Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge Show Us Their "Lionheart"

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 16:15

"Lionheart" is the second single off of their forthcoming album.

Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge are here to prove they are a match made in trance heaven with their latest single, "Lionheart" featuring PollyAnna. This is the second release off their forthcoming album, Kingdom United. 

The two UK producers have been collaborating for years and share the label Garuda together. Last November they teased fans with a new album and they have come to deliver. The first track was the album's title song, "Kingdom United," which was received well with beautiful cinematic production. "Lionheart" is headed on the same trajectory. 

The track has all the elements of a classic trance song. Their use of uplifting synths pairs perfectly with PollyAnna's angelic vocals. "Lionheart" is set to be one of those tracks the entire crowd will be belting and swaying along too. Its big room energy is contagious. Emery and Wallbridge play up their strengths of melodies and production beautifully with this one. 

Emery has been making waves on the trance scene for over a decade. With his legendary projects such as Laserface, Electric for Life and Stereosonic, he continues to prove himself as one of the best in the business. 

Wallbridge and Emery have been pals for some time now. A few years ago they paired up on their famous CVNT5 parody act, which mocked ghost producers and other EDM stereotypes. Wallbridge was brought on to revamp the Garuda label as a co-owner and since then the rest has been history. The first release on the label in 2018 was Wallbridge's track "Surrender" featuring the iconic Darude

Lucchii & Rielle Make Bite This Debut with "Lost"

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 14:30

Lucchii's new single is hypnotizing.

Lucchii returns with new music featuring New York-based singer Rielle on "Lost." Making his Bite This debut, Lucchii sticks to his strengths. With an engaging counterbalance between sweeping textures and an intricately scripted drop of robotic synths, Lucchii shows there's still potential for innovation within the trap music genre.

Rielle has been on the rise netting a growing number of vocal features in the electronic space. Her previous feature was on Riggi & Piros' "Miss Me" via Thrive Music. Now, Rielle's tone takes a darker turn on "Lost" delivering a hypnotic vocal performance. 

In addition a growing number of cosigns on tastemaker labels, Lucchii is hot off of a recent tour in India. With international growth markets demonstrating an interest in his sound, Lucchii's growth outlook remains strong.

WE ARE FURY Remix "Forever" by Ekali & Medasin ft. Elohim [PREMIERE]

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 14:16

Following a monumental trap single release in January, WE ARE FURY are back with a surprise release for fans.

We thought this song couldn't get any better... and we were wrong. Joachim Speidel and Stuart Brookes of WE ARE FURY have released their take on Ekali and Medasin's iconic collab "Forever" featuring Elohim. Far from the light and happy vibe of the original track, WE ARE FURY adds their own twist on a classic electronic anthem.  

Commenting on the release, Speidel said:

"We took a different approach to this remix because we actually built it around the lyrics. There's a line that goes, "I just wanna live in your arms where I'm safe forever, keep me safe here forever" and we took a really dark approach and interpreted that as the character talking to death. We took this concept into the production and had the song get progressively darker and more eerie, ending with the mid tempo drop. It was really cool working on the art as well because we took Nathan's greenhouse concept and flipped it on its head. Dylan, our graphic designer, made the surroundings cold and dark, and we added this dark figure inside which would represent the idea of death visually."

The Canadian duo built the foundation of their sound on a series of acclaimed remixes and their "Forever" remix is no different. It takes Elohim's innocent and peaceful vocal and surrounds it with their signature production. A dark, menacing reese bass comes in in the second verse and then builds towards a heavily distorted midtempo drop. This track is truly something we haven't heard from the duo yet, and we love it!

The remix is available now and can be streamed and downloaded here for free. You can catch WE ARE FURY at Stacked with Excision and FVDED in the Park Festival 2019.

Andy King's Fyre Festival Fellatio Story May have Landed Him a TV Series

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 13:16

Andy King has had a change of heart about becoming a meme.

Andy King begrudgingly amassed internet fame following the raunchy firsthand account he gave in Netflix's Fyre Festival documentary. It may end up paying off for the much-memed viral celebrity, as he's revealed that the notoriety may translate into a series of on-camera opportunities.

During a filmed interview, King had explained that Fyre brainchild Billy McFarland had asked him to perform sexual acts on a customs official to get them to release crates of Evian water. He told TMZ that he originally begged the directors of Fyre Festival: The Greatest Party That Never Happened to remove the segment of his interview detailing his run-in with customs from the film.

By the looks of things the blowback hasn't been all bad for King, however. He went on to explain: 

"I probably wouldn't be where I am today if it had been taken out. I mean, how I've become a social media hero over a situation like that, I'm in total shock. But I'm riding with it, it's a lot of fun. TV offers to do cameos in movies. I'm doing a cameo tomorrow night for the Spirit Awards. I'm shooting a movie in March, we're working on a few different TV show concepts right now. I have three offers for those, it's incredible."

Fyre Festival may well be remembered as the single biggest flop in music festival history. Promoted largely by social media influencers, the luxury event was supposed to showcase such world-class talent as Disclosure, Lee Burridge and Major Lazer. When attendees arrived on the Exhumas islands, however, they were met with heaps of garbage and harsh living conditions. 

Alongside McFarland was Ja Rule, who recently told TMZ he might try his hand at launching a festival again. The '90s rapper has followed his remarks up by saying that he's happy for the success King has found as a result of his appearance in the documentary. 

Andy King has not formally announced his involvement with any specific TV series or production studio at the time of writing.

Bethel Woods Splits Woodstock 50th Celebration into Three Events

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 12:13

INVNT has parted ways with Bethel Woods and Live Nation as a result.

Following last November's revelation that the original Woodstock founders would not be involved in the 50th anniversary event at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the festival now appears to be dividing even further. Originally slated as a three-day gathering over three days, Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival will now comprise three separate days - and INVNT has cut ties with the event as a result. 

“INVNT will not be involved in the new format and we wish Bethel Woods and Live Nation, as well as the organizers of the other 50th anniversary celebrations taking place around the world, the very best,” said INVNT CEO Scott Cullather in a statement. He remarked that the agency remains proud of its role in the event up to this point and the attention it drew to the original 1969 festival.

Woodstock Ventures, LLC co-founder Michael Lang had previously told the Poughkeepsie Journal that he had "definite plans" for a 50th anniversary event. Shortly after it came to light that he would not play a role in the event taking place at Bethel Woods - the location of the original Woodstock festival - he announced that the "real" Woodstock 50th event would take place in Watkins Glen, New York along the same range of dates. 

Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival has mentioned something called "A Season of Song & Celebration" on social media, but has yet to formally announce the new Woodstock 50th anniversary celebration format at the time of writing.

Felix Cartal Teams up with Lights on Latest Release, "Love Me"

Wed, 02/20/2019 - 11:15

As his first release of 2019, "Love Me" begins a series of brand new tracks.

After the success of last year's poignantly self-reflective album Next Season, Taelor Deitcher, better known as Felix Cartal, has seemingly moved on to a more upbeat path with his latest collaboration, "Love Me."

The dance pop track weaves together sweet-sounding chords, serene melodies, singer/songwriter Lights' dazzling vocals and lyrics that leave you wishing that love was as easy going and light as the song itself.

Known for producing emotive songs like, "Get What You Give," "Faces, and "Hold Tight," the Canadian producer has a way of making music that leaves you positively hopeful by the end of each song. In fact, "Get What You Give" was such a resonating remix cover of the New Radicals' hit that it became his first Canadian certified gold record and was nominated for a JUNO award in 2017. 

Since then Deitcher has grown and honed his skills in conveying complex emotions and making an impact on his listeners. In 2019 the talented producer's 2018 album, Next Season, was nominated for another JUNO award for electronic album of the year.

Coincidentally enough, his JUNO award nominations led Deitcher to meeting Lights at a party for the music award event and it ultimately led to the creation of "Love Me." Lights told Billboard that Deitcher sent her the track after their meeting and, after going back to her studio, she hashed out the verses within an hour. 

It's the first time both Canadian artists have worked together, but according to them the process was easy and creatively satisfying. Lights went on to tell Billboard that it was "probably close to the fastest I've ever come up with something I'm proud of. The chorus and rest of the track evolved since then, but in music, you really crave the moments when things come easily, and this was one of them."

Deitcher also believed that working on "Love Me" with Lights was a true collaboration, saying:

"The thing that made this collaboration so special is that we're literally the only two people involved in this song. I wrote an instrumental, Lights wrote an initial lyric idea, we refined the chorus and arrangement together, then she tracked her vocals herself and I did all the production myself. It's just us two creating every single piece of this song. A true collab. I love how it turned out."

It's exciting, to say the least, when artists just click and create something that surpasses all expectations, but what’s even more exciting is knowing that "Love Me" is just the first of many new Felix Cartal tracks to come. If they're anything like this collaboration, this might just be another shining year for Deitcher.

KUURO Bring the Flames with Sinister Indie Release "Inferno"

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 21:20

Prepare to be burned in KUURO's inferno.

Artists release go-to club hits all of the time, but not quite like KUURO. The Los Angeles, California-based duo bring the flames in their second release of 2019, "Inferno." 

"Inferno" comes as an independent release shortly after their successful cover of Post Malone's "Better Now" last month. Furthermore, they wrapped up a 20-date tour with appearances in festivals like Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, Veld Festival, Summer Camp, Beyond Wonderland, and many more. This menacing new track heats things up after the mellow yet edgy "Better Now" cover by bringing an exceptional blend of their trademark trap and moombahton sound.

With the trap-like beginning, "Inferno" opens with a sliding melody and moody pads. KUURO's signature percussive elements shine through, especially during the build. The implementation of somewhat African-sounding percussion diversifies the drop even more. The brass stabs only add a sharper edge to this fired up bass sword. The second drop comes around the corner and smacks you with an untamed moombahton groove. It's not over- or under-done; it's just right.  

"'Inferno' went through quite a few iterations, but eventually came together as a the eclectic mix of genres that it is," states Luke Shipstad, one half of KUURO. "It's been a favorite of ours to play out at shows for a while now, and highly anticipated by fans, so we finally felt like the time was right to share our return to moombah with everyone," added Jordin Post, the other half of KUURO. 

"Inferno" was released on February 15th and is available on all digital platforms. Additionally, KUURO are providing the release as a free download via ToneDen.

JADED releases first single on Don Diablo's Hexagon label

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 21:16

Bringing in artists Black Caviar and Antony & Cleopatra for the track, "Slippin'" is well-crafted and fresh.

For their first release of the year, London-based trio JADED hits the ground running with their first track on Don Diablo's Hexagon label. 

In collaboration with Black Caviar and Antony & Cleopatra, the single combines a catchy deep house bass line with upbeat synths. It's a dance track ready for the club, with driving hooks and bouncy reverb. 

JADED has previously released songs on Claude VonStroke's Dirtybird Records imprint and Black Butter, a British label that has broken artists Clean Bandit and Rudimental. With a remix-heavy discography including reworks of Avicii, Rita Ora and Paul McCartney tracks, they have also gained support for their European club house sound with singles including "In the Morning," released in 2017, and "Pancake" from 2018. 

Black Caviar, a New York-based duo known for their remix of Tiësto's "BOOM," brought their dark and heavy style to "Slippin.'" Antony & Cleopatra, who toured with Alison Wonderland for her Australian Scarehouse Project, balance out Black Caviar with their funkier, tech house sound.

JOYRYDE Announces Release Date of Lead Album Single "I'm Gone"

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 21:05

The wait is nearly over for new JOYRYDE.

After a prolonged delay - and few updates - JOYRYDE is ending the drought with the announcement of his album's lead single. "I'm Gone" from his forthcoming album Brave is set to release Friday, February 22nd. 

Ever since the postponement of JOYRYDE's debut album in November of 2018, fans have been eagerly been awaiting updates from the "Hot Drum" producer. The album was officially delayed due to "technical reasons" but details surrounding "I'm Gone" have drawn new speculation. 

First, JOYRYDE initially claimed "AGAIN WIDA" was the lead single for his album Brave. The JOYRYDE & Skrillex collaboration was released via Skrillex's OWSLA imprint in October, 2018. However, this Friday, "I'm Gone" will be released via HARD Recs. Naturally, it begs the question as to what happened between JOYRYDE and OWSLA, given he had several prominent releases on the label previously. 

No matter the politics surrounding the album, JOYRYDE's latest work will likely be met with the same anticipation. Pre-save JOYRYDE's "I'm Gone" here and keep on the lookout for more forthcoming announcements surrounding his debut album.

Marshmello Observes Moment of Silence for Soldiers Killed in Pulwama Attack

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 19:46

Marshmello paid respects prior to starting his set at the VH1 Supersonic Festival.

At his recent main stage festival set in Pune, India, Marshmello observed a two-minute moment of silence recognizing the fallen soldiers of the Pulwama terror attack. The silence occurred immediately prior to Marshmello beginning his set at Pune's Vh1 Supersonic Festival

On Thursday, February 14th, over 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) soldiers were killed on the Jammu-Srinagar highway. A Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an SUV into a security convoy and triggered explosives. 

As the moment of silence occurred at Marshmello's set, the flag of India was also projected in the background. According to DNA India, Marshmello was the only international artist at the festival to recognize the attacks and pay tribute to the victims. 

The festival set at Vh1 Supersonic concluded Marshmello's latest multi-stop tour in India.

SoundCloud Adds Distribution Services for Premium Accounts

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 19:06

SoundCloud distribution will be available to SoundCloud Pro and SoundCloud Pro Unlimited users.

SoundCloud can now say they are the first streaming platform with built-in distribution services. The Berlin-based company announced artists will be able to upload their music directly to Amazon Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Tencent, YouTube, and Instagram using SoundCloud distribution.

Currently in open beta for premium accounts, SoundCloud's distribution tool will additionally allow artists to keep 100% of their rights, and all of their third-party royalties accrued on other platforms. Eligible artists will be informed via email when the tool becomes available to them.

Though SoundCloud is the first streaming service to directly integrate their distribution in-platform, Spotify and Apple Music seem to be headed in a similar direction. Last year, Spotify acquired a stake in DistroKid, and Apple acquired London-startup Platoon

For SoundCloud, being first to market with their new distribution service means artists will spend less time jumping between platforms, and more time on SoundCloud. Positioning themselves as a central hub for music and audio, SoundCloud's innovation presents a value proposition to independent artists looking to expand their digital imprint.

Underground Vibes of the Week / 027

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 16:50

Essenger, AHH OOH, BRUX and more featured on this week's installment.

SoundCloud is considered by many as the go-to platform for sharing music independently, and connecting with fellow artists and fans. Its direct, artist-centric approach has enabled bedroom artists to find fanbases all over the world, as well as leverage their growth on the platform into year-long careers. 

In this series, our aim is to showcase the best new music we discover on the platform, music that oftentimes can’t be found anywhere else. In addition, we shine the light on successful artists that are either now breaking through on the platform or have used it to attract an active following in the past.

This week's feature includes gems by up-and-comer Essenger, talented Willaris K., mysterious BRUX and more. 

"Dissolve" - Essenger

Essenger spent years honing his craft and it shows. Bringing together EDM, synthwave and indie elements, he creates complex sonic worlds filled with finite details that really allow him to stand out from the crowd. On "Dissolve," his emo-inspired vocals build up the tension before two unique drops explode into a cataclasm of synths and electric guitar riffs. 

"Trouble" (Adrien Rux Remix) - CLMD

Adrien Rux's first release in a while is a well-produced remix for Norwegian act CLMD. The young producer fills the space with subtle details and gritty bass, making up for a chill yet impactful tune; one of many he'll be releasing throughout the year. 

"Cruel" - ASTN

19-year-old producer and vocalist ASTN comes out with one of his most uplifting and energetic tunes yet on "Cruel." Filtered synths and drums introduce the song before the talented artist's vocals come in, creating a dancefloor-ready vibe. 

"I Know" - AHH OOH

Hebinomichi label-head AHH OOH creates a warm sonic atmosphere with "I Know," his first release in two years, singing about overcoming life’s storms and coming out the other side with love and light. 

"Lately" Ft. Conor Byrne - Rival (OUT Feb 18)

Talented producer Rival's latest single is an electronic-influenced, laid-back pop vibe. 

"everything" (ft. jessica) - mybe

Out on KUMO Collective, an eclectic brand that always manages to find the greatest upcoming talents in the SoundCloud scene, "everything" by mybe is soulful gem, featuring smooth vocals by singer jessica

"Soul Sacrifice" - Dombresky 

Having already gathered a massive amount of support, Dombresky's funky gem "Soul Sacrifice" proves the artist is one of the most exciting emerging talents in house music. 

"Belong" - BRUX

Evolving past her previous dark and psychedelic style, mysterious artist BRUX's latest release is a progressive, house-influenced vibe. 

"Natural Selection" - Willaris. K

On "Natural Selection" Willaris. K creates an eight-minute, techno-infused journey. 

"vice versa" - DKVPZ

Talented Soulection duo DKVPZ go crazy on "vice versa," an uplifting vibe driven by high-tempo drum patterns, synths and vocal chops. 

"ivory" - MANTRABLU

MANTRABLU's showcases his skills perfectly on the organic yet electronic-feeling "ivory," slowly introducing more elements and going from minimal to atmospheric and complex in the span of 5+ minutes. 

"Rain" - B-Dos

"Rain" marks the latest release by artist-centric Phuture Collective, a quirky track where B-Dos goes crazy over three unique drops. 

"torn" - Mir

Mir's "torn" probably marks one of his most ambitious releases yet, characterized by hard bass, unique vocal chops, and knocking drums. 

"I Dont" - Eris

Uplifting melodies and clipping kicks go crazy on "I Dont" by Eris, an uplifting, short-but-sweet vibe. 

"2359" (feat. jack cates) - Dretty Pope

Dretty Pope's latest single via PIL Society is an organic, lo-fi vibe.

Martin Garrix Announces "No Sleep" ft. Bonn via STMPD RCRDS

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 15:39

Martin Garrix's first release of 2019 features a familiar collaborator.

Martin Garrix has remained quiet on the release front so far this year, but that looks to change at the end of the week. The Dutch superstar DJ/producer has announced the release of "No Sleep" featuring Bonn, which will arrive by way of the former artist's STMPD RCRDS imprint.

"No Sleep" will not be the first endeavor for which Martin Garrix (real name Martijn Garritsen) enlisted the help of Bonn. Last year's "High On Life" saw the two artists team up to yield a main stage-friendly crowd mover with just the right amount of radio appeal.

It may prove difficult for Garritsen to make this year any better than his last. When last year's DJ Mag Top 100 awards were announced, it came to light that he had been named #1 DJ in the world for the third year in a row. Between that and his rapid-fire succession of releases coinciding with Amsterdam Dance Event, 2018 marked a high point for the young talent.

"No Sleep" by Martin Garrix featuring Bonn is due out February 22nd by way of STMPD RCRDS. Pre-save it on Spotify here.

Bassnectar Announces Freestyle Sessions Summer Gathering 2019

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 13:29

Freestyle Sessions returns to Colorado for the third year in a row.

The bass head community of Colorado is in for a special treat this summer, as they have been the past two years. Bassnectar has announced the third annual Freestyle Sessions Summer Gathering, which will return to the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield from June 7th-June 9th.

As with previous editions, the event will afford Bassnectar (real name Lorin Ashton) an opportunity to broaden his musical palette outside what he typically plays at major music festivals. Each night of the event will have different themes: "Freestlye," "Dreamtempo" and "Wildstyle," in that order. Joining him are such bass music mainstays as Thelem, Pushloop and Phutureprimitive.

Although Ashton rode the dubstep explosion of 2010-2012 straight to international superstardom, his discography is quite diverse. His first release under the Bassnectar alias was a breaks mixtape titled Freakbeat for the Beat Freaks which came out via Amorphous Music in 2001. Albums like Mesmerizing the Ultra, which came out in 2006, were more along the lines of trip-hop.

Presale tickets to Bassnectar's Freestyle Sessions Summer Gathering will be available on February 20th, and public onsale starts February 22nd. For more information, visit the event page on his website.

Illenium Debuts Unreleased Song at Believe Music Hall in Atlanta

Tue, 02/19/2019 - 12:21

Illenium's year is off to an exciting start.

It wasn't all that long ago that Illenium released his first single of 2019, but it looks like there's more where that came from. The Denver DJ/producer recently took to the stage at Believe Music Hall in Atlanta, Georgia and gave fans a taste of what lies ahead.

The as-yet-unreleased song he dropped during the performance consists predominantly of a somber male vocal and acoustic guitar melody. As can be seen towards the end of the clip below, tension builds before the release of an effervescent future bass drop.

View the original article to see embedded media.

Releases aside, Illenium's year is already shaping up to be quite the mile marker. At the end of a performance at Terminal 5 in NYC shortly before the year drew to a close, he announced that he will headline Madison Square Garden at some point in 2019. Given his humble origins as a local DJ/producer - and the battle with substance abuse that preceded his rise - his trajectory has proven something of a phenomenon.

Illenium has yet to reveal a title, release date, featured artist or any other information for the ID he debuted at Believe Music Hall at the time of writing.

midnight & ylxr Team Up for Steamy EP, Nocturne

Mon, 02/18/2019 - 19:09

The New York musicians joined forces to create a dark and sexy atmosphere.

midnight's next release sees him team up with with fellow New York producer ylxr once again. The two have joined forces for the moody Nocturne  EP, out February 21st via Majestic Casual Records

Blending soaring falsettos with calculated, tight percussion, Nocturne delivers a perfect balance of a suave lo-fi energy, and enticing, seductive rhythms. Each song on the three-track EP takes a different approach to achieving the same tantalizing result; a sexy groove laced with vocals that could very well serve as an aphrodisiac. 

Downtempo sections in "Promethium" are expertly countered by the heavier percussive areas of the track. "Archon" assumes the role of a more energetic, club-friendly song on the release, with a rolling and electric melody. Nocturne is rounded out by the glitchy and distorted percussion and powerful Malcolm X samples of the socially-charged "Pressure Gradient." 

In his latest work, midnight delivers the soulful, R&B-inspired vocals you've come to expect, layered with ylxr's masterful and forward-thinking production. The "Nocturne" EP is the latest in a series of many collaborative efforts between midnight and ylxr.

Flaremode, Jean Marie, and Matt Joe's "Dolci Pensieri" is the opera/psytrance hybrid that you never knew you needed until now!

Gearing up for a massive 2019, Flaremode, Jean Marie, and Matt Joe come hot out of the gate with their latest release “Dolci Pensieri.” Featuring a sensational vocal performance over a powerful, electrifying arrangement, it's a true electronic anthem sure to see plenty of festival mainstage airtime. If there’s a place you can expect to hear it, it’s going to be at this years edition of TomorrowLand.

True to his name, Flaremode is off to a blazing, fiery start to 2019, releasing an electrifying house single with Danny Ores, titled, “Nutty” just a few weeks ago and continue to DJ regularly on their esteemed Billboard Radio residency. Jean Marie has had a big year already as well, releasing a huge single in January named “Gaia” with Vini Vici and Blastoyz, already racking up over two million streams in less than a month.
