Bingo Players host “Bingo Beach” at Governors Club NYC On Saturday June 18

As if you needed another excuse to day party on a summer Saturday, Bingo Players just announced their massive “Bingo Beach” event at Governors Club on June 18. Bingo Players will be joined by friends Quintino, Jenaux, Cheat Codes, and special guests Bassjackers for an epic electro-house takeover that will last well into the night.

With such a stellar lineup, one thing is for sure–this won’t be your grandmother’s Bingo. For a limited time only, super early bird tickets are just $25. Buy tickets here.

Bingo Players first broke through in 2011 with their hit “Cry (Just a Little),” and the Dutch duo quickly became regulars on the American festival and club circuit. Their energetic sound captivated audiences around the world with bouncy synths, driving beats, and guitar-like riffs, and hits like “Rattle” solidified their place as international superstars.

Tragedy stuck the duo when Paul was diagnosed with cancer in June 2013 and passed away in October of that year, devastating both Maarten and the entire dance community.

Maarten has continued the Bingo Players legacy in memory of his partner, and now teams up with the charity Fuck Cancer to support the prevention and early detection of the devastating disease. Fuck Cancer aims to change the way people talk about cancer and inspire a movement by harnessing the experiences of Generation C–consumers from all generations who use digital content as their main source of information.

Through digital media, programs and events, Fuck Cancer believes its community will be the generation that ultimately improves health outcomes. To support Fuck Cancer or to learn more,   visit LetsFCancer.com or follow @letsfcancer.


Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Mark Ronson, The 1975 To Headline “We The Fest”

On the 13th and 14th August 2016, WE THE FEST opens the doors to Indonesia’s vibrant party capital, Jakarta, for a truly unparalleled immersive musical experience. A spectacular celebration of music, arts, fashion and food, boasting a lineup brimming with some of the hottest contemporary talents across the pop, rock, indie and electronic spectrum, WTF is the party to be seen at this summer and is an undisputed jewel in the crown of South East Asia’s burgeoning party calendar.

Headlining the festival this year, at Parkir Timur Senayan, Jakarta, are none other than Grammy award-winning pair, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who have chosen WTF as the fitting finale to their mammoth 2016 world tour. Soaring to prominence with chart-topping records including ‘Thrift Shop’ and ‘Can’t Hold Us’, Macklemore has since established himself as one of pop music’s biggest modern icons.

Fellow hit-making machine and mastermind behind the ‘Uptown Funk’ phenomenon, Mark Ronson, will also be on headline duties, bringing one of his famed genre-defying DJ sets to the backdrop of Indonesia’s most vibrant city. Last, but by no means least, alternative British rock outfit The 1975 will be taking to the coveted WTF Main Stage, as they too look to provide fans with a headline performance to savour in the memory.

The Temper Trap and Hayden James give even further depth and diversity to the already eclectic lineup, as do French ‘nu-disco’ pioneer Breakbot, Canadian synth-pop duo Purity Ring and Dutch “deep house superstar” (Billboard) Sam Feldt. Making her Indonesian debut is London-based singer-songwriter George Maple, whose collaborations with the likes of What So Not and Flume have made her an outstanding addition to this year’s event.

Australian producer Ta-ku, whose down-tempo re-imaginings of tracks from Maple, Justin Timberlake and Flume, is another must-see act on what is undoubtedly WTF’s strongest billing to date.

For the full lineup so far, head to wethefest.com and stay tuned for more acts, due to be announced soon.

Weekend tickets, starting at $54, are available now here. See below for full details, or head to wethefest.com

A labour of love since its inception two years ago, WTF has rapidly expanded from a local one-day event into a groundbreaking two-day extravaganza, welcoming attendees from every corner of the globe. A hotbed of international and homegrown musical talent, the event is also renowned for welcoming figureheads from across the cultural spectrum.

In 2015, Australia’s ‘Masterchef’ George Calombaris served up his award-winning Greek dishes to hungry punters, while magician, comedian and stunt man Wes Barker enthralled the crowds with his unique combination of stand-up comedy and magic.

This year, festival-goers will also be able to follow the latest trends from top brands and bloggers in the fashion area, absorb themselves in the art installations and graffiti around the site, brush up their skills in workshops in the artist village, or simply kick back and indulge in some of the delectable dishes that the Ismaya Food Town has to offer.

A cultural oasis in the midst of the bustling capital, whether it’s a family day out or a chance to party with friends, WTF offers up a diverse array of unrivalled immersive experiences for all ages to partake and enjoy.

Global Underground Releases Limited Edition Collectors Edition Box Set Of #GU25 – Deep Dish – Toronto

Iconic dance music label Global Underground announces that on July 1st it will be releasing an Exclusive Limited Edition “Collectors Edition” box set of the US Billboard #1 album, – GU025 Deep Dish, Toronto.

Included in the package will be a stunning 116 page hard back Toronto Travelogue Book, Limited Edition GU Postcards, GU Luggage Tag and a 24 page “Book Pack” Deluxe Version of the CD all housed in a beautiful bespoke red GU Box.

The Travelogue comes with an exclusive foreword from writer Dom Phillips and is crammed full of photographer Dean Belcher’s iconic images of Deep Dish themselves, the city of Toronto, and of course the legendary night at The Guvernment club back in December 2002 – a large amount of the photos used are exclusive to the book and have never been seen before.

The album will also be made available on Deluxe CD format and for download at all digital stores such as iTunes and Beatport.

IT’S been 16 years since Deep Dish’s Toronto mix first came out. Now re-released in this commemorative set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Global Underground, it still sounds timeless.

But Deep Dish/Toronto is more than a classic mix. It’s also a portrait of a moment in time, when Toronto’s nightlife was ruled by a 5,000-capacity, multi-roomed super-club called Guvernment – a futuristic music factory that dominated a desolate stretch of waterfront now booming with redevelopment. It also had a live venue alongside, the Kool Haus and big raves linked both venues together.

The complex became a landmark in Toronto – not just physically, but culturally as well. The Rolling Stones played there. Daft Punk and Macy Gray played there. Deadmau5 made his name there. Sasha and Digweed played there.

This collection represents one of the most consistently creative teams in electronic music at the peak of their powers. CD1’s sinuous grooves snake through liquid rhythms and occasional sultry vocals. CD2 raises the stakes with tougher beats, echoed vocals and big-room melodramatics.

But the sound is just part of it. Just as they caught the energy and life of the party, Dean Belcher’s vivid photos, full of life, light and colours, also captured the city, especially the Queens Quay port area, at a moment in time.

Deep Dish. Toronto. Stay gold.

Jacky Launches Free Event Series – Jacky & Friends – At Sankeys Manchester


Sat 16th July: Santé // Fri 26th August: Sidney Charles // Sun 18th September: Cera Alba // Sat 15th October: TBA // Fri 25th November: TBA // Fri 16th December: TBA

Breakthrough DJ and producer Jacky brings his high energy DJ sets and big room sound back to Sankeys Manchester for a six date, free event series – Jacky & Friends – featuring a plethora of house and techno heavyweight guests.

Having already made a name for himself as one of 2016’s biggest breakout artists, Jacky has consistently pushed boundaries with his big room house sound at a succession of top line venues throughout Europe.

Adding to the string of huge releases on some of house and techno’s most sought after imprints – including Elrow and Roush – Jacky has firmly cemented himself as an artist to sit up and take note of.

Now, after catching the eye of Sankeys top dogs during his last sell out event at the venue, Jacky is set to launch his first club night ‘Jacky & Friends’ a completely free residency at the Manchester institution. Breaking ground on Saturday 16th July, Jacky launches the series alongside AVOTRE label boss and long term sonic sparring partner Santé, for what is set to be a night of big beats and even bigger vibes.

The following month AVOTRE label regular Sidney Charles makes his way to Manchester on Friday 25th August to join Jacky for a set full of the chunky techno and huge jackin beats that have made the German powerhouse one of the underground’s biggest DJ/producers.

Next up is fellow breakthrough act Cera Alba, who joins Jacky on Sunday 18th September to tear the roof off the old soap factory. Having risen through the ranks of Europe’s underground house scene, Cera Alba has wasted no time in making his mark on the industry and comes as a welcome addition to the Jacky & Friends line up.

With an already stellar line up and three more dates still to be announced, Jacky & Friends is on course to become one of Manchester’s most exciting club nights.
