As the opening notes of “everything matters (when it comes to you)” started to drift into the crowd, thousands of fans who’d gathered to hear San Holo perform his album1 show lit up with excitement.

The June 13 performance was the artist’s first headlining gig at the storied venue, and he brought along friends like Shallou and Chet Porter to share in the experience. The bitbird label head performed his album1 LP in full during his set, taking his audience on a journey through fan favorites like “lift me from the ground” and “worthy.”

In the video’s description, the producer refers to his set as “vibrant,” and rightly so. Those who cherished album1 upon its September 2018 release and continue to do so will appreciate this glowing live rendition of the album’s 12 tracks. View the performance in full below.

Good Morning Mix: Lane 8 kicks off sunnier times with Summer MixtapeSummer Mitape 2019 Lane 8

June has officially arrived, which means it’s time for the next installment of Lane 8‘s seasonal Mixtape series. The progressive wizard’s latest seasonal offering delivers just the spot of summery bliss needed to start the day; clocking in at three hours, 40 minutes, listeners are taken on a journey through various new and unreleased cuts of the silky, melodic variety with plenty of peaks and valleys to maintain intrigue through the ride. It ends on a sensual note, with a brand new Yotto collaboration wrapping the mind in vibrant synths and alluring melodies.

The Summer Mixtape comes at the heels of Lane 8’s return to his old home of Anjunadeep, where he released a pleasant two-piece EP, Anthracite. Its title track was a particularly notable collaboration with Tinlicker. He also released a remix EP to his recent hit “Visions,” which included a remix by talented up-and-comer Rinzen.

Good Morning Mix: REZZ’s supernatural set at EDC Las Vegas 2019DA WM 93

REZZ put her transcontinental cult (and undoubtedly a few unsuspecting victims) in a beautifully bemused trance this past May at the annual Las Vegas installment of Electric Daisy Carnival.

This particular witching hour is full of unearthly surprises, like warped bludgeons of wonky, free-form bass, titillating transitions (see Linkin Park “One Step Closer” into “Alien,” near the midpoint) even a nasty dose of drumstep. And you can bet your bottom dollar it’s a real REZZ riot when you hear the crowd sing along to the lyric-less, diabolical bass rhythm of “Edge.”

REZZ also took the opportunity to invite Underoath drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie, whom she’s formerly expressed interest in working with, onstage to perform their forthcoming collaborative track, “Falling.” The unreleased song appears on the official tracklist for REZZ’s impending EP, Beyond The Senses.

Encompassing tracks from both Anjuna artists and the beloved trance act themselves, Vol. 14 melds the poignant styles of both imprints Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep into one ephemeral listening experience that not only testifies to Above & Beyond’s curation abilities, but also exemplifies the diversity of talent harbored within the imprint’s roster.

With selections bursting with nuances in production, pace, and soundscape, Vol. 14 features Anjuna favorites like Spencer Brown, Andrew Bayer, Sunny Lax, Jason Ross, and more, while simultaneously highlighting new remixes and updated mixes.

Good Morning Mix: rinsing Daft Punk’s iconic Coachella set ‘One More Time’Daft Punk Live Coachella 2006 No Credit Found

Coachella Weekend One is nearing its commencement date of April 12. Without fail, the incoming festivities always give a welcome excuse to visit one of the most historic performances at the festival, and possibly the world: Daft Punk at the main stage in 2006. It’s impossible to forget the stunning and groundbreaking pyramid setup used at the time to manifest their multicolored reality, nor the medley of their biggest hits and other gems that were so expertly mixed together in conjunction with the visuals. The performance would also be one of the elusive French duo’s last ever, as they notably haven’t taken to the road since they wrapped up their subsequent 2007 tour.

Without further ado, it’s time to revisit this iconic showing in video form—albeit, a bit on the grainy side.

Good Morning Mix: Stream ZHU’s climactic Lollapalooza Argentina setZhu

ZHU recently stopped by Lollapalooza Argentina to spin his signature brand of dark sonic magic. A tantalizing blend of catalog staples and newer releases alike, ZHU’s set opens with the producer’s breathy live rendition of ZHU classic, “In The Morning.” ZHU glides from one track to the next, with an atmospheric fluidity aided offset by the texture of the live instrumentation that guides the performance. Rugged guitar riffs provide contrast to the smooth tone of a saxophone, while rhythmic synth work lends a punchy sultriness to the showing.

ZHU’s set indulges the electronic envelope pusher’s shadowy mystique in its early inclusion cuts from his Ringo’s Desert saga, like “Desert Woman,” and “Save Me.” The idiosyncratic, crepuscular groove characteristic of ZHU’s sound grows increasingly potent as the set progresses, with Just A Gent‘s remix of ZHU’s own “Superfriends,” and a deep flip of “Working For It.” ZHU effortlessly interweaves sonic sleekness with more gritty trappings, the tail-end of the set a heavy hitting finale to the refined affair.

Sweater Beats checked off the bucket list in performing a recent DJ set at Emo Nite in Los Angeles. The Big Beat Records signee indicated in a Facebook post that he started his music career by playing for pop-punk/emo bands in high school. In the same post from February, fans get a Sum 41 beat flip, kicking off a wave of nostalgia for the LA-based producer.

Now, he’s perfectly blended humble beginnings with his current status as an electronic artist with this 33-minute mix from Emo Nite in LA. In addition to some familiar remixes, the mix is stacked with flipped classics and mashups by the producer himself, all representing the pop-punk/emo era of the ’90s and early ’00s. Listeners will hear edits of “Swing Swing Swing” by The All-American Rejects, Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” a Smashing Pumpkins joint “smashed” with a k?d drop, Fall Out Boy‘s “Sugar We’re Going Down,” and more.

In the mix’s description, the artist said he “got to live out a dream” by playing at Emo Nite. “I spent a lot of time finding/making acapellas for a lot of my fav emo & pop-punk songs so I could make custom remixes and edits,” he notes in the description. “The set was probably the most honest set I’ve ever played, a real mixture of my luv for emo & electronic music.”

Good Morning Mix: Major Lazer make Brazil-centric Carnaval mixMajor Lazer Carnaval Mi

Carnaval has just begun in Brazil, and to honor the cheerful chaos that ensues, Major Lazer has put together a brand new mix. The tracklist reveals something particularly special: most of its tracks happen to be by local artists from the area. Diplo and his colleague’s continual willingness to showcase underrated talent from outside the states is commendable.

Clocking in at just over an hour, the music selection is diverse and high-charged. Some bachata-inspired beats even make their way into the fold via MC Davi’s “O Verão Esta Chegando.” Bass runs abound, with wild trap drops and rhythmic heaters stimulating the senses. Major Lazer make it easy for listeners to place themselves mentally amid the madness that takes over the country during this time of year.

The internet can always be counted on to capture items that fans want most. Though EDC Mexico has just barely wrapped, recordings of different sets are already popping up in various areas. RL Grime has been included in this mixture of set retrieval, to the joy of bass fans all over; in fact, someone took the liberty of recording the entirety of his set through the Insomniac TV stream.

Clocking in at about an hour, RL’s set is the sonic equivalent of adrenaline. The iconic producer invigorates his crowd with a diverse set that packed in hints of drum ‘n’ bass, future bass, and of course, plenty of trap. As any EDC is quite the occasion for artists involved, RL Grime also dropped a few new IDs as well. Toss on the mix for a jolting, yet welcome start to the day.
