    Here’s just how massive Sensation Australia is going to be


    In just 11 days, the global festival juggernaut that is Sensation will land at Sydney’s Olympic Park.

    With headliners such as Deadmau5, Showtek, Oliver Heldens, and Fedde Le Grand, the festival is gearing up to be one of the biggest EDM events the city has seen in years.

    But the names on the bill are only a part of what Sensation has in store. They’ll be bringing all the power and might their biggest global productions: think kilometres of LED lighting, massive audio towers, C02 cannons, and pyrotechnics like you’ve never seen before.

    “The attention to detail ID&T puts into Sensation is incredible,” Sensation Australia’s Simon Lovell told inthemix. “All up including setup staff, DJs, performers, logistics, there are over 200 people working behind the scenes on Sensation Australia next week.”

    “The setup will begin this Friday with over 100 crew,” adds Technical Producer Arian Yeganeh.  “It will take us one full week with perfect weather to build.”

    As for what they’ll be building? That would be the biggest outdoor festival stage in Australia’s history. “The stage is over 88 metres wide, and includes more than 1 kilometre of LED tubes especially designed for this unique outdoor edition,” Simon says.

    The accompanying sound system will also be one of the largest an Australian festival has seen, with 10 audio towers set up on the grounds.

    Of course, being an EDM festival, there’ll also be a lot of bells and whistles: “There will be over 1000 individual pyrotechnic shots and over 23 C02 jets, plus a wide range of special effects including over 200 kilos of confetti and streamers,” says Simon.

    As for whether Deadmau5 will be bringing his Cube 2.0 for his headlining set, Sensation just told us this: “We’ll have to wait and see.”

    For a look at just what you’re in for, watch their 2016 Amsterdam aftermovie below. Sensation hits Sydney Olympic Park on November 25, get your hands on tickets here.

      Anticipation of Ultra Worldwide’s first foray into the land known universally as ‘Down Under,’ was at fever pitch and let there be no doubt, the event delivered and kept on delivering until the last record was played and the lights went out.
      The day in Melbourne began with up-and-coming Artist Moe kicking off proceedings.  The energy levels at that point were already soaring as Home-grown stars: Mashd N Kutcher and DJ Tigerlilyfollowed suit, whilst Timmy Trumpet and Will Sparks (with guest vocalist Luciana) upped the ante and set the bar high for what was to follow.
      As the infamous ‘Ultra Angels’ brought their world-famous routine to the ‘Sidney Myer Music Bowl,’ next level production lighting was activated as dusk led to dark.  Andrew Rayel who is much loved by Aussie audiences & no stranger to our shores, raised the energy levels & excitement in anticipation of KSHMR (where together with Carnage and Timmy Trumpet) expressed his delight at being on stage with both guys in Melbourne for the first time – where they performed their mega hit ‘Toca.’ Carnage by name and certainly carnage by nature, caused mayhem with his un-matchable energy and love of the microphone and this was of course the perfect lead up to Afrojack.  Afrojack and MC Ambush entertained the masses with old hits & new, leading up to the night’s finale.  It was Axwell’s closing set, (having played the same venue just a few years prior), that finally brought the curtain down with the final set, but not before blowing the minds of all in attendance.
      Event organisers said: “We are thrilled with the response to our very first ‘Ultra Australia’ / ‘Road to Ultra’ event and are speechless with the turnout, behaviour and respect of our fans who’ve travelled from overseas and across Australia to be in Melbourne.  We couldn’t have hoped for better and it is YOU, our fans, who have paved the way for greater things in 2019! See you next year in Melbourne & Sydney!!”
      Road to Ultra is a collaboration between: Ultra Worldwide, PSV Group Australia, WAO Event Management & Lucky Entertainment.

      Sharing a passion for soft porn, the owners of Saints & Sonnets decided to give a shallow stab towards releasing “half decent house music” and the results were far beyond their expectation. The label to this date counts a number of 12 releases and it features names like Roman Flugel, Detroit Swindle, Shenoda or Huxley. It seems that brushing off the dust of old vinyl and today’s chaos in electronic music offered Saints & Sonnets the authority it deserves especially with their 13th release from Artifact.
      The fact of the matter is that Bristol is foremost peaking when it’s about astonishing self-taught underground talent in matter of originality, and the artist behind Saints & Sonnets 13th release, Artifact, proves us just right. Bristol born, Artifact, first got acclaimed back in 2012 when his EP on Local Action seemed to be limitless, with its rocky house texture and dubstep assortment. Foremost, the tracks that set Artifact apart, Freezedry, was given away for free as courtesy for Local Action’s newest signing. Influenced by old deep house, ruff techno and the touch of living in a dubstep environment left a distinctive mark on the artist as bigger label such as Purp & Soul, Rebirth or MadTech took an interest into his sound.
      How Did You Change EP features two originals and a remix from the boss himself, Huxley. It’s Artifact’s first official solo EP in 18 months.
      How Did You Change see’s Artifact as an artist that grew over these past couple of years. Downward string notes are meant to maintain the venomous cycle as the lyrics bitter Gates’s message. It confuses the anticipated turnout with the groove of the track propagating with each spoken lyric. Soothing on the dance floor, the track conveys mixed moods for each individual.
      Even is floating on the same line as Artifact’s sound back in 2012 and it brings remembrance to the sound we were accustomed with. The vocal brings memories of the early soulful house, but the track develops a series of mixed signals. Pinpointing an exact mood, is more of a science as airy strings come and go and wrap onto the house beat.
      Huxley’s remix of Even takes a modern approach to house. Its roll enters countless worlds that eventually extents to a deliberately methodical disorder that aids in the track’s advantage. Breathing spaces within the track show for relentless brain-feet harmonization as the track formulates and rearranges itself for a different chapter in its story.
      When the right time comes, we’ll let you have a listen to the tracks.
