In the midst of gearing up for his nationwide “Road to Ultra” tour, Fedde le Grand has somehow managed to squeeze in enough studio time to birth his brand-new electro-gem remix “Glowing.”
A rework of Nikki Williams’ track, “Glowing” is the punchy, progressive dance-floor dynamite we’ve all been craving. Composing around the song’s powerhouse, soulful vocals, le Grand has sprinkled on his signature pounding drumchords and peaking hi-hats for a turn-it-up track that’s sure to blow out speakers.
A sea of white clad ravers of all kinds set out to Brooklyn, New York on the weekend of Oct. 26th for the European born event, Sensation Innerspace. Gracing major cities like Amsterdam, Oslo and Belgium, the monumental event was the first of its kind to hit the States and it made shockwaves as the first dance music show to christen the Barclays Center.
On Saturday, upon entering Barclays, the subways and streets were filled to the brim with the masses of fans donning their all-white-everything apparel, all in amazing spirit of course. In the main arena lied an unbelievable stage set up. From the all white lotus flower acropolis that hosted the rotating DJ booth to the extreme production elements to the sound system, Sensation was bound to leave an incredible and successful mark on New York that night.

Maxfield: You recently performed at EDC LV. What’s your impression of Vegas?
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
The bad news: Last year the festival was at Bicentennial Park, a significantly smaller venue than this year’s Bayfront Park. There was little to no cellphone connection available, probably because I was sandwiched in a mass of 100,000+ people. I can’t speak for the new venue’s cellphone abilities, but with an additional 50,000 people, I’m assuming the same problem will present itself. Your best bet is to set up sporadic meeting spots amongst your friends throughout the day, in case someone in your group gets separated.
