Hernan Cattaneo brings proper progressive to Hollywood institution, AvalonHernan Cattaneo

Progressive house’s roots are far deeper than the sounds initially mislabeled by Beatport in the early 2010s. In its original form, the music trancelike, luscious, and driving, with a smooth flow and lengthy songs that induce hypnosis. The music is beginning to thrive like it had when it initially captivated the electronic music community in the early aughts, and much of this is thanks in part to artists like the Argentinian legend, Hernan Cattaneo.

Hernan will be making his way back to Los Angeles for a night not to miss for true lovers of the genre. He’ll be hosted by the historic Avalon nightclub in Hollywood, renowned for its top notch sound system and classic art deco theatre layout. The dance veteran, who’s known for his flawless mixing and ability to control the emotions of any room he plays in, will be playing a special extended set.

He’ll be setting up shop behind the club decks on December 8, so make sure to get tickets here for what’s set to be a night of proper progressive.

Eric Prydz will have gone b2b to b2b…to b2b to b2b with Adam Beyer under his Cirez D alias by the end of the weekend, in a double-pronged series of performances of mythical proportions. Originally announced in August, Cirez D and Adam Beyer’s joint b2b bookings generated considerable buzz among fans of the electronic luminaries, and not without good reason. The duo’s seminal, sold out b2b appearance in March 2018 during Miami Music Week evidenced the pair’s kinetic energy behind the decks, and their unparalleled live presence led many longing for a follow up Cirez D& Beyer booking.

Listeners were in luck, as Cirez D and Adam Beyer announced not one, but four ensuing fall dates. Cirez D and Beyer brought their legendary b2b format to Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on November 23 and 24, and will collectively make their way to a Brooklyn warehouse to play some proper techno from November 30-December 1. Dancing Astronaut has compiled a list of five tracks to set the mood for Cirez D & Adam Beyer’s highly anticipated East Coast arrival.

Adam Beyer – “Your Mind”

A techno oriented, retrospective review of the landmark releases of Beyer’s storied catalogue would be remiss not to mention fan favorite, “Your Mind.” The product of Beyer’s collaboration with Bart Skills, “Your Mind” is an extended, eight-minute effort that entrances with its looping vocal centerpiece, a spoken component that repeats the phrase “you’re losing your mind.” The hypnotizing track– interestingly enough, and perhaps much to listeners’ surprise–was never intended to gain a full-fledged release. The song was born as a tool mix that Beyer and Skills finished at a later date.

Cirez D – “BLACK HOLE”

Even in its acknowledgment of the rate at which, and breadth with which Prydz bestows new music upon his listeners, the title “prodigal producer” still doesn’t seem to be an adequate classifier of Prydz’s momentum. Prydz treated Pryda enthusiasts to a stimulating and meticulously constructed new EP in May 2018 by the name of Elements. The Swedish phenomenon then dropped of a three-track Cirez D EP, DARE U. Of the three heart-palpitation inducing inclusions to figure on the EP, the third and final track, BLACK HOLE, was perhaps the most exemplary of Cirez D’s dark, brooding approach to techno, and accordingly functions as an apt warm up track for Cirez D & Adam Beyer’s Brooklyn bookings.

Adam Beyer – “What You Need”

Tonally lighter than some of the moodier selections that comprise Beyer’s catalogue, “What You Need” is an airy, atmospheric reprieve from tenebrous techno. Pulsating synth work sets the track’s mid-tempo pace, while subtle, short pops of vocal accents lend a sense of variety to the near seven-minute song.

Cirez D – “BACKLASH”

Industrial melodics find full figuration in “BACKLASH.” A master at melding different sonic textures, Cirez D adds a gritty edge to the velvety underground quality of “BACKLASH” to play up sound contrasts. The effect is a general sense of surprise that follows each second of “BACKLASH,” the listener unable to predict the course that the song’s elements might take. Cirez D released “BACKLASH” in 2017, when he released the number alongside another track, “THE TOURNAMENT.”

Adam Beyer – “Stone Flower”

The Drumcode head illustrates the power of intricacy on “Stone Flower.” A tightly woven track that sources much of its potency from a titillating looping vocal two-minutes in, “Stone Flower” layers one constructional electronic embellishment atop another for depth. The result is a clean and refined production that has aged exceedingly well in the years that have followed its 2015 arrival.

Resurrected: HARD Day of the Dead 2018 Review

At the tender age of four, HARD Events said good-bye to one of its most popular festivals, Day of the Dead. Buried six-feet under the earth and grieved by many, the Southern California event was in its infancy, yet showed many signs of promise and many hoped for a long life ahead. Tragically, the festival

HARD Day of the Dead is Resurrected and the Lineup Has Dropped

After their successful 2018 edition of HARD Summer (you can read my review HERE), HARD Events has been teasing at the return of its famed Halloween/Dia de los Muertos festival. Fans have been eagerly awaiting the “resurrection” of the L.A. event and today the ever important line up was revealed ahead of ticket sales. The

UPDATE: HARD has confirmed this lineup is not the official lineup

 

Los Angeles electronic events giant HARD recently made headlines with the return of their once defunct Day of the Dead property, bringing the festival back to its original home at LA Historic Park this November. The news set the rumor mill ablaze, speculating which HARD alumni might make their return for the festival’s re-inauguration, and now a lineup poster has surfaced. At first glance, it looks like one of the most stacked dance billings of the year, though upon closer examination, some minor fractures in the unconfirmed lineup may reveal this one is too good to be true. No harm in putting our eggs in this basket for the time being and hoping it actually materializes though.

The rumored lineup features a rare 2018 performance from Skrillex — fans might remember the last time Sonny Moore rested the Skrillex project to link up with Boys Noize for Dog Blood in 2013, Moore’s comeback performance was at none other than Day of the Dead. Boys Noize is featured on the lineup as well, and anytime Skrillex and Boys Noize are in the same hemisphere, there arises a glimmer of hope for Dog Blood fans. Gesaffelstein is tapped as a DJ headliner and a Bixel Boys reunion in the undercard are some red flags. Again, this could either be the greatest lineup of the season or a certified fake. Deadmau5, Kaytranada, Bloody Beetroots live, and Baauer all make appearances on the rumored roster as well, with a grip of additional dance music power players. For Day of the Dead’s highly anticipated return to LA, we’re betting HARD pulled out all the stops — fingers crossed this one is confirmed official.

New York, Los Angeles, and London will serve as the sites of three concurrent Childish Gambino events the weekend of July 14 – 15, as the “This Is America” producer brings his enigmatic Summertime Starts Here event experience series to each city in staggered intervals.

Summertime Starts Here initially debuted in New York on July 13 at Union Square, and will remain in the ‘Big Apple’ into Saturday, July 14, where the second day will commence at Fort Greene Park from 12-4 PM EST. Los Angeles will also receive the Summertime Starts Here experience on July 14. The West Coast edition of the event will take place at California’s Santa Monica pier from 12-4 PM PST. On Sunday, July 15, Gambino’s nomadic fan event will relocate to Fairfax High School from 12-4 PM PST.

Last but certainly not least, London will also be privy to Summertime Starts Here, with the UK version occupying Gunnersbury Park from 1-10 PM GMT. Although Gambino shared little detail about the specifics of the Summertime Starts Here series, each event will supposedly be free of charge. It is unlikely that Gambino will perform live in each city, given the overlap of the three events, though if any mortal man could do it, it would be Donald Glover somehow.

The Summertime Starts Here run follows the July 11 release of Gambino’s new EP, Summer Pack.
