Coronavirus Weakening in Italy, Top Italian Doctor Says.

34 min 31 sec ago
“The strength the virus had two months ago is not the same strength it has today,” said Matteo Bassetti, head of the infectious diseases clinic at the San Martino hospital in the city of Genoa.

ROME – As the lockdown restrictions around the world are slowly being loosened, Italy (a country who was hit the hardest by Covid-19) is noticing that the novel coronavirus is weakening.

“In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” A statement made by Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan.

“The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” Zangrillo said

There has been opposition to the idea that the coronavirus is weakening.

According to Maria van Kerkhove, the technical lead at WHO, the coronavirus continues to infect people at the same rate as when the pandemic started, and the same proportion of people — about 20% — develop severe cases.

“Pending scientific evidence to support the thesis that the virus has disappeared … I would invite those who say they are sure of it not to confuse Italians,” stated Sandra Zampa, an undersecretary at the health ministry, reported by Reuters.

“We should instead invite Italians to maintain the maximum caution, maintain physical distancing, avoid large groups, to frequently wash their hands and to wear masks.”

Furthermore executive director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Program, Michael Ryan commented that it is unlikely that the virus has mutated.

“It may not be that the virus itself is becoming less potent,” Ryan said. “It may be that we are — as a community and as a global community — successfully reducing the number, intensity, and frequency of exposure to the virus, which, on the face of it, the virus then looks weaker.”

SLANDER & Jason Ross Team Up For New Track ‘Better Than Heaven’

5 hours 41 min ago

This is one we’ve waited for. A collaboration long expected. SLANDER and Jason Ross have finally teamed up on a new track titled ‘Better Than Heaven’. Featuring JT Roach, vocalist for Slander’s mega-hit ‘Potions’, it was released on the 21st of May.

Jason Ross & Slander Collab SLANDER And Ross Come Together

Ross, one of the hottest talents inside melodic bass, is back. This time, he finally teams up with one of the industry’s favorite duos. SLANDER has been on top of the bass industry for a while know and are one of the most influential artists in the current American scene. Together, these three have created something new and something magical. Something, “better than heaven”.

The track opens up with soft chords and Roach’s voice. Everything is beautifully paired as the track ascends with more and more energy. Then, after a heavy riser, comes the drop. Hitting with an angelical arpeggio, the drop turns into a full on symphony. Simply beautiful. Paired with Roach’s hook this is truly an amazing song.

The song, which was released through SLANDER’S label, Gud Vibrations, is magnificent. A perfect creation in which 2 similar, yet different styles, come together to give us a masterpiece.

Now might not be the time for dance music. However, one day, after we’ve defeated all of this, we will come back together. Stronger. United. We, as a community will one day return to our world. The world that sees no color, no race, no religion. The world that embraces nothing but love. A world, better than heaven.

While many festivals are already looking forward to next year’s edition, Dancefestopia shows its positivity. In fact, it is expecting its 9th Anniversary to continue on in a safe and “almost” normal way. Other festivals, like EDC, also changed dates to Autumn, but there is nothing definitive yet.

At the time this article sees the light, Dancefestopia will take place according to the original plan. The organization will most likely implement better safety and hygiene measures to preserve the health of the attendees.

Kryder & Tom Staar feat. Ebson – Waiting On My Love

12 hours 27 min ago

Kryder returns with Tom Staar for a summery, infectious vocal track titled ‘Waiting On My Love‘. Releasing on Axwell’s imprint, Axtone Records, this song is chock full of piano house vibes, and rolling, pumped-up beats.

Right off the bat, the piano keys strike, and the melody sets the pace for the piece. Already, your bodies start moving to its groove. Ebson chimes in on vocals and the chorus builds up for the catchy drop. If this doesn’t scream poolside jams, I don’t know what does.

This is Kryder and Staar’s first collaboration since ‘Jericho’, released on Steve Angello’s SIZE Records. that house groove hit has been a classic among the house movement for six years now. Since then, they’ve been working together and even founded a joint music imprint, Cartel.

Giving us their take on a summer anthem, this latest tune celebrates 15 years of Axtone. The two artists have brought numerous memories and releases to the label. They’ve also delivered memorable performances on Axtone stages around the world. Now that Kryder lives in Ibiza, we can see where the inspiration comes from for this summer-inspired Balearic banger.

Their 1-hour b2b mix, live-streamed from Ibiza can be found here. Since the quarantine, Kryder continues to live stream from his tropical residence 24/7. His Axtone residency is not going to waste, while he shows off his future cross-genre releases on Spinnin‘, Sony, Musical Freedom, Kryteria, and Sosumi Records (both his own label!).

More About The Artist

From obscurity to one of the most sought-after names in dance music, Kryder’s career path is stepping out of the shadows. He takes on big room firepower and invigorates his audience on the dance floor and industry. Garnering support from Pete Tong, Fatboy Slim, Steve Angello, Axwell, and more, you’ll want to watch out for this guy.

Carnage Shares Plans for First ROAD RAVE [INTERVIEW]

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 23:25

Recently, music producer Carnage announced that he will be hosting the first-ever drive-in event in the United States. Taking place in Orlando, the RAVE ROAD will occur on June 6th while maintaining social distancing guidelines.

Considering that it is the first of its kind in North America, it may be a little confusing as to how the event will function. Thankfully, we had the chance to speak with the clever music artist about what is in store for the exciting festival.

ROAD RAVE Orlando You are officially organizing the first-ever drive-in music festival in North America. What led you to come up with this clever concept?

I saw what they were doing in Europe and I was like fuck, I gotta bring this to the States. I mostly wanted to do something historic for the fans… I want to keep live events happening because they’re a source of positivity for people all across the world. It’s all about bringing the fans together in a safe way for me. People need an outlet and something to look forward to in these times and events/music can provide that for them. 

This might end up being one of the first US festivals of the COVID era. Does that make you nervous?

Not at all, I’ve always been a trendsetter and pushing the boundaries of my whole career. I’m confident in my team. We brought in Disco Donnie for Orlando and Relentless Beats in AZ. These guys are some of the best in the biz. 

Why did you specifically choose to bring The RAVE ROAD to Orlando? 

I have mad love for Orlando. I brought RARE to Orlando in 2016 and that was WILD, we ended up doing 3 RARE shows there 2016-2018.  The shows were some of my favorites because all the homies were on the lineup before they blew up like Marshmello and Travis Scott. I’ve gotten tweets for years asking me to do something big in Orlando and this was the perfect opportunity to do it right. 

How is this drive-in event going to be different than any show you’ve done before?

It’s the same but different I guess. I’ve never performed for a crowd of cars so that’s definitely a first. Despite that, I’m still bringing a massive stage with full special effects and dropping the old and new shit that will put you in your feels, then make you want to headbang out of your sunroof. This is 100% for the fans, and I produced it with them in mind. I’m still working with the venue and medical professionals (as always) to create the safest plan for our fans while still letting them enjoy the show and have some fun! 

As promised, your event will aim to maintain social distancing guidelines on the day of the show. How will you ensure that these guidelines remain in place?

Like I kinda touched on before, I’m working with the venue, promoters, and some medical professionals to make this the safest event possible. Any safety concerns Disco Donnie or Relentless can address! 

The ROAD RAVE will have performances from not only yourself, but from Riot Ten, NITTI GRITTI, Blunts & Blondes, and GRAVEDGR. What led you to choose these specific artists to become a part of this one-of-a-kind event?

Putting together the lineups for shows is one of my favorite things… I tell everyone, if I wasn’t a DJ, I would be an A&R at some label. I knew as soon as we locked in Orlando I wanted to get all my Florida boys onboard. This was about to become a full-blown festival. With that in mind, I called up Blunts & Blondes and Nitti Gritti and they locked it within seconds. Those dudes are both crushing it right now. Riot Ten has made some big moves and I fuck with his music and vibes, he is def gonna throw down. GRAVEDGR is my boy, he has been dropping steady heat on my label Heavyweight and the fans love him. This is the perfect festival lineup for all the bass heads out there. 

You will soon be releasing your very own documentary, “The Price of Greatness: A Look Into The Misunderstood.” Tell us about it. 

This is a project I’ve been working on for a long time. This seemed like the perfect time to finally release it. It’s a really up close and personal look at my life, what it’s like being a touring DJ, and just my outlook on life. I’m excited to share this with my fans and let them get a look at who I am beyond the stage. There are some really magical moments in there from being in the studio with Mac Miller, my first Ultra Mainstage in 2016, to some never before seen or heard Avicii music and video.  It’s out now on my YouTube! 

A portion of the proceeds from The RAVE ROAD and your documentary will be going to the ANF COVID-19 Relief Fund. What made you choose this one?

It’s no secret I’m from Nicaragua and have mad love for my homeland. I wanted to do something to give back to them and help in these hard times. It’s been tough on people here in the states but it’s even harder in countries like Nicaragua where they are already struggling just to have basic necessities for everyday life. 

Do you have any final thoughts that you would like to share?

I’m doing another Road Rave in Phoenix, AZ on May 30th, it got dropped the day after Orlando. I wanted to do something for the west coast fans too. I called up my boys 4B, Valentino Khan, Saymyname, Dr. Fresch, Bijou, and Paz for this one. It’s gonna be wild. I’m ready to get back on the road and in front of the fans doing what I love.

Ibiza Rocks to Reopen July 1

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 23:23

As Spain begins to lift its quarantine, the famed Ibiza Rocks will start to host pool parties daily beginning on July 1. Major airlines will also start to offer flights (at great prices, might we add) to Ibiza after this date.

Ibiza Rocks is an open air, daytime venue — which makes it relatively safe following the COVID-19 pandemic. While the typical schedule will have to change a bit, they promise exciting new “Poolside Sessions.” Guests can expect lots of smiles, dancing, and good vibes as the dance the day away in the blistering sun to some of their favorite beats and guest DJs.

While Ibiza’s tourist season usually starts in April, due to COVID, things have changed a bit. This is all great news for the island, since a majority of their economy is built on tourism. Many people actually felt there would be no tourists this summer.

For more information about the summer pool parties and events, visit the Ibiza Rocks website!

Sunset Music Festival Reschedules (Again) To Winter Holidays Weekend

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 23:18

Sunset Music Festival, initially postponed from Memorial Day weekend to July 4 weekend due to COVID-19, has been rescheduled yet again – to another holiday weekend. The dance music festival in Tampa, Florida, is now slated for right after Christmas. Save the date for December 26 and 27. 

Organizers announced the change on Friday along with the festival’s new name, Sunset 2.0: The Gift Edition

“We knew it was a longshot AND we really wanted us all to be together—but the window has closed on the ability to put on a safe festival on the Fourth of July weekend,” the Sunset organizers said in a statement. The organizers, which include Disco Donnie and Sunset Events, stated they “looked at all options” before offering fans “a special edition of Sunset during the holidays.”

“We acknowledge this is not what any of us wants to hear, but we need to take all necessary precautions under these unprecedented times,” the Sunset team stated. “We love you and we cannot wait to get back to the party, in a safe environment along with the quality of operations and production that you come to expect from us.” 

Sunsetters, Please view the following link for updated information regarding Sunset 2.0 ???? smftampa.com

Posted by Sunset Music Festival on Friday, May 29, 2020

With so many spring and summer music festivals canceling their 2020 editions and punting to 2021, the Sunset team’s efforts for December are appreciated by dance music fans. However, December isn’t guaranteed safe ground. Some public health experts are bracing for a possible second coronavirus wave in the fall. But if December pans out for Sunset, attendees may enjoy temperatures of around 75 degrees, versus 90 degrees in July. 

Sunset 2.0 Lineup

DJs originally booked for Sunset 2.0 included Alison Wonderland, Chris Lake, Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize), Kaskade, Illenium, Fisher, Zedd, and Zeds Dead. Regarding whether the artists will remain the same, the festival’s frequently asked questions section states they are “working to develop the lineup, which will be announced when the global situation becomes more stable.”

Already purchased tickets will be automatically transferred to the December event. They’ll also include a $25 food and beverage credit, $25 merchandise credit, and first dibs at 2021 tickets at the lowest price. Ticket buyers who desire refunds can fill out a request form by November 22. Organizers say the lineup will be released before the final day for refunds. Disco Donnie tweeted that refunds will be available “until the day the wristbands ship for the new date.”

Refunds available until the day the wristbands ship for the new date.

— Disco Donnie (@RealDiscoDonnie) May 29, 2020

Single-day tickets are expected to go on sale when the artists schedule by day and set times are released.

In years past, the two-day festival has drawn more than 50,000 people to Raymond James Stadium. The festival features a sunset-shaped main stage. In 2018, the festival expanded from three to five stages.

Returning To Normal

Some restaurants, stores, and beaches in Tampa Bay began reopening in early May. Central Florida’s first rave since the lockdown, Carnage’s ROAD RAVE drive-in concert, is scheduled for June 6 in Orlando.

Regular raves are in the works in other states. Dancefestopia is moving forward for September 10 to 13 in Kansas City. Imagine Music Festival is planned for September 18 to 20 in Atlanta. Ultra Music Festival in Miami was the first casualty of the pandemic in March, and is not returning until 2021. Time will tell if the third time’s the charm for Sunset Music Festival.

Bart Skils — Settle In The Sun — Drumcode — DC226

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 23:14

Bart Skils returns to Drumcode for his first ninth EP since 2018. Titled ‘Settle In The Sun‘, it consists of three sensational techno tracks for your listening pleasure.

These new productions come straight from his studio after six months of hard work. ‘Settle In The Sun‘ is the titled track and channels Venice Beach’s skate culture and energy. He used an extended stay in LA over New Years as inspiration for this track. He never ceases to amaze us with his range in melodies. Listen for that uplifting, big riff of a weaponized drop.

Tropical Heat’ comes next and starts off with evocative chants followed by a rave-kissed melody. That drumline is everything and gives it that sinful rolling groove. Skils’ inspiration with this one comes from his travels to South America. Aptly named for its climate, we can see this playing as we explore the mountains and highlands in its natural heat.

Shiva Says’ closes out the EP as the third track. It is a peak-time, brain-bender in the best of ways. The monster synth line drives the track forward, as it grows and progresses into an anthem for this deity. Acidic, electric synths grind your ears in ways you never knew you needed when it comes to his kind of techno.

As you know, Bart continues to be one of the label’s most consistent achievers going back to 2012. His debut on this label is one of the greatest gifts dance music has given to us. He has built a stellar repertoire of eight original EPs, a stunning remix of Moby’s ‘Go’, and DC treasure/collaboration with Adam Beyer ‘Your Mind’. Plus, he regularly plays with other heavyweights of the genre. Mmm, mmm, do we love techno.

Now, listen to the new EP below.

David Guetta Mocked for George Floyd Tribute During NYC Livestream

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 15:02

“Shout out to his family”, David Guetta said in a tribute to George Floyd. Talk about cringeworthy.

The Titanium DJ came under fire on social media for the tribute which he made during his live-streamed fundraising event this past Saturday. The event took place on a New York City rooftop to raise money for coronavirus relief charities.

“The world is going through difficult times and America, too, actually,” Guetta said during the performance. “Last night, I knew we were going to do this and I made a special record … in honor of George Floyd. I really hope we can see more unity and more peace when already things are so difficult.”

Viewers had strong and slightly amusing opinions about Guetta’s tribute on Twitter.

One user tweeted,”They really gonna oontz oontz racism away”.

“There’ve been a lot of crimes committed against my ppl this weekend, but David Guetta putting a drop behind MLK’s ‘I have a dream’ speech is up there,” tweeted Rolling Stone writer Charles Holmes.

“Yes David Guetta,” wrote Irish journalist Áine McMahon, “I’m sure that’s exactly what George Floyd would have wanted… an EDM banger sampling Martin Luther King.”

Tomorrowland Teases with Mysterious Countdown

Mon, 06/01/2020 - 12:20

If you visited Tomorrowland‘s Website this weekend, you must have seen this new countdown. It started a few days ago and was followed by a mysterious video on the festival’s socials.

Soon… https://t.co/56O4G2BX8r pic.twitter.com/NjPztJ9RQ8

— Tomorrowland (@tomorrowland) June 1, 2020

We all know that Tomorrowland will not go under the radar, or without any unique announcement while we wait for the 2021 edition. And this new countdown proves this to be true.

Only last Tuesday, Tomorrowland hosted the last edition of United Through Music last, after weeks of bringing world-class DJ acts to everyone’s home.

What can we expect? Many are betting on a virtual event to be taking place during the canceled 2020 Tomorrowland weekends in July.

Others are speculating on an extra weekend to be announced for 2021. This would allow more fans to enjoy the festival. Note that all ticket holders for the 2020 edition were offered to keep their tickets for 2021. This will make getting a ticket for next year practically impossible.

All these options are very likely, but only the end of the countdown will give us the answer. The timer will end this Thursday at 3 pm CEST ( 9 am EDT, 6 am PDT). What are your guesses? Stay tuned to figure out what Tomorrowland has in store for us with this countdown.

Music Industry Calls for Tuesday, June 2 Black Out

Sun, 05/31/2020 - 21:11

2020 has been the year of COVID-19Until it Wasn’t. Queue the death of George Floyd, & the music industry “Black out“.

On May 25, 2020, George Floyd, an African-American man, was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, by a Minneapolis police officer. If you’ve paid attention to the news, or just the social climate in recent years, you’d know that this isn’t the first time an unarmed African American man has been killed by the police in the United States. The music industry is now calling for a Tuesday, June 2 blackout, in solidarity with the ongoing issue of police brutality.

Black Out

This has sparked mass protests across the nation. The protests range from various cities like Minneapolis to New York City, and even as far as Los Angeles. If you’ve seen social media at all within the last few days, I’m sure you’re more than aware of everything going on. In response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis, the Music Industry has come together to take a united stand on Tuesday, June 2, by way of a Blackout.

A message circulated widely on Instagram and other social media platforms have called for “a day to disconnect from work and reconnect with our community”. As per the original post, this is being done as “an urgent step of action to provoke accountability and change.”. To this, I say bravo. It is a beautiful thing to see those with a platform, use it for good.

Columbia Records was the first of many, to publicly decry injustices towards “underserved populations”. Columbia Records chairman Ron Perry posted late on Thursday night (May 28):

“We stand together with the Black community against all forms of racism, bigotry, and violence. Now, more than ever we must use our voices to speak up and challenge the injustices all around us.”

You can find the original message in regards to the Tuesday, June 2 Blackout, below. If you are out protesting, be safe.

MTV to Possibly Hold the 36th Annual VMAs Live

Sun, 05/31/2020 - 09:56

Music publication Billboard has revealed that MTV hopes to hold the 36th Annual Video Music Awards live this summer in New York. According to a statement made by a MTV spokesperson,

“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.

Spain Plans To Reopen Nightlife With Some Rules

Sat, 05/30/2020 - 22:21

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.

Giddy Up: Diplo’s Debut Country Album is Here

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 12:54

You might have missed your chance to win a free burrito from Chipotle last night, but you haven’t missed your chance to listen to Diplo’s new debut Country Album, Diplo Presents Thomas Wesley Chapter 1: Snake Oil. Today, under the moniker Thomas Wesley, Diplo has released 14 tracks that are much different than the Diplo many of us know.

Diplo at the 2019 AMA’s Red Carpet

While this “new side” of Diplo shouldn’t come as a shock to many – being that Diplo has been producing country music since April 2019, this LP is very different than all of the others. Coming off the heels of Diplo’s wildly popular song, ‘On My Mind (ft: Sidepiece)‘, you can expect to hear more violins, guitars, and piano playing with a twist of country twang on this latest album. 

For those of you who thought this was a joke, Diplo has went and proved us wrong. Not only by producing solid music, but by getting some of the biggest names in country music to join in. Some of the feature artists you can expect to hear are country music stars Thomas Rhett, Zac Brown, and Noah Cyrus. And of course, Lil Nas X. We certainly can’t forget Diplo’s Remix of the extremely popular song, ‘Old Town Road’. 

What do you think of Diplo’s dive into the county music scene? Is this a fad or are these two worlds colliding and here to stay?

Calvin Harris and Defected Records Tease a Release With 1990s Throwback

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 12:14

Great news regarding a tasty Calvin Harris release under Defected Records arrived today. Both Defected Records and the Scottish DJ/producer Calvin Harris shared a curious anecdote from 1999.

With the curious share of a handwritten document of Defected’s founder, Simon Dunmore fans are getting hyped for this new Calvin Harris track. On that document, you can see how the founder of the successful label encourages the world’s highest-paid DJs for six consecutive years to keep submitting new demos that could fit the labels preferences.

Calvin Harris

Much water has flowed under the bridge since then, but in the next couple of weeks, the world will receive a very expected track. After many worldwide hits by Calvin Harris and many powerful releases by Defected, the moment arrived. It took more than 20 years to arrive, but now, fans are very excited about it.

Calvin Harris Defected Records

The moral of the story is that it is never too late to do something that you want to do. Everything arrives with time, effort and hard work (and their consequences). Both long-runners of the music industry shared inspirational positive messages about this curious remembrance

Calvin Harris and Simon Dunmore Go Back to 1999’s Memory

21 years ago, he called me during an episode of Neighbours to tell me he liked my tunes and to keep at it. Now I’ve got a record out on his label in a couple of weeks

Calvin Harris

On the other side of the story, Defected’s founder classified this throwback as a class act from Calvin Harris.

In an industry when most people quickly forget, the fact that this is still important to Calvin shows perfectly that he is a class act. And also that first impression are lasting impressions.

Simon Dunmore

Earlier last month, Calvin Harris delivered The Ultimate Groove on Love Regenerator, with a wonderful set for Defected Virtual Festival. EDM fans, especially house music lovers are very excited about this release that will arrive very soon.

Twenty years ago the world was very different from how we know it now. Musically, there were two soups: sweetened pop and hard rock, without half measures and with a few alternatives in the mainstream.

Twenty years have passed since Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett revolutionized music with the introduction of Gorillaz, a virtual band. Since then they have put one hit after another on the musical stage. Now the band celebrates this moment with the publication of a 120-page book called ‘Almanac’.

“The artwork, the music, and the mythos all add up to what is destined to be one of our most buzzed about releases in history, and when fans see just what we have planned, I know everyone will agree it was well worth the wait.”

Gorillaz ‘ Almanac ‘Lookbook content and release date

The full-color hardback lookbook will include a wide array of special artwork, comic strips, games, puzzles, and more featuring Noodle, Murdoc Niccals, 2D, and Russel Hobbs’ cartoon outfit. The book also includes special guest appearances and contributors throughout his career.

Gorillaz Almanac Lookbook

Gorillaz co-founder Jamie Hewlett described the band’s visual evolution over the years to Rolling Stone.

“Twenty years of drawing the same characters you can’t avoid change. I think I tried to draw more realism into them around the 4th album but now I find myself looking back at the original style, which reminds me of 1970’s Hannah Barbera cartoons which I grew up on. Ultimately I would love to create an animation style as good as Chuck Jones’s style during the late ’70s. Also, I can afford to buy better pens now.”

The Gorillaz ‘almanac’ Lookbook will be released on October 16 via z2 comics. It will be available in three different versions: Gorillaz Almanac Standard, Gorillaz Almanac Deluxe and Gorillaz Almanac Super Deluxe, with a price that will range between $24 and $199.

Twenty years in the making, we’re excited to team up with @Gorillaz for the first ever Gorillaz ALMANAC! Pre-order your copy now at https://t.co/2noKyYijnA ???? pic.twitter.com/SHDHO4oS3L

Galantis Only a Fool Galantis & Ship Wrek with Pink Sweat$ – Only A Fool

2020 continues being a huge year for Galantis. After the release of his latest album Church, the Swedish duo is back with new music, as they continue moving on in what has already been a successful year. 2020 has been a year filled with great singles, and now a new one joins the family! Titled ‘Only A Fool’, Galantis’ comes together with one of the fastest rising duos in the industry, Ship Wrek, to deliver a track that will make everyone dance!

With a breathtaking set of vocals delivered by American singer/songwriter Pink Sweat$, the track is seriously something else. Galantis brings is characteristic hype/dance-infusing style. Short chords which escalate into a full-fledged, amazing melodic drop. For real, these guys handle chords and melodies on a way few artists inside the industry can.

However, this song, as expressed before is a collaboration. Certainly, Ship Wrek’s been having a meteoric rise. After collaborating with Valentin Khan for his track ‘Obsession’, the duo unveils their mellower, yet housey side. Partnering up with Galantis, they show they plan to go nowhere but up inside this industry!

Galantis continues to smash hit after hit. They take their signature style and mix it all over the place. Bringing new artists and fusing their styles to create something amazing becomes a daily thing. Big names, small names. New guys, old guys. The result is always the same. A new Galantis track that takes over the radio and charts. I can’t wait to experience all of this new music live once the quarantine’s over. Galantis exudes an amazing energy on stage. And now, they have a whole new arsenal to release onto the world. Watch out, Galantis is coming in. And they’re coming in strong!

Nuclear Bass Face NGHTMRE & Subtronics – Nuclear Bass Face (feat. Boogie T)

Bass incoming! A new collaboration, delivered by three dubstep heavyweights is finally here! Today, NGHTMRE, Subtronics, and Boogie T have all joined forces to bring out a new lit collab! Titled ‘Nuclear Bass Face’ this new track is at explosive as it sounds! NBS was released through Ultra Records.

Just by looking at that cover, you know something hard is coming. Certified riddim don Subtronics lashes out a hard hitting drop after teaming up with NGHTMRE to throw bass right in your face. As if that wasn’t good enough, Boogie T joins the fun to deliver his signature reggae melodies as a bridge between drops. The result? A V-I-B-E. You’ll bopping your head to the nice reggae melody and lyrics. Then, after the build up lifts your energy, you’ll be dropped straight into a hard-banging pure riddim drop. This collaboration is simply amazing, and, after listening to it I’d say it is shaping up to become one of the best bass collabs in 2020!

2020 has definitely been a weird year. However, we’ve had a fair share of amazing tracks. Every genre has been able to gather at least a couple of great tracks during the quarantine. Yet, bass music is blessed with this new massive collab. We can wait to hear more from these 3 DJs. Subtronics and Boogie T have worked before, obtaining amazing results every single time. This time, NGHMTRE is added to the mix for an even greater dose of bass. NBF will certainly leave the riddim community begging for more, and hopefully, our prayers will be heard.

Now, we can just hope for the best so that we can listen to this huge track live soon. Stay home so that we can headbang and rage again soon!

BRONSON Unveils Gripping ‘HEART ATTACK’ Music Video

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 09:58
Bronson Heart Attack

ODESZA and Golden Features‘ project, BRONSON, unveiled the music video for their track, ‘HEART ATTACK‘ featuring lau.ra. The cinematic animation is directed by award-winning Hungarian filmmaker Balázs Simon and produced by London-based company Blinkink. Simon spoke out on the making of the video considering how the lock-down made it difficult to assemble a large team.

“As we couldn’t assemble a big team together due to lockdown, we needed a less conventional way of doing this, where all departments had to work separately – without really seeing the whole picture! We had to rely on our imaginations. We went out to the empty streets of Budapest and shot camera moves without any subject, then we rehearsed movements in a park, did some motion capture, and from there we took the stay-at-home ordinances to heart – locking ourselves in for a couple of weeks and assembling all the collected data into this video. It was an intensive experience with an amazing team of talented friends, and it made our days much more bearable!”

Watching the video, it presents a tale of fighting tooth and nail to get to a certain point of light on the horizon. This is shown through the desolate and dark landscape presented which the character emerges out of. From that point on, she continues to fight the winds pushing her back, unwavering due to the power of will pushing forward. Evidently having the golden cloak and garments pushed away, she emanates the light within her, inspiring the people around to emerge and embrace the light too.

Gian Galang’s (@galang43) artwork was the perfect visual compliment to the sound of BRONSON. His work captures the same energy we sought to express with this record. Take a look behind the scenes at his process, cant wait for you to see what else he put together. pic.twitter.com/vgN1rdO85S

— BRONSON (@wearebronson) May 18, 2020

When it comes down to aesthetic, BRONSON is presenting a focus around black and white. Distinctly, the tints of gold become much more appealing within the dichotomy bringing life into the mixture.

To leave a reminder, the self-titled album by BRONSON is set for release on July 17th, with two tracks already out. We’re heavily looking forward for what’s to come, knowing the three are likely concocting some surprises along the way. In addition, they’re releasing it via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective imprint and Ninja Tune.

Finally, watch the video for ‘HEART ATTACK’ featuring lau.ra by ODESZA and Golden Features’ project, ‘BRONSON,’ below!

Tchami Releases Astounding 2 Track EP

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 09:51
Tchami Born Again Tchami – Born Again/ Buenos Aires

Tchami is back at it again. The French DJ released today a new EP containing 2 tracks which will be part of his new album Year Zero. Released on his label Confession, the EP contains his latest two tracks, ‘Ghosts’ and ‘Proud’. Tchami’s new tracks inside this EP are titled ‘Buenos Aires’ and ‘Born Again’

“Buenos Aires” is one of the 2 tracks I will drop this Friday. Pre-save now ???????? https://t.co/C8rBYuPWLR #YearZero2020 pic.twitter.com/mwi7VDFnum

After posting the announcement on Twitter, Tchami comes back to bless the realm of house with two huge new tracks. The first one, ‘Born Again’ is a hard banging house hit. After a drum dominated intro, you’re quickly swooped into a melody and drop that reminds you of some of Tchami’s old track and remixes. An amazing track that will surely get you dancing all over the place, ‘Born Again’ is what every day one Tchami fan wants to hear on his latest album.

Moving on two ‘Buenos Aires’. If you’ve listened to Lady Gaga’s latest album, Chromatica, then you’ll catch Tchami style and his plan for Gaga’s album as soon as you listen to this track. Filled with disco vibes, distorted vocals and on top of it, a very sensual bassline, Buenos Aires sounds a bit more like the new Tchami. That being side, the new Tchami is as good as the old Tchami. Evolving, yet still keeping what makes him good. What makes him, a certified house DON.

Tchami

Year Zero is coming. We don’t know when. However, we’re ready for it. Tchami is crushing 2020, as an artist on its maximum expression. Collaborating, producing, mixing, he does it all. We can’t wait to listen to his new album, but, while we wait for it, let’s go enjoy this awesome EP!
