Snapchat users can finally share music directly from Spotify to their Stories — and it’s about time.
The new integration out today (September 9) allows users to share tracks, albums, artists, playlists and podcasts with their friends. This can be done directly via private message or posted to Stories for all friends to see.
Spotify already rolled out this feature for Facebook and Instagram Stories. Now, Snapchat is up to speed, making music sharing within the app easier than ever before.
Getting started with Spotify’s new feature is rather intuitive — simply tap the “share” menu and select “Snapchat” from the dropdown list. The app should automatically launch a post with the album art. Boom!
Tidal and Pandora also push music sharing features. Tidal, with Facebook and Instagram Stories. Pandora, with Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.

Out today is FKA twigs‘ new song “holy terrain” with Future, produced by Skrillex and Jack Antonoff.
FKA twigs ends months of speculation by announcing details of her highly anticipated second album. Titled MAGDALENE, the album will be released on October 25th, and is the follow up to FKA twigs’ critically acclaimed debut LP1.
Having already released the album’s first single “Cellophane” in April, “holy terrain” presents a clearly more electronic side, no doubt influenced by Skrillex’s inclusion on the track. 808s and samples pervade the track, backed by FKA twigs lighter-than-air vocals and Future’s autotuned flow.
Watch the official music video below.

The masked virtuoso, Boris Brejcha, has wrapped up his North American Tour and in honor of that he has released a brand new, immersive EP entitled Butterflies .
Brejcha has seemingly carved out quite the niche with his particular style and sound. It has garnered him quite the acclaim and listeners have given his brand techno the name “high-tech minimal”. With Butterflies being his third release of the summer it is crystal clear that people can’t seem to get enough of the sheer creativity and masterfulness that this man produces.
The EP opener ‘Redemption’ pairs a chunky, driving bassline with a similarly assertive breakdown. ‘Sternengleiter’ follows and offers the record’s most emotive and hypnotic moments, with title track ‘Butterflies’ closing out the EP, which sees him sculpt eight minutes of delicate, fluttering techno. “As a butterfly you feel free. You can be carried by the wind,” Brejcha enthuses. “The title was created in my winter break, free from all obligations.”
It has become evident that 2019 has been a power house year for Boris Brejcha; multiple releases, a major North American Tour, and performances with other legends such as Sven Vath in Ibiza, and Chris Leibing in LA and Miami. With this sort of momentum I don’t believe we will be seeing this artist stopping anytime soon, we can only patiently await more releases of this caliber.
The official Alienstock Music Festival, born out of the viral “Storm Area 51” Facebook event, is set to go on September 20-22 in the nearby town of Rachel, Nevada. But authorities are making it very clear: do not try to cross into Area 51.
Event organizer Matty Roberts agrees. “I am trying to advocate against the storming as much as I can,” said Roberts in a recent interview. “I just want a gathering of all these weirdos in the desert.”
“We don’t know whether there’s going to be 50 or 50,000 people, it’s a little difficult to plan for,” said Sheriff Kerry Lee with Lincoln County. The event is free for attendees, though donations are encouraged to fund security, and basic amenities like water and sewage.
Officially, authorities are planning on estimates of up to 30,000 attendees.
“Our two big tings are going to be medical issues, traffic issues and of course, it’ll be small, but an issue of people that try to attempt to cross the boundary of the NTTR,” explained Lee.
According to local news KTNV, so far, at least 2,000 campsites, limited to 4 people per spot, have been purchased for Alienstock.

It looks like we’ll finally be getting our Rezz x Zeds Dead collaboration soon!
The first time a collaboration was teased between the two was last December, when Rezz mentioned she was waiting on vocals to play around with after which she’d send ZD the idea. Since then, it’s been pretty quiet while Rezz dropped her new EP and Zeds Dead continue dropping their own collabs.
Now, a single tweet has reignited the spark of excitement. Rezz tweeted and tagged Zeds Dead with a envelope and arrow emoji. It’s not clear what was sent, whether it was a master or her final demo or what else, but she just definitely sent something to the duo and, no matter what, it means good news for the rest of us.
Zeds Dead have already released collabs with Delta Heavy, Dion Timmer, and Droeloe in 2019 so far. Their new collaboration with Jauz is out tomorrow. We’ll keep you posted on when this Rezz tune drops.

Post Malone is a far cry from EDM — but when he puts out new music we stop and listen.
The famed rapper, singer, and songwriter just dropped his latest album, Hollywood’s Bleeding. Just as everyone expected, it’s hitting just perfectly with his fans and projected to debut at No. 1.
The album boasts a star-studded list of collaborators including Lil Baby, Ozzy Osbourne, DaBaby, Future, Halsey, Meek Mill, Travis Scott, Young Thug, SZA, and Swae Lee. It’s apparent Post isn’t afraid to try new things with his sound and that means bringing on a diverse wave of artists to collab with.
“I’m making things work in a way that I don’t want to alienate fans of my music but at the same time I want to do something weird and funky,” Posty revealed to Zane Lowe about Hollywood’s Bleeding. “I think this record, the new record is something super epic and I think it’s really cool. I think I’m really catching a groove and just giving the best I can.”

A crowd stampede at Lil Wayne‘s music festival in New Orleans has resulted in the injury of several people.
For unknown reasons, an estimated 15,000 people began running on Saturday night following Meek Mill‘s performance at the Lil WeezyAna Fest. It’s unclear what exactly started the panic, but it’s speculated that rumors of gunfire or a fight were to blame.
Amongst the chaos, many people were pushed to the ground and experienced mild cuts, scrapes and bruises. No serious injuries have been reported. However, it’s unknown how many people were injured during the incident.
Concession workers also reported stolen goods and cash during the outbreak, as they abandoned their tents to seek safety.
Medical staff provided care on site at Lil WeezyAna Fest, treating those who suffered injury.
The one-day music festival continued on despite the madness.

Avicii would have been 30 years old today…
Today and everyday, friends, family and fans across the world are remembering a legend. Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, brought people together through his music and left a positive, uplifting impact on the industry.
Unfortunately, the renowned DJ/producer took his own life at age 28, which made his time here on Earth that much more precious. The struggles and exhaustion he faced coming up on fame were later depicted in the Avicii: True Stories documentary.
In memorial of Avicii, we urge you to check out the Tim Bergling Foundation, an organization dedicated to mental health awareness and other pressing issues. Also, you can share your memories of Avicii here via his official website.
Let us know how you’re remembering Avicii today — whether it’s playing his music or reminiscing about a show. Honoring his legacy could be as simple as taking time for self care.
Happy 30th, Avicii. RIP.Avicii – Tim Bergling Foundation View this post on Instagram
@timberglingfoundation will advocate for the recognition of suicide as a global health emergency and promote removing the stigma attached to the discussion of mental health issues. The foundation will also support issues for which Tim had a passion such as climate change, preservation of endangered species and global hunger.

The pushing of drugs on popular social media apps such as Snapchat and Instagram is becoming a problem. Now, the government is being urged to force these platforms to turn in drug dealing accounts to the police.
This comes as a quarter of young people (ages 16 – 24) reported seeing cannabis, cocaine, and other drugs for sale on social media apps. Some have seen heroin, ketamine and synthetic cannabinoids aka “spice” for sale.
More and more dealers are uploading photos and videos of drugs, often times on disappearing stories, and asking users to contact them directly. Emojis and encrypted messaging are used to avoid detection.
Upon investigating, The Telegraph was able to find more than 10 accounts within an hour, selling cannabis, cocaine and Xanax via social media. The accounts were later removed after being turned in to Instagram.
As for the codes — a horse represents ketamine, a nose or snowflake represents cocaine, and a pig, rat or snake signals an account that works with moderators or the police.Drugs for Sale On Social Media

Two months ago, Conrank dropped one of my favorite albums of the year, What’s a FKNG Conrank. Now, one of my all-time favorite drum & bass producers, TC, is here to remix one of my favorite tracks on the album, “Drum in Time.” To say that I’m chuffed would be an understatement.
In its original element, “Drum in Time” is a powerful dubstep tune with a thoroughly heavy bassline and some really creative arrangement. TC keeps a lot of the original melodic elements intact while just doing what he does best — pumping up the tempo. The result is a powerfully fast and destructive tune with a hypnotic structure and rhythm that urges you to two step, headbang, and flail about in the best ways.
Whereas Conrank’s whole vibe called back to the classic days of wub, TC presents a jump up tune that pays tribute to the classics and brings it to the future, presenting a culmination of the history of both genres in one tight package. Honestly, it’s a fucking master tune.
Check out TC’s remix of “Drum in Time” from Conrank below, out tomorrow on Circus Records!

This year we’ve seen some pretty stacked lineups, but this one is giving them all a run for their money. Djakarta Warehouse Project just announced its first phase and it’s already insane.
The headliners are enough to get us there. Calvin Harris is making a rare festival appearance, along with three more top-tier acts, Martin Garrix, Zedd and Skrillex. It’s not everyday we see all of these performers on the same bill, but DWP is clearly not messing around in 2019.
The undercard is just as impressive, with Jeffrey Sutorius as Dash Berlin, Oliver Heldens, Yellow Claw, Salvatore Ganacci and more. Anyone familiar with these acts knows this festival is going for nonstop action all weekend long.
Speaking of which, DWP takes place December 13 – 15 at Jakarta International Expo in Indonesia. Tickets and info here.Djakarta Warehouse Project 2019

At the end of 2018, Your EDM put out its annual Artists To Watch list and among the names was Blanke. While we knew, thanks to our relationship with him and his team, that he showed strong promise in the dance music world, no one could have predicted how much he was going to blow up in 2019. With a strong following of fans calling themselves Blanke’s Nobodies (join here), stellar performances at HARD Summer, Ever After Music Festival, Escapade Music Festival, and more Blanke has, in no uncertain terms, made 2019 his bitch.
Now to cap off an already stellar year, he’s just released his debut EP with Deadbeats called Change & Decay. Spanning four songs, including collaborations with GG Magree and Reaper, the EP spans a range of sounds and emotions.
Having only released “Incinerate” as a single prior to the EP’s release, Blanke makes a grand showing for the lengths he’s improved even just over the past year. Of course this doesn’t come as a surprise to those who have been paying attention.
In a personal statement, he says, “Change & Decay has been a representation of emotion and progress in so many areas in my life. I’ve never put out a body of work this size so it’s awesome to be able to tell a bit more of a story through my music.”

Having already released a debut album from his GAIA project with producer partner Benno de Goeij this year, Armin van Buuren today has just announced the name, release date, and full tracklist for his 7th studio album, Balance.
Balance, which follows on previous albums 76, Shivers, Imagine, Mirage, Intense, and Embrace, is set for release on October 25. Rumors that Armin van Buuren was putting the final touches to his new artist album have been circulating the web for months now, and it’ll definitely please the legions of dance music fans to know that those rumors weren’t false.
Armin van Buuren says of the announcement, “I’m so glad I can finally reveal the name and release date of my new album. ‘BALANCE’ is a new chapter in my book of life, the result of venturing into known and unknown territories while finding the balance in between. I can’t wait to share it with you!”

Joe Rogan made his EDM debut last month with Beardyman on “6am (Ready to Write),” which sampled Rogan’s reading of the infamous daily routine of Hunter S. Thompson. As absurd as the routine is, the music video for the track is even more so.
The video pulls no punches from the start, following the day of a man who’s on a crazy bender, doing line after line of whatever he can get his hands on, chainsmoking cigarettes, and just trying to retain his sanity (or perhaps escape it). At the point he runs out of anything to put up his nose, it develops a mind of its own and extends from his face on an adventure to find more drugs.
From here, it just gets weird. Really weird. And then it gets even weirder. Just when you think it’s done, it keeps on going and going in what will probably be my favorite music video of the entire year.
Watch it below.
The visual is directed by the acclaimed Ian Pons Jewell who has previously worked with the likes of Kanye West, Nao, Vince Staples, Rejjie Snow, and many more.

The lawyer who defended A$AP Rocky in his recent assault trial in Sweden was shot in a seemingly targeted attack. Henrik Olsson Lilja was shot in the head and chest in Stockholm, but was able to call the police himself despite severe injury.
According to multiple reports, the senior lawyer was leaving his apartment early Friday morning when he was ambushed by a main waiting inside the building. There was an apparent struggle between the two before Olsson Lilja was shot.
He was responsive when police arrived. Later that day, the lawyer was said to be in “serious but stable” condition.
Not only did Olsson Lilja work on A$AP Rocky’s case, he also represents Qiao Jianjun, one of China’s most wanted.
Swedish police are treating this as an isolated incident and the investigation is ongoing.
The suspect is reportedly in custody.

Flume is full of surprises lately and with no warning, he just unleashed an all-house mini mix. And when we say mini mix — we’re talking rather mini — clocking in at just 5 minutes long.
Flume’s ‘Hi, This Is 4/4‘ Mini Mix premiered on Annie Mac‘s show on BBC 1 Radio. As she mentions, it’s quite the change up considering most of the producer’s music strays wildly from the house/techno realm. He’s really digging deep in these five short minutes.
It’s a tease indeed, but awesome to hear where Flume’s head is at when it comes to house. Listen Here!
If you’re craving more, revisit the producer’s extraordinary ‘Hi, This Is Flume’ here.

The album also includes a fan favorite, Rüfüs Du Sol’s VIP edit of “Eyes.”

It’s been exactly one year that music lost a legend in Mac Miller.
On September 7, 2018, the devastating news of Mac’s death came as a complete shock to his entire fanbase an the industry as a whole. It became immediately apparent, the boundless impact he had on music and the world.
Hundreds of fans from all over came together on Friday to celebrate the late rapper’s life and legacy in his hometown of Pittsburgh. A bittersweet memorial was held at Frick Park’s Blue Slide Park, a playground made famous by Mac’s album and song under the same name.
One year later, our hearts are still heavy. RIP.Mac Miller’s 1 Year Memorial

Steve Aoki and Backstreet Boys make for a surprising match in their new single, “Let It Be Me.”
Backstreet’s back alright, but not in full boy band form. The group, consisting of all five original members, sacrifices much of their signature style to meet Aoki in the middle. The bold harmonies — lyrical moments you want to shout at the top of your lungs — those are all gone, but this toned down version of BSB is incredibly smooth and radio friendly.
In “Let It Be Me,” the producer works his magic, shaping a light, danceable groove consistent with a more modern pop/dance track. Not only does “Let It Be Me” agree with BSB’s sultry, lovesick vibe, it brings their sound into 2019 in a seemingly effortless way. With this, Aoki and BSB have unleashed the collaboration nobody knew they needed until now.
Aoki promises, “You’ll get all the feels with this one.”

Techno is having perhaps its biggest year yet, with labels like Drumcode exploding from the underground to the mainstream. It’s appropriate, then, that the genre reflects on its past before entering a new era. The best way to reflect? Remix a rave a classic with a modern techno spin.
Man-of-the-moment Enrico Sangiuliano lends his production talents for a remix of “Camargue,” a classic rave track from 1992. Produced by CJ Bolland and The Advent, “Camargue” paved the way for modern techno. Normally remixing such an iconic track is blasphemy, but Sangiuliano works his magic.
The remix cleverly incorporates elements of the original track: a melodic inversion of the original bassline and updated kicks. The original track’s iconic melody dramatically breaks the remix halfway through, right before a big-room drop. The remix borders on original production at times, but one could argue a lot of great remixes morph a track into almost something entirely different.
Sangiuliano’s remix is part of Drumcode’s larger remix collection for “Camargue,” featuring remixes from Adam Beyer and Maceo Plex and including the original track. It’s a great time to be a techno fan!
