For Your Consideration, While Being at Ultra's 20th Anniversary
Ultra Music Festival

Next weekend will be the 2018 Ultra Music Festival, celebrating its 20th anniversary.

On March 13th, the set times were posted (check bottom of article). Over 80 artists will be performing over eight unique stages. It's right around the corner and its exhilarating and overwhelming, plus, it's during Spring Break for some.

Ultra has been mounting an essence of pure, wild and invigoration of electronic music for two decades. Through its course of supplying all forms of electric dance music genres, establishing record breaking attendance over and over. Ultra will give fans beyond their expectations.

With Flosstradamus, Afro Jack, Armin Van Buren, Rezz, RL Grime, the list goes on, but with the Ultra Mainstage will be the most popular, here will be shared some other acts you may want to consider.

Here are some recommendations/considerations:


Tyler Marenyi aka NGHTMRE teaming up with Slander, the Orange County duo Derek Anderson and Scott Land. Together they will be presenting their single “Gud Vibrations” and on twitter Slander confirmed the duration of their set.

Two hours of Trap and House, guaranteeing this will be one of the best sets of the weekend.

They will be performing Friday at Ultra Worldwide.


Nathan Shaw is Ekali. The Vancouver native has been busy since 2017.Doing a long fall tour in New Zealand, Australia and across the U.S. After that, he hasn’t stop as he will be performing for Ultra and Coachella. Recommending another trap artist, but Ekali is talented and brings diversity in his style. Listen to his single “Blame,” he did with Zhu this past January. You're welcome.

Catch Ekali at UMF Radio’s Brownies & Lemonades on Saturday.

Brownies & Lemonades All Stars

After speaking about Ekali, Brownies & Lemonades is an event group based in L.A. Co-founders Kush Fernando and Jose Guzman booking all sorts of festivities gaining successful growth like having there own stage at Ultra.

Fernando and Guzman have debuted and claimed basically a CVS pharmacy length-like list of Dj’s to several of their events like Ekali, Manila Killa, Jai Wolf and others; glorifying Sound Cloud artists.

Make sure to stop at Brownies & Lemonades at the UMF Radio on Saturday, it will be its own party.


Jackmaster, Eats Everything, Skream and Seth Troxler are J.E.S.u.S. The combination of three British producers, with Troxler being American, it's a melting pot of various styles, personas and different music taste buds.

Quick background: Jackmaster brings the house music, UK garage. Eats Everything brings Trip hop and Bass while consuming some type of food. Skream is basically an exponent of dubstep and was once in Magnetic Man, a successful music project back in 2007. Last is Troxler, contributing more of a minimalism style on his variations in the House genre.

Who knows how this works in this rotation including with the length of the set. It will be a rare site.

Set is on Sunday at the RESISTANCE--Arcadia Spider.

San Holo

Sander van Dijck comes from the Netherlands and has tremendous talent. He’s a DJ, producer, composer, musician and the best part, he will perform on the Live Stage on Saturday at Ultra.

Reiterating how talented this young Dutchman, see him perform a live set in from of thousands will be excellent. Known for remixing Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode,” San Holo does not stop trying to create more music, just follow his twitter feed here.

Paul Oakenfold & Crystal Method

EDM has made milestones over the decades and could not have been achieved without Paul Oakenfold and Crystal Method.

Oakenfold has been DJing since the 1980s, has over hundreds of remixes and received three Grammy awards.

The Crystal Method are part of the pioneers of the big beat genre in the 1990s. The Las Vegas duo, Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland’s music has appeared in several TV shows, films, video games and advertisements.They’ve been a Grammy nominee and their debut album Vegas, went platinum.

So far, Jordan retired in 2017, while Kirkland remains with the moniker, while touring. Hopefully Jordan can make one final performance?

If this boost your interest check our EDM forefathers. Both will be performing Sunday (Crystal Method-Ultra World Wide/Paul Oakenfold- RESISTANCE Carlcox Megastructure)

Blurred Out Artists ???

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
