Netflix got its trailer out first, but Hulu beat it to the punch with their own documentary examining the events leading up to and after the tragic Fyre Festival in 2017. Both streaming companies released their own documentaries last week, Fyre Fraud on Hulu and simply Fyre on Netflix.
If you went out this weekend, chances are someone brought up the two docs.
Did you see the Fyre doc?
Yeah, the Netflix one. I haven’t seen the Hulu one yet.
Ah yeah, I really need to watch the Netflix one. The Hulu one is really good.
If you haven’t seen either yet, or only seen one, and you’re wondering if it’s worth it to watch the other or both — it is. Both documentaries cover generally the same timeline and content: from the early days of Billy McFarland’s Magnesis and the Fyre app, for which the festival was supposed to be a promotional outlet, but we know how that turned out; to the weeks and days leading up to the event; to the moment that influencers and attendees arrived and the fallout that followed.
The differences between the docs come from where the footage originated.
Netflix partnered with Vice Media and Fuck Jerry, both of whom were involved in the production of the festival to some extent. Fuck Jerry was hired to do marketing for Fyre and had a dedicated film crew following around production staff, which is how they were able to compile such unique, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
Hulu’s big draw was an exclusive interview with Billy McFarland (which McFarland was actually paid for, a big journalistic ethical no-no). It also used more anecdotal footage from sitcoms and social media, as well as memes and interviews with various journalists.
So which should you watch?
I’m personally a fan of more story-driven content, and Netflix excels in that regard. If you’re looking for more of a fact-driven, actual documentary-style footage, Hulu may be more your cup of tea. Regardless, you’ll get some information in one that you won’t get in the other, and vice versa.
No matter what, the final message to take home is that Fyre Festival was meant to be a promotional vehicle for a consumer/booking app, which ended up taking on a life of its own, and crashed & burned to an incredibly epic degree. It’s astonishing that the festival was allowed to even have a first day. And you probably don’t know the extent of it all until you watch one of these docs.

WARNING: This post contains some vulgar language and explicit content. Read at your own discretion.
What was once one man’s real, living nightmare is going down in history as the most legendary anecdote to come out of Fyre Festival. Of course, we’re talking about the notorious dick sucking story from Netflix’s Fyre documentary.
As people draw lines comparisons between Hulu’s documentary and that of Netflix, there’s a clear line in the sand between one versus the other. One describes event producer Andy King‘s near run-in with a penis to get trucks full of Evian water across the boarder.
“Billy [McFarland] called and said, ‘Andy, we need you to take one big thing for the team.,” King explains on-camera in the newly released Fyre documentary. “And I said, ‘Oh my gosh, I’ve been taking something for the team every day.’
“He said, ‘Well, you’re our wonderful gay leader and we need you to go down, will you suck dick to fix this water problem?’ And I said, ‘Billy, what?’ And he said, ‘Andy, if you will go down and suck Cunningham’s dick, who is the head of customs, and get him to clear all of the containers with water, you will save this festival.’”
This is the same guy who admits he would break into tears whenever he was alone for a second, as Fyre became more and more out of his control. King was fully prepared to go down, to the festival site and otherwise, if it meant keeping the festival afloat — and more importantly, the thirst of attendees quenched. Thankfully, customs let the water go with no dirty deeds done, but the festival failed miserably anyways. Still, this guy is some kind of hero.
“Can you imagine, in my 30 years of career that this was what I was going to do?,” he says. “I was going to do that, honestly, to save the festival.”
Naturally, Twitter’s commentary about the dick sucking story is on point. Never forget.

Following the success of his 2017 collaboration with Rezz titled "DRUGS," emerging bass music producer 13 has served up a solo release. "Uppercut" sees the anonymous artist at his all-analog best, and is out now by way of Mad Decent.
The bass wobbles in "Uppercut" follow a downtempo beat structure a la Rezz, but their sound design is unlike anything else on the market. It hints at dubstep tracks released by the likes of Excision or Zeds Dead but with a distinctively organic sensibility.
13 debuted with "Eradicate" in 2017 and has been steadily climbing the EDM ladder ever since. In addition to his Rezz collaborations, he has also made appearances on the Canadian producer's Certain Kind of Magic Tour.
13's next release will be a remix of "Nookie" by Limp Bizkit that will come out on Interscope Records. In the meantime, stream or download "Uppercut" via Mad Decent across platforms here.Follow 13:
"Electrico Romantico" resulted from a chance meeting between the two.
Sometimes the most organic collaborations are the product of pure happenstance. That appears to have been the case with Bob Sinclar's "Electrico Romantico" featuring Robbie Williams, which is out now on Armada Music.
"Electrico Romantico" marks a significant stylistic shift for Bob Sinclar (real name Christophe Le Friant) when compared to his 2018 summer hit, "I Believe." The former track's downtempo arrangement better suits the vocal contributed by Williams.
The song came about after Le Friant ran into Williams at a charity event organized by the French high school his children attend. Both artists' careers extend back to the '90s.

Eric Prydz is working on a mystery remix and the anticipation is killing us…
“Long time since I did an official remix…” he shared in a rather vague update. That’s all fans needed to get excited. And all we needed to let our minds run wild with the possibilities.
The last official remix Eric Prydz did in the dance realm, under his main moniker, was his version of “The Veldt” for deadmau5 in 2014. He also did a remix for CHVRCHES for their song “Tether” in 2015.
Yeah, it’s definitely been a hot minute. Any guesses on which track he’s about to remix?
We’ll be the first to let you know when it drops.
Long time since I did an official remix…

Top doctors in Australia are calling for pill testing at music festivals and other events. Territory leaders have denied approval of such testing — despite multiple deaths, public outcry, and even by special request of the family of a deceased.
The Royal Australasian College of Physicians says it’s like “government policies failing our communities.” The organization has joined together in sending an open letter to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and related officials. They urge the government to take pill testing seriously, because other methods aren’t working.
The RACP represents over 17,000 physicians and paediatricians. Collectively, they agree there is enough evidence that pill testing could help prevent misuse of drugs. Their stance: knowledge is power.
“The RACP’s experts in addiction medicine and public health medicine believe the evidence currently available justifies the introduction of carefully designed pill testing trials in Australia,” Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones weighs in.
“Ideally, we would all like young people and the wider public not to use drugs illicitly. However, the reality is that they do in large numbers and the moral message to abstain from taking drugs is not getting through.”
The NSW coroner is currently looking into the recent deaths of five music festival attendees.

2019 has been a little slow for new music releases, but it is only the beginning of the new year. But, last week still had some big remixes, collabs and edits from a few notable names. Check out the latest Your EDM Week in Music playlist on Spotify below:
Skrillex collaborated with Hikaru Utada for “Face My Fears,” the official theme from Kingdom Hearts III. Utada famously sang the “Simple and Clean” and “Passion” themes for the first two KH games, but this marks the first collab for the series’ music themes.
Lil Wayne adds to the fray on the LSD track “Genius.” Wayne joins the original track with Diplo, Sia and Labrinth, adding his patented raps to the original track.
ZHU collaborates with Sofi Tukker on “Mi Rumba,” a surprising but welcome pairing. Both artists are working on new music, so it’s exciting to hear them come together before releasing more solo material.
Above & Beyond released their new single “Flying By Candlelight,” and we highlighted the club mix of the new track in our playlist. The track features the vocal talents of Marty Longstaff, their second collab since “Tightrope.”
Ex-The M Machine (RIP) member Luttrell remixed Tycho‘s “Epoch” track for lovely results. The rising deep house producer gives a dancey shine to the originally atmospheric track.

Denon is doing everything it can to compete with Pioneer to be the ultimate, go-to brand for DJ equipment.
The former has introduced the Prime 4 standalone system — which is all any beginner or intermediate DJ would need to dive right into the mix. Even professionals can have fun and get creative with this setup.
Pioneer’s XDJ-RX2 has arguably been the next best option before upgrading to CDJs and that’s probably still the case. Similarly to Denon’s newly introduced Prime 4, it’s an all-in-one system. However, the big catch is the two-channel setup. DJs have been craving the 4-channel option in a concise, all-in-one piece that still feels within reach to the CDJ experience. That is, until now.
Denon’s Prime 4 delivers on that need with its new system, priced at $1,699. The number still may be a little startling for aspiring DJs, but it’s much more affordable than going all out with four decks and a mixer. The rig runs through Denon’s Engine Prime software, but is compatible with playlists and hot cues from Serato DJ Pro, Traktor Pro, and Rekordbox.
“With its ultra-responsive, touch-capacitive jog wheels, high-quality audio I/O, and built-in time stretching and key matching, Prime 4 has everything you need to bring your mixes to the club.”
This hybrid — more than a controller yet not quite a professional setup — surely has its perks. But can Denon compete with the industry standard, Pioneer? Surely, the Prime 4 will give the XDJ-RX2 a run for its money, especially considering both pieces of equipment are set to the exact same price point.
The Prime 4 DJ setup is expected to go on sale in March 2019. More info here.Denon DJ Prime 4 – Standalone DJ System

Opera Nightclub in Atlanta is under scrutiny after a woman allegedly live streamed herself being raped on the dance floor of the club and no one came to her aid. The incident happened Saturday, January 19, as New Orleans rapper August Alsina was performing.
The woman, who has made the videos public, has been identified as Jasmine Eiland. She was live streaming on her Facebook throughout the night, according to public posts, during which time she was approached by a stranger. The man asked if she was alone, to which she replied that she was. The man walked off screen and later returned with a drink for Eiland — judging by her behavior on stream the rest of the night, it’s believed the drink had been drugged. No toxicology report has been issued to confirm this suspicion.
Multiple separate live streams were posted throughout the night, including one of the alleged rape, which has since been deleted and handed over to police as evidence.
According to Ravers Choice, which viewed the video before it was removed, “She can be seen on the dance floor, with her breasts out, and the same man that had retrieved a drink for her is penetrating her from behind while she is screaming out ‘Help me, please god, someone do something’ with tears streaming down her face.”
Opera Nightclub posted the following statement earlier today.
This is not the first time that Opera has been in the news in recent months. Late last year, Opera staff was accused of extorting patrons who’d already paid for tickets to a show, demanding upwards of $100 on top of what they’d already paid for a ticket to get in. Opera Atlanta Director of Marketing Alexandra Trawick reached out to EDM.com to explain that the offending staff had been dealt with, and that the behavior did not “reflect their principles.”
The fact that no security or staff was able to view an alleged rape in progress, or were otherwise pre-occupied or unable to help, is no good, either.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on this situation as more information becomes available.

An unlikely trio came up with the theme for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hits theaters next month, but the film's theme song has found its way to the masses in the meantime. "Catchy Song" resulted from a collaboration between Dillon Francis, T-Pain and That Girl Lay Lay.
The three artists haven't tried to hide the purpose of the song, whose chorus goes "This song's gonna get stuck inside your head." Teasing a clip of the tune in a tweet, Francis wrote, "...if it gets stuck inside ur head and you want to punch me in the face I’m sorry (you gotta admit tho it’s catchy af)[sic]."
The first installment of The Lego Movie came out in 2014 and featured a theme song titled "Everything Is AWESOME!!!" by Tegan and Sara featuring The Lonely Island. Songs by Taylor Swift, The Beastie Boys and Alesso are included on the soundtrack for the sequel.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part comes out in theaters on February 8th, 2019.

Graphic video from an incident at Opera Atlanta has since been deleted.
Trigger warning: Rape, sexual assault
A horrific incident has taken place over the weekend at Opera Atlanta. In video she captured herself, a woman named Jasmine Eiland appears to have been raped by a male attendee of the historic nightclub on the evening of January 19th.
Two separate live streams of the apparent rape were posted to Eiland's Facebook account. They have since been removed for nudity, but one was retrieved and sent to EDM.com.
The following day Eiland posted that she was okay, and asked that her friends refrain from calling or texting her. In a live stream she posted today, Eiland addressed some of the rumors surrounding the incident.
Opera Atlanta addressed the incident yesterday on social media by saying, "The disturbing matter that occurred last night has been brought to our attention, and we are working as diligently as possible in full cooperation with law enforcement. Last month, the same nightclub came under fire for an alleged scam involving members of its security staff.
EDM.com reached out to Opera Atlanta for comment and they responded with the following statement:
At this time we have met with the Atlanta Police Department and have provided them with everything they have requested. We will continue to aid and support their investigation in any way we can.
We have been asked to defer any further questions to the Atlanta Police Department Public Affairs Unit.
This is a developing story and this article will be updated as more information becomes available.

Last week the Netflix documentary about Fyre Festival finally went live. The film was quite comprehensive, and despite some potential ethical hang-ups was well made and informative. The ethical complaints came from the fact that Jerry Media were co-producers of the documentary as well as the social marketers of the festival itself. Rarely, if ever

Well, there’s at least one happy ending that came out of Fyre Festival…
If you watched the recent documentaries, the one on Netflix in particular, then you’ll remember Bahamian caterer Maryann Rolle. She was the woman feeding the entire Fyre crew and the excess of their island’s population as festival goers rolled in. Day and night, she and her staff worked tirelessly on keeping people fed.
As the Fyre documentary reveals, her job was a thankless one. On top of it all, she spent her personal savings, paying workers out of her own pocket. Maryann and her crew, like many others on the island, didn’t receive pay from festival organizers. Her real-life account of the Fyre experience is truly heartbreaking
“I pushed myself to the limits catering no less than a 1,000 meals per day,” Maryann explains. “Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all prepared and delivered by Exuma Point to Coco Plum Beach, and Roker’s Point where the main events were scheduled to take place.”
Thanks to viewers watching the Netflix documentary from home, she now past her $123,000 goal, currently at $135,000. GoFundMe confirms, this is a verified fundraiser.GoFundMe To Support Maryann Rolle
