Deorro adds to his ever-growing arsenal of new music with “Obvious,” out now on Ultra Music. The reality is, however, there’s nothing at all obvious about this single. Smooth and emotive, “Obvious” represents a new style for the Mexican-American producer and follows the release of “Keep It Goin’” featuring Danny Avila, the Latin-infused “Pica” featuring Elvis Crespo and Henry Fong, “Focus” and “Wild Like The Wind.” These songs span multiple genres, giving Deorro’s fans a taste of something new with every release.
Stylistically, “Obvious” is an indie driven electronic track, with slicker-than-ice production and gentle vocals that meld into the perfect pop-infused masterpiece. This is Deorro at his silkiest.
Deorro’s high energy sets are the stuff of legend and not to be missed. How lucky you are that he will be on tour throughout the spring/summer, including performances at Chicago’s Lollapalooza and more.
Obviously, you need more Deorro in your life, so do yourself a favor and listen to “Obvious” here:

React Presents is thrilled to announce the new location and dates for Mamby On The Beach 2019. Chicago’s only beachside summer music festival will return for its fifth year on Friday, August 23rd and Saturday, August 24th at Montrose Beach. The beautiful new location, conveniently located on the city’s Northside, will offer additional space to accommodate three stages, beach-friendly games and all-inclusive activities.
Mamby On The Beach yields a majestic experience unlike anything else in Chicago. This year React Presents is excited to partner with Jam Productions to feature an incredible lineup for the two-day festival, which showcases artist performances that represent a wide variety of musical genres. The lineup and tickets will be released on Monday, June 3rd.
Since its inception, Mamby called Oakwood Beach its home, a prime location boasting scenic coastal views with an unforgettable backdrop of the Chicago skyline. Over the past four years, Mamby has felt fortunate thanks to the endless support from the surrounding Bronzeville community, and continues to support Oakwood Beach through initiatives like the Mamby Movement Beach Cleanup. Now, as the festival continues to grow, React Presents and Jam Productions look towards the future and are excited to find Mamby a new home with a bigger footprint at Montrose Beach. The new location is a 15-minute drive from downtown Chicago and a 5-minute walk from the Redline Wilson stop.

A schedule and full list of More Than Music activities will be announced closer to the festival.
For attendees who want to take a dip in the lake, a barefoot stroll through the sand, or a musical romp alongside the festival’s exhilarated fans, Mamby will once again provide the perfect, sun-soaked getaway.

This past weekend, Swedish House Mafia reunited for three historic sold-out nights at Stockholm’s Tele2 Arena, breaking the venue’s attendance record with over 115,000 fans attending the shows. See footage of the epic performance HERE.
Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso gave fans everything that has made Swedish House Mafia one of the most compelling live acts in the world – a stunning production, their classic hits such as “Don’t You Worry Child,” “Save The World,” and “One” plus a special first listen of some brand new music.
Fans from around the world travelled to be a part of the spectacular shows and were treated to a massive production featuring a 54 metre long and 17 metre high screen, a vast floating stage, three giant circular lighting rings creating Swedish House Mafia’s signature logo and three huge circles of fire that were suspended above the packed crowd.
Swedish House Mafia’s story so far has been one of amazing highs, with the trio achieving global success that propelled them to the forefront of dance music. Despite later facing difficult times that saw the breakdown of friendships along the way, Swedish House Mafia has put the past behind them, coming back together as artists, friends and family. Their return to their hometown marks the beginning of the next chapter for the iconic trio.

Currently marching her way through her biggest North American tour to date with performances at Ultra Music Festival and back-to-back headlining weekends at Coachella including being one of the first artists to ever be live-streamed from the YUMA Tent, Nicole Moudaber continues her dominance in the techno-sphere with her ‘Seeing It Through’ EP, her first original release of 2019. Arriving through her tastemaking MOOD Records imprint on Friday, April 26, the three-track release also features her first single of 2019 as the EP’s eponymous title track. With all three fiercely produced tracks asserting Nicole Moudaber’s position among techno elite, her ‘Seeing It Through’ EP is sure to leave a mark on the dance floor this spring and summer season.
Kicking the techno engine into gear, title track “Seeing It Through” will be sure to cater to fans of her signature dark and driving techno as the EP opens with heavy kick drum thunder. Arriving as the EP’s shortest yet most powerful offering, the track makes a point to lace listeners into a hypnotic groove that will leave them in awe, classic Moudaber at her finest. Keeping her foot on the pedal in “Common Dreams,” the MOOD label head introduces an entrancing motif that builds with warm pads throughout. Wrapping up the release’s final stretch, “The Sun at Midnight” opens with a mood setting musical atmosphere that inspires mysticism and journeys into the unknown. Immersing her fellow passengers along for the techno ride, it is not long before the track explodes with punching synths and a reverberating kick designed for peak moments. Road-tested and primed to perfection on dancefloors around the world, Nicole Moudaber always finishes strong.
An unstoppable force in the DJ booth, studio, and on the air waves with her weekly ‘In The Mood’ radio show, Nicole Moudaber continues to make 2019 another year to remember. Playing over 110 gigs in 28 countries last year, it is no secret that she is an in-demand talent at festivals and nightclubs around the world.

After touring his critically-acclaimed 2018 album ‘In My Last Life’ to sold out crowds across North America, Andrew Bayer unveils ‘In My Next Life’: a complete album of club-ready reinterpretations aimed squarely at the dance floor.
“Even though “In My Last Life” is experimental and does range through different tempos & styles, I did have the intention of doing club mixes”
explains Andrew, backstage at his sold-out Exchange LA stop.
Fans have enjoyed a steady stream of ‘In My Last Life’ single releases since August 2018 with several unveiled during Andrew Bayer’s performance at Above & Beyond’s landmark Group Therapy 300 celebrations in Hong Kong including ‘Open End Resource’, ‘Your Eyes’ and the only collaboration on the record, ‘Love You More’ with fellow Anjunabeats label-mate Genix.
Retaining the heavy vocal presence of Ane Brun & Alison May in each remix, Andrew has transformed one of his admittedly most challenging undertakings yet in ‘In My Last Life’ into a confident and accomplished club record.
“I have this masochistic backbone in me that I have to challenge myself at every turn, and that was the way to challenge myself with ‘In My Next Life’“.
Taking his ‘In My Next Life’ remixes and a host of new productions on the road this year, Andrew joins the Anjunabeats North American tour in Austin, Washington DC, Denver, Vancouver, LA (5/4) & San Francisco (5/10). Tickets available: http://anjunabeats.com/tour
John Digweed | Photo Credit: Dan ReidUnderground visionary John Digweed continues his acclaimed ‘Live In…’ mix compilation series with ‘Last Night at Output,’ commemorating the ultimate closing set at the Brooklyn clubbing institution. Recorded live on New Year’s Eve 2018, fans of John Digweed, underground dance music, the club, and those who were in attendance can now celebrate this night in dance music history with this special musical memento and collector’s item. Featuring over 70 tracks played throughout the 10-hour set, the album will include tracks from Âme, Agoria, Cassy, Claude VonStoke, Dixon, François K, Hot Since 82, John Digweed, Laurent Garner, OXIA, Steve Bug, The Drifter, and many more. Out on Bedrock Records on May 3, 2019, the compilation album will be released in a limited edition 6xCD box set, 4-set vinyl package, and for the ultimate dance music collectors, an extremely limited signed and numbered vinyl release will be available, pre-orders are available now.
“From sadness to joy, I had so many mixed emotions and an overwhelming pressure to deliver a party that a club of that stature deserves. I really put my heart and soul into that party drawing from my favourite tracks over the years. The 10-hour set seemed to fly by and there was just a constant sea of smiling faces from the dancefloor all night long as the crowd literally savoured every record on that crystal clear Funktion One soundsystem. After listening back to the set, I knew this album had to come out and not just be another mix online. It deserved to be a part of music collections and a memento for years to come. I am sure this album will bring back some amazing memories for the people there that night, and for those who were not, I hope you can immerse yourself in one of my favourite sets in New York for years to come.” -John Digweed.
A New York favorite since his Twilo residency in the 90’s and globally in-demand DJ/producer talent, John Digweed’s respect and admiration for Output’s forward-thinking policies, and now clubbing legacy appears once again in his ‘Live In…’ mix compilation series following his 2017 ‘Live In Brooklyn’ album also recorded at the club. An Output regular since opening its doors in 2013, the Bedrock Records label head had played the club a dozen times in its six year run including three consecutive New Year’s Eve appearances. Capturing the musical and emotional atmosphere of the club on its final night, ‘Last Night at Output’ comes as the label’s most challenging project yet backed by a passion-driven mission to ensure this night is remembered for clubbers and dance music aficionados worldwide.
Available for pre-order via Bedrock Records, the vinyl and CD sets will come in colorful distinctive packaging designed to celebrate Output’s spirit with a special die cut slipcase, box, and wallets. Combining all six CDs to create layers of vortex, the box set will include sleeve notes in an eight page booklet in a high gloss finish. All limited edition shrink wrapped 4-set vinyl packages will also feature a signed sleeve by John Digweed with a very limited amount of numbered and signed versions for collectors.
John Digweed’s ‘Last Night at Output’ mix compilation album will be available on Bedrock Records on May 3, 2019 and is available for pre-order now.
