Now, honestly, where else are you going to be over August bank holiday weekend?
Lost Witness, Sandro Silva, Cosmic Gate, Bobina, Gareth Emery and Lange are just some of the artists featured on this 15 track digital album.
Here is a sneak preview:
Over the last 18 years Cream has become one of the club brands in the world and their dance festival Creamfields – which is staged in Cheshire every August Bank Holiday weekend – has won the award for Best Dance Event in the UK Festival Awards for the last 2 years.
The festival has also been staged in 17 other countries around the world and Cream hosts a famous summer residency at Amnesia in Ibiza.
Cream Future Dance 2 is priced at £4.49 and can be purchased via iTunes.
This summer dj and producer Gareth Emery will be bringing his Northern Lights album concert to Ibiza for 2 exclusive shows.
The event involves an extended dj set which includes live vocalists, instrumentation and additional production.
This concert has already sold out dates in Toronto and Leeds and will be heading to Los Angeles and Chicago before the final two European events in Ibiza on 17 June and 24 July.
During the summer season Emery will also be playing 5 dj sets as part of BE on Wednesday nights at Space Ibiza.
He’ll be performing on 6 July, 3 August, 17 August, 24 August and the closing party on 14 September.
The Northern Lights Re Lit album is available to download now.
Northern Lights was the debut artist album of Gareth Emery and featured one of his most acclaimed anthems – Sanctuary.
All 12 tracks have now been remixed by a handpicked selection of some of Gareth’s favourite producers.
John O’Callaghan, Ashley Wallbridge and Jorn van Deynhoven have given new twists to tracks such as Stars, Too Dark Tonight and Arrival.
Northern Lights Re-Lit will be available in physical format and as a digital download from 18 March 2011.
There are release parties planned in Manchester, Miami and Los Angeles.
This new double mix compilation is dj and producer First State’s review of 2010.
It features some of the best tracks played as part of his popular Crossroads podcast.
This digital only compilation includes music by Zoo Brazil, Sander van Doorn, Nic Chagall, Marco V, Cosmic Gate and Gareth Emery.
It represents an exclusive look inside First State’s record bag as well as a snapshot of his live dj sets.
Crossroads Yearmix 2010 is available now via iTunes.
I’m going to let Tony from Above & Beyond tell you about this:
“We all read about the Detroit Urban Farms project and saw the documentaries and it really moved us all. To see a community reclaiming the crumbling city blocks to grow the food they need is an incredible story in so many ways. It was moving, topical and also a beautiful and apt illustration of what the song is actually about – triumph over adversity. As a video concept it was perfect from all angles.”
The video is directed by Steve Glashier who has made videos for Fatboy Slim and Juliette Lewis but the real stars are the Georgia Street Community Collective and the Detroit community who have united to transform their local surroundings.
As part of their 2011 US tour Above & Beyond will be playing a Detroit charity gig to raise money for the Georgia Street Community Collective’s current projects which include building a community lab and neighbourhood library.
Above & Beyond – some of the nicest men in trance.
After playing some of the biggest and most impressive events around the world including the Ultra Music Festival, Global Gathering, Nature One, Creamfields and Dance Valley this respected dj and producer releases Northern Lights.
It features tracks such as Sanctuary, Too Dark Tonight, Fight The Sunrise, Stars and Citadel and displays the versatility and creativity of a master craftsman.
To celebrate the launch of the album Gareth will be performing a one-off concert style event at the 02 Academy in Leeds alongside fellow dj and producer Sean Tyas.
He will also be embarking on a worldwide tour visiting venues from Ibiza to Buenos Aires.
For fans of dance music there were two amazing festivals over the bank holiday weekend.
It started with the brand new Electronic Dance Festival in Victoria Park in east London. David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Audio Bullys, Zombie Nation, Leftfield, Goldfrapp and Professor Green were on the bill across the two day festival.
After a week of torrential rain the London Electronic Dance Festival was so lucky that the weather settled down and stayed – mostly – dry for the thousands of people who turned up.
This was a brave experiment created by three giants of live music – Cream, Goldvoice and Loudsound – who joined forces to introduce a brand new outdoor electronic dance festival in London.
The dance fraternity certainly showed their support and the response of the crowd – particularly to an excellent set by Calvin Harris – will hopefully ensure this festival becomes a regular event on the London scene.
The second festival was the mighty South West Four Weekender which took place on Clapham Common on Saturday and Sunday.
Artists on the line up included Armin van Buuren, Erick Morillo, Sasha, Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Sander van Doorn, Marco V, Judge Jules and Gareth Emery on the Saturday. On the Sunday, Fatboy Slim, Salt – n – Pepa, Armand van Helden, Zane Lowe, Carl Cox and Layo & Bushwacka!
I went on the Saturday as the world-famous Gallery were hosting an arena with a stunning line up which included Italian dj and producer Giuseppe Ottaviani.
Although I have long been a fan of Ottaviani I have never seen him live so I was hugely exciting about the prospect of a trance session surrounded by other passionate trance fans.
I arrived in time to see a packed arena much enjoying the sound of Radio 1’s Judge Jules who entertained with his usual gusto.
If you are familiar with Giuseppe Ottaviani’s excellent debut artist album – Go! – you will know he is a hugely talented musician and craftsman and as he launched his live set with chords from the keyboard I knew we were in for something special.
He delivered a beautifully paced set incorporating tracks from the album including Angel and No More Alone with a real musician’s feel for the music.
At first – to my surprise – the crowd were slow in responding to this euphoric and uplifting brand of trance.
But as Ottaviani played several ‘anthems-in-the-making’ including his remix of Paul van Dyk’s We Are One they began to appreciate a truly fine performance from a considerable talent.
For me, Ottaviani played the set in The Gallery arena. I can’t wait to hear him again.
The South West Four Weekender was sold out across both days and the London Electronic Dance Festival was certainly very busy when I went on Friday night.
There is obviously a huge audience and appetite for dance music in London and it is fantastic that the promoters of both events take a risk with the weather and dare to put on these festivals.
I hope they will both be regular fixtures in the diary from now on – although, any chance we could have them on different weekends in future?
Guess who has been added to the line up for SW4?
Armin is headlining on the Saturday but djs recently added to the line up include John Digweed, Paul Oakenfold, Mark Knight, Judge Jules, Josh Wink, Gareth Emery and the wonderful Giuseppe Ottaviani.
Jerome Isma-Ae – who recently created a fantastic version of OT Quartet’s Hold That Sucker Down – is also playing.
It just gets better and better.
