Monstercat Celebrates 8th Anniversary with Stacked New Compilation, Comic Book and More

Sat, 07/13/2019 - 18:31

Monstercat has traditionally been known to go all out for their birthday, and they are well within their right to do so. With every passing year, Monstercat (the Canadian label that started out as a small platform for independent EDM artists to get their music out into the world) continues to boast bigger and bigger achievements; from doing releases for massive artists to putting out chart-dominating radio singles to doing takeovers at some of the world’s most celebrated dance music festivals.

The label saw several major achievements in the last year specially, including the successful launch of their “Instinct” imprint (which was largely aided by Noisestorm’s April Fools’ song “Crab Rave,” which skyrocketed in popularity later in the year). Because of these achievements, it makes sense that Monstercat would want to have a big celebration this year, even if “8” isn’t typically a significant anniversary number.

Needless to say, fans didn’t know what quite to expect with Monstercat’s 8 year anniversary celebration. In years past, the label had done everything from sales to mega-mashups to compilations to wild, massive collaborations. This year, however, Monstercat gave fans something truly unexpected: a comic book.

Entitled Monstercat’s 8 Year Anniversary Adventure, the comic follow’s the label’s mascot on his journey to find himself, directly following the events of Monstercat 030 – Finale. The entire comic book can be found digitally here.

The comic is soundtracked by an undeniably stacked compilation album, which features eight brand new tunes from long-time label favorites and newcomers alike, as well as a slew of unforeseen collabs. Among those making appearances are Au5Infected MushroomRogue and Stephen Walking. As far as collaborations go, some of the more intriguing came from Ephixa Going Quantum (who came together for the first time on the soft-spoken, melodic D&B track “Let’s Roll”) and Pegboard Nerds Tokyo Machine (a long awaited pairing that resulted in the wild, chiptune-infused electro sounds of “MOSHI”). WRLDKeepsake (Richard Caddock) and Laszlo also joined forces for the indie-influenced mega-collab “Back to You.” The entire compilation can be listened to below:

Monstercat capped off the celebration on Friday with a new merch drop, as well as a VR party done in collaboration with Sansar (now the home of Monstercat’s radio show “Call of the Wild”). With the exception of Infected Mushroom, Rogue, AMIDY and Karra, every artist that appeared on the compilation showed up for the VR festivities, providing virtual live sets for participating fans.

Monstercat undoubtedly put together a great celebration for their 8th anniversary. We can’t wait to see what they do for their 10th!

Police Searching For Pair Of Men Who Sexually Assaulted A Woman At A Music Festival

Sat, 07/13/2019 - 14:45

Police are searching for two men accused of dragging a woman behind a toilet block at the TRNSMT festival in Glasgow and sexually assaulting her.

According to reports, “The 32-year-old woman was grabbed by a man as she made her way to toilets believed to be near the main stage at around 10pm on Friday. He pulled her round behind the block where another man sexually assaulted her. The pair ran off after three men who were passing by shouted at them.”

The two suspects are both described as white, 6ft tall, of medium build and with dark hair. One was wearing a black T-shirt with a small logo on the front and the other a white T-shirt with black writing.

Detective Sergeant Euan Keil said: “The woman was making her way to the toilets when she was grabbed by one man and pulled to the rear of the toilet block where another man sexually assaulted her.

“Her attackers fled when they were disturbed by three men who were walking by the area and who shouted at them.

“I don’t think the three men realised what was actually going on or that their intervention probably stopped this attack from escalating.

“It is important that we trace them as what they saw could prove vital to us catching the two men responsible.”

This is an ongoing story…

Hawaii Just Became the 26th State to Decriminalize Marijuana

Sat, 07/13/2019 - 14:07

Hawaii just became the 26th state to decriminalize or legalize marijuana, going with the former option.

The new law diminishes jail time for possession of up to three grams of marijuana. However, there’s still a fine of $130 attached to the citation. This initiative helps to ensure minor drug offenders aren’t put behind bars — it’s more like a slap on the wrist.

Hawaii’s legislature approved the bill and sent it along to Democratic Gov. David Ige back in May of this year. Apparently Ige didn’t ever sign the document, but he didn’t veto it either, allowing it to become law.

On January 11, 2020 the law will take effect.

Advocacy group Marijuana Policy Project released a statement on the decriminalization:

Unfortunately, three grams would be the smallest amount of any state that has decriminalized (or legalized) simple possession of marijuana. Still, removing criminal penalties and possible jail time for possession of a small amount of cannabis is an improvement.

While legalization may not be in Hawaii’s immediate future, many marijuana supporters see this as a step in the right direction.

Swedish House Mafia Reveal A$AP Rocky Collaboration In Wake Of Rapper’s Arrest

Sat, 07/13/2019 - 12:50

Swedish House Mafia Reveal A$AP Rocky Collaboration In Wake Of Rapper’s Arrest

Ten days ago, A$AP Rocky was arrested in Sweden following a physical altercation on the streets in Stockholm. By all video evidence, he was acting in self-defense, and yet he’s now reportedly being held in solitary confinement, in inhumane conditions, and it’s become a national headline. Artists and celebrities have called for his release with the hashtag #FreeRocky — here at Your EDM, we’ve been waiting for one particular Swedish outfit to join the fight and it looks like they have, and more.

Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, of Swedish House Mafia, have now posted about Rocky, but it’s not quite what we expected. They’ve both apparently revealed the existence of a Swedish House Mafia & A$AP Rocky collaboration called “Frankenstein.” Ingrosso included the #JusticeForRocky hashtag in his story, while Angello shared just the track teaser, and Axwell hasn’t posted anything about it yet. It’s not uncommon for the SHM members to differ in their postings.

See the posts from their Instagram stories below. #FreeRocky.

Conrank Answers The Question “What’s A FKNG Conrank” On Extraordinary Debut Album [Interview]

Sat, 07/13/2019 - 12:13

I’ve spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out how to start this album review, bouncing back and forth between eloquent similes and haphazard comparisons, only to arrive at one conclusion: Conrank just dropped one of my favorite albums of the year, What’s A FKNG Conrank. At the end of the day, what more needs to be said?

Well, lots, probably. The 16-track album out now on Circus Records is one of the truest examples of a pure dubstep record released in 2019. It pays homage to the classics and looks forward to the future in one concise, well-executed package that is not only incredibly creative in its production and presentation, but also damn fun to listen to. Skits are interspersed throughout the album á la The Slim Shady LP, giving the whole thing a deeper, more personal feel. Conrank also collaborates with a number of his contemporaries, including Dirt Monkey, Mark The Beast, Charmae, and more, infusing What’s A FKNG Conrank with diversity and extra flavor.

Conrank has been in the game long enough to appreciate where dubstep came from and see ahead to where it’s going. And this album, long in production as it’s been, is a pertinent example of what dubstep can do when it’s probably tended to.

Listen to the album and read on below for our interview with Conrank, asking him about past and present influences, what the skits are all about, and more.



A lot of dubstep these days is pushing the new 150 BPM standard, but you’re looking back to the genre’s roots — your own roots. Do you feel like you’re taking a gamble on this, being your debut album, or do you feel like you’re staying true to yourself?

They day I decided to do music full time was the big gamble, and the reason I started making music was to stay true to myself, so I mean it’s a bit of both, being a musician is a daily gamble, but the only way to really make it through, I believe is to stay true. I love the music i make, and i wouldn’t do it any other way. I couldn’t imagine making music just because I thought it’s what I had to do, rather than wanted to do.

There are some tracks especially, like “Level 8” and “Buk Em,” that capitalize on that early dubstep sound. How did you go into producing these tracks to give them a nostalgic feel with a modern day polish?

It’s not really something I sat and planned, I love the vibes of early dubstep, so when I’m creating a patch for example I subconsciously veer towards those vibes. It just happens. Then I carry on messing with it the way I’ve always messed with tracks and that’s really where my current sound comes from. The merging of two worlds in my head haha. I try not to think too much in the studio, which is hard cos I usually overthink everything. I work fast, and stay creative, sometimes I forget how I even came up with stuff.

One of the more creative tracks on the album that doesn’t necessarily look to the past is “OI!” with Illaman and Onjuicy. Though, it sort of is at the same time since you’ve worked with Illaman in the past. Did you go into the album wanting to work with a foreign-language vocalist, or Onjuicy in particular?

Illaman is a straight G and has become a really good friend, I’d work with him anytime anywhere, so it was awesome to have him on this track. Regarding ONJUICY I’m always on the look out for dope mc’s wherever I go, and last year i played a show in Tokyo and met him. His flow is so sick, he’s incredible, so I had to make it happen. I didn’t have a vision necessarily of working with a foreign speaking MC, it just happened, and I didn’t know where the track would go, but when I started thinking about the album i knew straight away this was it’s home.

“Bullet In The Gun” is my favorite dubstep tune in years. It’s beautifully melodic and intensely powerful, and the bass is absolutely relentless. How did you produce this one to give it such a powerful sound?

Thank you a million times. it’s tough with tracks like this because it’s a track driven by emotion. It’s not a rail rider track it’s a smile ear to ear, close your eyes and dance your little shoes off track, but that makes it even harder, because i want to find the balance of heaviness and power, but also make sure that it has the feels. i must have mixed this track 100 times trying to find the balance, it was really hard because i wasn’t looking at meters and trying to be technical with this, i was just trying to give myself chills, there’s no plugin or meter for that sadly. haha. The original has a real place in my heart so i wanted to do it justice.

At what point did you come up with the idea of doing the skits on the album?

The idea to put the skits on was obvious for me, I really wanted the album to have an album feel, like Doggystyle haha, lil funny sketches and things that show a bit of my personality away from the music. I was selling merchandise before a show once and a girl was like “Hey what’s a fucking Conrank” it was hilarious and I loved it and that was it, the whole concept was born… and a massive shout to CONRANKS ARMY for being involved too!

What took this long to put out your debut LP?

Not feeling I was ready, not feeling I was in a place where I could really express what I wanted to express or create something that I loved end to end… but it finally happened. I’m really proud of it, and I wouldn’t have done it any other way.

Do you see a shift going on in dubstep right now? Whether that is the scene, the music, etc. (Open ended question)

I mean, things shift constantly, all I’ll say is that I think people are really opening their minds up to different sounds and styles within dubstep and it’s beautiful. The scene is pretty vibrant rn.

If you had to describe the face you wish people would make when they hear this album, in 5 words or less, what would it be?

Hmmm, that’s tough, but this pretty much sums it up : https://www.pinterest.com/hodgson1248/gurners/

Valentino Khan & Diplo Make for Perfect House Combo On “JustYourSoul” [LISTEN]

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 16:07

It was about time that Valentino Khan and Diplo join forces — and today is the day!

“JustYourSoul” just dropped, pumping out a perfect blend of each master producer’s distinct style. Each with their own vast soundscapes, they really could have gone anywhere with their collab. They settled on a smooth, tasteful groove that begs, “baby, just your soul.” That’s not so much to ask.

Khan recalls how the track came to be: “So and I were hanging out in Bali together and I got food poisoning so I barely remember making this song with him but we magically made some very sexy house music for the summer. Vibe out to this one.”

With the release of “JustYourSoul,” Khan is ready to peel back the next layer of his forthcoming 6-track House Party EP. Get ready for more where this came from.

“JustYourSoul” is out now via Mad Decent. Listen below and catch the vibe.

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 14:54

Wave Racer continues his comeback with a new single called “Summer Rain” with Kwame.

“Summer Rain” follows up his most recent single released earlier this year, “AUTO.” It features vocals from Kwame, who keeps up with Wave Racer’s innocent, plucky, and fun production. The whole composition is like a breath of fresh air that infects everything it touches with good vibes.

There’s way more to come in 2019 and beyond so stay tuned. Listen to “Summer Rain” below.

G Jones & EPROM Release First Single Together Since 2017, “Daemon Veil”

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 14:52

Trying to describe the music of G Jones or Eprom is like trying to describe color to the blind. It’s impossibly difficult to understand unless you experience it for yourself. In 2017, the two defied all odds when they teamed up for “Hysteria.” Now, they’ve done it again with their new collaboration, “Daemon Veil.”

For G Jones, this is his first track since he released his debut album The Ineffable Truth last year. For Eprom, this is the second single from his forthcoming Aikon EP due out later this year on Deadbeats.

Eprom says of the release, “This tune was a special one for me and Greg because we took the opportunity to explore the DNA of some of our early influences, the prescient artists who hacked together the prototypes of acid and jungle that brought us where we are today.”

Indeed, remnants of both acid and jungle can be found in the new single, albeit morphed, melted, and resolidified in ways unfamiliar to the human eye. Looking at the track art alone, it’s clear that this is meant to be a wildly mental exercise in sound design and music — and it’s worked.

Listen to “Daemon Veil” below.

Techno pioneer Jeff Mills says electronic music has “lost its political edge”

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 14:49

Ask any wide-eyed raver wearing kandi at EDC what PLUR stands for and they can probably tell you: Peace, Love, Unity, Respect. But ask them where and when the term originated? Not likely. There’s a history to dance music that is often lost in the new zeitgeist of playlists, branding, and streaming numbers, and techno pioneer Jeff Mills believes electronic music has “lost its political edge.”

“Music, especially dance music, used to be more political. The make up of the people back in the 1970s and early 1980s was very mixed between gay and straight, people from everywhere, it was a melting pot.”

That “made it easier to speak about certain ideas like violence, brutality and racism,” Mills insisted.

“Now electronic music is primarily made by a certain type of people, typically middle class that probably have a pretty comfortable lifestyle.”

Some artists like Gramatik and Bassnectar have kept up the political activism side of their music, while others like Griz, Ekali, Moore Kismet, and more stand up for gay rights. But overall? Dance music doesn’t stand for what it used to.

Untapped Avicii Cover Of “Wake Me Up” Will Have You In Your Feels

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 14:45

As music journalists, curators, bloggers, whatever you want to call us, a lot of our time is taken up by emails and press releases and New Music Friday. Years ago, it used to be that bloggers were gatekeepers and curators of good music, and a lot of that has been lost these days. But sometimes, you need to follow your instincts and go down a rabbit hole and discover something new.

Credit to Marcus from EDM Sauce for following his, because it led him to this incredible cover of “Wake Me Up” by Avicii that will have you in your feels this Friday.

“The other night I was hanging on the couch with “America’s Got Talent” on. A guy came on stage named Chris Kläfford. […] I got online and started doing some research about this guy and he actually won a season of Sweden’s version of American Idol. Went down a bit of a worm hold (sic) and came across one of the most amazing acoustic covers of ‘Wake Me Up’ by Avicii that I have ever heard. He sang it on a Swedish news network the day after Avicii’s passing.”

Kläfford’s voice is powerful and wrought with emotion, especially considering the context of his performance. If you’re not crying after this, I don’t know what to tell you. Watch below.

Ekali Drops First Single From Debut Album, “Runaway” feat Reo Cragun

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 14:32

After years of music and touring, Ekali is finally preparing to release his debut album, and the lead single is out today, “Runaway” feat. Reo Cragun.

Reo Cragun was most recently featured on Flume’s single “Friends,” making his feature on Ekali’s debut album single all the more impressive. “Runaway” also shares some similarities with Flume’s music, though that’s purely coincidental. The single is deeply emotional and shows a different side to Ekali than we’ve seen on many of his other tracks.

There’s a lot more to expect from Ekali as the year progresses, so keep an eye out. In the meantime, check out the first single from his album below.

Woman Describes Horrific Music Festival Strip Search In Court Testimony

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 14:01

A startling account has surfaced from a woman who claims she was “humiliated” during a strip search at Knockout Circuz in 2017.

Before the NSW Coroners Court, the young, unnamed woman described how the heavy security made her feel “like a criminal.” She recalled being escorted though the crowd after a drug dog went off on her. What happened next was a full on strip search, which she described in detail as an “unpleasant experience.”

“Everyone was staring at me,” she said.

According to the festival goer, she was led to a room and instructed to take her clothes off. A female officer allegedly demanded repeatedly that she give up her drugs, because the dogs were “never wrong.”

It gets much worse…

“She said ‘if you don’t tell me where the drugs are I’m going to make this nice and slow,'” the witness explained. “She made me take my shorts off and my underwear.”

“Then she made me squat and cough… and then I had to turn around and squat and cough.”

“I have been strip searched twice and they’ve never found anything on me,” she added.

Spokeswoman Samantha Lee believes the officer may have been using the strip search as a scare tactic, which she tagged as “quite simply abhorrent.”

This testimony was reportedly taken into account as part of this week’s investigation of six drug-related deaths at NSW music festivals in 2017 and 2018.

Ed Sheeran Drops New Album With Skrillex, Khalid, Bruno Mars, & More

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 12:54

Before Ed Sheeran was signed in 2011 to Asylum Records, he made an EP called No.5 Collaborations Project with Wiley, Devlin, P Money, Ghetts and Jme — no small names in grime. Now, 8 years later, he’s followed it up with No.6 Collaborations Project and way bigger friends. The new album out today features the likes of Stormzy, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Justin Bieber, Eminem & 50 Cent, and more.

For our purposes, we’re going to focus on the Skrillex collaboration, “Way To Break My Heart,” for a moment. If Skrillex didn’t have his name on the track, you’d hardly know he had any part in this collaboration. Yes, it’s “feat Skrillex” with Sheeran putting his mark primarily on the record, but it’s unlike Skrillex to take such a huge backseat on a track.

If I had to hypothesize what Skrillex’s part in the track was, the chorus/drop is a pretty good place to start. The percussion is just synthesized enough to sort of glean the producer’s influence, but it could have easily been anyone else with a sample pack at the end of the day. It would have been nice to have some Skrillex backing guitar, some vocal chops, or even Sonny’s own voice on the record. Alas, as a collaboration, it falls short of expectation.

As for the rest of the album, reviews range between “inspired” to “cringeworthy, dull and insincere.” Ultimately it’s up to you to make that determination for yourself. Listen to the full album below.

Your EDM Premiere: Upgrade – Won’t Hold Back

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 12:06

The UK D&B producer Upgrade is firmly on the rise. He appeared on RAM Records back in 2015 and 2016 and now makes a triumphant return with his latest dance floor cut ‘Won’t Hold Back.’ Having honed his sound over the past couple of years, this is about to take his work to a whole new audience.

Upgrade brings his own vocals in the mix, drawing out melodies with a jazz-influenced groove and upping the tempo with a series of building drums. Speaking on this important release, he explains: “This project has been close to my heart for a long time – I’m re-inventing myself and trying to do something different from the rest. It’s a big switch from me and I’m hoping people will feel something from it.”

Keys N Krates Drop New “Beat Tape For Your Friends”

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 20:59

Keys N Krates dropped their debut album just over a year ago, and yet it feels like forever since we’ve heard from the Toronto three-piece ensemble. following a Live In Toronto album at the end of the year, they’re back now with a 24-minute, 11-track mixtape called A Beat Tape for Your Friends.

Whereas last year’s Cura found them navigating the intersection between hip-hop and dance, this release channels back to their hip-hop roots.

“The project is all instrumental and pays homage to the beat tapes we love like Jay Dilla’s “Donuts” which has helped shape how we approach music in general. This is our take on that idea, made from our perspective. It’s a good-vibe playlist you can put on with your friends to enjoy the summer and get outdoors after a long winter.”



The release arrives ahead of Keys N Krates playing a string of festival dates around the United States and Canada this summer, including Denver’s Global Dance Festival and Nashville’s Deep Tropics. All tickets are available  here.

A$AP Rocky Still Jailed, Forced To Cancel Festival Gigs At Tomorrowland & More

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 20:27

A$AP Rocky has been forced to cancel his upcoming Tomorrowland performances, as well as a number of other gigs, due to his incarceration.

The hip hop artist was recently taken into custody following a fight that unfolded in the streets of Stockholm. Video footage surfaced soon after the incident, which depicted A$AP and his crew as the peacemakers during much of the altercation.

That was, until they found out the two men they were beefing with had sexually harassed a couple of women, thus instigating a brawl. His actions have been described by his management as “self-defense.”

It’s been reported that A$AP is currently facing inhumane treatment in a Swedish jail. It’s unknown how long he’ll be held or the severity of the potential charges against him. What we do know is that he’ll be unable to show for his upcoming bookings.

Sonar Festival released a statement direct from A$AP Rocky’s management:

A$AP Rocky is being detained in a Swedish jail for an unknown period of time for acting in self-defense during an altercation that took place. Due to this unfortunate situation he is forced to cancel his European festival and tour dates in July.

He was also scheduled to perform at Splash! Festival in Germany, Dour Festival in Belgium, Atlas Weekend in Ukraine and Melt! Festival in Germany.

Due to this unfortunate situation he is forced to cancel his European festival and tour dates in July.” Due to this, Sónar regrets to announce that A$AP Rocky will no longer be performing at Sónar 2019. This development comes despite the best efforts of Sónar and A$AP Rocky’s management to find a solution, and we’d like to thank fans for their patience over the past week. Sónar is working hard to find a replacement artist for Friday 19th July, to be announced soon.

FINALLY: You Can Listen To Apple Music In Your Browser Now Thanks To These College Kids

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 19:48

One thing Apple Music has always been lacking is a web browser — until now.

A group of college students at the University of Kent have constructed a web-based player that runs on Apple Music. Launched just five months ago, Musish has attracted over 200,000 users and counting.

Of course, being that this website is in no way affiliated with Apple Music, it’s reasonable to be skeptical about dishing out your Apple ID for sheer convenience. However, Musish asserts they cannot access the web browser login associated with the Apple.com domain.

Developer Brychan Bennett-Odlum spoke to Cult of Mac to explain how the service works. Once logged in, Musish is able to access your Apple Music content via browser. For all accounts that allow access, Musish pulls up the user’s music library, playlists and listening activity.

Bennett-Odlum further explains:

Apple then sends the Musish web app a token which we send back to Apple in subsequent requests which they use to identify the user and return us data / perform an action (such as playing a song, or adding an album to their library). This token is only valid for the scope of Apple Music, and not other services they provide. It’s also only valid for a limited time. On top of this, we make sure to never even send the user’s token to any server we host.

Ghastly Announces New Album ‘Haunted House’

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 19:45

Ghastly just announced a new album, Haunted House, which he promises is coming soon.

The finished product didn’t come easy, as the producer reveals his laptop was destroyed a while back with the album he was working on. Thankfully, he was able to recover the project files, but was still missing much of the patches and samples that went into his body of work.

This is enough to make any music creator freak out, but Ghastly remained calm and began reworking the tracks. He explains, “I had to recreate and approach this conundrum from a different perspective and somehow made it better than it originally was.”

Earlier this year, Ghastly let fans know he’ll be focusing on house music in the future. Will Haunted House put an emphasis on the house?

Stay tuned for more details. For now, check out the album art and read Ghastly’s full statement below.
