CDM welcomes new contributor Liz who's going to allow us to live
vicariously through her and make believe we're in sunny south Florida. Here's the latest on the Ultra Music Festival lineup:
for the seventh annual event, now an official Winter Music Conference
closing event, is unbelievable. Timo Maas is will be performing in the "Be Yourself" arena – Need I say
more? The Crystal Method will be back at Ultra for the first time since
their only Ultra appearance in 2002. Also on the Soundstage will be a
live set by Moby but I'm most looking forward to seeing Rabbit in the
Moon who kicked some major butt at Ultra 2004. Rabbit in the Moon will
not disappoint with their live performance art and electronic
Paul Oakenfold, the headliner for last year, will be playing a sunset
performance followed by two hours of Tiesto. Tiesto is currently ranked
#1 in DJ Magazine's worldwide poll, not to mention a personal fave.
Paul Van Dyk will be closing the show for the 7th straight year. He's
the only DJ to do so and is set to end the festival's day with a
special seven-year Ultra Anniversary set. Hundreds of DJs in beautiful
downtown Bayfront Park, now let the sun shine at Ultra on 26 March
2005. See you there.
…of course there's a sick after party if you can't make it to
bayfront, Sasha and Digweed at "Carry On" in the American Airlines
Arena. Sasha will be creating a 100 percent digital experience using
MAVEN – his custom built controller, an Apple laptop and Ableton's
awesome Live software. Look ma, No decks!
