Emmit Fenn – Woman (Original Mix)

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 6:57pm

Quickly-rising producer Emmit Fenn has turned heads since his 2015 debut single, “Painting Greys,” an indie-electronic crossover that leans in the future bass direction.

The LA-based artist is back with a new sultry single “Woman,” where minimalistic production shines in its simplicity and takes a new direction for the artist. Drawling vocals sink into the soul atop a rumbling bass line and arresting hi-hats on the track, which in its dark mystery follows a similar vibe to his recent release “1995.”

Fenn combines classical piano training with a mature voice in his songwriting to create attention grabbing sounds. Combined with his genre-defying music, Fenn’s immersive website experience by web tech company Active Vision makes him one to watch in 2017.

THEY. – U RITE (Louis Futon Remix)

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 6:56pm

Louis Futon has had a busy year. He’s been flipping songs (everything from Frank Ocean to Kendrick Lamar) while continuing to work on his own original content, like his track “Surreal” with RKCB. In the midst of all of this, he’s also had time to remix THEY.‘s track, “U RITE.”

“Been a while since I dropped a banger,” the producer mused on his Facebook page upon posting the remix.

While the term “banger” is typically overused and implies generic EDM, Futon’s remix of THEY. is anything but that. With deep, pounding bass and an almost haunting melody line in the background, he’s stripped down and hollowed out the original track, making it even more dramatic.

The New Hans Zimmer vs. Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Theme is Everything and More

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 6:50pm

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike just put their spin on Hans Zimmer‘s Pirates of the Caribbean theme song, for what could be the most epic cinematic remix ever!

“He’s a Pirate” gives the iconic theme a big room upgrade, with a pounding beat and fierce synths, while keeping Zimmer’s vision intact. Vegas told Variety, “For us, it was very important to respect the original. We wanted to keep the vibe and the atmosphere, but give it a touch of today.”

These guys did what they set out to accomplish, because this mix will sound just as awesome on dance floors as it will on the big screen!

Listen to the 60-second preview right here, and check out Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in theaters this weekend.

Pigeon Caught With Almost 200 Ecstasy Pills In A Pouch On Its Back

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 6:49pm

Well, this certainly isn’t something you read every day. Redditor /u/Isralien shared a photo of a pigeon that had been caught by police “red-handed” in the act of smuggling drugs with 178 ecstasy pills in a camouflaged pouch on its back. While word on the street is that the pigeon has yet to fess up and name his co-conspirator, we very well could be in the middle of uncovering a massive drug smuggling ring perpetrated by our feathery friends.

All jokes aside, it looks like the bird in action was apprehended by Kuwaiti customs as it attempted to enter the country from Iraq. Remember that in the past, our feathery pigeon friends have long been utilized as a source of message carrier back and forth so it’s not that surprising to see them retooled for other more nefarious uses.

Slushii releases ‘Sleep’ after announcing bout of depression on Twitter

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 6:35pm

Slushii’s swift rise to international fame has impacted him drastically. The young star recently wiped out the vast majority of his Twitter, later citing depression and overall toxicity from social media as his reason for silence as of late. That said, he reassured followers, he’ll be coming back “stronger than ever.”

It appears as though the LA native is already plotting his return, taking to his “Archives” account on SoundCloud to show off his newest piece, “Sleep.” Mellow as ever, the piece starts off in a blissful manner with a gentle synth hook and ethereal piano chords.

“Sleep” serves as one of Slushii’s most unique pieces to date, incorporating eclectic elements and smooth vocal samples that make the finished product almost reminiscent of a Porter Robinson production. It leaves the listener feeling relaxed and cathartic upon its end; quite different than the usual “turn up” mood one feels when going through his repertoire. Indeed, his return is looking to be quite strong.

Prismo Opens Up About 2017 and His Newest Single “Serenity”

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 6:15pm

Prismo has become a household name with future bass driven chords, stunning melodies, and most recently beautiful vocals. The young producer has already garnered a lot of attention in the industry, landing him a spot at this year’s inaugural Middlelands Festival, shows at this year’s SXSW, and support from MrSuicideSheep and Trap Nation. It’s safe to say that this kid is on the right path. I was able to catch up with him to talk about his newest single “Serenity”, his plans for 2017, his Drop It Low mix series, and upcoming shows and releases. Take a read below:

2017 has been your biggest year yet. With that said, you must be eager to keep the momentum going. Can you give us some insight into what you’re excited for for the rest of the year?

I’m really excited to expand on my live set and introduce a new wave of Prismo sounds that were recorded and written in a live setting. I just recently played my first set with live drums, keys, and vocals at Middlelands in the beginning of May. I think this refreshing new take on my performance is really going to drive my current momentum forward.

What inspired you to start singing on your records?

I’ve always loved singing and serenading my family and friends. I even sang in a couple bands and cover projects in grade school! It just felt natural to begin adding my own vocals to my songs.

Are you still going to school on top of touring and creating music?

I was a full time student at Texas A&M for the past two years and I’ve recently taken a step back from school to focus on my music career. I am still studying and taking a very light online course load through Texas A&M, but touring and creating music is my top priority now.  

What got you into music in the first place?

My father was a musician and I grew up listening to all different kinds of bands and compositions. When I was 7 years old, I started playing drums and then soon picked up bass, guitar, and piano. My dad sparked my passion for music and that passion continues to grow everyday.

You’ve played some huge shows this year. (Middlelands, UME, SXSW) What has been your favorite? What shows do you have coming up that you’re most excited for?

Middlelands was probably my favorite show so far. I played a 100% original set with live instruments and the whole preparation for that show taught me a lot of valuable lessons. As far as shows coming up, I’m most excited to play Night Nation Run, a HUGE glow-run and music festival. I first played a side stage at a Night Nation Run event two years ago, and now they’re bringing me back to headline the show. It’s gonna be fun. There are a few other shows I’m really excited about but I can’t talk about them yet.  

I want to talk about your new release, “Serenity” for quick second. What was the inspiration behind the lyrics?

Serenity is about finding peace regardless of the chaos around you. When I “find my sweet serenity” I know I’m ready to move on, forgive, or grow from whatever situation I was struggling with. Serenity was inspired by the finding your light at the end of the tunnel when overcoming challenges. The message of the song really hit home with me and that’s why the vocal is longer than your typical prismo lyric.

Did you start with the lyrics, the melody, or the arrangement first for “Serenity”?

I started with the vocal hook, it just popped into my head.

What was your favorite part of making the track?

My favorite part of writing the track was experimenting with new sounds and adding powerful harmonies to the lead vocal. The whole vocal has this warm vintage feel but it’s still in your face in the front of the mix.  

When can we expect the next Drop It Low mix show?

Sometime soon! And expect the next installment of my Drop It Low series to be live.

Which artists are you most inspired by these days?

Recently I’ve been really inspired by artists like Illenium, k?d, and Hex Cougar. I’ve also been going back and listening to a lot of older Madeon and Nero songs.

Who do you want to collaborate with the most?

I really want to work with artists that complement the live Prismo sound. Illenium, San Holo, and Louis The Child are a few I can think of.

I’m told you have singles coming out on NCS and Trap Nation’s Lowly Palace this summer. Can you tell us anything about those tracks? What can we expect?

Both of those tracks are some of my best work to date. My song on NCS includes a really raw vocal session — probably my favorite vocal/lyrics yet.

Your music has moved in a distinct direction in the past year with your take on the future bass sound. Can we expect this trend to continue, or is your music still evolving?

I’m maintaining a lot of the darker Prismo themes that can be heard in my past releases. But some parts of my sound are still evolving. I’ve learned a lot about myself creatively lately, so prepare yourself for some fresh but familiar sounds in the coming months.

All Live Nation Events Go Under Enhanced Security Procedures

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 5:47pm

Live Nation, one of the world’s largest concert promoters, has put into place enhanced security procedures at its events following this week’s bombing in Manchester at an Ariana Grande event.

The special notice issued to venues and attendees reads, “Due to enhanced security procedures, no bags or backpacks will be permitted into the venue except for small personal bags or purses (12″x12″x6″ max) or clear 1 gallon bags.”

“All bags will be subject to a search. We encourage you to not bring in any bag whatsoever and make use of the express ‘no bag’ lanes.”

Camelbak backpacks and similar models must meet the dimensions specified in the notice and reservoirs must be EMPTY of any liquid.

The full reach and effect, not to mention duration, of the new security procedures is unknown.

If you can avoid bringing a bag to shows in the near future, it is highly recommended.

Live Nation events include Austin City Limits, Bonaroo, EDC Vegas, EDC Orlando, Electric Forest, Hard Summer, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza and more.

All Live Nation events are on mandatory elevated risk protocols. Please plan accordingly.

Stream JOYRYDE’s blistering ‘Night Owl Radio’ mix

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 5:46pm

When it comes to making music, Jonney Ford, also known as JOYRYDE, goes against the grain, pushing the envelope with production techniques while keeping things fresh, striving to be different and at the same time staying true to his artistry. He is influenced by Jauz and Ghastly alike and has described his sound as simultaneously old and new school, bringing some of his own UK garage scene influence to the table with every track.

Joyryde delivers a thirty minute playlist in anticipation for EDC Las Vegas which is now less than a month away. In the mix, he features a variety of styles including tracks from Dr Fresch, Destructo, Migos, Herobust, and Malaa to name a few. The mix is full of surprises and will most definitely be a wonderful addition to pre-games, parties, and of course, car rides, for Joyryde’s namesake.

Pigeon carrying 200 pills of ecstasy captured by authorities

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 5:32pm

Pigeons have been carrying messages from point A to point B for centuries, known as the world oldest couriers, pigeons have been a means of delivery before technology made communication easier. However, in contemporary times, it seems as if the pigeon is being used for criminal activities.

In Kuwait, a homing pigeon was caught transporting drugs by custom officials. Around 178 pills were found wrapped around the bird that reportedly came from Iraq and was being tracked by the customs department. According to, Al Arabiya, a Saudi-owned pan-Arab television news channel, the pigeon was caught by the officials above a building near their office. No one currently knows the source of the drugs, but details will soon be developing.

Shallows – Matter (BLU J remix)

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 5:21pm

BLU J is a house act I’ve been very excited about ever since I first heard their remix of Ariana Grande’s “Into You”. After a heavy release schedule since then, and a collaboration with SNBRN under their belts, the duo has just struck gold with their latest remix, a very dark flip of Shallow’s “Matter”.

Starting off with dark low end complimented by a very bright lead, the track comes to life as soon as the vocal is brought in. The pre-chorus consists of the vocal over-top of some phenomenally lush plucks, which is quite honestly my favorite part of the track. We’re then treated to the drop – a dark bass line layered with some vocal chops, huge drums, and a solid groove. Moving forward, BLU J keeps a similar arrangement while toying with some tension building writing.

This remix is definitely something you do not want to miss out on, and BLU J are ones to keep an eye on.

Martin Garrix Shares First HQ Listen Of “There For You” With Troye Sivan

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 5:04pm

Though we’ve managed to hear “There For You” with Troye Sivan a couple times since it was premiered at Coachella, including a second guest performance from Sivan this past weekend in San Francisco, there’s yet to be an HQ recording of the track. With only two days to go until its official release, Martin has just uploaded the first HQ clip of the song to Facebook.

The video shared on Facebook could also contain scenes from the music video for the single. Martin looking pensively outside a chainlink fence, and waves crashing against the rocks… definitely part of that Garrix motif.

Listen to the 37-second clip below and prepare for the full release on Friday!

Ariana Grande Officially Suspends Tour

Your EDM - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 4:51pm

Following the bombing in Manchester Monday night, Ariana Grande has officially suspended her “Dangerous Woman” tour.

Grande’s management team announced in a statement Wednesday that it had suspended the tour “until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost.”

All shows through June 5 have been cancelled.

“We ask at this time that we all continue to support the city of Manchester and all those families affected by this cowardice and senseless act of violence,” the singer’s management said in its statement. “Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together.”

The attack resulted in the death of 22 individuals and 59 injuries. The UK raised their terror threat level to ‘critical’ in response of the attack, meaning that they expect another attack could be imminent.

Premiere: Timo Maas & James Teej adapt Moby’s ‘Porcelain’ to after-hours dance floors

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 4:35pm

Moby’s music has inspired a vast influx of re-interpretations as of late in honor of his 13th album’s release. Adding themselves to the fray are seasoned collaborators Timo Maas and James Teej, who’ve put forth a deep, grooving “Broken China Dub” of “Porcelain.”

Both talents have worked frequently together in the past, and their chemistry is highly audible within their vision of “Porcelain.” Ensuring the original’s aesthetic is kept in place, Maas and Teej season its signature piano chords and dissonant synths with a throbbing bass-line and eclectic percussion. These subtle, yet crucial elements make “Porcelain” adaptable to the after hours dance-floor, hypnotizing listeners as it gently rolls along its course.

Timo & James’ rendition of “Porcelain” was initially shared as part of Rocket & Ponies’ celebration of Vinyl day. The piece reaches digital shelves come May 24.

Eric Prydz will release his first official song as Tonja Holma on his new record label

Dancing Astronaut - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 3:37pm

This Saturday, May 27, Eric Prydz will debut his heralded EPIC 5.0 live performance, a development which his legions of devotees have fervently awaited since its announcement in November 2016. This past weekend, the Swedish savant honored the forthcoming event with the reprise of his EPIC Radio mix series for Beats 1. Throughout the progressive-leaning episode, Prydz premiered several new tracks – including the first on-air play of the Pryda remix for his Cirez D classic, “On Off.” Among the additional new music debuted on the program was “Feel,” from Cristoph.

Today, May 24, Eric Prydz has revealed that the progressive prodigy’s track will become the first release on his new imprint, “Pryda Presents.” Though the announcement does not stipulate an intended release date for the single, it does include a particularly scintillating secondary piece of information regarding one of the iconic producer’s many aliases.

Though most think of Eric Prydz’s production characters as a trinity – his own name, Pryda, and Cirez D – the producer has a bank of more covert pseudonyms which are oft forgotten. One such alter-ego is Tonja Holma, who Prydz has announced will mark the second release on Pryda Presents.

Though Prydz has included selections from the rarely occurring alias in many of his mixes over the past several years, the forthcoming output will mark the first official release that the artist has ever provided as Tonja Holma. In preparation for the momentous label debut of the project, we’ve compiled three tracks credited to Tonja Holma in various mixes.
