Madeon has spent the past few years laying low, but 2019 has seen the producer return in full force. After releasing a surprise single, “All My Friends,” which received wide acclaim from fellow dance music producers and fans alike, he launched his own radio show on Beats 1 and a subsequent single, “Dream Dream Dream.” The surprises continue with the French producer now teasing a new music video that he thought of the idea for and spontaneously decided to shoot. He announced the video a day before its debut via Twitter.
HEY so the other day I had an idea for a video for All My Friends.
I decided to be spontaneous and make it very quickly, it’s coming out wednesday. pic.twitter.com/bqIyId5DyK
The video made its debut on July 17, featuring a sea of bright colors, trippy lighting effects, and shots of the producer wandering through fields. Its over-saturated hues and psychedelic editing effects fit perfectly with the easygoing atmosphere created by the May 31 single.
Changes to Ultra Music Festival's 2020 Bayfront Park return proposal would significantly affect the event.
Following a back-and-forth that saw Ultra Music Festival walk away from the proverbial table only to be lured back, the Miami City Commission have opened discussions regarding the event's return to Bayfront Park. If a proposal drafted up by the city holds any weight, however, significant changes to the attendee experience may be part of the deal.
The document has been posted ahead of a July 25th meeting set to determine the annual festival's future in the venue it's called home for the vast majority of its lifetime. Among the more significant changes are a 10:00 PM curfew on Sunday night, a sound limit reduction from 110 to 104 decibels from 60 feet away from each stage, and the requirement that organizers pay for police and fire department presence in addition to the same $2 million fee.
Ultra inaugurated in 1999 at Collins Park in Miami Beach. By 2001 the festival relocated to Bayfront Park, where it took place before the Miami City Commission downvoted its contract to take place there in 2019. After a one-off event in Virginia Key, the festival's organizers announced plans to relocate outside of Miami for the 2020 edition. Confronted with the economic impact of losing the event, city officials initiated meetings to discuss its return - but at the end of a June 27th meeting, the vote had been deferred to July 25th.
Ultra Music Festival will take place from March 27th-29th, 2020. For more information, visit the event website.

Welcome to One EDM, both! Having a good start to your summer season? Thanks for having us! It’s definitely set to be my busiest season yet. I have just returned home from a sun kissed DJ Sax set out in Bordeaux and straight back out the door again taking ‘I Like it’ to fill the …
The über popular 90s anthem “Crash Into Me,” originally penned by Dave Matthews Band, has been targeted by Steve Aoki and Darren Criss for a 2019 rinsing. They’ve taken it upon themselves to transform the folk-tinged rock pop tune into pure bubble gum fit for the modern young listener; the original’s mellowed guitar harmonies are synthesized into the goose-like synths prevalent in today’s EDM and pop worlds, while the pitched-down tempo adds a breezy effect that feels fit for outdoor listening. It might not be the most groundbreaking tune in its arrangement, but the idea of taking two vastly different genres of music and meshing them into one is certainly a fun one and speaks to the collaborators’ interest in evolving their artistry.
2019 is just over the midpoint line, but Hakkasan is already planning for the 2020 New Year’s Eve ball drop.
The nightlife entertainment authority recently announced that its 2020 New Year’s festivities will be led by Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, and Tyga, who will appear at the company’s Hakkasan, OMNIA, and Jewel nightclubs December 31.
Aoki attendees will have the opportunity to see one year fall into the next, under The Hakkasan Grid, the largest kinetic light art installation in the US. Confetti drops will add multi-colored zeal to the momentous drops that Aoki is all too liable to be dishing out that evening. Meanwhile, guests present at Harris’ OMNIA show will have access to the nightclub’s terrace, where they can view Las Vegas’ renowned New Year’s Eve fireworks display. Hip-hop enthusiasts who opt to bid 2019 adieu in the company of Tyga can expect confetti balloon drops and an exhilarating countdown to the year ahead.
Those who aim to ring in the New Year Las Vegas style can snag tickets to each of the three events, here.

Tomorrowland has had to make some last-minute updates to its lineup.
Tomorrowland's weekend one kicks off in just a few days, and the Boom, Belgium festival has made last-minute shifts to its lineup.
A$AP Rocky is still being detained in Sweden, and as such his name has unfortunately been withdrawn from the lineup. Additionally, the penultimate slot on Sunday will be filled by 3 ARE LEGEND (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Steve Aoki). KSHMR has also been added.
With the exception of KSHMR's addition, the news comes as a disappointment to some fans. Many had speculated Swedish House Mafia might fill the previously empty headlining slot on Sunday. There was certainly evidence it was, in the very least, a possibility.View the original article to see embedded media.
While it's possible the EDM community's speculation was simply unfounded, it does seem curious that Tomorrowland would wait to reveal this set from Dimitri Vegas, Like Mike, and Steve Aoki when they are both already playing the festival separately earlier in the weekend. Not only that, but the once hour-and-a-half time slot has since been reduced to only 50 minutes.
Needless to say, the headlining announcement raises questions as to whether this was Tomorrowland's original intention all along or whether this solution instead became a workaround to an unforeseen circumstance.
Tomorrowland's Weekend two headlining slot on Sunday currently remains unannounced at the time of writing.FOLLOW TOMORROWLAND:
Italian producer Zoibaf takes us on a calming chill trap adventure with the stunning new single "Voices."
Thus far in 2019, the young Italian producer Zoibaf (real name Fabio Nicora) has quickly earned himself a place amongst the most promising rising talent in EDM. Last week, on July 10th, 2019, he joined forces with previous collaborator TRUNG to put out what might be his most polished production to date, the indie pop/future bass single "Voices."
Being that he previously worked alongside the Vietnamese producer TRUNG on "Remedy," a deeply melodic future bass anthem featuring the captivating vocals of Australian singer AXYL, we knew to expect something special from "Voices."
Relaxing chill trap percussion provides a smooth and calming foundation for an enchanting pop vocal, all of which are driven forward by a laid-back, summery melody. Striking in its simplicity while managing to be both engaging and seductive, this is one of those occasions where you'll be thrilled to hear "Voices" in your head long after the song has ended.
Kendrick Lamar‘s good kid, m.A.A.d. City was released in 2012 and has stayed on the Billboard 200 chart ever since for a grand total of 350 weeks on the prolific album ranking system. This streak has tied the record set by Eminem‘s The Eminem Show, so one more week and the project that has brought us “m.A.A.D City,” “Swimming Pools,” “Backseat Freestyle,” “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Money Trees” with Jay Rock, “Poetic Justice” with Drake, “The Recipe” with Dr. Dre, breaks the record for most consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200 for a hip-hop album.
The album was nominated for five Grammys and thrusted the Compton-raised rapper into the limelight with the outlier success brought by his debut major label long play. Billed as concept piece, the story follows the life of a young Lamar living in the drug-infested and gang-riddled streets of his hometown.
Currently sitting at number 140, it doesn’t look like the project will drop off the Billboard 200 anytime soon, and it looks like this will be another notch in the artist’s long list of musical achievements.

The album is to be released in the autumn via Psychemagik Recordings.
“Where do we find the will to carry on?
…How are our journeys reflected in our life’s work?”
These are the musings that flood French producer, Erol Engintalay’s lyricism through his forthcoming EP, Fujisan, on FAKE MUSIC. While many of today’s top electronic acts look to the outside world for inspiration, it’s clear that Engintalay, better known as Monomotion, finds his musical direction from within.
The latest track to emerge from Fujisan is “Borders,” an offering that’s as organic as it is born for the club. Methodical with his audible brushstrokes, Monomotion is in no rush with “Borders,” allowing the song’s enchanted atmosphere to paint itself at just under 100 bpm. The single builds with layer upon layer of breathing soundscape, employing feint chirps, crisp gusts of wind, and distant, chanting vocals all before dropping listeners back onto the dancefloor with Monomotion’s room-filling claps.
The seven-track Fujisan is out on FAKE MUSIC July 26.

RL Grime‘s most massive and iconic release to date — “Core” — just turned 5 years old.
The leading single off RL Grime’s debut album VOID boosted the producer’s career to a whole new level and fueled an emphatic trap takeover in the scene. The album was later released in full on November 14, 2014, featuring collaborations with Boys Noize, Big Sean and more.
To measure the widespread success of this song is impossible, but if you just think about all the times you’ve shouted out “WHO DO THE SHIT THAT I DO?” during a show, in the car, partying with friends, wherever — it will give you a pretty good idea.
Flash-forward to now and RL Grime heads up his own imprint Sable Valley, and most recently dropped a new edit of G Jones‘ “In Your Head.” It’s a good time to be RL Grime.
Listening to “Core” takes us back to the promising early beginnings of the beloved project that is RL Grime. Listen again right here and shout it out once more!RL Grime – Core

Illenium is downright nonstop when it comes to new music. The producer just unleashed another new ID at Audiotistic over the weekend — and now it’s making waves online.
What fans are calling “Blood” made a statement on stage and Illenium soon after shared a short preview via his Instagram Story. Now, we’re able to experience a more complete snippet of the unreleased track thanks to the fan video below.
The new ID blends Illenium’s softer side with an absolutely ruthless drop. Beautiful vocals are met with an insanely original, bass-driven production. Glitchy, dubby goodness ensues as the producer throws down what we’re expecting to make way onto his forthcoming third album, Ascend.
Illenium’s new album comes out on August 16 and we can’t wait to hear what else is in store! Watch below to get an idea.Illenium – “Blood” (unreleased)

It’s a whole new era for Deorro; after being at the forefront of bounce for the better part of this decade and becoming forever embedded in pop culture with his classic Chris Brown collaboration, “Five More Hours,” Deorro has steadily been diversifying his portfolio as a producer over the past couple of years. Moreover, he’s also subtly re-branded; gone are the days of Pandas (at least in cover art) as the Southern California producer/DJ has settled into a more mature image. His latest single “All This Time” reflects that growth as a producer. On top of his new track, Deorro has also unveiled dates for his new summer tour!
“All This Time” opens with a progressive guitar chord riff, it’s very reminiscent of early deadmau5, as Deorro puts it, he was actually inspired by a very specific period of music for this song. After the first verse, the uncredited vocals increase in tempo and urgency as the synths make for more of a future house sound. The drop is full on progressive vibes with a vocal chop synth over that impeccable 128 bpm. “All This Time” fits perfectly into any summer time set, whether it be at the pool, on the afternoon mainstage, or in the club. Here’s what Deorro had to say about making the track.
“I was in a nostalgic 2009 mood, and I really wanted to make something progressive, and at the same time I received the vocals for ‘All This Time,’ and they both fit together really well. It was an in the moment kind of thing, and I was really happy with how it was sounding as I was producing it. I really hope people like it and stay tuned for some behind the scenes videos of me making it because I actually recorded a lot of it and live-streamed when I came up with the lead. Thank you! Enjoy.”
Check out Deorro’s latest single “All This Time” out now on Ultra Records.
Deorro’s World Tour 2019 starts out in Europe this month before making its way to North America, make sure to check out Deorro when he stops by your town this summer.

Trantic's music video speaks for itself.
Rising producer Trantic has unleashed not only a spellbinding remix of Slander, Spag Heddy, and Elle Vee's "Running To You" - but he's backing it up with a must-see music video that warrants a close look.
It's not everyday you see a music video for a remix, let alone one coming from a developing producer. Perhaps it's the unconventional approach that has caught our attention, but nonetheless, Trantic's project is likely to be considered ambitious in the eyes of many producers.
Trantic soundtracks this high definition exploration of parallel worlds creating an immersive experience from start to finish. The challenge of standing out is a common hurdle all producers face, and Trantic is uniquely positioning himself for a breakout with his latest offering.
Trantic explained that the remix took rendering over 100 instantiations before he finally found the best version. The Virginia-based producer described the arduous process of settling on a final version which took several months, but in the first week since the remix's release the producer's perfectionist mentality is already being rewarded.
Listen to Trantic's remix of Slander, Spag Heddy, and Elle Vee's "Running To You" here.FOLLOW TRANTIC:
G Jones is taking time off and will be postponing three shows originally scheduled for next week.
G Jones' management team has taken to Twitter to confirm he will be postponing three forthcoming shows. This news comes immediately following G Jones' announcement of his mother's passing.
The three postponed shows in Atlanta, DC, and NYC respectively were scheduled to occur next week. Jones' management team states they will keep fans and promoters updated should there be any further postponements.
As for Jones himself, he is understandably requesting privacy at this time. The producer posted a heartfelt tribute to his mother on social media and thanked everyone who has reached out to him, though he states he'd prefer not to discuss the matter further at this time.
Provided G Jones returns to tour following his time off, his next performance will be at Summer Meltdown in Darrington, Washington on August 4th.FOLLOW G JONES:
Two months ago, it was finally revealed that Rick and Morty would be returning to Adult Swim this year, in November. Since then, we haven’t heard much about the series. But now, official images from the new Season 4 have made their way onto the internet.
There’s not much to go on from the scenes shared by Rick and Morty, apart from the fact that it looks as brilliant as ever — even more so, possibly. In the first image, we see Rick walking through some other planet’s version of tall grass, smiling against a serene setting.
In the second image, we see Rick facing down a gang of crocodile/alien robot hybrid… things. There’s a clear parallel here to Crocubot, who met his end in season three episode “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender,” but they’re clearly different creatures.
Altogether, the two images do nothing apart from get us excited for season 4. Only a few short months to go! See the images from season 4 below.

A recent Instagram post from Diplo has swept the EDM world into a frenzy.
It's been three years since Diplo and Skrillex shelved their collaborative side project, Jack Ü. If the former artist's recent social media activity serves as any indicator, new music from the endeavor may be on its way.
Diplo (real name Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr.) shared a clip of him playing a remix of Jack Ü's smash hit Justin Bieber collaboration "Where Are Ü Now" at a festival. In the caption he gauged fans' interest in new music from the project, leading many to believe it may already be in the works.
After Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) and Pentz each rode the wave of the EDM boom straight to superstardom irrespective of one another, they formed Jack Ü in 2013 and released their debut single "Take Ü There" the following year. "Where Are Ü Now" won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording in 2015, but the duo disbanded in 2016.
It remains to be seen whether Diplo's tweet indeed pointed to new music from his and Skrillex's Jack Ü project.
