The TomorrowLand 2014 Aftermovie Will Make You Wish You Were There

2014 marked Tomorrowland’s 10th anniversary at their location in Belgium. With this, ID&T, the promoters of the festival, figured that they had to go all out. And, they definitely didn’t disappoint.

With over 400,000 attendees, Tomorrowland was up against a challenge of wowing every attendee that came to the festival across the 2 weekends. For festivals like Tomorrowland, the aftermovie is what counts.

Throughout the aftermovie, you’ll see clips from massive performances by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, David Guetta, Armin Van Buuren, and more. Like every Tomorrowland aftermovie, the soundtrack was curated and mixed by DV & LM. TomorrowWorld is just around the corner for ID&T fans, so the madness isn’t over just yet.

Event: Tchami @ The Hoxton, Toronto (Sept.5)

Tchami - The Hoxton- pumpthebeat.com-jpg
Having emerged from the the Fray in 2013, in his Fool’s Gold debut (with a pair of clubhouse tracks : ” Shot Caller” and  “Promesses”) Parisian producer, Tchami – has been leading the future house movement, dignifying himself in the eyes of many concert goers.

When asked what the difference was between future house and house music in which it builds upon in an interview with THUMP, Tchami replied : “I came up with that “future house” thing without thinking it would be important for anyone but me. Basically, future house means “something new in house music.” So whatever goes outside the rules can be future house. It’s up to you to make something personal or to do what everybody else is doing right now”.

Being able to resonate with his progressive perspective, I was extremely excited to see what Tchami could bring to a live performance.  Set to headline at The Hoxton, a venue, known for it’s narrow structure – intimate interaction was a guarantee( forced or not – you decide).

When Tchami took the stage, you already knew that the night was far from over and as I always say – ” Always down but never done”. Bringing heavy treble to his set, you can feel the the flex in the wooden planks in which we danced upon. I was privileged enough to access the stage, and being able to see the crowd absolutely lose it from Tchami’s vantage point was surreal.

Having sampled Don Diablo’s ” Anytime” –  ” House time is anytime and anytime is house time” rang loud reminding us that house may just very well be the remedy that we’ve been looking for. ” Tchami’s set included many of his remixes including  Aluna George’s  “You Know You Like It” and Rob Base & DJ Easy Rock’s “It Takes Two.  Though upholding a mysterious demeanour with the clerical collar and pastoral garments –  it’s a matter of time before Tchami breaks into the sphere of elite Dj’s.

Despite, having to trek home in the pouring rain –  it was impossible to dampen my mood after seeing Tchami do what he does best. And though I’m far from bilingual I’m going to go ahead and say  it- C’est la Vie.

Life Is Beautiful - pumpthebeat.com

First and foremost, Life Is Beautiful is an inspirational company created to help people overcome obstacles and chase their dreamsLife Is Beautiful is a lifestyle event hosted in downtown Las Vegas that’s about to take a huge leap forward with their monster line-up they put together this year. It’s not the craziest line-up but it does feature some top notch players.

Tickets have been on sale for a little while but with a line-up like this, if you have the funds, this is a very attractive festival. It features a great mixture of genres and artists. If you’ve been to any festival already this summer you’ve probably already seen OutKast but a day with Kanye West right after The Weeknd is a perfect day in my book. Not to mention the last day with A-Trak, Skrillex, and then the Foo Fighters. Sounds like a no-brainer – Vegas baby!
