Seismic Dance Event unveils daily lineup, topped by Cirez D and TESTPILOTSeismic Dance Event I O

For the second year, Seismic Dance Event makes its return to Austin, Texas to bless attendees with two days of world-class performances. In September 2018, the inaugural event brought a stellar lineup to the Travis County Exposition Center, including Lane 8, Drezo, Golf Clap, Green Velvet, Sacha Robotti, and more.

In 2019, festival organizers look to build on last year’s success by bringing in headliners Cirez D and TESTPILOT, along with a piping hot array of other artists like Bicep, Idris Elba, Nic Fanciulli, Gorgon City, Nora En Pure, and more.

Now, the festival has revealed its daily lineups, featuring deadmau5’s TESTPILOT alias topping day one and Eric Prydz’s Cirez D moniker at the top of day two at The Statesman. Saturday, Nov. 16 will also feature acts like Chris Lake, i_o, and Rinzen, and Sunday, Nov. 17 will bring performances from Lee Burridge, Gorgon City, Dom Dolla and many more. Along from the dynamic lineup, the festival will also feature live painting and art installations, live performers, totem, and costume contests.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the glowing feedback from our debut year and now with this year’s lineup,” said RealMusic Events & Seismic co-founders Kelly Gray & Andrew Parsons. “Many US festivals tend to have very similar lineups so we really wanted to switch it up and cater to the more seasoned, underground connoisseur – and yes, believe it, in Texas.”

Anti Up raise the stakes with another dance floor dominator, ‘Right Now’

Anti Up raise the stakes with  another dance floor dominator, ‘Right Now’Anti Up

Chris Lake and Chris Lorenzo convene under their collaborative Anti Up alias for a fresh new standalone showing, “Right Now.” The tune is a stirring extension of the distinctive, off-the-wall brand of house music signature to Anti Up, apparent on past productions, as well, such as “Hey Pablo” and the highly lauded “Pizza,” perpetually permeating through club speakers.

Characteristic of Anti Up’s style, a looping vocal comprises much of “Right Now’s” sonic foundation. So, too, does a briskly paced beat that cooly ascends, and a break down that centralizes a crisp, pulsating bass line. Well-poised for regular club rotation, “Right Now” further illustrates the inventive nature of Anti Up’s approach to underground sound as it directs listeners straight to the dance floor.

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED

HOLY SHIP! shares huge lineup for upcoming landlocked edition, HOLY SHIP! WRECKEDRukes III

While HOLY SHIP! won’t be setting sail in 2020, it’ll sure still be getting down. The revered HARD Events maritime festival will anchor itself in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana next year, January 22-26 with a whole new name: HOLY SHIP! WRECKED.

Casting a wide and prominent net, HOLY SHIP! WRECKED has secured Diplo, Lane 8, Claude VonStroke, and Madeon to top its astounding 2020 roster, while Chris Lake, NGHTMRE & Slander, and Jai Wolf comprise what one could hardly call an undercard. Distinguished names from across the house and bass-abundant spectrum speckle the robust roster, from 12th Planet to TOKiMONSTA, Whethan to What So Not, the agenda seems to extend something irrefutable for every electronic taste preference. Up-and-coming contenders like Dom Dolla, Sonny Fodera, and ODESZA-championed MEMBA offer the lineup a fresh-faced appeal as well.

Not only is the lineup set to be one of the most in-depth throughout the HOLY SHIP! timeline, but the shift in format will offer #Shipfam an event that is both excitingly new and refreshingly familiar. Cloud 9 Adventures,the lead company behind the ship experience, has been producing events in concert with the Punta Cana resort for many years already and will bring that expertise to HOLY SHIP! WRECKED .

Just as on HOLY SHIP!, the resort will only be open to attendees throughout the festival. Seasoned Shipfam will still receive their robes as well as their OG party as fans and artists live together for a weekend in paradise:

We are shipfam for life, so we couldn’t miss out on this! – Gorgon City

Time to start the search for buried treasure. We be shipwrecked this year me maties! – Claude VonStroke  

When it comes time for the artists to perform, there will be nine different areas for music spread throughout the resort. With the increased amount of space, the overall production will be at a much higher level and each area will maintain a specific sonic identity. From daily pool parties to a 1,000 person-capacity club to a sunrise set on the beach, artists will be spinning multiple sets in a variety of environments to satisfy the astute tastes of Shipfam.

Plus, the extensive amenities provided both on-site and in the immediate area will allow for a much broader range of artist involved activities which will be announced soon.

Attendees of HOLY SHIP! WRECKED will have 24-hour access to the resort’s private beach. Every room includes its own balcony, hot tub, free Wi-Fi, and is roughly three times the size of rooms on the boat. There are nine restaurants around the resort offering everything from sushi to pizza, and just like on ship, food and drinks (including alcohol) are all-inclusive.

In terms of recreation outside of music, there is mini-golf, a lazy river, a waterslide, and much more on property. For an extra charge, attendees can take their experience to the next level with a full 18-hole golf course, excursions on dune buggies and ATV’s, a 65,000 square-foot spa, scuba diving, and various other activities that only a world-class island resort can offer.

Pre-sale for HOLY SHIP! WRECKED starts next Monday, July 29, and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday, July 31 at 11 am PT, available here, along with general festival information.

Effin flips Chris Lake’s ‘I Want You’ [Stream]

Effin flips Chris Lake’s ‘I Want You’ [Stream]Effin

Those familiar with LA’s Icon Collective know that its alumni have made serious noise in the world of dance music. Jauz, NGHTMRE, and Slander are just a few of the heavyweights who got their start at Icon. Another more understated notch in their roster is Effin, who recently executed an out-of-the-box remix of the Chris Lake classic, “I Want You.”

Lake is an unequivocal staple in the house music domain, and one of the driving leaders in the genre’s global ascension. But one of the reasons he has found such sweeping success is because his music taps into up-to-the-moment sounds and styles and packages them with more classic, subtle nuance. In his explosive rendition, Effin took those subtleties and put them under his serrated microscope lens.

“I Want You” came out on OWSLA in 2017, and because the Skrillex-headed label features cross-genre categories throughout its prolific catalog, its identity pertains more to an all-encompassing energy from a collective vantage point. Effin harnessed the same energy Lake did for dancefloor cut and morphed it into a heavy-hitting bass tune.

Chris Lake puts a dark, moody twist on MK’s ‘Body 2 Body’

Chris Lake puts a dark, moody twist on MK’s ‘Body 2 Body’Chris Lake

MK’s latest release “Body 2 Body” has a full remix package coming on July 5, and it’s hard to envision a producer better equipped to give a taste of what’s to come than dance music maverick, Chris Lake. That’s probably why Lake’s rendition has arrived ahead of the package release.

Lake gives the pop-flavored original a hefty makeover, trimming layers from MK’s catchier single to accentuate the club-ready figure at “Body 2 Body”‘s core. The remix is dark, but that’s not to say that the British house star’s flip doesn’t summon a full spectrum of sound. A throbbing bassline is met halfway by a pitch-rising synth that’s set to carry a dancefloor deep into the night.

This is the first of two Chris Lake >< MK crossovers, as the latter recently revealed to Billboard that an MK twist of a Chris Lake track is in the works. The upcoming release can be found on MK’s label Area 10 as well as Ultra Music and includes remixes from the likes of Meduza, Treasure Fingers, and KC Lights.

Claude VonStroke joins forces with ZDS and KE for “Comments,” and Malaa takes things up a notch with a feisty remix of DJ Snake’s “Savage.” Madeaux links with Dances With White Girls for “Club Demons,” and “Worlds Collide” on Nervo’s latest. Goldroom continues a slew of releases with “I Can Feel It” with Love, Alexa. ShockOne and The Bloody Beetroots take to Monstercat for their new single, “Run,” and Laidback Luke and Mark Bale dance into the weekend with “Party Starter.” Klingande and Stevie Appleton craft an easygoing single in “Sinner,” and Moguai remixes Oliver Heldens’ “Summer Lover.”

Good Morning Mix: Take a face-melting stroll through Wax Motif’s House of Wax #026

Good Morning Mix: Take a face-melting stroll through Wax Motif’s House of Wax #026Wa Motif

In recent years, Australia has proven a bottomless breeding ground for inventive electronic artistry. Flume, Alison Wonderland, What So Not, and Anna Lunoe are just a fun-sized chunk of the abundant Aussie eminence molding and maestroing the electronic space from global vantage points. Wax Motif, however, has flown relatively under the radar until recently, despite wide-reaching support from his counterparts and releases on upper-echelon imprints like Tchami’s CONFESSION, AC Slater’s Night Bass, Tiësto’s Musical Freedom, and Destructo’s All My Friends.

Motif’s House Of Wax SoundCloud mix series sees the “Kush Groove” artist, known for his disco-driven, G-House-drenched strain of four on the floor, compile his quixotic tastes in hour-long segments. In the 26th installment, Motif summons the songs of the hour, with piping hot new offerings from Dog Blood, Fisher, Black Caviar, Chris Lake, UMEK, Eli Brown, Matroda, and Sonny Fodera. Now you know: When the wax starts drippin’, it’s time to wake up and shake it.
