Spotify Responds To Apple’s Response Over Anti-Trust Complaint In The EU

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 18:41

Last week, Spotify announced that it had filed an antitrust complaint against Apple with the European Union. On Friday, Apple responded, addressing many but not all of Spotify’s claims about its service and how it charges vendors in its App Store.

Today, Spotify has responded to Apple’s response, calling the company “monopolist” and alleging that their response on Friday was “entirely in line with our expectations.”

In a response to Apple’s response, late Friday morning a Spotify rep said: “Every monopolist will suggest they have done nothing wrong and will argue that they have the best interests of competitors and consumers at heart. In that way, Apple’s response to our complaint before the European Commission is not new and is entirely in line with our expectations.

“We filed our complaint because Apple’s actions hurt competition and consumers, and are in clear violation of the law. This is evident in Apple’s belief that Spotify’s users on iOS are Apple customers and not Spotify customers, which goes to the very heart of the issue with Apple. We respect the process the European Commission must now undertake to conduct its review.”

Details of the forthcoming legal battle in the EU will continue to emerge, as a war of words is likely to go on between the two companies.

Skrillex’s Iconic Album ‘Recess’ Just Turned 5 [LISTEN AGAIN]

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 15:35

Skrillex‘s iconic, full-length debut album Recess just turned 5 years old today. The album was recorded between 2013 and 2014 and dropped on the world March 18, 2014.

Half a decade later, the 11-track masterpiece plays out just as well, proving yet again that Skrillex has always been far ahead of his time. These songs haven’t staled a bit and still resonate with us now more than ever.

With Recess, the producer demonstrated his diversity in the EDM realm. From the album’s in-your-face opening track “All Is Fair in Love and Brostep,” to the always catchy “Dirty Vibe,” into the softer notes of “Ease My Mind” — and everything in between — Skrillex nailed it front to back with this release.

As we anxiously await a new era for Skrillex, it’s nice to reflect on this release. No word on when he’ll bless us with his next body of work, but we’ll be ready.

Listen to Recess all over again (and again) right here!

Skrillex – Recess

REPORT: MySpace Lost 50 Million Songs Uploaded From 2003 – 2015

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 14:10

Remember MySpace? The era of the “Top 8” and your BFF, “Tom.” Many of us deleted our profiles long ago, when we ditched the social media platform for a shiny, new Facebook. However, some have been using MySpace all along — and their music catalogs are in serious trouble. Or worse, gone forever.

As Redditors have pointed out, MySpace has permanently lost user files — a ton of them — over the years. One MySpace user brought the huge issue to light with the following statement:

About a year ago, all music on MySpace from 2015 and older stopped working. At first MySpace said they were working on the issue, but they eventually admitted they lost all the data (and apparently didn’t have backups?). See this thread for more details.

Consequence of Sound has since confirmed that MySpace lost a total of 50 million songs uploaded between 2003 and 2015. Anyone hoping to keep what they’ve uploaded to the platform better back it up immediately, if anything of their profile still remains.

MySpace’s Data Privacy Officer confirmed, “Due to a server migration, files were corrupted and unable to be transferred over to our updated site. There is no way to recover the lost data.”

Yikes.

Pendulum Sub In For The Prodigy On SW4 Lineup With New Live Show & New Music

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 12:56

With the death of Keith Flint earlier this month, lineups headlined by The Prodigy have been forced to find replacements for the legendary act. While it’s impossible to truly replace them, London festival SW4 has come frightfully close with Pendulum, sporting a new “live” production show.

Announced today, Pendulum will reveal their new TRINITY live show, featuring a sort of combination live/DJ set from Rob Swire (Anscenic), Gareth McGrillen (Speed) and Paul Harding (El Hornet) performing together outside of Australia “for the first time in ten years.”

While this is great news for SW4 attendees, it gets better. According to the festival’s blog site, the group is returning in full force in 2019 and 2020 with new music and a world tour.

“You will get to hear them play brand new Pendulum music from their forthcoming EP series and album, which fans have been waiting for with baited breath, with the trio surrounded by the kind of breath-taking production you have come to expect from these pioneers of electronic music.

“Pendulum’s Trinity World Tour will be taking in performances across the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia in 2019 & 2020 with SW4 this Summer being the OFFICIAL DEBUT of this exciting new chapter in the Pendulum history books.”

Pendulum released a remix album called The Reworks in 2018, with new cuts from Skrillex, Grabbitz, Matrix & Futurebound, Pegboard Nerds, and more. However, they have not released any new, original music since their album Immersion in 2010.

Illenium Goes Dark with New Track “Pray” Coming Friday [DETAILS]

Sun, 03/17/2019 - 23:35

It’s going to be a good week — and the post below signaling Illenium‘s next release is the only sign we need. “Pray” featuring Kameron Alexander comes out this Friday.

Earlier this month Illenium teased the single via social media, so there’s already some serious hype surrounding the release. It’s one of the most dark tinged productions we’ve heard from him thus far and fans are dying to hear this side of Illenium.

“So many things happening right now, can’t wait to show you guys everything I’ve been working on,” he shared along with the teaser.

On top of all the new music, Illenium is trying to add a third Red Rocks show after his first two dates sold out within minutes. Best believe he’ll be throwing down his very best music and unreleased material during those sets.

Stay tuned for more details and check back Friday to hear “Pray” when it drops.

Karma Fields’ New Album Is The Best Hidden Gem This Week

Sun, 03/17/2019 - 17:01

The mysterious Karma Fields released his debut album NEW AGE | DARK AGE in 2016 to middling reviews, never garnering any bad press, nor any exceedingly praiseworthy reviews, either. This, despite collaborations with Cape Fear actress Juliette Lewis, Talib Kweli, and Kerli. Now, three years later, Karma Fields returns with his sophomore album BODY RUSH and it’s absolutely phenomenal.

Whereas the hits on NA/DA seemed to fall back on the talents of his collaborators, this new album does plenty on its own; and when the collaborators, who include Tove Lo and Little Boots, finally add their contributions, it only serves to accentuate the already stunning base material.

Spanning 14 tracks, BODY RUSH is a sultry, smooth, and energetic album that calls upon influences from James Blake, ZHU, and more. The result is a diverse and powerful album that plays on all the strengths of Karma Fields while continuing to push the boundaries of what that brand means. Only four tracks from the album were previously released as singles, leaving fans ten fresh and brilliant tracks to listen to for the first time.

Though it’s no concept album, each track flows seamlessly from one to the next, never missing a beat. There are also plenty of intricate, unique effects in many tracks that add a level of brilliance to the whole work. The nearly two-minute build on “An Underground System of Forgotten Machines” is the epitome of suspense and intrigue, and is easily one of the best tracks on the whole album.

One of my personal favorite tracks on the album is the acid breakbeat anthem “S > M > T (SUPER MEGA TOKYO).” Stylistically, it’s one of the more random tracks on the album. Quality wise, it’s one of the best pure electronic tracks I’ve heard all year.

There’s no doubt that, unfortunately, BODY RUSH will be overlooked by many as NEW AGE | DARK AGE was three years ago; hopefully, though, more people begin to take notice as this is definitely one of the finest albums of 2019 I’ve heard yet.

Check it out below.

The shooting was part of an overall “violent weekend” in Austin. According to Deadline, there were three other incidents that involved firearms within a 24-hour span that put five more people in the hospital.

SXSW kicked off on March 8th and ends today.

#AustinPD is working a shooting call in the 300 block of E. 6th St. One person will be transported to the hospital. Individuals have been detained, but still searching for others that may have been involved. Please avoid the area as the investigation continues.

Watch Alison Wonderland & RL Grime’s Epic B2B Set At Sundara Festival

Sat, 03/16/2019 - 17:10

RL Grime and Alison Wonderland threw down a very special b2b set at ODESZA‘s Sundara Music Festival over the weekend and it was HYPE (sorry for the caps, but just feel our excitement about this).

The two producers threw down a rowdy mix of their own music with trap bangers galore. They made room for plenty of classics, but still kept the crowd guessing. It was everything you’d want to hear in a b2b and more.

From the sounds of it, they had just as much fun on stage together as fans did in the crowd…

Getter Stands Steadfast After Fans Boo Him In Houston

Sat, 03/16/2019 - 17:04

Those hoping to headbang and listen to heavy dubstep on Getter’s current Visceral tour are likely to be disappointed — but that’s not an affront on their tastes, nor is it a cruel joke perpetrated by Getter. Rather, the tour is showcasing Getter’s album Visceral, out last year, nothing more, nothing less.

Still, Getter is true to his fans, and after hearing criticism of his tour set, he vowed to modify some things to broaden the appeal. Even then, he was still booed and heckled at Stereo Live in Houston last night on tour for playing the music he loves.

Getter has remained silent on the matter most of today, until he finally tweeted out recently. “Boo me all you want, I’m still doing this shit,” he concludes.

His Visceral tour continues tonight at Stereo Live in Dallas.

fuck it man i’m havin fun

Martin Garrix Premieres New Version Of “Mistaken” ID At Tomorrowland Winter

Sat, 03/16/2019 - 15:28

Martin Garrix took the stage at Tomorrowland Winter and debuted a new version of an ID called “Mistaken.”

Fans were surprised to hear a different drop than what he first played at ADE. According to Martin Garrix Hub, which is the one-stop source for all things Martin Garrix, some were even hoping he’d change up his original track.

Ever since Martijn premiered the song at ADE, a lot of fans were not that impressed with the drop. Martijn probaby saw the feedback and now he is planning to change the drop completely. What do you guys think? He should change the drop or not? Tweet him and let him know.

From the sounds of it, fans are split on both sides, but thankfully Martin responded:

I’m gonna do both versions ????

Listen below and let us know your favorite!

JVNA’s Cover Of “Crashing” By Illenium Is Hands Down The Best

Sat, 03/16/2019 - 15:20

A big part of my job as a dance music blogger is keeping an eye out for upcoming talent — when we shared our article about the official remix pack for Illenium’s “Crashing” yesterday, I kept seeing one name pop up over and over: JVNA. So I decided to check it out, and I have to say, it blew me away.

Rather than remixing it from stems like the others in the official pack, JVNA recreated “Crashing” from the ground up, vocals and all. The result is a brilliant blend of uplifting bass with stunning arpeggios and emotive melodies.

I’ll definitely be throwing JVNA a follow on SoundCloud, and she’s already making a case to be on our 2020 Artists To Watch list at the end of the year. Check out her cover of “Crashing” by Illenium below!

DJ Snake Teams Up With Plastic Toy For Suave New Track “Try Me” [MUST LISTEN]

Sat, 03/16/2019 - 13:06

DJ Snake has teamed up with Plastic Toy for a smooth dance track “Try me” — and it’s a bop!

The song is sweet and suave, working in gorgeous synths and confident melodies to a highly infectious degree. With layers of soft vocals and piano, this is quite tame in terms of DJ Snake’s usual style, but a well received change of pace. As for Plastic Toy, this is the first we’re hearing from the producer on Premiere Classe — or anywhere, for that matter — and we’re instantly craving more.

“The most interesting thing in this song for me, is the lead synth that comes with the drop,” Plastic Toy shares of the release. “With DJ Snake, we pushed the track to a whole new level, giving it that powerful and melodic sound. Working with Snake was very inspiring. He has the ability to feel the music and what’s going to sound good.”

It’s more than good — it’s a vibe. “Try me” is out now and it’s on repeat!

World Of Drum and Bass Tour to Touch Down In LA This Weekend at Xcellerated

Sat, 03/16/2019 - 01:57

It’s time for another exciting UK legends meets hometown heroes this weekend in Los Angeles, as the World of Drum and Bass tour rolls through the City of Angels. The annual spring tour was begun by D&B icon DJ SS and each year features both HIM AND Simon Bassline Smith and at least one other major UK headliner.

This year, the World of Drum and Bass Tour will be rolling through Mexico, Canada and many parts of the US on its North American legs but the first stop is in LA, hosted by Xcellerated. This year is no exception and the festivities will not only include Mr. SS and Mr. Bassline but also the dynamic UK duo of North Base, jungle and DnB legend Mampi Swift and an opening set from yet another UK headliner, High Roll. This will be High Roll’s first time playing in the U.S. so get there early and don’t miss it.

For World of Drum and Bass Xcellerated always comes correct so the newly refurbished Catch One on Pico will also open the loft area and feature as many local heroes as one can cram into a night: Replicant, Maseo/Hokilla, Mr. Deeds, Satin, BK Willy and Lymyt will all be lighting up the decks in the loft. MC hosts for the evening will be Dino, J Tec and Werd.

The World of Drum and Bass Tour only comes around once a year and each time it’s completely different so this is always a don’t-miss event in LA. Pre-sale tickets are recommended and available until 7pm on the day of the event, tomorrow, March 16. Go to the Xcellerated event page for pre-sale link and more info.

KLOUD Gives Illenium’s “Crashing” A Much Heavier Spin

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 19:55

Illenium left a lot of fans scratching their heads with his most recent single, “Crashing” featuring Bahari. While he’s slowly been moving in this directly, this single was the first that was more pop than electronic. We’d never criticize Illenium for simply branching out — after all, the song still sounds amazing — but I’d be lying if a lot of us weren’t hoping for something a little heavier.

Thankfully, a slew of remixes for “Crashing” just dropped, including the gritty KLOUD remix below, premiered by Proximity. From the very beginning, it easy to tell this remix is going in a darker direction. That textured bass synth lurking beneath the surface and the slightly pitched down vocals both hint at as much.

The drop of KLOUD’s remix is a seething electro house banger, focusing mostly on the melody and carrying it forward with a heavy and pulsing rhythm. It’s entirely at odds with the original, nor is it something that Illenium might himself make; but fans are sure to dig this one’s more weighty sound.

The remix pack also includes cuts from DROELOE and Rock Mafia, along with a stripped down version of the original — listen to them all below.
