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

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

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.

The bounce-back from his Miami absence is real; Eric Prydz will be unveiling his debut VOID concept show at his Creamfield Steel Yards headlining slot on August 23, 2019. In addition, Prydz was also announced on the stacked phase one lineup for Electric Zoo: Evolved alongside other giants, Dog Blood, Diplo , Excision and more. In characteristic Prydz fashion, the mastermind behind EPIC and HOLO dropped a teaser video for the latest addition to his portfolio of visionary productions. This newest announcement VOID stands for “Visual Offset Isometric Design” and looks to be Prydz’s most advanced hologram shows yet with anticipation at an all-time high.

The 41-second teaser shows a black hole forming in space, coming together to form the “O” in VOID complemented with a signature Prydz progressive sound. The combination of an entire hologram show and Prydz timeless mixing skills has continuously proved he stands as an artist and creative in a lane of his own. Prydz previously brought his HOLO stage to last year’s Creamfields in 2018 and stunned both attendees and fans with his insane, innovative visual production. Now, with VOID he seems to be aim for even higher ground.

Saturday Night Session 004: Kayzo keeps punk rock alive and the energy high in his 2018 Electric Zoo set

Saturday Night Session 004: Kayzo keeps punk rock alive and the energy high in his 2018 Electric Zoo setKayzo Yoder Productions PC

Kayzo‘s music does anything but blend into the current output from the electronic music scene. This is thanks to his eclectic fusion of screamo, punk rock, and heavy-hitting electronic notes into unique productions that continue to stand out as a fresh take on electronic music and pop. He’s maintained originality all through his comeup, placing himself as a particularly unique talent within the current crossover pool.

The LA-based producer is known for keeping the energy high during his live sets, which makes his music perfect to start off a Saturday night with. We’ve chosen his Electric Zoo set from this past fall for this edition of Saturday Night Sessions; it takes listeners through a hectic, but pleasing journey that floats between bringing back pop punk tracks that graced airwaves 10 years ago and steep dubstep drops. Of course, he adds plenty of his own work into the mix.

For those who reminisce back to the days of Papa Roach, The Killers, or even early Skrillex releases, Kayzo is an artist to follow — so get started with this savage hour-long mix.

Kaskade talks new ‘Destinations’ compilation series, the translation of a place into a sound, and plans for upcoming spotlight cities [Q&A]

Kaskade talks new ‘Destinations’ compilation series, the translation of a place into a sound, and plans for upcoming spotlight cities [Q&A]Kaskade Live Credit Rukes

If a specific place could be translated to sound, then just what might that place sound like? Kaskade envisions an answer to this question on his latest project, Destinations: Tulum, the inaugural installment in the producer’s newly conceived Destinations compilation series. Destinations: Tulum debuted on Kaskade’s Arkade imprint in August. The production sought to embody the spirit of Tulum, crafting a sensory listening experience emblematic of the distinctive personality and aesthetic of Mexico’s coastal getaway spot.

The project’s 18 tracks, hand selected by Kaskade, comprise the first edition of the newly minted series and befit both the character of Tulum, and the larger vision of the Destinations concept. Kaskade describes the actualized product as the result of, “traveling the world and becoming emotionally attached to different locations.” Dancing Astronaut caught up with Kaskade just before his main stage set at Electric Zoo‘s tenth anniversary edition in September to chat about the veteran producer’s newly emerging series.


The first installment of Destinations is out on Arkade and it’s a hefty offering. 18 tracks really gives you a breadth with which to recreate that sensory experience of ‘walking through the town’ or ‘sitting on the beach’ as you’d stated was your objective.

Kaskade: Sounds like you listened to it!

It’s a really dynamic concept. When it comes to translating a place through sound, I’m imagining that the song selection process is different for each compilation. So what were you specifically looking for when it came to choosing the tracks for Destinations: Tulum?

I think I was just trying to capture the mood of that. I’ve been to Tulum, I’ve visited Mexico many, many times, and I came up with the idea for the compilation while sitting in Tulum in a cool café which I don’t know the name of, and they had this DJ playing this really chic, cool music, and in my head it sounded like what’s on the compilation now. It’s been a few years, so I don’t know if it’s actually like that, but it paints a picture in your head. It was this really laidback and chill groove, and I’m sitting at the beach drinking lemonade with my family, and hanging out and I was like, ‘this is amazing,’ and I think the idea for the compilation was just to kind of capture that moment.”

But even if it’s changed you crystallized and froze that moment in time. What is it about these locations — Tulum being the first — that make them canvases for upcoming editions of the series?

I kind of have this theory, and a lot of people agree with me, that you’re inspired by what you’re surrounded with, right? People, places, things, food, you know, family, whatever is happening around you. I think the idea for the compilation is just to have moments, sonic moments, that kind of weave this tapestry and make for something memorable. Then later you’re like, ‘oh my gosh yes, this reminds me of this time I went here or when I went there,’ so yeah I started with Tulum, and we’ll see what comes next, I haven’t started on the next one yet.

So you’re kind of making it up as you go.

Producers are reaching out to me and being like ‘dude, Iceland should be next,’ all these cool places that people want to travel and see and I’m like take it easy! You know, like let’s get the first one out. People have been really receptive to the idea, and other producers who want to contribute. Yeah, I don’t have a place chosen yet, but I have a short list going.

Your Chicago roots — might they lead to a Destinations: Chicago compilation?

There definitely should be a Destinations: Chicago, for sure. 100 percent that needs to happen.

Your Redux shows provide a really intimate and immersive live experience. Destinations seems like it could expand and really lend itself well to a live experience, maybe in a similarly intimate style.

That’s the idea, I hope it grows and expands and people are open minded and want to listen to different locations and what they might sound like, all through the filter of my brain. I’m here letting it unravel and seeing where it takes me.

On the subject of travel, what is your absolute, number one go-to travel essential, the one item you can’t travel without, however general or unusual it might be?

I carry a beanie whether its summer or winter, it doesn’t matter. I travel with those compression socks, it’s kind of a unique thing since everyone else is going to say the same thing, iPhone whatever. But I travel with compression socks, I started doing that before it was cool because now everyone makes compression socks, Nike makes them, Stance, I travel with Stance compression socks since I like them a lot.


While Kaskade returns to the studio to plan the next stop on his musical itinerary, listeners can stream Destinations: Tulum sans jet lag and compression socks here.
