Blunts & Blondes just dropped an equally heavy and uplifting new remix for Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy‘s amazing collaboration “Lift You Up.”
Brace yourselves for this one, because the dreamy drum and bass production put in place by Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy gets blasted into a dub-driven atmosphere. Playing with the euphoric melodies and moments of the track, Blunts & Blondes provides a totally fresh perspective on the upbeat collab. He manages to do the original much justice, but still emphasizes an all-new vibe in the process.
Here’s what Blunts & Blondes has to say about the release: “I’m so excited to finally share my Lift You Up remix! This is the most support I’ve ever gotten on a tune and it means the world to me. I hope u all love it as much as I do!”
This new remix signals an entire remix pack for “Lift You Up,” due out Friday on Deadbeats. If this is any indication, the entire remix EP is going to be fire.
Zeds Dead also have a compilation album full of collaborations with Deadbeats artists coming out soon — see all the rumored

TroyBoi just dropped a track with Skrillex not too long ago, and he’s already teasing another, this time with added help from Ty Dolla $ign, Ludmilla, and LAN. “WARLORDZ” will be part of TroyBoi’s upcoming V!BES Vol. 3 EP, out July 26 on OWSLA — but this new one won’t be.
The announcement was made this past weekend, though it seems to have gone under the radar for the most part. “Malokera” will feature a diverse array of artists: Brazilian funk singer MC Lan, Brazilian singer and songwriter Ludmilla, and hip hop artist Ty Dolla $ign. What will the track sound like with so many features? Hard to know.
No release date is specified, but TroyBoi hints to some time this summer. With his EP coming out at the end of July, expect this one late August or early September.View this post on Instagram

As far as music streaming goes, Spotify has the most paid subscribers at 100 million and Apple Music has a solid 60 million — but Amazon Music is gaining on them.
According to a new report, the company’s music platform grew roughly 70 percent within the past year. In April, Amazon had accumulated more than 32 million subscribers with its music services, including Unlimited and Prime Music.
Amazon Music Unlimited was a little late to the party, but its home speaker system has seemingly given the company an edge on the competition. As more and more people have brought Amazon’s Echo into their households, more have incorporated streaming services, as well.
Perhaps Amazon’s best quality is its price flexibility. Amazon Music Unlimited is available for $10 per month, but it also offers the service to Prime members for just $8 per month. Users who listen through the Echo can access music at just $4 per month. Finally, Alexa device owners can listen for free — as long as they don’t mind listening to ads.
It seems Amazon Music has become a third serious contender in the music streaming game. More here.

How To Get The Old Person Filter Everyone Is Posting
I’m not sure if you noticed, but a bunch of producers have been posting selfies the past day or two looking much older. There’s nothing like a time machine at play here, just some clever algorithm from an app called FaceApp.
The rather inconspicuous name belies the complexity of the app and the accuracy it has in delivering an aged look. Using it on myself, the app came back with an image that looked incredibly similar to how my father looked. You can even use it to change your hair color, put on glasses, and other modifications (Pro version only).

When you open FaceApp for the first time, it automatically crawls your photos (with your permission) for faces to make the process even more seamless.

Happy birthday, Porter Robinson! One of our favorite producers-slash-people is turning 27 today and what a year it’s been for him.
2018-2019 has been a year of growth and change for Porter in more ways than one. Most of all, he announced his debut tour as Virtual Self, which took him across the US and world, playing festivals as well as intimate clubs. His newest project also got him nominated for a Grammy, for “Ghost Voices” in the Best Dance Recording category.
Porter also announced his very own artist festival in March 2019. Originally called “Multiverse,” Second Sky eventually named G Jones, Madeon, Nina Las Vegas, and more on its lineup, with Skrillex coming out as a special guest on the second day.
Just last month before the festival, Porter posted a selfie showing he’d turned blonde — a staggering change in his image and one that perhaps signaled something new coming.
Days after showing off his new blonde ‘do, Porter also played Ultra Korea as both his main project and Virtual Self, playing one after the other. He played as a replacement to Martin Garrix and gave him a touching shout-out, as well.
As part of throwing his festival in June, Porter started the Robinson Malawi Fund to raise money to fight Burkitt lymphoma, a type of cancer, in Malawi. Combining donations, money from ticket sales, and Porter’s match, the fund raised over $150,000.
Happy birthday again to Porter Robinson!

MDMA in conjunction with psychotherapy appears to be successful in treating alcoholism, according to a new clinical study.
The first-of-its-kind trial was conducted over eight weeks and saw four patients from different walks of life: “a 54-year-old mother-of-three, a 34-year-old man with two children, a retired man who had been drinking for 30 years and a former heroin user.” Each were treated with weekly psychotherapy sessions and monthly doses of 99.9 percent pure MDMA.
Two of the adults “slipped up” and had a single drink each over the eight weeks. However, the other two subjects remained completely sober for the entirety of the treatment. Although this was a small, four-person study, the results proved to be quite remarkable.
Three of the four people taking part in the trial attempted to quit drinking before the MDMA treatment. None of them succeeded. This time around, they all managed to stay sober for at least nine months.
One of the patients was quoted saying — “It’s given me what I wanted; to be cured, to not have the cravings, to look at life differently. I’m not so angry at everything… Being under MDMA was beautiful. It showed me the real me; the me without alcohol.”
This was a necessary first study in the ongoing research to investigate whether MDMA can be used from a medical standpoint to battle addiction. The direct effects of MDMA were not measured, but rather, this study was carried out to test the safety of the program.
Read more extensive details on the trial here.

After suffering an ankle injury earlier this year, Martin Garrix is back on the horse. Not only has he been tearing it up at shows again, but he’s coming at us with some brand new music.
Garrix seems to always have a collaboration up his sleeve and is keen on exposing upcoming talent. This time, he has teamed up with singer/songwriter JRM to bring us “These Are The Times.” The song is due out on the producer’s own STMPD RCRDS later this week.
In a social media post, Garrix reveals the new collab: “wohooo excited to let you know These Are The Times with @jamaicanjerm will be out on Thursday (2 PM CEST / 8 AM EDT)!!”
Check back here on Thursday to hear the latest from Martin Garrix.Martin Garrix – “These Are The Times” ft. JRM (Out Thursday)

Illenium Shares Another Preview Of Unreleased Music On Instagram
The countdown to Illenium’s third album, Ascend, out August 16, ticks on. It’s been two months since we last got a single from the album, “Good Things Fall Apart” with Jon Bellion, but it seems another is on the horizon soon.
A little over two weeks ago, Illenium shared a clip of an unreleased song on Instagram Stories from a show in Tokyo. Now, he’s shared another clip on Instagram Stories, seemingly of the same song. The stories are presented in parallel fashion, horizontally-oriented, with “unreleased” in the bottom right (if turned 90 degrees counter-clockwise). The first video even has one “shush” emoji, while the new video has two, implying a continuation of sorts, if you were to interpret it that way.
The clip below seems to show the second drop in the track — if the first is slower, more melodic, it makes sense with Illenium’s past music that the second is the more energetic of the two.
Check it out below, hopefully we’ll get this as a single soon!

It’s been over two months since we’ve gotten new music from Slow Magic, and over a year since we’ve gotten new, original music. The last original release was his AWAY EP in April 2018, but he’s getting ready to release the next chapter in his career this Friday.
All we have of the new single out in 4 days is a brilliant teaser video, uploaded in reverse — though the audio is still playing forward. It’s just enough to pique your interest, while still keeping plenty hidden, perfect to both whet your appetite and excite you for more.
Trust us when we say that you’re going to love this new single. Watch the teaser below.

If you haven’t heard of Pontifexx, then today is your lucky day. He’s a young rising star, hailing from Brazil, who’s just 21 and has already has more than 20 million plays in his last 10 releases. He has received support from big names such as Nicky Romero, Ferry Corsten, Goldfish, Bakermat, Autograf and Sam Feldt. Not to mention his presentation on the Perry Stage of Lollapalooza Brazil, which earned him the title of the youngest artist in the entire line-up of 2019’s edition.
The secret of the young man from São Paulo is to tell deep stories in each of his tracks, which are a reflect all his feelings. This can be seen and heard in his newest EP, the first of his musical career, ‘The Light’. It was produced entirely in collaboration with Deadline and is packed with four incredible tracks you’ll find yourself wanting to listen to over and over again.
Combining elements of progressive house & trance with his own signature style, both Pontifexx and Deadline created an EP that truly stands out. My favorite track is “You and Me”, it’s flawless from start to finish with an electrifying arrangement.
Keep and eye on Pontifexx this year, and check out ‘The Light’ EP below!

This past weekend, G Jones shared the tragic news that his mother had passed away. She passed in the company of her children and her childhood best friends by her side. While no words of condolence can accurately convey our empathy, we do offer our thoughts to G Jones and his family at this time.
In light of this terrible news, G Jones has decided to postpone upcoming tour dates in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., and New York City.
“Greg wants you all to know that he is extremely sorry to everyone disappointed by this, and he asks for everyone to please respect his and his family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
Surely all fans will understand this decision and allow Greg and his family the appropriate time to heal. Follow G Jones for updates regarding new show dates.

It’s no secret that Enamour is incredibly talented. He has developed a sound that delicately walks the line between deep introspection and pure club play. If you catch him live, you’ll see that his sets are an intricate blend of deep, progressive, tech house and techno that values musicality over anything else.
He’s back with a brand new EP, ‘Voye/Culture Is Chaos’, signed to none other than the prog powerhouse label, Zerothree. Strap in, because this is a mesmerizing 15 minute ride through some of the best progressive music I’ve heard all year.
“Voye” kicks things off in a dark, hypnotic fashion, whisking you away as bright melodies flutter on top of a thundering groove. “Culture Is Chaos” maintains a similar aura, driven by a shimmering lead and an impeccable arrangement.
‘Voye/Culture Is Chaos’ both bring a real classy underground vibe to the label, each telling their own journey in a very different way. Expect twists, turns and elements that will wow. Two records that will keep your ears active – an EP that will stand the test of time.

Swedish House Mafia unleashed their collaboration with A$AP Rocky while performing at Ultra Europe last night. Along with the song, a bright and bold message lit up on stage — #JusticeForRocky.
It’s unclear at this point how long Rocky will be held, or the severity of the potential charges against him. His arrest and jail conditions have raised concerns in the media. Hence, the #JusticeForRocky statement.
In addition, the rapper has been forced to cancel upcoming festival appearances including Tomorrowland.
Last night, however, SHM brought Rocky to Ultra Europe in spirit. The group unleashed their brand new collaboration together, an ID previously revealed on social media as “Frankenstein.” The title has proven to be fitting, because it’s an absolute monstrous collab.

It’s time for new music from Fedde Le Grand, and this time he blends all sorts of stuff into a super fun festival/club track “Skank.” It’s an interesting track because Fedde is really playing around with a lot of different genres in a short amount of space, however, the finished product is remarkably cohesive for all of its diverse traits. From it’s dancehall sample opening, to the tambourine synth layered over that give at an old school rave feel, to even the dash of psy-trance, this a track that you will get down to!
As aforementioned, the track opens with a dancehall sample, after it sets the tone, the more electronic elements come in, namely the repeating tambourine and a palm muted guitar riff that perfectly compliments the dancehall sound and groove. The buildup is surprisingly hard and bombastic, a little surprising coming on the heels off the intro to the song, but once it drops, it makes sense. The tempo and bassline of the drop are definitely psy-trance, however the synths give the song that signature Fedde Le Grand house groove, and it also utilizes a trap drum breakdown mixed with the dancehall vocal.
No doubt about it, we have another dancefloor banger on our hands, courtesy of Fedde Le Grand. “Skank” is out now on Armada!

I got “Life Long After Death” from QUIX, Adventure Club and badXchannels in my inbox a little over a week ago. When I first listened to it, it was really good, I liked it a lot. But somehow, in the five or so days it’s been since I last heard to now writing this review, it’s gotten better… I can’t quite explain it, but it has.
“LLAD” benefits to an incredible degree from the vocals of badXchannels, aka Craig Owens, aka the lead singer of Chiodos. His powerful voice lends itself perfectly to both the harder, dubstep first drop as well as the emotive, stadium-sized second drop. In all senses of the word, this is definitely a song, not just a track, a distinction that isn’t often examined in EDM.
Both QUIX and Adventure Club have already been having a stellar 2019; no doubt the same can be said for badXchannels. A collaboration between the four of them is something that wouldn’t seem appropriate on paper, but comes across as one of my favorite releases of the year so far in reality.
Listen below, out now via Dim Mak.

We’ve come to expect nothing but quality records from Jauz and he just keeps getting better!
His latest release, “Don’t Leave Me” is a deep, synth-driven production straight from the soul. It’s a dance floor burner through and through, with undeniable rhythm and musicality. Jauz is certainly taking it back to his house roots with this track. Back to the kind of music capable of reaching out and touching your soul.
Fans seem to have a love/hate relationship with the track and Jauz is about it:
Thanks for all the love on Don’t Leave Me so far!!! Glad to be able to put out something that isn’t a “heavy banger” and you guys still understand and enjoy it and also shout out to the haters too! I’d rather make a song you LOVE or HATE than just feel “whatever” about
— JAUZ (@Jauzofficial) July 13, 2019
With this, the producer leads his forthcoming ‘Jauz Presents: This Is Off The Deep End’ compilation. So far, little is known about the other artists or track titles on the record. But if this single is any indication, it’s going to be phenomenal.

Louis the Child are speaking out after fans littered the ground at their Red Rocks show. Photo and video of the mess has circulated online, sparking an outcry for music fans visiting the venue to leave no trace.
As one person on Reddit explains, “there was a garbage and recycling bin not even a yard away and people still threw their trash everywhere.”
“This has to stop,” Louis the Child writes in another post below. “If you’re coming to our shows please clean up after yourself.”
The images below expose the mess — primarily cans and plastic containers — left on the ground. With an outdoor venue as beautiful and sacred as Red Rocks, this is especially difficult to see happening at an EDM show.
Let this be a lesson for all of us. When attending Red Rocks, or any other venue for that matter, please lead by example and discard items in the appropriate trash/recycling bins. Not only does this help protect the environment, but makes for a more enjoyable music experience for all.Louis The Child Urge Fans To Clean Up

Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello is speaking out after an aspiring producer called the group “moneytakers” on social media.
Specifically, the commenter said, “Release some music yo moneytakers.”
That was enough to set Angello off. The producer responded explaining the core difference between himself and the hater. Instead of releasing music for the sake of releasing music, Angello said he and Swedish House Mafia take their time to craft quality productions to “extreme perfection.” Surely, this is what makes SHM’s timeless music stand out — and why we’re still waiting to hear new music in 2019.
He goes as far to call out what he describes as “fast-food thinking artists.” To Angello and those he works most closely with, it’s quality over quantity every time.
Swedish House Mafia have hyped up fans in 2019 with a strong run of epic performances, all new production, and even a few merch pieces to mark their return. As we anticipate new music, we can expect nothing but the best is to come.

Last year’s Coachella produced one of our favorite viral videos of all time: Kid Cudi coming out and dancing with an ear-to-ear grin on his face while MGMT played “Electric Feel.” Across all social media platforms, the video has received tens of millions of views, but Cudi just cleared up something — he wasn’t drunk at all.
Genius posted the video again on Twitter last week, prompting Cudi to come out with the true story of the affair.
I dont know if I ever told yall this but, this was right when the acid started kickin in and I couldn’t help myself haha so no I wouldn’t say I was drunk just trippin balls. @whoisMGMT thanx for lettin me groove w you. My face was melting and I felt so fuckin free!!

Cardi B Reveals Her Concert Fees In Post Explaining Why She Doesn’t Tour
One of the best things you can do as an artist for your fans is to play shows in their area — but not every artist has the capacity or desire to perform a full tour. Some, even, don’t have the need when festivals are paying out the ass to have you perform and eating the bulk of the production costs on their own.people are “are not fans”
Recently, Cardi B lashed out at followers on Instagram who “are not fans” to explain to them why she doesn’t tour.
“LET’S SAY IF I GO ON TOUR AND I DO 600K A NIGHT RIGHT… SOUNDS GOOD BUT LET’S GET IN THE TOURING BUSINESS SHALL WE? STAGE PRODUCTION GOTTA BE MASSIVE SINCE THE FANS PAY MASSIVE SO JUST ON STAGE AND PRODUCTION I WILL HAVE TO PUT ABOUT 450K MAYBE MORE A NIGHT SINCE YOU KNOW BARDIGANG DESERVE EVERYTHING. DON’T FORGET, OUTFIT, MAKEUP, HAIR, I’LL BE LEFT WITH LIKE 150K A NIGHT”
Seems reasonable to me.
In the now-deleted post, she also shared the guarantees festivals are promising her for performing, including nearly $1 million at Open Air Festival and $500,000 at Veld Festival. All totaled, it adds up to more than $10 million in the span of less than two months. See the deleted post and full breakdown below.
