Ultra Singapore returns this weekend for a weekend of non-stop EDM action and its lineup this year is nothing short of stellar.
Rocking out in the heart of the CBD opposite Marina Bay Sands, Ultra Singapore sees the arrival of several OG acts that have made the airwaves in the EDM scene for many years.
The calibre of the lineup is unsurprising, of course, given Ultra’s global brand and weight. If you’re the remaining few EDM fans who have yet to purchase your tickets, here’s a rundown of notable acts to whet your appetite.
1) Above & Beyond
EDM groups may be hard to come by these days but Above & Beyond are raring to go at this year’s Ultra Singapore. The trio has established themselves as a force to be reckoned with since their formation in 2000 and has headlined almost every music festival you can think of.
In 2016, the group won their first Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording with “We’re All We Need” featuring Zoë Johnston while peaking at #4 on DJ Magazine’s top 100 DJs ranking in 2008 and 2009.
With top hits like “Sun & Moon” and “Thing Called Love”, they are certainly not an act to be missed at Ultra Singapore 2018.
2) DJ Snake
One of the most respected names in industry, French DJ Snake has made hit after hit and he isn’t stopping anytime soon.
If the name doesn’t ring a bell, maybe his hits like “Let Me Love You” featuring Justin Bieber and “Turn Down For What” with Lil Jon might.
Before making a name for himself as a DJ, Snake also produced the highly-popular Lady Gaga album “Born This Way” in 2011.
More recently, the Paris-based producer made the charts with Lauv on “A Different Way”.
3) Steve Angello
Needing no introduction, Steve Angello is the very definition of EDM royalty having been one-third of powergroup Swedish House Mafia.
While the trio may or may not be reuniting again, rest assured that a night with Steve Angello on the decks equates to one hell of a party.
Besides an epic list of discography with Swedish House Mafia including hits such as “Don’t You Worry Child” and “Save The World”, the man has also made a name for himself with solo hits such as “Show Me Love” and “Payback”.
4) Nicky Romero
Dutch DJ and producer Nicky Romero will also be making his way down to Ultra Singapore 2018, flying the flag for a long line of amazing Dutch DJs such as Tiesto, Armin van Buuren and Hardwell as his fellow countrymen.
A constant feature on DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs, Nicky has made headlines since he entered the scene having played at numerous Ultra Music Festivals worldwide, alongside Tomorrowland and Coachella.
Notable hits include “I Could Be The One” and “Toulouse” from 2012.
If you’re looking for a DJ to simply “Take Over Control”, look no further than beatsmater Afrojack.
While the Dutchman made the charts recently with “Dirty Sexy Money”, it’s his earlier tunes such as the aforementioned “Take Over Control” and “Give Me Everything” featuring Ne-yo that will surely send the crowd into euphoria.
Afrojack is also a frequent collaborator of David Guetta and is known for throwing one hell of a party at music festivals. If you suffer from FOMO, you do not want to miss out.
6) Fedde le Grand
If you’ve been around the underground EDM scene over the last decade, Fedde Le Grand must be a household name.
The electro house DJ a name for himself with the absolutely catchy hook from “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit”, not to mention the song’s mildly NSFW music video.
If you’ve haven’t had a chance to watch the MV from 2007, check it out below.
