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.

Jeremy Olander celebrates tenth Vivrant release with a beautifully-fashioned ‘Gattaca’ [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site

Jeremy Olander is one who manifests success for himself by sticking staunchly to his guns. Carefully biding his time after breaking out through Pryda Friends, the Swedish phenomenon grew into his true artistic self through a series of carefully-selected releases and through the foundation of his own imprint Vivrant in 2015.

His moves and undying passion have thus far brought nothing but success, with freedom to release as he pleases and nurture the next generation of progressively-inclined talent, and access to the top of the music industry with accomplishments like his own night at ADE’s 2017 iteration and also a residency at Sound Nightclub that will be wrapping up in December.

The blissful horizon that is 2017’s conclusion officially kicks off with the release of Gattaca, a four-track EP carefully compiled by Olander as the milestone tenth release on Vivrant. Gattaca opens with an impressive title track, which possesses a refined nature that is conveyed through gentle synth work and percussion. Its melancholic, yet hopeful atmosphere is one that Jeremy is expert at creating, and will easily lead to many hands in the air when rinsed on the dance-floor.

“Gaansvort” is even more poignant than “Gattaca,” raising goosebumps with a moving, almost trance-y progression and a soaring breakdown. Nine minutes seem to fly by as the body is quickly entangled in the piece’s intriguing layers and gripping notes.

“Galheera,” which closes Gattaca, is a veritable gem of the EP. Originally dubbed “Bahrein ID 02” by fans, “Galheera” is the type of production that pierces the heart with striking melodies and sweeping background notes that amplify the already heavily bittersweet effect. It serves as a catalyst to introspection and getting in touch with one’s emotional side, transforming dance-floors into deeply bonded communities.

Music made with the heart had a profound effect on the listener, and Olander’s deep process of writing songs translates into an infectious energy that captures hearts and leads to a committed fanbase of Vivrant soldiers. Luckily, the coming months will be bringing his gleeful spirit to many corners of the globe, including a Vivrant showcase at ADE, his final residency stop at Sound nightclub in Hollywood, and various stops across the United States.

Tim Engelhardt – Heart Resonance

This post was originally published on this site

19 year-old Tim Engelhardt has landed himself on top of the progressive game despite his young age. He has an innate sense of musicality that leads to magic in each of his productions — a trait that makes him one of the more recognizable acts of the new generation.

Having released on Diynamic, Vivrant, and even Anjunadeep this year, Engelhardt’s newest EP landed on HOSH’s fledgling Fryhide imprint. Reality is quite the four-tracker, exploring often poignant themes within each track’s melodies, pads, and rhythms.

“Heart Resonance” exemplifies the themes of the EP well, truly leading to goosebumps with its haunting central melody and slow, arpeggiated synthesizers. Chimes and UFO-like samples line the background, adding to the overall forlorn effect that is communicated through the composition. Here, Engelhardt demonstrates his expertise once more at layering sound together in a moving fashion.

Premiere: Rhythm Cult – Brutal (Petar Dundov Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Rhythm Cult, a brand new moniker created by production duo Paul Loraine and Richard Seeley, have earned the supreme distinction of debuting their new work as an outfit on none other than Sasha’s Last Night On Earth label. Thus, Brutal was born — an EP that shows off the producers’ duality across two separate mixes with a lighter, acid house-esque original of “Brutal” that soon gives way into a brooding techno dub mix.

No EP is complete without an expert remixer, and in this case, Petar Dundov was tapped for the job. Having already demonstrated his handle over all things melodic and progressive with releases on Sudbeat and Steyoyoke, the Croatian talent has succeeded in molding “Brutal” into a completely different beast of a track. He builds an airy foundation around the original’s acidic elements, deploying subtle, yet haunting vocal notes in the background to create an even more hair-raising effect. The finished work fits into the LNOE aesthetic seamlessly, and is primed to easily accomplish its purpose of dance-floor destruction upon its October 6 release.

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.
