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


    OzClubbers

    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.

      Hi Kivah, thanks for taking the time to chat!  Where are you right now and what you been up to this month?
      After travelling for the last couple of months non stop, taking the plane literally ten times in one month, I finally am settled back in London and this month I am completely focused on my single release and preparing new songs.
       
      Can you tell us a bit, in your opinion, about the scene where you are located? It is conducive to the artistic/creative lifestyle?
      I think London is one of the best places in the world to be especially for the music and artistic/creative lifestyle. London is so diverse  - you can be in Shoreditch or Camden Town, which are so alternative, and then take a cab to Mayfair and in half an hour you are in a posh private members clubs with quite a mainstream  scene. I just love the diversity of London!
       
      How does it compare to Mallorca?
      Well there are definitely more opportunities in a big city rather than on a small island. Lots of chances to make great contacts, attend events nonstop, network with industry and non- industry people and most importantly the major  artists will be surely playing in London whereas there is no chance to see your favourite artists playing in Mallorca.
       

      What inspired you to get into music?
      I always loved singing. I can’t even remember when  it started. Funny enough my dad reminded me a couple of years ago that when I was like 7 years old I already put my hand in a fist pretending that it was  a mike and was singing and dancing like crazy. I didn’t remember that I just though it all started when I formed my band when I was 15 but seems like it comes from much earlier.
       
      You got in early, being the lead singer and co-founder of “The New Flesh” in your teens, can you tell us a bit about how that came about?
      My first boyfriend was a musician, he played the bass in another band. Then the band disbanded and he suggested that I was the  lead singer, so we formed The New Flesh (we were a bit gothic back then) and that’s how I became singer-songwriter.
       
      We heard you have even recorded tracks for Café Del Mar.  Is this true, and if so, can you tell us more?
      Yes I have been doing some chill out music in the past. I have co-written a song called “Nobody” with the DJ/Producer Luis Junior and recorded “Now We Are Free” the original soundtrack of the movie Gladiator in chill out version. These tracks have been featured in albums like Space Café, Cinema Lounge, Dome Ibiza as well as Luis Juniors album “Neibum” both distributed by Café del Mar.
       
       
      Do you remember what it felt to sing for the first time in front of a crowd? How did you feel, and how well did it go?
      I was excited and nervous at the same time but with the experience and professionalism of my fellow musicians I felt sheltered and everything went great and I ended up having a lot of fun!
       
      You’ve just released a massive tune with MOTi.  How did that come about?
      MOTi  heard my song and loved it! He said he wanted to do the remix! We thought this was a collaboration we couldn’t turn down and let him add his magic to the track and the rest was history as they say!
       
      I’m sure working with MOTi is probably up there, but what would be your biggest achievement in your music career so far?
      My biggest achievement  at the moment is with “All You Sexy Ladies” I think it’s the best record so far as well as setting up my own record label. I am a businesswoman and have set up various businesses in the past so when the opportunity arrived I thought let’s go for it!
       
      What do you personally consider to be the perceptive moments of your artistic career?
      When I decided to be brave and moved firstly to Madrid to continue my musical career on my own as all the other band members were too comfortable in Mallorca but I was always quite ambitious and wanted to achieve more. A whole new experience started there for me in a big city and then later on I have repeated the same change by moving to London chasing the same dream.
       
      You’ve done a lot of modelling and acting in your time, starting from a very young age.  Can you tell us any particular memorable moments in your modelling and acting career that will stick with you for the rest of your life?
      I have many memorable moments especially when shooting commercials but I think one of the proudest  is an eight page reportage in a very popular magazine in Spain called MAN not only because it was a great achievement but also because I have shot this with a dear photographer friend of mine who has passed away suddenly couple of years ago in his hotel room in Mexico. He was such a great photographer and that photo shoot session will be in my heart and memory forever.
       
      What do you listen to in your downtime?
      My taste in music is very eclectic but the last couple of years I have been listening a lot to The Weeknd, his voice just draws me in.
       
      And lastly, what words of wisdom would you pass on to those who are just starting out in the music industry?
      Always believe in yourself, don’t be put off what some people in the industry  tell you, you’re too fat, you’re too thin, you’re too young, you’re too old, your voice is not good enough and so on. When you are passionate about what you do with work, determination and focus you can achieve anything in life!

      Too Many Zooz are the subway sensation known for collaborating on Beyonce’s Lemonade as well as a searing series of live busking viral videos. Pioneering the sound of the streets, their recent single Warriors featured in the Google Pixel 2 advert, seeing the track garner huge TV plays across Europe, North & South America and Japan. 
      All of this brought the track to the attention of UK record producer KDA – whose previous single with Tinie Tempah & Katy B hit the UK Singles Chart at #1. Knocking up a bootleg, the momentum quickly grew as tastemakers including YouTube influencer channel SubSoul, club DJs Marco Carola, Busy P, Steve Lawler, Kevin Knapp and BBC Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac, Danny Howard, Pete Tong and MistaJam all lending their support.
      Now an official Transatlantic collaboration between New York’s finest animal lovers, Too Many Zooz and (until recently) London’s most mysterious record producer KDA, Warriors has been picked up for release by the UK’s biggest dance music label, Ministry of Sound. As if that wasn’t enough, the collaboration has been given the highest tastemaker award in the country, being named as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World.
      Too Many Zooz have evolved their unique sound from a continuous stream of live street performance. Busy touring Europe, Too Many Zooz are made up of dancing sax wizard Leo P, the ferocious percussionist King of Sludge and nimble-fingered trumpeter Matt Doe. After meeting by chance, busking at Union Square Subway station in NYC, commuter-shot footage of their high-octane performances shot to viral fame. 
      South London boy, KDA, is known predominantly for his number one hit Turn the Music Louder featuring Katy B and Tinie Tempah. The track since achieved gold status and sold more than 500,000 copies. Having only just released himself from anonymity, KDA is the sought-after producer behind Just Say and Hate Me. KDA’s DJ support is an endless list of equally varied tastemakers including the likes of Jackmaster, Seth Troxler, Black Madonna and Jamie Jones.
      Bringing Too Many Zooz’ raw, untamed sound of the subway and KDA’s sleek and rhythmic dance music power, the new version of Warriors demands your attention. A clash between two acts that has created an undeniable summer anthem.
