2019 marks the 15th anniversary of world-renowned Tomorrowland Music Festival, and just because this year’s iteration of the fan-facing festival is over, doesn’t mean the celebration of the organization’s anniversary is. Tomorrowland is continuing the celebration with a two-day takeover of Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome during Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). This is the Tomorrowland’s first time putting on a show at ADE, and on Oct. 17 and 18 there will be a two-day specially curated performance united by the theme: Our Story.
The event welcomes some of the biggest headliners from the festival’s history to the event, which includes Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Steve Aoki, and Tiësto, to name a few. The event will also feature the Metropole Orchestra, whose students performed renditions of electronic music classics at the July edition of Tomorrowland.
Our Story takes place over two days, and the Ziggo dome features a 17,000-person capacity stadium. For those looking to attend Tomorrowland’s continued celebration of its 15-year anniversary, tickets are available here.
Steve Aoki continues to diversify his booming portfolio, this time alongside Melbourne bounce force Will Sparks on “Send It.” Aoki’s own vocals are featured on the track, and the duo blend their styles by tethering Sparks’ springy soundscapes to a floor-ready synthesized bassline. The artists’ collaboration brings a welcomed update to the Melbourne sound that Sparks helped popularize while taking the characteristically energetic elements from Aoki’s work.
In true Aoki fashion, the music video for the release features a variety of big names—this time in the form of several action sports stars “sending it,” including skateboard deity Tony Hawk, Olympic snowboarding gold medalist Chloe Kim, and big wave surfer Kai Lenny. The video follows recent music video for Aoki’s collaboration with BTS, “Waste It On Me,” which featured seemingly endless celebrity cameos including Ross Butler, his sister Devon Aoki, and Jamie Chung.
“Send It” is out now via Aoki’s own label, Dim Mak.
Dim Mak boss Steve Aoki joins Will Sparks on an all new festival-ready single “Send It.” By incorporating Aoki’s vocals over a tech-leaning production, the duo brings a much-welcomed update to the Melbourne sound that Sparks helped establish. “Send It” marks the first time the world-renowned DJs have released a joint single. It follows Will Sparks’
Don Diablo has announced his expansion into the comic world with the announcement of Hexagon, a five-part sci-fi series written by the Dutch DJing sensation himself. Hexagon aims to hit the sweet spot between youth and nostalgia entertainment, offering kids an action-packed space-opera with enough retro flair to keep mom and dad interested, too.
The official synopsis reads…
“Don sneaks out with his friends to an all-night game-a-thon with the intention of impressing a girl. Don overshoots the mark, and to everyone’s surprise, on his first quarter ever, he’s able to beat the game everyone called ‘impossible to beat.’ In an instant, his world is turned upside down when his victory triggers an alien invasion and sucks him into an intergalactic battle that has been raging for years.”
Diablo announced the comic book on Facebook on Oct. 1, describing the comic as a dream come true. The first issue of the series will preview during day two of New York’s Comic-Con this week with 200 copies being handed out for free, however, the official launch for the series is set for spring of 2020.
Hexagon is the second series from Impact Theory Comics, the first of which starred Steve Aoki in a six-issue sage, Neon Future.

The über popular 90s anthem “Crash Into Me,” originally penned by Dave Matthews Band, has been targeted by Steve Aoki and Darren Criss for a 2019 rinsing. They’ve taken it upon themselves to transform the folk-tinged rock pop tune into pure bubble gum fit for the modern young listener; the original’s mellowed guitar harmonies are synthesized into the goose-like synths prevalent in today’s EDM and pop worlds, while the pitched-down tempo adds a breezy effect that feels fit for outdoor listening. It might not be the most groundbreaking tune in its arrangement, but the idea of taking two vastly different genres of music and meshing them into one is certainly a fun one and speaks to the collaborators’ interest in evolving their artistry.
Steve Aoki and Darren Criss have made an EDM version of Dave Matthews Band’s “Crash Into Me.” What a truly alarming combination of words to usher us into the weekend! Yes, Aoki, whose concerts are famouslydangerous, and Criss, who is best known for playing a teen in Glee and playing … More »
