Eighteen cities added to world tour, more to be announced.

NEW YORK, NY (October 21st, 2013)Armin van Buuren announced the cities and dates of his upcoming world tour: Armin Only – Intense. Next to the first two (sold-out) editions in the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome in early November, the tour will also land in cities such as New York, St. Petersburg, Toronto, Mexico city, Sydney, Johannesburg and many more. ALDA Events, in charge of the concept development, emphasizes that the new Armin Only – Intense will be a spectacle for each and every visitor.

Concept and Vision

The new world tour is inspired by Armin’s latest artist album, Intense (Armada Music). Armin Only is a concept that started in the early days of Armin’s career. Since the first editions in the early millennium years, the show has grown and come to life. Armin said, ”Unlike today, now that it’s all based on short sets and quick highlights, it used to be all about the long sets, the musical trips. That’s what Armin Only is based on – to take the clubbers on a six-plus hour journey into music. Through the Armin Only - Intense shows, I can tell them the full story of my Intense album – in fact of everything I’d like to say.”

New Approach

With a new world tour, greater expectations arise. Armin van Buuren and ALDA Events have teamed up with famous theatre director, Jos Thie, and creative mind, Sander Reneman (owner of 250K). The two directors teamed up with the Intense crew, resulting in a completely unconventional and fresh approach to an electronic dance music show. Armin said of the new approach to the show, “The basis of Armin Only will always be a DJ set, but to make it more interesting for the crowd, I’m going to try and really make the live moments almost like you would witness them in a theater.” As a result, there will be an extensive rehearsal period of two weeks, during which time Armin and his crew will perfect the show. Exclusive preview shows have been added in Brabanthallen before the Ziggo Dome shows for a relatively intimate audience of 2,000 people per show. Tickets for the preview shows are available via www.ArminOnly.com. There will also be the creation of a road movie filmed during the entire tour, which will be made possible by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Philips.


On Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th of November, Armin welcomes all of his fans during the official kick-off of his world tour in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where he will unfold the many layers of this new show. Tickets for the first Armin Only – Intense show sold-out within hours and tickets for the second show sold-out within one weekend. After this premiere, Armin Only – Intense will continue its journey around the world. Audiences can expect to be blown away by an exclusive six-hour set by Armin van Buuren, including stunning live performances, dance acts and top-notch technical effects that have never been used in an electronic dance music (EDM) show before.

Joseph Capriati 'Self Portrait' album

Release: December



Techno's heir apparent drops his long awaited second album 'Self Portrait' on Adam's Beyer's revered Drumcode imprint.


There's no room to argue, Joseph Capriati has enjoyed his finest year to date and his escalation as one the principle profiles in techno knows no boundaries.


The Napoli-born firebrand has just completed a stunning season in Ibiza as a resident of Marco Carola's Music On at Amnesia. Anyone who caught him play the main room this season will agree - his special ability to combine an infectious stage presence, with razor sharp DJ skills draws techno fans to the dancefloor like bees to a honey pot. No wonder island legend Carola's handpicked him to perform on 8 separate occasions, more than any other artist this season.


Combine this momentum with an outstanding 2013 that already saw him headline his first coast-to-coast tour of the US, play a historic 12 hour set at the Metropolis in Napoli, plus headline every major techno festival on the planet, the time couldn't be better for Capriati to unleash 'Self Portrait', his sophomore LP.


Already ingrained in the consciousness of techno lovers this year thanks to 'Fratello' and 'Awake' the pair of searing dancefloor slayers that were released in June as the album's first singles, 'Self Portrait' goes deeper than the club stormers the Italian is famed for. Over 11 future-facing tracks, Capriati displays his deft production skill to supersede his reputation for bodyslamming dancefloors.


Tracks such as 'Electrolytic', the album's atmospheric opener evokes mood with a barrage of steely synths, gritty drums and industrial beats, while 'Self Portrait', the typically reflective album title track is an understated ambient gem led by warm trickles of melody that pairs nicely with 'Naked' which exhibits the producer's deft skills for moulding sparse stripped back minimal that kicks along with cheeky vox and shuffling percussion.


He further reinforces his ability to create addictive club rollers with the quirky, squiggly groover 'Easy Come Easy Go', while the masterful 'Basic Elements', chugs along with rattling industrial percussion before giving way to a sublime wall of melody that's just the kind of genius fare that gets his diehard fans raising Italian flags inscribed with 'JOSEPH CAPRIATI KING OF TECHNO' regularly at this gigs. And with an album this good, who are we to argue?


1. Electrolytic

2. Easy Come Easy Go

3. Always and Forever

4. Deep Thoughts

5. This Then That

6. Partenopeo

7. Awake

8. Basic Elements

9. Elements

10. Fratello

11. Self Portrait

Paul Kalkbrenner Announces Debut North American Solo Tour

‘Guten Tag’ Will See German Techno Act Play Six Live Gigs In December

Paul Kalkbrenner today announced his first solo live tour of America. Synonymous with Berlin techno, Kalkbrenner is one of electronic music’s most singular artists, who despite topping charts and selling out arenas continues to play the style of techno that has defined his career over seven albums: propulsive and melodic, dark yet uplifting.

After joining Sonar On Tour last year in America and playing Coachella’s Sahara Stage this year, Kalkbrenner just played a three-hour live sold-out show at NYC’s Output. The forthcoming US tour follows the release of his seventh studio album, ‘Guten Tag’, self-released on Paul Kalkbrenner Music, it was a top 5 album in Germany and a No.1 record in Switzerland.

Watch the video for his most recent single ‘Der Buhold’, from ‘Guten Tag’ here:

Kalkbrenner’s Guten Tag North American tour will take in six dates in at revered concert venues including NYC’s Webster Hall, Chicago’s Metro and the Henry Fonda in Los Angeles, the tour kicks off December 5 in NYC. As with all Kalbrenner shows, all tour performances will be live.

A dance music crossover act, who crossed over before the term EDM was even conceived, Kalkbrenner is a Platinum selling artist, who’s track ‘Sky + Sand’ broke the German singles record, spending over 127 consecutive weeks in the Top 100. He has pushed further boundaries with his outstanding and unconventional performance as ‘Ickarus’ in the cult movie ‘Berlin Calling’, which was an unflinching look into one of the world’s most revered sub-cultures, Berlin’s techno scene. Kalkbrenner produced and recorded the movie’s soundtrack, which has sold over 250,000 album copies.

At 15 years old Kalkbrenner became obsessed with collecting the records that were soundtracking the first wave of Berlin’s iconic clubs, Tresor, Planet, Walfisch and E-Werk. He started producing his own music and forged a long-standing relationship with Ellen Allien’s highly influential Berlin label bPitch Control. In 2011 he launched his own label self-releasing his sixth album ‘Icke Wieder’, followed by his seventh, ‘Guten Tag’ 18 months later. Both of his self-released albums were top 5 albums in Germany. His 2011 album tour sold over 125,000 tickets.

A Global Celebration of Electronic Dance Culture, Show Features Stunning Pyrotechnic & Light Effects and Acrobatic Performances all Synchronized to the World’s Best House Music

October 26, 2013

Barclay’s Center

620 Atlantic Avenue

Brooklyn, New York 11217

Featuring Mr. White, Nic Fanciulli, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Fedde le Grand and MC Gee

Sensation, the world’s most spectacular dance and music phenomena will celebrate its 100th global show with a special performance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on October 26, 2013 marking the close of its successful inaugural US tour which included a show in Oakland on September 14th as well as upcoming shows in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on October 5th and Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena on October 12th.

Sensation’s most popular show, ‘Ocean of White’ brings together heart pumping visual theatrics and the best EDM DJ talent to create one of world’s largest dance spectacles, uniting 30,000-50,000 revelers dressed in all white. Last year Sensation hosted two sold out dates at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center - along with 97 Sensation events for millions of visitors in more than 20 countries, including Amsterdam, Ibiza and Sao Paulo.  Ocean of White, presented by Netherlands based ID&T, in conjunction with Goldenvoice, offers a stunning visual spectacle for music and dance fans worldwide featuring 200 different types of pyrotechnical effects22 water fountains and choreographed flying acrobatics all synchronized to the pulsating sound of the world’s best house music. The New York show will feature musical talent that has been touring with Sensation around the globe, including Mr White, Nic Fanciulli, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Fedde le Grand and MC Gee.

Playing off Sensation’s signature all white dress code, audiences will be surrounded by the mysteries and elegance of the ocean with oversized LED lit jellyfish suspended from the air, sea inspired acrobatic performances and light exhibitions centered on a 236 foot centered stage. ‘Ocean of White’ was performed in front of an audience of 30,000 at Rogers Center in Toronto and most recently at the Oracle Center in San Francisco.

Each city on the Sensation U.S. Tour was selected for the key role they play in shaping the country’s music and nightlife trends.  From the Bay Area’s iconic independent art and music culture, Las Vegas’ glamorous excess, Miami’s pulsating 24/7 dance music offerings and finally coming full circle in New York where the U.S.'s central hub for fashion inspired the first Sensation US show, each performance will offer a unique visual perspective on electronic dance music tailored for all audiences.

White has a deep meaning for Sensation. The mandatory all white dress code was instituted from the beginning as a way to pay tribute to ID&T, the organization behind Sensation, co-founder Miles Stutterheim who passed away in a tragic car accident. Miles’ funeral became a celebration of his life with guests arriving in white and DJs playing music in his memory. From that point on Miles’ brother and ID&T co-founder Duncan Stutterheim have come together every year and throw a party honoring his life.

Guests must be at 21 years of age or older to attend Sensation and white attire is mandatory.

The organization behind Sensation is ID&T - also known for its award winning festival Tomorrowland. Sensation was initiated in Amsterdam in 2000, and since then millions of people around the world has experienced one of the most spectacular dance and music phenomena in

the world.

While Sensation’s reputation has grown, the music has evolved and taken on it’s own style – it’s not just about booking the biggest name DJ's, it’s about choosing the people who can make Sensation the best event possible, and play the most cutting edge music of today and tomorrow.
