Twenty-year-old remix master Special Features will take the stage this Saturday at Electric Beach, bringing his massively explosive yet pleasingly harmonious tracks to New York City’s EDM audience. The London-producer Eden Anderson has remixed everyone from Calvin Harris to Deadmau5, taking the crown when he won Dada Life’s remix competition with his progressive-pop remix of Happy Violence.

This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
