Bassnectar Is Throwing A Resort Festival In Mexico with Rezz & Glitch Mob
Bassnectar fans — get ready to travel through time and space for your first-ever tropical family vacation!
Deja Voom is the latest destination festival on our radar, headed up by the man himself. The getaway music event takes place Feb 27 – Mar 2, 2019 at a series of resorts in Riviera Maya, Mexico. From the breathtaking views down to the specially curated lineup, this looks amazing to say the very least.
The lineup boasts sets from many bass heavy acts including Rezz, The Glitch Mob, 12th Planet and more. Plus, pool parties hosted by the like of Dirtybird and 29 Palms. Late night sets and ambient bonus sets are sure to pop off as well. Oh yeah, and there are three distinct sets from Bassnectar himself to look forward to.
“We are extremely excited to present a brand new Bassnectar experience,” a new post on social media details. “Pack your bags and gather your adventure squad: we are going to Mexico for a tropical excursion in one of the most beautiful parts of planet Earth.”
“This is an all-inclusive sleepover at a stunning resort in a famously sublime section of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and breathtaking landscapes. We’ll be setting up a gigantic sound-system right on the beach, and invading the resort for an extended weekend including 3 nights of music, pool parties, exploratory adventures, and late-night throwdowns in our customized nightclubs.”
International destination events like these come with tons of information and options, but get ready to pay a pretty penny if you want in on Deja Voom. The adventure starts here.

Half of SoundCloud Showed Up To 1788-L's CRAZY Debut In LA Last Night [VIDEO]
The past 6 months have been insane for mystery artist 1788-L. Though the debut track from the project was “Replica” in January, it wasn’t until the “Particle Arts” flip that people started taking notice. And it was only a month later that Rezz was playing out an unreleased ID that would later become “HEX” at Ultra Music Festival.
The rise of 1788-L has been nothing but meteoric, but even that was nothing compared to the hype behind the debut live show of the project last night in Los Angeles with Brownies & Lemonade. An insane amount of people RSVP’d for the event which could safely only hold roughly 800 – if they pushed it. RSVPs reopened the day of the event and were closed again just 15 minutes, after presumably hundreds more flooded the submission forms. The line for the event wrapped around the block twice an hour before doors opened.
In attendance at the event were Quix, Luca Lush, Ducky, Boombox Cartel, Ooah from The Glitch Mob, Mr Carmack, Chet Porter, Electric Mantis, Brillz, HVDES, Hex Cougar, Pixel Terror and probably more that just wanted to experience the event.
Take a look at the videos and tweets from the event below.
The Glitch Mob & DJ Snake Each Just Landed Massive #1s
After four years, The Glitch Mob has nabbed another No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart (dated May 19).
See Without Eyes opened with 7,000 album equivalent units, with 6,000 of those being traditional album sales, according to Billboard. The group’s first appearance on this same chart came with their 2010 album Drink the Sea. In total, The Glitch Mob has broken into the Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart five times.
TGM’s Love Death Immortality, which released in March 2014, also hit No. 1. With this top entry, members Justin Boreta (Boreta), Edward Ma (edIT), and Joshua Mayer (Ooah) earn their second No. 1 album and an overall epic return to the dance music scene.
Big chart news for DJ Snake as well, who has earned his first No. 1 hit on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs with “Magenta Riddim.” He has entered the chart five times in the past, first with his Dillon Francis collaboration, “Get Low.” With this new single, he has bested his highest point set by “Lean On” with Major Lazer and MØ.
Listen to See Without Eyes and “Magenta Riddim” to congratulate both The Glitch Mob and DJ Snake on these huge accomplishments!
The Glitch Mob Talk Virtual Reality & Their New Live Show As They Drop Their New Album
Four years since their last album, The Glitch Mob are officially back with their third studio album, See Without Eyes. This new project sees them teaming up with a new group of vocalists and a renewed sense of purpose in the electronic realm.
Spanning eleven tracks, See Without Eyes exposes fans to supremely classic Glitch Mob vibes, courtesy of Boreta, Ooah and edIT. Not counting the singles that have already been released, the album is full of welcome surprises and familiar soundscapes. While it’s not an entirely different or updated Glitch Mob from the one we left in 2014, fans will no doubt be happy to add another batch of releases to their collection.
In anticipation of the release, we sent some questions over to The Glitch Mob about their legacy, working with artists like Elohim, and the fate of their live show, Blade 2.0. Listen to the album and read our interview below.
It’s been four years since your last album, and fan appetite for new material is just as high as ever. What do you think that says to your legacy as artists, and to the quality of music that you create?
We are grateful beyond words to our fans who make this all possible, and we use that connection as fuel to create. It’s one of our goals to make music that stands the test of time, and is from the heart. There’s a lot of cynicism in the air at the moment, and the connectivity that music brings is a way to fight against it.
Where did the title See Without Eyes come from? Is it something about the so-called ‘third eye’ or about heightening your other senses?
Music can express truths far above above and beyond where worlds falter and cease.
What was your experience working with Elohim? She’s an incredible rising star and having her on a track must have been a wonderful privilege.
Elohim is a brilliant musician and the kindest person. We love her. We instantly clicked and knew we were going to make something special. As soon as she sent back the first take we knew it was going to be magic. It’s an honor to create with her.
In producing the album, do you use a lot of the same programs and plug-ins as past releases to keep the sound alike, or are you constantly taking advantage of new innovations and techniques? Or some of both?
We are students in that we are constantly learning new techniques, refining, focusing. There’s a lot of trial and error that goes into it.
What was the decision behind releasing the Rezz remix so soon after the release of the original “I Could Be Anything”? Why not wait until after the album was out?
Rezz heard the tune and wanted to remix it. She works fast and we loved it, so we all decided to grab the moment and put it out. That’s the beauty of owning our own label and collaborating with a forward-thinking artist like her.
What advancements have been made on the Blade live show?
You’ll have to come see to find out. Lots of new stuff…
We’ve also heard rumors of some virtual reality components being involved with the visuals for your shows.
There will be a VR experience powered by The Wave this summer. Stay tuned… it’s insane.
What would be the best compliment you could think of when someone finishes your album?
To feel the comfort of being part of a mystery, like looking at the stars.
The Glitch Mob's Remix for Illenium's "Crawl Out of Love" Is Absolutely Amazing
Having already , tour, and, The Glitch Mob keep the hits coming with a remix truly epic proportions. It’s hard to put into words just how special it is for The Glitch Mob to remix Illenium, so we’d rather not even try, but here we go…
Annika Wells still remains front and center for much the track, as “Crawl Outta Love” wouldn’t be what it is without her expressive voice. That being said, much the original melody is modified and crunched, thrown into the TGM blender and seared on a high heat. What we’re left with is an insanely juicy, perfectly seasoned piece meat, just the smell which makes your mouth water with delight and fantasy…
Find both artists on tour on the dates/locations below.
FIRST LISTEN: The Glitch Mob's Intense New Remix for Illenium Drops Tomorrow
We couldn’t contain our excitement when we The Glitch Mob was about to release a remix for Illenium‘s “Crawl Outta Love!” And we’re completely freaking out now that the world is hearing the first glimpse it!
Both artists involved just shared the same 30-second snippet the track, which sounds amazing but doesn’t give away too much. From the teaser alone, it’s hard to tell where The Glitch Mob is headed with their remix, but it’s clear that “Crawl Outta Love” has been completely transformed.
The smash from Illenium’s latest album Awake is amazing as it is, but with The Glitch Mob behind the new remix we have no doubt it’s going to be a heart-stopping, blood-pumping synth heavy track. Tomorrow we’ll know for sure what The Glitch Mob’s version “Crawl Outta Love” is all about!
P.S. We’re just so happy The Glitch Mob is back!

The Glitch Mob Unleash First Song from Highly Anticipated New Album
After sending out flexi discs to select Mob fans last week, The Glitch Mob have ficially returned with their first new album single since Love Death Immortality in 2014.
“How Could This Be Wrong” featuring Tula matches the song on the flexi disc that (though it seems that some people received different audio recordings), and it’s purely classic Glitch Mob style, with plenty orchestral elements spliced with heavily textured synths and crisp percussion. While none the elements individually are exceptionally unique to The Glitch Mob, their style is nonetheless unmistakable and we’re glad to have them back.
Along with the new single, The Glitch Mob have confirmed that their new album will be titled See Without Eyes, and will be released on May 4.
Check out their new single below!

This is one the best days my life for one reason alone: The Glitch Mob just sent me an exclusive flexi disc what is surely the first single from their upcoming album. On the same flexi disc are the words “See Without Eyes” with a date that reads May 4, 2018.
Whether this name and accompanying date are for this, the debut single f their new album, or for the entirety the album itself remains to be seen–however I believe this information pertains to this particular single.
The Glitch Mob have had an indescribable impact in my life through their music and performances and I’m absolutely delighted they decided to share this with me ahead the general public. If Ooah, Boreta, or edIT are reading this, thank you from the bottom my heart.
The demo, while grainy cause the inherent lack quality with flexi discs, imparts a true Glitch Mob sound with a more palatable, poppy vocal than some previous releases. You’ll just have to check it out yourself to see what I’m talking about…
Enjoy a first exclusive listen below!
