DGTL Announces ADE Programming Featuring Three Consecutive Parties at the Scheepsbouwloods

DGTL have just announced their long-awaited schedule and lineup for Amsterdam Dance Event 2017, consisting of three consecutive parties at their regular hangout, the NDSM Docklands.

On headline duties on Thursday are Russian hero Nina Kraviz and mad musicians Modeselektor. Friday and Saturday will see Paradise and Kompakt take over with label bosses Michael Mayer and Jamie Jones inviting Dubfire, Apollonia, Gui Boratto and Apparat to join them on top of the bill for their respective label nights.

The making of a stellar lineup is combining the old with the new, the heavyweights with the young talents: a skill that the team at DGTL has mastered and will show on their first day when Nina Kraviz and Modeselektor are joined in the first area by Âme, Jon Hopkins and De School’s Oceanic. The second area will be the domain of residents Ryan Elliott, De Sluwe Vos and Fort Romeau.

Paradise is back for round three after two successful edition where they have proven their ability to take everybody to cloud nine. Familiar faces Richy Ahmed, Patrick Topping, Andrea Oliva, Detlef and the boss himself Jamie Jones are accompanied by DGTL x Paradise first-timers Dubfire, Apollonia, Matador, Peggy Gou and Lauren Lane.

After four sold-out editions of DGTL x Kompakt, the label from Cologne returns for what is bound to be another memorable event. Michael Mayer will play b2b with good friend Patrice Bäumel. More musical ingenuity comes from Weval [live], Pachanga Boys, Danny Daze, Locked Groove and Tobias Thomas. The two latter are up for opening duties, and the whole gang will be joined by two special guests, Apparat and Roman Flügel. While both haven’t released on the German label, their quality will elevate the night to a whole new level.

The always on high demand tickets will goon sale on the 26th of July 12.00 GMT+1 on the DGTL website.

Cocoon In The Park Announces Lineup for 2016

CocoonInThePark2

Located in the majestic grounds of Temple Newsam House on the outskirts of Leeds, the 8th successive edition of Cocoon in the Park is poised to continue its strong tradition as a diverse one-day affair with focus on music and production.

Surrounded by typically lush British countryside and armed with a massive sound system, this year’s Cocoon will take place on July 9th and will begin with three back-to-back sets starting with emerging label artists Annie Erez and Bobby O’Donnel. Next up, it will be the turn of Fuse London’s Enzo Siragusa to get on the decks accompanied by Rossko, followed by the combination of Eats Everything and Patrick Topping. The line-up continues with Chicago’s Green Velvet making his first Cocoon in the Park visit as a special guest before handing the booth to New York City duo The Martinez Brothers. Unsurprisingly, the night’s closing duties will be given to none other than the imprint’s leader, Sven Väth.

For those who haven’t been the venue before before, expect a natural green amphitheater with amazing acoustics and the perfect backdrop of the surrounding nature. Ensure you RSVP on Facebook for updated event information.

Best Tracks of the Summer

 

Dennis Ferrer playing Ibiza 2014

Dennis Ferrer playing Ibiza 2014

It’s that time of year. The summer has officially ended, and dancefloors around the world are still buzzing from action packed months. At the end of the summer a frequent question arises, “what was the hit tune in Ibiza during summer?” Well, one could attempt to narrow it down…but we all know that everyone likes a different flavor; so the folks over at In the Mix caught up with some DJ’s in Ibiza to ask what their track of the summer was. Check out the full list of artists and their respective selections here

Groove Armada, Dennis Ferrer, Patrick Topping, Steve Lawler, and others all weighed in on what got the dancefloors moving for them. From the open air parties to Sankeys, there’s a little something for everyone, these are the best tracks of the summer – 2014. Each DJ selecting one track, the final list proves to be a nice blend of throwbacks, new releases, and some original productions from the artists themselves.

My personal favorite…Ze Box, the flipside to D’Julz amazing release selected by Cassy. Hard to beat a summer house tune like that.
