Ultra Music Festival (UMF) has proven its RESISTANCE brand to be a well-oiled industrial machine that unceasingly manufactures some of the finest house and techno lineups in the modern festival circuit. The revelations of its 2019 lineup continues this process. For its 2019 edition, Ultra Miami will present the RESISTANCE concept in an unprecedented manner, devoting a considerable portion of the Virginia Key festival grounds to what UMF organizers have newly dubbed “RESISTANCE island.”

Given the artists who grace Ultra Miami’s 2019 RESISTANCE lineup, “island” is indeed an apt descriptor. UMF crafts an underground paradise of electronic sorts via live sets from Maceo Plex, Black Coffee, Sasha | John Digweed, Richie Hawtin, and Charlotte de Witte. Adam Beyer and Cirez D will link up for another installment in their mythical back-to-back format series. Eric Prydz, however, won’t be the only producer appearing under an alias–deadmau5 notably figures among the RESISTANCE lineup as Testpilot. deadmau5′ Testpilot set flanks his headlining set as deadmau5. The mau5trap label head’s headlining set that will be the platform of deadmau5’s worldwide debut of his Cube 3.0.

In the midst of RESISTANCE’s luster gleams a back-to-back Carl Cox set. Ultra maintains the mystery for now, as festival organizers currently conceal of the name of Cox’s back-to-back partner behind the decks, which Ultra will expectedly declare at a later date. Ultra Music Festival will record its inaugural edition at its new home of Virginia Key from March 29-31.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018Skrille 1

Paring down an entire year’s worth of songs is no easy feat.

2018 saw the explosion of songs like ZEDD‘s “The Middle” and Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” dominating both the dance music charts and the radio airwaves. Ear-catching tracks like these, along with fan favorites like FISHER‘s persuasive “Losing It” and Anti Up‘s entertaining “Pizza” wiggled their way into festival sets around the world and — love them or hate them — stood out as notable tracks that do their part in immortalizing this whirlwind of a year.

We also saw a creative collective of remixes surface in 2018, including Rinzen‘s compelling take on deadmau5 and Rob Swire‘s hit “Monophobia” and Skrillex‘s intoxicating rendition of Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode.” We celebrated the return of Gesaffelstein with “Reset” and welcomed new projects from Diplo in LSD and Silk City. We welcomed collaborations from Ekali, Medasin, and Elohim in “Forever,” Tiësto, Dzeko, Post Malone, and Preme in platinum smash hit “Jackie Chan,” and ZHU and Tame Impala in “My Life.”

Ultimately, though, we’ve narrowed 2018 down to 30 tracks that stole our hearts and smashed streaming records.

Watch Cirez D and Adam Beyer play three hours of proper techno from a Brooklyn warehouse

Watch Cirez D and Adam Beyer play three hours of proper techno from a Brooklyn warehouseAdam Beyer Cirez D

When Cirez D and Adam Beyer unveiled four back-to-back performance dates in August, the artists announced their intent to use the collaborative format of the then-upcoming shows as a means to “push the boundaries of how techno can be presented.” Cirez D and Adam Beyer went on to collectively deliver a transcendent and forward-thinking underground experience across their four back-to-back bookings, the caliber of which was due in part to the expertise of the technical team behind the sets’ production. The very same crew that orchestrates Eric Prydz‘s groundbreaking series of EPIC shows headed the production of each of the back-to-back events.

The bi-coastal initiative took Eric Prydz — who appeared under his dark, industrial techno alias, Cirez D — and Adam Beyer to Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium from November 23-24. Not long thereafter, the duo headed east to stop by a Brooklyn warehouse between November 30 and December 1. Fortunately, those who did not have the opportunity to experience Cirez D and Adam Beyer’s synergy won’t be forever bereft of the chance, thanks to a video that has since been uploaded to YouTube. The fan-captured footage spans Cirez D and Adam Beyer’s three-hour, December 1 set in its entirety.

There’s no better time than Friday to get lost in some techno. One devoted fan of Eric Prydz‘s alter ego Cirez D and Drumcode boss Adam Beyer has promptly delivered just that. The two had a one-of-a-kind performance at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on November 23, going back-to-back for three hours of blinding production and dark tunes. The venue even extended its hours until 4 a.m. for the appearance.

The YouTube user’s steady hand captures perfectly the energy in the room, and, of course, the top-notch light work and mixing from the pair as they slowly build the energy in the room to its maximum energy.

Cirez D and Adam Beyer will be going b2b again this weekend in New York City.

Premiere: Pig&Dan – Pushing On

Premiere: Pig&Dan – Pushing OnDC195 Artwork

The fall season approaches for 2018, which means that it’s time for Drumcode to release its annual A-sides compilation. In its seventh edition, Adam Beyer has gathered the usual array of longtime colleagues and inspiring newcomers to contribute a firestarter of their own to the collection. Many of the songs featured on the series throughout the past are often rinsed as IDs in the label boss’ sets throughout the year, making the compilation one that is continually high on followers’ radars.

Per usual, Drumcode powerplayers and Elevate owners Pig&Dan gladly accepted the request to donate a track to 2018’s A-sides. It comes in the form of “Pushing On,” a percussive number that fits their brooding aesthetic. It rumbles through a warpath of pungent kicks and bass until it reaches its soaring breakdown. While Pig&Dan bring some relief in the form of soaring synth melodies, they quickly pull a switch in tone to drag the listener right back down into the underworld with wild roars and a pulsating climax. “Pushing On” will be released on September 10, along with the rest of the A-sides compilation.
