The first single to be taken from his forthcoming debut artist album, “Frozen Ground” reunites ilan Bluestone with British singer / songwriter Giuseppe De Luca. Since joining Anjunabeats in 2011, ilan has been at the forefront of the evolving trance sound. With an ear for hooky instrumentals, organic chords and dance floor minded productions, the likes of “Big Ben,” “Spheres” and “43” became euphoric moments in DJ sets for acts such as Above & Beyond and Armin Van Buuren.
A prolific touring artist, ilan has headlined the Anjunabeats North American tour in 2016 and 2017 as well as joining Above & Beyond at Madison Square Garden and Sydney’s All Phones Arena.
The follow up to ilan and Giuseppe’s breakout hit “Bigger Than Love”, “Frozen Ground” was debuted during Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 200 show in a sold out 13,000 capacity Ziggo Dome.
For Giuseppe, inspiration for the song came after he joined ilan on stage at EDC, “There’s something about witnessing a sea of people gathered together to feel something that really helps to warp the borders of reality. I had this Brechtian idea of a specific sound, that when heard, would snap the listener out of their everyday veneer and allow them to connect with who they truly are. On Frozen Ground, I feel that sound, forever.”

While Coachella weekend two concluded a few weeks ago, we’ve just been greeted with a pleasant live set surprise. To close out the second weekend, Rüfüs Du Sol stopped by the DoLab stage to play a surprise DJ set for the massive crowd.
The DoLab stage was consistently packed on both weekends, and it is no surprise why. With the potential to see surprise guests like Rüfüs Du Sol, as well as Skrillex, who played a surprise set the evening before. Typically performing as a three-piece live band, Rüfüs’s rare DJ set is jam packed with booming house tunes including their masterpiece “Innerbloom.” Those who were lucky enough to be camping out at the DoLab stage when Rüfüs arrived experienced quite a treat. You can check out the hour and 10 minute set below, and believe us, it’s worth your time.
