The electronic music world was caught completely off-guard today as Flum announced a new mixtape. Just a week after re-releasing his documentary “when everything was new”, the Australian native took to social media to make the big announcement. The electronic music superstar has been on a bit of a hiatus with his last project released […]

Just when you thought it was safe to turn your attention back to other artists for a minute, turns out Current Value is giving the DnB world less and less of a refractory period in terms of time between terrifyingly good releases. His next venture is fast approaching with Far Layer, due out this Friday, March 22 on an Othercide Beatport exclusive. Time to hunker down for more bass explosions.
Far Layer is quite different, even for Current Value. There is some definite work that would seem somewhat like conventional DnB but some tracks are really out there. There’s a surprising amount of melody and vocals on this EP, which seems to be indicative of CV’s recent interest in melody and music and how it pairs with heavy bass. “Dispelling Fear,” feat. Snow and Coresplittaz, for example, has some really interesting vocal and melody work. Similarly the title track is almost all melody and ambient sound design. “Photoelectric” and “Ferromagnetic” seem to be more conventional DnB but they still have that brainsplitting Current Value charm that never quite lets the prefrontal lobe off the hook.
In terms of recognizable drum and bass, our Your EDM premiere “Ferromagnetic” even goes as far as to have a very familiar musical sample in the intro and in the break. The beat structure, however, is another CV slammer. Only Current Value can give a hearty nod to the old school in a track while at the same time making it so different and new that no one would question his innovation or originality.
The beat and bassline are both quite minimal and clean with a simple kick and snare overlay and more classic DnB phrase transitions. The most notable innovation here is in the syncopation of what can really only be called a second beat, although some may tag it as the bassline. Raw, grinding and almost dissonant in how off the main beat it is, this second beat is where the brain of the listener really wakes up, pays attention and tries to make sense of another CV track. Let the simultaneous skanking and chin scratching commence.
With so much to digest on Far Layer, one could say that DnB fans will be occupied for a while but we still hope he continues his current trend of releasing more often. In the meantime, enjoy exploring the Far Layer of the cerebrum with this epic EP.

SXM Festival 2019 brings fresh underground sounds to the Caribbean
The most highly anticipated festival lineup of the year is finally on record.
Though there have been multiple Woodstock 50th anniversary events vying for recognition in the public eye, one has just secured a massive lineup. Among the original Woodstock promoters, Michael Lang and his Woodstock 50 now have a big leg up on the competition.
The three-day Watkins Glen-based event boasts a group of unmissable headliners, and unique undercard appearances, but lacks a dance music component. The full group of headliners, some of whom were previously confirmed are as follows:
Friday: The Killers, Miley Cyrus, Santana, The Lumineers, The Raconteurs
Saturday: Dead & Company, Chance The Rapper, The Black Keys, Sturgill Simpson
Sunday: Jay-Z, Imagine Dragons, Halsey, Cage The Elephant
Given the festival's focus on contemporary bookings over legacy artists in hip-hop, pop, and rock, it comes as a surprise that the lineup lacks dance music representation. While the vast majority of electronic music's innovation has come post 1969, the year of the original Woodstock event, the same could be said about hip-hop - which constitutes a dominant size of the anniversary lineup.Woodstock Lineup
Genres aside, the lineup does boast a mix of legacy talent as well as some of the hottest names of the moment, greatly enhancing its appeal across age demographics. Woodstock's 50th Anniversary takes place August 17th-19th, 2019. Tickets are available via the festival's website.FOLLOW WOODSTOCK:
Fans have been waiting for Flume to come back ever since his Instagram post at the end of 2018, promising to reappear in everyone’s lives. The DJ, who had taken a hiatus during 2018, gave no other details.
At the beginning of the year, the lead singer of The Gorillaz mentioned that he had been in the studio with Flume, leaving us to even more speculation. Since then, it has been silent.
Finally, Flume gave us some answers, albeit still somewhat cryptically. In a Twitter post, he announced that on March 20th, he would be releasing a mixtape, titled “Hi, This is Flume.” While we don’t know whether the Gorillaz collaboration will be on there or anything else other than some visual art, we can’t wait to see what is in store.

The Woodstock 50th Anniversary concert taking place at Watkins Glen in New York State has finally announced its heavily rumored lineup.

New, unearthly sounds from Rezz are inbound.
For the fifth year in a row, we will be hearing a longform project from Rezz. The Canadian producer took to Twitter today to announce her 2019 EP is finished, and awaiting final assets. The news indicates a rollout of new music lies in the near future.
Rezz initially announced the, as of now untitled, EP at the beginning of February. Less than a month following the initial announcement, she was teasing new music. At her recent appearance in Milwaukee at the Eagles Ballroom, she played out her forthcoming collaboration with Sayer.
Rezz has always been particularly communicative with fans, especially on Twitter. Though the "Mixed Signals" producer has been touring heavily, it's been some months since we've heard music from her. Hopefully this news marks a return to form for Rezz in the not so distant future.
Rezz will resume her tour with a performance at Insomniac's Beyond Wonderland on April 22nd.FOLLOW REZZ:
Just hours after Flume revealed he was dropping a new mixtape tomorrow, Lollapalooza dropped their 2019 festival trailer with brand new Flume music. The comments are almost entirely comprised of Flume fans vs Lolla ticket buyers, showing just how strong his pull is.
The song is pretty much classic Flume, with crisp sound design and high pitched fx, fuzzy white noise, and snappy drums. The bass is lush and incredible, as are the horns and strings. Long story short, we’re full on prepared for new music tomorrow.
Check it out below.
For those who do care, 4-Day tickets for Lollapalooza Chicago are on sale now.

Lost Frequencies changes up his signature tropical vibe with the brooding pop-bop, "Recognise," featuring Flynn.
Felix De Laet, better known as Lost Frequencies, released the new single “Recognise” with Irish artist Flynn on Armada Music, Armin van Buuren’s records label.
De Laet uses the plucks of an acoustic guitar to butter Flynn’s emotive, soaring vocals — while the driving percussion brings home the DJ’s signature, but ever-adapting tropical dance. The Irish artist’s indie pop sound bridges the introspective lyrics for a brooding pop hit.
Expect this track to make many warm-weather playlists this summer. In the meantime, get lost in the song with its recently-released music video.
Having recently concluded his headline North American tour in February, De Laet shows no signs of slowing down. This year alone, the Belgian DJ has and will continue to play at a good number of festivals around the world, most notably Ultra Music Festival this year.
De Leat first catapulted to success in 2014 with his house-pop single “Are You with Me.” He’s since maintained his upward momentum, cementing the number 17 spot in the top 100 DJs list.
Beyond the accolades, De Laet launched his own label last year, Found Frequencies. The label will serve as a home to the DJ’s own music, in addition to that from other talents.
Lost Frequencies is often associated with tropical house, but De Laet emphasizes how Found Frequencies will go “way past chill vibes only,” as he writes in the label’s description. “I intend to release a few club records of my own… I really hope it’s a musical taste many find enjoyable.”FOLLOW LOST FREQUENCIES:
13 joins the mau5trap family with his new EP.
After a successful EP release back in February with Mad Decent, 13 is back with another multi-track offering, this time via mau5trap. With his latest EP, Revelation, 13 continues to show dynamic versatility within his signature, distortion-heavy sound.
Over the last couple years, many have discovered 13 in conjunction with the rise of Rezz. The two have a couple collaborations together, "DRUGS!" and "The Crazy Ones," which appeared on Rezz freshman and sophomore albums, respectively. Now joining the label family responsible for pushing Rezz to the forefront, 13 earns the mau5trap spotlight with Revelation.
The dark, three-track offering does not see 13 treading lightly. Each installment remains more punishing than the last from the EP's single "Oath" to "Delusion" and finally, "Purgatory." While many producers have tried their hand within the mid tempo bass sub-genre, only the most tenacious will achieve the spotlight. With two multi-track offerings in the books for 2019 thus far, 13 is on the right track.

The lineup for Woodstock 50 just dropped out of nowhere and there’s a lot to examine with the full scope of artists, but here’s the rub. The festival will go down August 16-18 in Watkins Glen, NY. It will be headlined by:
From a cursory glance, hip hop, rock, pop, and country are all fairly represented on the lineup with plenty of artists each representing their style. The only thing missing in entirety from the lineup? Dance music. Woodstock 99 still managed to have some electronic acts, like Fatboy Slim, Moby, and The Chemical Brothers, so it’s curious that there are zero artists on this lineup with an ostensibly bigger budget.
Still, the lineup boasts a number of interesting and can’t miss acts, such as the reunion of Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, who famously broke up in 2014 after firing lead singer Jade Castrinos. Jack White is also getting The Raconteurs back together, with Woodstock 50 being only their second announced US performance.
Championing the younger artists, Greta van Fleet, Maggie Rogers, Grandson, Halsey, and more are all prominently featured.
Tickets for Woodstock 50 will go on sale April 22nd. Complete information is available on the festival’s website.

With Rezz, it’s been album after album. After dropping her debut Mass Manipulation in 2017, she wasted no time in starting work on her sophomore album, Certain Kind Of Magic, released just the year after. Now in 2019, with so many headline shows scheduled and so much music out, Rezz is taking a step back and slowing things down… with just an EP.
The EP has been talked about for a little bit, but Rezz has just shared that it is now actually complete. There’s still the matter of “preparing the assets/video” to take into account, and then formulating the release plan with singles and such. But long story short, we’re going to be getting the next batch of Rezz music very, very soon.
Check it out from the horse’s mouth below, and keep an eye on this space for news as we get it!
My EP is done I appreciate ur patience during the process of now preparing the assets/video

Duke & Jones transform Louis The Child's "Breaking News" into a dark, flute-infused trap remix for the 'Kids At Play (Remixes)' EP
On October 26th, 2018, Louis The Child released their Kids At Play EP via Interscope Records, a major milestone for the duo that served as their introduction to a much broader, more mainstream audience.
Six months and over 100 million streams later, the Kids At Play EP is due for an update, which is exactly what they set out to accomplish with the Kids At Play (Remixes) EP. Duke & Jones' dark, minimal trap remix of "Breaking News" is a perfect example.
Originally, “Breaking News” was a catchy, lighthearted, and at times delicate dance-pop track perfectly suited to a warm summer day. It was the epitome of easy listening and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
Striking a major contrast to the original, the remix from Duke & Jones starts off sounding deceptively similar to the Louis The Child version, but the similarities end as soon as the drop arrives. Heralded by a chorus of low but powerful horns, the drop introduces a minimal drum pattern accompanied by distinct trap flutes that create a dark, almost ominous vibe.
Duke & Jones' twist on "Breaking News" is by far the darkest contribution to the remix EP, and it's a perfect fit for the state of the industry today.FOLLOW DUKE & JONES:
BUKU Music + Art Project is only a matter of days away and the hype is real.
BUKU boasts one of the most diverse and exciting lineups of the year in the heart of destination party city New Orleans. With the music festival running from 2 pm to midnight each day over Friday and Saturday, there’s a lot to be seen and heard. So let’s break it down!
Friday includes tons of big names and up-and-comers alike, but with great talent comes great conflicts. We’re going to file 1788-L, From First To Last‘s DJ set, RL Grime under “don’t miss” performances of the day. There’s also an early set from Excision, so allow plenty of time to get there if you want to headbang.
NGHTMRE b2b Slander, Tokimonsta, Fisher, Ekali, Claude VonStroke, Noizu and more are sure to provide a stellar soundtrack for the day. Check out Lana Del Rey and Kevin Gates at the Power Plant main stage, but don’t sleep on powerhouse undercard artists like Rico Nasty, Peekaboo and more. There are five total stages (plus VIP) so make it a point to experience them all if possible.
Let’s jump right into “don’t miss” acts for Saturday — for us, it’s Dog Blood (Skrillex x Boys Noize), Whipped Cream, and Getter: Visceral. Also, hometown legends $uicideboy$. Thankfully, most of these sets are spaced out, but the rest of BUKU’s second day is, again, pretty much one big conflict.
Louis the Child, GRiZ, G Jones, Liquid Stranger, The Black Madonna and more are sure to cover any electronic and dance music fixes. Catch Earl Sweatshirt, A$AP Rocky and more at the Power Plant, or go find hidden gems like Doja Cat at the Switchyard or intimate sets from Kittens, Jansten and others in the VIP section.
With an unbeatable lineup like this, don’t take scheduling too seriously. Go with the flow and let the music be your guide! Learn more and discover artists on the BUKU lineup here: thebukuproject.com.Buku Music + Art Project 2019 Schedule

We can’t not try to find sneak peeks of Ultra’s construction progress; the festival, traveling to the Virginia Key State Beach Park for the first time, takes place next weekend. This means that construction is underway on several new stages; based on the pictures below, we’d say they’re in good shape to blow minds.
One such stage we can’t wait to see the inside of is the festival’s classic Megastructure, which naturally was one of the first stages erected. Luckily the pictures attached have some small houses in front of it so we can scale out the stage. The top of this new arch is about three times as high as those house roofs, which undoubtedly places this amongst some of the most impressive structures of its kind. Other than that, it appears the iconic “U” symbol has been completed on what we assume will be the main stage. All that’s left now is to see them raise it and add all the bells and whistles at their disposal before that massive space hosts thousands of revelers.
