What a year it’s been for MOGUAI, kicking off with the release of his second full-length album ‘MPIRE’ back in January on dance music juggernaut deadmau5’s label mau5trap. This long-player contains a veritable bounty of jaw-dropping material and has produced some simply unbelievable singles, including the massive Beatport #1 ‘MPIRE’, ‘LYME (MOGUAI’s Crushed Lyme Mix)’ and also Tommy Trash’s Club Mix for their collaboration on ‘IN N’ OUT’. In addition to churning out his own works, his remixing magic is continually being enlisted by the biggest and best; he’s delivered his unique twist to singles by American Idol winner and pop superstar Kelly Clarkson, Dim Mak Records kingpin Steve Aoki, and the musical legend that is Moby – to name just a few! MOGUAI also co-produced a new track for one of the biggest girl groups on the planet, Girls Aloud, which is included on their Greatest Hits album Ten called “Every Now And Then”.
His non-stop touring schedule has taken him from the US to Japan and almost everywhere in between, seeing him thrill audiences with his unique style in the finest clubs and most lauded festival lineups on the planet. Highlights of 2012 include 7 shows in 5 days during Miami Music Week that came just after his debut on BBC Radio 1’s illustrious Essential Mix, playing poolside at Ushuaia in Ibiza for Avicii Sundays, a second successful tour of Asia and numerous festival appearances including Beyond Wonderland, Sunrise Festival and most recently at Sensation Germany.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that all this would be more than enough to keep one person busy, but – as we’ve come to expect with someone as dedicated to his craft as MOGUAI – he’s always pushing himself to do more. Throughout the year his ‘PUNX UP THE VOLUME’ radio show has grown from strength to strength and is now on the schedules of some of the best stations for dance music in the world, including 1Live in Germany, France’s Underground FG, Dance Tunes Radio in The Netherlands and USA station iHeartRadio’s ‘Evolution’ channel from the beginning of December.
There’s plenty more too to come from this mix maestro in the coming months as we move into 2013; his collaboration ‘MAMMOTH’ with Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (featured in the Tomorrowland 2012 official aftermovie) will get its eagerly awaited release at the beginning of next year, so be sure to keep an eye out for further news on this release. With a tour of North America through January, once again dance music lovers the world over are being spoilt by the main man MOGUAI.

ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL – the world’s premier electronic music festival – is coming to CROATIA from 12th – 14th July 2013 for ULTRA EUROPE, it was announced in a press conference in Zagreb today [28th November 2012]. Taking place in the city of SPLIT (12th & 13th July) and the island of HVAR (14th July) for the very first time, organizers have also revealed the further news that ULTRA EUROPE will now be housed exclusively in Croatia for at least the next 5 years.
With over 60,000 attendees expected to descend upon Croatia for the debut edition of the annual event next Summer, ULTRA EUROPE will take place at the beautiful Poljud Stadium in SPLIT for days 1 & 2, while the 3rd and final day will see the event hop to the Hotel Amfora Grand Beach Resort on the stunning island of HVAR – just a short ferry journey away. Performances from all 3 days will be streamed globally through UMF TV and UMF Radio.
Besides being the only European edition of the world-renowned Ultra Music Festival next year, ULTRA EUROPE will also be one of the first major events of its kind in Croatia following the country’s expected entrance into the European Union on 1st July 2013. It is also predicted that the ULTRA EUROPE festival will inject more than 20 MILLION EUROS (over 150 MILLION KUNA) into Croatia’s economy over the next 5 years, and is considered to be one of the most important investments in the Croatian tourism and entertainment industry in recent times.
Russell Faibisch – Founder, Executive Producer and CEO of Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide shared his excitement by saying:
“Electronic music is one of the most popular and fastest growing genres in the world, and the Ultra Music Festival has been recognized as one of the leading festivals of that genre. Taking into consideration the highly developed music scene in Croatia and the excellent reputation of Split and Hvar as top tourist destinations, the decision to bring Ultra Music Festival and the incredible experience it has to offer to Croatia – in the form of Ultra Europe – was an easy one to make. We strongly believe that electronic music fans are acutely aware of what Ultra Music Festival represents and will come in great numbers to share this amazing experience in both Split and Hvar this July”.
Adam Russakoff – Executive Producer, Talent Booker and Director of Business Affairs for Ultra Music Festival and Ultra Worldwide went on to say:
“I’m extremely excited about this new chapter for Ultra and our expansion into the European market. The recent boom in music tourism in that region, coupled with Croatia’s expected entry into the European Union in July 2013, makes perfect sense for us from a business perspective. Concerning talent; whilst we’re not yet at liberty to disclose the finer details regarding specific artists for Ultra Europe 2013 at this stage, what I can say is that since its inception back in 1999, Ultra has always prided itself upon programming the most forward thinking, innovative line-ups any festival in the world has to offer. With regards to Ultra Europe, we have whole-heartedly committed to upholding this tradition and I can personally guarantee that this year’s programme will be no exception.”
Joe Basic, director of Adria MM Production – the Croatian partner and co-organizer of the festival – added:
“Ultra Europe will undoubtedly be one of the most important music events in the region in 2013. We are very proud that we as local partners can give our support and host such a reputable event in the cities of Split and Hvar. There is no question that Ultra Europe will make a significant and positive impact on the region as it looks to attract thousands of music lovers to these historical regions each summer for 3 days of truly world-class electronic music and entertainment. I am confident that the beautiful Adriatic Sea and Islands of the area will be a perfect setting for Ultra Europe and will attract many to come and experience all that both Ultra and Croatia have to offer”.
TICKET INFORMATION A limited number of early bird tickets for days 1 & 2 at the Poljud Stadium will go on sale on December 5, priced at a staggeringly cheap €40 (300 Kuna).

One of the finest and most in demand producers around has been asked to create its soundtrack – none other than Dutch dynamo R3hab.
As is fast becoming the norm, R3hab delivers another exquisite cut in his own inimitable style on “A Night In”, setting a rapturous top end against crunching electro. He encapsulates the happiness, energy and most importantly, the bass that is always constant at the festival. Set for release on Friday 23rd November through dance music favourite Spinnin’ Records, this anthem will be available exclusively from Beatport and is the perfect souvenir to take away from what was an epic weekend.
With a whole host of releases and remixes in the pipeline, the remainder of his current North American tour as well as embarking on a tour of Asia at the end of the month to spread the ‘chainsaw madness’, there is not much more you could really ask for from this trailblazing producer and DJ.
