Following the critically-acclaimed world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival, Between Me and My Mind comes to movie theaters nationwide for a special one-night-only screening on Wednesday, July 17. “A few minutes into this intimate look at the creative process of founding Phish guitarist and vocalist Trey Anastasio, it is clear that he is exploding with […]
Pasquale Rotella‘s flagship Insomniac festival, Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) Las Vegas boasted a diversely curated lineup of electronic talent for its 2019 iteration. Skrillex‘s name was not to be found on EDC’s 2019 roster of dance acts—not unusual, as he’s been absent from the festival’s Las Vegas edition for many consecutive years. Despite that, the versatile electronic veteran could nevertheless be found throwing down a surprise set at circuitGROUNDS on the second day of the Sin City affair. Rotella tipped EDC attendees off on Twitter, where he announced that “someone who [hadn’t] played EDC in a long minute” would take the circuitGROUNDS decks come Saturday.
It didn’t take long for those on the ground and those tuned into the livestream at home to speculate that the mystery guest was in fact the Recess producer. While EDC Las Vegas live broadcasted a myriad of the weekend’s sets, Skrillex’s was not among them, which left the fans at home curiously contemplating just what would transpire at the “Would You Ever” hit maker’s unexpected performance. Fans need wonder no more, thanks to one GA hero who recorded Skrillex’s entire appearance at EDC. See Skrillex’s surprise performance below.
Saturday SURPRISE SET!! Someone who hasn’t played EDC in a longgg minute! I’m HYPED! circuitGROUNDS Saturday>10:30 to 11:30
deadmau5 played Electric Daisy Carnival this year without his full Cube 3.0 stage setup — he’s saving that for his fans and doing dates later this year when he can control the venues — but he still threw down like the pro that he is. Watch the full HD video of the set above, including […]
Bitbird boss San Holo is guiding EDC into its final morning over at the Kinetic Field. The Dutch future bass pioneer is primed to bring the energy levels up via his unique blend of sentimental melodicism and a tight, thumping low-end. This set might err to the former of the two traits tonight; on May 17, Holo tweeted that his set would be the “most emotional” he’s ever played, and implied some teary moments were in store. It will likely include new music from his September 2018 LP, album1, in addition to newer cuts from Bitbird signees from the Gouldian Finch 3 compilation.
San Holo has been heavy on the album campaign trail since it released, scoring key performances at many iconic festivals—including EDC Las Vegas. He’s also been confirmed to play San Francisco’s Outside Lands in July.
Where hasn’t Diplo been lately? 2019 has seen peak public expansion of his musical palate, where he’s spun everything from deep house at Get Lost Miami, to country fusion at Stagecoach. The multi-platinum record holder returns to the electronic sound that lent to his breakout years ago for another headlining EDC set. He’ll be playing at the main stage, Kinetic Field, where he also headlined the year prior in 2018, and in 2017 alongside Alison Wonderland and JAUZ.
Diplo shocked fans at Coachella by swapping out his more popular bass get-up for house, leading fans to wonder what he has in store for his behemoth Las Vegas performance. Luckily, they can watch live as the action unfolds. Listen to see if he slips in some cuts off his latest EP, Higher Ground, or his new collaboration with Madonna and Quavo, “Future.”
The moment has finally arrived for Dillon Francis to stir EDC‘s Kinetic Field, with his iconic bass-laden, moombahton sound. His choice slot at the festival’s main stage comes after a series of huge developments on the career front. In the past six months alone, the Latin Grammy nominee went on an expansive national tour alongside Alison Wonderland, ventured further into television with a Fox deal for Gerald’s World, and packed out the Sahara Tent both weeks of Coachella.
Francis also confirmed that This Mixtape Is Fire 2 will make it to digital shelves sometime in May or June—thus, this notable EDC performance serves as a ripe testing ground for new music on the record. The mixtape’s debut was in 2015. It’s also likely he’ll inject his latest anthem with lovelytheband, “Chamge Your Mind,” somewhere in the mix. Listen closely for new dancefloor weapons until 4:14am.
Dillon’s is the stage’s penultimate performer, with Jamie Jones taking over afterward to close out.
After a stellar 2018, REZZ is back on the festival grind with new music to share. The Canadian downtempo space bass boss recently released a new single, “Dark Age,” in preparation for her new EP Beyond The Senses set to drop July 24.
REZZ is known for her cult of loyal followers and hypnotic presence. The drumming low ends pair nicely with haunting melodies curating a contrast of anxiety and power complimented nicely by mesmerizing visuals. Her new project will reportedly “exudes more depth in my songs’ melody and structure.”
To see the REZZ in action at 12:30am Sunday morning (May 19), tune into the EDC livestream below.
NGHTMRE thrives on heavy, trap-inspired bass productions—it’s where he lives. He’s collaborated with a grip of top hip-hop talents, recently dropping a VIP edit of his A$AP Ferg collaboration, “REDLIGHT.” The Gud Vibrations helmer is also fresh off of a heavy bass posse cut with Shaquille O’Neal and Lil Jon on “BANG.”
Last year, NGHTMRE began a new label with Slander, Gud Vibrations. Since then, the label has grown a steady reputation for crafting high energy dance-floor heaters. NGHTMRE’s set, broadcasting live from the Cosmic Meadow at 1:30am PST (Sunday), will surly keep those good vibrations at high levels.
One such artist is Alison Wonderland, who now takes the stage at the Kinetic Field to deliver a dynamic dollop of bass and energy straight into the ears and faces of thousands who’ve gathered hopes of hearing hits like “Church” and “Lost My Mind” live.
Stream her performance live starting at 10:45 p.m. PST, below.
