Mumford & Sons are pleased to announce the details of the 2013 series of Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers in the UK, US, and Canada this summer.

Each Stopover combines the intimacy of a community celebration with the excitement of a world-class music festival. This year the Stopovers are expanding to a Friday night concert followed by an all-day Saturday event. Mumford & Sons will headline the Saturday show, alongside an eclectic and energetic roster of artists curated by the band themselves. A series of smaller events involving local businesses, venues, and, most importantly, local people will happen in and around the town.

About this year’s upcoming Stopover tour, Mumford & Sons said: “The Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers are all about live music. We get to put them on in towns not normally frequented by touring bands in busses or splitter vans. We deliberately look for towns that have something unique, or some vibe of which they are proud, explore them and enjoy what they have to offer.”

Like last year, the outdoor events will take place in carefully selected and unique locations across the United States and Canada following a stop in the UK, and will feature a host of internationally acclaimed acts including Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Alabama Shakes, fun., The Vaccines, and many more to be announced. This year’s host towns include Simcoe, Ontario, Troy, OH; Guthrie, OK; and St. Augustine, FL. In 2012, the band curated seven total GOTR Stopovers: four in the United States, two in the UK, and one in Australia.

 

Tickets to the Stopovers go on sale at 11 am local time on February 8th. The tickets are $109, and will have no additional service fees or hidden charges. Each ticket will include a beautifully-designed, commemorative Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Passport. Campsites are incorporated into each Stopover site, and camping has become an essential part of the Stopover experience and is strongly encouraged. Three-night camping passes begin at $40 per person and can be purchased along with tickets at gentlemenoftheroad.com. For full details, see below.

Heidi presents Jackathon out July 25th on Get Physical

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2011 by E.N.

“In the beginning there was Jack and Jack had a groove, and from this groove came the groove of all grooves… And house music was born. House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body. And in this house the keeper is Jack.” Until he met Heidi…

The first lady of BBC Radio 1 and major female force of dance music, Heidi, is inviting you to move your body, and when she asks there’s not many that can refuse. Introduced personally by one of the kings of house music, Derrick Carter, Heidi presents the Jackathon is a rollercoaster ride full of raw funk, shaking out those grooves until you can’t stop moving and leaving no question as to who is the true queen of jack.

Heidi´s Jackathon parties started October 2010 as a concept to bring some new life into the dancefloor. She invited some of her favourite artists and friends to play alongside her and to make the crowds bounce in Berlin and then London. Now the Jackathon holds residencies in both cities, as well as Paris, Manchester and Amsterdam, and it has brought the jack to many cities around the world.

The Jackathon is about energy and feeling and expressing something that lurks deep in the soul. The events have become a phenomenon due to their loose musical philosophy and family feel. Heidi felt now is the time to encapsulate its message and share it with the world. Keeping it in the family spirit, Heidi took The Jackathon compilation to her original home label, Get Physical, and asked 16 of her closest peers and artists she admires to produce a track specifically for the compilation. Juan MacLean, Jamie Jones, Soul Clap, Solomun, Deetron, Anja Schneider & And.id, label mates DJ T and many more stepped up to the challenge.

The result is an invigorating journey into the roots of music culture it is influenced by the schools of 90´s new york style hip hop and house (Juan MacLean ‘Love in Tatters’), funk (Soul Clap ‘Incoming Bitch’), acid (DJ T feat Nick Maurer ‘High’) and explores new realms for jacking music (Steve Bug ‘Jack Is Back’). Referencing where it all began in the infamous lyrics of Fingers Inc, The Jackathon takes us through the ages and features original vocal drops made for the mix by the one and only Derrick Carter, who has been a major inspiration to Heidi a one of the main for her loving house music so much.

“I asked 16 artists that I admire to make an exclusive track for me as a little gift to the people who have supported what I do – some known, some unknown. It was also a gift to me, as I had no idea what these artists were going to make me. The result was more than I could have wished for. All of the tracks are totally different from each other and super fresh, which is what I wanted and keeps with the theme of the night. Diversity and change are always welcome.” Heidi on The Jackathon 2011.

Originally hailing from Ontario, Canada, Heidi moved to London in 2000 and was one of the creators of Phonica Records, known to many DJs as the best record store in the world. She became part of the Get Physical family in their glory years and is one of a handful of non-British presenters asked to host her own show on the prestigious BBC Radio 1. Since the show started in 2008, her forward thinking nature has continually shone through and she has broken artists such as Wolf + Lamb, Seth Troxler, Art Department, Jamie Jones, Nicolas Jaar first on the airwaves.

“Heidi at Sunday School was one of the best DJ sets I´ve ever seen. The woman plays with honesty and love.”  Nicolas Jaar, 2011.

Heidi has always been really supportive of my productions and my Hot Natured label series from the start. She’s a cool girl and I’m super happy to be involved in the next stage of  the Jackathon.” Jamie Jones, 2011.

A female icon, Heidi is often the unsung hero of her tribe. Hers is one of the only mainstream radio shows consistently championing the sounds of the current house and techno underground movement and she is personally resurrecting the music of the early Chicago masters. With a foot in the past but an eye on the future, Heidi masters the funk and redefines the jack in Jackathon.

Nervous Records Presents…S​ydney Blu – “Live From Mansion”+free download

Sydney Blu
Live From Mansion
Nervous Records
June 7, 2011

On June 7, Nervous Records presents the debut CD from rising DJ/Producer/Remixer Sydney Blu. Titled, Live From Mansion, this release showcases Sydney’s DJ skills and ability to work a big club, but also leans heavily on her talents behind the boards as a producer and remixer. In fact, the compilation contains nearly 80% of Sydney’s own original productions and remixes.

Download Want Sombody – Sydney Blu & Christian Falero (Original Cover Mix )

A native of Thunder Bay, Canada, Sydney Blu went to school for audio engineering in Toronto where she spent countless hours learning the craft from studio engineers. After teaching herself Ableton Live and spending a lot of time with her producer friends like Trent Cantrelle, Christian Falero, Funkagenda, & Joel Zimmerman (AKA Deadmau5), she has completely dove into producing her own music.

Following the success of her releases (including the chart-topping ‘Give It Up For Me’ on Mau5trap Recordings being one of Beatport’s highest selling songs and making Sydney the only female electronic producer to ever have a top 10 hit on the website), Sydney Blu developed and founded her own record label Blu Music, which has produced several chart-topping singles over the past year, with her remixes of the True Blood theme ‘Bad Blood’ and a re-edit of Jefferson Airplane titled ‘Want Somebody’ topping the charts for weeks. All of Sydney’s releases received consistent support from global heavyweights such as Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk, Deadmau5, Roger Sanchez, Paul Oakenfold, Funkagenda, Robbie Rivera, Chuckie, Oscar G & more.

After moving to Miami in the spring of 2010, Sydney quickly set-up her residency with Opium Group and Mansion Miami – the hottest club on South Beach. In just one year Sydney’s local profile raised tremendously and culminated with her own sold out Miami Music Week 2011 “Blu Party” featuring John Dahlback, Thomas Gold, Tommy Lee and Aero feat SOFI live, Kim Fai, Trent Cantrelle, Christian Falero & Manufactured Superstars. Watch the recap

Her new home in Miami provides the backdrop for a truly exciting moment in Sydney’s career – her first artist CD – Live From Mansion. While the mix was recorded live over the course of one evening at Mansion, the project took nearly a year to complete. That’s because Sydney wanted to create a CD that was leaned heavily on her own brand new original tracks and remixes. “Its 80% my own music and it feels SO good to be finally releasing it all. Remixes, Collaborations and Original work – it’s all there. The album is representative of me as a producer, a DJ, and my signature sound all in one,” Sydney says.

2011 is already proving to be busy with original tracks and remixes set for release on Spinnin Records, Vicious Records, Funkfarm Records and Juicy Records, all leading up to the release of ‘Sydney Blu: Live at Mansion’. Catch Sydney on the road throughout the summer!

Sydney Blu – Live From Mansion is released June 7, 2011 on Nervous records.

Delhi 2 Dublin – Planet Electric +free download SOS,Tour…

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 25, 2011 by E.N.


(US Release Date: March 1, 2011)

The Band’s New Album Goes Full Charge Into An Energetic Mash-Up Of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae And Electronic Beats

 Hour Magazine wrote that “Delhi 2 Dublin is the United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”. They are a Vancouver, Canada based band that plays an energetic mash-up of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica with global rhythms and club beats. Tarun Nayar, Sanjay Seran, Andrew Kim and Ravi Binning along with new members Jaron Freeman-Fox and Sara Fitzpatrick are diverse in both their backgrounds and musical influences. The band has been together over four years and has released three albums including its latest, Planet Electric. The album title is apt because the six musicians feel that they plug directly into the world’s music and energy. The icing on the cake was mixing the album with noted UK producer Diamond “DJ Swami” Duggal (Apache Indian/Maxi Priest/Nusrat Fateh Ali).

Download :Delhi 2 Dublin -SOS

A live collaboration put together in 2006 as a one-off performance piece for a club night in Vancouver called Delhi to Dublin was so well-received that requests for additional performances led to the official formation of Delhi 2 Dublin. “Not being able to fit into any specific genre allows the band to create whatever we like and not be judged for it. Our audience expects nothing less.” The band finds this advantageous for their live show as it enables them to create a flow to their sets much like a DJ would for the dance floor. “Audiences love to see a band transcending stereotypes and letting the music speak for itself”.

The Delhi 2 Dublin crew is constantly touring. The strong word-of-mouth on their live performances has enabled them to build a loyal and continent wide fan base. The band has played several of the top festivals in Canada and the U.S. and, in 2011, is expanding its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. In addition, on March 1st, they will be releasing Planet Electric in the U.S. A new line-up, a new album and new international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience. They have become one of Canada’s most buzzed-about bands and 2011will only see them enhancing that reputation.
