Who can believe the summer is actually coming to a close?  It has been one for the history books as live music has come to a halt, artists are scrambling to be heard anyway that they can.

Claude VonStroke announced the launch of Dirtybird Live TV and live-streaming has become the new norm.  August saw live-streams from Burning Man 2020 where fans from across the globe could watch the man burn for free, Disclosure announced the release of their new album, ENERGY, and Florian Picasso honored his late great-grandfather Pablo Picasso.

Life Stream, a live streaming event from Exit festival announced its lineup, which is scheduled to take place in Europe in September, which is something to add to the calendar.

In terms of live events, EDC Las Vegas announced its postponement to May 2021, and Electric Zoo Cancun announced its headliners for April 2021. 

As always, music continues to be released.  August saw a plethora of summer vocals and sounds, many of them being very familiar to dance music aficionados. Among the most prominent came from Toolroom Records with KC Lights’ “Girl” which has become our track of the month.  Please enjoy the track below.
