Idris Elba has been getting a ton of media attention in 2019, and it’s not for his acting. His DJ career is starting to gain steam and has only been bolstered with news that he’s performing at Coachella this year. For those that dismiss his abilities, they need only look online for various mixes he’s made public or tracks he’s put out.
He’s actually just been featured on a new track “Boasty” from Wiley, Sean Paul, and Stefflon Don. And it’s absolutely fire. It has a classic dance hall riddim and bouncy vibe — each artist contributes plenty to the end product, whether it’s in vocals or support. Putting Idris on the track is just the icing on top of an already tasty treat.
Check out “Boasty” below.

What So Not & Herizen have released a soulful new single.
Nearly a year following his debut album release, What So Not is back with new music. The superstar producer finds himself teaming up with actress and singer Herizen for an emotional single titled "We Can Be Friends."
While it's not immediate suggested by the title, "We Can Be Friends" is a pained emotional release at its core. According to Herizen, the song is about "letting go of someone you love for the better and feeling all the pain in that detachment, with the hope that it could end in a friendship.”
Herizen is perhaps best known for her starring role in the Netflix TV series The Get Down. The rising songstress has quickly been making a name for herself in the music arena following her 2018 EP Come Over to My House.
Given Herizen's early affinity for genre-bending productions and soulful vocals it's no surprise she and What So Not became quickly aligned. The two wrote the track together during a writer's camp in Nicaragua.
Released in early 2018, What So Not's "Not All The Beautiful Things" took some time for the electronic community to process. The album was one of the most diverse offerings in recent memory and featured collaborations with Skrillex, Toto, San Holo, Rome Fortune, and more.
Hot off the festival circuit of last year, hearing What So Not back with new music could mean another impactful year for the Australian producer.FOLLOW WHAT SO NOT:
When it comes to the music industry (or any industry for that matter), it’s important to recognize mental health as a priority. This is exactly why artists including Getter and Flosstradamus recently joined a panel to discuss mental health, during a live Q&A facilitated by Icon Collective and Back To Back.
Long hours, unpredictable pay, and overall stressful situations are just the beginning of artist struggles — especially on the way up to the top. As a bigger act, that shifts into hefty tour schedules, even more time on the road, and potential tolls on health and wellness. Not to mention, DJ/producers are expected to put themselves out there with their art and social media presence. It’s a demanding gig to say the least.
In the video below, Getter, Flosstradamus, Aryay, and Blaise DeAngelo weigh in on their own personal experiences and the importance of mental health in the industry. We commend these artists for being open and honest about the hurdles they’ve faced. The better we can all understand, the better we can all build a support system for the EDM community and beyond.

Visuals clearly aren't the only thing Troyak has mastered.
If you're a fan of EDM, chances are you've seen Troyak's work as he's the official VJ of DJ/producer KSHMR. As it turns out, his skills extend to the studio as well. EDM.com is proud to premiere the Ukrainian producer's new single, "Escape" featuring chæ.
The serene vocal contributed by chæ (real name Chelsea Andrea De Silva) is elegantly framed by soft sound design elements in "Escape." The arrangement includes more changes than the typical EDM buildup-drop scheme, making for an out-of-the-box addition to any DJ set.
Troyak is perhaps best known for his work on KSHMR and Tiger Lily's 2016 single, "Invisible Children." Although not officially credited on the track, his input was made public by the DJ on social media and live at Ultra Music Festival.

Thanks to various high profile artists like Tekashi 6ix9ine, Datsik and more recently R. Kelly (though “recently” isn’t as accurate as saying “again for the same thing”) becoming embroiled in high-profile PR scandals, more and more users on music services are voicing their desire to boycott these artists. Up until now, it’s been impossible to passively block an artist on Spotify — you’ve still been able to skip songs or remove their songs from playlists. However, Spotify is introducing a new feature that will fix that.
Spotify has been actively testing the new feature on its iOS. Rather than blatantly “blocking” an artist, the button reads, “Don’t play this artist.” It’s essentially the same thing with less harsh wording.
“The feature simply lets you block an entire artist from playing, so that songs from the artist will never play from a library, playlist, chart list, or even radio stations on Spotify,” writes Verge.
But it’s not perfect yet. Right now, the function lets you block songs from that artist, but not songs the artist is featured on. As the feature is rolled out to more users, it’s likely that oversight will be fixed.
No word yet on when the feature will be pushed wide to all of Spotify’s users, but it likely won’t be that much longer.

Quintino and Art Department still have gigs scheduled at Opera Atlanta.
After a whirlwind of public outcry surrounded Opera Atlanta over the past few days, Zedd has canceled his performance at nightclub on February 1st. Although the German DJ/producer did not specify a reason for the decision, fans surmise that it was due to the apparent rape that took place at the establishment on the evening of January 19th.
"Hey guys. I’m sorry I will no longer be performing at Opera Atlanta on February 1st," wrote Zedd (real name Anton Zaslavski) in a tweet. "I’m looking forward to coming back to Atlanta ASAP."
Art Department, Rick Ross and Quintino remain on Opera Atlanta's online schedule at the time of writing. They all have yet to issue statements to the contrary - and the latter artist even included his February 8th appearance at the nightclub in a tweet about upcoming U.S. dates today.
Atlanta promoter subtle pulled their January 25th event headlined by Ciszak vs Bot following news of the incident. EDM.com previously broke the story of the nightclub's security staff allegedly scamming attendees in December.

A 24-year-old woman has alleged that Chris Brown raped her.
In connection with an incident that took place on the evening of January 15th, Chris Brown has been arrested in Paris, France. A 24-year-old woman claims that Brown raped her in his suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. Brown and two other unidentified individuals are in custody for aggravated rape and drug charges at the time of writing.
According to the alleged victim's report, Brown met her at Paris nightclub Le Crystal. She left with him and a group of friends for the hotel, which is located near Concorde Plaza in central Paris. Police have two more days to investigate the matter, after which they must either release Brown or file preliminary charges.
Chris Brown released his self-titled debut album in 2004 and has sold over 100 million records in the years since. In addition to pop and hip-hop artists like T-Pain, Bow Wow and Jordin Sparks, he's collaborated with EDM acts like Benny Benassi, Deorro and Marshmello - the latter of which is still unannounced.
In 2009, Brown plead guilty to felony assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. His criminal record also includes another felony assault charge in 2013 as well as a felony battery charge in 2017.
EDM.com has reached out to Chris Brown's spokespeople for comment but they are not available at the time of writing.
