When one finds out that their favorite DJ is in town, they count down the days until their performance. Although the dedicated fan can simply show up at the venue and enjoy the show, there are a number of factors that come into play for the musician that many do realize.
The hours of traveling, producing new music, being away from their loved ones, among much more, can certainly take a toll on their overall well-being and has several repercussions if they aren’t feeling top shape. This is the unfortunate case for the electro-funk duo Chromeo.
The Canadian producers have been busy touring the globe with recent performances at Electric Forest and Glitch Mob at Red Rocks. In a recent post, the group has stated that due to their hectic schedules, they were forced to cancel their Australian tour dates in order to focus on their overall health.
Check Out their Official Statement Below:
Australia please bear with us, we’ll make it to you soon. pic.twitter.com/0167p94F1t

The ‘Juice‘ musicians have made a point to state that they are doing everything in their power to reschedule their highly anticipated performances in Australia.
Until then, we wish the duo a speedy recovery – health is of the utmost importance!

The best way to enjoy Labor Day Weekend.
New York’s Electric Zoo Festival returns to Randall’s Island Park to celebrate its 10th birthday this weekend, upping the ante for the special occasion.
In previous years, the festival dropped hints, clues, even full-blown video promos, for stage designs. The towering elephant, mighty phoenix, raging cobra, and spiralling octopus were some of the most spectacular stages of the festival. With “The Big 10” theme, however, things are quiet. Nevertheless, the mysterious stages will soon tower over attendees this weekend, and knowing the creativity and zeal of the Electric Zoo team, they will dazzle and stun.
One thing we do know for sure is that the lineup is fantastic. Huge performers like Marshmello, Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Kaskade and Alesso headline the festival, while an eclectic array of other acts offer sonic pleasure all across the electronic music spectrum.
There’s plenty of house with artists like Anna Lunoe, Chris Lorenzo, AC Slater, Destructo, Justin Martin, Brohug and Noizu. Pete Tong, Matthias Tanzmann and a special Chris Liebing B2B Dubfire performance make way for a solid offering of techno.
Bassheads can get their dubstep craving courtesy of Zeds Dead, Zomboy, Kill The Noise, Boogie T and Squnto. Plus a rare 12th Planet B2B Doctor P set! Looking for something experimental? Rezz, Space Jesus, G Jones, Eprom and Luzcid, and are there to take you to another dimension.
Chill out with Gryffin, Medasin, Manilla Killa, San Holo, Illenium and Said The Sky. Or, raise your trap arms with Boombox Cartel, Troyboi, Slander, Herobust and 4B. Not to mention, a special Andrew Bayer B2B Ilan Bluestone B2B Jason Ross. Trance heaven.
The festival has come a long way from its first event in 2009, where pre-cake Aoki, fresh-faced Deadmau5 and late legend Frankie Knuckles were on the bill. Since then, Electric Zoo has hosted astounding artists like Carl Cox, Moby, Skrillex, pre and post “Worlds” Porter Robinson (plus Virtual Self this year!), Pretty Lights and Avicii, to name a few.
Over the year, the festival has even been barraged by dust storms, hurricanes, and heavy rain. Though there’s been plenty of clear skies and sunshine to compensate! It’s travelled to Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Tokyo and Shanghai for global events. It’s debuted Green Velvet and Claude von Stroke’s first performance as Get Real, brought Dutch techno powerhouse Awakenings for their first appearance in the US, and partnered with ID&T, the producers behind Mysteryland, Sensation, Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld.
But most importantly, it’s seen dance music ebb and flow. The underground exploded into the mainstream, EDM made waves in the US, big room took over, bass music grew ever more popular, and techno stayed cool all the way through. Electric Zoo was along for the ride, with a seat in New York City, a haven for culture shocks and dance music of all kinds.

Having delved in both techno and dubstep, Scuba aims to merge the two worlds in this throwback mix.
In this edition of One Mix, Beats 1’s weekly radio show, former Berghain resident and Hotflush Recordings label head Scuba takes the decks. Expect tunes from Joy Orbison and Norman Nodge, plus rare tracks from the DJ/producer himself, in a throwback mix capturing the momentous fusion between Berlin techno and UK dubstep.
Tune in here exclusively on Apple Music.
Air Date: Friday 26th October 2018 – 21:00 LA / 00:00 NY / 05:00 UK
Throughout the course of his lengthy musical career, Scuba (real name Paul Rose) has released four albums, numerous EPs and a steady collection of mixes. Slow, gritty, atmospheric sounds mark his style.
With his music label, Hotlfush Recordings, he has provided a platform for burgeoning artists like George Fitzgerald and Mount Kimbie.
Interestingly, Rose is distinguished by his sharp shift in sound over the years. According to former Vice electronic music subdomain THUMP, “Depending on whom you ask, Paul Rose is either one of the biggest sellouts in the underground universe, or the smallest fish in the mainstream sea.”
Born in Britain, Rose got his start making bass-heavy music. Back in a time when dubstep meant broken beats and spacey soundscapes, opposed to the screeches and wails of today. Rose’s debut album, A Mutual Antipathy, remastered a week ago but originally released in 2008, characterizes his former sound.
Moving to Berlin, he helmed a residency at the infamous nightclub Berghain, bringing his dubstep sound to the techno hub. As bass music entered the mainstream and diverged from the sounds Rose embraced, however, he began to look for inspiration elsewhere.
Techno was the answer. No doubt living in Berlin, a city notorious for its techno reverence, fit well with the change.
Though his shifting sound wasn’t part of the conversation, we spoke with Rose ahead of his One Mix. Between hoping Instagram loses its popular appeal and confessing his mom still hasn’t seen him perform to doling out advice for aspiring producers, Rose had plenty to share.

2019 was a sad year for Okeechobee fans. After a late 2018 announcement, the music and arts festival did not return in 2019. The organizers did say that they were planning to return in March 2020. Fortunately, it has been confirmed by a variety of sources that Insomniac has purchased Okeechobee Festival. With Insomniac taking over, it will be interesting to see what they bring to the table.
For Insomniac, Okeechobee will be one of two festivals that they currently own in Florida. The first would be EDC Orlando which takes place in November. Some worried fans have noted that this may lead to artist conflicts. While there have been no radius clause announcements, this likely won’t be an issue.
However, it appears that there is a rising concern due to a venue conflict. The Speckled Perch Festival and Spring PRCA Rodeo already have its dates set at the Sunshine Grove during the weekend Okeechobee would like to return in 2020. Hopefully, any issues will be sorted out so that the beloved festival can return.
