Just when we thought festival season was coming to an end, we now have a reassuring hope to gear up for our beloved music fests. Summer 2012 marked an insane schedule of worldwide music and art festivals and we never wanted it to end. But now (while some of us are enduring the winter season) we have The BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico as an excuse to plan a little getaway.
In it's sixth year, the BPM Festival is set to take place from Jan. 3-14, a totally necessary ten days of music madness. The fest will feature day and night showcases and will be a global gathering of highly sought after DJs and producers. The Phase 1 of the festival will include Carl Cox, Sasha, Nicole Moudaber, Luciano, Marco Carola, John Digweed and many, many more.

Last year, when legendary film maker, meditational guru, and coffee bean brewer David Lynch signed onto Rob Da Bank's label Sunday Best to release his first musical single, fans of the artist didn't flinch. Known for his surrealist works such as Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, this 13-time Academy-Award nominated producer is no stranger to sound. Along with composing the themes for many of his movies, Lynch debuted his singing talent, providing vocals for two tracks in his most recent film, Inland Empire.
With bluesy, guitar-scapes influenced by the likes of Elvis and Sparklehorse, Lynch's dreamy, strange and hauntingly beautiful musical productions parallel his surrealist vision as an artist. Such adjectives have proven to be excellently adaptable to electronic music. The two singles Lynch released early this year, "Good Day Today" and "I Know," were remixed by electronic music icons Sasha and Underworld and drawn the attention of Coldplay, Bassment Jaxx, and Boy Noize.
