A new multimedia experience has opened at Yan City.
The new attraction was designed by multimedia company Spinifex Group.
The 45-minute water show features Spinifex’s multimedia rendering of “The Past Meets the Future.”
The content begins on the 250-meter-wide wall of Yan City’s museum, then appears on a unique 100-meter-wide retractable scrim array, floating on a man-made lake.
The content is choreographed to a wide variety of state-of-the-art show effects, including fireworks, water screens, laser and fog machines, and surround sound.
Spinifex’s motion director Matt Lock said: “We decided not to go into a full 3D world, but rather to create the scenes with clever use of 2D motion graphics and matt painting.”
The Yan City attraction features a re-creation of the ancient city that once stood at the site; a museum; a zoo; a “philosophers’ garden” and a theme park.
YancityGurl’s Shadow Medium is out September 9 on Opal Tapes.

For a while now, Downlow’d has been hinting at the gravity of his latest projects, but until today, we hadn’t heard much more than a clip.
Although it may not be Downlow’d’s rumored Flume remix that generated quite the buzz this summer, the genre-illusive producer served up a totally new take on Ellie Goulding’s “Something In The Way You Move” earlier today.
By spotlighting the piano elements and jumping right into a darker house drop, Downlow’d livens up the already euphoric track for a completely different vibe that will definitely turn some heads.
Listen to Downlow’d’s remix of Ellie Goulding’s “Something In The Way You Move” on SoundCloud below!

Buku is back and better than ever with his latest single “Front To Back”. Booming with aggressive percussion and overwhelming bass, “Front To Back” is next level. Buku goes hard, using an explosion of synths to turn this track into a severe banger. Stream and download Buku’s latest below.
There’s no denying that Elysian Records releases tracks from some of the best up-and-comers in bass music, and their recent output suggests they have no intentions of slowing down. Keeping up the trend, the label recruited underground legends sober rob and manitee for their latest release, delivering a massive track that’s as weird and filthy as one could have ever hoped for.
The two start things off with an atmospheric intro which works to establish some dark and heavy vibes from the very first second. A gritty synth and bass line come in shortly after, building up into a wonky drop that is a bit reminiscent of sober rob’s Enlighten EP. A brief piano interlude gives way to a more upbeat-feeling second drop, as sober rob and manitee utilize an assault of random percussion and vocal chops to really showcase their collaborative sound flawlessly; “Jungle Robot” has ‘sober rob and manitee’ written all over it.

Flume‘s world tour, powered by the juggernaut that is his second LP Skin, is rounding into its final three months just as strong as when it kicked off. For fans who missed him, or just want to relive his awe-inspiring live show, the Australian producer is releasing recap videos for various regions of his tour, most recently the West Coast.
Kicking off in Seattle, the video provides glimpses of his stage set up, his heartfelt appreciation for the demand that allowed him to play three shows in the city after initially planning only one, and a cameo from supporting act Mura Masa. The video also reveals an art show inspired by Skin, complete with short musical vignettes created by the producer, and features an endearing glimpse at the producer finding out that his single “Never Be Like You” has gone platinum.
Because Los Angeles can’t have enough awesome beat-makers and because Stones Throw Records will always stable an impressive share of the go-to L.A. beat-makers, it’s time to prepare yourself for MNDSGN’s latest offering, which has a very high probability of being a typically fantastic example of L.A. beat-making.
MNDSGN’s first solo full-length in 2016 is called Bodywash and will be available via Stones Throw September 16. It promises to take hip-hop a little further in the cosmic funk direction with a more prominent inclusion of his own voice — or as MNDSGN explains: “think about a box of crayons for you to draw emotions with.”
You can sample the lead “emotional crayon” now with “Cosmic Perspective.”

Following Alexander Lewis‘s recent leap into the trombone-filled world of live instrument trap music, he and KRNE have teamed up to release a collaborative track in the same vein, “Fall Apart.” Ever since his flip of Mr. Carmack’s “Pay For What,” Lewis has begun a deadly trend without the beat scene, demolishing audiences with his live brass playing and powerful percussion. Now, he and KRNE have added to the roster with another true heater.
The song begins with distant horns and swirling white noise, before gentle piano phrases and vocal cuts take over the space. A swell of claps and snares leads upwards towards the build, eventually releasing into a completely overwhelming arrangement of trombone and sub bass. Following the formula of his last two songs, Lewis goes as big as he can with the brass, resulting in an instantly danceable and heavy production.
