Insight TV is bringing Tomorrowland Winter to your home screen.

Exhale Your Demons with Updog’s Latest Single, “Dying Breath”

Mon, 02/17/2020 - 19:15

Inspired by sonic pioneers such as grandson and gabriel black, Updog returns to Cloudkid for the deeply reflective "Dying Breath."

Launching the project in 2019 with a series of stunning and memorable singles on Cloudkid, the anonymous act Updog has quickly become one of our favorite new acts. With a sound inspired by sonic pioneers such as grandson and gabriel black, Updog closed out the year with his debut Closure EP, cementing his impeccable knack for catchy hooks, flawless production, and deeply evocative lyricism. He has has quickly garnered the support of iconic curators such CloudKid, MrSuicideSheep and xKito.

In his classic electro-rock-n-roll style, Updog shares with us his most potent and moving track to date, a fresh and powerful new single with Cloudkid Records aptly named “Dying Breath.” With lyrics that inspire a sense of self-realization and reflection, Updog's latest delivers a powerful message that playing the blame game is always a losing proposition. In his words:

“This song encompasses a pretty big self-realization I've had over the years after being dumped multiple times by multiple women in my life and having seen multiple friendships end. It's very easy to play the blame game and make yourself the victim who did nothing wrong. The more and more you reflect, however, you realize there was a reason behind that, and most of the time that reason is because you were equally at fault. Thing is, although you know that, you probably will never let the other person know, because your ‘worst self’ and your ego would rather just take that to the grave in order to protect your pride".

A ferocious drop with crashing brass and thunderous 808s contrasts sharply with the somber verses, the result being that "Dying Breath" will take you on an emotional rollercoaster that will help instill the sense of self-realization needed in confronting ego, pride, and all the other things that prevent us from being our true self.

Stream or Download Updog's "Dying Breath" today.

Sullivan King and Wooli Release Epic Collab "Don't Forget Me" on Monstercat

Mon, 02/17/2020 - 18:30

Sullivan King and Wooli joined forces to unleash a collaboration that will leave you in your feels and headbanging at the same time.

Sullivan King and Wooli, two of modern-day bass music's most electrifying acts, have come together for a dramatic new single just in time for festival season. After they teased the song for a few days before its release, fans are beyond excited to finally enjoy "Don't Forget Me."     

Combining both of the bass mainstays' skills, their collaborative effort sees the duo elevate each other to new heights. While the beginning is rather quiet and dramatic, the vocals lead way to an uplifting display of bass spreading good vibes throughout. 

The duo don't let listeners off the hook that easy, however, as the second half of the track is much more sinister. After being properly warmed up, Sullivan King lays down some growling vocals before he and Wooli unleash a headbang-worthy breakdown that will have you in your feelings and headbanging at the same time.

"Don't Forget Me" by Sullivan King and Wooli is out now on Monstercat. You can download or stream the duo's latest single here.

Mon, 02/17/2020 - 17:03

Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis spent their Valentine's Day hard at work on the follow up to "Lost My Mind."

While most of the world was out enjoying dinner and dessert with their significant other or friends, workaholic DJ/producers Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis chose to spend their Valentine's Day in the studio. On Twitter, Alison Wonderland (real name Alexandra Sholler) shared an image of the duo hard at work on their second collaboration.

The work in progress will follow up last year's "Lost My Mind." The mega-collab received multiple remixes from a variety of dance music up and comers as well as a rework from NGHTMRE. The song also inspired a 15-stop co-headline tour that saw the duo travel across North America.

Just recently, Sholler raised $103,000 for the firefighters and wildlife in Australia affected by the massive fires, via a limited edition shirt with all proceeds going to the charity.

At the time of writing, the name or release date for Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis' second collaboration has not yet been revealed.

U.K. DJ/Producer Andrew Weatherall Passes Away at Age 56

Mon, 02/17/2020 - 15:55

A central figure in late '80s acid house, Weatherall also bridged the worlds of rock and electronic music.

English DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall has died at the age of 56. His music career extended back to the 1980s and included collaborations with superstar Paul Oakenfold and rock band Primal Scream, among numerous others.

A statement obtained by The Guardian, Weatherall's management disclosed that he had died at Whipps Cross Hospital in London from pulmonary embolism on the morning of February 17th. "He was being treated in hospital but unfortunately the blood clot reached his heart," reads a passage. "His death was swift and peaceful.”

Weatherall was among the co-founders of a music zine called Boys Own launched in 1987 that evolved into a record label of the same name. He was also a core personality in the acid house movement that swept the U.K. in the late '80s. He was known for having exposed the aforementioned Primal Scream to acid house and working alongside them on the genre-bending 1991 album Screamadelica.

Well-known figures throughout music and beyond have publicly mourned Weaherall's loss. Among them was author Irvine Welsh, who wrote, "Genius is an overworked term but I’m struggling to think of anything else that defines him.”

Steve Aoki Accuses Festival of Falsely Claiming He's on the Lineup

Mon, 02/17/2020 - 15:08

"The promoter is trying to scam fans. Don’t be fooled."

Steve Aoki has shared unsettling news with his Brazilian followers. The Los Angeles DJ/producer says he has been added to the lineup of what looks to be a festival called University Ville without having agreed to perform at the event. 

"To all my Brazilian fans. I am not performing at this festival and was never confirmed to play it," Aoki tweeted on Monday, February 17th. "The promoter is trying to scam fans. Don’t be fooled." He included an image of the flyer with the word "FAKE" superimposed over it.

The flyer appears to have been originally shared via an Instagram account for the event brand that has since been taken offline, as has the official website that was listed in the account's bio. Promotional materials list the dates of the festival as May 7th-10th and the location as Aragoiânia, Goiás. Crystal Skies, Lost Frequencies and others were also announced as headliners.

A spokesperson on behalf of Aoki has not responded to EDM.com's request for comment at the time of writing.

An Emotional Justin Bieber Says He Wants to Protect Billie Eilish From the Music Industry

Sun, 02/16/2020 - 17:01

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1, Justin Bieber talks about his struggles with fame at a young age.

In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1Justin Bieber got emotional speaking on his past experiences in the music industry and wanting to protect Billie Eilish from what he dealt with. 

In the very personal conversation, he talked about his marriage, his health problems, and his experiences in the music business. He went on to explain how it was difficult dealing with fame at such a young age. He then talked about Eilish and how she is experiencing an explosion of fame at a similar age.

In a quote from the interview obtained by Billboard, he explained how he will always be there if she needs advice. In his own words: 

"Yes, I definitely feel protective of her. It was hard for me being that young, and being in the industry, and not knowing where to turn, and everyone telling me they love me, and just turn their back on you in a second. It's hard because I want her to know that she can count on me, but at the end of the day, I don't want to... I'm never going to force myself to be in a relationship with her. It has to be natural, right? I just kind of let her do her thing. If she ever needs me, I'm going to be here for her. Just protecting those moments because people take for granted, encounters. I just want to protect her. I don't want her to lose it. I don't want her to go through anything I went through. I don't wish that upon anybody. If she ever needs me, I'm just a call away."

Eilish responded by sharing a clip of the interview alongside pictures from her childhood showing her in a Justin Bieber T-shirt and photos of her bedroom covered in posters of him with the caption "stream changes" (the name of Bieber's latest single).

Fans got a rare look at Marshmello via a Valentine's Day post on his girlfriend Kelsey Calemine's Instagram. While many couples around the world have posted similar pictures showing love to their partner, this one is dramatically different considering it shows the mysterious artist without his mask.

Many fans, internet personalities, and artists like Diplo showed their love for the couple in the comment section. While she didn't tag Marshmello's account directly, she did tag the account for Dotcom, his non-anonymous project from before he put on the mask and becoming one of the biggest EDM artists in the world.

About a month ago, the Mellogang was excited to see the release of five different remixes of his track with YUNGBLUD and blackbear, "Tongue Tied." Days before that, it was announced that he would be up for Dance Artist of the Year and Dance Song of the Year at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March.

Mau5trap Artist No Mana Releases Debut Album, Secret Level

Sat, 02/15/2020 - 14:49

No Mana opens the next chapter of his career alongside longtime label partner mau5trap.

After several years of building his profile, No Mana has undertaken his debut album release Secret Level. No Mana (real name Jordan Orcaz) is taking the next step alongside longtime label partner mau5trap, who have been backing his music since 2015.

Orcaz has remained a particularly strong brand at the crossroads of dance music and gaming. Throughout his near five years of producing under the No Mana alias, he has created 14 unique two-track EPs starting with 1UP back in 2015. 

In many ways, Secret Level feels like a capstone project. The full 11-track album sees the brightest of No Mana's catchy progressive melodies, and flashy 8-bit synths. For those still unfamiliar with No Mana, it represents a perfect entry point to the producer's virtual world. 

The album sees a handful of collaborations including "Fragile Human" alongside EDDIE. No Mana and EDDIE previously inked a collaboration called "Untitled Forever" after the two met in person during EDDIE's trip to Southern California.    

The debut album release comes amid Orcaz's new "Secret Something Tour." Tickets are on sale for stops through April 11th on the producer's website.

Datsik Updates Images on Socials Fueling Speculation of a New Announcement

Sat, 02/15/2020 - 14:41

Datsik's social media activity suggests that he's following through on his attempt at a comeback.

Three months have passed since Datsik broke an 18-month silence spurred by numerous sexual assault allegations with a video statement. The post drew enough backlash that many doubted the viability of a comeback by the DJ/producer, but he's updated his social media pages as if gearing up for an announcement.

Datsik (real name Troy Beetles) has posted new profile and banner images to his Facebook and Twitter accounts. His Spotify banner has also been switched out with an image that matches the theme of the other channels.

In his November video statement, Beetles said that he spent time in a live-in facility to treat his mental health issues. While response to the video was divided, many social media commentators argued that he failed to take ownership of his misdeeds.

At the time of writing, Beetles has no upcoming tour dates or releases. His spokesperson did not immediately respond to EDM.com's request for comment.

SVDDEN DEATH Appears to Levitate Above Stage in Live Stunt

Sat, 02/15/2020 - 14:09

SVDDEN DEATH is taking his show to new heights.

SVDDEN DEATH pulled off an uncommon stage trick during his set at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. During the show, SVDDEN DEATH (real name Danny Howland) surprised attendees when he levitated above the stage in the middle of a ring of fire visual backdrop.

The seemingly supernatural moment caught everyone off guard including fellow producer Ray Volpe, who was in attendance and caught it on video. 

In the clip Howland appears to rise above the stage, suspended by wires briefly as a visual ring of fire blazes in the background. The symbol is a staple of Howland's VOYD Sets, which are tailored more towards the darker flavors of his dubstep productions. The stunt came in the middle of his performance of "Terrible," a cut from the producer's recent VOYD Vol. 1.5 release. 

The onstage stunt will surely not be the last for Howland. In fact, he already has his next unique show announced for March 6th, where he is planning to take his VOYD set underground. The sold out show titled SVDDEN DEATH Presents: VOYD At The Caverns will take place in Pelham, Tennessee.

Ekali Teases Skrillex Collab at Los Angeles Show

Sat, 02/15/2020 - 14:02

Ekali's long-awaited collaboration with Skrillex will likely come out in 2020.

Skrillex and Ekali's long-awaited collaboration may be close to seeing the light of day. Ekali was captured playing the unreleased track during a performance at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The track was identified as a collaboration between him and Skrillex in a clip posted by Brownies & Lemonade.

It was over a year ago that Ekali posted a teaser of the project on social media, only to delete it shortly thereafter. In the time since, however, he has been more actively testing out the song in his sets. 

In 2020 it seems increasingly likely the song will finally see an official release. Both Skrillex and Ekali are expected to come out with new albums this year. 

Shortly into the new year Ekali released his debut album, A World Away. The producer has been escalating his efforts to release new music and we already know he still has has an album for an unannounced side project expected out this year.  

Meanwhile Skrillex has teased he's beginning "a new chapter" that will see the imminent release of an album. It has been nearly six years since the producer's last album, Recess.

Fri, 02/14/2020 - 18:58

Finally a peek at their long-awaited collab.

Rezz (real name Isabelle Rezazadeh) and Zeds Dead (real names Dylan "DC" Mamid and Zachary "Hooks" Rapp-Rovan) have finally given fans a taste of their highly anticipated collaboration via Twitter.

While the collaboration remains nameless, fans are finally able to hear what they've been cooking up. As suspected, the track is a slowed down, wobbly nightmare that set to take the bass music scene by storm. Currently, there's no release for the tune. Fans should prepare themselves, however, as both artists have posted teasers in the last 24 hours.

Rezazadeh sent shockwaves throughout the dance music community when she released her debut EP Insurrection on OWSLA in 2015. She quickly gained traction and garnered the attention of deadmau5, leading to her releasing an EP titled The Silence is Deafening via mau5trap 

Mamid and Rapp-Rovan has long been one of the most influential bass music groups in the business. Their works date back to 2006, with their hit remix of "Eyes On Fire" by Blue Foundation coming out in 2007. Since, they've hit every major milestone imaginable, including hosting their annual Deadrocks at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, launching their Deadbeats imprint, and playing at nearly every major festival.

Salvatore Ganacci Releases Strange, Endearing Music Video for "Boycycle"

Fri, 02/14/2020 - 18:52

You aren't prepared for the wildness of "Boycycle."

Salvatore Ganacci has released a music video for the track "Boycycle," as well as an EP of the same name, via OWSLA

Ganacci has teamed up with director Vedran Rupic once again, with whom he previously worked on the music video for his track "Horse." Sébastien Tellier also lends his voice on this tune, helping create a soothing atmosphere. "Boycycle" tells the story of a creature that is half-man, half-motorcycle and learning to adapt to a world where he simply doesn't fit in. He then takes off on an adventure to find a mermaid, as it's the only thing he's seen that somewhat resembles him. This strange yet compelling love story is truly captivating due to its highly unique premise.

Ganacci's Boycycle EP came out today as well, containing the aforementioned title track as well as "Heartbass" with Tommy Cash and "Interest In Sport." While the EP is quite a bit different than his recent releases, fans of Ganacci will definitely gravitate towards the three-track EP.

Pendulum Debuts New Music for the First Time in 10 Years

Fri, 02/14/2020 - 18:47

Pendulum is officially back!

Pendulum (comprised of original members Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding) have debuted their first new tune in a decade.

While performing in Perth, Australia on Thursday, Pendulum played out "Nothing For Free." The group originally got together in Perth, making this the perfect setting to debut new music. Last year, Pendulum announced their reunion as well as a new album and new production for their performances. Last month, Swire took to Instagram to tease a 30-second demo of a track, giving fans more hope than ever that their return is coming soon. 

Pendulum shook the world when they released their album Immersion in 2010. Their hits "Witchcraft," "Watercolour," and "The Island Part 1 (Dawn)" have become legendary in the dance music world as they continue to be rinsed in sets to this day. In 2018, the group released a remix album titled The Reworks, which featured remixes from legendary artists like Skrillex, Knife Party, Moby, and more.
