One Tribe Announces Stage Curators for Inaugural September 25-26 Festival at Lake Perris Recreation Area
One Tribe, a unique electronic music festival, announced the stage curators for its inaugural event, September 25 & 26.
For two nights and one day on the sandy waterfront of Lake Perris in California, One Tribe Festival will unite dreamers, adventurers, campers and lovers of the deeper strains of electronic music for a Celebration of Life.
“ID&T is proud to launch a new, progressive crossover music festival on the West Coast. After bringing our European international successes Tomorrowland, Sensation and Mysteryland to the United States, One Tribe is the first home-grown US festival and will be our first event ever to premiere on American soil,” states ID&T creative director, Jeroen Jansen.
The vibe of this first One Tribe will be anchored by some of the most influential and forward thinking collectives in international dance music. Beatport will host a live stage, iconic Dutch house brand Awakenings makes its West Coast debut, while Jamie Jones’ Paradise, Get Lost + Crosstown Rebels, and B3, bringing the legends of the West Coast, will round out the stage hosts.
Located less than 65 miles from LA, One Tribe will host its attendees on a lakeside beach and spacious grass fields in a State Park, underneath star filled skies. One Tribe guests will have access to dedicated camping facilities directly adjacent to the festival.
One Tribe’s musical offerings will be fused with an array of wellness, visual arts and culinary programming, all housed under an overarching theme of Uniting the Tribes. It is through this melding of creative and exploratory fields that the ethos of the gathering emerges, bringing together clans and crews from across the West as One Tribe. Gathering on the shores of the majestic Lake Perris, we will celebrate Real Music for Real People.
One Tribe is produced by ID&T and Southern California based B3 Productions. ID&T is one of the world’s foremost electronic music event producers, behind iconic properties like TomorrowLand, Mysteryland, Sensation, Q-Dance and Electric Zoo. ID&T is part of the SFX portfolio, boasting over 1,600 annual events with attendance topping six million attendees each year. B3 Productions has been intertwined with electronic music in Southern California for nearly 20 years.

The Hello Clouds party will be rolling through the biggest clubs and cities across the world, with stops in North America including Output in NY, The Fillmore in Detroit, Stereo Bar in Montreal, Exchange in Los Angeles, Trade in Miami, and many many more.

The Hello Clouds tour will be fans exclusive chance to hear new music from the record ahead of its release. Keep your eyes peeled on the Clouds, as there will be some very special TBA shows revealed in the next couple weeks.
Justin Martin has been on a warpath, bringing good vibes and great music since the inception of the DIRTYBIRD crew more than a decade ago. Martin’s “The Southern Draw” EP was actually DIRTYBIRD’s first release, and tracks like “Beat That Bird“ and “Mr. Spock” have earned him a place in DIRTYBIRD lore. His acclaimed 2013 debut album “Ghettos and Gardens”, saw him reach well beyond the dancefloor earning support from the likes of NPR, SPIN, Nylon, and many more.
Since then Justin has gone on to release stellar tunes like “Steven Jello”, “Feather Fight” and “The Gettup” with DIRTYBIRD regular Eats Everything, and, most recently, the absolutely massive “Function” with his beloved partner in crime Ardalan, who will be joining Justin for much of the tour. Winning the 2015 IDMA for best House / Garage / Deep House DJ, this year is certainly shaping up to be one of Justin’s best years yet.
Put simply by Justin, “I started playing the pots and pans when I was 2… and now I’m a DJ”
Alina Baraz & Galimatias Unveil Pomo’s Remix of “Fantasy”
Danish producer Galimatias and singer songwriter Alina Baraz unveiled the sultry, crossover anthem “Fantasy” via Ultra Music less than a year ago. Since its Fall release, “Fantasy” has earned the distinction of being a Spotify Top Viral 50 track both domestically and globally, also accumulating more than 11 million plays on SoundCloud. The duo’s seminal release stands as a shining example of the their musical chemistry with its irresistible blend of Baraz’s ethereal vocals and Galimatias’ silky smooth production. Released today on Ultra Music is an official remix from rising star, Pomo.
Canadian DJ / producer, Pomo, steps up the energy level with an electric rendition of “Fantasy”. Known for a sound that transcends genre-limitations, Pomo elegantly blends raw elements of hip hop, dance and funk. These bits are finessed into a dreamy soundscape, making Pomo a perfect fit for this reimagining of “Fantasy”.
Pomo’s re-work opens to the serene cooing of Alina Baraz flowing over drippy background. The track then breaks into a bouncy synth progression infused with Alina’s cut up vocals that oozes an other worldly whimsical vibe. The track is a daydream which transports the listener to an auditory utopia.
The original version of “Fantasy” will appear on Alina Baraz & Galimatias’ 8-track EP URBAN FLORA, out May 19th on Ultra Music.
