As younger dance music fans move from the main stage to the underground, one of the first names they hear is the ever-present techno trove Drumcode.

Not only did Adam Beyer knock it out of the park with the imprint’s namesake (equal parts informative and enigmatic), over the last two decades his style of throbbing, eerie techno has become a worldwide staple. And with this unmistakable notoriety, Beyer has expanded the sound even further, driving new trends and simultaneously giving a platform to new generations of trendsetters.

If there’s a dedicated techno stage at an electronic music festival, chances are Drumcode will have it’s own night as it has at EDC Vegas, Tomorrowland, Ultra and the list goes on.

2019 was yet another excellent year for the label. Rebūke and Will Clarke made their debuts on the label, and Julian Jeweil released his first full-length LP, Transmission.

With so much great music coming from Drumcode it was difficult for Beyer to choose an hour’s worth of music for his year-end mix (his words), but he was able to do so with the precision that only a revered industry authority like him could manage.

For over two decades, Movement has been a consistent leading force in Detroit’s lively electronic music scene. While Movement hosts electronic performers from a broad musical background, the emphasis on techno has made the festival a must-visit for fans of the genre. Based on the announcement of the first 10 acts, 2020’s show holds true to the high standard festival organizers have set for themselves.

Techno giant and Drumcode leader Adam Beyer returns as one of the early highlights the lineup. Adding to the techno-heavy roster: Italian producer and Music On founder Marco Carola, tech house stalwart Maceo Plex, Kobosil, and Detroit native DJ Stingray.

Masked dance music producer Boris Brejcha joins Grammy winner Louie Vega and underground dance showman Seth Troxler at Movement 2020 as well. Additional performers include The Black Madonna, who recently made headlines by backing out of the Amazon-supported Intersect Music Festival, and the ever-eclectic Four Tet, who recently shared his remix of Skrillex and Boys Noize’sMidnight Hour.”

Movement Festival is hosted at Hart Plaza along the Detroit River. Tickets are on sale now. Read about the history of the festival here.

Adam Beyer’s Drumcode releases ‘A-Sides Vol. 8’ featuring the underground’s next all-starsDrumcode A Sides Vol 8

Techno connoisseur and DJ Adam Beyer has fueled the underground with up-and-coming artists and hit tracks for 23 years with his renowned imprint, Drumcode. The label has been a fixture in underground electronic music, and it’s yielded some of Beyer and the industry’s best work.

Drumcode has released its annual A-Sides Vol. 8, and it continues to showcase the brand’s quality and pulse on modern house and techno. The 25-track strong compilation features standout cuts that Beyer has received over the last year that he has thus far been unable to find a home for in Drumcode’s regular release schedule.

In A-Sides Vol. 8, multiple artists make their Drumcode return after multi-year hiatus’s from the label. Highlights of the compilation are Jamie Jones & Darius Syrossian‘s buzzy label debut “Eyes of the Night,” Nicole Moudaber’s first Drumcode release in 5 years with the mesmerizing “This Is Us,” Will Clarke‘s bass-drenched re-work of Adam Beyer & Bart Skils “Your Mind,” and Joey Beltram’s first label release in 11 years with the retro-tinged “Can You Feel It.” 

Those looking to experience Drumcode live can see if the label is bringing their artists to an event near them here.

2019 promises to be a banner year of production for Electric Daisy Carnival‘s (EDC) East Coast arm in Orlando, as the staple of the Sunshine State festival circuit unveils its largest lineup yet.

The event will bring a broader selection of electronic talent to Tinker Field from November 8-10 as it expands from a two- to a three-day dance affair to accommodate its voracious following. Jam-packed with the genre’s most acclaimed artists, EDC Orlando’s 2019 lineup features 3LAU, ZHU, Kaskade, Habstrakt, Diplo, DJ Snake, CamelPhat, Gorgon City, just to name a few from the star-spangled roster. More than 20 artists will make their timely Orlando debut, including ANNA, FISHER, Nora En Pure, i_o, and San Holo, among others.

An array of stage takeovers further diversifies EDC Orlando’s agenda. Adam Beyer and Green Velvet will curate branded talent for their Drumcode and La La Land demonstrations, respectively. Dreamstate will meanwhile cater to the trance enthusiasts in attendance, while Bassrush, LA’s Factory93, and Insomniac Music Group will assemble their own aural armies across their takeovers. The mau5trap crew is more than likely to further the trademarked fun with a band of We Are Friends envoys.

Passes to EDC Orlando’s 2019 chapter are now available here.

Premiere: Boxia – Nights Become Days

Premiere: Boxia – Nights Become DaysDC206 Boia RGB LOW RES

June 3 will bring about Boxia‘s debut studio album, A Night In The Life Of. As one of Drumcode‘s notable rising stars, expectations have been set high for the big release. Per the sound of it, the British artist is looking to top the bar and show off his diversity through a patchwork of club-focused tunes. Each are based around different nightlife characters he’s encountered throughout his years on the circuit or around specific memories, giving the LP a particularly expressive effect. The album span across the abstract, all the way to driving, darkened techno.

“Nights Become Days” falls somewhere in the middle of Boxia’s spectrum, and explores a more emotive side to his musicality. Like quite a few tracks on A Night In The Life Of, the single is melodic and almost trancey at times, putting listeners under a nostalgia-filled spell. Much like its title, “Nights Become Days” errs toward the euphoric side; a clear homage to times spent at a party that persisted into daytime hours. Not to mention, it’s a track that clearly means business.

Eric Prydz cancels all Miami performances, cites medical conditionEric Prydz 2016

On Tuesday evening March 26, Eric Prydz officially announced cancellation of all his appearances in Miami including his sold-out Wynwood Factory Pryda show and headlining slots at Ultra Music Festival. In what began as mere speculation, Prydz’s eventual cancellation progressed from the removal of his Wynwood show from the venue website to actual confirmation.

One of the most highly anticipated acts for both MMW and Ultra, Prydz’s absence will be felt, his announcement coming as a shock to many. He posted on Twitter both apologizing and relaying a message concerning “an acute medical condition”.

Pryda ticket-holders will receive refunds and a free week-long pass for pre-midnight entry to Wynwood shows. Prydz was slotted to play a back-to-back with Adam Beyer at Ultra’s new Resistance Island on Friday as well as the ASOT stage on Sunday. With only days left before the festival, the line-up situation for who will fill the gap left by the Swedish veteran still remains unclear, although his presence will surely be missed.
