Fatboy Slim honored at IMS

Norman Cook, aka dance legend Fatboy Slim, was yesterday honoured at the IMS Legends Dinner in Ibiza.
Talking Heads frontman David Byrne, Carl Cox, Rob Da Bank and Nervo were all in attendance to praise Cook.

Iggy Pop congratulated Cook via a video message and Idris Elba, star of hit US drama The Wire, also lauded the Brighton DJ.

Cook commented, saying he was “overwhelmed” and that it was a “real honour” to “follow in the footsteps of Carl Cox and Pete Tong… Two of my favourite contemporaries in the DJ world.”

Highlights of the celebration included a unique rendition of ‘Praise You’ by Ibiza’s Ibiza Choral choir, a 20-piece group, arranged by Latin composer, Hector Ponce.

Listen: Dog Blood live at Coachella 2013

If your Friday afternoon has been going way too slowly and feels devoid of any excitement, head over to Dog Blood’s Soundcloud page. The duo of Skrillex and Boys Noize have just uploaded their set from the Coachella festival, and it’s every bit as rough, brutal and full of a generally “fuck off we’re having fun” vibe as you’d expect.

Although covering a wide range of BPMs and moving through a variety of genres from trap to old school rave, the set has a common theme of balls-out – almost absurdly aggressive – energy. Of course there are tracks from both Boys Noize and Skrillex peppered throughout, as well as a reworking of their now infamous Middle Finger to open the proceedings and some exclusive jams written specifically for the festival (whether these will see a release is not yet known, though). It’s not a set for the faint hearted, nor for those who can’t take a little bit of tongue-of-cheek gabber, booty techno and hardcore breakbeat.

Stylistically it’s easy to hear who brings what to the table, with the 90’s rave sounds like overdriven hoovers and riotous acid lines quite clearly being Boys Noize’s influence and the half-time beats and chopped-up vocals coming from Skrillex. However, it doesn’t feel like two disparate artists clashing heads and playing a game of musical tug-of-war. Instead, their respective influences come together and meet in an interesting middle ground and the two of them seem willing to compromise and follow each other’s leads where necessary. To the circle pit!

Tomorrowland 2013: The full stage line-ups

Back in February, Tomorrowland sold out in the blink of an eye. Clearly, none of the lucky 180,000 ticket-buyers nor the many thousands who missed out were concerned that ID&T would deliver a flat line-up. Over the last few months, the 2013 Tomorrowland bill has been steadily revealed through the festival’s Facebook page. Now the full stage line-ups are complete and right here in one easy-to-scroll spot.

Over three days in the Belgian town of Boom this July, a cast of the biggest names from every corner of dance music will come together at De Schorre National Park (one of our 15 Epic Festival Locations You Need To See, for obvious reasons). Across the three days, the Main Stage is set to feature TiestoHardwellSebastian IngrossoAviciiArmin van Buuren and on Sunday, a three-man DJ set from AfrojackNicky Romero and David Guetta.

While the Main Stage is consistently bombastic, there are many other places to roam. Booming techno is well-represented in arenas led by Carl CoxDave Clarke and Sven Vath, along with trance, electro, house, hard dance, drum & bass and dubstep. House heroes Derrick CarterMark Farinaand DJ Sneak will once again square up for a ‘versus’ set, while other drawcards include our reigning hero of 2013 Eric PrydzLaidback Luke doing a Super You&Me stage, Ferry Corstengetting Full On with his friends, and the list goes on.

“The biggest achievements of Tomorowland are simultaneously the ridiculous level of spectacle, the incredible detail in the set-up that creates a cohesive fantasy world at every step, as well as being the ultimate salute to those who enjoy a genuine spectrum of different dance music,” our reviewer wrote in 2012. “There’s something special about the fact that Dave Clarke, David Guetta and Josh Wink can all be playing at the same time, each with a set-up that’s equally as spectacular in its own way, and that these worlds can all exist alongside each other.”
