Diplo’s Supergroup LSD Drops Friendship Anthem “No New Friends” [LISTEN]

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 19:53

Diplo‘s supergroup with Sia and Labrinth — known collectively as LSD — is at it again with a new single “No New Friends.”

The song is all about celebrating the friendships we have. The ones who have been there through the thick and thin. Maybe it’s about your childhood relationships, your friends from school, or your festival buddies that you keep up with the most.

Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo transformed their powerful friendship into a dynamic, hit-making machine. With each release, they provide a beautifully crafted, carefree soundtrack. The LSD sound is an instant pick-me-up and this new single is a bouncy, bright addition.

This one goes out to all the friend groups out there keeping it real! Listen to “No New Friends” here and hear even more from LSD below. And keep an eye out for their debut album, out April 12.

LSD – No New Friends

GRiZ Drops Inspiring New Collab with Wiz Khalifa “Find My Own Way” [LISTEN]

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 19:48

GRiZ has a certain kind of way of letting us know that everything’s going to be okay. His latest feel-good single from forthcoming album Ride Waves taps into funk-filled dreams and calls on rapper Wiz Khalifa to tell it like it is.

“Find My Own Way” rocks just the right recipe for chilling out, but the message will lift you off your feet. The song sets up an atmosphere fit for the GRiZ Live Band, with layers of instruments and vocals, leaving enough space for his signature sax. Five tracks in and Ride Waves is shaping up to be one of GRiZ’s greatest impressions yet.

Wiz Khalifa speaks on the release in his own words: “The first time I heard the beat for ‘Find My Own Way,’ I knew there was something special there since the beat alone feels good. I just had to sit with it and smoke a little KK and figure out my approach and I think it came out exactly how it should.”

GRiZ and Wiz aren’t in this alone, the Harlem Gospel Choir busts out even more inspiration and flavor, making for a grand slam production.

This song will get you through today — and every day you put it on. Listen and enjoy!

Flume Unleashes Documentary Series ‘When Everything Was New’ [WATCH]

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 18:57

Flume is taking it back to When Everything Was New, with a brand new (sort of), 4-part documentary series… The two-part documentary was published to Apple Music in 2018, but it’s now available for free to anyone on YouTube.

The Grammy award-winning DJ/producer captures his humble beginnings, from making beats in his room to shaping entire tours around his music. It’s crazy to take a look back to when the Flume project started up and see how far he has come as an artist.

The series crams in a lot of milestone moments including his signing to Future Classics, ARIA award wins, and creating his own live show. His parents, collaborators, and friends share some of their favorite Flume moments. Of course, he has plenty to open up about as well.

Flume’s documentary is broken down into four different snapshots, but amounts to approximately 45 minutes of behind-the-scenes content. Not only does it have an amazing soundtrack and great information, it’s beautifully shot and arranged.

When Everything Was New is available to watch on YouTube now — so what are you waiting for? Dive in right here!

[PREMIERE] Identical Twins MZG Drop “Anaphase” On New EP

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 17:26

Rarely do I see a concept project so fleshed out as MZG, short for “monozygotic,” made up of identical twins Zach and Charles Weinert. Their new EP called Cell Division is another clear example of a theme made real, especially when you consider the track titles therein are all named after actual phases of cell division.

Near to the end is “Anaphase,” the blistering retro/future trap tune representing the fourth out of five phases of cell division. Beginning with a series of claps and a basic melody, the lead synth grows in intensity until the drop when it’s all unleashed. The sort of LoFi drop makes for a very retro sounding atmosphere while the drums still keep it geared toward more modern tempos. The result is a strange amalgam of sounds, not unlike… anaphase cell division.

The full Cell Division EP can be found here — check it out!

Illenium Adds Third Red Rocks Show After First Two Sell Out In Minutes

It’s no surprise that Illenium’s back to back Red Rocks nights in October sold out within minutes — a Denver show for Illenium at one of the most beautiful venues on Earth? Yeah, totally saw it coming.

Apple Responds To Spotify Anti-trust Lawsuit & “Time To Play Fair” Campaign

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 15:53

Earlier this week, Spotify announced that it had filed an antitrust complaint against Apple with the European Union, “alleging that the iPhone maker is harming consumer choice and stifling innovation via the rules it enforces on the App Store,” summarizes Verge.

As outlined in a blog post from Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek, the company seemed to take particular issue with a 30 percent “tax” that the App Store levies against app creators. Spotify launched the following video as part of a press campaign to bring awareness to the injustices it claims Apple is perpetrating.

In response to these claims and the lawsuit, Apple released an official statement this morning refuting and taking issue with much of what Spotify claims. It begins:

At its core, the App Store is a safe, secure platform where users can have faith in the apps they discover and the transactions they make. And developers, from first-time engineers to larger companies, can rest assured that everyone is playing by the same set of rules. […]

What Spotify is demanding is something very different. After using the App Store for years to dramatically grow their business, Spotify seeks to keep all the benefits of the App Store ecosystem — including the substantial revenue that they draw from the App Store’s customers — without making any contributions to that marketplace. At the same time, they distribute the music you love while making ever-smaller contributions to the artists, musicians and songwriters who create it — even going so far as to take these creators to court.

Apple’s response takes a very surprised and hurt tone for the majority of the text. The general idea is that Apple doesn’t know where all these allegations from Spotify are originating. In response to many of the technological claims, Apple says they’ve worked with Spotify every step of the way, offering their services and reaching out with development help whenever possible.

“We found Spotify’s claims about Apple Watch especially surprising,” it reads at one point. “When Spotify submitted their Apple Watch app in September 2018, we reviewed and approved it with the same process and speed with which we would any other app. In fact, the Spotify Watch app is currently the No. 1 app in the Watch Music category.”

With regards to the 30 percent “tax” that Spotify so heavily leans on in their press, Apple says that 84 percent of the apps in the App Store “pay nothing to Apple when you download or use the app.”

“The only contribution that Apple requires is for digital goods and services that are purchased inside the app using our secure in-app purchase system,” it continues. “As Spotify points out, that revenue share is 30 percent for the first year of an annual subscription — but they left out that it drops to 15 percent in the years after.”

Apple accuses Spotify of using rhetoric to appear magnanimous in the public eye while going behind content creators’ backs in their own self interest. Examples include Spotify’s recent appeal to the U.S. Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) decision last year to increase payout rates to songwriters by 44% over the next five years, an action which has been popularly (and “dubiously,” as Verge puts it) referred to as “suing music creators.”

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 15:31

Since debuting their unique brand of heavy bass music in the LA scene, A Boy & A Girl have been tearing it up with releases on Spinnin, Mad Decent, and Panda Funk. They now bring their latest work, “Blast ‘Em”, to Super 7 Records, spearheaded by label boss, Jayceeoh. Opening with a dark melodic vibe, “Blast ‘Em” soon evolves into a bone shattering array of aggressive synths and basses. Seeing the progression of A Boy & A Girl creating stellar content that continuously pushes the boundaries of bass music is a much needed breath of fresh air to the ears.

Correction: Ghastly Is Not Retiring Current Alias, Will Create New One For “Pretty Music”

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 15:03

Yesterday, I wrote an article titled “Ghastly Will Retire His Current Alias After Next EP To Focus On House Music” based on a tweet that Ghastly posted. The tweet read:

U guys I’m gonna drop this halftime bass ep but after that I will be focusing entirely on house music

I’m still going to be making pretty music, but it won’t be under ghastly

At first glance, I interpreted this to mean that he was retiring his Ghastly alias and starting a new one. Unfortunately, that interpretation was wrong. Rather than reach out to Ghastly or his team, I made a knee-jerk judgement and sent the post out on social media.

Today, Ghastly responded, “Big ol misinterpretation here – I’m not retiring Ghastly I’m starting another project.”

After reaching out directly to Ghastly today, he clarified that the Ghastly alias is going back to his house roots, and he’s creating a new alias for the aforementioned “pretty music.”

While I deeply regret not reaching out to Ghastly directly for greater clarification, and sit here today with egg on my face, I still stand by my final sentence in yesterday’s article: “Whatever Ghastly does next, we’re here for it and wish him all the best.”

Your EDM Premiere: Showtek – Listen To Your Momma Feat. Leon Sherman

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 14:01

Showtek has been all about the important women in our lives lately. The powerhouse Dutch production/DJ duo dropped the highly unexpected track “Momma” last month, a tribute to women and mothers all over the world. While the positive message of the song is right in line with Showtek’s previous productions, the track itself was a blues-folk track that was totally out of left field, but still a wonderful song. Now the Janssen brothers are back with the dance edit of the track, “Listen to Your Momma.” This time they team up with Dutch singer-songwriter Leon Sherman for the vocal.

“Listen to Your Momma” is a highly welcome return to Showtek’s more traditional big room sound, replete with Dutch horns and a nice piano-house riff backing up the vocals. Leon Sherman’s bluesy wail really makes you feel some kind of way as he sings “Momma tried to raise me right, but I came out wrong.” If you feel like you’re at a festival once the drop hits, you’re right, as this song has actually been in Showtek’s sets fairly recently. Fans will get that extra jolt of energy upon recognizing that signature Showtek sound that mixes Dutch house with a tropical party vibe.

The Janssen brothers did write the song on Mother’s Day and to celebrate the release of the track, they’re doing something very special. If you purchase a ticket to their show at Exchange LA on March 16, you can bring your mom for free. Your mom put in a lot of work raising you, might as well treat her to a fantastic show from one of dance music’s premiere artists.

Check out “Listen to Your Momma” featuring Leon Sherman out now on Skink Records.

SHAQ Dishes on Miami Music Week’s Best Event – Shaq’s Fun House

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 13:32

Shaq’s Fun House has only ever happened twice before, and already it’s one of the most-talked about events of Miami Music Week as it prepares to make its third appearance. Last year, Shaq, aka DJ Diesel, called upon Diplo, Steve Aoki, A-Trak, Carnage, Nervo, Alan Walker, and Cheat Codes to bring the noise, and this year will feature an even bigger array of artists according to Shaq himself.

Your EDM caught up with Shaq ahead of the festivities, two weeks from tomorrow, March 29. We were desperate to know more about his background as a DJ and what made him think of Shaq’s Fun House in the first place. We also wanted to know, with all of the crazy things the Fun House already has, what didn’t make it in… the answer is amazing.

Check out our interview with Shaq below, and remember, a very limited number of All-Inclusive Open Bar Tickets are now on sale from $149 at www.ShaqsFunHouse.com.

Everyone knows you as Shaq, the basketball player. But you’ve mentioned in interviews before that you have been DJing since you were 14. What was your first introduction to electronic music and how did you start spinning?

I used to cut neighbors’ grass, walk dogs, and scrap together cash to buy records and my turntables at a pawn shop. I have been hooked on music ever since I was a young kid, but back then I was all about Rap. TomorrowWorld 2014 was a milestone event that changed my perspective on music forever. It was on a massive farm and I came over a huge hill then boom 100,000 happy people going crazy having the time of their lives. I saw Skrillex and Steve Aoki and I was like what is this music… I just loved the energy! I met my manager Joe at TomorrowWorld and I begged him for a slot the next year. That is how DJ Diesel was born and I have not looked back since.

What prompted you to start Shaq’s Fun House?

This is not a nightclub or some huge festival. My Fun House brings together the best DJ’s in the world with carnival elements, circus performers, an open bar, amazing food and much more. Honestly I was getting bored of the same clubs & festivals over and over at music week…I wanted to create my own event totally different that is just all about FUN. Last year I called up Diplo and said I need you Wes…Steve Aoki…Diesel needs your energy…Carnage…bring the heat!! It was crazy everyone just ended up playing back to back all night till sunrise. This year I partnered with JBL to make the Fun House even bigger. I promise you this will be the best lineup yet featuring 8 of the best DJ’s in the world. Get your tickets soon folks this thing is sure to sell out!

What’s been your favorite show you’ve played so far?

To me DJ’ing in front of a huge crowd brings is like a game 7. I’ve done many amazing shows but Lost Lands and Tomorrowland have to be my 2 favorites. I practice a lot before each set and really get competitive out there..my goal is always to ignite more head bangers than any other artist out there.

Now that you’re putting out original music, like your new track with NGHTMRE & Lil Jon, can we expect more in 2019?

NGHTMRE is my Larry Bird of EDM and Lil Jon is a longtime friend. BANG was a ton of Fun to work on and we got tons more in the works! I’ll have some remixes and solo originals out soon but there are a lot more DIESEL coming in 2019. There’s a ton of shows to still release too… I just announced a show with Dillon Francis at Red Rocks, I have a big Vegas announcement coming soon, and I am really looking forward to Tomorrowland & Ibiza this summer.

What were some of the original ideas for Shaq’s Fun House that didn’t make the cut?

So I own 2 white tigers. I have a guy in Vegas that looks after them for me and he treats them real well. I thought it may be cool to bring them to Miami, but my team advised against it for safety reasons. What do you guys think should I bring em? The car ride for them would be really long or can we put them on a plane?

What was it like to have your Fun House in Atlanta for the Super Bowl?

I am an ATL native and live here now so when Super Bowl 2019 was in Atlanta I called up my managers and told them Shaq’s Fun House.. Super Bowl.. Atlanta… let’s make it legendary and we did. I recruited my boys Diplo, Tiesto, Migos, Lil Jon, T-Pain and we threw one hell of a party. Beyond the music we had Cirque Du Soleil, Waffle House, STK Steakhouse, the JBL crate, and tons more amazing attractions.

How do you see the Fun House brand growing in 2 years? 5 years?

We’re going international baby! They’re way too many amazing sports and music combo opportunities overseas and you know the DIESEL is going to make it happen. I’ve been blessed to see the world, play for Team USA, destroy mainstages in other countries and the Fun House is going to be everywhere.

A very limited number of All-Inclusive Open Bar Tickets are now on sale from $149 at ShaqsFunHouse.com.

[PREMIERE] Sultan + Shepard Drop New Sultry Single “Deeper” With Carla Monroe on Armada Music

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 13:24

Play me something that lets me sing along and swing my hips, and you have my undying love. “Deeper” from Sultan + Shepard, featuring Carla Monroe, out today on Armada Music, is that “something.”

Monroe is undoubtedly the star on this track, her voice gliding softly atop the groovy house beats. However, there of course wouldn’t be a track to speak of without the production skills of S+S, who blend an upbeat house rhythm with melody piano chords. The result is an unspeakably cheerful tune that I could listen to on repeat.

Check out “Deeper” from Sultan + Shepard below, out now on Armada Music.

REPORT: Coachella Radius Clause Lawsuit Dismissed

Fri, 03/15/2019 - 13:06

Just weeks ahead of the 2019 installment of Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, a lawsuit against the iconic event has been dismissed.

According to a report, Oregon-based promotion company Soul’d Out Productions claimed Coachella’s restrictive radius clause was in violation of anti-trust law. Specifically, the part that has forbidden artists from playing any other North American festivals between December 15 through May 1.

Soul’d Out said artists including SZA and Daniel Caesar were forced to turn down opportunities with their company because of Coachella’s radius clause. Now, the judge in the case has totally dismissed those allegations along with the entire lawsuit. It was ultimately determined no anti-trust violation was made by Goldenvoice.

Coachella organizers said back in 2018 they would “vigorously defend against this lawsuit, which calls into question a long-standing industry practice that is crucial to our ability to continue offering fans the unrivaled experience for which Coachella has become known.”

Twitter Introduces New In-App Camera Feature For Instant Capture

Thu, 03/14/2019 - 22:19

See it? Tweet it! Twitter‘s in-app camera is just a swipe away.

The social media platform has introduced a new way to communicate over the platform with its latest feature. Now, it’s just as easy to pull up Twitter and take a video as it has been on Snapchat, Instagram, and other apps for some time.

This move is widely seen as an effort to directly compete with Facebook and Instagram’s in-app camera feature — and yeah, it pretty much is. However, with Twitter being one of the biggest sources for instantaneous information, this seems like a no-brainer. It’s about time.

The only thing that’s noticeably missing is an “edit” button, which other apps have capitalized on. Again, this is meant to be quick and instinctive. Perhaps an “edit” button will come with time, but this will get the job done.

Users can expect roll out over the next few days.

Here’s how to capture what’s happening via Twitter…

Twitter’s New Camera Feature

See it? Tweet it! Our updated camera is just a swipe away, so you get the shot fast. Rolling out to all of you over the next few days. pic.twitter.com/moOEFO2nQq

Elton John pays tribute to The Prodigy’s Keith Flint: “They are one of the most original groups to come out of England ever”

Thu, 03/14/2019 - 20:23

The Prodigy’s Keith Flint died ten days ago, and the response from the music community has been nothing short of monumental. Flint’s and The Prodigy’s legacy in music is well documented, and his death is but another reminder of the need to take care of one’s mental health.

Among those who have paid him tribute already is Elton John, who did so on his Apple Beats 1 program Rocket Hour.

“Opening the show with [‘Firestarter’] to pay tribute to Keith Flint, who passed away. What a shame. What a seminal record, what a seminal group they are or were. I don’t know if they’ll continue, but when I first heard that and saw the video I just thought, ‘wow, what is this?!’ Such a tragedy. My condolences to Keith’s family and the band. They are one of the most original groups to come out of England…ever.”

Elton John’s Rocket Hour airs this Saturday, March 16th at 9am LA/12pm NY/4pm LDN on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Ghastly Will Retire His Current Alias After Next EP To Focus On House Music

Thu, 03/14/2019 - 18:55

They say that everything must come to an end eventually, and it seems that applies to artists, as well. Or, at least, their aliases… David Crow, better known to the world as Ghastly, appears to say in a new tweet that he will be retiring his alias in 2019.

That doesn’t mean that Crow will stop making music entirely — quite the opposite. He says that he’ll be focusing “entirely on house music,” but only after he drops a halftime bass EP soon.

“I’m still going to be making pretty music,” he concludes, “but it won’t be under ghastly.”

Ghastly made his break out in 2014 with his Mija collaboration, “Crank It.”

Whatever Ghastly does next, we’re here for it and wish him all the best.

U guys I’m gonna drop this halftime bass ep but after that I will be focusing entirely on house music

I’m still going to be making pretty music, but it won’t be under ghastly

Stay tuned ????
