Shuttle And Transport Details Revealed For Ultra Miami 2019

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 13:14

Since it was announced that Ultra Music Festival was to take place in Virginia Key in 2019, one of the biggest concerns was transportation to and from the festival. The only road into Virginia Key is Rickenbacker Causeway, a two-lane highway that can’t possibly support the tens of thousands of attendees who would be traveling to the festival each day.

A cease & desist from Rapture Festival toward Ultra inadvertently revealed that Ultra was applying for water taxi permits, but yesterday the festival revealed the full scope of its transportation options.

Two major points regarding the shuttles for Ultra in 2019:

  • They will be FREE
  • They will have restrooms, air-conditioning, and free WiFi

Those two points alone do a lot to put aside worries about transportation. There will be three shuttle hubs around Miami for attendees to hop on and grab a ride, two of which are fairly close to Ultra’s old venue Bayfront Park, in case attendees already reserved hotels and couldn’t change reservations.

At this time, no official mention of water taxis has been made, but it’s more than likely that there will be some sort of water transport to the festival.

The announcement yesterday reminds attendees that there is no parking for General Admission patrons. Whether this means there’s a VIP option for parking on Virginia Key is unclear; we were unable to find any definitive answer on Ultra’s website.

R3hab Drops Remix Pack for “Radio Silence” and North American Tour

Tue, 01/15/2019 - 12:59

R3hab is kicking off 2019 with a brand new remix pack and a North American tour. “Radio Silence” featuring Jocelyn Alice is the latest single off R3hab’s recent album The Wave. While the Dutch/Moroccan producer originally came to fame behind massive festival tracks like “Revolution” and “Samurai”, over the past couple of years R3hab has shown himself to be adept at switching between mainstage ready tracks and more radio-friendly fare. “Radio Silence” is definitely a more pop-leaning track. Some acoustic guitar synths lay the framework for the song and Jocelyn Alice’s vocals weave a somber tale of loneliness. The drop and the rhythm are bouncy though.

The Radio Silence EP showcases a variety of new takes on the track. The Ryan Riback remix offers a bit more of a traditional piano-house version of the track. The King Arthur remix might be the best, offering up a thrilling electro-house rendition of the song, that would fall perfectly into any R3hab set. The Rainer + Grimm remix is also a winner, offering a mix of electro and tropical house into a song that’s perfect for a summer pool party. D-Wayne and Matthew Hill round out the rest of the remix pack.



Check out Radio Silence EP out now on R3hab’s Cyb3rpvnk records and get your tickets to see him on The Wave tour starting next month.

Feb. 2 Washington DC-Echostage
Feb. 8 Denver-The Church
Feb. 9 Las Vegas-Marquee
Feb. 15 San Francisco-Mezzanine
Feb. 16 Los Angeles-Belasco Theater
Feb. 22 Toronto-Uniun
Feb. 23 Chicago-Concord Music Hall
Feb. 26 Ledyard, CT-Shrine

Your EDM Guest Mix: Trei’s Newest Tracks So Heavy You Might Get ‘The Bends’

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 22:49

Trei has been a mainstay with Viper Recordings since 2013 but it’s been a few years since he released solo tracks with them, preferring to lend his brand of emotive yet hard-hitting DnB to compilations and collabs. Last month he did release some solo jams on Viper, however, in the form of “Fools Rush” and “The Bends.” It doesn’t hurt that he has two more new tracks out on the Viper 2019 Annual: a compilation with Ekko & Sidetrack called “Luddites” and his own solo track called “Out There.”

Suffice it to say that for this guest mix he has bestowed upon Your EDM, Trei could have simply laid down his own recent Viper tracks back to back and everyone would have been more than happy. That is not the case however, and in fact this little 20-minute mix includes 15 tracks of varying genres and intensities. He’s covered all the great music that has come out or is coming out this month, including his own tracks but also featuring Insomniax’s banger “Foghorn,” Crissy Criss’s “Shockwave” with Malux and Erb ‘n’ Dub and Rido’s “Blueprint” with Joe Ford. There’s also some fun wild cards like a track from Vowel on Bad Taste, multiple Prototypes tracks and some seemingly random tracks from Dub Elements. It’s a power-packed little mix full of surprises and emotional ups and downs.

We won’t say much more other than this mix is a need to listen to hear all the bangers that are out and up in the next month or so. It’s also a lesson in how to put all these seemingly opposed tracks together in a subgenre mashup mix that defies gravity.

All of Trei’s newest tracks on Viper and otherwise are available on his Beatport page and clips are available on Soundcloud or full streams on Spotify. Don’t forget to pick up the Viper Annual as well, out now.

Hulu Beats Netflix To The Punch, Releases New Fyre Festival Documentary

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 20:14

Netflix has a much anticipated Fyre Festival documentary, FYRE, coming out this Friday. However, competing streaming service Hulu has beaten Netflix to the punch with a documentary of their own, Fyre Fraud.

The differences between the two documentaries lies in the people interviewed and the type of content shown. Hulu’s Fyre Fraud features an exclusive interview with Fyre Festival co-founder Billy McFarland, as well as interviews with media figures including Jake Horowitz from MIC, Polly Mosendz from Bloomberg, and Jia Tolentino from The New Yorker.

Fyre Fraud directors Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason:

FYRE FRAUD is more than the story of a failed music festival in the Bahamas—this dark comedy is a cautionary tale for a generation.

Billy McFarland offers us a window into the mind of a con artist, the insidious charm of the fraudster and how they can capture our imaginations, our investment, and our votes in the age of Trump. McFarland’s staggering ambition metastasized in a petri dish of late-stage capitalism, corporate greed, and predatory branding, all weaponized by our fear of missing out.

Our aim was to set the stage for a strange journey into the moral abyss of our digital age, going beyond the meme to show an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and willing to look the other way, for their own gain.

We draw on countless cultural references, on true crime tension, and on humor—but we did not intend to create a toothless comedy about the Fyre Festival. We hope this film can pierce our collective apathy and disrupt our own millennial peers, if only for an instant—to look at these stories for what they truly are, and to halt this algorithm before it devours us whole.

The documentary Fyre Fraud is now available on Hulu. Watch the trailer below.

Jai Wolf Announces Debut Album, Drops First Two Singles & Tour Dates

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 19:00

For the most part, Jai Wolf took 2018 off. Apart from releasing “Lost” with Chelsea Jade and its accompanying remixes, Jai didn’t tour for all of 2018 and didn’t release any other music. For EDM artists, for whom releasing music consistently is arguably more important than in other genres in order to stay in a DJ’s song rotation, the move could only mean one thing: something bigger was on the horizon.

Sure enough, today Jai Wolf announced his debut album, The Cure To Loneliness. From the pre-order, we know that the album will be 12 tracks and will be released on April 5. Along with the album announce, the first two singles from the album were also released today, “Lose My Mind” featuring Mr Gabriel, and “Telepathy.”

Considering “Indian Summer” is Jai Wolf’s biggest song ever, most fans will naturally gravitate toward “Telepathy” first. It has those recognizable guitar plucks and dreamy synths with chopped vocals that Jai Wolf fans know and love. It’s sure to be a high point on his upcoming tour – we’ll get to that in a second. But before that, we have to address the other new song “Lose My Mind.”

This is the one that a lot of Jai Wolf fans could end up scratching their head at. Right off the bat, it’s clear to hear that this isn’t like any other Jai Wolf track we’ve known thus far. The drums and guitar immediately give the impression of a pop alt track, and as soon as the vocal croons comes in, there’s no doubting it. This is a new style for Jai Wolf, coming off like a combination of Capital Cities and M83. It’s not immediately apparent if this is a one-off on the album or a sign of things to come, but our interest is definitely piqued.

“In my heart, this album is me,” professes Jai Wolf. “From the sounds to the lyrics, it’s everything that I’ve always wanted to do.

“I like writing songs that have a duality, a complexity of feeling that takes you to a melancholy, reflective space. My music is for people who are desperately dreaming beyond where they are at right now—it can be the future, it can be the past. I want you to feel nostalgic. I want you to reflect on your life. I also want you to be inspired about where your life could go.”

“Lose My Mind” also comes with a new music video, which you can watch here. Pre-order The Cure To Loneliness here.



The album announcement and new music also comes with a tour announcement. Jai Wolf will be kicking off the tour in April at 9:30 Club in Washington, DC five days after the album drops, and it’ll end at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Tickets will be available to the public on January 18 at jaiwolf.co/TCTLtour.

Lightning in a Bottle Plans New Location & New Dates For 2019 [DETAILS]

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 18:29

Big news coming from Lightning in a Bottle — the music festival is on the move again!

In an official statement on the event’s website, organizers reveal they are locking in a new venue. Plans will be finalized within the next 2-3 weeks. The exact location has yet to be revealed but LIB will still take place in sunny, Central California. This is the 5th time in the history as a festival that LIB has switched up location.

Another change to take note of — the music festival will take place two weeks earlier than usual, over May 8th – 13th. That gives LIB a little less time to get everything in order, but it sounds like everything is going according to plan.

“We’re optimistic for a great outcome, but we still need the support and trust of you all, our powerful and positive LIB community,” LIB shares. “Please take a moment to help us visualize a beautiful LIB this May. Imagine yourself with your friends, families and lovers, surrounded by music and art, making that LIB magic together.

The Earlybird ticket on sale will be in the next few weeks and will coincide with the official location announcement. Be on the lookout for more information as it’s made available

Flume Confirmed Working With Gorillaz

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 18:25

With so many media sources in today’s world, it’s hard to not let something slip through every once in a while, even if it’s a big news piece, like, say… Flume working with the Gorillaz???

The smoking gun was dug up again by @Electric_Hawk on Twitter, referencing an interview that Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn did with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 in 2018. All it took was one sentence:

“I’ve been working with Flume.”

And we’re hyped as hell.

Flume took a break in 2018, but it seems that he’s coming back full-force this year with new music and collaborations.

Here's @Damonalbarn from Gorillaz mentioning in his Beats1 interview about working with @flumemusic pic.twitter.com/2VwPUEpqw5

Report: Unpaid TSA Workers Blast Uncensored Travis Scott, Kanye West Over Loudspeakers

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 17:21

TSA agents at JFK airport in NYC are making the most of the government shutdown by playing whatever the hell they want through the loudspeakers.

According to multiple reports, the unpaid workers have been playing uncensored material from Travis Scott, Kanye West, Ludacris, and more throughout the entire airport. Just imagine the dirty version of “Sicko Mode” playing as you get checked through by security. Pretty bad ass, right?

“JFK Airport blasting Ludacris at 5:45 am is a vibe,” one person shared on Twitter. Jay-Z and Paramore were also among the music selections, so it’s safe to say TSA has great taste.

Honestly, we’re about to book some flights with layovers at JFK just so we can experience this firsthand. Keep doing you, TSA! Don’t let ’em steal your shine!

Lmao RT @LSDiPalma: TSA has officially stopped giving a fuck. SICKO MODE (dirty version) is playing on the speakers at JFK lmfaooo

The Weeknd Comes Under Fire For Controversial Lyrics In New Collab with Gesaffelstein

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 14:53

Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd recently unleashed their collab together, which stirred up some initial excitement. Now, it’s making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The Weeknd’s lyrics have always been sexualized and graphic, but he may have taken this one too far. The singer is being called out for some controversial lyrics, as heard in “Lost In The Fire.” Particularly, there’s one verse causing debate for obvious reasons.

Basic synopsis: The Weeknd pursues a girl who is into girls, dismisses her lesbianism, and proposes a three way so he can fuck her “straight.” Yikes.

[Verse 2]
I’m tired of being home alone (Home alone)
I used to have a girl a day (Girl a day)
Yeah, I want you to stay (I want you to stay, hey)
You said you might be into girls (Into girls)
You said you’re going through a phase (Through a phase)
Keepin’ your heart safe (Keepin’ your heart safe, oh)
Well, baby, you can bring a friend (Bring a friend)
She can ride on top your face (Top your face)
While I fuck you straight (While I fuck you straight, yeah)

I’m guilty of listening to the song, even breezing through the lyrics, and not realizing that some of the message could be hurtful and offensive. Honestly, we wrote it off as a “Starboy 2.0” and had already moved on, but this is certainly a conversation that needs to be had.

Read some of the discussion going on via Twitter below.

“Lost In The Fire” Lyrics

Well done to @theweeknd for managing to deride, fetishise and dismiss lesbianism all in one verse. pic.twitter.com/iefdhs8ACw

— Marika Hackman (@MarikaHackman) January 11, 2019

i don't like cancel culture & i'm not saying "cancel the weeknd," but these are the kinds of lyrics that fucked me up when i was younger & subconsciously kept me in the closet. so it's important to talk about and say "this is isn't ok"

— Jill Gutowitz (@jillboard) January 11, 2019

RT if you think the weeknd should take a weekend off to think about respecting a. sexual orientation b. women and c. himself https://t.co/Q3Fvea68pE

— Ellen Penrose (@ellenpenrose_) January 11, 2019

absolutely not here for @theweeknd's new song which is #1 on @Spotify's new music right now despite its blatant lesbo and biphobia https://t.co/HhyHuVpHh5

Dillon Francis x Alison Wonderland’s “Lost My Mind” Is Finished

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 13:55

Dillon Francis and Alison Wonderland‘s new collaboration is almost here!

“MIXED MASTERED ALL DONE GET FUCKING READY,” Dillon shares in the short video clip below. Of course, the collab is front and center — and it’s impossible to take our ears off it.

“Lost My Mind” is sounding incredibly clean and as heavy as ever. After first premiering the ID at EDC Orlando, it has become a fast favorite among both fan bases. Two months later, this collababy is ready.

Dillon and Alison have been playing it out during live sets like a hidden gem, but soon enough we can listen to it anytime. Which will probably be often.

Check out the polished version “Lost My Mind” — or at least 11 seconds of it — right here!

P.S. See them both in action on their co-headlining Lost My Mind Tour.

Diplo Responds to Rumor of Being Gay: “Masculinity Is a Prison”

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 13:05

For some reason, Diplo’s sexual orientation has long been a debate among gossip blogs and intolerant fans. Diplo has exhibited elements of both hetero- and homosexuality, and has even tweeted before that he was “only half gay.” (Back in 2016 this apparently caused some confusion, but even just 2.5 years later, the world is much more tolerant of nonbinary sexuality.)

Tweeting last week about Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf, played by Leighton Meester, some grouch replied wondering, “Y’all sure he is str8? [sic]”

Diplo responded simply, “masculinity is a prison.”

blair waldorf is the upper east side tony soprano

— YBN Grouchy (@diplo) January 8, 2019

masculinity is a prison https://t.co/Rx9LeP1CYN

— YBN Grouchy (@diplo) January 8, 2019

Diplo’s answer is both a scathing condemnation of toxic masculinity as well as a broader look into what makes the renowned producer/DJ/musician tick. Diplo has had two children with his ex, Kathryn Lockhart, but he’s also kissed Pabllo Vittar last year in the Brazilian drag star’s “Então Vai” music video. He’s also been a huge supporter of producer/DJ KANDY, who came out as gay last year and has been a major advocate for gay culture in his music.

If this is the Diplo we get to know in 2019, rather than the one picking fights with Zedd, or awkwardly hitting on Cardi B after her very public breakup with Offset, we’re about it.

“Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram,” the caption reads. “Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.”

The World Record Egg is now, officially, the most liked picture on Instagram. The post has racked up 31 million likes and counting.

Pill Testing Debate Intensifies Following Death Of FOMO Music Festival Attendee

Sun, 01/13/2019 - 21:29

Sadly, another person has passed away following FOMO Music Festival in Sydney. The outcry for pill testing has intensified in the wake of Alexandra Ross-King’s death.

The 19-year-old was partying with friends in 35-degree (95 Fahrenheit) heat when she was take to the medical tent. Ross-King was then taken to a hospital, but could not be revived.

This is the fifth death that has taken place in NSW over the past four months. The heated debate surrounding pill testing has once again ignited. The young woman’s family has even asked Premier Gladys Berejiklian to please consider.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison spoke out on the issue in saying, “We don’t want to create a permissive culture around drugs in this country. We have to remember these are illegal drugs.”

“I am saying of course all options get considered but ultimately you have to get the balance right on this. This is a state matter and I am not going to complicate that any by offering commentary on which is the best option because they have to make those judgment, but my heart does go out to those parents as Gladys’s heart goes out to those parents as well.”

Berejiklian was also recently quoted in saying, “I want to make sure we reduce deaths and my worry is pill testing could actually have the opposite effect.”

It’s believed that Ross-King died after taking MDMA pills, toxicology report pending. She was just one of 11 taken to the hospital over the weekend.

At FOMO music festival, more than 11,000 people were in attendance. Police reportedly searched 146 people — of which, 54 were found in possession of drugs and three were charged with supply.

NSW Health has issued a warning for MDMA and other party drugs following the outbreak of overdoses.

The Black Madonna Opens Up About EDM Following Holy Ship Experience

Sun, 01/13/2019 - 17:22

The Black Madonna, just like everyone else, had an amazing time on Holy Ship. So much so that she’s now reflecting on EDM music and the community as a whole.

“I used to hate EDM and I still really don’t care for the music,” she opens up on Twitter. “But… I remember something Carl Cox said about how he was fine with EDM because it’s basically an entry point for young people in dance and how those people will stick around, the implication being tastes change.”

She goes on to describe the various styles of music she experienced while on Holy Ship this year. Over five sets, she played “all the things” she usually plays. But, Holy Ship warmed her up to a world full of other music as well.

“And to reiterate, I heard excellent music on this boat. I also heard EDM and it’s not my thing but I respect the diversity of listeners all sharing ideas and supporting each other and exploring new sounds. Remember that?”

After being given more hugs and kandi than she knew what to do with, it’s safe to say her overall experience was a heartwarming one. She continues on with her relevant thread…

“I will always be most me and most comfortable in a dirty basement or warehouse, but I’m glad I know these people and those hugs made me feel great and these are great kids figuring out who they are in dance music just like us old ravers used to be.”

“Being jaded is lame,” she adds.

This is your warm and fuzzy post for the day. Enjoy!

I played ALLLLLLL the things I always play. 5 sets. The dancers on the boat were young. Yes they were blinking. I was given bracelets and candy and more hugs than I can count. Walking along the boat, every five feet it seemed someone would ask me if they could hug me.

— THE BLACK MADONNA (@blackmadonnachi) January 12, 2019

And to reiterate, I heard excellent music on this boat. I also heard EDM and it’s not my thing but I respect the diversity of listeners all sharing ideas and supporting each other and exploring new sounds. Remember that?

deadmau5 Spills Details On His New “Secret Track” Out Now

Sun, 01/13/2019 - 17:16

deadmau5 low key just put out a “secret track” that’s really not so secret anymore…

The mau5trap legend teamed up with fellow music producer and Twitch streamer dronehands on this new production. The mystery track entitled “The Horn Of Jericho” is part of October Forever, the new album from dronehands.

In a live stream on Twitch, deadmau5 spilled the info on the collaboration. He says he was quite involved in making “like half” of the track including some of the melody. As you can hear, it’s totally different than what we’ve come to expect from mau5, but it’s a refreshing change of pace.

“The Horn Of Jericho” is available here as a free download — but remember — it’s important to support the artists involved. Especially when the music is as quality as this! Enjoy!

Denver Might Just Become The First City To Decriminalize Magic Mushrooms

Sun, 01/13/2019 - 13:06

Denver is making some serious mushroom moves!

The city could become the first in the U.S. to decriminalize psychedelic mushrooms, now that a petition has garnered enough support with approximately 9,500 signatures. The next step is to allow voters to decide on the May ballot — make magic mushrooms legal, or not?

The advocacy group supporting the movement, Decriminalize Denver, has 25 days to verify the legitimacy of the signatures. Only 4,726 of the signatures need to be valid to move forward, according to a report.

Psilocybin, the active ingredient so to speak in psychedelic mushrooms, has been known to help with a number of problems, including psychological stress and opioid addiction. However, the substance is still considered a Schedule I category drug, right up there with LSD and heroin.

“We want people kept out of prison, families kept together,” Decriminalize Denver campaign director Kevin Matthews said. “That was the main motivation for this.”

Decriminalizing marijuana really worked out for Denver and the entire state of Colorado. We’ll have to see about this.

KJ Sawka & Hi I’m Ghost Release New ‘Misfits’ EP On Kannibalen

Sat, 01/12/2019 - 21:19

At a show last night, a friend leaned over to me and mentioned, “You know, I feel like dubstep is getting way more punchy in 2019.” Now, punchy isn’t a technical term by any stretch of the imagination, but you still immediately know what it’s referring to. That heavy, relentless pounding bass and synth stab in a drop… you know what I’m talking about, don’t pretend you don’t.

Listening to the new Misfits EP from KJ Sawka and Hi I’m Ghost, out now on Kannibalen, that conversation came to mind. One of my favorite things about any KJ Sawka production are the clean drums, augmented by his decades playing drums for the likes of Pendulum, Destroid, and more. In that same vein, Hi I’m Ghost have proven time and again that they’re nothing to f*ck with. This relatively new pair of producers are absolute beasts in the studio, so it’s no surprise that tracks like “Misfits” and “WAT” are as bombastic as they turned out to be.

These aren’t early-hours dubstep tracks either; these are peak hours, sweaty faces and aching feet dubstep tunes that are sure to revive even the most weary headbanger and get them right back on that rail.

Check out Misfits from KJ Sawka and Hi I’m Ghost below.

Gammer’s Hardcore Flip Of “Zombie” Is Finally An Official Release

Sat, 01/12/2019 - 21:08

After more than a year of seeking out the elusive Gammer flip of Ran-D’s cover of The Cranberries’ “Zombie” (that was a mouthful), the edit finally sees an official release. Alongside a remix from Bassjackers, Gammer’s “Zombie” flip is now publicly available to the masses and we just can’t get enough.

Apart from Gammer himself playing it out, the flip was widely popularized by one of his good friends, Kayzo. Additionally, The Chainsmokers played it out with help from drummer Matt McGuire at Ultra 2018 for a particularly stunning display of theatricality, physicality, and lights.

Ran-D’s “Zombie” is a cover of the classic song of the same name from The Cranberries, released in 1993. The lyrics are known the world over, brought to life by lead singer Dolores O’Riordan’s uniquely Irish-tinged voice. Ran-D officially released his cover in June 2018.

Listen to the Gammer flip below.
