Headlining the night are the good homies Willy Joy, BUKU, Regulators, and Great Dane with local support from Satta Don Dada, Deklo, and Dogfingaz. To spice things up a bit, we asked our friends from Prime Social Group to jump on board and add this to The Path on their “Trail To The Forest” series. Expect tons of Electric Forest themed surprises all night long. The night is hosted at the beautiful river-front Sinbads venue and will be bumping until the wee hours of the morning.

It’s for sure Summer time and judging by all the recent drops, it’s going to be a jamming Summer! Today’s Summer tune is a remix of Konshens “Gal A Bubble” contorted by Major Lazer, Bro Safari, and ETC! ETC!. The tune features a very reggae-ton feel over some sunny bass. If you have a convertible, download this song and go bump it in your whip right now! These three producers can bring the heat alone but together they can move mountains. This tune is impressive and will be an instant beach classic! Grab your FREE download and have a great day!

Wouldn’t it be something if an event the size of X Games came to our hometown of Detroit? Well, the dream may be more of a reality now that Detroit is one of four finalists to be the next host for the Summer X Games in 2014, 15′, and 16′ thanks to Kevin Krease & Garret Koehler who took their passion to the internet and gathered a huge following. There couldn’t be a city who needs an event like this more than Detroit and to see our bid go this far is great. It is time now, to step up to the plate and begin supporting the bid like you couldn’t have thought of. Up against Chicago, Charlotte, and Austin, we have a great chance to show the World that not only is our urban playground the perfect venue for the X Games but our community is the perfect demographic for this event. With the support of seemingly every Detroit representative and business owner, the team has been able to build credit for Detroit and will hopefully soon call this city the proud home of the Summer X Games!
Today, the XGamesDetroit crew released this stunning official video documenting a taste of our urban landscape meshed with insane extreme sports. We hope you find this as amazing as we do and we also hope you can join the cause!

It looks like fans attending Electric Forest this June are in for a special treat. For the first time since the opening of the Double JJ Ranch as a festival site, the infamous Sherwood Forest will be expanding in size! In honor of the upgrade, the festival has invited artists from all over the globe to participate in the Electric Forest 2013 ‘Plug In’ Program. The program gives participants the chance to have their proposed art installation sponsored and showcased by the festival. Planning on only granting one winner, the support for the program was evidently overwhelming leaving the Plug In team with the chance to select a few more winners. Beginning with The Cerebrum of Sherwood Forest, the first selection, the team will now select 3 new installations to join the Cerebrum creation which is the brainchild of Imago Collective.
Today we are excited to announce the second winner to become sponsored. The Electric Garden installation spawned from the unique and creatively charged minds of Laura Edelman and Dave Sumberg or otherwise known as Das’LaLa. The installation is “an interactive, electronic, touch-sensitive garden that glows brightly upon human touch”. Described as an electroluminescent field, The Electric Garden is guaranteed to be the perfect addition to The Sherwood Forest. We are super stoked to see what the rest of the winners have in store for us.
Electric Forest 2013 is taking place in Rothbury, Michigan from June 27th-30th. To learn more about the Plug In program click here. Tickets are on sale now and moving swiftly. For more information and for the full music lineup check out our link here! We hope to see you in the Forest!!

About 15 minutes ago, Pete Tong took to his Facebook page to announce that Daft Punk will be joining him on the airwaves for this Friday’s edition of his BBC Radio One show. We are not quite clear on the details of the show but we do know that if it is anything like their last BBC visit in 97′ where they recorded their infamous essential mix, we will be in store for a treat. We can hopefully expect to hear some exclusive listens of their upcoming album Random Access Memoriesand for that we will be sure to stay tuned to our radios come this Friday night at 9 pm.
It’s time for the second annual Wavefront Music Festival to takeover Montrose Beach in Chicago, Illinois. This year, they plan to top it all with another huge lineup on Chicago’s hottest electronic beachfront festival. The festival, taking place July 5th-7th will feature some of the biggest names in dance music today and is sure to be a hot spot for some amazing and unique opportunities. Think American Ibiza.

Gaining a large magnitude of support from mainstream media, Wavefront 2013 will be in the spotlight come July and we are excited to bring you all of the freshest coverage.

It’s a hot week for remixes and we have another one for you to rep. This one is from our good homies OG Status and it is their take on Judge’s tune “Money All Around Me“. If anyone could make the original go harder its the gentlemen of OG Status and boy do they do just that. Taking the track on a walk through the hood and into the trap, OG Status came to play. We hope you find this one as electrifying as we do. The remix is available for FREE download and is sure to be a hit at any gathering. Crack a 40 and bump that new OG Status.
Okay, so maybe we are a bit late on this one, but RL Grime is obviously about to have a huge Summer & this remix of Cheif Keef’s hit “Love Sosa” is just a physical example of how hard Mr. Grime is going to roll. We are huge fans of this tune and we already know you are too judging by the 85,000 plays and counting that this tune has racked up on RL Grime’s Soundcloud alone. The remix is huge, and even bigger, it’s a free download. Grab your copy and bump it hard!
