Mon, 03/11/2019 - 17:38

Chicago based duo Birthdayy Partyy have been taking the chitown scene by storm with a slew of remixes in a variety of dance music styles. In true Birthdayy Partyy fashion, the Chicago brothers are celebrating their very own birthday by dropping their flip of Bring Me The Horizon’s “Ouch” for free download. This devastating flip of the original band’s track throws much more of a dubstep flare and varied bass elements into the mix. Easily the best birthday present you could ask for!

Attendees Evacuated At Tomorrowland Winter Due To Sudden Snow Storm

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 16:41

The first edition of Tomorrowland Winter unofficially began this past Saturday, as attendees arrived as the French ski resort Alpe d’Huez. Unfortunately, today, around 250 attendees had to be temporarily evacuated from a ski track and bar at the resort after winds picked up and made conditions unsafe. Those evacuated also included artists.

“It snowed a lot this morning, but it was not a problem. When the wind intensified, we had to close the lifts. Some at the top of the track did not have skis with them because they only wanted to party in the bar. So we used six groomers to get them down, “said spokesman Debby Wilmsen.

Tomorrowland Winter is not cancelled, and doesn’t “officially” begin until Tuesday, or Wednesday when the main stage actually opens. Many of the attendees arrived early, however, to enjoy the resort’s amenities. The festival is expected to welcome nearly 25,000 attendees at its peak.

Winds are expected to die down by tomorrow. No injuries were reported.

SIAM Songkran Music Festival Debuts In 2019 With Yellow Claw, Q-Dance, Afrojack & More

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 16:18

Dance music has gone global, and if you haven’t traveled to experience any of the festivals outside Europe, Canada, or the US, you’re missing out.

The debut edition of SIAM Songkran Music Festival comes together as a brainchild of Thailand’s premiere festival organizers. The four-day fiesta has been set for April 12-15 at SHOW DC in Bangkok, Thailand. Celebrating across Songkran (i.e., Thai New Year), attendees have the opportunity to immerse themselves in what will be a mix of traditional culture and electronic music.

The festival’s lineup features top notch names from across the globe, uniquely catering to music enthusiasts of every genre including trap, big room, hard-style, Brazilian bass, and even the melodic progressive. For the first time in Thailand, renowned international labels will be hosting full days at SIAM Songkran.

Fans of trap music rejoice as the first day will feature a stage hosted by Barong Family, spearheaded by Yellow Claw, Moksi, Wiwek presents MAHA VANA, Crisis Era and Sihk. Ever since their launch back in 2014, the Dutch label has established themselves as one of the most influential in the genre with one of the music industry’s most loyal following.

Q-Dance takes over on second day with hardstyle veterans such as Headhunterz, Coone, Zatox, Villain and Darren Styles.

The third day is headlined by the return of the Afrojack, who is joined by the talented Seven Lions, Ekali, Ephwurd and Mija.

On the final day, April 15, global bass act Alok, fan-favorite Salvatore Ganacci and his dance moves, Sevenn, Fedde Le Grand and Liu takes to the stage to close the festivities with a bang.

Aside from the music, attendees will be able to partake in culture-based Siam workshops ranging from Muay Thai to cooking classes. Name one other music festival where you can learn how to cook Pad Thai… you can’t! The last zone “Thai Taste” is a curated food and crafts market that will allow festival-goers the chance to try out an array of exquisite Thai delicacies while shopping for trinkets to take home.

Tickets are currently on sale with the choice of General Admission and VIP. VVIP packages are also available for booking.

Porter Robinson Announces His Only World Live Set Of 2019 At Second Sky Festival

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 15:44

With only one artist left to unveil before the full Second Sky Festival lineup is revealed, Porter Robinson has just dropped a bomb on fans: Second Sky will be his only Worlds live set of 2019.

The news, while disappointing, isn’t entirely shocking. Worlds came out in 2014 and has been a live set staple of Porter’s ever since. But five years running and Virtual Self taking off, it makes sense that the Worlds live sets are slowing down.

The good news is that Porter doesn’t say its the last Worlds live set, though we’re not necessarily ruling that out, either. We don’t expect a new Porter Robinson album in 2019, but one for 2020 is certainly likely. The last original Porter Robinson music that was released was “Shelter,” his collaboration with Madeon in 2016.

According to the Second Sky website, this is the final artist announcement of the festival — no more blurred out names remain. (No Madeon?) Pre-sale begins Wednesday, March 13.

at second sky, i’m going to play my only worlds live set for the year!

Nightro’s new single “Universe” gets remixed by Pvper Plvnes [Sovereign Records]

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 14:50

Nightro have been making a name for themselves with their future bass and trap inspired pop releases. Their latest and greatest single titled “Universe” was just remixed by Los Angeles based producer Pvper Plvnes and it took me to another dimension! The drops keep you on the tip of your toes and it resembles the style of massive artist Marshmello. Sovereign Records in Miami are behind the single release and remain working closely with this talented remixer. “Universe” will surely get you in the mood to dance and possibly talk about the deeper meaning of life.

The remix is a fresh take on the original, adding a lot more bass to the mix and an unforgettable drop melody. Monika Santucci has a mesmerizing voice that grasps your attention and I can’t wait to hear her on future projects! Play this track at any party and you should witness an exciting response. Its unique configuration makes it a winner in my eyes. 2019 is the year for artists like Nightro and Pvper Plvnes to make their mark on the world. With memorable songs like this they will continue to do so.

For more tracks by Nightro, follow them on Spotify and stream ‘Universe’ on your preferred platform here!

Adventure Club Bring Out Craig Owens To Perform Chiodos Song & New Collab In Los Angeles

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 14:11

Adventure Club make it a point to hit the Los Angeles market at least once a year, dropping into Create in 2017 and Exchange LA in 2018. But 2019 marked their biggest performance in the City of Angels yet, with a headlining show at the historic Hollywood Palladium.

The Canadian duo kicked off their Death or Glory North America tour last Friday in Los Angeles with a sold out show, new production, and some seriously special guests. Apart from dropping their next single with Crankdat and Krewella for the crowd, Adventure Club also brought out former Chiodos singer Craig Owens to sing “The Words ‘Best Friend’ Become Redefined.”

Craig Owens is currently on tour with Getter and Midoca as badXchannels.

It wasn’t just the Chiodos song that came from Owens, however. He also stayed on stage to perform a new collaboration with Adventure Club and QUIX.

During the show, Adventure Club also brought out Atreyu drummer Brandon Saller to perform “Lip Gloss And Black” from their album Suicide Notes And Butterfly Kisses.

Adventure Club continue on tour this week and all through April, with a couple remaining dates in May. See dates and locations here.

Diplo Reveals Release Date Of Forthcoming LSD Album

Mon, 03/11/2019 - 13:03

The trio of Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo formed to create LSD in May 2018, releasing their debut single called “Genius.” Now in 2019 and five more singles in the bank, LSD is prepping to drop their debut album in just a month.

Entitled Labrinth, Sia, and Diplo Present… LSD, mirroring the title of Jack U’s debut album, Diplo’s project with Skrillex, the album is set for release on April 12.

View this post on Instagram

I got to make an album with my favorite musicians ???? @labrinth, @sia and diplo present… #LSD. Album out 4/12.

A post shared by diplo (@diplo) on Mar 11, 2019 at 7:57am PDT

Perhaps by coincidence (but probably not), April 12 is the first day of Coachella and also a day on which Diplo is playing. The smart money has both Labrinth and Sia coming out during his set to perform some of the jams from the album.

No pre-save or tracklisting has yet been made available, but it will likely include the group’s already-released singles.

Porter Robinson Announces J-Pop Group To Play Second Sky Music Festival

Sun, 03/10/2019 - 22:11

Porter Robinson is personally rolling out the lineup for his inaugural music festival Second Sky. So far, it’s shaping up to be magical af and he’s adding in some J-Pop flavor.

The producer is beyond excited to announce one of his favorite Japanese acts, Wednesday Campanella, on the bill. He describes frontwoman KOM_I as “such a fearless and infectious performer.”

“they first came to my attention after the buzz of their 2016 SXSW performance,” he explains in a post. “(there’s a lot of legends about it — the rumor was that her show got shut down by the police so she kept playing her show from the back of someone’s bike). the music is tough to classify — i recommend going to watch any of of their many spectacular music videos.”

Check out the lineup thus far and watch one of Wednesday Campanella’s more recent music videos below!

Bassnectar Network Says Deja Voom Won’t Return To Resort If Dolphins Remain Captive

Sun, 03/10/2019 - 17:10

Finally, the ongoing animal cruelty at the Barcelo Maya in Mexico where Bassnectar‘s Deja Voom recently took place is being addressed. Your EDM’s original exposé on the resort revealed dolphins being held in captivity — and sadly, one of the dolphins died just days after the music festival.

Attempts to reach out to Bassnectar and Odesza, who also plan to throw a music festival of their own at the same resort, have proven unsuccessful. However, a response directly from the Bassnectar Network might be the closest thing we get to an official statement.

In the Twitter thread below, a concerned fan addresses the situation:

RT if you would like to see the dolphinari shut down during deja next year! We need to protest this. If we’re for supporting the environment & end of animal cruelty we should not be allowing this on festival grounds. Grateful Dead did it we can too.

Bass Network directly responds:

shutting it down for a few days does not solve the problem, it puts a bandaid on it… we know about the dolphins… and we’re NOT ok with it! and we will not be returning our event to the resort unless something is done about the remaining ones in captivity

At the time of this writing, we have reached out again to Bassnectar’s team for additional comment and have not heard back. At this point, this is as official as it gets.

REPORT: Shaq Working On Music with Diplo & Wants To Get In Studio with Skrillex

Sun, 03/10/2019 - 13:51

Shaq is on top of his game!

Shaquille O’Neal aka Shaq aka DJ Diesel just recently unleashed a collaboration with NGHTMRE and Lil Jon, “Bang.” He’s known to land huge gigs, like last year at Lost Lands. Plus, he throws down at his own star-studded “Shaq’s Fun House” parties on the regular.

In a new interview with Page Six, he opens up about his music career. “Most people don’t know it, but my [first] rap album, ‘Shaq Diesel,’ actually went platinum,” he explains.

As for his current production, it’s a work in progress. “I have been spending a lot more time in the studio and just love to mess around making music,” he reveals to Page Six. “I am still learning a lot, but it’s always a good time.”

He compares DJing to playing hoops. “When I am up on stage in front of 100,000 people at a festival, it’s game 7. The energy is just wild and I get competitive. I need to throw down the best set possible.”

Shaq is holding himself to a high standard — he wants to get in studio with some of the best in the game. “I really look up to Diplo and Skrillex,” he says. “I’m working on some music with Diplo at the moment and would love to get in the studio with him and Skrillex soon.”

Right now, it’s good to be Shaq. No ceilings for this guy.

Real recognize real, which is exactly why Seven Lions is the perfect fit for an official remix of Above & Beyond’s stunning creation. It’s exciting to hear the song’s transformation from an upbeat and hopeful melodic house production into a smooth and surreal future bass track.

Memorial Rave For Mental Health To Be Held In Keith Flint’s Honor [DETAILS]

Sat, 03/09/2019 - 17:22

Music lost a true legend this week — but The Prodigy‘s Keith Flint started a fire that not even death could possibly put out. In his honor, a memorial rave will be held with all proceeds going to mental health charities.

The event is to take place Saturday, March 16 in Tottenham, North London at The Cause. Bands include the following and any others who shared the stage with The Prodigy are encouraged to attend.

NEBULA 2 | NOOKIE & MC FIVE ALIVE | SLIPMATT
ELLIS DEE | WARLOCK | NVWLS

Keith Flint suffered from depression and ultimately took his own life on March 4, 2019 at the age of 49.

The official Facebook event page reads: “Keith Flint was undoubtedly one of the greatest legends in the game, loved and respected by electronic music, punk and rock’n’roll fans alike.”

Mind in Haringey and CALM will split 100% of the profits from this honorary rave, both of which are mental health charities.

This 72-Year-Old Man Taught Himself To Produce Trap & He’s Pretty Damn Good [WATCH]

Sat, 03/09/2019 - 15:51

It’s never too late to follow your dreams. Take 72-year-old Arthur DuBois for example. This ripe talent was discovered in studio by Chicago MC Add-2 — and now he’s completely blowing up.

“Bruh!! Today I met a 72yr old producer who makes TRAP MUSIC!!” Add-2 shares in the original tweet. “He said the doctor told him to stay in the house but instead of wasting away he used the time to teach himself how to produce beats. ???????????????????????????????? I’M SO INSPIRED!!!”

A little hype goes a long way. First came the retweets, then came interview requests from NPR and Rolling Stone, and then artists started sharing his work. Even big names like Jay-Z and T.I. have been tagged — and in the EDM realm, YehMe2. Now, it seems fellow producers are lining up to work with this man.

Making quality trap beats is one thing, but this guy pours his heart and soul into his music. Next step will be coming up with his producer tag, which DuBois hasn’t yet put much thought into. Any suggestions?

Listen and be inspired!

Beats By Arthur DuBois

Bl4ck Owlz Has a Weekend Playlist for Us and It’s as Heavy as His New ‘Dead Groove’ EP

Sat, 03/09/2019 - 02:59

Bl4ck Owlz has gone through a lot of changes since becoming the winner of Evol Intent’s remix contest in 2015. Most notably, the French duo is down to one French dude (Vik) but that doesn’t seem to be stopping Bl4ck Owlz from rolling out the neurofunk rollers. With releases on Bad Taste, C4C and Korsakov in the past year, the newly trimmed down Bl4ck Owlz doesn’t show any signs of slowing.

His latest release is the Dead Groove EP on Korsakov and it’s full of neuro headsmashers as well as at least one very complex chin scratcher. With such a varied scope of sound on Dead Groove, we asked Bl4ck Owlz for a playlist of a few tracks he felt influenced this massive release and he did us one better: with a Koraskov mix just posted on Soundcloud today, the neuro dynamo also gave us a list of tracks that influenced each song on Dead Groove and told us why. With all this material, it will be easy to get sucked into the world of Bl4ck Owlz music and really why would you want to be anywhere else? Listen and learn: 

Dead Groove

Inspiration on this one came from tracks like Asteroids by Noisia, or very mechanical tracks like A.M.C does. I called it “Dead Groove” because of this off beat bass/synth. I love the dislocated and mechanical groove on the track. This one is defo the one I prefer on the EP. I am really happy with the mixdown and the master. I love that the snare and the half tempo parts are so weird and cool, I am pretty proud of “Dead Groove!”

 

Cosmic Dust Activity

For Cosmic I was looking for an energetic minimal track with a load of snares. I remembered this old one from Mefjus called “Dissuade.” This track idea came very fast, like in an afternoon. I was very inspired by a loop I’d found in my library, reworked this loop, added some cosmic dust to it et voilà!

Listen to the Wolves

So many versions of this track in my computer! It was very complicated to fit the mixdown with the music, but finally I found a compromise between musicality and loudness!

This track is inspired by musical neuro dnb like the “Sexy Thing” from Rido or “Beneath” from InsideInfo & Hybrid Minds

 

Propaganda

Propaganda is clearly inspired by Current Value’s style, I wanted to do something loud and groovy just to smash the dancefloor.

Dead Groove by Bl4ck Owlz is out now on Korsakov and is available to stream and purchase on multiple platforms here. Check out his Korsakov mix below:

Oliver Heldens Brings Heldeep 5 to Exchange LA [Event Review]

Sat, 03/09/2019 - 00:14

Oliver Heldens just kicked off his Heldeep 5 North American tour, celebrating five years of his Heldeep label. We had the pleasure of attending his sold out show in Los Angeles at Exchange LA last Saturday night. Oliver delighted the crowd by playing practically his entire catalog over two hours. The set was on point and Oliver’s production completely blew my mind with all variety of tropical land and sea animals decorating the venue’s massive LED screen.

Original Photo by Troy Acevedo

Oliver took the absolutely packed house on a journey through five years of Heldeep, from “Gecko”, “Koala” and “Can’t Stop Playing” to “Fire in My Soul” and “This Groove” the crowd got the best of Oliver Heldens. We also got some nice Hi-Lo tracks as well, including “Renegade Mastah.” Oliver did what he does best, got the crowd groovin’ and got people feeling good. Heldeep 5 did not disappoint. Get your tickets here and make sure to catch Oliver when he comes to your town!

Porter Robinson Renames His Multiverse Festival “Second Sky” After Local Event Backlash

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 22:04

A local Oakland music festival called The Multivrs Is Illuminated made a lot of noise today regarding Porter Robinson & Goldenvoice’s new Multiverse Festival. In an Instagram post earlier today (the account has since gone private), event organizers Jade Ariana and Shawna Shawnte wrote that Porter Robinson & Goldenvoice’s Multiverse Festival is “a continuation of the ongoing violence and discrepancies in power that continue to produce disenfranchisement within cultural production.”

Doing their best to be respectful to the event, which has gone on in Oakland since 2017, Multiverse festival has officially been renamed Second Sky Fest. The event will remain at Shoreline Amphitheater in Oakland on June 15.

“a couple days ago we found out about another oakland music event called ‘the multivrs is illuminated’ — i feel like the right thing to do is to change the name of our festival,” wrote Porter.

“it took a little time to sort out the logistics, but we’re changing it to Second Sky Music Festival!”

With regards to Ariana and Shawnte’s other demands, that Porter and Goldenvoice essentially pay reparations so that Multivrs can continue to throw events, no comment was made.
