Your EDM Premiere: Doctrine – Thunder on RAM Records

Mon, 05/22/2017 - 12:51pm

Doctrine is a drum and bass producer out of Belgium with whom most heads should be familiar by now. He began his project in 2011, and he garnered interest almost instantly from the likes of Invisible Recordings, Blackout, Bad Taste and now RAM.

“Thunder” is Doctrine’s newest release on RAM. Part of the RAM25 series, “Thunder” is the b-side of “Panopticon”, a track released earlier this month. “Thunder” is both heavier and techier than “Panopticon”, but also contains a surprising full vocal track from Shae Jacobs. The techy, dark jump up paired with Jacobs’ pop/grime vocals makes “Thunder” a dancefloor banger which also has something for his core group of neuro fans.

The “Pantopicon”/”Thunder” single is available now on digital format on the RAM website, with a vinyl release forthcoming.

Slushii Clears The Air About Ridding Social Media, Assures Followers He’s “Doing Better Now”

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 9:16pm

After deleting all but one of his tweets yesterday, Slushii cleared the air about what’s going on…

Turns out, he’s ridding himself of social media apps, which is something we can all probably afford to cut back on, to be honest. Prior to today, his only remaining tweet said:

Gonna go outside now.

— slushii (@SlushiiMusic) May 20, 2017

Offering up further explanation, Slushii mentioned something “clicked” for him and he simply wants to experience things and live his life. The bass music producer also mentioned he’s recently experienced depression, which doesn’t discriminate no matter how successful or happy you may be.

Our thoughts go out to you, Slushii… Hopefully less time on social media means more time for music! We can’t wait to hear it!

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 6:17pm

Last night in Colorado, many artists took the stage at Red Rocks for the annual Global Dub festival. Crizzly, Wilkinson and Spag Heddy joined co-headliners Flux Pavilion and Illenium for an unforgettable night at one of the greatest venues in the world.

During his set, Illenium dropped some unreleased music and also revealed some pretty big news.

First off, it’s been confirmed: Illenium is dropping his sophomore album this summer! We named his debut album Ashes#9 album of 2016 our , so we can only hope that the follow up is just as impressive.

Secondly, Illenium also announced one of his biggest headlining shows of his career at 1st Bank Center in Denver on November 9th.

As we look forward to both of those awesome moments, check out a video of his set from last night captured by our own Lucas Sachs. Enjoy.

Skrillex Debuts New Kendrick Lamar Remix At FORM Arcosanti

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 5:28pm

In its fourth year, FORM Arcosanti has become a sort of mecca for ravers because of its chill atmosphere and policy of openness; of course, repeated performances from Skrillex, who has become a staunch supporter of the event, doesn’t hurt either.

This year, the festival opened up to more people and while the experience for some might have been tainted, it’s not inaccurate to say that FORM continues to be one of the more transformative events during festival season.

As Skrillex spun during his set this year, one fan captured a video of him dropping an unreleased remix of Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble.” It’s not confirmed to be his remix, but based on the production and the actions of Skrillex’s friends around him when he started up the track, chances are good.

DJ Snake Cancels Set At Major Festival & Deletes His Twitter and Instagram

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 4:17pm

DJ Snake has just hit fans with a massive guessing game as he’s deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts — or more likely, suspended them — as well as cancelling a performance at this weekend’s Hangout Festival in Alabama.

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

Set Time Update: DJ SNAKE has unfortunately cancelled. Lil Yachty will take the stage at 4:45pm at Surf Stage.

Posted by The Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival on Sunday, May 21, 2017

A reddit thread about the cancellation has spurred speculation that DJ Snake has apparently pulled over in Gulf Shores for a DUI and subsequently arrested, but as of publishing, there is no evidence to substantiate such a theory.

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see what’s going on.

Tiësto and KSHMR Confirm “Secrets” Follow-Up [LISTEN]

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 3:31pm

Tiësto and KSHMR’s hit “Secrets” was one of the biggest tracks of 2015. Now, the two legendary producers are back together again with a new release, “Harder,” featuring Talay Riley.

With “Secrets” amassing over 150 million views on YouTube, we can expect this next collaboration to be a hit as well.

“Harder” starts with KSHMR’s signature Indian-influenced vocal chops. Moving forward, the track is driven by a guitar riff and an extremely emotional vocal. Quickly taking a darker turn, the track builds up to a sound that is much more “2017” than “Secrets” is. The chorus, carried by a vocal chop, tropical percussion, and a light bass line, is filled with feelings of euphoria; foreshadowing the summer ahead, and the memories people will make at festivals this coming season.

Stream a cut of “Harder” from Don Diablo‘s “Hexagon Radio” below, and look forward to the official release on May 26!

DJ Snake Reveals The Real Reason Why He’s Always Wearing Sunglasses

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 2:02pm

DJ Snake is notorious for always wearing shades, whether he’s on stage, doing press, or just living his everyday life. Many have speculated reasons why (appearance? eye problems?), but we finally have the real answer.

The world renowned DJ and self-proclaimed “low-key guy” said, “It was because when I became big I suddenly I found myself playing on stage with 200,000 people and that is scary.”

“I remember my manager told me just put on a pair of sun glasses and that should mitigate the panic. So I tried it and it worked. Now people recognize me with my glasses and it helps me feel better.”

DJ Snake revealed it also helps him to travel incognito.

To be honest, we probably wouldn’t even recognize him without them.

Keep doing your thing, DJ Snake, because the sun never sets on a badass!

The Chainsmokers Made 16-Year-Old Nicole’s Dreams Come True by Bringing Her On Stage to Perform “Paris”

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 1:00pm

It’s ok for the fangirl inside of you to be completely jealous right now, because one lucky fan got to experience what it was like to perform with The Chainsmokers on their epic Memories… Do Not Open Tour!

The electronic-pop duo brought up 16-year-old Nicole Starr after she posted on social media asking all of her friends to ask The Chainsmokers if she could come up and perform with them. What she thought was just a crazy dream turned out to be a reality after about 200 of her friends “slid” into The Chainsmokers’ dms.

Nicole is no stranger to the spotlight, as her own YouTube channel “Nicole Starr Music” boasts tons of covers and vlog features. Watch as they perform “Paris” in front of thousands!

Jackal Releases Follow Up EP Single “Summer In Your Arms”

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 10:03am

Jackal continues to impress with his production versatility. The first single off of his forthcoming EP Endorphins, “Feel It” saw him head into his usual hip-hop inspired trap roots, but his follow-up single “Summer In Your Arms” is anything but trap.

“Summer In Your Arms” draws from elements of dancehall and, dare I say, tropical house to create a warm summery single befitting of the seasonal change that’s upon us. Jackal’s ability to perfectly layer Josh Congress’s faint vocals is another testament to the producer’s ability to switch things up at will seamlessly.

Slushii Deletes All His Tweets… Except One

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 7:40pm

Slushii is one of the fastest rising producers right now. Just over a year ago, fans of dance music were excited about the new, talented producer coming onto the scene. He released a few tracks in a few days, and quickly proved himself as force to be reckoned with.

On top of the world recently, Slushii has since put out a ton of music, and has been touring quite heavily. Unfortunately, it may have gotten to him… he just deleted every single one of his tweets, except for one:

Concerns go out to Slushii, as this may be a case of burn-out, something very common when up-and-coming artists start touring heavily right off the bat.

If it is, our thoughts are with him and we hope he feels better soon — if it isn’t, we hope it’s foreshadowing some new music!

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 6:28pm

It’s that time again! That beautifully- significant day of the month where junglists from every corner of the 174 spectrum can diverge into an exceptional night of bass music at Union Nightclub in DTLA. As always, not only is there an internationally-robust lineup of unadulterated talent, but a plethora of stages to choose from based upon the musical tastes of the attendee.

Featuring none other than heavyweight artists such as Annix, XtrahSignalDLRZero T and Apok-C, this saturday night is sure to be one of the most memorable we’ve ever experienced.

In room two, Heavy Dub & Get Heavy are bringing some of the biggest name in dubstep to grace their stage, with artists such as Emalkay, Disconnect, Black Jesus, Gunkdubs and Ozmium. In an unbiased(clearly biased) additional stage, myself and my collective of North American based drum and bass producers will be hosting our very own side stage through The Database Collective featuring myself and my partner (Consouls,) Zeal, Forgotten 1, Blacklab, Wraith, Avok, Theatrix, Ryan Origin, Tempyre and a very special secret guest to be announced.

Kaskade’s New Track Remixes Tinashe Original into Straight Flames [LISTEN]

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 4:57pm

This remix is proof that Kaskade is capable of anything — even producing straight fire future bass!

The renowned DJ/producer/remixer is typically known for his big room bangers that play out perfectly at large-scale festivals, but Kaskade’s timeless work over the past few decades has proven he can master any genre in the electronic realm.

For Tinashe‘s “Flame” (Remix), Kaskade adds in some essential bass and hi-hats that the original didn’t even know it was missing. Plus, he inserts an equally beautiful, bassy drop to match the R&B songstress’ stunning vocals.

Kaskade recently played out the track at both Shaky Beats and Middlelands, and it was well received by both crowds alike. Now, we can listen to this fire remix any time we want!

Autograf’s New Single “Simple” Has The Chainsmokers Listed As Co-Writers

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 4:53pm

Autograf returns with yet another blissfully tranquil single “Simple” featuring Victoria Zaro. The song itself definitely has all the makings of a sleeper indie dance hit thanks to Victoria’s soulful vocals and rocking live instrumentation.

The most interesting thing about the song though is that once you dig through the BMI database for information on the song there are two curiously out of place names that immediately stick out. One such Alexandar J Pall and another such Andrew Taggert. In other words, The Chainsmokers co-wrote this Autograf single.

Mysterious as that may be, it’s common to remember that in pop music it’s not uncommon for writers to write music for projects outside of their own artist projects – even if it is unusual for artists the size of The Chainsmokers. Autograf and The Chainsmokers actually have a bit of history together dating back to when the live trio toured with  The Chainsmokers as one of the many opening acts on their Friendzone Tour two years ago. Perhaps they set out to write a song together on the road that fell by the wayside only for Autograf to continue working on it on their own.

Victoria Zaro and The Chainsmokers also have a bit of history of their own with the singer singing on “New York City” from the duo’s Bouquet EP.

Your EDM – Week In Music 5/19/17

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 4:51pm

Another week, another playlist! This week we have Alan Walker, Seven Lions, Feed Me and Mura Masa as the heavy hitters with new singles.

Mura Masa snags a spot on the cover, having recruited none other than Desiigner for “All Around The World,” just one release after teaming up with Charli XCX.

Meanwhile, Alan Walker’s already off to a big start on his new single “Tired” that’s already at 225,880 streams despite only being available in North America for not even 24 hours. DROELOE and San Holo teamed up for the rocking “Lines of the Broken,” while Seven Lions continues to be prolific with his third single of the year, teaming up with Ellie Goulding for “Don’t Leave.”

Emerging act, and one of my personal favorites, A R I Z O N A just put out their debut album GALLERY from which we featured new release “Running.” The same goes for drum & bass legend Feed Me with his new EP Feed Me’s Existential Crisis. From that body of work, “Crazy Maybe” with Kill The Noise and Anjulie made the cuts.

Finally, we’ve got some lovely new remixes coming your way courtesy of Ferdinand Weber, Chace, Kaskade, Medasin and a few others.

All that and more below!

With the release of “There For You” only a week away, Troye Sivan decided to show up to Martin Garrix’s headlining show at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco last night.

The two first performed together at Coachella earlier this year to debut their new song for the first time, and they’re really ramping up the promo at this point. And why not? The song sounds fucking great.

Liam Payne of One Direction Recalls Saving Calvin Harris from Death by Flying Dwarf

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 4:49pm

Well, here’s our WTF story of the day…

In throwback news, One Direction‘s Liam Payne once saved Calvin Harris‘ life. If that’s not outrageous enough, add to the fact that it went down at Miley Cyrus‘ 21st birthday party at Beacher’s Mad House in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It gets crazier — a flying little person performer was zooming on a zip line toward the 6’5” DJ, and the 1D member told him to duck just in time.

Payne recalled the incident during an interview with The Sun, “I was at Miley Cyrus’ 21st birthday party. There was obviously everybody there and I saved Calvin Harris from a midget. That was quite bizarre.”

Harris took to Twitter after the incident to share his appreciation, but the details have been a mystery until now…

Big thank you to @Real_Liam_Payne for saving me from getting KO’d by a flying “person of unusually short stature” tonight

Good looking out!

Skrillex Joined In The Studio By Cool & Dre

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 3:02pm

Skrillex has certainly been keeping busy outside of conventional dance music having been spotted in the studio yet again with some big acts outside of dance music. This time around, legendary hip hop production duo Cool & Dre joined Skrillex for a session.

@skrillex x @coolanddre #lanights

A post shared by Cool – Cool & dre (@coolcnd) on May 19, 2017 at 2:33am PDT

Cool & Dre have been producing hip-hop classics like “Hate It Or Love It” and “Rodeo” by The Game and Juvenile respectively for over a decade. Their production discography more or less reads like a laundry list of biggest names in hip-hop of the mid to late 2000s with Nas, Wale, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, DJ Khaled, Ja Rule and more included.

While we’re prone to believe that projects like these might never be heard, considering Skrillex’s history of selective releases, working with background producers like these makes us think there might indeed be something bigger going on. Exactly what? We don’t know… yet.

“Closer” Crosses 1 Billion Spotify Streams

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 2:10pm

Another week another milestone… yet again. “Closer” by The Chainsmokers & Halsey has broken all sorts of records so far, so why not add another accomplishment to the list? Yesterday, “Closer” officially crossed 1 billion streams on Spotify clocking in at 1,001,370,486 in this morning’s update.

To date, it’s the second most popular song on Spotify right after “One Dance” by Drake which sits at a cool 1,220,066,439 streams. “Lean On,” “Sorry” and “Shape of You” are all in the 900 million stream range, but for now the billions club only has two members.

“One Dance” has been averaging around 6.7 million streams weekly for the last month while “Closer” has notched close to 9.3 million streams weekly in the same period, so first place on Spotify isn’t too far out of reach for The Chainsmokers.

This is nuts! Closer 1,000,000,000 @halsey pic.twitter.com/91Ie4ITnAv

Congratulations to them once again!

Guys Behind “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” (Remix) Drop Another Official for Ed Sheeran [LISTEN]

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 1:08pm

Electronic music group Seeb is back with another mainstream remix!

The Norwegian trio, consisting of Simen Eriksrud, Espen Berg, and Nick Strand, blew up in 2015 after remixing Mike Posner‘s “I Took A Pill in Ibiza” into something even better than the original. Now, they’re tackling another monster hit — “Castle on the Hill.”

Ed Sheeran’s album ÷ (Divide), and literally all of its tracks have charted worldwide. Meanwhile, Seeb reached huge success with their “ITAPII” (Remix), which topped the charts in Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, and the United Kingdom, plus hit the top 10 in Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. The Ed Sheeran x Seeb collaboration only makes sense.

Listen as Seeb transforms the indie pop song into into an emotional and reflective, synthy piece that will hit you straight in the feels. We’re not saying it’s better than the original, but it does give Ed Sheeran’s work a little more “umph” behind it!
