[ULTRA 2014 Schedule Recommendation] TMN’s Must See Guide to Ultra (Miami 3/28 – 3/30)

1239423_10152109764737739_1828179057_n

Ahh. The time is finally here. All winter long we’ve been angrily looking at the calendar, not-so-patiently awaiting the start of festival season here in the states. To kick things off in 2014, we’re obviously overwhelmingly excited for what Ultra 2014 is bringing to the table.

As you would guess, this year’s line up is stacked, as usual. There’s a veritable pantheon of EDM legends, coupled with some amazing up and coming artists as well. We traditionally like to do a full stream of everyone that’s going to be there, but this year we’re going to change it up. Instead of giving you a tiny sample of each artist who’s playing, we’re going to give you our recommendations, day by day.

Scheduling is going to be tricky, so make sure you set out a proper game plan. It might be hard to stick to after a few beverages, but take it from us – don’t miss out on seeing your favorite artist, or any of these suggestions below:

Chainsmokers – Stage 7

Picked by Bryn Carter & Clayton Warwick

TMN Staff Comment: Two handsome devils reigning from New York who can make ANY song the ultimate remix. Make sure to check out these two who will keep your feet moving and your mind spinning with their intense indie/electronic melodies.

M.I.A. – Live Stage

Picked by Eric Gossett

mia300-790e9b19a08dbe8b6be20c05655262c4260e563f-s6-c30
TMN Staff Comment: The ever-controversial M.I.A. is definitely a “don’t miss” performance at this year’s Ultra Music Festival. The singer just released her critically-acclaimed album Matangi last year and is currently being sued by the NFL for $15 million for her performance at the Super Bowl. So if that was what they (couldn’t) show at the Super Bowl, I can only imagine how wild her uncensored stage show must be.

12TH Planet – UMF Radio Stage

Picked by Clayton Warwick

12thplanet

TMN Staff Comment: Last year, I had the pleasure of introducing someone to trap, and did so by watching 12th Planet’s set on Sunday afternoon. This well respected, LA based producer will be throwing down a massive set full of filthy beats. If you want to get down and dirty, don’t miss this set.

Kill The Noise – UMF Radio Stage

Picked by Michael Serratore

Kill-The-Noise-Kill-Kill-Kill-EP

TMN Staff Comment: There are plenty of players in the world of filthy bass, but no one does it quite like KTN. There’s an undeniable energy in everything he does, and that will only be taken to the next level amongst a crowd of frenzied fans

Chance the Rapper – Live Stage

Picked by Baseer Ahmad and Clayton Warwick

Chance-the-Rapper

TMN Staff Comment: You say you’re going to Ultra to only listen to beats? Don’t limit yourself. A break in the bass will be welcomed, and who better to give you said break than Chi-Town native, Chance the Rapper?

Childish Gambino: They Dont Like Me (ft. Chance the Rapper)

The Glitch Mob – Worldwide Stage

Picked by Rachel Haroldson

Glitch-Mob-Love-Death-Immortality

TMN Staff Comment: This is a no brainer. Glitch Mob absolutely throws down with live performances, from the insane stage set-ups to the energy of the group, you can just see that these guys have a passion for performing and love giving the audience an unforgettable show.

The Glitch Mob Talks Coachella, True Detective and Pink Floyd [TMN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]


Glitch Mob

TMN: Hey guys, thank you so much for taking some time to chat with us. There’s quite a bit to talk to you guys about! From Love Death Immortality coming out on February 11th to the Coachella announcement, you guys have had a busy winter!

Absolutely. Things are in a pressure cooker right now. Our happy place.

TMN: Let’s start off with talking about the Coachella announcement. Since starting in 2006, you’ve played at some of the most significant venues. How does it feel to come to Coachella this year?

Coachella is one of the most ridiculously awesome events on earth, and we’re grateful to get to play for a second time. Some of our very first shows to massive crowds were at Coachella, playing unofficial shows on the The Do Lab’s circus-freak misting side stage. So this will actually be our 5th Coachella. It’s way too much fun.

TMN: What is the set list looking like? Are you going to go heavy on the new album, or do a blend of some new and some old? Any surprise guests we should expect?

Oh yeah, we’ll be playing the new album on tour. Plenty of classics too. It was designed for the live stage — the whole experience will really come alive on a massive sound system. There will be some other tricks up the ol’ sleeve, but you’ll have to come to the show to see…

TMN: While Coachella is huge, you have to have some other large venues that are still on your bucket list. What’s “the one” venue or festival that’s you haven’t played at just yet?

We are excited to hopefully play Glastonbury at some point, we hear it’s massive!

Jakwob – Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Jakwob
Fade (Kicks N Lick Remix)

Our favorite bass heavy duo, Andy Joplin and Jerrod Jordan (AKA Kicks n Licks) are back with another smooth, melodic remix. This time around, these two beatsmiths took on the stunning, drum-centric tune from Jakwob, which features fluttering vocals from Maiday.

Once again we’re shown their ability to craft gorgeous melodies that fit perfectly with the vocals. Combining a slow, build featuring intense, melodic synths with some heavy bass drops and electro style grit, “Fade” is given a whole new soundscape. While it is a departure from the original pop tune, the lyrics hold just enough to bridge the gap.

These two have quite a few shows coming up, so make sure you head to their facebook to see if they’re coming to your tow.
