On Wednesday, Oct 18, 2023, the historic De Rode Hoed venue was transformed into a magical Tomorrowland Expo, with every corner radiating the energy and spirit of Tomorrowland. The air was filled with the sounds of laughter and music, and the vibrant lights illuminated the faces of the attendees, all eager to embark on this journey into the world of Tomorrowland.
The Tomorrowland Expo offered a range of unique experiences, ensuring that there was something for everyone. From a journey down memory lane to a glimpse behind the scenes of the festival’s creation, this event was a true celebration of Tomorrowland’s past, present, and future.
Down Memory Lane Experience
One of the highlights of the Tomorrowland Expo was the Down Memory Lane Experience. This interactive exhibit took attendees on a journey through the past 20 years of Tomorrowland, showcasing iconic moments, unforgettable performances, and the evolution of the festival over the years.
As we walked through the exhibit, we were immersed in a sea of nostalgia. From the first-ever Tomorrowland in 2005 to the larger-than-life stages of recent years, each chapter of Tomorrowland’s history was beautifully captured. The exhibit featured photographs, videos, and memorabilia, allowing us to relive the magic of past editions and appreciate the incredible growth and impact of Tomorrowland.
But the Down Memory Lane Experience was more than just a trip down memory lane. It was also a testament to the vision and creativity of Tomorrowland’s renowned creative team. We had the opportunity to learn about the inspiration behind the festival’s upcoming 2023 theme, ‘Adscendo,’ and witness the passion and dedication that goes into creating a world as enchanting as Tomorrowland.
Solo Vida Bar
No celebration is complete without a toast, and the Solo Vida Bar at the Tomorrowland Expo was the perfect place to raise a glass. The bar served a selection of eccentric Tomorrowland cocktails, each one a unique blend of flavors and creativity.
We found ourselves drawn to the ”Tomorrowland Cocktail”, Tomorrowland’s very own creation. Made with Absolute Vodka, cucumber, honey , lime and lavender, it was the perfect accompaniment to the expo The open bar created an atmosphere of celebration and joy, where strangers became friends and the love for music brought us all together.
The Solo Vida Bar was not just a place to enjoy a drink; it was a reflection of Tomorrowland’s commitment to creating unique and unforgettable experiences. The attention to detail, from the specially crafted cocktails to the personalized service, was a testament to Tomorrowland’s dedication to creating moments that transcend the ordinary.

Producer Discusses What One Million Spotify Streams Earned Him This Year
Among many Spotify success stories and the debate on their royalties system going forward, German electronic musician Hainbach adds to the situation. Amidst the echoes of Taylor Swift’s staggering royalties, Hainbach steps forward, revealing the harsh truth of his one million Spotify streams in 2023. This revelation comes in a somber tone, as the composer discloses that his milestone translates to a mere £2,160 in royalties – $2,742.65 in today’s money. This is a sum that, while helpful, barely covers his utility bills. The chasm between Spotify’s glamorous facade and the financial struggles of experimental artists becomes starkly evident.
For Hainbach, the journey to the six-figure year comes primarily from just a few of his tracks. ‘The Guide‘, a 2020 release, hit over half of the sum with 560,000 plays, while ‘The Wooden‘, from his latest album Voice Magnetic, notched up 116,000 plays in only six months. Despite these accomplishments, the financial yield remains meager, echoing the struggle many artists face in the digital music landscape.
The Looming Silence
As Hainbach grapples with the modest returns from Spotify, a looming threat adds to the discord. Reports suggest that tracks accumulating less than 1,000 plays annually will face demonetization starting next year. This prospect raises concerns for lesser-known artists, hinting at a future where their creative output on Spotify may yield nothing in return. In this silence, the producer advocates for alternative avenues to sustain their craft.
“Bandcamp or coming to a live show is still the best way to support me and other artists.”
While the debate continues as to which is the best way to directly support artists for them to make a living out of what they love and are most passionate about, unless you’re already on top of the world and amassing an exorbitant cult of followers, audio streaming giant Spotify is certainly out of the question for the best lifeline for those who we value for their contribution to music.

[Event Review] Eric Prydz Delivers 3 Sold Out HOLO Performances at Brooklyn Navy Yard
Last weekend, Eric Prydz took over the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York City for his HOLO show concept. The demand to see the global dance innovator performing was massive. Fans pounced on this 3 day extravaganza as more than 60,000 tickets were sold over the 3 events. All 3 performance nights were organized by Teksupport, and this was the first time Eric Prydz has brought his HOLO show to New York since 2019. We went to the Saturday show but from what ravers who went on the other days, each show was unique.
The HOLO show delivered an extraordinary sensory experience with a massive LED screen, cutting-edge lighting, and intricate 3D holographic effects. From the onset of Prydz’s performance, he captivated the audience by seamlessly blending tracks from his extensive catalog into a cohesive and immersive audiovisual journey.
A highlight of the show was the mesmerizing holographic effects that transformed the stage into a breathtaking otherworldly environment. Synchronized perfectly with Prydz’s music, these visuals created a stunning experience that left the crowd in awe, with reaching hands, appearing robots, astronauts, and other life-sized figures. In addition to the visuals, the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s upgrade sound system and lights only added to the top tier production. Beyond the visuals, Prydz’s expert track selection showcased his ability to blend genres, offering a unique sound. The set ranged from uplifting progressive house anthems to dark techno tracks, taking the audience on an emotional rollercoaster. Eric also dished out songs from his Pryda alias with hit tracks such as ‘Power Drive‘, ‘Elements‘, ‘One Day‘, and ‘Allein‘. He also sprinkled in some Cirez D with ‘Evacuate‘. The dancefloor maestro ended the performance with hit track ‘Opus’, met with thunderous cheers from across the venue.
With that breathtaking conclusion, Prydz concluded the roller coaster set. The immersive nature of HOLO truly showcases Prydz’s creative prowess. Few artists worldwide can match the impact of his performance style while continuing to innovate and evolve. If you get the chance to witness HOLO, don’t miss it. It’s a performance that must be experienced firsthand to be believed.

Music makes the world go round. And in that regard, we’re constantly on the lookout for new, exciting tunes to share with our audience. We’ve found some that cause goosebumps, and make you open your eyes and get up from your chair to dance. So put on your best pair of headphones, or turn up your speakers, and enjoy this week’s New Music Friday.
Here are our top picks for the best music we came across this week, in no particular order.
Ar|Roots & Starmode – Lift Me Up
Genre: Tech House, House
Lift yourself up with a collaboration of a handful of skilled producers. Ar|Roots, a duo formed by brothers David and Albert with over two decades of combined experience, sees itself against Finnish artist collective Starmode, on their latest, ‘Lift Me Up‘.
Groovy, powerful and refreshing, ‘Lift Me Up’ merges everything you’d love about an old-school House track into a Tech House beat that once simply can’t get enough of. Chances are, you’re going to get some energy after listening to this one.
Synymata, MmmCherry & Leah Culver – Back In Time
Genre: Dubstep, Future Bass
Prepare for a one-way journey. Bass producer Synymata joins forces with MmmCherry and the voice of Leah Culver for a spectacular melodic voyager, ‘Back In Time‘.
Beautiful ambience takes you by the hand and slowly sinks you into the rabbit hole of this track, and before you even know it you’re right in front of the most drastic change, from a melodic masterpiece to a festival anthem. Make sure to breathe before the drop!
ALWZ SNNY & Robbie Rosen – King of Hearts
Genre: Hardstyle, Happy Hardcore
Behind a sunshine mask with three smiles, Annapolis producer ALWZ SNNY makes sure to spread positivity through his music every second. The fact he produced this single alongside American Idol finalist Robbie Rosen should tell you all you need to know about its quality.
‘King of Hearts‘ draws your beloved Euphoric Hardstyle progression that makes you lift your hands high up in the air, all while singing along to the melody — without you even noticing how you got to memorise it in just one go.
Nils Hoffmann & Kasbo feat. Vancouver Sleep Clinic – Running In A Dream
Genre: Deep House, Progressive House
One of Germany’s most outstanding producers of the past years, Nils Hoffmann, just announced his next album, Running In A Dream, to be released via Anjunadeep. Out today is the title track from said album, which counts with the presence of Swedish producer Kasbo, and the special vocal feature of Vancouver Sleep Clinic.
Melodic, dynamic, yet chill and pleasant, ‘Running In A Dream’ presents itself as a beautiful in-between genre-bender. Imagine Melodic Techno, Organic House, and Progressive, all coming together alongside soft piano lines and vocal bliss. That’s it.
CASSIMM – Son De Lo (Tim Cullen Remix)
Genre: Tech House, House
For a Tech House belter, check out Tim Cullen‘s latest piece of work. An absolute breakthrough in the Industry, Cullen has made headlines for his infectious groove and great skills. Just so you know, the man was hand-picked to be a resident DJ at Ministry of Sound, in London.
Today’s remix is one for CASSIMM‘s ‘Son De Lo‘, a track which, under Cullen’s creative reimagination, comes as a club-ready record, and which has earned the support of many big stars already. Press play and you’ll see why’s that.
Zombie Cats – Flava
Genre: Drum and Bass
Having been around for close to a decade by now, Zombie Cats, funnily enough, identify more as chameleons than cats: their passion for music knows no bounds regarding styles or genres. Anything from purebred Drum and Bass to Hip-Hop-tinted EDM, you shouldn’t expect anything from them, other than an excellent quality.
Their single ‘Flava‘ has just been lifted from their album Mutation & Reanimation, and through clever Drum and Bass atmospheres and tight percussion, it hopes to represent all the evolution of the Zombie Cats project over the years. And, on top of that, it’s unreasonably savoury.
Stay tuned for all the music we’ll be sharing under the NMF and TTT concepts each week. And be sure to follow EDMTunes for all the latest news and reviews that revolve around our beloved Electronic Dance Music!
