ation surrounding Ultra Music Festival‘s special guest headliner continues, as we close in on the final few days before the festival.
Swedish House Mafia is the prime contender for that prized slot, and there is certainly some evidence to back that up. However, Daft Punk, Skrillex and Jack U, are also high on the list possibilities. It seems like everyone has their own opinion on who they think it will be, including two-time DJ Mag #1 winner Hardwell.During an interview with Slam.nl, the EDM star weighed in on who he thinks will be closing down the festival. The Revealed Recordings boss responded to the question that has been making the rounds in everyone’s minds by saying:
“Do you know why I think this? I looked at the facts and the deciding factor for me was that Steve Angello, one of the three members of SHM, cancelled his Asia tour out of the blue, suddenly doesn’t have any shows planned, and he is in Miami. For me, this means that it has to happen.”
This is just the latest in a long list of evidence to suggest a reunion is in the cards. Earlier this month, the trio’s former lighting tech dropped a huge hint that a return was being plotted. There was also speculation surrounding memorial patches sent out to ticketholders for Ultra 2018, the event’s 20th anniversary, which apparently contained a secret clue about this year’s surprise guests. There is even some speculation that Alesso will replace Steve for a reunion performance.
Regardless of who the surprise headliner may be, Axwell & Ingrosso are headlining the festival on Friday night, with or without Steve Angello. However, quite honestly, I think everyone is hoping for the rumors of the trio reuniting to be true. I know I am.
Contrasting Carl Cox’s 30-year career, with Martin Garrix’s explosive rise to fame, the documentary includes interviews with heavy hitters such as Erick Morillo, Moby, David Guetta, Afrojack, Paul Oakenfold, Seth Troxler, and Tiësto.
The film is available for pre-order on iTunes ahead of the premiere in Miami on Thursday, March 22nd. The producers of What We Started have also released a never before seen clip focused on Martin Garrix’s track ‘Animals’ which ignited his career. You can view it below.
Many commenters were quick to declare it as a complete fake, and we’ve certainly suffered through plenty of those. The username is obviously a burner, but its called User19972001200420132019. It’s a bit on the nose, but this could stand for album releases (although 2004 is off)? While many reactions were negative, some commenters found legitimate evidence that this could be the real thing.
Basically, the mods of the Daft Punk subreddit are somewhat aware of the “leak” source and have found that it could be reputable. There is a tale of a previous “leak” of ‘Overnight’ which followed the same pattern prior to release.
Comment from discussion x.
Could this be Daft Punk dropping a hint for their biggest fans? Even if this is a fake, aren’t you glad to speculate about something besides Swedish House Mafia? Check out the full discussion below.
New year means new music, right? Well, with not much word from Flume since his blessed album Skin, we finally got a treat. Known for a super-friendly atmosphere and awesome line-ups, Field Day Festival is the best way to celebrate New Year’s. For the 17th year, Field Day became a rite of passage for Sydney residents as beyond wanting to start their year off with a bang. All the hip-hop, house and electronic artists from around the world gathered here in celebration. VinceStaples, ScHoolBoyQ, DJSnake, Baauer, and many more were secured as talent. Joining the festivities was the Australian producer himself. He previewed a brand new ID, which means someone’s been hard at work in the studio.
A fan captured the live moment and post it to for us to enjoy. The track is classic Flume— light, cheerful, and defined by its eccentric electronic embellishments. Sprinkle it with mounting percussive elements, the ID distinguishes itself as a pending would-be fan favorite. His style is renowned and something you can tell right off the bat. Of all the enchanting past remix albums and companion EPs that graced our ears, our hearts need more. So, when is the release?
A definitive timescale by when new music from Mr. Future Bass will arrive remains elusive. But his gift of this ID gives us all something to hope for. We anticipate new music is on the horizon from him. For those that haven’t heard of Flume, now is the time to do so. The continuation of his era will make this year even better. Perhaps if he keeps this trend up long enough during the year, we may just have our wish. While we wait with baited breath, enjoy the video of the new ID below.
