The Eclipse2012 Festival takes place in November in Queensland, Australia, just hours from tropical beaches and lush rainforests.
It lasts 6 days and covers a range of musical styles.
The Sun Stage will feature psytrance, progressive and techno with the likes of Protoculture, Oliver Lieb, Space Tribe and Sensient on the decks.
The Moon Stage will offer dub-step, glitch-hop, future bass, ethno-crunk, breakbeats, IDM and more.
The Earth Stage is the destination for live reggae, dub, world music, gypsy, electro swing, house and disco.
There will also be a Chill Temple featuring chill-out and ambient artists from around the world.
Tickets for the event, which takes place on a 500 square mile rural cattle station, are on sale now.
This compilation series reflects music played in Paul van Dyk’s VONYC Sessions radio programme.
The show is aired on 52 stations in 23 countries and covers a wide variety of styles – from trance to house, progressive to techno, electro and beyond.
The latest edition of the album series features tracks from the likes of Moby, Marco V, Jochen Miller, Reverse, Protoculture, Cramp, Cosmic Gate and Tritonal.
There are also tunes by Paul van Dyk himself including We Come Together and Rock This.
VONYC Sessions 2011, mixed by Paul van Dyk, is released on Vandit Records on 15 December 2011.
Loverush UK! are Kinky Roland and Mark Schneider.
Their previous productions have included Fountains Of Youth, 5 Reasons, Give Me Your Love and Different World.
They describe their sound as “progressive electronica with a touch of euphoria.”
Tonight In Babylon is their new single due out on 13 February 2012 on Polydor. It features the vocals of rock legend Bryan Adams.
“Bryan’s writing and his voice inspired us to work with him” says Schneider of the collaboration.
“Run To You and the epic Don’t Give Up with Chicane are massive dance classics for us. We reached out to Bryan and he sent a song for us to work around. Within a week we sent back a full instrumental track. Bryan was in Australia at the time and laid down the vocals there. It was such a buzz to hear Bryan’s song and vocal on top of the production.”
The track comes with remixes from the likes of Roger Shah and Ronski Speed with Stoneface & Terminal.
But the outstanding remix is by dj and producer Nate Raubenheimer aka Protoculture which seems to work beautifully with Adam’s husky vocals.
Can I suggest this absolute stunner as the first massive hit of 2012?
This is the stunning new track by South African dj and producer Nate Raubenheimer – who produces under the pseudonym Protoculture.
Raubenheimer started his musical career learning to play jazz and classical piano then worked on film soundtracks before turning to electronic music.
His first artist album received acclaim on the psy-trance scene and led to appearances across the globe.
Since then he has collaborated with Max Graham and had releases on Armada Records.
Sun Gone Down features the vocals of Shannon Hurley and – for me – is an almost perfectly constructed vocal trance track.
It’s due out on Rebrand on 4 July.
