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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Unclear how this will effect Bonnaroo + more yet. pic.twitter.com/E4CCjzmprr

Shallows – Matter (BLU J remix)

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

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

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.

Flux Pavilion – Cut Me Out (JayKode Remix) [Free Download]

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 3:36pm

The latest release from Flux Pavilion, a double header EP with “Pull the Trigger” feat. Cammie Robinson and “Cut Me Out” feat. Turin Brakes, despite gaining hundreds of thousands of plays, seemingly slipped under the radar of many. However, Jaykode has put a spin on “Cut Me Out” that proves to be very memorable.

Probably my favorite part of the remix is the addition of the piano and strings, noticeably absent from the original. It shows that kind of foresight and creativity beyond “I’m going to play with the synths and see what happens,” and goes to “I’m going to make this track mine.”

The drop is 100% different from the original, which I find enthralling and engaging; who wants to listen to the same track twice? And Jaykode has always occupied this space of creative blending of future sounds and trap, so are we really surprised it’s awesome?

This one’s available as a free download, so add it to your library now and listen below!

Dreamscape Festival Is One Not To Miss In 2017

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 2:22pm

What if a music festival didn’t have headliners? And I don’t mean the Insomniac happy-go-lucky “you’re all headliners!” shtick. I mean, what if there were no A-List artists fighting over top billing, and all the artists on the lineup helped to rise each other up? You’d be looking at the lineup for Dreamscape Festival.

While yes, technically, a few artists receive top billing, their status in the scene isn’t significantly higher than those below them. With Keys N Krates, Destructo, Troyboi, Chris Lake, Autograf, Ekali, Barely Alive, Lumberjack, SunSquabi, Virtual Riot, Bixel Boys, Dubloadz, Infuze, and many more on the same lineup, the line for “headliner” becomes increasingly blurred. Spreading across the musical spectrum from future, to house, to the heaviest of bass and trap, Dreamscape Festival has more than enough for any music lover, adventurer, and explorer.

Hosted each year by local festival organizer BADVSS RAVES, and with the addition of Nü Androids for their first festival ever, this year’s event promises to be the best yet with an edgy lineup, three stages, fantasy & dream decorations, daily pool parties, VIP lounge with artist meet & greets and secret sets, Decompression Lounge with yoga and meditation, live actors, themed nights, and plenty more activities.

For a camping festival, it’s also absurdly affordable at only $169 + tax for a three-day camping and music festival experience. Tickets are still available for the festival happening Thursday, June 1st – Sunday, June 4th, claim them here!

EDM Industry Continues To Grow, Valued At $7.4 Billion This Year

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 1:59pm

The last time that IMS released numbers on the growth of the EDM industry, it was slowing down. Still growing — just a bit slower. That trend continued in the past year, growing from $7.1bn to $7.4bn, constituting a 3% growth. This actually represented a 0.5% decrease in growth rate compared to last year.

These stats were given in a new IMS Business Report by Kevin Watson, released to coincide with International Music Summit Ibiza. The report shows that a large part of the upward trend is a steady increase in streaming subscriptions, up 65% overall, but led primarily by dance music.

Obviously, streaming services like Spotify have been leading the charge, now commanding 12 billion streams in electronic genres alone. However, live events can also claim some responsibility, as millennials are 40% more likely to attend a DJ club event (in the US).

The artists themselves are having bull years as well, with Diplo and Zedd each enjoying a 4% increase in earnings year on year. They were also both featured on Forbes’ electronic cash kings list in 2016. The king of that list, Calvin Harris, actually experienced a 5% drop in income to $63 million… but at that point, none of your fans are really crying foul.

On the social media side of things, Instagram now reigns king. According to the report, “the most popular DJs are growing their Instagram followers 11 times faster than on Facebook.” For instance, The Chainsmokers grew their Instagram followers by 45% from March to May 2017, peaking at 3.8 million. Their Twitter also grew 40%.

Martin Garrix has also experienced a follower boom with a 17% rise in Instagram followers and an 18% boost in YouTube subscribers.

IMS Ibiza 2017 has just started, and will continue over the next three days. Expect more new and interesting information about electronic music culture to emerge as time goes on.

Zedd & Alessia Cara Perform Stay On The Voice Season Finale

Wed, 05/24/2017 - 1:09pm

Zedd & Alessia Cara’s “Stay” has surely become a hit by all metrics. If there was ever any doubt about it, the two were invited to perform the single on this year’s season finale of The Voice on NBC.

Armed with some MIDI controllers, keyboards, microphones, and an accompanying drummer, the two put on an absolutely electric performance. Some nice little additions like fireworks behind the stage setup and Alessia moving into the crowd for the final chorus made the show that much more enjoyable.

Other guest performers on the finale included Miley Cyrus, Rascal Flatts, Little Big Town, CeeLo Green, and Gladys Knight.

The UK’s First-Ever Vinyl Festival Set to Take Place at Beloved New Venue

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 2:58pm

Vinyl has made a huge comback the past decade, with music lovers craving the medium’s physical releases, sound quality and collectible nature. It comes as no surprise that an entire festival dedicated to vinyl will soon debut in the United Kingdom, but it is a bit of a surprise that this upcoming festival will mark the UK’s first-ever vinyl festival.

Simply titled The Vinyl Festival, the festival will take place on September 23-24 at beloved, new venue Printworks, which has hosted the likes of Gorillaz, Ben Klock, and others since its opening this past January. Hosted and organized by the Long Live Vinyl publication, the festival will include appearances by the BBC‘s very own Huey Morgan and Steve Lamacq, Charlatans‘ lead singer Tim Burgess and Virgin Radio‘s Breakfast Show host Edith Bowman, who will all be DJing b2b and participating in Q&A panels. Beyond the performances, attendees will be able to peruse and purchase vinyl from 100 shops, survey audio technology and get their own vinyl appraised by experts.

While U.S. vinyl enthusiasts will have to wait for an American version, the British and greater Europeans should enjoy this new concept of a festival.

According to FACT, Gary Walker, the editor of Long Live Vinyl, whose publisher is organizing the event, has emphasized the The Vinyl Festival’s role in celebrating “the very best of the format we all love.”

“It’s exactly what our readers have been crying out for,” he said.

At Least Six UK Music Fests Will Allow Drug Testing this Year

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 2:57pm

In an effort to help festival-goers party more safely, six UK music fests are allowing drug testing at their events this year.

Joining the support of local police forces, Reading and Leeds Festivals and other music events are taking action after a number of drug-related deaths.

Melvin Benn from Festival Republic, who works Latitude, V Festival, Wireless and other events for Live Nation, expects drug testing to be allowed on site “between six and ten festivals this year.”

Testing tents will tell people exactly what drugs they are dealing with, thanks to an organization called The Loop — it’s founder stated: “It’s really exciting that police are prioritizing health and safety over criminal justice at festivals.”

Armin van Buuren to Remove all UR Branding from Ibiza Shows Following Plagiarism Claim

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 2:51pm

Armin van Buuren‘s Ibiza party series will remove all UR branding moving forward, following a plagiarism dispute with Underground Resistance, a well known Detroit techno collective.

Despite the legendary DJ’s original statement, declaring he would keep UR branding on his event, but adjust the symbol — Resident Advisor reports the summer shows will continue to only work under the name Universal Religion. All flyers and logos are expected to change ASAP to honor the complaint.

Armin van Buuren’s original statement read:

“I would like to start off by saying how unfortunate and unpleasant this situation is for everyone involved. My team, the team of Hï/Ushuaïa and myself were not aware of the similarities between our logo and the logo of Underground Resistance. Originally, UR – the name of the new event through which I’ll perform in Ibiza every week – is derived from Universal Religion, an older but nonetheless known Armin van Buuren concept. The logo, which consists of a custom-made font and frame, was designed to conform with the Armin van Buuren brand. After careful deliberation, my team, the team of Hï/Ushuaïa and myself have decided to keep the name UR as it is and to adjust the symbol. I trust that media, fans and Underground Resistance will be able to understand this decision.”

The Universal Religion nightclub residency is set to run for 13 weeks over the summer at Hï Ibiza.

Kygo and Ellie Goulding Release Fiery “First Time” Music Video [WATCH]

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 2:50pm

Kygo and Ellie Goulding have released a fiery music video for their hot, summer single “First Time”!

As with any music video — and song for that matter — it can be interpreted in a number of ways. While we thought that “First Time” made for the perfect boy-meets-girl scenario, the producer/singer duo took it in an extremely different direction.

As some YouTubers have speculated, Ellie and Kygo portray extraordinarily close siblings that miss out on growing up together when the sister passes. The brother experiences some otherworldly talents as the years go by, and ultimately dies in hopes of joining his sister in the afterlife. But, again, their paths just barely cross.

It’s definitely an interesting take on the beautifully nostalgic song! Watch “First Time” right here!

Nearly 200 Arrested At This Year’s Hangout Music Festival

Tue, 05/23/2017 - 1:33pm

Apparently DJ Snake’s absence from Hangout caused a sort of ripple effect… (Get it? Cuz it’s on the beach?)

This year, around 170 people were arrested at or around the festival; this is a huge increase from last year’s arrest number of just 61, which is still fairly high.

According to local news WKRG, “a man walked into the Surf Style store on the festival grounds and took three thousand dollars worth of Oakley sunglasses.” Most of the glasses have been recovered and the man was arrested.

The Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office arrested around 100. The majority of those for drugs. Gulf Shores police locked up 71. No further information was given.

Hangout Fest took place in Gulf Shores, AL, and while none of the festivities took place in neighboring Orange Beach, the area’s police department also released their arrest numbers, reports AL.

The Orange Beach Police Department reported that they had 15 arrest and 21 total charges during the three day event.  OBPD Spokesman Steve Brown also gave a breakdown of the total charge listed below:

  • Minor in Possession: 4
  • Public Intoxication: 4
  • Boating Under the Influence: 2
  • Driving Under the Influence: 1
  • Assault: 1
  • Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance: 3
  • Possession of Drug Paraphernalia: 2
  • Unlawful Possession of First-Degree Marijuana: 1
  • Trafficking: 1
  • Domestic Violence: 1
  • Resisting Arrest: 1
