De wereldwijd gelauwerde DJ en producer in elektronische dansmuziek Ferry Corsten, al meer dan 21 jaar actief en gerespecteerd, opende zijn FULL ON 2013 seizoen op spectaculaire wijze met een succesvolle kick off in Jakarta (Indonesië) op 5 april. Een teken dat er bijzondere dingen staan te gebeuren met het vooruitstrevende “back-to-back” concept met artiesten uit verschillende muziekgenres. Met het heersen over één continent wordt geen genoegen genomen dus heeft Ferry Corsten, samen met zijn persoonlijk uitgekozen team van muzikale collega’s, de ambitie om de wereld in te pakken met de FULL ON 2013 World Tour.
Met grote namen uit de EDM scene zoals onder andere ATB, Bassjackers, Tritonal en Cosmic Gate zal Ferry Corsten in mei de FULL ON tour in de Verenigde Staten aanvangen. Op 11 mei opent Corsten de tour in Amerika in de EchoStage in Washington DC met Tritonal en Bassjackers, waar deze splinternieuwe show Corsten’s triomfantelijke terugkeer zal zijn in deze locatie met een vers keurkorps van top artiesten. Andere artiesten die op de diverse FULL ON shows hun kunsten gaan vertonen zijn de aanstormende talenten W&W, samen met onder andere Ronski Speed, Solarstone, Shogun, Orjan Nilssen, John O’Callaghan, Sied van Riel, Aly & Fila en Rudee.
Op 17 mei brengt Ferry Corsten FULL ON naar de Exchange nachtclub in Los Angeles en deze keer zal niemand minder dan Bassjackers & Audien het Ferry Corsten team assisteren met de slag tegen de middelmaat. De hedendaagse muziekfans zijn kritischer dan ooit en nemen geen genoegen met minder dan een adembenemende show; de lat ligt hoog. Alleen het allerbeste is nog goed genoeg in de live entertainmentindustrie en de spectaculaire FULL ON show zal zich dan ook onderscheiden van de rest om de trouwe schare van fans niet te kort te doen.
Op 19 mei zal het FULL ON circus neerstrijken in het Kool Haus in Toronto (Canada) waar de grondtroepen voor deze show bestaan uit Tritonal en Bassjackers. Elke support act op de FULL ON shows zijn nauwkeurig gekozen door Corsten en afgestemd op de stad en de locatie waar de show gegeven zal worden. Uiteraard staat Corsten zelf ook in het middelpunt op elke individuele show.
In juli zal FULL ON acte de préséance geven op één van de beste festivals wereldwijd, Tomorrowland in België, waar FULL ON op hun eigen FULL ON stage de internationale fans een onvergetelijke show zullen bezorgen. Hierna zal FULL ON in totaal tien shows programmeren op Ibiza, de zomerse speeltuin van Europese, maar ook steeds meer Amerikaanse muziekliefhebbers die op zoek zijn de naar de minder commerciële en serieuzere kant van elektronische dansmuziek.
FULL ON is zeker geen standaard dance evenement. De FULL ON show biedt een overweldigende belevenis dankzij de unieke combinatie van house, trance en electro, de spetterende visuals en de dynamiek van de altijd verassende back-to-back sets. FULL ON is in 2007 van start gegaan in Ahoy’ Rotterdam en heeft zich sindsdien ontwikkeld tot een toonaangevend concept. De show heeft inmiddels een keur aan grote steden aangedaan, waar de locaties steevast uitverkocht waren en waar artiesten als Sander van Doorn, Fedde Le Grand, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Chicane, Mat Zo, Michael Woods en vele andere te bewonderen waren. Meer FULL ON 2013 data zullen binnenkort bekend gemaakt worden.
Fuelled by the auditory dynamics of its A-list championed, fan-embraced tracks, ‘Wake Your Mind’ was sent global through its world orbiting tour. From there it moved from being ‘just’ an artist album to an unstoppable EDM force of nature. Obliterating traditional borders, it reduced sub-genre classifications to insignificance with its diversified freethinking sound.
To commemorate the impact of Cosmic Gate’s most successful album to-date, Black Hole Recordings have built ‘Wake Your Mind’ – The Deluxe Edition. A plenary iTunes release, it delivers the ultimate W.Y.M. experience. Encompassing tracks & remixes (from Ferry Corsten, W&W, Orjan Nilsen, Omnia and others) and a full span of multimedia aspects, you’re looking at the album expansion pack to end all expansion packs!
“A flawlessly selected remix roster”, “full-length videos of the singles, exhaustive tour galleries, song lyrics and numerous other elements. The benchmark for future album re-releases has been firmly set.” – Mixmag – Album of the Month, April 2013
On the conception of The Deluxe Edition, Cosmic Gate’s Nic Chagall said: “We left the studio, having finished ‘Wake Your Mind’, feeling that something very special had been produced. The response from the fans, DJs and radio stations, over the last year has reinforced that.” “So” (continues Bossi) “when the idea of the Deluxe Edition came up, we saw it as the perfect ‘last chapter’ in ‘Wake Your Mind’s story.”
In the beginning… the Deluxe Edition of ‘Wake Your Mind’ kicks off with its original 15-track pantheon. Featuring co-writes with internationally recognised producers like Arnej, Myon & Shane 54 and Andrew Bayer and vocal team-ups with singers including Emma Hewitt, Aruna, JES, Cary Brothers, Cathy Burton, collectively its music have sent temperatures soaring on floors worldwide. Single releases like ‘The Theme’, Barra’ and ‘Flying Blind’ have become the ‘Gate’s new dancefloor calling cards, whilst ‘Be Your Sound’ has established itself as their new anthem pinnacle.
Remix Your Mind… first to the fore in release’s extras is a consummate 360° remix-retake of W.Y.M.’s music. Having put together an all-star cast, some of the world’s hottest remixers have unleashed their minds on the album’s tracklist. Among them are Stoneface & Terminal, who add a shaft of light to the tense prog-plotted ‘Sometimes They Come Back For More’ and Orjan Nilsen who amplifies ‘Be Your Sound’s melodic aspects – driving home the point with lancing tech riffs. Lending some stateside EDM inflexion, Tritonal gets some grind to the album’s title track, whilst W&W add additional warp, squelch and stab to the J’Something vocalled ‘Over The Rainbow’. Nudging the tempo & tone pedal a touch, Omnia, Alexander Popov, Nitrous Oxide and others supply gravity defying rebuilds to tracks like ‘All Around You’, ‘Nothing Ever Lasts’ and ‘Calm Down’. Diverting spectacularly into mash-up territory, the Ferry Corsten Fix of System F Vs. Cosmic Gate’s ‘The Blue Theme’ blends ‘Out of the Blue’ with C.G.’s ‘The Theme’. Seguing between the two riffs, it’s a pulse racing, floor-combusting double helix that oscillates between two of EDM’s greatest moments!
“Enough bonus multimedia ‘extras’ to keep tranceateers happy for hours”… (says Mixmag)
And they’re not wrong. Click into the Deluxe Edition’s multimedia material, through its smart interactive menu system and the listener discovers a feature-rich world. Full-length official WYM videos (‘Barra’, ‘Flying Blind’, ‘Calm Down’ and ‘Sometimes They Come Back’ among them), song lyrics, extensive hi-def tour galleries (covering some of Nic & Bossi’s most memorable Wake Your Mind tour events in 2012) and other elements all further and widen the WYM experience.
The criterion for fans of the album and it’s music, it’s out now and available via the following iTunes link: goo.gl/AnVSR

The fifteenth anniversary of Ultra Music Festival is guaranteed to go down in history as one of the most awesome spectacles in dance music, not least through it becoming the most viewed festival event in North America EVER with over 10 million unique viewers worldwide and also being officially confirmed by YouTube as having the highest concurrent number of views for any non-sponsored US music stream with over 200,000. Combine these smashed records with an attendance of more than 330,000 Ultranauts; a line-up boasting over 200 of the best DJ’s and musicians that the world has to offer; the most mesmerizing and mind-blowing light shows, pyros and visuals that you’ll see anywhere on the planet – and it is without a doubt that 2013’s two-weekend event was the best edition yet!
To keep the whole breathtaking experience as fresh and as poignant as it was on 15th – 17th and 22nd – 24th March, the brilliant minds at UMF TV have created yet another stunning video – ‘FOREVER IN YOUR MIND’ – that encapsulates the magic of Ultra. All the joy and energy coming from artists and audience alike has been wrapped up by director Charly Friedrichs, aka Final Kid, in a spellbinding 4-minute visual package, which sends you straight back to the thrills of Miami’s Bayfront Park. This short film is just a taste of what’s to come, as in June this year the official Ultra Music Festival 2013 aftermovie ‘RELIVE’ will be unveiled – and if this slice of the action is anything to go by, it’s going to have eyes blazing and jaws dropping the whole world over.
In addition to the magical ‘FOREVER IN YOUR MIND’ video, fans can watch all of the live action again from some of the best sets seen and heard on both weekends. A growing selection of ULTRA LIVE SETS is up on UMF TV; with shows from the likes of Sander Van Doorn, Bingo Players, Fedde le Grand, Laidback Luke, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, R3hab, Armin Van Buuren, Nicky Romero, Hardwell and Chuckie all ready electronic music lovers to sink their teeth into again with more still to come!
As the world’s most famous outdoor electronic music festival, ULTRA has won “Best Music Event” by the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) six consecutive years, from 2005 to 2011, “Best International Dance Music Festival” by the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2008 and “Best Festival” by the Village Voice Media New Times consecutively five years running from 2005 through 2009. Originally created as a pure electronic music festival in 1999, ULTRA has grown through the years to present not only the genre’s hottest, biggest and best headline artists (The Prodigy, Swedish House Mafia, The Chemical Brothers, Tiësto, David Guetta, deadmau5, Underworld, Kraftwerk, Armin van Buuren, Moby, Fatboy Slim, Justice, Carl Cox and Avicii to name a few), but also crossover headline bands that incorporate EDM elements in their music and have a history or new beginning in the EDM community and culture (The Cure, The Killers, New Order, Duran Duran, The Black Eyed Peas, Erasure, M83, Santigold, The Ting Tings, Cut Copy, Empire of the Sun and Bloc Party).
In 2012, global pop icon Madonna appeared as a special surprise guest—the festival’s gift to their fans—to introduce the main stage final headlining artist AVICII, joining him behind the decks to premiere his UMF remix of her new single “Girl Gone Wild.” The year also was the subject of CAN U FEEL IT, a major documentary feature about the festival, which was shown in over 500 theatres nation-wide. Together with its signature, cutting-edge productions, ULTRA is unrivalled by consistently presenting the world’s greatest, most diverse EDM line-ups year after year.
In 2013, as it celebrated its 15 year anniversary, ULTRA became the first major EDM festival in the world to expand to two weekends: March 15, 16 and 17 and March 22, 23 and 24. Both weekends sold out with a combined total of over 330,000 people in attendance from 95 countries, breaking the festival’s previous record. A global brand, ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL takes place in Miami, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ibiza and Korea, expanding into Europe with ULTRA EUROPE July 2013 in Croatia.

3LAU, what a story is that. This producer and DJ has always been interested in music, as we could read from his bio, but the way he rose to the status he currently is in is quite a unique story. He started doing mashups and bootlegs mainly ‘because others just weren’t good enough’ and that made him go viral within a year. Awesome accomplishment and a sign that the EDM scene always welcomes new, talented individuals that are breathing fresh air into this scene!
For now, we just leave this awesome edit here: Dirty South vs. Zedd – Rifts Of Clarity (3LAU Edit)
