“Being jaded is lame,” The Black Madonna comments on her experience on Holy Ship!The Black Madonna Uli Webber Mimag

The Black Madonna might be a little more of a believer in EDM after her experience on the most recent sailing of Holy Ship!. The floating festival, which just anchored its 12th and 13th editions, booked its annual lineup of dance and hip-hop’s best for two weekends of cruise ship revelry. The lineup featured The Black Madonna within a well-rounded cast of talent, spanning from 4B to Skream, Valentino Khan to A-Trak, and while the BBC resident DJ admits she will always feel “most comfortable in a dirty basement or warehouse,” it seems her experience on Holy Ship! has softened her heart for electronic music’s gateway genre. It all started with a word of advice from electronic music’s sagest wiseman, Carl Cox of course. Cox concedes that EDM is a fan’s entry point, and hopefully, from there they will develop their own acquired tastes.

Seeing it unfold aboard the ship, The Black Madonna reflected on her Holy Ship adventure, taking to Twitter with a host of gratitude to the ShipFam for, “teaching an old dog new tricks.” Read The Black Madonna’s cheerful tweets below.

Ultra Music Festival is going to be hard pressed to top last year’s Miami edition, but with the delivery of 2019’s first phase lineup it looks like the festival is aiming to do just that. This year’s event of course included Swedish House Mafia‘s not-so-secret headlining reunion and it was the last edition to be held at the festival’s longtime home at Bayfront Park. Now, with the move to Virginia Key, Ultra is pulling out all the stops, starting with a top-notch lineup that’s teeming with talent.

The first headliners announced include Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Tiësto, ZEDD, and Marshmello among others, and live sets are expected from deadmau5, who will be officially debuting the Cube 3.0 ODESZA, Louis the Child, and more. The first phase lineup includes a massive supporting cast as well, from Whethan to Jai Wolf, Kayzo to Phantoms with droves of acts in between. Shasha and John Digweed will share the stage, Richie Hawtin, Maceo Plex, and Carl Cox are slated to bring the underground flavor, and deadmau5 will pull double duty as Testpilot at Virginia Key Beach & Miami Marine Stadium over the weekend of March 29 – 31. See Ultra’s full phase one lineup below.

Tickets to Ultra Music Festival 2019 are available here.

Season 3 Episode 4 of The Martin Garrix Show jets off to Miami where Martin Garrix takes viewers inside his life as the new face of high fashion brand, Armani. The unlikely union has seized headlines since the announcement mid-2017.

This particular episode sees the Dutch DJ talk about how surreal it is for him to be in a position where a brand would want to work with a self-proclaimed “computer nerd.” The focal point of the show follows Garrix to his documentary premiere for, What We Started where DJs like Carl Cox, Oliver Heldens, and others came out to support the documentary debut.

The episode is not without its cute moments, for instance when the producer gets a mosquito bite and has to use his girlfriend’s concealer to cover it up before an event.

Carl Cox names partners in Space Ibiza restorationCarl Co

Space Ibiza‘s seminal resident Carl Cox seeks to reinstate the iconic White Isle venue, as the pioneer of the underground originally announced during an interview with Be-At TV in August. Cox now follows his previous disclosure with more details about his initiative to bring back the world-famous nightclub, including the entities who will collectively work with him to breathe life back into the former Balearic nightlife staple. Owner and founder of Space Ibiza, Pepe Rosello, veteran Ibiza promoter, Dave Browning, and former Space Ibiza general manager, Juan Arenas, comprise the expert staff that will join Cox in the venture.

“Space club Ibiza has always been my home for the last 20 years, and now to pave the new way for the future of Space is really exciting,” Cox said. “Forming a partnership with Pepe, Juan, and Dave Browning, to run the newly formed team, feels solid in the way that we are a family team, and I feel we can bring everything back to where it belongs.” Cox added that the team has “some exciting news for next year,” the specifics of which will Cox will share at a future date.

“Space is a way of living the music, which is part of our shared experiences in the most vibrant moments of our life,” Rosello said of the experiential basis for Space Ibiza. “The roots of Ibiza extend to new destinations with the joy, passion, and enthusiasm for this adventure, to return to our house, the island.” Re-envisioning Space Ibiza in a modern context will require an expert staff, and given Cox, Rosello, Browning, and Arenas’ intimate knowledge of all things Space Ibiza, there couldn’t be a more qualified team to spearhead Space’s revival.

2018 has seen Los Angeles’ electronic music scene receive a lot of close attention. Most recently, the Gary Richards-backed All My Friends Festival brought a tailored music experience downtown LA, and now Secret Project has announced its impending arrival this fall.

Courtesy of local party promoter A Club Called Rhonda and Factory 93, Secret Project will bring some of the electronic underworld’s most venerated artists to a block party taking place in the area surrounding Chinatown’s Naud Street, including DJ sets from veterans Carl Cox, Tale of Us, Bonobo, unique b2bs from artists like Dixon and Âme, and live performances from Bicep and Stephan Bodzin. 

The event will not only be led by music, but local businesses and culture to bring the experiential two-day event together. Attendees will be able to experience unique food and drink experiences thanks to curating from David Chang’s high end restaurant Majordōmo and famed mixology bar Apotheke. All of this over October 13 and 14 will be a celebration of a neighborhood — like many on Los Angeles’s east side — that has been invigorated in transformation in recent years.

Tickets to Secret Project will go on sale Friday, August 25 at 12 PM PST. Secret Project will bring Bonobo, Carl Cox and more to new Los Angeles block partyDownload 1

Carl Cox has plans to bring back Space Ibiza

Carl Cox has plans to bring back Space IbizaCarl Co Space 6

One of Ibiza’s most iconic venues famously closed at the end of its 2016 season with a party for the history books. Space Ibiza ended its reign as the world’s greatest club for nearly 27 years, maintaining itself as a White Isle fixture and a pilgrimage destination for dance music fans. After its closure, new management took over the site ushering in a new era with the opening of Hï Ibiza in the same spot, which is building its own, already decorated history. But one of Space Ibiza‘s most recognizable and venerated faces, Carl Cox, isn’t done building the club’s lasting legacy.

Recently, in an interview with Be-At TV, Cox revealed that his connections to Space Ibiza are as strong as ever, and with that, he’s figuring out a way to bring the world famous venue back to the island:

“Space was definitely the place for me. We have the idea of bringing Space back next year for maybe an opening and closing, but apart from that we are actually looking for a new area to build a new Space somewhere on the island.”

Later in the interview, the Ibiza stalwart goes on to drop more exciting bits of information concerning Space’s immanent return. Describing what is essentially his version of exile, Cox explains,

“Yes, it’s going to happen – there’s no doubt about that! I’m going to bring it back in the near or the distant future. I mean, I’ve lost my home and I need to build a new one. Space was built as an independent club in Playa d’en Bossa. Playa d’en Bossa only became Playa d’en Bossa because of Space. The new Space doesn’t actually have to be on Playa d’en Bossa. Obviously, we need someplace where it’s a little bit quiet. There is no way I’m going to build a Space nightclub next to Ushuaia or anything. We will go to a completely new place with a new concept. But the idea is to have the same people who made Space and have people who want to support me in my quest to create a new Space back on the island.”

While there is no timeline set for this new concept’s debut, the Intec veteran is certainly a man of his word, and if anyone can resurrect the iconic club to its former glory, its Carl Cox.
