Hey hey! It’s August 13th and we’re back with our weekly roundup feature. Check back in with us next week!
Acyan – MASCULTURE
Rising trap producer Acyan returned to OTHERWRLD today, unveiling his high-octane EP ‘MASCULTURE.’ Drawing inspiration from the overwhelming and mind-numbing effects of society’s constant consumption of social media content, ‘MASCULTURE’ is a poignant reflection of Acyan’s struggle to balance his personal life with his online persona. His signature, hard-hitting sound is evident in “INSIDE” as the gritty bass lead, deep subs, and punchy kicks blend perfectly with the trap-inspired leads and processed vocal chops. Arriving as the first full package featuring his new sound, ‘MASCULTURE’ signals a new chapter in Acyan’s career as he looks toward further developing his artistry with music that’s reflective of his professional and personal growth.
Playing this immersive, rave-fuelled and hedonistic showcase will be Stella Bossi, Luca Donzelli and Space 92. A sexy dress code is encouraged and all inhibitions must be left at the door as there is a strict no camera or video policy. Get your tickets for this unique island debut here.
Day Zero Tulum
Each year, Damian Lazarus and the multi-faceted team behind Day Zero Tulum set out to produce the wildest party in the world. Positioned amongst the ritualistic history of the Mayan people and a future-forward understanding of modern hedonism, the festival sits at the apex of what a rave can be. On January 12, Day Zero will return to the transcendental jungles of Tulum to defy all expectations.
DJ Minx – D Town
Crucial Detroit artist DJ Minx shares her newest single, a gritty ode to her city, “D Town,” out on her own label, Women On Wax. The single also comes alongside two remixes–one from Kevin Saunderson’s legendary Detroit trio Inner City and the other from Byron The Aquarius.
Homemade Spaceship – Ghost Ride The Spaceship
DJ, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Homemade Spaceship has spent the last decade making an indelible mark on the Denver bass music scene. The Chicago-bred producer’s astral-inspired sonics and electro-soul performance style – which incorporate both the electric guitar and flute – have led to collaborations with soulful bass queen Maddy O’Neal and saxophone-wielding artist SoDown, in addition to taking the stage festivals like Sonic Bloom and Electric Forest.
Now, the artist is revving up toward his debut album, Ghost Ride The Spaceship, a genre-blurring, full length project that displays how his artistry is used as catharsis — a way to escape reality and find purpose in this universe without outside distractions. Wonky, vibrant, and brimming with heavy bass sounds, Ghost Ride The Spaceship promises to envelop listeners on a voyage through the space-time continuum.
Kah-Lo – Runaway
Grammy-nominated Nigerian singer-songwriter Kah-Lo releases her sultry new single ‘Runaway’. Following ‘GD Woman’, ‘Karma’, and ‘fund$’, ‘Runaway’ serves as the fourth single off Kah-Lo’s forthcoming debut album pain/pleasure, due out September 8th via Epic Records.
Nifra Live Stream
Slovakian trance star DJ Nifra is once again partnering with Tiede Night’s for a unique new live stream from UNESCO World Heritage Site the Masada National Park.
The first stream shot from the Dead Sea last year was a huge success and the team behind the concept have now taken things up a level as they take over the ancient fortress in southern Israel’s Judean Desert. The set premiered on Nifra’s YouTube channel.
