As usual, Coachella opens the new year with a bang. The festival’s full 2020 lineup has been revealed, and as promised, Rage Against The Machine, Travis Scott, and Frank Ocean top the bill, followed by a massive cast of today’s top acts…and a few surprises. Calvin Harris will return to Coachella, where he once commanded one of the largest crowds in the event’s history. The lineup also features Disclosure, Madeon, Louis The Child, Big Sean, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX, Run The Jewels, Lana Del Rey, and more.
This year’s lineup bears a particularly impressive electronic showing from across the spectrum—deadmau5 will perform as Testpilot, with TNGHT, DJ Koze, SLANDER, Peggy Gou, Lane 8, Fatboy Slim, GRiZ, TOKiMONSTA, and more. Notably, the lineup features the long-awaited return of A-Trak and Armand Van Helden’s beloved Duck Sauce project, and not the My Chemical Romance reunion many were expecting. Coachella’s two weekends will run April 10 – 12 and April 17 – 19. See the full lineup below.
With its inaugural year in the rearview, HiJinx Festival will return once more to the Pennsylvania Convention Center for a second year of unmediated momentum. From December 27-28, HiJinx’s bass itinerary will position headliners Bassnectar, Excision, Slander, Skrillex, Zeds Dead, Porter Robinson, and GRiZ before the crowd assembled in Philadelphia.
A wonderland of low end artistry, HiJinx’s 2019 lineup additionally includes DROELOE, who recently wrapped their past, present, future EP series with the release of A Promise Is Made, CloZee, Big Wild, and dual riddim and dubstep experimenter, Subtronics, who partnered with GRiZ on the floor shaking “Griztronics.” Zion I, Kittens, SoDown, and The Underachievers will also cater to bass enthusiasts with resounding sets over the course of HiJinx’s two-day 2019 run.
To ready attendees for what will be, for some, the final festival of the decade, Dancing Astronaut has coalesced original productions from all of the artists slated to play HiJinx in one sprawling pre-event playlist. More information on the sold out event can be found, here.

We are one month away from one of the most exciting parties to hit in the Caribbean. Holy Ship! Wrecked will start the new year off right with their 4 day/ 3 night all inclusive land party at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The party will start on Wednesday,

2019 has been a remarkable year for new music.
The past twelve months brought with them a collection of highly anticipated LPs: Madeon‘s Good Faith, Avicii‘s posthumous Tim, Gesaffelstein‘s Hyperion, Illenium‘s ASCEND, along with a Flume mixtape. Notable collaborations like REZZ and Malaa‘s “Criminals,” Seven Lions, Wooli, Trivecta, and Nevve‘s “Island,” and GRiZ and Subtronics‘ “Griztronics” hit the airwaves in blazes of glory. Supergroups like Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize) and Get Real (Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet) showcased the power of doubling up on brainpower. And, of course, countless singles had us hitting repeat more times than were calculable: Dillon Francis‘ “Still Not Butter,” i_o‘s “House of God,” Habstrakt‘s “De la Street,” Alesso‘s “Progresso,” and so many more.
In no particular order, we present a 30-track collection of our favorite songs of the year, chosen by DA writers and editors.
Now that Ultra Music Festival has confirmed its return back to Bayfront after its 2019 outing to Virginia Key Beach Park, the festival has started to drop 2020 festival news, heightening the excitement for the festival’s return. In September, Ultra unveiled its 2020 promotional theme, “We Return Home,” and now organizers have announced that for the first time, NGHTMRE and SLANDER‘s label Gud Vibrations will takeover the UMF Radio Stage.
NGHTMRE and SLANDER have played Gud Vibrations shows together at Ultra festivals across the world, but this will be the first time the label will take over a stage at the Miami iteration of the festival series. In Ultra’s announcement of the label takeover, they promise the stage will showcase “high-energy bass.”
It has yet to be seen whether NGHTMRE and SLANDER will perform as separate acts on the Gud Vibrations stage, together, or whether they will do both a separate and joint performance to celebrate their label’s takeover. Gud Vibrations has curated some of the scene’s best bass music as of late, including enlisting Habstrakt for his label debut with “De La Street.” WAVEDASH and Shadient are other frequenters of the label. Time will tell which acts will be featured on the stage, but the announcement certainly builds the anticipation for Ultra’s forthcoming lineup announcements.

The track floats in a haunting air of monstrous, glitched out ad libs below KARRA’s eerie vocals. Building up to its calculated demise, the perturbed vox cuts out while thrashing bass bellows amongst sharp percussion cuts for a headbanger’s euphoria. Sustained bass creates an atmosphere of prolonged rage, adding to the track’s emotional weight.
Announced alongside the single is an NYC show on January 17 at the Great Hall at Avant Gardner. The headlining event will feature THE EYE production, which was also announced for their January 31 and February 1 shows at the Shrine in LA.

Headliners, EDC Orlando 2019 is officially less than a week away and that means it is time to officially prepare your setlist schedule. Set times were released a few days ago, so you can freely choose which artist you want to see and what times they are scheduled to perform. If you didn’t already know,
Habstrakt had a wild close-out to summer 2019, releasing “The One” alongside an official music video and tour announcement. Since then, the French producer has earned a spot on 1001 Tracklists’ Top 101 Producers list and is currently on his fall headline tour, ultimately taking him through four countries and more than 20 different cities.
To add some fuel to the live show, Habstrakt recently remixed NGHTMRE and Slander‘s iconic track, “GUD VIBRATIONS.” However, he’s stepped aside to let some other producers do the remixing with The One (The Remixes) EP. This batch includes reworks from NGHTMRE, Basstrick, Asdek, Effin, and more.
Released on thriving imprint Monstercat, fellow French producer Basstrick delves into a trap edit, while NGHTMRE’s take is one full of heavy dubstep. Checking off some other genres, Asdek (another French native) provides a bold house beat, while Effin sticks to his roots with dubbed lead synths on the drop. The EP also includes remixes from Unlovable and 22-year-old producer Nitepunk.
