When its come to creatively streaming their way through lockdown, Cosmic Gate have known few bounds. From New York City’s rooftops to initiating Miami’s balcony raves, where there’s been a Cosmic will, there’s been a Cosmic way.

In October though, Nic & Bossi will go beyond the simply groundbreaking to take premium-livestreaming to its zenith. Cosmic Gate will perform two concerts from Miami’s The Temple House dream-factory – a place where the only real limitation is the artist’s imagination. Globally recognised and award winning for its 360-degree projection mapping, the venue will host the concerts in their digital environment, delivering shows the exact likes of which have never been seen before.

On Saturday October 3rd, Cosmic Gate will perform For Your Mind – a two-hour concert, backed – or more accurately mapped – by retina wowing, purpose-created visuals. Featuring a wealth of new and exclusive CG-composed music, each track will be accompanied by its own thematic take-you-there graphics. Music featured will include new Cosmic Gate & Andrew Bayer collab ‘The Launch’, as well as the CG remixes of Andrew Rayel’s new single ‘Everything Everything’ and their exceptional take on Joe Smooth’s endlessly hope-filled ‘Promised Land’. Also playing their part will be recent Cosmic Gate releases ‘Universal Love’ & ‘Your Mind’, and the desk-hot latest & greatest from trance music’s highest-achievers. Two weeks later on Saturday October 17th Nic & Bossi will be back with their second concert The Classics (more details of which will follow). You can check out this amazing teaser video and catch a glimpse of what’s in store here!

Living in different cities and unable to meet during lockdown has been a surreal experience for two artists accustomed to spending 50 weeks a year together. The concerts will be the first time Nic & Bossi have spun together in six months, doubtless adding an extra expectation to the performance.

Nic says: “naturally we hold out hope that the current situation doesn’t rule out every event for the rest of 2020. Like many though, we don’t like the way it’s looking”. Bossi continues: “we live to play for our fans and if we have to be creative to do that, that’s what we’re gonna do. So we’re doing two unique events that’ll allow us all to club ‘apart-but-together’ in the absolute mask-free safety, and with the added thrill that we’re going to be able to take you hundreds of ‘places’ we otherwise couldn’t!” Talking about the venue, Nic continues: “The Temple House is a place where – digitally – our wildest ‘wanna-play-there’ dreams come true. So for two Saturdays in early autumn, push back your couch, zoom up the brightness (& volume!) and join us for some shows that’ll bring us together for an experience we’ll never forget!”

    • Cosmic Gate Announce Release for ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’ cosmic-gate-mosaiik-chapter-two

      Sometimes you can be having too much fun! ‘Chapter One’ of Cosmic Gate’s ‘MOSAIIK’ album series touched off a post-lockdown tour, bigger and more extensive than anyone (not least Nic & Bossi!) could’ve imagined. A subsequent pinch on studio time, and … well … you can guess the rest! Promise is a promise is a promise though and the GRAMMY-nominated act are delighted to start the new year with the announcement of the now-imminent arrival of ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’. March 3 isn’t that far away, but it’ll seem much closer still when you hear what Nic & Bossi have in store for the interim! First out the ‘Cosmic Gate’s gate is ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’s teaser trailer, which is online now. Through it, Cosmic Gate revealed that ‘MOSAIIK’ will spread its format wings to include, not just digital and streaming versions, but also a double CD and a limited-edition double vinyl (naturally including both Chapters). You can pre-save/order here now. Next, you’ll need to put a big save-the-date mark in the calendar for Feb 15, as Nic & Bossi are set to perform another of their acclaimed Livestreams. This time their two-hour set will be coming from Ibiza, where – backdropped by the magnetising sight (and just plain magnetic!) Es Vedra isle, the boys will be premiering much of the previously unheard music from ‘Chapter Two’. Hot on the heels of the Livestream will come the release of not one, but two new singles, before ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’ makes its full appearance on March 3. Pre-order/save the highly anticipated MOSAIIK Chapter Two album here.

    • Above & Beyond Announce ‘Group Therapy Weekender’ Australia above-and-beyond-group-therapy-weekender-australia-2022-feature-oz-edm

      Group Therapy Weekender Festival  Set To Make Its Australian Debut This December. Australian touring giants Symbiotic and Hardware are joininng  forces for the debut  Australian edition of Above & Beyond’s iconic ‘Group Therapy Weekender’ festival. Featuring a stellar, curated line-up of artists from their labels: Anjunabeats, Anjunadeep & Reflections.  The camping festival, Group Therapy Weekender Australia will be held at Yarra Valley Estate for the band’s first ever multi-day festival down under. Taking place between Friday 16 December and Sunday 18 December in Victoria’s breathtaking Yarra Valley, ‘Group Therapy Weekender Australia’ is an intimate camping getaway for Australia’s ‘Anjunafamily.’ There will also be a program of wellness activities and workshops to enhance the experience, surrounded by the picturesque landscape that surrounds the region.  There will also be an offering of the very best food and drink, from Yarra Valley and beyond. This is the first time the festival has been based in Australia and follows on from the success of ‘Group Therapy Weekender’ at The Gorge, Washington State, which welcomed 23,000 campers last July and ‘Group Therapy Weekender’ London at Dockyards. One of the world’s best-loved electronic groups, ‘Above & Beyond’ have headlined arenas around Australia over the last decade, bringing their anthemic dance songs to tens of thousands of fans. Update: Tuesday November 7, 2022 Anjuna, along with local partners Symbiotic and Hardware have made the difficult decision to relocate the inaugural ‘Group Therapy Weekender Australia’ from the Yarra Valley to central Melbourne.  Same amazing show, minus the camping. “With no reprieve from the rain in sight, it has been decided it’s too risky to proceed with a camping event this year.  The team was faced with two choices: proceed and cross our fingers that the rain will ease, and the land will dry out, or relocate to the city, where we can provide a comfortable experience rain or shine.  The ultimate goal is to deliver the greatest Anjuna event ever to visit Australia, and this can’t confidently be done in unfavourable weather conditions.  The comfort and safety of patrons is always the priority and sliding around a sodden farm for two days isn’t the experience anyone wants to have, particularly for an event’s debut year.  Although the weather has actually cleared up lately, and many were really looking forward to camping, if we’re to heed the word of Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, the current La Niña event may very well continue on through the summer months.” say organisers. ‘Group Therapy Weekender Australia’ will take place under a big top tent at Melbourne Showgrounds in a beautiful, grassy arena that’s just ten minutes from central Melbourne.  Two days, one stage, same line-up (bar a few small tweaks, including the addition of a Deep Set from Anjuna on Sunday!).

    • Giuseppe Ottaviani & Christian Burns Join Forces On ‘Closer’ giuseppe-ottaviani-christian-burns-closer-oz-edm-feature

      After August’s ‘Melody’ with Sarah de Warren, Giuseppe Ottaviani delivers ‘Horizon’s [Part 2]’ another single-worded spellbinder with ‘Closer’. One of the hallmarks of the Italian’s current album project has been pinpointing and spotlighting vocal talent from outside the trance & progressive lanes. ‘Closer’ however is its notable exception. It reteams Giuseppe with a singer-songwriter whose talents have made him one of the A-list’s most sought after. As such, it’s not the first time Giuseppe and Christian Burns’ paths have crossed (‘Brightheart’ from the ‘Alma’ album laying claim to that). In contrast to ‘Brightheart’, but in keeping with the textural sonics of ‘Horizons’ deeper dive, ‘Closer’ brings a collaboration more meditatively and transcendentally tipped in nature. Production-wise, Giuseppe prioritises atmosphere and vision over amp and elevation. His synths maintain a Moog-ish air throughout and Giuseppe weaves any number of other studio intricacies in, supplying it the richest of soundscapes. Working on the principle of less being more, Christian bakes ether and emotion into every syllable of his song. Wistful, while never despondent, yet not traditionally uplifting either, his words rest unitedly on the cusp of hopeful. Tracked every step by Giuseppe’s empathetic production, honest-to-goodness musical alchemy takes place. ‘Horizons [Part 2]’ moves another step closer, as Giuseppe Ottaviani & Christian Burns’ stunning ‘Closer’ collaboration touches down on all good streaming and sales platforms today.
