Preview, Progressive House | Eric Prydz – Liberate (Preview)

Posted by on March 10, 2014

Eric Prydz - Liberate

Eric Prydz is the man. What was previously titled the “Waterpark ID” by his ID hungry fans on the torturous Eric Prydz forum (so many unreleased songs, it is hard to deal with) has been given a name by the melodic master “Liberate”. This is the type of a song that makes you feel like you are floating on a bed of cumulous clouds while being gently massaged by a warm sun rays and a steady breeze as you drink a cold mojito. Close your eyes and let Eric Prydz take you away. No word on release date, but it will be the title track from his next EP. Also if you are in Miami on March 27th, you are going to Eric Prydz’s party with Deadmau5 at the Ice Palace, it is just going to happen. It is the best party that night in town, hands down, no questions asked, where do you sign.

Events | Mysteryland USA Announces Huge Lineup

Posted by on March 7, 2014

mysteryland lineup

ID&T’s oldest festival, Mysteryland announced last year that is would be coming to the States, after 21 years in the Netherlands and a few years in Chile. However, once SFX bought ID&T, it was only a matter of time before the move to the US happened and it appears that they are doing it right, using the hallowed grounds of Bethel Woods, where the the 1969 Woodstock festival took place, as their destination. They recently announce their lineup, bringing on a diverse cast of names from all genres.

The main stage will have your usual suspects like Kaskade, Steve Aoki, Showtek, Fedde Le Grand and Nervo, while hosting other names like Oliver Heldens, Dillon Francis and Amtrac. One of the big selling points for the festival was the Sunday School area of the festival, which will have a dominant presence with an all vinyl stage and artists like Joris Voorn, Scuba, Chris Liebing, Lee Foss, Fehrplay vs Jeremy Olander, Dubfire, Tini and many more. Other notables include, Dillstradomus, Chase & Status, Milo & Otis, with Nicky Romero hosting a Protocol Recordings themed opening party.

Part two of ticket sales start this Tuesday, March 11th at 10am EST, so set your alarms. More info can be found on their website here.

DJ-Set | ASOT 650: Dash Berlin Drops New ID

Posted by on February 17, 2014

Dash Berlin is the one of the preeminent trance DJ’s in the world. He routinely kills it with his “ASOT” series. He played so many gems over the weekend. In fact, Hardwell even showed up on his night off which signals he may be experimenting with new genres. What was most impressive, however, was the ID Dash played starting at 11:11. I know we know that voice from somewhere but can’t place it. What I do know is that it sounds like it could become one of the biggest trance songs to release in 2014.

Chill | ID – Moves Like Ms Jackson

Posted by on February 9, 2014

With nothing more than an mp3 file and a cover art, this is how this track was submitted to me from an unknown email address. Too good to pass on, I uploaded it up on my personal SoundCloud to share with ya’ll. “Moves Like Ms Jackson” is a smooth tech house, deep house record incorporating samples from Outkast’s many classics over the years! If you have any idea who is behind this, hollar at me, I need to know! This is hands down a must listen!

**Update: this track is making its rounds on the blogosphere and made its way up on Hypem

Dubstep | ID vs Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe – Fareoh vs Kendrick Lamar & Lady Gaga

Posted by on May 28, 2013



Fareoh just posted a new track off of his upcoming EP/Album fusing some hip-hop with Dubstep to create a melodic masterpiece. Using Lady Gaga’s hook off of her track with Kendrick Lamar called ‘Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe’ to give this tune the right atmosphere for everyones summer adventures. Going with Lady Gaga over Kendrick was probably the better choice in this case, because female vocals always work out best with melodic Dubstep tracks. Make sure to keep up with Fareoh to find out more about his EP/Album release that will be coming soon.

Events, Review, Trance | The Expedition’s Trance Takeover of Madison Square Garden

Posted by on April 6, 2013


Wow, Wichita State is crushing Ohio State. This is not even close, who woulda thunk it. The bartender refills my glass as I watch the Shockers do just that, shock the basketball world and everyone’s bracket. Man was mine totally ruined, but at least I wasn’t the guy who picked georgetown to go all the way — dunk city. I look at my phone, 8:10. I am pushing the limit of how long I can stay at the bar because I need to get over to Madison Square Garden and sneak down past some security guards to a seat that isn’t in the obstructed view section. I close out and head over to the Garden to navigate the line and get inside.

The line is nonexistent, so I walk through and head up to the first level to probe the defenses of the seat security like a prized fighter trying to find the weak spot of my enemy. I see some other people dancing the same dance I am and as a group we would like to thank the kid in the teal tank who was escorted out of section 102 and left the entrance unguarded, letting the stream of approximately me and 4 other kids into the section. Thank you, because my seat put me dead center and I could see the entire arena laid out in front of me.
