The Eatons Hill Hotel New Year’s Day 2017 Foam Party will be bigger and better than ever with a national and international line up including in alphabetical order AC Slater, AJC, Arcane Echo, Benibee, Brooklyn, Dimes, Enschway, Lady Lilith, LDRU, Tigerlily, Timmy Trumpet, Tyron Hapi and Will Sparks.

There is nowhere to hide on the first day of the year when the New Year’s Day Foam Party reaches epic proportions offering one monster stage complete with foam cannons and pyrotechnics, a Bass in the Ballroom second stage and collectively the biggest line up to grace the festival’s stage, ever.

One featuring artist, WILL SPARKS is excited to be a part of the first release artist announcement and says it is an event not to be missed. “This New Year’s Day, Eatons Hill Hotel is where I’ll be! It’ll be rude not to” said Sparks.

The King of Heavy Bass House in America, AC SLATER has begun a lengthy career for himself with his “Night Bass” sound by fusing elements of house music with the dirty basslines of UK garage and sprinkles of old-school rave synths and breaks. AC has toured the globe several times and his tunes have been played at every major festival and club in the world by DJs including Skrillex, Diplo and so many more.

Trailblazing since the dawn of his career, there are not many artists who can claim the hype and early success that AJC is gaining at a rapid rate. From humble beginnings taking out first place in the prized wildcard position of Australia’s Your Shot competition in 2014 to also taking out first place in the World Electronic Music Competition (WEMC) 2015, there seems to be nothing that can slow this wunderkind down. Gracing stages anywhere from Paradise Club in Mykonos, Sky Garden in Bali, Pacha Nightclub in Sydney to Stereosonic Festival in Brisbane, his memorable and energetic sets split him apart from the herd.

When ARCANE ECHO stepped onto the scene, he brought with him a superb ability to deliver blistering bass music. Taking to electronic music with a vengeance, his definition devours the sound spectrum, with an infamous disregard for musical trends. With a solid laser beam vision for cracking the mediocre, Arcane Echo brings him with him unique classical and multi-instrumental training and the resurgence of a thick arsenal of ground-breaking music.

UK born and Australian bred BENIBEE arrives to each set armed with an impressive arsenal of talents as a DJ, artist, performer, remixer and producer. His solid background in music forms imposing foundations of a multifaceted performer. Behind the decks, the Benibee signature sound is beautifully arranged with shades of big room, progressive and electro house music.

With her distinctive girly street swag style, BROOKLYN has claimed every major dance floor across the country from Platinum Nightclub on the Gold Coast down to Marquee and Pacha in Sydney, Billboards in Melbourne and everywhere in between. Her stellar performance has also taken her across the Pacific Ocean to the biggest venues on the Asian continent in Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam to date.

An all-out, no bars hold DJ and Production duo, DIMES create powerful and diverse music within the bass music scene. With punching basslines and eclectic rhythms, the Brisbane based duo are one to be heard and seen. Drawing inspiration from some of the biggest names in the industry, like What So Not, RL Grime, Bauuer and more, these two have a bright future ahead of them.

ENSCHWAY has been named Australia’s answer to RL Grime with his high-energy tracks that pack a big dose of bass, a punch of synth and a hit of melody. With backing by Triple J, 2017 is going to be a monster year for ENSCHWAY.

LADY LILITH is a force to be reckoned with already making waves in the Brisbane Bass scene, this girl is one to watch and will be dropping some of the freshest tunes 2017 has heard on the Bass in the Ballroom stage.

LDRU, electronic music legend best knowing for his monster hits Keeping Score and Next To You. Having played at Splendour In The Grass this year, LDRU are at home on International stages all around the World.

TIGERLILY has fast become a hero in her home town of Sydney and one of the hottest commodities in the Australian dance music scene, recently voted the #12 DJ in the country in Australia’s renowned ITM top 50 DJ Poll for 2013. The recognition of Tigerliy’s supreme talent from industry leaders has led to residencies at some of the most renowned events and venues in the country including Pacha, The World Bar & Soho in Sydney and Red Square in Adelaide as well as gracing the stage at Australia’s major festivals.

Multi-Platinum selling artist and Australia’s #1 DJ, TIMMY TRUMPET is taking the world by storm. Timmy Trumpet, Australian house DJ and producer has played on some of the biggest stages in the World in Ibiza and America and has supported and played alongside acts like Armin Van Buuren, Carl Coz, Fedde Le Grand, Dizzee Rascal, Fatboy Slim and the Stafford Brothers. Timmy Trumpet has successfully transitioned from the international stage as an acclaimed jazz musician to the realm of global dance music where he plays live trumpet solos over electronic dance music tracks during DJs shows.

TYRON HAPI is making his mark as one of the best up-and-coming electronic dance producers Australia has to offer. Tyron’s growing discography of epic originals, remixes and collaborations have been released on some of Australia’s best known labels including Club Cartel Records, Define Music, and Look Alive Recordings.

At 22 years young, WILL SPARKS has cemented his position at the forefront of the globally loved Melbourne sound. Countless original productions have spent weeks inside the Beatport top 10 in addition to signature remixes of global hits such as Major Lazer’s ‘Be Together’, Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ and The Chainsmokers’ ‘Selfie’. In Australia he was voted ‘Breakthrough Artist Of The Year’ only to be named the #1 DJ in Australia just 12 months later – fast forward a few years and Sparks has been listed as #78 in the DJ MAG ‘Global Top 100 DJs’. Now expanding his horizons, Will Sparks is spreading like wildfire with recent festival appearances on some of the biggest stages in the world including Tomorrowland, Stereosonic, TomorrowWorld and EDC as well as touring from continent to continent 11 months of the year and hitting the 750k Facebook fans milestone.

    • Teddy Cream Team Up With Atlanta’s Benji Reyes & Truent For ‘Dancer’ teddy-cream-dancer-oz-edm-2021

      Australian duo Teddy Cream are back in full force with a hip hop flavoured dance track that screams party. ‘Dancer’ is a collab with Atlanta’s Benji Reyes; the renowned producer who has made a name for himself flipping tunes and going viral with millions of hits across YouTube and TikTok. Lending his vocals to ‘Dancer’ is artist, rapper, and singer-songwriter Truent, whose style is inspired by chart-topping rappers such as Drake, Lil Wayne, Eminem and many more. “Dancer is one of our favourite records and collaborations with artists living over 15,000 kms away,” explain Teddy Cream. “We all have a little dancer in us and we hope this song we loved making can help people get up and get dancing, especially as it comes into spring/summer in Australia.” “I always wanted to make a dance song with some hip hop elements sprinkled in,” says Benji Reyes. “My favourite part is definitely the drop. When the hook comes in and you hear the catchy line, added with the groovy bass line, it’s hard not to want to bob your head or get up and dance.” Vocalist Truent adds, “Me and Benji have worked on previous records together and I loved how those came out, so I knew it would be easy to make another hit. Teddy Cream added their sauce and gave us that extra push to turn our demo into a hit record!” Teddy Cream is Brandon Mangion and Vincent Calderone, two lifelong friends who began producing together at 13, touring at 18, and dominating dance music not long after. In 2017, their reworks of Sonia Dada’s ‘Lover’ and Daryl Braithwaite’s hit ‘Horses’ climbed the ARIA Club Charts and Spotify Viral Chart and amassed over 4.5 million combined streams. Their 2019 release ‘Summer Jam’ has over 5 million streams and charted across Europe, with follow up singles ‘Home’ and ‘Better Now’ proving them a force to be reckoned with in the dance music landscape. Known for their high energy DJ sets, their live videos have already amassed over 6 million likes on TikTok and tens of millions more views on Facebook. Benji Reyes is a music producer/DJ from Atlanta, Georgia. He started his music career a few years ago by doing unofficial remixes of popular songs namely Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ and Post Malone’s ‘Congratulations’ which went viral on Vine and TikTok alike amassing millions of streams. Following on from his successful remixes he began releasing original music independently in 2018 and his first song, ‘Double Tap’ gained millions of views on YouTube. Truent is a recording artist, rapper, and singer-songwriter from Cartersville, Georgia. He started writing raps at the age of 15 and recording original songs at 18. Truent is known for his versatility, melodic style, catchy hooks, and intricate flows which culminate to the qualities of a true hit maker. A dance pop tune sprinkled with dark hip-hop elements like ‘Dancer’ is bound to make crowds go wild, and with Teddy Cream returning to the touring circuit in early 2022, dancefloors won’t know what hit them.

    • Illenium & Thirty Seconds To Mars Drop “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” Collaboration illenium-wouldnt-change-a-thing-thirty-seconds-to-mars-fearture-oz-edm

      Multiplatinum cross-genre phenomenon, artist, producer, and DJ ILLENIUM unveils his latest single entitled “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” featuring Thirty Seconds To Mars.

It will be the inaugural release under his newly minted deal with Warner Records. The single fuses ILLENIUM’s immersive and cinematic production with a heavenly and hypnotic vocal melody from Thirty Seconds To Mars frontman Jared Leto. Backed by Shannon Leto’s powerful drums, icy synths pulsate in the background before a shuddering dancefloor-ready groove takes hold. Meanwhile, Jared Leto projects the hook loud and clear, “No matter what happens, she’s a fatal attraction to me. I wouldn’t change a thing.” In the accompanying Visualizer, images of flames, rain, and sparks underline the track’s emotional intensity, bringing the words to life. For the Deluxe Edition, ILLENIUM notably reupped, reloaded, and recharged this opus with five new songs. Among the new material, Virtual Riot expands “Blame Myself” featuring Tori Kelly with a new Remix, heightening the tension and release with an unpredictable glitchy breakdown. From the frenetic bounce of “Hurt Like This” to the guitar-laden crunch of “Superhero,” ILLENIUM presents the most complete and comprehensive vision of Fallen Embers now. Tallying over 400 million streams, the original FALLEN EMBERS boasted a series of anthems, including “Nightlight” (150M global streams), “Hearts on Fire” with Dabin feat. Lights (60M global streams), “First Time” feat. iann dior (50M global streams), “Sideways” with Valerie Broussard and Nurko (25M global streams), and “Heavenly Side” with Matt Maeson (5M global streams). Impressively, his career total streams have now eclipsed 5 billion and counting. Earlier this year, ILLENIUM performed a four-set show at The Las Vegas Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium, making him the first artist to ever perform at the venue. The first three sets at the show commemorated his previous 3 albums – Ashes, Awake, and Ascend. The night ended with a final set, bringing closure to the story of the previously mentioned albums and starting a new one with Fallen Embers. Throughout the summer, he also shined at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Breakaway Music Festival, Life Is Beautiful, and more. Now, he illuminates electronic music brighter than ever with Fallen Embers Deluxe Edition and much more to come.
