As Swedish House Mafia‘s hotly anticipated reunion continues to materialize, the trio have confirmed another stop on their comeback circuit.

ODESZA announce inaugural Foreign Family Collective festival Sundara, topped by RÜFÜS DU SOL, RL Grime, and moreOdesza Lost Lake Jeff Kravitz

ODESZA announced earlier this year that they would not return to Red Rocks Amphitheater in 2019, thereby ending a consecutive four-year run of shows at the venue. The news led fans to speculate that the electronic duo could be plotting a momentous event in place of the annual Colorado show, more specifically, a Foreign Family Collective festival. Now, the duo have officially ended the speculation with the announcement of Sundara, set for March 13 – 16, 2019 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

The label heads, and now festival organizers, are slated to headline the event, along with Alison Wonderland, RL Grime, and RÜFÜS DU SOL. Supporting talent for the inaugural beach festival includes Bob Moses, Tokimonsta, and Golden Features. Each act featured on Sundara’s debut lineup will play two different, unique sets across the three day event.

ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective label claimed an Electric Forest first in 2017 as the imprint hosted its own stage at the Michigan festival, programmed with talent curated from their imprint including Jai Wolf, Chet Porter, and Kasbo. ODESZA enthusiasts reasoned that the launch of a festival-style event would be a logical next step in Foreign Family’s progression, and as ODESZA has confirmed, a Foreign Family festival is now well within fans’ collective ‘line of sight.’

Beyond the Booth 014: Marques Wyatt & the ritual of self care

This post was originally published on this site

Beyond the Booth is a feature dedicated to the hidden side of artists that exists outside electronic music— a side rarely discussed with those outside their immediate circle. We venture “beyond the booth,” so to speak, and dive into their deepest passions that tie into their unique personalities. After some self-introspection, each participant then returns to the booth, providing an exclusive mix for the Dancing Astronaut audience.

Los Angeles has a vibrant underground dance culture that remains strongly rooted in the city despite attempts to overthrow it. At its helm is Marques Wyatt, a veritable stalwart who’s poured his blood, sweat, and tears into his DEEP brand, and in cultivating the scene around him.

His philosophy is one that rings true across history: music is a ritual. For years, the combination of rhythm and melody have helped guide humans to new planes, and Wyatt taps into this through each of his sets. He has an ear for all things meaningful within the 4/4 realm, consistently leading his listeners on introspective journeys through mystical and soulful shades of house. Not to mention, the humility and passion he exudes have made him a well-loved icon locally and beyond.

A main staple on the transformational circuit, Wyatt is bound for Mexico’s RHA festival — taking place from May 25-26 — where he will be pleasing an international audience with what’s likely to be an enticing track selection. Beforehand, however, he stopped by the DA offices to dive into the other most important part of his life: self care. He gives us some useful tips on non-violent communication, healthful foods, and decompressing; a nice complement to the business of the festival he will soon be dominating.


What is your go-to health food?
If you slit my wrist, avocado would come pouring out. My favorite food in the world.

Tell us about your favorite natural remedies.
In Ayurvedic Medicine, oil pulling (specifically coconut oil pulling) is a fantastic oral detoxification procedure that’s simply done by swishing a tablespoon of oil (typically coconut, olive or sesame) in your mouth for 10-20 minutes.

Secondly, I get bitten by mosquitoes a lot when traveling. I discovered the best repellent for mosquitoes which is natural and made by Avon of all people. It’s called “Skin So Soft.” It’s been tried and tested in the jungles of Tulum, Hawaii and other places I used to get eaten alive. If you do happen to get bitten… lavender oil for the bites is amazing. 😉

How did you get into yoga, how has it changed you for the better? How does it tie into your DEEP brand/musical ethos, and why should people try it out?
Yoga has taught and continues to teach me about myself. When I first began to practice, I noticed there was a direct correlation between how I dealt with challenging poses and how I dealt with challenges in my life. I learned to breathe through both and stay focused, whether in completing a pose or task. I also, began to notice myself being much more grounded and less reactive. Which is a great tool to be able to access in this chosen profession of mine, riddled with so many different personalities. Yoga and music are my two loves, so the fact that we have created a branch of DEEP-LA (Deep Exhale) that contributes to health and wellness is a blessing.

What are your thoughts on non-violent communication as a ways to resolve conflict?
Non violent communication is the only way that works towards a positive result. Choose your language carefully and avoid words that put someone on the defense and/or make them feel wrong about how they feel.

What are some tips you have for processing/working through emotions?
A sure way to work through negative emotions is to understand that they begin with a thought.

THOUGHTS>FEELINGS>ACTIONS=RESULT. Thus, it’s a good practice to notice negative shifts in the way you feel, then track the origin of the thought you chose to produce the feeling. Then choose another thought that better serves you.

RHA announces lineup as stunning as its location

RHA

RHA touched down in the scenic Puta Mita, Mexico in 2017. Soon after the close of its first edition, the nascent destination festival distinguished itself as one of the top of its class when it came to travelling and dance music.

Boasting an impressive array of talent across the house and techno spectrum, RHA’s second edition is set to be as grandiose as its predecessor. Luciano will be headlining, for one — his first time back in Mexico in three years. Joining him are the likes of Justin Martin, Charlotte De Witte, Sabo, Marques Wyatt, Lee Foss, and more. RHA has also upgraded its confines, adding a brand new natural ampitheatre to host an array of its artist roster.

The event takes place Memorial Day Weekend. Grab tickets and find more information here.

Seth Troxler calls upon UMF Mexico headliners to pledge donations to hurricane relief

This post was originally published on this site

Good guy Seth Troxler has a request for fellow Ultra Music Festival Mexico headliners.

The house and techno tastemaker called upon festival headliners to donate 10% of their artist fee to the earthquake relief efforts ongoing in Mexico, or alternatively, to match the amount that he is contributing to the initiative. He personally pledged $10,000, announcing his donation via Twitter yesterday.

Troxler originally addressed Richie Hawtin, Knife Party, Dubfire, Nicky Romero, and Dash Berlin in his tweet, yet as of right now, none of the artists have responded to him — at least publicly. Martin Garrix, however, matched Troxler’s donation, also granting $10,000.

UMF Mexico has already shared its plans to donate 1,000,000 pesos to the country’s earthquake relief, a figure that equates to about $50,000 USD. 50% of UMF’s ticket sales will also be directed to the relief project.
