To have so many fans vying to get on the guestlist so early, is absolutely unheard of and is testament to the love and loyalty that that Indian fans have for Hardwell. After the overwhelming success of the previous World’s Biggest Guestlist event held in December of 2015, this years ‘United We Are’ has already cemented itself as one of 2017’s most talked about electronic music events. You’ll have to be quick however if you’d like to get yourself on the World’s Biggest Guestlist as the deadline for phase 1 registration is set to slam shut on Monday 14 August 2017, 5pm CET.

In cooperation with Shailendra Singh’s GuestList4Good and Hardwell’s United We Are Foundation, Hardwell will be taking over the third day of the World’s Biggest Guestlist Festival (WBGF). Closed by Hardwell on Sunday, Dec 3, the festival will accommodate for sports, live Bollywood and pop music. As the first and only headliner announced for the festival this far, all 125,000 registrations are for the charitable Dutch DJ.

Speaking about the event, Hardwell said: “It’s overwhelming to see that over 125,000 have already registered for the event in Mumbai. The WBGF really does hold the key to the future for so many young children throughout India and once again we are striving forward to achieve our goal of providing for the education of 100,000 underprivileged children through the Magic Bus programme.”

Monki announces new Monki & Friends EP featuring Denis Sulta, Melé, Hammer and more.

Having evolved to a sound stepped in house and techno, Monki continues to be an underground tastemaker known for championing electronic talent, having recently hosted the likes of Skream, Carl Cox, and Solardo on her BBC Radio 1 show. The British DJ and founder of digital imprint, Zoo Music, returns with her fifth ‘Monki & Friends’ EP featuring tracks from the likes of Denis Sulta, Melé, Hammer, Lauren Lo Sung and more.

The EP, released on Friday 18th August, was recorded entirely at Red Bull Studios London, and will be launched with a free Red Bull Studios presents Monki & Friends EP Launch Party on Thursday 17th August at POP Brixton. The event will feature several special guests from the EP playing alongside Monki, including pioneering British duo Altern8. The first 100 DICE users that attend on the night will receive a free drink.

Billy Turner & Isaac Reuben’s ‘Your Mistake’ takes on initial dark and brooding tones, before the menacing tech build-up gives way to a strong bassline. The production that precedes it demonstrates the diversity of the Monki & Friends EP, Kalyde & Monki’s ‘Club 75’. Having enjoyed a long career as a DJ and radio host, ‘Club 75’ represents Monki’s first official production and delivers with a bouncing bassline and real house and disco flavour.

Lauren Lo Sung and Citizenn team up to create ‘Breathe’, a chilled production laced with building rumbles as the track progresses, before Prok & Fitch + Pawsa deliver a thumping floorfiller with ‘Feel It.’ With deep dark juddering mechanical sounds adding a real underground vibe to the breakdown, menacing horns are interjected by the vocal sample of Mr. Fingers’ classic Chicago house anthem of the same name.

Denis Sulta & Hammer’s ‘Phinger Scrossed’ contributes depth and diversity to the EP. Created over the course of three days in the Red Bull Studios Berlin, this stand out collaboration from two of house and techno’s rising stars is a statement of intent from the in-demand duo. An explosive production that utilises one of Sulta’s trademark intense and progressive builds, ‘Phinger Scrossed’ then launches into old school hardcore breaks and heavy basslines.

With Jesse Perez x Kiwi’s groove led ‘Intercontinental Express,’ soaked in Samba-style hooks, then Melé & Altern8’s cosmic sounding ‘Acid Bang’ completing the EP with vintage reverberated acid synths, the fifth instalment of the Monki & Friends EP promises to be the most successful release so far.

Fresh off the back of her highly successful ‘The Warning’ UK tour, in which Monki played several locations, including Fabric London, and Junk Southampton, this EP comes in the midst of a busy summer for the DJ in which she has played stand out shows at Glastonbury, Parklife, Hideout and more.
