Yesterday, We Rave You started our Ultra Music Festival preview coverage discussing five sets to catch Friday. Today, we continue onto Saturday, March 19th at the festival.
1) Mija (5:00-6:00 pm, UMF Radio Stage) – After famously emerging with under Skrillex’s wing, Mija has been creating quite the name for herself over the past months with her incredible productions and great sets. Check out her recent remixes of Darren Styles’ ‘Come Running‘ and DJ Snake’s ‘Middle‘ to get a feel for her unique sound. Her set seems to be a great way to spend Saturday afternoon by the water.
2) Malaa (6:00-7:00 pm, Ultra Worldwide Stage) – While his/her unknown persona attracts intrigue, it is the music that makes Malaa stand out. Building on the influences of fellow labelmate Tchami, Malaa has continued to bring the heavy bass to the House movement that is sweeping across the world. With recent tracks like ‘Fade,’ ‘Notorious,’ and their stellar remix of Tchami’s ‘After Life,’ it is evident that Malaa is doing to have the entire Worldwide Stage bouncing to the beat.
3) Steve Angello (6:10-7:10 pm, Main Stage) – Steve Angello seems to always have something up his sleeve for big appearances like this. His previous Ultra Main Stage sets have been iconic, ranging from smooth melodic stories to high energy records. In years past, he has unveiled tracks like ‘Payback‘ and ‘Children of the Wild,’ while also showcasing his incredible SIZE Records library. With ‘Wild Youth’ being such a well-received album earlier this year, we are excited to see what the Swede has next.
4) NERO Live (9:30-10:30 pm, Live Stage) – NERO is bringing their live production to Ultra Music Festival. That should be all we need to say about the set. However, if you are not too familiar with the British group, seeing their set at Ultra is a great way to become acquainted with them. Providing some hard-hitting Dubstep blended with House and Drum ‘n Bass influences, all while the soothing live vocals from Alana Watson are provided, the trio should not be missed on Saturday evening. New records like ‘The Thrill‘ will blend with their classics like ‘Must Be The Feeling‘ and ‘Me and You‘ creating a live experience that should not be missed.
5) Carl Cox (10:00 pm-12:00 am) – There is a reason why Carl Cox receives is own stage for not one, but two days at Ultra Music Festival. Carl Cox is an absolute icon in the Electronic Music industry and you must stop by the Megastructure once during the weekend while he is playing. The environment that the British genius creates is electric and draws you in, as illustrated by this year’s preview for the ‘Carl Cox & Friends Arena.’ As if you needed any other incentive to go, this will be Cox’s only US festival appearance in 2016.
Who are you looking forward to seeing on Saturday at Ultra Music Festival?
