Rain & Mud Delayed Entry Into Electric Forest On Friday

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 8:40pm

Electric Forest officially opened its festival doors yesterday with headlining acts from Above & Beyond, Lotus and more, but Friday’s entry was delayed for a few hours by rain and mud. Five inches of rain between the early hours of Thursday and Friday pushed back entry from noon to 3pm local time, as festival-goers were alerted by the Electric Forest app.

“Weather events can, of course, be part of any outdoor festival experience,” festival organizers said in an emailed statement. “Electric Forest operations and production teams are well prepared to work with challenges that heavy rain can bring to the festival site.

“Overnight and this morning crews have been working tirelessly to drain water, repair grounds and prepare the venue to open for a fantastic schedule on day 2 of Electric Forest.”

Thursday’s event was also slightly delayed, by less than an hour.

Tonight’s headliners include Nero, Odesza, Tycho and others.

Slander Drops New Single “Superhuman” On Monstercat

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 8:00pm

7This is quite a strange day for trap artists, isn’t it? Flosstradamus just dropped his first new original as a solo artist and it’s a future bass/pop single; also, trap duo Slander have released their new song “Superhuman” with Eric Leva… of course, based on this track, I guess calling them a “trap duo” would no longer be totally accurate.

“Superhuman” is Slander’s latest single, out on Monstercat, and relies on a strong vocal performance from featured artist Eric Leva, as well as some melodic vocal chops and sweeping future bass chords. It’s definitely not the most original combination of sounds, but then again, that’s only half of what constitutes making a song. When speaking of the arrangement in “Superhuman,” we obviously get something super unique that calls to the emotions of listeners.

Check out their new single below.

Slander and NGHTMRE have just announced a massive Gud Vibrations show for the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino. Get the details here.

Sources: Elon Musk Considers Starting Streaming Service

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 6:24pm

Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music executives should watch their backs because there’s yet another tech billionaire looking to move into the music streaming game. Tesla founder and tech mogul Elon Musk is no stranger to starting new businesses in various industries but this looks to be first his foray in music.

Sources close to tech blog Recode say that Musk has already spoken with the majors regarding licensing deals for his potential music streaming service. Pricing is also supposed to vary in tiers similar while the service has been described as a “Pandora-like web radio offering.”

Sources at Tesla cite customer happiness as the main reason why they’re not just partnering with existing streaming services.

“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,” a Tesla spokesperson said. “Our goal is to simply achieve maximum happiness for our customers.”

Clearly it will be an uphill battle, but with how dedicated and loyal Tesla customers are, we don’t see it as a huge stretch that at least a few tens of thousands would be willing to make the switch. Spotify has 50 million subscribers.

Zedd’s own brand of headphones, DoubleZero001, went on sale via his dedicated website back in April, but now consumers can purchase the device from all over the world as they’re now available on Amazon.

Zedd said, “I wanted the headphones to sound real and exciting but look sexy, modern and timeless.” 

Mission accomplished.

Calvin Harris & DJ Khaled Collaboration Revealed as Khaled Releases New Album

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 6:21pm

Who knew the viral story out of EDC Vegas this past weekend would be DJ Khaled‘s controversial performance? While technical issues marred his set and many fans left with a sour taste in their mouths, DJ Khaled’s stock remains high as his new album Grateful releases today.

The album brings a star-studded cast to the table, one of whom happens to be an EDM icon: Calvin Harris. Calvin Harris features on the track “Don’t Quit” along with Travis Scott and Jeremih, a mid-album soiree seemingly destined for the poolside. The track opens with Khaled proclaiming “Ayy yo Calvin Harris, they ain’t see this one coming,” although the song sounds straights out of Harris’ recent, hip-hop-flavored output.

Travis Scott leads the track by singing the first few verses and the chorus, with Jeremih coming in during the latter half of the track and Khaled dispersing his ad-libs throughout. Harris’ summery production provides a perfect backdrop for Scott and Jeremih, and hints at what’s to come from his new album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which drops in a week on June 30. Scott features on Harris’ upcoming album as well, so be ready to hear more from the now-frequent collaborators.

Listen to DJ Khaled’s “Don’t Quit” with Calvin Harris, Travis Scott and Jeremih below:

Seven Lions Drops Secret Psytrance Set At EDC As DJ Sven Again

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 5:18pm

In case you missed it, EDC Las Vegas was last weekend and in typical EDC fashion many of the DJs brought out high-profile guests or even played surprise sets across the festival grounds. Seven Lions was one of those DJs who got into the fun playing a surprise psytrance set under secret alias DJ Sven.

In case you forgot, Seven Lions actually did same thing last year as DJ Sven on the Kalliope art car, but this year he opted for the Parliament Art Car with Kalliope occupied by their own surprise performance – Kaskade’s two-hour sunrise set. While there’s no footage just yet, check out this clip from DJ Sven’s performance last year!

Your EDM Premiere: Uzzi & Hami – Go Hard [40oz Cult]

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 5:00pm

If this isn’t one of the bigger dubstep releases of 2017, I’ll be flabbergasted. HAMi and Uzzi certainly “Go Hard” on this latest single, a brilliant blend of that new riddim sound and classic dubstep wobbles. Not to mention, the drums hit hard as f*ck, the rhythm is perfectly bouncy for whatever dance move you wanna throw.

High kicks in the middle of the pit? Go for it.
Full body convulsions? Have fun!
Headbanging on the front row? Absolutely.

HAMi runs the 40oz Cult collective, one of the finest purveyors of future dubstep stars in the scene, so you already know this goes hard. Check it out below.

Your EDM Premiere: Dance Legend Tiësto Just Co-Write Banjo Homme and O.A.R.’s Latest Summer Folk House Anthem

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 4:01pm

Nashville has always been a global hub for uniting the most elite talents across the songwriting and production community, so it’s not a far leap to think that Tiësto might randomly jump straight into the co-writing sessions on the project, which is exactly what happened here…

Today at Your EDM, we are very excited to have the special privilege of premiering a co-writing unification of three musical greats: Banjo Homme, a folk house producer also known as Nathan Chapman (a pinnacle force behind the ever-excelling career of Taylor Swift), jam band veterans O.A.R, and of course a co-writing credit from none other than the legendary DJ/producer, Tiësto.

This debut single from Banjo Homme, ‘Golden Age’, brings together an ensemble of melodic chord progressions, upbeat vocal harmonies and oozes the authentic soul of Nashville songwriting.

Commenting on the production process of this summer-inspired track Banjo Homme states,

“The goal was always to combine the authenticity and expertise of Nashville songwriting with its roots in raw, acoustic and intricate melodies, together with today’s modern, contemporary sound of dance music.”

Lose yourself in the nostalgia-inspired, uplifting melodies and intricate vocal harmonies of ‘Golden Age’.

Dalton John Drops Funky Debut EP ‘Ready To Go’

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 3:51pm

Dalton John might be a new name for a lot of our North American readers, but across the small pond we call the Atlantic the man has been making waves for years now. The French house producer has managed to bridge the gaps between pop, electro, and house seamlessly in the past and he does it once again with Ready To Go EP.

Lead single “Ride” features the funky vocals of Anna Majidson while the subtle yet bouncy production is a perfect example of the ‘sleekness’ that I’ve come to know and love from the genre. “Gettin’ Better” and titular track “Ready To Go” are definitely crafted for the dance floor while final track “Timeless” is perfect for late night listening.

San Holo Drops The Curtain On His Next Single & Holy Sh*t It’s A Hit

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 3:17pm

San Holo just teased his upcoming single in the latest version of his behind the scenes video series The Trip and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Though further details on the single are still to be determined, the clip features a full minute long preview right up to the first drop.

The record starts off with some warm synths and a guitar lead before we’re introduced to some warm male vocals – presumably, those of James Vincent McMorrow judging by the lyrics he tweeted the other day (which San Holo also retweeted).

I think too much
when i think about the future

— JamesVincentMcMorrow (@jamesvmcmorrow) June 21, 2017

The latter half of the video also features a nasty edit of San Holo’s older single “We Rise.” Stream Episode 14 of The Trip below for a recap on his sets at EDC Las Vegas and Bonnaroo plus those two unreleased records.

MANSE & SHAYLEN – “BACK TO YOU” Is Our Friday Jam

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 2:49pm

Sometimes the best music is that of the rising star. The established artist is great, don’t get us wrong, but there is a magic around someone who is just starting to thrive. Coming out on Thrive Music (no pun intended), Manse has taken the dance music scene by storm with over 10 million combined streams and support from EDM tastemakers like Hardwell and Axwell Λ Ingrosso; Manse does not fall short of captivating.

The 23 year old Swedish producer is undeniably on the rise, with previous releases on Armada, Revealed, and Protocol. Manse teams up with Thrive for his latest single ‘Back To You’.

The song is filled with big piano chords and fierce synths cascading into a pop-infused drop. With Shaylen’s vocals fitting seamlessly into Manse’s crisp production style, ‘Back To You’ makes for a perfectly satisfying summer tune.

Watch Porter Robinson’s Full Set From EDC Las Vegas 2017

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 2:16pm

Of all the artists who could benefit from a bigger LED screen at a festival, Porter Robinson is probably at the top of that list. For all of the wonderment of his Worlds show, it is augmented ten fold by a more immersive visual experience and so EDC did the right thing and put him on the stage with the biggest screen this year, cosmicMEADOW.

Nestled against the bleachers at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, tens of thousands of fans were treated to an experience like no other. Porter has been playing his Worlds set since the release of his album in 2014 – and while, yes, that may seem like a long time to play essentially the same set, it really only gets better with age. Just ask Nero…

Porter played Saturday night at the festival. Check it out below. Full tracklist and time stamps can be found in the video description.

Your EDM Premiere: Justin Jay – Can’t Hang

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 2:08pm

Calling all deep house fans, Justin Jay has returned with new music. It’s been a year since the man’s last EP, Make You Mine, or any releases for that matter, but he’s finally back with a house banger that’s sure to set any dance floors alight.

The first thing that really drew me to this record was the fact that Justin himself sings over it, vocoder and all. The first record he’s ever sung and written on to be precise. The record also draws heavily from soul and funk making “Can’t Hang” a quintessential record for any 90s house fans to get to know.

Stream the record below which comes via Justin Jay’s label Fantastic Voyage.

Flume & Sophie Produce “Yeah Right” Off Vince Staples’ New Album, Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Kučka

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 1:35pm

Vince Staples releases his sophomore album Big Fish Theory today, including a track entitled “Yeah Right,” featuring heavyweights Kendrick Lamar and Kučka, as well as production from sound design visionaries Flume and SOPHIE.

Simply put, this is easily one of the best collabs of the year, even taking into consideration the news of Zhu x Nero yesterday and all of the combinations on the forthcoming Calvin Harris album next Friday. As far as can be told, Flume and SOPHIE have never had a true collaboration together, but after hearing the pairing on “Yeah Right” we really need one. And as for Kučka’s contribution on the track, it doesn’t really seem to mesh well with the rest of the track, book-ended by verses by Lamar and Staples – it might be the only facet of the track preventing it from being damn near perfect.

The production, as already mentioned, is heavy and fat, putting a lot of weight on the subs and melody. The vocal melody provided by Staples in the background works magnificently in moving the track forward and Lamar’s contribution is equally fire.

Listen to to “Yeah Right” below.

Staples’ new album Big Fish Theory is out today.

KVR Drops New Music Video For “Never Gonna Be” With Kaíva

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 1:24pm

Rising Dutch star KVR might only be 17 years old, but he’s already signed to a major deal subsidiary and putting out heaters. Could he be just the next young Dutch prodigy in a long line of them? Judging by the success of his first original single “Never Gonna Be” you might be inclined to think so.

Now, the official music video for the release has come out which gives the warm summer song a whimsical visual piece that’s just as easygoing and laid back as the single. The official video was filmed in Iceland home to featured vocalist Kaíva and showcases the country’s rough nature and landscape through a road-trip intertwined with a love triangle.

AREA21’s “We Did It” Finally Sees Official Release

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 12:56pm

Since it was debuted by Martin Garrix at his headlining Ultra set last year, fans have been clamoring for “We Did It” by his second project, AREA21. Today, finally, the track is officially available to stream.

The track is characterized by its melodic vocal chops and laidback melody, along with Maejor’s sonically cohesive vocals. The future bass vibe is also quite strong; and despite the track being just under 3 minutes long, it still manages to feel like a full track as, quite literally, the first drop only comes in after half of the song has elapsed.

“We Did It” is released via Garrix’s own STMPD RCRDS. Listen below.

Sistek – Pitfalls ft. Tudo & Amy J. Pryce

Fri, 06/23/2017 - 10:14am

Sistek is sure to be a producer you keep on all your playlists. The Chilean producer has already gained the attention of Kobalt and has been releasing tropical house influenced hits for the past two years. His newest single “Pitfalls” features the beautiful vocals of Tudo and Amy J. Pryce to really hook you into this track.

Starting with some vocal chops and subtle chords, we are quickly drawn in with Tudo’s voice. The track tells of the yearning that a man has for his lover and his hopes that his pitfalls can be forgiven. The track’s drop is a perfectly chilled house vibe, one that is iconic of Sistek’s sound. The second verse features the vocals of Amy J. Pryce giving her take on the love she feels for the man.

Take a listen to the love story below:

Your EDM Premiere: Rez – New World Order

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 9:44pm

No, not Rezz, Rez. This St. Louis-based producer has only been making tracks for about three years according to his Soundcloud, but he’s already released his unique brand of chill yet heavy halftime and dubstep on UK labels like Uprise Audio, Silent Motion and Prime Audio. His first stateside EP comes from the also new Dub Sector, also based out of St. Louis.

The Resistance EP releases tomorrow, June 23, and contains four slow, grinding but eternally heavy halftime tracks of a unique style not seen yet in bass music under 150 bpm. “New World Order”, the EP’s closing track, is possibly the slowest and grindiest of all the tracks, and it is definitely halftime rather than dubstep; no debate needed. It may even be a slower tempo than halftime. This track has an oddly dystopian feel, which may be why Rez named as he did. The bass is sparse but about as low-pitched as a bassline can go while still being recognizable to the human ear.

The drums on “New World Order” are surprisngly mostly created via the very digital sounding snare/high hat combination, with a lone kick at the end of every bar. It’s interesting to hear a snare-driven track at this super-low tempo, and ostensibly this phenomenon is what gives the track it’s chill, funky flavor in the face of the low, rumbling bass and dark, metallic sampling. If that wasn’t enough surprises drums-wise, just past the halfway mark a rolling loop of amens comes in under the snares, the spread-out kicks and the evil-sounding doom bass. This is not an amen break, mind you, but a loop of amens which roll into each other and continue for almost a full minute. The track then continues on its dystpioan, darkness-slowly-eating-humanity-style path before ending with a long draw of the bass. It’s a great track with which to sit in a dark room and contemplate the emptiness of life, and that suits many bassheads just fine.

The Resistance EP drops on June 23 on Dub Sector records, and can be pre-ordered by clicking here.

Goldie Accidentally Reveals That Banksy Is Supposedly The Lead Singer of Massive Attack

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 9:15pm

Since Banksy first popped up with his provocative street art twenty years ago the world has long waited for the mysterious identity of this artistic caped crusader. Yesterday, thanks to a major gaffe by Goldie, it looks like the cat’s out of the bag – Banksy is actually Robert Del Naja the lead singer of Massive Attack.

Check out Goldie’s exact quote from an on-air interview with Scroobius Pip below and we’ll go from there.

Give me a bubble letter and put it on a T-shirt and write
“Banksy” on it and we’re sorted. We can sell it now. No disrespect to Robert, I think he is a brilliant artist. I think he has flipped the world of art over.

While he never actually referred to who Robert really is fans and media alike believe he’s referring to Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack who’s been suspected of being Banksy in the past. Robert actually has an artistic side having spent some time doing graffiti across the UK in the 80s in similar circles with ironically, Goldie. It’s also worth noting that Goldie caught his error and quickly switched the topic to jazz music but unfortunately for him the internet never forgets.

Journalist Craig Williams conducted a thorough investigation into Banksy before fingering Robert Del Naja as the leader of Banksy which he dubbed “a team of street artists,” rather than one single artist, last year. Robert Del Naja has since denied rumors that he is Banksy, or at the very least a member.
