We can hardly believe it, but it has been 10 years since Group Therapy was released by Above & Beyond.
To commemorate the anniversary, ’10 Years of Group Therapy Pt. 1′ is coming out next Friday. The album will be a limited edition single collection box set filled with commemorative remixes for the iconic album. It features artists such as ilan Bluestone, CRi and Kasablanca. Bluestone is releasing their remix of “Sun and Moon” later on this week, before the album drops. The album will also include a treat from Above & Beyond as well – the long-awaited ‘Prelude (Future Summer Mix)’.
You can pre-order the album on vinyl already from the Anjuna store, or pre-save it on the streaming service that you use here. The best part is, this album is a part one first installment. While there is no word yet on when the next installment will happen, we know for sure that it is coming.
See the announcement below.

Travis Scott is issuing a “general denial” in response to 11 lawsuits against him due to the fallout at his Astroworld Festival. So far, more than 250 cases have been filed for various degrees of liability. The allegations are largely for negligence due to the inaction during his set. He has signaled that he plans to deny liability and ask to be dismissed from all other cases. In other words, Travis is making clear that the deaths and injuries are not his responsibility, and he’s asking the judge to toss the suit against him and his entities.
850 people are represented from the deadly crowd rush at the event, several of whom suffered a range of bodily injuries and emotional harm from having to step over dead bodies. Of the several attorneys representing the clients, civil rights attorney Ben Crump is one of the most prominent. “This lawsuit is not just about getting justice for them,” Crump told the Hill. “But it’s about making sure the promoters and the organizers know that you cannot allow this to ever happen in the future, even if you have to immediately stop the concert.”
According to a Billboard report last week, over 250 lawsuits have been filed against Scott, Live Nation and other defendants affiliated with the mass casualty at Astroworld Festival on Nov. 5. To date, the cases represent over 850 people. The total damages have reached an excess of $3 billion. The complaints accuse Travis, Live Nation and other parties of gross negligence by allegedly creating an environment that incited thousands of people to surge near the stage, which crushed festival-goers in front.

Residencies are one of the best things about Las Vegas, and another great one has been added to the list. Joining the ranks with Tiesto and Zedd, deadmau5 has his newest residency at Zouk Nightclub.
Zouk Nightclub and its daytime counterpart AYU Dayclub are relatively new additions to Las Vegas. The Zouk Grouo, which has nightlife in cities around the world including Singapore, Malaysia, and even cruises, joined forces with Resorts World Law Vegas and opened in September 2021. Tiesto was the opening headliner.
Deadmau5 announced today on his social media. Not only he have residency, he has an exclusive: the Vegas Cube. ‘The Cube,’ is going to be a new iteration of his signature structure exclusively at Zouk Nightclub. With the addition of the Vegas Cube, fans can experience deadmau5 in a custom cube with additional new visuals, enhanced production, and music.
Deadmau5 stated that he is, “excited to bring an original cube to Vegas for Zouk.” Since his last tour with cubev3, he’s had numerous songs released, including “Hyperlandia” and “When Summer Dies.” “We’re going to be incorporating so much cool new stuff in the Zouk cube show,” the producer said of the upcoming residency.
The first show is January 5, 2022 and tickets are already on sale and can be purchased here.

Anyone who was captivated by Kaskade’s opening track this last EDC can rest assured; they no longer have to revisit the set to hear his epic remake of his own “Turn It Down.”
The single is out today, and it’s the first of many songs to be slowly released in the third version of his iconic “Fire and Ice” album. The release celebrates the 10 year anniversary of the collection of songs coming out. “‘how would this record sound if I made it today?!’ I thought. Over the last 4 months I put it together and I am stoked on how it turned out,” he says. Considering the slew of Melodic Techno he dropped during this same set at EDC Las Vegas in October, it stands to reason the arrangements he’s cooked up for this new release will carry his take on this newly popular style of Dance Music.
Stream the single on your platform of choice and get stoked for a new single every coming Friday until the album’s release.

Alex Parker & Alexandra Stan are instant musical match in their new single ‘Home Alone (Macaulay Culkin’. The song pays homage to the film from 1990 and is used to bring about the joy Parker felt watching the movie throughout the years. It’s infectiously catchy and Alexandra Stan complements the song with her outstanding voice to bring the production home.
“I want ‘Home Alone’ to send good vibes to whoever listens to it & as much as the OG movie did over the years – really feels like the planet needs some happiness delivering music!” -Alex
Parker co-wrote the song while busily engaged at a writing camp, where he coincidentally by fate met Alexandra Stan. The two artists on their own have renowned backgrounds in the music industry. Parker being well-seasoned producer and sound designer, while Stan’s singing career has garnered millions of plays across all streaming platforms.

Over the last number of months, ‘Human’ has been captivating crowds everywhere with John Summit using it as a secret weapon within his sets. Now, sharing it with the rest of the world, ‘Human’ issues his masterful production techniques incorporating groove and percussion-driven elements with rolling basslines. John has become renowned for his use of infectious vocals and in ‘Human’ he nurtures an emotive use of lyricism that reflects vulnerability as a human being.
“I’ve been getting really into songwriting lately, rather than making just club tracks, and I feel like this track really displays both of those strengths for me which is why I’m so proud of it. When I first played this track at Club Space in Miami (even when it was just an early version) the reaction was insane, and I couldn’t believe it. People have been begging for this record ever since and I can’t wait to release it!” – John Summit
John Summit’s mark on the dance scene has been nothing short of monumental and ‘Human’ is assured to continue him on his upward trajectory. Listen to “Human” now on Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud, and more.John Summit · Human (feat. Echoes) Share0Share0Share0Share0

Yesterday, fans of the Chicago Bulls pinched themselves a few times when Armin van Buuren suddenly graced their team’s NBA game with a huge guest performance. It shook the stadium in both unmistakable magnitude and surprise impact, but the fact that Armin van Buuren dropped by seemingly unannounced does become less unexpected when you factor in one of his latest tracks, ‘Sirius’. Attentive listeners of Armin van Buuren’s recent collab with Canadian artist AVIRA may have noticed that the track is a rework of The Alan Parsons Project’s iconic track of the same name, which was the anthem of the Chicago Bulls in the ‘90s. And that led to the five-time #1 DJ playing the single live during the Chicago Bulls’ home game against the New York Knicks at the United Center.
‘Sirius’, the guitar parts of which were rerecorded by Armin van Buuren’s brother Eller, naturally took center stage in the Dutchman’s performance, but it wasn’t the only track that supercharged the venue’s ambiance. The Grammy-nominated DJ and producer also played his globally renowned hit ‘Blah Blah Blah’ and his recent collab with The Stickmen Project called ‘No Fun’, which got released on Amsterdam-, New York and London-based record label Armada Music past Friday.
“Last night felt like a childhood dream come true, as I’ve been a longtime fan and also followed the recent Netflix series about Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls”, Armin van Buuren says. “It was a great honor to do a special halftime show and I’m still buzzing from the performance.”

Dreamstate is so close, we can hear the soaring synths and ethereal vocals from our couch. The set times took longer than normal to surface, but the circumstances that led to the delay are totally understandable. Several DJs had to cancel and replacements were found rather last minute. While some may be saddened by the visa issues or public health restrictions that may have stopped their favorites from making it across the pond, a comment on Facebook said it best: “I like Trance and there is still a lot of Trance on the lineup.”
Now that the schedule is finally out, you may be looking for a way to fill the holes in your plan. Here are some artists we think will be worth your while tomorrow and Saturday. You can add them into your schedule and listen to more music from them on the Insomniac App.Estiva vs. Fehrplay (Day I/ The Void / 11:00PM)
Two titans in the progressive trance scene will come together on Day I to bring the energy up to 11 before Grum’s Deep State set at the Void Stage. Estivas record bag just got a shiny new toy; his Tempus Delirium/Tide EP on Colorize, which joins the several other tracks of his from the label’s Colorscapes Volume 3 mix compilation. Fehrplay has a whole slew of new tracks over the last year from his label Mood of Mind to drop, as well as some brand new music on Anjunabeats. One ID that’s coming soon to Above & Beyond’s imprint saw its debut during their 450 set.
Nifra (Day I/ The Dream / 6:00PM)
One of the most active Quaranstreamers of 2020, Nifra is an artist who has built a strong profile over the years she’s been active on Markus Schulz’s Coldharbour recordings. Recently, she’s tied the bow on the second of her own “Follow Me” mix compilations, in which she’s featured new music from herself, Markus Schulz, Fisherman, Dave Neven, and several others. Following some uplifting goodness from Ferry Tale, her set is bound to bring in the night on the Dream stage with flair.
Alpha Portal (Day I/ The Sequence / 1:00AM)
While Ace Ventura can’t make it to Dreamstate, his spirit will endure in he and Astrix’s collaborative effort, Alpha Portal. The psytrance duo’s last release “Omnia” was a mesmerizing track driven by animal noises alongside their signature Psytrance sounds. Their catalog has been slightly more quiet over the last year, meaning this coming weekend could see an ID or two rear its ugly head.
Elysian (live) (Day I/ The Dream / 9:00PM)
Elysian is the collaborative effort of two producers(Maor Levi and Ilan Bluestone) and one vocalist(Emma Hewitt) who will see their world debut on the Dream stage. There have a strong handful of releases out now on Anjunabeats like Moonchild and Little Stat, giving them a nice catalog after just 2 years in business. As one of the only sets with a live performance, the show is bound to be one of the most unique.
Aly & Fila (UV Set) (Day II/ The Vision 1:00AM)
To make up for a drop in the Vision’s lineup, Aly & Fila were booked to do a special second set to wrap up Day II dedicated to their more deep and progressive sounds on FSOE UV. The sublabel has a treasure trove of releases from the likes of Paul Thomas, Kamilo Sanclemente, Fuenka, and several others. The two have dazzled crowds with their UV-style sets for a while, dropping both releases from that sublabel and venturing into melodic techno from the likes of Artbat and Marsh. As strange as it may seem to end the weekend with smooth Progressive Trance, anyone at the Vision on Day II is in the hands of a sophisticated DJ who will know how to land the plane on an emotional weekend of music.

Banc of California Stadium, the host of artists such as Kygo and RÜFÜS DU SOL recently, is now adding ASOT1000 to its list.
The world’s biggest trance festival came back this October, hitting Moscow and Amsterdam. A State of Trance is making a few more stops before it hits Los Angeles in April. The festival will “turn the world into a dance floor” at Banc of California on April 9, 2022.
The announcement came today through their social media, but tickets are not available. There is no information just yet on when they will go on sale. The site still does not have tickets open for other ASOT1000s occurring in 2022 before LA, but we are sure that they will notify fans once they become available.

Otherwise, be sure to check their socials and webpage for updates on when tickets will go live. Until then, you can tune into A State of Trance radio to hold you over.

Montreal-based group Tanuki project is back with a brand new studio album that encompasses raw emotional sounds as a sonic journey of humans’ development from hunter gatherer into the artificial intelligence age.
