Organisers of Lost Paradise have completed the electronic line-up for the upcoming 2022 edition, adding more than 30 new artists to the already stacked list!
The main electronic headliners are still Peggy Gou and Jamie XX, with other notable names (most of which had already been announced) including Mall Grab, Ben Bohmer (Live), DJ Boring, KINK (Live), HAAi, TSHA, CC:Disco!, Heidi and Flava D among others. Check out the full list lower down.
The 4-day camping festival is set to take place through Dec 28 – Jan 1 in Glenworth Valley, NSW.
Regarding the upcoming edition, organisers said: ”After a 3 year forced hiatus, we have never been more ready to return to Glenworth Valley to create our own little slice of alternate reality to share over the new year period.”
Lost Paradise is known for being passionate about nature and sustainability, with its location home to horses, flora and fauna, plus a beautiful waterway that roams through the site. Let’s take a deeper dive…
Festival-goers can look forward to 5 different custom-built stages at Lost Paradise this year. These include Arcadia, Lost Disco, Paradise Club and My Mum’s Disco. As we’ve come to expect, organisers attention to detail here is second-to-none, with each area completely unique in its branding and design, etc.
To best explain this, check out these photos on their website. As they explain: ‘’the idea is to craft hidden pockets around the site that are home for ‘destination’ experiences”.
With a diverse programme of activities including yoga, talks, workshops, healing arts and indigenous experiences, Shambhala is a world unto itself. This year will see the likes of Dr Karl, Simon Borg-Olivier, Mimi Elashiry, Luen and many more to provide you with a dose of hositic healing, stimulating workshops and activities.
Discover something new, expand your mind and stimulate your body with activities running day through night.

Offering a diverse range of market stalls, Lost Village is the hub of Lost Paradise. It’s the perfect place to revive and refuel before bringing in the New Year, combining shaded areas, communal long-tables and the much-loved container bars for ice-cold refreshments as you chow down on gourmet festival fare.
Foodies will adore Lost Village with its mouth-watering lineup of pop-up food trucks and stalls. Find burgers, home-made dim sum, Japanese street-food and southern-Indian delicacies alongside authentic wood-fired pizza, gelato, vegan and biodynamic fare.

Watch The Warehouse Project's new behind-the-scenes documentary. The short 12-minute film coincides with the start of the 2022 season... The post WATCH: The Warehouse Project release new 12-minute documentary film appeared first on The DJ...
The Warehouse Project has released a behind-the-scenes documentary to coincide with the start of the 2022 season that began earlier this month (10th September).
The 12-minute film, entitled ‘How The Warehouse Project changed clubbing forever‘ takes an intimate journey through the iconic clubbing brands history so far, beginning with its early inception at Boddingtons Brewery in 2006 to the legendary underground car park on Store Street, right up until present day at the 10,000 capacity Depot Mayfield.
As well as insightful reflections from the founders Sacha Lord, Sam Kandel and Rich McGinnis, the short doco includes interviews with DJs & artists including Kerri Chandler, Bonobo, Hot Since 82, Annie Mac, Jamie Jones, Four Tet, Gilles Peterson, George Fitzgerald, Jayda G, Denis Sulta and more.
Shot over the last 4 years, the film covers the struggles of the pandemic, and (in their own words), ‘’hopes to document a few key moments behind the scenes during the last 17 years in Manchester’’.
Watch How The Warehouse Project changed clubbing forever on Mixmag’s YouTube channel here below:
In case there’s any tickets left when you read this, you can check out the full calendar breakdown for the current 2022 season of The Warehouse Project here.

Australia’s longest-standing music, arts, lifestyle and environmental festival Earth Frequency is back for 2023. Get ticket info inside... The post Earth Frequency Festival is all set for 2023 edition next Autumn! appeared first on The DJ...
Australia’s longest-standing music, arts, lifestyle and environmental festival Earth Frequency is all set for the 2023 edition next autumn!
From its origins as a small landcare party in 2005, Earth Frequency has become a staple in the Aussie festival calendar – or as organisers describe it, ‘’one of Australia’s foremost transformational gatherings.’’
Festival-goers can expect a mixture of live and electronic music, performance, visionary art, workshops and lectures, a family and kids space, a food and markets area, and overall positive community vibe.
The 4-day camping festival will take place at Ivory’s Rock, Queensland from 12 – 15 May.
We pulled this cool ‘’rave-y’’ clip from the 2022 edition earlier this year:
Also check out the latest aftermovie from 2021 (2022 wasn’t available when we checked):
The music: Typical lineups include a wide range of music styles ranging from live bands, to original electronic producers and DJs, with an overall focus on independent, creative musical expression.
Expect to hear a solid dose of Techno, Bass Music, Reggae, Progressive Trance, Hip-Hop, Psytrance, Dubstep, House, World Music, Drum and Bass, Folk, Funk and Down-Tempo in a 4-day mix of music that will not only satisfy all tastes but also push boundaries.
Market stalls: The Earth Frequency Market Place is positioned at the centre of the festival and is a thriving hub of food, art, fashion, jewellery, crafts and information.
The marketplace provides a diverse sensory experience of carefully selected artisans and caterers, but it is also a bustling social experience, especially in the later hours of the night once the 3 big stages close down and it’s time to have a meal and reconnect with your friends.
The food stall selections prioritise quality healthy options for food and drinks, catering for all dietary sensitivities. Locally based handmade and ethically produced wares are given preference in the vendor selection process, to ensure the markets at Earth Frequency match their core values, whilst providing a truly unique market experience.
Dedicated family area: The ‘Family Realm’ is a large, shady area in the centre of the festival dedicated to providing a safe space for families to play, rest, create and learn together.
To boil it down, the area is exploding with colour, music, craft, dance, circus, movies and various games, offering huge amounts of fun for the whole family from toddlers to their grandparents.
Frequency Village: Frequency Village is a cultural village with a focus upon transformational workshops, healing, speakers, panels & experiences. The village is designed to raise the frequency of festival-goers through conscious content & evolutionary experiences.
Check out an inspirational panel, catch an evolutionary speaker, immerse yourself in sacred sounds, learn a new life skill, get a massage, participate in yoga daily sessions, and more.
Performance: Earth Frequency hosts a wide range of performance art each year as a key aspect of creating an unforgettable festival experience. This includes regular favourites such as the main stage fire shows, the indigenous welcome to country and opening ceremony, as well as roving performers, special stage shows and random acts of spontaneous theatre.
Visionary art: Earth Frequency is aligned with the emerging visionary art movement. Over the past few years, visionary art has risen to the forefront of the transformational festival experience worldwide.
This movement is particularly focused on exploring themes of spirituality, consciousness, connectivity and personal and planetary transformation. Visionary art merges many vital and current ideas into a medium of technical brilliance and exists at the cutting edge of human creative expression.
Décor: Starting with the canvas of a lush outdoor setting, a diverse range of artists and crews come together to create an immersive and magical gathering space. From shade structures to recycled art, lanterns and hanging art to domes and yurts, form and function meet up in the most creative and unique ways possible.
You can take a deeper dive into this stuff on their ‘’experience’’ page here.
At the time of writing, early bird tickets were on sale, priced at $330 AUD (super early bird has finished), with separate pricing for 14 to 17-year-olds and payment plans available. Grab those over at TicketBooth.
An impressive variety of camping add-ons are also available that includes bunkhouses, deluxe camping and wow tents. Visit their website for more detailed ticket information.
The festival takes place through May 12 – 15, 2023 @ Ivory’s Rock in South-East Queensland. Just be warned, it usually sells out months in advance.
Earth Frequency Festival is a 4-day music, arts, lifestyle and environmental festival based in South-East Queensland, Australia, with a strong focus on arts, education, healing and community spirit. It was established in 2005 and attracts around 5,000 festival-goers each year.
The festival is located at Ivory’s Rock Conventions and Events in Peak Crossing: a beautiful outdoor venue with top-notch facilities, comfortable campgrounds, conveniently located less than an hour from Brisbane and just 20 minutes from Ipswich.

This was Richy Ahmed’s cool & funky house set from Creamfields North last month!
As the UK’s oldest and most prestigious electronic music festival, as usual, the event featured some the best DJs on the planet. It took place through 25 – 28 August 2022 over Bank Holiday weekend in Daresbury, Warrington.
Enjoy the set!!
Richy Ahmed spent his formative years immersed in various aspects of electronic music culture; first as a raver, music fan and promoter then as DJ, producer, A&R and label owner. As a result he is a canny and astute operator, with a deep underlying passion for music and people, and an equally intuitive understanding of dance floor fundamentals.
Originating from South Shields in the North East of England, Richy has spent over 15 years channelling his broad experience into cultivating genuine long-term integrity. His sterling reputation and warm, friendly demeanour has allowed him to inspire a new generation of British house producers and DJs, and in doing so built the foundations of a long-lasting legacy.

This post has everything you need to know about the DJ record pool BPM Supreme in 2022. We've also got an EXCLUSIVE coupon code inside! The post BPM Supreme review: Everything you need to know in 2022! appeared first on The DJ Revolution.
With a friend’s 40th birthday coming up, I thought it was a good opportunity to do an updated 2022 review the popular DJ record pool, BPM Supreme.
If you do decide to sign up, we’ve got an exclusive affiliate offer for our readers – so don’t forget to use coupon code ‘DJREVREVIEW’ to get 25% off your first month!
Note: This review post assumes you already know what a DJ record pool is, and how they work, etc. If you want this explained click here.
Based in the U.S., BPM Supreme is surely the most well-known and most used record pool on the market …by actual working DJs.
As you’d expect from one of the market-leading DJ pools, their library is updated daily with the latest promotional tracks from the various record labels they partner with. They have tons of exclusive remixes, edits and other versions that can’t be found anywhere else.
Due to their broad music library, which spans from the 70s through to today, BPM Supreme is best suited to open-format DJs such as commercial club DJs and special event DJs, etc. And whilst they don’t specialize in underground & electronic music, they still perform quite well in this area …which I’ll touch on in the conclusion.
Both of BPM Supreme’s plans offer unlimited downloads. For perspective, some of the leading competitors charge upwards of $50 USD per month for full feature access, and for unlimited downloads, etc.
Standard plan: $19.99 US per month ($9.99 for the first month).
Premium plan: $29.99 US per month ($9.99 for the first month).
Note: Use promo code ‘DJREVREVIEW’ to get an additional 25% off your first month on any plan.
|Features included:||Standard $19.99 p/m||Premium $29.99 p/m|
|HQ Audio Streaming||NO||YES|
|Access Download History||NO||YES|
|BPM Originals||Exclusives||Hip Hop / R&B|
|Dance Music||Remixes||Pop / Mainstream|
|Country||Rock / Alternative||Reggae / Dancehall|
|80s & Back||90’s||00’s|
As they’re based in the U.S., you can see the various American holiday categories…
|4th of July||Afrobeat||Alternative||Christmas||Cinco de Mayo|
|Country||Dance||Dance Pop||Dancehall||Deep House|
|Disco||Drum & Bass||Dubstep||Electro House||Electronica|
|Freestyle||Funk||Future Bass||Future House||Grime|
|Jersey Club||Latin Pop||Moombahton||New Year’s Eve||Nu Disco|
|Nu R&B||Nu Wave||Pop||Progressive House||R&B|
|Reggae||Remix||Rock||Soca||St. Patrick’s Day|
|Tropical House||Twerk||Valentine’s Day|
|Quick Hit||Short Edit||Extended||Radio Edit|
The website looks great, with an intuitive user interface and simple navigation menus. It also has day/night mode along with other customization options that improve the overall user experience.
As far as music files go, they carry high-quality MP3 files (320kbs) which can be easily exported to the leading DJ software applications such as Serato, rekordbox, Traktor and Virtual DJ. There are no FLAC or WAV files unfortunately, although that’s pretty standard for most DJ pools.
No complaints with regards to the downloading experience and general navigation, with everything right there where you’d expect (or want) it to be. The ‘track preview player’ at the bottom of the screen is intuitive and works great.
The key menu items on the top navigation are New Releases, Trends, Playlists, Curated Sets, Scratch Tools and Genres.
Once you’ve clicked into one of the main track areas (either New Releases, Trends, Playlists or Genres), the filtering function on the right-hand side will appear. This allows you to filter your search in granular detail – either by genre, version, key, BPM or relevance.
This ‘Trends’ tab is great if you want to get a quick overview of what tracks are trending; either for that day, week or month.
As you scroll down, it’s then broken down into the key umbrella categories for the site (listed in the chart earlier) – so BPM Originals, Exclusives, Hip Hop / R&B, Dance Music, Remixes, Pop and so on…
Also on the main navigation, the ‘Curated Sets’ are professionally created (shorter) setlits from various brands that they partner with, such as Boiler Room, for example.
Obviously you wouldn’t replicate these exactly at a party, although similar to the trends tabs, they’re another great way to get inspiration based on all sorts of different moods and genre-sets. They’ve got loads of these and they’re updated regularly.
The ‘Playlists’ section I really like. This would be a massive time-saver for any special event DJ …and for wedding DJs, etc.
In addition to special event lists, here you’ll also find the top 40 charts, genre-specific lists, festival-specific lists, AI-powered lists based on your download history, ‘classics’ lists – you name it!
Note: playlists are only accessible with a premium subscription.
The Scratch Tools menu is an exclusive collection of scratch samples, sounds, and breakbeats …all curated by legendary turntablist, DJ Qbert.
Regardless of what plan you’re on, users can download 10 unique Scratch Tools (audio files) created specifically for scratching, with each one containing either a string of sound FX samples or drum loops.
If you’re likely to use the service a lot when traveling, you won’t be disappointed with their market-leading mobile app! In short, the user experience is excellent, and it’s easy to create playlists on the go and put tracks into crates for a later download.
You can also keep up-to-date with the latest DJ/producer and music news associated with the platform if that’s your thing. Just bear in mind, your feature access in the app might vary depending on your subscription level.
BPM Latino is BPM Supreme’s sister website. It’s basically a one-stop-shop for the latest DJ-ready Latin music. Unless you play to Latino audiences regularly, it’s not something you need to worry about, and you would need a separate subscription to download.
They also have a separate sample pack website for music producers called BPM Create, which you’d need to buy credits for.
When you log in to your main account with your BPM ID (this is once you’ve been approved, details below), you can access all 3 websites and browse around as much as you want without downloading.
From a music perspective, BPM Supreme has everything any mobile or special event DJ would ever need. The library is huge.
As I touched on earlier, whilst they don’t specialize in underground/electronic music (and it’s definitely not a one-stop shop if that’s all you’re looking for), they do have their bases covered in this area.
When I searched for a bunch of new-ish electronic tracks that I’d ‘’Shazamed’’ in recent months, they nearly always had it. They also had plenty of tracks that were doing the rounds in the Beatport charts.
In conclusion …as an all-rounder record pool to support your needs as an open-format DJ or a relevant music industry professional, BPM Supreme is undoubtedly one of the best options on the market. It’s competitively priced, and the user experience is excellence.
Whilst you still get unlimited downloads on the standard plan, you wouldn’t get access to ‘playlists’ or your download history, which is definitely desirable if you’re using the platform regularly. Put it this way, if I was gigging once a month or more (or just doing a shitload of music curation), I’d definitely get premium for the extra $10 bucks a month!
On the other hand, premium certainly isn’t a necessity, and the restricted features on the standard plan ($19.99 a month) are all non-essential.
Once you sign up and get approved – this typically takes 72 business hours at the most – you’ll receive your “BPM ID”. This gives you access to the interface where you can preview tracks etc before actually subscribing (no downloading, obviously).
At that point, simply enter your payment information to get full access and download freely from the platform!
Visit their website here and use our exclusive promo code ‘DJREVREVIEW’ to get 25% off your first month on any plan. This setup/walkthrough is great to familiarize yourself with the interface…
Both plans on BPM Supreme offer unlimited downloads’, either $19.99 for standard or $29.99 for premium, which is great value if you ask us – especially considering some of the leading competitors charge over $50. At $9.99 for your first month, it’s also one of the cheapest to get started.
BPM Supreme carries tracks spanning from the 70s through to today, which is great for open-format DJs such as mobile and wedding DJs, etc. Their library is updated daily with the latest promotional tracks that can’t be found anywhere else, and they also have a decent electronic catalogue as well.
You get unlimited downloads regardless of which plan you choose – standard or premium. However, some of the features are restricted with the standard plan, such as access to playlists and your download history for example.
This is how they define it on their website: ‘’Users must be qualified agents in the music industry, specifically working DJs, remixers, producers, artists, or another title fitting of what we define as agents in our industry’’.
