If you didn’t catch SweetFA’s excellent European Festival Guide, I recommend you do so to be informed about extraordinary events such as this year’s Tomorrowland. There are many festivals around the world that strive to create a unique environment for the attendees, but there are few that stimulate a full sensory experience to the level of one of Belgium’s largest electronic music festivals. ID&T put together this after movie in an attempt to recreate Tomorrowland’s finest moments and it captures the festival in essence, but it does not do justice to an experience that often times words fail to describe. If you didn’t have the chance to attend (like me), this is your opportunity to live vicariously through all of the dirty dancers in the video!

The hard-hitting Swedish Electro fiends known as Dada Life have just ended their most recent tour and are back in the Scandinavian homeland for 2 months to put the finishing touches on their album, which they say will have “10-12 bangers” on it. To tide us over until then, Olle and Stefan have worked with Samsung to release a little minimix featuring 6 tracks that are on their heavy rotation. We love the Dada!
