Recommends: Daniel Wang

Recommends: Daniel Wang

While it's likely you've grooved to Daniel Wang without realising, be it to one of his own productions such as Like Some Dream or Free Lovin' (below) or something released via his Balihu label, the best place to experience the Berlin via New York via San Fran disco mastermind is of course on the floor. Few DJ's manage to bring the level of enthusiasm and joy to the booth that Wang turns up with, and the gentleman is an absolute wealth of musical, lingual, botanical and culinary knowledge to boot. Try his Beats In Space for an audio only introduction, and/or his Red Bull Music Academy lecture from Melbourne in 2006 if you'd like a dance lesson to go with it.

Daniel will be soundtracking the dream sequence at FOR Festival in Hvar with DJ heroes Maurice Fulton, Storm Queen, Mark Ronson, Psychemagik, Erol Alkan, Tiger and Woods, Fort Romeau, Baio, Bok Bok, Tensnake and Ghost Culture, alongside an epic lineup of live acts. Individual day tickets go on sale tomorrow!

Watch: Klaxons - There Is No Other Time

Klaxons released a new single earlier this year, the Radio 1 play-listed There Is No Other Time, and we just got the fancy new video for it. Georgia Hudson (Midlake, MØ) stepped up to the director's spot to create the nightclub meets scenic dream-scape clip! We like it.

Recommends: Haim - Don't Save Me (BBC Radio 1 session)

FOR Festival's stellar line-up is headed up by Haim, a quartet who've spent the last year eliciting not only colossal sales of their debut album Days Are Gone but also comparisons to those untouchable titans of transatlantic pop, Fleetwood Mac.

We dug out this near-perfect live rendition of Don't Save Me recorded for BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe at the tail end of 2012. If the music sounds this sunny in a darkened studio in Central London, just imagine it in a converted monastery on the balmy Mediterranean island of Hvar, Croatia. Or click here and imagine no longer.

Recommends: Jungle & MØ - Waste Of Time (Jungle's ØH MØ Remix)

Refocusing on one of the more overlooked moments of last year. MØ's commanding pop meshing with the ice cool groove of Jungle - two artists who have since gone from strength to strength. We've been so obsessed with 'No Mythologies To Follow', the debut from the Danish singer (pronounced "moo" if you were wondering) that we jumped high for her to play our paradisal FOR Festival in Hvar, Croatia. The former DIY punk will showcase her physical performances of her badass Diplo collaboration 'XXX 88' and the defiant single 'Don't Wanna Dance'.

FOR Festival: Second Announcement

FOR_2014_web 2

FOR Festival is today pleased to announce the second round of performers for the Croatian island festival. Joining the already stellar FOR 2014 line up will be reigning ladies of rock, Haim; the uncategorizable Grammy-nominated, Brit-winning singer Neneh Cherry, performing with RocketNumberNine; UK retro-psychedelic combo Temples; Vampire Weekend's Baio; and hotly-tipped newcomer .

In addition, Erlend Øye (Kings of Convenience, The Whitest Boy Alive) will be performing his very personal History Lesson. Simply Øye and an acoustic guitar, it commences with a series of cover songs, starting from 1962 and continuing onwards, taking on classics from 65, 68 and so on until arriving at the commencement of his own oeuvre in the late 90's, including all his passions and pop music epiphanies up until the present day. It promises to be an intimate, illuminating live set from one of this generation's more unique voices.

Tickets to the 4 day island festival in Hvar, Croatia, are on sale now. With only 2500 tickets available for the weekend, they're disappearing quickly. Get yours while you still can!

Recommends: DARKSIDE - Planet Caravan (Black Sabbath Cover)

Recommends: DARKSIDE - Planet Caravan (Black Sabbath Cover)

DARKSIDE out-smoke stoner rock gods Black Sabbath with their hypnotic ascension of Planet Caravan. Nicolas Jaar's vocal delivery is faithfully effected in homage to young Ozzy's, while their compounding backing textures are really something else.

The cover became a staple of their early Psychic performances (this version cheekily bootlegged from their Maida Vale Session) and is hopefully still part of the set list when Nico and Dave Harrington play at FOR Festival in Croatia, as well as their own Australian shows at The Hi-Fi in Sydney on April 2 and Melbourne's Palace Theatre on April 4 (both dates supported by Movement).

DARKSIDE play this year's FOR Festival in Hvar, Croatia. Get tickets here.
