Unfortunately I wasn’t at the DMF this year, but there were over 80,000 of you who were! This number far surpassed the goal of 60,000 and exceeded last years numbers by a huge amount.
Another record was broken this year as well – with the amount of recycling that was accounted for. The recycling program that was instituted collected more than 3,000 pounds of recyclables
The festival had approximately 10 recycling tents, staffed with volunteers that collected cans, bottles, and paper. Great Lakes Recycling, offering single stream capabilities, stored and processed all the recyclable materials, and once separated, the recyclables were transferred to a single location for further processing. Way to go everyone – ANYTHING counts.

Sunshine beckons and Sonar calls for Om as we return for our second year at the fabulous La Terrrazza. Last year saw 1,000+ people ascend into the hills just outside the city centre for a show stopping open—air event in the beautiful setting within the fort. Think dancing on the castle ramparts as the sun comes up and you will start to get an idea of our very special Om Sonar party in association with Djdownload.com
This year we welcome three big players from the world of house for exclusive Sonar performances at the Om party. Om’s ambassador of sonic excellence on the UK shores Mike Monday will be topping the bill with his unique selection of underground music plus exclusive previews of music from his forthcoming artist album “Songs Without Words” due out on Om Records in September 2008.
Jesse Rose, Panorama resident & Made to Play label boss is to rock the party with slices of stripped back house & minimal tech moments while San Francisco’s Dirty Bird Justin Martin will be adding his own unique twist to make the dancefloor throb, squelch and swirl. Completing the line-up, Al Velilla; DJ, producer and Om’s superb Spanish resident will get the night moving early doors with deep, groovy house woven with Balearic elements.
Our partners, DJDownload.com, will be hosting an exclusive Mike Monday mix featuring unreleased gems and forthcoming tracks from his album prior to the official release in September to give you a taster of things to come!
>Please note the mix is only available from 19th JuneHERE

May 30th has finally graced us, and all the anticipation leading up to the release of SATC the movie is over. It’s been a global phenomena for months now, and doesn’t make any sign of stopping soon. That’s why we are so fortunate to be gracing the soundtrack to the most talked about movie of 08! It’s the #2 selling album in the country this week, and we’re on it! Check out Kaskade feat.Colette “I Like The Way” out now on the Sex and they CIty Movie soundtrack.
LIVE! On the internet now, watch the second episode of THECRAFT, featuring Chicago’s own DJ HEATHER.
What is THECRAFT you ask?
Have you ever wanted to know, emphatically, what a lyric truly meant, or where it came from? Have you ever wanted to know what the studio experience is like for some of your favorite producers? Each episode of THECRAFT will feature one music maker, in their environment, talking about their creative process – from what has shaped their artistic perspective to how they have evolved into the artist they are now.
Episode two of THECRAFT takes an in depth look at DJ Heather.
DJ Heather, one of Chicago’s top music talents, joins us for the latest episode of THECRAFT! With fifteen years of experience behind her, DJ Heather has risen from the ranks of Chicago’s underground DJs into one of the most celebrated house DJs today. DJ Heather is known for her relentless mixing and programming style and when she’s behind the decks there is not a still body on the floor. As one of the busiest people in dance music today, DJ Heather has toured over 500 cities and is currently the owner of her own imprint Blackcherry Recordings. DJ Heather is an artist who defies conformity, defines quality and continues to nurture her solid skills for soul music of the technological generation.
Picture a quaint evening of family and friends at an intimate club in Hollywood. Colette is doing her thing on the turntables singing away, when through the side entrance comes not just Paris Hilton – but her MTV camera crew for her new reality show “Paris ’ BFF”.
