Summer’s on it’s way and we’re in the market for a compact portable speaker that doesn’t compromise on sound quality that we can take to Ibiza, the park, our gardens…step up the SPACED360. This bad boy is meticulously engineered and powered by patented airSOUND™ Technology. The portable speaker with apt-X Bluetooth creates an immersive, infinite ‘sweet spot’ by using three high powered 2″ neo speakers and three mass loaded bass radiators that are all equally spaced, the resulting forces are balanced, bass response is improved, and cabinet vibration is greatly reduced. The highly tuned system of Spaced360 is designed to wrap partygoers in a 360 degree sound-space. It looks sikk and it’s already been getting some great feedback from a whole slew of djs and producers.

We’re really excited to test this little sound dynamite out – keep posted for a review in the next couple of weeks!

Dimensions festival

There’s nothing like a second line up announcement to give you a kick up the bum into making those all-important Summer festival decisions. Dimensions today let us all in on who else they’ve got joining the party in Croatia at the end of August, and it’s an exciting roll-call…

Daphni | Robert Hood | Ben Klock | Marcel Dettmann | Tama Sumo | Theo Parrish (live and DJ)

They join our highlights from last year Roman Flugel and Move D as well as Motor City Drum Ensemble and Petar Dundov (who we were so looking forward to seeing last year on his home soil but got cancelled due to rain!). Here’s a moody Dundov classic for your listening pleasure…

Luke Vibert

I love Luke Vibert. You always know when it’s a Vibert track. His sound is fun, a bit tongue in cheek and always produced with lots of finesse. He’s got a new album out later this week on Hypercolour titled ‘Ridmik’ which promises to be ‘acid heavy’. Here’s a taster in the form of track ‘Acage’. It’s got energy, bouncy squelchy sounds, elevator vocals and lots of quirky touches. It’s also very pleasurable to watch those birds fuzzing about.
