Events | THROWBACK THURSDAY: The Best of Global Dance Festival 2013

Posted by on August 15, 2013


After finally resolving some site issues and getting the chance to post up in one location for more than 24 hours, I am elated to present to you a recap of Fresh New Tracks’ favorite moments from this year’s Global Dance Festival.

Global Dance Festival is the hidden gem of music festivals, not-so-quietly tucked away between the soaring red rocks a few miles outside Denver, Colorado. This year marks the 11th running of the festival and to this day, Global has stayed true to its motive of keeping things fresh and innovative as both electronic music and the world evolve. Each day of the festival varied greatly from the next, catering to electronic music aficionados of every kind.



Events | TomorrowWorld Lineup + Global Journey Packages Available

Posted by on April 24, 2013


It has been an eventful past few months for ID&T, the people behind such illustrious festivals as Sensation, Mysterland, Tomorrowland and now TomorrowWorld. SFX recently bought a 75% stake in the company for close to a cool 100 million dollars, and then announced the expansion of Tomorrowland globally, landing stateside in Chatahoochee Farms, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta.

Names have slowly been coming out about the lineup that will end up being over 300 names over 3 days. Two stages have already been announced, the “All Your Bass Are Belong to Us” featuring the likes of Rusko, Zomboy, Delta Heavy, Savoy, NiT GriT, Excision, Sound Remedy, Gramatik, Grandtheft and Figure, as well as the Q-Dance stage for hardstyle. Other artists announced so far include, Alesso, Axwell, Porter Robinson, Sebastian Ingrosso, A-trak and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. More info on their website. Travel packages went on sale today, so we advise you plan your trip now to avoid last minute arrangements at awful prices. Don’t forget tickets for US citizens go on sale on Saturday the 27th at 11am EST and on Saturday, May 4th for the rest of the world.

Global Journey Packages

UPDATE: Hardwell & Ferry Corsten & his Full on Stage will be joining the festival.

Electronic, Pop | GRiZ – You Got To Change (Jackson Breit Remix)

Posted by on January 13, 2013

As if GRiZ’s “You Got To Change” couldn’t get any better, Jackson Breit comes through with an incredible vocal remix of the track. The track is the second single off Jackson’s upcoming In The Shade EP that will be released in the near future. The EP will feature Jackson’s vocals over electronic tracks by Gramatik, Breakbot, FKJ and many others. This latest vocal edit reminds me of a funk-filled mondern take on “No Diggity”. No complaints with that. Stream and download in the link below and become a fan of Jackson Breit on Facebook.

Alternative, Chill, Hip-Hop | FKJ-Lying Together (Jackson Breit Remix)

Posted by on December 11, 2012

Jackson Breit packs a “chill” punch in this catchy hybrid track that features elements of hip hop and alternative. Here’s his take on the song:

“Here’s the first single off my mixtape EP that will be released in the winter with vocals over electronic tracks by Gramatik, Breakbot, and FKJ. The EP is called “In The Shade.” This first song is over Lying Together by FKJ because it is one of my favorite beats of the year. It is about my appreciation for the being in the shade, physically and metaphorically.”

Electronic, Events | Bassnectar and Gramatik @ Austin City Music Hall 10/12

Posted by on October 11, 2012

Bassnectar’s fall tour will be making a quick stop in Austin this weekend for the Austin City Limits Music Festival. After the gates close Friday on the first night of ACL Music Festival, Bassnectar, along with Gramatik and Gladkill, will perform at the Austin Music Hall as a pre-show to his ACL appearance at the Honda Stage the next day.

If you recall Pretty Lights’ surprise two-hour long set from last year’s Late Night series, then you know at intimate performances like these, anything goes. It’s bound to be more wild than anything you’ll experience on Sixth Street.

To prepare us for the show, Bassnectar released a heavy hitting mix a few days ago in preparation for his EP release, which is entitled ‘Freestyle’. Grab the mix below and jam out until the show and pre-order the new EP on iTunes HERE.

Be sure to check out Gramatik and Gladkill’s Soundclouds provided below, to get your fix of some sick gliched out hip-hop melodies to get you in the right mind set for the upcoming weekend.



The show is Friday, October 12th. Doors open at 10 p.m. More info here.
