Fire Breaks Out At Ultra Music Festival 2019

Sat, 03/30/2019 - 11:53

Attendees making their way toward the exits at Ultra Music Festival last night were met with a tree that had caught on fire. Security was ushering attendees away from the area, which was already congested due to issues with the shuttles, as the fire department rushed to quell the flames.

Reports are that embers from a firework caused the fire, but it has not been confirmed. Regardless, Miami Commissioner Ken Russell has said that Ultra will not use fireworks for the remainder of the weekend.

“The fire itself seemed to have taken place between the stage and the causeway,” he said.

No one was injured.

This, following a pledge by the festival that no wildlife would be harmed. Ultra’s attorney Rafe Petersen stated on Thursday, “[…] the event organizers remain committed to environmental protection and will implement numerous environmental mitigation measures as well as a sustainability plan that will ensure the protection of Virginia Key.”

I guess no more fireworks for @ultra pic.twitter.com/FSTHDoGUbm

Marshmello Calls Out Ultra Over KFC Set

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 20:33

Playing at Ultra Music Festival, especially on the main stage, is an honor not bestowed to many. At most, maybe a dozen or so new acts will play the stage each year while the regularly recurring acts like Fedde Le Grand, Tiësto, David Guetta, and Afrojack continue to lay claim to their slots. So when one of those slots is taken up as a gimmick, some DJs take notice.

Colonel Sanders played the main stage this afternoon at Ultra and it was an… interesting experience. The roughly four minute set was as entertaining as it was confusing, watching a helmet-clad person dance around and promote a fried chicken restaurant.

It seems, however improbable, that Marshmello actually took issue with the booking.

“This @kfc colonel sanders Djing at @ultra is lame,” he tweeted. “I can think of a lot of other artists that actually deserve to be on that stage instead.”

This @kfc colonel sanders Djing at @ultra is lame. I can think of a lot of other artists that actually deserve to be on that stage instead.

— marshmello (@marshmellomusic) March 29, 2019

Now, I’m not ruling out the possibility that this tweet was tongue in cheek — it’s my opinion that it probably was. I’m not even ruling out the possibility that it was actually Marshmello under that Col. Sanders helmet. We have no way of knowing it wasn’t.

But, let’s say, for argument’s sake, that he was being serious. The set was five minutes, hardly a time slot that another artist might “deserve.” Overall, it took no time out of Ultra’s schedule and it made for a catchy headline and story to take home to mom, dad, and friends.

So what do you think? Is Marshmello being serious? Is he really the one under that helmet? Or is this completely in jest? Let us know.

Nissin & HyperX Introduce Limited Edition Cup Noodle Headphones

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 19:20

Your favorite cup noodle brand just upped its game and teased a phenomenal new product that we absolutely need. In partnership with HyperX, Nissin is releasing a limited edition pair of cup noodle headphones (pictured above).

Obviously to be used more as a talking point than as actual everyday headphones, the design is definitely killer and makes real use of the cup noodle aesthetic. Two classic Nissin noodle cups will take the place of the generic headphone pads, and they even come with a microphone dubbed the ‘microphork,’ which seems to have a special function.

Nissin said in a statement: “Through the use of a detachable Microphork™, the headphones cancel out all Cup Noodle slurping sounds while still delivering crystal-clear sound quality… the patent-pending Noodlette™ ear pads woven together with noodle fibers deliver the silky soft caress of ramen noodles for your ears…”

The big joke is that these headphones, called the HyperX Cup MIX-Ins, will actually go on sale on April 1. You can find out more about these headphones on the official Nissin Fan merch store when it drops.

Here’s What That Colonel Sanders Ultra Set Was All About

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 17:58

Everyone took notice of the Ultra set times via the app when it was revealed that none other than KFC founder Colonel Sanders was set to perform on the main stage. It’s easily one of the strangest bookings we’ve ever seen, and we have a lot of questions.

Sanders was supposed to be on the live stream, but as it’s running about 20 minutes late right now, it cut straight from Matoma to SOPHIE at the Live Arena. (See the live stream and full schedule here.)

Thankfully, at least one person had service enough to upload a video of the KFC founder’s set and it… is…

Well, just take a look.

Some person in a large Colonel Sanders helmet is DJing on stage with accompanying visuals — this seems to be he most elaborate PR stunt ever pulled by a brand at a music festival and we can’t tell if our cringing is out of love or pure awkwardness.

Hot New Track from Roukin + Hobbs Included in Doorly’s Reptile Dysfunction Sampler

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 16:06

Miami Music Week is kicking off and the impending marathon that is Ultra is coming in hot. With that in mind take a look at this fresh track from Doorly’s Reptile Dysfunction Sampler that’s been put together in honor of the annual event.

The track, Game Plan is a collab between Roukin and Hobbs, and sets the tone for what’s sure to be an amazing weekend. It’s a an easy blend of g-funk, synth-pop and house, and gives you a warm reminder of good times in Ibiza.

In fact, the track itself was inspired by the glow of the island and that magic transition from day into night. Other hot new artists in Doorly’s Sampler include El Provost, Colour Castle, Rick Wade, Olivia Dawn, Thackson, Josh Newsham, SEVADER, and Mike Woods. In addition to the curation, Doorly himself adds some beats to the collection as well.

Jai Wolf Drops Out Of Ultra Due To “Unforeseen Logistical Issues”

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 15:55

Ultra is officially open and the stages are playing, but not all that glitters is gold. An hour ago, Jai Wolf revealed that he’s been forced to pull out of the festival due to “unforeseen logistical issues.” It’s unclear if these issues have to do with his stage or something else entirely, but that’s the long and short of it.

Jai Wolf was scheduled to play at UMF Radio for the Foreign Family Collective takeover tonight at 11:15 PM.

This makes the second cancellation for the festival, whether for health or other reasons. Eric Prydz was forced to withdraw from all Miami appearances earlier this week due to health concerns.

In addition, the main stage went dark as power completely went out around 3 PM local time as Dzeko was scheduled to take the stage. Power was out for approximately 20 minutes. Not the best start for the festival, overall.

It’s not all bad news, however. Jai Wolf just dropped the last single from his forthcoming album The Cure To Loneliness before it drops in full next week. “Better Apart” featuring Dresage is out now.

Dog Blood Premiere New Song with Ty Dolla $ign In Miami [WATCH]

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 13:55

Skrillex and Boys Noize joined forces for an epic Dog Blood set last night. The Brownies & Lemonade hosted party in Miami also featured 1788-L b2b Blanke, A-Trak b2b Anna Lunoe and more.

One particular ID from the night is a superstar collaboration between Dog Blood and Ty Dolla $ign. And hot damn — does it sound amazing. Ty Dolla’s smooth flow matched with a rhythmic house drop is exactly what we’re living for in 2019.

Brownies & Lemonade was there to capture the moment (obviously, it was their party) — so luckily we can replay this moment over and over again. See another view here.

Dog Blood just put out new music today, their first new single since 2013. There’s no telling if and when this one with Ty Dolla $ign will get an official release, but it sounds like a sure hit.

The Chainsmokers Drop New Album Single “Kills You Slowly”

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 13:52

It’s getting really hard to predict what The Chainsmokers are going to do next, and that’s working entirely in their favor. After putting out a lackluster debut album, they brought it back with Sick Boy, using intelligent lyrics and mixing in a diverse array of pop and EDM. Now, the group is dropping singles from its third album World War Joy and it’s pretty damn pop so far.

The Chainsmokers dropped a new song today called “Kills You Slowly” that plays like a mumble rappers attempt at a ballad, at least as far as rhythm goes. The subtle melody and in-your-face 808 snares in the chorus also help to add to that effect.

Overall, it’s absolutely one of the slowest and most stripped down songs that The Chainsmokers have ever put out. There’s no grand production or crazy effects to mask any shortcomings in the song, and there are a couple. But there’s no way to deny that this group is forging its own path in the pop/EDM crossover sphere and they’re succeeding.

The Chainsmokers will close out Ultra Music Festival this Sunday, March 31, at 12:30 PM EDT. Listen to “Kill You Slowly” below.



The Chainsmokers – Kills You Slowly [Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
Made plans with me and all your friends
I’m late again, I hate to keep you waiting
Tried to be a gentleman, got drunk again before I even made it
Tried to call a car for you, you’re tired of me, I know you wouldn’t take it
You walked a mile in Louis Vuittons and fucked ’em up, you know that they’re my favourite

[Pre-Chorus]
But we dress up and play pretend
Then we act like we’re good again
I do things I can’t defend
And even when you hold it in

[Chorus]
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

[Verse 2]
Arguments that never end, you’re talkin’ shit to spice up conversation
I’m so sick of back and forth, these fights with you are startin’ to feel contagious
Said that I’m no good for you right before we walk into your parents
Then you put on that smile again and grab my hand even though you hate it

[Pre-Chorus]
But we dress up and play pretend
Then we act like we’re good again
I do things I can’t defend
And even when you hold it in

[Chorus]
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

[Post-Chorus]
Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said
You hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t
Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said
You hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t

[Bridge]
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open
And keep on smilin’ until it’s over
Hold it, even though it kills you slowly

[Chorus]
Holdin’ even though it kills you slowly (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Explosions hitting when we’re in the open (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Keep on smilin’ until it’s over (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)
Holdin’ even though it kills you slowly (Oh but, but it it, won’t but, I said, you hold on, hopin’ it gon’ stop, but it don’t)

Mielo Releases Debut EP “Anywhere But Here”

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 13:10

Starting a music career at any age is a daunting task, but 23-year-old Mielo is channeling his fears and insecurities into melodies and passion on his debut EP, Anywhere But Here, out today.

Spanning three beautiful tracks, and a wonderful intro, the EP isn’t shy in its use of lush soundscapes and delicate synths. Vocal accompaniments from Sarah De Warren, Cailee Rae, and Tori Letzler only add to the wonderment behind each and every track.

“ ‘Anywhere But Here’ is a compilation of songs going over the vast feelings and situations a young up and coming artist experiences before they ‘make it.’ When I started the EP writing process, I had just gotten through some tough times of depression, self-doubt and wondering if I could even make music and be successful doing it. I was lost about who I was as a person and as an artist, so I decided to make some very important changes that to this day have been the best thing I ever did.” – Mielo

The EP never really strays from its central sound, a sort of noticeable melancholy. However, the final song and the title track of the EP, “Anywhere But Here,” takes a stark turn and finishes off the project on a hopeful note. It’s clear from the EP itself and from Mielo’s brisk honesty that this is a good thing for him.

Listen to Anywhere But Here bellow.

WATCH THE 2019 ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL LIVE STREAM [DAY 1]

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 12:41

Ultra Music Festival finally begins today, after months of waiting and lots of press surrounding the festival and its new home on Virginia Key. What happens this weekend remains to be seen in terms of logistics and attendee satisfaction, but, as always, the lineup is one thing fans never, ever have to worry about with this festival.

The UMF.TV live stream will be going all day today as per usual; however, with the new, expanded times of the festival, it will be starting two hours later and ending three hours later. This means that those of us on the west coast will be glued to our TVs and monitors until 11 PM PDT rather than the usual 8 PM.

An Opening Ceremony will kick off the live stream today at 5:00 PM EDT, followed by an assortment of DJs including SOPHIE, Tom Morello, Louis The Child, Tiesto, Alesso, Dog Blood, and Marshmello.

We don’t recommend missing any of these, because who knows who any of these artists might bring out! Marshmello especially…

Who you won’t see on the stream

If you’re trying to see every single artist on the live stream today, sorry to disappoint. There’s only so much real estate and some acts aren’t making it. Apart from Dog Blood, none of the Ultra Worldwide acts will make it on the stream. None of the artists at UMF Radio will be on the stream, either. SOPHIE, Tom Morello, and Louis The Child will pop in for 20 minutes each, but the majority of the stream is squarely focused on the main stage this year.

Art Department and Carl Cox are the only artists from Resistance that will make it on the main stream, though each will only be on for 10 minutes. (Resistance has its own separate stream here.) Given Ultra’s track record with such short live stream sets, it’s doubtful we’ll really even get to see any of them.

Watch the whole live stream from Day 1 below!

Dog Blood (Skrillex x Boys Noize) Drop First New Music Since 2013

Fri, 03/29/2019 - 12:33

It’s been six years since Skrillex and Boys Noize released music together as Dog Blood. They’re finally back with an energetic new single that’s perfect in every possible way.

The duo spawned two EPs over 2012 and 2013, with tracks including “Next Order,” “Middle Finger,” and the especially savage “Shred Or Die.” Their new one, “Turn Off The Lights,” feels lighter at surface level, but it remains true to what we’ve come to expect of the Dog Blood project.

A classic rave-worthy build, mad drum rhythms, and catchy vocal chops make the new Dog Blood single easily digestible for the average ear — but just wait for that heavy, stuttered breakdown at 2:52. It’s fleeting for sure, but just enough to give Dog Blood diehards exactly what they want.

The duo recently played Buku Music + Arts Festival together, uniting as Dog Blood. See the footage from their high-octane performance here. They played last night at the Brownies & Lemonade show in Miami, and they’ll play again tonight at Ultra Music Festival on the WorldWide stage at 11:30 PM EDT.

“Turn Off The Lights” is out now via OWSLA / Boysnoize Records.

Your EDM Premiere: Droptek Finally Dropping New LP ‘Symbiosis’ and Yes, It Was Worth the Wait [Korsakov]

Thu, 03/28/2019 - 22:17

It really can’t be understated the influence Droptek has had on drum and bass and even bass music as a whole over the last seven years or so but somehow it kind of does get understated. This is possibly because Droptek himself is a pretty private and humble guy and maybe doesn’t even know his own skill, which is easily on par with other reclusive greats like Current Value and Misanthrop. He also likes to take large breaks, of which the past year or so has been one. With the exception of a track on Korsakov’s compilation album last year, Droptek hasn’t released since his Fracments EP with Monstercat. All of that’s about to change.

It’s a very good thing, it seems, that Droptek hooked up with Korsakov to release his track “OK” on last year’s The Kosrakov Compilations vol. 1 because it precipitated the Symbiosis LP into being. Due out April 9, it will be yet another game-changer from Droptek. Korsakov knows it, Your EDM know it, and now the bass music community at large are about to feel it.

Symbiosis opens with a short intro track “The Expanse” which is meant to immerse the listener to all the mad synth sounds, mods and distortions that are to come on this LP. From there it launches into pure bass music perfection. We say bass music because it’s not all DnB; this is a true crossover album with halftime, DnB, dubstep and even some subtle riddim all present and accounted for. It’s heavy, hard and synthy right the way through but with lots of variance and even some really beautiful melodies.

One such beautiful melody is contained within our premiere for today, “Extrapolate.” This short song has a clean, basic DnB beat with equally clean snares but the melodic work on the synths is really what makes this track a heart-stomper as well as a chin-scratcher. The main melody sees something standard in DnB elevated to sublime levels: a beautiful melody composed with crunchy, metallic-sounding neuro-tinged synths will created an emotion in the listener they didn’t even know existed. We all know that synth; it’s usually done in low registers in neuro and hard/techy tracks to get those jaws clenching and aggressive skanks happening on the dancefloor but what happens when they’re pitched up and used to make something more musical? Droptek’s managed to “Extrapolate” the answer, and it’s breathtaking.

Something that’s always really striking with Droptek’s work – and it’s why he does have such influence over DnB sound whenever he drops a release – is the razor sharp and squeaky clean sound design and engineering in every track. In the face of so much distortion, crunchy synths and brain-scrambling phrase transitions, the quality of every bit of a track is always spot on. Nothing is left hanging or, to say it another way, it seems like no piece of his work was sacrificed for the sake of another piece. All the parts of each song work in perfect Symbiosis.

Symbiosis is a must, must, must cop and is due out on Korsakov April 9th. Pre-order link here.

Skrillex, Boys Noize & What So Not Went B2B Last Night For Around 50 People

Thu, 03/28/2019 - 21:58

Miami Music Week is in full swing and there’s so many parties to hit up that it’s almost a problem. Somewhere, last night, in a darkened club — Boys Noize, Craze, Wax Motif, What So Not and Skrillex went back to back.

Before you catch too much fomo, just know there’s some footage out there. Unfortunately, the best and only video we’ve seen is only 8 seconds long. At the same time, it’s all the proof we need that this happened and it was glorious.

Skrillex and What So Not have collaborated on tracks “Goh” and “Waiting” and whenever they work together it’s all ears and eyes on them.

According to the source, they threw down a lot of music from The Prodigy and it was a mood. Just watch.

Sources say they all went back to back in a small, random bar in Miami for a crowd of maybe 50 people. Talk about an exclusive set…

P.S. Check back here tomorrow to hear that new new from Skrillex and Boys Noize aka Dog Blood.

Pink has come down with the EDM bug. The pop star just shared the track list for her upcoming album Hurts 2B Human, and a collaboration with Cash Cash caught our attention immediately.

Pink is all over the map with her forthcoming release. A collaboration with Chris Stapleton tells us she also has the country bug. Wrabel and Khalid are also listed as features on the album.

Hurts 2B Human drops April 26th via RCA Records.

Thu, 03/28/2019 - 20:26

It’s been six years since the cell-shaded, open world, massively multiplayer online RPG game Borderlands 2 was released, and game developer Gearbox just dropped the first official trailer for its rightful sequel, Borderlands 3.

The second numbered game in the series spawned a variety of additional content, including “expansionsspinoff gamesa VR portan adventure game, and compilations,” as summarized by Polygon. However, this new game promises to be a massive leap forward in the game’s anthology, as much as Polygon writer Ben Kuchera disagrees.

Better yet, watching the trailer offers up a bit of nuance in the music accompanying it. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Griz’s song “Can’t Hold Me Down” featuring Tash Neal.



Video games and other brands are no strangers to using EDM tracks for their ads, but it’s still always nice to hear a recognizable track when it happens.

Gearbox promises more Borderlands 3 news on April 3, so if the trailer below doesn’t appease you — or Mr. Kuchera — there’s still more to look forward to.
