"EDM Death Machine" (Original Mix) - Knife Party

This one dropped less than 10 minutes ago on the UKF channel in anticipation of Rob & Gareth's follow up to Rage Valley dropping this coming Monday. Today Knife Party are here to assure you that they and they alone will get the final beat in with their "EDM Death Machine" before Wolfgang Gartner's apocalypse comes to a dramatic climax. There will be no Internet friends, no antidote, the human race will be extinct - so get ready to say hello to the robots. Is it just me or does anyone else hear the "Sandstorm" progression at 2:47?

Free Download: Haunted House Anon FM Mix - Knife Party

Say hello to the robot for Gareth & Rob's latest mix in anticipation of their new EP that's due out next Monday. These two are some of the only producers in the scene not guilty of stuffing their repertoires with shit records in the past six months and their third EP and follow up to Rage Valley is surely going to be a smash-hit this summer. The mix starts off with one of their best new tracks "EDM Death Machine" before spinning through 10 IDs, with at least one of them being featured on the new album. The Aussies know how to keep the power up with their new go-to bangers from "Power Glove" to "LRAD," but you've heard all those before. This week the two step up the Electro game and show us their picking skills. Check the tracklist and expect greatness when these hit the festival circuit this summer from Vegas to Electric Forest!

Live Set Download: Knife Party @ Coachella Weekend 1

Rob & Gareth know sure know how to impress with a tracklist, and their set from last night was just the right assortment of hard Electro and bass. Every year Coachella seems to become more of a place for dance music enthusiasts and more of a fashion show, both of which I hope you noticed from watching the live feed last night. The Ultra MegaStructure which last month held greats Digweed, Hawtin, Cox, van Dyk, and more has been stretched out to its full capacity to fit the huge desert crowd in the Sahara "tent." As a desert native I'm not too sure how much fun I'd have packed in like sardines in that weather, but a lot of people seemed to have be having a blast - check out this "Rave Dad" breaking it down. Either way this was our favorite set from last night that we could get a high quality audio rip of, although you sorely missed out if you didn't watch Benassi and Moby earlier in the night (how many IDs can one man spin?). Click for an instant download and enjoy!

Ultra Weekend 1 Editor's Highlight: Main Stage Saturday

Ultra is all about Main Stage memories. There's something magic that happens when tens of thousands of people collide with the pulsating sound, the humid air, and each other with the twinkling lights of Downtown Miami as the backdrop. I've been from LA to Las Vegas to New York and beyond in search of that ultimate main stage experience, which often leaves much to be desired. It wouldn't take me long to say that Ultra has the best main stage of all the US festivals, but that was so last year. This year the lawn at Bayfront Park is about to transform into something never done before. While I admit that we hadn't seen the lineup when choosing between the first and second weekend, I have to say that this is without a doubt the most I've ever anticipated a single day in my life. Festival curation is a gift, and Saturday March 16 is the crème de la crème.

Miss Nine

Starting off the afternoon steamy is one of EDM's hottest female stars. Kicking off her career as a model at the age of 16 in Germany, she soon found her first residency after moving to Amsterdam in 2003, playing alongside veterans John Digweed and more. Flash to 2006 and Nine is at the top of the iTunes dance charts with her massively well-received Yoshitoshi Ibiza mix. Kristin Schorat continues to be a force to reckon with both within dance music circles and the international modeling circuit as an ambassador to Levi's.

Tommie Sunshine

No one reps the NYC EDMC harder than Tommie Sunshine. The veteran House DJ has held dominion over the Tri-State EDM circuit for many years, but in most recent developments has emerged as one of our scene's fiercest advocates. There's no doubt in my mind that Tommie will bring to the table an eclectic set of deep groove when he takes to the Main Stage Saturday afternoon. It takes true talent to bring down the house at 7:00 PM, but that's exactly what he did last week opening for Zedd at Webster Hall. This is Tommie's time to shine and I'm sure he'll impress the crowd with his expertise.

Datsik

Here's where the afternoon starts to really shine. Unlike last year which relegated many of the bass acts to a smaller stage, Saturday afternoon this year is all about the bass. With his Firepower tour now "Reloaded," Datsik has throughout the past few months accummulated a lot of support from up and coming bass acts, giving him a huge advantage in the form of new music to play. And with the Vortex ready for the mainstage, I'm not sure if I'm ready. Datsik may have never played a crowd this big but it will be interesting to see what the notorious dubstepper has in store for the huge party. 

Borgore

Borgore's a simple guy. He likes girls. He likes bass. He likes both together even more. The loudest sets I've heard have all been from this Israeli Doctor of Dubstep, most recently his set for the UKF launch party here in New York City. As a go-to face-melter for the scene for many years, Borgore has in most recent months worked on getting his foot in the door of the emerging Trap phenomenon. Whether you go for the bass or just the booty you'll be drenched by the time it's over.

Flux Pavilion vs. Doctor P

If the sheer excitement I'm feeling right now just from writing these names down isn't enough to convince you, I'll take a stab at it. There's a certain exclusivity of the long roster of tracks these two put out. After you get past the obvious Circus hits "I Can't Stop" and "Gold Dust," these two when combined put on a show like none other. I'll be honest and say a lot of dubstep DJs just aren't good at mixing overall, but this couldn't be further from the case for these two. With a stacked playlist of hits and new tracks at their disposal, on a scale of 1 to 10 this set will be gnarly.

Track of the Day: "LRAD" - Knife Party

It's been since last summer at the South Street Seaport that I've gotten to spend some time getting down to Knife Party, but last night gave me the energy boost I needed until March. The very same people that are bringing us Knife Party back to back with Kaskade and Deadmau5 mainstage at Ultra Weekend 1 had quite the live show for us last night. The wonderful folks over at Ultra have been innovating in the area of live streams for years, and last night's UMF TV broadcast from Buenos Aires brought a lot of surprises. I was speechless watching Armin van Buuren take the decks, but also happy I got to catch some of Rob & Gareth's set online. Since their MixMag mix a few weeks back the two have been slowly pushing out some new material for their sets and all I can say is they're ready for the height of 2013. From "Power Glove" to "Bedlam" (ID) they've been rolling out new tracks like hotcakes while keeping it fresh supporting new releases that have been killing it like "This Is Acid" (Jus Jack & Oza). We can expect a new EP from them by summer but for now the anticipation is high and the energy is overflowing and I want Miami! Everybody in the crowd ______!
