Remix Of The Day: Rihanna – Where Have You Been

After the break up of his former musical focus, Sydney-based producer Streetcleaner shifted over to the realms of electronic dance music around mid- 2011. This previous musical experience lends itself to his driving and complex style of electro house, as well as the influence of artists such as Porter Robinson, Dirtyloud and Darth & Vader. His laptop and Logic Studio are the main weapons of choice Streetcleaner uses too channel this influence into explosive, hard- hitting dance music, along with Native Instruments’ Massive and various plugins and VSTs.

While only hitting the production scene fairly recently, Streetcleaner has already shown significant potential for such a short amount of time. Even more promise is expected for 2012 for Streetcleaner, with a number of releases lined up for the future, and even bigger plans awaiting in the long-run. His release schedule for 2012 includes five massive electro dance floor destroyers, Shoreside, The Jade Monkey, FThree, Badlands and the anticipated Zenith EP.

Armada Night – Australian Tour

Armada Music always keeps its eye on the dance scene and its finger on the pulse. Besides providing EDM lovers their fix of quality music, Armada is also hosting its own events. As such, KillRockStar BigDog Entertainment are proud to present the return Australian voyage for Armada’s international event brand- Armada Night!

Over the years, the Armada Nights have managed to attract ten-thousands of dance lovers to various locations across the globe.

Introducing: Emma Hewitt – Burn The Sky Down

Making the world a little more colorful with each song, Australian singer/songwriter Emma Hewitt is proud to present her long-awaited debut album, ‘Burn The Sky Down’. Fusing ambient and pop with electronic music, each track reveals a new side of the multi-talented songstress. While taking the listener on an eclectic ride into her private universe, Emma’s warm voice lights the sky and shows exactly why the world is ready for her.

Having worked with EDM’s producer elite and winning the ‘Best Hi-NRG/Euro Track’ award at the International Dance Music Awards of 2010 with Dash Berlin collaboration ‘Waiting’, has made Emma Hewitt one of the fastest rising names in dance land. Her characteristic and versatile voice became a favorite both in and outside the EDM scene. Outstanding live performances and acoustic sessions have made her a universal crowd favorite. With ‘Burn The Sky Down’, Emma Hewitt is ready to be more than a featured vocalist.

Thinking outside the box, the album slides down multiple genres and reaches far beyond the expected. Emma: “I didn’t particularly focus on being driven by a specific genre or style so much for the album. I really tried to let each song be what I felt it should be, so stylistically it is quite eclectic, although there is definitely a common thread running through the entirety. We worked with producer Lee Groves on the album, he has worked with artists such as Marilyn Manson, Gwen Stefani and Depeche Mode, so he was great at creating the ambient soundscapes we were looking for. I wanted to cover some different territory to what people may have traditionally heard or expected from me, and to show that no matter what style the tracks were produced in, the essence and spirit of the songs remained the same. In the end we have a landscape of different moods and dynamics that will hopefully take the listener on a bit of a journey. Each song will have an ambient, or slightly pop version as well as all the various dance remixes.”

‘Burn The Sky Down’ brings you the warm and welcoming ‘Colours’, the driving ‘Foolish Boy’, dark and seductive ‘Rewind’ and ‘Crucify’, and the haunting ‘State That I’m In’ amongst many other musical jewels. Bursting with touching lyrics, strong vocals and heart-rending melodies, this is Emma Hewitt in full flight.

Grotesque Presents In Search Of Sunrise 10 – Australia

Saturday the 19th of May sees the return of the In Search of Sunrise series to the Grotesque party programme! This spring, Richard Durand will be launching the 10th part of the world-renowned compilation series and the kick-off for the world tour, true to tradition, will take place inHolland. This prestigious event is to be held by PT Events in the fabulous Central Studios inUtrecht.

The preparations are already in full swing and in the meantime Black Hole Recordings have announced that the latest theme for the series will be Australia, following the previous editions inspired by South Africa and India. “Australia is for me absolutely one of the most breathtaking countries in the world. It’s for good reason that I tour there twice a year, the land and the people there give me so much positive energy. Part 10 of In Search of Sunrise is my way to honour this beautiful country” says Durand himself.

Richard Durand will of course be treating his audience to an incredible 3-hour set. Those lucky enough to have already witnessed an edition of ISOS at Grotesque will know that Richard has a gift for entertaining the crowd and to involve them in his set. The line-up obtains an even more allure thanks to the appearance of ‘special guest’ Simon Patterson (UK), supported by another treasured ISOS regular, Alex O’Rion. Alongside the much-loved residents, RAM and Artento Divini, PT Events is proud to add German dj/producers duo Kyau & Albert to this impressive line-up.

Impressive ambiance – the dresscode
Due to the fact that the last 2 editions of In Search of Sunrise were their most successful parties ever, the organisation is full of enthusiasm for this next instalment. PT Events are nevertheless expecting a big turn-out of up-for-it party people and a truly magical party experience which has become their trademark, alongside the guaranteed spectacle of cutting-edge dance music.

The organisation would appreciate all party-goers to follow the theme of blue and white, the colours of the Australian flag. While not mandatory, the dresscode will of course add to the whole experience for all involved! If you find it impossible to dress in blue and white, please wear something else that you love to party in…..anything chique or hip will do, but leave your (erotic) party clothes at home. In the eyes of the organisation this does not fit in with their vision, so please take this into account.
