Laboratory is back in the house with a seven tracks sampler for this winter, represented by the finest producers from all around the world, from Argentina (Glasidum) to Italy (K.A.M.A.), from New-York (Jon Billick & Brian Morse) to Paris (Tom Akman, ManJas, Moon, Illan Nicciani & Ange Siddhar).
NEW YORK, NY (November 20, 2014) – VICE Sports today presents A Starbury Is Born. In this VICE Sports exclusive, host Isobel Yeung attends a performance of Stephon Marbury’s surreal and autographical musical “I Am Marbury” in Beijing, and speaks to the former NBA point guard about his new life in China.
Despite being heralded as the next great New York point guard, Stephon Marbury’s NBA career fizzled out, and he ended up taking a contract to play for the Beijing Ducks. In A Starbury Is Born, VICE Sports heads to Beijing to see how the former NBA point guard is adjusting to his new city.
ABOUT VICE SPORTS
VICE Sports is a piece of web realty dedicated to the game beyond the game, where the unbridled passion of the true fan shines through, for better or for worse. Headlined by original video content and distinct voices, VICE Sports shines a light on the endless array of characters both inside and outside of the game that tend to inspire such undeniable, and at times, unreasonable devotion. More often than not, the compelling stories and rich experiences that sit in the sports sidecar tend to eclipse the sport itself. We’re here to celebrate that.
Mysteryland is proud to announce collaborations with cutting-edge curators, artists, and performers from New York City and beyond, who will bring their diverse expertise in music, culture and art to Mysteryland’s second edition at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts over Memorial Day Weekend 2015. The first wave of curators includes Verboten, Webster Hall, Adam Beyer’s Drumcode, Jamie Jones’ Paradise, French Express, Q-Dance, BangOn! NYC, and many more, with the full music lineup to be released in the new year.
Mysteryland pays an homage to the rich New York music scene, with distinct areas hosted by its forward-thinking nightclubs, party series and record labels. Verboten is a Brooklyn-based nightclub and leader in the New York underground dance music scene, also bringing its popular weekly Zeitgeist series showcasing indie dance and nu-disco music to the festival. Declared by Prince as “the best stage in NYC,” Webster Hall has been, for over 128 years, a focal point of culture, celebration and freedom and will be inviting the most current names in dance music to Mysteryland.
A stage will also be hosted by Swedish techno titan, Adam Beyer, and his label, Drumcode, which cuts through the noise of the electronic music scene with each release — reaffirming the label’s mission to deliver straightforward unpretentious dance music. One of techno’s biggest stars, Jamie Jones will bring his globally recognized Paradise party, featuring his signature groove as well as a spectacular roster of guests. Meanwhile, the celebrated French Express record label has been pumping out rhythmic house tunes since 2010.
Returning is Q-dance, creating exceptional experiences for a dedicated community devoted to their passion of hard electronic dance music, and making the first stop of their 2015 North America tour. The overwhelmingly popular bass stage The Boat also returns to Mysteryland 2015 with a brand new design, always focusing on all types of bass music with a very special closing slot. And of course, Mysteryland unveils a brand new mainstage, featuring a lineup of the world’s top headlining artists. The full line-up will be released in the new year.
Over at Holy Ground camping, Mysteryland introduces a new outdoor camping stage dubbed “Pineapple Paradise,” embracing the “anything goes” ethos — you never know what to expect! Also new is The Breakfast Club: daily morning pre-parties in the Camping Circus held exclusively for Holy Ground campers, hosted by ‘Saved By The 90’s, a retro concept from the Bayside Tigers who will bring DJs, live music, and more to the grounds. Returning is the BangOn! NYC bus and of course, the Camping Circus.
Mysteryland continues its reputation as one of the world’s most groundbreaking festivals, aiming to create a community that allows fans to come together to discover new boundaries and means of self-expression through diverse settings celebrating culture and art. New additions for 2015 include ‘Owari No Nai’, a mysterious concept by the Amsterdam creative collective which brought the popular Sin Salida experience last year, featuring a Japanese land filled with Geisha girls, sake and more. Verboten also brings its Culture series, which includes Deep House Yoga classes, trivia nights, burlesque shows, and art exhibitions from popular and upcoming artists.
Mysteryland’s 2015 arts program will be curated by Kevin Balktick, who will showcase the brightest imaginations in New York and beyond. Kevin Balktick is a Brooklyn-based creative director and event producer who has been organizing art and culture experiments for nearly ten years. Mysteryland is excited to engage with New York’s artistic communities and give them a place to play and share their work.

Following Ultra Europe’s second annual record-breaking outing in July 2014, which saw over 150,000 revelers from 125 countries descend upon Dalmatia’s picturesque coastline for three consecutive days of world-class entertainment, Croatia’s largest electronic music event to date now returns with one of the most incredible festival Aftermovies ever made—‘TO THE SUN’ (RELIVE ULTRA EUROPE 2014).
Having carved out his own unique style of festival Aftermovies in 2014, FINAL KID kingpin Charly Friedrichs has arguably produced his most magical offering yet with this latest short film. Featuring exquisite HD footage from the Poljud Stadium in Split, the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on Hvar Island (at the now-legendary Ultra Beach pool party) and stunning shots of the beaches, scenery and architecture for which this stretch of coastline is so loved, Friedrichs captures the very essence of the Croatian summer combined with the inimitable Ultra experience, to deliver a truly jaw-dropping review of Ultra Europe 2014.
With first hand insights and praise from Fedde Le Grand, Martin Garrix, Carl Cox, David Guetta and Sebastian Ingrosso, the ten-minute extravaganza is topped off with both an upbeat and a euphoric summer soundtrack, packed to the brim with sexy saxophones and uplifting synths, courtesy of Bakermat & Goldfish (Games Continued feat. Marie Passard) and Deniz Koyu (To The Sun).
With the second chapter of Ultra Europe now wrapped up, all roads lead to the third annual edition, confirmed for July 10, 11, 12, 2015. For tickets and further information on Ultra Europe go to www.ultraeurope.com
Earlier this month ‘Freaks Have More Fun’ smashed its way into the Top 5 of the influential Beatport Top 100 download chart, delighting fans everywhere with its bass-bin destroying, electro house sound.
Now the latest single to come from Dada Life is finally available worldwide on iTunes – but hold on to your pants as there’s much more in store from these Swedish reprobates!
In keeping with their irreverent style, the duo is not only giving away the vocal stem from the track on SoundCloud – completely for free – but for the very first time in their illustrious history, Olle Corneer and Stefan Engblom have allowed their set from ‘Dada Life: The Voyage’ to be recorded in full and available to all on YouTube.
The epic event, which featured two sets from the Swedes themselves, support from Madeon, Morgan Page, Oliver Heldens, Andybody, plus a jaw-dropping entrance in front of a crowd of thousands via hot air balloon, was captured in all its glory earlier this year and will go live at 12pm PST on Monday November 24th on the official Dada Life YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/dadalife).
Support for ‘Freaks Have More Fun’, which is a definite return to their earlier, harder roots, has been monumental, with artists including Tiësto, Sander Van Doorn, Bingo Players, Martin Garrix, NERVO, Laidback Luke, Funkagenda, Dyro, Thomas Gold, Deniz Koyu, Justin Prime, Cash Cash, Joachim Garraud, Jesse Voorn, BassJackers, EDX, Swanky Tunes and more all throwing their considerable weight behind it.
So download your original copy from iTunes, get a mammoth dose of inspiration from the ‘Dada Life: The Voyage’ aftermovie, then go grab your free vocal stem and show Dada Life and the rest of the world what your production skills are made of. Make it harder, make it faster, slow it down or turn it on its head and make it Trap, Dubstep, Progressive, Drum & Bass or even Goa Trance. What you choose to do with it is totally up to you but remember one thing; there are no rules – only the Rules Of Dada.
With a sound that embodies summertime, EDX’s aptly named Ibiza Sunrise remix of Sandy Rivera’s ‘BANG!’ is sure to brighten up the winter months. Complimenting his previous releases of ‘Make Me Feel Good’ and a remix of Cash Cash’ ‘Lightning’, this elevating re work of ‘BANG!’ is out now through Ultra Records.
Sandy Rivera’s flamboyant personality shines through for ‘BANG!’, which features the beautiful vocal skills of Rivera’s longtime collaborator April. Renowned for his seminal track ‘Finally’, the legendary Sandy Rivera delivers a slice of classic house for the original, with EDX lending his nu-disco hand for a typically soulful rework.
After his summer anthem ‘Cool You Off’ featured within the top 10 Beatport chart and Top 20 Deep House chart for an impressive 4 months, a hugely successful Ibiza season has seen EDX grow from strength to strength. Aside from headlining the world’s finest clubs and festivals to crowds in excess of 60,000, EDX has also remixed the likes of Deadmau5, Mary J Blige, Bob Sinclar, Armand van Helden, Steve Angello, Roger Sanchez, Kool & The Gang and Lauryn Hill to name a few.
Now embarking on a massive tour of North America, there’s plenty of new music on the horizon for this Swiss producer. As he continues to reach and impress the most demanding audiences around the world, expect this remix of ‘BANG!’ to illuminate many a dance floor in the coming months.
The L.A. based duo Sego sets the rhythm with their first EP ‘Wicket Youth’ released through Kitsuné on October 27th.
Native of Utah and now Los Angeles residents, Sego’s band members, Spencer and Thomas’ live journey has taken them from rural simplicity to urban complexity. Small-town boys living in the big city, they are equally drawn to both cutting edge and the timeless, refusing to surrender flesh-and-blood humanity in and increasingly digitized and technologically driven world.
For their first release, out on Kitsuné Oct 27th, the duo reveals 5 original tracks that will give you a fantastic electric feeling. Intoxicating melodies, spiky guitar riffs and pulsating rhythms build an addictive tension, resulting from the band’s search for synthesis and balance among competing and contradictory inspirations and urges. With memorable gigs, Sego is like the perfect L.A. soundtrack right now.
Fall under the spell straight away with the opening track “20 Years Tall” and its DFA sound, which you will also hear on the upcoming Kitsuné Maison 16 compilation.
