Electric Forest is pulling out all the stops for their single 2019 edition. The festival recently scaled back their two weekend offering back to their original one weekend format, though organizers were quick to even it out with the delivery of 2019’s lineup. To say next year’s billing is stacked would be an understatement — ODESZA, Kygo, Bassnectar, and Zeds Dead are holding down headlining duties, with festival favorites The String Cheese Incident returning for a three-night run. The under card features a mile-long list of talent headed to Rothbury, Michigan including Claude VonStroke, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, Lettuce, Ekali, Whethan, Gramatik and many more across June 27 – 30.

SLANDER and NGHTMRE are billed for a GUD VIBRATIONS label showcase, with Snails, TOKiMONSTA, The Knocks, and Bloodpop all slated for Electric Forest 2019 as well. Live sets from Gorgon City, Pnuma, and Ookay are expected, along with jam band flavors and a healthy serving of hip-hop from T-Pain. See Electric Forest 2019’s full lineup below.

Transpiring atop Alabama’s sandy beaches, the three-day festival takes place May 17-19. Tickets are on sale Tuesday, Dec 4  with various travel packages already up for grabs.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

This week’s releases are true stunners. After announcing a collaboration with Lights back in July, deadmau5 has finally unveiled “Drama Free” as part of his mau5ville: Level 2 EP. Oliver Heldens throws it back four decades by remixing CHIC‘s 1978 hit “Le Freak,” adding in a pounding bass to accentuate the original’s groovy beat. Bingo Players and Bali Bandits bring the funk with “Body Rock,” and SLANDER and Spag Heddy waste no time setting “Running to You” on fire. Ray Volpe puts his own spin on Ookay‘s “In My Mind,” while Party Favor taps Naïka for the hefty “Blame.” As part of What So Not‘s Not All The Beautiful Things remix package, AC Slater‘s put his signature bass-fueled house spin on the famous “Goh.” Kill Paris has put his own laid-back twist on Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy,” and Ross From Friends thrills with a take on Thundercat‘s “Friend Zone.”

As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday.

Electronic artists have blessed out eardrums once again with heavy-hitting percussive projects, sultry harmonies, catchy melodies, and crisp vocals. Fatboy Slim‘s festival classic, “Praise You,” receives a funky edit from Purple Disco Machine. Hotel Garuda lends his crafty melody-chop work alongside Imad Royal and Kiah Victoria, while Taska Black continues to show why bitbird is bending boundaries in the future bass space. Midnight Kids and Tritonal do what they do best with uplifting atmospheres and infectious melody drops. Former member of Krewella — Kris “Rain Man” Trindl — caresses Vikki Gilmore’s vocals amongst bouncing guitars and driving harmonies on “Take It Closer.” JayKode and ORIENTAL CRAVINGS go hard on their projects for Flux Pavillion & Doctor P‘s Circus Records imprint and a remix of Alison Wonderland‘s single with SLUMBERJACK, “Sometimes Love,” respectively.

World famous streamer Ninja teams up with Astralwerks to create his own album

World famous streamer Ninja teams up with Astralwerks to create his own albumNinjawerks

The fusion of gaming and electronic music is not a new topic, but the two industries are seemingly melding in new ways every other week. Electronic music labels have released labels specific for gamers,  and others have provided streamers with free music to pair with content as long as the audio is cited. What we have not seen much of yet is a gamer creating their own album, and few people have the following and connections to make a project like that actually materialize. Tyler Blevins, ex-Halo pro-turned-streamer named Ninja, is one of the few who does.

Ninja will be releasing an album in partnership with Astralwerks, aptly titled Ninjawerks featuring tracks from acclaimed electronic music artists, who will be soundtracking Ninja’s gaming world. The streamer spoke about the new partnership, saying,

“I’m stoked about this project, first because I truly love the music, but also because I think this is another big step towards bridging the gap between music, artists, and gamers. Our worlds keep getting more and more connected, and this feels like the next step. Hopefully this can become the soundtrack to gaming. It’s also amazing to partner with Astralwerks and Capitol Music Group, because they bring so much credibility to the album. I mean. Come on. Get your ears ready.”

We have seen ESL partner with Universal Music, and Monstercat partner with Rocket League, but the idea of an individual gaming influencer coming out with their own album is new ground. Given Ninja’s documented friendship with EDM superstar Marshmello, the forthcoming Ninjawerks will likely feature his helmeted producer pal. Ninja’s partnership with Astralwerks, puts him in the company of the likes of Illenium, Jonas Blue, and Alison Wonderland in addition to pre-existing ranks with artists like Axwell Λ Ingrosso.

ODESZA announce inaugural Foreign Family Collective festival Sundara, topped by RÜFÜS DU SOL, RL Grime, and more

ODESZA announced earlier this year that they would not return to Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2019, thereby ending a consecutive four-year run of shows at the venue. The news led fans to speculate that the electronic duo could be plotting a momentous event in place of the annual Colorado show, more specifically, a Foreign Family Collective festival. Now, the duo have officially ended the speculation with the announcement of Sundara, set for March 13 – 16, 2019 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The label heads, and now festival organizers, are slated to headline the event, along with Alison Wonderland, RL Grime, and RÜFÜS DU SOL. Supporting talent for the inaugural beach festival includes Bob Moses, Tokimonsta, and Golden Features. Each act featured on Sundara’s debut lineup will play two different, unique sets across the three day event.

ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label claimed an Electric Forest first in 2017 as the imprint hosted its own stage at the Michigan festival, programmed with talent curated from their imprint including Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, and Kasbo. ODESZA enthusiasts reasoned that the launch of a festival-style event would be a logical next step in Foreign Family’s progression, and as ODESZA has confirmed, a Foreign Family festival is now well within fans’ collective ‘line of sight.’

GANZ continues to make it looks “Easy” — pun intended. The Dutch producer has returned to deliver another show-stopping remix, this time of Alison Wonderland‘s “Easy.”

Whether it’s remixing some of dance music’s hottest artists such as Flume and ODESZA or unleashing explosive originals of his own, GANZ’s style is his own. For the past half a decade, the Amsterdam-based producer has proved his ability to break down barriers and genre limits as a whole, combining heavy bass with smooth, sultry vocals.

Alison Wonderland displays her stamp of approval, debuting her radio show, Radio Wonderland, on Sirus XM with GANZ’s flip of her own song, “Want U.”

This remix follows an original called “Slippin’,” featuring CUT_, released in July. Uploading “Easy” to his SoundCloud page, he writes, “Just a new GANZ flip of my bud @alisonwonderland her amazing track ‘Easy’. Hope you guys enjoy it <3.”

Valentino Khan remixed Alison Wonderland‘s “Good Enough” and reshaped the trap original into a higher speed, electro house-inpired heater. With vocal chop melodies and orchestral undertones on the build, the remix quickly picks up and drops into quick gritty bass notes and shuffle-inducing percussion.

After Wonderland’s successful release of her second studio album, Awake, earlier this year, the Australian top-tier DJ has enlisted remix talents for singles “Church” and “Easy.” Now, it’s time for the lead single off her album to get a rework from the Owsla producer. So far in 2018, Khan’s done official remixes for Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” and Diplo, French Montana, and Lil Pump‘s “Welcome to the Party.”

EDC Orlando will descend upon its historic host venue Tinker Field from November 9-10, and as in all past years of production, the Insomniac festival will bring a slew of stars to the Sunshine State.

Alesso, Alison Wonderland, Dillon Francis & Friends, Kaskade, Bassnectar, and more will take to the decks, their performances interspersed among a series of heady back-to-back sets, including 4B, GTA and Valentino Khan sharing the stage, Nicole Moudaber back-to-back with Paco Osuna, and Jamie Jones joining the Martinez Brothers, among others. Tiësto is slated for a special sunset performance, along with appearances from Martin Garrix, Tchami, Pendulum and many more.
