Release Date: Monday, December 30th

showtek we like to party 2_raannt

Showtek launches a new record label, Skink, with a rave-ready single,“We Like To Party,” due out on Monday, December 30th. Closing out a massive 2013, Showtek establishes a tastemaker platform and offers up an exhilarating track to set a strong tone for the new year. “We Like To Party” embodies all that the Dutch duo is known for – high-energy big-room vibes and refreshing style – while also packing extra synth-driven power. Showtek is now expected to help shape the future of dance music as producer/DJs and label heads.

Following up on their worldwide hit, “Booyah” feat. We Are Loud! & Sonny Wilson, Showtek bring out a peak-time weapon to add to their loaded repertoire. In “We Like To Party,” they base the arrangement around their signature synth horns to accentuate the lead melodies that pierce through with stunning effect. With the synths combined with heavy drums and added sounds, the track results in an intensely stimulating listening experience that will astound crowds far and wide. Showtek hits the ground running with yet another world-class production to set the precedent for their new label.

Showtek has also just released a new episode of Skink Radio, their monthly radio show. Listen to Skink Radio 009 here on their official Soundcloud Page!

TomorrowWorld announces its Return to Chattahoochee Hills in 2014

tomorrow world 2014 info tickets_raannt

There really couldn’t be more love, respect, passion and praise for what was the most successful debut for any festival in 2013. Charged with an almost unimaginable task of replicating what sister event Tomorrowland does in Belgium, TomorrowWorld delivered on all fronts, endorsed by journalists, politicians, local authorities and most importantly the visitors!

Nestled within the vast and luscious landscape of Chattahoochee Hills in South Fulton County, Georgia during the last weekend of September and to a gathering of 140.000, TomorrowWorld unveiled the second chapter in the Book of Wisdom – one of the most stunning main stages ever constructed. An eclectic line-up of talent ranging from household names such as Tiësto, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Steve Aoki, to the up-and- coming stars of tomorrow all graced the eight uniquely designed stages. Over 75 countries were represented in the first festival of its scale to implement a 21 minimum age policy resulting in a festival atmosphere of friendship and joy like no other.

 

The producers of TomorrowWorld announced the dates for 2014. The second TomorrowWorld USA will take place once again in Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia on September 26th, 27th and 28th 2014, with DreamVille camping opening on Thursday 25th.

 

Pre-Registration for tickets will begin on Wednesday January 22, 2014

General On-Sale will begin on Saturday February 22, 2014

Danny Avila Goes Deep and Hard with ‘Poseidon’ Out Dec. 2 on Musical Freedom + Tour Dates!

danny avila poseidon musical freedom_raannt

Danny Avila gets ready to release his latest track ‘Poseidon’ on the Dutch icon’s Musical Freedom imprint.  The combination of a deep, throbbing bass-line, synth stabs and drowned melodic lines lead through the first sector of the track before ‘Poseidon’ evolves into what some listeners, who might be slightly longer in the tooth than others, might recognize as elements of hard house. Bouncing beats and percussion, driving crescendos plus a sick little ‘lock n load’ effect thrown in for good measure more than replicate the energy that Avila has become globally renowned for in his DJ sets, cementing ‘Poseidon’ as a firm fan favorite whenever the Spanish wunderkind steps behind the digital 1s and 2s.

Check out our interview with Danny!

Insomniac Announces the 18th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival Returning to Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 20–22, 2014

edc electric daisy carnival 2014 tickets_raannt

Insomniac announced that Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), North America’s largest dance music festival, will return to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for its 18th edition on June 20-22, 2014. The festival will bring Insomniac’s signature over-the-top production and creative elements to the venue including elaborately designed stage production and lighting, pyrotechnics, roaming theatrical performers, dancers and acrobats, interactive art installations and amazing music, with many new surprises for fans to discover.

Today’s announcement was released via a seven minute mini movie which relived some of the many magical moments shared during EDC Las Vegas 2013 as well as important information regarding upcoming on-sale dates for the 2014 edition of the festival.

 

For the first time, Insomniac is excited to unveil the “Headliner Loyalty Program,” which gives loyal fans the opportunity to secure tickets first. Loyal fans that successfully purchased passes to EDC Las Vegas in 2011, 2012 and 2013 will be able to use a unique code to participate.

“It’s the fans that make our success possible and it’s for that reason that we decided to develop the ‘Headliner Loyalty Program’ for the next EDC Las Vegas,” said Pasquale Rotella, founder and CEO of Insomniac. “It’s their energy and love that make this event possible, so I’m really excited that we’ve found a way to reward those who have been with us in Las Vegas since this adventure started in 2011. We are counting down the days until we welcome everyone back to Las Vegas next June.”

“Headliner Loyalty Program” passes will go on sale for 24 hours, beginning on Nov. 25 at 12 p.m. PST and ending on Nov. 26 at 12 p.m. PST.  An Early Owl Pre-Sale will follow on Dec. 2 at 12 p.m. PST. Additional details regarding the Headliner Loyalty Program and Early Owl on-sale dates can be found on both the Insomniac and EDC websites.

A sold out crowd of 345,000 fans came together over three days for the 2013 festival, which saw expanded production and theatrics.  The festival received acclaim through the introduction of new, meticulously designed scenic and production stages, inspired art installations including an art car parade and the innovative Night Owl Experience, the brainchild of Rotella.

EDC will once again take over Las Vegas during EDC Week, June 17 – 23, 2014, with an eclectic mix of nightclub and dayclub events spread across several Las Vegas’ venues. Insomniac’s annual dance music conference, EDMbiz, will also return for its third year in addition to a brand new dance music awards show.

Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2014 will start at $249 for general admission and $499 for VIP tickets for those 21 and over, in addition to service fees. VIP amenities will include a separate entrance to the festival for rapid entry, viewing decks overlooking multiple stages, full cash bars located on the VIP decks and lounge areas, separate restroom facilities, access to exclusive areas, a VIP lanyard and badge and a dedicated Ferris wheel. A layaway pricing option will be available for all on-sale dates. Single day tickets will not be available for this three-day experience.

General admission tickets will be in the form of a magnetic card and VIP tickets will receive RFID wristbands. One commemorative EDC box will be included per order. In previous years, these boxes have included EDC key chains, stickers, a festival guide and other trinkets.

Information on shuttle passes, travel packages and details regarding the full EDC Week schedule of events will be announced in the coming months at www.electricdaisycarnival.com and www.insomniac.com.
