Happy 30th birthday, GRiZ!
EDM's in-house funk master general, GRiZ, is celebrating his 30th birthday today by releasing a new single called "Solo."
"Solo" features hip-hop and R&B singer-songwriter and frequent collaborator ProbCause, who infuses a splash of soul into the ambient funk ballad.
Along with the single's release came an accompanying music video that is quintessential GRiZ. During the video's entirety, GRiZ dances on his rooftop under a picturesque sky, which is overlaid with neon filters to create a kaleidoscopic effect. It harkens back to GRiZ's pre-pandemic "Imaginarium" live production, which was marked by an awe-inspiring symphony of polychromatic lasers.
"Solo" is the first single off GRiZ's forthcoming Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 3 project. As of the time of writing, he hasn't divulged a release date.
Happy birthday, GRiZ!WISH GRIZ A HAPPY BIRTHDAY:
The three artists have crafted a groovy gem.
Fresh off the release of his Ruby EP, which came out earlier this year via Insomniac Records, young talent Devault makes sure to keep himself busy throughout 2020, enlisting producer Manila Killa and singer/songwriter Griff Clawson for the impactful cut “You And Me Now.” The song marks Devault’s first independent release, as he shared to fans in a social media post, and is undoubtedly one of his strongest pieces to date.
A meaningful and atmospheric house tune, “You And Me Now” quickly gets into action with a bass-heavy instrumental under Griff Clawson's emotional vocal performance before exploding into a dancefloor-friendly climax, filled with thumping kicks and ever-evolving synths.
23-year-old producer Devault has had a hell of a run within the electronic music space in recent years. His official remix for DJ Snake’s “A Different Way” was crowned by Billboard as one of their top 10 remixes of 2017, and led to various official remixes for the likes of Rihanna, 6LACK, Sabrina Claudio, Alessia Cara and Daya, as well as performances in festivals such as HARD Summer, Coachella (Heineken House), Electric Zoo, Holy Ship and more.FOLLOW DEVAULT:
Orkidea has dropped a new single entitled, “That Feeling.” The tune marks the Finnish Progressive Trance titan’s return to the VII label, and takes listeners on a hypnotic journey. Impressively, he has built a solid reputation on dreamy atmospheric melodies coupled with his signature layering of sound. Orkidea’s “That Feeling” is no exception to this …

“We’re exploring with government officials, the medical community, and key stakeholders on how to safely hold the 2020 VMAs at Barclays Center on August 30th”. They continue, “The health of everyone involved remains our number one priority. Additionally, we are working on several contingency plans to bring music’s biggest night to audiences everywhere.”
If a live show is unlikely to happen due to the coronavirus pandemic, MTV is looking at other options for the event. According to Variety, the first publication to break the news, there are plans to host virtual performances and an audience-free show. The network hopes to keep safety and health in mind when making its final decision.
It’s no secret that live events have been a no-show during quarantine. We’ve seen pretty much every music festival canceled, while public gathering are now just beginning to slowly come back. Should the VMA’s happen, MTV will have to take serious precautions to keep people safe.
New York City is currently at the epicenter of COVID-19 in the United States. However, the city is currently in the process of recovering from the impact of the virus. As time continues to pass by, things will become clearer as to whether it’s possible to host the VMAs live.
Stay tuned for more on this story.

By now, I’m sure the COVID-19 quarantine is making us all restless. The dance music industry is trying to come up with contingency plans for its future. Live entertainment and events are still on the fritz. Spain, however, is trying to tackle reopening nightclubs in a sustainable and socially acceptable way.What Does This Mean?
New rules include contactless payments, wearing masks, and drinking from ecological straws to prevent transmission of the virus. Furthermore, they’ll mark dance floors with squares indicative of individual dance spaces. Plus, restrooms will be controlled, with hand gel everywhere. VIP areas will be strongly encouraged to ensure distance between groups. Get ready for better temperature regulation as well. Every clubber headed to Spain is subject to these rules.
DJs get their own personal booths, with protective covers for their belongings. Doormen control entryways handled through a traffic light system. Nightlife Spain, the National Association of Entrepreneurs of Leisure and Shows, proposed these rules. The Spanish Government plans to adopt this in the next upcoming days.
President Ramon Mas Espinalt states it is vital for nightclubs to follow these rules in order to contain the spread of COVID-19. Their nightlife is slowly re-opening through June (in phases) to give confidence to fallen businesses and clubbers. Pay attention to the extensive hygiene and cleaning rules about to come. Disinfection of inside and outside everything will happen. As countries and businesses slowly start to re-open on our side, we should heed their protocols.
Let’s face it, things will try to return back to normal but there will be significant changes to operations of our most beloved industries. We won’t know when it is truly safe, and an unknown vaccine ETA doesn’t help.
Be prudent and respectful, now is the time to count on people’s sense of responsibility if you want things to open back up. P.S., no more sneaking into the DJ artist area.
‘Rebirth’ is the closing track on Italian DJ/Producer, Max Porcelli’s, track-titled LP. Following the lines of a modern jazz production, ‘Rebirth’ finds rhythm with a low, rumbling bassline followed by snares and cymbals that bring a melody to life. It’s a tune to turn on when you want to dance alone in the dark. The song serves as the perfect closer to Porcelli’s ground breaking album.
Max Porcelli currently operates his own record label, 989 Records, that has put out releases for the better part of a decade. In addition to his own label, Porcelli has put out tracks on Pacha Recordings, Streetlab, and Rise Records. His achievements in music have many aspiring and veteran musicians in Italy giving nods to accolades.

Diplo is taking quarantine quite well, by all metrics. On top of weekly (or even more frequent) live streams as well as his first country album out now, he’s also making his character debut in a new film out, The High Note.
The producer/DJ has made appearances in film before, most recently playing a small part as himself in the Detective Pikachu film. But this marks his first character and speaking role in a motion picture, playing record producer Richie ‘R. Dubs’ Williams.
“The character is a version of what I am; a way cheesier version,” explains the real-life producer, DJ and songwriter, in the production notes.
The High Note is the story of Grace Davis, played by Tracee Ellis Ross, “a superstar whose talent, and ego, have reached unbelievable heights.” Like many movies of its kind, the main conflict involves Davis’ manager who “presents her with a choice that could alter the course of her career, Maggie [her overworked assistant] and Grace come up with a plan that could change their lives forever.”
In an interview with ET!, Ellis Ross said of Diplo, “He’s so funny. I called him to show him the final film and he’s like, ‘How’s it going? You think I’m going to get an Oscar?’ And I said, ‘I don’t think so, Wes. I don’t think they give Oscars to comedies.’ And he was like, ‘Ahh, good point. All right, should we do a drama?’ And then he proceeded to pitch me a movie where he is Mozart and The Rock is Beethoven. And I was like, ‘And Kevin Hart could be Salieri!’ And he was like, ‘Who that?’ I was like, ‘Never mind.'”
You can watch the film on demand on streaming services now — check out a clip of Diplo’s performance below.

After a successful Miami broadcast, David Guetta is bringing his "United At Home" series to the city that never sleeps.
David Guetta is now broadcasting live from New York for a monumental 90-minute set, which you can livestream below. Guetta's "United at Home" show is fundraising live on Facebook and Instagram, with donations supporting the World Health Organization, Feeding America, and the French Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris in the ongoing fight against COVID-19. The livestream event will also raise money for the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City.
This marks Guetta's second "United at Home" concert, and his first in New York City. The previous edition, which took place in Miami, raised over $700,000 for COVID-19 relief and was viewed by millions on social media.
"As a DJ, the crowd is the most important part of any show and even though we can’t be together in a club or at a festival, we can use this time to come together in new ways and help those who need it most," Guetta recently declared in a press statement. To that end, he's aiming to bring people together from around the world through the power of music and the iconic New York City backdrop.
Although the world is in a period of social distancing, Guetta has been creative in his approach, previously creating the opportunity for a live-viewing element for local residents. Residents of Miami's Icon Brickell complex had the chance to view and listen from their apartment balconies as Guetta performed below.FOLLOW DAVID GUETTA:

The Netherlands' Sir Adam Hotel is set to host a socially distanced music festival for up to 120 attendees next month, on June 20th.
The Dutch collective No Art is hosting their first hotel event, which will combine music, dining, and art into a 24-hour experience.

Shawn Wasabi‘s debut album is finally here!
MANGOTALE is described as a body of work that reflects personal growth, musical maturity and this summer’s biggest pop anthems. Nostalgic beats with Nintendo-inspired innocence is the name of the game and the sound design is drool-worthy to say the least.
Wasabi has crafted a versatile collection of polished pop cuts reinforced by an all-female crew of singer-songwriters including kennedi, raychel jay, Tia Scola and more. The 12-track album includes today’s new single, “Medicine,” the project is the perfect stay-at-home soundtrack.
Shawn tells the story of MANGOTALE in his own words:
MANGOTALE is my first full-length project & I’m incredibly excited for people to listen to it! I produced almost the entire thing on my laptop at home! I’ve changed, developed & grown so much over the last five years – my understanding of the world, of myself & my personality; being disassembled & reassembled; making friends; the people I’ve interacted with & my different musical inspirations/mentors. I feel like this project perfectly expresses that shift while also channeling the energy & emotion I had in those different chapters of my life. MANGOTALE also flexes a lot of my musical range between collaborative pop energy production and weird knob-twiddling audio manipulation sound design.

Calvin Harris reminded us recently that even the most successful producers started from humble beginnings. As he announced the news of his forthcoming Defected Records debut, titled "Live Without Your Love," Calvin Harris also shared a letter from over twenty years ago dating back to when the superstar producer submitted his first demo to the label.
The handwritten letter was from Defected's founder, Simon Dunmore, who thanked young Adam Wiles, Calvin Harris' real name, for his submission. Although the demo did not fit the label, Dunmore seemed impressed by the submission and eager to stay in touch.View the original article to see embedded media.
Years later, Calvin Harris has progressed from bedroom producer to the upper echelon of the both the dance music community and the mainstream. Despite the passing of time, Wiles and Dunmore have remained in touch. It was reportedly during a Calvin Harris livestream event that an unreleased demo of "Live Without Your Love" caught the attention of Defected's A&R team, leading the label to ultimately sign the track. Subsequently, Calvin Harris played a set as Love Regenerator for the recent Defected Records Virtual Festival.
The new Calvin Harris single "Live Without Your Love" features Steve Lacy and is due out on June 11th, 2020.FOLLOW CALVIN HARRIS:
Summer madness is here early this year as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are back with another humongous collab. This time DVLM have teamed up with Dutch powerhouses W&W and Fedde Le Grand for “Clap Your Hands.” This track is a massive main stage festival anthem and has been a feature of DVLM and W&W’s sets for a while. Now “Clap Your Hands” is finally available. DVLM and W&W have teamed up many times before on some massive festival bangers, however, seeing Fedde Le Grand on here is a pleasant surprise. He’s never linked up with W&W and he last teamed up with DVLM back in 2015 on “Tales of Tomorrow.” Just seeing the talent behind this track is enough to catch anyone’s attention.
“Clap Your Hands” immediately opens with a vocoded vocal urging everybody to clap their hands. Again, if you’ve seen any of these artists’ recent sets, you’ll immediately recognize it. The vocal line is like when Mac’s first came out and one of the coolest things you could do was make vocal effects. From there we get epic synths leading into a trademark DVLM buildup into a crazy drop that features tons of cool soundscapes and demands nothing less than jumping up and down with one’s hands in the air. When it comes to festival anthems, this is a dream team right here.
Check out the latest from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike x W&W x Fedde Le Grand, “Clap Your Hands” out now on Smash the House. Re live some quarantine live streams including W&W’s insane XR set.
