Getter Adjusts ‘Visceral Tour’ Set After Hearing Feedback From Fans

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 21:35

Getter is determined to get fans onboard with his new Visceral Tour, even if that means switching it up.

The album was utterly spectacular — one of our Top 10 favorites to come out of 2018 — and the entire tour centers around that body of work. Some fans totally dig the lighter, melodic vibe, but some others who prefer his older, heavier material have been critical.

In a new social post, Getter opens up about the Visceral Tour and the feedback he’s been receiving from fans. (See more comments from fellow DJs below).

been thinking about the criticism of the visceral tour so far and have started to adjust a lot of shit in the performance

it doesn’t make sense for me to expect everyone from previous shows to be 100% down w the new stuff

ima make this super special thanks for the pointers ????

— ???????????????????????? (@GetterOfficial) March 7, 2019

From the sounds of it, Getter is switching up his act to adhere to a broader audience and, moving forward, the tour will sound a little different. We’re a little torn about this, because we’d love nothing more than for Getter to stick to his guns. On the other hand, it’s understandable that he wants to please the people paying for a ticket.

Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing Getter’s Visceral set at Buku and wouldn’t want him to change a thing. Sometimes, supporting an artist means being 100% down with whatever they want to share with you in that moment.

Get tickets to see Getter live here.

Fuk dat. Dont let ppl make you feel that the way. Display your art the way you want to. Its not the fans decision on what you play. You dont want those ppl coming to your shows ne ways if they gonna bitch it isnt like ur old shows

— BRIDDIM BOY???? (@woolimusic) March 7, 2019

The album is so beautiful dude. I can understand y it might b jarring for a lot of huge fans of your previous albums/releases, but Im def bummed they couldnt be a lil more open to what you’re doing and the amazing new stuff you’ve been creating. Its all amazing. Its all music ????

Audien Teams Up with Echosmith for Stunning New Track “Favorite Sound” [Interview]

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 17:43

Audien is taking 2019 by storm! Fresh off his huge remix for Calvin Harris, the Grammy-nominated producer is back with another huge collaboration. This time Audien teams up with alt-pop trio Echosmith to bring us “Favorite Sound” a bouncy, vibrant empowerment anthem. Audien co-wrote the song with Echosmith lead singer Sydney Sierota and he said their goal was “to create something super pretty and meaningful.” Mission accomplished. With masterful production by Audien, soaring vocals from Sydney, and some live instrumentation from Echosmith that brings a new dimension to Audien’s style.

We got the chance to chat with Audien (real name Nate Rathbun) and Sydney to talk about “Favorite Sound,” how they came together for the song, what they learned from each other, touring and their big plans for 2019. Exciting things are on the horizon for both Audien and Echosmith, and each of these artists fans.

Hi Nate, hi Sydney, I guess first tell me about “Favorite Sound.” How did you guys come together to make this song?

Nate: “Yeah, Favorite Sound came in a very digital age way. I got the demo and the vocals, and I sort of took it and ran with it. I produced it mostly on planes and stuff, very DJ style, very millennial DJ of me, producing it on laptop only, no studios.”

Sydney: “We went back and forth, actually, not even that much, but we had talked on the phone or gone back and forth on email. And we finally got to meet in person today, which is pretty awesome, that you can have a fully finished, awesome song together and meet each other after the fact. But, yeah, this one is really cool, because I think it has just such a good message to it, that I need to be reminded of, for sure. And, I just think that a lot of our fans are really going to relate to this, because it’s literally just about all the crazy sound inside your head, and how it can sometimes get the best of you, and feel really negative when your by yourself, if you’re listening to a lot of voices. It’s really just about being selective with what you’re believing, and starting to enjoy being by yourself or how you feel about yourself. That’s really what the song is about, I think it’s a really good reminder for all of us, for sure.”

For you Nate, this song really has that classic Audien sound, what was your process like creating this song.

N: “Honestly, I start everything with the melody, I did with this song too. It all starts with complex chords and then I sort of sprinkle in some of the fun riff-y elements later on, and then I add the vocal. This song particularly came out exactly like that, but in the past I’ve done the exact some process, not with vocals, and done instrumentals. That’s what I’m mostly known for, I’d say, is my instrumental stuff.”

Nate, what direction do you see your music headed? Would you like to do more crossover songs like this one and “Something Better”?

N: “Man, I play a lot of shows, so having a lot of cool club instrumental stuff, is really valuable to me, I love having new material to play out. But, these more pop songs, I tend to play seldomly and mostly in remixes and club-ier versions. The answer is I’ll do like a mix, and I think the album I’m going to put out this year is going to have a mix of instrumental stuff and sort of like pop/crossover, not even pop, just vocal stuff.”

Are you guys planning any performances together to support the track?

N: “We’re planning some really big ones actually for later this year, hopefully they’ll happen. We’ve got this huge one, we’re working it in. I can’t reveal anything yet, because I can’t even reveal that I’m playing that show yet, but I’ll let you use your imagination.”

Nate, I know you’ll be here at Beyond Wonderland Southern California in a couple of weeks. What festivals will we see you at this year?

N: “That one’s going to be a big one, I’m doing Spring Awakening in Chicago, Sunset Music Festival in Tampa, another big one that I can’t reveal yet. Yeah, we’re just playing a bunch of really cool ones. I’m not doing Ultra this year, I did Ultra last year, but just some really really big shows. I’m doing a lot of Anjunabeats shows, a lot of that Anjuna family stuff, which is always massive. Some sick, sick shows coming up, for sure.”

And Sydney, where will we see Echosmith touring this year?

S: “Yeah, we’re actually working on planning that now. We’re just wrapping up an album, it’s so, so close to be doing. It’s so almost done, that we’re already sort of touching on a third album on top of that at some point. So, we’re just really focusing on finishing this music and making sure we feel really sure and excited about every single part on it, and I think we’re really close. So, once we finalize that, then we’ll plan a tour and hoping for a little later this year to get back on the road and play this album live for everybody. So, yeah, we should have some more solid answers soon, but it will be soon.”

Who would you each like to work with in the future?

S: “I would love to work with the Killers or Coldplay, there our two biggest influences, and I love them. Or Empire of the Sun, that would be sick.”

N: “I think I’ll probably try and do a collab with Above & Beyond this year, I’ve always wanted to do that, and it’s so overdue. Just, everyone wants it, we haven’t done it, we’re going to do it.”

Sydney, do you see yourself working more with electronic artists in the future?

S: “Yeah, I think working with electronic artists is obviously fun, that’s why we keep doing it. We’re actually working on some more things right now, that we can’t talk about quite yet. But, yeah, we’re big fans of just doing collaborations in general. But, this is a really organic way of doing it, I think. Because you really get to blend your own voice and also our instruments with electronic music. So I think it’s a really nice blend and it works for us, so that’s why we keep going back to it. That’s why I love ‘Favorite Sound’, because it has so many elements of Echosmith in there, but it’s an Audien song. It’s really a great blend of everything. So yeah, we will have some more coming up soon, but we’re just focusing on this one.”

As artists in different genres, what was something that you each learned from each other while making this song?

N: “I guess for me, learning to use more real elements. For the first time I used a lot of real guitars and real drums, that were included in some of the parts from the demo they (Echosmith) had wrote. So, that I learned immediately, I want to use more live elements. It just came out way better that way. I just think that adding real elements like that gives it a human feel. I guess I’m just learning that the hard way. Someone could have told me that, but learning it through process.”

S: “And for us, we’ve always loved using electronic elements in our music, especially with fun keyboards, and keyboards live, specifically. And, in this song, there’s so many cool melodic parts that also feels very true to who we are as a band, because we love having melodic parts, no matter what instrument it’s coming from. So, I think doing this song and exploring other genres is really helpful for us as we’re finishing this album and working on the next album on top of that. It’s just really inspiring actually.”

You guys have been so busy, have you found any free time to decompress at all? What do you do to make sure you don’t go crazy working?

N: “I mean, Sydney’s getting married, so she’s been dealing with a lot of stuff in regards to that. But, as for me, I have a lot of free time honestly. I really budget my time well, and when I’m not on the road, I’ll take like three days of not working at all and just hanging out. So, I think it’s key to do that, I don’t overwork myself, I’ve found that that doesn’t yield good results. I’ve learned to budget my time, but I don’t do too much else other than music, I kind of just chill and play video games. Keepin’ it simple.”

S: “I do something similar, when we are touring it is very non-stop, but when I’m home, I’m home. That’s the cool thing about music, when you’re chilling, you’re truly doing nothing, that’s your time to finally binge watch the show that everyone’s talking about. Honestly, that’s what I do in my free time, I’ll just relax and watch TV. I have gotten into video games recently, which is very surprising for myself. I’m actually pretty good at Overwatch now! It’s so fun, honestly, and you play with strangers, which seems weird. It’s not like you have to be talking to them, I don’t. But, it’s actually kind of a fun way to decompress and get rid of some anxiety, I guess. Just blowing up people.”

Nate, what’s your favorite video game.

N: “I play Overwatch too. Yeah, I got into it a little bit, I don’t play it that much, I just kind of play when I’m super, super bored. But I don’t do much, I just chill, I’m a chiller, I chill harder than most. We’re just stoked for the new song, pumped for everyone to hear it.”

Alphalove Drops Infectious New Deep House Tune “Down By The River”

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 15:26

In the immortal words of Matt Foley, “I live in a VAN! Down by the RIVER!”

The new song “Down By The River” from Alphalove has nothing to do with Matt Foley or SNL, but it’s hard not to think of the iconic scene when you put it on. That being said, Alphalove and Foley could not be more polar opposites, with the former leaving all the aggression and awkwardness of the latter behind.

“Down By The River” sports an infectious deep house rhythm with an equally addictive vocal sample, making for an easy and sure hit. It’s not the most groundbreaking tune by any means, but definitely catch me cutting shapes on the dance floor when this comes on.

Check out “Down By The River” from Alphalove below, out now on Thrive Music.

Fans Of The Prodigy Campaign To Get “Firestarter” To #1

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 14:57

Fans are campaigning to get The Prodigy‘s “Firestarter” to #1. In the wake of the tragic death of Keith Flint, the group’s iconic frontman, fans want to make sure the fire continues.

A new campaign on Facebook encourages music fans to play and purchase The Prodigy’s standout track “Firestarter” in honor of the late legend. The goal is for the track to achieve #1 status, so don’t be afraid to hit that repeat button.

The idea is bigger than just topping the charts, however. The petition reads:

We need to raise awareness of mental health issues and suicide. Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 and that needs to change! This is the best way to raise Keith’s profile and bring his plight to the forefront of pop culture and mainstream.

Flint is remembered by his bandmates as a “a true pioneer, innovator and legend.” The entire dance music community echoes the same.

The Prodigy have since cancelled all of their upcoming tour dates, including Glastonbury 2019.

See the event here, get involved, and listen below. And, repeat.

The Prodigy – Firestarter

Martin Garrix Drops First New AREA21 Song In A Year, “HELP”

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 14:56

Martin Garrix released an entire album’s worth of material in 2018, so we understand that his side project AREA21 only put out one track last year. But we’re happy to see the duo with Maejor revived in 2019 for a new track, “HELP.”

“HELP” is a bit more subdued than some of the past material from AREA21, putting more emphasis on the hip hop and downtempo production. The lyrics are also a bit more poignant and pointed than some of their previous tracks, tackling issues like human superficiality, materialism, and religious extremism.

The lyrics are sung from the perspective of the AREA21 aliens approaching Earth and seeing the strife and conflict, and basically saying, “You know what, maybe we’ll come back another time.”

Check out “HELP” from AREA21 below.



AREA21 – HELP [Lyrics]

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe one day we’ll come say “Hi”
But right now is not the right time
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Waiting for the day when you done with all that fake shit
So many times we tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Hoping for the day when you overcome your hatred (Yeah)

[Chorus]
We came to your planet, but we had to leave
Saw too many things we didn’t want to see
When you’re all together, you look at your screens
What’s your problem? How can you be so naive?
People killing others ’cause of their beliefs (Wow, wow)

[Verse 1]
We tried coming down, but we saw no light (Saw no light)
We like species who represent good vibes (That’s what we like)
We fly over Earth and we say goodbye (Doei, doei!)
In time, we hope you recognise what’s right
Waiting, patient, til’ the time is right for us to save it
Before you fade away

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe one day we’ll come say “Hi”
But right now is not the right time
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Waiting for the day when you done with all that fake shit
So many times we tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Hoping for the day when you overcome your hatred (Fuck, yeah)

[Chorus]
We came to your planet, but we had to leave
Saw too many things we didn’t want to see
When you’re all together, you look at your screens
What’s your problem? How can you be so naive?
People killing others ’cause of their beliefs (How?)

[Verse 2]
We see people fighting, aye
We see rockets flying, aye
We see babies crying, aye
Politicians lying, woah
Where is the unity? You’re so divided, woah
Where is the love? We can’t seem to find it

[Bridge]
We tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves
We tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves

[Outro]
Switch
Maybe one day we’ll come say “Hi”
But right now is not the right time
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Waiting for the day when you done with all that fake shit

Former ‘The Walking Dead’ Star Chandler Riggs Drops New Single Under Steve Aoki’s Label

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 14:56

2018 was an interesting year for now 19 year-old Chandler Riggs. Most well known for his time on the AMC hit show The Walking Dead, Riggs has since departed from the show shocking many of the show’s most hardcore fans. However, it appears that Riggs is continuing to dabble with electronic music production with a little push from Steve Aoki.

Chandler Riggs is now signed with Steve Aoki’s music discovery label New Noise. Under the name Eclipse, Riggs’ new single titled “Endeavor” is a creep of future bass that flips into a slapping hybrid of house and trap. This description can sound a little confusing, but the song itself is a perfect fit with Aoki’s imprint and worth checking out.

But “Endeavor” is not Rigg’s first output of electronic music. Last year, Eclipse dropped four tracks under his Lunar – EP. He even had a set at EDC Las Vegas in 2018 that certainly competes with what the music industry pros are up to.

In an interview with KTLA, Riggs discussed the dual nature of his work in acting and in music saying,

“I’m actually producing music kind of on the side, and I’m starting to play some shows and things like that. I’m doing that and acting, it’s quite a lot to juggle but it’s a lot of fun. I produce electronic kind of music, like EDM kind of stuff. Acting is awesome, but I’m really, really able to express myself creatively in music.”

Although we won’t be seeing Rick Grimes calling out for “Caaaarl” anytime soon (since he’s also left The Walking Dead), we can now watch Chandler Riggs evolve as an artist in a genre he has always appreciated. And for fans of his acting, he’s currently appearing as a recurring character on ABC’s A Million Little Things and will be featured in two upcoming films that are currently in post-production.

Until then, check out “Endeavor” by Eclipse.

1 Killed, 1 Wounded Following Brawl & Shooting Outside Chicago Nightclub

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 14:51

Two people were shot during a street fight outside of Sound Bar nightclub in Chicago early Friday morning. One, a 28-year-old employee of the venue, was killed, and another wounded.

According to Chicago police, a brawl began in a nearby alley around 12 am. One man involved with the conflict pulled out a handgun and unleashed several rounds. He hit Thurman Bailey who worked in the nightclub and a 58-year-old man who “was associated with the business.”

Bailey died of multiple gunshot wounds around 1 am after being rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

The older man took himself into the same hospital and was treated for bullet fragments in his leg and arm. He’s expected to recover.

The suspect was described as a “male wearing a green puffy jacket and a black hat.” Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the authorities immediately.

Gesaffelstein Returns With New Album “HYPERION”

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 14:34

The road to Gesaffelstein’s second studio album, HYPERION, has been a roller coaster. Of course, when the dark prince of techno’s return was announced, the EDM community at large cheered and reveled in the news. And then we received “Reset,” which was accompanied by a hip hop-hating music video. Or was it? It was really hard to tell. Then he released “Lost In The Fire” with The Weeknd as the album’s second single, which ended up being criticized for its lyrics. The final single, “Blast Off” with Pharrell Williams, is a great Pharrell track — but not so much for Gesaffelstein.

All of this is to say that as the album rollout continued, many if not most of Gesaffelstein’s original fans felt themselves becoming alienated by his new music. His new home on Columbia Records certainly had a small part to play in the album’s changing tone, but ultimately, this was not the Gesaffelstein that we had once known.

And yet, now that HYPERION is out in full, it has revealed itself to be a far more complex listen than the vapid pop tunes that had been released as singles. The 10-track album clocks in at 40 minutes, not least of all because of a 10-minute ambient track “Humanity Gone” that serves as the album’s closer.

HYPERION begins with the title track, “Hyperion,” a very intro-focused track that lands somewhere in between M83, Animal Collective, or MGMT. The repetitive synth loop is joined by a simple analog melody that ends up giving it an overwhelming psychedelic atmosphere — one could even say that it’s a bright and hopeful track. It sets a tone that is immediately flipped on its head by the following song, “Reset.”

Whereas “Hyperion” was a beautifully arranged and ever-evolving track that brought many of Gesaffelstein’s strengths to the surface in new ways, “Reset” was comparably far more simple. The main beat for the track begins 10 seconds in and hardly wavers for the remainder of the 195 seconds except for an ambient bridge about halfway through. Immediately, listeners are hit with a dichotomy of sound and so far it’s a very confusing experience.

This is then followed up by “Lost in the Fire,” the first vocal track on the album and Gesaffelstein’s third occasion teaming up with Abel. Even if you weren’t privy to the previously mentioned controversy over the lyrics, the line “while I fuck you straight” is so emphasized that it’s impossible to mix. It stands out so staunchly against the rest of the track, you can’t help but think, “Wait… what did he just say?” If not for the troubling nature of the lyrics, it hurts that it pulls you out of immersion in the track, as well.

After these three wildly different tracks, we come to “Ever Now,” which, while it isn’t labeled as such, is really just an interlude. And yet, despite it being so short, the ambient and inquisitive nature of the track gives it a hypnotic quality that pulls you in and begs of you to want more. Following the first three tracks, HYPERION continues to present tracks at odds with each other, providing for an enigmatic listen, to say the least.

Finally, we come back to “Blast Off,” the collaboration with Pharrell Williams. Curiously, “Blast Off” fits into the album far better than I anticipated when I first heard the single. It’s still incredibly simple and very safe, and still comes off as a better Pharrell track than Gesaffelstein track, but it’s far from the least impressive track on the album so far.

Next up is “So Bad” with HAIM, easily one of the more wildcard tracks on the album. As it turns out, “So Bad” is quite sedative, playing with HAIM’s listless vocals against a mildly mesmerizing melody. It’s ultimately forgettable, which is unfortunate as this album needs every hit it can get.

The other wildcard of the album, “Forever” with The Hacker and Electric Youth, is alternatively a fantastic song with depth that actually does a lot with the comparably listless vocals. The production is brighter with a more varied melody and some actual piano notes thrown in to break up the monotony. Compared to “So Bad,” this is easily the more enjoyable of the two.

Going to the home stretch of the album, we’re presented with three instrumental tracks: “Vortex,” “Memora,” and “Humanity Gone.” Far and away, the final 16 or so minutes of the album are its strongest. While “Humanity Gone” alone is nearly 11 minutes, “Vortex” and “Memora” could have easily been combined into one 6-minute track, as well. The ambiance and dark production are more present here than anywhere else in the album, and it’s sad that it took this long to get here.

It’s actually a neat little trick, too, when you think about it. You’ve spent so much time listening to two-star-out-of-five tracks on the album that when you finally get to the end, you’re met with 16 minutes of greatness. As you come out of it, experiencing recency bias first hand, you think to yourself, “Wow, that album was actually really good,” when in fact, you’re just remembering your favorite tracks because you’ve just heard them.

But to zero in on “Humanity Gone” specifically for a moment, it is truly a phenomenal track. It’s just ten minutes of pure, ambient Gesaffelstein — it’s like swimming in his mind and getting pulled under a rip tide of emotion and swirling ethereal bliss. It’s interesting how the album manages to come full circle back to a more psychedelic ending after such a long string of forgettable singles.

Ultimately, I would give HYPERION a 6.5/10. It’s not a bad album by any means, but aside from the final three tracks, there’s nothing in it that would make me want to come back and listen again. It’s certainly an album that everyone should listen to at least once, if not simply because it is Gesaffelstein, then because it’s important to see how artists change over time — it’s a brilliant lesson in how to accept and deal with deviations from your expectations.

Mad M.A.C. & Flaremode Team Up Once Again For The Thunderous Single, “Madagasgar” [Smash The House]

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 13:30

If there was ever a song to get you in the mood for festival season, it’s this monstrous single from artists Mad M.A.C. & Flaremode titled “Madagasgar”. It just released today via Smash The House and may just be each of these artists biggest release yet!

It’s electrifying right from the start, building into a highly energetic drop that can’t help but get your heart racing. Powerful brass stabs weave in and out of the arrangement as an electrifying lead thunders through. You can expect to hear “Madagasgar” in heavy rotation all year long, especially at Ultra in just a few weeks.

This collaboration has been in high anticipation ever since the guys teamed up for their beautiful remix last year to Angemi’s “Show Your Flame”, also on Smash The House. Since then, both artists have showed no signs of slowing down. Flaremode recently released their anthem “Dolci Pensieri” with Jean Marie that charted for 2 weeks into Psy Trance top 10. MAD M.A.C played at Tomorrowland and at Ushuaia Ibiza’s Garden of Madness and has big plans for 2019.

Your EDM Premiere: Malive Drops Soul-Snatching New Single “Guap” [PINNACLE COLLECTIVE]

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 13:09

Malive just might be one of the most underrated producers out there — but it won’t stay that way for long. His new single “Guap” will make you stop dead in your tracks to listen.

You may have heard his song “Yali” on Malaa‘s Illegal Mixtape Vol. 2, or his own Heaven EP released on Tchami’s Confession. For me, I distinctly remember the first time I heard his collaborative track “Wolfs” and it completely consumed me. That same exciting feeling is back with “Guap.”

The Brazilian house megahead is here to shake things up with his intensely dark perspective. Aggressive distortion, driving rhythm and alluring vocal chops make this production stand out. Twists and turns await at every corner as the 5-minute story plays out.

Malive has an ability to reach out and steal souls, as heard loud and clear with this new single. To say “Guap” is a dark house masterpiece is by no means any stretch of the imagination. It’s worth obsessing over.

Pinnacle Collective expands on the release:

Always keeping his listeners guessing, Malive delivers a trip many, many years into the future of house with his latest installment, ‘Guap.’ The Brazilian producer serves up groovy punches and a fat baseline with a powerful side of vocal chop. A sound big enough to feed the whole family. We could use a thousand words to describe it, take a listen and see for yourself.

Justice Skolnik shares shimmering remix of RL Grime & Daya’s “I Wanna Know”

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 13:07

Justice Skolnik has been on a tear in 2019. He’s already dropped remixes of Disclosure, LSD, ODESZA, Justice, and now RL Grime. Justice decided to take on what was undoubtedly one of the biggest songs of the year with RL’s song “I Wanna Know” ft. Daya.

He turns the massive hit into a future bass fantasy filled with his signature tropical uplifting synths. I can’t help but think of those warm Summer days at the beach when listening to this song. Check it out below to see what I mean and pick up your free download here.

Marshmello Teams Up With CHVRCHES For New Song “Here With Me”

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 12:24

When Marshmello first revealed he had a collaboration coming with CHVRCHES, fans were understandably skeptical. However, after listening to their new song “Here With Me” a number of times this morning, it’s easy to see that the two work together fantastically.

“Here With Me” isn’t a particularly groundbreaking song for either artist, but its simplicity lets CHVRCHES lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s voice shine through brilliantly. Supported by a light guitar melody and some understated drums, the song remains catchy all the way through.

As with any song under three minutes (“Here With Me” clocking in at 2 minutes, 36 seconds), I wish it was a bit longer. Maybe another bridge or some vocal embellishment in one of the verses would have been nice, but it’s still a great track nonetheless.

Check out “Here With Me” by Marshmello featuring CHVRCHES below.



Marshmello ft CHVRCHES – Here With Me [Lyrics]

[Verse 1]
Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice, I know I’m finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
And I need you here with me
When you lift me up, I know that I’ll never fall
I can speak to you by saying nothing at all
Every single time, I find it harder to breathe
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Chorus]
Every day
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me
Every day
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Verse 2]
I think I see your face in every place that I go
I try to hide it, but I know that it’s gonna show
Every single night, I find it harder to sleep
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Chorus]
Everyday
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me
Every day
You’re saying the words that I want you to say
There’s a pain in my heart and it won’t go away
Now I know I’m falling in deep
‘Cause I need you here with me

[Outro]
Can I tell you something just between you and me?
When I hear your voice, I know I’m finally free
Every single word is perfect as it can be
‘Cause I need you here with me

Your EDM Premiere: Galantis – Bones ft. OneRepublic (Hook N Sling Remix)

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 12:10

Galantis dropped their hit with OneRepublic, “Bones,” earlier this year and it’s already sitting at tens of millions of plays across platforms. Now, here to give the track a breath of fresh air is Hook N Sling.

Whereas the original carries a more folksy/pop sentimentality, Hook N Sling definitely goes for the more party atmosphere. With a bit of a pumped up tempo and a drop that is reimagined for maximum danceability, Hook N Sling absolutely knocked this one out of the park.

It’s wild just how much of the original shines through in the new remix while still presenting an entirely new side to the track. Check out Hook N Sling’s remix of “Bones” by Galantis below!

HARBER & Lexy Panterra Team Up For Tropical Single, “More Than You” [450 Music]

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 12:07

One of our favorites is back at it again. If you’re not familiar with HARBER, he’s crafted quite a warm and sensational style that resonates nothing but good vibes. He’s earned the support of The Chainsmokers, Crankdat, Stafford Brothers, and many others for both his originals and remixes. He recently released a remix for Dan & Shay’s “Tequila” that is my personal favorite remix for the song, earning nearly 20k streams on soundcloud alone.

This time,HARBER is back featuring the talented Lexy Panterra who provides a amazing performance over an electrifying, tropical-esque beat. Co-written along with Kate Morgan (songwriter of The Chainsmokers “Hope” and the US gold-certified DVBBS x Blackbear “IDWK”), “More Than You” illustrates a love-affair with the night, something we can all relate to.

“More Than You” is another great release from HARBER and will leave you yearning to go out on the weekdays, toasting with rosé to good vibes, and addicted to the night in no time. Stream it below!

Rat City Drops High Concept Project & Video, ‘Kind Of Love’

Fri, 03/08/2019 - 03:59

 

Rat City looks, from the outside like your typical urban metropolis, but behind the glitz and glamour it’s exactly as it sounds – a hotbed of seedy characters stabbing each other in the back at every turn. Friends and enemies interchange fluidly as they let their primal instincts call the shots. Even the police are criminals here. One thing is for sure nothing is ever as it seems in Rat City.

Rat City’s new single, the criminally catchy ‘Kind Of Love’ features the vocal stylings of Norwegian newcomer Isak Heim, plus a beautifully rendered animated video, evocatively depicting the ultimate dysfunctional relationship.

A high concept audio visual project seamlessly fusing song and image, Rat City was conceived by Norwegian songwriter/producers Kent and Cato Sundberg. Lasse Michelsen joined in 2018 and more  recently, animator/designer Micah Monkey signed on to the Rat City collective as creative director.

Speaking about the ‘Kind of Love’ video director Micah Monkey comments:

‘It seemed like just another lead for Frank, Rat City’s most notorious detective. That is until he met her; a femme fatale in the truest sense of the word.  In typical Frank fashion, this beautiful woman blinds his judgment, leaving him unable to realize that she has been hired by the very person he has been tasked to investigate. And unfortunately for the lovesick Frank, this “hot lead” will only lead him to a double cross… and a watery grave.’

Check out this amazing video and super catchy track from Rat City below:

REPORT: Kanye West’s Publishing Contract Says He’s Not Allowed To Retire

Thu, 03/07/2019 - 18:43

Kanye West‘s publishing contract with EMI is currently at the center of a complex lawsuit. Now, it’s been revealed to the public just how intense the terms are. For starters, he’s not allowed to retire — ever.

The lawsuit details the terms of the publishing contract which states, West will “remain actively involved in writing, recording and producing Compositions and Major Label Albums, as Your principle occupation.” The agreement also states “at no time during the Term” will Kanye initiate a retirement or extended hiatus.

Kanye is suing EMI and his label after his attempt to buy back his publishing rights failed. The famed rapper/producer is seeking “freedom” from his contracts in regards to publishing and recording. The “no retirement” bit is his best chance at gaining back control.

His case references the California Labor Code section 2855 which states that personal service contracts may run no longer than seven years. The official complaint from West reads:

It makes no difference under section 2855 whether the contract is otherwise fair, or whether the employer has fulfilled its end of the bargain. It matters only whether the services began more than seven years ago. There can be no dispute that this happened here. The seven year period ended under this contract on October 1, 2010.

That was around the time Kanye West released My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Top 10 Biggest Singles Of 2018 Revealed

Thu, 03/07/2019 - 18:40

2018 was a long, long year — for a lot of reasons. A lot of music was also released in those 12 months, including some truly global hits. IFPI, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, has just released their official list of the 10 biggest singles of 2018, and it’s quite an interesting look.

Coming in at #1 is “Havana” from Camila Cabello featuring Young Thug. Writes Official Charts, “In June 2018, Havana became the most-streamed song ever by a female artist on Spotify with 888 million streams and has now clocked up 2.6 billion streams worldwide across all providers.” That it also measures up as the biggest song globally in 2018 is no surprise.

“God’s Plan” by Drake was released January 19, 2018. (Remember what I said earlier about 2018 being a really, really long year? Yeah.) It’s no surprise either that this track makes it to the #2 spot, achieving global virality as well as meme status.

Ed Sheeran scores the next two spots for “Shape Of You” and “Perfect,” both of which came out on his March 2017 album, Divide. Clearly, though, their popularity persisted throughout 2018.

The rest of the list hits popular tracks like “Despacito” and Post Malone’s “Psycho,” as well as Chinese artist Tia Ray for her track “Be Apart.”

The Chainsmokers and Marshmello are, unsurprisingly, the only two electronic artists who ended up on the list; however, both were for ostensibly non-electronic songs, “Something Just Like This” and “Happier,” respectively.

See the full top 10 list below!

Top 10 global digital singles of 2018 Rank Artist and song title Global total converted track equivalent (m) 1 Camila Cabello (feat. Young Thug) – Havana 19.0 2 Drake – God’s Plan 15.3 3 Ed Sheeran – Shape Of You 14.9 4 Ed Sheeran – Perfect 13.5 5 Maroon 5 (feat. Cardi B) – Girls Like You 11.9 6 Luis Fonsi (feat. Daddy Yankee) – Despacito 11.8 7 Tia Ray – Be Apart 10.9 8 The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – Something Just Like This 10.0 9 Marshmello & Anne-Marie – FRIENDS 9.6 10 Post Malone (feat. Ty Dolla $ign) – Psycho 9.2

The IFPI Global Digital Singles Chart includes sales of digitally downloaded singles and on-demand video and audio streams across the calendar year; using permanent download equivalent units to combine measurements of digital sales and streams.
