ULTRA MUSIC FESTIVAL IS OFFICIALLY LEAVING MIAMI

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 17:10

While a meeting tomorrow from the Miami City Council was expected to define Ultra Music Festival’s fate, Ultra has beaten the city to the punch and announced that it has “voluntarily terminated” its license with the city.

“After listening to feedback from many of you, it is clear that the festival experience on Virginia Key was simply not good enough. […] We are now finalizing a new South Florida location that will serve as an incredible and permanent home for Ultra Music Festival.”

Ultra Music Festival has been in Miami since it was founded in 1999, though it’s had many different locations in the city during that time. It was first held on Miami Beach, but aside from 2001-20015 where it was held at Bicentennial Park, it had called Bayfront Park in downtown Miami its home through 2018. In 2019, the festival moved to the Virginia Key Beach Park and Miami Marine Stadium.

This year proved the festival’s most tumultuous, as it was only given a matter of months to fully prepare a full-scale festival at a new venue. Issues with transportation into and out of the festival were exacerbated by the  Rickenbacker Causeway and shuttles, as well as pedestrians attempting to walk and find their own transportation.

If you didn’t attend Ultra 2019, you missed out on Ultra’s final year ever in Miami. But, more information and tickets will be made available soon for 2020.

REPORT: Keith Flint of The Prodigy Took Drugs Before Death

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 15:32

On March 4, 2019 we lost a legend, Keith Flint of The Prodigy. The band informed fans upon his passing that he had “taken his own life” at age 49.

Now, toxicology results challenge the suicide and the corner deems there is “insufficient evidence” to prove one way or another. He died due to hanging, however, Flint was found to have unspecified amounts of cocaine, alcohol and codeine in his system when he died.

Senior Coroner for Essex Caroline Beasley-Murray recorded an open conclusion of his death, as reported by BBC. In which, she stated the following…

“We will never quite know what was going on in his mind on that date.”

“I’ve considered suicide. To record that, I would have to have found that, on the balance of probabilities, Mr. Flint formed the idea and took a deliberate action knowing it would result in his death.”

“Having regard to all the circumstances I don’t find that there’s enough evidence for that.”

The coroner concluded it was either an “accident or suicide.” She also said there was no suspicious circumstances and no third party involvement.

A full inquest will be held next month to further discuss the death of Flint.

Codeko Drops New Music Video For “Close To Me,” Talks College, Touring, & New Music

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 13:37

Your EDM has been a huge fan of Codeko for years, covering his releases since 2014, nearly since our inception. Over the years, he’s released a number of tracks we’ve covered, but he’s been working hard as well going to college at Cambridge University — and he’s just graduated with a degree in physics at the top of his class.

On top of his studies, he’s also an accomplished, classically-trained multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer, and he shows it off on the new video for “Close To Me” with Xanthe. He takes ownership of his talents, playing guitar, keys, and drums all himself on the track.

Codeko proves that with proper time management (and also actual management), it’s possible to hit any goal you set your mind to.

Check out the impressive video for “Close To Me” below, and read on for Your EDM’s exclusive interview with Codeko.

For those who are just coming across your music: Who is Codeko? How would you describe your sound?

My name is Ed Clark but people typically refer to me by my stage name, Codeko. I’m a classically trained musician and have been playing piano since I was 5, but got into producing dance music when I was about 15 for fun; it kinda spiraled from there! My music varies a lot since I don’t like only producing a specific genre, but in general it’s always super melodic and high energy.

You just graduated from Cambridge where you studied physics and were top of your class. How did you balance classes and music/touring?

Cambridge is an amazing university, and when i got accepted it seemed like a mistake to turn it down. Balancing the work & music was super tough but usually involved classes during the day and just squeezing in music production when I could. When I started getting booked for international shows, I’d skip class on Fridays and head to the airport, and usually get back in time for class on Monday (if I wasn’t too jetlagged!) It was a lot of work, physics isn’t an easy subject but I made it all work (just about). Getting a 4.0 was pretty nuts, was really just hoping to pass my final year and came as a complete surprise, was pretty pleased! It all seemed to work out in the end, I wrote “Say Hi” and a bunch of other tracks in my dorm room & they ended up being some of my most streamed songs which is pretty cool in hindsight. As for physics/science, I’m still finding ways to utilize my major in day to day life.

You also just released “Close to Me,” and a music video, which we love. What was the production process like for the track and the video? Any inspirations? Especially with you performing three live instruments!

Electronic music is often very synth heavy, and for a while I’ve wanted to write a track that uses a bunch of real, live world instruments that I play. The unique, james bond-esque chord progression was where the track started, and from that I wrote the topline & added in the guitar solo and everything else. The music video concept of ‘duplicating’ me playing the different parts was something I thought would be really cool from the start, that the whole team came together to make it work, super pleased with how it came together!

We’ve heard you’ve done over 50 college shows in the past year. It must be pretty cool to be performing and partying with students your age while also being a booked act. Out of all the schools you’ve been to, which is the most fun and why?

I love college shows for exactly that reason, they’re always so much fun. It was pretty crazy at first seeing how big these university parties can get here in the states, the UK college party scene is completely different and nowhere near the same scale. I always assumed the whole ‘red solo cup’ thing was just something from movies and it’s pretty funny to see how it’s all true. It’s hard to pick a favourite since there have genuinely been so many awesome shows; if I was forced to pick one spot I guess it would be University of Arizona. My first ever college show was there, I’ve played a bunch there since (including 8 shows in 24 hours) and they always go crazy hard.

Your Two Friends remix is killing on Spotify and you’re also spinning at Echostage DC with them on the 10th. How did this remix come about?

I love those dudes, Matt & Eli and I have become good friends over the last few months. They asked me to be on a bunch of their last headlining tour dates and therefore have Echostage with them too this week. The remix came about pretty casually, they sent me a ton of their new music and mentioned how they were doing a remix pack for Take it Off and wanted me to take a stab at it. I, of course, said yea and now it’s one of my favorite remixes to date, looking forward to spinning it out!

You recently died your hair blonde! Give us the story there.

It all happened kind of quickly to be honest. One night I was sitting in the studio and I felt a bit too content. I wanted to spice things up in a pretty big way and thought dying my hair was the right way to go about it. I’ve thought about going blonde for a little bit so I already knew what I wanted it to look like.

Earlier this year you wrapped up your Semester Abroad Tour hitting 15+ stops around the country, including festivals Electric Zoo, Gold Rush & Tomorrowland. What’s consistent touring in the US like while living in Europe?

To be honest it’s definitely not easy but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I mostly spend Monday- Wednesday in London and then leave for the weekend shows. The jet lag is really bad and my sleeping pattern is completely bizarre as a result but it’s just about keeping it manageable. The only alternative is staying in the US during the week between shows, but then I don’t see my friends / family for months on end so i’m happy to go back & forth, I’ve gotten pretty good at sleeping on planes!

‘Say Hi’ with Austin Mahone just hit 10 million streams on Spotify. Are you working with any other notable vocalists or collaborations at all?

Hitting 10 million just on Spotify is pretty surreal, it’s a track I started to write in my dorm room; Austin and I had a blast finishing it off. At the moment I’m really enjoying writing / singing all my stuff myself, and once it’s written I tend to think about the kind of voice I think would be good and reaching out from there. So I’m always scouring the internet listening to a bunch of artists & singers to find the next thing. As for productions, I have a lot of new music in the works so we’ll have to see what’s to come!

When can we expect new music? The EP ?

Very soon… like the next few weeks soon! I’m releasing several new Classifieds and have nearly the entire EP complete. Get ready for some brand new music!

New Avicii Song “Tough Love” Drops Tomorrow

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 12:51

The rollout for Avicii’s posthumous album TIM continues tomorrow with his second single, “Tough Love” featuring Agnes, Vargas & Lagola.

Fervent Avicii fans have already found a leak to the track, showing off a more Arabic/Indian style of production, particularly in the strings and melody. Vargas & Lagola, AKA Vincent Pontare and Salem Al Fakir, worked with Avicii on many other productions like “Silhouettes” and “Hey Brother.”

Writes DJ Mag, “The track was 80% finished at the time of the EDM star’s death in April 2018 and features vocals from Vargas and his wife, award winning Swedish singer/songwriter Agnes.”

“This one needs to be a duet,” Avicii had written in his notes while working on the track. “Coolest thing would be a real couple. Or a couple that have worked together enough to be almost considered a couple!”

“Oddly enough, the Indian influences fit perfectly into a song we were working on, something that was so typical of Tim” Vincent Pontare wrote in an official statement. “He was a melodic genius.”

TIM is out in full on June 6. You can listen to the first single “SOS” from the album here. You can watch a video detailing Pontare and Al Fakir’s creative process while finishing ‘Tough Love’ below. (Note: the video is blocked in some regions.)

Telekinesis’ Smooth Unleashes the ‘Monster Inside’ [Eatbrain Podcast]

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 22:54

Telekinesis are probably one of the hardest-hitting acts in neurofunk at the moment, having toggled back and forth between Eatbrain and Blackout for their last few releases and stunning the dancefloors with their chunky synths and unrelenting hard beats.

While they’ve given no indication of splitting Smooth out of Telekinesis has made his solo debut on Eatbrain recently with the EP Monster Inside. It’s another hard-hitting release full of explosive bangers and heavy basslines. Now Eatbrain have also released their customary Eatbrain podcast featuring Smooth, so the neurofunk world can get a good sense of what his solo vibes are about. Not to mention over 90 minutes of heavy hard bass.

Monster Inside is a little more stripped down compared to the last Telekinesis release In My Mind but it’s clear that Smooth did this on purpose. The opening track “Roly Poly” seems a study for Smooth in sound design and rolling drumline composition while in the title track he plays with minimal beats, tempo and ambient melody. “Ride Out” featuring Coppa also has some fun melodic and cinematic elements. Fans would likely find this track to be the most like recent Telekinesis tracks were it not for Coppa’s heavy lyrics adding even more dimension. Closing track “Devil’s Head” seems to combine all the experiments Smooth was tinkering with in other tracks and with its complexity, sound design and ravey feel is a great highlight to cap off the EP.

Smooth’s Eatbrain podcast is even more of a journey through Smooth’s exploratory mind, as he pairs classic Telekinesis jams, some more of his own tracks from Viper and GetHype and lots of current and classic bangers. It’s a rollercoaster of a mix with lots of twists, turns and unexpected pairings, not unlike Monster Inside itself.

It will be interesting to see where Smooth himself and Telekinesis as a group go from here, both style-wise and with upcoming releases. It seems, however, that the members of Telekinesis still have a lot to offer the DnB world, whether they’re together or on solo projects.

Monster Inside is out now on Eatbrain and available to stream or purchase by clicking here. Check out Eatbrain’s

REPORT: Woodstock 50 Must Raise $30 Million By Friday To Save Festival

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 19:48

In order for Woodstock 50 to be saved, the music festival needs to raise another $30 million by Friday, according to multiple reports.

Though music fans have become increasingly skeptical of the event, founder Michael Lang is still reassuring the public that the festival will go on. Recently, he has gone on a “media blitz” with over half a dozen publications to ensure people know it’s not over — yet.

However, the music festival will need to pony up another $30 million by this Friday to keep the 3-day event from being canceled. Otherwise, more headliners are sure to pull out, resulting in a domino effect.

There are more complications in addition to these financial woes. Lang says CID Entertainment is on board to produce the event, taking over for Superfly. However, CID has yet to confirm such a development.

In addition, Woodstock 50 still has yet to secure a mass-gathering permit for the festival. Another huge red flag.

The original funder, Dentsu Aegis previously pulled out and canceled the event altogether. Lang immediately snapped back, arguing the company didn’t have the power to do so. Now, he’s taking legal action.

In a letter to Woodstock 50’s original investors, Lang writes: “Honor the law and your obligations, stop interfering with our efforts to put on this wonderful event, and return the $17 million you improperly took.”

Lang and his new attorney have launched a claim against the company, claiming it “illegally swept approximately $17 million from the festival bank account.”

Acquiring an emergency $30 million in funding is most definitely the “Hail Mary” pass for Woodstock 50. For a more detailed play-by-play, see here.

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 19:45

A huge, illegal Indian rave outside of New Delhi led to an equally huge bust, in which over 190 revelers were detained.

According to a report, the party-goers were mainly students of universities and colleges in Delhi and Noida. Gautam Budh Nagar police force raided and broke up the rave held at a farmhouse in Sector 135 on Saturday night.

“We had got a tip-off that a rave party was being held at a farmhouse in the area. Following this, a special team was formed and a raid carried wherein 161 men and 31 women were held at the spot,” said Vaibhav Krishna, Senior Superintendent of Police, Gautam Buddh Nagar.

Five alleged organizers were among those arrested: Kapil Singh Bhati, Adnan Ahmed, Pankaj Sharma, Balesh Kohli and Amit Tyag.

Police said liquor, hookah and “intoxicants” were being served illegally.

“We have also managed to seize 31 hookahs, 112 beer bottles along with 30 liquor bottles that were meant for sale in Delhi only. A case under relevant sections of Excise Act, Food Safety and Standards Act, COTP Act has now been registered,” said Krishna.

Although it was not confirmed by officials if there were any minors present, another report revealed those arrested ranged in age between 18 – 22 years old.

GRiZ’s 2019 Red Rocks Shows Might Be His Last

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 19:45

GRiZ may be returning to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre for the last time — and you don’t want to miss it. GRiZ Rocks takes place Friday and Saturday, August 30 and 31 this year for back-to-back nights.

The Colorado resident and producer will perform a bespoke set, taking attendees on a two-night journey through his decade-long collection of original productions. Each night is in store for a different experience, both worth seeing if you can swing it.

Friday’s performance will span classic hits and early foundational favorites from his 2010-2017 catalog while Saturday will showcase tracks from his recently-released studio album Ride Waves, as well as some unreleased material you won’t want to miss.

GRiZ has recently hinted that his 5th return may be his last, at least for a while. Fans speculate he may be working on his own festival experience. This will undoubtedly be the epic close of an era.

I'm planning something special ???? keep it locked in here w us for more info soon ????

— GRiZ (@Griz) May 5, 2019

Speaking to 303, Griz said: “I want to add a level of something new, I want to express some level of technical wonderment or some really cool show, something that’s next level for myself.

“[…] On the business side of things, I need to be able to seat more people and have some more phenomenal shit to show. With Red Rocks, I know we’ve maxed that out.”

Pre-sale GA and VIP tickets will be available from Tuesday, May 7 at 10 am MT until Thursday, May 9 at 10 pm MT, with password: ridewaves. The general on-sale will follow on Friday, May 10 at 10 am MT.

Game Of Thrones Quietly Removes The Coffee Cup From This Past Weekend’s Episode

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 19:41

This past Sunday, Season 8 Episode 4 of the hit TV series Game Of Thrones, “The Last of the Starks,” aired on HBO. Fans are still saying what they will about the show’s writing and plot at this point heading into the series finale, but others were more focused on something else: that coffee cup.

While some pushed conspiracy theories that the cup was some sort of guerrilla marketing, Bernie Caulfield, an executive producer on the show, confirms the offending cup was just a simple mistake.  “We’re sorry!” Caulfield said in an interview with WNYC radio.

Now, presumably sometime overnight, HBO has seemingly digitally removed the cup from its scene. Fans watching on streaming services like HBO GO will no longer see the cup — obviously, if you recorded the original airing, you will still be able to find it.

Season 8 Episode 5 of Game Of Thrones airs this coming Sunday, May 12.

Techno Festival-Goers Treated For Hypothermia After Temps Drop Below Freezing

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 17:55

Rave-goers at Teknival in France’s Creuse region experienced plunging temperatures and unexpected snowfall on Saturday night. The weather, typically 12°C or 53.6°F this time of year, dropped to -3°C or 26.6°F (below freezing).

Approximately 10,000 were in attendance and about 30 people were treated by medics on site. Some were treated for hypothermia, after several inches of frigid snow plagued the night. It’s not atypical for the region to experience such shifts in temperature.

Festival organizers did everything they could do to help keep attendees warm. Small fires were started across the grounds and the Red Cross aided in handing out survival blankets.

Still, two people were rushed to the hospital.

According to local media reports, the 26th installment of Teknival was unauthorized. Every year, the location changes and is revealed last-minute, as part of the underground techno movement.

The French military branch that owns the remote site reportedly submitted a formal complaint following the event.

Google Brings Back The Headphone Jack for Its Affordable New Pixel 3a Phones

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 16:25

Last year, Google launched the Pixel 3 as its flagship phone. Like the Pixel 2, it was still missing the headphone jack but had great hardware and software powered by Google. This year, Google is updating its flagship with the Pixel 3A and 3A XL — and best of all, it starts at just $399. Oh, and the headphone jack is back.

You’re pretty much never going to get a deal like this on another comparable Android phone, with a similar camera and hardware. Even the XL starts at just $479. However, for these lower prices, there are some concessions to be made.

The phones don’t have chips as strong as the $750+ phones you could get. As such, some things like opening apps will be slower. There also isn’t a separate image processing chip, so saving pictures takes a second or two longer, but it doesn’t affect the quality of the images taken. Other things like overall build strength and screen take a slight dip, as well, as you’d expect.

All in all, despite the small difference in performance, it’s an incredible budget cell phone. Watch the review from The Verge below.

Dealer Caught with “Smorgasbord” of Drugs En Route To Burning Man Sentenced

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 13:20

A man caught en-route to Burning Man last year with a “smorgasbord” of drugs has been sentenced to 34 months in prison.

Alexander Zelyakovsky, 46, was reportedly caught with massive amounts of drugs on the first day of the festival, which took place in Black Rock Desert. He was driving a truck through Colorado, Burning Man bound, when he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop.

The New Yorker had in total, “1125 grams of ecstasy, 376 grams of Psilocyn mushrooms, .0173 grams of LSD, 229 grams of cocaine and $26,745 in cash.” All intended for distribution at Burning Man.

In addition to his prison sentence, Zelyakovsky faces six-months house arrest and a total 3-year supervised release.

Sensu Drops Invigorating New Single, “Escape”

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 12:55

The rollout for Sensu’s debut album continues with her latest track “Escape.”

“Escape” is the first instrumental track released from the album, and it has a very dreamy vibe to it. The arps give it a sort of Flume-esque characteristic, but the melody and feelings behind it give it a unique and effervescent quality as it bursts from your speakers.

“This track means a lot to me because it was the first track I made for the album and it’s been over a year since I started creating it. It has that beautiful, melancholic vibe to it but it also has so much energy in it. The track takes you on a mind journey but at the same time you feel like standing up and running away from things going on in your head. That’s how I feel about it and that’s why I love it so much.” – Sensu

Sensu’s first full-length album Embrace is slated to release on Friday, September 6 via her own Quartz Records, freshly signed to Universal Music. Listen to “Escape” below.

ARTY Desperately Wants To Remix Swedish House Mafia’s Latest ID

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 12:10

ARTY’s name was brought back into the wider public eye yesterday as he and/or his team filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Marshmello. (Read more about that here.) Now, I suppose as more people are looking through his tweets and posts as of late, we’ve seen that he really, really wants to remix Swedish House Mafia’s latest ID from their Tele2 Arena show in Stockholm.

The song, “Underneath It All,” is “one of the most beautiful written songs I’ve ever heard in my life,” says Arty. Truly, “Underneath” is a wonderful song, and something that fans probably weren’t expecting as it doesn’t have any discernible drop in its structure.

«Underneath it all” ID by @swedishousemfia is one of the most beautiful written songs I’ve ever heard in my life. Those lyrics will be timeless. My dream would come true to do the remix for this song. Go, check it out on YouTube, cry it through, feel it through, its incredible

— ARTY (@artymusic) May 5, 2019

Swedish House Mafia just rounded out the first of three shows on their new tour since reuniting at Ultra Music Festival in 2018. Next up is Mexico City, then Ultra Korea, followed by Tinderbox Festival. You can see their full tour route here.

Listen to “Underneath It All” again below.

Illenium Finally Reveals Release Date of Highly Anticipated Collab with Jon Bellion

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 21:33

After debuting his next forthcoming track, “Good Things Fall Apart” with Jon Bellion, last week at Ubbi Dubbi, Illenium has finally revealed to fans the release date for this epic collaboration: May 13.

Throwing away the typical Friday release date (because he’s Illenium and he can), Illenium is spacing out this track one week apart and leading fans on an epic waiting game. But even the man himself simply can’t wait for this one to come out, tweeting, “Normally I don’t rt unreleased songs BUT IM SO FKN EXCITED FOR THIS ONE OMG!!”

I can say I’ve heard the track in full quality, and it has the potential to be the song of the summer. Or barring that, it will be featuring in every teen coming of age movie for the next year. It has just the right blend of pop and dance, and relatable lyrics that make a fine point to veer away from cheesy.

“Good Things Fall Apart” from Illenium and Jon Bellion officially comes out a week from today! See the album art below.

Your EDM Premiere: EDDIE – Nein [mau5trap]

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 21:29

Rare are the moments that you’d find me anywhere techno at a festival or local event, but if EDDIE was playing… I might just drop in. He’s got a new EP called Disembodied coming out tomorrow on mau5trap, but Your EDM has the exclusive premiere of “Nein” here and now.

This is what I consider the highlight of the EP, the grittiest, gnarliest, fiercest out of the bunch. The melody keeps it from monotony and that typical techno burnout when there’s only a kick drum ad nauseum. “Nein” shares similarities more closely with electro and progressive house than it does with traditional techno, but there are definitely elements to be found of it, as well.

“Nein” in particular has the sort of suspense and release that you might find in an epic movie fight scene a la John Wick or any Jason Statham film. Imagine, if you will, every hit of the kick is another foe getting bodied and sent to the ground. The energy is palpable, and that’s the main reason I could listen to this track over and over and over.

Check out “Nein” below and keep an eye out for the full EP tomorrow!

Coachella Live Stream Hits Record Viewership For Weekend 1

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 20:15

Each year, Coachella meets and exceeds the high standards it sets for itself, as well as those set by its attendees. This year was no different, with plenty of special moments throughout both weekends. Even for those of us watching the live stream at home, nearly 70 artists streamed their full sets including Billie Eilish, Gesaffelstein, Zedd, Weezer, NGHTMRE, Dillon Francis, and of course all the headliners.

This was the first year that both weekends were going to be live streamed in full, but clearly everyone was still more excited for the first weekend. Weekend One of the live stream this year was the most-viewed to date with about 82.9 million live views. That’s the highest viewership for the festival’s streaming since YouTube began its exclusive broadcasts of Coachella in 2011 from the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio, CA, and up more than 90% from 2018, according to YouTube.

Weekend Two featured a “curated” schedule of artists, featuring more from the Yuma tent, as well as a slightly modified list from the other stages.

Coachella latest contract with YouTube will see its live stream on the platform exclusively through 2021.

MYRNE & yetep – No Doubt feat. Kyle Reynolds

Mon, 05/06/2019 - 19:52

We’re just in the middle of spring, but we can already feel summer is on its way. (Maybe I’m biased in LA where seasons aren’t really a thing.) With the changing seasons, music follows to keep the mood consistent and give a soundtrack to your adventures and vacations. MYRNE & yetep just put out a new summer heater with Kyle Reynolds, “No Doubt,” that is sure to be played on many a road trip this summer.

Equal parts gritty rock and melodic feels, “No Doubt” works by weaving each of its artists’ influences into a beautiful tapestry. “It represents the resolve, constancy, and determination required to navigate both the worlds of personal relationships and the pursuit of artistry,” MYRNE states.

To have “no doubt” is a luxury that many don’t have, and hopefully this song inspires some confidence in those who might need just a little extra boost. Listen below.
