As the opening notes of “everything matters (when it comes to you)” started to drift into the crowd, thousands of fans who’d gathered to hear San Holo perform his album1 show lit up with excitement.

The June 13 performance was the artist’s first headlining gig at the storied venue, and he brought along friends like Shallou and Chet Porter to share in the experience. The bitbird label head performed his album1 LP in full during his set, taking his audience on a journey through fan favorites like “lift me from the ground” and “worthy.”

In the video’s description, the producer refers to his set as “vibrant,” and rightly so. Those who cherished album1 upon its September 2018 release and continue to do so will appreciate this glowing live rendition of the album’s 12 tracks. View the performance in full below.

STREAM NOW: San Holo pulls out the stops at EDC’s main stage

STREAM NOW: San Holo pulls out the stops at EDC’s main stageSan Holo Album1 Announcement

Bitbird boss San Holo is guiding EDC into its final morning over at the Kinetic Field. The Dutch future bass pioneer is primed to bring the energy levels up via his unique blend of sentimental melodicism and a tight, thumping low-end. This set might err to the former of the two traits tonight; on May 17, Holo tweeted that his set would be the “most emotional” he’s ever played, and implied some teary moments were in store. It will likely include new music from his September 2018 LP, album1, in addition to newer cuts from Bitbird signees from the Gouldian Finch 3 compilation.

San Holo has been heavy on the album campaign trail since it released, scoring key performances at many iconic festivals—including EDC Las Vegas. He’s also been confirmed to play San Francisco’s Outside Lands in July.

‘Gouldian Finch 3’ offers 14 different flavors on San Holo’s bitbird imprintGouldian Finch 3

As a representation of the bitbird imprint, the label run by San Holo has released a compilation album Gouldian Finch 3. The project features previously unleashed singles such as “morning might turn things around” by Flaws and ILIVEHERE., “All I Know” by Taska Black and Sem, “Tell Me Why” by Duskus, and San Holo’s acoustic-electronic, “Lead Me Back,” as his only release in 2019 thus far.

Ten new tracks grace the team project, including familiar faces such as bitbird regular DROELOE on their glitchy indie-pop “Snow Shovels,” to a release from San Holo’s former alias, Casilofi, on the serene soundscape “Memories,” and a classical roller coaster from Marcioz and BeauDamian on “The Generated Freakshow.”

New faces to the Dutch record label include Knapsack on the percussive-heavy “Easy To Communicate,” newcomer YAS on her violin-laden “empty crown,” the fiery bass cruncher in Ian Munro’s “Violence,” and a debut single from RIBB[]N, “Piece Of Mind.”

In line with a lengthy track record of top-notch annual programming, Outside Lands‘ 2019 lineup is a mixed bag of musical talent that offers something for all types of music lover. The San Francisco affair’s collection of headliners is rife with artists who are in the midst of career hot streaks. Recent multiple Grammy Award-winning artist Kacey Musgraves tops the lineup with Anderson .Paak, Childish Gambino, and Flume. Attendees can presumably expect Flume to use his Outside Lands slot as a launchpad for new music, given his release of mixtape, Hi, This is Flume, and his ensuing announcement that more fresh material would soon follow. Paul Simon, Twenty One Pilots, The Lumineers, Blink-182, Kygo, Leon Bridges, and Lil Wayne round out the remaining headliners.

Outside Lands’ 2019 lineup represents the electronic genre in its broad scope. RL Grime, San Holo, Big Wild, DJ Koze, Justin Martin, Shallou, and Bob Moses appear among the many producers tapped to perform at the festival. Moreover, DJ Koze, Bay Area-natives Luttrell and Justin Martin, and Flying Lotus‘ lauded 3D show all appear on this year’s billing too. Outside Lands will descend upon San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park from August 9-11. GA and VIP passes to the event will go on-sale on March 28 at 10 AM PT, and can be purchased, 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.

San Holo shares heartrending ‘Always On My Mind’ music video

San Holo shares heartrending ‘Always On My Mind’ music videoSANHOLO 05 Com

San Holo offers a heart-wrenching depiction of grief in his new music video for “Always On My Mind,” featuring James Vincent McMorrow and Yvette Young.

The video tells the story of a poignantly profound romance, depicting a woman during her moments of deep sorrow juxtaposed with nonlinear snippets of a relationship. Happy moments the couple share fade to the background, as viewers watch as he discovers her in their room, no longer breathing. The four-minute narrative lends the track’s subtle future bass notes and the sullen vocals a paradoxical appendage.

Sharing the video to Twitter, San Holo wrote, “This video goes out to anybody who’s ever felt hopeless watching somebody they loved suffer without knowing how to help.”

Point Point certainly executes their eponymous goal in “A Piece of Sun,” from their 2016 Family Portrait EP. The ultimate mood remedy, “A Piece of Sun”‘s thumping percussion, mallet insertions, funky breakdown, and invariably catchy beep-boop melody is the perfect dose of eccentric escape.

All is well inside Washed Out’s hallucinogenic wonderland, “It All Feels Right.” The song’s floating strings and melting, vocoder vocals are best suited to pristinely preserve and replenish depleted serotonin.

San Holo is kickin’ it old school this week, with the release of his Create Create Create EP under his nascent Casilofi alias. Taken from the EP, “Little Treasure” is a paragon of slow-motion splendor, with its tender synth plucks and airy percussion. Dancing Astronaut has just deemed the song the only known phenomenon to move slower than a Sunday morning.

The master of majestic chill-step, Blackmill narrows the gap between violence and delicacy with his anesthetizing dose of “Evil Beauty.” The track’s jarring snares and winding, transcendent piano progressions arrive as an emotional emblem of end-of-weekend paradox.

Place your dreams inside Catching Flies’s remix of Mt. Wolf’s “Life Size Ghosts,” and watch them furrow and expand atop your eardrums. The remix’s twinkling bell synths, rattling harp strums, and syrupy saxophone light up this week’s playlist—as rare and radiant as Northern Lights.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018Skrille 1

Paring down an entire year’s worth of songs is no easy feat.

2018 saw the explosion of songs like ZEDD‘s “The Middle” and Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” dominating both the dance music charts and the radio airwaves. Ear-catching tracks like these, along with fan favorites like FISHER‘s persuasive “Losing It” and Anti Up‘s entertaining “Pizza” wiggled their way into festival sets around the world and — love them or hate them — stood out as notable tracks that do their part in immortalizing this whirlwind of a year.

We also saw a creative collective of remixes surface in 2018, including Rinzen‘s compelling take on deadmau5 and Rob Swire‘s hit “Monophobia” and Skrillex‘s intoxicating rendition of Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode.” We celebrated the return of Gesaffelstein with “Reset” and welcomed new projects from Diplo in LSD and Silk City. We welcomed collaborations from Ekali, Medasin, and Elohim in “Forever,” Tiësto, Dzeko, Post Malone, and Preme in platinum smash hit “Jackie Chan,” and ZHU and Tame Impala in “My Life.”

Ultimately, though, we’ve narrowed 2018 down to 30 tracks that stole our hearts and smashed streaming records.

San Holo returns to lo-fi alias, Casilofi, for ‘Create, Create, Create’ EP [Stream]

San Holo returns to lo-fi alias, Casilofi, for ‘Create, Create, Create’ EP [Stream]Casilofi03 1

Using his now lofty label housing, bitbird, San Holo (Sander van Dijck) is bidding adieu to 2018 with a retrospective release under his former alias, Casilofi.

The “Light” producer concocted the dreamy, yet utterly minimal, four-part EP, Create Create Create, entirely sans studio equipment, using only his laptop: a nod at his primordial production days spent drumming up tunes from his bedroom. Through the EP, the bitbird boss says he was able to rediscover the beauty of creating music all on his lonesome.

“Casilofi is the first electronic project I ever started in terms of producing my own music… I didn’t have to rely on a band, I could just take everything into my own hands,” says van Dijck.

Now, it’s time to let the languorous and self-referential Create Create Create send listeners through its warm kaleidoscope of simpler times–as it did van Dijck.
