EXCLUSIVE: Sources Confirm Ultra Contract With City Of Miami Is Signed

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 20:19

Local Miami media has been ferocious about reporting on Ultra Music Festival’s lack of signed contract with the city. The festival responded to reports of a lack of contract in November, stating, “Ultra’s agreement was previously ratified in July and, as is customary, we are working with the City Administration on some final touches.”

Still, the Herald doubled down on the lack of contract just last week, while also reporting on a lawsuit filed by the Downtown Neighbors Alliance. Now, sources have confirmed with Your EDM that Ultra and the city of Miami have officially signed a contract.

With the news earlier today that Madeon would be added to the lineup, along with Kygo last week, and an imminent phase 2 lineup announcement, Ultranauts should have no worries that this year is going along as planned.

See the complete phase 1 lineup and get tickets here.

10 DJs With Awesome Tattoos

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 18:58

When I was in high school, I never would have dreamed of getting a tattoo. Now, I have 11 — 7 of which I got just last year. Part of it probably has to do with growing up, maybe it has something to do with being a millennial, but there’s definitely a part of it that has to do with being surrounded by people who also have them.

Tattoos aren’t new to musicians — hip hop, metal, and rock musicians have famously sported tattoos for decades. Electronic musicians, too, are known to sport ink to varying degrees and varying qualities. Some get maybe a couple to signify special events or people in their lives, others get addicted and end up doing full sleeves on one or both arms, maybe neck or face tats, often hand tats too if it gets that far.

Below are 10 DJs who have used their body as a canvas, displaying interests close to their heart (Varien, Figure), getting whatever randomly pops into their head one day (Cray), or even as a punchline (Ghastly).

Take a look and see if there’s anything that inspires you to get one of your own!

FDA Expands Access to MDMA for PTSD Treatment

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 17:52

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has officially Expanded Access to make it easier for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients to receive MDMA therapy. The popular recreational drug has been known to be extremely effective for treating PTSD.

Under the FDA’s Expanded Access program, 10 sites across the United States can apply for approval to administer the drug. This, of course, must happen under a doctor’s supervision. Starting off, 50 patients will be allowed MDMA-assisted psychotherapy treatment to gain real world results.

MORE: MDMA Therapy Sees 76% Success Rate In PTSD Patients

Since MDMA became illegal in 1985, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) has worked toward reversing the ban. The organization has put millions of dollars toward clinical trials, with the new goal of making MDMA prescription by 2021.

MAPS founder and executive director Rick Doblin said of the recent progress:

We commend FDA for recognizing the great unmet medical need of PTSD by allowing access to MDMA-assisted psychotherapy on a compassionate basis for people with treatment-resistant PTSD. We are delighted to begin generating real-world evidence about this potential new treatment.

Madeon Returns To Ultra Music Festival For First Time Since 2013

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 16:08

While we’re sure Ultra Music Festival still has an official Phase 2 on the way, they’re dropping some major artists one by one first. Last week, the Miami festival revealed Kygo would be making his return to the festival for the first time since his (brief) surprise performance on the main stage in 2017. Today, it’s Madeon making his first time back at the festival since 2013.

Madeon has done a lot in the past 7 years, releasing two albums and touring both of them relentlessly, as well as performing Shelter live with Porter Robinson. Bringing his Good Faith Live show to Ultra will be an exhilarating experience.

This year’s lineup is shaping to be one of the festival’s best yet, with Gesaffelstein, Flume, Zedd, Major Lazer, Adam Beyer b2b Cirez D, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, and now Kygo and Madeon, and more expected in Phase 2.

Bringing his kaleidoscope of sounds to the Live Stage at #Ultra2020 this March, @madeon is back for the first time in 7 years ✨ pic.twitter.com/8WFc4H0SBj

Autograf’s “Ain’t Deep Enough” Receives Chill Remix From Bonsai Mammal

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 13:34

Autograf are in the middle of unveiling their debut album, but they’re already dropping remixes for it. Their lead single “Ain’t Deep Enough” is a fantastic pop house tune that’s been tearing up dance floors since it’s release.

Their good friend Bonsai Mammal has taken the original and flipped it on it’s head turning it into the perfect song to chill out to. The dichotomy between the two is present from the onset of the remix, but each is enjoyable in it’s own right. Have a listen to the new chill remix below and keep your eyes peeled for more Autograf music soon.

Calvin Harris Announced As Creamfields Headliner For 2nd Year In a Row

Tue, 01/21/2020 - 12:52

Having already announced The Chainsmokers as headliner for 2020, Creamfields has just revealed the next two headliners for this year’s festival: Calvin Harris and Bicep.

Calvin headlined the festival in 2019 as well, bringing in one of the largest crowds to the Arc stage the whole weekend. (Something he’s been known for doing in the past.) He’ll be taking headline duties on Saturday while The Chainsmokers handle Friday and Bicep Live will cover Sunday.

The timing is impeccable with the announcement of two new singles and a new project out this Friday, called Love Regenerator. The full scope of the project is currently unknown, but Calvin will be playing with some new sounds (for him) so it might take some getting used to.

With Coachella and Creamfields on lock, and new music on the way, could we finally see the day that Calvin Harris tours once again? He’s been locked into Vegas residencies and the one-off festival performance here and there, and hasn’t done a real tour in years, so it would truly be something special.

Check back Friday to listen to “Hypnagogic (I Can’t Wait)” and “CP-1.” Check out some of his set from Creamfields 2019 below.

Billie Eilish Talks Next Album & Reveals She’s “Terrified” for Upcoming Documentary

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 22:38

Billie Eilish has taken over and she’s only just begun…

In 2018, she embarked on her Where’s My Mind Tour, dropped captivating singles “Bitches Broken Hearts” and “You Should See Me in a Crown,” and landed on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list. In 2019, she released her first studio album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, debuted at No. 1, becoming the first 2000s-born artist to do so, and dethroned Lil Nas X’s record-breaking “Old Town Road” with her smash single “Bad Guy.”

In 2020, there’s no stopping…

The pop star recently caught up with the media at iHeartRadio‘s ALTer EGO event. She revealed her 2020 plans, which involve working on a followup album. From the sounds of it, she’s taking her time and making it right.

Here’s what she had to say about her sophomore album: “This year, no, but I will be making it this year… But next few years? It’s coming. When it’s made. It’s not made yet.”

And her upcoming documentary, which may debut as soon as 2020: “I’ve seen no part of it. I’m terrified. I’m freaked out. They’ve been filming since like July of 2018… Who has that much footage of them that they’ve never seen? I’m terrified.”

On this night, Eilish performed alongside Coldplay, the Black Keys, and Blink-182, among others. See clips straight from the red carpet below.

Eptic Talks About New Music, Evolution as a Producer, and His Massive 2019 [Interview]

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 22:35

As we embark into 2020 and look back at the past decade, you would be hard pressed to find a dubstep producer with a more solid resume than Eptic. Michael Bella first burst onto the scene with a self titled EP in 2011 before making his debut on the venerable dubstep label Never Say Die with his Like A Boss EP in 2012. Ever since then, the Belgian DJ/producer has been dropping a steady stream of singles and EPs, cementing his place atop the VIP list in dubstep.

2019 was perhaps Eptic’s biggest year yet as he released two massive singles on Monstercat, “Flesh & Blood” and “Power”, and collaborated on two of the biggest dance hits of the year, “Southside” with DJ Snake and “Let it Go” with Dillon Francis. On top of that, Michael also wrapped up his Flesh & Blood Tour with Tynan. We recently got the chance to sit down and chat with Michael about how Eptic has exploded over the past couple of years, his evolution as a producer, what he’s got in store for 2020, and his appreciation for his fans. Here’s what he had to say.

Hey Michael, thanks for chatting with us. It’s been a huge year for you, tell us about some of your highlights in 2019 and what stands out about the year for you?

“Of course, my pleasure! 2019 has been the most hectic year in my career by far and that’s expressing it lightly, so much has happened. If I had to narrow it down I’d say collaborating with DJ Snake was my favourite thing that happened, since it’s always been a goal of mine to work with him. Apart from that, coming out during Dillon Francis’s set to premiere our new track blew my mind, I couldn’t stop laughing once I got off stage.”

You’ve been on the Flesh & Blood tour with Tynan, how has the tour been? What’s been different or special about this one?

“It’s been amazing! First of all, I love touring with Tynan. He’s pretty calm like me but knows how to party at the same time which is the perfect balance. He’s also an insane producer and DJ. As far as the tour itself goes, the thing that made it special coming from my end were the visuals.

I really try to push the visual aspect of my music more and more each tour, the end goal of all this is to do a high end production tour with a unique, self designed visual show. What made it special for me in a different aspect is the fact that so many die hard fans show up to these shows. I’ve met so many people who made me crazy artwork, figurines and have Eptic tattoos. It’s nuts.”

You’ve collaborated with some huge artists this year including Dillon Francis and DJ Snake. What was it like having some of the biggest names in dance music so eager to work with you recently?

“It’s pretty surreal, it still makes me smile when I think about it. I never thought these kind of names would want to work with me. I was always convinced I’d be stuck in the dubstep realm and it’s honestly a dream come true for me to work with these people.”

Tell me about some of your most recent releases, you had the Flesh & Blood EP and “Bloodlust VIP,” how did these projects come about?

“I usually try and do an EP or big project every year. Flesh & Blood took a long time because I wanted to push myself creatively and not just make another dubstep EP. The reason I experiment with so many different genres is because I eventually want to work my way up to an album that’s memorable and stands out. ‘Bloodlust VIP’ was actually my tour intro and I never planned on releasing it. People seemed to really like it online and Skism asked me to release it for the Never Say Die 10 year compilation, so here we are!”

What more would you like to accomplish as an artist and producer?

“My main goal is to work with more big artists, do an album one day and do a high production tour with an absurd stage design.”

What can fans look forward to in 2020? Any new collabs? Tell us about Rampage 2020?

“I have a new single coming out in a couple of weeks. Valentino Khan and I are finishing up a new song at the moment too that i’m really happy about. Apart from that I’m collaborating with a couple of massive artists this year that I can’t say too much about yet… Super stoked to play rampage again! The crowd and production of this show is always insane and I always have the best time since it’s only 20 mins away from my house in Belgium.”

What’s been a special moment you’ve had in your career as an artist/producer?

“I’d say the thing that meant the most to me this year is the feeling that I can work with almost anyone I want in the EDM scene. The thing i still care about the most is making cool music with cool people. Also the fan support this year has been unreal, all the tattoos and things people make blow my mind.”

Check out Eptic’s “Bloodlust VIP” out now on Never Say Die Records. Upcoming North American tour dates below as well.

February 15 – Winter Wipeout 6 – Reno, NV
February 21 – Bill Graham Civic Auditorium w/ Svdden Death – San Francisco, CA
March 20 – Beyond Wonderland – San Bernardino, CA

Diplo Will Appear On ‘Price Is Right’ For Music Week

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 22:19

Daytime game shows have been around for decades, but they still heavily rely on gimmicks from time to time to bring in new (often younger) viewers. This week for Music Week on ‘Price Is Right,’ the show will feature — you guessed it! — musicians, including Meghan Trainor and Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz and Patrick Stump.

Anderson Paak already appeared on the show today, and Diplo is also slated to appear on the program.

The episodes have already been filmed are are rolling out this week. Check out previews from the episode with Diplo below, as he’s called up by Thomas Wesley to the brief confusion of the audience.

STUDY: Our Dancing Styles Are Unique Like Fingerprints

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 18:27

One of the greatest things about going to EDM shows is the freedom we have to express ourselves through dance. Whether you like to headbang on the rail, shuffle with friends toward the back, or get down in the crowd — dancing celebrates our individuality.

So much so, that a new study reveals our dancing styles are incredibly unique, like fingerprints. According to researchers from the University of Jyväskylä in Finland, every single person has their own way of dancing, which can be detected down to the littlest movements.

Researchers originally set out to learn if computers could identify the genre of music people were dancing to based on their style of dance. What they found was much more powerful, as 73 dancers took the floor. They were instructed to dance to various genres (rap, reggae, blues, country, electronic dance, jazz, and metal) in whatever way felt natural.

As it turned out, the algorithm wasn’t so great at detecting genre, spitting out correct answers only 30% of the time. However, it could detect who exactly was dancing out of the 73 participants with 94% success.

“It seems as though a person’s dance movements are a kind of fingerprint,” co-author and data analyst Dr. Pasi Saari explained. “Each person has a unique movement signature that stays the same no matter what kind of music is playing.”

There’s still much to be learned about how humans interact with music, but these findings are simply amazing.

This researched is published in The Journal of New Music Research — view the full study here.

Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence Co-Wrote This Song Off Mac Miller’s Posthumous Album ‘Circles’

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 16:04

Disclosure‘s Guy Lawrence co-wrote a track off Mac Miller‘s newly released posthumous album Circles, and he’s opening up the bittersweet experience.

In the posts below, Guy describes working with Mac as both a “honor” and a “privilege.” Together, the two spent a “great day” in the studio a few years back and wrote “Blue World,” a bright, synth-filled future bass production over which the hip hop legend flows, seemingly effortlessly.

Finally, the song comes to light…



Guy opens up in a tweet below: “Like so much of Mac’s music, the meaning of this song has changed so much for me since his passing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it with such a sweet, kind & talented man.”

Yesterday would have been Mac Miller’s 28th birthday.

Listen to Circles in full here.

Mac Miller – Blue World (prod. Guy Lawrence)

A few years ago, I had the honour and privilege of writing some music with the late great Mac Miller. We had a great day in the studio and wrote a song together called ‘Blue World’ which I’m delighted to say is out now. pic.twitter.com/Ygejmbvwiw

Like so much of Mac’s music, the meaning of this song has changed so much for me since his passing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it with such a sweet, kind & talented man.
Rest in peace Mac,

Sandro Cavazza Announces New Version Of “Forever Yours” With Kygo As Avicii Tribute

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 15:09

Avicii collaborator Sandro Cavazza has announced a new version of his unreleased collaboration with the late Swedish producer, “Forever Yours,” finished with the help of Kygo, will be officially released this Friday.

At the Avicii tribute concert late last year, during Cavazza’s set, before playing the song, he addressed the crowd: “So this [is a] song, a song that I was working on with Tim, but never got to finish. So for tonight, for this very night, me and [Kygo] put it together for you guys. It’s called ‘Forever Yours.’”

Now, that version will be officially released. Cavazza wrote on social media:

This version of Forever Yours is a Tribute to Tim that me and Kygo have put together to honor what he has meant to both of us. The music we made together has changed my life and my perspective of music. He was Kygo’s biggest Idol and biggest inspiration and that’s what has made this Tribute possible.

We’re releasing this song together with Tim’s family and the proceeds from the track will go to the nonprofit Tim Bergling Foundation which benefits organizations that support mental health issues, suicide prevention and education, wildlife conservation and other issues that Tim had an interest in and passion for.

You can pre-save the song here.

Mon, 01/20/2020 - 12:44

A little less than two weeks ago, Calvin Harris was teasing new music within the next “couple” of weeks. Sure enough, after teasing some new sounds a week ago, he’s announced a “new project” with two new singles out this Friday.

His use of “project” is a big ambiguous, leaving it up to interpretation (for now) whether he means some sort of new alias or a new album; either way, it’s called Love Regenerator. The two singles coming out this Friday are titled, “Hypnagogic (I Can’t Wait)” and “CP-1.”

Check out some new sounds he’s been testing here.

Start of a new project for me this Friday! Hypnagogic (I Can’t Wait) and CP-1 are arriving on the 24th pic.twitter.com/OKlbV76fYr

Daft Punk’s Debut Album ‘Homework’ Turns 23 [LISTEN AGAIN]

Sun, 01/19/2020 - 15:09

Daft Punk‘s debut studio album Homework celebrates 23 years!

Though the duo consisting of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo didn’t technically break out until their second album, Discovery — Homework best celebrates the project’s early roots. The record, which released on January 20, 1997 via Virgin Records and Soma Quality Recordings, showcased Daft Punk in their rawest form, before they blew up.

It should be noted, Homework came prior to the producers’ transformation into robots, a groundbreaking concept they first introduced in 1999. Before there ever was “One More Time” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” — this was the sound that defined Daft Punk.

Listen below to Homework in its entirety, featuring iconic tracks like “Da Funk,” “Oh Yeah,” and “Around The World.” Let us know your favorite in the comments!
