CASSY Coachella Debut - April 13 & April 20!
North America Tour Dates
“At her residencies at some of the world's coolest clubs...Cassy rocks swaggery, superstylish house with tons of classic New York and Chicago flavor.” - Rolling Stone
International DJ icon Cassy brings her unique house and techno sounds to Coachella on Saturday, April 13 and Saturday April 20, followed by dates in North America and an extensive touring schedule in Europe. In today's male-dominated DJ culture, Cassy remains a long-respected and talented artist at the top of her field -- one who, in today’s digital world, still retains the old-school aesthetic of playing mostly vinyl sets. As such, she was featured as one of only two women in Rolling Stone's The 25 DJs That Rule The Earth and was featured in Billboard Magazine’s Ultra Music Festival (7) Sets To Watch this year. Cassy is also slated to release a compilation on London's club fabric's eponymous long-running mix series this August 2013.
Effortless style and flawless ability has led Cassy to residencies at some of the world's most prestigious clubs, including Berlin's PanoramabarRex Club in Paris and Trouw in Amsterdam. Cassy is a top tier house and techno artist with a discography that includes collaborations with Kirk Degiorgio, Swayzak and Ricardo Villalobos. She has been featured on some of the most respected record labels in the scene, such as Desolat, Soma, Poker Flat, Balance Music and Osgut Ton, and was the obvious choice to mix the most recent Cocoon Heroes album last summer, which set the scene for an incredible season in Ibiza. Born Catherine Britton to an Austrian mother and a Caribbean father, Cassy is a DJ as well as vocalist and true world citizen. She calls many places home, having lived in Vienna, London, Berlin,  Paris and Amsterdam. Cassy is a devoted woman about craftsmanship, as she wholeheartedly believes in vinyl to give that special feeling to her DJ sets. Cassy's performances are a harmonious blend of tradition, imagination and individualism—just like her personality.

Over the course of the next two weekends Moby’s DJ performances as part of Coachella 2013 will signify his first appearance at the festival since it began in 1999. Since it’s conception under the shade of the palm trees that line Empire Polo Club’s fields in Indio, California Coachella has evolved to become the opening event for the american summer music festival season. Spanning two weekends, April 12-14th and April 19th-21st Moby will be DJing in the Sahara Tent on both Saturdays: the 13th and the 20th.


Moby will be premiering NEW MUSIC from his recent collaborations with producers Loops of Fury, Zodiac Cartel, Cold Blank and Darth & Vader, to get ready for the experience head over to Potato.tv for Moby’s most recent guest mix.


Potato.tv is a celebration of all things this innovative festival in the desert fosters—amazing electronic music and explosive energy. Curated by Skrillex, Diplo and A-Trak Potato.tv was excited to have Moby lend a little something to get the party started in the days building up to his live event.


Moby is treating his audience to a visual collaboration as well: NASA images from space! Against the desert skies videos will be presented, encompassing NASA’s wide range of space exploration and technology, from human spaceflight to the Hubbel Telescope, to heliospheric and planetary probe imagery.


Piers Sellers, an astronaut for NASA is beyond excited for this opportunity, “NASA continues to push outwards. We’re looking at the health of the Earth, the surface of Mars and we’re finding thousands of new plants around other stars. It’s a big universe – all of us at NASA are happy to help you explore it.”


For Moby collaborating with NASA is like living out a childhood dream. “When I was growing up I was a science and sci-fi obsessed kid, and now I'm a science and sci-fi obsessed adult... I’ve done lots of things with NASA over the years, and I'm really thrilled that they've offered to let me use all of these amazing visuals during my Coachella DJ set.”


Moby will also be reuniting with another previous partner, these now sacred Polo Grounds of Indo, California.


In 1999 I was asked to play the first Coachella, and it ended up being one of my all-time favorite festival experiences.  Because of scheduling issues I haven't been able to play any of the subsequent years, but this year I'm really, truly excited to be going back for the first time since 1999.  I'm also incredibly proud of Paul and the people behind Coachella, for having the vision to start this amazing festival in the desert.”

NEW YORK, NY (April 10th, 2013) – At long last, the world’s #1 DJ, Armin van Buuren, is locked-and-loaded and ready to pull the trigger on his fifth full-length studio album, INTENSE (Armada North America), released in the U.S. on May 3rd. Kicking-off his springtime jaunt with television and radio appearances in New York City on May 2nd, van Buuren will then devote the entire month of May to touring throughout North America in support of his album. The first single from INTENSE was just released to critical acclaim. The song, “This Is What It Feels Like,” features Trevor Guthrie.


Having taken three years to complete, Armin van Buuren’s INTENSE album feels like a victory lap from one of the world’s most popular and hardworking DJs and producers. While staying true to his signature emotional, soaring, uplifting sound, INTENSE also sees van Buuren spreading his wings and reaching out into less familiar territory, musically. The result is a brilliant gem of an album, a story of enlightenment told from start to finish.

Release Short Film ‘The Interview’



The Knife have released a short film 'The Interview'.  Created in conjunction with Marit Östbergwho directed the “Full of Fire” video, it goes some way to explain their intentions and thought processes behind their startling new album Shaking The Habitual, released this week to wide critical acclaim.


You can watch the film HERE.


“We didn’t plan to make another album

We wanted to do something again but had to find a purpose

Music can be so meaningless

We had to find lust


Started to improvise

to find something less predictable

to let go of what we already knew about music

explore what we didn't

without requiring complete answers


letting go

step in to oblivion

to forget expectations


by entering the work process with an open and inquiring mindset, the record turned in to something completely different than it would have been if the end goal had been a finished album all along


Once you stop caring about rules.”


You can buy Shaking The Habitual now from http://theknife.net/shaking-the habitual orhttp://www.itunes.com/theknife



"The record thrums with libidinal energies and animal instincts as well as mutable electronic frequencies"


“Instead of sharing different heartbeats, she and brother Olof Dreijer are once again quickening them."


"A frenetic techno pulse runs throughout Habitual, but while most of the dance-music world is mad about MDMA, they're more interested in DNA, in the way that electro-stimulus can work its mutating magic at the cellular level, resequencing genes according to the logic of an undulating oonce-ooncebeat."




"-a fearless piece of work with its own logic, one that shears away all safety nets."



"The reclusive duo's new album is an epic, occasionally haunting tour de force."



“Shaking the Habitual is, inarguably, an achievement.


It is the Knife's most political, ambitious, accomplished album, but in a strange way it also feels like its most personal”

-Pitchfork 8.4, Best New Music



"...the Knife has created a work of art that’s not just a dream waiting to be realized, but a living, breathing reality that’s waking you up to what’s possible in the wildest of imaginations."

-PopMatters 9/10



"Shaking The Habitual isn’t an album that you can consume piecemeal; it’s an album that demands that you get in its level."




"This music has deep weirdness but incredible will and charisma."

-New York Times



“Theirs is the place where things go bump in the night—a place where the dark side of politics and dance music meet.”

-Under The Radar 8.5/10

Electric Zoo might not be the country's largest, splashiest, or most hyped electronic dance music festival. But we're going to go on record and say that it's the best.” — BILLBOARD
The only way to truly understand Electric Zoo and the dance music culture itself is to experience it – to put yourself dead center, amid the furry boots and driving bass lines. EDM is something you need to feel, not only hear, if you ever wish to truly understand it.” — ROLLING STONE
“For the fourth year in a row,  Electric Zoo has redecorated New York City's Randall's Island in its own sparkly neon image,  transforming the East River outpost from public park to a floating big-name rave boat.” — SPIN
What the people of Made Event do best is bring together a line up of considerable diversity.” —DANCINGASTRONAUT.com
“The selection of artists is top notch here every year. Whereas many other festivals play it safe and stack their lineups with the most famous and the flavor of the month, the curators of Zoo love to switch it up year after year, introducing fresh new artists and interesting combinations.” — LESSTHAN3.com
“Some of the best memories of my life were made at @ElectricZooNY. Thank you.” -  @DJMelodic_
"@ElectricZooNY going all 4 years and seeing it turn into one of the best festivals in the country." - @Sremite
It's a real pleasure to perform to such a big yet discerning audience in one of the greatest cities in the world.” –ABOVE & BEYOND

"I'm so happy to be back at Electric Zoo after 2 years and I am deeply honoured that electronic dance music finally has touched base in the US. It’s something that I’ve hoped for since I began playing in the US in 2001. Festivals such as Electric Zoo are essential to that development and I’m really proud to be part of that!" - ARMIN VAN BUUREN

"Can't wait to be back playing on Electric Zoo this summer! Last time I played Electric Zoo was 2010 and I can only imagine how it will be this year!–AVICII
"I have played at Electric Zoo in New York many times and it feels like home! It just gets bigger and better every year. I'm honoured to be welcomed back again and can't wait to party with all my fans.” –BENNY BENASSI
" Last year at Electric Zoo was one of the best shows of the year. Now we're coming back bigger and louder! New Yorkers might be stylish people but we promise to make all of you ugly as hell!" -DADA LIFE

“[Electric Zoo] was fantastic; the crowd is wild, cheerful and knows its music so I could play an ambitious 180° across the board set. My favorite! I consider New York as my home in the US. During my set I had the feeling I was adopted for good. That felt amazing.” –MARTIN SOLVEIG
“New York is one of the hubs for EDM in the USA. The energy here is over the top. The people bring it harder than most places around the world. It is an honor to play at this festival which is one of my favorites around the world.” – STEVE AOKI
"New York City has always been an important place for dance music and it's one of my favorite cities in the world to play. The energy and passion from the fans at Electric Zoo is special and I can't wait to return" -TIËSTO

We are proud to announce the re-emergence of James Holden. His new album The Inheritors will be released on 17 June 2013. 

Check the first track ‘Gone Feral’ here:

The vinyl version of ‘Gone Feral’ will be released on 8 April.

: James Holden

TitleThe Inheritors album

Label: Border Community

Release Date: 17 June 2013

Formats: Vinyl/ Digital/ CD

Cat no: 40BCCD/40BCLP

Distributor: PIAS


A full seven years has elapsed since James Holden’s milestone The Idiots Are Winning debut album in 2006. Rightfully acclaimed on release (The Guardian felt “The most astonishing debut in electronic music since Boards of Canada's Music Has The Right To Children”), Holden’s deep influence as a producer, DJ and mentor behind the Border Community imprint has grown tenfold in the intervening years. His renown and respect as an innovator is unparalleled, emerging as a teenage prodigy whilst studying at college, he was soon earning kudos and acquiring peer respect from the 2000s towering dance music figures across the spectrum. What he has produced as a follow up goes way beyond purely ‘dance’ music. Always a singular character with a tangential ear for sound, Holden has woven a rich aural tapestry that elevates him higher within the realms of production. Nobody is making electronic music as explorative as what is found within his new album The Inheritors due out 17 June 2013.

While his immersion in the dance community is ongoing, playing international events across the globe every week, his output as a remix producer has been nearly as select as his own scarce releases (a single new Holden track, ‘Triangle Folds’, tantalisingly appeared in his DJ Kicks set in 2010.) The remix roll call over the past six years is short, but telling; RadioheadCaribou (with whom he also performed live with his modular synthesizers as part of the Caribou Vibration Ensemble for a series of ATP shows in 2011) MogwaiKieran HebdenSteve ReidMercury RevKate Wax (from his own Border Community stable).

As a precociously talented young producer, Holden was remixing Madonna, Depeche Mode and Britney Spears, but latterly his interests have turned inward and into the past, where a distinctly English sensibility has found a resonant voice, if one with a rose-tinted, sepia-toned hue. Or as Holden says himself “rose-tinted past as alternate future”. Seeking a path beyond the realms of “sharp, painfully literal nature of modern digital music”, Holden sought “a surfeit of fuzziness: the chaos machines making infinite fractal depths of natural detail in everything, the timing dictated by what I felt in the moment rather than the grids of a sequencer and the recording aiming to feel 'found' or 'captured' rather than 'made'”, he explains. This approach has paid huge dividends.

The Inheritors (the album title is borrowed from the William Golding book) is an album that fully immerses you in a timeless space. Sounding like spewed molten metal from the industrial age to the head rush of London 2013, James Holden is clearly not seeking to emulate anyone bar himself and lift said bar in doing so.

Having collected, over the course of several years, a huge analogue modular system, Holden supplemented this with his own hand-coded computer programs, building a series of hybrid analogue-digital machines. “Complex, unpredictable beasts whose sole purpose was to be an expressive instrument for me to play a single song. There is something very Heath Robinson about the machines I build,” Holden adds. “Chaos systems with stable states and unstable states, modulating themselves as I fight to steer them. Everything is first takes. It was all a moment. It's recorded like folk music - no overdubs, no virtuosity. A man learnt some instruments to a basic standard and played them. Where needed, he sang”.

What could be lazily brushed off as ‘techy’ is nevertheless bustling with life and virtuosity. You can just picture Holden, gleefully gaining pleasure from these one offs, as he plays everything (including all vocal contributions apart from Shimble on ‘Circle of Fifths’) on this album, except saxophone by Etienne Jaumet from Zombie Zombie on ‘The Caterpillar’s Intervention.’

Holden points to the music of Elgar and the KLF’s Chill Out as uniquely English points of reference, alongside ceilidh music, pentatonic folk scales, and ancient pagan rituals. “The environment I've spent a lot of time in over the last years - raves and clubs - is completely pagan: this totally natural human thing that happens on a deeper level than the conscious/rational. The communal ritual. To me that's what paganism refers to: the mystic, intangible and unquantifiable things. This is still rave music,” he says of album opener Rannoch Dawn, “just for better raves than currently exist.”

‘A Circle Inside a Circle’ continues this theme with added pagan panache and windcheater breaks. Music that Holden imagined could make him “dance without being dance music in any recognisable way”. But one track that surely nobody could claim was not dance music of the highest order is ‘Renata’; all polyrhythms and coiled spring energy. 
From ‘Sky Burial’s murky gothic chamber music to the woozy hydraulics and parp of ‘inter-city 125’ and ‘Gone Feral’s modular pulsing abstraction, ‘Blackpool Late Eighties’ bluesy memory-laden refrain to the spooked To Rococo Rot-esque ‘Circle of Fifths’,The Inheritors has abundant hidden depths. 

With an adult’s view backwards to his teenage years which has helped shape this formidable record, Holden explains “Long walks forced an appreciation of the beauty of the English countryside. Being a hormonal teen into epic rock at the time I wanted to soundtrack that. British landscapes have a grandness but are never too big - when you have them in mind it excuses a sort of modest grandness in the music”. If English earth and landscape were given a modern voice, this could very well be it.

The Idiots Are Winning just came, I'd written some songs that went together. It wasn't conceived as an album. Albums made a big impression on me growing so I had this strong feeling that a proper album had to be somehow more than just songs together. The first time I heard Black Dog’s Spanners (or any one of dozens of other records) it was the first time I ever heard any music like that. So my album had to recreate that feeling - despite that being an irrational goal - I want people playing it to be hearing a new kind of music for the first time. I wanted it to be a whole new world, a mythology, complete. As opposed to a product in a cycle: an old-fashioned idealistic version of what an album is. Naive. But i'm fine with being naive.
In dance music you're face to face with redundant, pointless music the whole time - records that don't need to exist because every part of them already exists elsewhere. Maybe the same everywhere. I wanted to make the opposite and try to find my own successful combinations and strategies. That part-explains the long gestation I guess. But what would be the point of doing anything else?

The album is not meant to sound like now, but it's not meant to sound like the past either. Is it closer to one than the other? The limit of my objectivity is about here”.

As his musical palette broadens, Holden is now certain that this is the album that he always wanted to make: bold, epic and psychedelic, striking a delicate balance between weighty tome and transformative trip, and with a production aesthetic that is all his own. For many musicians happening upon a successful formula, the temptation is to simply repeat ad infinitum, but the James Holden trajectory has demonstrated quite the opposite tendency: a streak of success merely provides the necessary impetus to forge ahead into a new uncharted future (past).
