New World Punx (Markus Schulz & Ferry Corsten) EDC 2013 Mix 

Markus and Ferry made it clear at Madison Square Garden that they weren't chasing after the 130-140 Trance beats or vocal Progressive sound anymore. Their recent debut as the New World Punx is all about the dark pounding sounds of Electro, and today they're here to offer us a mix to tantalize our senses before the fun kicks off tomorrow in Las Vegas. Enjoy this short 30 minute mix and be sure to download their hit new single "Romper" here for free.

Music For Your Morning: Liquid Soul Summer Mix 2013

I know it's hard to start my day listening to hard bass music, though I will admit Doctor P "Big Boss" used to be my go-to get in the zone morning anthem. This fine morning I present you with one of the finest liquid mixes I've ever heard from none other than the appropriately named Liquid Soul. Switzerland isn't usually a name we associate with dance music like other European countries, but Zürich has produced quite a jewel of a producer. There's something special about music that loosens your tensions but gets you grooving at the same time, and this guy has absolutely mastered in it. Whether you want to call it "Progressive Liquid D&B" or Psy-Trance he really is up to something different, especially when you realize that a lot of these tracks are also his own productions. Hold on because Nicola Capobianco is about to swim you through the ethers of audio.

Tracklist

1. Vertex & Pion - Sunrise Tonic (Liquid Soul rmx) 
2. Major 7 - Revelation Downed (Liquid Soul rmx) 
3. Liquid Soul - Devotion 
4. Liquid Soul & Captain Hook - Liquid Hook

Skrillex BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix

It's been a crazy year so far for Sonny Moore, and now's the time for his essential Essential comeback. The crazy rocker from L.A. initially spun for Pete Tong back in 2011, and his second run has been eagerly anticipated by fans and critics like myself alike. The new studio mix combines new music from Dog Blood (his energy-fueled Electro-Bass collaboration with Boys Noize), AC Slater, Alvin Risk, Knife Party, and Skrillex himself.

Free Download

While many rightfully predicted that the Skrillex persona would take a backseat after his breakup with Skrill-ex Ellie Goulding for Dog Blood to continue its grand unveiling, tonight's mix turned out to be an ode to his versatility as an artist rather than a promotion of his next undertaking. During the press conference at IMS Engage in Hollywood, Skrillex was asked regarding “the kickback” from veteran DJs and artists against his popular, video game-step sound. "I think there's so much criticism that's nice," he told the floor. "People love it, or they hate it. If you look at a painting in an art gallery, even if you hate it, at least it makes you feel something. You've got this new, loud, bombastic punk rock energy that's coming in with electronic music, then you have the old-school techno, which comes from a different place and energy, even though it's all electronic music. We're all coming together – there wasn't a Yuma tent [where underground house and techno names played] last year at Coachella, and now there is." Be sure to catch Skrillex alongside conspirator Alex Ridha (Boys Noize) at the OWSLA-hosted Riverside Tent Friday at Electric Zoo, after hearing their set at Ultra this year I can assure you that's going to be one party you don't want to miss!

Free Download: Audien June Mix

Having been featured in dozens of live sets and received open support by artists like Above & Beyond, Tritonal, and Armin van Buuren, Audien has skyrocketed in popularity over the past two years. His brand new June Mix is an hour-long gift of Progressive bliss to kick off the summer. The mix is filled to the brim of his anthems, like "Leaving You" featuring Michael S., but it also includes some mashups of his songs as well as what he calls his "favorites at the moment." Audien is currently touring both in North America and a few spots in Europe and after going to one of his shows last weekend, I would highly recommend catching him live. Be sure to check out today's episode of ABGT too where his Anjuna follow-up to "Wayfarer," "Iris" premiered as the Tune of the Week. Snag this free download and see what else this fresh talent has in store for the future!

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.
