GDE’s EDC Las Vegas 2019 DJ Recommendations, Part 2 [Big Firsts on the Speedway]

Fri, 05/17/2019 - 13:43

As Insomniac’s biggest celebration of Dance Music approaches, the biggest thing on your mind has to be how in the world you’re going to catch all of the acts on your schedule. With the seemingly infinite choices out there and the conflicts that are bound to arise, we’ve compiled some categories in three distinct categories: Acts that gripped our attention from the lineup reveal mix, acts that are going to have big firsts, and EDC veterans who we believe beyond a 90 percentile will be an incredible time.  

One way you can make your final decision amongst a two or three way conflict on the speedway is finding out what acts will entail a “first” at the festival. EDC wouldn’t be the epic festival it is without their team finding something new and exciting to debut at every stage, and this article highlights those firsts here.

Neon Garden: The debut of Declan James’ Techno Alias.


Technoheads May have been thrown off and potentially hurled into a fit of righteous fury when the Neon Garden announcement mix suddenly dropped some progressive trance chords amongst all of the minimal beats. The track, Orion, belonged to Declan James. Typically this producer is known for releases on labels like Enhanced, but this Sunday at 7 sharp he’s going to be dropping his first ever techno festival set as VOIDWARE. His only calling card to this style lives on SoundCloud, and it’s a doozy of a mix. We’d highly recommend starting your last day at the speedway off right.

Cosmic Meadow: The first Deadmau5 EDC set in almost a decade.

Deadmau5 and Pasquale Rotella had an icky back and forth on twitter not too long ago, and for a lot of people that signified thew end of Deadmau5 ever coming to the speedway. He even said “Fuck EDC” in a seprate tweet. Fast forward to the lineup announcement, with the first song on Cosmic Meadow’s mix being Strobe from the man himself. We’re not sure how buried the hatchet is…but regardless, people have a chance to see Deadmau5 rip it up at the coveted primetime spot from the green grass or from a owl’s eye view up on the bleachers. 

StereoBLOOM: The first big EDC set from Holy Goof.


Bass house producer Holy Goof came to the U.S for the first time last year as part of Jauz’s Bite This tour. His releases on Jauz’s label of the same name have also served to satisfy, including his latest collaboration with Skepsis, The Force. To top all that off, he made a new compilation Globes that shows off every layer of his style. The best place to see him give his all will be this year’s StereoBLOOM stage.

KineticFIELD: The first Excision set on the biggest stage. 

The KineticFIELD announcement mix was a lot more about listening for certain songs to confirm the big names playing this year. Even so, we can only imagine the shock of bassheads around the world when the sample from Armin Van Buuren’s “Blah Blah Blah” was suddenly followed by the destructive drop of Excision’s “The Paradox.” Excision has travelled stages potentially more than any artist at the show, from the BassPOD to two years at CircuitGROUNDS to an epic slot at the EDC’s biggest attraction. We’re excited to see how he handles this new home of his. 

QuantumVALLEY: The first set from Ferry Corsten. 


Ferry Corsten brought back his Gouryella alias to tour festivals and provided one of the most introspective experiences we’ve seen at a festival in a long time. This year sees a different old school alias of ferry’s take shape: System F. A typical set from the trance legend under his own alias is all about playing a set in which multiple tracks create one big message and vibe, but his mixes for his specific projects are all about telling diffrent stories with each track. We’re excited to see the epic show that rocked Dreamstate last year up close. 

CircuitGROUNDS: The first time i_O sentences a crowd to death by Techno.

Mau5trap’s i_o is both talented and clever. His single “Not Techno” not only tickled our funny bones, but demonstrated just how versatile an artist he is. He followed up the trend this year with his release “Death By Techno,” a double sided masterclass in banging drums and dark melodies. He’s doing a special back to back with labelmate and friend No Mana at an art car, but the big event will be his opening set at the Circuit Grounds. His vibe is a great way to start your whole weekend.

WasteLAND: Ben Nicky’s first time playing his Xtreme alias to a hardstyle crowd. 

Ben Nicky is known in the trance universe as an artist who goes no-holds barred when it comes to flooring his audience. His label even signifies this with the title “Headfuck.” On Friday, we’re about to see him turn up the BPM even higher for the premiere of his Xtreme alias to the WasteLAND crowd. No matter what kind of style you fancy, you can rest assured that Nicky’s track selection will scale the entire spectrum of Dance Music influences. 

BassPOD: Rusko and Skream’s first Old Skool Dubstep outing

Both parties who will be lighting up the speedway tonight have a history of throwing crowds back. Skream and Benga carried the BassPOD at EDC 2011 with a plethora of tracks that reflected dubstep’s old sound. Rusko also played an insane throwback DnB set at Smirnoff house a couple years back. Now, Skream and Rusko find themselves at EDC 2019, with the sole mission of bringing those wobbles they love more than anything to this year’s crowd. Fans in attendance could hear a heaping helping of pre-Woo Boost material and should especially look out for some Magnetic Man tracks.

Watch Skrillex’s Entire EDC Japan 2019 Set Featuring New and Unreleased Music

Wed, 05/15/2019 - 17:29

For anyone who can’t be at every festival in the world, the internet and phones come to the rescue. There’s always the hope (and many times, it becomes a reality) that some unsung hero records the best sets and uploads it somewhere so that we can feel like we were there, even if we weren’t.

We got lucky for EDC Japan. One festival goers and fan recorded Skrillex’s entire 75-minute set and put it on YouTube.

It has been quite the year for Skrillex fans, and it’s only May. Between Dog Blog EP coming out and other new music, we have been happy clams when it comes to his music.

Skillrex’s EDC Japan art included JOYRYDE, Dog Blood, a few Skrillex IDs, and even an unidentified track. View the tracklist made by 1001tracklists, and enjoy his set below.

Here’s A List Of DJs Playing EDC Week Parties That Won’t Be At EDC Las Vegas

Tue, 05/14/2019 - 18:59

There are a slew of DJs all around EDC week, but if you’re making your decision, you may want to err towards acts that won’t be at the speedway this year. We scoured the site and picked out acts that will be absent but playing at times you can swing by and catch them around the festival…or catch if you decided not to make the trek this year. For example, Porter Robinson will be playing a DJ set at Omnia, which entails a boatload of exciting mixes of his own material as well as high energy tracks from a long list of subgenres that work really well together, like when he dropped Nero’s reopened mix of Innocence last year. Adam Beyer and Cierez D will also be playing an exclusive back to back as a little festival pre-party, the first of its kind at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. If you’re into both EDM and Hip-Hop, then you have the opportunity to get a bit ratchet with Drake, G-Eazy, and 2 Chainz.  Either of these would make for an exciting and unique warm up to the festival, not to mention a good way to train your body to last until 5:30 AM.

Check out these and all the other DJs and Hip-Hop artists below.

The British alternative rock band will headline the new Pasadena Daydream Festival on Saturday, Aug. 31.

The new event, which is curated by The Cure, including frontman Robert Smith, will also include Pixies, Deftones, Mogwai, Throwing Muses, The Joy Formidable, Chelsea Wolfe, The Twilight Sad, Emma Ruth Rundle and Kælan Mikla.

It’s produced by concert promoter Goldenvoice, the company behind Arroyo Seco Weekend, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio and the recent Just Like Heaven festival in Long Beach, which, while named after the Cure’s hit, didn’t feature the band.

Tickets for Pasadena Daydream go sale at noon Friday, May 17. Passes are $150 for general admission, $300 for VIP, before fees. All of the ticket prices include a $1 donation to that will go towards music and arts education organizations and local charities, including Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, Little Kids Rock, Free Arts for Abused Children, Inner-City Arts and The Painted Turtle.

Kaskade Wows The EDM World with 18-track “Redux 003” Release

Tue, 05/14/2019 - 15:31

Kaskade’s Redux journey had humble beginnings as a series of shows with original mixes of his old tracks at select clubs. There was a bit of a rocky start, with those used to his main stage sound voicing their outrage on social media. It gained traction fast, though, and led to “Redux” remixes of his newer tracks and new original tracks with this concept in mind.

The third chapter in his musical release journey is the size of a full blown album. Redux 003 features his most recent hits “Fun” and “Tight.” Beyond that, the other 16 tracks include several collaborations with artists in and out of his label Arkade like Mr. Tape, Lökii, Sego, Late Night Alumni, Felix Cartal and Gorgon City. With a range of tempos, synths and drum sounds along with the tracklist, the album has a common thread of sexy vocals and intimate energy only Raddon can bring to the table.

Check out the whole album on your streaming platform of choice.

GDE’s EDC Las Vegas 2019 DJ Recommendations, Part 1 [Lineup Mix Standouts]

Mon, 05/13/2019 - 20:07

As Insomniac’s landmark celebration of Dance Music approaches, the chief priority on your mind has to be how in the world you’re going to catch all of the acts on your perspective schedule. With the seemingly infinite choices out there and the conflicts that are bound to arise, we’ve compiled some recommendations in three distinct categories: acts that gripped our attention from the lineup reveal mix, big firsts on the speedway, and EDC veterans who we believe have more than a 90% chance of playing a memorable set.

The Insomniac crew pioneered a smart and fun way to reveal their lineup for EDC Las Vegas: play mixes for each stage with song samples from the DJs who will be playing. One way to approach the mix is to look for artists who’s song you know…but what about those moments you get swept away by a track that may be new to you? We decided to share an artist from each stage who’s quick music clip grabbed our attention, whether it’s an artist who’s new to the electric sky or an established act who’s track had us pause, rewind and fire up Shazam to dig through their extensive discography.

StereoBLOOM: Kai Wachi – Sunday, 12:30 – 1:30AM

The Stereo Bloom stage is poised to predominantly feature some of the sexiest house sounds there are, but there are also going to be some entries from Insomniac’s roster of artists whose sound is a little different. Our attention was yanked pretty hard by “Bodied,” a heavy dubstep cut by Kai Wachi. The Boise based producer is a veteran of Black Tiger Sex Machine’s 2017 tour as a member of Kannibalen Records alongside the aforementioned group, Apashe, and Snails. Amongst the several emerging artists at this stage, Kai Wachi is an artist who we think is going to really shake things up.

 

CircuitGROUNDS: Whipped Cream – Saturday, 4:30 – 5:30 

We can’t resist Canada based producer Whipped Cream’s style. We also can’t mistake it, which is why even though we hadn’t heard her latest single on Mad Decent “Time” in a minute, it stood out of the Circuit Grounds announcement mix exponentially. A proud member of Skrillex’s NEST HQ, she has released banger after banger since the label told their fans to watch her in 2017. Her song selection and mixing skills are good enough to keep a crowd at a music festival from 3AM on, as she did in her own backyard at Shambhala Music Festival. 

Better still, she hit up Twitter to announce her plans to play a boatload of brand new material at her set. A little more than a week ago, she even said she finished what could be her “best song to date.”  Considering the progress she’s made, it would be a privilege to have a front row spot for all of her projects that the world has yet to hear. 

QuantamVALLEY: Gentech – Friday, 3:30-5:30AM

Mark Sherry and Scot Project’s collaborative Trance effort Gentech made waves by creating the official anthem of Dreamstate SoCal “Feel My Love” this year, so we made it a point to listen closely during the QuantumVALLEY announcement for it. Lo and behold, the unmistakable melody made its way into the 5-minute mix and spiked our anticipation for going into(what we assume will be) the new megastructure design. Both acts in question are legends in their own right, with Sherry injecting a slew of records into the Tech Trance ecosystem via his own Outburst Records and Scot Project rocking German clubs as a resident DJ since the ’90s. We can’t wait to see what unfolds when they both put their heads together for the first sunrise of the weekend.

BassPOD: Badklaat – Friday, 

Never Say Die always gives you go to artists for complete and utter destruction on the dancefloor. Known by his friends as Adam James, Badklaat has been pushing out heavy beats out of his lab in the UK for nearly a decade. The fruits of his labor are collaborations with and remixes of artists like Megalodon, Trampa, TrollFace and Excision. Amongst the several dirty basslines, we encountered in the BassPod reveal mix, the grittiness of “Campers” in particular struck us the hardest. Better still, his most recent collaboration with Kompany on NSD Black Label echoes that same texture, but with a dramatic musical quality that we know is going to floor us on the speedway. 

KineticFIELD: Loud Luxury – Saturday, 7-8PM 

Loud Luxury’s single “Love No More” got the remix treatment from Fedde Le Grand, which should give you a clue into how much recognition they’ve inspired. The duo incorporates is a nice blend of chilled out melodies and main stage energy in their productions. If you have the courage to take on a Craig David classic, you’re ready to play one of the biggest festival stages on the globe. Don’t let traffic stop you from catching these guys fill up the Kinetic Field like nobody’s business. 

WasteLAND: Atomszfears – Sunday, 12:30 – 1:30

Atmozfears is no stranger to the Wasteland, but his sets always go off at EDC. This is why his 2015 anthem “Release” grabbed our attention. Our heads immediately fast forwarded three years and change to today, where his newest single with Sound Rush, “Together as One” is rocking the airwaves while only a ripe 9 days old. The producer has a slew of new melodic Hardstyle tracks under his belt including his Lose it All EP on Monstercat. His whole catalog of potential weapons for this year’s dancefloor includes collaborations with  Hardwell, Adrenalize and Lady Faith. He’s more than equipped to take the primetime slot on Day II.

NeonGARDEN: Layton Giordani – Sunday, 8-10 PM

Releasing a 12 track album on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode is a hell of a debut. Layton Giordani not only impressed us with that featuring but with subsequent collaborations with the label boss himself and Green Velvet. We were especially enamored by the track that got our attention during the loaded Neon Garden mix: his new Unspoken EP. He’s poised to make some magic happen with Bart Skills on the last day of Neon Garden this year, so we recommend you get yourself psyched early to make it to the venue for round III.

Her song selection and mixing skills are good enough to keep a crowd at a music festival from 3AM on, as she did in her own backyard at Shambhalla Music Festival. 

Better still, she hit up Twitter to announce her plans to play a boatload of brand new material at her set. A little more than a week ago, she even said she finished what could be her “best song to date.”  Considering the progress she’s made, it would be a privilege to have a front row spot for all of her projects that the world has yet to hear. 

QuantamVALLEY: Gentech – Friday, 3:30-5:30AM

Mark Sherry and Scot Project’s collaborative Trance effort Gentech made waves by creating the official anthem of Dreamstate SoCal “Feel My Love” this year, so we made it a point to listen closely during the QuantumVALLEY announcement for it. Lo and behold, the unmistakable melody made its way into the 5 minute mix and spiked our anticipation for going into(what we assume will be) the new megastructure design. Both acts in question are legends in their own right, with Sherry injecting a slew of records into the Tech Trance ecosystem via his own Outburst Records and Scot Project rocking German clubs as a resident DJ since the 90’s. We can’t wait to see what unfolds when they both put their heads together for the first sunrise of the weekend.

BassPOD: Badklaat – Friday, 

Never Say Die always gives you go to artists for complete and utter destruction on the dancefloor. Known by his friends as Adam James, Badklaat has been pushing out heavy beats out of his lab in the UK for nearly a decade. The fruits of his labor are collaborations with and remixes of artists like Megalodon, Trampa, TrollFace and Excision. Amongst the several dirty basslines we encountered in the BassPod reveal mix, the grittiness of “Campers” in particular struck us the hardest. Better still, his most recent collaboration with Kompany on NSD Black Label echoes that same texture, but with a dramatic musical quality that we know is going to floor us on the speedway. 

KineticFIELD: Loud Luxury – Saturday, 7-8PM 

Loud Luxury’s single “Love No More” got the remix treatment from Fedde Le Grand, which should give you a clue into how much recognition they’ve inspired. The duo incorporates is a nice blend of chilled out melodies and main stage energy in their productions. If you have the courage to take on a Craig David classic, you’re ready to play one of the biggest festival stages on the globe. Don’t let traffic stop you from catching these guys fill up the Kinetic Field like nobody’s business. 

WasteLAND: Atomszfears – Sunday, 12:30 – 1:30

Atmozfears is no stranger to the Wasteland, but his sets always go off at EDC. This is why his 2015 anthem “Release” grabbed our attention. Our heads immediately fast forwarded three years and change to today, where his newest single with Sound Rush, “Together as One” is rocking the airwaves while only a ripe 9 days old. The producer has a slew of new melodic Hardstyle tracks under his belt including his Lose it All EP on Monstercat. His whole catalog of potenrtial weapons for this year’s dancefloor includes collaborations with  Hardwell, Adrenalize and Lady Faith. He’s more than equipped to take the primetime slot on Day II.

NeonGARDEN: Layton Giordani – Sunday, 8-10 PM

Releasing a 12 track album on Adam Beyer’s Drumcode is a hell of a debut. Layton Giordani not only impressed us with that feat, but with subsequent collaborations with the label boss himself and Green Velvet. We were especially enamoured by the track that got our attention during the loaded Neon Garden mix: his new Unspoken EP. He’s poised to make some magic happen with Bart Skills on the last day of Neon Garden this year, so we recommend you get yourself psyched early to make it to the venue for round III.

HARD Summer Promises to Add Dust Mats Across the Dance Floor for 2019 Festival

Fri, 05/10/2019 - 15:26

Considering Insomniac’s recent quirky phone number plug for EDC Las Vegas 2019 that were posted as billboards near Coachella, we assumed that their recent HARD Summer video with a number would be even sillier. The video they tweeted alongside it was a ridiculous retro commercial ad advertising dust mats…which increased those expectations. However, the other end of the line was surprisingly straightforward.

BUY TICKETS HERE

A prerecorded message acknowledges the complaints about dust at the venue – a problem this particular festival seems to be plagued with every now and then no matter where they are for some unfortunate reason. The message goes on to explain the measures being taken to resolve these issues at this year’s HARD Summer by adding massive dust mats that’ll cover the dance floors, and even lets the caller leave a message with any additional feedback they may have before the festival kicks off on August 3. This opens up the rabbit hole for thousands of requests to book Daft Punk, but we’re sure the team at HARD HQ is prepared to filter through all that.

Call 888-HARD-2019 to leave your feedback now. Also, secure your 2-day passes NOW as tickets are now on Tier 6.

Hannah Wants Is Coming Back To The US For New Tour

Fri, 05/10/2019 - 02:25

For the first time in over a year, Hannah Wants returns to North America for a headlining tour— this time showcasing her revamped ‘What Hannah Wants’ concept. Beginning on June 14, she will embark on a nine-stop journey through Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco and more key markets across the nation.

Hannah will be releasing a freshly minted original—’Love Somebody’—on May 10 to help mark the occasion.  ‘Love Somebody’ captures the ultimate aesthetic of Etiquette, Hannah’s new label which was born as a way for her to bring the bass and house worlds together. The track fuses a heady low end with crisp percussion and soulful vocals, asserting her ability to balance her underground roots with pop sensibilities.

America will also get a healthy taste of her ‘What Hannah Wants’ tour concept, which debuted in 2015 with large scale production and branded shows at places like Lovebox, The Warehouse Project, and more. Hannah re-introduced the series in early 2019, taking it to smaller, rawer settings that fostered a deeper connection between her and her fans. ‘What Hannah Wants’ trekked through 15 of the UK and Ireland’s most notable small venues including Patterns, Cosmic Ballroom, and Wire in Leeds in its initial 2019 run.

Beyond establishing a deeper connection with fans, Hannah Wants also finds great importance of paying her success forward to up-and-coming DJs. A cornerstone aspect of the ‘What Hannah Wants’ tour is ongoing talent searches while on the road, where the icon carefully handpicks each of her opening acts. Hannah will help bring exposure to newer artists Stateside as she continues to seek out hidden talent during her cross-country journey.

Hannah Wants quickly made headway in dance music following her first Ibiza season in 2010. Just four years later, she’d been flagged as Mixmag’s ‘Breakthrough DJ of the Year’ for her inventive blending of classic house, bass, and garage. The reward for ‘Best DJ’ at the 2015 Bass Music Awards followed, as well as DJ Mag’s 2017 ‘Best Of British’ title of ‘Best DJ.’ Hannah persevered through 2018 to achieve some of her biggest successes to date, with a record-breaking crowd at EDC Las Vegas, a Coachella debut, appearances in Australia and New Zealand, a storied fifth year of residency at Amnesia Ibiza, and a headlining slot at BBC 1’s Dance Arena at Reading and Leeds.

It is as a heralded figure in global dance music that Hannah charts her continued rise as one of the industry’s most respected players.

 

 

Tour Dates:

June 14 – Brew City Boat Series – Wilwaukee, WI

June 14 – Site 1A – Wilwaukee, WI

Ultra Music Festival’s Next Massive Venue Has Been Leaked For 2020

Thu, 05/09/2019 - 16:03

Ultra Music Festival pulled a “You can’t fire me, I quit” move by voluntarily terminating its license with Miami one day before the city was scheduled to meet for a vote on the festival’s future. They announced the split in their response to the 20,000 surveys they received on the experience at Virginia Key beach park via social media, mentioning that they would be looking for a new location in South Florida.

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

Today, some choice info from Miami Herald reveals the new location may be…you guessed it, a Speedway. Specifically, the Homestead-Miami Speedway, which is only 30 miles south of the city. Homestead City manager Goerge Grestast told the publication that he “was made aware of conversations between Ultra and the Homestead-Miami Speedway.” We can’t wait to hear the official confirmation, especially because it means that Miami Music week…can technically still be in Miami. What are your thoughts on the move? Shoot us a tweet @GlobalDanceElec.

DJ Tennis & Acid Pauli Take Over LA’s Chinatown for Open-To-Close Event This Summer

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 19:10

Figureheads of left field house and electronica, DJ Tennis and Acid Pauli, will return to Los Angeles on June 22 for a day into night sermon at Chinatown’s historic Gin Ling Way. The block party will be hosted by leaders of the LA underground Future Primitive, who also celebrate their first birthday in June.

DJ Tennis is a name as ingrained into the modern foundation of house and techno as it is its future. Known as the head of the renowned Life and Death imprint and co-founder of Art Basel Miami’s iconic Rakastella event, Tennis has spent years refining both the musical direction and industry backbone of contemporary electronic music, emerging from Italy’s punk and rock scene with a singular spin on dance music. His performances offer a showcase of his diverse musical background, pushing the musical envelope in a seamless blending of avant-garde electro, soulful house grooves, and driving tech.

Acid Pauli sits firmly on the outer limits of the dancefloor, unafraid to push far beyond traditional club rhythms. The Berlinite is known for taking revelers on psychedelic journeys, carefully molded to their respective time and place. It’s this idiosyncratic musical vision, backed by years of synth mastery and film scoring, that have kept Acid Pauli in high demand at the world’s most forward-thinking gatherings like Day Zero, Mutek, and many more.

Getting its start in June 2018, Future Primitive has risen as a new LA institution for dance music’s cutting edge. This season alone, the brand is hosting the likes of Guy Gerber’s Rumors, Jamie Jones Paradise in the Park, and Innervisions’ first-ever LA showcase. They remain committed to providing unique experiences to guests, soundtracked by the world’s top underground electronic talents.

Ultra Music Festival is Leaving The City of Miami For “A New South Florida Location”

Wed, 05/08/2019 - 17:29

Ultra Music Festival will not return to the city of Miami next year.

The electronic music festival might move to Homestead, according to sources familiar with those discussions.

Ultra confirmed its departure in a letter delivered to the city Wednesday afternoon. Organizers are backing out of an agreement that allowed them to stage their most recent event on Virginia Key, a controversial move spurred by commissioners who kicked the festival out of Bayfront Park in September.

Ultra’s letter landed at City Hall with a big thud, catching administrators and politicians off guard a day before the commission was supposed to vote on whether the city would revoke a year-to-year licensing agreement with Ultra for Virginia Key. The vote was hotly anticipated after a rough debut on the island, where logistical problems plagued the event’s opening night and the volume of the music aggravated residents on mainland Miami.

Under the contract, either Ultra or the city could revoke the agreement within 60 days of the festival’s closing each year. On Wednesday, Ultra made the call: They’re out.

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

Their next stop might be Homestead. City Manager George Gretsas told the Herald he was made aware of conversations between Ultra and the Homestead-Miami Speedway.

“It is our expectation that at some point, they will formally submit a proposal,” Gretsas said.

All you have to do is swipe right on a holographic card with a logo of a festival coming up in two weeks time, and a badge of said festival will show up on the top corner of your profile. EDC Las Vegas is the first featured on the “Tinder Tour,” which also includes All Points East, Bonnaroo, Governor’s ball, and HARD Summer.

Festival Mode began officially rolling out on Tinder on May 1, for the participating festivals below. Users will have access to their event-specific badges approximately three weeks prior to the start of each event.

Adele Says New Album “Will Be a Drum and Bass Record to Spite You”

Tue, 05/07/2019 - 20:58

Is Adele thinking about making a Drum n Bass record? Chances aren’t too high, but she alluded to the possibility of one on social media, so producers in that realm can certainly try to temper that possibility. The main meat of the post was the progression she’s made as an artist with the releases of 19, 21, and 25. She details the journey to 31 in an Instagram post:

30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean into it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay.

Coming out on the other side of 30, Adele has advice for us:

Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually.

To end it, she mentioned she may just make a Drum n Bass record “just to spite us.” …honestly, one or two of those on her latest album wouldn’t be the worse thing in the world. High Contrast delivered a gorgeous rendition of Hometown Glory many moons ago, and he’d be one of many prime candidates for this. Any other potential suitors? Tweet us your thoughts @GlobalDanceElec.

This is 31…thank fucking god ???? 30 tried me so hard but I’m owning it and trying my hardest to lean in to it all. No matter how long we’re here for life is constant and complicated at times. I’ve changed drastically in the last couple years and I’m still changing and that’s okay. 31 is going to be a big ol’ year and I’m going to spend it all on myself. For the first time in a decade I’m ready to feel the world around me and look up for once. Be kind to yourself people we’re only human, go slow, put your phone down and laugh out loud at every opportunity. Learning to REALLY truly love yourself is it, and I’ve only just realized that that is more than enough. I’ll learn to love you lot eventually ???? Bunch of fucking savages, 30 will be a drum n bass record to spite you. Chin up eh ❤
