There are some sick youtube clips of the most recent starfields now available. I have to say, well done Northern Light for that massive 9 meter 2 ton structure. The DJ’s loved it and I’m sure the crowd did as well.

Check it out:



OMG OMG OMG we just got these from Starfields 09. Do you SEEEEE that shit?! Its fucking insane. I wonder how much that must have cost to put together. Probably serious serious cash. I think I’m going to let the photos do the talking for themselves this time.

They’re going to be building 8 more of these:

And stacking them like this:

Just imagine: its 12PM, you’re drunk and with all your friends at a colossal rave – the perfect ending to an epic freshers week. You guys have been dancing but you don’t know many of the tracks – a few yeah, but you guess the artists are playing their new stuff. Then, for the first time, you hear this song – The Jack Beats Remix of Drop The Pressure – and who’s dropping it? JACK BEATS THEMSELVES!!!! You hear the melody and the crowd goes wild – everyone is lost in a sea of music alcohol and drugs, you’ve never heard a sound system like this in your life. Endorphins flood you body you’re feeling so good you never want this moment to end. Then to top it off, Jack Beats is gonna throw a beat under it for y’all to thump to. You’re in ecstasy. Yeah, Starfields 09.

Trust. Just got shot over the DJ Manaia Re-Edit of Jack Beat’s UFO. Its sick, but only through headphones or good speakers. Totally gonna be a banger at the clubs, but not on the ride home.

From The Mouth of Porn – Tribal Ravestep by Dan

Has anyone ever checked out Noise Porn?

You guys should. They’re a great music blog based out of Edinburgh. Enyway, they just wrote this awesome article about the ever-favorite-among-music-blogs Hostage and got some exclusive tracks from him. While describing the track, they used the term Tribal Ravestep to describe this new Kuduro-like tribal beat coming from Hostage, Jack Beats, Larry Tee, Foamo, Buraka Som Sistema (I know they consider themselves Kuduro, but lets be serious here) and so many others. Take a look:

‘Badman Sound’ is a funky little ravestep monster which is full of wobbly goodness and soaring buildups. The vocal samples are fantastic and really add to the whole tribal ravestep vibe that runs through this tune. The synths here are as always superb, ripping their way through the tune (3.34 for some of the coolest tweaking sounds).

It totally makes sense. From now on, FUCK Kuduro, embrace Tribal Ravestep. PS if you’re from America (like me), you probably think that everything meant for clubs is “techno.” Well, its not, so get over it. Dubstep is not a band, Drum n’ Bass is not dead, and Tribal Ravestep is what hipsters from Philadelphia, Lisbon, and apparently Edinburgh listen to.

Also, going with’s fuck you attitude to anything legal, here is Noise Porn’s “exclusive” Hostage Track.
Disclaimer: We love Noise Porn, but come on guys, how long was that gonna stay “exclusive”? Two days? A week?

Jack Beats know how to wobble (I don’t know the official term) – that much is known. What these guys continually prove is how versatile their sound can be. Just released is their new remix of Florence and the Machine called Drumming Music (Jack Beats Remix).

Seriously these guys know wtf they’re doing. I can just see this going down SO well at Cab Vol. Another thing, it kinda sounds like a song you’d see in some sci fi movie during the huge slo-mo rave. Can you feel it?
