Electric Island Toronto Concludes 2016 Season with a 2 Day Showcase

EIToronto3
Torontos’ electronic music picnic and concert series, Electric Island, is set to conclude this Labor Day weekend.  For the first time since its 2013 inception, Electric Island will be spread across two days on Sept. 4th and 5th. The closing weekend will feature an array of acts from the likes of Dixon, Âme (LIVE), Get Real (Green Velvet b2b Claude Von Stroke), Loco Dice, Fatima Yamaha, Nicole Moudaber, Bicep, Guy J, and Justin Martin blending across a series of House and Techno with a splash of Electronic Pop to keep attendees on their toes.

Following the massive success from The Civic Holiday weekend in early August that drew well over 6,000 music lovers and making it one of the most memorable series to date. It is safe to say that the momentum will only carry forward into this weekend as local and international festival-goers will come to celebrate the rise of Toronto’s House & Techno scene, much thanks to the organizer’s relentless effort to push forward on this vision and making the city a bucket list destination for music travelers from around the world for many years to come.

Toronto is a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic CN Tower. The city also has many green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo. Toronto is also known for their great local dining options and outdoor/indoor farmer’s market style such as the St. Lawrence Market. You can be sure we’ll be arriving there a few days early to soak up the city vibe before making our way to Queen’s Quay for the closing weekend of Electric Island 2016.

For tickets, travel info, and more please visit the official Electric Island website.

Paco Osuna, Nicole Moudaber and Matador Are the Latest Ambassadors for Richie Hawtin’s PLAYdifferently MODEL1 Mixer

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 7.31.54 PM

It was just at the beginning of this year that Richie Hawtin unveiled his latest project to the rest of the world. Alongside Andy Rigby-Jones and Allen & Health, the Windsor-born producer, label head and DJ introduced PLAYdifferently’s MODEL1 Mixer, aiming to revolutionize the way DJs perform.

Throughout the prototype testing, Hawtin enlisted the assistance of several other elite DJs in trying out the product, all of them endorsing it as true ambassadors of what they felt was a truly unique and much needed new addition to DJ gear market. Later, PLAYdifferently welcomed Dubfire, DJ Tennis, Chris Liebing, Maceo Plex, Mike Servito, Hito, Loco Dice and many others to join Richie on his Prototype Tour across the world performing exclusively with the new MODEL1.

Now, this illustrious group of artists is joined by Nicole Moudaber, Paco Osuna and Matador, the latest ambassadors to have endorsed PLAYdifferently’s vision and MODEL1 as an ideal mixer for both DJ and live sets. Together with this announcement, PLAYdifferently has also introduced a key technology partnership with one of UK’s most renowned nightlife brand and venue, The Warehouse Project in Manchester. The goal with the collaboration is to allow a wide array of artists to have access to Hawtin’s first released mixer at several elite events yet to be specified.

Each of the new ambassadors had the following to say regarding their involvement with the project:

“Finally a refined mixer is available. It was instant love when I played the MODEL1 in Palm Springs. The sound experience and attention to detail implemented is second to none. This 6 channel mixer is a game changer for the DJS who seek to enhance their sets as well as playing back to back.” – Nicole Moudaber
“I’d been searching for the right analogue summing mixer to glue together all the elements in my live set, something that could also give me hands on control with certain familiarities. The MODEL1 has become the centre-piece, the engine room for my live performances, delivering next level sound and opening up sonic possibilities & techniques that I could only dream of in the past, a truly inspirational piece of kit!” – Matador

“It’s important to have a tool that facilitates the musical expression as MODEL1. The features of the mixer allow me to be much more creative; as it has such precise equalisation and such a great range of frequencies, I get to keep using many more tracks at once without making the mixing sound too stuffy. Also, for me it’s essential that all channels have a filter, be it independent or general, as that way I can use six channels at once; and by using the general filter the sound is uniform and compact. The tool I need to maximise my creativity when I’m DJing is finally here!” – Paco Osuna

You will be able to see some of the industry’s best name in action from the comfort of your home or office, no matter where you are in the world: Luciano, Chris Liebing, John Digweed, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha, Adam Beyer b2b Ida Engberg, Joseph Capriati, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, Pan-Pot, Kerri Chandler, Loco Dice, Carl Craig, Nina Kraviz, Marco Carola, Matthias Tanzmann, Joris Voorn, Josh Wink, Monika Kruse, Marco Bailey, Danny Tenaglia, Francois K, Masters At Work, Yousef, Kölsch, Tania Vulcano, Cirez D, Guy J, James Lavelle, Cirez D, Carlo Lio, Julio Bashmore, Catz N Dogz, Davide Squillace, Hot Since 82, Deetron, tINI and DJ Sneak are all scheduled to play.

EDC NY Line-up Includes Chris Liebing, Hot Since 82, Mind Against and More

EDC NY

Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival is always an eclectic affair, and while the line-ups are definitely EDM-heavy, Pasquale Rotella and his team have always found space to give their fans some techno and house.

This year’s New York edition will take place on May 14th and 15th at Citi Field. Insomniac just released the complete line-up for 2016 and it includes some heavyweights of the current “underground” scene.

First up, in alphabetical order, is CLR boss Chris Liebing, a New York City favorite who is bound to bring a darker side of techno to the festival. Chicago’s Green Velvet, a regular Insomniac guest DJ, will also be making an appearance as will Hannah Wants.

Hot Since 82 is set to bring his Knee Deep in Sound brand to New York, possibly as the head of a stage showcase, as is Nicole Moudaber with Moodzone. New York’s very own Lauren Lane and The Martinez Brothers will also be performing, joined by Life & Death’s Mind AgainstPaco Osuna, and Technasia.

Last year’s edition included illustrious names in techno and house such as Carl Cox, Art Department, Joseph Capriati, John Digweed, Luciano, Âme and Dixon.

Tier 1 tickets have already sold out. Tier 2 is currently on sale for $229 plus fees – layaway options are also available. See the full line-up below.

Review: Nathan Barato – Everytime I See You EP [Hot Creations]

Nathan-Barato-Everytime-I-see-you-artwork
Nathan Barato’s latest work, ‘Everytime I see you’, is out today via Beatport with remixes by Volkoder and Techno Queen, Nicole Moudaber on the Hot Creation imprint adding yet another stellar label under the Toronto based artist’s belt. The 3 track EP showcases Barato’s versatility as he gets deep and hypnotic while laying his signature bassline to keep the floor grooving. Volkoder’s remix gives it a minimal edge and a perfect track to warm up any floor. The final piece comes no other than Nicole Moudaber as she puts down an infectious drive that truly defines a floor moving techno track. Be sure to grab your copy here.

2013 was truly a defining year for Nathan Barato as Nicole Moudaber claimed him to be the stand out Artist at BPM Festival that season. His signature sound and monster sets caught the ears of Music On head honcho, Marco Carola, and offered Barato a summer residency that has gained him global support, radio features, and countless demand for his production and remix work. 2014 shows no signs of slowing down as Barato relentlessly spreads his sound with shows across Europe, North America, and Asia. This is a name that we will continue to follow as were already anticipating his next release.
