Tiësto and John Christian team up on new festival single ‘Can You Feel It’Tiesto Jordan Lloyd

It’s hard to know what to expect with new Tiësto releases. The artist has released everything from collaborations with mainstream pop artists to uplifting trance to big room and festival-ready tracks. The veteran producer is back with a new release, this time in the form of a festival-ready hit titled “Can You Feel It” in collaboration with up-and-comer John Christian. The duo previously collaborated on a single, “Scream.” The building beat utilizes synths sonically similar to those used in the ’90s and early ’00s. A twirling melody and echoing vocals layered on top of the track’s constant build then release into a hectic drop that’s perfect for a main stage performance.

Last year Tiësto released an EP spread out over five days during Miami Music Week, leaving fans wondering whether he’s up to similar antics this year. Despite having only released “Can You Feel It” within the past week, Tiësto is now teasing not one but two new releases on his Twitter. One of the forthcoming tracks—a song with previous collaborator Mesto—will be released March 29. He is also teasing a collaboration with Alchemist which will be “coming soon.”

Eric Prydz cancels all Miami performances, cites medical conditionEric Prydz 2016

On Tuesday evening March 26, Eric Prydz officially announced cancellation of all his appearances in Miami including his sold-out Wynwood Factory Pryda show and headlining slots at Ultra Music Festival. In what began as mere speculation, Prydz’s eventual cancellation progressed from the removal of his Wynwood show from the venue website to actual confirmation.

One of the most highly anticipated acts for both MMW and Ultra, Prydz’s absence will be felt, his announcement coming as a shock to many. He posted on Twitter both apologizing and relaying a message concerning “an acute medical condition”.

Pryda ticket-holders will receive refunds and a free week-long pass for pre-midnight entry to Wynwood shows. Prydz was slotted to play a back-to-back with Adam Beyer at Ultra’s new Resistance Island on Friday as well as the ASOT stage on Sunday. With only days left before the festival, the line-up situation for who will fill the gap left by the Swedish veteran still remains unclear, although his presence will surely be missed.
