Summertime is slowly but surely kicking in, and that means we’re getting to highlight more and more festival live sets in addition to those incredible club shows. We’ve had Brazilian brothers Cat Dealers hit Lollapalooza in their home country, and lots of trance’s finest sent sparks flying at A State Of Trance 1000 in Los Angeles. April 2022 has been a joy to behold, these were the best dance music live sets.

Around the release of recent single ‘Stronger’ with HRRTZ and their rework of Robbie Rivera’s classic ‘Funkatron’, Cat Dealers hyped up the crowd of Lollapalooza Brazil in signature fashion. Not a full live set this time around, but the recap is definitely enjoyable as well for those who can’t get enough of the Brazilian duo.
