Electronic music bands together, DJs pledge support amidst Australian bushfire destructionAustralian Bushfires 2020

Australia is facing the worst wildfires the continent has seen in decades after months of persistent heat and drought. The wildfires have claimed 24 lives and more than 2,000 homes, 6.3 million hectares of land across the bush, national parks, and forests, and more than 500 million animals.

It’s no secret that many of electronic music’s best and brightest hail from down under, though artists around the world are banding together to bring attention to the crisis and to encourage fans to donate to the ongoing efforts to calm the fires and help those devastated by the destruction. Aussie electronic figurehead Nina Las Vegas is donating the proceeds from her entire NLV Records catalog, Alison Wonderland is donating proceeds from her merch store all month long. Those who are able to donate can find different donation platforms and causes here.

Alison Wonderland strikes emotional chord with the acoustic rendition of ‘Peace’Screen Shot 2018 07 03 At 1.13.20 PM

Alison Wonderland has shared a glorious acoustic rendition of her hit 2019 single, “Peace.” The original was the Australian heavy hitter’s second release of the year behind her collaboration with Dillon Francis “Lost My Mind,” in promotion for their co-headlining tour. “Peace” was followed with well-received remixes from the likes of Kaivon, Nightcall, QUIX and more.

Now, in the midst of the end of the year holiday crawl, Alexandra Sholler sets her smoky voice center stage in a stripped back version of the original that highlights her brooding cello playing skills alongside acoustic guitar riffs and an electronic guitar melody. It’s a tasteful offering in this time of giving with an emotional tone evocative of Evanescence.

In a statement on Twitter, the superstar DJ shared how vulnerable this track made her feel, as she’s never released a song that’s showed so much of herself without the bells and whistles.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2019Madeon Top Tracks Eoy 2019

2019 has been a remarkable year for new music.

The past twelve months brought with them a collection of highly anticipated LPs: Madeon‘s Good Faith, Avicii‘s posthumous Tim, Gesaffelstein‘s Hyperion, Illenium‘s ASCEND, along with a Flume mixtape. Notable collaborations like REZZ and Malaa‘s “Criminals,” Seven Lions, Wooli, Trivecta, and Nevve‘s “Island,” and GRiZ and Subtronics‘ “Griztronics” hit the airwaves in blazes of glory. Supergroups like Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize) and Get Real (Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet) showcased the power of doubling up on brainpower. And, of course, countless singles had us hitting repeat more times than were calculable: Dillon Francis‘ “Still Not Butter,” i_o‘s “House of God,” Habstrakt‘s “De la Street,” Alesso‘s “Progresso,” and so many more.

In no particular order, we present a 30-track collection of our favorite songs of the year, chosen by DA writers and editors.

Alison Wonderland and QUIX strikes with eclectic remix package for their ‘TIME’ projectAlison Wonderland

“TIME” showed off a different side to Alison Wonderland and QUIX‘ collective musicality. Take for instance the former’s “High” with Enschway featuring Trippie Redd—an already festival-ready piece that QUIX managed to make even more explosive. The inspiration for “Time,” however, stemmed from a trip that lead to an idea to make a song that stretches time, thus leading to an unexpected aesthetic for their debut joint project. Now, a variety of remixes have extended the lifespan of the track, further stretching the project’s metaphysical clock.

Remixers include a low-end thumper from SLUMBERJACK, a serene cooler from Madnap, a house forward thriller from BARILAN, and a festival ready tweaker from Yvng Jalapeño. QUIX is set to release his brand new EP IDK [Vol. 1] this Friday off Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak, a four-track EP that brushes grimy and distorted tones onto effervescent, dark bass music.

Firefly Music Festival to return to 4-day format for 2020 iteration

Firefly Music Festival to return to 4-day format for 2020 iterationFIREFLY Music Festival 2016 ALIVE Coverage 26

Firefly Music Festival will revert to its former four-day glory for its 2020 iteration. Organizers of the Dover, Delaware-based event notably abbreviated Firefly to three days for the festival’s 2019 installment. However, come June 18-21, 2020, Firefly will return to the Woodlands with a wider array of artists in tow than this past year saw, naturally, thanks to its reinstated full format.

“We just couldn’t resist the opportunity for more music,” Firefly marketing director, Kyla Lombardo, told Delaware State News.

Coordinators’ decision to readopt the four-day structure was largely predicated on fan demand, Lombardo said. A limited stock of Firefly 2020 presale tickets is currently available on Firefly’s official website.

With its first iteration landing in 2012, Firefly has contracted a wealth of top-tier sonic cavalry from across the musical continuum. Last year’s edition hosted Post Malone, GRiZ, Alison Wonderland, Travis Scott, and many more.

Besides the in-demand event brand’s Orlando arm of Electric Daisy Carnival, Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is Insomniac’s newly adopted Floridian music destination—in conjunction with original organizers, Soundslinger. After taking a brief hiatus in 2019, the four-day weekender will return to Sunshine Grove for its fourth installment in 2020, March 5-8, with ample electronic and multi-genre acts of mention in tow.

From the electronic ether, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Bassnectar, Kaskade, Alison Wonderland, Bob Moses, and Big Gigantic have all been secured for the 2020 Okee undertaking. Additionally, acts like Vampire Weekend, Mumford & Sons, Lotus, and more serve to shake up the weekend criterion, satiating even the most famished multi-interest festival-goer.

Okee 2020 kicks off Thursday, March 5, with the opening night pre-party. All ticket and camping passes go on sale Friday, October 18 at 10am ET, here, where general festival information is available, too.

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.
