Dragon & Jontron Release “Blackout” + Skylab Ticket Giveaway

Created as the official anthem for SKYLAB 2012 and featured in the event trailer, “Blackout” is the ideal soundtrack for a dance floor mission bathed in black light. This latest offering from DJ/producer duo Dragon & Jontron sets the tone for the latest installment of the massive space-themed party, preparing revelers for a thrilling adventure flooded with aliens, astronauts and creatures of the night. When the massive electro synths grab hold, one can’t help but imagine thousands of crazed, black-clad partiers bouncing up and down in a state of rhythmic insanity. Both are residents of Beta Nightclub – one of the nation’s premiere destination spots for electronic dance music and 2011’s No. 1 Club in North America. Playing a combination of progressive, electro and that special Dragon & Jontron sound, they’ve managed to successfully fuse their talents in the studio with a keen ability to rock a dance floor.

Countdown To Launch: Skylab 2012

Fresh off the success of Global Dance Festival, Triad Dragons are partnering with the world-famous Beta Nightclub for the space-themed party that has become Denver’s largest indoor dance music event. SKYLAB 2012 is launching into the darkest depths of space and imagination with this year’s theme – Mission Blackout. The event will be held at the Denver Coliseum, the perfect venue for a pitch black party as fans are allowed to roam throughout the stadium seating and climb multiple levels to view the show from virtually 360 degrees.  Attendees are encouraged to embrace the darkness and come dressed as creatures of the night. This event was one of the highlights of my year and I advise everyone to start planning their launch into darkness!

Headlining the 18th annual SKYLAB is Porter Robinson, who at only 20 years old is recognize as one of the most talented producer/DJs in the game. Also gracing the stage is trance favorite Gareth Emery and Zedd – one of Germany’s hottest exports – who is kicking off his back to back tour with Porter later that week. And it couldn’t be a Colorado party without a handful of dubstep mavericks including Andy CDownlink, and the one and only Borgore! Local superstars Dragon, Ecotek, Jontron, Fury, Trajikk, and Kevin Alves will also perform. More acts across three stages will be announced in the coming weeks. And be sure to keep on the lookout for a ticket giveaway in the near future!

Doors open at 7 p.m. General admission and VIP tickets are now available.

Survival Sunday: Skylab Recap and Tracks from Dada Life, SHM/Knife Party, Calvin Harris and More

Wow. Well, I gotta be honest, Triad Dragons put on one hell of a show last night. For those of you that don’t know what Skylab is or were unfortunately unable to attend, this annual Denver rave is a certified mini-festival which has played host to such names as Wolfgang Gartner, Ferry Corsten and more over the past several years. This year, they went bigger and better than ever by booking BT, Fedde LeGrand, Cazzette, Avicii, and Dash Berlin among others and hosting it in the massive Denver Coliseum. When we first walked into the venue, the scene was overwhelming. Everyone seemed to have something glowing on them and, even early on, people were FUCKED up and ready to party. The amount of amazing lasers they had on the spaceship-esque stage was unlike any display I’d ever seen before. I had not been expecting that at all. Even the NRG Fuel Pod stage (where Cazzette played) was simply mind-blowing.

As for the music, we saw part of BT’s set when we came in and I can see why I’ve been hearing so much about how amazing his live shows are. Then Cazzette threw down a great set featuring quite a bit of Swedish house and their originals, bringing their unique electro sound to the crowd. I was also fortunate to catch some of Fedde LeGrand and he surprised me with his really upbeat and engaging set. Moving on, Avicii was definitely the highlight of the night. After seeing him at Identity and being disappointed by his DJing and his track selection, I had low expectations despite his undeniable talent as a producer. However, it was like seeing a whole different animal. He had the crowd so entranced by his entire set and the love was mutual. After that, we caught Dash Berlin wrap up on the main stage which dipped between trance, house, and dubstep and left me very confused. Definitely brought his talent to the stage but the abrupt changes in music styles seemed very dissonant and not appropriate for the crowd or the time but still have to admit I thoroughly enjoyed singing and dancing to his edit of Above and Beyond’s “Sun and Moon”. To wrap it up, I must say that the production value of the entire show/festival was way better than I expected and Triad Dragons certainly have earned their reputation rightfully… I can’t wait to attend their next event.

Now to get into some tracks from this week. First, Dada Life, who can’t seem to stop killing it in everything they do, released the next chapter in their Guerrilla Fart series (don’t ask) which is their take on David Guetta’s newest single of his latest album Nothing But The Beat. Sausage fattener treatment always wins! [Thanks to GDD™ for the track]

David Guetta – Little Bad Girl (Dada Life’s Guerrilla Fart #13 Remix)

Second, Calvin Harris teamed up with Rhianna to produce this pop-house track and its already found its way into the iTunes Top 10 (anything with Rhianna’s name on it probably automatically makes it there). I have always been a hater for Rhianna’s voice but it pairs nicely with this track. Definitely pretty poppy but it’s Calvin Harris, what can you expect?

Calvin Harris & Rhianna – We Found Love (Original Mix)

Next, something completely different for you. Skream comes out with THE most chilling dub remix I’ve heard in a long time. Tell me this shit doesn’t give you goosebumps. To be honest, this song really deserved its own post but I couldn’t wait any longer to share it with you.

Alex Clare – Up All Night (Skream’s Behind Closed Doors Remix)

Finally, and if you were smart you would’ve picked up on this one in the SHM Essential Selection post, the track that we heard SHM and Knife Party were collaborating on finally previewed this week. Kind of expected it to be a little better but still epic. Knife Party always brings the heat.
