Lightning in a Bottle festival might be one of the best festivals in the States that you probably don’t know about. Nestled along Lake Skinner in Temecula, California, LIB has created a precedence of an artistically-focused festival experience featuring a balance of up-and-coming, local, and world-renowned music and visual artists.
One of the unique aspects of Lightning in a Bottle Festival is that it’s curated by The Do Lab artist collective whose productions can be seen at festivals all across the country; the most popular of which is probably their dedicated stage/art installation at Coachella for over the past 9 years. In anticipation for LIB being held the 11th – 15th of July, a 7-track playlist was released by The Do Lab showcasing a glimpse of the diverse musical talent on this year’s lineup.
Featured artists include Rusko, Purity Ring, Tycho, PANTyRAiD, and more. For more information on LIB and how to experience it, check out their website for information on tickets and more.

The month of the Bull is upon us and that can only mean one thing; get ready to take flight! Sit back, take small sip on this hauntingly-hip-hop-influenced-blurry-and-atmospheric-soundscape-audio-bass-experiment and let your third eye open as we dive deep into the subconscious with our latest Exclusive.Mixx featuring UNKWN.
Sometimes our 120BMP world needs to be slowed down a bit and that’s what UNKWN has done with his mix. Transporting us onto new sonic levels sacrificing his late hours trapped away in his loft studio in the heart the Danish capitol to bring us this truly incredible mix. Touching bass with the likes of Rihanna, Para One, Cam’ron, Ciara, Zebra Katz, Sweater Beats and a slew of bass drenched remixes, UNKWN has sought to make a balance between beats and sounds, creating a harmony, that’ll place him into the fine company of seapunk and chillwave acts, such as Shlohmo and xxyyxx. Hit the break for more info on our latest feature, some cover art, and of course a few bonus materials.
Happy Friday! Probably one of my favorite remixes this year…see how many different songs you can pick out of this Cashmere Cat remix. Enjoy.
Wanna know how you know STS9 is amazing? Because they got so many requests for the mix that they played between sets at Red Rocks this past summer that they released it for everyone to enjoy. While there is no tracklist there are artists such tagged such as Otis Redding, James Brown, Boards of Canada, Air, and a handful of other artists you didn’t know you loved. This appropriately titled mix features 100% good vibes and nothing less.
