From being an opening DJ duo three EDC’s ago, to today, you could say Firebeatz has definitely come a long way with their musical career. The dutch pair stormed onto the music scene in 2008, creating a name and a brand for themselves instantaneously. With energetic beats, and some of the best remixes out, Firebeatz has had high ranks on many festival lineups across the world. This was no different for Beyond Wonderland Bay Area, where the pair wowed fans with one of my favorite sets of the weekend.
Beyond Wonderland Bay Area took place at the infamous Shoreline Ampitheatre Sept. 26-27. While the event ended early(11pm Saturday & 10pm Sunday), it still drew in massive crowds and went off without a hitch. The event was sprawled out over the grounds at the Shoreline with three massive stages, intricate art installations, and your Insomniac performers wandering through crowds. Beyond Wonderland featured names including Arty, Calvin Harris, G Jones and more. We were also lucky enough to have two EPIC artists take the stage, Zima and SNR.

Dance pop gods Years & Years have released a special new video for “Desire” created entirely using Artificial Intelligence technologies. The video–which premiered late last week on TechCrunch–uses artificial neural networks and machine learning based on Google’s “Deep Dream” open source code which allows computers to “imagine” and “dream” based on information it has already learned.
The overall result is a stunning visual that conjures exotic locales and sweeping views of coastlines and forests. Vocalist Olly Alexander said the band was “fascinated and intrigued (and kind of terrified in a good way” by the concept of using A.I. to execute the video. “It’s exciting to be part of this cutting edge technology and we hope our fans enjoy the visuals as much as we do,” said Alexander.
