Mon, 03/04/2019 - 14:15

The Swedish superstar DJ/producer revealed a brand new mixtape is coming this weekend.

One of the biggest names in dance music, Alesso, announced a brand new mixtape is coming this Friday. At the time of writing, little is known about the mixtape other than its name, Progresso Volume 1.

After reading the name of the mixtape, one can reasonably assume the Swedish superstar will be delivering a proper dose of progressive house to fans with this upcoming release. 

Attentive followers on Twitter pointed out that the track used in the teaser video was played during his performance at EDC Mexico last weekend. It is not known if any other IDs will be featured on the mixtape.

Fans of Alesso will have plenty of opportunities to see him this festival season. He was announced as a headliner at Disneyland Paris' Electroland, The Indy 500's Snake Pit, Tomorrowland, and more.

Late last year, he collaborated with Twitch mainstay, Ninja for a track on his compilation album Ninjawerks Vol. 1. Named in honor of the worldwide sensation, Fortnite, "Tilted Towers" saw Alesso deliver another massive big room heater to the video game inspired compilation.

Progresso Volume 1 releases this Friday.

Listen to justlikeu's Electrifying, Emotional New Single "electricity"

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 13:17

Justlikeu channels his profound emotional depth in captivating sophomore release, "Electricity"

Following his debut single “nocturnal animals,” justlikeu has returned with an electrifying and deeply emotional sophomore release, “electricity.”

Inspired by the profound range of human emotion, justlikeu has taken it upon himself to capture and embody a distinct element of the human experience with each and every release. A captivating odyssey through downtempo bass, scintillating melodies, and hypnotic vocals, “electricity” paints a scene of euphoric energy, a surge of adrenaline and a tinge of bittersweet hope.

Explaining how his musical experiment came to be, justlikeu said,

"I realized we all go through ups and downs, feel the highest highs and the lowest lows, have weird thoughts of self-doubt and wake up after partying all night and feel sad. That's why this project is named 'justlikeu,' to try and remove the hands in the air DJ hype and embody the human experience.”

In a generation addicted to the blue-light glare of device screens, on-demand serotonin rushes, and the instant-gratification of social media fame, justlikeu is an artist with a singular mission: channel emotions through music in such a way as to make us realize that we have far more similarities than differences. Recognizing both the positive and negative elements of human nature, his musical embodiment of everything from power to joy and sadness are masterpieces in their ability to evoke a nostalgic and cathartic experience from even the most closed of hearts.

View the original article to see embedded media.

If exploring the full extent of the human experience through profound audio explorations appeals to you, justlikeu’s journey through expression and expectation is something you’d be remiss to miss out on!

TroyBoi Premieres a Bouncy New Collaboration with Skrillex

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 12:44

The Soundclash star announced a massive new collaboration with Skrillex.

Fans of the British trap producer, TroyBoi were treated to a sneak peek of his upcoming collaboration with Skrillex. A video of the then-unannounced track was uncovered this weekend on Reddit before TroyBoi took to Instagram to confirm the track himself. 

In typical TroyBoi (real name Troy Henry) fashion, the track starts out with his signature "T-R-O-Y-B-O-I" calling card before introducing Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore) to the mix.

Although we only have a short clip of the unnamed track, the bulk of the video highlights TroyBoi's bouncy trap sound with some of Skrillex's famous choppy vocal samples scattered throughout. 

TroyBoi released his V!BEZ Vol. 2 EP late last year. In an interview with the man himself he spoke on what separates his V!BEZ series from the rest of his releases: 

"It’s different because V!BEZ is my chance to just let my creativity run wild. I love to create a wide variety of music, so this is the perfect project to showcase that and introduce people to new ideas."

On the other side of the coin, fans of Skrillex have been delighted to see the return of the eight-time Grammy-winning producer. Alongside upcoming appearances at Ultra Korea and Miami (as Dog Blood) it was recently announced that he has an Ekali collaboration on the way.

The Prodigy's Keith Flint Dead at 49

Mon, 03/04/2019 - 11:31

Keith Flint, lead singer of the iconic electronica band The Prodigy was found dead in his home last night.

Keith Flint, lead singer of the iconic electronica band, The Prodigy was found dead in his home in Essex last night. 

Bandmate Liam Howlett told fans on Instagram that the 49-year-old frontman took his own life over the weekend. The message is also displayed on their website.

An Essex police spokesman briefed the media on their findings:

"We were called to concerns for the welfare of a man at just after 8.10am on Monday. We attended and, sadly, a 49-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His next of kin have been informed. The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner."

Flint's contributions to electronic music will never be forgotten. With him at the helm, The Prodigy would go on to become one of the biggest and most iconic electronic acts of all time. They are considered pioneers of the big beat genre, which dominated the 90's.  

Since their conception in 1990, the band has amassed many number one chart placements, platinum records, and awards. 

Last November, they released their album No Tourists, which debuted at number one in the UK.

Excision Details Changes for the Third Annual Lost Lands Festival

Sun, 03/03/2019 - 15:42

Excision announced dozens of improvements to Lost Lands 2019.

Excision, the man behind the world's biggest bass music festival, Lost Lands, recently detailed changes coming to this year's edition of the prehistoric themed party. 

Excision (real name Jeff Abel) posted the changes to the recently announced festival to his Excision's Headbangers group on Facebook. Included in these changes are improvements to the camping, water stations, and overall layout of the festival grounds. 

Lost Lands 2019 features several different types of camping including everything from quiet camping to luxury camping packages. Abel went on to explain that they've implemented fail-safe measures to their wells that will prevent the loss of water availability in case of overly wet conditions.

A fan favorite addition to the annual festival was the late night sound camps. For those unfamiliar with Lost Lands, the sound camps were essentially a festival inside of a festival. Multiple stages (including Excision's Executioner stage) were set up inside the campgrounds and after the main festival came to an end, the sound camp mini-festival would begin. 

This year, the sound camp stages will be scattered throughout the main festival grounds which will allow fans to access the food and drink vendors in the festival grounds.

While you're preparing for this year's festivities, check out our review of Lost Lands 2018. Excision's full letter to fans is available in on the official Lost Lands website.

Lost Lands 2019 will be held September 27-29th at Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio. Tickets to this year's festival are on sale now. You can purchase tickets here.

Martin Garrix's Side Project AREA21 Announces New Music This Week

Sun, 03/03/2019 - 14:22

New music from Martin Garrix and Maejor is on the way!

It's been almost a year since we've seen new music from Martin Garrix and Maejor's AREA21 project, but new music is on the way.

Titled "Help", we know nothing about the track other than the name, but we can expect production very different from Garrix's typical style. 

AREA21 came onto the scene in 2016 when Garrix debuted music from the side project during his set at Ultra Music Festival.

Their hip-hop infused EDM showcases the Dutch producer's ability to step out of the progressive house lane that drove him to become one of the biggest names in all of dance music.

There is no confirmed release date for "Help", but the artists have indicated the track will drop sometime next week on Garrix's label, STMPD RCRDS.

Since 2016, the duo has only released five singles, "Spaceships", "Girls", "We Did It", "Glad You Came", and "Happy".

Martin Garrix fans have had a lot to be excited about recently. This weekend, Ultra Music Festival Korea announced their phase 2 lineup including the man himself alongside Skrillex, Virtual Self, and more.

Sat, 03/02/2019 - 14:34

Very NSFW material from Bassnectar's Deja Voom.

Bassnectar’s destination festival Deja Voom just kicked off its debut year in Riviera Maya, Mexico, this weekend. The “first ever tropical family vacation”, is headlined by Bassnectar himself, and features performances by REZZ, The Glitch Mob, Mala & Coki (Digital Mystikz) and many more. 

Adult film star Adriana Chechik attended the festival, and tweeted the following earlier this week:

Many thought Chechik wasn’t being serious, yet the following video surfaced, showing a girl that could be the adult film star giving a blowjob in the middle of the crowd. While one couldn’t assert this is Chechik with certainty, she responded to a tweet and may have confirmed that she is the woman in the video. 

Deja Voom ends tonight with sets from Bassnectar, ill.Gates, Claude VonStroke and more.

Morgan Page Unites With Pex L for New Single "Gone My Way"

Sat, 03/02/2019 - 14:20

The producer is back on Armada Music for another strong release.

Morgan Page is back on Armin Van Buuren's Armada Music with "Gone My Way", featuring up-and-comer Pex L

The Grammy-nominated producer (real name Morgan Wolf Page) recently celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his release "The Longest Road" with a remix compilation, featuring artists such as deadmau5 and Vicetone. "Gone My Way" marks Page's first release in 2019, and is definitely setting him up for another bright year.  

Exploring a new direction, Page pays slight homage to classic progressive house and complextro on "Gone My Way", and offers a colorful, short-but-sweet experience that packs a lot of energy. 

The melodic single is introduced with catchy vocals and a feel-good atmosphere before stacked saws reinforce the energy of the buildup. The drop is packed with gritty basslines, a variety of synths and upbeat drums; a combination that creates a perfect dancefloor anthem. 

"Really proud of this single” Page disclosed. “It merges several different sounds and influences together into one cohesive song. Progressive house, electro-house, elements of complextro, and also future house are merged into one with some ethereal female vocals on top. Pex L and I swapped stems and the song just came together naturally. It's been a really fun part of my live sets recently, and I can't wait for it to be released and for people to hear it!"

Morgan Page has been releasing music for almost two decades. The American producer received a Grammy nomination in 2011 for best remix and released his third studio album In The Air in 2012.

Marshmello Teases New Track With CHVRCHES "Here With Me"

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 17:41

Another massive collaboration from  Marshmello!

As we come into the third month of 2019, Marshmello is back at it again with another new track. The masked DJ took to Twitter to post a mysterious tweet signifying new music would be arriving March 8th. Shortly thereafter, an announcement came that the new music would be a collaboration with Scottish trio, CHVRCHES entitled "Here With Me".

The superstar producer has been shelling out tracks left and right, crossing over all genres. He began 2019 with the hip-hop single "Project Dreams" featuring Roddy Ricch, then dropped the Bollywood inspired bop "Biba" featuring Pritam, and most recently threw down some dubstep with "Sell Out", a collaboration with SVDDEN DEATH. There's no telling what this man can't do. 

The Scottish trio is known for their synth-pop stylings so it will be interesting if he follows that formula or completely flips it on its head. According to his Twitter, this song is one of his favorites he's done, so fans should be excited.

Gesaffelstein and Pharrell Release New Track "Blast Off"

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 17:26

The third single from Gesaffelstein's Forthcoming LP 'Hyperion'

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of Gesaffelstein's new LP Hyperion, set to debut March 8th on Columbia Records. In the meantime, the French producer/DJ(real name Mike Lévy) has come to appease the masses with a third taste off the album, entitled "Blast Off" featuring the iconic Pharrell Williams.  This release is following "Reset" and "Lost In Fire" featuring The Weeknd

It's a funky display of new age disco with 80's inspired synthesizers and Williams' electrifying vocals. It's easy to draw some comparison to fellow French legends Daft Punk and Justice with this track. Lévy uses his legendary mid-tempo bass that makes it near impossible not to groove to.

Two minutes in and the verse Williams' delivers feels like an ode to reggae vocal styles. It's a step back into the darkness from the more mainstream sound he released with "Lost In Fire". Seeing the stylistic differences between "Reset", "Lost In Fire", and "Blast Off", there's no telling what the rest of the 10-track album holds for us. 

Lévy signed to Tiga's Turbo Recordings label in 2010, issuing Variations that year, followed by Conspiracy Pt.1 and in 2011. His breakout year was 2013 when he produced two tracks on Yeezus, the sixth studio album from Kanye West, including the lead single "Black Skinhead" and "Send It Up." Now signed to Columbia Records, Hyperion will follow up his debut album, Aleph, released in 2013 on OWSLA

Fans of Gesaffelstein will be able to catch him at this year’s Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California in April, followed by Governors Ball in May.

'80s Music Meets Melodic House on Beats 1 One Mix with Luttrell [INTERVIEW]

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 15:58

One of Anjunadeep's finest brings his emotive brand of house & techno to Beats 1 One Mix.

This week, Beats 1’s weekly radio show One Mix hosts Luttrell for an 80’s inspired mix. Expect music from Yello, Talking Heads, and Dusky, plus unreleased Luttrell productions, as the Anjunadeep mainstay blends his atmospheric style of house and techno with 80’s tunes.

Tune in here, exclusively on Apple Music.
Air Date: Friday 1st March, 2019 - 21:00 LA / 00:00 NY / 05:00 UK

Luttrell’s journey with music began at the age of 14. Inspired by The Smashing Pumpkins, Iron & Wine, Neil Young, and Sufjan Stevens, his first creations were acoustic and melodic. The transition from 80’s synth pop to house & techno came in 2007 when Luttrell studied abroad in Berlin. The fantastic exposure to electronic music was a major turning point, as he mentioned in a past interview, “when I realized I could make that kind of music on my computer, I was hooked!”

Electronic music fans may recognize Luttrell from his many years as part of The M Machine, a duo formed by Luttrell and Ben Swardlick in their college days at the University of Santa Barbara. The M Machine signed with Skrillex’s then-new label OWSLA in 2011, kicking off the first of many music successes. 

A slew of EPs and singles on OWSLA, festival appearances at Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival, and Tomorrowland, official remixes of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out Of Heaven,” Passion Pit’s “Take a Walk,” and Empire of the Sun’s “DNA,” The M Machine had a good run before calling it quits on mutual terms a just a few years ago.

Luttrell was quick to form a budding relationship with Above & Beyond’s Anjunadeep label, releasing 3 EPs and his debut album with them over the past 3 years. Ironic, considering at first Luttrell wasn’t sure his sound would fit with the label. It was actually on the advice of his good friend, fellow musician and electronic music producer Mat Zo, that he reached out to Anjunadeep back in 2016!

Melodic, deep, dark and moody, Luttrell’s sound captures various shades of house & techno. His debut EP, Need You, attests to this. His debut album, Into Clouds, sends it home.

The LP, released less than a month ago, ”inspired by the empowerment and vulnerability experienced in starting anew”, embodies Luttrell’s transition from creating music as a duo for ten years to doing it solo. Luttrell further describes it as, “doing your best to recognise and appreciate the beauty - both in the good times and the bad. I think each song has a message, a vibe or a feeling that each and every one of us can relate to on some level. Some moments are flying high above it all, some are dreamy or whimsical, and some moments are more pensive, delicate or even vulnerable. I want listeners to make this album their own and attribute their personal experiences and feelings to the music.”

The 10-track album is well worth a listen, and if you’d like to know more about Luttrell, read on for our interview with him. Luttrell revealed his go-to place for new music, reminisced about his shows in India, recounted Skrillex eating agolf ball sized wasabi backstage, and more.

EDM.com: First show experience?

The artist who inspired you to become a musician?

Probably The Smashing Pumpkins. Their music really inspired my interest in learning how to create music.

“Time” by Pachanga Boys.

Dream B2B partner?

Lauer.

Favorite BPM?

Piece of gear you always need on the road?

Hand sanitizer.

All-time favorite festival?

Burning Man.

How often do you get out and have fun, and where do you go?

I’m usually busy working on new music when I’m home, but sometimes I’ll go out for a couple pints and some pinball with my friends in SF.

City with the most underrated dance scene?

Boston is always surprisingly awesome. They show up to party.

Industry prediction for the next year?

More melodic techno and house.

Best piece of advice for new producers?

Keep going. It takes time.

Dead or alive, who would be your dream collaborator?

David Bowie.

What is one of the unique experiences you’ve had backstage?

One time I watched Skrillex eat a golf ball sized wasabi and he didn’t even flinch.

A unique travel experience you’ve had?

I once played 4 shows in 4 days across India. That was a trip!

What's your favorite throwback track?

“In My Arms” by Mylo.

What's one track that fans always lose their mind to?

My remix of Moby’s “This Wild Darkness”

What was the first album you ever bought?

Dookie by Green Day.

Name one remix that you think is better than the original?

Not that I’d play it in my Luttrell sets, but Skrillex’s remix of “Cinema” is pretty great.

What song would you want (god forbid) played at your funeral?

“Life On Mars” by David Bowie.

What's the perfect sunset track?

“Deep In My Soul” by 16BL.

What song do you listen to cheer yourself up?

“This Must Be The Place” by Talking Heads.

Dabin Reveals Second Single "Rings & Roses" Ahead of New Album

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 15:57

Dabin's sophomore album is out in March.

Toronto-based producer Dabin is back with the second single from his forthcoming sophomore album. Teaming up with Conor Byrne, "Rings & Roses" is a nostalgic, guitar-driven single that invokes excitement ahead of his full album, Wild Youth. 

Over the last couple years, Dabin's experienced a dramatic rise within the melodic bass genre. The guitarist and producer has certainly made a name for himself in the studio and on the road riffing for live audiences on Illenium's Awake 2.0 Tour. With anticipation for his album Wild Youth building, Dabin's newly announced headline tour is already selling out in major markets.

In contrast to his first single for Wild Youth, "Alive," "Rings & Roses" sees Dabin's guitar playing as track's central focus. According to Dabin, the composition came to mind very easily once he received vocals from Dublin songwriter Conor Byrne. He explained:

"Rings and Roses is definitely one of my favorites on the album. After I heard the vocal hook Conor Byrne sent me, I wrote an entire song around it in a few days. I love how a good vocal part can just ignite the creative flame and I think the best songs are the ones that just come together organically."

Stream Dabin's "Rings & Roses" here and stay tuned for his full album release out March 22nd.

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 15:55

Rad Cat has been producing music for top hip-hop talent. Now he's shaping his own path.

While he may be best known for his work behind the scenes of major artists, rising producer Rad Cat is committed to furthering his solo career in 2019. His new release, "Show Off" featuring Dylan Matthew, marks a decisive step forward for the San Diego native on his move into the forefront.

Sonically, "Show Off" features a similar crossover of future pop and hip hop influences that defined Rad Cat's previous productions such as "down 4 u." A high-energy future synth lead and top line from Dylan Matthew are the lifeblood of this catchy original. 

Check out Rad Cat's new original with Dylan Matthew, "Show Off", out now via Blackbear's label, Beartrap.

If you're going to this year's Winter Music Conference/Miami Music Week, you've no doubt already seen an overwhelming amount of one-of-a-kind events, killer pool parties, exclusive Yacht expeditions, and some truly spectacular lineups.

Today continues the trend of nonstop exciting party announcements, this time with Scrxtch N Sniff & TechYes' "CONFESSION" Label Closing Party at 3100 Wynwood in Miami on the night of March 31st.

This is by no means confirmed, but from our initial research it appears that this party is a key stop of the Tchami & Malaa 2019 Tour (the date is conveniently empty on their tour calendar, and they'll already be in Miami) and is also the official Miami Music Week closing party for Tchami's label venture, Confession.

The full line-up announcement will be released shortly, and you can grab early-bird tickets now!

Sikdope Releases Fiery and Frenetic New Single "Rave" via Musical Freedom

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 15:29

Calling All Ravers: Take a trip down memory lane with Sikdope's massive new release on Tiësto's Musical Freedom record label

Returning to Tiësto’s iconic Musical Freedom imprint, veteran Polish producer Sikdope is set to release a throwback, rave-style hard dance smash that is perfectly engineered to set crowds ablaze.

Drawing on elements from the early history of raving, "Rave" boasts fiery synth breakdowns underpinned by a frenetic, fast-paced beat. Blending massive, fresh-sounding bass lines with nostalgic synth work and aggressive percussion, the song is sure to inspire a raucous scene across club floors and festival arenas alike. 

View the original article to see embedded media.

When asked about the inspiration behind "Rave," Sikdope explained:

"I'm super into rave sounds and culture from the '90s lately and that was the main inspiration for the song. I've been testing it out for the past weeks at festivals worldwide and the response from the crowd has been astonishing! The whole structure of “Rave” is a mixture of “old meets new” with fresh bass lines and old school synths and vocals.”

A longtime producer known for his eclectic style, his wide range of musical expertise',  and of course his flawless performances around the world, Sikdope is truly making his mark on the scene with a style that bridges the gap between the realms of vicious bass house, progressive, cuts and futuristic trap sensibilities. 

Grab your very own copy of "Rave" today.

You can also catch Sikdope during his exclusive EDM.com Instagram Takeover on March 10th, 2019 - live from San Padre, Texas at Steve Aoki's SPRING BREAK 2019 Event.

Pasquale Rotella and Bill Nye "the Science Guy" Announce kineticENERGY Theme for EDC Las Vegas 2019

Fri, 03/01/2019 - 15:18

Welcome to kineticENERGY!

Insomniac Founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella has collaborated with pop culture icon, educator and TV personality Bill Nye to announce the theme of Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas (EDC Las Vegas) 2019. What better way to announce this year's theme of kineticENERGY then to enlist the help of the physics man himself. The 23rd rendition of the event will return to the legendary Las Vegas Motor Speedway May 17th-19th.

Every year, EDC Las Vegas embodies a central theme that manifests itself at kineticFIELD and spreads throughout the festival. In recent years, this stage has been fashioned into a kineticCATHEDRAL for sonic worship (2014); a Crystal Village inhabited by owl guardians (2015); a kineticTEMPLE of sacred sounds (2016); the open arms of Mother Earth, kineticGAIA (2017); and the epicenter of universal love, kineticLOVE (2018). 

Always in motion yet true to its eternal nature, kineticFIELD now reveals its most natural state. This year’s kineticENERGY theme will bring an electrifying experience to the Nevada desert that unites more than 400,000 Headliners through a beautiful vibration of movement and energy during the most anticipated event of the year. 

“Think of the potential,” said Bill Nye. “Hundreds of thousands of people moving their bodies, freeing their minds, and dancing to music under the glow of spectacular light. We'll convert all this potential to a carnival of kinetic energy!”

In addition to his appearance in the video, Bill Nye will officially kick off the 2019 edition of EDC Las Vegas as host of the Opening Ceremony on Friday, May 17, amplifying his message of kinetic energy and positive vibes to thousands of Headliners at the cosmicMEADOW stage. 

Of the announcement, Rotella has said:

“It was an honor having Bill at Insomniac HQ yesterday on National Science Day to film our EDC theme reveal. He’s beloved by so many in this community, and with this year’s Kinetic Energy theme, it felt like the perfect collaboration. I’ve always believed this music and these events are good for the mind, body and spirit. Bill brought his own unique energy to this special reveal to help spread that message. I can’t wait for him to kick off our Opening Ceremony at EDC Las Vegas.” 

A limited number of EDC LV 2019 tickets are on sale online, here. Camping packages are available for purchase on the EDC Las Vegas Camping website, here
