The Great Convergence, The Do LaB’s festival at the foot of the Egyptian pyramids, teamed up with GoPro to produce a sick time lapse video highlighting the event in all its glory. The gathering brought in a slew of high profile acts like Beats Antique, Bluetech, Apparat, and Eskmo (who’s track “We Are All Terrestrial” is featured in the video).
An intergalactic thank you to The Do LaB is in order for this opportunity to join their loftiest adventure yet. What might YOU, Beats Antique, Apparat, the end of the Mayan calendar and the Great Pyramid of Egypt have in common?? Check this new video to get the synapses firing…
Last weekend at Randall’s Island provided another warp into the psyche of American rave with Electric Zoo 2012; the three-day “EDM” bonanza thrown by Made Event has been going strong for four years now, with this past edition being its most ambitious ever. While URB was there in a mostly video-centric capacity (coming soon), we still caught glimpses of what we adored, enjoyed and avoided at the festival. Yeah, we saw the likes of Apparat, Boys Noize, Chris Liebing and Gessafelstein, but we also saw some pretty “mollifying” sights (pun intended). Check out our hits and misses of the Zoo post-jump.

With them, comes a selection of top-shelf electronic musicians, including headliners Beats Antique and Apparat. If the world is really going to end on Dec. 21-22, we can’t think of a better place to be than dancing next to the great pyramids. …MORE
