After quite a few successful releases under his belt over the past year Tim Bergling (better known under his 2 producing monikers Avicii and Tim Berg) was asked last month to record his own essential mix for Radio 1 in the UK. The mix just as you would suspect if you are familar with Avicii is a full 2 hours of Big Room house that makes you want to get up and move.  I highly suggest you download it if your a fan of Avicii’s style or of Big Room house or even if you just need something to pick you up after a long Friday and carry you into the weekend. Trust me you will not regret it.

• Avicii Essential mix 11-12-10

Cheers!

If I was obligated to do a one-word-festival-preview this would just say “INSANITY,” but fortunately for you I get to give you the real dirty dirt on what’s going down at the NOS Events Center this Saturday. Compliments of the crew over at Insomniac, this weekend’s 16th annual Nocturnal Festival is not to be missed. Even though it’s a bit off the beaten path out in San Bernardino, I for one totally love the set-up and location, and apparently so do about 40,000 others every September. The stages are set up in massive hangars, spacious tents, and something zuuper special and unique for the massive trance arena trucked in all the way from NYC.

On the grounds there is plenty of space to roam and explore and a wicked water feature that GDD™ does not condone swimming in! In addition to the top of the line production that has always been synonymous with Insomniac events, this year delivers top of the line talent across the entire spectrum of electronic music. From Steve Angello to Ferry Corsten, from JFK to ATB, to a CAN’T MISS set by Noisia, all the way to a Caspa, Benga, Skream trifecta taking place in the Sunken Garden, each stage is rife with opportunities for you to get your dirty little jig on. To get you psyched for the festival I got five essential performances for you to witness, and five crackin’ tunes to jack you up on the ride to the Events Center.

1. Dada Life
Gotta give it up for Olle and Stefan. Does anyone know how to get the party started harder than these guys? You always know what you’re gonna get when you do the DadaHOT FIRE!
2. Plump DJs
The Masters of the Breaks. Their set at Coachella two years ago was out of control. Or maybe I was out of control? Whatever. Don’t miss it.
3. Noisia
As mentioned above this trio is a must-see. Everyone who is anyone in DnB will tell you these guys are simply an elite, top notch talent. If you’re really not in to DnB, then allow them to be your introduction. If you haven’t heard their essential mix, then go hear it.
4. Steve Angello
Seen him both by himself, and as 1/3 of the Swedish House Supergang at EDC, and I think it’s safe to say he always brings the house down. Feel good tunes are guaranteed.
5. Ferry Corsten
Ferry’s set at Together As One three years ago will forever hold a special place in my heart. The man just knows how to play trance with some real energy to it. Throw in a stage/arena nearly 60ft tall with a 100,000 sq ft dancefloor + the chance to hear ‘Beautiful‘ on a proper system = something you don’t want to miss.
Honorable Mention
The Sunken Garden stage potentially going Plastician > Skream > Benga > Caspa back to back to back to back? Bassheads, make sure you take a five minute water break at least once.

And finally the tunes …
See you out there! Get your tickets HERE!
Much love,
Matt Black (& SNEEVS will be there too!)

Hope you kids are recovered from another weekend of summer mayhem. This week’s been a pretty nutty seven days for electronic music, so I figured I’d kick off with a few heaters for y’all – try saying that with a British accent while trying to keep a straight face…

First up, GDD faves Dada Life have gone and produced a wicked new remix of Tim Berg, the man who also goes by the name of Avicii. Fuelled by champagne and bananas, the Swedish duo have given the original track a massive kick up the ass with distorted vox and heavy synthlines. Chin chin:

Signed with both Fool’s Gold and Modular, Bag Raiders seem to be doing rather well for themselves at the moment. Their Big Fun EP is still getting a grip of airplay and their debut album is set to hit the shelves on October 1. Until then, let the new Harvard Bass remix of ‘Way Back Home’ tide you over. Massive fan of this track; to case the original, head over to aRod’s post from a few weeks back – easy link.

I’ve been keeping an eye on Human Life who’ve been putting out some real tuneage lately. The LA based indie-disco trio will be playing at Pacific Fest in Costa Mesa on September 4th alongside Alan Braxe, Steve Aoki, and GDD’s own Dr. Schlongo & ///Bones among others, so head down to the OC and party with us on Labor Day weekend – We’ll hook you up with more info on that later. Back to Human Life though, they’ve got an EP set to drop at the beginning of November featuring remixes from Grum, Mintel Rose and Boston duo Nightriders. They’re currently giving away the B-side ‘Italo Crimewave’ for free via their soundcloud:
Last and by no means least, Mowgli‘s just unleashed a solid seven minute fidget rendition of LA Riots ‘Bombah’. Again, a huge fan of this track; if you dig it, head on over to Beatport to show Mowgli and LA Riots some love and support by buying the track in full 320 - Beatport link
