Insomniac Shares Beyond Wonderland Lineup For SoCal Return

Insomniac's SoCal edition of Beyond Wonderland is back for a fifth go-around March 20-21 after a one-year hiatus, and they're bringing along Adam Beyer, Knife Party, Maya Jane Coles (pictured above from 2013), and many more to celebrate the homecoming.

Attendees will also get a healthy dose of dance music veterans like Green Velvet, Andy C, Benny Benassi, and Tiesto, rounding out a balanced breakfast of beats from classic to cutting-edge for fans to nom over the two-day event.

After expanding Beyond Wonderland to the Bay Area in 2013, Insomniac announced that it was looking for a new home for its 2014 SoCal version, as they felt they had outgrown the San Manuel Amphitheater and Grounds. The attempted move prevented a 2014 edition of Beyond SoCal, but the San Manuel grounds will welcome the festival back this year and include adjacent camping for the first time ever. Tent and RV camping passes are available for two or three days.

Weekend passes are available for for fans 18 and over starting at $149. View the complete lineup below, and get tickets here.

Afrojack’s ‘Take Over Control’ Gets A Modern Makeover From Sweekuh

As much as you want to pretend like it never happened, we all know that you and your friends threw it down to Afrojack's Take Over Control back in the day. While we don't suggest taking that exact trip down memory lane, Philadelphia-based producer Sweekuh (pictured) has provided us with an updated guilty pleasure trip.

I'll be the first to tell you that the name Afrojack doesn't exactly conjure up positive thoughts (especially as of late), but this remix has me dancing like it's 2010 all over again. Sweekuh pitches vocalist Eva Simons' voice way down, removes the blaring Dutch house horns and migraine-inducing drop, and injects some smooth, inviting bass and Tchami-esque synths to take the "bro" out of the club hit.

‘I Bet My Life’ You Dig This Lost Kings Remix

LA-based duo Lost Kings earns a LessThan3 debut with their official remix of Imagine Dragons' I Bet My Life.

Catchy vocals, a playful melody, and crisp synths are some of the essential ingredients in making an anthem-sized hit, and this has got all those elements and more.

Lost Kings caught the attention of many last year with a handful of solid remixes for artists like Dirty South and Oliver Heldens, but one man, Adam Alpert of Disruptor Management, took a chance on the duo and signed them. With solid releases like this one, Lost Kings are looking like a legitimate talent, and there is no denying that as a duo, they're in great hands with Alpert in their corner... just ask The Chainsmokers.

Grab your copy of the remix on iTunes.

‘All I Want’ Is Illenium’s Dawn Golden Remix

Illenium gives Dawn Golden a melodic trap makeover in his new remix of All I Want.

Deviating from his traditional dubstep tendencies, the Denver-based producer instead creates a hypnotic atmosphere of floating synths and symphonic melodies to surround Dawn Golden’s original vocals and composition. With that being said, the track is not completely devoid of any breaks, with Illenium adding in a number of anthemic progressions to help give the track a little extra boost. The end result is a triumphant and loving journey best shared with that special someone.

Illenium's All I Want remix is currently available to download for free through his SoundCloud page here.

Here Comes The Drop: Your New Favorite Music Discovery Tool

Dance music fans have a new way to sift through the wealth of tunes on SoundCloud and get to those gems faster with The Drop, a Reddit-style platform for sharing and curation.

The founder of Twitch and Justin.TV, Justin Kan, told LessThan3 that the idea arose from his desire to simply find new music on a daily basis. Initially a download-based app concept, Kan later changed his approach to gear more toward today's streaming-focused market.

The Drop runs on the open-source curation platform Telescope using SoundCloud API, much like streaming music on your favorite blog, however offers crowdsourced content surfaced through a voting system. While similar to existing platforms like Hype Machine and the recently Insomniac-absorbed Boomrat, The Drop is moderated track-by-track, and culls data direct from users as opposed to a selection of blogs.
