Guy Gerber’s Steady EP & Tour Dates Announced

Hot on the heels of his recent groundbreaking Fabric 64 compilation, Supplement Facts bossman Guy Gerber is now ready to get “Steady” with a brand new EP and worldwide tour. 

Acclaimed photographer Martin Zalba Ibáñez has been tapped to provide a new series of B&W photos for the iconic Supplement Facts covers. The first one can be seen on Gerber’s first release on his own Supplement Facts label in almost two years, which sees him pairing with dOP frontman Jaw for ‘Steady,’ a melodic track filled with soaring synth lines, Guy’s emotional bass guitar chords, and Jaw’s incredible performance featuring his trademark eerie, distorted vocals. 

Rounding out the release is a beefed up Midland remix of Steady – perfect for peak time dance floor destroying. The vinyl B- side is a re-edit of the Golden Sun & the Silver Moon, a dreamy standout track off of the Fabric compilation (and Guy’s alternate name for the Fabric mix itself) featuring vocals by Clarion North of Footprintz (look for their upcoming album on Visionquest soon). 

Stream the entire ‘Steady’ EP at the link above, and visit Guy Gerber’s Facebook Page for a free download of the Golden Sun & the Silver Moon re-edit. Plus, stay tuned for info on the upcoming Beatport ‘Steady’ remix contest, where participants are encouraged to fashion their own unique composition from Steady’s killer bass lines, Guy’s guitar chords, and Jaw’s vocals.

Electric Daisy Carnival’s Jolt to Las Vegas Economy: $207 Million

Say what you will about the Electric Daisy Carnival, but Las Vegas looks to have hit the jackpot with it this year. The three-day electronic dance music festival added about $207 million to the local economy, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which cites independent research firm Beacon Economics. That’s on attendance of more than 320,000 people, up from around 230,000 in 2011.

David Guetta, Tiesto, and Avicii were among the EDM heavy hitters on this year’s bill. The festival reportedly drew 90 percent of its attendance from outside Sin City’s Clark County. EDC promoter Insomniac partly attributed the jump in attendance to the debuts of its EDC Week and EDMBiz Conference functions. Together, those events are credited with a $70.6 million influx to the local economy.

Two attendees died at this year’s EDC, with both at least partly related to substance abuse, although Insomniac has said the deaths “will not threaten the future of EDC in Las Vegas.” Deaths at the multi-city EDM fest’s events in previous years have spurred relocations and legal woes, with Insomniac CEO Pasquale Rotella among those charged earlier this year in a wide-ranging corruption case (SPIN’s Chris Martins suggested the case might be part of authorities’ broader war on raves). While SPIN’s Philip Sherburne has questioned whether Vegas really lives up to its own new-Ibiza hype, Sin City’s ability to bring in money remains unchallenged.
