Markus “Notch” Persson is not only known for creating one of the most popular games in electronic history, but has quickly made a presence for himself in the dance music world by hosting parties around the world with the biggest names in the scene. Amidst last week’s E3 conference in downtown Los Angeles, Notch decided to blow the roof off the gamer gathering and team up with Production Club (masters behind the visual experience of Skrillex, Zedd, Martin Garrix and more) to throw a huge party under a massive dome in the middle of the Los Angeles Coliseum.
The party featured the world’s largest inflatable dome in the world (not kidding – had to be shipped over from India just for one night) and a plethora of projectors to dance visuals across the concave canvas. The visual experience was other worldly, making you feel transported to another dimension.
Oh did we forget to mention the music? The soundtrack was provided by LA’s own Skrillex, Team Ezy and Bones, along with special guests DJ Snake and Diplo. An exclusive guest list of fans and friends made for one of the most memorable nights in the galaxy… er, so it appeared!

One of the biggest treats on this years HSMF15 lineup was the venerable Chemical Brothers and the return of their live show, so imagine the excitement that ensued when HARD announced it’s one off lineup for a special evening in San Francisco. Accentuated by the vivacious and lively Brodinski (+ more TBA) it gets harder and HARDer to pass on the short trip up North. The event itself is being held at a hollowed out Military Armory now owned by the porn behemoth kink.com (click if you dare #NSFW) and is outfitted for a wild evening with friends in the Mission.
Tickets go on sale Thursday 6/4 at 10 AM and can be purchased HERE.
Don’t sleep on this one of a kind show, who know’s when you will get the chance again!

One of the UK’s most exciting labels, Black Butter Records, is responsible for breaking some of the finest dance acts of today, such as Gorgon City, Rudimental, Jess Glynne, Kidnap Kid, and more.

With new festivals spawning in all corners of the United States and abroad, it’s easy for an event to fly under the radar, but San Diego’s CRSSD Festival harnessed our attention with its outstanding music programming, gorgeous venue, and more. After an anxious few months, the long-awaited festival finally descended upon the bay front park, and thousands upon thousands attended to experience a summery soirée helmed by some of the world’s finest producer/DJs and musicians like Maceo Plex, Chromeo, Hot Natured, Robert Delong, GDD™ homies Thomas Jack, Viceroy, Bixel Boys, and SNBRN, amongst others. By now, you’ve probably heard that CRSSD Festival was a great success, but in our minds, it was the perfect way to kick off festival season.
