Each year, the legendary trance trio known as Above & Beyond take over the RC Cola Plant during Miami Music Week to put down one of the week’s best shows. This year, the event was one of the first MMW events announced with Seven Lions as their special guest. However, the remaining supporting cast was not yet known… until today.
A&B must’ve seen the growing the rumblings on Above & Beyond and Anjunabeats forums. Fans had begun asking who and when the lineup for their RC Cola event would drop. Well, ask and you shall receive. This year’s lineup will feature Ben Bohmer, Spencer Brown, Qrion, and Oliver Smith. In addition of course will be Ophelia boss Seven Lions and of course the Anjunabeats bosses themselves.
Each year A&B’s MMW event exceeds expectations. Two years ago Eric Prydz joined the party as the special guest, while this year’s special guest will surely turn up the energy. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, act fast as they are going quickly. You can grab tickets here and check out the lineup below.

DJ Snake’s album is set to drop this summer.
The Parisian superstar known as DJ Snake has been known to collaborate with some of the hottest acts in hip-hop. His latest release, titled “Enzo,” links up some of the biggest heavyweights yet. Offset, 21 Savage, Sheck Wes, and Gucci Mane all throw down verses to make this potentially one of the hottest collaborations of the year. After the viral success of his hit “Taki Taki”, featuring Cardi B, Ozuna, and Selena Gomez, big shoes were left to be filled. With a lineup like this, however, there’s no doubt the charts will take notice.
“Enzo” has a dark, steady beat that flexes Snake’s hip-hop roots. Wes carries the catchy chorus. All four rappers deliver their individual smooth stylings, flashing their love for high-profile cars. It’s hard not to make a fire song when you have so many chart-toppers on one track.
Snake spoke to Beat 1’s Zane Lowe announcing he would release a new album this summer. He said to expect a “carnival,” so we can look forward to some global sounds coming our way in a few months. Though he didn’t announce who would be featured on the album, after the release of “Enzo” we know the French producer’s reach knows no bounds.
DJ Snake is coming off a hot performance at Coachella. He closed out his hourlong set by bringing out all the stars from “Taki Taki” making it a set you did not want to miss. He also recently released a track with dubstep DJ/producer Eptic titled “South Side.” The French producer is widely known for his globally successful hits such as “Lean On” with Major Lazer, and “Turn Down For What” featuring Lil Jon. Whatever this man touches turns to gold.

The Australian producer also announced new tour dates.
Speculation has been at an all-time high these past few months in regards to Flume‘s return to music. After the surprise mixtape Hi This Is Flume was released, fan theories came out that the drop date would be June 21st, 2019, the first day of summer. Not being one to follow expectations, he dropped the new track “Let You Know” on June 12th. Does anyone else think he caught on and just decided to drop it on the flipped number?
“Let You Know” features the beautiful vocals of London Grammar, known famously for her work with Disclosure on “Help Me Lose My Mind.” Her soulful voice pairs perfectly with the funky drums and amalgamation of pattern skips. The sharp synth work ties in directly with some of the noises we heard from the mixtape. It’s eclectic yet delightfully palatable.
In explanation of the collaboration, Flume said:
“[London Grammar vocalist] Hannah Reid and I wrote ‘Let You Know’ last summer. I was on a writing trip to London, was actually the same trip where I first met slowthai. Had been wanting to make something with Hannah for a long time and this one just came together really naturally in the studio that day.”
In addition to the song drop, Streten announced a U.K./European headline tour. Beginning this August until November, he will also make stops in North America, Asia, and Oceania.

High tempos, euphoric melodies, and heavy basslines bring back classic energy to 2018.
W&W have been front and center in the world’s EDM scene since 2012, and active for over a decade since the two members of the group, Willem van Hanegem and Wardt van der Harstm, crossed paths for the first time. They discovered their mutual interests in music production, and quickly the two began to realize that they had an incredible workflow. Music started to flow out of their studio, and after years of production and experimentation, W&W formed their label, Mainstage Music, which has seen releases from artists like Armin van Buuren, Andrew Rayel, Dash Berlin, 3LAU, and Markus Schulz among others.
W&W are known for being diverse producers, with their music always reflecting the times. Their sound has always moved around the spectrum. The duo began producing Trance music, and over time, their focus shifted towards producing Big Room House. Their contributions to the world of Big Room House set them aside from other producers and ensured that W&W would be a household name at massive EDM events for years to come. Anybody who has visited their fair share of festivals over the course of a few years has seen musical styles change and evolve. Music is truly a snapshot of a moment in time, and W&W are exceptionally skilled at taking said snapshot.
Come 2018, musical styles are changing once again. W&W have not only adapted to this change but also set the course of a new direction for dance music to go in once again. Their newest releases, “Long Way Down” with Darren Styles and “God is a Girl” with Groove Coverage, signal a change in direction in dance music from slower rhythmic beats to faster and more euphoric and melodic tracks. The style, once called Hands Up, was popular in the 2000’s, and it’s anthemic/melodic style significantly influenced elements of modern day hard music (Hardstyle/Hardcore).
We talked to W&W about their new tracks, how they ended up on this new path, and what we can expect from this EDM supergroup in the future.
EDM.com: Hi guys! Thank you for talking to us. First off, how’s everything going in the world of W&W?
W&W: Thanks for having us 🙂 All is well, we just came back from an amazing tour in China and Japan, and now preparing for the festival season!
EDM.com: Could you please tell us your story, and how you came about to start producing music?
W&W: We both just fell in love with music and especially electronic music from a young age and were curious about how it was made. You basically just needed a computer and a software program to get into it, so that’s how it all started.
EDM.com: So, you have a new record out with Darren Styles. Could you tell us about it?
Check out “Long Way Down” here.
W&W: We were actually listening to one of Darren’s records last summer and we got really inspired by it. So we decided to message him and see if he was up for doing something together. Then he sent back the vocal he just got from Giin and we loved it so much that we started working on it immediately! We went back and forward online with Darren exchanging ideas and the project and managed to get a playable version ready before Tomorrowland last year. For us it’s a bit of a different sounding record with a very high BPM, but the reactions on it are really overwhelming!
EDM.com: We’ve noticed that you guys have been significantly changing your style recently, with tracks like “Long Way Down” at 160 BPM and “God is a Girl” at 145 BPM. Your new style is reminiscent of Hardstyle, and a revamped modern version of classic Hands Up. Could you tell us about how you chose to go in this direction? What inspired you to change your direction?
W&W: We are always looking for new challenges in the studio and new sounds to improve our DJ sets. Listening to the same kind of style for an hour and a half is just not working anymore and it’s actually also no fun to stick to one style in general. We like to take the people on a journey in our sets and surprise them. The music we release is a reflection of what you hear in our sets so it will never be limited to one genre only. Now we got into the old Euro/Hands Up style again, it’s just amazing to see how much people love it, and tracks like “God Is A Girl” and “Long Way Down”’ really are highlights in our current set.
What inspired us to make these kinds of tracks are of course the old ones (like God Is A Girl), but also just the feeling you get from the crowd. You have to feel what they are cracking next and I think we did.
This doesn’t automatically mean our next release will all be in this sound as well though, we have a few new tracks we are testing now, but they are quite different from the Hands Up ones.
EDM.com: What genre do you consider your new tracks to be in?
W&W: Hands Up 2018 maybe? Haha! We Really don’t know, we also don’t really care. There is no need to label it, we just hope people enjoy it!
EDM.com: How has the crowd reacted to the new style so far?
EDM.com: Do you have more tracks in this style coming up?
W&W: We have a few ideas, buts also for other kinds of tracks. We’ll see what’s next!
EDM.com: The video for Long Way Down is very detailed and interesting! Could you tell us about the video, and why you chose to go with an anime-themed approach?
W&W: We love anime and the entire Japanese look and feel and somehow we felt it would be a perfect fit for this track because it’s so fast. It worked out well!
EDM.com: How would you describe the progression of your music, from the day that you started to produce to now?
W&W: It’s a constant learning process, and with the ongoing development of technology that will never stop. We started when we were very young and had absolutely nobody to learn music production from, let alone tutorials online. That wasn’t around at all. So we really had to learn from scratch, but looking back on that it definitely helped us develop our own style and ways of making music.
EDM.com: Where do you see yourselves in the future?
W&W: With a fast moving industry which we are in its good to look ahead, but also not too far. So we try to enjoy every day and are extremely grateful for all the support we are getting around the globe. We do it for the people and the energy we get back from them is what inspires us again and again. As long as we can do what we love most, there is nothing else to wish for.
EDM.com: Thank you for talking to us, we appreciate your time and wish you a busy and successful festival season!
W&W: Thanks guys! Hope to see you on one of the festivals this summer!
