Beyond Wonderland 2020 to Add 5th Stage, Diplo’s Higher Ground Label to Host New Stage

Wed, 11/13/2019 - 15:23

Insomniac put out some really exciting news that may sway those considering their spring festival plans this early in the game. Beyond Wonderland 2020 is known to feature a variety of musical styles at their stages, but this year their new 5th stage will host a curator we know and love: Diplo. His house music inclined label Higher Ground is hosting a stage at this year’s Beyond alongside stages hosted by Bassrush, Basscon, Audiotistic, Dreamstate, and Factory93. Though Higher Ground is a new part of Mad Decent, the sublabel has already put out bomb releases from Walker & Royce, andhim, Born Dirty and DJEFF.

Following his recent move into country music, prolific hitmaker Diplo is now doubling down on his roots by launching a new house music label called Higher Ground. Named after his recent deep-house inspired EP of the same name, according to the announcement the label is a platform to showcase both established and up-and-coming talent in house music, and a new home for Diplo’s own house tracks and collaborations. It will release “everything from tech-house to deep/melodic house, lo-fi to Afro-infused house, and everything in between.” – Variety

Bakénéko premiere explosive debut single “Remember”

Wed, 11/13/2019 - 15:08

Though LA J-Pop duo Bakénéko revealed their first new single today, they have a wealth of experience with music. Known as B(Brandon) & M(Mai) individually, the two work in the film industry and have songs that see airtime on Amazon Prime TV, E! Network and Facebook Watch. The two have even more projects down the line for shows on Netflix and Apple TV+. B works as a composer and producer, while M does songwriting and sound design. The two resolved to combine their respective talents to form Bakénéko, named after a Japanese yōkai(or supernatural spirit) that resembles a cat.


The duo’s breakout single is Remember, which carries an influence from the stylings of Porter Robinson and CHVRCHES. With its euphoric chords and edgy lead synth/guitar melodies, the production could fit right into a number of festival atmospheres. The lyrics are just as arresting as the beat, with heart wrenching verses in Japanese and a captivating chorus sung in English. The song’s core message revolves around finding common ground and love for one another, despite the inevitable tension that comes from personal conflicts.  M talks about her influences for her songwriting in this new project:

“Until the viral growth of anime, I grew
up shunned by two cultures. Wielding
both languages is me finally embracing
my Japanese heritage and American
upbringing. Both have flaws, both have
wonders, and that’s ok. I’m ok.”

This is a striking start for Bakénéko; we hope to see them on a lineup somewhere very soon. Take a listen to their single below and drop them a follow via their Soundcloud!

The two also promise a load of Yamikawaii escapades via their Instagram and #otaku shitposts via their Twitter.

Man Accused of Stealing 30+ Phones at EDC Orlando This Past Weekend Gets Caught

Tue, 11/12/2019 - 17:27

Most of the people that you encounter at festivals are loving people and spending a great festival spirit. Unfortunately, there are always some bad eggs in there.

This past weekend was EDC Orlando. The festival takes place every year in Orlando, Florida. This year was the first year that EDC Orlando became a 3-day festival after previously only being over two days, which was exciting for everyone. The lineup was great, and a great weekend was in store for everyone.

Unfortunately, there was also a person there phone stealing. The man, Carlos Perez-Hernandez, was caught on Sunday night. A witness at the festival saw him pickpocketing phones from the pockets of many different people at the event and putting them in a black backpack. He pointed out Perez-Hernandez, wearing a tie-dye blue hoodie, to a few officers at the event.

The backpack was heavy and at around 9 p.m., police were called to Camping World Stadium for a report of stolen cell phones. They found 34 phones in his backpack, all which had been turned on airplane mode so that the victims could not call or track their phones.

The officers took the phones off of airplane mode and three people were able to retrieve their phones, while others who heard about it announced on social media that those who had gotten their phone stolen should try tracking and calling it again. He was found near Kinetic Energy Stage, where most of the pickpockets were believed to have happened. Many of the phones were the newest Samsung and iPhone models, which can be worth over $1,000 each.

Perez-Hernandez was transported to Orange County Jail, and charged with grand theft.

A raver by the name of Kaitlyn Gautreau snapped a photo of a few phone cases at EDC Orlando next to the porta-potties that are believed from stolen phones that were taken throughout the festival.

This is what she had to say:

So heartbreaking to see how someone else’s greed by stealing ruined so many people’s EDC experience. We come to these festivals to come together and embrace the music and dumb asses like this who pickpocket then dispose of the cases in the portapotty(making their job harder to clean up quickly) sickens me. So many IDs and debit cards on the ground. This is just a PSA don’t keep your phone in your back pocket AT ALL during festivals. Whenever I see people at festivals with them in their back pocket I kindly give them a heads up there are horrid people who come to these things just to do this. Keep your personal items close. Get a fanny pack or a lock on your backpack. PSA everyone should go to EDC just be aware of your surroundings

Four Loko’s Super-Hard Seltzer With 12% ABV Is Now Hitting Stores

Mon, 11/11/2019 - 19:27

In case it hasn’t already hit your liver, Four Loko’s new Hard Seltzer just hit stores. The sworn enemy of White Claw, Truly and whatever the Natty Light seltzer is called boasts the highest ABV in the game at 12%. While Halloween would have been a dope time to drop this on the world, New Years and Holiday festivities are just around the corner…the perfect time for the hardest seltzer in the universe. Four Loko got famous for being packed with lots of strange things, but this time around, it’ll be huge because of the lack thereof.

“When we first posted about it on Four Loko’s social channels, we had no idea the response would be as massive as it was,” co-CEO of parent company Phusion Projects, Jaisen Freeman, said per a report by AOL. The team decided on the early release to “give customers what they want,” adding that it will boast “more flavor. More ABV. More value.”

Let us know where you’re guzzling this new probably almost tasteless beverage.

And so it begins… pic.twitter.com/a8rIsWgUS1

Cocaine and Molly Are Becoming More Popular Among NHL Players

Thu, 11/07/2019 - 19:26

The Athletic released a large scale report on the prevalent drug use in the NHL, tapping more than 10 inside sources to get a full idea of the hidden use of drugs by athletes. The investigation was spurred on in August when it was revealed that Washington Capitals’ Evgeny Kuznetsov tested positive for cocaine usage in the Spring. After relaying the news, the International Ice Hockey Federation banned Kuznetsov for four years from international play. This news caused the Athletic to launch a large series of interviews to find out what exactly went on behind closed doors.

“At least 10 people interviewed for this piece cited cocaine as the vice of choice among NHL players, especially among the younger set. Molly (a pill form of MDMA, which is also known as ecstasy), was frequently mentioned as a drug surging in popularity as well. ‘It’s really the secret that everybody knows,’ said one recently retired NHL player who still is working in the game.”

Former NHL player Dan Carcillo, who now works as a player advocate, said the use of cocaine and molly is surging because of the “euphoric-type feeling they create.”

“It mimics that feeling when we get on the ice when our hearts are racing and there’s blood coursing through our veins,” Carcillo told The Athletic. “It’s that feel-good drug.”

The article goes on to detail a host of issues involving several NHL players’ experiences with “festival drugs” over the last several years. A 2016 survey on National Drug Use and Health, administered by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, revealed that the number of young Americans who tried cocaine for the first time took a massive jump, increasing 61 percent from 2013 to 2015. According to a player who chose to remain anonymous, alcohol was the only vice of choice before 2011. “It’s not like it’s a hockey thing. It’s a culture thing,” the player said, pointing to the usage rates among the general population as well.

Rage Against the Machine Confirmed to Headline Coachella 2020

Thu, 11/07/2019 - 15:26

Coachella is one of the most well-known festivals in the United States. Put on by Goldenvoice, it occurs for two weekends every April in Indio, California.

The festival itself has a culture wrapped around it; celebrities, influencers, and people from all over the world come to take pictures near the infamous Ferris Wheel and be present for what is always an awesome lineup.

Coachella always lets its lineup drop at some point in January. They never preface when, and then tickets go on sale (for those who did not get them during the pre-sale in June), days later. Many of us have sat and watched that little man walk across our screen, willing him to run so that we get tickets before the festival sells out yet again.

Goldenvoice, of course, knows the artists earlier than January, and does this just for Coachella; Stagecoach, the country music festival put on by the same company the weekend after Coachella, has their lineup drop in October. In the meantime and between time, people sit and contemplate who might be on the lineup, especially when artist tours are announced. If there is a mysterious two week gap, and they may be around the west coast, rumors fly. For the most part however, other than when Beyoncé had to push her headlining off by a year due to having twins, the artists and the headliners are kept hush until THE BIG announcement.

Rage Against the Machine changed that for 2020. The band, who has not played together since 2011, posted their tour schedule up on their social media, and on it were the two weekends in Indio. When people connected the dots and realized what happened, Wayne Kamemoto, a longtime associate of the band just said, “The band’s social media is accurate.”

It’s been a busy two days for rock lovers – My Chemical Romance just announced they were reuniting and now Rage Against the Machine is doing the same, as well as taking the Friday headlining spot at Coachella. Coachella is a mixed genre festival, bringing in rock, EDM, and everything in between to the festival. A rock headliner usually plays Friday. Past headliners have included Radiohead, The Weeknd, Lady Gaga, Eminem, The Gorillaz, Outkast, and The Black Keys. While the leak disrupts the santicty of the lineup drop, many are happy to have a small piece of lineup a little early.

Coachella 2020 Lineup is 95% Complete, Says Goldenvoice CEO

Thu, 11/07/2019 - 15:24

95% is a good number to be 2 months before everyone expects your festival lineup. This especially applies to Coachella; Goldenvoice CEO Paul Tollett was proud to announce this critical news at the Billboard music summit in Beverly Hills. “While currently, right now (my staff) are working on production plans, I’m finalizing the poster,” he said. “We’re pretty much done with the lineup this year, 95%.” There have been several rumors of the booker roster already, with a Rage Against the Machine reunion leading the buzz as they have now been confirmed as well as Megan Thee Stallion, Big Sean, Emotional Oranges.

Other rumored names include My Chemical Romance, Travis Scott, Flume, Lana Del Rey, Coldplay, No Doubt, MGMT, and The Chemical Brothers. Tollett went on to describe a small part of his secret sauce for orchestrating the festival’s famous lineups:

“(Right now), I’m more working on scheduling to make sure everyone gets the right thing. I don’t like to lock in an artist at a set time, because between November and April, there could be a superstar we’ve booked that I don’t even know is going to be a superstar. If I put them in too small of a venue, it’s going to be tough. It’s hard to confirm someone and tell them ‘I don’t know where we are going to put you.’ There is some faith they have to have, and we have a good relationship with the artist community.”

He admitted to checking out the Coachella subreddit to see the fan-created prediction posters.

“There’s so many rumors out there. The (mock) posters, I like looking at them, but they are unrealistic because they don’t have a salary cap,” he said. “When I see them, I think ‘I can never live up to some of these wishlists.’”

Coachella takes place for on the weekends of April 10 and 17th next year, with the lineup poster flooding every social media feed in the world in January. Since it’s confirmed to be 95% done, we can hope for an early Christmas present this year.
