Revist Skrillex's legendary Red Rocks Mothership performance four years later

Back in 2014, we saw Skrillex‘s career reach its first real peak with the release of his seminal debut album and the ensuing Mothership Tour that followed. But four years in dance music can feel more like an eternity, and since then, detours with Jack Ü and massive collaboration opportunities with some of the world’s biggest pop stars have generally occupied the majority of Skrillex’s creative output, leaving fans starved for any semblance of hope that a pick-up-where-Recess-left-off scenario might still occur. Rumors of a sophomore record have been circulating for some time now, most notably with Diplo spilling the beans in passing, but while we hold our collective breath waiting for that to materialize into anything substantial, we can still revisit the pinnacle of Recess-era Skrillex on the fourth anniversary of his famed Red Rocks Mothership performance.

From the moment the curtain drops in front of the life-sized spaceship rig, the OWSLA figurehead rattles Red Rocks Amphitheater with a full two hours of heavy bass essentials for what is undoubtedly one of Skrillex’s most memorable outings to date. A lot can change in four years, and in the life of an internationally renown global dance icon, four years probably feels more like eight. But something tells us were approaching something big from Skrillex, and a revisiting of his Red Rocks set might be the perfect primer.

Above & Beyond name new track after the locale of its debut: Red Rocks

This post was originally published on this site

Simplicity is key with Above & Beyond‘s naming convention for their newest single, “Red Rocks.” The track is named after the legendary Colorado outdoor amphitheater, the place where they first dropped the song.

“Red Rocks” has a pulsing rhythm and dynamic synthesized vocal accents, adding variation to their infamous trance sound. The track has a grooving bent to it that is perfect the club and equally at home in larger venues — like its namesake.  The trio released both the original and extended version of the release, which is out now on Anjunabeats.

Pretty Lights announces 10th anniversary Red Rocks show

This post was originally published on this site

Pretty Lights has been obscenely quiet for some time now, and it’s rumored amongst his tight-knit family following that the reason behind his silence is that he’s working on new album material. After all, his Color Map of the Sun LP was released more than five years ago. To add further fuel to that speculation, Smith has halted announcements for his heavily attended episodic tour that have been taking place over the last two years.

However, it wouldn’t be summer in Colorado without Derek Vincent Smith’s return to the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheater — and he’s not calling it an episodic tour stop either. Lineup support has yet to be announced, but if it’s anything like his previous events, fans can expect a fully loaded talent roster with funky groove appeal.

The special 10th anniversary event will take place over two nights, August 10-11, in Morrison, Colorado. A limited number of presale tickets will be available at 10 a.m. EST Wednesday, April 18, but fans must register for the Pretty Lights newsletter to get the special code.

Deadmau5 is currently in the midst of the second jaunt of his ‘lots of shows in a row tour.’

In honor of his two-day October stint at Colorado’s venerable Red Rocks Amphitheater, deadmau5’s released an aftermovie, showing off his custom-built Cube 2.1, and even taking the time to tease some new music.

The aftermovie launches into deadmau5’s recent Shotty Horroh feature “Legendary,” but as the video nears its halfway point, the scene shifts to mau5’s performance, wherein a new track, “A Seed” is revealed.

Standing at a slight but mighty 50-second clip, deadmau5 plants the seed for what is likely a number off his new record.

If the big cheese keeps good by his word and avoids any unforeseen roadblocks, it seems the record should blossom by Spring.
