35,000 people were on hand this past Saturday to attend the first ever Hard Presents: Day Of the Dead festival in downtown Los Angeles. The lineup was one of the most eclectic we have seen of any Hard Event and we could not wait to see how it turned out.
I wish so badly that I could hop on a plane across the Atlantic for this massive event in Brighton in 2 weeks. Fatboy Slim has curated yet another Big Beach Bootique featuring some of the world’s best talent including Carl Cox, Luciano, Nero, Maya Jane Coles, The 2 Bears, and many more. Tens of thousands are expected to come from all over the world to this monumental two-day event featuring 600 square meters of LED video screens and 385,000 Watts of sound, and we have a pair of tickets to give away to one of you kind folks. Enter to win after the jump! Continue Reading
It’s perfectly fitting that Maya Jane Coles decided to take on this new remix for fellow Londoner Bo Saris‘ latest track, ‘She’s On Fire.’ The femme Deep House producer has started a wildfire in the House and Deep House scenes in the past 18 months, with pristine original productions and edgy, innovative remixes. ‘She’s On Fire’ from Bo Saris evokes a soulful, Motown vibe, with emotional vocals wrapped around a solid, deep groove, and MJC takes it to another level as usual. Grab the single + remix on Beatport on May 21st. √+

Good morning! It’s the start of a new week and we’re getting back into the swing of things after an eventful weekend. Today’s news includes the Super Bowl halftime show, Calvin Harris, Radio One’s Hackney Big Weekend, & Maya Jane Coles. Please read on after the jump.
Quick, go find a Maya Jane Coles release that wasn’t entirely awesome and I’ll hand over my GDD account and password and I’ll be banishéd to a land where there is no music, only hissing white-noise and cacophonous feedback. OK, maybe a bit melodramatic, but Maya’s newest EPDon’t Put Me In Your Box, which came out today on the Hypercolour imprint, is just another wonderfully moody and hypnotic four track dazzler that adds to her blossoming discography. She must hate sunny days, because this is the music you want to be playing as you make your lover a warm cup of tea on a dreadfully rainy Sunday. She has an album coming out next year, sometime around May or June. I know it will be great, because she knows no wrong.
