The next DXBeach, scheduled for Novmber 18, 2016, will be headlined by Dutch DJ-of-the-moment Nicky Romero, with Felix Jaehn, Claptone, Kungs, Lovely Laura/Ben Santiago and Afishal completing this super-sized international bill.
Nicky Romero is the name on the tip of every electronic music follower’s tongue. The man behind smash tracks including his UK #1 collaboration with Avicii ‘I Could Be The One’, ‘Feet On The Ground’ (featuring Anouk), ‘Legacy’ (featuring Krewella) plus solo singles ‘Symphonica’, ‘Toulouse’ and the just-released ‘Crossroads’, Nicky’s production prowess has also led him to remix and create music for Madonna, One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Rihanna and Britney Spears.
In just four prolific years, Nicky’s sheer determination, dedication to his crowd and masterful sound – which he describes as a “seductive blend of progressive house, tinged with electro and acid” – has seen the 27-year-old reach superstar status in record time. He has commanded some of the world’s most revered festival stages already.
Felix Jaehn jets into DXBeach fresh from a huge South American tour. Ever since his remix of Omi’s ‘Cheerleader’ reached #1 on iTunes in 55 countries, the 22-year-old German DJ/producer has turned industry heads for his pioneering yet commercially-appealing music style. His breakout single ‘Ain’t Nobody’ (featuring Jasmine Thompson) was the stand-out dance track of 2015, and his most recent hits include the powerful pop collaboration with Steve Aoki and Adam Lambert, ‘Can’t Go Home’, ‘Cut the Cord’ with Hitimpulse, and the brand new ‘Bonfire’ (featuring Alma).
Bringing both mystery and crowd-captivating music to DXBeach is Claptone (pictured above). The German house DJ describes himself as a “sonic being driven by an insatiable musical desire” and is known best for delivering highly-emotive, spellbinding sets – including hypnotic tracks such as ‘No Eyes’ (featuring Jaw), ‘Wrong’ and ‘Heartbeat’ – at the likes of SW4, Melt and Ultra Music Festival.
Kungs is a French producer having the time of his life. Starting 2016 on tour with David Guetta, the teenage sensation went on to remix ‘This One’s For You’ (featuring Zara Larsson) and spent the summer making melodic waves in Ibiza’s coolest clubs, including Ushuaia and Amnesia. Of course, his biggest achievement to date is ‘This Girl’ – the most unstoppable track of 2016.
Internet sensation and Ibiza sweetheart Lovely Laura will be the sound of the DXBeach sunset on November 18. Backed by her DJ husband Ben Santiago, the soulful saxophonist has mesmerized diverse audiences across the globe with her flawless live performance – tailored to enliven everything from Tomorrowland to Dolce & Gabbana fashion shows, at the designers’ personal request.
‘DJ Mag’ branded Afishal “the most mind-blowing act you will ever see on stage.” Instantly famous following his jaw-dropping performance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2013, Afishal’s EDM sets incorporate his own visual DJ rig, The Tremor, along with the world’s only DJ drums. Playing every single note live, Afishal’s appearance at DXBeach is guaranteed to be a game-changer.
