Global Dance Festival

Looks like Miami won't be the only city to see a massive 3 day electronic music festival in 2011.  The Triad Dragons of Denver, CO will be producing it's annual festival for the 8th time this year.  Like Ultra, Global started as a one day event and gathered an overwhelming following that lead to the expansion of the festival to 2 days last summer.  This summer Global will be held on July 14th-16th at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Golden, CO just 15 minutes west of Denver.  The outdoor venue is nestled amongst massive red colored rocks (hence the name) which provide for amazing natural acoustics.  Last year over 17,000 people attended Global from all over the world, will the record be broken this year?

Moby's New Album!

Moby, 44, broke out into the music scene in the early 90's by creating hypnotic dance and ambient electronic music. Go, his first single to reach the masses opened the gates for his 1999 album, “Play,” which went multi-platinum popularizing electronica in the U.S. and across the globe.  Moby describes his upcoming album, "Destroyed," as "broken down melodic electronic music for empty cities at 2 a.m." The scheduled release is to hit stores mid-May.

The inspiration:
"so, the title: 'destroyed'. i was in laguardia airport and my flight was delayed and i was wandering around and i saw a small sign that said 'unattended luggage will be destroyed', but the sign only fit one word at a time so i waited until it read 'destroyed' and i took a picture and somehow the picture and the title make sense to me when i listen to the music on the album and when i look at the other pictures in the book and yes this is a huge long run on sentence about the title and cover image of the book and album but i like run on sentences because they remind me of 'a prayer for owen meany' by john irving." - Moby Feb. 15, 2011

Be the One is the first single to be released off "Destroyed"

The World's Most Famous Outdoor Electronic Music Festival

Ultra Music Festival in Miami, part of the Winter Music Conference, will be a 3 day long event this year and is over 95% sold out!  What began as a one day event in 1999 has grown into an international destination for electronic music lovers everywhere.  The first two years the festival was held on South Beach but due to tremendous growth in attendance, relocated to Bayfront Park for 2001 and then again changed location in 2005 to the present day site of Bicentennial Park.  The festival is one of the highest grossing of its kind in the world. Thousands of spring breakers and music lovers will gather from March 25-27th to celebrate an array of electronic music artists ranging from Deadmau5 to Duran Duran.  The first official Ultra commercial for Ultra3 showcases the major talent hitting this year's stages, which is sure to set a new precedence for music festivals everywhere.
