Everything can be hacked, as world renowned techno artist i_o has continuously proven. Combining dark heavy grooves and intense evolving melodies, i_o brings together dance music’s finest elements. With influence ranging from deadmau5 and UMEK to techno’s most underground, i_o is poised to take over the world’s main stages with driving sets that grasp and don’t let go.

His latest, a dark and suspenseful four-track EP titled House of God out now on deadmau5’ label mau5trap, has taken over dance floors with its pulsing vocals and driving bass lines. The EP has solidified i_o’s signature heavy sound in the forefront of dance music’s most exciting new arrivals. With prolific releases on mau5trap, co-signs from deadmau5, Above & Beyond and JAUZ, along with highly anticipated appearances at Creamfields and Electric Zoo (fans also caught his mesmerizing sets earlier this year at Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival), as well as direct support slots on deadmau5’ CUBEV3 tour in Dallas, Los Angeles and elsewhere to be announced very soon, expect to see i_o everywhere.

Says i_o, “In  2017, deadmau5 brought Cube 2.1 to LA for a few shows. A friend took me to one of the nights and we were lucky enough to get to go to the Factory 93 warehouse after party. I was producing under a variety of projects at the time but that night, seeing deadmau5 in his full form with the cube, followed by him in a warehouse ripping through a two-hour techno set was enough to kick start me into taking the leap with the i_o project. Two years later I’m in my own element, excited to be joining forces on the cubev3 tour.”

i_o in the press:

“Possession’ is one of those tracks so good that you might actually have to stop dancing for a second when you hear it at the club, just to spend a moment in awe of everything that’s happening. The melodic trance banger by Los Angeles-based producer i_o launches with a signature kick drum, to which is added frenetic beat layer; then subtract the kick drum, add a very Green Velvet-style vocal, add the kick drum back in and ride it out for a minute before a siren synth takes the entire operation to the next level. Coming from i_o’s for track House of God EP, our today via mau5trap, ‘Possession’ is dark, massive and entirely undeniable.” — Billboard Dance

“i_o brings techno to another level…” – EDM Sauce

“At the intersection of defiance and progression, close to the precipice of looming darkness and rising from the depths of the cyber realm stands i_o. The enigmatic producer has built an undeniable reputation with his progressive techno stances, carving out slices of robust bass lines and melodic chords for underground pleasure.” — Earmilk

“Beneath the seams of the overabundance of happy-go-lucky EDM, there lies the realm of i_o’s House of God EP. Raising techno demons from the depths of the mau5trap label, i_o brings us his biggest and darkest EP release to date.” — EDM Tunes

“i_o’s House of God EP makes us believers.” — NOISEPRN

House of God spans a large expanse of the techno genre in just four tracks, from the melodic to the groovy. A true representation of i_o’s production prowess.” — CULTR

SLANDER upcoming Tour Dates by Brian Rapaport

image1.png

SLANDER’s dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, Excision, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more. Amongst dozens of chart-topping remixes, their original Heaven Trap hit “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ has been listened to over 10 million times while being championed by Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint.

Beyond building a mint name for themselves through jaw-dropping original productions and massive collaborations, SLANDER also include “label heads” to their resume. The LA-based duo recently turned their popular Gud Vibrations brand into an official record label with good friend NGHTMRE ensuring their legions of fans that their famous GUD VIBES are only getting started. Based on their Mad Decent released single “Gud Vibrations”, best friends NGHTMRE and SLANDER decided to build their brand together, supporting good music, good friendships, and good vibes. Their GV brand has seen exponential growth with a world-wide audience. Back to back sellout nights headlining the Hollywood Palladium was quickly followed by selling out the NOS event center with 10,000 fans while at the same time taking the dance music scene by storm with the first appearance of their new mind-blowing stage production, “The Atom”. In 2017 and 2018 they took “THE ATOM” to sold out shows at Red Rocks, as well as curating their own stage with it at Nocturnal Wonderland.

Attesting to their dynamic nature as artists, SLANDER’s productions range from cinematic and melodic to bone-jarring and foot-stomping, always with a common thread of sophisticated soundscapes and captivating energy which they will bring to some of the biggest festival brands around the world this summer.

Later on, over Labor Day Weekend (September 1), SLANDER and NGHTMRE will present the Gud Vibrations stage at New York’s largest and longest running electronic music festival Electric Zoo. The stage will highlight performances from both acts along with other artists especially curated by them including GTA, Boogie T & Squanto, WAVEDASH, Shadient and more.

Immediately following Electric Zoo, the duo will set off with NGHTMRE on their co-headlining “The Alchemy Tour” alongside Seven Lions and the Glitch Mob. A massive undertaking produced by Live Nation brings this stacked show to arenas, amphitheaters, and more for a once-in-a-generation alliance of four artistic powerhouses, will kick off September 4th in Charlotte, NC. and make stops in Pittsburgh, Austin, The Gorge in Seattle, Shorline Amphitheater in San Francisco and more before wrapping October 13th in Phoenix, AZ. The duo will re-engage “The Atom” production for the tour. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com

ELECTRIC ZOO: EVOLVED SPOTLIGHTS PRYDA ARENA SATURDAY, AUGUST 31


WITH ERIC PRYDZ, GREEN VELVET, JORIS VOORN, YOTTO, CHRISTOPH, BEN BOHMER (LIVE), AND MISS JENNIFER

TICKETS ON SALE NOW HERE.

Eric Prydz’s Pryda alias and label has become one of the most influential and respected names in progressive house music. Celebrating its fifteenth anniversary in 2019, Pryda is proud to present an eclectic line-up for his stage at NYC’s largest and longest running electronic music festival Electric Zoo. In addition to a special set from Eric Prydz, the Pryda Arena stage happening on Saturday, August 31 will also feature Green Velvet, Joris Voorn, Yotto, Christoph, Ben Bohmer (live), and Miss Jennifer.

Synonymous with immaculately produced and unique sounding electronic music, Prydz—a platinum selling producer— is responsible for some of the biggest progressive house tracks of the last decade, not to mention some of the most technically impressive live shows of any touring artist. Pryda is Prydz’s most well-known alias, one whose sound is replicated endlessly in dance music. Listen to the discographies of any current electronic music success and you can hear Pryda’s influence—the ‘Pryda sound,’ comprised of immaculately layered melodies and harmonies, is now almost a sub-genre unto itself. Pryda’s origins can be traced back to 2004, with the releases of “Aftermath (2005), “Muramyi” (2007) and “Pjanoo” (2008) solidifying the Pryda name within the new breed of progressive house. The 2012 release of the three-disc album Eric Prydz Presents Pryda offers a full retrospective of one dance music’s most storied discographies.

ELECTRIC ZOO: EVOLVED takes place over Labor Day Weekend August 31, September 1 & 2
at Randall’s Island Park in New York City.

TICKETS ON SALE NOW AT WWW.CUBEV3.COM.

With the opening dates of his North American ‘cube v3 tour’ less than 35 days away, world-renowned electronic artist deadmau5 is pleased to announce the members of his mau5trap label family who are joining him as support on the tours first shows this September in Dallas, Austin, and Los Angeles. These include i_o as direct support on all dates, with No Mana, Monstergetdown, ATTLAS, BlackGummy, Sara Landry, and EDDIE on select dates. Canadian pop star Lights will join as special guest throughout. Exact billing can be found below and look for additional support talent to be announced soon for the remainder of the tour.

Produced by Live Nation, the 16-city tour will kick off September 12 in Dallas and will see deadmau5 bringing his brand new cubev3 production to major markets across the continent. His fourth major North American tour with the cube will find him landing in Austin, San Francisco, Phoenix, Chicago, San Jose, Seattle, and more. Los Angeles has deadmau5 returning to Hollywood’s legendary Palladium where he first broke records of most continuous sold-out shows in a row in 2011. Before launching his stateside leg deadmau5 will take his cube to Creamfields this August for it’s U.K. debut.

About the artists:

i_o
From the corner of the cyber realm comes . Combining hard techno grooves with dark evolving melodies, i_o brings together dance music’s finest. With influences ranging from deadmau5 to UMEK to techno’s most underground, i_o is poised to take over the world’s main stages with driving sets that grasp and don’t let go. 2018 saw an overwhelming amount of releases on mau5trap including his 2018 hit “Low” as well as his most recent Death by Techno EP. This yea also saw his follow-up collaboration with Tommy Trash on the label, including a remix of deadmau5’ “Imaginary Friends” remix via we are friends vol. 008. With co-signs from deadmau5, Above and Beyond, Armin Van Buren, Andrew Rayel, and Jauz, i_o is undoubtedly a rising force in the electronic soundscape.

No Mana
Jordan Orcaz (P.K.A. No Mana) is a music producer and digital visual artist based in Orange County. The name “No Mana” initially started as a gaming joke, and inevitably became the theme of the entire project. In 2014, he took the alias promptly after attending a few of his first festivals. Since then, as the project presented itself with a hybrid electro, techno and progressive house style of electronic dance music, complemented with the theme of a pixelated bottle of a magic potion, the producer has built relationships with, or, by the least, gained attention from the likes of deadmau5, Zedd, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Knife Party, and more. After independently publicizing himself with his free releases of his UP series, such relationships gave him leeway to opportunities such as: the debut label release of “Tell Me More”, a melodic production with a vocal collaboration with Jessica Ess, under deadmau5’s label mau5trap; releases and building relationships with Anjuna and Armada; and booking opportunities with notable festivals like EDC (Las Vegas, Orlando, and New York), Electric Zoo, Ultra, Beyond Wonderland, and many artists such as deadmau5, Feed Me, REZZ, Nero, and Jason Ross. While the artist remains loyal on mau5trap, he continued to release quasi-LP/EPs (6-track releases) such as Game Over, Above the Blue, Assorted Repetitions, and Melted Candy; and has collaborated with fellow label mates such as i_o and Fay with the release of “Bad Things”, and EDDIE with “Untitled Forever”. Despite his label loyalty, No Mana is not exclusive to the label and finds himself exploring the idea of working with other labels - one most notable being Anjuna as he released his single, “Panic” with Jessica Ess.

BlackGummy
BlackGummy began as the brainchild of Los Angeles-based producer Iman Marouf. Marouf discovered the entity called “BlackGummy” in 2013 during a trip to the Middle East and Asia, and instantly formed a unique and inseparable bond with the alien-like idol. Since their first meeting, the producer and the entity have virtually conjoined into an indivisible whole, never leaving one another’s side. BlackGummy has an obsessive fascination for sound design and music production. He views his productions as checkpoints in a tireless quest to improve his mastery of this skill, routinely spending 15 hours a day honing his craft. In 2015, mau5trap discovered BlackGummy, and immediately recognized his unique prowess for production and sound design. Later that year, the label released BlackGummy’s first original — “Lullaby” — on mau5trap’s we are friends compilation, which Earmilk called a “can’t miss.” In February 2016, mau5trap released BlackGummy’s debut EP titled Singularity inspired by the concept of “technological singularity,” which Dancing Astronaut praised as “an intriguing artistic vision,” which “moves uninhibited from dark industrial to uplifting progressive, challenging the notion that producing one style necessitates ignoring the other.”

ATTLAS
Over the course of the past four years, ATTLAS (Canadian musician Jeff Hartford) has become one of mau5trap’s most celebrated artists. Since his first mau5trap releases, ATTLAS has developed an enthusiastic fan base that awaits each release with bated breath. They particularly embraced his two hour-long Storyline mixes in 2016 which incorporate dialogue into music. Hartford realized he was regularly listening to DJ sets while he was simply cooking or doing other day-to-day activities and was much more immersed in them than he would be in a nightclub setting. ATTLAS looks to debuting his first album in fall 2019 – a body of work that’s been in progress for months. The album will “synthesize all the experiences and wandering paths that ATTLAS walks,” according to Hartford, bringing together heavier sounds and the emotive melodies he’s built his musical brand on. “[The album is me] trying to learn who I am and tell my story through music, which has given me so much and has been a home for me: a place to create, a shelter from the storm, and a launch pad into the greatest adventure of my life.”


Monstergetdown

Monstergetdown was born from a need to create not only new music, but new soundscapes altogether. He’s as much an artist as he is a shape-shifter– moving between genres seamlessly and taking to the streets to turn everyday sounds into groovy and atmospheric house and techno. Growing up in Boyle Heights, an area just east of downtown Los Angeles, Monstergetdown began producing amid his discovery of artists like Green Velvet, Surkin, deadmau5, Paco Osuna, Stimming and Tim Green in 2007. In the shadow of a city famous for artifice, he used his love of music to start building something real and raw – a mix of house and techno. With release of his mau5trap Blakmajik EP, his track “That’s That” garnered attention from Pete Tong who played it out on his BBC1 Radio show. As he continues to tour with deadmau5 in both the US and Europe, Monstergetdown continues to expand and create sounds that go far beyond his LA roots.

Sian
Classic modern techno is exactly what Sian represents. When you have interests ranging from entomology, cosmology and marine biology, to the social impact of the rave generation, you tend to make unusual art. Sian stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent. Born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in southern Spain, he chose early to drop out of normal society and engage in the extraordinary. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of club culture, his tracks show an otherworldly, slow and hypnotic slant on big speaker electronic music. Sian just released his first installment of his Ultraviolet EP series on mau5trap in May. Ultraviolet 2.0 is due out later this summer.

Sara Landry
Austin, TX’ Sara Landry is a 25-year-old techno producer, DJ, sound designer and audio engineer. She prides herself on her Ableton chops and designs every detail of each track she writes, including all production, sound design, arranging, mixing, mastering, and vocals (where necessary). This approach has allowed Sara to rack up a notable list of accomplishments since the release of her first single in 2018; her music has been featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists (Techno Bunker, Electronic Circus, Electronic Rising), and in 2019 she signed to mau5trap, where she released her first multi-track techno EP Wait this past May.

EDDIE
Edwin Beganovic, popularly known as EDDIE, is not shy to the music industry. With his most recent EP release Disembodied in May of this year on mau5trap, EDDIE is quickly becoming a favorite with support from deadmau5, Rezz, Kayzo, and many others. EDDIE is not confining himself to a genre; he’s been creating music that is a combination between techno and electro without any BPM restrictions. The combination of the different styles of music is what has propelled EDDIE to where he is today, with over a total of one million streams on his Bad Habits EP released in 2018. EDDIE is a name to be watching throughout 2019, with lots of new music coming out he isn’t going to stop any time soon.

The original cube debuted at Coachella April 2010, catapulting deadmau5 to become one of the most in-demand live acts int the world, with its follow-up Cube 2.1 arriving in 2017 at the launch of his “lots of shows in a row tour.” cubev3 - created by deadmau5 with Chris Schroeder of Chris Schroeder Productions, with technical design by Collyns Stenzel, and video content plus additional programming by deadmau5 - comes to life from Miami with the semitransparent look and deadmau5 custom content. Cubev3 will be the most complex production he has ever presented changing positions from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and rotate 360 degrees with mind bending content from deadmau5 & his custom touch designer system.

THE CRYSTAL METHOD TO APPEAR AT SAINT ROCKE IN HERMOSA BEACH THIS FRIDAY, JULY 12 by Brian Rapaport

THE CRYSTAL METHOD TO APPEAR AT SAINT ROCKE IN HERMOSA BEACH THIS FRIDAY, JULY 12

ALBUM ‘THE TRIP HOME’ OUT NOW

tcm hermosa .png

Grammy-nominated electronic music artist THE CRYSTAL METHOD (Scott Kirkland)—is coming to Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach this Friday, July 12 to support his latest studio album THE TRIP HOME.

For THE TRIP HOME— The Crystal Method’s sixth studio album—Kirkland dove deep into it’s decades-spanning discography. Equal parts throwback and dynamic futurism, the tracks are produced with Glen Nicholls (Future Funk Squad) as well as Matt Lange, La Castle Vania and Teflon Sega. The Album — which debuted at #1 on iTunes Electronic Album chart and #44 on the main album chart, as well as #2 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Album Chart—-garnered excellent reviews.

For more than two decades, THE CYSTAL METHOD has remained at the forefront of the worldwide dance music industry as pioneers of the big beat genre, innovators of the ‘90s electronica movement, and current-day global ambassadors of the American electronic sound. Of their last five studio albums, two were number one in the Electronic music charts, two were top three, while their debut Vegas was released before anyone even thought of having an electronic album chart and is hailed to this day as one of the defining albums of electronic music.

They have appeared on over 100 soundtracks, in over 50 major motion picture trailers, and scored films, documentaries, video games, and TV series for everyone from Ben Stiller to JJ Abrams. Recently The Crystal Method scored the theme title for Guillermo Del Toro’s animation series “3 Below.” Check out the trailer featuring TCM’s music here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulgjg4oOqaU

Musically, they have collaborated with Rick Rubin, Ozzy Osbourne, Tom Morello, Alan Parsons, and Old Dirty Bastard among others, while they have toured with a wide genre of artists ranging from Guns N’ Roses and Tool, to The Prodigy, Korn, and The Chemical Brothers. Originally formed as a duo, alongside now retired founding member Ken Jordan, THE CRYSTAL METHOD today lives and breaths as a solo act, with co-founder and originator Scott Kirkland at the helm. And with the artistic reboot comes the next chapter in THE CRYSTAL METHOD timeline: THE TRIP HOME.

unnamed (1).jpg

Canada’s fastest rising dance act LOUD LUXERY (Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace) will embark on their first ever major headlining North American tour this Fall. Launching August 29 in Salt Lake City, LOUD LUXERY’S “NIGHT’S LIKE THIS” TOUR will take the duo on a two-month long trek to many markets along each of the continent’s coasts and in-between. The full routing follows below. Joining LOUD LUXERY on select dates will be special guests CID, Dzeko, MEDUZA, Bijou, Black Caviar, Frank Walker, Justin Caruso, and Midnight Kids. Tickets go on-sale this Thursday July 11 at 10 AM PST // 11 AM MST // 12 PM CST // 1 PM EST at www.loudluxerymusic.com

In addition to the tour news, this Friday, July 12, LOUD LUXERY and Bryce Vine (“Drew Barrymore, “ La La Land” ft YG) will release their new single “I’m Not Alright” (Armada Music/Sire) as the follow up to their smashes “Body” and “Love No More.” Pre-save the single here: https://armadamusic.presave.io/t/llbvina

“We met Bryce at a party in LA through a friend when we got back from our fall tour. The next day, he came over and showed us an idea he made that was just a guitar and the chorus,” says LOUD LUXERY. “During our winter tour we worked across North America in hotel rooms, studios, and even an Uber with our headphones to finish writing the song. At the end of the day we are all human, we all make mistakes, but this song is about coming to terms with your flaws.”

It’s been an amazing ride for LOUD LUXERY (Andrew Fedyk and Joe De Pace). Since the June-Award winning duo debuted on Armada Music in late 2017 with their now worldwide smash hit “Body” (feat. brando)— the most played song on dance radio for all of 2018—they sold platinum across the globe (7x in Canada, 3x in Australia, 2x in Switzerland, and 1x in the U.K U.S., Netherlands, Austria and more), held the #1 spot in the U.S. Mediabase Dance Airplay chart for two weeks, charted in the Top 40 of U.S. Pop radio and the U.K’s Official Singles Chart (#4) and accumulated hundreds of millions of plays across the most popular streaming services on Spotify alone in it’s first month and currently sits at an impressive 86 million+ plays on the streaming platform. On top of the “Nights Like This” tour, also look for Loud Luxery to make their debut at Lollapalooza in Chicago and on the mainstage of Tomorrowland in Europe this summer alongside Parookaville, Mysteryland and a slew of other festivals, in addition to their residency plays at Hakkasan, Omnia and Wet Republic in Las Vegas.

One of the most dynamic artists in the electronic genre right now, PORTER ROBINSON can now add event producer to his remarkable list of accomplishments. On Saturday, June 15 and Sunday 16, 2019, Robinson launched his inaugural SECOND SKY FESTIVAL to great success.

Over 30,000 fans made their way to Middle Harbor Shoreline Park in Oakland, CA over the two days to take in performances by international artists specially curated by Robinson. The sold-out event featured on both days Madeon (DJ set), Cashmere Cat, Kero Kero Bonito, Chrome Sparks, Anamanaguchi, Wednesday Campanella, and Nina Las Vegas. G Jones made appearance on the Saturday.

Robinson’s longtime friend Skrillex generated a special festival moment as the special surprise guest on the Sunday, revealing himself out of the festival mascot Pataro. The pinnacle of each day was Porter Robinson’s Second Sky headlining performance where he marked the return of his groundbreaking “Worlds Live show for it’s only 2019 appearance.

Photo Jun 15, 11 30 30 PM.jpg

The Saturday, June 15 show was live streamed in partnership with Twitch Music, with a repeat airing. Over 1.6 million fans around the globe tuned in to watch Robinson’s “Worlds Live” set and others.

The event also raised over $154,000 for the Robinson-Malawi Fund. In 2016, Robinson’s 17-year-old brother Mark was diagnosed with Burkitt Lymphoma, an aggressive, fast growing cancer. After intensive treatment at the University of North Carolina Hospital from his doctors and the rest of their staff, Mark was eventually cure and is now thriving. To give back, Porter started the fund to help children with this same condition in the country of Malawi. In the united States, Burkitt lymphoma is very rare and more than 90% of children survive. In Malawi, where it is the most common childhood cancer, the survival rate can be as low as 29%. Dr. Kate Westmoreland, one of Mark’s doctors, leads the pediatric cancer program there called UNC Project Malawi. For more information, log on to: www.robinsonmalawifund.org.

Presented by Goldenvoice, PORTER ROBINSON’S SECOND SKY FESTIVAL was a one-of-a-kind unique event for his fans. Look for the event to return in 2020.

Critical praise for Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Festival in the media:

“When was the last time you saw the headliner at a major festival play the first set of the day? Such was the novelty of Porter Robinson opening his own Second Sky Festival under his alias Virtual Self. ‘Hey, everyone, welcome to Second Sky!’ he told the still-forming noontime crowd at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, a small plot of land on the Port of Oakland outskirts with a terrific, albeit foggy, view of San Francisco Bay. ‘The main reason I’m doing this is because there’s a ton of amazing artists I want to share with you.’ June 15-16 marked the inaugural edition of Second Sky, the festival Robinson founded in partnership with Goldenvoice… Tickets for the festival sold out in less than an hour, prompting the team to add a second date with the same performers (minus G Jones, who was replaced on June 16 with an unannounced “special guest.”)
Both days capped out at 15,000 attendees each.” —
Billboard

“As artist-curated festivals become an increasingly common part of the business, Porter Robinson’s inaugural Second Sky Festival, done in partnership with Goldenvoice, delighted some 30,000 fans in Oakland, Calif., June 15-16. The event is already promising a return in 2020.”Pollstar

“Robinson is regarded not just as a stellar performer, but as the creator of one of American dance music’s benchmark cultural experiences.” — Mixmag

“Madeon and Porter Robinson reunited at the latter’s own Second Sky Music Festival this weekend and it was absolutely glorious. We honestly can’t think of a better time or place for the two masterful producers to come together once again for a rare performance like this one.” — YourEDM

“As someone who doesn’t know a whole lot about EDM, Porter Robinson’s Second Sky Festival at Oakland’s Middle Harbor Shoreline Park was a great gateway for those unfamiliar with the genre. 10 acts took the stage throughout the day, most new to me except with the special guest showed up and turned out to be Skrillex. The crowd went crazy… The main event and host Porter Robinson had a great set in which his music flowed with the on-screen visuals that included Japanese-inspired animation and imagery of fictional worlds. During the set, he mentioned that he likes to create worlds through his music and the accompanying visual arts on screen. That really drew me in, as both elements made it feel as though a story was being told through his set — something you don’t experience much at rock shows.” The Bay Bridged
