When these songs drop, entire crowds sing along.
There are certain songs so deeply engrained in the EDM vernacular that when they're played out in a live setting instinct takes over. Here are our highlights of songs that inevitably have crowds singing their every lyric word for word at festivals and shows around the world.1. Zedd - Clarity (ft. Foxes)
While the lyrics and songwriting by Foxes make "Clarity" singalong worthy, crowds seem to have equal enjoyment in chiming in with the background vocals on the build and drop of this track.2. Above & Beyond - Sun & Moon (ft. Richard Bedford)
We have never seen more teary eyes in a crowd than when this song comes on. Forever a staple of Above & Beyond's sets, the pure emotional response to this track is simply unmatched. If you think everyone in your festival group is beyond engaging in an emotional singalong to this one, you're in for a surprise.3. Benny Benassi ft. Gary Go - Cinema (Skrillex Remix)
This song is in a category of its own. We honestly can't think of another track that has been played out as many times for such a prolonged period of time, while still capturing consistently strong responses from crowds worldwide.4. 3LAU - How You Love Me (ft. Bright Lights)
This is a track that everyone seems to know the lyrics to when it comes on, but for some reason, few know the title. Listen to 3LAU's "How You Love Me" below, it might be a song you've lbeen searching for.5. Krewella - Alive
This was among the first EDM tracks we can recall to receive national top 40 radio play, concurrent with the EDM boom in the United States. From the sound design to the songwriting, it was instantly memorable in every capacity. It's no wonder as soon as the piano intro kicks in during a Krewella live set, crowds around the world know what to do.6. ODESZA - Say My Name (feat. Zyra)
At this point in its lifespan, ODESZA's 2014 release "Say My Name" doesn't quite have the nostalgia factor working for it yet. However, the duo has been aggressively touring for several years now, so it's not necessarily a surprise this track feels familiar like an old friend.7. Kaskade - Disarm You (ft. Ilsey)
Kaskade has long been a staple of festivals around the world. That said, his 2015 release "Disarm You" has quickly become a fan favorite in his live sets. Kaskade is known for frequently diversifying his performances, so whenever he drops "Disarm You" fans are ecstatic to chime in with the lyrics.8. Swedish House Mafia - Don't You Worry Child (ft. John Martin)
Prior to their hiatus, Swedish House Mafia could not have gone out on a higher note with the release of this song. The unparalleled hype surrounding this track on the radio and on tour dramatically expanded the reach of the group outside the electronic music ecosystem. When people who don't normally like or listen to electronic music can sing this word for word, there's no better indication of success.9. Avicii - Levels
Live tributes by DJs around the world to the late Tim Bergling have shown us that the iconic progression of "Levels" will always invite audience participation no matter who is playing it out.10. NERO - Promises
This song's initial trajectory was vastly helped along by an iconic remix from Skrillex. Given NERO's impact on electronic music in the years since, however, people seem to be taking an equal appreciation to the original. Either way, when the chorus of "Promises" hits, everyone will try to hit the high notes (and few will succeed).11. Calvin Harris - Feel So Close
Even if you're not the best singer, you might have a chance at it when "Feel So Close" comes on. It's laid back enough to the point where it feels like an accessible song for anyone to sing. Perhaps this is the magic behind Calvin Harris' breakthrough single.12. Alesso vs. One Republic - If I Lose Myself
At its peak you could hear this song on festival mainstages, bars, college parties, and every venue in between. The impassioned crowd response has always been the same. To think Alesso's version dramatically outshined the original release by One Republic is a remarkable accomplishment by Alesso.13. Sebastian Ingrosso, Tommy Trash, John Martin - Reload
There's no additional perspective we can give on this track. Everyone knows it, everyone sings along with it. "Reload" is unanimously regarded as a timeless contribution to electronic music, so when John Martin's "take my hand..." lyric comes in the crowd is inevitably ready to belt out what's next.

2004 called and it wants its flip phone back. The Motorola RAZR is being revamped for a new-and-improved comeback. This time around, the new design will compete with modern smartphones, as it rocks an all-new touch display.
The image above is our best look at the forthcoming device and it looks incredibly similar to the OG RAZR V3 flip phone model. The mock up is on par with the old design, but best believe it will rock all sorts of new functions built for the now.
According to reports, Motorola and parent company Lenovo will release the cutting-edge revival. However, there is no mention of “RAZR” in the patent despite the remarkable similarity.
The expected cost of the new generation of RAZR is around $1,500. Production-wise, the run may be limited to 200,000 units.

Album pre-save launches Feb. 8th with Feed Me's new track, "Feel Love."
British producer and artist Feed Me (real name Jon Gooch) has been laying low in recent years - that is, until last month when he teased an album release with no official date. Today, the little green monster behind the man known as one of the greats in the electronic genre returns to mau5trap with his unique brand of hard-hitting, bass-heavy electronica for the release of a new full-length studio album, High Street Creeps.
The album is set for release on February 22nd. It will be available for pre-save alongside a new single titled "Feel Love" on February 8th, followed by second single called "Sleepless" on February 15th.
High Street Creeps will feature 10 tracks which span a variety of styles so fans should expect some new sounds from the seasoned producer. From "Feel Love," which features the angelic voice of Rosie Doonan (who has performed with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Birdy), to "Sleepless," which was almost entirely produced from a Eurorack modular, listeners can expect the unexpected from Gooch.
Addressing the long gap of time between albums, Gooch states:
"I'd amassed a lot of material since my last album, but it took a long time for me to feel like it was the right time to do another. My life had changed a lot since I'd been through a lot of experiences and it felt overwhelming to try and condense a sprawling mass of feelings and ideas into a new story."
High Street Creeps - a namesake taken from the notorious 1980s Hertfordshire pheasant poaching ring - marks Gooch's second full studio album, following his 2013 debut Calamari Tuesday. Following up his debut with a string of Feed Me singles and EPs, as well as the inaugural album for his alias Spor in 2015, High Street Creeps marks the producer's sophomore full-length effort. This album will also be Feed Me's ninth overall release on mau5trap.
A Ugandan DJ was reportedly killed by members of the crowd while playing a set at a disco hall. The violence occurred days ago in the country’s Akworo Sub-county in the Nebbi District.
According to the report, a mob of angry revelers attacked the DJ, name Jerry Okirwoth, when he refused to play their favorite music, calling it “boring.” The establishment’s management team has been blamed for failing to protect the DJ.
Nebbi Resident District Commissioner William Bob Labeja addressed the public concerning the startling act of violence:
As the head of security in the district, I will no longer allow any disco operators to conduct their businesses in the sub-county and anybody who defies the directive will be prosecuted. All disco halls in all sub counties must be closed because they are causing insecurity and redundancy among the youth.”
Violence apparently runs rampant in the area. Labeja said there have been reports of five other people killed in the district over the past week.

DJs are rallying for Trollphace after his house burnt down and he lost everything. That includes his life’s work as an artist, his pets, and all of his belongings.
Nothing will be able to replace the kind of loss Trollphace has experienced, but friends and supporters are joining together to help out financially. The GoFundMe page has already raised over $10,000 toward the $15,000 goal.
“We cant replace these special things but we can help get Damon and his family back on their feet with the financial support they need,” the GoFundMe states. “…as a Dubstep/Music community we will pull together and help Damon, who’s music has definitely touched us all in someway over the years, bounce back and start to rebuild his life again.”
Skrillex has also personally called for fans to help out with what they can. The two collaborated on a remix for Yogi’s “Burial” in 2014.

Nathan Phillips was cast for Skrillex and Damian Marley's 2012 video.
As it turns out, a video clip making its rounds from an encounter that took place between Nathan Phillips and Covington Catholic High School students was not the first time his face was seen by millions. The Native American protestor also starred in the official music video for Skrillex's 2012 single "Make It Bun Dem" featuring Damian Marley.
Phillips' character faced a much different adversary in the "Make It Bun Dem" video. The montage of clips depicts a city developer eyeing the elder's place of residence, only to retreat when a younger character initiates a torrential downpour with what appears to be a rainmaking ritual.
Phillips' run-in with the MAGA hat-wearing youths took place when anti-abortion rally March for Life converged with the Indigenous Peoples March on Friday, January 18th in Washington D.C. The matter of who initiated the confrontation remains a hotly debated subject, as does whether Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann was smiling or sneering at the activist.
Skrillex will resume touring with a performance at EDC Mexico in Mexico City in February 23rd, 2019.FOLLOW SKRILLEX:

Jasmine Eiland's attorneys will conduct an independent investigation.
Several days after a barely coherent Jasmine Eiland live streamed her own apparent rape at Opera Atlanta, she has announced her legal representation in the matter. Sexual assault attorneys Joshua Palmer and Chris Stewart have issued a statement to that effect today, revealing that they will conduct an independent investigation of the incident.
"Stewart has represented numerous women who've been victims of sexual assault including Hope Cheston, who was awarded a $1 billion jury verdict against a security company following her assault," reads the statement shared by Stewart Trial Attorneys.
“No woman should go through something like this," reads a post by Palmer. "The facts will be discovered and how this happened will come to light.”
Two separate Facebook live streams documenting Eiland's apparent sexual assault had been deleted after being viewed by hundreds. Clips had been retrieved and sent to EDM.com on the morning of January 21st.
In the days since the incident came to light, Zedd canceled his February 1st performance at Opera Atlanta. Local promoter subtle also relocated a January 25th event headlined by Ciszak vs Bot.
Stewart Trial Attorneys' statement says that Jasmine Eiland and Chris Stewart will address the media "in the coming days."FOLLOW OPERA ATLANTA:
It’s been six years since Feed Me’s debut album, Calamari Tuesday. In the time since, he’s released three more acclaimed EPs, as well as a debut album as his first alias Spor, but fans have always wondered when the next Feed Me album was coming. Last month, he finally teased a new album was on the way, and today, he dropped the news fans have been waiting for.
Feed Me’s second album will be titled High Street Creeps, and will release on mau5trap in a month, on February 22. The first single, “Feel Love,” will be released February 8, followed by second single “Sleepless” on February 15. The album contains 10 tracks in total.
In response to the long gap of time between albums, Feed Me states, “I’d amassed a lot of material since my last album, but it took a long time for me to feel like it was the right time to do another. My life had changed a lot since, I’d been through a lot of experiences and it felt overwhelming to try and condense a sprawling mass of feelings and ideas into a new story.”

Chris Brown's lawyer says he plans to sue for defamation.
After his arrest in Paris on suspicion of aggravated rape, Chris Brown has been released by French police without charge. In a series of social media posts he has denied the allegations, and his lawyer, Raphael Chiche, has said that he plans to sue for defamation.
Brown was arrested on January 21st for an incident said to have taken place on the 15th in which he met the alleged victim at Paris nightclub Le Crystal and invited her back to his suite at the Mandarin Oriental. According to her statement, he and two unidentified men took turns having unconsented sex with her.
Following his release, Brown wrote, "I want to make it perfectly clear, this is false," in an Instagram post captioned by the phrase: "This bitch lyin'," according to BBC. Chiche echoed his client's sentiments, revealing that the "Loyal" singer intends to sue his accuser for defamation.
Brown's work as a musician has crossed over from R&B and hip-hop to EDM on more than one occasion. In addition to collaborations with Deorro and Benny Benassi, he has an as-yet-unnamed track with Marshmello in the works.
Parisian authorities have continued their investigation into the incident following the release of Chris Brown and his associates.
Quality Goods Records and UZ have followed up the producer and DJ’s 2018 The Rebirth album with a remix collection. Out this week through his label are seven alternate versions of some of the LP’s most memorable tracks, with plenty for fans to sink their teeth into.
Rome In Silver, Eliminate and Silva set things going with fresh versions of ‘Mad,’ ‘Rebirth’ and ‘Leave It,’ whilst we love the gnarly edit of ‘Futon’ from Baajewala. If rising star Krischvn is a bit of you, be sure to check out his wonky reworking of UZ and Bok Nero‘s ‘Flash.’ Hydraulix delivers yet again with ‘Cray,’ before Jon Casey finishes things off nicely with an expansive re-lick of ‘Castle’ ft. Nevve.

The Indigenous Peoples March last week should have been a time of understanding and celebration, but it became national news for all the wrong reasons when a video of a group of young men in MAGA hats apparently harassing a Native American elder went viral. The elder has been identified as Nathan Phillips, a former U.S. Marine.
As it turns out, that same Nathan Phillips coincidentally starred in the music video for “Make It Bun Dem” by Skrillex in 2012. The connection was discovered by fans on Reddit’s /r/Skrillex — but even then, the majority of comments had a tone of incredulity.
“[T]he simulation is officially broken,” writes one user.
“I can’t believe this is actually real. After reading OP’s headline, I 100% thought this was a troll. Look at his wikipedia page, it’s genuine. Wow,” writes another.
Sure enough, Phillips’ Wikipedia page confirms the man in the music video and the man at the march are one in the same. Talk about a glitch in the Matrix, eh?

The legal battle stemming from Paul van Dyk's 2016 stage fall is over.
According to Paul van Dyk, ALDA Events literally added insult to injury by not calling to check up on him after he fell from the stage at A State Of Trance 750 in Utrecht in 2016. Nearly three years after the incident took place, the event promoter must pay him $12,588,643.45.
The 10-meter fall caused Paul van Dyk (real name Matthias Paul) to suffer severe brain and spinal injuries. Included in the amount awarded to him following a September, 2018 hearing is $2 million for future medical expenses, $1.2 million for lost profits, $2.475 million for losses in the next 10 years, and $5.5 million for other damages.
A name practically synonymous with the emergence of trance during the '90s and beyond, Paul also holds the distinction of being the first-ever Grammy-nominated electronic music act. Before the end of last year, he delivered his seventh studio album in the form of the 15-track Music Rescues Me.
So far in 2019, Paul van Dyk has released a Rafael Osmo collaboration titled "Moments With You."

Here's how you can help Trollphace in his time of need.
Unfortunate circumstances have befallen a figure near and dear to the dubstep community. L.A. DJ/producer Trollphace's house reportedly burned down last night, and his supporters have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help him through the dire turn of events.
According to the GoFundMe page set up by his booking agent, Mike Puliz of United Talent Agency, and Chris Eddowes of I.AM.Audio, Trollphace (real name Damon Orienti) lost not only worldly belongings but also beloved pets. At the time of writing, the fundraiser has amassed $5,323 of its $10,000 goal.
