The penultimate day of the final weekend of Tomorrowland 2018 has come to a close, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone for good. People of tomorrow can relive a jam-packed July 28 of the Story of Planaxis to the fullest: Nora En Pure gets deep as ever, Armin van Buuren returns from weekend one for back-to-back mainstage appearances, Virtual Self makes a debut in Boom, and Salvatore Ganacci returns with more shenanigans. Meanwhile, Belgian legends Cherry Moon Trax light up the mainstage with the trance classics that led to the country’s domination of dance in the 90s.
Nora En Pure creates a blissful ambiance in her new house track, “Roots.” Off her upcoming EP, Don’t Look Back, “Roots” pays homage to Daniela Niederer’s South African heritage with chants, shakers, and the occasional didgeridoo. A sultry piano arrangement is combined with gliding percussion and warm strings. The hook comes in with a growling synth, smooth bassline, lost blips, and a house beat techno fans will love.
The South African-Swiss deep house producer has been smashing hits since 2013, playing stages from Coachella to Tomorrowland. She’s released two other tracks off the EP: “Branches” and the EP title track, “Don’t Look Back” on SoundCloud.

From Montreal’s Igloofest, to the gone-but-never-forgotten Brrrrr Winter Music Festival in Toronto, Canadians are incredibly fortunate to host a plenitude of outdoor-winter events throughout the years. Though winter is close to being over and the inaugural start to festival season approaches, Snowbombing Canada is here to remind everyone that there’s never a wrong time to party in the snow.
Fusing the worlds of winter-sports and dance music into a winter-wonderland for four days and nights, Snowbombing Canada takes place from April 5–9 amidst Sun Peaks Valley; one of the hidden treasures of Canada’s West coast. With success in booking distinguished and complementary dance/hip-hop headliners, last year’s event saw Kaskade and Ludacris close out the event.
As the 2018 edition nears, fan-favorite duo ODESZA and hip-hop queen Cardi B are set to headline the “Forest Stage”, appropriately located in between the panoramic views of snow-capped mountains and towering trees. Boasting a plethora of additional acts like Black Tiger Sex Machine, Gorgon City and Troyboi, Snowbombing has curated a detailed lineup that suits the festival’s exuberant vibe.
Snowboarders and skiers are treated to the best of both worlds; shredding during the day and dancing at night. Activities like ‘Alpine Yoga’, ‘The Snowlympics’and some cheeky ‘Chair Life Speed Dating’ add unique attributes that turn guests from attendees, into Snowbombing veterans.
Festival passes, accommodation and transportation are all available online.
As the countdown to festival season continues, Tomorrowland has been gradually releasing the names that will grace the stages of one of the world’s most celebrated festivals. Along with the January announcements that brought on artists like Alesso, Alison Wonderland, Prydz, the Belgian festival has announced the addition of nearly 20 more artists to kick off February.
South African-Swiss DJ/producer Nora En Pure is scheduled to host her very own weekly segment, Purified, on SiriusXM‘s Chill channel. The show is set to premiere Saturday, January 13 at 10 pm ET on Chill (channel 53), and can also be found on SiriusXM’s website. Purified will feature a hefty variety of the more mellow facets of dance music, including indie, nu disco, and of course, deep house.
The task is fit for the trustee, as the deep house maven has proven far more than competent, specifically in house/downtempo DJ and production arenas alike. En Pure has long been creating smooth sensations with her music, entrancing the masses with her 2013 breakthrough deep house track “Come With Me.” Since then, she has eclipsed expectations. In 2016 she was entrusted with curating a two-hour mix for Pete Tong‘s “BBC Essential Mix,” and the next year was the only female to play Tomorrowland‘s Mainstage Daybreak Session.

Since dropping “Tears in Your Eyes”, in my opinion the song of the summer, Nora en Pure has held a special place in our hearts. Prior to its release, the South African-Swiss DJ and Deep House producer made a name for herself on the seen with 2013 hit single “Come With Me”. Daniella has developed
Nora en Pure has her finger firmly planted on the pulse of house music, and newly, a palm on its forehead. The South African-Swiss deep house innovator has yet again evidenced her keen ear for mixing house elements with diverse sonic sounds via “Fever,” a sultry, soulful number that listeners won’t want to sweat out anytime soon. Meshing a soulful male vocal with a thumping groove and steel drum-reminiscent tones woven among the single’s synths, “Fever” is a track that quite simply sizzles.
Funky, soulful and fresh – three words to describe Nora En Pure’s latest single that puts the groov back in groovy! “Fever” has been teased throughout her sets this summer; the track itself is produced in true, Nora fashion – with eloquent, classical synths blending into a deep bassline. Nora continues on her world tour,
