DC producer Lindsay Lowend, a member of Kastle's Symbols label, was one of the many electronic artists announced for Lollapalooza this week. Whether or not you had plans to attend that festival though, you can catch him in NYC TONIGHT (3/28) at new-ish club Slake (251 W 31 St, formerly Rebel). Joining him at that show is UK house/garage/pop producer Shift K3Y and Cameron Kush. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Lindsay Lowend recently released the Wind Fish EP and remixed Anamanguchi's "Prom Night." Stream those, with Shift K3Y's recent track "Touch," below.

Speaking of UK house/garage/pop, London duo Gorgon City operate in that realm as well. They're planning on releasing their debut album on Virgin / EMI this year, but ahead of that they put out the single "Ready For Your Love" with vocals from Duke Dumont/Rudimental collaborator MNEK. You can check out the video for that below. (You also may remember they produced a recent Klaxons single.) They hit NYC's Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (3/29) with Kidnap Kid and Jonas Rathsman. Tickets are available.

Rhode Island IDM wizard The Range is also at Glasslands on Saturday.

Modeselektor at Coachella 2012 (more by David Andrako)
Modeselektor

As mentioned, NYC electronic festival Electric Zoo is returning to the recently restored (after Governors Ball damage) Randall's Island from August 30 to September 1. Though much of the lineup is stuff you probably want to stay away from (like Benny Benassi, Tiesto, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, etc), there's also a handful of people worth seeing, including Four Tet, Moderat, Bondax, A-Trak, Diplo, Baauer, AraabMuzik, Skream, Cyril Hahn, RL Grime, Just Blaze, Joy Orbison, and Scuba. Tickets (3-day passes and single day passes) are on sale now. Full lineup at the festival's site.

There have also been a number of official afterparties announced. There's one at Williamsburg's new danceclub hot spot Output each night of the fest. The two biggest standouts are Modeselektor and Rudimental DJing Best Buy Theater on August 31 with Delta Heavy (tickets), and Chicago house vet Cajmere (who also plays Warm Up that weekend) at Cielo on August 30 (tickets).

Moderat (aka Modeselektor and Apparat) finally released their second album, Moderat II, this month, and you can stream the whole thing via a Spotify widget below.

For UK duo Bondax, Electric Zoo and Chicago's North Coast Festival (which a bunch of other Electric Zoo artists also play) are their only two North American gigs at the moment, after they recently cancelled their appearances at Warm Up and Camp Bisco, which they would have played in July. Check out their recent single, "Giving It All," below, or download it above.

The PMR-signed Cyril Hahn will also return to NYC when his tour with Ryan Hemsworth hits 88 Palace on October 5.

Jeff of Passion Pit in Austin in September (more by Tim Griffin)

Passion Pit do a great job of combining pop songwriting and forward-thinking electronic music trends, so when we reached out to their members for a list of their favorite albums of the year, it makes sense that the list has a pretty even split of both of things. The list comes from bassist Jeff Apruzzese and includes the knob-turning greatness of Todd Terje, Disclosure, TNGHT, Scuba, and more, combined with the pop sensibilities of Alt-J, Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, and more. You can check out Jeff's whole list below.

As mentioned, Passion Pit will come to NYC for their largest headlining show here yet on February 8 at Madison Square Garden with Matt & Kim. Tickets for that show are still available.

A list of all Passion Pit dates and Jeff's 2012 Top 10 are below.
