GLOBAL MUSIC CHARITY IN PLACE OF WAR TO LAUNCH AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 RAVES 2022-2023 SERIES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AREA15 LAS VEGAS

AREA15 to Host Special Performance by Satori & The Band From Space
Thursday, Nov. 10

Music charity In Place of War announces the launch of its 2022-2023 Around The World in 80 Raves global fundraising events series with a special gig featuring Satori& The Band From Space hosted at immersive events and entertainment district AREA15 Las Vegas on Thursday, Nov. 10.

The year-long Around The World in 80 Raves worldwide dance music event series raising funds for In Place of War will kick off at AREA15 in Las Vegas this November. The 80 Raves campaign, which invites global DJs, venues and festivals to collaborate on live events to raise funds for projects bringing communities in areas of conflict together through music, debuted last year. 

The inaugural Around The World in 80 Raves campaign in 2021 included 80 DJs who recorded sets across the world in cities such as Berlin, Ibiza, Kampala, London, Reykjavik, São Paulo and St. Louis. Performances were streamed across various media platforms, including EDM Identity, Insomniac, Resident Advisor and Worldwide FM, while audiences were still largely at home during the pandemic. The 2021 line-up included Adam Beyer, A Guy Called Gerald, Bicep, Crazy P Sound System, Ida Engberg, Jax Jones, Osunlade, Sama’ Abdulhadi, Sasha and Sofi Tukker

The 2022-2023 Around The World in 80 Raves series will celebrate a return to live events, launching with a gig featuring Dutch artists Satori & The Band From Space playing to a crowd at AREA15 Las Vegas, the city’s newest experiential entertainment district offering live events, immersive activations, monumental art installations, extraordinary design elements, unique retail, bars and eateries. 

Funds raised from ticket sales will support the work In Place of War does within the community of Medellín, Colombia, where one hip-hop MC once said to the charity, “We were born to die in Medellín. If it weren’t for hip-hop, I’d be dead,” as cartels murdered 40,000 young people across the city over a 20-year period. In Medellín, hip-hop has united parts of the younger community. Today in the city, In Place of War supports those inspiring young people trying to shape their futures in the face of adversity. 

The charity has been working with a group of social change-makers in Medellín’s Comuna 13 neighbourhood for over a decade via its Creative and Social Entrepreneurial Programme (CASE). One hip-hop artist who completed the course then trained other members of the community to set up a community kitchen during the pandemic. The kitchen has continued to operate long after the pandemic, feeding more than 500 families a day. 

The charity also supports the development of an allotment to provide sustainable vegetables and fruit for the community of Medllín. The local team is now expanding their work into Medllín’s Barrio Pablo Escobar neighbourhood where they have recycled 7,500 kilograms of waste so far and feed hundreds of children each day. With funds raised from November’s Satori & the Band from Space performance inside AREA15 Las Vegas, In Place of War will train 20 female leaders in the Medellín community in the CASE programme to help them establish creative solutions to overcome violence in the area.

In Place of War chief executive officer Ruth Daniel says, “AREA15 is just magical and a wondrous mash-up of experiences and an immersive playground all rolled up into one vibrant space. The venue seemed like the perfect location to celebrate the launch of our next year of Around The World in 80 Raves events. We know that Satori will deliver a killer set to the lucky fans who get to be there on that night, and we hope to engage those music lovers in areas affected by conflict where music really does bring people together.” 

Fans can expect a very special night, as AREA15’s head of entertainment Noah Kessler explains, “Our audience can look forward to a unique, immersive evening as Satori & The Band From Space creates a one-night-only dance euphoria experience for this highly anticipated show in the Portal at AREA15. We’re so excited to be partnering with In Place of War for this event and to support their important work in Colombia by launching the new season of Around The World in 80 Raves with them on November 10.”

GORGON CITY × JEM COOKE – DREAMS

Celebrated British dance duo Gorgon City have released their new track “Dreams” via Astralwerks today. Listen here. The new offering follows latest single “Never Let Me Down” featuring Hayley May, and will feature on their eagerly anticipated third album Olympia which is out this Friday, June 25th.

Offering up ethereal tones and Gorgon City’s trademark arpeggiated bassline, “Dreams” is elevated by its accompanying video, that journeys through an idyllic, paradise island scattered with imposing, Greek statues. Watch the video here.

An album shrouded in Greek mythology, OlympiaGorgon City’s third album, is as grand in scale and ambition as its title suggests. What began in 2019 as a compact, 10-track project has grown into an 18-track opus covering multiple moods and movements. From the sultry slouch of “House Arrest” with Soffi Tukker, to the big-room bridges and drops of the DRAMA, featured on “You’ve Done Enough,” each new addition to Olympia is both a symbol and product of the pair’s unbridled ambitions for what they wanted to be a big record in every way conceivable. The record includes features from an incredible roll call of exciting new talent in the form of Grace Grundy and Aura James, alongside past collaborators Josh Barry, Sofi Tukker and DRAMA.

Formed in 2012, Gorgon City have sold over 10 million singles and clocked up over 1.5 billion streams. While the duo are no strangers to chart success with hits such as “Ready For Your Love,” their sound is rooted deep in club culture and made for live shows. Many songs get road tested in clubs before being put onto an album. The live setting is where the duo truly thrives – 2019 saw amazing sets around the world including Coachella, EDC Vegas and Israel’s Get Lost Festival, as well as sold-out shows from iconic UK venues such as Printworks, Warehouse Project and Tobacco Dock.

The fans’ demand for Gorgon City’s return to the clubs is undeniable. This September, the duo will embark on some of their biggest and boldest shows to date, with the driving force being Olympia.

Pre-Order/Pre-Save Olympia HERE

Renowned British production duo Gorgon City have announced their third album Olympia, due June 25th, 2021, via Astralwerks. Alongside the announcement of the new album, the duo has shared the latest track from the album “Tell Me It’s True.” Listen to “Tell Me It’s True” HERE and pre-order/pre-save Olympia HERE.

Boasting euphoric house-piano, seamless vocal chops, and an ever-evolving bassline, “Tell Me It’s True” is the perfect introduction to their latest body of work. With Kye now residing in the birthplace of house music, Chicago, and Matt remaining in London, the creation of Olympia marked a career first for the duo, having produced the project from entirely separate continents.

An album shrouded in Greek mythology, Olympia is an eclectic and euphoric mix of past and present, it’s a celebration of musical worlds coming together, with 90’s house blending seamlessly with 2020’s finest pop. Olympia is a collaborative piece of work showcasing Gorgon City’s strength in discovering and developing vocal talents that are genre-spanning and varied.

See below for the full track listing.

Talking about Olympia, Gorgon City say, “With this record we’ve definitely gone more clubby and have been inspired by the big shows that we played before lockdown. It’s a bigger sound and lyrically it’s different for us”

This album celebrates themes of escapism and exploration, as social freedom finally feels like a reality. Olympia is a collection of the duo’s work over the last few years, while digging deeper into the sounds, experiences and emotions that have influenced their lives and work. The breadth of music they’ve been exposed to while touring pre-covid informs Olympia’s massive sonic palette.

Formed in 2012, Gorgon City have sold over 10 million singles and clocked up over 1.5 billion streams. While the duo are no strangers to chart success with hits such as “Ready For Your Love,” their sound is rooted deep in club culture and made for live shows.

almost monday × Sofi Tukker

Alt-pop trio almost monday have teamed up with Grammy-nominated Sofi Tukker for the remix of their debut single “broken people.” The track is available everywhere today. Click here to listen.

almost monday (vocalist Dawson Daugherty, guitarist Cole Clisby and bassist Luke Fabry) have already racked up impressive stats with nearly 2 million Spotify streams and over 653k views on YouTube following the release of their latest single “come on come on,” the energetic and genre-defying track “parking lot view” and “broken people,” which was met with praise from multiple indie outlets.

The Kollection called “broken people” an “indie-pop single showcasing Daugherty’s powerful vocal abilities aside groovy guitar licks, disco strings and a rhythmic bass line,” and the UK’s Indie Midlands said, “The Bruno Mars-like pin-sharp funk melds with a cornucopia of sumptuous MGMT-esque synths, “The Indie-rock sensibility remains at its core but it has a layer of good-times and beach-party bristling on top.”

The band tapped Sofi Tukker for the remix to put a throbbing, ‘90s house-inspired jungle pop spin on the track. almost monday’s debut material artfully mines such influences as David Bowie, Gorillaz, Justice, and Prince while revealing the many eclectic elements that inspired them to make music: Cole’s passion for rock (sparked in part by attending countless blink-182 and Foo Fighters shows as a kid), Luke’s longtime love of The Beatles, and Dawson’s childhood exposure to seminal alt-rock bands like U2 and The Smiths.

Sheppard’s ‘On My Way’

Multi-platinum selling recording artist Sheppard is back with a brand-new single “On My Way” – available now via your preferred music platform! Cowritten by John Hume (co-writes with Dean Lewis, Sofi Tukker), the anthemic, uplifting song, which was originally penned as a stand-alone single, earned the band a nod to participate in the show which will select Australia’s next representative at Eurovision 2019! “On My Way” is the ultimate love song as singer George Sheppard explains:

“This song is about someone craving the uncontrollable heat and passion they feel when they are with the one they love. It’s about excitedly making their way to reunite with their lover, wherever that may be in the world.”

“On My Way” is the first new music since last summer’s sophomore effort Watching the Sky (June 8, 2018 via Empire of Song/Decca Records/Republic Records) which rocketed to the top of the charts globally, earning them their first #1 on the ARIA Album Chart in their home country of Australia and hitting Top 10 on the US iTunes Pop Charts. Watching the Sky spawned global smash “Coming Home,” which climbed to #1 on the AIRcharts and went double platinum in Australia while taking over radio charts across Europe and Mexico. The song debuted on US television on the TODAY Show and was featured in American Ninja WarriorAmerican Idol, Champions, and Lionsgate’s hit feature length animated film Early Man.

The band exploded onto the global stage with the massive success of 2015’s “Geronimo” – the RIAA Certified Double Platinum lead single from the band’s debut album Bombs Away. The song rose all the way to #53 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, Top 5 at AAA and landed them on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Today Show, and The Talk. Sheppard have also become mainstays on the festival circuit across the globe, performing at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Summer Sonic, Rock in Rio, Billboard’s Hot 100 Festival, and many more to date.

Sheppard will perform “On My Way” at Eurovision – Australia Decides alongside Australia’s top talents to battle it out to become Australia’s 2019 Eurovision entry on February 9th as they continue their run as Australia’s royal family of pop.
