There will also be the return of The Warehouse Project in the UK, Amnesia Ibiza’s closing party, elrow in Brooklyn, and events from the likes of Jamie Jones, Excision, Oliver Heldens, and a tour from Porter Robinson.

And what would be summer without music?  This year, there are a number of highly-anticipated forthcoming albums that will make their way from DVBBS, Gorgon City, Felix Cartal, Eli & Fur, Chris Malinchak, and we absolutely cannot wait!

May’s track releases were packed with nothing but palpable feel-good energy that can only be described as lively, buoyant, emphatic, and inspirational.  The track of the month is granted to Galantis, David Guetta, and Little Mix for their stellar release, “Heartbreak Anthem” out now on Big Beat Records.… Enjoy!
