A cornerstone of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival experience, Do LaB‘s carefully curated stage, rallies expert electronic acts for a high caliber lineup within the festival’s larger billing. Central to Do LaB’s diverse annual lineups are a slew of surprise guests, whom Do LaB situates among its showcased acts. In the past, Do LaB has breathed life into the age-old, highly applicable aphorism, “expect the unexpected,” by bringing the likes of SkrillexMajor Lazer, and Richie Hawtin to Coachella’s Do LaB stage for unanticipated live sets.

Do LaB continued its tradition of large-scale, surprise-guest revelation at Coachella’s recently concluded 2019 iteration, wherein Major Lazer took the decks during Weekend 1. As per Major Lazer’s musical usual, the soon-to-disband group’s set is rife with the tropically inflected dancehall sound that originally rocketed the electronic trio to sonic superstardom.

Now, the festival has moved to a new venue at Buena Vista Lake in Central California, with lush, green pastures, a shaded tree line, and accessible shoreline that’s sure to bring festival-goers in full force.

One attendee reported dead at 2018’s Lightning In A Bottle Festival

This post was originally published on this site

One death has been reported following this year’s Lightning in a Bottle music festival in Lake San Antonio, Central California.

San Luis Obispo officials confirmed Tyler Schripsema, 23, died at Twin Cities hospital after suffering a swimming-related accident at the festival. Officials have not commented on any further details surrounding his death although an autopsy is currently being handled by the San Luis Obispo County Coroner’s Office. His mother, Lisa Schripsema, said the initial autopsy indicated her son died from an injury to his spinal column. “I don’t know if he fell and hit his head,” she told San Luis Obispo. “It was such a freak accident.”

According to the GoFundMe page set up by Schripsema’s fraternity brothers to help pay for the funeral expenses, Schripsema had just graduated from California State University Stanislaus three days before the accident.

This is the second death at Lightning in a Bottle in two years. The festival promoter, Do LaB, is currently facing a lawsuit from the family of a 20-year-old woman who died after taking LSD last year. The family claims she was denied the proper medical attention.

Both Lightning In A Bottle and Do LaB have yet to comment on the passing.

Do LaB and Dirtybird end Dirtybird Campout partnership

Los Angeles-based festival producers Do LaB officially announced that they’ll be ending their longstanding partnership with the bass-bumping house label, Dirtybird Records.

Since the hatching of the Dirtybird Campout back in 2015, both the event and the organizations have each grown considerably. With three years of sold-out events, star-studded lineups, and over the top summer camp inspired programming under their belt, Dirtybird has now chosen to carry out the Campout independently from the Do LaB.

“Creating the wild and one-of-a-kind Dirtybird Campout has been one of the most rewarding experiences we’ve had the privilege to take part in and we’re very proud of the unique event we were able to build together,” Do LaB’s Co-Founder and President, Jesse Flemming said of the two’s partnership. “The Dirtybird community welcomed us with open arms, so hosting their amazing fans for the last 3 years has been very special.”

Fans of the Do LaB’s production can continue to take part in the team’s creative conceptualization at their flagship festival, Lightning In A Bottle, and Coachella.

Tor lays down an eclectic, low-end wonderland ahead of Lightning In A Bottle [Mix]

This post was originally published on this site

Tor

Amidst a blanket of monotony in the bass world, Tor has risen as one of the new wave of forward-thinking talent introducing an aural breath of fresh air.

The producer wriggled his way into the spotlight not too long ago thanks in part to Emancipator, and quickly made a name for himself thanks to his creative arrangement and fearlessness around pushing his own musical boundaries. His debut album on Emancipator’s Loci imprint, Drum Therapy, was met with critical acclaim, thus leading him to land a second album on the label in 2016 that most would say conquered the Sophomore slump.

Tor will be making his Lightning In A Bottle debut come Memorial Day weekend, where he will be delighting his crowds with a multifaceted performance. Before seeing him, however, he decided to make an official “introduction” to his work:

“I wanted to make this mix as bit of an introduction for people who maybe haven’t heard my music before, mixed in with some songs I’ve been enjoying lately as well as a showcase of what I’ve been up to recently with some unreleased remixes and hints of what you might hear at my LIB set this year. Cheers!”


Tracklist:
Tor – Two Suns
Tor – Two Suns (CloZee Remix)
IHF – Departure
CloZee – Secret Place (Tor Remix)
Tourist – Hush
Maya Jane Coles – Bo & Wing
Nuage – Every PPL
Tor – Vaults
??? – ??? (Tor Remix)
RUFUS DU SOL – Innerbloom (Tor Remix)
??? – ??? (Tor Remix)
Edamame – Sable (feat. Tor)
Affelaye – Whir

The Do LaB always runs a welcome oasis amid the Coachella chaos, fostering a chilled atmosphere with the most cutting edge house and tech talent set within their stage’s shady confines.

It feels like the company, which runs festivals like Lighting in a Bottle, Lucidity, and the Dirtybird Campouts, outdoes itself with its artist bill each passing year. They’ve booked a heavy array of talent across both weekends of Coachella’s 2018 edition, the likes of which include Ardalan b2b Sacha Robotti, Chris Lake, Lauren Lane, and Kasbo on Weekend 1. Meanwhile, Weekend 2 boasts Israeli talent Behrouz, alongside Brasstracks, John Monkman, Thugfucker, Patricio, and more.

The 2017 Oregon Eclipse Gathering: An event in totality [Event Review]

This post was originally published on this site

As thick dust clouds covered the secluded desert terrain of Big Summit Prairie, Oregon, flocks of eclipse chasers converged onto Ochoco National Forest with its 360 degree views of mountainous pines for the Oregon Eclipse festival that would soon unfold. Their ultimate mission was to view the magic of totality, which occurred between 9-10am on Aug. 21, 2017, among thirty thousand like-minded people.

In an off-year of their globally renowned festival, the producers of Symbiosis Gathering teamed up with 13 of the world’s premier independent festivals — Lightning in a Bottle’s Do LaB (California), Rainbow Serpent (Australia), Sonic Bloom (Colorado), Origin (South Africa), Envision (Costa Rica), Beloved (Oregon), and many more—for a seven day global synaesthesia of art, ideas, music, dancing, community, and profound transformation.

An international melting pot of people were represented at the festival, including infants perched atop their mothers’ chest, families of four or more enjoying “Kids-biosis,” and retired burner folks with their decked-out light-up walkers. In addition, strangers speaking every language from French to Japanese at the Sky Stage as it pumped deep desert house, and Native American tribes and spiritual leaders from the countries of Ecuador, Columbia, and Peru were in attendance.

Tribes from Standing Rock also traveled to Ochoco to give political demonstrations at the organically constructed arena, 1Nation Earth, as well as to ignite the three sacred fires placed throughout the festival grounds. One female shaman even journeyed from Okinawa to conduct ceremonial water blessings, in which she anointed willing participants.

Every installation paid such keen attention to detail that it was hard to believe most of Oregon Eclipse’s structures were constructed from raw materials used from the very land that housed each structure. Old moss covered branches and rocks formed the pathways and walls of the festival’s many temple-esque domains, with curtains draped from the ceilings, and walls of stained glass windows suspended into thin air. Sacred geometry artwork was the centerpiece of most installations. Live painters abounded, while Burning Man installations made guest appearances.

Symbiosis’ bold endeavor far exceeded any expectations, despite having never received money from a sponsor — ever. The production was massive and breathtaking, because this independently-assembled team of unique global collaborators constantly pushed out maximum effort to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience during the entire process. It’s safe to say they achieved their goal. Installations and exhibits were being completed all throughout the week, even as attendees arrived day-by-day. Construction never really ceased, nor did the grounds ever stop growing. Ochoco remained a constant collaborative community at all times, whose psychedelic installations came alive at night.

As for the festival’s music lineup was held across seven stages: one main, four slightly more specialized stages, and two stage dedicated solely to live performance.Its main musical attraction, dubbed The Eclipse Stage, was utilized as a gigantic harp suspended from the tips of the stage onto its side structures that also would become integrated into live performances throughout the week. This stage hosted Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Random Rab, TroyBoi, The Glitch Mob, and many more.

The infamous Desert Hearts clan participated in a 5-hour takeover on The Sky Stage, pumping deep, dark tech house into the forest and hypnotizing house heads there with pulsating shamanic drum rhythms. Meanwhile, Dirtybird player Justin Martin delivered a 4-hour extended set of soul-penetrating house and techno that lasted into the wee hours of the morning.

But, make no mistake, the house stage DJs were guests in this global arena of trance and downtempo. International eclipse festivals are generally based around trance and downtempo insofar that the bass, jam, and eclectic circus acts were actually guests in this experience. In fact, The Sun Stage, which housed the beautiful blue spaceship-like structure used at the LIB gathering, pushed psy trance until 6am everyday. Even if you didn’t come for the trance, as one attendee put it, you were getting dosed with it daily anyway — courtesy of the full FUNKTION ONE system populating the stage.

While the sun baked the Prairie well into the high 80s each day, The Earth Stage pumped world-influenced glitch into the freezing desert nights, which reached into the low 40s. The Moon Stage served as the festival’s bass head haven, housing Bleep Bloop, French glitch supreme Clozee, EPROM, Minnesota, and, of course, Lorin Ashton’s coveted secret ‘West Coast Lo Fi‘ set.

As far as transformational festivals go, the Eclipse Gathering raised the bar on all counts. In workshop spaces like The Parlor and The Hub, lectures and dialogues ensued over mind-expanding topics ranging from permaculture, nutrition, and consciousness, to elemental alchemy, psychoactive substance, sexuality, and astrophysics. Entire structures were dedicated to yoga and dance shala, where hourly sessions were held of everything from bass yoga and vinyasa flow to belly dancing.

Each interactive installation offered diverse round-the-clock activity at every turn. The Mud Dance Experience, for example, invited attendees to strip down to their skivvies and bathed each other in wet clay. The Sound Immersion Experience, housed hammocking meditators in a 360-degree healing cocoon of sound emanating from surrounding gongs and dijiridoos.

Perhaps the most inspired interactive digital attraction was Android Jones’ MICRODOSE VR dome installation, which opened up each night after dark. Participants would enter the large, white structure for a 30-minute sensory-engulfing cinematic experience featuring Android Jones’ psychedelic artwork coming to life before their very eyes. The kicker: the ‘film,’ of sorts, was being controlled by four audience members in virtual reality.

Then, of course, there was the main event. Most attendees stayed up through the night to experience the event in totality. An early Random Rab sunrise set was going off just before, as ecstatic hippies performed yoga in the morning sun. Hot air balloon rides peaked over the trees as they tethered over the grounds’ massive lake. Picture-ready burner clans turned up decked out in their flashy garb, as giddy festival goers filed the space between the sacred Sun and Moon Temple grounds wherein the native tribes lit their final sacred fire.

As morning turned into night, birds scattered, temperature plummeted, the sky went dark and eyes swelled as a ring of fire filled the sky. Attendees stood in awe as if a portal had opened up into another universe. A Woodstock-esque character shook his maracas. A young infant looked bewildered in his stroller. Delirious party-goers clanked their mimosa glasses. Strangers embraced, tears fell, and a deep sense of gratitude filled the air — Oregon Eclipse attendees had finally manfested what they intended to do, learning that the power of intention was the most important takeaway on these sacred grounds.
