The remix we’ve been waiting for since last winter is finally out.

It was about time! Do you wish to progress midway through January with a smile on your face? Then this one is a must. You might be familiar with the whole OceanLab: The Anthology series, which kicked off last November with legendary Trance trio — and OceanLab members — Above & Beyond revisiting their outstanding Progressive Mix of their all-time classic ‘Satellite’. Label veterans Genix and Seven Lions also joined the party with their remixes of ‘Beautiful Together’ and ‘Satellite’ respectively. Today, one more Anjunahero contributes to the collection, none other than Marsh.

“In January 2023, I got an exciting message from Anjuna to see if I’d like to remix an OceanLab classic of my choice! I had the answer deep down – it had to be ‘Sirens Of The Sea’ – one of my all-time favorite trance anthems.”

-Marsh

A man who’s had the absolute busiest time these past years, going on tour before and after unveiling his latest album, Endless, Marsh is, without a doubt, among the leading acts of Anjunadeep as of today. Currently touring the world with his All Night Long concept — a type of Open-To-Close (OTC) show —, many have had the chance to catch a glimpse of his magic, surgical production and mixing techniques.

Also, many who have seen him play, have had the chance to listen to the belter of a remix out today. I say this, because I lived it myself.

Let Us Be The Sirens Of The Sea…

Sometime around February or March of last year, a few videos appeared on the internet in which a new version of OceanLab’s iconic ‘Sirens Of The Sea’ was being played. Those with a love for everything Anjuna would know the style of said remix sounded very familiar to a certain Marsh. Further material showing Tom himself behind the decks playing the track solidified the rumours: it was his own take.

Since then, ‘Sirens Of The Sea (Marsh Remix)’ has become a staple of his sets. The 3-hour-long Malta set included it, for instance.

Buenos Aires, A Personal Story

A while back, I had the chance to go and watch Tom play in 2GTHR, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The set was out of this world, you can read the review if you want. But a very special story I can tell from that night is that, maybe entirely by chance, I, standing at the front of the pack, raised my phone in the air with a simple note: “HAVE YOU GOT SIRENS OF THE SEA”. Not only did he look at me dead in the eye and said “Yes”, in such a calm voice, but he played it RIGHT AWAY. One of the most intense connections I’ve had with a DJ so far.

“Another savoury treat Tom dropped on the dancefloor was an upcoming remix for Above & Beyond‘s OceanLab – Sirens Of The Sea. Won’t spoil it to you, but I think I never stopped moving and singing during that track.”

-Myself, halfway through my article ‘Marsh Tears it Apart in Buenos Aires, Again‘.

‘Sirens Of The Sea (Marsh Remix)’

This version of the Trance classic is, as you’d expect, a masterpiece. With a base and style so true to Marsh yet staying so elegantly close to the original and its intent, it’s safe to say Tom not only crafted something beautiful, his remix is a tribute to Tony’s, Jono’s, Paavo’s and Justine’s track from over 15 years ago.

Tom’s adaptation contains the rhythmic chords we’re all familiar with, but in his signature warm sine-plucky sound, apart from a tasty selection of drums, crispy enough to lift you up from the chill vibe the track portrays. The break, on another note, beautifully captures the essence of that long-gone Trance, with enough ambiance to make you levitate while singing to the easygoing chorus of Justine Suissa’s angelical goodness of a voice. In the most Tony-like way possible, plase say “Mmmmmmmmm“.

Nowadays, compilation albums are one of the most popular ways labels promote their work and identity.

These are some of the examples of the stuff you can find on this unique release. Artists known not only for their underground style and persona but for their mastery of live performing.

On this new album, you can find different sounds, genres, and the same quality in every single one of them. Listening to Carl’s mix of 25 tracks from 25 artists highlights the range of talent and diversity of output from the Awesome Soundwave family. Certainly, a strong, well-thought-out, and quality-crafted release.

Bio-Music: New Bionic Arm Allows Plant To Play Instruments

Today on inventions that feel extremely surrealistic: Bionic and the Wires invented a machine that allows a living plant to “play” a musical instrument. The group will debut their performance featuring the “bionic robot arm” and a plant this weekend at the city’s Castlehead Viaduct venue on 20th April.

Bionic and the Wires, led by Manchester based Andy Kidd on the keyboard and Jon Ross on the plants via the robot arm, combines botanical rhythms with atmospheric textures and soundscapes created by synthesizers. The art encourages “new ways of thinking about the natural world”.

The invention harnesses electrical bio-signals that plants generate by natural processes such as photosynthesis. The sensors attached to the plant leaves capture such pulses. In consequence, electricity transforms into power that moves the robotic arm.

The machine builds upon precursors by the duo, such as Plantwave. This past bionic robot arm, however, enables the plant to directly “play” musical instruments. These include the steel handpan, drum, and the violin.

Speaking on the new invention, Jon Ross said: “We’ve spent many months researching and developing the new bionic robot arms. It’s exciting to think that with this invention we may have opened up the opportunity for a whole new genre of music. Maybe it’s called bionica!?”

Tickets for the upcoming gig at Castlehead Viaduct are available now. You can secure yours here. What do you think? Is this the right direction to take away power from AI and technology and bring back the sounds of nature? (Source)

Coachella Weekend 1 Saw Decrease in Arrests

Screen Shot 2024 04 18 at 6.12.26 PM 1024x372 1

Weekend one of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival was a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. But nothing could dim the shine of the triumphant sets delivered by Doja Cat and No Doubt. They proved all the doubters wrong and showed that the festival had true headliners after all. However, the latest police arrest reports for Coachella 2024 show a surprising trend – a decrease in the number of arrests compared to previous years. According to a report shared by the Indio Police Department with SFGATE, there were only 81 arrests throughout the weekend, along with 47 parking citations. These numbers mark a significant decline, with arrests down by 20% and parking issues reduced by 43% from the previous year.

Despite the overall decrease in arrests, the majority of the incidents were still related to drugs. Intoxication accounted for 28 arrests, while possession of drugs for sale resulted in another 28 arrests. Additionally, 18 individuals were arrested for using false identification, most commonly to purchase alcohol. While these numbers may seem high, Officer Guitron from the Indio Police Department highlighted that this year was relatively uneventful in terms of crime at Coachella. However, he did emphasize the ongoing concern of phone theft, urging festival-goers to be vigilant.

One interesting detail from the arrest reports is the mention of recovered phones on the IDP Facebook page. A post revealed that 49 phones had been recovered, although it is unclear how many were lost rather than stolen. Despite the high number of recovered phones, there was only one arrest related to phone theft so far, indicating a potential disconnect between the number of thefts and the arrests made.

Decrease in Arrests

While drug-related arrests still dominated the statistics, it is worth noting that the overall trend of crime at Coachella seems to be stabilizing. Officer Guitron’s assertion that drug citations were no more prevalent than in past years indicates that law enforcement is effectively managing this recurring issue. However, the continued concern over phone theft serves as a reminder for festival-goers to safeguard their belongings and stay vigilant in crowded areas.

As Coachella continues to evolve and attract a diverse crowd of music lovers, it is essential for both attendees and organizers to prioritize safety and security. The decrease in arrests and parking citations at Coachella 2024 is a positive step towards creating a safer environment for all participants. By staying informed about the rules and regulations, respecting fellow attendees, and taking proactive measures to protect personal belongings, festival-goers can contribute to a more enjoyable and trouble-free experience at Coachella.

One of the persistent challenges faced by attendees at music festivals like Coachella is the threat of phone theft. The recent arrest reports from Coachella 2024 highlight the ongoing concern over stolen phones, despite only one arrest being made in connection to phone theft so far. The recovery of 49 phones, as mentioned in the IDP Facebook post, raises questions about the prevalence of theft versus the effectiveness of law enforcement in addressing these incidents.

As festival-goers navigate the crowded grounds of Coachella, it is crucial to take precautions to prevent phone theft. Simple steps such as keeping phones secure in zipped pockets or bags, avoiding leaving them unattended, and enabling tracking features can help deter potential thieves. Additionally, staying aware of surroundings, reporting suspicious behavior to security personnel, and using password protection on devices can further enhance the security of personal belongings.

While the decrease in overall arrests at Coachella 2024 is a positive development, the issue of phone theft remains a pressing concern that requires continued attention and vigilance. By working together to protect personal belongings, stay informed about safety measures, and support law enforcement efforts, festival attendees can contribute to a safer and more enjoyable experience for all at Coachella and similar events.
