Imagine Festival Expands to Four Days, Releases Full Lineup

EDM.com - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 16:15

Imagine Festival will take over the Atlanta Motor Speedway from September 19th-22nd.

Imagine Festival is set to host its 2019 edition at the Atlanta Motor Speedway from September 19th-22nd. In an attempt to make the festival the most immersive one yet, they announced an additional fourth day of full music programming as well as camping. 

Iris Presents announced that with the expansion to four days, there will be an additional day of music programming on the Disco Inferno stage as well as early arrival camping. They also announced that the added day will be free to everyone who has already purchased a three-day ticket for a limited time until August 15th. 

Imagine has also unveiled the full lineup with a number of additions. Artist announcements aside, they have also added on a dedicated TechYes/Guerrilla 360 stage featuring a full tech house lineup.  

50+ artists are set to play the festival across multiple stages. A few of the standouts include Diplo, Rezz, Above & Beyond, Alison Wonderland, G Jones, Louis The Child, Rusko and Nora En Pure

In addition to four days of music, the camping experience also got extended. For imaginers looking to get a head start on the week, the camping grounds will be open for early arrival on Thursday, September 19th. Unlike those with festival tickets, however, attendees with three-day camping passes will need to purchase an additional early arrival camping pass in order to arrive at the grounds on Thursday. 

Imagine has also partnered with Beatbox Beverages to host a daytime pool party on Saturday, September 21st. In what is proposed to be a Vegas-style pool party, all attendees except VIP camp ticket holders will need to add on the pool party to their ticket. The lineup for the party will be announced in the coming weeks.

Türküm releases deeply personal debut album “Anti-Sober”

Türküm releases deeply personal debut album “Anti-Sober”CoverPressPic Türküm Anti Sober

Türküm returns from a relatively quiet year with a thunderous debut album that is as heavy-hitting as it is deeply personal and poignant. The 11-track album, “Anti-Sober,” is an exploration of his years-long struggle with alcohol. Locked in a battle of ego and excess, the album represents his downward spiral and eventual redemption for the troubled and talented producer. Over the course of its 26 minute run time, “Anti-Sober” runs the gamut of human emotion, from fear, anger, loneliness, sadness and finally hope, all through richly produced soundscapes and a cinematic filter. Packed with adrenaline-laced highs and somber lows “Anti-Sober” ebbs and flows while it builds and drops. From the intensity of “Beast” and “Power” to the frenetic aggression of “Your Heart,” the album’s front half is not for the feint of heart. A clear manifestation of his anger and addiction. The second half explodes with the highs of his redemption.

Like a phoenix from the ashes, Turkum changes his sound on the album’s second half. Closing tracks “Starlight” and “Treat Me Right” brighten things up with upbeat vocals and classic house melodies that end things on a literal high note. The album itself is an honest portrayal of the ups and downs of artistic pursuits, giving a peak into the psyche of a producer caught in the grips of a crisis — and his eventual re-emergence into the light.

Diplo Goes in Depth on His Burning Man Fundraiser [INTERVIEW]

EDM.com - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 15:04

A Q&A with the mainstream king supporting seven crews on the playa.

On July 6th, The Midway in San Francisco was ground zero for a four-stage block party with Diplo, Mr. Carmack, Jonas Rathsman, Kenny Glasgow, Sharam, Super Flu and more. The team-up was appropriately named The Menagerie. Diplo’s collaboration at The Midway was held as a fundraiser in support of signature Burning Man sound camps like Opulent Temple, Camp Question Mark, Root Society, and Duck Pond. The evening also included performances by the Dancetronauts, and art cars like Rynobus and Bounce

The Midway is known to host Burning Man Fundraisers for Bay Area camps and crews, but the Menagerie was one for the ages. The festivities literally stopped traffic at Michigan and Marin Streets so that the two walloping indoor stages could be accompanied by two additional stages outside.

To learn more about Diplo’s involvement in the fundraiser and Burning Man Project we went to the man himself. Read along to see what he had to say.

EDM: What did you most look forward to about The Menagerie?

Diplo: Just the fact that [it was] a day party with good vibes in one of the most musically diverse cities in the U.S.! It’s been a long time since we did Mad Decent Block Party in Berkeley which was always so fun, so I'm excited to get back and have a good time with that crowd.

Why should I be sure to catch the show if I’m a Burner/supporter of Burning Man? If I’m a fan of dance music?

I have played at or collaborated with all the camps involved in some way. So you’re going to get a bit of everything you would expect from riding around the playa. I'm doing my deep house project and party called Higher Ground but am also involving wiggly bass artists like Mr. Carmack. Just expect underground and dance music at its best.

Why did you go to Burning Man the first time and why do you keep coming back?

First time was about seven years ago just because I love the desert. I just decided to go because everyone told me it couldn't be described and that was intriguing to me.

What’s your best “one time at Burning Man...” story?

There are so many. There have been a dozen sunrises playing music that only made sense in that moment. There was the set I did with Skrillex during a dust storm a few years back, I loved the reggae and afro beat sets at Robot Heart for sunset (which no one expected but everyone always comes with an open mind so it turned out to be one of the best parties). Finding old friends out there after not having seen people for years, and being turned on to new music and vibes each time.

Which of the 10 Burning Man Principles do you identify with most? Why?

Just embracing something fantastic and new, and not to indulge in the sameness. Everything at BM is internal so you're going to discover it immediately. You don't need someone to tell you the principles!

What words of advice would you offer a friend considering going to Burning Man for the first time?

Just drop any expectations or ideas you might have. Sometimes social media distorts a picture of the event but you have to see it to believe it. Also, bring lots of water.

Chance The Rapper has been teasing the long-awaited follow up to 2016’s Grammy Award-winning mixtape Coloring Book for the better part of the year, though he’s largely kept the LP’s details close to the vest. Without much more info than the fact that the collection is being marketed as Chance’s debut album (his first three releases were all mixtapes), and that it would be landing sometime in July, the Chicago-native emcee has kept the hip-hop world eagerly at the edge of its seat for most of 2019. Now, following an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that aired on July 16, Chano has revealed the record’s name, artwork design, and official release date.

Skrillex Rumored to Release Show Tracks EP This Week

EDM.com - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 14:08

One of Skrillex's upcoming bodies of work may be right around the corner.

Two months ago, Skrillex revealed to fans that a longer body of work (or two) lay out on the horizon. By the looks of an apparent leak, the first of them may be the two-song Show Tracks EP this Friday, July 19th.

The information arrives by way of a post from Bassland, a page on Russian social media platform known for sharing details of releases a couple days before they reach the general public. The two tracks comprising the effort will apparently be an Alvin Risk collaboration titled "Fuji Opener" (which Skrillex shared in a recent Instagram live stream) and a song called "Mumbai Power" featuring Beam.

Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) recently collaborated with Boys Noize on a four-track EP titled Turn Off The Lights. He also joined forces with TroyBoi on "WARLORDZ" and looks to team up with him once again, this next time with Ludmilla, Lan and Ty Dolla $ign in tow.

Moore has made no comments in regards to the validity of the Show Tracks EP leak at the time of writing.

Steve Aoki & Darren Criss Release Unexpected Cover Of Dave Matthews Band “Crash Into Me”

Latest from Your EDM - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 14:05

Steve Aoki & Darren Criss Release Unexpected Cover Of Dave Matthews Band “Crash Into Me”

Growing up, my dad had me listening to a lot of Dave Matthews Band. Of course my musical library was more than that, but I always remember listening to songs like “Ants Marching” and “Where Are You Going.” And, of course, “Crash Into Me”…

Now, 23 years after the original release of the song, Steve Aoki and Darren Criss (“American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace”) have taken the song and delivered an unexpected cover we never thought possible.

“Darren and I wanted to do something different and surprising out of the gate with our collaboration,” said Aoki. “We bonded over classics and this surely was one of them. We hope you like our version of the iconic DMB Crash.”

“Steve Aoki and I both share a love for reinvigorating familiar songs by fusing them with seemingly unconnected musical styles. And for as long as I’d had this wild idea of transforming Dave Matthews seminal ballad ‘Crash Into Me’ into a dance track, I always thought Steve would be the perfect person to bring it to life,” said Criss. “So when we finally got the opportunity to meet, I was beyond psyched that Steve was as into the concept as I was, and we began working on it almost immediately. The total unexpectedness of it, the unapologetic fun of it, and of course the deep love of Dave Matthews we both had made creating this version together an absolute blast.”

Criss imparts a more modern pop spin on the track with his delicate vocals, compared to Dave Matthews’ grungier cadence. For Aoki’s part, the chorus is transformed into a upbeat, poppy drop that’s great for drives on the coast, wind in your hair. It’s a curious collaboration and an even more seemingly random choice to cover the classic, yet, here we are.

FaceApp Age Challenge Brings Up Security Concerns After Old Person Filter Goes Viral

Latest from Your EDM - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 13:04

Yesterday, AI photo editor app FaceApp went viral on social media as celebrities, athletes, and musicians all shared their faces with an age challenge old person filter. As more celebrities downloaded and utilized the app, the usage spread until millions were downloading and using it. Now, however, tech sources are raising security concerns about the app.

As many flash in the pan apps do, FaceApp already went viral two or so years ago with a more rudimentary version of its photo editing software. Returning this year, it has reignited security concerns as the core R&D group is located in Russia.

In its Terms & Conditions, writes New York Post, the app includes “they have the right to modify, reproduce and publish any of the images you process through its AI.” This raises concerns about using users’ photos for commercial purposes, especially as the threat of Russian interference in elections is looming overhead.

According to TechCrunch, the app cannot see your entire photo library unless you give it permission, even if you are still able to edit photos — at least on iOS. This is due to certain API permissions that enable an app to let a user pick a single photo to work on.

9to5Mac first published a story about security concerns based off a tweet from tech author Joshua Nozzi. However, the allegation that FaceApp “immediately uploads your photos without asking, whether you chose one or not” was debunked by security researcher Elliot Alderson in a separate Twitter thread.

FaceApp issued a statement addressing most of the concerns regarding its security and practices:

We are receiving a lot of inquiries regarding our privacy policy and therefore, would like to provide a few points that explain the basics:

1. FaceApp performs most of the photo processing in the cloud. We only upload a photo selected by a user for editing. We never transfer any other images from the phone to the cloud.

2. We might store an uploaded photo in the cloud. The main reason for that is performance and traffic: we want to make sure that the user doesn’t upload the photo repeatedly for every edit operation. Most images are deleted from our servers within 48 hours from the upload date.

3. We accept requests from users for removing all their data from our servers. Our support team is currently overloaded, but these requests have our priority. For the fastest processing, we recommend sending the requests from the FaceApp mobile app using “Settings->Support->Report a bug” with the word “privacy” in the subject line. We are working on the better UI for that.

4. All FaceApp features are available without logging in, and you can log in only from the settings screen. As a result, 99% of users don’t log in; therefore, we don’t have access to any data that could identify a person.

5. We don’t sell or share any user data with any third parties.

6. Even though the core R&D team is located in Russia, the user data is not transferred to Russia.

Additionally, we’d like to comment on one of the most common concerns: all pictures from the gallery are uploaded to our servers after a user grants access to the photos (for example, https://twitter.com/joshuanozzi/status/1150961777548701696).  We don’t do that. We upload only a photo selected for editing. You can quickly check this with any of network sniffing tools available on the internet.

As always, it’s up to the consumer to do their due diligence when allowing unknown apps permission to possibly sensitive material. Good advice is to never download apps like this on work computers or phones, and always read the permissions carefully before installing.

Illenium and The Chainsmokers Tease "Takeaway" Music Video

EDM.com - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 12:47

Illenium and The Chainsmokers have given their fans a "little surprise."

It's been over three months since Illenium and The Chainsmokers first debuted their collaboration at the 2019 edition of Ultra Music Festival. Finally, the three artists have gone to inventive lengths to tease the music video and official release of "Takeaway" featuring Lennon Stella.

As part of a guerrilla promotion, Illenium (real name Nicholas D. Miller) and The Chainsmokers (real names Alex Pall and Drew Taggart) shared a phone number promising a "little surprise" to anyone who adds them as a contact on the platform Community.com. Once they do so, fans are treated to a 15-second video clip of the "Takeaway" music video showing the producers and vocalist exploring the Vessel structure in Manhattan, New York City.

In the simulated text message exchange used to promote the video clip, Illenium and The Chainsmokers also revealed plans to officially release the single, although no concrete date has been specified at present. The former artist will continue his tour with a back-to-back set alongside Excision at Global Dance Festival in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, July 20th. The latter duo will take to the stage at Vieilles Charrues Festival in Carhaix-Plouguer, France on July 18th followed by Tomorrowland and Parookaville performances on the 19th and 20th, respectively.
