CRSSD

Today, CRSSD Festival has announced the initial artist lineup for its Fall 2022 edition taking place on September 24 and 25. Located at the scenic Waterfront Park in downtown San Diego, the two day city-center festival will showcase the best and brightest in electronic music with a focus on house, techno, and eclectic live acts.

Making its first full biannual return since 2019 and following up on its Spring 2022 edition, CRSSD’s dedicated base of attendees will again convene at Waterfront Park to experience three stages offering their own unique soundtrack. Music lovers can explore the safe haven provided by Waterfront Park’s heavenly view of downtown San Diego along the Pacific Ocean, complete with unmatched sunset views, splash-friendly fountains, and grassy lawns.

CRSSD continues to deliver on its promise of bringing forward-thinking and world-class artist lineups to the West Coast, once again welcoming all strains of global talent along with next generation risers.

The Ocean view stage will host CRSSD’s live performers with a focus on crossover dance talent. This year’s lineup is headed by electronic superduo Duck Sauce – composed of legendary DJ and producers A-Trak and Armand Van Helden,  innovative genre-crossing beatmaker and superproducer Jamie xx, heartfelt Canadian composer and recording artist Caribou, and UK singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fred again… Billing continues with electronic R&B live duo DRAMA, German supergroup Moderat formed by members of Apparat and Modeselektor, French pop and Nu-disco band L’Impératrice, and KUU – the supergroup of Alex Metric, Riton, and Shungudzo.

All dynamics of house will be on display at The Palms, led by globally recognized Ukranian production duo ARTBAT, Australian tech house king Dom Dolla, UK mainstage originator Fatboy Slim, Area10 label boss and tastemaker DJ/producer MK, and groove-driven house artist Sonny Fodera. A DJ set from world-renowned hybrid live and electronic duo The Avalanches, the modern house flavors of Wax Motif, indie electronic icon and former member of The xx Romy, in-demand collaborator and tech house favorite Biscits, and London-based DJ and producer Deeper Purpose are among the highlights as well.

CRSSD’s commitment to pushing top tier techno acts this fall continues as they invite one of the genre’s most influential figures, ENTER icon and minimal techno pioneer Richie Hawtin to the City Steps. The stage’s four on the floor legacy continues with legendary Cocoon founder and special guest Sven Väth, in-demand Italian headliner Joseph Capriati, genre super-player Reinier Zonneveld, the iconic deadmau5’s Testpilot alter-ego, a live set by heavy-hitting German producer and Herzblut Recordings owner Stephan Bodzin, new wave industrial techno artist VTSS, and BBC R1’s next gen champion Jaguar.

The CRSSD experience extends beyond the stages, with fans able to enjoy craft food and cocktails from a variety of vendors, go for a dig at the CRSSD record shop in partnership with LA’s Stellar Remnant, experiment with new gear with a chance to meet the lineup’s artists at the Tech Center, or explore all Downtown San Diego has to offer before and after the show.

CRSSD will also host After Dark programming across the city in San Diego venues with more names to be announced.

CRSSD is a 21+ festival.

Celeste and MK Release Stop This Flame

Celeste has teamed up with dance music icon MK for the collaboration of the summer. Today, Celeste x MK release a new version of “Stop This Flame” via Interscope.  Celeste’s breakthrough track takes on a new life with the help of MK; it’s a version that you’ll be hearing at nightclubs and festivals, and at barbecues that have turned into heady house parties. It’s an indelible pop song transformed into a dance-floor ready hit.

This is the house music pioneer’s only remix of the year so far.  When MK (Marc Kinchen) heard Celeste’s soulful original, released back in January 2020, he knew he had to sprinkle some of his magic dust on it. The Detroit native was one of the genre’s first superstars when he emerged in the 90s and went on to work with Mary J Blige, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, Beyoncé and more. His team-up with Celeste elevates “Stop This Flame” from stirring singalong into a thumping and exhilarating rave anthem.

MK has been at the cutting edge of dance music for over three decades. Another busy year has seen the prolific producer release his thrilling new single “Chemical” as well as starring in a new global ad campaign for Jaguar Cars. More recently he just announced details of a bumper tour of Europe and North America during the final quarter of 2021 spanning no fewer than 25 dates. MK has made a career out of redefining what dance music can be, amassing a growing pile of platinum selling records and boasting over six hundred million streams.

The Celeste x MK reworking of “Stop This Flame” is the next step on Celeste’s remarkable rise. Her debut album Not Your Muse entered the UK Charts at Number One in February, and the LA-born, Sussex-raised singer-songwriter was nominated for three Brits, as well as BAFTA and Oscar nods for “Hear My Voice,” a track she co-wrote with composer Daniel Pemberton for the Netflix film The Trial of The Chicago 7. No one has quite encountered Celeste as you hear her on this entrancing new version of “Stop This Flame.”
