Ok… I literally just saw Above & Beyond in Indy last night and this announcement gets me so excited for Miami Music Week next month. They put such. a. good. show! For the Miami show, the guys will be bringing along friends that can rock the house just as hard as they do.
So on Ultra eve, Thursday March 22nd, Above & Beyon will be taking over the RC Cola Plant with Seven Lions, Jody Wisternoff b2b Luttrell, ALPHA 9 b2b Spencer Brown, and Gabriel & Dresden.
It’s incredibly amazing seeing a generation of rave goers take over a crowed that partly was made up of kids that weren’t even born when Above & Beyond first got together. This 90’s rave vibe was everything! Reminded me of the days when ‘göt 2b glued’ and tight tank-tops were part of the raver started kit. Over the years, Above & Beyond has continued to put together incredible performances, emotionally charged songs, and captivating world tours. I’m glad I was able to witness their magic, their power of being a group and sticking together for so long, for penetrating my soul with their music, for every goosebump and for all the FEELS had with every light flicker, laser flashed, bass dropped, and lyric sang. The ‘Common Ground’ tour starts with the warmest of hello’s and it ends with an incredible, not really but you’ll get the point, ‘see you later’.
There’s still dates on their tour, so if you haven’t seen them, get your tickets! If you’ve seen them and need to hop back in time to your good’ol days of raving, get your tickets! If you’re just looking for a good time, get your tickets! Above & Beyond does not disappoint!!! Check out or pictures below.

They’re at it again… Alex & Drew just dropped their new single ‘You Owe Me’. The upbeat ballad makes for the perfect muslin for the upcoming festival season anthems. I can already feel the mixed live version thumps bursting through my body while dancing at Ultra Music Festival Miami… I can already feel it! The fun duo also dropped the official video today. Now, this is going to sow how much TV I watch, but did anyone watch Beverly Hills 90210? The remake series? The house they use is the same house Naomi Clark lived in! SUCH a SEXY house. Aside from the useless location information, lol, the cinematography of the video is pretty stellar. Alex & Drew did an amazing job creating a new track for us to fall in love with and a video to match it!
Number 2!!! They highly anticipated Don Diablo album drops with an impressive list of collaborative tracks and true to character beats.
Don Diablo has created a world known personality and vibe with his infamous snapchats, fan interactive meet & greets, and crazy fun shows. Check out the full tracklist below and give it a nice download and listen.
Speaking about the album as a whole Don said “These last few years have been quite a journey for me on all levels. I had to fight many demons on a personal level and rediscovered myself as an artist in the process. I never thought I would end up where I am today, but on my journey I have learned and experienced many things that I have (subconsciously) used while working on this album. FUTURE features sixteen tracks that all have their own story, both musically as well as lyrically. I wanted this to be a motivational record that sonically showcases new ideas on a productional level, ranging from Future House to Future Pop and everything in between. I feel blessed to have worked with some of the most incredible new voices out there like James Newman, Nina Nesbitt, Betty Who, Calum Scott and many others. To me THEY represent the FUTURE and their talent is a very important part of this album. Besides this I also provided my own vocals to three of the songs on FUTURE, which definitely makes this album one of the most personal things I have done in a long time. After releasing many singles and remixes these last few years it feels amazing to finally be able to present a real body of work to my fans (and hopefully FUTURE fans) again. Having said that…I am as inspired as I have ever been so the next album will definitely not take another six to ten years”

“In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy…”
In Music Festival World, is just another night where boys and girls can dress up as whatever they like and no one can say anything about it… The hard-core ragers turn on their LED gadgets while they step into their party dimension and stay hydrated. Fortunately for us, this was not our first rodeo.
We gathered our Halloween gear and got to Indy’s hottest event/concert venue, The Pavilion at Pan Am Plaza, for Haunted Fest, Indy edition. WE were extra excited for A) Haunted Fest 2016 was so much fun, we loved it, B) it’s was here, INDY!! Which we’re so happy to see more of our favorite types of show come through our city, and C) Our close friend Jason Barth opened the show!
The Pavilion at the Pan Am Plaza is huge, great warehouse vibe with multiple elevated VIP areas, an ultra VIP area (that could use less lighting and more bass, give it that ultra lounge exclusivity) and bars (for the 21+) all through out. We did missed the silent disco, the outside little plaza would be ideal, plus it would make for the perfect spot to cool down.
Cash Cash rocked the stage with remixes of classic 90’s electronic beats. They rocked a killer mix of Eurythmics -Sweet Dreams, Nelly’s Ride with me and lots of their originals. Their vibe is always so dope and they put on a great show every time. Waka Flocka Flame, for us, totally changed the vibe… Personally, really into his music, but the crowed loved him. He does put on a fun interactive show. He brings his pose up on stage and got the crown hyped. Now, Yellow Claw, that’s totally up or wheel of loving. It’s amazing how music can transport you to a different time and place. I found myself dancing at Ultra Music Festival or Spring Awakening when some of his songs would play. That’s thing about musicians (Yes! I believe DJs/Producers are musicians), if you love them, they take you on an amazing journey with their songs and performances.
Haunted Fest 2017 was a huge success for us. The Pavilion downtown Indy is amazing and we’re so excited to see all the upcoming shows they have in store for us! Check out our Haunted Fest pix below.
