Rampage to host farewell tour stop from Noisia, Pendulum Trinity reunion, and moreRampage

Perpetually confounding US festival crowds, drum ‘n’ bass is only just launching a forward foray in the states. However, it’s been a cornerstone of the European electronic music market for decades. Gearing up for its 11th year, Belgium’s token drum ‘n’ bass display, Rampage festival has been at the helm of spreading the genre’s good word and cementing its global audience.

The Antwerp affair has some serious selling points for its 2020 installment, landing March 13-14. In addition to hosting a slot on Noisia’s farewell tour, Rampage will see Pendulum’s Trinity alliance (featuring the iconic act’s founding three members, Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and El Hornet) reunite for their first performance outside the UK and their first rendezvous in the last decade. More genre staples like Dirtyphonics, Virtual Riot, Black Sun Empire, and Delta Heavy are also pegged for the 2020 Rampage ticket.

The impending arm of the festival promises next-level audio-visual production to complement its world-class roundup of drum ‘n’ bass firepower. The event will return to Antwerp Sportpaleis, one of Europe’s largest indoor event stops and self-described “rave haven.”

Tickets are available here.

It’s most important day of the week: New Music Friday. With the overwhelming amount of tunes hitting the airwaves today, Dancing Astronaut has you covered with the latest edition of The Hot 25.

After the release of their Lost Souls EP earlier this year, Knife Party have tapped Laidback Luke for a groovy remix of “Death & Desire,” and Jason Ross, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew team up for “One That Got Away.” Wave Racer has released a new single, “This N That” with LunchMoney Lewis, and Martin Garrix links with Dean Lewis for “Used to Love.” Walker & Royce tackle Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco,” and Hot Since 82 takes it one deeper on “Tilted.” Arty lends his spirited hand to Gorgon City and MK’s “There For You,” and Axwell remixes Halsey’s “Graveyard.” Four Tet’s dingbat-riddled moniker unveils new content, and Nicky Romero, Mike Williams, and Amba Shepherd collaborate on “Dynamite.” REZZ and Malaa take no prisoners on “Criminals,” and Golf Clap deliver their iteration of “Let It Go” by Hood Rich and BRUX. NGHTMRE flexes on an interpretation of Habstrakt’s “The One,” and Herobust cranks up the intensity on “Smoke.” Chime keeps the Halloween spirit alive with “Haunted,” and Modestep sound the “Alarm” on their new single.

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.
