SMLE & XAXO Deliver Stunning Live Cover of Zedd’s “Stay”

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 5:08pm

Zedd & Alessia Cara’s “Stay” became an international hit when it released, reaching #1 in a variety of charts. However, we can guarantee you’ve never heard it like XAXO & SMLE deliver. Both groups perform live and collaborated on this cover of “Stay” in a fresh and engaging way.

Splitting up duties between guitar, vocals, keys, synths, etc., the two completely transforming Zedd’s song into an indie rock/electronic tour de force. The video that comes along with the cover is equally impressive, showing how effortlessly the two work together to create something so utterly magical.

Brownies & Lemonade Makes Huge Strides As Curator of LA’s Red Bull Sound Select [Interview]

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 5:03pm

Brownies & Lemonade isn’t just a strange nutritional pairing anymore, it’s also the name of a major movement in LA dance music. The collective or promotional group or something else entirely (B&L has worn many hats) has embedded itself as a part of LA dance music culture, as can be clearly evidenced by the myriad artists who have called their stages home. But it isn’t just dance music; the artists booked for B&L shows are as diverse as the people who go to them.

This year, B&L is honored to participate in the Red Bull Sound Select series of shows as a full-fledged curator, putting together a stellar lineup of shows. Red Bull Sound Select is an accelerator for music artists. It consists of 18 city residencies, 200+ events each year, 250+ artists, 50 partners and a growing list of our own festivals like 30 Days and 3 Days in Miami.

Tonight, Brownies & Lemonade has their own showcase at the Belasco in Los Angeles that you do not want to miss… trust us.

We caught up with events producer Chad Kenney to ask him a few questions about B&L, their partnership with RBSS, and more. Details on tonight’s show can be found here.

Brownies & Lemonade has been a fixture in LA for a couple years now. What does this milestone mean for you as a brand, and also as the founders of the brand?

It’s been a huge milestone being able to work with Red Bull Sound Select in a creative capacity, and pretty surreal to see the growth from a couple of kids who just wanted free Red Bull product at our small parties a few years ago, to a full-fledged team helping put together a show for the 30 Days in LA series last year. Working with RBSS on this show at Belasco is a culmination of that growth as well.

Bringing out special guests like Diplo, Lido, and Alison Wonderland for shows is a pretty clear indication that you guys have caught the eyes of some major players. Do you try to stay visible as a brand or does it come naturally at this point?

Every time we’re able to work with artists of that caliber it’s always a big deal for us and we definitely don’t take it for granted. For all the visibility that these artists have helped us gain it adds more expectations to continue to bring that level of talent to our shows, so that requires a lot of hard work that doesn’t come naturally.

You clearly have a devoted group of fans, but also a lot of DJs who owe a lot of their first appearances in LA to a B&L show. What’s one of the more memorable debuts you’ve featured?

When looking at the incredible rise of artists such as Louis The Child, Sam Gellaitry, Jai Wolf, etc. it’s pretty hard not to look back at their LA debut with us and reminisce. For me personally I think the first Moving Castle showcase in LA really felt like a watershed moment for us by being able to bring out the wave of internet talent that wasn’t getting shine at that time. And it’s all been up from there.

How do you think Red Bull has been able to bridge the gap between “just an energy drink” and a major sponsor and mover in dance music?

They just have the right people making decisions that allow projects like Red Bull Sound Select, Music Academy, BC One and Culture Clash to gain the necessary funding and production to have an impact on music culture.

I think that many companies invest in dance music / events solely focused on making a return, and Red Bull has focused on transformative projects that pay them back more through community and culture experiences than dollars and cents ever could.

As far as LA fixtures, B&L is a pretty heavy player for some of the craziest parties. What do you think of the importance of bringing (mostly) free music to people who might not have ever heard anything like it before?

None of us at B&L ever believed that music should have a high entry level price point in order to be enjoyed. When young, promising artists are playing their first shows how are you going to convince an unfamiliar audience with a $40 ticket? Luckily there are some really successful artists and partners here in LA that also share that sentiment.

A lot of LA party crews tend to stick to the “EDM” model. B&L has made a point of branching out into a lot of different styles. Case in point: Denzel Curry or Jazz Cartier. How have you been able to branch out without alienating a core fan base?

LA more than anywhere else represents a unique intersection between so many various cultures and styles that people are open to. I’m not sure a lot of people could branch out in other cities the way we’ve been able to. You’ll go to a typical “EDM” festival these days in So Cal and kids react the craziest for a Kendrick Lamar song.

Genres have been blurred beyond recognition since the term EDM was first coined and I think our parties and fans have embodied that naturally.

Becoming a curator for RBSS in LA is clearly an indication that you’re here to stay, but what’s next for B&L the rest of the year? Next year?

We just want to continue throwing shows each week and bring good music to people that want to hear it.

YourEDM Premiere: Anomalie Releases Beautiful New ‘Métropole’ EP on Lowtemp Music

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 4:26pm

Montreal must have some magical powers because it has produced a phenomenal producer. Well, the location and the fact that Anomalie has 17 years of classical and jazz training to back up his piano skills. His impressive knack for the piano shines through in his latest EP titled Métropole. Anomalie effortlessly blends elements of trap, hip hop, funk. jazz and classical music to create gorgeous works of art. We get to offer an exclusive first listen!

The eight track EP takes the listener on a soulful journey beginning with a piano only introductory track. Each track hammers in Anomalie’s signature sound, driving home the fact that this kid has a lot of talent. The first two singles off the EP, “Velours” and “Daybreak” have already gotten thousands of streams and rightfully so. The rest of the EP, while blending similar elements as the initial singles, offers the listener a new taste on what Anomalie has to offer. I must say, it is very excited to hear such musicality offered these days.

Check out the full EP below:

PhaseOne Sits Down To Talk ‘Dreamscape EP’

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 4:16pm

Marking PhaseOne’s second release in quick succession on Disciple, we have the Dreamscape EP. Still reeling from the intense display of Dubstep mastery on his last Origins EP, Duffy shows no sign of slowing down with his latest offering. This EP has quickly become a staple across the Disciple family with support from Barely Alive, Virtual Riot and Dubloadz  at recent festivals. (see below)

http://www.youredm.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/IMG_2923.mp4

We caught up with the man himself while he was out in LA, check the full interview below!

This EP feels like a very natural progression from ‘Origins’ which is sure to please the fans… can we expect more in this direction?

Absolutely! It was a real challenge trying to top the Origins EP but I think I’m really finding my defined/signature sound the more I try to master this Metal + Dubstep fusion. Dreamscape EP is probably my heaviest work yet and features full metal sections, punchy drum fills and of course big bass sounds.

I know you were working on the EP whilst on your recent US tour, do you find it hard to produce on the road? Or more inspiring?

I find it rather difficult to write on the road! But since the Origins EP and all the touring off the back of it I haven’t had a free weekend since March and don’t have a free weekend until like September or something, so trying to find that creative space / motivation in hotel rooms and planes is something i’m having to get used to. In saying that I’m super stoked on how this EP turned out so clearly I’m on the right track.

I see you recently announced the Dreamscape Tour in Aus/NZ. Will this also be making its way back to the US?

Straight off the back of the Australian tour I’ll be relocating to America where I already have a bunch of festival bookings and events over the US summer including Toxic Summer, Dancefestopia, Big Dub Fest, UpNorth Fest & a whole lot more TBA! So yeah Dreamscape will definitely make its way all across the US over the next few months!

Some really interesting collaborations on this EP including Japanese metal band Crystal Lake… what was it like working with them? And what other collabs can we expect in the future?

Every track on this EP is a collab which I’m stoked about! The title track ‘Dreamscape’ features Japanese metal band Crystal Lake. I met the band at my show in Tokyo when I toured Japan earlier this year and they expressed how much they liked my sound and loved what I did with ‘In Hearts Wake’ on the Origins EP, so we made it happen. Working with metal elements like distorted guitars and screaming vocals is super refreshing, dubstep is so over saturated with the same shit and to me this is one of the turns it needs to take. I see more and more producers delving into the whole Metal + Bass music crossover which is awesome!

Pariente Law Firm Creates Ad Targeting Those Arrested At EDC Las Vegas

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 3:42pm

Hosting one of the biggest music festivals in North America is a sure way to bring in plenty of tourists and with them, a huge influx of economic activity. Not that Las Vegas needs it or anything. While hotels, restaurants, and bars can also certainly expect a good amount of traffic from EDC Las Vegas it looks like local law firm Pariente Law certainly did as well.

In fact, they actually went out and created an ad targeting the 100+ attendees who were arrested over the weekend. Aptly named “Arrested at EDC 2017,” this video details the exploits of founder Michael Pariente’s experience in working the majority of the drug-possession charges.

Hopefully, nobody reading this can personally attest to the quality of Michael Pariente in dealing with felony drug-possession charges, as that would obviously imply the previous arrest, but in any case, if you do end up in a bind – you know who to call!

Prepare For “Dreamz,” A Collaboration By ZHU x NERO

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 3:38pm

While we’re happy for Alana Watson of Nero who just announced she is having a child, it’s not actually the best Nero news of the day.

We received a tip from one of our readers about some texts that people are getting from Zhu, regarding his mystery Blacklizt show. The time and location for the event was announced, as well as the rule that all attendees must wear all black clothing, or they will not be allowed in.

Aside from that, however, was a bit.ly link that led to a teaser for one of the year’s biggest collabs, Zhu x Nero. Entitled “Dreamz,” the track is a brilliant blend of both producers’ styles, melding Nero’s dark electro with Zhu’s penchant for songwriting and vocals. The teaser video that comes along with the audio is also simply creepy af.

No release date on “Dreamz” yet, but holy fuck we’re stoked to hear the full thing if only the teaser is giving us full-body goosebumps.

‘Why wasn’t he taken to a hospital?’ Asks Family Of Man Who Died On-Site At EDC

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 3:13pm

The story of 34-year-old Michael Morse, who died at EDC over the weekend, hits close to home. It’s always a tragedy when someone dies at a music festival, whether due to their own inexperience or someone else’s negligence, the common thought is that it’s always avoidable.

Morse’s family is now asking why he wasn’t taken to a hospital. Over the course of the weekend, there were over 1,000 medical calls at the festival, of which at least six were transported to local hospitals. Morse began to convulse at 3:25am and was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 7:41am at the speedway. What happened in those four hours that he wasn’t transported to a medical facility?

“Why did he sit in a tent for four hours? Why wasn’t he taken to the hospital where doctors could have possibly done more?” said Morse’s wife, Jennifer Marshall, late Wednesday. “From my understanding, they did take other people to the hospital. But I don’t know why they didn’t take Mike.”

“This is such a senseless death,” she said.

Insomniac released a statement on Tuesday following news of Morse’s passing.

“The unexpected passing of a loved one is tragic, and while the exact cause of this tragedy is still unknown, we do know that family and friends are grieving. It is with great sadness that we send our thoughts and condolences to the loved ones of the man who passed away after the festival had ended.

Our health and safety plan is created over several months with local agencies. Our roaming medical personnel are available twenty-four hours a day, free of charge, with the best emergency room doctors, nurses, EMTs and paramedics in the country. A full staff of security and police are also available to all attendees. We encourage everyone to approach our caring staff and ask for help if needed.”

We’ve reached out to Insomniac for a statement regarding Ms. Marshall’s concerns.

Emmit Fenn Releases ‘Prologue’ EP

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 9:27pm

#1 Spotify Global Viral act Emmit Fenn isn’t your typical EDM artist – though the same could be said about a lot of artists making their mark on the scene these days. What sets Emmit apart from the regular riff raff are a few things including his impeccable song writing and lyrics, his instrumentation and overall vision.

The closest approximation to Emmit that comes to mind is another artist associated with management outfit TH3RD BRAIN, Stephen. It’s no surprise that both artists are signed with the company, given their penchant for emotive productions blended with indie, pop and dance elements. It seems to be a niche that TH3RD BRAIN is looking to fill and we’re absolutely loving it.

Prologue, the debut EP from Emmit Fenn, spans 9 tracks, and could technically be considered an album. It fluctuates from downtempo future bass in “Oceans” to stylistically adventurous trap-esque themes like “Painting Greys,” to crooning, heartbroken songs in the form of “Woman.”

Though the basic sound is always encompassing the tracks, each has its own unique identity and story to tell; stories, being something that dance music has all but done away with.

Check out Prologue below.

Slushii Gives Unreleased Skrillex Track “Voltage” New Life with Dub-Driven Remix [LISTEN]

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 9:20pm

Slushii is back again and killing the game by remixing some classic Skrillex!

What starts out as a sweet, sugary treat from the bass music producer switches gears just in time for a satisfying dubstep drop, paying homage to Skrillex’s signature style while blending in both his “Cinema (Remix)” and unreleased track “Voltage!”

This track, supercharged with the power of bass, comes after his latest Monstercat release “Luv U Need U,” which dropped earlier this month.

Recently, Slushii vowed to change up his live sets forever, and we can’t wait to hear how massive tracks like this one will play out during his new shows! Keep ’em coming, Slush!

Your EDM Interview and Premiere: Hybrid Minds – “Secret Place”

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 8:50pm

Hybrid Minds, comprised of Josh White and Matt Lowe, have managed to establish themselves quickly since their first album, Mountains, and they’re now seen as one of the best liquid drum and bass duos in the world, maybe even one of the best drum and bass acts full stop. Now a year into their own label and with a huge summer festival tour coming up, Hybrid Minds are releasing a massive second album called Elements. The 24-track LP features collaborations with Linguistics and Grimm, with lots of summery vocal tracks. Matt and Josh sat down with Your EDM last week to talk about their process, what inspires them, and the Your EDM premiere of “Secret Place”, which also featured on Friction’s BBC Radio 1 Show.

You guys have had a lot of singles over the past four years since the release of Mountains on Spearhead in 2013, but this is the first LP since then. What made you decide to release an album now?

Matt: We did have a lot of material sort of ready, but we’re not the sort of people who wanted to just throw together a bunch of tracks and call it an album. Some of the tracks we had got weeded out, and others just fell into place. It took us three years to do this one, so there was a lot of thought that went into it but it also sort of naturally came about with the tracks we thought would work.

Josh: I think it was part of the process of starting our new label. Working on an album is a bit of a big deal and we were quite worn out after the first one so it was nice to have a break and just roll with some singles for a bit. When we started our own label we had a lot of energy for getting another body of work down so decided an album project was the best thing to kick it off.

So this is the first full album on the Hybrid Minds label as well. Did you do your own mastering on it then from within the label?

Josh: We don’t master our own tracks. We always send everything to Beau at Ten Eight Seven to master for the vinyl press etc. Big ups Beau!

Matt: Yeah, we have got a third party mastering company…Ten Eight Seven do a great job. (At this point) it just adds more to the workload we already have…the label in itself is so much work, so we try and keep the jobs (for ourselves) to a minimum.

How involved are you with the rest of the jobs with the label?

Matt: Pretty much everything at the moment. We did take on a label manager just recently because if I’m honest I think it’s more work than we anticipated at the start, so he does a lot of the management now and that’s helpful. Josh does graphic design, which is pretty useful because he does all our branding, our logos and our artwork.

Josh: We do it all really. The artwork, the schedule, the merchandise and run all our own social media and website with little bit of help. We work closely with our friend Gareth who takes care of a lot of the boring stuff like contracts as well as general help all round. He is vital to the label and without him I doubt we would have started it.

And when did you start the label?

Matt: I think just about one year ago.

Well happy one-year anniversary then! Back to the album, there are a lot of collaborations and guest vocalists on pretty much every track here. Hybrid Minds are known for being quite vocalist-heavy, but in this case every song had some kind of collaboration. How did that all work in terms of forming the album?

Josh: Each track has its own story really but it seems to be a process of our writing that a vocalist will pop into our heads when we are making something and we have to send it to them to see what they will do with it. A few of the tracks felt like sequels to similar collabs on the first album which was a really nice thing to do.

Matt: Yeah, I think we’re always sort of looking back to the previous album (Mountains), which was vocal-heavy – maybe not as vocal-heavy as this one – so we ended up using a lot of people from the previous album and singles because they’re so consistent and they just make it easy. Like Linguistics are always great to work with (on “Home”), Charlie P…all these people are so quick and we needed that because the album took so long as it was. It’s never intentional for it to be vocal-heavy. We often write a track that’s just meant to have a verse or two, but then the vocalists; the singers that we use are so good that we don’t end up wanting to change it. It’s like, once you hear it you can’t unhear it. That’s really what happened with “Secret Place” and Tiffani Juno.

Right, that’s the track we’re premiering. So she was one of the people who just ran with the lyrics and you didn’t want to mess with it after that? Do most of the vocalists do their own lyrics?

Josh: We tend to let vocalists have free reign with lyrics and go from there. We find it more of a collaborative thing and find it very exciting to see their take on the music. When we get a new vocal through that’s really good it’s an absolute buzz.

Matt: We don’t consider ourselves lyric writers. We’ll write a track and then we’ll think of someone for that track, but they come up with their own lyrics. If we like it, yeah, it’s great, but sometimes we may ask them to tweak it but…but then like I said, sometimes we start out thinking we want the vocals to be really sparse, but what they do ends up being so good that we don’t want to cut it.

So it sounds like the vocalist then makes the track and that really came into play with “Secret Place”, as the vocals cover the whole track and it almost takes on a pop structure, which is quite different for a drum and bass track.

Matt: Yeah Tiffani is the one on that track and it definitely ended up that way process-wise. We started out wanting sparse vocals we could cut up, but the way she put it together…it just worked so well and we just can’t bring ourselves to strip it back, so it definitely takes on a pop structure. With a lot of drum and bass tracks, especially liquid, it’s stripped back or cut together, whereas we don’t mind having more a verse-chorus-verse structure if it works for the sound we want.

Josh: We found that a lot of the tracks were turning into full songs. I think it’s due to us using vocalists who aren’t bound to drum and bass so they have a different approach to writing which we have found really refreshing in this project. Tiffani is amazing, she always takes me by surprise with a direction she has taken a track in and I always end up absolutely loving what she has done. We won’t always be aiming for a full vocal track with her but she does her thing and we can never pick anything to cut out.

Do you have a favorite track or tracks on the album?

Matt: Yeah, I’d say so…there’s a track called “Inside”, and it’s quite uplifting I think, where we tend to do a lot of sad stuff so it was nice to make something really uplifting. People seem to like it in the clubs as well.

Josh: For me it would probably be “Home”, “Listen” and “Brighter Days”.

With any track, how do you guys like to work together? Do you split tracks up into parts, or collab on everything?

Josh: We collab on the lot. We send ideas back and forth and keep going until something is finished. It’s really good to constantly have fresh ears on an idea. I’m a very indecisive person and for me it’s amazing to have an outside opinion and fresh ears. Likewise for Matt I think. I don’t think our tracks would be half as good if we didn’t send them back and forth so much. Having a break from something and hearing it progress really inspires you to do that extra bit.

Matt: Yeah, I think Josh is very detailed-oriented, whereas I like to just slap things down. I’ll start a new track and write a melody and then I’ll get bored…I just like new things constantly. Josh will go in and work on it for weeks and weeks. We both get a lot of ideas, but he’s definitely the detail man. I just like making melodies. I’d happily make melodies all day long with no drums.

Josh: I enjoy it all really, from playing around with melodies and the fine details. I always want something to be perfect and have the right feeling so I spent a lot of time nit picking stuff and trying to go that extra bit to getting the best result possible.

Sounds like quite a supportive process. Back to “Secret Place”, talking about the drums, it seems to be quite old school, like old liquid with lots of amen break. How did you decide to put that together?

Josh: I can’t remember that well but I think that started with the drums and melody. We wanted to get a couple more ameny tracks on the album to split up the straight beats. For me I really like going in on amens and editing them to high heaven to get a really interesting groove.

Matt: We’ve wanted to make a really good amen track – we’ve maybe had a few in the past, but nothing really modern – we wanted to make a more modern amen track. We took a lot of inspiration from a track Logistics did and how he was using old amens. The amen break on that was so punchy. It didn’t sound old, and that’s how the process started on that. It was a long time coming putting that together.

It does seem like a nice marriage of amens and modern elements, and it’s a great summer track for the festival season. Is there anything else you guys want to say to fans or friends?

Josh: Thank you so much for your continued support. Our fans are the best we could ask for. It’s always so positive and inspiring. You lot are safe as fuck.

Matt: Thanks to everyone who’s pre-ordered as well and I hope you enjoy the album!

The Elements LP releases on Hybrid Minds’s label on Friday, June 23. The album can be pre-ordered in multiple formats by clicking here.

Parcels Talks What It’s Really Like Working With Daft Punk

Daft Punk pleasantly surprised the music world by producing a new track for the Aussie group Parcels — and now, we’re getting the backstory on how the “Overnight” collaboration came to be!

“In early 2016 we played our first ever French show in a sweaty little basement club in downtown Paris and it was packed with a wild crowd,” Parcels revealed to NME.

“At some point – unbeknownst to us – two Robots entered discreetly to observe. The connection had been made.”

Parcels described working with the legendary electronic duo as “inspirational.” And, despite the elite status of Daft Punk, there was never any “ego” in the way of their work together.

“From the start to the finish it was an equal collaboration with no pressure, only a desire to create something meaningful together. That gave us a lot of confidence in ourselves, as well as respect for those two.”

While they’re formally referred to as Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo on the credits of “Overnight,” we know them as the most innovative, robotic duo of dance music! Listen to the funky fresh tune all over again, and read the full interview from NME!

Nitti Gritti never seems to disappoint. His newest addition to the catalog is a single released from spirited’s Free Spirit Vol. 5 compilation. The track is literally “Sick” and is the perfect follow up to his smash hit “Famous”.

Don’t be fooled by the chilled out R&B hook that starts the track out. It isn’t long before you’re hit with a brilliant array of future bass chords and addicting melodies. The second verse returns to the chilled out hook before drop number two flips everything on its head.

Skellism Finally Drop Their Massive Collab With Lil Jon & Terror Bass, “In The Pit”

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 4:41pm

Out today via Geffen Records, fans can finally listen to one of the most lit trap tracks of the year courtesy of Skellism & Lil Jon, featuring Terror Bass. “In The Pit” has been in rotation in DJ sets for the better part of this year, getting regularly rinsed out by the likes of Snails, The Chainsmokers, Carnage, and Kayzo.

The track features one of the best uses of Lil Jon vocals in an EDM track we’ve heard in a long while, since “Prison Riot” or even “Turn Down For What.” In the realm of hard trap which has been consistently dominated by acts like 4B and SAYMYNAME, Skellism have put up some serious competition.

Check it out below.

DJ Khaled Addresses EDC Incident During Radio Q&A

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 3:36pm

On the final day of EDC, DJ Khaled’s performance was cut short due to technical difficulties. Of course, due to his own particular brand of infamy, rumors began flying that he was late, or that he was throwing a tantrum about this or that backstage, and some blogs even erroneously called his career over.

As the incident has sort of become talk of the town, Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella even spoke out about it, saying, “[DJ Khaled] arrived on time and ready to rock the crowd, but equipment issues delayed the performance. Even though there were technical difficulties he still got on stage and showed his fans love.”

This was further corroborated by DJ Khaled in an open format Q&A with Power 106 FM. When it came time to address the elephant in the room, Khaled was graceful and calm in his response – which just happens to be completely at odds with his response to the situation on Instagram.

What it boils down to is that Khaled was on time, EDC didn’t have his turntables, they couldn’t get the sound to work during his set for whatever reason, and he took what little time he had left in his set, 10-15 minutes worth, to play for his fans and show them love.

See his explanation below.
