On September 6th, Steve Aoki will he the 6th member of the Backstreet Boys. How on earth does that happen, you ask? Well, take a look at the album cover of his latest single with the classic boyband on Instagram.
In the post, he asks nicely with an upside down smiley if he can join the group.
“Can I be the 6th member,” Aoki asks in the Instagram post.
“Yes, yes you can be,” Backstreet Boys respond in the comments. “Can’t wait for everyone to hear this.”
We’re happy to say they obliged, and the single will be out officially to cement this on the 6th. Will this mean 6 cakes launching off Backstreet Boys concert stages at a time worldwide are in the making?
Check back here to listen to “Let It Be Me” next Friday, September 6th!

Taxes are everyone’s favorite thing, said pretty much no one ever. And when you go somewhere on vacation, you get hit with a lot of taxes meant for tourists. In Vegas, there are hotel taxes that are 13.5% percent, which is kind of crazy.
This tax rate is coming and hitting EDC Las Vegas. In 2018, the festival did something brand new and offered camping for attendees. It was a great set up because you no longer had to deal with the strip and the crazy traffic that came getting to and from the festival to your hotel.
Clark County, Nevada, has now decided to hit Camp EDC with the same tax. In an email sent out to past campers, Insomniac explained that the lodging and hotel strip taxes were not an expected development. As a result, Insomniac will take the blow for the tax cost is you purchase your passes by 11:59 PT on September 2nd, 2019. After that, the sales will reflect the tax. You can still go on a payment plan by purchasing at that time, making it easier for people who know they are headed to EDC and want to avoid that 13.5% increase.
Pass for EDC Vegas 2020 are not on sale yet, but Pasquale in his email promised a special purchase link to come soon.

Signaling cryptic messages is Swedish House Mafia’s bread and butter; they pulled off another move like that at the end of their Creamfields set. A simple message showed up on the screen right after their last song rang through the arena: 06.09.19. That would mean the 6th of next month…but what is being revealed is still a secret. Considering there are already some tour dates on the map, it’s more likely to mean new music. The latter is probably more desired, as plenty of IDs fans are eagerly waiting for. Arty even said he’s anxious to remix a song the three Swedes have barely acknowledged. In a time in which albums are coming within a day of their announcement thanks to artists like Beyoncé and Missy Elliot, we’d like to hope the Swedes will jump on that train too. Whatever the case, less than two weeks remain until the news drops.Share0Share0Share0Share0

Isabelle Rezazadah AKA Rezz’s first essential mix took raised the bar much higher for debutants to the legendary show. As she promised on Twitter, it was two hours of originals, both classics and brand new productions. She squeezed in solo productions and collaborations with 13, Raito, 1788-L among her several other confidants.
While several DJs pay homage to records from the past that may have influenced them or showcase music on their own label, Rezz put herself to the task of composing a journey of 44 products from her own lab. The result is an insane 110BPM or lower symphony of gritty basslines and melodies from another galaxy.

While the U.S. may not see the EPIC Sphere until there’s a ceiling that can hold it up, we do get to experience the marvel that is Deadmau5’s new cube 3.0. As a matter of fact, L.A. gets to see it five nights in a row at the Hollywood Palladium. The U.K. got their first and only look at it this weekend at Creamfields, For those who need convincing to check it out, the full show is available to stream online from the performance.
It’s always a treat to see a Deadmau5 show not only for the front row seat to brand new tunes, but because of his classics like Raise Your Weapon reimagined through new stage theatrics and other vocalists like his special guest Lights singing the lyrics. This is only one of several savor-able moments from the performance to check out. We’d say not to wear it out too much, but the beauty of a show like this is that nothing can replace being in front of the cube on a night out with your buddies.Share0Share0Share0Share0
