Alison Wonderland has shared another single from her forthcoming album. ‘No’ is the third track to be lifted from the recent DJ Mag North America cover star’s second full-length album ‘Awake’, set for release 6th April via Astralwerks.

Porter Robinson has said that he doesn't see himself as a fully-fledged raver in a recent interview by Michelle Lhooq for The Fader.
"I don't think I've ever really been a raver," the U.S. electronic star states early on in the article.
Perhaps surprisingly, then, he goes on to say that his new album, 'Virtual Self', manages to bring together some pretty disparate sounds, all of which are direct products of rave culture; trance, jungle and slow breakbeats, to namecheck the specifics.

“It begins with a sound. Echoing, from the depths of space.
Sometimes it’s not easy to remember that Gary Richards is not only Destructo, a DJ and producer with daily increasing popularity, but that he is also the mastermind behind the massively popular HARD Events. Wrapping up the day in his office at Live Nation’s Beverly Hills headquarters, Richards is dressed like a teenager obsessed with death metal in head-to-toe in black, but talks like an excited raver fanboy. There is not a lot of wall space left in this office which houses Richards and HARD under its corporate umbrella.
The year is 2017. The month is March. This means one thing: We are going to Miami where the heat is on all night on the beach (and day!) There’s no better place to make memories (some foggier than others), and meet new people – if only for a quickie. Welcome to Miami!
The fortunes of Niles Hollowell-Dhar, aka KSHMR (pronounced ‘Kashmir’), have skyrocketed since he adopted his chosen moniker, with a nod to his Indian heritage.
