Electric Forest‘s hometown of Rothbury, Michigan will reportedly welcome the venerated dance music/jam band festival for another 10 years, thanks to the village council’s 5-2 vote on Monday in favor of extending event producers, Madison House’s permits.

The new permit’s body text allows for the potential of an additional early arrival day, which most recently has fallen on Wednesday; though, if Electric Forest’s producer’s comply in supplying the village with ample notice, the festival could begin on Tuesday for its 2020 installment, currently pegged for June 25-28.

The village will also collect a gradually rising surcharge from ticket buyers, to go toward county infrastructure—namely warranted road repairs from prodigious festival traffic. The surcharge will max out at $7.50 per ticket sold.

Council members Robert Fulljames and Village President Scott Beishuizen took issue with some the parameters of the extension. While Fulljames cited Madison House getting the “cheap” end of the deal, Beishuizen pointed out the lack of local vendors operating at Electric Forest in recent years.

Formerly Rothbury Festival (an all jam and rock roster), Electric Forest began in 2011. Organizers recently stretched the festival to two weekends in 2017 and 2018, though recently reverted back to a single-weekend format in 2019.

Electric Forest is coming up on a big birthday in 2020. The festival is set to kick off its tenth iteration next year, and while details have yet to be officially confirmed, it seems Electric Forest may extend it’s current four-day format to mark the occasion. Earlier this year, Costa Rica’s Envision Festival announced expansion plans for 2020 that see the festival extending to a week-long event. Forest faithfuls may likely be in for similarly good news as Rothbury’s Village Council met on October 22 to “review and act on the application for a mass gathering permit by Electric Forest, LLC.”

Additional unconfirmed details from the special meeting signal to extended festival programming hours, early arrival options, and a rumored 10-year extension at the event’s current host venue. The meeting’s official minutes should be made public shortly, though, with Electric Forest’s strong relationship with their host city and a solid track record over the last nine years, chances of an official extension seem highly likely. Stay tuned for updates.

Wuki enlists Ship Wrek for another infectious homage to Daft Punk on ‘Techno Logic’

WUKILEAKS is the (now-not-so-hidden) gem account for DJs across the Internet—a project that started approximately three years ago by Kris Berman—better known as Wuki. The Denver-based producer started off with mash-ups of Busta Rhymes, the Six Flags-famed “We Like To Party” theme, and more, all of which instantly exploded into DJ sets everywhere. One year ago, Berman fused Major Lazer‘s breakout hit “Pon De Floor” with Daft Punk classic “One More Time.”

Now, Wuki gives fans a new take on another masked-robot classic, teaming up with Ship Wrek on “Techno Logic.” The rising LA-based duo are making a ton of noise with their distinct brand of house, adding that flare to the grooved-out bass-line on this new collaborative homage to the French visionaries. Of course, listeners are also welcomed by utter craziness from Wuki under the beloved Daft Punk sample.

Catch Wuki on a packed summer itinerary, hitting Electric Forest on June 29 after a string of shows in Australia, followed by a performance at Yellow Club in Bangkok before stops at Red Rocks (August 10 with Alison Wonderland) and Electric Zoo August 30.

Deadmau5 primed to deliver new Essential Mix as Testpilot

Deadmau5 primed to deliver new Essential Mix as TestpilotMovement 2017 Daily TrevorDernai 34

It seems deadmau5 is perennially hard at work. From consistently live streaming his creation process for fans and overhauling his Cube rig for the third time, to scoring films and pulling double duty at Ultra this year, performing under both his deadmau5 and Testpilot monikers, it seems Joel Zimmerman rarely takes a moment to smell the roses, if ever. Luckily for fans, the Mau5trap head honcho keeps the pedal to the floor, and his latest offering comes by way of a rare Testpilot outing, on perhaps the most renown mix show in electronic music. That’s right—we’re getting a Testpilot Essential Mix.

The BBC Radio 1 mix, debuting on March 23, is actually billed as deadmau5/Testpilot, suggesting that Joel will be flipping between aliases, and a trove of new material is likely underway. The Essential Mix comes hot off the heels of the recent release of Testpilot’s full Electric Forest performance from 2018. Revisit the Electric Forest set below in preparation for one of the most anticipated Essential Mixes of the year.

Tune into deadmau5/Testpilot’s Essential Mix here at 1:00am GMT

A lover of all things analog, Joel Zimmerman indulging his penchant for techno is a perfectly logical next step in the esteemed producer’s career. After launching his Testpilot alias for that exact reason more than five years ago and creating cryptic social media pages under the Testpilot name earlier this week, Zimmerman has shared his Testpilot set from Electric Forest 2018.

Having released just one track on Richie Hawtin‘s Minus imprint and played major festivals such as Movement and Ultra, Testpilot sets are known to be hard-hitting and rare. With his set from Electric Forest now available via Apple Music, fans can now check out the mixed selection of tracks from techno heavyweights Charlotte de Witte, ANNA, Pig&Dan, Cirez D, and more. Spanning over two hours, the set can be a great way to prepare for the Testpilot set at Ultra later this month or relive the high octane moments from the woods of Michigan last summer.
