This Summmer our boy Gramatik will be throwing down at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater just outside Denver Colorado with massive support from Mr. Carmack, Ekali, and Flamingosis! We’ve been waiting to make our way over to the legendary amphitheater and can’t imagine a better, more fun lineup to experience it with. This eclectic group is going to set fire to the rocks in June. Do not sleep on this.

Real ft. James Taugher – Niko Brahman (Prod. by Flamingosis)

Seven Lions has always been at the forefront of ethereal synths, using powerful drums to create his own breed of heavenly dubstep. The kind of stuff that has you closing your eyes and being fully immersed in the sound waves. His massive tour makes way to not one, but TWO nights in Oakland this weekend. The new collab “Rush Over Me” below, is a testament to his style and what to expect at one of his shows.

Symbiosis Gathering | Lineup | Tickets

 

Symbiosis Site Maps and Schedules have been released! We’re just a week out and the anticipation is palpable. With freak gear and dance spirit at the ready, all that’s left is to set up a nice tentative schedule to be completely ignored once on-site. But hey, getting your hopes up is all part of the experience.

 

Despite all the unforeseen adventures you might find yourself in, here are a few undercard artists, workshops, and speakers we highly advise you pencil in. One other piece of advice: stay up past 3am. In true BM fashion, the best acts come on as the sun rises.

 

Music
Mira
Mira hails from one of Berlin’s best labels, Katermukke. She’s joined by quite a few other label mates too, so keep an ear out for them too (Nico Stojan is top notch).

Mira x Christopher Schwarzwalder – Ayun

 

Perfect Stranger
Remember Hackers? or Wipeout XL? Perfect Stranger is like that; driving prog-psy.

Liftshift – Tunnelvision (Perfect Stranger Remix)

 

Nicola Cruz
Nicola Cruz brings an Ecuadorian electronica touch with him wherever he goes. And he goes all over the world. His expansive sound is uniqueness on the levels of Nico.

Matanza – Existencia (Nicola Cruz Remix)

 

The Range
The Range‘s newest album, Potential was built all on computer. Hard to tell though cause the emotion is rife.

The Range – Five Four

 

Oh Wonder
While having fun is always a prerogative at these things, sometimes emotional release is exactly what makes it that much more fun. Oh Wonder has that covered.

Oh Wonder – Drive

 

Workshops, Speakers & Luminaries
Check out any and all of these that might strike a chord or pique your fancy. Remember: our duty is to leave the world in a better place while still enjoying all life has to offer. Symbiosis presents the perfect environment to learn how to do both.

 

—If you’re going early—

Day splits are here! While TIMF boasts the most wonderful feature of staggered set times so attendees never have to miss an act, there’s still much else to do by way of exploring or silent disco-ing. That said, we highly recommend you find a good spot for the following acts. Also, remember to bring a jacket or a thick beer coat – it gets windy past sundown.

 

Saturday – 10|15
It’s been wonderful seeing HONNE evolve into the silky smooth love struck duo they are today.

HONNE x Izzy Bizu – Someone That Loves You

 

Having seen Mura Masa once before in an intimate setting, we can definitely recommend you catch hold and flow with his passionate beats surrounded by island rays.

Mura Masa ft. Nao – Firefly

 

Sunday – 10|16
We’ve given the girls of HINDS (fka. Deers) so much attention – and for good reason. They’re spunky and they put on a damn good show.

HINDS – Bamboo

 

Perhaps the only artist truly suited for TIMF, Tycho‘s brand of chilled electronic instrumentals mixed with the crisp sea breeze and sunshine is reason enough to attend.

Tycho – Division

Tickets

 

For the past three years, perhaps no other name has seen as fruitful a rise into LA’s underground than the team at Minimal Effort. What began as a weekday party out of a small bar off Cahuenga has evolved to what comes to pass on October 29, 2016. To celebrate All Hallow’s Eve, Minimal Effort rolls out the black carpet at LA Center Studios for a soirée led by some of the heralds of today’s house and techno scene.

 

Taste Maker Pete Tong, Pleasure Pusher Tiga, Crate Digger TEED (DJ Set), Soul Minimalist Satori, and more will spend the day shaping sounds as we celebrate our loved ones – both living and supernatural. Remember: assume whichever role you so wish, but be sure to wear it strongly. We’ll see you in the darkness.

Symbiosis Gathering | Lineup | Tickets

 

After last year’s incredible experience, we’ve been hard pressed to find anything else quite like Symbiosis Gathering. It is perhaps the most relaxing and open culture we’ve ever been a part of. Lend it to the playa decompression vibes or end of summer last hoo-rah or what have you; it will always hold a special place in our hearts. And with 2016 being the last time it’s being hosted at the Woodward Reservoir (please let there be an ample swimming hole at the next venue!), there’s little in the way of deciding whether to go or not. That is to say, DO NOT MISS IT.

Today, Alex Ridha aka BOYS NOIZE announces a 15-date North-American tour. The trek starts on October 5th on the West Coast in Los Angeles and will go via Vancouver and Seattle to playing two nights in New York, followed by Miami, Boston, Suwannee Hulaween in Florida and ends with Austin’s Sound on Sound (ex-Fun Fun Fun Fest). The tickets are available Thursday, August 11th href=”http://www.boysnoize.com/#!tour/ofgvv”>HERE.

 

This tour comes Hot off the heels of Alex’s most recent album release, Mayday. Mayday is Boys Noize´s most dynamic album to date. Collaborations with Poliça, Hudson Mohawke, Benga, Remy Banks, Spank Rock, and some special secret guests broaden the range while maintaining the classic rugged-n-raw BOYS NOIZE style. You can check out our review of MAYDAY href=”http://www.controlaltdelight.com/?s=boys+noize”>here. **Spoiler Alert** We fucking loved it!

 

We are really excited for this tour as Alex is one of our favorites DJ’s in the electronic landscape today. His live shows surely will not be ones to miss as Boys Noize stage production and visuals are always top notch. SUS BOY and LIL INTERNET provide to aesthetics exploring a thematic narrative inspired by cyberpunk, 80’s industrial and surveillance in contemporary society.
