We’re proud to present the first edition of The Vibe Guide Festival this summer from the 26th– 28th July 2016!
Originally a passion project and a YouTube channel for promoting music, The Vibe Guide evolved firstly into a multi-social media network for discovering and promoting new talent and now into an online magazine. We aim to bring you the very best and latest in music, tech and photography and what better way to do that than by putting on our very own show!
Taking place at the breathtaking Noa Beach Club from the 26th-28th of July 2016. Join thousands of other like-minded partygoers as we escape to one of the greatest locations in the globe.
This summer is set to be one of the best yet & we can’t wait to show you what we have planned for our first ever Vibe Guide Festival.
Welcome to Europe’s hottest summer music festival destination. According to Mixmag, the most popular electronic music magazine on the planet, DJs and music insiders, CROATIA is the greatest challenger to Ibiza’s party capital crown – with wallet friendly approach and freshness of new destination, where music still comes first and everything does not evolve just around VIP bottle service.
Croatia is home of some of Europe’s hottest festivals, such as Ultra Europe, Sonus, Hideout, Croatia Rocks, Hardwell’s Revealed, Fresh Island, Barrakud, Outlook, Dimensions, the Garden and others, with new ones popping out along the Riviera every year.
About Croatian Ibiza
Thomas Jack is an Australian DJ and producer who refers to his summery, laid-back dance tracks as "tropical house." Inspired by deep house as well as acoustic rock and jam bands, his tracks heavily feature live instruments, particularly saxophone, flute, piano, and guitar, and generally have a relaxed, sunny, uplifting feel. His tracks often feature samples of speeches; Jack has noted Charlie Chaplin's closing speech from The Great Dictator as being particularly inspirational to him.
He began using the term "tropical house" somewhat jokingly, but it stuck, and international producers such as Kygo and Klingande soon became associated with the subgenre. Jack began a podcast mix series called Tropical House, which featured guest mixes by Felix Jaehn, Bakermat, Robin Schulz, and others. Jack became well-known across EDM websites for his original tracks such as "Symphony" and "The Final Speech," as well as his remixes of popular artists such as Of Monsters & Men and One Republic and house producers like Adrian Lux.
His busy touring schedule brought him to clubs around the globe, causing Jack to refer to himself as "homeless," but he has spent a considerable amount of time in the United States, particularly in Florida. After devoting much of 2014 to remixes (including his take on Gabriel Rios' "Gold") and live gigs, he released a new single, "Rivers," in 2015.
Following up the global success of a breakthrough track that’s had 22 million YouTube views might come with its own pressures, but Adrian Held and Tobias Rieser, the two laid-back, 25-year-old Austrians who make up Klangkarussell, have had worse jobs.
In person, Klangkarussell are as chilled out as their massive hit ‘Sonnentanz’ (the vocal version of the track, ‘Sun Don’t Shine’ feat. Will Heard, is currently top ten in six countries, and number three in the UK).
In early 2012 Universal signed Klangkarussell and they began working on their debut album. Soon the pair were being asked to DJ at ever bigger and more high profile events, mixing up their own productions with selected tunes in a show that’s smashed everywhere from Pukkelpop in Belgium to the massive Street Parade in Zurich.
And after the album? They’ve already turned their hand to remixes for Laura Mvula and Max Manie. They’d like “to DJ where the sun is shining,” and to collaborate with some of their favourite artists; Jamie xx, FlyLo, Flume, Rat A Tat…. They’d like to eventually build the album into a show with live instruments. Tobias will continue fishing and making beer. They’re both, says Adrian, “putting some effort into taking it all more seriously, but still having a blast along the way.” It seems to be working.
By this standard, Norwegian producer Matoma has certainly done big things in a short amount of time, aggregating hundreds of thousands of online followers, and incredibly, seeing his remixes garner millions of plays in just five months. His standout hip hop meets tropical house single “Old Thing Back” currently has 53 million plays on Spotify.
True achievement, however, is about more than a numbers; it’s about depth, feeling and and that magical symbiotic relationship between the performer and the crowd. In this sense, Matoma, the 24-year old artist born Tom Lagergren, has accomplished something special.
His signature sound is a summer-ready mix of tropical house, breezy funk and classic hip-hop, with influences including Ice Cube, Xzibit and The Notorious B.I.G. While these styles may seem disparate, Lagergren has fused his influences into an infectiously feel good and completely danceable sound, as heard on his remixes and mashups of artists as varied as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Will Smith, Maroon Five and Axwell.
The big time success of Matoma thus far proves that audiences are indeed feeling that love, and loving him right back.
