The Essential Mix hits festival season with 5 sets from EDC and Glastonbury

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 10:59pm

As June draws to a close and summer officially begins, the de facto “festival season” finds itself in the midst of its peak. In celebration of the ongoing abundance of music festivals around the globe, BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix broadcast a special six-hour episode this weekend, tapping into enviable sets from two of the world’s largest festivals: the British Glastonbury festival and Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival.

For the first three hours of this weekend’s Essential Mix, Radio 1 broadcast three consecutive sets live from Glastonbury’s BBC Music Introducing Stage. UK house mainstays Patrick Topping and Richy Ahmed provide the first third of the Glastonbury coverage, followed by a set from swiftly-ascending Berlin-based DJ Peggy Gou. Rounding out the first half of the Essential Mix’s festival edition, in-demand Glaswegian artist Jackmaster purveys a mix which would prove duly coveted as a standalone episode in the Radio 1 series (as would any of the aforementioned).

For the following 90 minutes, the Essential Mix pivots stateside to rebroadcast a set from one of the most scintillating names that the program has offered in 2017: John Digweed. For his EDC performance, the legendary British artist builds an entrancing sonic journey of progressive house and techno, including freshly-minted music from the likes of Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, and Victor Ruiz.

Listen to John Digweed’s EDC Essential Mix

The program’s festival marathon finishes up with another 90-minute EDC set from Lee Foss. Coming off of his April debut album, Alchemy, the American artist has been a formidable force in house in techno in recent years, sitting with Jamie Jones at the helm of Hot Creations as well as his own Repopulate Mars imprint. Foss’ EDC show succeeds in showing off his essence of quirky, soulful tech house. Filled with unreleased and unidentified music, the mix is further replete with songs from the likes of CamelPhat and Latmun, and ends fittingly with Jamiroquai’s “Cloud 9.”

Tomorrowland Will Reportedly Get Rid of The Opera Stage This Year

Your EDM - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 9:49pm

Since 2014, Tomorrowland’s Opera Stage has remained a permanent fixture of the iconic festival having seen artists like Paul Kalkbrenner, Carl Cox, DVBBS, the historic Deadmau5 v Eric Prydz set last year and much more. Unfortunately, it looks like that iconic set from last year will the last ever memory for the stage because it’s going to be replaced according to EDM Tunes.

Its replacement will be the Amicorum Spectaculum that will stand where the Opera Stage once stood. The name of the stage is reflected in the theme of the festival this year, also Amicorum Spectaculum, so we can expect something incredible in the next few weeks.

Check out the trailer for more clues to how this stage might shape up.

Pasquale Rotella announces ‘big changes’ to EDC are on the horizon

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 8:06pm

Last weekend, Electric Daisy Carnival returned to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for its 2017 iteration. The festival, which drew roughly 135,000 attendees for each day of its three-day tenure, boasts the claim of being the largest music festival in the country this year. However, Insomniac’s flagship event was not without its setbacks.

Though, statistically speaking, the sole fatality and 1,000 medical calls made during the weekend indicated that EDC placed an emphasis on harm reduction efforts, the oppressive heat of the weekend was a complaint for many attendees. Indeed, some artists blamed the high temperatures as a factor to recurrent sound issues during certain performances. Insomniac also faced complaints regarding the shuttle lines and level of traffic that hindered the process of festival entry, which some argue is related to their banning of third party shuttle services from the festival this year.

This weekend, Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella held a live stream on Instagram during the currently ongoing Electric Forest, which his company produces in conjunction with Madison House Presents. During the stream, Rotella noted that “big changes” for EDC Las Vegas are coming up, adding that he intends to announce the change soon and is writing out a presumed statement “while here at eforest.”

It’s currently unclear what the “big changes” for the festival will be. Some have speculated the possibility of a venue change, which could help ameliorate the formidable heat of EDC Las Vegas, but might prove problematic to festival’s ability to take place through the wee hours of the morning. Another popular hypothesis is the annual rumor of EDC becoming a two-weekend festival, despite the fact that it did not sell out in 2017.

Only time will tell what changes are in store for the country’s currently-reigning largest music festival, but it appears that Rotella is not taking the announcement lightly.

Savoy release full 12-track remix pack for ‘Tomorrow Today, Pt. 1’

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 7:08pm

A couple months back, livetronica trio Savoy began releasing remixes of their latest EP, Tomorrow Today, Pt. 1, beginning with their own VIP of the track “The Wolf.” To the joy of their fans, they continued to release quality remix after quality remix on a weekly basis from artists such as 2ToneDisco, Light House, and Summer Was Fun.

Now the group has put the full pack forth, and it’s a hefty one – 12 remixes in total, all available for free. One of the standout tracks in the pack is the remix of “The Wolf” from Varien, who creates a uniquely heavy and groovy midtempo groove – dubbed “industrial pop” – that highlights the dark, eery side of Bright Lights’ catchy vocals to an even greater degree than Savoy’s own remix.

Darkness aside, the remix pack’s 12 tracks span many genres and will have something for just about everyone. From almost tropical easy-listening to weird and wonky bass; melodic house to dubstep and many genres in between. For those that missed them on their live tour, they are switching it up and playing a series of DJ sets across the States this summer. The full schedule for these shows can be found here.

Shlohmo fashions smooth new mix, ‘For Tha Summer’

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 7:02pm

Illustrious indie hip-hop producer Shlohmo has provided his followers with a gift to celebrate Summer’s arrival: a 30-minute minimix packed with brand new edits. He takes on a multitude of singles that have been all over the radio the past year, including Future’s “Mask Off” and “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd, and transforms them into his smooth brand of bass.

Each piece flows perfectly into the next, creating a dreamy and well-crafted mix whose mellow nature indeed fits the season it was made for. Hopefully, the remixes played out during the mix will be seeing official releases in the near future.

Xan Griffin – Cancer featuring Emilia Ali (Original Mix)

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 6:59pm

Step into the dream world of Xan Griffin‘s newest offering…

The 17 year old producer’s smooth R&B crossover sound is exemplary on “Cancer,” featuring Emilia Ali. The Boston singer’s warm voice shines on the easy listening tune, which follows his last astrology-themed offering, “Gemini.” In line with the astrology reading, “Cancer” is moodier and more intimate than “Gemini,” with gentle production and sensual vocals. Both singles are lifted off of Griffin’s forthcoming, aptly named Zodiac project.

The artist comments on the release, explaining, “I based the song off of the character of a cancer of course. It is a water sign meaning very into their feelings and intimate. The song is so much different from others I have made because it is a major mood change from raging synths and huge build ups to an intimate sensual track that represents this water sign.”

While a young artist, Griffin is making major waves across numerous genres. The California native dabbles in everything from dubstep-leaning remixes of Marshmello and The Chainsmokers to the melodic future bass flavors of his original “U Remind Me” featuring Anuka.

Rain Man & MAX – Do You Still Feel? (Original Mix)

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 6:55pm

Kris Trindl, known to many as Rain Man, has been mostly quiet on the music front for the first half of 2017. Aside from releasing a remix of Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson‘s “Just Hold On,” the Dim Mak-signed producer has been working on new music, like his latest single with MAX, “Do You Still Feel?”

“Do You Still Feel?” shows a lighter side of the artist’s production abilities. The track leans into the pop side of electronic music, with catchy vocals from MAX and flawless production from Rain Man.

The former Krewella front man had a successful 2016, with his track “Bring Back The Summer” racking up more than 3 million plays to date on SoundCloud. The track had a light summer feel to it, as “Do You Still Feel?” does. This latest release, having a similar feel, should be a hit for the duo, too.

“I’m excited to finally share ‘Do You Still Feel’ with the world,” Trindl told Billboard. “I first started the beat with an acoustic guitar and my laptop in an Airbnb during Miami Music Week 2016. The track reminds me of all of the incredible moments I’ve had over the last year touring, performing, and creating music with so many amazing people.”

Icona Pop – GIRLS GIRLS (Original Mix)

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 6:48pm

Swedish duo Icona Pop has long been a fierce pop force to be reckoned with. They went light on the singles for the majority of 2017 in the wake of “Brightside,” but have returned for the summer armed with one of their catchiest to date.

Said to be co-written by Tove Lo, “GIRLS GIRLS” is a fun, fist-pump-friendly vocal track that puts issues of equality and womanhood into the spotlight without getting too serious. Playing with subtle future house influences whilst keeping things as hooky as one would expect from the TEN Music Group act, “GIRLS GIRLS” proves a single every bit worth the wait from an act always welcomed within the dance/pop remits.

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 6:07pm

Feenixpawl have announced their entry into the Armada family in style with the release of a sunny new single. The track, “Love Me For Life” celebrates their successful Australia-to-LA imprint Eclypse’s new home in Armada’s fleet of dance music juggernauts.

“We are extremely happy to be able to bring Eclypse Records over to the Armada family,” said Australian producers Aden Forte and Josh Soon of Feenixpawl.

“To be able to collaborate with one of the biggest and best dance labels in the world has been amazing, and we are so excited about the new music we’ve been working on. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Eclypse and for Feenixpawl, and we truly believe that working with Armada will only help us continue to grow and expand as artists and as a label.”

The new celebratory track is a summery EDM jam with bittersweet retro vibes and calypso vocals. Fans can be sure there’s more where that came from now that the duo are backed by Armada’s prolific support.

Instagram Stories Brings In 250M Active Users, Drastically Leading Snapchat

Your EDM - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 3:49pm

Facebook-owned Instagram Stories are absolutely crushing Snapchat, pulling ahead of the original disappearing photo/video app in terms of active users…

When you attend a music festival or concert, chances are you pull out your phone at some point to capture the moment and share on your 24-hour story. If you choose Instagram Stories over Snapchat, you’re joining the 250 million daily active users, compared to that of the latter’s 166 million.

“Our user growth for stories is actually coming at the explosive growth for Instagram overall,” Facebook’s global head of sales Carolyn Everson told CNBC. “Instagram is now at 700 million people globally.”

She also revealed 1/3 of the most viewed stories are businesses and advertisers using Instagram Stories. So, it wouldn’t be surprising if more artists, music festivals, media outlets, and other facets of the entertainment/music industry migrate to Instagram Stories.

Which app do you prefer?

New Marshmello x Demi Lovato Song “Love Don’t Let Me Go” Expected Soon [DETAILS]

Your EDM - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 3:49pm

Marshmello and pop star Demi Lovato have hit the studio together for a brand new song “Love Don’t Let Me Go!”

The song, registered to ASCAP, is written by Marshmello, Louis Bell, Brian Lee, Ali Tamposi, and Andrew Watt — some of the same hit-making team behind the hit EDM/pop songs “Let Me Love You” by DJ Snake featuring Justin Bieber, and “It Ain’t Me” by Kygo featuring Selena Gomez.

This collaboration couldn’t be more anticipated by both the DJ/producer’s “Mello Gang,” and Demi’s hardcore fan base, “Lovatics!”

No word on official release date yet, but we’ll keep you updated.

Demi Lovato was recently featured in a new track by Jax Jones, a dancehall banger that is absolutely addictive. As a pop singer, she’s already well familiar with the dance music culture, so we can’t wait to see what she comes up with for her Marshmello collaboration.

Spotify Rolls Out Paid Placements For Labels On Certain Playlists

Your EDM - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 2:49pm

If you’re an avid Spotify user it’s a good chance that it’s because you’ve fallen in love with some of their thousands of Spotify-curated playlists. A lot of these major playlists have been staples for music labels looking to push records, New Music Friday, ElectroNOW, Today’s Top Hits just to name a few. While the decision-making process behind these playlists has almost always been based on either subjective taste or objective data, Spotify is now rolling out a feature that might allow for labels to pay for placements in top playlists.

At the moment, the service is still only on a trial basis for free users – meaning that any premium subscribers would not be effective. Users can, however, opt out of the trial. Sponsored songs won’t have any flashy banners pointing out that they’re paid placements, but instead Spotify aims to target users “whose listening habits match with the advertised track.”

This brings up an interesting question of ‘payola’ which some would say is a practice as old as the music industry itself and thus bound to catch up to modern technology in some way shape or form. Traditionally, payola has manifested itself as illegal practice of record labels paying radio stations to play out records from their artists as ‘regular’ airplay and not ‘sponsored’ airplay. It’s since manifested itself to artists and labels paying bloggers to write about their tracks. Spotify opening up the ability for select labels to plug records into playlists without advertising them as ‘sponsored’ or ‘paid’ is a risky business decision that seems to see them skirting closer to the edge of what’s acceptable promotion and what is ‘payola.’

You could see how independent artists might find this infuriating. Stay tuned to see how this develops moving forward.

Pasquale Rotella: “I’ll announce the change to EDC LV soon.”

Your EDM - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 2:25pm

EDC Las Vegas was last week. Electric Forest is still ongoing, but it looks like Insomniac Events’ Pasquale Rotella isn’t taking any breaks. He just announced that he was preparing to roll out changes to EDC Las Vegas while live-streaming on Instagram from Electric Forest.

This year, Insomniac announced a few changes to the shuttle system by banning all outside companies, which unfortunately was one of the main pain points for attendees. It’s also worth noting that for the first time in ‘many years,’ EDC Las Vegas failed to sell out. This was despite high attendance figures in line with the last few years and several new rap acts billed for the first time ever with Metro Boomin’ and DJ Khaled taking on BassPod and Cosmic Meadows respectively.

Could both things be the catalyst for some changes? Who knows. But either way, it looks like Pasquale’s been scheming and we can’t wait to hear what he’s got planned for us.

Check Out UCLA Graduate’s Kelley Nguyen Gorgeous Redesigned SoundCloud iOS App

Your EDM - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 2:03pm

SoundCloud has quite a few faults whether you’re a regular fan, industry professional, or artist; but one of their biggest gripes so far has to be their SoundCloud mobile app. While I can’t speak for Android users, as an iOS user of the SoundCloud app I can definitely attest to the issues of the platform ranging from a lack of stats, the weird iTunes portal bug, or even just the poorly designed UI. Compared with the Spotify app, or even Apple Music, the SoundCloud app’s search design and functionality are frankly lagging miles behind.

Thankfully, UCLA graduate Kelley Nguyen has taken it upon herself to give us a sleek overhaul of the iOS mobile app’s UI while simultaneously reimagining and redesigning the entire app from scratch. From market research on the size of the global recorded music industry to interviewing people on how the app could be improved to a thorough analysis of the Spotify and Apple Music mobile apps, it’s clear that Kelley did more than ‘redesign the app.’ In essence, she completely rethought SoundCloud’s entire existence within the music industry ecosystem.

Seeing as she went through a very thorough process while explaining her rationale for even attempting something like this we encourage you to read through her post for the full redesign, meanwhile we’ve highlighted some of our favourite changes below.

For starters, she completely redesigned profiles to now include full bios, follower numbers, social links and more. Notice how you can easily slide up or down for more information plus the cleaner function bar at the bottom of the app.

Some more changes include a vastly improved redesign of the SoundCloud waveform when a record is playing, plus more obvious pause, share, like, add to playlist buttons etc.

The almighty search function has also been updated to optimize results and divide based on album, artist, song-name etc.

Keep in mind there are just some of the few things that Kelley’s changed so be sure to read her full post for more and hopefully we get to see this rolled out one day!

Tesla is developing a music streaming service

Dancing Astronaut - Sun, 06/25/2017 - 1:46pm

Mercurial tech baron and founder of Tesla, Elon Musk is rumored to be working on a new music streaming platform, to be run specifically on Tesla vehicles in the near future—possibly as early as the new Model 3, which rolls out next month.

Oddly enough, rather that collaborating with existing streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, each of which boast millions of monthly subscribers, Musk seems dead set on perfecting a proprietary software for Tesla.

In the words of a Tesla Spokesperson, “We believe it’s important to have an exceptional in-car experience so our customers can listen to the music they want from whatever source they choose. Our goal is to simply achieve maximum happiness for our customers.”

All that remains to be seen if this ambitious project materializes into a concrete feature.

Austrian Duo Camo & Krooked Drop Fourth Album, “Mosaik”

Your EDM - Sat, 06/24/2017 - 8:52pm

The fourth studio album from Austrian duo Camo & Krooked, Mosaik, is out today via RAM Records. Fans have been waiting for this one for a while. And by a while, I mean at least the last couple of years… C&K first teased that the album was under production in February of 2015.

Mosaik comes as the next series in the evolution of Camo & Krooked’s sound. Their first two albums, Above & Beyond and Cross The Line, both featured a more traditional drum & bass sound, though even Cross The Line had started to stray a bit. It wasn’t until their previous album Zeitgeist that C&K’s experimental side began to shine through. And as you might expect, fans were heavily divided over the album.

Mosaik is much like Zeitgeist in its desire to experiment and play with different sounds, though there are still some elements of traditional drum & bass present in tracks like “Witchdoctor” and “Mandala” with Mefjus. But overall, the album is much softer and slower than even liquid might be.

That isn’t to say that the album isn’t worth your time, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Mosaik is one of the most cohesive albums of the year so far. Though the album ebbs and flows (at times ebbing perhaps too far), the connection from track to track is undeniable and creates a unique atmosphere that persists throughout the duration of the album.

As mentioned before, there are standouts. “Witchdoctor” and “Mandala” among them, the standouts tend to be closer to typical drum & bass than the album’s more experimental counterparts. By placing these key tracks toward the beginning, middle, and end, they’re keeping core listeners engaged and still forcing you on.

Listen to Mosaik by Camo & Krooked below.

Nero’s Alana Watson and Dan Stephens are having a baby

Dancing Astronaut - Sat, 06/24/2017 - 7:58pm

Following an extended period of silence, Nero have begun to re-emerge in the limelight over the past few weeks. Earlier in June, band member Joseph Ray released his first single under his solo project, a haunting collaboration with rising artist Meli, titled “Inside.”  On Thursday, June 22, the Nero made news again when ZHU teased a tantalizing collaboration with the group, “Dreamz.”

However, the biggest news for the trio came in a development outside of the studio, when, on Wednesday, they posted an ultrasound picture revealing that Alana Watson would be having a baby. In their announcement, Nero stated that, while their singer would be taking leave from live performances for the remainder of the year, she is “continuing to work in the studio and will be back on tour in 2018.” Bandmate Dan Stephens, who is married to Watson, will continue to tour alongside Ray.
