Splash House 2022

By Krish Narsinghani

360 Magazine ventured to the SoCal desert for the year’s hottest pool party craze, Splash House, held in Palm Springs, CA. This year’s lineup featured house music faves and 360’s ones to watch like Kito, Walker & Royce, Chanel Tres, Diplo and more. For lodging, the team stayed right in downtown at Hotel ZOSO, an eight minute walk away from the main stage hotel party at The Renaissance. Throughout the weekend, shuttles drove guests between The Renaissance (featuring 400 rooms with great views) the other two pool party destinations, The Margaritaville (pyramid stage with front row views from the pool) and The Saguaro (colorful party playground).

The three-day fest kicked off with an Afters Party at the Palm Springs Air Museum with Duke Dumont headlining. Talk about a welcome! Spanned across the inside and primarily the outdoor areas of the museum, guests were surrounded by historic aviation, various drink sponsors and spotlit by the dessert stars. Handcrafted festival-inspired cocktails were served at bars for GA and VIP. The 110 degree weather had cooled down in the evening and made for a perfect set with familiar tunes. Dumont brought the hype with his original singles, Ocean Drive and I Got U. The dance with the devil icon DJ built up the crowd with wild drops in front of an airplane that painted the sky with colorful LED lights.

Saturday and Sunday were filled with pool parties needed for the heat. Splashers came decked out in festival gear mixed with sexy swimwear. The fits slayed by the diverse crowd flying in from all over the US, with a majority driving in from the surrounding areas. Everyone was ready to celebrate the start of the summer with stellar music, particularly the evening sets by Walker & Royce, Dombresky, Yung Bae and Chet Porter. Walker & Royce killed their set with their reminiscent SoundCloud mixes featuring some techno drops amping up the fans. This bled into the night with Dombresky’s performance who tore it up with harder spins and trippy lights. The crowd couldn’t resist raving poolside – truly a sight to see them splashing in sync to the rhythm of the bass.

Splashers main point of conversation was centered around electronic R&B Splash House newcomer, Chanel Tres, who dropped it down at Hotel Saguaro. Other performances that mesmerized the team included sets by Shallou, Roosevelt, and Hayden James. Household name, Diplo, made waves at The Renaissance pool deck on Sunday evening. This grand finale closed out an unforgettable weekend. The desert brought heat but the Splash House concerts were on fire. Overall, the weekend left guests exhausted, but more than anything, eager to grab tickets for the other Splash House destinations this year. Fore more info, visit the site at www.splashouse.com.

YVONTI × MVRE

Electric Dance music phenomenon YVONTI has caught the attention of countless for their distinctive take on concealing their identity. Though mask mandates have slowly been lifted in the year 2022, YVONTI keeps themselves hidden by wearing a mask. That’s right; this artist’s true identity has been kept completely secret.

So, why exactly do they do it? Why did this choose this route for their career?

YVONTI decided to hide their identity to take a stand in opposition to societal norms, forcing audiences to throw away preconceptions revolving around race, gender and sexuality. In hopes to remind audiences that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, the true matter at hands matters is the music that is being produced. An artist unlike any other that we’ve seen modernly, YVONTI continues to break boundaries.

Adding in the likes of Swedish Dance Pop Music producer/artist MVRE, we see the two powerhouses collaborate on YVONTI’s latest single “Looking For Me” with a fresh remixed track. The track is full of modern, reimagined pop and dance music influences, showcasing the duos true mutual power.

MVRE, too, stands up for what is truly important to him through his musical endeavors. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, MVRE has continued to voice how he often grew up with no other artists inside of the Electric Dance music category that he truly connected with. Speaking on such important topics has cemented himself as an advocate within the musical realm.

The 360 team had the opportunity to chat with both YVONTI and MVRE about their artistic careers.

When speaking with YVONTI, we were able to learn more about their reasoning behind the choice to conceal their identity, their musical inspirations and so much more. Let’s dive in.

Q: When did you know that you wanted to pursue a career in music?

A: Music has been a key part of my life for as long as I can remember. In my teens I discovered Electronic Dance Music and fell in love. After that I started producing and realized I wanted to pursue a career in music.

Q: What artists do you look up to the most?

A: I feel quite connected to bands like The Beatles when it comes to my message but musically my inspiration comes from artists like Avicii, Swedish House Mafia, Marshmello, among others.

Q: Tell us a little more about your decision to mask your identity as an artist, and when did you make that artistic decision for your brand?

A: I believe that many uprising issues in the world revolves around preconceptions about colour, sexuality, gender, etc. and I’ve seen it affect the music industry as well. I want people to judge me for my music not judge me for the way I look or the way I act. People are different and if there was more acceptance around the differences there would be fewer conflicts. Strong forces are clearly trying to polarize our society and have so far succeeded since friends/families now can become enemies solely based on different political views. Though I understand that emotions are powerful in questions like these, it shouldn’t ruin those important relationships. I want to be a force to counter the polarization that is connected to preconceptions by letting people judge my music not my person. My plan is to reveal my identity in the future to prove my point.

Q: What type of artist would you describe yourself as? What genres are your favorite to create for?

A: My roots come from the EDM genre but recently I’ve enjoyed producing more pop-like music as well as hiphop.

Q: What does music mean for YVONTI?

A: When I was young, music took me to another place where I could escape reality for a while. I believe that many people feel the same as me, an example is when we’re on a bus or plane and we plug in our headsets and listen to music to escape the less entertaining reality. It’s a way to ”capture the moment” even when the moment isn’t the most enjoyable one. In these situations (and everywhere else) you can choose music after your current mood in order to make yourself feel the way you want to feel. Music is powerful, it can help people in all kinds of situations and my goal is to play a part in my listeners life by creating music that connects them to their emotions.

Q: Will YVONTI’s identity ever be revealed?

A: As noted above I will reveal my identity in the future and if you pay attention you might notice when I start dropping clues on who I am.

Q: What’s next for YVONTI?

A: We’re soon revealing my next release which I am really excited about and more news will follow shortly after. Stay tuned!

360 then got to speak with MVRE about their early beginnings, what LGBTQ+ representation truly means to them and about diversification in the electronic music scene. Let’s take a look at what they had to say.

Q: What was it like growing up in a small town with a lack of diversity and inclusion?

A: I guess you never think of it much as a kid cause all you know is your hometown, but as I got older I slowly started to realize that I didn’t relate that much to the people around me and that there were a few too many that I didn’t share views or values with. Anything that stood out in any way wasn’t really received or accepted particularly well amongst (not all but) most people. I do love my hometown and growing up there, but as with all small towns, however charming, people have a tendency to become cut off and conservative in a way. It’s very sheltered if you don’t actively venture out to see and experience “the real world”.

Q: Did you admire/look up to any artists while growing up that have influenced your artistic career?

A: I think Blink 182 were my first idols going into my early teens and pop punk was the first genre that I really fell in love with. I think I picked up a lot of my way of playing guitar from pop punk, something that I’ve carried over into my EDM productions. I always try to incorporate at least some guitar! Justice was a huge inspiration for getting into electronic music and still holds a special place in my heart and I’ll never forget the first time I heard Swedish House Mafia or Skrillex. I think that speaks a lot for how varied my productions can be, I really take inspiration from most music I like in some way.

Q: When did you decide to pursue creating dance pop music? Did you grow up listening to the genre?

A: No, not really. Like I mentioned, I got into Pop Punk early and from that more Punk and Metal as I started to play in bands. It wasn’t until High School when I heard Justice and similar acts that I started to dabble in making electronic music, though I knew nothing about how to do it. At the end of High School I had gotten into more House music and Dubstep as well and I had my first few DJ-gigs at small clubs. I practiced my productions and my sound started to slowly move towards the Dance Pop-ish sound it has today and 10+ years later here I am, still learning haha! MVRE didn’t come around until around 2017, which was when I decided that I wanted to get more serious about my music.

Q: How important is it for the youth, specifically LGBTQ, to see themselves in the people that they look up to the most?

A: I think it’s very important! It’s about feeling validated, that you belong and knowing you can achieve your dreams, the way you want, just the way you are. Seeing someone “like you” that you look up to can mean a lot.

Q: Do you think that the electronic music scene is making steps towards diversification, or do you think that there’s a long way to go?

A: Yes I do, I think that it’s moving in the right direction. You see more female DJs and artist-producers now than 10 years ago, and more LGBTQ representation too. The mainstream EDM scene is still very “straight-male” dominated, but again, I think it’s moving in the right direction. The more diversity in any genre or field, the more vibrant and meaningful the experience can be for everyone and we all learn and grow from it.

Q: What does electronic music mean to you?

A: I think it’s such a wide and interesting span of sounds, emotions and expressions. You can go deep and vibey, dark and distorted, uplifting and melodic and everything in between. To me I think electronic music is both freedom and constraint at the same time. I can express myself really freely and genuinely, but I also want to make you move, to dance, and that keeps me grounded in a way.

Q: What can we expect from MVRE in the future?

A: A lot of new music, I’m really excited for the projects coming up! Also it would be really fun to get out and start playing shows again. Nothing is in the books yet but who knows what the future holds!

Splash House 2022

Acts To See At Splash House 2022

By Krish Narsinghani

With Summer quickly approaching, festival goers are eager to see their favorite acts perform live post-pandemic. House music lovers in particular are geared up for this year’s Splash House in Palm Springs, California. This pool party paradise lasts for three days and features some of today’s hottest DJ’s and music artists. While headliner Diplo is always a must-see act, 360 are keen on seeing Chanel Tres, Kito, and Walker & Royce to name a few. 

Chanel Tres

Artist, producer and DJ, Chanel Tres, has paved a new path for groovy house tracks mixed with hip-hop and R&B influences. His newest self-produced album, “refresh,“ speaks volumes to his skill and innovation as it features funky dance instrumentals, different than some of his past projects. Recently witnessing his set at the Coachella Soho House party, you can trust that he’ll be causing some ripples at the pools. Get ready to bump to something unexpected once you get a taste of his Chicago house sounds infused with classic West Coast rap.

Kito

Kito started learning how to produce using FruityLoops and got her kickstart on Diplo’s label, Mad Decent. Her 2021 banger, ‘Recap,’ features R&B duo VanJess and Chanel Tres, and was at the top of all our dance music playlists. Fans will surely be hype to hear it live along with other familiar favorites like ‘Bitter’ plus her diverse mixes. Mashing genres and culture from her gigs around the world makes Kito’s futuristic pop sets something worth watching. 

Walker & Royce

The dynamic duo that is Walker & Royce have been producing their emotive, subdued and groove-heavy deep house since 2011. Fans can expect the ‘Role Models’ to bring their futuristic sets to the desert. From Holy Ship! to EDC Las Vegas, they’ve played an array of the top festivals. It’s exciting to see what they have in store for the show as they haven’t released new music lately and fans are eager for what’s to come.

Other artists 360 is excited to check out include Yung Bae and Shallou. It’s safe to say this year’s festival is back better than ever. For more info on Splash House and the rest of this year’s lineup, visit the official Splash House website.

More Festival Announce Info: 

The Summer festival series Splash House has announced the artist lineup for the first of its newly expanded triple weekend season in 2022. Celebrating its ninth edition, Splash House has established itself as a perennial favorite in the summer festival calendar, fusing forward-thinking electronic music, poolside partying, and resort amenities with the desert landscapes of Palm Springs. Splash House is now set to make a return to desert for an expanded three weekends this summer, taking place June 10-12, August 12-14, and August 19-21.

June attendees will be treated to a lineup that reflects the constant evolution of modern dance music, bringing together a mix of industry titans and emerging acts from around the world.

Artists announced for the June weekender include dance music’s most electrifying figures, such as Higher Ground and Mad Decent superstar Diplo, a DJ set from in demand Compton act and versatile beatsmith Channel Tres, and house hitters Dombresky and Noizu teaming up for a back to back set. Top billing continues with a DJ set from Sydney’s triple platinum tastemaker Hayden James, a b2b set from melodic dance producers Manila Killa and Chet Porter, electronica star Fort Romeau and groove-heavy house duo Walker & Royce.

All shades of house music in addition to crossover electronic live acts will be present throughout the weekend, including a mix of household names and emergent favorites. This includes the future-funk productions of Yung Bae, the infectious sounds of Dutch brother-sister duo Shermanology, a live set from emotive indie electronic singer and producer Shallou, bass-heavy house star Hannah Wants, and bonafide Chicago legend Gene Farris. The next generation will come proper to Splash House as well, repped by rising Australian record producer Kito, melodic house and downtempo producer Jerro, and singer-songwriter and producer Pauline Herr among many others.

By night, attendees can experience After Hours programming at the Palm Springs Air Museum while enjoying an open-air dance floor and witnessing artists perform alongside historic airplanes, all backdropped by the San Jacinto Mountains. This location has become a staple of the Splash House experience, while also hosting the debut of Desert Air last December. UK hitmaker Duke Dumont and progressive house favorite Yotto have been announced as the headliners, set to carry the day party into the after party at the air museum.

Attendees will again be spread across three resort venues, the Renaissance, Margaritaville, and Saguaro Hotels, which each have their own distinct feel transporting fans to multiple eras of Palm Springs aesthetic history all within the festival footprint.

It remains Splash House’s style-forward and fun-loving community that makes the event what it is. A hideaway from the urban sprawl of Los Angeles, Splash House fosters an environment fit for music fans, fashionistas, travelers, and those seeking a different kind of festival.

All currently available pass types and hotel package options can be viewed at splashhouse.com. GA passes for the June edition start at $189. Guests must be 21+ in order to purchase.

Sk8’s debut EP drums up themes of rebellion, broken relationships, teenage nostalgia, and the unending need to rage against systems built to curtail his personal light. 

“I wanted my debut project to blend genres and be cohesive for all artists involved. Last Day on Earth really nails that concept and grasps my personal identity.”

Last Day on Earth includes previously released tracks “Girl Next Door (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & DVBBS)” with 9.4M streams globally to date, “Heaven Sent,”  “F*ck Society (feat. Sueco),” “Girl Next Door (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & DVBBS)” and “Pages (Feat. Rook).”

American Songwriter praised “Famous,” noting that, “SK8 effortlessly blends hip-hop and punk into some newly evolved sound,” and Hot New Hip Hop hailed the song as a, “genre-melting experience.”

ABOUT SK8

The 27-year-old moved to Los Angeles from Omaha, Nebraska and linked with the venerable Taylor Gang, first breaking into the mainstream with his gold-certified single, “Like That,” with Jack & Jack and opening for revered rap icons like Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd. SK8 began building a dedicated fanbase of dreamers who related to his message of seizing every moment long before his eventual move to LA. Shortly after founding his own imprint, Alignment, and formally signing a joint venture with Atlantic Records via James McMillan’s ART@WAR, SK8 released his major label debut EP, sk8sounds, which was buttressed by the standout singles “Omme(Feat. Wiz Khalifa),” “XXX” and “Mood (Feat. YK Osiris).” Over a year later, SK8 has turned a new page in his career with his first single of 2021, “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh),” and its associated forthcoming project which finds the rising singer seamlessly blending punk/rock instrumentation with his hip-hop origins, the latest but not last development in SK8’s rapidly evolving artistry. Last Day on Earth marks the rising singer’s first body of work as an alternative/punk artist.

DJ Hardwell inside 360 MAGAZINE

HARDWELL – WORLD TOUR

Nearly ten years on from when he performed one of the most electrifying performances at perhaps one of the most influential electronic music events in history. Dance music pioneer and former 2 x World No.1 DJ Hardwell returned to the stage at Ultra Music Festival to make history with undoubtedly the most anticipated return show of 2022.

In Autumn 2018, after more than a decade of playing the biggest festivals on the planet, Hardwell announced he would be taking a sabbatical from touring. So his emphatic return on Sunday night, his first official show since his concert with the Metropole Orkest Symphony at the Ziggo Dome back in October 2018, was unsurprisingly a moment for the history books. Playing a surprise set on the main stage, closing out the festival’s weekend, the 150,000 capacity crowd excitedly greeted Hardwell’s return. Whilst online, his performance also broke Ultra’s numbers via the live stream, with fans tuning in from around the globe, all eager to watch Hardwell’s first official live set in some 3.5 years.

Revealing a new show and new sound, alongside announcing a 24-date world tour supporting his new artist album, Rebels Never Die, Hardwell used his headline slot at Ultra over the weekend to mark a new era in his career. This momentous occasion during Ultra not only served as Hardwell’s first show back but a chance for him to ignite the attention of fans worldwide. Always a leader, with a quest to evolve, not repeat. Hardwell’s new 14 track solo album, released on his label Revealed Recordings, represents a critical point in the musical shift for one of electronic music’s biggest known stars.

The brand new Rebels Never Die world tour is a large-scale production concept that will give fans a unique multi-dimensional experience to witness Hardwell perform live back on stage. Throughout 2022, the Rebels Never Die album tour will see Hardwell on the road with already 24 dates booked on the biggest stages across Europe, Asia, North and South America.

For millions of fans worldwide, Hardwell’s shock announcement from touring back in 2018 came as a huge surprise. After more than a decade of chasing his dream and at the peak of his career, Robbert van de Corput, better known as Hardwell, chose to take a step back, to move out of the spotlight. Stepping away from a journey that bore over 120 x singles, 80 x remixes, 1 x artist album, 11 x compilation albums, 2 x documentaries, 2 x arena world tours, countless international headline performances, and more. Leaving fans uncertain if they would ever get to see Hardwell on stage again.

On Sunday, during the closing night of Ultra Music Festival, in the beautiful city of Miami, Hardwell once again gave the fans what they wanted – putting an end to the rumours of his retirement. Quashing any belief that his passion for electronic music was no longer burning bright and firmly answering the question of how does one of dance music’s biggest titans reinvent a peerless career of such impressive magnitude.

Arc Festival

For its 2021 debut, ARC Festival conjured the spirit of house music in the birthplace of the genre. The event united scenes and connected communities from around the world in a way that felt distinct to the creative history of Chicago. In 2022, ARC returns to the city on Labor Day Weekend with an expanded three day event and has announced its world-class lineup of movement leaders from around the globe.

ARC’s first edition offered a festival experience previously unknown to Chicago dance music fans.

The result was a city-wide vibe that extended into premiere venues by night, earning the attention of the industry and leaving those out of the loop longing for ARC’s return.

Some of electronic music’s biggest stars will take center stage including the inimitable Carl Cox, a special performance from Adam Beyer, Cirez D, songstress of the international techno movement Charlotte De Witte, Motor City icon Carl Craig, and UK mainstage originator Fatboy Slim.

Billing pushes into the avant-garde in 2022 with the Chicago debut of eclectic after hours maestro Ricardo Villalobos, Life and Death icon DJ Tennis, the deep and dark melodic sounds of Ann Clue, and The Other Side label head Maher Daniel.

The pinnacle of modern house remains a focus at ARC, as the show welcomes giants like Gorgon City, Chris Lake, Claptone, Get Real, Eats Everything, Justin Martin, and Vintage Culture. Melodic shades of house will also be on full display from the likes of Lane 8, Nora En Pure, Ben Böhmer, Boris Brejcha, and Gioli & Assia.

In accordance with global demand, some of the international techno scene’s most sought after producers and selectors will bring the hard hitting sound to ARC. Italian leader Joseph Capriati makes his Chicago return alongside ENTER’s Richie Hawtin, Brazil’s ANNA, Palestine’s Sama’ Abdulhadi and Enrico Sangiuliano rounding out the truly global affair.

Chicago house music remains the lifesource of the festival, the easel on which the city’s modern sonic history has been painted, and its unmistakable spiritual gift to the world. Fashion icon and midwest musical genius Honey Dijon will grace the ARC stage for the first time, alongside storied mentor of the Chicago sound Derrick Carter, Queen of Chicago house DJ Lady D, Farriswheel’s Gene Farris, Green Velvet of Get Real, Godfather of House music Chip E., fellow longtime veterans Ron Carroll and Mike Dunn plus next generation riser Kryptogram.

Spanish party outfit Elrow will make its return to ARC, bringing its renowned psychedelic production and outrageous surprises to Union Park in full force. Elrow’s signature stage design, performers and hijinx have made it one of the most celebrated brands in the world, touching down for bespoke events annually in Barcelona, Ibiza, New York, London, Dubai, Miami, Las Vegas, Sydney and many more key markets.

ARC will once again extend beyond the music, creating a cutting-edge experience that mirrors the culture and artistry of its host city. Attendees can expect curated production elements and art to guide them between each of the four immersive stage environments. The event will also act as a showcase of Chicago’s culinary prowess, offering an elevated and distinctly local event.

These efforts will be led by the Auris Presents team who bring collective decades of professionalism to the fold across their independent endeavors. ARC fans will also be treated to intimate after parties across Auris and ARC partner venues RADIUS, PRYSM and Concord Music Hall with others to be announced.

In conjunction with the announcement, the band have shared a new single and accompanying music video for “Redlight,” an obsidian club banger featuring a stunning vocal performance by the legendary Sting, recreating one of the most classic refrains from his storied oeuvre. The new song was preceded by other album singles “It Gets Better,” “Lifetime (feat. Ty Dolla $ign & 070 Shake),” and their collaboration with pop auteur The Weeknd “Moth To a Flame.”
