Glassio

Glassio put together an awesome playlist for us last year, so we’re super excited to share their new electro-pop track, ‘Morning House’ featuring Brooklyn artist/producer, Charles Fauna.

‘Morning House’, written out of their bedroom studio, was fuelled by the need to dispel negative energy; “Morning House” is an homage to living in the moment, mindfulness, and self-reflection.”

Tube & Berger by Claudio Oliverio

Tube & Berger by Claudio Oliverio

German duo, Tube & Berger (aka Arndt Roerig and Marko Vidovic) have been producing music for a while now, but it’s only recently that they’ve really sparked our interest. Working hard on evolving their sound from pure club grooves to a more ‘live’ focused indietronica styling, they have quite literally blown us away with their new track, ‘We Are All Stars’.

To help you get used to the transition, the guys have put together a playlist. It fuses indie/electronica/dance into one delicious pot.

GusGus – Crossfade (Maceo Plex Remix)
This has been a huge​ track​ in our DJ sets for over 2 years now​, we ​wish we had made it​!​

Moderat – Running
Big respect to our fellow Germans​, Moderat are ​the best live electronic band​​ in the world right now​.​

Royksopp – What Else Is There? – Trentemoller Remix
Mid Noughties Electro House classic. Sounding just as epically dark and dangerous today​. ​

Mylo – Destroy Rock n Roll
A track to dance and laugh to at the same time​. ​

RÜFÜS ​-​ Innerbloom
Kings of the Electronica new breed smashing it with a chilled masterpiece​.​

Foals – Late Night – Solomun Remix
​Foals are an amazing Indie Rock band​ and with​ Solomon on the ​re​mix​, ​it was always going to be good​…and it is​!​

The Chemical Brothers – Do it Again
Probably our favourite ever band. ​We ​could have chosen loads of their tracks​. ​

SOHN – Conrad
Downtempo brilliance. Spiritual and soulful​.​

The XX – Crystalised
The perfect mix of chiming guitars, indie vocals and electronic beats sensibilities​.​

Justice VS Simian – We Are Your Friends
Not sure any rock band has made a better rabble rousing festival anthem in recent times​.​

Live Dates

Fri 03 Mar – Zero Gravity, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
