SPOILER: Tomorrowland’s First-Ever Winter Main Stage Comes To Life [FIRST LOOK]

Latest from Your EDM - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 18:49

Huge spoiler ahead — Tomorrowland Winter‘s Main Stage has just been revealed.

Not too long ago, Tomorrowland Winter released a sketch and full-color rendering of what the music festival’s Main Stage was supposed to look like when finished (see here). Now, we’re blown away by how on point the blueprints were, as the epic stage comes to life right before our very eyes.

Decorated with stone and icy blue, snow covered imagery, the Main Stage looks like a castle that’s been frozen in time. It’s the centerpiece of this year’s theme — The Hymn of the Frozen Lotus.

Tomorrowland Winter is just around the corner, with the festivities beginning this weekend and running March 9th through 16th in Alpe d’Huez, France. Soon enough, this stage will be lit up in spectacular fashion as a host for some of the most amazing artists in dance music.

The festival will be live streamed March 13th, 14th and 15th via Tomorrowland.com.

The Chainsmokers Watched Aspiring Artists Cover Their Songs & The Reactions Are Priceless [WATCH]

Latest from Your EDM - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 17:20

As one of the most popular acts on the planet, The Chainsmokers are covered every single day. YouTubers everywhere can’t resist the catchy lyrics and melodies the duo creates, making songs like “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Paris,” “Something Just Like This” — and oh yes, “Selfie” — among some of the most covered online.

The Chainsmokers recently sat down for Glamour‘s segment “You Sang My Song,” which involved them providing critique and commentary on a series of chill-inducing covers. Not only that — they surprised the aspiring singers and musicians via video chat and the reactions are priceless on both ends.

Playing back clips of their reactions, The Chainsmokers were able to offer some real accounts and advice for performers. The duo even thought, in some cases, the music videos were better than their own.

Madilyn Bailey and Alex GootLanden Boyer, Aspen, Matt McGuire, Barak and May, Tony An, Hannah Alex and Tayla Mae, were among the artists featured for the video.

Edison Cole Drops New Free Download, “Say Goodbye”

Latest from Your EDM - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 16:14

Edison Cole is a rather new name in dance music, having just released his first track toward the end of 2018. However, with years of experience already under his belt and a solid vision for his music, Cole is pushing forward with some fresh sounds and exciting new tracks. Today, he put out his second track of the year, “Say Goodbye.”

“Say Goodbye” is easily something that could live on Never Say Die. It has that almost classic dubstep feel with some added personal flavor, just to put his own mark on it all. With a memorable vocal sample and a simple but effective bassline and synths, “Say Goodbye” could fit seamlessly into any A-List dubstep DJ’s sets.

Hell, it would even fit on your own personal playlist. *wink wink*

Check out “Say Goodbye” from Edison Cole below, and be on the lookout for more from him this year!

deadmau5 Plays Unreleased IDs at Cube 3.0 Rehearsal Show

EDM.com - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 16:05

deadmau5 is preparing to launch his Cube 3.0 production at Ultra Music Festival later this month.

deadmau5 has been rehearsing the visuals for his brand new Cube 3.0 production. During his rehearsal show at Park City Live in Park City, Utah, he played what some are speculating to be two IDs from the dance music legend. 

A fan of the mau5trap boss recorded a ten-minute clip of his performance at Park City Live and uploaded the footage to his YouTube channel.

In the ten-minute video, you can hear what appears to be two new songs. Commenters have claimed the titles of the two tracks are "Saturn" and "Coasted" however, that information cannot be confirmed.

Long-time fans will fall in love with the two new tracks as some fans online have said they are some of their favorites from the Canadian superstar DJ/producer. 

deadmau5 recently shared footage of the initial rendering of the Cube 3.0 stage which will make its debut at Ultra Music Festival later this month. Along with the stage production teases, he released his mau5ville: level 3 EP last month, featuring music from himself and a number of mau5trap artists.

Your EDM Premiere: MASTERIA – GROOVE EP [Confession]

Latest from Your EDM - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 15:50

MASTERIA brings Detroit flavor to Tchami‘s CONFESSION label with his brand new GROOVE EP, out now. If his name doesn’t already provoke the sense of “mass hysteria” — his sound certainly will.

The ominous producer first arrived on the scene in 2018 with a debut release. His followup made a statement, as he unleashed the DARKNESS EP via CONFESSION. Flash-forward to now and MASTERIA is at it again, serving up energetic, upbeat sounds that emit an overall ominous tone.

“This Groove” and “Lose Control” are deliberate steps in MASTERIA’s inevitable takeover. These are the sounds of the night — the music that will bring revelers from heavy, late nights into the early mornings. Repping house music at it’s finest, with frenzied rhythms, menacing basslines, and infectious tech-house appeal, the EP gives off a “dance till you’re dead” vibe.

So press play, get your groove on, and let the music make you lose control! Listen and link up MASTERIA right here and never miss a beat!

Dillon Francis is working on ‘This Mixtape Is Fire 2’Dillon Francis This Mitape Is Fire 2

Celebrations are in order; Dillon Francis has confirmed that This Mixtape Is Fire 2 is underway. After a fan tweeted him asking for the song played in his Snapchat story, Francis responded simply with, “New music for This Mixtape Is Fire 2…”

He has since deleted the tweet, but not before the fans caught wind. Now the EDM community is as excited as ever for a nostalgic taste of some old Dillon Francis.

The moombahton producer released This Mixtape Is Fire in 2015 to positive reception, with tracks featuring collaborations with Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Bro Safari, Kygo and Chromeo. While Francis’ signature humor still makes its appearance on the EP, he seriously reels it in in favor of showcasing his versatility from producing heaters to more chilled-out tracks like “Coming Over.”

Since This Mixtape is Fire, Francis has ventured from his early signature moombahton—exploring Latin influences on his second studio album, Wut Wut, and softer sounds on “Fix Me” with Cuco—but  evidently still can put out shenanigans with antics like “EDM O’ CLOCK” and “Catchy Song.” This Mixtape Is Fire 2 could mark a much-anticipated return to Francis’ early sound.

The Music World Reacts To The Sudden News Of Keith Flint’s Death

Latest from Your EDM - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 15:40

The death of Keith Flint, front man for UK band The Prodigy, has rocked the music world this morning. According to a post from the band, Flint’s death was apparently the result of a suicide. Not only does this loss hurt terribly, it’s also another in a long line of calls to action for more transparency in mental health and keeping those closest to us in our hearts.

Hardwell, Pete Tong, Dillon Francis, Skrillex and more have already reacted to the stunning and unexpected news.

RIP Keith Flint, a true legend and big inspiration ❤???? https://t.co/zQTTVjAF0S

Streaming services now account for 75% of music industry revenue

Latest from Dancing Astronaut - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 15:34
Streaming services now account for 75% of music industry revenueStreaming Services

The music industry has been dancing on the precipice of a sweeping streaming takeover for years. According to a recent report from the Record Industry Association of America (RIAA), that transition was solidified with a reported music streaming growth of 30% in 2018 alone.

The $7.4 billion in categorical revenue came from predicted streaming mammoths like Spotify and YouTube, as well as digital radio hubs like Pandora and SiriusXM. The music business at large was heftily bolstered by paid subscriptions to these streaming domains, accounting for over half the industry’s yearly takeaway for the first time ever.

While digital downloads in recent years accounted for nearly half of industry sales, it spent 2018 continuing its swift decline, finishing with approximately $1 billion in total revenue, dropping a sizable 25% from 2017, and garnering just 11% of the industry pie. Mirroring downloads is physical sales, down 23% in 2018 alone, with $1.15 billion in sales.

A bright spot for the latter sector, however, came in the form of a firm incline in vinyl sales, which saw its most profitable year ($419 million) since 1988, which should come as no surprise to those who’ve been tuning in to industry trends of the past decade or so.

Chet Porter Reveals he Ghost Produced a Radio Hit Last Year

EDM.com - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 15:27

The Foreign Family Collective artist revealed he ghost produced a track that became a radio hit.

Canadian producer Chet Porter revealed to fans on Twitter that he ghost produced a track that became a radio hit last year. 

In his own words: 

"have been keeping quiet about this bc i always want to be the most humble artist i can be, but i co-wrote/ghost produced a song last year that made it to radio and became an actual hit. and nobody knows it lol. so weird to me. fuck it i’m gonna buy myself a crazy fucking house"

After reading his Tweet, fans of the Foreign Family Collective artist have been wildly speculating which track he produced. It seems as though the artist will not be revealing the identity of the ghost-produced track, so fans will be stuck on their witch hunt with no end in sight. 

Porter is signed to ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective label. Back in October, Shallou told us he had a collaboration with Porter in the works. He was recently featured on the remix EP to ODESZA's Grammy-nominated album, A Moment Apart

LICK continues his upward trajectory after sharing his remix of “Lose Myself” by Seven Lions

Latest from Your EDM - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 14:44

LICK has had a phenomenal couple of months. From his remixes of Skrillex and Virtual Self to his recent DIMENSION EP on Deadbeats, this up and coming producer is taking the mid tempo world by storm. However, he shows up with something new for his latest offering.

Taking on Seven Lions’ hit “Lose Myself”, LICK offers up his typical bass heavy mid tempo sound that we’ve come to know LICK for. He then takes the song in a completely new direction that we haven’t heard from him by bringing in a future bass drop. It’s great to see artists exploring new sounds and venturing outside of their comfort zone and I think LICK did it spectacularly here. Check out the remix below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Alesso Announces 'Progresso Volume 1' Mixtape Coming this Friday

EDM.com - Mon, 03/04/2019 - 14:15

The Swedish superstar DJ/producer revealed a brand new mixtape is coming this weekend.

One of the biggest names in dance music, Alesso, announced a brand new mixtape is coming this Friday. At the time of writing, little is known about the mixtape other than its name, Progresso Volume 1.

After reading the name of the mixtape, one can reasonably assume the Swedish superstar will be delivering a proper dose of progressive house to fans with this upcoming release. 

Attentive followers on Twitter pointed out that the track used in the teaser video was played during his performance at EDC Mexico last weekend. It is not known if any other IDs will be featured on the mixtape.

Fans of Alesso will have plenty of opportunities to see him this festival season. He was announced as a headliner at Disneyland Paris' Electroland, The Indy 500's Snake Pit, Tomorrowland, and more.

Late last year, he collaborated with Twitch mainstay, Ninja for a track on his compilation album Ninjawerks Vol. 1. Named in honor of the worldwide sensation, Fortnite, "Tilted Towers" saw Alesso deliver another massive big room heater to the video game inspired compilation.

Progresso Volume 1 releases this Friday.
