Earlier today a few eagle-eyed EDC Las Vegas-goers spotted what appears to be a brand new billboard just off the freeway highlighting none other than a confused-looking San Holo. The billboard was pretty succinct and only featured the words “Lost Lately” with a phone number below. Of course, doing what any reasonable people would do, we called the number as soon as we could.
Calling the number took us to a voicemail from San himself where he talked about feeling ‘lost lately’ and how that had inspired him to create a song, aptly titled “Lost Lately” which he would release on June 13th before fading into a short preview. There’s also a bitbird logo on the billboard which leads us to believe that the song will be released on San’s own label once again. Unfortunately other details on the song remain scarce for now but what we do know is that June 13th is coincidentally also the date of San’s debut Red Rocks show so that’s something to keep in mind.
Call the number for yourself here: +1 818 593 8499 and if you’re around for EDC be sure to check out his set at Kinetic Field on Sunday evening.

It’s official: the return of Dotcom is near.
He’s been busy dominating the scene as his more widely and wildly popular alias Marshmello. However, Christopher Comstock is ready to bring it back to his roots by reviving his old project. He hasn’t released as Dotcom since 2015, when Marshmello first began.
On May 17 (this Friday) Dotcom returns with a new collaboration, “Gang Shit” featuring Lil Toe. So far, all we have is a visual element — the cover art for the single, shared in the post below.
It’s been three years since we’ve heard any music from the producer as Dotcom. Soon enough we’ll know what Dotcom sounds like in 2019.
“ARE YOU READYYYY,” Dotcom builds the hype of his highly anticipated return.New Dotcom Coming Friday

Rezz continues her musical exploration with a new single, “Dark Age.” The leading track off her forthcoming EP is hypnotic, gritty and distorted. Oh yeah, and dark as ever!
The producer experiments with haunting guitar and a hip hop inspired beat before moving into her signature industrial attack with low, rupturing bass. The sound design is impeccable, as the heavy bass is countered by white noise and subtle, distant screams.
A twinkling melody comes in sounding like a childhood jewelry box, something that a tiny ballerina would dance to — if the ballerina were also an alien. “Dark Age” is more than enough to pique the senses — all the usual ones and others beyond basic human instinct.
Rezz’s Beyond the Senses EP drops in full on July 24. Get ready.Rezz – Dark Age

The nation’s most restrictive anti-abortion laws just passed in Alabama and Georgia — and DJs are speaking out on this issue, as well as women’s rights in general.
Not only is it terrifying that women choosing to abort may be held liable for felony murder, the severe lack of exceptions is startling. In Alabama, exemption in cases of rape and incest has failed to pass.
Under the new law, absolutely no abortion may take place after 20 weeks, unless the woman’s health is at risk. Abortion is punishable up to 99 years, or life in prison.
Many view this as a direct attack on women’s rights and personal freedom. It’s devastating to see these states taking a huge step back from progression.
See some of the arguments from the EDM community below.
Hey ALL MEN, right now is a prime time to be an ally. This situation in Georgia which will make women who have abortions or even MISCARRY liable for MURDER is insane and terrifying. You should be upset about this. You should be speaking out about this. pic.twitter.com/YwDZQnOXug

Damn right I’m an ally to women. This Georgia abortion bill is all sorts of horrendous. I support women and their right to the control of their own bodies and decisions with full autonomy.
— Bust Down Partiana (@partyfavormusic) May 12, 2019
well all that aside, Georgia women, please be safe. the ACLU says there is still access to safe abortion there and that they will be doing everything they can to fight against that ever changing

Sending love to anyone in Alabama that is effected by this absurdity. Move away if you can. Fuck this dark ages, old men in power controlling women's bodies bullshit! PLEASE FIGHT THIS https://t.co/s6JKQjJdLz

Jaguar Dreams released their debut, self-titled EP late last year, and now they’re back with a series of new remixes for the tracks that are sure to breathe new life into the music.
First up are two remixes of “Behind Those Clothes,” one from LEFTI and another from Dominic Marceux. Collectively, the two remixes put a more club, house-centric feel on the track. The tempo is pumped up, the energy is higher, and there’s more of a reason to get on the floor and let your feet do the talking.
“We have a ton of respect for both LEFTI and Dominic Marceux, and we are honored that they chose to remix our music,” said Jaguar Dreams of the remixes. “We feature lots of electronic elements in our songs, however, it’s amazing to see how these remixes will really allow our ideas to take on a new life in the dance world. We love both of these remixes so much because they both fall in line with the styles that we already listen to, and they remind us of the styles and influences that got us into dance music years ago.”
Listen to the two remixes below, and stay tuned for more coming soon!

It’s been a long wait, but the wait is over: Rick and Morty Season Four is officially confirmed to debut on Adult Swim in November 2019!!
The last episode of Rick and Morty aired October 1, 2017, season 3 episode 10, “The Rickchurian Mortydate.” The last time we saw the Smith family, Beth and Jerry happily reconciled their marriage, and Rick fought the president. There was no real cliff hanger to leave fans on like there had been at the end of Season 2; yet, one is never really necessary for a show like this, fans simply want more.
This morning, Adult Swim posted a short animated clip featuring Rick and Morty telling followers about a big announcement they had to make, the show’s anticipated return date for season four. It will be more than two years since the last episode aired, making it the longest gap between seasons yet. (From end of Season Two to beginning of Season Three was 18 months.)
Fans were hoping for an “accidental” release of season four on April Fool’s this year, like the network had done for season three, but no dice. Still, it’s good to know we have something to look forward to in November.

We’re stoked to announce that Au5 has an album due out for release on May 24th! He has been brewing Divinorum for three years, and the LP will stretch to ten tracks in total. With such a progressive and creative style to electronic production, this is surely going to be a statement listen from the Colorado-based artist.
The first single from the album is ‘Stargate,’ which has been made in collaboration with fan-favorite Tasha Baxter. Hazy melodies and drawn out beats are order of the day, and it’s about to whet fans’ appetites for the rest of the collection.
Explaining the track, Au5 says: “Stargate,’ to me, is about the acknowledgement of our shortcomings, mortality, and flaws. With that acceptance, we realize the boundless potential that awaits once we “let go” of our attachment to ideas that hold us back. In the context of the album, it defines approaching the point where we are able to transform ourselves and break through into the divine realm.”
Listen to ‘Stargate’ here.
You know that saying — you’re never too old. Well David Attenborough is truly young at heart. At the ripe age of 93, he’s tapping into dance music.
Decades ago, Attenborough stumbled upon a Balinese tribe playing music that he’s never been able to get out of his head. He took out his trusty tape recorder and captured the music, which he has held dear all this time. Surprisingly, the sounds of the tribe still ring in crystal clear.
“The villagers play this concerted music with extraordinary precision and real zest,” he explains to BBC. “So it is haunting music that you hear every night — or you did in those days, in the villages of Bali.”
“So these sounds which I captured with that clumsy tape recorder 60 years ago have a quality that you wouldn’t be able to replicate today.”
Now, he wants to bring the same music to younger generations — but he needs the help of a producer. He’s recruiting someone to transform the music he heard into something more suitable for a main stage at Tomorrowland.

Posij, who was discovered by Noisia while he was being their label manager back in 2012. Once his unique halftime talent was unleashed, however, Posij released on Critical, Disciple, Shogun, Hospital, Blackout…the list goes on. Despite have a distinctive sound, Posij is no one-trick pony and his flexibility makes him a commodity for many labels.
The bass music world hasn’t seen a multi-track solo release from the Groningen native since early 2017 with his Attention EP on Neodigital. It’s thus been quite a pleasant surprise to find that Posij has been hoarding his demos to take them back home to Division for his upcoming Cocoon LP. Per the artist himself, “After being a bit silent on the release radar for quite a while, I wanted to come back and showcase my repertoire. Here are ten beats that Noisia chose from my -way too big- demo folder.” Well, these ten beats are way too big themselves, so it’s a good thing Posij decided to wait to release even more.
While most of the tracks on Cocoon are some permutation of halftime, Division asked Your EDM to premiere a funky interlude track called “Pump Pump” which will be a surprise within an already surprising album. Namely, it’s an old school funky breaks track. It’s an interesting choice to see such a track inserted into an album full of what initially seem like dark halftime tracks but if you listen a little closer there is a vein of funk throughout Cocoon. Album opener “Hella Sideways,” and the collab track with Former “Half Monk” both have some serious funk in their intros while many of the other songs have breaks-inspire snares and beat combos throughout. Could Posij be a closet breaks head? If he is, he’s certainly out of the closet, or Cocoon now.
No matter what kind of vibes Posij intended with Cocoon, it’s good to have him back with a new multi-track release and his beats, breaks or not, are certainly as clean as ever. Funk or no funk, there’s a lot of fun surprises on this album and it will be interesting to see what’s next for Posij.

I remember writing about the original “Run & Go” from Dirty Audio featuring Shai Hicari back in February and absolutely loving it. In the time since, I’ve met Moore Kismet in person, and now he just dropped a remix of the tune. Coincidence!? Yeah, probably. But the tune still bangs.
The original definitely packs a wallop. Between Hicari’s sweet vocals and the terribly intense drop, it runs the gamut on vibes. Moore Kismet takes a more unilateral approach to his remix, centering the sound rather than letting it oscillate to quite such extreme poles. His glitchy inclinations permeate the mix, even down to Hicari’s voice which is slightly more digitized in this new version.
That being said, the second drop is definitely more dreamlike than the robot wonderland presented in the first act.

The world has learned a lot from Fyre Festival — namely, how to prevent such an event from happening again and how to spot the warning signs when it seems like an event might be going down that same path. Now that information is coming out about Woodstock 50 during the course of a 2-day hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, concluded today, W50 could have very easily gone that route.
Billboard breaks the discovery down into eight crazy, bite size pieces, but the bulk of the discussion centers around whether investor Dentsu Aegis Network had the authority to unilaterally “cancel” the event by pulling out support.
Woodstock co-founder Michael Lang filed a lawsuit against Denstu, claiming the investor illegally absconded with $17.89 million from a joint account, making it impossible to properly finance the festival. “[…] stop interfering with our efforts to put on this wonderful event, and return the $17 million you improperly took,” Lang wrote in a letter to Dentsu.
But the massive investment arm doesn’t believe Lang has a leg to stand on.
“Woodstock 50 LLC’s and Michael Lang’s misrepresentations, incompetence, and contractual breaches have made it impossible to produce a high-quality event that is safe and secure for concertgoers, artists, and staff,” Dentsu’s attorney Marc L. Greenwald wrote in a memorandum filed on Monday. “The production company has quit, no permits have been issued [hyperlink our own], necessary roadwork has not begun, and there is no prospect for sufficient financing… As much as the parties might wish it otherwise, the festival contemplated by their agreement cannot happen and allowing it to go forward would only put the public at risk.”
As of now, Woodstock 50 is still scheduled for August 16–18 2019 at Watkins Glen, New York, but that could change as soon as within the next day, week, or month. A ruling on the hearing is expected within 24-48 hours.

When it comes to making remixes, Tiësto is a machine! Just a couple days after Avicii‘s new song “Tough Love” dropped, and he was already playing out his own interpretation.
Tiësto played EDC Japan over the weekend — the perfect testing grounds for his remix. We have to say, Tiësto’s version expertly rivals that of the original as he puts his own twist on the song. But, that’s when you get when you’re dealing with two greats such as these.
So far, we’ve heard “SOS” and “Tough Love.” As we patiently await Avicii’s forthcoming album TIM, there’s much more to be experienced off the producer’s posthumous release.
As for Tiësto’s remix, we have to imagine an official drop is coming soon.Avicii – Tough Love (Tiësto Remix)

Pioneer DJ‘s latest entry-level controller is the most affordable option yet! (Note: Pioneer DJ is still around for now.)
The DDJ-200 is not only priced at $149/£139 — it links with streaming services including SoundCloud Go+ and Beatport LINK. So, beginner DJs can save money on music, too.
The new controller is designed to run straight from your smartphone using Pioneer DJ’s WeDJ app. However, the DDJ-200 can also adapt to a more traditional setup with a laptop and music files.
The DDJ-200 is one of the first controllers to push streaming and app-driven operations. Pioneer has partnered with Serato, Native Instruments, Virtual DJ and Mixvibes to making streaming options readily available for up-and-coming DJs.
Streaming is the future — and this may be a sure sign of where the industry is headed. Still, it will probably be long before DJs give up their trusty USBs altogether.DDJ-200 and WeDJ for iPhone

Just in time for what is sure to be a wild art car experience at EDC, voice over comedian and social media influencer Blake Webber is dropping a new song full of cultural references ranging from the ’00s up to today with the title, “Weird Flex But Okay.” No matter which era of the internet you grew up with there is bound to be something in the video that reminds you of childhood. Whether it’s the “walking the dog” yo-yo trick at the beginning, the references to Kylie Jenner, Harry Potter Hypogryphs, or Fyre Fest, there is bound to be something in the video that will bring you back and make you laugh. For me, the best throwback was actually right in the opening lyrics. I don’t know if “Oh my god Ka5sh look at that flex” is supposed to sound like a reference to “Oh my god Becky look at her butt,” but as someone who grew up singing along to Sir Mix A Lot long before it was age appropriate, it caught my attention.
The video also features EDM vocalist Kaleena Zanders under the alias Ushi Qute (ooh she cute) and was produced the lovely VanessaMichaels who drops in for a cameo. Check out the brand new music video below and I dare you to not get the lyrics stuck in your head.
For those of you getting ready to head out to EDC, be sure to check out the Wide Awake Art Car on Sunday at 3:30 AM. Blake’s EDM project, Double Dare, will be throwing down for some crazy and kooky fun. You can also check out more of Kaleena when she drops in during Bijou’s set at stereoBLOOM to perform.

It’s truly hard to think that Martin Garrix, among all his accomplishments, is just 23 years old. And yet, that’s the reality we live in. Garrix was born May 14, 1996, making today his 23rd birthday!
Martin is many things, including a 3-time #1 DJ on the DJ Mag Top 100, as well as an award winner at the WDM Radio Awards, NRJ DJ Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, and more. He’s released a number of massive hits and has a loyal, dedicated global following that hangs on his every word.
But how much do you really know about him? Super fans are sure to know everything we’re about to tell you, but for those who prefer to just listen to his music rather than delve deeper, here are 10 facts about Martin Garrix you might not know (but maybe you do).
Happy birthday to Martin! Listen to his latest song “Summer Days” with Macklemore and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy below.

Paramedics are readying for Electric Daisy Carnival — and attendees must be prepared, too.
The music festival goes down this weekend, May 17 -19 in Las Vegas. Although temperatures will be cooler than in many years past, hydration concerns remain ever-present.
Community Ambulance Director of Special Operations, Glen Simpson, urges EDC attendees to stay hydrated. That means drinking lots of water, and also staying fed while you’re out at the festival.
EDC has been known to take place with temperatures reaching into the 100s. This weekend, the forecast for Las Vegas is looking much cooler, between mid 70s and low 80s. While it might feel more comfortable, you’re still going to be out there for hours and hours dancing, and it’s important to pay attention to what your body is telling you it needs.
If you’re going out to EDC — pace yourself, get plenty of rest, look out for each other — and most importantly, stay hydrated out there.First Responders Getting Ready For EDC

Two days ago, Rezz tweeted, “You are gonna be happy to be a fan of me this week.” To be fair, I’m happy to be a Rezz fan any week, but this week especially is true. While no official announcement has yet been made, a new listing on Apple Music reveals a forthcoming Rezz EP is coming.
The Beyond The Senses EP is due July 24 and will feature six new songs with collaborations from Underoath, Deathpact, EDDIE, Sayer, and The Riggs.
The collaboration with Sayer is one that’s been teased for weeks and months now. Having worked with Deathpact before, we already know that one will be a winner. The EDDIE collaboration is both surprising and not, as the two have never worked together before; however, EDDIE did just drop a stellar new EP on mau5trap. If there’s one collab on the release we’re excited for more than any other, it’s that Underoath track, “Falling.” Wow.
As mentioned before, this EP is out July 24, though singles from the release will likely come before then. You can pre-order Rezz’s Beyond The Senses EP on Apple Music now.
Already this year, two major festival have live streamed the madness that goes down. Both Ultra and Coachella brought in tens of millions of viewers collectively, but Electric Daisy Carnival this coming weekend is sure to give both festivals a run for their money.
