"Black Thong" (Original Mix) - Chris Lake & Michael Woods

I wouldn't expect anything less than a stellar production from these two, but they really picked up the slack on this one. A sexy House mix with a glitchy breakdown, "Black Thong" is sure to get you sweating and stripping off those clothes late into the night. This one was #1 on Ferry Corsten's countdown earlier, and for good reason. With elating piano rift-filled breaks and an upbeat build, this one just pops. The full release is coming soon so keep your eyes peeled because this one is massive!

Tomorrow in AZ: La La Land Music Festival @ PHX Convention Center

Prepare for Electronic Dance Music to take over Phoenix, Arizona this Friday, December 7th at Arizona's hugest massive of the year with La La Land Music Festival, expected to be bigger than any other valley event to date. Five years in the making, this year's La La Land is expected to have an attendance of 10,000 EDM lovers from all over the nation! After being a go-to underground event within the Valley's rave scene for years, this year it's headed for the massive new Convention Center in Downtown Phoenix, and its three larger-than-life stages will be equipped to drop the bass in The Valley like we've never heard before. Unlike past editions this one isn't a dusk-til-dawn event, but will be held from 4 PM - 12 AM for obvious legal reasons. This event's lineup is extremely diverse and fully-loaded with super talented DJs with one-of-a-kind music styles. All together, there are thirty producers playing this event, with big names such as Lucky Date, Noisecontrollers, Bro Safari, and DJ BL3ND in attendance in addition to the headliners below. Watch out for our go-to photog with the blue hair at the event, and remember to say cheese people (not just cheese).

Datsik

Every time I see Canadian Dubstep artist Datsik, I leave with my face completely melted, and I know I can expect the same result after his headlining set at La La Land!  Datsik, whose real name Troy Beetles, describes his style as "dark and dirty", and this vibe never fails to disappoint. Be sure to catch his set if you don't want to miss out on bone-rattling beats and filthy bass that will blow your brains out. We're excited to see if he switches up the style this time and drops some of those Trap productions he's been working on!

Cosmic Gate

Our expectations for German Trance duo, Cosmic Gate are set high for their headlining show at La La Land. Known for their creative and illustrious live shows, we can not wait to see what they have in store for us. With their effortless, kinetic sound that incorporates riveting melodies and synths that can captivate the crowd instantly, Cosmic Gate is sure to leave the audience enthralled and connected not only to the music, but with one another as well.

 

Mat Zo 

La La Land was lucky to land yet another talented Trance/Progressive artistEnglish Anjunabeats producer Mat Zo will be gracing the stage with his stunning visuals and can always be counted on to bring on the lasers. With his newest collaboration with Porter Robinson, our favorite new track here at EDM Lounge, "Easy," we can expect to hear new sounds of Electro, House, and Trance all included in one spectacular set. Zo is known for being the master of buildups, and his beats are sure to carry you far above the floor on an intense emotional journey of sight and sound. Don't miss him!

 

Michael Woods

Earlier on this year, Michael Woods performed beautifully here in Phoenix at Hypnotica Music Festival, and the anticipation for his set just keeps growing. This English Tech/Progressive House producer never fails to give his listeners an eargasm (or multiple!), and always brings the most unexpected synths to the table. One can only hope he brings the vibrant lasers with him to wow the crowd once again.

Basshunter

"All I've Ever Wanted" was to see Basshunter! That track is engraved in our brains forever! Let's be honest, there's not many people out there who would admit that they don't love this Swedish song-writer and producer. He's one of those artists that takes you back into a techno time machine every time you listen to his music, and what raver doesn't love to look back on all their good times and artists they used to fawn over. Truth be told, this Swede never gets old for me, and I am excited to see his wild and outrageous stage presence that I have always loved him for.

Your Guide to Electric Zoo NY Afterparties

Excited for Zoo? I sure as hell am. Concerned about how early the festival ends each night? Not a problem! Made Event (who hosts the festival) have some terrific post-festival afterparties that are happening each night after the festival at Best Buy Theatre and Roseland Ballroom in New York City, and I am thrilled that I'll be able to continue the party into the wee hours of the morning until I "calm down" (these shows are also a great opportunity for those who aren't attending EZoo to still experience the massively talented lineup). Sound awesome? It is.

Friday 8/31/2012

EDITOR'S PICK: Zeds Dead, 12th Planet, Netsky, Mt. Eden, & more (Best Buy Theater from 11-4 AM)

This is going to be a sick show (and one yours truly will definitely be attending). The lineup for this is already stacked, and the pricetag is very reasonable considering the amount of talent they are cramming into 5 hours. Literally every one of these main headliners puts on a sick show, and having seen ZD and Mt. Eden perform together at this very same venue before I can guarantee you the house will be fucking brought down. Check out these videos of live shows and recent tracks And take our word for it, Best Buy Theater has incredible bass.

Tickets ($35)

Michael Woods, Gabriel & Dresden with Audien hosted by Ferry Corsten (Roseland Ballroom, 11 PM - 4:30 AM)

Not into Dubstep or DnB? That's totally fine, head over to Roseland Ballroom instead and catch what will be a massive party hosted by some big names in Trance and House. This is a great choice for those who want to continue in their "state of Trance" until Saturday morning, and there's no better place to do that than Roseland, hands down one of NYC's best venues. Have a look at some of their tracks and live stuff. This will definitely be an awesome show, and you should expect to see some of our Trance Family keeping it PLUR at this one, so stop by and say hi!

Tickets ($45)

Markus Schulz Scream Album Tour with KhoMha (Best Buy Theater, 11 PM - 4 AM)

 

Insanity. Trance artist Markus Schulz will be playing a massive set in celebration of his album Scream that will be released on Friday 8/31. Like Trance? Then this is definitely the place to be Saturday night. This year's Trance lineup at Zoo is incredibly stacked, so if you miss any big names, the afterparties are the time to catch up with who you missed!

"Diamond Rings" (Michael Woods Edit) - Jed Harper + Dzeko & Torres

Fuck yeah Electro House! This epic remix by Michael Woods was just released on Beatport today, and let me tell you, this shit is fire! Woods never disappoints, and he has produced a slew of epic edits and tracks that are always incredibly rage-tastic. This is yet another awesome track that he can add to his resume, and I'm really feeling this one. I love the melodic build-up followed by repetitive vocals and a filthy drop - this one's a party track for sure. For more examples of Michael Woods' production prowess, check out "Bullet" and his remix of Armin's "Youtopia" featuring Adam Young of Owl City

Out now on Beatport!
