Seismic Dance Event is a new festival hosted by local Austin, Texas promoter RealMusic Events. Known for their house-oriented electronic lineups, Seismic Dance Event seems to the pinnacle of their love for hard beats and dirty grooves.
The “Flash” producer recently met Claude VonStroke at the decks of Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas, where the two tech house heavyweights doled out a b2b set that functioned as a clear testament to the city’s status as the entertainment capital of the world. Fans of the DJs can take a trip to “La La Land” via the newly released live video of the set.
The producer’s patriarchal presence in the house and tech scenes began after the release of 2015’s wall-to-wall club track “OKAY.” Since, he has embarked on world tours and worked alongside some of the most prestigious names in his respective genre, including Dirtybird label head, Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet himself, for their collaborative 2017 EP, Fearless.
The four-track extended play, Off To Funk, features two original extended cuts, as well as two coinciding, shortened club mixes. The EP sees Shiba embrace the deeper, classic Chicago style house and tech elements that are so very characteristic of Green Velvet and the Relief imprint. In “Back To Funk,” a deep bass line thumps alongside rattling hi-hats and the repeated sample chop, “Back to funk/Freak the funk.”Comparatively, “Off” proves more melodic, with a colorful, highly texturized synth line alongside a crooning female vocal cut. Coming in with four new, satisfying club-ready house products, Shiba San has found a fitting home away from home on Relief’s roster.
Insomniac added over 25 new artists and 14 events to the fifth annual EDC week in Las Vegas, coinciding with the festival’s 22nd annual installment.
In doing so, the festival welcomes 14 signature party experiences during the week of May 16–23, including the hardstyle focused Basscon Pool Party and two dubstep-fueled Bassrush parties, along with a variety of diverse headliners throughout the week. New programming includes a vast array of parties across the cities hottest nightclubs, including Elephante, Porter Robinson, NGHTMRE, Gryffin, Hot Since 82, Illenium, Yellow Claw, and many more.

Creamfields announced their 2018 lineup and it’s looking to be behemoth year for the Cheshire-based extravaganza. Rich in both depth and considerable breadth, the festival will bring together 300 artists across 30 stages from August 23–26.
Techno don Carl Cox will be making his return to the festival for the first time in over a decade, where numerous other artists will be making an appearance, showcasing the festival’s keen ability to tap into the full spectrum of dance music. From artists like Skream, Kölsch, and The Black Madonna, to The Chainsmokers, Tiësto, and Above & Beyond, Creamfields 21 promises to be an unmissable installment for all dance aficionados.
It’s hard to believe that Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet‘s Get Real collaborative project began as a mere accident. But with their seamlessly integrated sets and similar midwestern backgrounds in mind, the real mystery is why this institution’s inception hadn’t happened earlier on.
Each artist propels their penchant for deep and tech house in the Get Real project. Presently, the two are taking Get Real on a tour of the U.S. Ahead of their performance at Art Basel, which officially kicks off the Get Real tour, VonStroke’s released an exclusive Club Space Miami mix. Surely, the mix is a delightful testament to the mastermind and in the hour-long journey, it’s music that’s plenty easy to get real lost in.

Deadmau5‘s struck an underground gold mine, and luckily, he’s happy to share the wealth.
After an exciting string of announcements amidst the mau5’s final BBC Radio 1 residency show, the big cheese has thrilled fans with a more immediate gift. Fans of deadmau5’s radio show can relish in a complete collection of the music the artist slung out over the course of the last year thanks to the amusingly-named Spotify playlist “for a lack of a better playlist.”
From the music of Pryda, Gallya, ATTLAS, No Mana, Josh Butler, Rinzen, and many more, Mau5trap‘s gathered together the show’s complete 207-track long list that’s plenty easy to get lost in for 22 hours and 42 minutes if one feels so inclined.
Mau5trap’s looking towards an eventful new year. With fresh music from Joel Zimmerman, a new show, new signees, and more, it’s a good time to be a fan of the label, indeed.
