Yesterday, Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac Events, and NightOwl Radio took headliners on a wild ride throughout 35 minutes of fast-paced mixing that revealed the lineup for this year’s EDC Las Vegas. As with every year, Your EDM did its best to unlock the mysteries of the mix, and we did pretty well.
That being said, there’s a lot that we missed, and a lot of nuance left in interpretation. For instance, you might have heard Green Velvet twice in yesterday’s mix — that’s because he’s playing once with Claude VonStroke as Get Real, and another time as Green Velvet Presents La La Land. Or, in another case, the many b2b sets, such as the absolutely unheard of Skream! b2b Rusko old school dubstep set.
It’s at this point that we must pause and reflect… Holy shit, SKREAM B2B RUSKO!?
