Seismic Dance Event Responds After Claims of “Locked Out” Attendees

38 min 59 sec ago

Seismic Dance Event has responded to alleged claims that the music festival was oversold and fans were locked out during the headliner.

On night one, the music festival’s social media exploded with comments and concerns from fans, including some who said they were forced to miss headliner Testpilot after being locked outside.

Seismic has a much different account, however, about how the night went down.

Seismic Dance Event producers Andrew Parsons and Kelly Gray address concerns in an emailed statement to Your EDM:

While perception was that the event was oversold the reality was that we were following safety procedures set for by the fire marshal and our own internal public safety team. After the majority of guests made their way into the venue in an orderly fashion, in response to congestion within the venue, the on-site Fire Marshals and public safety personnel temporarily held doors, then counting guests into the venue in an organized manner to ensure the safety and comfort of those inside.

After approximately 45 minutes, shortly after Testpilot took the stage, this entry operation concluded, with all guests moving freely about the venue enjoying the remaining programming. While it is unfortunate some experienced a delay in entry, including those who used the exited the venue to use restrooms, no paying guests were denied the opportunity to enjoy the majority of the incredible Testpilot set.

Night two of Seismic Music Event reportedly went off without a hitch, as logistical challenges from night one were addressed prior to gates.

1 hour 56 min ago

It’s almost that time of year again — GRiZMAS is just around the corner!

In addition, the producer’s annual 12 Days of GRiZMAS event leads up to a 2-night throwdown at Detroit’s historic Masonic Temple.

Day 1: The GRiZMAS Workshop Grand Opening
Day 2: Killer Crafts & Cocktails
Day 3: Serve Our Community Day
Day 4: Mystery Party
Day 5: GRiZMAS Dodgeball Tournament

Biden Supports Marijana Decriminalization, Not Legalization

2 hours 11 min ago

Joe Biden has come out as the only leading 2020 Democrat to oppose federal legalization of marijuana.

Before fully legalizing, the former Vice President is calling for more research to determine whether marijuana is “a gateway drug” or not.

Back in 2010, Biden firmly stated, “I still believe it’s a gateway drug,” and “legalization is a mistake.”

When recently asked if his stance had changed since then, Biden said, “No, it hasn’t changed. The truth of the matter is, there has not been nearly enough evidence acquired as to whether or not it’s a gateway drug.”

He does, however, support decriminalization of the drug. Biden said those jailed for marijuana should be released and criminal records expunged of related charges.

Changing marijuana from a Schedule I drug to a Schedule III would make it easier to research, which Biden also supports.

Watch below.

Porter Robinson’s Support Of Madeon’s “Good Faith” Is The Definition Of Wholesome

3 hours 35 min ago

Madeon’s album Good Faith is one of the best things to happen in 2019, and Porter Robinson agrees with me. The two friends have shared a lot together over the years, including a love of each other’s music. So when Madeon released his sophomore album last Friday, of course Porter had to stan his best friend.

Porter started with a pretty standard tweet, promo’ing the album and calling it incredible.

my good friend Madeon’s album “Good Faith” which he’s been developing for years and years is finally out and it’s just incredible

just listen to it it’s so good https://t.co/qaiiOMMH9m

— porter robinson (@porterrobinson) November 15, 2019

From there, though, he just dives headfirst into praising the album and his reactions are the definition of wholesome.

“good faith” is breathtaking. top 5 all time album for me. it’s the sound of an artist achieving what he wanted to achieve for his entire life

— porter robinson (@porterrobinson) November 15, 2019

i heard every song in this album many times in various states of completion, but i saved my first true start-to-finish playthrough for today. it really left me stunned

— porter robinson (@porterrobinson) November 15, 2019

CAN YOU SHOWWWWWW ME A MIRACLEEEEE

what the fuck man it’s too good

— porter robinson (@porterrobinson) November 15, 2019

HEAVY WITH HOPING & BOREALIS TOO

ridiculous

— porter robinson (@porterrobinson) November 15, 2019

Dabin Responds To Fans After Backlash Over Guitar Smashing

5 hours 1 min ago

Dabin has been smashing guitars on Illenium‘s Ascend Tour, rockstar style — but after receiving some backlash from fans about it, he’s hoping to clear the air.

An epic slow motion video from tour surfaced on Reddit over the weekend (see below), which captures that moment when Dabin smashes a guitar on stage. Some fans called him out on the thread, with comments like, “I don’t understand why they have to break a guitar,” and “just give it to a fan.”

Dabin has since responded, explaining it’s not his show and he wants to follow through with Illenium’s vision. He hopes the guitar smashing makes for an even more memorable concert experience.

He goes on to explain the smashed guitars, like the one in the video, are not performance guitars. They also plan on doing a guitar giveaway at the end of the tour. In addition, Dabin is always looking for ways to give back.

Read his full statement:

Just woke up to a ton of messages because of this. Let me clarify a few things. I’m not smashing the guitars that I use to perform with. We are given these guitars at every show for the sole purpose of smashing via either people donating them to be smashed, or a runner going out and finding one. It’s also not my show. I’m just a part in Nicks performance and if his performance includes me smashing a guitar, I will oblige because it’s what he wants in his show. If you’ve ever seen my own show, you know I’m not out here smashing my guitars. The stages where we smash guitars are often far enough from the crowd that it wouldn’t pose a threat to any of the concert goers but if anyone feels that they’ve ever felt endangered by this please message me and I will bring up these concerns with his team. Lastly, I did my fair share of donating to local arts programs before I left Canada because I believe in giving back to the environment that raised and shaped me. I try to give back as much as I can but don’t feel the need to boast about it on social media but felt I’d bring it up here since people think I’m being wasteful and disrespectful. Also planned on doing a guitar giveaway at the end of this tour. So I’m sorry if this offended anyone, but again this isn’t my show. Just trying to put on a memorable show for people and hope anyone who’s been to one of our shows had a fun time!

Autograf Unveil First Single, “Ain’t Deep Enough,” Off Forthcoming Debut Album

5 hours 30 min ago

It’s a big day for trio Autograf, as they just released a new single with Jared Lee called “Ain’t Deep Enough.” But this isn’t just any single, no — it’s the first single from their forthcoming debut album.

“We’re so excited to finally share our debut album,” says the group. “A lot of good and bad things have happened to us in the past couple years. And the album tells this story, but it also tells your story. We share our stories through music, but how you experience and interpret it will be your story.”

They continue, “We’ve always thought of life like a deck of cards holding all the possibilities of your life. So when you look at the art and listen to the music, tell us how does it make you feel when you draw the 2 of cups in a tarot deck? That’s what ‘Ain’t Deep Enough’ means to us but it will mean something else to you. That’s the beauty of life. We have to play the hand we’re dealt in life, but anything is still possible depending on the reading or interpretation.”

“Ain’t Deep Enough” immediately sets the tone for the album with an uplifting melody and warm chords. The bouncy rhythm is characteristic of the trio, but this one hits with a sense of renewed vitality, a sense of bigger and better things to come.

Listen below and stay tuned for more news on the album coming out next year!

Seismic Dance Event Allegedly Locks Out Attendees Using The Bathroom After Drastically Over-Selling Festival

Sun, 11/17/2019 - 18:50

Seismic Dance Event experienced a logistical nightmare last night, causing many fans to miss out on seeing headlining act Testpilot (aka deadmau5).

It seems the music festival in Austin, Texas oversold tickets by a long shot, resulting in devastatingly long lines for re-entry. According to the many attendees who got locked out, it was almost impossible to get back inside after using the restrooms, which were located outside the venue.

Once the event hit capacity (or well over it), people were reportedly “screaming and fighting and demanding refunds.” The negative feedback on Facebook was overwhelming to say the least.

The screenshots below detail all the festival horrors that came with night one of Seismic 2019. The event continues tonight, so fans can only hope these issues have been sorted out by organizers.

Read just some of the complaints and comments from festival goers below.

We’re hoping for a better night two!

10 Years Later, A-Trak Reveals How He Made His Iconic “Heads Will Roll” Remix

Sun, 11/17/2019 - 17:12

Ten years after A-Trak‘s iconic remix of “Heads Will Roll” came out, the producer reveals how the remix came to be. Not only the moment he knew he had to make a remix, but how he actually made it!

Below, A-Trak details when he came to be a fan of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. He saw them performing at Coachella and immediately requested to remix their massive hit song “Heads Will Roll.” Little did A-Trak know at the time how impactful his own remix would be.



In the series of tweets below, the producer gives a brief history on his “Heads Will Roll” remix a decade after its release. As a bonus, he opens his project file and breaks down the making of the remix.

Watch below and enjoy the remix again!

R3hab Teams Up with ZAYN and Jungleboi for Incredible New Single “Flames”

Sun, 11/17/2019 - 11:58

There are certain songs that when you hear them the first time, they just affect you. You know you listened to something special and you say to yourself, I’m definitely going to hear that song a lot. I feel like that’s the case for R3hab’s latest single “Flames” where he teams up with ZAYN (yep, that’s Zayn Malik from One Direction) and UK-based producer Jungleboi, to deliver a tour de force of a song that’s both powerful and emotional.

“Flames” sees R3hab venture even further into mainstream territory, but this isn’t a pop song, it’s sort of a blues-y song with some electronic elements, notably the incredible piano work by R3hab on this track. There’s not a drop or riff that carries the song, instead, what really stands out is ZAYN’s amazing vocal work. ZAYN shows off incredible power and range in his voice affecting a wide range of emotions. The song is a warning to a prospective love interest that it’s best she move on, because he’ll only bring her down. However, he feels trapped, telling her it’s best to just let it go.

Here’s what R3hab had to say about how “Flames” came together.

“I was working on the ‘Flames’ song for quite some time together with Jungleboi when we got the call from ZAYN. The result is absolutely epic. I couldn’t be more proud of the result and look forward to sharing this amazing tune with the world.”

Check out R3hab’s latest track “Flames” featuring ZAYN and Jungleboi out now on CYB3RPVNK. R3hab continues on his North American co-headlining tour with Cash Cash, dates below.

November 16 – Showbox SoDo – Seattle, WA
November 22 – Rebel – Toronto, ON
November 23 – The Bomb Factory – Dallas, TX
November 29 – Great Hall-Avant Garder – Brooklyn, NY
November 30 – Echostage – Washington, DC
January 18 – Aragon Ballroom – Chicago, IL

R3hab (Solo)
December 24 – Marquee – New York, NY

[Lyrics]
You better run from me
You better hit the road
You better up and leave
Don’t get too close

Cause I’m a Rolling Stone
And I keep rolling on
You better run from me
Before I take your soul

If I know, let me go
Don’t you follow me, let me go
I will let you down, let me go
Even if your heart can’t take it, light me up in flames
Light me up

Light me up
Light me up
Light me up
Light me up in flames

You better run from me
You better say goodbye
And even if I’ll bleed
Don’t waste your time
Cause I’m a broken home
You’re better off alone
You better run from me
Before I take your soul

If I know, let me go
Don’t you follow me, let me go
I will let you down, let me go
Even if your heart can’t take it, light me up in flames
Light me up

Light me up
Light me up
Light me up
Light me up in flames

NGHTMRE Drops New Hip Hop Collab With Gunna, “CASH COW”

Sat, 11/16/2019 - 18:37

NGHTMRE is back with his latest hip hop collaboration, this time teaming up with rapper, singer, and songwriter Gunna on “CASH COW.”

“CASH COW” is a smooth and silky tune that leans on Gunna’s autotuned vocals, backed by NGHTMRE’s elegantly simple production. The beat never overpowers the vocals, instead effectively providing a platform for Gunna to do what he does best.

This isn’t the peak hour banger that will have fans headbanging and throwing their arms up in the air, but the laidback demeanor of the tune will make it perfect for giving fans a breather during an electrifying set.

Check out “CASH COW” from NGHTMRE and Gunna below!

Steve Aoki Reveals the Celebs that Left Him Starstruck

Sat, 11/16/2019 - 18:36

At this point in his career, Steve Aoki has brushed shoulders with pretty much every celebrity under the sun. Not to mention his collaborators, which range from Backstreet Boys to BTS, Lil Yachty and Migos to Gucci Mane and T-Pain, and many, many more.

However, there have been a couple of times when even Aoki was starstruck. He recalled to AOL Lifestyle the two major celebrities that he’ll never forget meeting: actor George Clooney and actress Gabrielle Union.

“I met George Clooney on a flight. That was pretty cool,” Aoki said. “I didn’t ask Clooney for a photo — that was a bit too intimidating!”

“Gabrielle Union… She walked by me and was like, ‘Hey, I’m a big fan of yours,'” he added. “That was, like, so cool.”

We’re sure Aoki has left plenty of other celebrities feeling the same type of way.

Madeon Talks Inspiration Behind New Album ‘Good Faith’

Sat, 11/16/2019 - 18:27

Now that Madeon‘s new album Good Faith is finally here, he’s opening up about how the project came to be.

In a new interview Complex, the producer discusses his sophomore album, including underlying personal meanings and inspirations. Madeon compares his music to diary entries — and Good Faith is one for the books.

The burst of inspiration behind Good Faith came to Madeon when he was living in New York. He hadn’t slept for a few days when the concept, sounds and visuals all came rushing to him. That spontaneous urge was the start of the Good Faith era.

Good Faith vs Adventure:

With Adventure, I was living with my parents, and I was protecting myself, and I liked getting so much shelter from the music industry, and my career, and for it to feel kind of like a distant dream.

Whereas with this album, I wanted it to reflect reality in my life, and so I wanted to have more experiences. I started traveling the world with some friends and some other creative people. I ended up moving to Los Angeles in the end.

Good Faith called for a major change:

I decided I wanted to be spontaneous and make sure that my life was different enough from Adventure that I wouldn’t repeat myself. So I just decided to settle there. There wasn’t any logic behind it, except that I was trying to, I guess, roll the dice, and have a different life.

Facebook App ‘AUX’ Lets Users Vote On What Plays Next

Sat, 11/16/2019 - 18:24

Facebook is launching a new app known as AUX, which gives users the chance to take over and pass the figurative AUX cord.

As Facebook looks to tap into the music streaming game, this particular app describes itself as a “DJ for your school.” Users add songs to a playlist through the app and selections are voted up and down using “claps,” which ultimately determine which track plays next.

Facebook’s experimental NPE team describes the app like so:

The app is aimed at school-aged kids and teens who join a party in the app every day at 9 PM. They then choose the songs they want to play and compete for the ‘AUX’ to get theirs played first. At the end of the night, a winner is chosen based on how many claps are received.

We’re not going to lie, we’d rather just pick our own music to listen to.

The app is currently in beta and only available in Canada for the time being.

HUNTER Returns From Brief Hiatus With Dark Techno Banger, “I Don’t Forget”

Sat, 11/16/2019 - 14:01

The dance music world hasn’t heard the name HUNTER in quite some time — so long in fact that the Canadian producer’s Spotify is essentially bereft of content. That is, until yesterday when he returned with the dark and foreboding techno banger, “I Don’t Forget” featuring Roshin.

“I Don’t Forget” begins with a dark, deep house rhythm, while ominous synths punctuate the beat alongside an echoing voice. Hunter then draws it all in with a gritty synth line, masterfully using his sonic enchantments to create a lasting hypnotic effect.

This is the first single off his upcoming EP. Check it out below, out now via Thrive Music/No Neon.

Ekali Cancels Show After Security Guards Allegedly Assault and Threaten Him & His Team

Sat, 11/16/2019 - 13:06

Ekali was scheduled to perform at Club Europe in St. Louis last night, but ultimately ended up having to cancel the show due to the allegedly unprofessional and threatening actions of the venue staff and security.

The Canadian producer chronicled the events of the night on Twitter, beginning, “I came in quite sick, was shoved around behind the booth, staff tried to jump my tour manager. I don’t play when I don’t feel like me and my team are safe. After this video he threatened to shoot me in the face. Fuck this shit.”

St. Louis, I’m sorry I won’t be performing tonight. I came in quite sick, was shoved around behind the booth, staff tried to jump my tour manager. I don’t play when I don’t feel like me and my team are safe. After this video he threatened to shoot me in the face. Fuck this shit pic.twitter.com/VV8r0hHdqs

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

That’s club staff by the way, Club Europe in St Louis

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

He also attempted to open the door and assault us once we were in the car. Im sorry to those I disappointed, I’ll be back soon in a venue not ran by thugs

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

Eventually, apparently one of the security guards, going by @MRGoliath on Twitter, responded to Ekali and offered an alternative perspective to the story, but deleted the below tweet.

I didn’t say a single word in the DJ booth. I can barely speak cause I’m sick and swollen. I saw violence, I said I’m leaving. I’m in the parking lot leaving. we get rushed by 6 people. Im not hard, I’m a Canadian kid getting his job done. Not here to get my “brains blown out” https://t.co/OUNycyUBu4

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

Still, many of his tweets remain, including the one below, to which he challenges Ekali to prove “we said he gon get shot in the face.”

I have 4 neutral witnesses, since you stole my property and shut it off right before it was said

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

In fact I was so shocked you said it I asked you if that’s what you said, and you said yeah we’re gonna blow your brains out. Then you said the same to my guests when they went to get their Uber.

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

To clarify I’m talking about the venue. The promoters were very helpful. But this place is 10/10 unsafe. We had every single security guard rush us. Off to bed happy no one got hurt

— Ekali ???? (@EkaliMusic) November 16, 2019

Ekali promised to make it back to the city to play eventually, saying, “I’m sorry to those I disappointed, I’ll be back soon in a venue not ran by thugs.”
