Among the first announced to headline the 2019 edition of London’s Creamfields Steel Yard festival is Sweden’s own, Eric Prydz.
The annual event held in the colossal Finsbury Park mega-structure is tacked for May 25-6 of next year, with Prydz capping off the first day. The torrential techno force will be bringing his logic-defying live setup, HOLO, with him to the fiercely attended Steel Yard installment. In addition to Prydz, the festival has secured another mammoth techno talent, Carl Cox, to close out its inaugural day.
The pre-sale for Creamfields Steel Yard London can be purchased here beginning Friday, October 26. The remaining headliners have yet to be unveiled, though are set to be announced soon.
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 Startedwhere 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.
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.
Insomniac’s Factory 93 has long been a haven on the L.A. underground scene, showcasing the latest in Techno and House music. Situated in a warehouse on the outskirts of downtown, Factory 93 is now set to debut its first two-day music festival. Secret Project Festival will incorporate not only some of the best names in
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.
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.
For years, Space Ibiza reigned as the World’s Number 1 Club. Bringing thousands of people in night (and day) in and night out, the club created a name for itself that stood atop the International Club scene. If you ever had the chance to attend, you know that these words ring true and for the
Success is difficult to measure, but if one entices Carl Cox to remix their work early on in their career, it’s likely they are worth the excitement budding around them. Such is the case wit Alex Mine, who’s smoothly transitioned from classically-trained musicianhood into an electronic stalwart. His four-year tenure on the international circuit has landed him on prolific imprints like SCI+TEC, Intec, and now Terminal M, where his sought-after ID, “Lost,” has finally been debuted to the world.
“Lost” in its original form is a heads-down groover, weaving together a classic Detroit atmosphere with hearty percussion and an a delectable bassline that keeps the track in line. A modern twist finds its way into the mix via roaring synths, which add tension and drive to the finished product that has been met with frenzied crowd reactions thus far.
The story behind “Lost” is quite the tale as well. Mine had initially written it in 2015, but it had remained without a label to call home until he met Monica Kruse and promptly had it signed to Terminal M in 2018. The version on this EP is in fact a refreshed version of the original version. By then, it’d been rinsed successfully throughout the underground and had also caught the attention of Carl Cox and Robert Capuano, who each added their own infectious takes.
