It was a quiet 2018 for duo Grey. Aside from releasing the massive hit “The Middle” with Zedd and Maren Morris, the two spent the rest of the year in the studio. Perfecting their craft and coming up with new songs, 2019 is the year that Grey releases a lot of new music.

Grey are back with their newest song, “Want You Back” featuring Swedish pop singer Léon. It’s also their first single after signing with Island Records.

Grey have perfected the pop EDM sound after working together with Zedd on countless singles and also putting in the work themselves this past year. “Want You Back” is a breezy, simple tune that’s fun and easy to listen to. But don’t confuse simple for low quality, this is the same Grey that made us fall in love with them when they first started.

Check out “Want You Back” below and get ready for even more new Grey music in 2019!

Drug Dog Exposed To Ecstasy Ahead Of Holy Ship! Saved With Narcan

Thu, 01/10/2019 - 19:09

Passengers boarded Holy Ship! 13.0 yesterday from Port Canaveral in Florida, but not before being thoroughly searched for drugs and illicit materials. Part of the search process was conducted with drug dogs, leading to the near fatal reaction of one K9.

According to Brevard County sheriff’s spokesman Tod Goodyear, one dog was sniffing luggage and alerted officers to a baggie in which powder was found, which was determined to be ecstasy at a later time. A short time after finding the baggie, the dog began showing the effects of drug exposure.

Robert J. MacLean with the U.S. Marshals Office confirmed the incident and said that Narcan was supplied by a crew member aboard the ship. Federal agents at Port Canaveral do not carry Narcan. Writes WKMG, “[MacLean] said that is a problem, as agents can also be exposed to unknown substances or drugs.”

The dog was taken to a veterinarian and is now in stable condition.

Over a dozen people were arrested for offenses including drug possession before 12.0 set sail this past weekend. 13.0 returns on Saturday.

Deadmau5 Gives A Sneak Peek At Cube 3.0

Thu, 01/10/2019 - 18:01

Ultra Music Festival made waves when it announced the lineup for 2019 at its new home in Virginia Key. With plenty of performances exclusive to the festival (i.e., not playing anywhere else during MMW), the festival is clearly trying to make the new home the go-to place in March. One of the huge draws of the festival will undoubtedly be deadmau5’s headlining set, whereupon he’ll unveil the worldwide debut of his Cube 3.0.

Fans who have been paying attention to mau5 on Twitch have seen him testing out the new Cube set up in the studio, using a variety of software like Cinema 4D and Houdini FX. Over 24 hours of him working on the Cube has already been streamed, including the (relatively) short 30-minute clip below.

The clip below, however, shows more of the final set up of the whole staging, including the shape of the cube and accompanying LED panels and trusses. In the course of the video, we get an idea for the expected dimensions of the cube: mau5 says the cube itself will be 16 feet per side, and the LED strip in the back is around 9 feet from top to bottom.

Subscribe to deadmau5’s Twitch channel to be notified next time he goes live.

Sicko Mode, But Made With Only Sounds From Animal Crossing

Thu, 01/10/2019 - 15:55

A lot of casual users of social media think that meme culture only exists on platforms that support images: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Reddit, etc. However, there exists a vast and often disturbing meme culture on SoundCloud as well. (Read more on SoundClown here.)

The culture often revolves remixing popular songs and injected it with memes like the Thomas the Tank Engine song or “Through The Fire And Flames” by Dragonforce – or both if someone is ambitious. In the case of memer Overspace, it meant recreating Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode” entirely out of sounds from Nintendo’s “Animal Crossing” — yes, even the vocals.

You wouldn’t think that the game has enough sounds to recreate every synth and drum from “Sicko Mode,” but you’d be wrong. Overspace shares a video of the FL Studio project file playing, along with full version uploaded to Soundcloud below. Beware, it’s deceptively catchy and you’ll probably never be able to listen to the original in the same way ever again.

Watch The Trailer For Netflix’s New Documentary On The Dumpster Fire That Was Fyre Festival

Thu, 01/10/2019 - 14:18

Fyre Festival was supposed to be the most insane festival the world had ever seen. And in a way… it succeeded. Just not in the way anyone had hoped. The brainchild of Ja Rule and Billy McFarland became one of the most-talked about events of 2017 for all the wrong reasons.

Now, a new documentary from Netflix, FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, attempts to shine a light on the festival from a never-before seen angle behind the scenes with real captured footage.

“Powerful models built this festival,” says one of the interviewees. “And then one picture of cheese on toast ripped down the festival.”

The documentary compiles footage from the festivals, behind the scenes footage of McFarland, as well as new commentary footage from those involved. It’s out globally on Netflix on January 18, 2019.

Your EDM Premiere: 1000volts x Dion Timmer – Dab It ft. Kid Capri [Deadbeats]

Thu, 01/10/2019 - 13:18

We’re no strangers to 1000volts, the collaborative project of Redman and Jayceeoh, here on Your EDM. But even having covered their music countless times, we’re still more excited than ever to premiere their new collaboration with Dion Timmer and Kid Capri, “Dab It,” out today on Deadbeats.

“Dab It” is quintessentially 1000volts — when you think Redman, weed undoubtedly comes to mind (How High is a classic). And with Dion Timmer and Kid Capri in tow, the track reaches a new level of hype. A combination of trap and wobbly dubstep constitute this vocal anthem to dabs. And whether you partake in weed or not, the track itself is still more than capable of making some bassheads headbang at the rail.

Check out the premiere of “Dab It” from 1000volts and Dion Timmer, featuring Kid Capri, below, out now on Deadbeats.

Rapture Fest Hits Ultra With A Cease & Desist

Thu, 01/10/2019 - 13:02

The last few months have not been kind to Rapture Festival in Florida. Despite having lived at Virginia Key for two years and already booking dates for a third on the island, a 4-1 vote from the Miami City Commission ousted the festival in favor of Ultra Music Festival, which itself was ousted from Bayfront Park earlier in 2018.

After much opposition, Rapture conceded the loss and began a search for a new home. “Our search for a new location that will allow our original vision to continue has yielded us several amazing locations that we can honestly say are much better than our original home,” it wrote on Facebook in November in a now-deleted post.

As it turns out, it seems that search hasn’t yielded any promising results as Rapture has delivered a cease & desist letter to Ultra Music Festival, asking it to stop applying for any new permits.

“We are investigating this matter further and if [you] do not immediately withdraw your application that directly interferes with our client’s planned festival time and location, we will be taking immediate action against you, the City and Virginia Key Beach Park Trust,” reads the letter from Rapture’s attorney, Paul K. Silverberg. “Any continued behavior and furtherance of the complained act will be considered willful and subject you to punitive damages.”

Permits that Ultra is currently still applying for include one “from Miami-Dade’s Division of Environmental Resources Management to construct a temporary dock at the Marine Stadium to accommodate the water taxis,” according to Miami Herald.

Miami City Attorney Victoria Mendez and Ultra spokesman Ray Martinez declined to comment on the letter.

Calvin Harris Spotted In Studio with Dua Lipa & Tove Lo [VIDEO]

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 20:15

It looks like Calvin Harris is back in the studio with one of his most recent and key collaborators, Dua Lipa — along with electropop sensation Tove Lo!

The three have been spotted together thanks to songwriter Dayyon Alexander‘s recent Instagram Story. “Spent my bday in the room with these legends,” he shares in the now viral video update below.

Whatever they’re cooking up, they’re keeping it on the down low. Alexander made sure to turn the sound off for his post, not giving away so much as a hint.

Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa’s smash it “One Kiss” was recently named the biggest single of 2018 by Official Charts. Of course, we all know Tove Lo through her work with Flume, Major Lazer, Alesso, Seven Lions and more.

If this potential collaboration follows through, we can expect it to be a major release!

Porter Robinson Opens Up About Grammy-Nominated Project Virtual Self

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 20:14

Porter Robinson‘s new project Virtual Self is up for a Grammy Award this year. Anyone who has heard “Ghost Voices” knows it has the potential to take home Best Dance Recording. As for Porter, he’s just excited about the nod.

“I felt like I won the moment it got nominated,” he revealed to Billboard. “It was more than enough, but I’m completely satisfied that Virtual Self got nominated for the Grammy. That is a complete victory for the project in my mind and anything else is just bonus.”

When it comes to Virtual Self, it’s all in the details. “I put a lot of effort in details for Virtual Self’s production,” he explained during a recent interview with Billboard Radio China. “Filling in many styles and details to present a very polished background story invigorated by the sound.”

It’s true. Listen to any Virtual Self track and it’s easy to hear the intricacies — the little moments that add up to form a larger-than-life production. It’s great to hear his work, particularly “Ghost Voices,” pay off with this Grammy nom.

Looking forward into 2019, the now Grammy-nominated artist plans on even more music releases and anticipates some collaborations with fellow producers.

In celebration of the Grammy nomination, Virtual Self is playing the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on February 9. Pre-sale goes live tomorrow at 11a PT (sign up for pre-sale code here) — general on-sale is Friday, January 11 at 11a PT.

Stay tuned for more from Porter Robinson and Virtual Self.

LISTEN: Illenium Closes Out Beta Nightclub For The Final Time

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 20:13

This past Saturday was the final night of Beta Nightclub. The Denver staple is closing its doors after eleven long years, but it wasn’t going out without a bang. Friday saw the likes of 12th Planet, Bear Grillz, Figure, Midnight Tyrannosaurus, Dirt Monkey, Wooli, Shank Aaron and more roll through and do their duty.

But the honor of playing the final night of the club went to none other than Denver native Illenium.

Plenty of people have said they’ve never heard Illenium play a more filthy set, and, given that it was Beta Nightclub after all, that makes total sense. The recording below is the best quality available now; though not perfect, it should still do the trick.

Listen to Illenium’s set from the final night of Beta Nightclub in Denver below.

This Kayzo x K?D Collaboration Could Become A True Hardstyle Anthem

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 20:12

Kayzo has two major collaborations on the way: one with 1788-L, and another with k?d. We’ve already heard the 1788-L collaboration played out and it’s absolutely insane. But what about the k?d collab? Both Kayzo and k?d have posted videos of different drops from the track, and altogether, this one could be a future hardstyle anthem for years to come.

The drop shared by Kayzo is on the more atonal side of hardstyle, pushing intense and raucous bass; a second drop also shows there’s some dubstep in there for good measure. The drop shared by k?d is just simply on another level, though. The beautifully melodic hardstyle drop is what all dreams are made of, and we could see this being a Defqon anthem or something similar for sure.

Check out both videos below to get a good idea of the track coming out soon.

Your EDM Playlist: Insomniax Discuss The Influential Tracks that Led to ‘Foghorn’ [Videos]

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 17:07

So apparently there’s been a resurgence in the foghorn sample or sine wave in DnB of late, or at the very least more attention is being paid to it. As the name implies, the foghorn is a sample or programmed sound that has the heavy bass and wave-in, wave-out feel of its namesake. With all the discussions going in recent months about what is and is not a foghorn track (it should be loosely defined at best), Viper artists Insomniax decided to cut out the middle man with their most recent track and just name it “Foghorn.” The UK duo are efficient if nothing else.

In light of their valiant efforts to bring “Foghorn” to the forefront of DnB as well as a series of bangers on Viper recently including their “Gravitron” on the Viper 2019 Annual LP out worldwide tomorrow, Your EDM decided it was time to ask Insomniax what kind of tracks they love. In this very articulate playlist from Ollie, we can really see the duo’s passion for drum and bass, for making music and, of course, for foghorn DnB. Read/listen on:

Moses and Zero T – Monarch

When this was released I remember thinking how unique it sounded, a lot of artists at the time were making big hitters and this track was a real breath of fresh air. I love the way the long brass style bass just
drones along throughout the track – so minimal and simple. Since hearing ‘Monarch’ It was always my intention to write something with a similar vibe. A few years ago I made the “Foghorn” bass patches but didn’t actually
use them for “Foghorn” until the end of 2017.

DJ Fresh – Floodlight

Absolute classic DJ Fresh and there’s no denying that I’ve taken influence from this track, especially the intro. I love the way Fresh used to write tracks based on a theme. It gave his music such identity and you would always remember hearing them in the raves. When I started writing this track I already knew that I wanted the theme
to be based around the seaside. I spent a long time thinking about how I could arrange all of the samples together. After some time I remembered what Fresh did with floodlight and thought I could tie the intro
together in a similar way.

Bad Co UK – Nitrous

The old Apple Mac Xerox text to speech app. Again a little nod at Bad Company and DJ Fresh. I always loved hearing that voice on tunes at the raves. So simple but so effective.

Origin Unknown – Sound in motion

One of my all time favorite DnB tracks. I used to love the way the Ram Trilogy guys filtered their bass sounds,
especially on this track. It gave the bass so much movement and squelch. The bass seems to slither in and out like a snake. I still take so much inspiration from old RAM releases from that era and tried to incorporate
some of that influence into “Foghorn.”

Benny L – Low Blow

I didn’t actually take inspiration from this tune. It was more of it giving me the confidence that people would get it. Before “Low blow” came out I had half written “Foghorn” and couldn’t seem to find the drive
to finish it. I didn’t think people would understand it because of its unusual sound and arrangement.
When I heard “Low blow” by Benny L and what a great response it was receiving it gave me the green light to finish “Foghorn.” Although they don’t sound at all like each other they both share that same kind of long, sustained drone bass. That kind of sound seemed to connect really well with people in 2018.

“Foghorn” is out now on Viper of course and the Viper Annual drops worldwide today, January 9 and features Insomniax’s insane new track, “Gravitron.” Check it out on Beatport, Soundcloud and Spotify.

Police Call For Public Safety Following Bassnectar NYE Attendee’s Fatal Overdose

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 17:01

An attendee of Bassnectar‘s NYE show in Greensboro, NC passed away of a suspected overdose — and now police are raising public safety concerns.

According to a report, the NYE 360 show at the Greensboro Coliseum resulted in a number overdoses, including one that was fatal. Tam Phan (43) was found dead at the Comfort Suites on Isler Road in Greensboro following the concert.

Police were apparently warned that drugs have been tied to Bassnectar events in the past. The force in Greensboro reportedly received a tip off that NYE “could be the worst night of their careers.”

Safety measures, including medical assistance by Paradocs, were put in place prior to the show. Triage rooms were set up to treat overdose patients.

Though 911 records show a handful of calls throughout the night, most cases were handled by staff on-site.

Coliseum staff members noted this was the third-largest concert ever held at the venue, with 22,000 people in attendance.

Bassnectar did not respond immediately to WXII 12‘s request for comment.

Over A Dozen Arrested On Drug Charges Before Boarding Holy Ship! 12.0

Wed, 01/09/2019 - 16:56

For the second year in a row, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office has released a list of individuals arrested before boarding the annual Holy Ship! cruise in Florida. Last year, over 40 people were arrested over the course of both sailings, including DJ Gina Turner the first week.

So far, the numbers from Holy Ship! 12.0 have been released, numbering 16 individuals. Holy Ship! 13.0 is setting sale today. They were arrested for a variety of offenses, ranging from possession of a controlled substance, resisting an officer, and intent to sell narcotics.

A joint effort between Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and Port Canaveral, including the use of drug-sniffing dogs, resulted in the arrests.

An anti-narcotics policy is clearly listed on the Holy Ship! website:

“You will be embarking Holy Ship! in Port Canaveral and passing through security run by Customs and Border Protection, a division of Homeland Security,” it warns.

“Your person and your luggage can and will be searched. Forget about your right to privacy, you are passing through a port where all local and federal laws apply and are strictly enforced.

“Every person and each piece of luggage will be inspected by dogs trained to detect explosives and contraband. Anyone found to be violating the law and/or in possession of illegal substances…will be arrested and banned from all future events.”

Photos, names, and ages of those arrested can be seen here, along with the charges filed against them. The second leg of the cruise, 13.0, boards today from Port Canaveral.
