Live set roundup: Stream Ultra day two performances from Zedd, deadmau5, Martin Garrix + morePhilippe Wuyts For Ultra Music Festival Day 3 1

Ultra Music Festival‘s second day of production was nothing short of explosive. Martin Garrix fans found an unexpected new Garrix single on major streaming platforms everywhere just minutes after Garrix took Ultra’s main stage. Sound familiar? It should have, for that single was none other than Matisse & Sadko and Alex Aris’ collaboration, “Mistaken,” which comprised the opening of Garrix’s Ultra set. Garrix’s swift progression from the live debut of an unreleased ID, to the formal release thereof, however, was but one of the many noteworthy electronic developments of Ultra’s second day.

From deadmau5‘s presentation of the cutting-edge technology that is Cube 3.0 for the very first time during his main stage closing set, to Zedd’s gritty remix of Swedish House Mafia‘s “Save to World,” not to mention Illenium‘s Ultra debut, day two of the Miami flagship kept live streamers and attendees alike engaged in their uncertainty of just what would happen next. Relive the festival’s momentous sequel to day one with sets from Zedd, Armin van Buuren, Illenium, NGHTMRE & Slander (Gud Vibrations), Tchami, deadmau5, and Martin Garrix.

Revisit live sets from Ultra’s opening day, here.

Martin Garrix surprise releases Ultra intro, ‘Mistaken’ with Alex Aris

Martin Garrix surprise releases Ultra intro, ‘Mistaken’ with Alex ArisMartin Garri Dryo

Ultra Miami has always been a special event for Martin Garrix. The crossover wunderkind’s gigs at the mega-festival involve unveiling multiple new IDs and more, making for a memorable affair each time. After having to miss the 2018 iteration, he ensured his return to the main stage would be particularly special.

Garrix fans received a gift in the form of a brand new release minutes after his Ultra 2019 set began. His opening piece, an Matisse & Sadko and Alex Aris collaboration called “Mistaken,” landed on digital shelves with two different versions. The original, which harkens back to commercial house sounds of the early 2010s, is a slice of vocal euphoria that served as an effective opener for Garrix’ momentous returning set. Its accompanying club version errs a bit more toward the gritty side, but is equally nostalgia-influenced. Of his performance, the producer tweeted out his praise: “tonight was very special.”

Spring Awakening reveals multifarious undercard: Andrew Bayer, Chris Lake, TroyBoi, + moreSAMF2018 0609 215039 4768 DVS

After confirming its new location and official headliners earlier this week, Spring Awakening Music Festival has released the remainder of the lustrous 2019 lineup.

Spring Awakening’s undercard, though there’s hardly anything lowly about it, spans some of the most accomplished names in techno, house, trance, and bass music. Anjuna-adept festival-goers will notice the generous number of names from Above & Beyond‘s hallowed home for all things trance and house music to celebrate the Anjuna-branded stage that will land at SAMF this year along with a menagerie of native talent, from longtime veteran Andrew Bayer to former The M Machine member, Luttrell, who just released his first album with the label’s subsidiary imprint, Anjunadeep. From Spring Awakening’s subterranean bass caverns will spawn Liquid Stranger, Rusko, TroyBoi, G Jones, and more across the sweeping, 60-artist ticket.

Announced earlier this week, Spring Awakening 2019’s headliners GRiZ, REZZ, Martin Garrix, DJ Snake, Zedd, and Illenium will touch down at Hoffman Estate’s Poplar Creek for the festival’s first year at its expansive new location June 7-9.

Tickets to Spring Awakening are available here.

The Midwest’s heftiest, strictly electronic music festival, Spring Awakening, will be taking its talents to the northwest suburbs of Chicago for its 2019 iteration, which includes an impressive-as-ever top of the ticket: DJ Snake, REZZ, Martin Garrix, Zedd, Illenium, and GRiZ.

The Hoffman Estates-held Spring Awakening will run June 7-9 at Poplar Creek, a 27-acre property (more than double that of 2018’s grounds, Addams/Medill Park). The new locale will likely equip the fest with the means to reduce noise pollution, overcrowding, cramped stage setups, and additional space-oriented festival conundrums. Since its first year as a multi-day festival, Spring Awakening has seen two different venue shifts. It was initially held in downtown Chicago at the hallowed Solider Field from 2012-2015.

Past installments of the React Presents hallmark event brought the likes of Alison Wonderland, Tiësto, Adventure Club, Skrillex, Dillon Francis, and Zeds Dead, just to name a few. This year’s chapter is expected to feature some 90 artists throughout its three-day span.

The entirety of the lineup is set for announcement Friday, March 15. Tickets to Spring Awakening are on sale now, 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.

Feed Me has at last revealed the full extent of his High Street Creeps LP, which kicks off with otherworldly “Perfect Blue.” JOYRYDE returns after “AGEN WIDA” with his first tune of 2019, “IM GONE,” and San Holo picks up his guitar in his new single, “Lead Me Back.” Afrojack and Chasner have unveiled their energy-filled remix of David Guetta, Bebe Rexha and J Balvin‘s “Say My Name,” and Party Favor and graves transport listeners to a festival main stage on “Reach For Me.” Vincent‘s debut EP officially hits the airwaves today, featuring heartfelt tracks like “Can’t Help Myself” with Pauline Herr. Manila Killa returns with his seven-track 1993 EP on Moving Castle, and The Knocks celebrate the end of the week on their new “block party mix” of Blu DeTiger‘s “In My Head.” It’s been almost a year, but RAM Records king Andy C has resurfaced to bring the world “Till Dawn,” a drum & bass number that’s simultaneously funky and intense. Vicetone‘s four-track Elements EP has arrived on Monstercat, featuring songs like “Home.” David Guetta dons his Jack Back moniker for a new Toolroom Records release with Cevin Fisher, “2000 Freaks Come Out,” and Louis Futon reveals his full 14-track LP, Way Back When. In an interesting turn of events, NGHTMRE, Shaquille O’Neal, and Lil Jon share a byline on their new single, “BANG,” and Diplo flexes on a new body of work, Europa, on Mad Decent.

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.

Martin Garrix & Bonn make another anthem in ‘No Sleep’

Martin Garrix & Bonn make another anthem in ‘No Sleep’No Sleep Martin Garri Bonn

The wait for Martin Garrix‘  second collaboration with Bonn is finally over, with “No Sleep” landing on streaming platforms promptly at midnight CET on February 21. Their last partnership bore an uplifting result in “High On Life,” which enamored the EDM community with its sentimental lyrics and euphoria-inducing big room drops. Thus, fans were overjoyed to hear just after Valentine’s day that these two powerhouses had entered the studio together once again.

They’ve dubbed their new work together, “No Sleep.” This tune is a bit on the calmer side compared to their last, with a heavier focus on its instrumental parts and Bonn’s warm voice. That said, the track is oozing with the mainstream appeal that Garrix has mastered, and has just enough energy to it to be adaptable to both the main stage and at home listening.

High On Life” was a 2018 gem in Martin Garrix‘ ever-growing treasure trove of tracks. Created with singer Bonn, its big room appeal, ecstatic builds, and sing-along friendly lyrics made the tune an instant hit among global EDM fans and worked well in the pop world despite its dance floor arrangement. When something goes so well for an artist, they often feel inclined to repeat the magic, and it appears this was certainly the case with these two musical talents.

Garrix announced through his social platforms that another collaboration with Bonn is indeed on the way, specifically set for a February 22 arrival via his own label, STMPD. Not much is known other than the title being “No Sleep,” but given the two artists’ paired knack for catchy songwriting and their general versatility across different musical realms, the track will more than likely be another winter hit.
