Anjuna HQ has announced a “Bushfire Relief Rave” in aid of the Australian Red Cross.
The crew behind trance and progressive institutions Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep will take over Tola Peckham on Friday 24th January, with the event falling on the same weekend as Australia Day (Sunday 26th January).
The labels have a strong contingency of staff from the world's biggest island, which has been fighting raging blazes across the country since mid-December.
Eric Prydz announced via Twitter that three new Pryda EPs will be landing soon.
The EPs come as Prydz celebrates 15 years of his Pryda Recordings label, with ‘Pryda 15 Volume I’ landing tomorrow, 21 June. ‘Volume II’ and ‘Volume III’ will land in July and August.
Eric recently dropped his epic remix of Camelphat and Cristoph’s 2018 track, ‘Breathe (feat. Jem Cooke)’, which you can listen to here.
“I don’t judge music by genre. I listen to techno, I listen to classical, I listen to everything. And I try to only listen to good music and push good music – doesn’t matter about the genre. There’s good and there’s bad. That’s it.” Gai Barone folds his hands and laughs softly at his decisive statement.
Polish producer Carlo Calabro makes his debut on Marco V’s In Charge Recordings with the release of ‘Cereal Killer.’
With a souped up backbone, the tune is without a doubt, a mega-club-friendly banger. However, Calabro keenly intertwines trance-esque synth and acid arpeggio to create a progressive combo platter at just 124bpm for modern day dance music fans.
The feel good, summer vibes of Hiisak’s ‘La Fanfarra’ has recieved the Tom Swoon treatment, and is out now on Maxximize Records.
With early support from dance music’s biggest acts, including Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, Avicii, David Guetta and Afrojack, you can be sure this one will be a summer bomb.

We know what you’re going to say: ‘Disclosure aren’t real DJs’. While they are predominantly a live outfit, they do DJ a lot, especially at their Wild Life shows, and considering DJing is generally pressing a succession of buttons these days, no one can accuse Disclosure of not pressing buttons — given the size and complexity of their live shows.
2015 has been a busy year for the Lawrence brothers; they scored a No.1 album with ‘Caracal’, a collaborative album that saw old faces like Sam Smith rub shoulders with new artists like Lion Babe.
As well as a new album, they’ve somehow found the time to put on their own festival, Wild Life, in Shoreham (near Brighton), and more recently Las Vegas, and they’ve also been quietly creating their own underground hit factory with their Method White imprint that has seen a spate of club smashes from Jonas Rathsman, with ‘Wolfbane’, MJ Cole with ‘Bouldaz’, and more recently Eats Everything’s pulverising rerub of Tiga vs Audion’s ‘Dancing’.
Who knows what else the brothers have in store for the rest of the year. Don’t bet against a raft of killer remixes of Caracal’s juiciest cuts, a new live show, which is even more impressive that their last from what we’ve seen, and a few surprises too.
Another new entry into the Top 100 this year, Russian trio Swanky Tunes have been producing together for a decade, collaborating for years with heavyweights like Afrojack and Kaskade. However, they’ve achieved plenty in the past 12 months to warrant the extra attention, and they don’t need much prompting to start rattling off their achievements.
“The past 12 months have been the most busy and successful year of our artist life and music career,” they say.
“Firstly, we hit the charts in Russia with our single ‘Fox Me’, which also became a real crossover international radio and club hit in the UK and the rest of Europe. And our single ‘Wherever U Go’ got amazing support from US dance stations and generated more than 1.5million streams on Spotify in the first couple of months after it was released on Dim Mak.”
The trio also relaunched their label imprint SHOWLAND and teamed up with Armada Music on distribution, and well as renewing their publishing deal with MusicAllStars and Spinnin’.
“We’ve actively toured all year round with a three-continent tour of the USA, Europe and Asia, leaving only Australia and South America uncovered. On top of it all we sold 4000 tickets for our show in our hometown of Smolensk, that’s an all-time record for a solo event by a DJ act hailing from the Russian Federation.”
