The Story Behind Groove Cruise’s Founder – Jason Beukema

Having heard much about the wild parties that Groove Cruise was throwing, I was pleasantly surprised to find what a humble and passionate ship they were running a couple years back when I met the team. Not to talk smack about other companies or anything, but it is rare to see a team with such a unified culture of serving and being at such a reachable and personable level with all it’s supporters. Having had the chance to meet Jason on multiple occasions, I could tell that he was the source...



Having known and been Dash Berlin fans for quite some time now, Jeffrey Sutorius of this trio finally sat down with us for an intimate chat during Groove Cruise Miami before some deep house yoga on the decks. He took us down memory lane to how Dash Berlin started, from how they got their name, to how he met the other 2/3 of Dash Berlin (Eelke Kalberg and Sebastiaan Molijn) at the record store he used to work at. In case you didn’t know, the track “Till the Sky Falls Down” came to be picked...


New York’s Adam Scott Making Waves in Trance

Adam Scott has been making waves in the trance scene on the east coast in the last couple of years, with the occasional guest appearance over here on the best coast as well. He has continuously drawn in a big crowd at his residency at Marquee NY and just landed his latest residency at NOTO Philadelphia. You may have spotted Adam playing at massive events like EDC Orlando and Dreamstate, and often opening and closing for the homies Dash Berlin. We got a chance to sit down with this...


Armada’s Rising Star – David Gravell

I was like a kid on Christmas day when I saw David Gravell on the Groove Cruise Miami line up! Sam Feldt, Jochen Miller, and Andrew Rayel were up there, but I had never seen David Gravell live before in the entire 3 years I had been following this legend in the making, so this was my chance! His dark energetic trance with techno influences has created quite the distinct sound, and created much buzz the last few years. Partying with David for 5 days over Groove Cruise was awesome, and he...


CID: The Quick and Humble Rise

The last 2 years has been playing in CID‘s favor, but luck came alongside nothing less than extremely hard work. CID has been dominating, getting extreme support from guys like Kaskade, Galantis, and Don Diablo. He has been touring side by side with these heavy hitters and even having his own headlining shows, sooner than he himself even anticipated. Having his dreams come to fruition the last couple of years, CID keeps his head down and continues to grind humbly. His latest release...


Celebrating Friendship with Chus & Ceballos

When you meet these two you can see how genuine of a friendship they have. It’s no wonder why Chus & Ceballos have been staples on the Groove Cruise. Their contagious smiles, energetic sets with their Iberican sound, and pure kindness make them a perfect fit for the Groove Cruise family. Before I met them, I had the chance to catch their set at 7am. As tired as us Groove Cruisers were after dancing all night, we managed to muster up the last of our energy to keep going during their set. I...


Powerhouse Nifra Continues to Dominate the Trance Scene

We got a chance to sit down with Nifra for part 3 during Groove Cruise Miami. See what she had to say about her very first Groove Cruise experience. We also took a dive into her current wardrobe and talked about her previous “horrible sense of style.” Nifra has been dominating the trance and progressive scene in the last few years, with the continuous heavy support from Markus Schulz. She will also be playing a classic Coldharbour set during Luminosity Beach Festival this year, so make...


Traveling the Nine Skies with Markus Schulz

If you’re a trance fan, then you know the name Markus Schulz. He’s had a long successful career as a DJ, producer, one half of New World Punx, and record label owner of Coldharbour Recordings. I got a chance to catch up with him on The Groove Cruise and preview his next Dakota Project Release, the Nine Skies. I loved sitting there and watching the reactions of all his fans to his latest tracks coming out of this album. It’s based on the nine steps to enlightenment. You’ll learn why he...


Ferry Corsten: From Then To Now

It was amazing to finally get to sit down with the legendary, Ferry Corsten, during Dreamstate Socal. Not only is his music out of this world, but he also happens to be one of the kindest and most genuine souls I’ve come across in the industry. It’s not easy to have achieved so much success over a decade and still not have an ego, but Ferry was exactly that. We got a rare share from Ferry about his highs and his lows as well as his challenges with juggling his career and family. He gave...


Escape with Talla 2XLC

If you’ve never heard of Talla 2XLC and you are a techno fan, then you need to brush up on your history! Considered one of the founding fathers of techno, he’s been very influential in the electronic music scene. If you ever get a chance to hear him live, do it. Talla 2XLC has had many releases over the years, some of his recent releases include “Free Your Mind” and his new collab with Pay and White called “Don’t Stop“. I had the chance to catch up with him at Dreamstate SoCal and it’s...



I got to sit down with RAM for round 2 during Insomniac’s Dreamstate Socal. We first met at Dreamstate San Francisco, where he delivered an amazingly beautiful set at Bill Graham after taking over Super Duper Burger with waves of fans. It amazes me how RAM always takes the time to meet up with fans with open arms whenever he’s in town playing a show. That is why it was no surprise that we all got kicked out of IN-N-OUT during the RAM + Friends + Neon Owl meet up in San Bernardino. We were...


The Future of BEAUZ is at the Main Stage

Prior to Neon Owl’s Dance. Give. Inspire. charity show to support, I got the chance to sit down with BEAUZ for round two. I first discovered these two about a year ago on Soundcloud through their remix of “Great Escape,” by Manufactured Superstars. I reached out to commend them for their extremely distinct sound, put them on for an interview, and the rest is history. These brothers have been pumping out tracks every single week (literally), with their latest release “Future...


A Bass Heavy Journey with Psy Fi

For as many interviews that we have featured on all kinds of cool artists since last year, I’ve never personally written a thorough piece on an artist, until now. I do believe that every once in a neon moon, you find an artist that you are beyond passionate about, and you just can’t wait to share their music with the rest of the world. This past summer, I discovered one of the four most exciting artists I’ve come across in two years. One of four is saying a lot for someone that consumes at...


Neon Owl Interview with Jordan Suckley – Dreamstate SoCal

Jordan Suckley has yet to deliver a less than high energy performance in all the times we’ve seen him. Dreamstate SoCal was no different last month, as he tore up The Vision Stage Friday night after Thanksgiving. We got a chance to sit down with this talented ball of energy before his incredible set. Jordan shares with us the person he looks up to most in the industry, future collabs, favorite artist to work with, to his most memorable moment. We also got deep as he told us about the low...


Paving the Way to Being a Legend – Helena Legend

Helena Legend has started creating the path to being a legend with her versatile sound. Her energy rings through her sets and you can feel how passionate she is about her music. Her musical background has helped her produce some amazing tracks, including “Pasilda” and “Storm“. She recently released her first track featuring her own vocals, “Illusion“. Can’t believe she was hiding that hidden talent! I first met Helena a couple of years ago after her set in Vegas. My jaw dropped when not...


The Sandstorm Continues – Darude

Whenever I get ready to do my interviews, my goal is to always keep the conversation going. I’ve never had someone start the interview with complete silence, I knew that this would be a fun interview with Darude. Whether you have been listening to dance music for a long time, or just got into it, everyone knows the track “Sandstorm“. It is such an iconic track that literally brings smiles to people’s faces whenever it is heard. It only makes sense that Darude took “Sandstorm” and made it...


ARTY’s Artistry – Neon Owl Exclusive Interview

When it comes to being unique, ARTY fits the bill. His music is focused on his creativity and developing himself as an artist. When you listen to one of his sets, you can feel his energy and a sense of who he is. We learn more about how changes in the music scene have impacted what he feels it takes to be successful today and his work with...


Watch the World with Nifra

Being referred to as the Queen of Trance, Nifra is quickly rising to the top with her trance sounds. Don’t let her sweetness fool you, she throws down a set that will leave you asking for more. She sits down to tell us more about being the first woman to play at Dreamstate (NY), having Markus Schulz as her mentor, being a heartbreaker, and her love of making music. Peek our 1st interview with Nifra here:...


Neon Owl Interview with Neptune Project

Neon Owl had a chance to sit down and talk with Dan Willis of Neptune Project on 9/3/16 at Verso in San Francisco shortly before he performed a five hour open to close set for charity withThe Apollo Aid Foundation. It was a pleasure getting to know Dan, learn about The Apollo Aid Foundation, and of course a bit about music. The event itself was wonderful as so many people came to not only hear some great music, including an hour long tribute to OceanLab, but to also support a great...


Behind the Lens with aLIVE Coverage’s Doug Van Sant

I ran into Doug multiple times from coast to coast, through our mutual love of music festivals and Andrew Rayel. I was always that hardcore fangirl he spotted rockin’ my glasses and customized Rayel Family shirt, and he was that stealth photographer always on the prowl for the perfect shot. Our conversations started via Instagram, and then we magically became friends in real life. For any of you that have been following the festival scene, you definitely have seen Doug’s photos featured as...
