We’ve had some breathtaking backdrops to watch DJ sets since the pandemic started. We have seen the desert, rooftops, parks, and more. While we all miss live shows, this creative outlet has been a pretty cool one to witness. This weekend is no exception, thanks to another Insomniac production.
Seven Lions is teaming up with Gem & Tauri to give us a two-hour set this weekend on August 15th. The location? None other than The Gorge. The Gorge is one of the most well-known and beautiful venues in the country, located up in Washington State. It’s home to not only festivals that many of us have been to, but also to shows.
It sucks that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken from us the ability to go to theses things in person, but we sure cannot wait to be transported virtually back there for this Seven Lions and Gem & Tauri tag team. The set will be airing this Saturday, August 15th, at 6pm PST. You can access it by going to Insomniac’s live stream website, tv.insomniac.com.
The announcement tweet said to, “Get ready to cry, dance, and headbang!” We are definitely ready.

Grammy-nominated duo Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight of ODESZA, and ARIA-platinum selling Australian producer Tom Stell of Golden Features, today release their highly anticipated self-titled debut album from their new joint project, BRONSON. Out on Foreign Family Collective and Ninja Tune, BRONSON is a striking collection of ten songs that vacillate between intense, emotive instrumental-heavy tracks and revelatory, melodic vocal-driven compositions. The trio embrace an alternate identity on the record, achieving a newfound limitlessness and ability to explore different soundscapes, free from any expectations attached to their respective projects. BRONSON welcomes guest features from notable vocalists including Gallant, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and lau.ra (of Ultraísta), as well as a surprise appearance from Harrison and Tom themselves providing the vocals for “CALL OUT.”

Everyone needs their daily dose of chill, especially when it comes from Minneapolis-based chillhop duo, WaxFeet. Their latest cut ‘Holding On’ brings a vibrant wavy tune to the listening world. It’s exactly what we need during these uncertain times and hey it’s Friday, so crack beer while this song plays during sunset. ‘Holding On’ is a carefully crafted audio experience everyone needs in their lives today.
“We often ask ourselves: to chill, or not to chill? There is enough commotion in life without jacking up brain waves further. We are driven to write music that heals. Without words.” – WaxFeet
WaxFeet has been churning out tunes for as long as they can remember and are gearing up for an exciting year with an LP due out in 2021. They create splendid audiovisual experiences that excite, calm and hopefully heal the mind. You’ll find influences of J Dilla and Nujabes, with their own signature sounds that excite the world of lofi hiphop.

The Weeknd announced a very special new collaboration to debut soon. In a tweet, he alluded to a partnership between “XO” (the artist’s own label) and “999”(a number famously associated with the late rapper Juice WRLD). The new song fulfills a wish from the late rapper, evidence by a tweet he posted last year:
Me and The Weeknd would make a diamond record…
— . (@JuiceWorlddd) September 11, 2019
XO + 999 Thursday Night
— The Weeknd (@theweeknd) August 4, 2020
The two artists have released major albums this 2020. After Hours and Juice’s first posthumous record Legends Never Die both opened at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with Legends Never Die briefly dethroning After Hours to hold the record for biggest debut of the year. You can expect the collab to drop later tonight!Share0Share0Share0Share0

Erick Morillo, the international superstar DJ, music producer, and record label owner, has been arrested and charged with sexual battery.
The Colombian-American DJ has a home in Miami Beach where the police said the incident occurred. Back in December, Morillo and his accuser were both DJing at a private party on Star Island. Upon finishing, they went back to his home, along with another woman, to have some after-work drinks.
According to the arrest report, the victim told detectives that Morillo “made several advances towards her, some sexual in nature, but she refused all of his attempts.” The accuser, who was intoxicated, decided to find a room to sleep in by herself.
She next reported “waking up nude on the bed, with Mr. Morillo standing on the side of the bed also nude.”
While Morillo originally denied the accusations, the accuser got a rape kit done. The results, which came back on Wednesday, tested positive for his DNA. Morillo then turned himself in with his attorney, according to the police report.
News of sexual assault and worse has been surfacing a lot lately within the EDM community, a trend that is disconcerting to a community that is all about peace, love, unity, and respect. Stay safe out there, GDE family.SOURCE Share0Share0Share0Share0

DJ Snake and Malaa treated the quarantined crew to a back to back set at the beginning of the month with their Bet of Both Worlds livestream. The two made 42 minutes feel like 7 with a grand total of 16 bangers. The two played tracks from Frentsm Acraze and Andrea Giungo among many others. They of course queued in plenty of their own tunes like Malaa’s excellent remix of his counterpart’s “Trust Nobody.” Check the full mix below via YouTube or Soundcloud!DJ SNAKE · DJ SNAKE B2B MALAA – BEST OF BOTH WORLDS (LIVESTREAM) Share0Share0Share0Share0

New York Police have arrested Ronny Vargas and Alex Suazo, two organizers of an illegal boat party on August 1st. The party was held on The Liberty Belle, a boat that had several indoor bars and outdoor deck areas. The ship could have reached a capacity of 600, though only 170 people were reported aboard the ship. The party was exposed by a nearby resident on Twitter.
So a packed Liberty Belle party boat just departed from Pier 36 on the LES waterfront with no apparent social distancing or mask requirement. Who has jurisdiction over these floating nightclubs? @galeabrewer @CM_MargaretChin @yuhline @BrianKavanaghNY @NYPD7Pct pic.twitter.com/DVWXB3XrDz

The party was intercepted at Pier 36 on Manhattan’s Lower East Side and boarded at 11:30PM. Vargas and Souza were arrested, as well as the boat’s captain. Though New York is showing a unique downward trend of cases, the states around it are experiencing a higher influx of cases than when the pandemic started. Rebellious party organizers continue to throw underground events despite strict orders from local governments to avoid gatherings.
“I want the business in New York to do well,” said Brewer, the Manhattan borough president, told the New York Times. “But you have to follow the rules in terms of safety and health.”Share0Share0Share0Share0

Grapefruit Sound Lab follows his single ‘To Make You Mine’ with an energizing remix of Gina Volpe’s hit single, ‘Shine’. You may recognize Gina’s voice as the influential punk rocker from the East Village. Grapefruit Sound Lab takes the original single from Volpe’s ‘Different Animal’ album and gives a dark, effervescent rework. The track gets brought to life with a pulsing bassline and dark synth progressions. It’s taken to the next level with the addition of Gina’s vocal and is sure to give you the jitters for a vibrant nightlife scene. Rob Cotnoir of Grapefruit Sound Lab also lends his own vocals that compliments Gina’s very nicely.
The remix comes ahead of Grapefruit Sound Lab’s upcoming album, Eight Days Across America. This collaboration with Gina Volpe is yet another impeccable audio demonstration of his feats as a versatile electronic music artist.

There’s a lot of synth magic happening in New Jersey based, Robert Cotnoir’s, studio. In on of his latest singles, ‘To Make You Mind’, you’ll take a deep dive into a sound that’ll bring a little nostalgia into your listening experience, while wowing you with something new. The beat is driving, the synth progressions are transcendent. It’s a statement anthem that depicts Grapefruit Sound Lab’s charging attitude in the realm of electro pop. You’ll find traits of progressive house and trance, especially with Cotnoir’s revealing statement about the song’s message:
To Make You Mine is a song for mourning life’s regrets and missed opportunities, for celebrating metamorphosis and rebirth, and for holding out hope for a brighter future. – Grapefruit Sound Lab
Grapefruit Sound Lab draws from the influences of electro, house, classic rock and classical music to hone the sounds you hear today. He searches deep within himself and entangles with themes of loss, pride, redemption, and salvation among others that you can truly feel in his music. ‘To Make You Mine’ is also a celebratory single as it kick starts the countdown to his upcoming album, Eight Days Across America.

Borgeous is the latest artist to play a large show in the middle of a pandemic. At an event called “Lit Lake” at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri; the organizer’s social distancing practices were not implemented, and video footage reveals a crowd of unmasked people together in a giant cluster. Twitter has sent several cries of disgust to the artist himself, to which the artist did not reply. At this very moment, though, several users are saying he is blocking accounts that tweet negatively at him. Lit Lake is scheduled to hold more shows, though some artists are pulling out after today’s news. The U.S. reported a lower trend of COVID-19 cases as of today, but the new peak in cases and deaths is far from mitigated.

The drive-in rave fad has taken a worldwide effect. Starting in Europe then making its way over the United States as the closest thing we have right now to attending a festival. A couple of weeks ago Elon Musk took to Twitter to tease his followers about the idea of holding an “indoor/outdoor rave space” at his new Tesla factory in Berlin. Today Elon Musk once more takes to Twitter to ask about techno in the most ‘Elon Musk-y’ way you can, “Sure could use a good rave What’s your favorite techno”. Now, what makes this even better, Tiesto tweets later on asking Elon if they should be the ones to host a “drive-in party”. Trying to get on the invite list? You have to be a Tesla owner. Talk about trying to get on the guest list.
Sure could use a good rave
What’s your favorite techno
— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 30, 2020
Goodmorning @elonmusk Shall we put a drive-in party together for everyone who drives a Tesla ?
— Tiësto (@tiesto) July 30, 2020
So car raves have circled back over to the other side of the globe once more. When you compare the data it seems apparent that they are also more capable of hosting a truly safe COVID free event. Currently, in Berlin, their death record for COVID-19 was reportedly under 300 which compared to the U.S., much better is an understatement.
No event can ever claim to be perfect, however so far with the drive-in events we’ve seen in the U.S., it doesn’t look too good. Drezo told fans that he tested positive for COVID after his show with Seven Lions in Arizona. The Chainsmokers right now are facing serious backlash after performing in the Hamptons. The drive-in raves concept isn’t a terrible idea but it is not a 100% sure way of avoiding COVID either. So let’s see how Elon and Tiesto pull off this Telsa rave but you know whatever turns out being it will be nothing short of Elon’s expectations.Share0Share0Share0Share0

DJ Snake and Malaa rocked social media with an announcement that they will be live streaming together, July 30th. This is exciting for music lovers everywhere. Not only are we going to experience the b2b greatness of DJ Snake’s heavy bass and signature trap style and Malaa’s bumping house sounds, this set will be nothing short of perfection. Last time we saw DJ Snake and Malaa go B2B was at last year’s HARD Summer 2019 in Southern California, which had one of the biggest crowds to date.
Throughout this quarantine, DJ Snake has been staying under the radar, of course with the exception of his recent filthy new song “Trust Nobody.” An absolute banger if you have not had the chance to listen. Malaa on the other hand has been on various virtual lineups including Digital Mirage 2 and part of EDC LV’s Virtual-Rave-a-Thon. Let’s not forget also Malaa’s single with REZZ and Grabbitz titled “Someone Else”. The live stream will be today, July 30th at 2pm PST. Catch the live stream on DJ Snake or Malaa’s Youtube channels.Share0Share0Share0Share0

Dua Lipa teams up with her self proclaimed idols Missy Elliot and Madonna for a new remix of her single Levitate. The track was released with her album Future Nostalgia in March, and although all the artists could do was host a stay at home stream party for it, the 11 song release still gained a buzz with fans. Today, she confirmed rumors that she was collaborating with Madonna and gave us two better: in addition to the pop idol and Missy Elliot dropping verses on the song, The Blessed Madonna (formally The Black Madonna) produced the track.
It was announced last month by Dua’s managers in an interview that they had reached out to Madonna for a potential collaboration, and it looks like Madonna replied to that email! It’s not the first big collab for the Queen of Pop, who has previously collaborated with the likes of Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Madonna is of course no stranger to the Official Chart, with more Number 1 singles and albums than any other female artist in history.
Fans can look forward to the full release on August 14th.

The pandemic has put a halt to all of the live music events that we know and love. While we aren’t anywhere near being able to return to normal (and predictions say that it won’t be possible until 2022), people have been thinking outside the box so that we can still enjoy music somehow. The closest solution to normal has been drive-thru concerts. People pay per car, and the concert is held at some kind of outdoor venue. Each car is given a certain amount of space, where your car of people is supposed to stay with. Masks are usually mandated at these events, and it seems to be what the new normal is going to be for the time being. It lets people listen to music live and hopefully do it safely.
This past weekend, The Chainsmokers held a drive-thru concert in the Hamptons for a good cause. The tickets were not cheap – with the least expensive one pricing at around $1,000. The proceeds went to benefit two different charities, No Kid Hungry and Children’s Medical Fund of New York. Sounds like a great event, doesn’t it?
It could have been, except for the fact that it seems that public health guidelines were thrown to the wayside during the concert. Although it was said that every temperature was checked, people were confined to 20×20 parking spots, bathrooms were 6 feet apart, masks at all times when going to the bathroom, and hand sanitizer for everyone, the social media uploads told a different story. Photos and videos showed people close together, not wearing masks, and essentially not respecting the pandemic.
People have gone to social media to rip The Chainsmokers apart. Here’s to hoping another outbreak doesn’t come from this event, especially in a state that has been at the forefront of keeping it contained.
The Chainsmokers had a “Drive-in” concert last night.

Following their 2017 smash single “17,” MK and Carla Monroe have again joined forces on new single “2AM” out today, July 24.
Arriving just in time for summer 2020, “2AM” sees the Detroit legend draw on his tried-and-tested formula of feelgood, vocal-led house music, pairing euphoric piano keys with Carla’s unrivalled singing voice. It follows MK’s recent string of remixes for Ed Sheeran x Travis Scott’s “Antisocial,” Alicia Keys’ “Time Machine,” HOSH & 1979’s smash single “Midnight (The Hanging Tree)” and Katy Perry’s latest hit “Daisies.”
Responsible for creating some of the defining sounds and biggest tracks of early and contemporary house music (check out this SPIN article), MK (Marc Kinchen) continues to evolve as one of the most in-demand producers and DJs. His latest tracks “There For You” with Gorgon City, “Body 2 Body” and “One Night” featuring Raphaella with Sonny Fodera have racked up global streams in the millions with the latter topping at #4 on the Mediabase Dance Radio Airplay Top 100 Chart this past spring.

Fans got their first listen via Nonsens recent sets with Yellow Claw’s Barong Family Radio Show, Covidhagen Festival, and Monstercat Takover and Floss’ EDC Las Vegas Virtual Rave-A-Thon play. Out now on Ultra Music, the Floss x Nonsens collab kicks up the home listening experience with its high-energy builds and bombastic breakdowns creating an irresistible Euro and US bass banger.

Porter Robinson also announced on his birthday, July 15th, that he has resumed working on his album, ‘Nurture’ once again. This will be this artist’s first full-length album following his highly successful and deeply culturally embedded Worlds LP. “Get your wish is a song about finding a reason to keep going, even if it’s not for your own sake,” Robinson states in a previous release. The artist has had a very busy 2020 despite the world being in shutdown the way it is. Coming off of what was praised as one of the most successful online streaming events, his Second Sky online streaming event. Fans are expecting nothing less but a wonderful work from their beloved artist and we are excited to see what Porter (or Not Porter Robinson) does with the rest of the year.
