    • Cosmic Gate Announce Livestream From Mexico + World Premiere of New Single cosmic-gate-live-stream-oz-edm-feature

      The front end of 2022 sees GRAMMY-nominated duo Cosmic Gate up their livestream game once again. With EDM.com hailing them amongst their 10 Best DJ Sets of 2021 (alongside Illenium, Skrillex, Amelie Lens, Porter Robinson & others), the impression CG left on the livestream landscape couldn’t have been bigger. “MOSAIIK showcased, said the outlet, a darker, more techno-influenced sound and their Miami Open Skies DJ set in March moonlighted as their opening act”. Jan 19 is the date and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is the place for their next throw-down, where – on the impossibly picturesque Playa Del Caballo and its Casitas Maraika venue, Nic & Bossi will deliver another astonishing 2hr livestream. Casting all winter chills aside, the set promises much in terms of ’22-hot material, not least of which will be their killer new single ‘We Got The Fire’. Following the new artistic path blazed by releases like ‘Blame’ and ‘Nothing To Hide’, Cosmic Gate have gone all-guns to create the first anthem of 2022. The track features the voice of Italian-English singer Olivia Sebastianelli, who Nic & Bossi first encountered whilst remixing Andrew Rayel’s ‘Everything Everything’. Olivia’s (per The Guardian newspaper) “rich, huskily emotive voice” lends ‘Fire’ a complex balance, that’s caught between regret and hope. Building that fire under it, Nic & Bossi construct a production that balances early smoulder with later-stage flame. Turning that Cosmic Gate heat up again, ‘We Got The Fire’ is out Friday Jan 21. The single is the first music to come from ‘MOSAIIK Chapter Two’, which – after the fan-embrace first act, must surely rank as Cosmic Gate’s most anticipated LP to date. With further precursor singles arriving ahead of its release, the full album sees the light at the end of May.

    • Seven Lions & Jason Ross Release Collaborative EP ‘See You Again’ seven-lions-jason-ross

      Seven Lions and Jason Ross reunite on their second collaborative EP ‘See You Again’. The EP acts as the spiritual successor to the hugely successful ‘Ocean’ EP from 2018, which also consisted of an emotive vocal melodic dubstep lead single with a trancier B-side. Frequent collaborator and fan-favorite singer Fiora brings her enchanting voice and melodies once again to Seven Lions and Jason Ross’ masterful melodic bass production on “See You Again” while the peak time, festival-ready track “Orpheus” sees a release after years of being teased at festivals. Producer Seven Lions has never had a problem breaking rules and transcending musical boundaries to satisfy his creative vision. Catching his break after winning a Beatport remix contest in 2012 with his dubstep-focused version of Above & Beyond’s “You Got to Go”, Seven Lions, born Jeff Montalvo, garnered support from the likes of Anjunabeats, Casablanca Records, OWSLA, Viper Recordings, Republic Records, and Monstercat over the past eight years. After years of floating around from labels, Seven Lions compiled his own label in 2018 called Ophelia Records. Since its emergence, the melodic bass label has made its imprint being voted the Best Label of 2019 by r/edm, releasing multiple #1 iTunes Dance albums and hosting festival stage takeovers across the country. His productions have seen stages at world-renowned festivals such as Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival (New York and Las Vegas), Electric Forest, Electric Zoo, South by Southwest, and HARD. Jason Ross’ footprint as a diversified electronic music artist continues to grow deeper. He’s produced with Seven Lions on their anthems ‘Higher Love’ and ‘Ocean,’ collaborated with Above & Beyond on remixes, and played some of the world’s most renowned venues like Red Rocks, The Gorge and The Hollywood Palladium. His tracks have received support from prominent producers including Armin Van Buuren, Slander, Kaskade, Avicii and many more. Continuing on an active 2020 that saw Jason release an album, as well as multiple livestream projects, 2021 has been no less busy. Jason released a 4 track EP in May titled Convergence, featuring the standout singles “One More Day” with Blanke and Chandler Leighton, and “Wild Ones” with Nevve. In 2020 he released his debut artist album, 1000 Faces, that features prominent bass music collaborators such as Seven Lions and Dabin, and vocal collaborators and writers like Melanie Fontana, RUNN, and Dia Frampton. To date, the record has amassed over 16 million streams on Spotify. Jason also hosted his own weekly Twitch mix show in partnership with the biggest music channel on the platform – Insomniac.

    • Giuseppe Ottaviani Unleashes New Single ‘The Wind in Your Face’ giuseppe-ottaviani-oz-edm-2021-the-wind-in-your-face

      Italian master of trance Giuseppe Ottaviani returns with progressive new trance hit. We ask in all seriousness, is there any producer in the trance realm as all-out dependable as Giuseppe Ottaviani? Having just last month notched a new vocal high with his and Monika Santucci’s heart-stealing ‘With You’, the Italian now expands that envelope again with another stylistically-open-world single. Following ‘With You’s suit, ‘The Wind In Your Face’ marks a subtle but unmistakable modification to Giuseppe’s sound. Whilst still speaking in the most powerful of production manners, it sees him cool the 138 pace and click over into the solo & instrumental space. Backed by a raft of ear-catching FX, attention-to-production-detail and astute studio sleight of hand, he hooks ‘The Wind In Your Face’ around one elemental, yet devastating effective superstring. Hovering inside a stylistic connexion, the track plays with trance, progressive and techno themes, never though tipping its balance fully one way or the other. Elaborate in production, it has a wide-open-space feel to it, which – going into 2022 – is precisely where Giuseppe Ottaviani wants to be. Change is in ‘The Wind’ for Giuseppe; the track touches down on streaming and sales sites this week .  

    • Above & Beyond Reunite With Justine Suissa On ‘Almost Home’ above-and-beyond-flying-by-candlelight-oz-edm-feature

      UK trance group Above & Beyond have teamed up with Justine Suissa for new single “Almost Home.” Arriving as Above & Beyond’s first club track of the year, ‘Almost Home’ sees the British trance trio join forces with iconic vocalist Justine Suissa. Suissa is no stranger to Above & Beyond as she’s collaborated with the group for close to twenty years. From the joint project of Oceanlab and releasing the chart topping album The Sirens Of The Sea, to becoming a mainstay collaborator on hits such as “Alright Now,” “On A Good Day,” and “Little Something” the return of Justine Suissa has been welcomed by fans worldwide. An emotional release for both the artists and fans alike, ‘Almost Home’ is set to be one of the most special releases of this year, and it also coincides with their massive upcoming ABGT450 event in London this September. Releasing their first track together in over four years, both parties have created a sense of unity and power within this track and it has come just at the right time. Driving synths carry Justine Suissa’s unique, powerful vocals forward, creating a strong foundation to build upon. Uplifting and energetic yet filled with passion and emotion at the same time, this is the beauty of an Above & Beyond and Justine Suissa collaboration. “This is a track that we originally wrote with Justine some years ago. Like many musicians during the lockdown, we buried ourselves in the studio and had plenty of time to pick through old ideas. ‘Almost Home’, with its ’80s production influences, caught our ear. We sent it across to Justine again, and she rewrote the second verse to reflect her feelings on it today – we won’t tell you what it’s about though, we’ll leave that for you to decide. This track started in quite a different form, so we’ve also done a Club Mix to bring it a bit more up-to-date. It’s quite emotional to think that we’ll be able to play this one live for you all very soon. Take care for now!” – Above & Beyond Out now on Beatport and all popular streaming platforms, get your first listen of “Almost Home” below!

    • Abraxis Returns With Face Melting New Single ‘Black Rainbow’ abraxis-half-of-it-oz-edm-feature

      Abraxis, Seven Lions’ psytrance alter alias with the duo Dimibo, is releasing their first single in over a year and their fourth ever release with the single “Black Rainbow”. The track is a fan favorite, known for its cryptic dialogue and multiple high energy, show-stopping drops. “Black Rainbow” releases the day before the third installment of Seven Lions’ festival Chronicles at the Gorge Amphitheatre, where they’ll be playing a special costumed set with new show visuals to over 10,000 fans in attendance. Abraxis is a conceptual psytrance project formed by melodic bass powerhouse Seven Lions (Jeff Montalvo) and Washington based psytrance duo Dimibo (Filip Pankovcin & Loch Stimpson). They first worked together in 2017 on their remix of Excision’s dubstep hit The Paradox, and over the next two years they performed numerous back to back sets at festivals and clubs across the country. In mid 2019 the trio announced they would officially be combining forces with the creation of Abraxis, the project set to debut at Insomniac’s Dreamstate festival that November. Abraxis has released three singles so far; Old Gods, Night Rider, and Half of It. While their sound is firmly rooted in psytrance, the three producers incorporate a wide range of production techniques and musical genres, giving their music a unique hybrid feel. The Abraxis brand invites listeners to enter the thematically rich and ominous world of the Abraxis Institute, a mysterious academy founded by the enigmatic Dr. Abraxis. With roles as Institute ‘faculty,’ the three members are responsible for delivering lectures and subjecting pupils to the will of Dr. Abraxis.
