As if you needed another reason to get your slacker self a last minute ticket (#goodluck,#slimchance,#please) to Coachella, a certain groove train by the name of Modeselektor will be doing horrible things to those in attendence at the Mojave stage at 9:45. If you can’t make it, the Lucidity Festival still has a few tickets and should provide equal epicness, make it happen!

#Inthebasement. TheBearded Dunkkle, a collaboration project of Beardy and Dunkkle, spent the evening deep in the basement to bring you they first Lightning in a Bottlemixtape of the year! We took a unique approach to our set in that none of the artists are slated to be at LIB, however we found it to encompass the vibe that is there, and anticipate this transporting you to the wonderful land of groovy vibes and wonderful people…welcome home!
Mushroom Jazz is the shiznit! Sure bangers are epic, but we here at AllowThat strongly support the mindset that all electronic music has its place. This techy set is much needed and we thank you, Mark Farina, for keeping things just the way we like it, groovy! Get your DL on!
There is a reason that Booka Shade is on AllowThat’s A-list when it comes to electronic music. Their unique blend of underground electronic vibes and sounds, along with the infusion of jazz, rock, and other musical genres, allows their musical personality to influence the EDM community and certainly explains why Booka Shade was voted one of the world’s Top 5 live acts by Resident Advisor. Snag their latest release and get out and share that groove magic!
Pretty Lights live…one of the most high energy dancefloors around. May not be the electro bangers we all know and love, but there is something about their live sets that just gets everybody infused with that awesome community atmosphere that EDM is known to infect us with. This set is no different and thanks to the fine folks at Press Play Colorado their live set from this past weekend is ready to awaken your ears on this hump day!
“When we become lucid in our dreams, we realize ourselves as infinite potential, we let go of fear, and we are free to create that which we want to see in the world. Bring those visions, those possibilities, and that delicious conscious energy with you to Lucidity and wake up in the dream.”
With all of the awesome, yet similar festivals popping up for the summer scene, choices can get difficult. Luckily for us, amidst the beasts known simply as EDC, Ultra, and Coachella among others emerges the rejuvenating twist to your standard festival, this is the Lucidity Festival. For those of you that recall, Lightning In A Bottle, first began as a small intimate festival in this very same location. The experience and community vibe that is being created around this, could be bigger than the artists and musicians themselves.
With Burning Man tickets essentially gone, and LIB still a distant lover, this could prove to be one of the best decisions you make. Chances are you will come back with more than you left with. Free your mind and experience lucidity!
Ultra Music Festival. If you missed it, well, that is a very unfortunate thing. The big names and headliners absolutely destroyed the main stage all weekend as expected, however it was some of those small fonts on that epic lineup poster that really proved to surprise us. Joris Voorn. You’ve heard the name, and hopefully you caught his Sunday session as he did not disappoint. We got our dirty little hands on his live set, however, the nine hour set he had in Trouw, Amsterdam this past December certainly does him justice and should hold you over as well on your Monday as the day starts to crawl!
Ultra. Need we say more? For those of you not fortunate enough to be getting your faces melted this weekend with just about every big DJ in the world, well, you now can party with all of us! Lock yourself in your parent’s basement with ample amounts of glowsticks and a few of your closest friends, and get your party on! This weekend is about to get silly!
