Justin Blau is no stranger to EDM heads. Some remember him from his earliest days of mashups and bootlegs. Others remember his earliest singles on labels like Revealed Recordings, Armada, and Musical Freedom. But most people have become familiar with the last two years of material 3LAU has delivered with his non-profit dance music label Blume where he’s released his debut album Ultraviolet (2018), a remix album, and many collaborations and singles. He was made a track in the Astralwerks compilation Ninjawerks Vol. 1 called “Game Time” featuring online streaming giant Ninja.
But in a music industry where fierce competition and fickle trends are omnipresent, 3LAU has continued to work on his music and his live performances with a grand sense of vigor. For example, his most recent set at Ultra Music Festival had the American 28-year-old pack 90 songs in a full 90-minute set. “It’s the first time I’ve played at Ultra in four years,” said 3LAU, just after finishing his set at the Worldwide Stage. “It was unbelievable! I got to play a lot of new music. I played like six new songs.”
It seems like no genre is outside his purview when it comes to his DJ sets. Jumping between electro house, deep house, trap, drum and bass, and progressive house, 3LAU appears to effortlessly mix his own new and never before heard songs with many nostalgia blasters and drops twists. “Everyone responded really well,” 3LAU said. “That makes me super happy. I’m just pumped that we did it and glad that everyone enjoyed the new stuff.
One of the newest songs 3LAU played during his set was his collaboration with Justin Caruso and Iselin titled “Better With You”. The song is a pop-dance fusion featuring boisterous energy and a captivating rhythm. According to 3LAU himself, it was a collaboration he was really happy to see released.
“Justin actually wrote some ideas with the vocals and sent them to me,” 3LAU said. “I just kind of finished it off. [Caruso] killed it. It’s an amazing song and I’m really stoked that it’s out in the world.
But outside of his career in the music industry, 3LAU has become known for his compassion and giving back. As mentioned earlier, his record label is the first of its kind non-profit dance label where all releases are dedicated to charity. He’s also worked with Pencils of Promise and “Fuck Cancer” F C Foundation raising hundreds of thousands of dollars and making music an integral part of his charitable spirit.
“I’m hoping that my fans will pick the next charity,” 3LAU said. “And that will be coming soon.”
Seeing as there’s many new IDs deep in his latest set at Ultra Music Festival and as he has released new material already with his latest single “Better With You,” well have to wait and see what 3LAU has in stored for the rest of 2019.

If you’re needing some help getting hyped for the weekend, we got you covered with an electrifying new single from France’s very own Vorden, teaming up with Vooks, for “You Don’t Know”. To come up with this concept, they were inspired by the 2000’s vibes of David Guetta and Daft Punk they grew up with. The challenge was then to turn this into a fresh contemporary track. The minimalist, four to the floor, future-house influenced drop succeeds at it, and makes it a perfect weapon for clubs as well as festivals.
Trust me, the minute you press play you’ll want to start dancing to this one. “You Don’t Know” deserves to be in your playlist. Listen below!

Avicii’s posthumous album TIM is due out June 10, and today the world gets the second single from the album, following the first, “SOS,” last month. The new song, “Tough Love,” features Agnes, Vargas & Lagola in a beautiful Indian-influenced duet.
Avicii has never been one to shy away from challenging popular or expected styles, and this track is no different. Much like his song “Wake Me Up,” which was initially widely panned and went on to become a worldwide hit, Avicii had an innate ability to see beyond current trends and see what we all loved about music in the first place.
“Tough Love” may not be the Avicii song we wanted, but it’s the one we need.

Diplo continues his country kick and takes us behind-the-scenes of Stagecoach with his new music video for “So Long” featuring Cam.
Many of us will instantly recognize the festival grounds and Ferris wheel signature of Coachella, but that’s also where they throw the massive country event, which Diplo recently played. Stagecoach doesn’t look too much different than Coachella, but the soundtrack is entirely different. “So Long” is the vibe.
The DJ/producer already has his country name, Thomas Wesley, on lock. Here, he demonstrates he can fit right into the lifestyle by crushing beer cans, tearing around in golf carts, rocking camo and a cowboy hat.
In addition to his collaborator on this track, the new music video features cameos from Billy Ray Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Guy Fieri and more. Keep your eyes peeled!Diplo – “So Long” feat. Cam

This past weekend, Swedish House Mafia reunited for three sold-out nights at Stockholm’s Tele2 Arena, breaking the venue’s attendance record with over 115,000 fans enjoying the shows.
From reports, it was everything fans wanted and more, with old classics and even some new music. However, one of the most impressive parts of the show was undoubtedly that stellar stage, a massive production featuring a 177 foot long and 55 foot high screen, a vast floating stage, three giant circular lighting rings creating Swedish House Mafia’s signature logo and three huge circles of fire that were suspended above the packed crowd.
Fans can catch Swedish House Mafia this year as they bring their incredible live show all over the world. Visit swedishhousemafia.com for additional info, and watch for more from Swedish House Mafia coming soon.

After 17 years, the UK grime/rap group Foreign Beggars has made the decision to go their separate ways.
Foreign Beggars, along with Virus Syndicate, has been one of the most iconic grime rappers in dance music, gaining features on tracks with Black Sun Empire, Alix Perez, Dirtyphonics, Flux Pavilion, Noisia, FuntCase, Skrillex, Snails, Trolley Snatcha, and more. Their collaborative project with Noisia, I Am Legion, also spawned legendary tracks like “Make Those Move” and “Choosing for You.”
Members Orifice Vulgatron, Metropolis, and DJ Nonames posted the announcement today across social media. Foreign Beggars have released seven studio albums since 2003, and will release one more before the end of the year, their final record.
See their full statement below.

It’s been nearly a year since FISHER released his massive hit “Losing It,” which has earned him more festival spots than he can count, as well as a GRAMMY nomination. Now, for his first release of 2019, FISHER offers up “You Little Beauty,” a down to Earth simple house tune with all the FISHER embellishments we’ve come to love.
But when you have a track like “Losing It,” it’s a bit of a double-edged sword. It nets you a lot of followers and fame, but leaves you with a huge task of putting out something bigger next. Is “You Little Beauty” that song? Hard to say, but personally, I don’t think so. It’s a pretty simple house beat and it has some flourishes that we’d expect from FISHER, but ultimately it’s a party house song.
That also isn’t to say that FISHER is a modern day da Vinci. We don’t expect him to push the genre forward with innovative productions; he’s the producer we love to hate, the frat party hero, the hilarious Aussie. And “You Little Beauty” does the job its meant to do, so maybe it’s on me to just lighten up a bit.
Either way, FISHER’s first release and his first song since “Losing It,” “You Little Beauty,” is out now.

I’ll be the first to admit it’s weird to report on a celebrity or artist changing their social media profile picture. But in this day and age of such deliberate marketing, even an action as small or seemingly innocuous as that could mean a lot.
Of course, it helps when it’s paired with a tweet actually mentioning the change.
I kind of snapped with the pink avi

So clearly, Rezz has something coming — but as for what, it’s unclear.
That being said, we do know that Rezz has been working on a new EP, that’s now finished, so maybe it’s that? She’s also playing EDC next week, so maybe it’s something about her set, or visuals? Honestly, there’s a lot. But what we do know is to keep an eye on her Twitter and Instagram, because “somethin coming.”

The new EP from Dog Blood is coming, and it’s coming soon!
Skrillex has announced that the next EP from his musical partnership with Boys Noize is coming out May 31st, and there will be some collaborations with other artists on it. Of course, we expect the Ty Dolla $ign collab to be on there, but who else?
This is the first EP from the duo since Middle Finger Pt. 2 in 2013 and we’re desperately ready for more. No title yet, even, for this release, but we’ll get a tracklist and more soon enough.
Until then, we have a release date and that’s more than enough. Get ready!

It’s official! Longtime partners Matthew Koma and Hilary Duff are engaged! Koma proposed and Hilary said yes, and just look at that ring.
The two initially started dating in early 2017, though had a rough patch for a few months. But soon, they were dating again and the two announced in June 2018 they were expecting a child together. Banks Violet Bair was born October 25.
Koma is known for his vocals in many dance music tracks, most notably Zedd’s “Spectrum,” Tiësto’s “Wasted” and Flux Pavilion’s “Emotional.” Duff was, of course, the star of classic Disney channel program Lizzy McGuire; though, Duff also has her own music career and more.
Congratulations to these two!View this post on Instagram

Marshmello released “Light It Up” with Chris Brown & Tyga on April 25 and was immediately struck with criticism from across the musical landscape. Not least of all was the condemnation from band CHVRCHES, with whom Marshmello had just collaborated on their song “Here With Me.”
“We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior,” the band wrote. “That is not something we can or will stand behind.”
Brown responded, saying he wished they’d walk in front of a speeding bus.
Yet, throughout all the rigmarole, Marshmello stayed silent (true to his character). He finally broke his silence, though rather stealthily, when Justin Bieber posted on Instagram this past weekend with an image likening Brown to the combination of Michael Jackson and 2Pac.
It was a simple response from Marshmello, a comment on the image, just four “100” emojis. But it’s more than enough to show where he stands on the issue at hand. TJ Smith, a popular singer/songwriter, YouTuber, and Twitch stream replied, “This ain’t it, dude. Whoever’s running your social media, this post ain’t the one to be posting support for. You preach love. Nearly killing someone ain’t love.”
His comment currently has more than double the support that Marshmello’s original comment does.
Ultimately, it’s unlikely that Marshmello ever will make any sort of official statement regarding the controversy. But silence speaks volumes, as well.

Yesterday in a landmark vote, Denver chose to decriminalize magic mushrooms, and in effect, their active psychoactive ingredient, psilocybin. A naturally occurring plant, magic mushrooms have been used for centuries and are currently a federally classified Schedule I drug. However, so is cannabis, and that didn’t stop Colorado from becoming the first state to legalize that, either.
As much as we like to separate music from drugs, it’s no secret that electronic dance music and its fans like to make use of experience enhancing substances, including mushrooms. It doesn’t even stop with the fans though, as artists like Alison Wonderland have recently started espousing their love for the fungi.
Artists are celebrating the landmark decision as much as fans — see what some of the happy producers have to say below.

Denver just got a lot more… magical!
A measure just passed to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms, more commonly known as psychedelic or “magic” mushrooms, in the city of Denver. The same city that happens to boast one of the best venues on earth: Red Rocks.
Initiative 301 allows possession or use of magic mushrooms by individuals who are at least 21. Specific language prohibits “the city from spending resources to impose criminal penalties.” The idea behind this is to keep users out of jail.
“No one deserves to go to jail and lose their family, their livelihood, their jobs for something that has a therapeutic benefit,” said Decriminalize Denver campaign manager Kevin Matthews ahead of the vote.
According to the tally released on Wednesday, this measure passed by just 1,979 votes. The tally will be finalized and officially certified on May 16.
The federal government still classifies psilocybin mushrooms as an illegal drug. However, that hasn’t stopped Colorado in the past.
The state of Colorado became the first to allow recreational marijuana in January 2014. Now, Denver has become the first US city to decriminalize mushrooms. What a historic day!

Rather than wait for the City of Miami to convene tomorrow and offer its own vote to the fate of Ultra Music Festival, the festival dropped the hammer today and officially “voluntarily terminated” its license with the city.
Now, the question goes to where the festival will end up in 2020. In its letter, Ultra said, “We have been approached by many interested parties over the years with offers to host the festival at some very unique and impressive locales. One of these, however, has shined far above the others, and we look foward to making our home there for many years to come.”
According to the Miami Herald, that venue could be the Homestead-Miami Speedway, around 30 miles southwest of Miami.
Writes the Herald, “Their next stop might be Homestead. City Manager George Gretsas told the Herald he was made aware of conversations between Ultra and the Homestead-Miami Speedway.”
“It is our expectation that at some point, they will formally submit a proposal,” Gretsas said.
Of course, it still remains to be seen if such a prediction comes true, but the Speedway is a strong possibility among guesses for the next longterm Ultra venue.
