Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, SvD, More Confirmed For Burning Man 2014

Burning Man isn't about lineups. You don't go there just to see your favorite artists. However, music is still a huge part of the annual 60,000 person art experiment. Everywhere you go at night at Black Rock City, you'll see DJs spinning on art cars, in nightclubs, and massive festival-style stages on the playa.

Today we found out that the rumors were true about the epic lineup for the White Ocean sound camp events, curated by Paul Oakenfold and Timur Sardarov. Each day will be dedicated to a different genre of electronic music, with some serious talent to boot. Some of the most surprising names to see include Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, Sander van Doorn, Chris Liebing, Astrix, and Fehrplay (see full lineup below).

Additionally, White Ocean posted a photo on their Facebook page of the stage design they are building, which looks to be fully equipped with massive flamethrowers and pyrotechnics (see below). We'll see you there!

PREMIERE: OceanLab – Satellite (Ilan Bluestone Remix) [Anjunabeats]

The highly anticipated Anjunabeats Volume 11 is almost upon us, and we're pleased to present the exclusive first play of a brand new remix from the compilation: Ilan Bluestone's take on the classic OceanLab track Satellite.

OceanLab, the collaboration between Above & Beyond and vocalist Justine Suissa, was at its height when Satellite was released a decade ago, and Ilan Bluestone had a challenge on his hands in bringing it up to date. It's something he seems to have managed admirably, with a darker, grittier take on the original that combines elements of trance and big room house in a style that Ilan has made his own. A totally new chord sequence and melody lends a very different feel to the vocal, yet it works effortlessly, the dreamy vowels of Justine still causing shivers a decade later.

Anjunabeats Volume 11 is out on June 9, and is available to pre-order now. Check out the official trailer below:

Above & Beyond Gets ‘Sticky Fingers’

Of the several Above & Beyond tracks first revealed at ABGT050, Sticky Fingers has been perhaps the most anticipated. With vocals from Above & Beyond Acoustic star Alex Vargas--making his debut on a club track for the trio--Sticky Fingers finally sees a full release with remixes from Lane 8 and Om Unit.

The original is a very techy and almost experimental take on big room house, combined with a lyrical subject that offers some familiarity. Yes, Sticky Fingers is about the end of a relationship, a subject that has almost become a signature for the group, but as always, it manages to avoid sounding clichéd and thanks to the soulful talents of Vargas, it really does strike a chord. The production style has a touch of Andrew Bayer about it, but perhaps the biggest surprise comes from the main drop, as the big riffs hint at Above & Beyond's early work--the sound might have changed, the production might have become more complex and quirky, but those big riffs are still at the forefront.

On the flipside, there's an astoundingly chilled deep house remix from Lane 8 which is simply stunning from start to finish, and the experimental theme continues with an Om Unit production that is about as quirky as it gets.

Sticky Fingers is out now on Anjunabeats and is a clear sign that Above & Beyond is bucking the mainstream trends and sticking with their own route to the top, something that should bode well for the upcoming Anjunabeats Volume 11 compilation, out on June 9.
