Chic feat. Nile Rogers, Giorgio Moroder, Tensnake, Oliver, and Destructo. Woah. The biggest names in Disco from the past two decades all in one sentence, all on one bill, this coming May, as presented by HARD. With their Dischoteque stage in recent years, HARD has given the nod to the timeless genre on multiple occasions, but this time they give it the spotlight for what is sure to be a transcendent timeline of Disco’s existence in the modern dance music industry. On one hand you have the men who have virtually given birth to the movement, men who have worked with the legends your parents used to get down to. Then on the other, the producers who have/are keeping the genre alive in it’s current state. You have the chance to hear history unfold, a chance to understand an idea that has managed to keep it’s footing all this time. Continue Reading

Harvard Bass says in life you must “Stay True”… to who you are. And in this case “Stay True” to the music you live and love and then release it on a label that has never wavered.
After slaving away in the studio this year, our friend and favorite Victor Hugo aka Harvard Bass is set to release his debut album STAY TRUE this Monday, November 25th. It was a no-brainer for him to choose Relief Records as it’s home, the Chicago-based label owned by techno legend Green Velvet (whom he has collaborated with on ‘Lazer Beams’, ‘Kickin It’, ‘Sinkhole’ and his forthcoming ‘Bucket Boys’).
Starting tonight in San Diego, Harvard Bass kicks off a series of parties to celebrate the album dropping next week. Each party is planned to have several of his friends and special guests play sets, which is making for some exciting lineups all weekend long. The best part – ALL PARTIES ARE FREE!
11.21 – The Office – San Diego, CA
11.22 – La Mija – Tijuana, MX
11.24 – Los Globos – Los Angeles, CA

Massiv has promised special guests for the tour, and today, they’ve announced that DMC champ, DJ Craze, will be joining the boys for the show at the Fonda Theater December 1st. To celebrate the announcement, Craze has put together a killer mix that has gotten us genuinely excited for the show, with everything from Barrington Levy to Sub Focus getting thrown in the mix. Make sure to get tickets to these shows (Pomona, LA, SD) before they sell out, and have a listen to the wonders of Craze below.
