I have been at Ultra for the past three days…well at least in spirit. UMFTV did a fantastic job of bringing the three day EDM festival to living rooms around the world, all in real time. They highlighted all the best acts including Pretty Lights, Nicky Romero, Afrojack. Fedde le Grand, Martin Solvieg, Fatboy Slim, and Avicii with special guest Madonna. However, I think the highlight for me, sitting in my living room mind you, was Carl Cox playing in the Cocoon Arena, a set he designed himself. Honey comb-shaped screens surrounded the entire set creating a unbelievable light show experience on top of Cox and friends’ progressive anthems. Once the mayhem in Miami dies down, and the rave participants begin sharing their pics and videos on the www, i’ll be sure to share the Cocoon Arena with you.
Here are a couple tracks that got heavy playing time at Ultra by a handful of different DJs. These aren’t new, but after seeing them at Ultra (ha) they will firmly move to my top 10 played over the coming weeks.
Afrojack ft Shermanology – Can’t stop me now (Original Extended Mix)
Knife Party – Internet Friends (Original Mix)
Afrojack – No Beef (Original Mix)
More to come from this historical weekend in Miami.
