Live Nation Seeks To Fill Void At The Gorge After Sasquatch Calls It Quits

Sun, 01/27/2019 - 17:44

Last year marked the end of Sasquatch Music Festival, but now Live Nation is looking to fill that void again at one of the most gorgeous venues in the country — The Gorge.

Live Nation recently announced its forthcoming event, which promises to uphold the expectation for quality music. Though little information is known at this point, we’re sure whatever is happening — it’s about to be amazing.

“Details will follow in the weeks to come, but put it in your calendars: May 24-25-26, 2019 will see a new generation of contemporary artists carry on the tradition at this iconic Northwest institution,” organizers say via press release.

After 17 years, founder Adam Zacks preciously announced Sasquatch would cease to operate. The bittersweet decision came with very little reasoning — but he did say — “17 years is a long time to do anything.”

Live Nation has words of its own for the new venture. The new event is described as, “A tradition embraced by music fans for decades happily moves forward to welcome new audiences and artists to this magical venue where moments and memories will continue to be created and shared for years to come.”

Through the years, Sasquatch has brought together the worlds of indie rock, hip hop, electronica and more. We look forward to hearing the next chapter. Source: MyNorthwest | Photo via Sasquatch

Getter Forced To Delete All His Vlogs To Avoid Copyright Strikes On YouTube

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 14:52

Anyone even remotely involved in the YouTube creator community knows that the platform’s copyright system needs a major overhaul. Not only are false copyright claims rampant, it’s nearly impossible to resolve them thanks to YouTube’s current policies (e.g., a creator must reach out to a claimant to request the claim be removed; it’s then pretty much up to their sole discretion to do so or not).

Just like copyright strikes on SoundCloud have affected a number of producers in the past, so too does YouTube’s copyright system. Getter just shared on Twitter yesterday that he has to delete all of his vlogs because they’re all getting claimed.

“[L]iterally getting copyright strikes on every video where I’m at a festival and music is being played by someone in the background,” he writes.

Getter’s YouTube now features far fewer videos than it did just days ago, and the world is a less funny place because of it. Get your sh*t together, YouTube.

i gotta delete all my vlogs cuz they all are getting copyright strikes and i don’t wanna lose my youtube. sorry

— ???????????????????????? (@GetterOfficial) January 26, 2019

literally getting copyright strikes on every video where im at a festival and music is being played by someone in the background.

— ???????????????????????? (@GetterOfficial) January 26, 2019

i love doing vlogs and videos n shit but youtube is really making it hard and if i get one more copyright strike my shits gone ????

Nicky Romero Teams Up With Olivia Holt On Sweet Dance-Pop Crossover “Distance”

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 14:51

Nicky Romero has unleashed his first single of the year — an incredibly heartfelt and refreshing new collaboration featuring actress/singer Olivia Holt.

These artists are an organic sounding match with “Distance,” a song that dances with the pains of emotional separation. Not only is this dance-pop crossover an excellent listen, it has major radio appeal.

Previously known her work in Disney and Marvel productions, Olivia takes on a brave new role. Her voice has some power to it, but also some much needed vulnerability that makes this new collaboration feel relatable and real.

“I’m really proud of this collaboration with Olivia Holt,” Romero revealed to Billboard Dance. “She has an incredible voice and has been so supportive throughout the entire creative process. The emotion in ‘Distance’ really connected with me from the first time I heard the demo. I know the fans will be able to connect in their own way, which is what inspires me in the first place.”

Listen and get acquainted with the lyrics right here!

Diplo Announces ‘Europa’ EP & Drops New Collab To Set The Mood [LISTEN]

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 14:50

Diplo wowed us with his California EP and now he’s gearing up to take us on another journey. The producer has revealed his next body of work, titled Europa EP — and this new single is our first listen!

Mad Decent‘s fearless leader, Diplo is a master of collaborations. Running with the same theme from the California EP, “Boom Bye Bye” is assisted by an exciting lyrical performance from Niska. Rocking a distinct Diplo beat and quality vocals, that’s all the hook “Boom Bye Bye” really needs.

Last time around, Diplo featured Lil Yachty & SantigoldDesiignerDRAM, Trippie ReddLil Xan and & GoldLink. There’s no telling the kind of talent he’s enlisted for this forthcoming EP, but bet on plenty more collabs in store.

No word on release date, but per press release it’s “out soon.”

Listen here!

Rusko Reveals Bassnectar Collaboration In The Works

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 14:28

Rusko just put out “Squeeze (Burnin),” the debut single for his forthcoming EP on Deadbeats. It’s a slow dubstep jam that doesn’t ever get too crazy, but still has that signature Rusko flair we know and love. In promoting the single, he spoke with Billboard and revealed an awful lot of interesting information.

Arguably the biggest reveal of the interview is that there is a Rusko and Bassnectar collaboration on the way.

“There are a few collaborations in the works,” writes Billboard, “one with Bassnectar he says ‘has been a long time coming,’ as well as a series of new happy hardcore tunes with Ducky.”

The Ducky collaborations don’t come as a surprise, as the two have been sharing photos and videos of each other in the studio recently. But the Bassnectar collaboration is a total shock. The two are ostensibly some of the grandest forefathers in bass music history, yet have never once worked together in the studio.

Rusko tells Billboard he’s been trying to put the “‘dub’ back into dubstep,” and a new collab with Bassnectar would certainly go a long way into making that a reality. In the meantime, check out “Squeeze (Burnin)” below, and also look out for a new mix on Deadbeats Radio, Thursday, February 7, for all new music.

Police Issue Warning For Dangerous “Flakka” Pills Sold As MDMA

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 14:14

Police are warning about dangerous homemade pills, marketed as MDMA or ecstasy, that have circulated the Greater Manchester area. According to a report, two people have fallen critically ill from the pills, and one other is in a coma.

These UPS-shaped pills are particularly dangerous because of the “extremely high dose” of a hallucinogenic stimulant, alpha-PVP. The substance has been linked to multiple deaths.

Alpha-PVP, aka flakka, is known to increase blood pressure, heart rate, and cause agitation, hallucination, and even delirium. The warning describes users experiencing “psychosis, distress and severe paranoia.” Alpha-PVP can be fatal, especially when mixed with other drugs.

That’s not all — the substance has potential to cause extremely erratic behavior. Like, “sex with trees” erratic, though we’re sure those stories have been particularly blown out of proportion.

Police describe the pills to be “badly made” and “crumbly.” The homemade pressies are beige in color and are poorly stamped with a UPS logo. They are also described to smell like vomit. Hopefully that’s enough in itself to keep others from taking this drug.

See below.

REPORT: Next Swedish House Mafia Tour Date Discovered In Leaked Line Of Code

Sat, 01/26/2019 - 13:14

It’s been almost two months since Swedish House Mafia revealed their last new tour date, Finland’s Weekend Festival in July. With a little over three months still to go until the tour even starts, we’re curious what the group is up to — probably in the studio, right?

Though everything is relatively quiet on the home front, the internet holds many secrets. Some more dedicated fans discovered, in looking at the source code on SHM’s website, that there’s another tour date still yet to be revealed.

Switzerland’s Zürich Openair festival is listed, with a specific date of August 22. The festival has yet to reveal a lineup, but early bird tickets are already sold out.

The current countdown timer on the site ends the day before the group’s first Stockholm show, so it’s unclear when the Zürich show will be officially announced. Take a look at the festival aftermovie below to get an idea what it’s all about.

Tiësto Remixes Niels van Gogh’s Classic Dance Anthem “Pulverturm” to Perfection [MUST LISTEN]

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 20:17

Tiësto provides an enthralling big room remix of Niels van Gogh‘s classic dance anthem “Pulverturm” with his latest release, out now.

Tiësto’s remix of “Pulverturm” finds the perfect balance between the original and the 2.0 version. The OG track came out back in 1998 and it was revived in 2007. Now, it’s making waves yet again with this new remix from one of the best in the game.

Tiësto delicately rearranges the production whilst upholding the integrity of the masterpiece by Niels van Gogh. He goes for big room appeal, but keeps the vibe light and dancey. The remix is surely a blast from the past, packing in the nostalgia with a clean, modern finish.

Our only complaint: Tiësto’s take on “Pulverturm” runs a little short. We would love to hear this as a 6 or 7-minute journey, instead of just 3 minutes. As the song ends, we’re left wanting more — but that’s what the repeat button is for.

Listen and compare below.

WATCH: New, Unofficial Documentary On EDC 2010 & Rave Culture

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 20:16

The dance music community looked a lot different even just nine years ago. Ecstasy was public enemy number one, the R.A.V.E. Act hadn’t yet been passed, and EDC was still in Los Angeles. The new documentary The Last Dance from Le Liu, coordinator, recruiter, and trainer for the S.F. Bay Area chapter of DanceSafe.

The 100-minute independent film began as a video blog series for the harm reduction organization, but eventually grew and turned into a retrospective and analysis of dance music culture throughout the years that you can see below. Brief interviews with ravers past and present, as well as news footage and promotional materials from DanceSafe, give a pretty good overview of what it was like to rave nearly a decade ago.

If you’ve ever wondered about kandi culture, the demonization of MDMA, and the contribution of dance music to the zeitgeist of growing youth, this is as good a place to start as any.

Your EDM Premiere: Popsikl & Slimez – Instagram DJ

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 17:49

Popsikl and Slimez are two of the biggest class clowns in dubstep, and they’ve finally teamed up for a powerful and comedic new single that feels like we’re back in 2013 with a side of clout. “Instagram DJ” is all tongue in cheek, but the bite more than matches the song’s bark.

Influencers are unavoidable on social media these days, especially if you use Instagram at all during the day. Don’t get me wrong, there are legitimate influencers and… illegitimate ones, but “Instagram DJ” doesn’t take it that seriously.

The track has a great melody with a hearty helping of filth, all wrapped up with a humorous bow. Check out “Instagram DJ” from Popsikl and Slimez below!

REPORT: Facebook Merging Multiple Apps For Powerful Messaging System

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 16:10

Facebook is reportedly planning a big merger between its main messaging platform, Messenger, and auxiliary properties WhatsApp and Instagram.

Facebook has been adamant about social media domination — and this sounds like a huge next step for the platform. The goal is to create the “the best messaging experiences” out there for social media users.

A Facebook spokesperson says the joining of apps will provide a “fast, simple, reliable, and private” way to communicate. However, experts have warned that such a merger could greatly affect privacy. For example, WhatsApp does not currently require users to provide a name or any identifying information. That all could easily change with a Facebook merger.

“We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks,” Facebook’s spokesperson assures.

“As you would expect, there is a lot of discussion and debate as we begin the long process of figuring out all the details of how this [merger] will work.”

Writes Independent, “The apps will remain distinct from each other, although the underlying messaging infrastucture would be unified, according to people familiar with the matter. ”

For better or worse, the merger is expected to take place by early next year.

Recent DJ Snake Tweet Hints New Album Drop Is Nearing

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 16:08

DJ Snake is asking fans to weigh in on a very important aspect of his forthcoming album…

“How many songs should be on the album?” the DJ writes in a Twitter update.

Of course, this is probably more about hype than anything else. With people spewing out unrealistic numbers like 420, 69, and 1,000,000 — we’re gonna go ahead and guess DJ Snake and his team will get the tracklisting figured out for themselves.

Back in November, he let us know he was putting the finishing touches on his album. “I apologize to my friends and family for being so distant and ignoring your messages/calls but I need to finish this album,” he wrote.

DJ Snake’s new album is expected sometime in 2019 and the tweet below hints at sooner than later.

So, the question is…

How many songs should be on the album?

deadmau5 Delivers Suspenseful, Diverse Soundtrack For ‘Polar’ Film [LISTEN]

Fri, 01/25/2019 - 16:05

Today, Polar hits Netflix and we finally get to hear the score deadmau5 has been working so hard on. It’s been a long time coming, as the producer expressed interest in soundtracking a film long before Polar ever fell into his lap.

The entire Polar album just hit the internet and it’s over 40 minutes of glorious deadmau5 creations. From bright and curious arrangements, to more dark and chilling moments, through sweet melodies and anxious plucks — the Polar soundtrack is extremely diverse and suspenseful.

deadmau5 speaks on his gorgeous and gritty film score — “It’s a really busy, colorful movie. I just really wanted to wait for the right thing to come up, as opposed to doing some major motion picture thing … the next big Fast and Furious 23 or whatever they’re on.”

Of course, we recommend watching the film to get the soundtrack’s full effect. But, there’s no harm in giving your ears an early preview. Listen here!
