27. Lit to our very tips.



BACK INTO a new track flooding the Zone,

Gathering Nightime 3 darken

lush and muscular, layers upon layers, orchestral, upwelling. Those big speakers barking, my God, emotions sparking, everything on the up and up, everything on the move, and then - BOOM - the track detonated and we were gone, gone.


Rushing for the first time - dancing, hollering, igniting - moving in whatever way took hold, in whatever manner best pleased. Nothing but us and the bassline now, on the Nirvana express, aeronauts launched a thousand feet straight up, down, sideways, catapulted away again.

So few ways to express all us starvelings felt: the blaze of fraternity, empathy, quietude of soul: the X transporting us to places we could never reach on our own.







Big Dan looming over me, yelling something in my ear.

“Iz. . . y! . . . Pet . . . osed . . .  to  . . . hanie.” 


“Pete's . . . posed bro! They . . . ting married!”

Dan spun me around; his wolfish grin filled my vision. A pause, I understood and we were in, all in to hug the happy couple. A group hug of twenty of us, jumping and shouting and hurtling still higher with the news.

Evil Petes marrying Stephanie.

A-haaaa, wicked!

On, Up, Further we went, into the quaking pitch, into the rain and riot and cannonade of the Gods, avatars of freedom, bambinos of lightning, on, and on, and on into some misty, mystic pinprick of paradise.

Something was coming; the trance had run away. I gave my camcorder to Dan in the hope of capturing it; it died in the rain. In the interregnum we trembled, arms around each other's shoulders and lit to our very tips. Our heads turned towards the flower towers where the petals peeled to reveal high-powered strobes . . .

      Ponzoo, an up and coming producer that we've been keeping an eye on, has just released a super-unique sounding record that we really can't put our finger on. Is it riddim? Is it dubstep? Is it trap? We'll leave that for you to decide. In the meantime, we'll give a brief breakdown on our thoughts

      Apple fans may be unsure about the increased price of the new iPhone X, but one thing we all can agree on is how cool the Animoji Karaoke feature is. While some people are overwhelmed with the “super retina” screen and beautiful edge-to-edge display, the internet can't seem to get enough of the animated characters

      It’s been over a year since we last heard new music from Porter Robinson, he and Madeon’s bright, pop-tinged collaborative anthem ‘Shelter’.
      But now Porter is back with a new single — and a brand new alias to go with it. Today, Robinson unveiled his new project Virtual Self with the DDR-inspired debut single ‘Eon Break’. With a happy hardcore bent and the sky-high BPM to go with it, ‘Eon Break’ a definite departure from the sound of his 2014 debut album Worlds, but still retains Porter’s trademark attention to melody.
      So what else do we know about Virtual Self? Sweet fuck all, right now. Robinson tweeted and emailed his mailing list a link to the ‘Eon Break’ video but as yet, there’s been no official statement about what we can expect from the new project.

      There’s good reason to hope ‘Eon Break’ won’t be the last Virtual Self track we hear — in an interview with inthemix last year around the release of ‘Shelter’, Porter revealed that he had new music on the way. “I can’t really confirm a new album for me necessarily,” he said. “I just know that I’m working on a lot of music and I don’t know how it’s going to be presented or what form it’s going to take, but that’s where I’m at.”
      Since he and Madeon wrapped their mammoth Shelter tour — which included three shows in Australia — Porter’s kept a fairly low profile, surfacing to play shows at Vegas superclubs and festivals like Ultra Japan.
      Listen to ‘Eon Break’ below.
