    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.

      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.

      Last week, Joel ‘Deadmau5’ Zimmerman stepped up for his final BBC Radio 1 residency slot, capping off a big year of surprise guests and techno flirtations.
      Mau5 didn’t go out without a bang: his final show was crammed full of tracks — including a new one from mau5trap signee Rinzen — but he actually saved his best gift for after he called time.
      Read More Hear the Australian track Deadmau5 just gave a special shout out to   The producer just shared a playlist containing every single track he played over the course of his 12-month residency — that’s a staggering 206 songs, which equals a playing time of well over 22 hours. Among the goodies are tracks from Pryda, Maceo Plex, Lane 8, Robert Oaks, Tycho…and so, so, many more.
      Better yet, his label mau5trap has confirmed on Twitter that we’ll be getting a brand new Deadmau5 album next year, and they’ll also be launching a “podcast mix show type thing”. Basically, it’s gonna be yet another big year for the mau5.
      Listen to his final BBC Radio 1 Residency below, and check out his massive playlist below that.

      Sydney favourite What So Not and Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns have linked up for a fiery new collaboration, ‘Be Ok Again’.
      It’s the second single from the Chris ‘Emoh’ Emerson since he dropped ‘Better’ back in September, and also the first track that Emerson has ever sung on. The collab apparently came about completely by chance, with Johns walking past a studio in which Emerson and Perth mates Slumberjack were jamming in.
      “Dan seemed intrigued and started joking he had to leave before he decided to cancel his plans and track vocals with us for the next 10hrs,” Emerson wrote on Facebook yesterday. “A few days later, he reached out via a mutual friend and invited me up the coast to stay and work with him out of his home studio.”
      Read More Watch What So Not drop a killer new track live on stage   “We clicked instantly on concepts, character development, sonics and writing styles, then locked onto one song in particular. ‘Be Ok Again’ was a really personal track for me. I was kind of embarrassed to show someone of his calibre as I had written and sung my own topline to feel out the idea.
      “To my surprise, he loved it and not only was he happy to re-sing my parts, he encouraged me to keep my voice on the record. I ended up doing a bunch of writing trips to Daniel’s studio and safe to say he’s become quite a good friend and mentor.”
      Listen to the track below.
