WATCH: Kölsch performs a grandiose sunset set atop the Eiffel Tower

This post was originally published on this site

DJ Snake just might have started a trend amongst DJs, as Danish house and techno producer Kölsch is the latest electronic artist to perform atop a Parisian landmark. Rather than performing on the Arc de Triomphe, as DJ Snake did early in September, Kölsch took his music to new heights with a set on the Eiffel Tower.

Fresh off the release of his eerily evocative, autobiographical album 1989, the artist delved into his brand new and incredibly spectacular emotive tunes only to be rightfully met with a stunning sunset. The view of the city was streamed live courtesy of Cercle, a platform that curates magnificent sets in peculiar places.

The legendary performance also kicks off Kölsch’s tour. If this show serves as any indication, it’s one not to be missed.
Kölsch Tour Dates:

Oct 20 Awakenings ADE, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Oct 21 ADE Audio Obscura x Spectrum, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Oct 27 Miami, USA Heart
Oct 28 Montreal, Canada La Bacchanale
Oct 31 San Francisco, USA Audio

STREAM: Carl Cox’s Burning Man set

This post was originally published on this site

Now in it’s 21st year, the mystique surrounding Burning Man and its ability to draw in the biggest names in electronic music have shown now signs of abating. This year was no exception, with contributions from Diplo, Skrillex, and a Burning Man favorite — Tycho’s sunrise set.

One particular guest to Black Rock City that has until now remained rather elusive has been the legendary Carl Cox. Thanks to the folks at The Radio Department, fans of tech-house can now hear Carl Cox’s first-ever guest mix (beginning at the 58 minute mark) on John Digweed‘s radio show, Transitions.

Recorded live from deep within the playa this past September, expect to hear a carefully curated mix of techno and progressive DJs who are pioneering their respective genres, including Dance Spirit, Satori, Markus Homm, Connan Mockasin, Tiefschwarz & Yawk, and more.

Chloé takes us on a celestial journey through the underground with exclusive mix

This post was originally published on this site

Chloé is not one to subject to ubiquitous trends on the electronic market. The classically-trained guitarist and veteran dance music composer is continually searching for depth in both what she consumes and what she creates; this quality mixed with innate talent has carried her career for over two decades.

She is nowhere near reaching stalemate, however, despite her long years as an industry figurehead. In fact, the French songstress is helping break new ground by openly embracing new technologies and sounds that others might feel hesitant to work out. Her knack for innovation gives her music a distinctive edge that has led to a great international demand for her presence.

October 27 will bring about a new milestone: her third artist album, which will be released through her own Lumière Noire imprint. Having taken great time and care to create it, Endless Revisions promises an immersive auditory experience that explores various soundscapes and genres through a cohesive development.

Prior to releasing her album, however, Chloé provides Dancing Astronaut with an exclusive mix showing where she’s currently at musically. She presents an intriguing mélange of psychedelia and deep grooves laced with dissonant vocal samples and eclectic electro elements — all within the span of an hour. As a whole, the mix feels like a a futuristic, otherworldly journey where listeners are opened to her true self.

Nina Kraviz makes exquisitely evocative return on BBC Radio One’s Essential Mix [LISTEN]

This post was originally published on this site

Nina Kraviz made an exquisitely evocative return to BBC Radio One‘s Essential Mix this weekend — her first appearance on the program since her debut in 2012.

Given the decorum of Kraviz, an expansive and revealing deliverance is to be expected. Naturally, Kraviz works on each and every of her artistic endeavors to solidify her vision of her label’s limitless potential. On the latest essential mix jaunt, the former cosmonaut dentist sinks her teeth into the eclectic трип catalog. She manages to include a bevy of unreleased tunes from her labelmates, all while adhering to an extraterrestrial-leaning outpouring of energy.

Opening with Roma Zuckerman’s “Zeroi,” Kraviz launches listeners into an accessible, dynamic deliverance, ensuring with each further track that she and her трип labelmates come in peace.

The Essential Mix lands ahead of the Kraviz’ forthcoming трип label showcase later this fall, one of which is atop a 150-foot high UFO shaped water tower in Helsinki, Finland.

Henry Saiz’ Essential Mix debut is a spellbinding journey across the world [LISTEN]

This post was originally published on this site

Natura Sonoris owner Henry Saiz set out on his biggest venture yet in summer 2016, launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund his very first audio-visual album. Its immersive concept involved the Spanish progressive magnate and his band traveling to unique and particularly magnifying parts of the globe to record vastly different tracks that incorporated various elements of each location within them. Fans rushed to meet the funding goal, and thus the vision has since come to fruition.

Pete Tong and the Essential Mix caught wind of the LP’s completion, and thus invited Saiz onto the iconic series to show off his world travel concept to the world. Moreover, it was his first appearance ever on Essential Mix, marking a milestone moment that shows off the return of progressive to respectability.

Needless to say, the mix was magic in all sense of the word. Immersive and ethereal, Saiz defied genre boundaries and put forth pure, caliber music for two hours. While his mix wasn’t specifically comprised of songs from his forthcoming LP, it was a veritable sonic adventure that served as an excellent preview of what’s to come. Listeners were taken all around the world, from Berlin, to Saigon, to Joshua Tree, and treated to a vast expanse of sounds from each new region the album “stopped” at.

Each new song was vivid enough in its sonic form to conjure intense mental imagery: didgeridoos fluttered around the background of the Australia-themed portion of the mix, stimulating pictures of Aboriginals. Meanwhile, elegant pianos and brooding melodies created a sonic representation of Europe.

Saiz has created a truly profound journey in his first Essential Mix, and  Dancing Astronaut agrees it has the fixings for Mix of the Year.

The Glitch Mob’s Ooah releases his Envision Festival set under his downtempo alias, Of Porcelain

This post was originally published on this site

There are transformational music festivals, and there is Costa Rica’s Envision Festival. Held annually deep in the Latin American jungles, just off the beaches of the Pacific, the Spring time gathering boasts thought-leading workshops, world class yoga, and cutting-edge music. What better place then for a burner like Josh Mayer to pull out a rare solo performance as his downtempo alter ego, Of Porcelain.

Josh Mayer is a man of many talents. As Ooah, Mayer makes up one-third of The Glitch Mob (alongside ediT and Boreta) and one-half of PANTyRAiD (alongside Marty Party). Yet, the music from his long-dormant solo project, Of Porcelain, hadn’t seen the light of day in over four years, for which the multi-talented producer told LA Weekly, “The thing with the Of Porcelain music is that it just hits me at certain times where I have to write it.”

Nearly 10 years have passed since Of Porcelain‘s first album release. Now Mayer has broken his estrangement from his downtempo moniker with a stunning performance at Envision. The set is soothing, entrancing, and ethereal, featuring a track list from the likes of Sasha, Aphex Twin, and Christian Löffler. Additionally, Mayer includes a few of his own productions, such as his newest original track, “And Here I Am Free,” which was premiered here at DA earlier this year.

Listen to Of Porcelain’s solo performance at Costa Rica’s Envision Festival earlier this year.


1. 2814 – Before The Rain
2. Brutalist – He Was A Great Man
3. Of Porcelain – And Here I Am Free
4. Of Porcelain – Shadows In The Sand
5. Schneider TM – Take Me Out Tonight
6. Lusine – Flat (Lusine Remix)
7. Of Porcelain – Awake With Your Eyes
8. Jon Hopkins – Abandon Window
9. Aphex Twin – Avril 14th (Murcof Remake)
10. edIT – Laundry
11. Of Porcelain – Light In Your Eyes
12. Halo – Green & Blue (Koan Sound remix)
13. Holographic Field – Afterglow
14. Jon Hopkins – Sun Harmonics

Carmada are back with a brand new ‘Your Paradise By Night’ mix [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

OWSLA-championed Aussie duo Carmada are slowly but surely making their stateside comeback, which kicked off in August with a joint venture alongside NGHTMRE titled “Embrace,” and a hilarious video short hinting at what’s likely to be a new EP from L D R U and Yahtzel in the near future. An impending EP seems even more likely with the release of Carmada’s Your Paradise By Night mix, stitched together by a handful of new IDs.

Carmada kick off their bout behind the decks with cuts from Delta Heavy, What So Not, and Valentino Khan, weaving through nearly 60 minutes of heavy handed goods from Botnek, Baauer, Zomboy, Pendulum and more. Ahead of Your Paradise Fiji, which is set for later this year from December 6 – 12, the duo patch together an aced hour-long mix worth repeated listens… that is, until Carmada bless us with the new music they have up their sleeves.
