Hard Summer Announces Lineup and Jack U’s new Fruit Medley

Lineup

Destructo and his two-day Hard Summer massive have release lineup details and it’s a bomb. The Los-Angeles based festival has outgrown it’s spot in downtown, moving to a nearby open recreation area fit for a rave. Boasting 5 stages and 90 artists, Hard events are always perfectly booked with our favourite producers. Known for the cult following of Holy Shippers, Gary has even brought his new friend Tiesto along for this year’s event.

In true Hard fashion, the usual suspects made a hilarious intro video for party. Including grannies, fruit medleys, and original gangstas. Mastermind behind it all, Destructo aka Gary Richards started out hosting Sunday events in LA Djing ‘The Sermon while dressed in robes. As a true LA Funky producer and one of the most sought after tastemakers in dance, Destructo’s parties top the list for us.

Grab tickets now as this one will most definitely sell out.

Attention Sailors: Holy Ship! 2015 Ticket Insanity

HolyShip

Ahoy! Believe it or not sailors but although months away (10 to be precise), the Holy Ship pre-book tickets have sold out within days. As quickly as it finished, the hype has built up again yet this time even bigger and better with the HARD event testing out its first expansion to a two-weekend party similar to that of Coachella, Glastonbury and Ultra.

The high seas debauchery will set sail from Miami on January 3rd and February 25th, taking the Ship crew to the Bahamas and back. With a boat-load of acts last year – including Diplo, Dillon Francis, What So Not, Disclosure, Ryan Hemsworth, Boys Noize, Amine Edge & Dance etc etc – the event has become a do-not-miss as there has yet to be a leak of who to expect for 2015. However, it goes without saying that attendees will be gifted with the best of the best.

So in the mean time for all you aqua-holics out there check out the official 2014 recap video and the 5 biggest moments of Holy Ship 2014 to get those F.O.M.O juices flowing, and once you realise you do not want to miss out on nabbing tickets you still have a chance by signing up here to the waiting list.

Yeahhh buoy!!

[Download] Amtrac – Don’t Know (feat. Posso)

artworks-000073478640-5f5bbv-t500x500

What better way to coast into the weekend than a free download from longtime GDD favorite Amtrac. Last year was a bit of a breakthrough year for him as he was asked to provide tour support for Kaskade, and also found himself on some pretty awesome HARD lineups. This newest track he just dropped called Don’t Know, which also features the help of the Posso babes, is some terrific fuel to fire you up for the hotter months ahead. Warm keys, jacking drums and catchy vocal chops make this another weapon from the Amtrac arsenal. If you’re gonna be in Miami for WMC, he’ll be doing a b2b set with Jack Beats at the OWSLA Good Times party and also throwing weights at the Skrillex & Friends party at Mansion on the 28th.
