ELECTRIC ISLAND

ANNOUNCES CIVIC HOLIDAY

WITH NINA KRAVIZ, MANO LE TOUGH,

KiNK & MORE!

WHEN: MONDAY, AUGUST 7, 2017
TIME: 1:00 PM – 11:00 PM

PURCHASE TICKETS | EVENT LINK

This past July 1, thousands of Toronto’s electronic music lovers gathered at The Portlands to ring in Canada’s 150th birthday at Electric Island! The day saw mind-blowing performances by industry heavy-weights including Canadian techno-pioneer Richie Hawtin, who closed off the night backed by a dazzling display of fire works across the city’s skyline. It was a celebration we’ll never forget.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that the third summer edition; Electric Island Civic Holiday will take place on Monday, August 7 with another colossal line-up. The main stage welcomes the incredibly versatile and energetic Jackmaster. This Glasgow-native is notorious for hashing up the most surprising records – whether it be a forgotten disco track or bumping techno – Jackmaster can pull just about anything from his sleeve. Joining him will be another legend from across the pond – Irish-born Mano Le Tough. The Maeve label owner is a true sound wizard with an impeccable ear for melody, deep emotive basslines,  and live instrumental breaks. After witnessing a Mano Le Tough set, you’ll be left in awe. Bulgarian live-act KiNK also joins the bill. Another name who is known to embrace experimentation, KiNK expertly weaves listeners between house, techno and broken beat to deliver a memorable performance for all. Taking festival-goers into nightfall will be Russian techno vixen Nina Kraviz. Nina’s success is unparalleled — from her successful label Trip (трип), to her mesmerizing performances behind the decks, she is a force to be reckoned with! And let’s not forget our astounding locals — Jonathan Rosa and Toronto’s illustrious duo, Nature of Music will each be on warm-up duty.

The second stage will see Swiss DJ-Producer Deetron. Deetron owes his expert mixing skills to his early days as a Hip-Hop DJ. Strongly influenced by the sound of Detroit, ‘four-to-the-floor’ became his motto and today he’s best known for producing warm techno with the soul of Detroit. We look forward to his Electric Island debut! Joining Deetron will be the forbearer of the modern funk movement- Dâm-Funk! The American DJ-Producer affirms that funk is a way of life, “a feeling of struggle and staying cool through it all.” Toronto house-hold names Greg Gow, Addy and Jeremy Stott will have the honours of warming up festival-goers at the second stage. It’s going to be another sizzling weekend in the city this Civic Holiday.

Bud Light Dreams Festival 2017 [NAS MEDIA Review]

Friday, July 7 – The day that we have all been waiting for has finally come, Dreams Festival 2017! The festival doors opened at 4PM with a line up of excited fans waiting to enter back into the place where their hearts are stolen every year. The sun was shining down bright on all of the dreamers and they were ready to get their groove on. We headed over to the Dream House stage to watch DJ Hydee put everyone in the Drum and Bass mood. While Hydee was delivering all the DnB, Ryan Shepherd and Jamie Kidd were bringing over some great techno and house vibes to the Echo Beach and Waterfront Stage.

Dreams Fest 2017

As the day continued more and more great acts began to hit the stage, such as What So NotSteve AngelloThomas JackBaauer, and many more!

Dreams Fest 2017

When the evening began to hit, the clouds started to get darker and sounds of thunder were approaching. Unfortunately rain took over the area for about an hour and 45 minutes, and all stages had to shut down briefly while this weather warning took place. Guests began to find cover and everyone was allocated to the Budweiser Stage area to wait out the weather warning.

Dreams Fest 2017

Shortly after, the sun decided to make its entrance once again, and the music started right back up. A little rain won’t stop these dreamers!

Dreams Fest 2017

As the guests made their way back to the main area, the headlining acts took over the three stages, Loco Dice, Andy C, and Above and Beyond. Each stage held different sounds but nonetheless the hype and the fun was definitely present all throughout RBC Echo Beach. Day one closed off with fireworks in the sky, which left Dreamers counting down the hours until they can get their dancing shoes back on for day two.

Dreams Fest 2017

Saturday, July 8 – Day two is here, with the doors opening earlier at 2PM, Dreamers are already pumped and looking forward to the days activities. As Dreamers are entering the grounds, there are a bunch of different vendors, jumping castles, Bud Light Living stations and much more! There were also beautiful art installations on the hills where guests can lounge and hangout with their friends when they needed a little break from all the grooving. Now, let’s get to the music! Day two started off with openers such as Saad Ayub, Mark Oliver, House Yoga, and more!

_JSV2103.jpg

Dreams Fest 2017

Toronto decided to bless us with some incredible weather and gave us blue skies and full shining sun throughout the day. Not a drop of rain was in sight, thank you 6ix God! We headed over to the Dream House stage where Infected Mushroom were playing their electronica beats, leaving the crowd raging and wanting more. If you’ve ever seen Infected Mushroom play live, you know what we’re talking about. They truly bring the energy to another level during their sets.

_MG_7588.jpg

We decided to make our way over to the Waterfront stage, where a completely different vibe took place throughout this area. The stage was covered with a variety of leaves representing a type of jungle/forest aesthetic. There was a little hill that guests could sit/lounge on while watching their favourite DJ’s perform in front of them.

_MG_7633.jpg

As we arrived to this stage, we were lucky to see the one and only DJ Hanzel (aka Dillon Francis) head onto the stage dressed in his German persona, wearing Ray Ban sunglasses and a buttoned up black dressed shirt.

_MG_7831.jpg

He brought all of the deep house vibes and literally left the fans screaming for more. There were signs that fans made of DJ Hanzel throughout the crowd and a lot of die hard fans ecstatic that DJ Hanzel made his first appearance in Toronto. [We’re definitely the lucky ones, here.]

_MG_7645

We grooved over to the Echo Beach stage where DVBBS was performing and without surprise, they already had the crowd going wild within just a few minutes of their set. CO2 cannons blasting and the heat of fire blazing out from the stage was more than enough to have fans even more ecstatic while listening to DVBBS big room house tunes. Watching DVBBS perform live is always a fun time because the energy they bring to the stage is always at level 100.

_MG_8183.jpg_MG_7978.jpg

As the evening hit, the headliners came through… MalaaMarkus Schulz, and Dillstradamus entered onto their stages. Malaa brought the dance and electronic music to the Waterfront stage where guests were packed side to side waiting to see the French producer. Moving on to the Dream House, Markus Schulz brought the trance vibes and had the Dream House tent full to capacity with fans raving to their favourite tunes from this German-American DJ.

Dreams Fest 2017

Last but not least, over at the Echo Beach stage was Dillstradamus, where two incredible DJ’s Dillon Francis and Flosstradamus paired together for an unimaginable trap/house set. It was the duos first time performing together as Dillstradamus in Toronto and boy, were we in for a treat. The main stage was packed with ravers chanting for their favourite trap and Moombahton DJ.

Dreams Fest 2017

Their entrance to the stage was unlike no other, with deep bass vibing through the speakers and lines of fire repeatedly covering the front of the stage, both of the DJ’s entering the stage separately on two risen platforms. As soon as they stepped up on the platforms the crowd went wild, the fire was still blazing throughout the stage and the trap beats began to come through.

_MG_8275

They were playing songs from hip hop artists such as Lil Uzi VertDrake, as well as some original songs by Dillon Francis and by Flosstradamus. The two DJ’s of the hour ended their set with fireworks in the sky and a lot of big thank you’s to their Toronto fans.

_MG_8450.jpg

Dreams Festival continues to show that year after year, the City of Toronto continues to stand out with their events and nightlife. This was only the first festival of the summer and there are still many more to come. We may be biased, but nobody holds a festival like our city does. Toronto ravers and fans will forever go hard for their favourite artists and our music scene is still stronger than ever. Thank you Dreams Festival for having Nas Media out once again and we are already looking forward to next year!

THOMAS GOLD DROPS HUGE NEW FREE TRACK ‘YOU KNOW’!

01 Thomas Gold by Natascha Romboy.jpg

As if gifting fans around the world with one massive track after another wasn’t good enough of late, Thomas Gold today casually drops a completely free banger into the mix.  To get your copy, simply click on the link below and follow Thomas’ ‘FanFare’ Spotify playlist before the download expires on July 12th.

DOWNLOAD THOMAS GOLD ‘YOU KNOW’ FOR FREE

Thomas has had an absolutely outstanding year so far. ‘You Know’ follows on from huge international hits ‘Magic’, ‘Better Versions of Myself’ and most recently ‘The Chant’, which won glowing reviews from the likes of Dancing Astronaut, Earmilk and Noise Porn.

As with ‘The Chant’, ‘You Know’ sees him dive right back into the energetic, progressive, club-focused sound that first bought him to the world’s attention. Rhythm is absolutely key to the production, with the various elements – horn synths, driving vocal, insistent bass – running in and out of each other to build simple but incredibly effective swells of energy, creating a monster peak-time DJ weapon.

Not forgetting that it’s “that time of year again”, fans of Thomas can show their support by heading over to the 2017 DJ Mag Top 100. Always guaranteed to kick up a lively debate across the electronic music world, there’s still no denying the poll’s presence in the annual calendar, or the importance of getting pedigree artists in its ranks.

With the second half of his long player ‘Revelation’ imminent, plus major music news still to be unveiled, 2017 just keeps on getting better and better for Thomas Gold. For more information on all things Gold, visit www.thomas-gold.com.

Thomas Gold ‘The Chant’ is out now to stream and download via Armada Music (FIRE LINK).

Toronto DJ/Producer Saad Ayub: Interview with [NAS MEDIA]

Saad -new press.jpg

We had the chance to chat with Toronto DJ and producer Saad Ayub before his anticipated performance at the upcoming Bud Light Dreams Festival this July 7-8th. Ayub discussed his biggest inspirations, some tips for up and coming DJ’s, and what’s next for him and his music in 2018. Saad Ayub will be playing Toronto’s ‘Dreams Festival’ on Saturday, July 8. Tickets & more info click here.

If you can’t wait until Dreams Festival to hear Saad Ayub, he will be doing a street mix on Z103 this Monday, June 26 on the Drive @ 5, listeners can tune in!

Saad Z103 Dreams.png

Read on to learn more about Saad Ayub and what he will be up to.

We know that you will be performing this summer at Dreams Festival this upcoming July. How does it feel to perform at one of the biggest festivals in Toronto and showcase your music to thousands of fans?

 It is an absolute honour and privilege to play any major festival: Dreams is definitely top of the list for me as far as fests to perform at. The hometown crowd always brings a special vibe and energy, and I’m super excited to showcase some fresh, unreleased tracks I’ve been working on.

How has your music evolved since you first began producing?

If you follow my radio show you can hear on the intro jingle that I try to tell my life stories through my music. The sounds I produce revolve around how I feel and which direction my life is taking at any given time, and I feel I connect with my fans in great depth due to that. It’s hard to describe the evolution of my sound, but constant change is definitely there, and one of my main focuses is to push and try new things.

Who is your biggest inspiration? / Who do you have a lot of respect for?

Armin Van Buuren for giving me the opportunities to showcase my music on his label, Ferry Corsten for his unique sound of music and Aly & Fila for pushing that harder style of Trance Music.

What single night out has been the most memorable for you? As a DJ? As an attendee?

As a DJ, the most memorable night for me was my closing set for the Digital Dreams 2013 After Party at Footwork. People were lined up to see me till 4am and the place was a jam-packed until the very end. As an attendee, there have been too many great ones to mention, but they mostly involve nights at Guv with my crew.

What is one mistake you see a lot of up and coming DJ’s making? What advice would you give to aspiring DJ’s?

CC-ing all DJs in a single email to support their tunes. Not going to lie, I was guilty for doing that too, early on. My advice is to send personalized emails and to know who you are pitching. It is key that you show you know what they’re into, and aren’t just spamming them along with hundreds of others. Never take a spray and pray approach when pitching your tracks for support!

Where do you think the scene is headed? One year from now? Five years from now?

 Globally scene is becoming more Performance based again. In Toronto, its really unpredictable market – even to look ahead six months – but normally after Summer you can have an idea of what’s new and hot. In five years? I think and hope that Rebel will become the hub for Dance Music in Toronto just like how The Guvernment used to be.

What is one sub-genre you think doesn’t get the attention it deserves?

Liquid Drum and Bass

What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you hear it?

I have two, since I couldn’t pick just one 😉

Aly & Fila – First Sun

Armin Van Buuren – Safe Inside You

What are your future plans in producing for 2017?

My 2017 productions are now pretty much finished and I’m now starting to plan for 2018. I have just released two new tracks: one with Sylvia Tosun called “Welcome to the World” on Sea to Sun, and the other one, “Revolution” with Elevation, released on A State of Trance. I have some big tunes lined up to be released starting in August and every 4-6 weeks until the end of the year. Words can’t describe how excited I am to release the upcoming ones. Some big news is coming soon!

Red Bull Sound Select: Block Party Gives You Wings [Nas Media]

Saturday June 17th – Red Bull Sound Select threw quite the block party this past Saturday at the Drake Commissary in Toronto. The day party was scheduled to start at 3PM, however Toronto’s weather had something else planned for the city. There was an issued tornado warning for about two hours over the city but thankfully the Red Bull gods came through and brought some sun over the 6ix, with only a couple hours of the block party being delayed.

As the rain clouds began to part and the sun started to shine through, more and more guests started to arrive, ready to get their groove on to some great local acts and performances. Collectif Nude curated the event and they did a great job with all of the decorations, merchandise on site, and bringing their own style to the party.

There were featured performances by MADDEE, Shagabond, Ralph, and Young Clancy. All of these artists brought a great crowd in front of their stage and brought some wicked vibes to the block party filled with positive energy and created a chill atmosphere with their upbeat pop and synth rhythms. There were also three DJ’s Jayemkayem, Max Melanin, and Ganbei, who brought some great hip-hop and deep house tunes for the crowd in between sets.

DSC_6455DSC_6343DSC_6530

Towards the evening, more and more guests started to show up and the entire lot was filled with smiling faces and happy dancers. This Red Bull Sound Select show was a complete success and we’re glad that we got to be a part of it! We’re hoping Red Bull Sound Select visits our city more often, they sure know how to throw a party.

Danger Drops Epic Music Video for ’19:00′ Ft. Tasha The Amazon

DANGER DROPS EPIC MUSIC VIDEO FOR ’19:00’

(FEAT. TASHA THE AMAZON)

TAKEN FROM HIS DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM ‘太鼓’

OUT NOW VIA 1789 RECORDS

image.png

DANGER, the enigmatic alter ego of Franck Rivoire, today releases a boldly innovative video for ’19:00’, a track taken from his debut studio album ‘太鼓’, out now on Rivoire’s own label, 1789 Records.

WATCH: 19:00 – Danger (feat. Tasha The Amazon)

Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 with a dark sonic identity and a captivating masked performance persona to match, Danger has developed into a unique global phenomenon. With ‘19:00’ he delivers on the expectation of an expansive and provocative soundscape, using Tasha The Amazon’s sultry vocals to offset a steady, tribal drumbeat that gives a nod to the title of the album – ‘Taiko’, meaning percussion in Japanese.

The video for ‘19:00‘ provides us with visual representations of the interrelationship of nature and technology, childhood and adulthood, good and evil, darkness and light. At the centre of this visual dystopia is the idiosyncratic masked man, Danger himself. The dynamic camera action coupled with the beat-driven scene changes add to the sense of foreboding and drama found in the track.

Using his experience as a graphic designer and his long-standing fascination with anime, Danger and his 1789 team have created a stunningly obscure graphic world to compliment this single. By having a hand in making his own videos, graphics, costumes and artwork, Danger maintains creative control and ensures the intended themes are felt throughout all aspects of the album.

In support of the album release, Danger will be on tour in North America. Tickets are available here. Stay up to date with all new announcements via his socials.

Bade Records returns with ‘USER EP’ from BinaryFunction

Bade Records returns this June with ‘USER EP’ from UK-based BinaryFunction.

BADE011 Artwork (1).jpg

Veteran producer BinaryFunction has been honing his craft since the mid-90s. He has delivered an expertly produced three-track EP consisting of exquisite acid techno that draws upon his 90s influences.

He kicks off the release with ‘ACKF1N’, a breakbeat acid banger sure to send any dance floor alight. C0ntr0l follows, a deep hypnotic track with harsh industrial tones and fidgety percussion, perfect for bringing out those ‘eyes closed’ moments of the night. ‘C0NF1GERR0R’ is a raw acid jam with high resonance stabs and free moving bells, skilfully executed to create a tense track to round off the EP.

BinaryFunction’s ‘USER’ EP will be out on 5th June 2017.
