Fan with Terminal Cancer Devotes One Last Rave to Escape From Wonderland

By William Vance on October 30, 2013



Going to shows, festivals, and events is a way to escape reality for many of us. But this is an escape that most take for granted. It allows us an evening to forget all the hustle and bustle of work, school, and all other of life’s responsibilities. We laugh, love, dance, and take pictures, and at the end of the night we take little strings of beads home, kandi, as a way to encapsulate the nights fleeting memories.
Though it can be hard to truly comprehend everyone’s individual struggles as you look over a sea of smiling faces the struggles remain nonetheless; they range across a spectrum broader than we often take the time to realize. Nothing makes this more evident than a recent and life-touching story to surface from the recent “Escape from Wonderland” event.



Shawn Sage has been attending similar events for years, and had accumulated an arm full of kandi bracelets that where top-full of life changing experiences. Though having shared so many experiences with so many people, Escape from Wonderland was set to be his last. See Shawn had recently been diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer, leaving him with a bleak outcome. Despite the uphill battle that Shawn faces, he still dared to attend a large scale event which had brought so much happiness to his life before.
Moreover, Shawn is an inspiration to all the EDM community as he shares his kandi with a totally unknown stranger. By showing total trust and love and confidence in a fellow attendee, sought out completely at random, shows how much connectivity rests within our community. It is a truly heart-touching moment to read how the person reacted when Shawn approached them.
Not only does it show how much power a single moment can have, but also the effect that this single moment can have on a complete stranger. In the end all we have is a string of moments, and the people that connect these moments together. What brings our own community together in a way no music has before is a passion for not only the music, but also for the community itself. While this particular story is as heart-touching as they come, all of us have the power to touch somebody within our community in a profound way.
At your next festival or show, I challenge you reach out to a complete stranger and touch their life in some way. While our community has received a bad wrap of late due to bad press and unfortunate events, it is stories like these that will always give hope to the world I have loved for so long.

Good guy Mau5

Deadmau5 Stands Up for Fans Against Promotor's High Ticket Prices - EDMTunes

I've been to New City Gas and would pay $100+ for tickets to a good show there. It's freaking amazing and it's worth it. That club is intense in a good way. But the way he got the promoters to drop it to $50, amazing!

This has been blowing up today on Reddit, Digg, Gizmodo, etc. He's a local producer as well!

How Daft Punk made One More Time from a sample they say they never used

One more time. Even if you wear earplugs, turn off the radio and stay away from noisy clubs, you know Daft Punk's song 'One More Time'. It's one of those songs that seems to be inserted into the memory of every human who has existed since the year 2000. Here, EDM producer Sadowick Production reveals how Daft Punk made the song from a sample the French duo says they didn't use. It's quite shocking how easy it was to recreate.

The sample that Daft Punk never credits for One More Time is Eddie Johns' 'More Spell on You'. After you see and hear the step-by-step process of recreating One More Time, it's pretty obvious that Eddie Johns deserves some credit. Either way, it's a pretty fascinating look at making music today.
