These are 10 hype-building songs to listen to ahead for Moonrise Festival 2018Moonrise

Moonrise Festival 2018 is shaping out to be one of Baltimore’s most exciting events of the year. The two-day festival — held at the Pimlico Race Course – is preparing for its 5th installment, which will feature a wide and diverse range of artists, catering toward fans of almost any dance music sub-genre. Performers include Kaskade, Zeds Dead, 3LAU, JOYRYDE, Ookay, GRiZ, Illenium, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Ekali, MK, and more.

In honor of the upcoming festivities, we’ve compiled a 10-track playlist that includes tunes from some of the weekend’s most anticipated acts — perfect for any pre-game or long road-trips to Baltimore.

1. Silk City (Diplo & Mark Ronson) – “Only Can Get Better”

The latest single from Diplo & Mark Ronson’s newest side project Silk City. This is definitely a collaboration attendees will hear during Diplo’s headline set at the Stellar Stage Saturday night. Ronson has since teased their second upcoming release, so maybe he’ll give fans a little taste at the festival?

2. DJ Snake & Mercer – “Let’s Get Ill”

One of DJ Snake’s hottest 2018 collaborations saw linking up with Mercer for a rapid, future house heater. Check out Snake headlining the Stellar Stage Saturday night alongside Kaskade, Diplo, Zeds Dead, and more.

3. Marshmello – “Rooftops”

Marshmello recently released his Joytime II album, which has been very well-received by the Mello Gang. “Rooftops” a groovy one from the album where the DJ/producer throws on his own 90’s punk rock-sounding vocals. He’ll take the Stellar Stage Sunday night and will likely close out the weekend.

4. SNRBN – “If I Can’t Have You” feat. Harloe

The LA-based DJ/producer, who will also be taking over the Stellar Stage on Sunday afternoon, where he will more than likely take his audience out of the racetrack an instead place them on a mental beach. His latest single “I Can’t Have You” accomplishes this feat in mere minutes.

5. Two Friends – “While We’re Dreaming” feat. Kevin Writer

We enjoy this 2017 throwback from the duo, who will be treating their guests to a heavy dose of their cheery brand of dance music.

6. Galantis – “Mama Look At Me Now”

“Mama Look At Me Now” is one of two tracks from Galantis’ latest EP release, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the mischevious Swedes’ infectiously raucous Sunday set.

7. Cashmere Cat, Major Lazer, Tory Lanez – “Miss You” (Akira Akira & Hikeii Remix)

This is one of the most poppin’ remixes of his hit collaboration “Miss You” with Major Lazer and Tory Lanez. Festival goers can expect to hear either the original or an assortment of remixes, yet knowing Cashmere Cat, he often has a strictly Jersey club section of the set, to which this fits perfectly. Check out his set at the Lunar Stage on Sunday.

8. Rezz & 1788-L – H E X

Rezz is blowing up the scene with dark synths and heavy beats that are nothing short of an innovative sound. Check out her latest release, which she’ll most likely use to destroy the Solar Tent atmosphere on Saturday.

9. Chris Lake, Chris Lorenzo, Anti-Up – “Pizza”

Anyone want pizza? No? How about after a few hours of constant movement and house beats at the Celestial Stage? Chris Lake will be headlining the house-geared stage Saturday night and will probably trap listeners into his set right as they’re deciding to leave for some pizza.

10. Eric Prydz – “Liberate” (Lane 8 Remix)

This remix for Eric Prydz’ “Liberate” is one of Lane 8’s hidden gems released back in 2014. He’s pushed out a lot of new music since then, but it doesn’t mean we have to stop showing this perfect blend of deep and melodic house some love. Check him out headlining the Celestial Stage Sunday night.

Purchase tickets via the Moonrise Festival website and if this song selection didn’t do justice, check out the festival’s 2018 Spotify playlists, which are curated by stage.

Cirez D releases new EP, 'Dare U' [Stream]

2018 is a productive year for Eric Prydz, and causally, a good year to be a fan of the prodigal producer. Not long ago, Prydz treated Pryda listeners to a stimulating and meticulously constructed new EP, Elements. Shortly thereafter, the Swedish phenomenon further exemplified the transcendent quality of his live performances via the debut of HOLO, the latest hologram tech project that Prydz will go on to showcase over a few select dates this year.

Now, the unstoppable momentum of Prydz’s career yields Dare U, duly Prydz’s latest release, and a titillating turn into techno territory  made under the Cirez D alias. The EP follows Prydz’s previous tweet announcing that a Cirez D branded EP was on the way, slated to arrive via Prydz’s Mouseville label.

Christoph returns to Pryda Presents with poignant ‘Voice Of Silence’

This post was originally published on this site

Eric Prydz protégé, Christoph, set up shop under Prydz’s new start-up label, Pryda Presents since its inception mid-2017, as the only artist to release on the imprint. Christoph, known for his smooth, entrancing deep and tech house accents, capped off 2017 with his minimal progressive track, “EPOCH,” with no trailing releases–until now.

Christoph has since reemerged under Pryda Presents with progressive house track, “Voice Of Silence,” a dance floor imperative that is equal parts vigorous and heartrending. Painted with echoing, melancholy lyrics (“splinters in my heart,”), euphoric builds, and low end bass, Christoph leaves the listener torn between tears and transcendent dance fits.

Eric Prydz’s HOLO show is nothing short of awe-inspiring

The famed intricacy of Eric Prydz‘s live production ascends to new heights in HOLO, the latest hologram tech project that Prydz will showcase over a few select dates this year.

Prydz fans in attendance at the June 3 Glasgow event — notably the first show of 2018 that utilized the HOLO tech —got a first look at HOLO and the latest hologram enabled visuals that Prydz has added to the concept. A series of fan videos taken in Glasgow offer those unable to make the performance a sneak peek of what can be expected in the HOLO shows set to unfold this year.

HOLO garnered praise from audience member, Camelphat, who declared the production to be of a caliber unlike anything he’d ever seen before.

Both the videos and the collective fan responses to HOLO seem only to further beg the rhetorical question “is there anything that Prydz can’t do?

Hot off the heels of his recent ‘Elements’ EP, Eric Prydz reveals new Cirez D EP is imminent

This post was originally published on this site

How Eric Prydz successfully manages four separate monikers and his wildly innovative EPIC and HOLO tours is truly a wonder. Only a week after the release of his Elements EP under his Pryda banner, the Swedish electronic mastermind  has announced the project is next in his queue: an impending Cirez D EP.

Commonly pinned as Prydz’s darker, cerebral alias, the project’s instantly recognizable Mouseville graphic cropped up in a recent post from Prydz on social media, captioned with no room for speculation, setting fans into a frenzy. Speculation surrounding the new release already points to unidentified new sonics weaved into Prydz Ultra 2018 performance, though an official track list has yet to surface. Release details are sparse at this time, though considering momentum is still high from the recent delivery of Elements, new Cirez D is imminent.

Eric Prydz astounds on new Pryda EP, ‘Elements’

Pryda is back in his element.

After sharing the news that a four-track Pryda EP was imminent, Eric Prydz delivered a 17-minute Pryda mini mix at the end of the 580th episode of Tiësto‘s Club Life radio show, seizing the opportunity to offer fans a preview of what the then untitled EP would sound like.

Titled Elements, the new EP is Pryda’s first release of 2018. Meticulously constructed, the four tracks that makeup the production—“Elements,” “Obsessive Progressive,” “The HoaX,” and “Project L.O.V.E.”—are at once stimulating and indulgently dark in intonation, in true Pryda fashion.

Eric Prydz drops secret new Cirez D edit of ‘Directions’ via Tiga’s Turbo label

Cirez D

Despite Eric Prydz having just buckled down in the studio for a forthcoming Pryda EP,  somehow the producer’s still found time to explore his darker alias, Cirez D.

His latest cut is a brooding extension of an anonymous producer from Belgium named BETON, whose track “Directions” was signed to Tiga’s Turbo Recordings.“Everywhere I played it, people asked what it was,” Tiga said about the original. “Recently, after having posted a clip of it online, an old friend by the name of Eric Prydz aka Cirez D asked me what it was and if he could have it.”

Prydz has embued a high-octane edit on “Directions” that manages to amplify BETON’s choice production with its deeply tumultuous Prydz-fashion.

“We toyed with the idea of keeping it as a top-secret weapon for personal use, but decided to share it with the world instead.”
