Meerdere festivals in één
Mysteryland creëert tal van sferen voor het publiek, zodat bezoekers zich binnen één dag op meerdere festivals wanen. Zo belooft Q Dance  wederom een spectaculaire show te worden met een programma van formaat. Het viertal Visionquest geeft acte de présence op een eigen stage. Mysteryland is dit jaar één van de dertien festivals in de wereld waar deze vierkoppige act in zijn volledigheid te zien is. Dubstep organisatie RESIST heeft grote namen als Caspa, Zeds Dead en Joker, maar ook ‘Harlem Shuffle’ trap artiest Baauer weten te strikken. Dirty Dutch host dit jaar de Big Top tent die vorig jaar van opening tot sluit bomvol stond met onder andere de Amerikaan Flosstradamus.Verder presenteert Mysteryland Shermanology, Deniz Koyu, Yellow Claw en Tiga.

Bijzonder talent
Naast vele grote namen biedt Mysteryland uiteraard ook weer podium aan een breed scala veelbelovend en bijzonder talent. De openingsceremonie wordt verzorgd door Musclefarm. Het creatieve Amsterdamse collectief Knuckle Duster geeft het festival kleur met bijzondere acts als Skip & Die live, Palmbomen en Valentijn. Internationale kruisbestuivingen vinden plaats op de Totem stage waar culturen elkaar ontmoeten, met muziek van warme live deephouse, jazz, hip-hop, soul latin, booty, carribean, tot een reis door Chileense geluiden zoals cumbia, folk, Chileense pop en poëzie. En dat is nog maar het puntje van de muzikale ijsberg!

Toonaangevend
“In de afgelopen twintig jaar is Mysteryland uitgegroeid tot één van de meest toonaangevende elektronische festivals. Inmiddels wordt het festival ook in Chili gevierd,” vertelt Irfan van Ewijk, de ‘I’ uit ID&T. “Dit is mede te danken aan het feit dat er naast de muzikale programmering nog zoveel meer te doen, te zien en te beleven is. Zo is er de kleinste bioscoop ter wereld bij Nostalgia, een Mysteryland kunstroute en het kunstenaarscollectief Shit Art, dat een aantal toiletgroepen tot hoogwaardige kunstobjecten omtovert. Daarnaast strijkt de Bollywood Bar op Mysteryland neer met onder andere dans van Ish en ‘spoken word’ van Poetry Circle Nowhere.  Mysteryland staat bekend om de indrukwekkende podia waar honderden mensen een jaar lang aan werken. We kijken daarom ook uit naar een knallend jubileumfeest!’’

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.

Introducing: Tol Gruber

Apostolis Loussis or better known in the techno world as Tol Gruber, was born in Athens on August 2nd, 1986.

At the young age of nine, he began his education in music with the guitar, but his passion slowly began to steer towards electronic music and the desire to compose such music. He immersed himself completely in the electronic music scene and each experience influenced his sound even more in his own productions.

Completely self taught, over the years, Tol’s eclectic catalogue increased with solid productions. Through many trials and tribulations, he finally discovered his true passion and niche in Techno music as deep, dark and experimental sounds became the “signature” of Tol Gruber’s musical compositions.

Over the years, some of Tol Gruber’s music has been played on radio stations like Cannibal radio. He has been interviewed by ART UBER ALLES and Freeze magazine and with increased experience and fine tuning in his Techno, he caught the attention of Brood Audio, which saw the potential in him and signed him as an artist.

Besides having released previously on Focus Records, Shout records, and Italo Business, he also manages his own label, Voodoo Records.

His passion continues to drive him and be the main force behind his music. With releases lined up on Brood Audio, Frakture Audio, Hybrid Confusion and keeping busy in the studio, you can be sure to expect a lot more from Tol Gruber.

Hed Kandi Balearica Unplugged ft. Lovely Laura & Tyrrell

With the White Isle summer coming to an end Hed Kandi’s saxophonist and vocalist Laura Fowles A.K.A The Lovely Laura and producer extraordinaire Tyrrell come together to bring you their debut artist album straight from the sunsets of Ibiza, Hed Kandi: Balearica Unplugged. They go back to basics, bringing the Hed Kandi fans a taste of their Balearic musical roots. They disconnected the decks, ditched the electronic beats and unplugged the sound system stripping things back creating a medley of deliciously unplugged covers of their favourite dance songs. Tyrrell picked up the six string, laid down some sensual acoustic guitar riffs and atmospheric chords, whilst Laura added a splash of soft, husky, phenomenal vocals and sexy sax melodies.


This all combined with additional production by the legendary Steve Miller A.KA. Afterlife, brings you a wide, laid back collection all reworked with Hed Kandi’s own Balearic acoustic treatment… always keeping a sunny disposition in mind. This one CD includes their favourite renditions of songs made famous by the likes of Groove Armada, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5 & Kaskade, Friendly Fires, Empire Of The Sun and Martin Solvieg to name but a few. This essential eclectic collage of music is destined for Ibiza’s renowned ‘Sunset Strip’ for years to come, where legendary Balearic hang out hotspots such as Café Del Mar, Savannah’s or Blue Marlin celebrate the setting of the most talked about sunset, and Balearica Unplugged offers the perfect musical companion.

Introducing: DJ Ben Santiago

Ben Santiago is one of the White Isle’s most prolific DJs. Since moving to Ibiza seven years ago he has held a number of enviable residencies and played for the biggest brands in the industry, including; Café del Mar, Cream, Pacha, Base Bar, El Divino, Ibiza Rocks, Cocoon, Amnesia, Es Vive, Manumission, and Hed Kandi – who  have appointed him Ibiza resident for the third year running at their parties at Es Paradis in 2012. He is also an official A&R scout for Hed Kandi / Ministry of Sound, helping compile the music for their world famous compilations.

Internationally, Ben is musical director for Berlin Fashion Week and spins at fashion shows and private soirées for Dolce & Gabbana throughout Europe and Asia alongside saxophonist (and fiancée) Lovely Laura. The pair are also signed to Storm models and perform all over the world at exclusive events for A-list clients such as supermodel Eva Herzigova and Pink Floyd.

Appreciated for his truly Balearic approach (as showcased on his weekly Ministry Of Sound radio show and guest mix on Hed Kandi’s Beach House 2011), Ben is just as passionate spinning eclectic sets at villa and beach parties or on catwalks and yachts as he is delivering straight up house tunes in a club. His success is based on a simple premise: “Whatever the genre, if a track is going to connect with the audience then I’ll play it…”.
