Desolat label boss Loco Dice kicks off 2018 in fine style with a huge new single which sees the him reflecting on his musical roots and his connection to Dusseldorf, Detroit and beyond, whilst giving a taster for a brand new long player to come later in the year.
Dice’s recent past has seen the master of robust house and techno funk serve up killer remixes of Moby’s classic ‘Go’ and release his Underground Sound Suicide album, whilst continuing to headline the biggest clubs and festivals around the world.
At the same time, he has directed his endless passion and musical sensibilities to bare upon his Desolat label, with a stream of records released from some of the most exciting artists around and supported by DJs across the globe. Now though the stage is set for the first new Loco Dice original recording in some time and it is sure to see him once more at heart of the global scene.
The bristling ‘Roots’ is a typically forceful track that blurs the lines between house end techno. It has twitchy synths bringing the energy to hurried drums as smooth chords add real soul. The claps are coarse & edgy, whilst Dice’s own dark vocals bring a brooding atmosphere and the whole thing is a synapse firing rave-up that cannot fail to detonate any dance floor. An instrumental is also included for even more visceral thrills.
This new single is the lead track from Dice’s latest album project, entitled ‘Love Letters’ and to be released later in 2018.
Afterlife continues its worldwide odyssey with a highly-anticipated stop in Mexico City.
After an epic jungle voyage in Tulum this January, Tale Of Us bring their revered event series to Pabellón Cuervo in the capital, a vast event space which plays host to many of the world’s largest acts when visiting Mexico.
Joining the Tale Of Us duo will be Agents Of Time with their mind-bending, three-man live set, as well as the dark, introspective sounds of Mind Against and local talent Øostil. Tale Of Us, their guests and the special visual production of the room will channel the realm of consciousness.
Tickets on sale from March 1st, 11am CT.
Adrian Shala and Adrian Schweizer, the Swiss duo recording and performing as Adriatique, sign the third Afterlife release of 2018, ‘Ray’. The two-track single follows their remix of Tale Of Us & Vaal’s ‘Monument’ in 2017, and marks the beginning of Adriatique’s own journey with Afterlife Recordings.
We first heard of ‘Ray’ in Tale Of Us’ sublime fabric 97 CD, where its soaring melody ended the mix on a euphoric high. It stands out as a scintillating dancefloor composition, whose lead synth line will no-doubt create many memorable dancefloor moments. ‘Voices From The Dawn’ takes a more subtle approach to the same thrilling effect. Driven by the rolling beats, it reveals itself sporadically in spirited surges of life.
These two tracks not only show the range of Adriatique’s production focus, but show them to be highly-accomplished whether making hypnotic, peak-time grooves or epic songs for the end of the night.

It takes in a total of thirteen exclusive tracks spread across the Afterlife label regulars and unreleased upcoming artists.

International Music Summit (IMS) today announce details of its annual Dalt Vila event in Ibiza Old Town, the finale of the summit and widely regarded as the official opening of the Ibiza summer season.
Now in its 11th year, IMS Ibiza is a three-day educational and thought leadership platform for the electronic music industry held annually in the dance music capital of the world. For this closing finale IMS has curated the most unique line up that Ibiza will witness in 2018, with a backdrop of the sun setting over the historic 2,500-year-old fort and UNESCO World Heritage Site, overlooking Ibiza Old Town and the Mediterranean Sea.
With both legendary and iconic artists sharing the stage with the most exciting emerging artists of today, the 2018 line up is a strong contender for the best in IMS Dalt Vila history. Headlining is Sven Väth, the strictly vinyl only DJ and dance music pioneer with a career spanning more than 30 years returns for his third IMS Dalt Vila appearance, following his recent shocking news that his long-running Cocoon Monday weekly will switch venues to Pacha after 18 years at Amnesia. Also announced is seminal New York DJ Danny Tenaglia and respected Israeli DJ and firm fixture on the Ibizan calendar Guy Gerber.
Other outstanding sets will come from Paco Osuna, Andrea Oliva and IMS co-founder and industry icon Pete Tong; all seasoned Ibizan artists with long and rich histories on the island’s dancefloors.
Ensuring the international pace is upheld is Korean artist Peggy Gou and Middle East influenced DJ duo Bedouin who in 2017 introduced Bedouin Presents Saga at HEART, one of the best new residencies in Ibiza last summer.
Adding further strength is Dubfire, an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him within the top tier of electronic music artists in the world and Nastia, the break out Ukrainian artist who is rapidly rising through the international ranks.
Bringing the diverse flavours of the UK dance scene is Jackmaster, a pioneering DJ whose profile has rocketed in the last 5 years due to his truly open-minded and unique approach to performing, expertly delivering his own blend of house and techno.
IMS Dalt Vila will also feature an opening set from BURN Residency 2017 winner Furkan Kurt.
With further exclusive back-to-pack pairing announcements coming soon, this spectacular line up celebrates the closing of IMS Ibiza and the opening of the summer season on the island in one of the most extraordinary locations in the world.
IMS Co-founder Ben Turner states “IMS Dalt Vila is one of the most beautiful ways to celebrate another summer of electronic music in Ibiza and the end to another IMS summit. It’s reflective every year of the dominant sound and tempo of the island, and right now this continues to be the underground house and techno sound. The line-up reflects artists with some of the best residencies including Sven and Bedouin, but also iconic artists like Danny Tenaglia, and the hottest new names of today including Jackmaster, Nastia and Peggy Gou. Male; female; Spanish; international; young and old – it’s a good reflection of techno today.”
