Rumours Are Spreading Over Recent Daft Punk Activity?????

Early this morning Daft Punk changed their Facebook profile picture and cover photo to what could possibly be their new album’s artwork. The picture doesn’t say much besides confirming the album will be released via Columbia Records, which is owned by Sony Music Entertainment. The update caused a flurry of activity on the page, which hasn’t been updated since March of 2012.This will be Thomas and Guy’s first album since 2005′s EMI Records release Human After All and will feature game changing forces within the entertainment industry. The French duo also posted a link to their updated website, causing it to crash within seconds. Once inside, it only displays the same picture. What could this mean? A tour? An album release date? It’s typical Daft Punk sending us cryptic messages we cannot untangle.Stay tuned for more info soon..

Maribou State Are Coming To Town!

If having Julio Bashmore and T.Williams coming to Brown Alley wasn't enough to get you excited, news that the Pommy duo Maribou State are now on the bill certainly should nudge your levels that little bit higher.

Having caught my ears with their breathtaking remixes ove the last year, it was their release on Fatboy Slims Southern Fried label that made me realise that they are the real deal. The one particular track "Scarlett Groove" turned out to be a world wide bomb of bass and emotion, gaining respect and plays from some of the most respected names in the game.

There have been countless times where their music has come on in my Ipod and I have actually had to stop what I was doing and catch my breath.

Here is a their brand new single released on Pets Recordings (Catz and Dogz label) . Amazing video and equally as amazing song.

Now for some of their remixes.

Whether its a 6AM sunrise or a 6PM sunset. This is essential.

If you are in any of our major cities when these guys are playing, I advise pulling the money out your ass attending.

Oliver - Solé Fixtape Volume 8

Oliver, the two man production team brings the eight installment of the fixtapes presented by Solé Bicycles. It’s gritty like French electro, sparkling like nu-disco, and techy-deep all at once. It features some obvious crate-digging (a Gessafelstein track from 2008 among others), but also some underrated treasures from recent months from Djedjotronic, Daniel Avery, Eli Escobar, and Supernova.

Moby vs. Empire of The Sun – After A Dream (Tommy Trash Bootleg)

 Picture (HOLY SHIP 2013)

One of the great things about Tommy Trash is that the guy goes hard. He absolutely tore Holy Ship to bits to. The first mash features his recent Moby remix and the massive anthem, ‘We Are The People’. The second bootleg takes Trash’s recent track ‘Sunrise’ and packs a harder hit into the drop, giving it the extra kick if that’s what you’re digging. Both bootlegs are up for free download below!

Tommie Sunshine - Where's the EDM Mixtape

A little laid back from what where used to from Mr Sunshine here's what he had to say.

In all of the pandemonium of the last few weeks I felt it necessary to make a mix that reflects my roots in Chicago & shows all the Underground nut jobs who berated me that I do, in fact, know the difference between EDM & House Music.
This is a listening mix mean to be enjoyed loud. Make no mistake that I'm going this direction with my live sets for 2013; this is just a love letter to the city that made me want to be a DJ.
These artists above are some of the best ones making this Deep style & their catalogs are worth exploring.
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did making it.
I hope you dance as much as I did while making it.
This is House Music.

If you haven’t heard about Holy Ship yet then you are probably living under a rock. This year’s second annual voyage sold out almost immediately and YES, it lived up to the hype. With one event already under their belt the HARD team made sure 2013 was even better than the year before. 

If I were to try to sum it up in a few sentences it would go something like this. Imagine 3,000 of the coolest ravers you have ever met from all over the world, raging to some of the best EDM music you’ve ever heard, all while on a luxury cruise liner in the middle of the Caribbean, complete with a huge dance party on a private island. Sounds like a horrible time, right?

When you step aboard this luxury cruise liner, you sign a deal with the EDM gods, you give them a part of your soul in exchange for what is sure to be the best 3 days of your life.

The boat itself, the MSC Poesia, is like Vegas on the water with a casino and 5-star amenities. The ship staff, accustomed to a more typical cruise crowd, is blown away and thoroughly entertained by the drastic change of scenery when Holyshippers arrive. Cruisers running around chanting “HOLY SHIP!! HOLY SHIP!!” can be heard at all times. Everyone is wearing outrageous costumes and doing outrageous things at all hours of the day. The madness doesn’t stop for 72 hours straight. The only bad part about this cruise is that it’s only 3 days long, and before you realize it, it’s all over. At 7am on Monday morning, 3,000 zombie ravers are reluctantly being ushered off the boat and through US customs, back to the real world. Until next year…

Here is the official HOLY SHIP 2013 video to wet yourself over and get ready for next year.

 Day 3 Private Island Beach Party (Bahamas)

Just another highlight of the ship. Dirtybirds front man Claud Vonstroke doing his thing up on the main stage.
