As if this month couldn’t get any crazier here in AZ, André Tegeler, more commonly known as Moguia will be in Phoenix this weekend. We covered him back when he dropped his album Mpire, and also saw him live at Beyond Wonderland. I can easily speak from experience when I say he is still one of the most underrated artists in the scene, as he was one of my favorite shows I’ve been to. If you like electronic and progressive house this is your show.
When: This Friday May, 18
Where: Wild Knight Scottsdale, Arizona

Sooo for those of you who didn’t get a chance to go, I am terribly sorry. Beyond Wonderland KILLED it this year. Words cannot describe how epic the scene was. We start our 5 hour journey to San Bernardino from Phoenix AZ… 5 hours isn’t too bad. Shitty part? RAIN. RAIN AND COLD. Did that stop us though? NEVER!! We will never give up on the pursuit to hear some kick as electronic dance music!
Swirling lights everywhere, fire breathing metal sculptures, dancers dressed as little ducks, sheep, and other crazy trippy characters. It was impossible not to feel warm from all the love that was pouring out of this event, you could barely tell it was only like 40 degrees outside. It was also impossible to decide who to go see. It was an incredible talent filled line up on every stage and it was so hard to choose, but we did our best! Front and center for my favorite Norman Doray, Moguai, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, Hardwell, ATB, Arty, Gareth Emery, and yes Armin Van Buuren. Here are a few of my favorite pics from the show! Try not to miss out on what of the best events of the year next time!
Norman Doray killed it!!
Mad love for Hardwell
ATB Showing his love
The man who everyone was waiting for … Armin Van Buuren
Moguai. If you haven’t heard the name by now, learn it and remember it. The track title Mpire actively foreshadows what’s to come with this German artist that was quickly snatched up by Mau5trap records awhile back. That’s right Moguai has got an empire in the making and in my opinion has been keeping Deadmau5 afloat in the water for some time now. What’s enjoyable about his sound is that it is strangely reminiscent of some older Mau5 records; cleverly blending multiple layers while producing a powerhouse feel. I’ll probably be reposting tracks I like when the album comes out on Beatport January 30 so stay tuned! Oh and buy this song on Beatport if you so choose.
