Imagine walking through the gates of Electric Zoo: Wild Island to the sound of uplifting trumpets, building anticipation and as the excitement mounts it all explodes into a full energetic progressive house chorus. That’s the sound of EZoo’s new anthem ‘Walking With Lions’. Produced by rising Armada star Codeko, the anthem is a perfect balance of poignant lyricism and emotive energy that tells the story of New York’s biggest dance festival. The 20 year-old producer should be incredibly proud of the track he’s created.

“I am honored to have been selected to create this year’s Electric Zoo anthem,” Codeko says, “and can’t wait to drop it on the mainstage”

Progressive House | Bebe Rexha – Drinking About You (The Chainsmokers Remix) [Preview]

Posted by on July 29, 2014

Bebe Rexha - Drinking About You (The Chainsmokers Remix)It is time to turn the page on #Selfie, the disaster that was their appearance on American Idol and everything that had to do with that. The irony of Selfie is that it only made the situation worse. Alas, people are too dumb to realize when they are being made fun of. Time to get back to what got The Chainsmokers their fans who are more interested in the remixed artist then the best Instagram filter for their selfie.

Back with that, they have managed to get music ready for the end of the summer and this fall, despite an incredibly busy summer that has taken them all over the world, with more shows to come, including Electric Zoo. Turning that page they have another single “Kanye” out in a week and then this remix sometime in September.

e zoo vinyl stage 2014

This is an announcement for everyone who was born before 1984 and actually listened to vinyls before they became cool. E Zoo is bringing the second half of the Sunday School experience, the Vinyl Only Stage which they inaugurated at Mysteryland, to NYC for the 6th edition of the festival. The expansion of Sunday School follows the trend of the strengthening underground and a growing popularity for house, tech and techno in the past few years. Each day will be hosted by a different purveyor of the plastic, with Behrouz on Friday, Frank & Tony on Saturday and the legend Josh Wink on Sunday. If you want to hear some crisp, clean vinyl, head to the 6th stage for the 6th year anniversary this Labor Day. Tickets are still on sale so grab them here.

Phase 1 brought headliners like Kaskade, Alesso, Armin van Buuren, Sasha and Jack U to Randall’s Island over Labor Day weekend, but now Phase 2 adds another 60 names to the mix to help fill out the increasingly stacked lineup for Electric Zoo this year. It has been well-documented the increased security measures that E Zoo will have this year, shortening the festival by two hours and adding a lot more on site law enforcement and medical personnel among others. Hopefully though, we will be able to focus on the music and not on all of the headline grabbing things that have beleaguered electronic music this time around, so be smart and read on for the lineup additions which includes names like Jamie XX, Ame, Audien, What So Not and many more. Go on grab tickets, including single day passes if you fancy one day more then the rest.


Events | Electric Zoo Releases Trailer, Extra Security Measures & Pre-Sale Tickets

Posted by on April 30, 2014

The big news coming out of Made Event today is that Electric Zoo finally was issued its permits by the city of New York for this year over Labor Day weekend August 29th – August 31st. That means all of the wild and ridiculous speculation that E Zoo wouldn’t be back can end and the attention can turn to who will be booked and the new safety measures put in place. Speaking of those safety measures, a quick run down: drug sniffing dogs, lots of extra cops & medical personnel, including undercovers in the crowd, big marketing & social media campaign about safety and most importantly, a shorter festival cutting two hours of the day from 11am – 1pm.

So the question now arises, with all of the extra security, will it become suffocating and cause problems or be a net benefit and will you get your money’s worth for you ticket since prices are not going down, even with less acts. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now for $335 so check it out and make the decision yourself. We had a blast day one and two last year, but everyone knows this year will be different.

Electronic, Videos | Andrew Bayer – Need Your Love (Music Video)

Posted by on September 12, 2013

A little throwback Thursday (kind of) here with this video from Andrew Bayer and Anjunabeats. His album “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave” has been my favorite dance music album since “Group Therapy”. “Need Your Love” was just released in a club mix form, making it amenable to the club or festival setting, as Above & Beyond showed at Electric Zoo. The video takes us on a journey through the stunning forests of Southern Poland in the Tatra Mountains. The scenery fits the beauty of the track to a t. If you don’t have the album, check our review here.

Featured, Interviews | FNT Catches up With Ferry Corsten at Electric Zoo 2013

Ferry Corsten @ Electric Zoo 2013

The FNT squad caught up with perennial trance king Ferry Corsten on Friday before his Electric Zoo set — and as always, Ferry had lots of excellent insights into the state of trance, what’s in store for the the scene, and (of course) his buddy Markus Schulz. Before doing anything else, including reading this interview, check out his set below if you missed the vibes. While he played a solid mix of new stuff (including his forthcoming track), he also dipped into the archives and brought out a few vaunted members of the old guard — like 2009’s “Beautiful,” an insane bootleg of the ever-funky “Praise You” by Fatboy Slim, and of course recent Beatport-topper “Gouryella.” And let’s not forget his recent collaboration with Giuseppe Ottavani, “Magenta,” which is certainly old at heart.
