Jason Ross discusses the multidimensionality of his sound and new EP, ‘Rooms’ + Premiere

Jason Ross discusses the multidimensionality of his sound and new EP, ‘Rooms’ + PremiereJason Ross Rooms

Jason Ross’s ambitious EP ‘Rooms’ debuts tomorrow and we sat down with the LA-based talent to discuss his multidimensional sound and the genesis of what can only be described as an odyssey of sound and style. The 6 track EP is the culmination of months of carefully considered work, as well as collaborations with some of the best and brightest in electronic music. From progressive soundscapes alongside Seven lions, to vocal collabs with Jonathan Mendelsohn, and a full on psy-trance cut reminiscent of classic Anjuna, ‘Rooms’ serves as a showcase of both his production prowess and his versatility in the studio. Bookending the EP with two cinematic and richly layered compositions, Jason takes us through not only the past year of his artistic development but also his promising trajectory for his future as one of Anjuna’s most talented signees.

Check out exclusive premiere of his collaboration with vocalist Emilie Brandt and dive into the mind and motivations of Jason in our interview below:

Each track on the Rooms EP draws inspiration from various places that have impacted your career. Could you tell us about the happiest place in Rooms? And the saddest?
Many of the tracks draw inspiration from happy places in my life; from growing up in Minneapolis, moving to Los Angeles, playing at The Gorge with Seven Lions, and traveling on a recent 10-date China tour. Some bring forward some melancholy for the past, but most are happy memories.

Is there continuity between the “rooms”/songs on the EP or is each piece meant to stand alone?

Following the Rooms concept, each piece is meant to stand alone; Just as every room in a house has its own space, but every room is under one roof. Essentially, each ‘room (song)’ has its own story to tell, stemming from different parts of my own life.

What inspired you to make a more conceptual EP? Did you always have this concept in mind while working on the music or did you string it together afterwards?

This concept came when I started exploring other genres outside of trance. No matter what style of music I make, it will always have that sound and essence of me. So each room represents a different style of music that I love, stemming from different pivotal and growing points in my life and career.

“The Gorge” is the newest single off the EP, could you tell us a bit about the performance that it’s named after? How did this performance help shape your career?

I played b2b with Seven Lions at Above & Beyond’s ABGT250 show in Washington at The Gorge Amphitheatre. It was such a pivotal point in my career, and opened me up to another world outside of trance. ‘The Gorge’ represents that evolution and growth I had from that performance, and has led to some very new and exciting things, including the recent North America bus tour with Seven Lions and working with Dimibo on this track.

You just launched the first in a series of six “Rooms” DJ Mixes. Tell us a bit about this concept – does it allow you to experiment a bit with your style as a DJ?

The concept around the Rooms Mixes is to give listeners a window into the music that I’m into these days, and what they can expect at a live show. My musical taste is constantly evolving and this is a way to keep them in tune with that, while also revisiting some classics along the way.

You have a great relationship with Seven Lions and have released four tracks on his Ophelia label. Tell us about your working relationship with Jeff and what you’ve been able to learn from him as an artist.

Jeff is an awesome guy, and the relationship has really grown over the couple years of working together. He’s really helped in opening me up to trying new things outside of trance. I never wanted to box myself into one sound or genre, and he gave me that push to experiment. Now, with Ophelia, I have a home where I can release new types of music and it’s super exciting. I’m very thankful for all his support.

What can fans expect during your upcoming Rooms tour?

They can expect the classics that they know me for, along with new music and some twists and turns that I know they’re going to love.


How about the Anjuna family? They are one of the most dedicated group of fans in dance music and have a really special relationship with the Anjunabeats artists. What can you say about them?

The Anjuna family have always been there for me since the very beginning, and are some of the kindest and most dedicated fans. No matter where I play in the world, I can always expect to see an Anjuna flag, T-shirt or hat in the crowd, and I always point them out and give them a smile. They are very loyal to trance, but I’ve seen so many of them show love for the new music I’m putting out as well, and to me that shows dedication and love for me as an artist. It truly means the world. It shows that they love me for the music I make, not for the genre I’m in.

Jason Ross’s ‘Rooms’ EP will be available on all streaming platforms on 1/25. And you can catch him on tour at the following dates and locations.

Above & Beyond surprise with new release, ‘Flying By Candlelight’

Above & Beyond surprise with new release, ‘Flying By Candlelight’Above Beyond Press Shot

Above & Beyond continues their unique and euphoric take on the big room sound with “Flying By Candlelight.” The suprise single also marks the trio’s long awaited reunion with “Tightrope” vocalist, Marty Longstaff. “Flying By Candlelight” is feelsy as ever, combining futuristic, pulsating synths with touching lyrics and euphoria-inducing drops that the trio has become known for. over the better half of the past decade. The club-ready appeal of the original adds a new edge to their soulful collection of releases.

Above & Beyond speaks on the track in an official release, saying, “‘Flying By Candlelight’ is a love song about a saviour who rescues our protagonist from a dark, lonely place, taking him through a spectacular night sky. A bit like The Snowman by Raymond Briggs, but a bit longer lasting!” They have released an original, club, and extended cut of the track, all of which are out now on Anjunabeats.

Tomorrowland unveils 2019 roster of stage hosts, featuring Carl Cox, Dirtybird, Charlotte de Witte, and more

Tomorrowland unveils 2019 roster of stage hosts, featuring Carl Cox, Dirtybird, Charlotte de Witte, and moreTomorrowland 9

Tomorrowland organizers strike a particularly sweet chord among underground enthusiasts with their announcement of the Belgium-based event’s 2019 stage hosts.

The techno-friendly roster sees a number of industrial visionaries assume curative stage responsibilities. Charlotte de Witte, for one, will resume her KNTXT tour at Tomorrowland 2019. De Witte originally debuted her KNTXT showcase back in 2015 at Belgian nightclub, Fuse, and later revived KNTXT for some select shows in the spring of 2018.

Indeed, Tomorrowland hit the techno trifecta this year, with the return of Adam Beyer‘s Drumcode Stage, Jamie Jones‘s Paradise Stage, and Sven Väth’s Cocoon Stage. Nina Kraviz will also head her very own Tomorrowland stage, to further solidify Tomorrowland 2019 as a veritable techno haven. House music fans, fret not, for Tomorrowland also caters to house heads, namely through a Dirtybird stage and the reprise of Claptone‘s traveling party series, The Masquerade. In that vein, Barong Family, Robin Schulz & Friends, and Anjunabeats account for just a fraction of the additional stage hosts slated to grace Tomorrowland’s 2019 iteration.

As in the festival’s previous years of production, Tomorrowland will span two consecutive weekends in July. Tomorrowland’s opening weekend will run Jul 19-21. The second and final weekend of the electronic affair will span Jul 26-28.

Sunset Music Festival (SMF) will be returning to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL for its eighth consecutive year this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend. The phase-one lineup of the festival, suited for everyone from trance to dubstep fans, is out in conjunction with a pre-sale kickoff, for those looking to secure the most advantageously priced spot at Sunset.

SMF attracts approximately 60,000 fans over two event days each year. This year’s lineup will feature acts ranging from Kaskade and Audien to Alison Wonderland and Chris Lake. Dog Blood, comprised of Skrillex and Boys Noize, is certainly among the most auspicious features on the lineup. This is the duo’s second event announcement of the year, following their earlier BUKU Music and Arts Festival show announcement. Indeed, there is much to look forward to from SMF this year, as two of the scene’s most prominent labels, Anjunabeats and Deadbeats, will be found on Sunset grounds, hosting branded stage takeovers at the festival.

Unique to previous years, SMF is introducing GA Plus passes (in addition to standard GA and VIP passes) which will allow express entry on both festival days from 3 PM until midnight Saturday and Sunday. Presale tickets are available here.

Above & Beyond release first collaboration in eight years, ‘Long Way From Home’ with Spencer Brown

Above & Beyond release first collaboration in eight years, ‘Long Way From Home’ with Spencer BrownAbove And Beyond Long Way From Home 1

Above & Beyond and Spencer Brown have decisively aligned their revered electronic talents on a somber, yet dance-friendly new track, “Long Way From Home.” The song received its advantageous debut at A&B’s Group Therapy 300 celebration in Hong Kong earlier this past fall. Now, the feverishly anticipated release is finally here, through, where else, but Anjunabeats.

“Long Way From Home” has gained notoriety ahead of its release as the first time Above & Beyond have officially collaborated with another producer behind the scenes since 2010 (their last was “Anphonic” with Kyau & Albert.) Of course, they’re frequent collaborators with vocalists, but Spencer Brown just solidified his place in the Anjunabeats history–and in its future–through landing this spot. The collaboration feels highly organic, as “Long Way From Home” contains a distinctly dynamic sound from both parties. A departure from the anthems we often see from Above & Beyond, it’s impeccably deep and plaintive, while keeping close ties to multiple entrancing melodies along the way.

The track closes out a year of frequent output for the Above & Beyond enterprise, emphasizing a heavy touring schedule accompanied by a firm outpour of releases. Additionally, Spencer Brown saw a remarkable turnout this year for his chart-topping progressive mix-album, Illusion Of Perfection.
