ULTIMATE STUDIO JEREMY KELSHAW FROM CLOUD CONTROL
Armin van Buuren
IF YOU COULD HAVE RECORDED THE ALBUM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD WHERE WOULD IT HAVE BEEN? We looked long and hard for the perfect cave to record this album in. Everywhere we went had an angle, which made it untenable. ONE DAY WE SHALL FIND THE PERFECT CAVE. Cloud Control’s new album Dream Cave (expected release: 9 August).
AFTER THE GIGS
SONIC BOOM! Our feet are sore just thinking about this. Stereosonic is back in 2013 and it’s bigger than ever before; like, seriously large. Don’t believe us? Believe this: David Guetta, Armin van Buuren (pictured), Calvin Harris, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Above & Beyond, Empire Of The Sun, Afrojack, Boys Noize, Alesso, Dog Blood, Nero, Nicky Romero, The Bloody Beetroots, Labrinth, Bingo Players, Zedd, W&W, Tommy Trash, Krewella, Shockone, Maceo Plex, Ferry Corsten, Andy C, Hot Natured, Solomun, Showtek, Gareth Emery, Robert Delong, I Am Legion (Noisia & Foreign Beggars), Jamie Jones, TJR, Clockwork, Mat Zo, Cajmere, Stafford Brothers, Aly & Fila back-to-back with John O’Callaghan, Giuseppe Ottaviani (live), Flight Facilities, Claude VonStroke, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Matrix & Futurebound, Tommie Sunshine and much, much more. And this year, for something fresh, the peeps behind the festival are taking a leaf out of the Leeds/Reading book, rotating the full festival between two cities over one weekend, the end result being maximum fun for you! Get your weekend party on when the dance behemoth rumbles into your city: Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December, Sydney Showgrounds and Claremont Showgrounds, Perth; and Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 December, Royal Melbourne Showgrounds and RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane. Ticketmaster are offering a presale from Monday 29 July, with regular tickets on sale Thursday 1 August.
WHAT DO YOU DO AFTER THE GIG IS OVER WHEN ON TOUR? We usually hang around and chat for a while with friends and people from the show, go for a skate if we can, and then usually head for the next show that night. Sunsets are touring. Check The Guide for dates.
THIS WEEK’S RELEASES JAY-Z Magna Carta… Holy Grail Universal
CALEX YOURSELF It’s been three years since Calexico last visited Australia and in that time the Arizona group have been keeping themselves plenty busy, be it with touring, collaborations, movie soundtracks, live recordings or straightforward studio albums.

Sydney DJ and videographer Ego is recognised as a true visionary in his field, who has combined art and music in a way that few can match but all can connect with.

Catch a Trip With Ego: Saturday 20 July, Capitol, Perth; Thursday 1 August, UNSW Roundhouse, Sydney; Thursday 8, Oh Hello! Brisbane; Wednesday 21, Karova Lounge, Ballarat; Thursday 22, Eureka Hotel, Geelong; Friday 23, Can’t Say, Melbourne; Saturday 24, Woodport Inn, Erina; Wednesday 28, Apple Store, George Street, Sydney (workshop); Thursday 29, GoodGod Small Club, Sydney; Friday 30, Never Land Bar, Coolangatta; Saturday 31, Beach Hotel, Byron Bay, and Monday 7 October, Redfern Community Centre (Heaps Decent workshop).

THE ONE AND ONLY There are few genuine superstars on the planet today, individuals recognised across every border and cultural divide, individuals that can go by a single name. Beyonce slides into that category more snugly than those one-piece bodysuits she’s made her own.

The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour rolls into Australia playing Tuesday 22 October, Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne; Monday 28, Brisbane Entertainment Centre; Thursday 31, Allphones Arena, Sydney, and Friday 8 November, Perth Arena. Get your tickets from Friday 19 July.
