“Individuality and Creativity in Technology-based music.” This is the credo for Richie Hawtins latest college campus tour, CNTRL. The party features some of the heaviest hitters in techno and house music, and is really groundbreaking in terms of what it’s doing for dance music.

This party features sets from Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing, Victor Calderone, Ean Golden and Lee K, and is truly much more than meets the eye.

From 808 slow jams to confetti-ready anthems, Award is a four-track collection of earworms featuring voices from the underground (Newark’s Dougie F and UNiiQU3) and radio (Jeremih collaborator Sayyi) alike.

With a brand new home at Pomona’s sprawling Fairplex venue, Gary Richards and the rest of the HARD crew were primed and ready to blow minds this Halloween weekend. With a handful of dance music events clouding the festival-goers view, they were sure to enlist a remarkable lineup. Names such as ZHU, Diplo, a B2B from Eric Prydz and Deadmau5, and nearly the entire Dirtybird label drew in massive crowds each day, and yet again proved why HARD lies atop the festival totem.
If you’re at all aware of the Dirtybird crew (you should be), you’re more than likely aware of the various Dirtybird BBQ events they have been throwing over the past months. These shows have done wonders in combining the friendly atmosphere and bouncing bass the label has become so known for. Brooklyn, Detroit, Toronto, San Francisco, and now Los Angeles for HARD Day Of The Dead where they will be taking over an entire stage. Full preview after the jump!
