As we continue to try to wrap our heads around the madness of both weekends of Tomorrowland 2018 more news has started to come out. Over at 1001tracklists they have officially tallied up the total spins on all the songs featured at the festival. It might not come as much of a surprise that Avicii
The EP kicks off with “Unity,” a heavy collaboration with Hardwell. Festival synths and hardstyle rhythms take over, surprising listeners. Nicky Romero’s feature samples The Chemical Brothers‘ “Hey Boy, Hey Girl,” in another hardstyle heater. “Opa” with KSHMR takes advantage of Greek influences using Bouzouki sounds and electro-house rhythms.
“Arcade Mammoth” is as big and wide as the title suggests. Plucking synths that lead into trance synth melodies is exactly what listeners would expect from this collaboration between Dutch duo, W&W, and the No. 2 DJs on DJ Mag‘s Top 100 DJs list.
There are two Bassjackers alliances on the EP, “All I Need” and “The Jungle.” Both combine elements of trap, electro, and bass music using trap rhythms and eclectic synth whomps.
The project culminates with a calmer verse than previous tracks. Around the two-minute mark, listeners are met with that signature hardstyle fans know and love from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. Wiz Khalifa’s vocals add a cooling contrast from the bigger synth play.
Tomorrowland thanks its 2018 attendees for the memories via the release of its official after movie, shared to Tomorrowland’s Facebook page just one day after the two-weekend event’s conclusion on July 29.
The 23-minute production compiles a number of noteworthy Tomorrowland moments, ranging from ticket holders getting temporary tattoos at one of the festival’s activity tents, to confetti filled skies and behind the decks DJ footage.
Those interested can watch Tomorrowland’s official after movie here, and can also stream 49 full-length sets from the festival’s second and final weekend here.
I often get asked the question, “who’s your favorite DJ?”. Any given day I could answer this a variety of ways. I do love every genre under the sun. But one artist always sits undisputably at the top of my life (besides Daft Punk), and that is Eric Prydz. Sweden’s native son knows how to

Alesso broke onto the scene with a multitude of euphoric progressive house hits. Some of the songs are still hailed as the most impressive works in the entirety of dance music. In recent years Alesso has been producing outside of the genres that his fans know to come and love him for, and obviously, this
During Ultra 2018, the entire city was brimming with excitement about the upcoming reunion of Swedish House Mafia. While the reunion was technically still unofficial until the guys took the stage, some very slick guerilla marketing hinted heavily at the reunion taking place. So when fans started to see stickers in the same fashion around
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.
