground sounds such as electro and hip-hop. On top of that, the French technological scene has been a successful breeding ground for music and culture related start-ups. During ADE we aim to showcase the best of the new players as well as pay homage to the rich culture that France has to offer. – Director Mariana Sanchotene

The ADE Guesthouse to welcome scène in French Electronic Lab

Besides a very variegated range of events, France will get together at ADE Guesthouse. On Thursday, October 17th, De Balie will be transformed into the main HUB. Key players of the French electronic scene gather, to detail and celebrate the renaissance of one of Europe’s house and techno powerhouses. De Balie is hosting a day of workshops, panels, keynotes, and presentations. It will feature France’s most active and relevant players from the interlinked worlds of labels, streaming, publishing, event planning, marketing, and distribution. De Balie is located 200 meters from ADE’s main venue the DeLaMar Theater.

The French Electronic Lab is part of ADE’s 2019 celebration of France and the French scène.

About Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE)

The Amsterdam Dance Event is now the world’s largest club-based festival and most important conference for electronic music. The event continues to grow year by year; the last edition featured over 2,500 artists and 550 speakers in almost 200 venues. The five-day event will run from October 16th through to October 20th. With visitors from over 100 countries, it features every conceivable aspect of electronic music culture. This year are expected more than 400.000 visitors. Extensive day – and night-time art, film, gear, live music, and pop-up programs: these are only a few of the activity that the city of Amsterdam has to offer during ADE.

SoundCloud and Repost Network negotiations are still ongoing. Despite the facts that terms of the deal aren’t public yet, SoundCloud stated that “high-performing, emerging creators” will now have access to Repost Network.

First of all, what’s Repost Network? The platform aims to help artists make a living through their audiences online but, how? The platform lets the artist independently monetize and distribute their music on the major streaming platforms and stores. SoundCloud is one of them.

The acquisition of Repost Network will meaningfully move SoundCloud forward as we build the most comprehensive set of tools to help creators build their careers. We welcome the Repost Network team to SoundCloud and are excited about what we will build together. – Michael Weissman, Chief Operating Officer, SoundCloud

At the moment Repost Network is not for public access. You must submit your application to join it.

Besides monetization on SoundCloud, Repost Network offers also to protect your music via content ID and automatically monetize or take down re-upload. You can also distribute your music to over 25 stores, including Asians ones.

SoundCloud acquires Repost Network distribution company and continues to expand its partnerships in the music industry.

SoundCloud started its mission to evolve from a streaming platform to a distribution one month ago. First partnering with media business to clear remixes and mixes on the platform and then, launching its direct monetization system. Only 3 months ago SoundCloud stated that they were ready to release a beta tool to direct distribute music on Spotify, Apple Music and so on from Soundcloud.

Step by step, SoundCloud seems to project itself into the future. Being one of the leading streaming platforms (they’ve surpassed the 200 M tracks on the platform) and the only that let upcoming artists upload their music easily and for free, this upgrade to became a distribution platform also is great news, especially for independent artists and labels.

SoundCloud is also expanding directly into the DJ word. Recently they’ve partnered with the biggest DJ gear companies and DJ software houses. In the near future, you will be able to access the SoundCloud database to mix the music on the platform directly from your console.

Tim Bergling left very clear notes about how he wanted to finish the music. People who worked with Tim on the album came together to finish Avicii’s work and finally deliver TIM album.

It has become important to Avicii’s team to release this new music with a focus on connection. This is why the AVICII Cube campaign was born.

AVICII Cube around the world

AVICII Cubes will be situated in each of six cities around the globe.  When you put your hand on the illuminated screen, the Cube is activated and searches for another active Cube somewhere in the world. When that connection is made, both of you will listen to the same clip from the album.

In a hectic world, we want people to take a quick break from their busy days for a powerful moment of music and connection.

Being one of the most iconic clubs in London – and consequently, in the world -, fabric managed to build a solid network around itself, year after year. Now the brand includes, apart from the club, a blog, a promotion channel, and a freshly established record label, inaugurated with the first installment of the fabric Presents series, whose host was Bonobo.

It is no surprise thus, that a Techno heavyweight like Rune Reilly Kölsch is releasing music via fabric London’s imprint, fabric Worldwide. The track is called ‘AC1609’, and it departs a bit from what the Danish maestro get us used to: this great piece of Melodic / Progressive House, filled with mesmerizing synths that create a sense of dreamy euphoria from the very beginning, is a bit different from the elegant, feel-good Melancholic Techno that has become his world-renowned trademark.

‘AC1609’ anticipates the release of a ten-track album, which will feature new material named after Rune’s flights from his tours, titled ‘fabric presents Kölsch’; it will be available on May 31st, both in digital and vinyl version.
