A couple of years ago, I attended Lucidity Festival for the first time, and ever since, I’ve wanted to return for its eclectic music programming, vibe, art, and down-to-earth crowd that prefers an intimate experience. Just last week, Lucidity announced its 2015 lineup, months after selling out of the initial “Early Owl” passes, and it’s looking like it will be another fantastic 3-day weekend run from April 10-12 in Santa Barbara. Headliners such as The Polish Ambassador, Thriftworks, and Fort Knox Five hold down the bass music front on the Lucid Stage, while Elephant Revival and Dirtwire grace the Alive stage, along with other stand out underground and local talent scattered throughout.
In addition to the Lucid and Alives stages, the Nomad stage, curated by Santa Barbara’s Music Is Love, rounds out the bill with an on-point selection of house, techno, and some more bass music. Artists like Doorly, dirtybird’s Christian Martin, Pumpkin, Perfect Driver affiliates Wood Holly and Ballast, Trevor Kelly, Bix King, A La Mode, and a couple of our own, The Interns, will man the decks on that stage throughout the Lucidity weekend. To highlight the Nomad stage, we’ve put together a music-focused showcase of select artists from its lineup to get you ready for what’s to come.
Enjoy the showcase after the jump and pick up tickets to Lucidity here.

To celebrate his recent AWARD EP release on Fool’s Gold Records, the NY based Brenmar is throwing a party w/ iheartcomix @ Los Globos this Thursday in Los Angeles and we wanna give you a pair of tix to go!
HOW TO WIN:
Share/RT this post on twitter and we’ll pick a winner at random on Thursday morning.
His aptly titled Award EP (out 1/20 on Fool’s Gold) is more than a victory lap for a nightlife champion, but the start of an awesome new chapter, melding songwriting chops atop years of body-moving DJ knowledge. 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.

It’s official – my Holy Ship! cherry has been popped. Three days on the 4th largest cruise liner in the world with some of dance music’s most devoted attendees was one for the record books (now I do it all again in February). It’s pretty incredible to be in such close quarters with some of the most talented DJ’s around the globe, and I think this shared connection allowed for a lot of risks on the turntables, that, or the expected three sets from each performer willed them to dig deep into their collection. Either way, the music was incredible, as was the setting and the vibe. So swell in fact, I’ve put together my Top 10 Tracks as heard on Holy Ship! 2015 (January Sailing). Continue Reading
