This makes me want to go to TomorrowLand so much more. Never been, but I have to TomorrowWorld, but it’s for sure in my bucket list, and the official aftermovie makes me want to go to it so much more! Their message is amazing and the vibes are EVERYTHING!
Ok, the production of the main stage is crazy! It looked like you really would feel like you were underwater. Minute 9ish, when ‘Your Mind’ by Adam Beyer & Bart Skills plays… uuuufffff!!!!
Everything look amazing and the aftermovie does such an amazing job at wrapping it all up nicely. Like, I really really wanna go! Is it just me, or that ending a solid tearjerker?! UGH!!! I love them so much!!!! Did you guys like the aftermovie? What was your favorite moment?
yyyaaaaassss Benny!!!! Thank you for the perfect summer jam.
He’s teamed up with Sofi Tucker for ‘Everybody Needs a Kiss’. The track utilizes a deep horn-led hook, and relies on strong melodic elements. Literally was hooked 10 seconds in. ‘Everybody Needs a Kiss’ is available now!
As Spring Awakening Music Festival grows in popularity, stage production, musical acts and strong presence in the electronic music festival realm; it for sure breaths the PLUR vibes that many festivals stride for. Over the years, SAMF has worked in developing the ideal setting for it’s infamous festival. Trying different locations, evolving festival layouts, stage productions, and as it grows, it’s soul, implements the harsh lessons learned along the way to provide it’s beloved fans a greater and better experience.
For it’s 2018 edition, the SAMF & React Presents team worked over time to bring incredible, world renown DJs to their newly and hugely upgraded stages. They worked on prepping for the anticipated 100,000 attendees throughout it’s three day festivities and brought along extra city security to maintain a safe environment, in and outside, the festival grounds.
Now here’s where the PLUR vibes level up… The crowd was nothing but respectful of each other, helpful to one another, kind to indifference, and welcoming to unfamiliarities. Proud festival goers carried their flags representing their country or state, LGBTQ flags roam the grounds in celebration of music and PRIDE month, and SAMF set an example of respect for each others bodies and personal boundaries by teaming up with OurMusicMyBody. An organization dedicated to educate music lovers how to celebrate music respectfully.
Three strong days of PLUR in your heart and soul leaves us waiting for more, joking with our squads on what we did and when we’ll do it again, counting the days to the next festival (North Coast Music Festival?); And I hope, that just like the way we danced in harmony, we breath PEACE during our stressful weekdays ahead, LOVE those closest to us, bring UNITY to those who are different from us and, above all, RESPECT ourselves the way we want others to respect us.
Here here Spring Awakening, the 2018 edition was a loving success! Check out my FULL Spring Awakening Music Festival experience below:
The 2018 Snake Pit marks for one of the hottest Indy 500 Race day in recent history, in addition to the incredible lineup the ever growing festival put together. This year, our bodies were graced by returning champ Diplo, progressive house living legend Deadmau5, and electronic world domination power duo Axwell /\ Ingrosso.
Tho there were some rocky moments (delays, heat, and melting lop tops) the entirety of the Pit was, to me and those with me (VIP and friends), a success. I’m loving how every year the Snake Pit grows and grows. The stage was bigger and louder. The production thought of it’s 360 view and even decorated the back of the stage. Security was on point and made everyone feel safe and above it all, the crowd was focused on having a good time. My suggestion, lets make it a 2 day event, or maybe even 3!! Hi, the track is open the entire month of May, so starting the party on carb day, wouldn’t be such a bad idea? Thoughts?!?!!?!
Check out the pix below and also let us know what you think in the comment section of our IG video above!
I will tell you, I’m loving putting these lists together. I get asked what i’m listening so often and I figure this would be the best way to share what my musical obsessions currently are. Originally I wanted the lists to have some sort of theme, flow… but then I thought, my shuffle doesn’t, so why should my lists. So here you go 😍 (I’m going to link each song to iTunes, in case you guys wanna get them, ok?):
Claptone – Under The Moon feat. Nathan Nicholson.
First of all, I love all things Claptone. HE’S amazing and I could just die if I got to work for him. The man has an amazing ear and musically that creates sensual, energetic and captivating music. ‘Under The Moon’ does just that, I can’t stop playing it.
Dillon Francis feat. Young Ash- BaBaBa (Vete Pa Ya).
This makes for Dillon Francis’ 3rd single from his upcoming Spanish album.
“For my album I really wanted to make a song reminiscent of ‘Que Que’, but an elevated version of it that was fun yet tough sounding. Young Ash’s flow on this is exactly that,” shared Francis. “It’s truly one of my favorite tracks from the project. Her voice is so strong and striking which makes for such an incredible gritty moombahton song”
Knife Party – LRAD.
Oldie for sure… but holds a special little place in my music loving heart.
Lemaitre – Machine (Coucheron Remix).
Turn on the volume, roll your windows down (if you’re driving) and jam it out!!! This song makes traffic enjoyable. Like I almost (but not really) look forward to 6pm traffic so I can decompress from work and dance a little.
There you guys, Volume 2 of my weekly TOP 10 songs. Hope you’re enjoying the lists as much as I’m enjoying putting them together! And if you remember, IG story yourself jamming to these tracks and tag @RAANNTMAG… I want to see you love these tracks as much as I do.

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”
