Iceland’s Secret Solstice Reveals Phase One Of 2016 Lineup

From June 17 – 19, 2016, the inimitable Secret Solstice Festival makes a return to Iceland’s metropolitan capital, Reykjavík, for its third annual edition. For three days, and 72 hours of consecutive daylight, some of music’s finest talents will take over the world’s most northerly capital city, for what critics have dubbed “the most unique festival on Earth”.

Interview: Waze & Odyssey

Having the ability to channel the past into the present day while remaining contemporary and relevant is no mean feat. To then take one of RnB’s most seminal songs and turn it into a modern-day classic is quite possibly even more of an outstanding achievement. Waze & Odyssey have not only managed to tick both of those accomplishments off their bucket list, but they have also notched up a seriously impressive list of accolades in the short time they’ve been together. All the while they continue to press on with their unerring campaign to keep making house music of the ... Read more

Perhaps the opening days of the legendary Manchester club The Haçienda; or the moment ... Read more

Review: Eastern Electrics Festival

Over the last couple of years Eastern Electrics has evolved from its warehouse-based roots, into a fully-fledged large-scale festival event. Last year they were maybe a little too ambitious, throwing a three-day event with camping options at Knebworth Park in Hertfordshire with a ridiculously big line-up. It ended up backfiring in a major way with the company behind Eastern Electrics going into liquidation after the event. This year they came back with a one-dayer, learning from last year’s mishap and, understandably, playing it a little safer. Even so, the line-up was still a mouthwatering prospect with Derrick Carter, Kerri Chandler, ... Read more
