Festival season is upon us, and the massive lineups keep rolling out as the excitement continues to brew. After announcing phase 1 earlier this year, New York’s Mysteryland USA is adding to the already stacked bill with an eclectic array of talent, ranging from dance music to hip-hop, and several genres in between. The festival’s historic Woodstock venue, Bethel Woods, NY, will be welcoming headliners like Skrillex, ODESZA, and Bassnectar, while also featuring heavy hitters like Gesaffelstein, Young Thug, GRiZ, Keys N Krates, Gladkill, Rezz, and Tchami, amongst others. Although Mysteryland USA stepped outside of its typically underground-centric programming, it still locked in luminaries like Kerri Chandler, Art Department, J.Phlip, Lee Burridge, John Digweed, Moodymann, and more. With all of these acts and other attractions like delicious food, yoga, speakers, Mysteryland USA is about to be a memorable weekend beginning on June 10th.
The year is winding down and everyone has their sights set on NYE, but there’s something much more exciting than your typical night on the town… Electric Paradise Music Festival is going down on a gorgeous beach in the Dominican Republic on the 19th, and it’s expected to be a stand-out electronic music-driven event featuring acts like Major Lazer, Nicolas Jaar, AlunaGeorge, Chromeo, and even Skrillex, amongst others. In addition, the festival promises a bunch of other fun activities if you need a break from the music, and many food/drink options to keep you happy, satisfied, and healthy.
In celebration of Electric Paradise, we’ve put together a list of what you need to know about Electric Paradise.
Last winter, Electric Paradise attracted over 12,000 attendees for their inaugural festival, and it’s coming back for more on December 19th, along with a great lineup to match. With just over 30 artists set to perform, Electric Paradise has upped the ante and continues to hold the title of being the largest dance music festival in the Caribbean. The one-day festival will include performances from high-profile, main stage-friendly acts such as Skrillex, Diplo, Steve Angello, Porter Robinson, Cashmere Cat, and more, as well as indie-leaning and underground acts like AlunaGeorge, Nicolas Jaar, Guy Gerber, and Hot Since 82, amongst others. Additionally, a grip of local acts like the house duo, Lash, Dav Motta, and more will be rounding it all out to bring vibes cultivated within the Dominican Republic.
Electric Paradise is sure to be a bliss-filled affair, especially with these names on the bill, so treat yourself before the holidays, and grab your ticket here.
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!

Just over a week ago LA-massive Mad Decent dropped a five-flush remix pack of Elliphant‘s “Only Getting Younger feat. Skrillex” on their Soundcloud and like some of the best things in life that shit is free.99! Predictably all of the tracks are heavy hitters, ranging from big-room horn-heavy bounce vibes from TJR and Brazzabelle to the moombahton-tempo squaks of the Milo & Otis remix, to the sped-up DnB halftime version from DJ Vice & Justyle, to my personal favorite sort of experimental melodic trap/beats version from NGTMRE and Imanos. Regardless of what your style or taste is, this is a classic encompassing Mad Decent Party Pack that not only showcases a festival-ready range of styles but also a great look at some of LA’s biggest and baddest upcoming talents.
You can preview the whole pack below and download them over on the Mad Decent Soundcloud.
