‘Rebirth’ is the closing track on Italian DJ/Producer, Max Porcelli’s, track-titled LP. Following the lines of a modern jazz production, ‘Rebirth’ finds rhythm with a low, rumbling bassline followed by snares and cymbals that bring a melody to life. It’s a tune to turn on when you want to dance alone in the dark. The song serves as the perfect closer to Porcelli’s ground breaking album.
Max Porcelli currently operates his own record label, 989 Records, that has put out releases for the better part of a decade. In addition to his own label, Porcelli has put out tracks on Pacha Recordings, Streetlab, and Rise Records. His achievements in music have many aspiring and veteran musicians in Italy giving nods to accolades.

Paris-born DJ and producer Tchami has unveiled his second double-single release of 2020, composed of tracks ‘Born Again’ and ‘Buenos Aires’, out 29th May via his imprint CONFESSION.
Kicking things off, ‘Born Again’ is a deep, groove-laden floor-filler that skillfully makes use of euphoric, hands-in-the-air piano keys. Similarly dancefloor-focused, ‘Buenos Aires’ is an irresistible slice of fresh, carefree filter house – strung together by an infectious looped vocal sample. It follows February’s double-single release of ‘Proud’ and ‘Ghosts’, with all four of the tracks set to feature on Tchami’s debut album Year Zero, out later this year.
Coining the term future house, and widely recognized as it’s creator, the French producer has since toured with Skrillex, Diplo, and DJ Snake whilst collaborating with the likes of Martin Garrix, Jack Ü, and AC Slater. As a member of the DJ quartet ‘Pardon My French’ and founder of his own label CONFESSION, his expertise and breadth as a producer and songwriter remain unrivaled. His label has seen him foster and develop artists such as Malaa, Mercer, AC Slater, Dusty Cloud, Loge21, and numerous others independently on a global scale.
His versatile fusion of UK bass, EDM, future house, and everything in between renders him a truly electrifying, world-leading DJ and visceral showman. Globally, this has seen him perform at the likes of Creamfields, Tomorrowland, SW4, Mysteryland, and Dreamland.
Another captivating double-single offering from Tchami, ‘Born Again’ / ‘Buenos Aires’ sees the Parisian drop two dancefloor bombs ahead of the full album release.

Following the enormous success of the first Digital Mirage Festival, Los Angeles based independent electronic music brands Proximity and Brownies & Lemonade today announced their return to the virtual festival community with Digital Mirage 2, slated to take place June 5-7, 2020.
Over the span of three days in April, Digital Mirage made its mark as one of the first major live-streamed music festivals, drawing in over one million attendees across the weekend. The event raised over $300,000 to benefit Sweet Musicians Relief Fund, a charity committed to supporting musicians and music industry professionals whose primary income source has been severely affected due to the effects of Covid-19. Audience members were graced with fifty performances from artists like Alison Wonderland, SOFI TUKKER, Valentino Khan, TOKiMONSTA, Louis the Child, Chet Porter, Mija, Ghastly, Keys N Krates and more.
As part of the June event, streamers that tune in can once again expect a heavy hitting lineup with artists and producers representing all walks of the electronic music industry. Performances will include a live loop set from turntablist extraordinaire A-Trak, bass legend Baauer, hard-edged label boss Boys Noize, electro-pop selector Elohim, saxophone wielding GRiZ and a Redux set from renowned house veteran Kaskade. Further streams will be provided by leading Aussie export and Beats1 broadcaster Anna Lunoe, GUD VIBRATIONS leader NGHTMRE, a unique Concertgebouw Set from Oliver Heldens, pristine future bass from San Holo, melodic mastery by SG Lewis, genre blending by Two Feet, a singular set from electronic powerhouse ZHU, and dramatic alt-pop from breakout star EVAN GIIA amongst many others.
Digital Mirage was one of the pioneering digital music festivals that shaped the direction of the live music industry at the start of the covid-19 shelter-in-place order. All proceeds will be donated to Plus1’s Fund for COVID-19 relief and artists performing the festival. The festival, completely free of charge, generates funds through participant donations.
With a prior reputation for fostering dedicated internet-based communities, Proximity, Brownies & Lemonade and Keel represent the next wave in music entrepreneurs aimed to foster the future of the global music industry.Share0Share0Share0Share0

The first half of 2020 saw music festivals and concerts getting canceled left and right as the country and the world shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, even though some states are beginning to reopen, the future of mass events – such as music festivals and concerts – is still uncertain.
At the beginning of the pandemic, some festivals postponed or canceled their event until 2021, while others postponed it to the fall, hoping that things would turn around. Coachella, one of the biggest festivals in the world, postponed until October. While people are hoping that a festival such as Coachella could happen by then, it seems to be less and less plausible as time goes by.
Today, according to sources in contact with Bloomberg, the organizers of Coachella are asking the artists on the lineup for this year to play 2021 instead. The sources asked to remain anonymous because the plans have not been firmed up and confirmed. Coachella in the past has only made announcements when things are certain. The decision to cancel or postpone to 2021 has a lot of moving parts. Issues such as insurance, finances, and working with local health and governing authorities all need to happen. As a result, Goldenvoice has not responded to a request for comment or said anything regarding the matter since the October postponement announcement in March.
This year’s Coachella had a stellar lineup – with Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, and Rage Against the Machine headlining. According to Bloomberg’s sources, some artists have confirmed they can play next year.
When the original postponement was announced, Goldenvoice gave the option for ticket holders to get a refund or hold their ticket for the Fall. If it does get moved to 2021, the hope is that the same offer would be given again. The music and entertainment industry is suffering. Goldenvoice is owned by AEG, the second-largest presenter of live music and entertainment events after Live Nation, which has helped keep them afloat.
Predictions from health authorities and entertainment companies believe that we won’t be able to get back to events until summer 2021. All we can do is wait and see.SOURCE Share0Share0Share0Share0

The Brothers Macklovitch, better known by their individual stage names A-trak and Dave1 (Chromeo), are finally releasing new music together. They both champion their respective bases in dance music, A-Trak a DMC world champion and Dave1 co-sharing the title of king of Funk with his Chromeo partner P-Thugg. Their first release was an edit of Rafael Saadiq’s ‘So Ready’ single showcasing the duo’s talents of mixing R&B, house, and funk.
Their official release just dropped today, Give Love To Get Some, which took us back in time with feels of 90’s house and R&B vibes with a contemporary flair. Dutch singer Levan Kali lends his amazing vocals to the song, chanting repeatedly the single’s title throughout the track.
We absolutely can not wait for the brothers to do some show dates as the Brothers Macklovitch. Maybe they’ll do a livestream in the meantime?

August 2020 is bringing with it a new album release from Disclosure. The duo announced that on August 28, their third studio album, ENERGY, is going to be released. The album is going to consist of 11 tracks, with a titular track included. In addition to the album announcement, the “ENERGY” track itself was also released.
ENERGY brings with it collaborations left and right. There are appearances from a variety of artists, some who have worked with the duo before and are well-known and others who have not. Kelis opens up the album, and other artists to make an appearance include Channel Tres, Aminé, slowthai, Mick Jenkins, Mali Mali, Fatoumata Diawara, Blik Bassy, Kehlani, Syd, and Common.
Disclosure speaks about the album as one that emanated from the singular word – energy.
The thing that decided which songs made it and which songs didn’t was that one word: energy. Every track was written really quickly. That’s why we had to write so many songs because those ones don’t come up every day. Or every week. Or every month.
The titular song, and in a domino effect, the album, is built around cut-up samples of Eric Thomas. Thomas is a motivational speaker who appeared in Disclosure’s 2013, “When a Fire Starts to Burn.” Disclosure explains that they, “…cut up various speeches to make something that makes sense. What he says is basically the whole concept for the record, that’s why it became the title track.”
The tracklist for ENERGY is as follows:
Disclosure seems excited for what they have created and are releasing this summer. Guy Lawrence spoke a bit about the album, stating:
It’s such a privileged lane that we’ve found ourselves in. It’s great that we can play to 20,000 people and then go and play a dark, sweaty rave. We just want the most amount of people to have the most amount of enjoyment. We can’t wait to do it again and again when the time comes.
You can pre-order ENERGY on vinyl, CD, and cassette here, and if you do, you will instantly receive a digital download of the title track. You can also give a listen to the title track below. It is a single that gets us hype, filled with Brazilian beats and, well, energy. Let us know your thoughts!Share0Share0Share0Share0

The pandemic brought many show cancellations and postponements, and The Weeknd as included in the casualty crossfire of COVID-19. 2020 was the year that The Weeknd was releasing a new album and going on a global tour. The album was thankfully still able to be released. “After Hours“ came out on March 20, 2020, the fourth studio album by the Canadian singer. The tour, however, had to be postponed.
When the announcement was made back in March after realizing that the pandemic was here to stay for a while, The Weeknd stressed that it was not a cancellation, but a postponement. “The tour is still happening – we’re not canceling,” the singer told Variety, “We just have to rearrange the dates, which is unfortunate but certainly understandable.”
Today, the new dates have been revealed. The tour has been pushed pretty much to a year later, starting on June 12, 2020 in Vancouver, Canada. It carries on worldwide and wraps up in Berlin, Germany that November. The artists opening for The Weekend – Sabrino Claudio, Don Toliver, and Black Atlass – are going to be joining the tour in parts or its entirety throughout North America and the EU.
For those who had tickets for the 2020 tour, the tickets are transferable to the newly scheduled dates. Every city except New Orleans was rescheduled. While the tour asked concert-goer to hold on to their tickets if possible, if you cannot make it to the new show, you can request a refund after receiving the email with instructions on how to do so.

In early December 2019 just as the creative world was invading Miami for Art Basel, deadmau5 joined The Neptunes at North Miami’s Criteria Recording Studios for a secret studio session laying the groundwork for the new single “Pomegranate.” Released today, May 20 on mau5trap, deadmau5 & The Neptunes “Pomegranate” takes Joel Zimmerman, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo into a new plane of sweet-jam R&B with electro-pop panache.
The luscious “Pomegranate” straddles remarkably well between the two worlds of deadmau5 and The Neptunes. Heavy electronic basslines, shimmering tones and sensual lyrics delivered by The Neptunes’ Pharrell Williams combine for a breezy collaboration ready to dominate radio waves and playlists this spring.

Nevada’s mega clubs are facing more issues than typical businesses on the Las Vegas Strip. As states begin phased reopening of all of their businesses, bars and nightlife venues will have an extremely difficult time adhering to new social distancing guidelines. The American Nightlife Association and the International Nightlife Association are brainstorming ways to effectively hold their events, but packed crowds are a necessity for businesses to make enough money.
With most venues around the country scrambling to sell tickets for less than half a potential venue capacity, this will be a serious challenge. “A landowner will not take 25 percent of the rent. Utility companies will not take 25 percent of the cost to operate. A venue that sells just alcohol cannot generate revenue. If they sell food, they can have some revenue,” said American Nightlife Association president JC Diaz. “A lot of countries are looking at [Vegas] to take the lead– what the quality and standards should be.” At the moment, venues like Marquee Nightclub, Hakassan, XS, and Omnia may be closed until next year.
At the time of this post, Nevada governor Steve Sisolak has not announced guidelines for the reopening of bars or nightlife. Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman is urging the reopening of the city, but said she wants to leave the specific social distancing and safety guidelines up to each individual business.SOURCE Share0Share0Share0Share0

In the wake of the 2020 cancellation of Lightning in a Bottle due to the effects of COVID-19, Do LaB, one of North America’s premier independent music and arts festival promoters, today revealed the lineup and more for the first-ever DGTL LIB livestream music festival, taking place Memorial Day Weekend, May 22-24. By combining all of the musical curation, whimsy and wackiness, cause-driven educational programming and centering wellness offerings that create the lasting memories Lightning in a Bottle attendees are so fond of, the DoLaB will once again bring their community together, despite the distance.
As we continue to adjust to new forms of entertainment during covid-19, DGTL LIB sets itself apart as a digital festival as it welcomes performances from class industry selectors and LIB veterans alike, from Glitch Mob to the first-ever live streamed performance from urban beatsmith Kaytranada, to TOKiMONSTA, Shiba San, CloZee, Beats Antique, Mr. Carmack, Opiuo, Justin Jay, Funk Hunters, Monolink, Rinzen, Elephant Heart, Dirtwire, Patricio, Jeremy Sole, Antennae, and many more.
Not only will performers curate one-of-a-kind sets for guests to enjoy, but select artists will perform in favorite LIB stages, redesigned as digital environments by Vita Motus Design Studio to create a full immersive experience. From the colourful tendrils of the Woogie to the striking bass-heavy temple of Thunder Stage, there’ll be a musical home for everyone. By utilizing Unreal Engine technology and leveraging live production expertise, all elements of a real production are able to seamlessly integrate and bring an engaging broadcast to life from various remote locations, including set design, lighting design, video mapped content, embedded performances, camera capture, and more.
“For the first time ever, a branded festival environment has been recreated in a gaming engine to be used for live broadcast,” said Heather Shaw, CEO of Vita Motus Design Studio. “We at Vita Motus think that Lightning in a Bottle is an ideal environment to showcase our realtime rendering capabilities because of its completely unique architecture, iconic design, and immersive content.”
“Here at Do LaB, we’ve always been forward-thinking and our longtime partnership with Vita Motus has helped us bring our insane visions to life,” said Jesse Flemming, President of Do LaB, Inc. “We are excited to be pushing the envelope with them again, but this time in the digital world.”
DGTL LIB attendees can expect to reconnect with the same dedicated community of adventurers, educators, and visual artists that have made up the festival’s programming since the early 2000s. The educational haven of The Compass will offer viewers with classes on Water Color Painting with Coffee, Aphrodisiac Chocolates, and making Sourdough Bread along with in-depth discussions on Aliens & ExtraTerrestrials with film producer Alan Steinfeld and a special Kiss the Ground presentation from actress Nat Kelly.
No LIB is complete without the discovery of wacky activities and independent entertainment collectives that really give the festival its ability to surprise and delight. The vintage Frontierville of The Grand Artique will return to DGTL LIB to offer a live talent and variety show, in addition, to live interactive art, improv theater, open mic’ and more from The Jive Joint and The Fungineers.
DoLaB fans and the LIB community is known for its resilience and its ability to adapt, and the introduction of DGTL LIB will be no different. 2020 attendees can expect the experience of a lifetime guided by forward-thinking musical curation, immersive art installations, and cause-driven educational programming that has come to define the brand and can tune in by following DGTL LIB on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/libfestival

Creative drive brought producers MOUNT & Emdey together to recreate a stellar classic, ‘Venus’. The club ready remake pays homage to the 60s anthem with a contemporary twist. If you weren’t screaming the lyrics in your lovely singing voice, you might want to turn your speakers up and give it another listen.
“Creativity for me is the most important aspect of music, in order to constantly redefine myself. I became aware of Marvin’s work (Emdey), while searching for new creative input and people to work with. After numerous conversations we realised relatively quickly, that we were vibing extremely well – personally as well as musically. It was only a matter of time before we began working on our first project. And that’s how ‘Venus’ was being created – the first result, and one out of many ideas.” -Mount
The collaboration also showcases a new direction for both artists of what lies ahead in their respective careers. Emdey (formerly MD Electro) has been producing dance music since the age of 17, catching the attention of veteran producers such as Armin van Burren.

This artist’s music takes me back to the massive Oregon Eclipse Festival in 2017. Described by his peers as one of the most innovated artists of our times, Mohamed Assani’s latest album is a surefire way to back up that claim. ‘Wayfinder’ is a 7 track album that provides new listeners a little audio snack of South East Asian/Pakistani influences melding with electronic music elements.
‘Black Sugar’ is my personal favorite as it gives listeners a vibe similar to Flying Lotus and the ethereal sounds of the Brainfeeder label. You find that Mohamed is an exceptional sitar player as the instrument is found in every track on ‘Wayfinder’. ‘Lullaby for Guli’ pushes the envelop even more by adding basslines and synthesizers akin to that of modern bass music and dubstep
‘Wayfinder’ found huge support at the Indian Summer Festival streaming event this past April, where several hundred listeners tuned in to feel the music.
Give the album a listen down below!

The Canadian DJ joining forces with the hip-hop/R&B duo that is Pharell Williams and Chad Hugo is about to be a blending of talent that we cannot wait to hear.
While we don’t have a timeline on any releases dates, we do know the name of the collaboration album is “Pomegranate.” Hopefully, we’ll get some singles that are released before the album is that will hold us over as we wait.
