Igloofest makes its imprint on the international music festival scene with its signature, trademark characteristic—embracing the arctic climate known as Canadian winters. The Montréal-based festival has just announced its 2020 season lineup, amassing a proudly diverse selection of male and female artists to top each of the four weekends of its outdoor winter series.

For its upcoming 14th edition, Igloofest welcomes a new slate of headliners over each weekend, held from Jan. 16 – Feb. 8, 2020. The opening weekend kicks off performances from headliners THE BLAZE, ANNA, Reinier Zonneveld, and curated stage takeover from Anjunabeats—with a lineup to be announced. Over the remaining three weekends, the festival’s headliners include REZZ, Nina Kraviz, RÜFÜS DU SOL, ZEDS DEAD, and Charlotte De Witte to close out each chilly night of the series.

Among the headlining performances, Igloofest welcomes an abundance of varied local and international support from artists like i_o, VNSSA, Jeremy Olander, Honey Soundsystem, Robert Hood, and many others. Held in the charismatic grounds of the city’s Old Port, the festival will debut a redesigned layout to increase their capacity, filled with handfuls of activities, treats and vendors within the magical Igloovillage and increased heated IGLOOVIP areas.

NMF Roundup: Laidback Luke remixes Knife Party, Jason Ross and Dabin team up + moreLaidbackLuke TimSnow 20140816 3

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.

After the release of their Lost Souls EP earlier this year, Knife Party have tapped Laidback Luke for a groovy remix of “Death & Desire,” and Jason Ross, Dabin, and Dylan Matthew team up for “One That Got Away.” Wave Racer has released a new single, “This N That” with LunchMoney Lewis, and Martin Garrix links with Dean Lewis for “Used to Love.” Walker & Royce tackle Dom Dolla’s “San Frandisco,” and Hot Since 82 takes it one deeper on “Tilted.” Arty lends his spirited hand to Gorgon City and MK’s “There For You,” and Axwell remixes Halsey’s “Graveyard.” Four Tet’s dingbat-riddled moniker unveils new content, and Nicky Romero, Mike Williams, and Amba Shepherd collaborate on “Dynamite.” REZZ and Malaa take no prisoners on “Criminals,” and Golf Clap deliver their iteration of “Let It Go” by Hood Rich and BRUX. NGHTMRE flexes on an interpretation of Habstrakt’s “The One,” and Herobust cranks up the intensity on “Smoke.” Chime keeps the Halloween spirit alive with “Haunted,” and Modestep sound the “Alarm” on their new single.

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.

REZZ and Malaa unshackle mid-tempo malice, ‘Criminals,’ just in time for Halloween

REZZ and Malaa unshackle mid-tempo malice, ‘Criminals,’ just in time for HalloweenRezz Malaa

REZZ and Malaa‘s long-awaited, two-headed aural animal of unearthly proportions has arrived. “Criminals” has been the source audacious anticipation from each artist’s fandom—who often and enthusiastically intersect—but have now directly collided for the occasion.

The track rings of the beguiling mid-tempo riddling REZZ’s catalog, but that has only just began to slither and writhe into Malaa’s repertoire, namely in the form of “Revolt.” Although, the transition has proved a seamless one for the anonymous but sonically marked masked phenomenon.

The track sizzles with the explosive nature of both its creative entities. However it’s rather difficult to discern who contributed to what production-wise, since the song arrives like a bare-bones version of a REZZ original. The grimacing vocal hook, however, harkens Malaa’s handiwork for certain.

DA’s Supernatural Selections: A Halloween playlist [Best of 2019]

DA’s Supernatural Selections: A Halloween playlist [Best of 2019]Rezz

Amid the season of spiders, ghosts, and demons (oh, my!) Dancing Astronaut presents some of the most delightfully decadent tracks released solely in 2019. The dastard design of the dark arts is never something to scoff at. Dampened tones, haunting harmonies, and menacing drums take the driver’s seat this year, of course, as our annual harrowing Halloween playlist rears its head yet again. In light of the recent mid-tempo Renaissance—and the formidable sounds that followed—this year’s compilation is fashioned from entirely up-to-the-minute offerings.

Highlights include cult leader, REZZ, in the form of two tracks from her most recent project, Beyond The Senses; a tantalizing taste from fiendish newcomer, Kim Petras‘s horror-themed TURN OFF THE LIGHT studio album; chilling sound design from G-Jones, Eprom, KOAN Sound, and Flume; eerie melodies from Gesaffelstein, deadmau5, NGHTMRE, ZHU, and Wolfgang Gartner; and many more ghoulishly heavy hitters.

Other notable mentions include i_o and Grimes new hit thriller, “Violence,” a remix from Knife Party‘s “Ghost Train” after their first EP in four years, and the monstrous “If My Eyes Are Vampires (Your Body Is My Sunlight)” featuring TYNAN, arriving from Sullivan King‘s debut long play. Play this at your next Halloween party or in your pumpkin-print pajamas. But proceed at your peril: these tracks are not for the feeble-hearted.

Shaq subs in for Diplo’s headlining set at Imagine Festival

Shaq subs in for Diplo’s headlining set at Imagine FestivalShaq 2018 Billboard 1548

If there’s one DJ best suited to be called off the bench in order save a festival in its 11th hour, it’s without question Diesel, aka Shaq. Mad Decent founder Diplo was scheduled to headline the first night of Atlanta’s Imagine Festival, but pulled out at the last minute. It’s safe to say that fans are in good hands, though, as Shaq has made a living on grabbing the rebound and slamming it home.

Diesel, who has been DJing for as long as he’s been playing ball, is scheduled for a 75-minute set on Friday night following mau5trap’s scalding hot REZZ. His presence alone turned heads at this year’s Tomorrowland, but it wasn’t long before he won them over with his kinetic, bass-influenced style.

“My father told me something very important—a long time ago, if somebody is going to pay money to see you, make sure you put on a good show.”

Imagine Festival starts on September 20 and features Diesel alongside an equally robust lineup including Above and Beyond, Claude Von Stroke and Louis The Child.

REZZ unabashedly delivers her finest mix to date on debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 [Stream]

REZZ unabashedly delivers her finest mix to date on debut Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 [Stream]Rezz 11

There’s something incredibly legitimizing about an electronic artist’s first Essential Mix. It’s a level up from one’s current echelon into certified “industry heavyweight” status, and now it’s officially REZZ‘s moment to shine. The undisputed queen of mid-tempo bass, REZZ has long been carving out a formidable name for herself on the international dance circuit, garnering a cultish worldwide following behind a catalog of infectiously strange, gripping sonics.

REZZ’s BBC debut came in 2017 during one of deadmau5‘s residency sessions. After gracing the airwaves during the first hour of her mentor’s mix, it was clear REZZ was bound for her own Essential Mix in the near future. Now, she’s delivered, and she’s kept strictly to her own catalog of work throughout the battering two-hour session.

The Stronach Group, The Maryland Jockey Club, and Club Glow evince the power inherent in collaboration via their presentation of the first phase of the 2019 Clubhouse Festival lineup. Jointly produced by the three entities, the event’s second annual installment touts the artistic trappings of a strong sequel to Clubhouse’s inaugural edition: REZZ, Madeon, Two Friends, and Elephante.

The electronic talent that Clubhouse features, however, will be but one component of the festival. Clubhouse 2019 will concurrently host the Maryland Million when it returns to Laurel Park race track on October 19. With a one-day stakes card offering purses totaling one-million USD, the Maryland Million showcases nominated stallions in the state in a thoroughbred horse race. This facet alone distinguishes Clubhouse as the sole event to merge horse racing with a music festival in the region.

“We’re excited to bring Clubhouse Festival back for the second year as part of the Maryland Million Day. Building on the success of last year, Clubhouse Fest is back to combine world-class racing with an elevated entertainment experience featuring the best in music and brand new immersive food and beverage offerings.”

Jimmy Vargas, Executive Vice President, Entertainment, The Stronach Group

Clubhouse Festival will additionally cater to craft beer enthusiasts via the introduction of its Beats & Brews Greenhouse, stocked with a selection of Maryland’s top craft brews. Those who are 21 years of age and older will have the opportunity to take part in unlimited beer tastings, while enjoying expedited entry through a dedicated admission lane, private charging stations, air-conditioned VIP bathrooms, a premium stage viewing area, and a private VIP viewing area dedicated to the Maryland Million race day action, among other amenities.

Tickets to Clubhouse Festival’s second iteration are now on sale, and can be purchased here.
