Premiere: Lossy - To The Woods (Original Mix)

With support coming from Jacques Renault, Horse Meat Disco, James Zabiela, Keinemusik, Soul Clap, Tronik Youth, Nachtbraker, Hrdvsion and more comes “Gated Soul”, the fourth release from London’s Lossy on his Boot Cycle Audio imprint. After releasing with Tru Thoughts, Tessier-Ashpool Recordings & Two Rivers Records, Lossy continues to switch things up with four tracks of a more soulful brand of electro with wonky rhodes, crunched-up breaks, plunging bass lines and drum machine medicine. Here, ‘To The Woods’ rounds off the package on a velveteen note with light footed woodwinds swooping above a solid broken beat backone. “Gated Soul EP” ... Read more

Balancing: The Diary Of My Important Mixtape

– James Zabiela When the idea of making a ‘Balance CD proper’ was suggested to me I was filled with dread. I was of course excited and grateful to be given the amazing opportunity, but I immediately felt this enormous pressure that it needed to be something special. It had been so long since I’d put anything out that I was pretty daunted by the prospect, especially given some of the mixes Balance have been responsible for putting out, many of them considered classics. Still, at least I would have plenty time to make it, with a deadline that seemed ... Read more

DHA x The Boom Room Present: James Zabiela @ Snowbombing

Last month we traveled to the Austrian Alps to visit Snowbombing. In the picturesque mountain town of Mayrhofen we braced for a week of top DJ and live acts, partying, local scenery and Wiener schnitzels. During DHA’s own stage hosting on the festival’s Saturday, we had the honour to have James Zabiela on the bill. At the Bruck n’ Stadl that night Zabiela gave away a spectacular show laced with tech-house and acid. Luckily our partners at The Boom Room were there to record his set so you can enjoy it too.  See also: Report – Snowbombing Festival [soundcloud url=”https://soundcloud.com/theboomroomofficial/098-the-boom-room-james-zabiela” comments=”true” ...

Report: Snowbombing 2016

Described as the world’s number 1 festival on snow, Austria’s Snowbombing lived up to its name during its 2016 edition – its most sweeping one yet. Taking place between 4 – 9 April in Mayrehofen Austria, Snowbombing (now in its 17th year) brought over 6,000 up-for-it party animals to the Alps, for a week-long exercise in dance, sport, and nature. The event, which is spread out across multiple venues in and around the picturesque town, is set up more in a BPM Festival or Winter Music Conference way, rather than your conventional festival setup. Meaning, rather than a main stage with several ... Read more
