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.”

Catch Bonobo, TEED, and more at Minimal Effort’s All Hallow’s Eve’s fifth anniversary

It may only be August, but it certainly isn’t too early to start thinking about Halloween plans.

The perennially freaky holiday always aligns with the underground aesthetic, and SoCal already has its first dark and dastardly lineup locked and loaded, compliments of Minimal Effort: All Hallow’s Eve.

Topping the bill for the event’s fifth anniversary is the endlessly talented polymath, Bonobo, hosting his own Outlier stage. Just below is the UK groove machine Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs alongside Machinedrum‘s collaborative project with Jimmy Edgar, JETS, which will serve as a welcomed departure from the expected house and techno roster.

From there, a series of stand-out talents including Prok|Fitch, Fort Romeau, and Enzo Siragusa remain with the promise of additional acts still yet to be announced.

Over the last five years, Minimal Effort has booked some of the most revered DJs on earth for their annual Halloween spectaculars. Boys Noize, Lee Burridge, Anja Schneider, and MK are just a few of the heavyweights who have made appearances on the All Hallow’s front, and considering the party’s host, Underrated Presents, is still free from any conglomerate backing from potentially domineering parent companies like its similarly curated competitors, the event is primed for harrowing and uninhibited Halloween antics.

Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.

Mija takes to Hot Haus Recs for her latest release, the groovy “Sweat It Out.” SG Lewis puts his own spin on a familiar tune, and Alexander Lewis closes his new EP with “Left U on Red.” Rinzen, Marbs, and Evan Casey have teamed up for “Helix,” and Borgore taps Abella Danger for “911.” Cassian gives his own take on Just Kiddin’s “There for You,” and Modestep reveal “Blood” on Disciple. 13 puts an eerie spin on Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy’s “Lift You Up,” and Cristoph and Jem Cooke unveil a clip of “Slowly Burning 2019.” Godlands, JEANIE, and Jelacee hold nothing back on “No Stress,” and Phantoms tap Kate Morgan for “5AM.” Lee Burridge and Lost Desert deliver “Melt,” and Party Favor and EZI strip down their collaboration, “Be Ok,” for an acoustic rendition.

The selection is updated every Lunes (Monday).

All Day I Dream’s world tour coincides with pensive new Essential Mix from Lee Burridge

All Day I Dream’s world tour coincides with pensive new Essential Mix from Lee BurridgeAll Day I Dream 12

The first dates of All Day I Dream‘s world tour have been unveiled, kicking off yet another expansive year for the brand. Twenty-two dates have been announced across six countries so far, with more to be announced in the coming months. Lee Burridge‘s iconic day-into-night parties have become a global staple by now, enamoring international dance fans with dreamy house sounds and crafty décor. LA, London, Moscow, and San Francisco have been announced, in addition to the brand’s return to its residencies in Mykonos and Ibiza.

Just prior to the announcement, Burridge offered a preview of what to expect musically via a brand new Essential Mix; his first since 2016. Introspective, yet whimsical, the two-hour endeavor explores a myriad of new and unreleased records from in and out of the All Day I Dream catalog—including a new work from Lee himself. It epitomizes the sound he’s made into his own over the years.

Double Touch’s ‘Adagio’ bridges the gap between classical and house

Double Touch’s ‘Adagio’ bridges the gap between classical and houseDouble Touch Press Shot

Not much is really known about the enigmatic Double Touch. Formed by Mark Olsen, an ARIA-winning musician who’s kept a fairly low profile until now, and Van-Anh Nguyen, a burgeoning classical crossover pianist, the duo began making music together in 2016 with a classically-minded re-work of Duke Dumont‘s “Ocean Drive.” The project is now fully underway, however, and Double Touch have made a landed on Lee Burridge‘s All Day I Dream imprint via their four-piece Adagio EP.

This pair is one to keep watch on. It’s clear they pay close mind to high production standards, and in carving a niche totally their own within the expanding space of classical/electronica crossover. Their work is lush, melodic, and even a bit mystical, with three of Adagio‘s four tracks evoking desert imagery in the mind. But first—a direct homage to the past with an adaptation of Albinoni’s iconic “Adagio In G Minor” into an ethereal, ambient title opener.

A wistful “Cape Cove” is next, whose Eastern-inspired instrumentation and soft, padded guitar riffs trudge across make believe sand dunes. “Baghdad” carries these motifs into its fold; albeit, in a completely different way. Orchestral strings play a larger role in “Baghdad” as well. The intriguing thing here is that there is a notable lack of piano in both of these tunes. It would appear that Van-Anh’s composition and arrangement expertise came more into play with these tunes, with Olsen serving as the engineer who pieced the finished products together and mixed them into balanced perfection.

Finally, “Piano Sines” appears to be a reference to sonic frequencies wrought by a piano; or in this case, a keyboard or synth. This production plays out with more suspenseful, tense tones, wading through mazes of staccato-fueled harmonies and brooding strings that trap listeners in a gossamer web until finish. Ultimately, each of Adagio’s four productions are class, and make for enchanting listens without crossing into gimmicky territory.

Sunday Morning Medicine Vol 167, with Lane 8, Vincent, RAC, + moreSMM 2400

Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.


Like a lucid dream, Robotaki‘s latest, “Meant To Be,” swirls and struts through the consciousness with its Tame Impala/Daft Punk-esque psychedelia/synth-wave. Start your Sunday on the right side of Robotaki’s ultraviolet fantasy.

Lane 8 introduces some pensive splendor to Virtual Self‘s sweeping smash, “Ghost Voices,” and the result is a rousing, subtly danceable sonic sonnet.

RAC lends furrowing keys and blooming builds to an already-idyllic Giraffage offering. “Maybes” stands for sweet, swimming possibility this Sunday.

From his latest EP, Vincent‘s “I’m No Magician” is the sensual savor we all crave for end-of-weekend dopamine replenishment. Love, Alexa’s pulsing vocal chops and Vincent’s throbbing bass hit like a beckoning Sunday strobe light.

Arriving from Lee Burridge‘s All Day I Dream imprint, Sébastien Léger’s “Rocket To Lee’s Little Cloud” is the quixotic vessel you ordered to deliver from intrusive thoughts of the upcoming work week. With its chugging beat wistful, reverberating synth line, swift escape is imminent.

This year’s venues are set to be announced soon, along with the rest of the festival’s performers, which will debut a menagerie of local Caribbean artistry. The festival will also be introducing a series of daytime parties to keep attendees’ agendas brimming and sun-soaked this year.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary for Fabric, one of London’s premiere nightclubs. In the English capital, Fabric acts as a central hub for dance music, bringing in locals and international fans alike. Those who are following the club’s endeavors may have noticed a recent but brief blackout, as they boarded up the space, repainted, and went dark on social media. In light of the anniversary, Fabric posted the new announcement on their website:

“In 2019 we celebrate our 20th anniversary, and while to many this would present an opportunity to reflect on the past, we see it as an important opportunity to look to the future.”

Looking toward the future includes a loaded schedule for their fabric XX event series, with “20 special parties” to look forward to. Phase one of the series includes techno favorites Lee Burridge, John Digweed, Martinez Brothers, and more, all slated to play extended sets “for up to 10 hours.” Tickets for all fabric XX dates are available on Resident Advisor.

In addition to some new London residents, they’re also launching a quarterly mix series “fabric presents,” with the first edition featuring English DJ Bonobo (also featured on their fabric XX lineup).

Lastly, their brand will hit two of the cities major festivals (not yet named) and will return to Barcelona’s OFF Week. More announcements will be coming via their website.

“We want to say thank you to everyone that’s been part of this journey over the past two decades. So much of the world surrounding us has changed in this timespan, but your love for us has always been unparalleled. From the celebratory times to our most challenging moments, it’s your support that’s built our legacy.”

All Day I Dream has officially created a Los Angeles tradition. As with the past few consecutive New Year’s weekends, the Lee Burridge-led brand touches down in the city to cap off the 2018 — and bringing a couple close friends with it. Sebastien Légér, a star in the progressive realm, will be exploring his deep house side come December 29. The producer had a fair amount of his work signed to the label this year, with his Underwater Rocket EP being a notable addition.

Gab Rhome will also be joining in the festivities. An expert in sentimentality, his records have found their way onto Anjunadeep, Henry Saiz’ Natura Sonoris, and beyond, the Canadian maestro will be a welcome new face at the Sunday afternoon gathering. Per usual, it will be held at Chinatown’s historic Gin Ling way, an intimate and fitting location for the All Day I Dream ambiance.
