I’m not sure why, but it feels like it’s been a while since I’ve heard new music from Whethan. It’s ironic because he just put out a new track at the end of March. But personal feelings aside, he did just drop a new track today, and it’s with Jeremih, and it’s pure house fun.
Jeremih most recently offered his voice to dance music on RL Grime’s “Undo” with Tory Lanez, so his feature on this new Whethan tune is no small feat. Though, in fact, this track has been around “for a while now” says Whethan himself.
Whethan says, “I had been sitting on this track with Jeremih for a while now and explored every possible version of the song before landing on this one. I’ve been really inspired by a lot of house music and wanted to find a way to bring that into my world. It was important to me that I made something that people could really dance too. This is probably my favorite track to date and I’m just excited to show my fans where the future of my music is headed.”
Make no mistake, this is definitely a very easy track to dance to, bringing influences from house and Latin music into the mix for a sultry and sexy, groovy tune that just doesn’t let up.
Check it out below.
Whethan’s North American tour dates:
June 14-15: Quincy, WA @ Paradiso Festival
June 27-30: Rothbury, MI @ Electric Forest
July 14th: Louisville, NY @ Forecastle Festival
August 1-4: Chicago, IL @ Lollapalooza
September 19: Morrison, CO @ Red Rocks Amphitheatre (co-headline with Big Wild)

Outside of his career in music, Dimitri Thivaios, more commonly known as Dimitri Vegas in the dance music world, has been working diligently in film & TV. He’s previously appeared alongside Belgian film legend Jean-Claude Van Damme in action movie Lukas, featured in third feature film Patser from Moroccan directors Adil El Arbi & Bilall Falah, as well as taken voice over roles Disney’s blockbuster Big Hero 6 and Peter Parker in the animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse.

Kaskade is riding the Redux waves with a new, incredibly diverse volume, Redux 003 — perfect easy listening for your weekend.
The new album boasts some already familiar hits including “Fun” and “Tight,” each a secret weapon in their own right. Running 18 tracks deep, there’s plenty of new Kaskade material to discover as well. His deepest, most soulful underground productions are showing and we simply can’t get enough.
“Go Slow” with Gorgon City and Romeo is sure to be one of the brightest, burning stars from the collection, with its smooth, graceful composure. Compare that to the gritty booty work heard with “Dancin'” featuring LöKii, and you already have a feel for the kind of variety on Redux 003. Felix Cartal, BROHUG, Mr. Tape, Late Night Alumni and more keep the sound switching gears, but the vibes always remain on point.

Canada’s Ever After Music Festival is changing the game by allowing the possession and consumption of cannabis on-site. This is the first major music festival to do so across the country and accomplish what no major U.S. festival has done thus far.
On a smaller scale, festivals like Northern Nights in California will tested out the same kind of policy a month later. The main difference being cannabis will not be sold at Ever After — the festival is only allowing attendees to bring in their own product. Still, Ever After, located in Kitchener, ON, is a sizable guinea pig for the area.
In 2018, Canada legalized marijuana, so it only makes sense that festival culture would embrace the freedom to smoke down. Selling weed, however, is not allowed on festival grounds.
Below, Ever After details the full policy, which allows anyone 19+ to smoke in the designated smoking areas – cannabis cannot be used in areas where food or alcohol are also sold. Individuals are allowed to keep a ton of weed on their person — 10 grams per person in the festival and 28 grams per person at camp.
If you want to check out Ever After, the event has a killer lineup and goes down June 7 – 9.Ever After Cannabis Policy

Back in September last year, Diplo earmarked the end of Major Lazer in 2019. Speaking to Complex, he revealed, “Next year marks our last album, so we got a lot of stuff in between now and then.”
In the meantime, we’ve gotten a full album from LSD, new music from Diplo solo, including a country collaboration with Cam and a house EP, and even a short Major Lazer EP focusing more on African artists and beats. But now, we have the first single from the forthcoming fourth and final Major Lazer album.
Out today is “Can’t Take It From Me” with Skip Marley, co-produced and co-written with Nitti Gritti. It has the same qualities of any great Major Lazer tune, with Marley’s soft and easy voice coupled with some anthemic horns and a delectable melody. As we’re already in May, it’s safe to expect a lot more Major Lazer soon before the album drops this year.
Check out “Can’t Take It From Me” from Major Lazer with Skip Marley below.

Yesterday saw the craze of a new Snapchat filter – Genderswaps for men and women – taking over the internet. Even if you haven’t used Snapchat in over a year, like myself, you probably opened up the app, dusted off the cobwebs, and took a selfie.
The fad wasn’t lost on some of our favorite DJs, including Habstrakt, Whipped Cream, Ekali, Cray, and more. Scroll down to see some of the better genderswaps, and finish it off with Herobust who has a very confident statement for the world.

Rolling Loud is going down in Miami right now and a “false alarm,” which we can surmise as a rumored shooting, sent many fans running from the venue.
Although they have confirmed that there is no actual danger, many fans in the Twitter responses are demanding refunds after fleeing the event. We’re not entirely sure what triggered this, but will keep this post updated as we find out more.
Attendees, you’re welcome back in now!
Anyone who ran out of the venue who still has their wristband on can re enter through security at the festival gates

Every producer or musician has to start somewhere. For DM2, this is his third start. After trying his hand at a solo project and then a duo, he’s back with a new name, new brand, and new sound.
For his debut single, “Shred The Darkness,” the influence is clear. A gritty, rock-influenced guitar riff starts things off and builds in intensity, adding to a cheering crowd in the background and some light chopped vocals. When the drop finally hits, it unleashes a cascading synth pattern and heavy bass that’s definitely fresh and is clearly intended to try and upset the status quo.
DM2’s motto? “Music is a drug and I’m here to get the world high.” Hard to argue with that.
Check out “Shred The Darkness” below and stay tuned for more from DM2 in 2019!

RL Grime‘s latest body of work has just released in its purest form. NOVA Pure contains all the makings of the original NOVA album, all in instrumental form. Needless to say, it’s simply exquisite.
NOVA landed as one of our Top Albums of 2018, coming in at No. 2. Boasting collaborations with Jeremih & Tory Lanez, Miguel, Julia Michaels, Chief Keef, Ty Dolla $ign, Daya, 24hrs and more, the record took on multiple musical dispositions, track-by-track.
As a strictly instrumental release, the vibe changes up drastically. Lose the lyrics, strip back the vocal layers, and it’s amazing to hear the intricacies in RL Grime’s produced work. The gaps are filled in with elements that might have gone unnoticed before.
RL Grime previously spoke about the meaning behind this album:
NOVA came from obsessive ideation on growth, and on transition. The art, and stories, and the moments that inspired me through this record tend to explore this as well. The feeling of leaving behind what was, and of welcoming the foreign. Throughout the process I had this vision of a “nova”, or of a star no bigger than a person launching from earth into outer space and expanding endlessly until its light was all that we could see. That’s the feeling I get from these records, infinite light.

SLANDER has put some serious work into their latest single and accompanying music video for “Love is Gone” with Dylan Matthew. The cinematic song rocks deep, melodic dubstep vibes and a moving lyrical performance that sparks all kinds of emotion.
In this day and age, much of the music we consume is fleeting. Bangers might fade, but the raw passion and creativity that “Love is Gone” projects gives the track some true staying power. From the lightest piano notes through the most intense riser and back down into gorgeous, melodic bliss, SLANDER and Dylan Matthew absolutely slay this collaboration in every way.
The ethereal music video years in the making follows a lone spaceman on a journey through worlds in search of that one metaphorical star. While this takes place somewhere far, far away — the message is very much down to Earth and relatable.
SLANDER provide their own statement that introduces the release:
‘Love Is Gone’ is our biggest endeavor to date. The accompanying video has been in the works for the past 3 years and is comprised entirely of movie level CGI. Just the rendering process took over 3 months to complete. We are thrilled to finally give our fans a glimpse into this new universe we are creating for them, which comprises our new show visuals, this video, and a secret future project. We’ve been tight lipped about all of this until now and we are so happy to finally reveal some pieces to the story. This one has been a long time coming and we can’t wait to slowly reveal what’s next! Shout out to Roboto for absolutely crushing the video and showing us that there really is no limit on human creativity if enough time and effort is laid down. Also we would like to thank our long-time collaborator Dylan Matthew for once again delivering a stellar vocal performance. At this moment, we are the most proud we have ever been of a project, and we hope you guys enjoy the fruits of our labor.

North Dakota just quietly became the 25th state to decriminalize weed.
As Marijuana Moment and advocacy group NORML have pointed out, a bill decriminalizing marijuana was signed into law last week. For whatever reason, this happened with little-to-no media coverage.
This is by no means legalization for North Dakota residents, but the penalties for possession are far less. Moving forward, first-time possession up to a half an ounce is no long classified as a criminal demeanor. Instead, a minor infraction like this would carry a fine instead of jail time.
One Redditor points out that full legalization has been on North Dakota’s ballot multiple times. Some believe the decriminalization is an effort to stall or sway the push for legalization.Comment from discussion BEEFTANK_Jr’s comment from discussion "North Dakota quietly decriminalized marijuana".
This comes days after Denver decriminalized magic mushrooms. Being the first state to legalize marijuana, Colorado has always been ahead of the rest.
Listening to new tunes when hitting the road is the best feeling. When the windows are down and your stereo booms with a playlist or album of your own selection, a mundane drive can become an instant mini-concert. Fortunately, Boombox Cartel have teamed up with MadeinTYO for a song that captures the appreciation of getting a new car and riding it with pride in “NEW WIP.”
The latest single from Mad Decent, “NEW WIP” is trap excellence that boasts in a big way. Lurking horns and MadeinTYO’s flex greet listeners with the kind of packed 808 beats Boombox Cartel have enticed bass heads with. MadeinTYO raps about a luxurious lifestyle of classic Ferraris and exquisite seafood including a silly simile about losing weight like Kelly Price. But the production gives the Atlanta native enough space to air his unbridled flair and head-nodding flow as hype for the upcoming drop.
Adding sprinkles of dubstep, the drops in “NEW WIP” are heavy without losing focus of the rhythm. The chorus takes a cut from MadeinTYO’s earlier verse to build the drop back up again in a fitting way; it truly showcases how well-oiled this collaboration is. In a lot of ways, this song reminds of Cartel’s collaboration with dancehall micman Taranchyla “Dem Fraid” where the featured vocalist serves as the hype to the production’s impending drops. In short, “NEW WIP” shows that Boombox Cartel can work wonders with any vocalist that come their way.
Check out “NEW WIP” from Boombox Cartel and MadeinTYO out now on digital retailers and streaming websites.

We stan a parent who stands up for their kid. Recently, Whipped Cream’s dad, Bob Cecil, recently dove into the comments on his daughter’s Instagram to fend off some naysayers doubting her ability to really DJ.
“Is your set prerecorded?” asked @cold_world_arsonist. “U do so much jumping around how do u stay on point?”
Clearly, Bob didn’t take kindly to someone assuming his daughter wasn’t putting in the prerequisite work. He responded: “most tracks she plays will [be] from 10 sec to maybe longest 30 secon. It’s all done through beat matching feeling matching to keep the show at max throughout. The movement and being [in] shape comes from 12 years of competitive figure skating.”
Damn, Bob just laid down the truth.
Honestly, I’ve been a fan of Whipped Cream since I first saw her at HARD Summer 2017, opening up the Green tent at 12:30 and packing it out. Seeing her rise has been nothing short of enjoyable, and I’m glad she has the support from her parents, as well, to keep her motivated.
If you’re interested in seeing Whipped Cream live to see what all the fuss is about, check her tour schedule here.

If you’ve been on the internet today, you’ve likely seen friends and acquaintances posting photos of them as the opposite sex — men posing as women, and women posing as men. Once again, Snapchat has found a way to temporarily boost their monthly users by introducing an engaging new filter.
Finding and using it is simple.
Open Snapchat, make sure the camera is facing you. Tap the Smiley icon next to the capture button to access the available filters. The male genderswap is a smiley face with beard, while the female genderswap is woman’s face with red lips and lush eyelashes.

The 4th annual Bonanza Campout in Heber, Utah has been canceled.
The event boasting DJ Snake, GRiZ, Big Wild, Whethan and more on the lineup will no longer take place June 21 – 23 as planned. Organizers cite “being denied the necessary licensing and permits” from the county and the Utah DABC as reasoning behind the cancellation.
The music festival says there’s “no possible way to relocate and still provide both artists and attendees with the same level of production and fan experience that Bonanza Campout has become known for.”
The post below explains that lodging purchases for Bonanza Campout 2019 are in the process of being refunded.
As for the future of Bonanza, organizers hope to bring the experience back in 2020.
Stay tuned for more information.Bonanza Campout 2019

Sensu just dropped a new single “Escape” last week, and now she’s back with the official music video for the piece.
To accurately convey the tone of the track, Sensu chose to portray it alongside a group of people, each sacrificing a part of themselves to some higher being. It cuts back and forth between isolation on a raft or grouped together in a room full of white — but no matter what, it always seems as though they’re trapped.
It’s admittedly difficult to discern any clear meaning from just the video. It ends with the recurring “main” character, I suppose you could call her, gauging her own eyes out, while the rest of the group seems incapacitated in the raft. Have they finally “escaped”? Hard to say, but it seems open to interpretation.
Check out the music video below.

“Old Town Road” is one of the most played out and remixed tracks at the moment, and this one gives Diplo a run for his money. We say that with a hint of sarcasm — certainly not meant to devalue the work of producer and YouTuber KNOH, who remade the song using only horse noises.
Why you ask? Because why not. It’s 2019 and we have Billy Ray Cyrus out here teaming up with Lil Nas X and Diplo. Now, KNOH has reconstructed the track using choice horse samples and crafty methods with Ableton Live instruments and effects. This is the horse-only version of the popular track we all deserve.
KNOH explains in the video’s description, “I decided to remake Old Town Road by Lil Nas using only horses samples! Horses are surprisingly musical.”

Paris Hilton and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike just unleashed their cheeky new single, “Best Friend’s Ass.” Say what you want about it, but it sounds like they have a sure hit on their hands that’s suitable for the club, the main stage and the radio.
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike find a sweet spot between clubland and mainstream as the one and only Paris Hilton delivers the topline to sweet, socialite perfection. Matched with a fat bassline, “B.F.A.” is catchy AF — the type of song that will get stuck in your head, whether you want it to or not. Not to mention, it’s truly a best friend’s anthem.
There’s a slew of writers on the track including AObeats, JAX, and Mark Johns, and of course the iconic EDM duo themselves. This marks Paris Hilton’s first return to music since her 2006 debut album Paris, and she’s working it with some insane talent on this one.
Love it, or love to hate it — “B.F.A.” has arrived. Next up, they’re working on a music video featuring Kim Kardashian and her famous derrière. Stay tuned.Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike – “Best Friend’s Ass” feat. Paris Hilton

It’s always nice when two friends reunite in a shared field and create something exciting. ËMMË and PON CHO went to high school together, and even played in a bunch of bands together, and now they’re back collaborating on a wild new trap tune, “Yule.”
For PON CHO especially, this tune is special as it marks the end of a 3-year hiatus. To produce it with a friend like ËMMË is surely icing on the cake. “Yule” is a high-energy trap tune with some noticeable space elements, taking this track up to the stratosphere and beyond.
Writes ËMMË, “We used to have this whacky music teacher who would dress us up as the Blues Brothers and make us perform – this tune is dedicated to him.”
Check out “Yule” below, out now!
