Rezz Reveals Release Date For Underoath Collab, “Falling”

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 16:14

The Beyond the Senses EP from Rezz is due out July 24, but she’s slowly releasing select singles from the project before we get it all. The first single was her solo “Dark Age” out last month, and now we’re finally getting that special Underoath collaboration, “Falling.”

Space Mom shared the release date with fans this afternoon: June 12, at 12pm EST. Those on the east coast will get it at peak time while those of us on the west coast will wake up to a wonderful treat.

For those who still haven’t heard it, you can listen to it live from EDC thanks to Rezz, who released her full set yesterday including the live appearance by Underoath singer Aaron Gillespie.

See the official announcement from Rezz below!

Oakland decriminalizes magic mushrooms and peyote

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 15:57

First Denver, now Oakland. The city council in Oakland this week unanimously voted to decriminalize hallucinogenic fungi, otherwise known as “magic mushrooms” or “shrooms,” the active chemical in which is psilocybin.

Pursuing leads related to magic mushrooms is hardly an effective use of police time, advocates of the resolution believe it will allow law enforcement to tackle higher-priority issues.

Oakland councilman Loren Taylor added several amendments to the resolution offering guidance for users, which were accepted by the council.

Writes USA Today, “They included suggestions that adults who chose to use hallucinogenic fungi begin with very small amounts so that they can see how they react before they use larger amounts. Another was that users seek expert guidance and consider having a trusted friend with them who is sober during their journey.” These are all tips that seasoned psychedelic users would give to first timers anyhow, emphasizing the knowledgeable decision from the city.

The resolution was presented by Oakland City Council member Noel Gallo.

“We have many mental challenges on our streets today, and it’s important to be able to freely provide whatever medicinal support we can, including the use of plants that have beneficial effects for thousands of years,” Gallo said.

The FDA recently approved trials into psilocybin for depression, echoing Gallo’s statement. Hopefully Denver’s and Oakland’s decisions will influence other cities in the country much like moves to legalize cannabis have done. There are already efforts underway in Oregon to put the decriminalization of mushrooms on that state’s 2020 ballot.

Your EDM Premiere: Marius – IDNTWNTU ft. Eryn Martin

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 14:46

I love learning about new artists that make me excited for dance music. I’ll be the first to admit that after 5 years of working in dance music and nearly a decade of going to shows, the symptoms of being jaded are starting to appear. I’ve been able to keep it at bay by focusing my attention on music that tries to do something differently, and that’s why I’m happy to premiere “IDNTWNTU” from Marius today.

“IDNTWNTU” is the third single to arrive from his forthcoming EP, the follow up to his first EP Existence Problem released in 2017. It’s a bubbly, synth-laden track that bounces between an energetic drop and a serene vocal section.

“IDNTWNTU is the first single that came together for this EP, it’s been around for a while – over a year! I really dig what Eryn brought to it with her topline too, she has a very unique style to her that not a lot of singers are doing right now and isn’t a style you hear too much in electronic music either. That’s a big reason why I wanted her for IDNTWNTU. It’s also a song that probably most closely connects this EP with what I was doing on Pelican Fly with my Existence Problem project, the most ‘electronic’ song I’ve put out recently.” – Marius

Check out “IDNTWNTU” from Marius below, out everywhere tomorrow!

The Chainsmokers: “We’re not even DJing on this upcoming tour”

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 14:14

After years of being abused by the media, The Chainsmokers have become much more selective in who they give their time to. The Zach Sang Show is one that they’ve been to before and have now visited again, and the long-format, unedited interview definitely presents Alex Pall and Drew Taggart in a way not usually depicted.

Throughout the course of the 48-minute interview, a variety of topics get discussed from the Socratic method, to the band’s new live show (yes, I said band), to their new album World War Joy, to their entrepreneurial ventures, and more.

Of particular interest, TCS mention that WWJ is just about halfway done (10:50). They’re constantly working on new tracks — but this also hints that many of the IDs they played at Ultra probably aren’t on the album. They could be putting out a remix album next year, though (19:55). It’s unclear if they’re talking about a traditional remix album in which others remix their songs, or if they’re putting out an album of all their own remixes.

They go on to talk about outside ventures, like scoring a movie, a new live show, a “secret music project” and more (20:20). In addition to founding their own film/production company, they’re also making their own tequila brand now (27:15).

As far as their new live tour with 5SOS coming later this year, The Chainsmokers reveal they’re “not even DJing on this upcoming tour.” Where Drew and Alex are concerned, with the addition of drummer and musical director Matt McGuire, they’re basically a band now (24:05).

“We figured out a way to give people those dance moments but we don’t need to do it off of CDJs,” says Pall.

“It’s in the same way that I wouldn’t consider Odesza, Flume, or Rufus du Sol to be DJs,” adds Taggart. “You’re not using CDJs; we’ll probably run our entire show through Ableton, where we’re queuing stuff, affecting stuff…”

The whole interview is worth a watch and listen. Check it out below!

Porter Robinson Will Replace Martin Garrix At Ultra Korea, Will Play Right After Virtual Self

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 13:08

Porter Robinson Will Replace Martin Garrix At Ultra Korea, Will Play Right After Virtual Self

Eleven days ago, Martin Garrix injured himself jumping off the DJ booth at OMNIA in Las Vegas. (Let that be a lesson to the rest of you.) While it was initially believed to be only a minor sprain, something he could walk off, Garrix announced yesterday that he needed surgery and had to cancel all his upcoming shows, including an appearance at Ultra Korea.

While we’re devastated about the news and wish Martin the speediest of recoveries, there’s a silver lining here. Porter Robinson has been named Garrix’s replacement at Ultra Korea, and that presents a very unique lineup: Porter Robinson will play after Virtual Self… who is also Porter Robinson.

Very few artists are ever fortunate to have two aliases touring at the same time — only a couple examples come to mind, Clockwork and RL Grime, Eric Prydz and Cirez D, etc. It’s even more rare to have both your aliases play at the same event, and pretty much unheard of to have one follow the other on the lineup.

Not to be too overdramatic, but this is literally history in the making.

If you’re lucky enough to be going to Ultra Korea this weekend, you’re in for a very special treat!

since @martingarrix won’t be able to play at ULTRA KOREA, i’m going to fill in for him with a Porter Robinson DJ set.

… and because I was already on the lineup with my sideproject VIRTUAL SELF, that means I’ll be playing two completely different sets in a row on the mainstage!

Avicii’s Posthumous Album “TIM” Is Out Now

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 11:52

Approximately 14 months since Avicii passed away, his posthumous album TIM is now out to the public. Featuring 12 new tracks and collaborations from Chris Martin of Coldplay, Bonn, A R I Z O N A, Imagine Dragons, Aloe Blacc and more, these are likely the final new Avicii tracks that the public will ever hear.

Listening to TIM with that mindset is tragically bittersweet. After all, it’s always easy to implant your own interpretations on an artist’s music after they’ve passed, especially if they’ve taken their own life. (Think Chester Bennington’s music with Linkin Park.) That being said, much of TIM is incredibly bright and hopeful with uplifting melodies and powerful writing.

Of course, the album didn’t turn out exactly as Avicii would have wanted, at least not one hundred percent. Most of the tracks on the album weren’t entirely finished at the time of his death, and were polished and completed based on directions he’d left behind by trusted production partners. It’s as close to the real Avicii as we’ll get, so we might as well throw out those thoughts of incompleteness out.

Along with previously released singles “SOS” with Aloe Blacc and “Tough Love” with Agnes, Vargas & Lagola, fans also get “Heaven” with Chris Martin, “Hold The Line” with A R I Z O N A, and my personal favorite, “Heart Upon My Sleeve” with Imagine Dragons.

At only 38 minutes, the album is over before you realize it and you’re left wanting so much more — another bittersweet realization at the end.

Your EDM Playlist: A.M.C’s Favorite EDC Bangers

Thu, 06/06/2019 - 04:32

Now that the dust has cleared from the desert melee that is known as EDC Vegas, one of the sets from the Basspod that everyone keeps talking about was that of A.M.C and Turno. It was both highly anticipated and did not disappoint. But what, then, were the favorite tracks both played and heard by the Basspod darlings and wouldn’t you like to hear them and relive that magical night?

Luckily A.M.C has put together a playlist for that very purpose and because it was such an epic set, it really needs no further introduction from the peanut gallery here at Your EDM. So here it is, A.M.C’s playlist of favorite tracks both that he played and that he heard at EDC:

Mind The Gap – A.M.C

First sampler from my album ENERGY (out late September) and its still one of my favs. Does damage where ever I play it which I’m really happy about because that was the intention when I was making it.

Mash Up The Place (A.M.C Remix) – Riot Ten  

This remix kinda went under the radar a little. Was nice to do a remix for Riot Ten on Dim Mak. I tailored the remix to suit the American market and it certainly seems to have done the trick.

Tap Ho ( A.M.C Remix Pointless VIP) – TC

The remix that put me on the production map really. Forever grateful that TC let me do it and its been in peoples sets ever since. I called this VIP I did the “Pointless VIP” because essentially its just that. Same as the original remix but with less drums in places, longer bass notes and extra bass stabs for good measure.

Ebony Dubsters – Ra

Very old track this but for some reason has worked its way back into my set. Ebony Dubsters were Shy FX and T-Power and this really was the tune that put that name out there. It so simple as well, I think that’s why it works so well.

Boundaries VIP – A.M.C & Turno

Little VIP I did of Boundaries by myself and Turno. I originally made it for when I was playing after Turno at a show in Birmingham UK just to surprise him. It drops like the original but then takes a twist. Its a proper curve ball.

Courier – A.M.C

The sampler off the ENERGY album that has just been released. First made when I was playing in Vienna Austria this track almost wrote its self. The 16 before the drop originally had a big drum build up but I accidentally bounced it with out the drums once and thought it sounded so good with out them I decided to stick with it.

Look Out – A.M.C

Heavy techy slammer I wrote for my ENERGY LP. Tune came together when I was really angry about something (I cant remember what now). I think you can hear the anger in the drop.

Kanine – Want You

I like to play energetic tunes (hence the LP name) and Want You by Kanine is one of those tracks. Hes a lovely bloke as well and I’m so happy things are going well for him.

Vendetta (A.M.C & Turno Remix VIP) – DC Breaks 

Again another VIP I made just before one of the shows. This came together when one of the plugins glitched just before the drop so I re-recorded it back in and built the rest of it around it. Cant seem to stop playing this. Goes off every time.

Warthog – Simula

Tune is a beast! Apparently he wrote it just before a festival we have in the UK called Westfest. First time I played this it went off and still does.

A.M.C’s “Courrier” teaser single for the upcoming album ENERGY is out now on his Titan imprint and can be streamed or purchased by clicking here.

SAVI & Taryn Manning Go One Deeper In “Bring Me Back To You”

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 18:25

After dropping the debut single from his new group AHZ, SAVI also continues his work with his solo project. His latest endeavor brings a new track with longtime friend and collaborator, Taryn Manning, in the form of “Bring Me Back To You”. Combining lush vocals and chord progressions with a deeper trap oriented main section, “Bring Me Back To You” is a pleasant departure from the generic future bass sound. The utilization of dark stabs during the drop give it an almost future house vibe, something not unheard of but definitely appreciated in this context. Definitely another favorite from SAVI.

Diplo Explains Jonas/Turner Ceremony Live Stream: “I Didn’t Know It Was A Serious Wedding”

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 18:13

Ever since Diplo‘s notorious live stream of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner‘s wedding, the back and forth between the couple and the producer has been somewhat of a media circus. Now, Diplo wants to set the record straight for good.

Following the viral live stream, Joe Jonas publicly poked fun at Diplo in saying he uses the ‘gram “more than a 13-year-old.” Diplo later clapped back in saying the only thing that “ruined” the wedding was Jonas’s “fit.”

In a more recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, Diplo opened up about the whole ordeal. Apparently the spontaneous nature of the ceremony led him to believe it wasn’t that “serious.” Jonas even called him up to apologize about how things got blown out of proportion.

“I didn’t know it was a serious wedding,” he said. “I really didn’t know what was going on. I was hanging out with [Joe Jonas] after the Billboard Awards… and I was, like, ‘This is crazy. Let me record this.’ And there was mad people with cameras! I didn’t know I was, like, the only person recording this thing.”

“I was talking to Joe today. There was a story that came out that he was, like, mad about me. He called me today to apologize,” he also explained while On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “Guess I’m ruining it now because I was going to continue to have beef with him. Pay attention to me and Jonas’ beef because I’m coming for him.”

Maybe he could have left the dog filters out of it. Either way, we can all move on now.

Dutch Police Battle Drug Crime with New Xtacy Perfume

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 18:12

Dutch police are battling the production of ecstasy in a rather innovative way…

Bottles of Xtacy, a perfume with packaging that resembles Chanel No. 5, have been circulated to police departments across the Netherlands. The idea is that consumers will approach their pop up booths to smell the fragrance. While it looks and sounds like a designer brand — it smells like actual MDMA.

Its purpose isn’t to make the masses smell like the party drug, but rather to educate and help combat ecstasy labs and dumps of ecstasy waste. By offering up perfume samples on the streets, the OM and police are creating awareness and asking everyone to report signals of labs or dumps across the country. The most obvious signal being the aroma of MDMA.

Dutch public prosecutor Antoinette Doedens made a statement along with the launch of this initiative — “smell is the most important way that people can recognize an ecstasy lab. That is why we want to spread the smell over the entire country so that everyone knows what to look out for.”

With the production of ecstasy and other synthetic drugs, there always runs a risk of toxicity and gases, fire, or explosion, especially at an amateur level. Hazardous waste is also a huge problem, which can affect the health of people, animals and plants.

Jauz & Axel Boy Team Up For Massive Bass Heavy Collab [LISTEN]

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 17:55

Bet you didn’t see this one coming! Jauz and Axel Boy have teamed up for a new collab on Bite This! that will feed those EDM cravings deep inside.

“I Dare You” is built to satisfy bass heads and house lovers alike. With its screaming synths, rave-worthy melodic moments and absolutely insane drops, the gripping track dares listeners to lose their minds. As with any Jauz or Axwel Boy production, the sound design is crystal clear.

This is a far cry from Jauz’s most recent release, his “Baby Shark” remix. As we all know and heard with his debut album The Wise and the Wicked, Jauz is always changing things up. It’s a kind reminder that dance music needs his vision and paired with Axel Boy — they’re both unstoppable forces.

Listen here and enjoy! “I Dare You”… sorry, had to.

Porter Robinson Starts Fund In Honor Of His Brother Defeating Cancer

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 17:55

Porter Robinson Starts Fund In Honor Of His Brother Defeating Cancer

In November 2016, Porter Robinson’s brother Mark was diagnosed with and hospitalized for a rare form of cancer called Burkitt lymphoma. Through a combination of specialist care, he went into remission in February 2017 and now lives cancer free (with regular check ups).

Porter is taking the opportunity now as his debut festival Second Sky approaches to launch the Robinson Malawi Fund. He explains:

“The survival rate for Burkitt lymphoma in the US is 90% or higher. But for kids in Malawi, where it’s much more common due to the connection between malaria and this form of cancer, the survival rate can be as low as about 29%. One of Mark’s doctors, Dr. Westmoreland, leads the pediatric cancer program that UNC operates in Malawi.

I’m starting a fund in cooperation with UNC to help improve the survival rate in that region so that those families won’t have to needlessly lose loved ones. In this case, more resources translates directly into higher survival rates.”

Mark’s doctor, Dr. Westmoreland, will have a booth at Second Sky to share information and accept donations for this cause. Porter will match all donations made at the festival. In addition, Porter and Goldenvoice are donating one dollar from each ticket sale for the sold-out event, and the festival’s online live stream will also feature a way to make donations.

If you’d like to get involved in supporting this cause, you can find more information here. You can see Porter Robinson and more at Second Sky in just a little over a week.

in november of 2016, my then 17-year-old younger brother Mark was hospitalized with a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Burkitt lymphoma. he had a mass in his abdomen that was doubling in size every 24 hours. mark is pretty much my best friend – it was utterly devastating and one of the most difficult things i've ever been through (and surely a million times worse for him). through mark's own fortitude, and through the high quality of care from his doctors (Drs. Westmoreland & Hipps), nurses and staff at @UNCMedicine, i'm extremely happy to say that, as of February 2017 Mark finished his treatment and is now 100% cancer free and thriving. here's why i'm bringing this up: the survival rate for Burkitt lymphoma in the US is 90% or higher. but for kids in malawi, where it's much more common due to the connection between malaria and this form of cancer, the survival rate can be as low as about 29%. one of Mark’s doctors, Dr. Westmoreland, leads the pediatric cancer program that UNC operates in Malawi. i’m starting a fund in cooperation with UNC to help improve the survival rate in that region so that those families won't have to needlessly lose loved ones. in this case, more resources translates directly into higher survival rates. Second Sky (@secondskyfest) is going to have a booth (with Mark's doctor there!) to share information and accept donations for this cause — we have a goal to raise $50,000 (or hopefully higher) and i'm going to match everyone's donations at the festival! if you’d like to get involved in supporting this cause, you can find more information here (also the link in my bio): www.robinsonmalawifund.org

Mystery Artist REVEL Drops Insane Remix Of Dog Blood’s New Song “Turn Off The Lights”

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 16:55

Dog Blood just dropped their new EP last Friday and it’s still making a regular rotation in our playlists. And, like with any new release from a project Skrillex is involved with, everyone and their mother has come out to try their hand at remixing the tracks. Most barely come up with anything halfway decent, and then there’s REVEL…

The song popped up on my recommended tracks and started auto-playing, but soon enough I had to go and look at who made this wild remix. Just remixing Dog Blood and making it sound good is a task enough by itself, but somehow keeping the same vibe and energy while putting your own spin on it is an accomplishment worthy of acknowledgement.

REVEL is a mystery — with a devilish aesthetic and red/black color scheme, it’s no surprise what this project sounds like when you hit play. That being said, the quality is up there with Phuture Doom in terms of insane, acid-fueled, metal-adjacent bass and house music. Dog Blood’s “Turn Off The Lights” gets morphed into something new and dangerous, and I’m absolutely here for it.

Check out the new one from REVEL below, and keep an eye out for more. We definitely will be.

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 16:31

We just found out about this Tyzo Bloom single, but it’s too good to not post. “Sucker” ft. GiGi is the perfect indie dance jam for outdoor parties or driving with the windows down. It’s simple yet effective beat and chorus that you can sing along to easily make this a song that should be injected straight into your Summer playlist. With an EP on the way you should keep your eyes on Tyzo Bloom.

Matthew Koma Puts Zedd On Blast On The Anniversary of Their Breakout Hit

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 15:22

Yesterday marked the 7th anniversary of “Spectrum” from Zedd and Matthew Koma, the song that arguably launched Zedd’s now illustrious career. For many, this song carries with it a beautiful memory of times gone by when dance music was perhaps more wholesome; or at least, progressive house was more prevalent.

For Koma, however, the song carries with it a darker history of ego, toxic behavior, and a spectacular working relationship that could have been. In a series of slides, Koma describes the working environment with Zedd over the years, how Zedd allegedly took credit for his work, excluded him from events, and put on airs of professionalism when those behind the scenes apparently knew better.

“I want to finally be transparent about this,” Koma begins. “It’s a really sad truth because I’m extremely proud of the work he and I did together… unfortunately my good feelings toward those songs have all but disappeared as they were experienced alongside someone so toxic and self serving that it occupied the space where any happiness could exist.”

Koma describes Zedd as someone who had an inferiority complex at first. Then he describes how Zedd slowly and systematically “removed” him from the equation by taking credit for lyrics that Koma says he wrote alone, nor being paid for singing on “Spectrum” for 2 or 3 years. Koma even suggests Zedd is no longer involved in his own productions.

Other stories of little toxic actions here and there spell out a longer history of this behavior, and paint a much different pciture of the man most of the dance music community believes to be wholesome.

“For years I thought maybe it was me,” Koma reflected, “but over time, I’d run into other people who worked with him […] and the sentiment was shared. He’s the worst.”

We’ve reached out to Zedd’s team for comment but have not heard back at time of publishing. We’ll update this article with any additional information provided.

Martin Garrix Cancels All Upcoming Shows Due To Ankle Injury

Wed, 06/05/2019 - 12:29

A couple of weekends ago, Martin Garrix was performing on stage when he suffered a terrible ankle injury. The DJ/producer pushed through most of his set, but ultimately left in an ambulance.

Now, we’re learning the serious nature of the injury. To avoid making things worse, Garrix has been instructed by medical professionals to keep off his feet for the next four weeks. In turn, the touring act is being forced to cancel his upcoming gigs.

Here’s the press statement, straight from his team:

It is with deepest regrets that Martin Garrix has to announce that he is forced to cancel all his shows the coming weeks due to a serious ankle injury suffered during his show in Las Vegas on May 25th.
Even though feeling positive after some days of rest, further examinations have determined that all his ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle. Therefore Garrix is forced to follow the specialist’s advice and cancel all his shows for at least the upcoming four weeks.

Garrix: ’’I’m devastated that I have to cancel these shows since nothing makes me happier than performing for you guys. I feel most alive when I’m on stage, seeing you guys smile. I was really looking forward to it and I never want to disappoint my fans. Unfortunately this is out of my control and I will need a surgery and enough rest to fully recover. If I won’t get surgery now I might permanently damage my ankle, which could mean I won’t be able to perform at all anymore. I want to thank everyone for their continuous support and I hope to be able to get back on stage to perform for you guys again really soon.’’

Get well soon!

Press Statement: Martin Garrix forced to cancel all shows coming weeks It is with deepest regrets that Martin Garrix has to announce that he is forced to cancel all his shows the coming weeks due to a serious ankle injury suffered during his show in Las Vegas on May 25th. Even though feeling positive after some days of rest, further examinations have determined that all his ankle ligaments are torn and surgery is needed to prevent permanent damage to his ankle. Therefore Garrix is forced to follow the specialist’s advice and cancel all his shows for at least the upcoming four weeks.

Authorities have released the names of those killed in the tragic helicopter crash at Backwoods music festival at Mulberry Mountain in Arkansas. The pilot, Chuck Dickson of Tulsa, Oklahoma, lost his life in the crash, along with two festival workers, Sarah Hill of Austin, Texas, and Marco Ornelas of Mexico.

The sightseeing helicopter was due for arrival at 7 pm on Sunday and never made its way back. Sadly, it ultimately went down not far from the landing site at Mulberry Mountain. Officials caught up to the crash around 8 pm and an investigation is still currently underway.

Backwoods released a heartfelt statement following the crash:

Today, our hearts rest with our three team members, friends, and family of ours, who passed yesterday. These three individuals were incredibly hard working and loved by our festival community, and wanted to continuously improve the experience for you, as well as others who attended every year. The fourth individual who was involved in the helicopter crash was a beloved Backwoods attendee, and thankfully, we have report from the local Sherrif, is now stable and on the road to recovery after an intense rescue effort last night. We thank you for understanding that we were unable to run the stages with lights and lasers during the air rescue which ensued late into the night, or sound due to radio interference. Call your loved ones today, and please tell them you love them. 

A GoFundMe has since been started up in honor of one of the victims, Hill and her family. She’s described as a person who “radiated with love and compassion.” So far, over $6,000 of the $15,000 goal has been raised.
