2014 was a big year for Firefly. On top of successfully continuing one of the greatest east coast music festivals, Firefly and company managed to snag a partnership with Goldenvoice – the most successful US festival producer (you might know them for a little production called ‘Coachella’). Thus, vastly increasing expectations for 2015’s much anticipated experience. Today, among the bit of controversy with a late lineup reveal, the east coast’s Firefly managed to make a splash with a lineup both vast and varied. Included are several returning veterans such as the Killers and Zedd, alone some of the very best new up-and coming acts.
While internet speculators argue about whether or not Paul McCartney will be the last mystery performer revealed (alleged contract negotiations are currently in the pipeline), make sure to grab your tickets while prices are at $250!

This one is super fresh. Featuring a classic Lipp style beat and a really beautifully tuned sample, this beat is super feel good and catchy. The piano is super great, and of course the synths can’t be touched. Eliot Lipp and Mux Mool get a 10 from us on “Telescope“. There’s not much more we can say about this sick beat that Eliot Lipp can’t say better himself:
“This track came together after an afternoon of digging through records and plugging in old synths. Beatmaker Mux Mool and I have been friends for a long time and we both share an appreciation for moments in music that take us by surprise. This song is about experiencing the beauty of the universe on a human level. Love, Nature, Space; these are all tough subjects to base your art on without being cheesy. Mux and I figured “why not start with cheesy” and there’s nothing cheesier than sampling an 80’s ballad. It’s because of that approach the two of us were able to add a unique musical depth to this song. Hope you guys enjoy.”

After watching Michal Menert close his recent Detroit show with this track, we have been antsy to learn more, and sure enough, it’s the second single forthcoming on his Space Jazz album and it’s called “Everything Shines”. The chilled out beat and smooth vocals come together in a giant vibe filled puddle of excellent. The Super Best Records head says the following about the tune:
“Everything Shines is an ode to long nights spent losing ourselves in the moment. It’s a look back at the first taste of everything around us shining, at a feeling we chase for the rest of our lives, a split second of tasting something that lingers on our palette forever.”
