It's about to be hot in here.
Prepare yourself, because Friday, November 15th will be a scorcher. News is out that Dutch DJ/producer R3hab will release a new single titled "Flames" in collaboration with former One Direction heartthrob Zayn Malik and fellow U.K. artist Jungleboi. The three artists took to social media to tease the release with a brief snippet leaving much to the imagination.
While we have little information as to what to expect, one thing is for sure: it will be a hot one. All three performers have dabbled in dance-pop crossovers. Malik has worked with the likes of Marshmello, The Chainsmokers, and Snakehips. R3hab (real name Fadil El Ghoul) has worked with everyone from Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, to most recently Ella Vos. Jungleboi has produced with Will.i.am, Lilly Allen and Cara Delevinge in addition to performing with Kanye West at the 2015 BRIT Awards.
El Ghoul, the CYB3RPVNK label head, is having a successful 2019. He's dropped over 15 remixes, ran a full U.S. tour, and dropped his sophomore EP, The Wave. Catch him live alongside Disclosure, Chromeo, Bassjackers, and more at the Djakarta Warehouse Project this December.FOLLOW R3HAB:

From a young DJ in Rio de Janiero to a producer at the forefront of the global techno scene, ANNA’s rise has been well deserved. She’s proven to be an illustrious and prolific producer, highlighted by her widely acclaimed track “Hidden Beauties.” Following up on her collaboration with Kittin on “Forever Ravers,” her latest work brings her back to omnipresent label Drumcode—this time, for a full EP.
Galactic Highways is loaded with tight synth riffs underscored by pulsing drums throughout. “Phase Two” features a flurry of plucks that create a vast soundscape, while the title track cuts and swells towards a sharp climax. The EP comes in short with only three tracks, but its top-to-bottom quality is a strong sign that ANNA won’t be slowing down any time soon.

Just as this past September was winding down, Flume dropped a surprise single, arguably his biggest in years, “Rushing Back,” featuring vocalist Vera Blue. Alongside the release came news of Flume’s plans for a full-scale fall tour. Now, Flume’s returned to keep listeners satiated well into the new year; the Australian producer has released the music video for the single, which features himself seated alongside Blue.
The video serves as a visual appendage to the relationship reflection inherent in the lyrics. The camera traces circles around the two, each vantage point offering viewers insight into different times in the depicted relationship, which seems to lure and overwhelm each member into something of a revolving staircase of emotions—hence the title.
Incisive viewers will recognize the Nissan in the video as the same one featured in Flume’s visualizer for his explosive mixtape of this year, Hi This Is Flume.
The video is directed by longtime Flume collaborator, Jonathan Zawada. It’s available to stream now on Flume’s YouTube Channel.

This is the first single off his forthcoming album, Guiding Light.
Legendary trance DJ/producer Paul van Dyk has returned after an unexpected psytrance foray with Vini Vici. The German hitmaker is back to enter into a new chapter of his career with "Parallel Dimension," a collaboration with Canadian up-and-comer Elated. This release is the first single from the forthcoming album Guiding Light due for release in 2020.
The new single is a pure reflection of classic van Dyk trance. The uplifting melodies paired with his identifiable bass work will transport fans to a state of bliss. If this is any indication for what lies ahead in the new album, trance heads will be in for a treat come next year.
The collaboration between van Dyk and Elated (real name Graeme Knapp) stems from a few years back. As the Canadian producer began to build a following in the trance community word got back to the renowned VANDIT Records label head. The rest is history.
van Dyk has been a titan of trance music since the genre coalesced in the '90s. As a longtime purist of the scene, he's gathered a devoted following over the past 30 years. This has positioned him as the longest-running artists on the DJ Mag Top 100. To top off his illustrious career, his philanthropic endeavors have even earned him Berlin's Medal of Honor.
With experiences like these under his belt, the forthcoming Guiding Light LP is sure to blow fans out of the water. With the release of "Parallel Dimension," he has officially kicked off Mission: Guiding Light - the advance guard tour for the 2020 album. Catch him live across North America throughout November.

Today Annie Mac announced the first phase of the 2020 lineup for her annual Maltese festival, Lost & Found. As always, dozens of Annie’s old friends including Eats Everything, Denis Sulta and Mella Dee are set to appear along with exciting newcomers like Slowthai and Helena Hauff.
Annie Mac is, unequivocally, one of the most respected human beings in music. When people look at all her endeavours; from her new podcast ‘Finding Annie’ to her ‘Annie Mac Presents’ event series and of course her nightly radio show on BBC Radio 1, what they know beyond a reasonable doubt is that she has earned the right to essentially do anything she wants in music.
What makes her so notable though is that this respect doesn’t come from her productions (of which she has none) or even her DJ sets. It comes from her impeccable and inimitable taste in music. Making a name for herself on the radio, picking tracks to get people through a portion of their day, her knack for curation is renowned, and over the past few years, she has extended that knack to live event curation in fine style.
View the full phase one roster for Lost & Found below. Tickets for AMP Lost & Found go on general sale at 10am GMT Friday 15th November.

FOLD nightclub, only a year old, has been ordered to cease all operations on account of suspected fraud and money laundering. The East-London club’s operating license was suspended even though there has yet to be a trial of any sort.
According a statement, the license is under review “on the grounds that in the opinion of a senior police officer the premises are associated with serious crime.” Another court document outlines the specific illegal activity that prompted an investigation, claiming the FOLD could be guilty of committing fraud “relating to approximately £200,000 worth of material,” or “high-value DJ equipment.”
The plot of the popular underground club’s demise thickens, as additionally, two people associated with FOLD were arrested due to suspicion of conspiracy involvement to commit money laundering.
The club is asking for a fair trial and in an Instagram post, words from club purveyors are apologetic and seemingly innocent. This could be a case of “a few bad apples ruined the bunch,” but for now, until these issues are further resolved, all future events are effectively canceled.View this post on Instagram
We regretfully announce that our license to operate has been suspended by Newham Council. This news has hit us by surprise and extremely hard. Last night, serious accusations were brought to us and the local licensing committee. As a result of such, our license has been suspended and an immediate shut down of the club, without fair trial, has been imposed. We feel extremely blessed to have built a community around FOLD that can’t be compared or replicated. Every single one of you has made FOLD more than just four walls and a sound-system; we all have created a new way of thinking, a way of uniting and more importantly, given a refreshing meaning to the words safe space. This is all thanks to you, our community. We are currently appealing the suspension with the aim to maintain our operation for this weekend and events moving forward. We offer our most sincere apologies to anyone affected by this decision, we can ensure you that we are working as hard as we can to get to the bottom of this, no matter what. You are the reason we are fighting, and are our daily motivation. Stay put, we are not giving up. More information coming soon.

Katy Perry clearly wants her voice heard at the festival mainstage, recruiting electronic producers from all over to remix her recent leg of singles. First, Perry enlisted R3hab, Syn Cole, and more on “Never Really Over,” followed by White Panda, Sofi Tukker, and Lost Kings on “Small Talk.” Now, Chicago-born duo Win and Woo are up next, putting their take on her latest track “Harleys In Hawaii.”
Win and Woo stem from humble beginnings remixing Bryce Fox‘s “Burn Fast” and an official edit for The Chainsmokers chart-topping hit “Don’t Let Me Down.” Since then, they’ve received widespread acclaim, with key looks including a sync during NBC’s Sunday Night Football and the Blue Moon “Shine Brighter” campaign. With the increased traction, it’s no surprise that they were selected for an official Katy Perry rework.
The remix alludes to the originals’ slower tempo, yet adds a darker, punk-inspired touch with bold guitar chords on the verses layered over light piano riffs. The duo’s pop-influenced sound is driven by strong bass lines and melodic drops—evident on the drop with looped vocal samples—and maintains what can wholly be described as an electronic rock-band arrangement.

Apple has officially unveiled its 16-inch MacBook Pro and it’s a beauty. A beauty that will cost you.
The latest and by far most powerful MacBook Pro to date promises up to 80 percent faster performance, plus an all new Magic Keyboard for the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook. Not to mention, it’s an upgrade from the 15-inchers with a whole extra inch of screen.
The new MacBook Pro includes: 16-inch Retina display, updated keyboard, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, Touch Bar and Touch ID.
The internal specs are nothing to laugh about either, with an impressive combination of 2.4GHz 8-core 9th-gen Intel Core i9, 64GB 2666MHz DDR4, AMD Radeon Pro 5500M w/ 8GB of GDDR6, and 8TB SSD storage. Eight terabytes of SSD storage in a laptop — perhaps overkill, but if you’ve got the money to spend, why not?
The new 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,399 and runs up to $6,099 for the fully loaded model (see specs below).

"Thoughts" by LOUD soundtracked the POTUS' entrance at a Washington D.C. event.
Trap may not be the first style of music that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump, but a video from one of his public appearances might change that. "Thoughts" by LOUD played out over the speakers when the POTUS walked onstage at a Turning Point USA (TPUSA) event last July. By the looks of things, though, the producer may not have been approached about the placement beforehand.
The clip, which has resurfaced thanks to Barstool Sports, shows Trump entering stage right to cheers from the audience. The event was a TPUSA Teen Student Action Summit that took place at the Marriott Marquis in Washington D.C.
LOUD (real name Sebastian Kereti) is reportedly less than thrilled about his music being used at the rally. The Kiwi producer told the NZ Herald that he was thinking about pursuing legal recourse. "It was the last place I'd expect to see it being used," he said. "I'm not a fan of [Trump] ... I would much prefer Obama to use it," he said, despite being "not really into politics."
Kereti, 22, released "Thoughts" in 2016 when he was still a student at Music and Audio Institute of New Zealand. Among his more recent releases are melodic trap singles like "Feels," "XO" and "Angel."

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

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!Share0Share0Share0Share0

You’ve seen the viral TikToks — “what is like one week after living in ___.” It gets progressively more stereotypical, but not offensively, and it’s spawned a hilarious subgenre of videos for people to partake in. But what if a producer was to make a track about it?
MineSweepa is here to answer the question “what it’s like living in LA” with his new incredibly wonky single. Actually, it’s hard to really discern what the answer is, but from the tone of the track, it sounds like living in LA is a progressively weirder acid trip? Some people might be into that, I don’t know.
But as for the track itself, it’s a fantastically enthralling descent into madness and modulation with super weird bass and synths. Check out “LA” below before planning your next trip.

You may not have heard of Oliver Malcolm yet, but that’s all about to change. And while the 20-year-old producer may not yet be a household name, you’ve certainly heard his music already. That’s because Malcolm already has a slew of high-profile production credits to his name, including work with Joey Bada$$, Jay Rock, MF Doom, AlunaGeorge, and Cee Lo Green. Now, the young producer is planting his own flag, signing with Interscope/Darkroom—the same team that broke Billie Eilish to the world. Ahead of Oliver Malcolm’s impending breakout in 2020, we sat down with the emerging beat maker to learn a little more about him and what makes one of music’s next torch carriers tick.Currently, which musicians inspire you the most and why?
“It really depends on what I’m listening to each day. One day I’ll be listening to the Clash and be super inspired by them, the next I’ll be inspired by Jimi Hendrix and the next by Kendrick Lamar.”Is there a single moment or event that made you decide this was the career for you?
“Yeah, I mean when I was twelve or so I picked up some DJ decks to teach myself how to spin and that was sort of my introduction to really finding my love for music. But becoming a producer and eventually wanting to be an artist, I remember downloading a cracked version of Logic and once I was in that it was game over.”In the first few years of your newly emerging career as an artist, what would you say your primary goals are?
“I want people to just feel something with my music, that’s all I want at the end of the day. I’m really excited to start playing shows and want to do this full band set up. I have so many ideas, it’s going to be crazy. Other than that man, I just want to see what happens once I put my own music out there.”What made this the right time to launch your own project after working with such recognizable stars?
“It just felt right, man. I mean I love producing and will always be down to collaborate and produce for others, but I hit the point over the last year or so I’d say where I was like, ‘Why don’t I just put out my own shit? I have something to say and can do it 100% myself.’ So it just felt like the right evolution.”If you weren’t producing music, what else would you be pursuing? What interests you outside of music?
“Honestly man, music is it! When I was in school, I would just think about music and wasn’t interested in much else. All I would want to do is get out of class and be cooking in the studio. If I had to pick something though, it might be something in fashion or photography. Something to do with art, because at the end of the day that’s what I’m here for man, the art.”Is there a genre or a musical niche you feel is under-represented in pop culture? Do you intend to change that?
“I don’t know if there’s a musical niche or a genre is under-represented but I do feel like culture can change at any moment and I want to be at the forefront. I just think there’s an intersection between what is out there pushing boundaries as well as music that is more digestible and popular and I want to be at that point where they collide.”Look at your Spotify/Apple Music—what is currently in your personal rotation?
“Oh man, definitely anything Eminem. He has always been such a massive influence on me. ‘Jimmy Jazz’ by the Clash. ‘Ghost Town’ by the Specials is essential. In terms of songs right now, few that come to mind are the new FKA twigs “sad day”, Dijon’s ‘CRY BABY,’ the new Frank songs, tons more.
