Live Set: Ferry Corsten B2B John O'Callaghan @ Tomorrowland

Saturday was my favorite day of Tomorrowland with stellar performances that encompassed everything from Dark Techno to Uplifting Trance to dirty House music. The Trance & Progressive outpost for the day was held down in one of the tents by none other than Ferry Corsten, where he played back to back 15 minute transitions the whole day with Shogun, Aly & Fila, Cosmic Gate, Sied van Riel, W&W, Solarstone, Orjan Nilsen, and of course JOC. It was a great thing to see Ferry on European grounds where he is of legend as a Trance producer and DJ, not one of Electro and House as his current North American persona would convey. Though his closing set gave the tent more of an Electro vibe than it had all day, it was nonetheless an awesome close to one of the best days in dance music history. Give a listen to one of my favorite sets of the weekend as Ferry takes you away playing B2B with Irish powerhouse JOC then goes in for a solid closing set!

"I'll Follow" (Tomas Heredia Remix) - John O' Callaghan [Free Download]

Everybody’s favorite uplifting Trance DJ from Ireland John O'Callaghan has decided to treat us and make Tomas Heredia’s remix of "I'll Follow" available for free download via his SoundCloud page. Heredia's take is a bit softer and more melodic than JOC's original mix, but he does an excellent job of building the track around Ria's vocals and using them to bring everything else together. As much as I enjoy the original mix of, I think this remix is even better.

5 Mixes to Get You Pumped for Electric Zoo 5

Festival curation is a gift often overlooked, and today Made Event came through in more ways than imaginable for the third phase of the Electric Zoo lineup. Phase II had all the bases covered with headliners representing the best of bass, Tech, and Electro - but that was just the beginning. While I will admit that there isn't a genre-specific flow to a lot of these stages, it really doesn't matter with the talent that's been confirmed. You'd think it'd be hard to get me excited over something so far away with over five festivals before the big hurrah to end the summer, but this schedule is seriously slick. To get you all as stoked as we are we've compiled a few mixes representing the best new zookeepers added to this year's roster.

John O'Callaghan

If anyone's going to transition the vibes from bass to 140 JOC's the man to do it. His style is all about the pressure between vocal rifts and the thrust of relentless basslines that hammer the sounds through the crowd. As Ireland's top DJ, John forged an alliance with John Askew's Discover early on in his career which paved the way for him to rank 24 on DJ Mag's Top 100 by 2009. Later that year he established one of Armada's most successful sub-labels Subculture, which has since provided a haven for him to harvest talent specific to his driving sound. Kick off the festival bright and early Friday with JOC at the Hilltop Arena!

Orjan Nilsen

One of Armin van Buuren's closest allies has also been giving him a run for his money. The artist has demonstrated since 2011 his knack for commanding a main stage crowd with the sounds of Trance & Progressive as one of the scene's biggest breakthrough artists, but his history goes much deeper. As a native of the polar region of northern Norway, Orjan used the isolation to his advantage picking up the keyboard at age seven and later moving on to synthesizers as a teenager. His productions fluctuate widely between old-school rave Trance and Electro "Trance 2.0," but he's never afraid to throw a curveball with chunkier basslines and a shade of Tech. I'll be excited to see him for the first time Friday at Main Stage East!

Nicole Moudaber

The Tech vixen caught my attention on a sweaty day the first weekend of Ultra when I was wandering stages and found my home under the sprawling MegaStructure. Since then I've been hooked to her inescapable groove that straddles the dark and groovy sides of Tech House in a way that's quite indescribable. After her widely celebrated album Believe, Nicole's been ripping up stages from Cielo in New York to the huge clubs of Ibiza. Over Memorial Day weekend Nicole pulverized the cavernous Underground stage at Detroit Electronic Music Festival in one of the headiest sets I've heard this year. And her hair is awesome. Catch Nicole Sunday with Drumcode co-conspirator Adam Beyer at the Sunday School Grove.
