Be prepared to pay top dollar if you want to own Samsung‘s revolutionary foldable smartphone. According to a new report, the device could cost as much as $1,770 — although the source also says Samsung hasn’t yet determined the exact price point.
Yonhap News Agency originally reported that the smartphone, nicknamed “Galaxy F,” could cost up to $1,770. That’s even more than Apple’s most expensive iPhone X model with 500 GB of space. But hey, it bends so it must be worth it, right?
The forthcoming smartphone with “Infinity Flex” display utilizes an advanced polymer to make it flexible and durable. So much so, it can apparently be bent over 200,000 times and still maintain quality performance and visual aspects.
The “Galaxy F” acts as a traditional smartphone with a 4-inch screen or expands into a 7.3-inch tablet, which promotes multitasking. According to the Samsung, “the foldable phone is a completely new concept in terms of design and user experience.”

Mariah Carey has been holding out on us. Not only does her new album Caution contain a track with Skrillex, the bonus edition has another “amazing collaboration” with the producer.
There’s just one problem — it’s an exclusive Japanese release. The special bonus track, “Runaway” is only available on the Japanese edition of Mariah’s album Caution. So, if you want to hear it, you’re going to have to find a workaround, move, or make friends with someone over in Japan.
Mariah just shared the news via her official Twitter account, so we know it’s legit.
Someone please upload this track for the rest of the world to hear!Mariah Carey x Skrillex

Who is Deathpact? No one seems to know. The producer’s identity has yet to be revealed and the SoundCloud profile hails from Unknown, United States. What we do know is that he or she or they just unleashed a massive new reprise of ODESZA‘s “Loyal” that you need to hear now.
Where ODESZA offers up one of their boldest musical atmospheres yet, Deathpact only builds upon it. Trading out a majority of the deep horns for equally deep arps and a healthy serving of distortion makes for an unusual twist on this crowd pleaser. The mysterious producer drives the trap banger into a midtempo blaster, hardening up the track in the process.
“Filthy.” “Aggressive.” “Holy Fuck.”
Those are just some of the ways fans are expressing what’s heard below.

The role of a tastemaker in music has diminished somewhat in an era of such easily accessible music. Playlists and reposts dictate what ends up getting popular much of the time, but select artists still hold a curator’s power, especially when those artists are well respected or have a cult following.
Case in point: Porter Robinson.
The young producer just shared a small list of releases that he loves from 2018, including Kero Kero Bonito album Time ‘n’ Place, the new G Jones album The Ineffable Truth, and the Swardy EP Here On My Own.
releases from 2018 that i love:

Time ‘n’ Place is an… interesting album, with minimal flourishes and a lot of eccentricities. We’ve already gushed about how much we love G Jones’ album here. And we’ve done the same for Swardy’s EP, as well.
You can listen to all of them on your own below!

Rising producer Luis da Silva has unleashed a new body of work that’s near and dear to his heart. The 4-track Night Etiquette EP is not only an expression of his own artistry, it’s a tribute to some of his most favorite musicians and inspirations.
The brand new, powerful EP features four remixes of original tracks by Odd Mob, Loge21, Chace and Anna Lunoe. He blends a fierce mix of glitchy, in-your-face rhythms and sensual dance atmospheres, making for an unpredictable and exciting listen. Plus, each track packs an extra heavy, constant kick that will hit you right where it counts.
Silva describes this Confession-esque release as a “reflection of my very own vision of house music.” One by one, Silva spins each production into something he can call his own.
The Night Etiquette EP is already supported by some of the biggest artists in the game. Be the next to experience his amazing work right here and link up below.Luis da Silva – Night Etiquette EP

One of the most iconic voices of our time is looking to tap into the future bass market. Of course, we’re talking about T-Pain.
In a recent tweet, the hip hop star calls on the electronic music community, “Man. I need some future bass on this new album. Who do I need to holler at?” Naturally, nearly every future bass producer under the sun — even those who just dabble — are hollering back at T-Pain for a potential collab.
While some are raising their hands, other Twitter users are nominating the producers they feel would be a best fit for a track (or possibly more) with T-Pain – personally, we nominate Lido. Shaun Frank, TroyBoi, Moksi, Quix, SMLE and more are all thrown into the mix.
“Let me Buy U a drank and we can talk about it,” Whethan says for the win.
T-Pain is known for his distinct autotune sound, although he sounds great without it. He’s surely a talent that can take his production any which way and adapt accordingly — next stop, future bass. We can’t wait to hear where this goes.T-Pain Needs A Future Bass Producer

Nicky Romero is back with a brand new track, “Bittersweet,” and this progressive house gem will have his old school fans jumping for joy. The Dutch mega-producer has been putting out a steady string of releases this year, each showcasing a slightly different style from the last. This time Nicky teams up with Swedish duo Trilane, Canadian musician Kokaholla and vocalist Quarterback to produce a clean and uplifting progressive track that sounds like it would be right at home on any top 40 radio station’s drivetime slot.
The song opens with a looping vocal chop playing over a light piano melody, from there Quarterback’s vocals take over. This is definitely a pop-leaning breakup song in terms of the verse. After that, an anthemic sounding synth riff plays over the vocals. From there, the snare comes in and builds into a thoroughly enjoyable progressive house drop, complete with all sorts of bright production flourishes. The second verse comes after that with some guitar synths layered over the original piano melody. After that, a dramatic vocal break leads back into the drop.
Check out Nicky Romero vs. Trilane & Kokaholla “Bittersweet ft. Quarterback” Out now on Protocol!

Spotify is taking over. (As if it hasn’t already…) The music streaming service is now active in the following 13 new markets: United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestinian Territories and Egypt.
The company just announced the massive Middle East and North Africa expansion this week. With this recent development, Spotify now reaches 78 markets across the globe and counting.
An official statement comes from Cecilia Qvist, Spotify’s global head of markets:
“I am super excited to share with you that, from today, Spotify is now available across the Middle East and North Africa. Spotify is launching in MENA with a full Arabic service, dozens of locally-curated playlists for every mood and moment, and access to a full catalog of millions of songs, for both our free and premium users. Music fans will also enjoy Spotify’s personalized music recommendations from day one, which will help them to enjoy, discover and share new music from both local and international artists simply and easily.”
Spotify is also introducing it’s Arab hub, where users can discover and access their favorite Arabic music. The platform’s Global Cultures initiative recently launched Latin and Afro hubs as well.
We can expect Spotify’s global takeover to continue to grow.

How does a man who already has everything celebrate his 40th birthday? By flying out a bunch of beautiful women to party in Jamaica.
Diplo just turned 40, which is a huge deal for anyone. But for the Florida native who’s been around the world and back again, no experience is really “new” anymore. So to celebrate his birthday, he flew out to Jamaica and invited a bunch of models and influencers to join him, including: Nicole Williams, Grace Mahary, Mélodie Monrose, Helen Gedlu, and Shanina Shaik, and the influencer DJs Chantel Jeffries and Simi and Haze Khadra, as well as another person from Kylie Jenner’s orbit, Justine Skye.
Photos of the excursion are plastered all over Instagram now, including a thirst trap picture from Diplo himself.
Jamaica also makes perfect sense for the location of the party, as the country’s history and culture have influenced so much of Diplo’s music. When asked earlier this year about his critics who view his interpretation of dance hall as “whitewashing,” he told The Guardian, “I might be too tired to answer that in a good way. I don’t…really…f–king care. What kind of music am I supposed to make? Being a white American, you have zero cultural capital, unless you’re doing Appalachian fiddle music or something. I’m just a product of my environment.”View this post on Instagram

On Thursday, November 15th at 9am, the Miami City Commission will vote at City Hall on Ultra Music Festival’s proposal to move its venue to Historic Virginia Key Beach Park (HVKBP) for March 29-31, 2019. Some residents of Virginia Key and the mayor of neighboring Key Biscayne have loudly voiced their disapproval, but another issue also stands in Ultra’s way, perhaps more significant. Rapture Festival, which has been held at HVKBP for the past two years, already has a contract on the venue for March 29 and 30, 2019.
This morning, Rapture Festival released a statement to press strongly opposing Ultra’s new proposal:
Rapture Music Festival has successfully held two editions on consecutive years 2017 and 2018 at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park (HVKBP). We are strongly opposed to Ultra Music Festival’s proposal to relocate to HVKBP as we currently have a signed contract with the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park Trust for March 29 and March 30, 2019 and we’re very much looking forward to returning to this beautiful beachside setting for our third edition with our fans.
Rapture Festival brings a lineup similar to Ultra’s Resistance stage, hosting names such as Luciano, Chris Liebing, Guy Gerber, Hernan Cattaneo and RPR Soundsystem. In further comparison to Ultra, Rapture is much, much smaller in attendance, drawing just 7,000 attendees in 2018. This could definitely be seen as a positive by the community of Virginia Key, who are worried about the environmental effect festivals have on the surroundings.
Whether the city of Miami will vote to approve Ultra’s proposal and oust Rapture to another date or location, or deny Ultra’s proposal, remains to be seen. Should things proceed as planned, we’ll know one way or the other tomorrow morning.

Dylan Emmet is a singer/songwriter with a story to tell. After finding out he had a two year old daughter he never knew about, Dylan began releasing a string of songs documenting his journey, beginning with leaving Los Angeles to become an insta-dad in New York overnight. Constance is a Canadian singer-songwriter with an electro-pop background who’s music is a homage to her late mother. With both artists combining forces, the result is an absolutely emotional song in their latest offering “Memory.”
Dylan explains: “‘Memory’ is about the inner dialogue we all go through during a breakup. We were sharing personal experiences we’ve each had during the end of a relationship. There’s these moments when it feels like the other person has immediately forgotten who you are. Often times we create this story in our head that our ex is fine and has moved on. The truth is, we really have no clue how the other person is feeling.”
This looks to be the first of a few collaborative releases by both talented artists so keep your ears peeled for more!

There were many sets to behold this past weekend at EDC Orlando, but perhaps one of the most anticipated was Illenium’s set at circuitGROUNDS, performing his new Awake 2.0 set. Such was the draw of Illenium’s set that Alison Wonderland went so far as to shift her set time earlier so that fans could see them both.
And for anyone who was watching the stream this past weekend, it was clear to see why. Between KJ Sawka on the drums, Said The Sky on keys, and the rest of his team, it’s one of the most enthralling live shows currently touring in dance music. In fact, it’s really one of the few full “bands” currently touring in the genre at all.
Only 45 minutes of Illenium’s set happened to be captured on stream, missing his new remix of Halsey, but you can hear the full set via the SoundCloud player below.
Check it out!

All seven episodes of the new series “Like & Subscribe,” executive produced and starring Dillon Francis, are now available to stream via Funny of Die. The series follows Skyy Goldwynne (Dillon Francis), Hollywood’s biggest manager, as he locks 4 of his influencer clients in a house with a camera crew.
There are an abundance of references to real-life influencers, social media stars, and content creators throughout the show. The relatability, and especially the tongue in cheek analysis of our current social media-driven world, definitely help to make this show accessible to any young viewer – even one who’s never heard of Dillon Francis.
The entire show is currently available to stream via Funny or Die – watch the first episode below.

It’s been a little over a week since Keith Urban, country music star extraordinaire, wrapped up the US leg of his latest Graffiti U World Tour. You’ll forgive us for not finding this earlier – we don’t generally pay attention to the social media of country artists – but it seems that Urban performed a rendition of Tiësto & Dzeko’s remix of “Jackie Chan” by Post Malone and Preme at his show in New York at Barclays Center on October 27. (That was a mouthful.)
It’s the sort of barbaric music chimera that we would never expect, like a bluegrass band covering Blackstreet’s “No Diggity.” Then again, there’s video evidence of it, so we don’t have to question its existence at all. It’s not terrible, it’s not the greatest thing ever, it’s just kind of… there.
Check out the video below, courtesy of Barclays Center.

Despite all the rumors and red flags, Okeechobeings have been holding onto hope — but, it’s really not likely that Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival is coming back next year.
In a November 8th meeting with the Okeechobee County Board of Commissioners, the County Administrator Robbie Chartier stated point blank: “It’s pretty safe to say there won’t be a festival this year.”
As it turns out, OMF hasn’t applied for the required permit to hold a 2019 installment. Although organizers reportedly still own the land, a permit is a necessary step to lock down the event. In other words, it’s not looking good.
The 2018 music festival drew in 34,000 people, with approximately 26,000 paid admissions, according to Lake Okeechobee News. Months after the fest, OMF shared an update on September 13, which stated, “Hang in there … info coming soon.”
After an epic three years, Okee would most definitely be going out on top. Still, it would be a shame, considering how much music fans love it and the kind of culture the festival has cultivated. For many, it has become more than just another music festival, but a yearly tradition.
It might finally be time to let go.

Forbes has unleashed its annual 30 Under 30 list, along with its music branch. These are the most influential 30 musicians under the age of 30 who are topping the charts and shifting culture, as judged by Boi-1da, Marshmello and Molly DeWolf Swenson.
Camila Cabello (21), Billie Elish (16), Post Malone (23), Lil Pump (18) and Juice WRLD (19) are just some of the artists on the list for 2019, which represents pop, hip hop, electronic and beyond. And, no, those aren’t their respective spots on the list — those numbers are the ages of these young talents.
Electronic producer and vocalist Yaeji (25) represents the genre with two acclaimed EPs, tour dates around the world, and even a slot at Coachella. Producer Madame Gandhi (29), who has toured with M.I.A., also makes the list.
It comes as no surprise, Marshmello’s manager Moe Shalizi (28) is also on the list.
In addition, co-founders of Monstercat, Mike Darlington (29) and Ari Paunonen (29), are given a nod for their work with the successful dance label.

For anyone who’s not already aware, The Chainsmokers are actually pretty active on Reddit, often popping into random threads or starting their own discussions on various subreddits.
As evidence of this, The Chainsmokers posted their top 5 EDM songs of all time in a thread on /r/EDM last week, and hardly anyone noticed. It was only just yesterday that a screenshot of their response hit the front page on the same subreddit that people realized.
Even the top response is questioning whether it’s really them or not… Spoiler: it is.Comment from discussion Greatest EDM track.
For their choices, The Chainsmokers select some real serious hits:
Each of these songs left such a powerful lasting impact on the dance music world; you can probably think of at least one time you heard one of these songs and had a powerful experience, if not the first time you heard them.
People give The Chainsmokers a lot of flack for putting out a lot of music that would fall under pop these days, but at the end of the day, they’re still just as in love with EDM as they were when they first started.

Calvin Harris just checked in with fans through an impromptu Twitter Q&A session.
There’s something to be learned here about his relationship with EDM, which he says he’s leaving behind. Plus, his thoughts on live performance and his background in music.
The producer most recently revisited his vocalist talents for Benny Blanco‘s “I Found You.” Harris is in this current rhythm with a steady flow of collaborative singles, with Normani, Sam Smith, Dua Lipa, and more. These days, he’s more likely to be seen climbing the charts than rocking a main stage.
The next four questions offer some insight as to where Calvin Harris is at, where he’s heading, and where he’s certainly not heading. Read up.
Will he be going back to EDM at some point? No.
EDM has been sad, slow songs for years now. Doesn’t have anything in common with the music I love to make. 2010-2014 edm was more house influenced to me. Anyway now I’m out the bubble and making big records with amazing singers that sound like house music to me… https://t.co/D3UQc8vWFx
— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) November 12, 2018
Will he do festivals again? Yes.
Yeah absolutely, one day, I was just craving studio time…I had some things I really needed to do (funk wav for example) https://t.co/AdRuZZ4Ufl
— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) November 12, 2018
Would he go back to live music performances? No way.
No way I’m 34 now
Yes basically was trying to be like LCD and Mylo ended up worse than both but I improved with time https://t.co/GZRT12mjkQ
— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) November 12, 2018
Music theory? Not for him.
I learned from listening to a lot of it. Music theory always feels (to me) like trying to explain something magical that often happened by accident after the fact and takes the soul away from it. I’m also a bit stupid so it’s probably a bit of that too https://t.co/jau37ANAvI

RL Grime has teamed up with another trap sensation, Graves, to deliver on a brand new, standout collaboration. The two already worked together on his successful sophomore album NOVA and it came as no surprise when Graves joined on to support the NOVA tour. Now, we get to hear the amazement of “Never Let Go.”
The unreleased track was unleashed at RL Grime’s show in Melbourne over the weekend and it served as a true grand finale. Both artists, known for their theatrical fusion of trap and future bass, blend perfectly together for an otherworldly result. Naturally, the crowd went off for this stunning new collaboration.
While this might not be the best audio quality, it definitely gets the point across. RL Grime and Graves have struck gold with their forthcoming production. Let’s just hope for an official release sooner than later.
