Snapchat Launches ‘World Lenses’ Feature, Allows You To Add Filters To Real World Objects

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 6:58pm

Snapchat has seen its share of the instant video sharing market crumble with Instagram and Facebook constantly on its heels, but that hasn’t stopped the company from continuing to roll out some incredibly interesting new products.

Their latest update, dubbed the World Lenses’ feature, is sure to be a hit amongst users though with the crazy ability to add filters to real world objects – augmented reality if you will. Snapchat has been coy about using that term, as pointed out by Tech Crunchbut that’s essentially what the update offers.

The thirty-second video they shared with the update’s roll out shows how users can tap the screen when using the rear facing camera to find new lenses from which they can “paint the world.”

Trap City Uploads Trap Remix of iPhone Ringtone & It’s Pretty Good

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 6:56pm

Yes, you read that correctly. There now exists a trap remix of the iPhone ringtone, on one of the biggest YouTube music curators Trap City no less, that’s actually pretty damn good. Produced by 16-year-old producer jaydon lewis, “iPhone Ringtone Trap Remix” is probably one of the more interesting things I’ve heard all week.

The first “ring” is the recognizable tune that I’m sure everybody that’s reading this has heard before. As the ringtone progresses, jaydon layers the ‘instrumental’ with a bouncing bass line, textured percussion, and ‘aye’ vocal samples sprinkled throughout to turn this once simple ringtone into a full two-minute long remix that’s not half bad.

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 6:11pm

Whenever What So Not and Skrillex link up, it’s pretty much the best thing ever…

Both fan bases have been dying for their collaboration “GOH” to be released, as it’s been teased in sets for years. Just when we were beginning to think there was no hope of an official track, What So Not dropped a killer 2017 edit of the collab in his Coachella set. And, it’s really hard to listen and not drop the f bomb.

WSN and Skrilly both have such distinctive sounds that you can tell which parts were influenced each producer — the wonky and the wubby make for a perfectly hype mix!

Listen below! It’s just a clip, but it’s the best clip of the edit you can find anywhere on the internet!

These guys teamed up with RL Grime for “Waiting” in 2016, which also had some working versions before its release. So, let’s hope the same thing happens with “GOH!”

NYC will be getting down this summer, as a new venue is coming to Governors Island!

The 2-stage plan will cover 6 acres of the beautiful Upper New York Bay property, and although it’s not set to be ready until June 17th, it already has a stacked lineup. Huge acts like TiëstoCarl Cox, Hardwell, and Richie Hawtin are confirmed headliners, so you know it’s going to be a fire setup.

Nightlife mogul and owner of Williamsburg’s SchimanskiEddie Dean, is the man behind the plan, and the person NYC can thank for the development. According to Page Six, Dean says the venue will incorporate a blended range of get togethers including “food and beverage events” and “social events like a yoga rave and a children’s family brunch,” as well as a stacked music lineup.

Governors Island has been home to big EDM events like the Dirtybird BBQ, and a slew of other festivals, so it’s on track to find it’s place as a staple in the Big Apple’s music scene.

Holy Sh*t, Odesza Might Actually Be Releasing New Music Before their Red Rocks Shows

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 4:55pm

It’s been 3 years since we’ve heard new music from Odesza, and this might be our first hint that a release is near!

On Odesza’s Spotify page, a mysterious playlist has appeared with the following cryptic text:

…._ /.._ _ _ …..

Naturally, the internet quickly caught on and figured out that it’s probably Morse code for 4/25 which is in t-minus 6 days! That, or it could be literally anything else — a single or album title — are we playing hangman? Or, it’s not any of those things and we’re just getting our hopes up.

With Odesza’s 2-night Red Rocks extravaganza going down next month, we are praying to the music gods that they drop a full album beforehand.

As vauge as the tease is, we’re super hyped because it’s about damn time!

DANGER Shares Mixtape Ahead Of Debut Album Release

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 3:25pm

I’ve been listening to DANGER for the better part of the last decade, and though his aesthetic slightly resembles the now-more-popular Malaa, we can assure you that this French artist came up with the mask first.

The dark and gritty French electro has been a staple of his sound since the beginning, and with his debut album, DANGER doubles down on the sound design and cinematic composition to create a wholly encompassing listening experience.

The album contains 16 tracks, all of which are sure to knock your socks off. Listen to an exclusive mixtape of the album below!

The Chainsmokers Top Billboard Artist 100 for First Time

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 2:17pm

The Chainsmokers have accomplished yet another first in their career, this time topping the Billboard Artist 100 for the first time.

According to Billboard, “The Artist 100 (which launched in July 2014) measures artist activity across key metrics of music consumption, blending album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.

The Chainsmokers take the top spot away from Ed Sheeran who stepped down to #2 after five nonconsecutive weeks. Drake and Bruno Mars also each step down a rung. To place #1 this week, The Chainsmokers charted a 263% increase in activity.

This all happens in the same week that their debut album Memories… Do Not Open debuts atop the Billboard 200, despite mass criticism from many music outlets. However, data from Hits Daily Double projects that the album will sell only 17,000-20,000 pure US copies in its second week, a 90% drop in sales from its first week. This would be close to a record drop for a #1 album.

Thanks to another week of strong track sales and streams, the album will nonetheless remain prominently positioned on the Billboard 200, though it seems a lot of the initial luster of the album has indeed worn off.

Your EDM Premiere: Savoy and Bright Lights – The Wolf (Light House Remix)

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 12:56pm

Light House might only be an emerging act at this point in time, but a glance at his socials will tell you that he’s recently been picked up by the same team that manages Whethan and Louis The Child – a ringing endorsement for a future star in dance music if there ever was one. In fact, he actually had production credits on Whethan’s runaway hit single “Can’t Hide” which should tell you all you need to know about the young producer

His latest work is a remix of Savoy and Bright Light’s collaborative single “The Wolf.” Once again, his patented horn work stands out as an emotional driver giving the single a unique yet emotive twist that’s sure to be stuck in your head all week. The poppy leads also stood out to me plus the stripped down string work early on – a real masterclass in instrumentation if there ever was one.

YourEDM Exclusive Interview: VAVO at Minus Zero

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 12:35pm

While I was at Minus Zero Festival in Vermont, I had the fortunate opportunity of speaking with upcoming duo VAVO comprised of Jesse Fischer and Alden Martin. The two young house producers have an exciting past with releases gaining support from W&W, KSHMR, Dash Berlin, and so many more. I sat down with them to discuss what the future holds for them as well as what shaped them into the artists they are today.

How did you guys start producing together?

Alden: Jesse was in a duo previously called Flight School and I heard one of his songs ages ago. So I hit him up to make a track. We made “Cyclone” and we found out we worked really well together.

How is it that you managed to gain support from W&W and so many others so early in your career?

Jesse: Everything we send them they show a lot of love on. Our style kind of reflects their style. The stuff that we make is what they play live.

Alden: KSHMR is one of our biggest supporters and he was one of the first people to support us. He supported the “Seek Bromance” Remix and it did really well. I got to meet him in Ibiza and got his phone number and chatted for a bit after his show.

Jesse: He’s one of those artists that if someone hits him up on Twitter or something he replies. He’s really down to earth, which is hard to find with a lot of artists. We try to do that. Our fans are what make us, so if you can’t show love to your fans you can’t have them.

What inspired the name?

Jesse: It’s kind of weird.

Alden: We fought for ages and ages about what we wanted. It’s hard to think of something that sticks out.

Jesse: If it doesn’t come to you naturally it’s a lot of pressure. Alden came up with VAVO and I was like, that sounds pretty cool.

Alden: I was in my bedroom and I was drawing some things on a pad of paper. I drew a couple triangles and a circle and it looked like VAVO.

Jesse: It’s easy to remember, but it will always be at the end of alphabetical posters. Should have started with an A. AVO (laughs). No, but I think it’s cool. It’s short, it’s easy to remember.

Alden: We wanted something that looked good as a logo as well. We used to have it with triangles, but then we got this paintbrush effect that we thought was better.

Jesse: We want to be a household name in dance music. Everyone starts somewhere. When we started, we did the whole who are we kind of thing. It didn’t last too long. It’s hard. Like k?d and those guys who are still somewhat anonymous, it’s hard to keep that up because you want to say this is us, this is what we do.

Are there any upcoming tracks you can tell us about?

Jesse: We’ve got a few tracks coming out on Freeway Recordings, we can’t say too much right now. John [Christian] is super supportive and does amazing mix and masters for tracks. We have a lot of stuff coming out with him. Hopefully some stuff with Mainstage. There’s a lot of stuff that we’re working on right now that hopefully within the next few months will be released.

Are you playing any festivals this summer?

Jesse: We’re playing some, but we’re on the phase two lineups so can’t reveal too much right now. We have a couple more gigs in NY with some pretty big names too, also can’t give away to much about those though. We’re playing Story Miami with Nervo, that much I can tell you. We’ve been VAVO since 2015. That’s when we started. But really we’ve only begun playing out and our music has been taking off since we met Max [their manager]. Our first show was in September of 2016. From then to now things have been really good.

What would be your ideal festival?

Alden: Ultra, Tomorrowland.

Jesse: There are a lot of cool festivals too like Minus Zero that are popping up. I think this is their second year and the backdrop here is amazing. Having the mountain right behind the stage is amazing.

Watch out for these two because they’re definitely on the rise!

John Gibbons – P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)

Wed, 04/19/2017 - 8:15am

John Gibbons has a multitude of skills ranging from DJing Ireland’s premiere radio stations, to hosting podcasts, to producing dance-floor hits. The most recent contribution to his growing catalog is his take on “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)“. Originally a Michael Jackson tune, Gibbons has transformed it to fit today’s dance floors, creating a new feel good house classic with some deep vibes.

Beginning with the familiar vocals of the original P.Y.T., Gibbons combines elements of future house with the nostalgic feelings to set the stage for his remake on the track. Definitive deep house sounds ring through as the drop is brought in with a driving bass and addicting melodies. It’s hard not to dance to the groove that Gibbons establishes with the track, seamlessly blending the older vocals with new sounds. This track is just in time for the summer as it gives off feel good vibes that make you want to dance late into the night.

Check out the track below:

Many Injured After Acid Thrown On Party Goers in East London Nightclub

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 8:20pm

“In the space of two minutes people went from dancing to the acid being thrown,” an unnamed witness describes the horrific incident that went down at an East London nightclub yesterday morning.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from Mangle E8 around 1 am BST, when a very strange attack erupted on the dance floor. A man had directly sprayed 2 club-goers with acid, and injured up to 16 others who also suffered burns.

A London Fire Brigade spokeswoman said an “unknown corrosive substance” had been thrown. “It was identified by a pH paper test as a strong acidic substance,” she said.

The attack leaves two in critical, but stable, condition at the hospital, while the others were treated for minor injuries. No arrests have been made, and the incident is currently under investigation.

Gramatik and Ramzoid Team Up For Sick Remix of Flume’s “Wall Fuck”

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 8:09pm

Flume dropped the official remix LP for Skin not too long ago and while this brilliant remix didn’t make the cut, it’s nevertheless one of the most creative takes we’ve heard of “Wall Fuck” in quite some time.

Both Gramatik and Ramzoid’s unique sound design and production styles can be heard in this joint remix that transforms the experimental single into a grimy, melodic release with a banging bass line and incredibly tight percussion work. Chock full of visceral instrument work from the guitar riffs in the drop and the melancholic piano keys in the outro, Gramatik and Ramzoid’s reinvented “Wall Fuck” is definitely one for the books.

Best of all? It’s available for free.

Martin Garrix Launches STMPD Recording Studios

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 6:03pm

Martin Garrix is finally taking the next step in the evolution of his label, STMPD RCRDS, as he has just acquired and launched his own recording studio.

The studio will take the place of the famous FC Walvisch in Amsterdam, where A-List artists and producers including Pharrell Williams, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, The Script, David Guetta and also Martin Garrix have recorded and produced music.

Garrix said that it was an important step in realizing his dreams, to create “a platform and a place in Amsterdam where writers, musicians and producers from all over the world can get together to create amazing music in an inspiring environment’.”

The studio will be renamed STMPD Recording Studios, and it will transform and get its own look the coming months. During and after this transformation, the studio facilities will remain available for third parties.

The original team of FC Walvisch will move to STMPD recording studios, as well. Founder Marcel Walvisch will not stop with FC Walvisch, he will continue the activities in the field of sound design and music production. He says, “I am proud of my team and that they will go on with Martin Garrix. I have never done any work other than sound design and music production. This is the best job there is, so I’m definitely continuing with FC Walvisch. I wish my team all the best in the future and will definitely keep visiting the studio myself!”

Aspire to Inspire 187: Herobust

Tue, 04/18/2017 - 6:00pm

(Original Photo By: Antodope)

Happiness is not always a guarantee in this life. There will be times when we find ourselves at a crossroads where neither option promises that joy and we must create it for ourselves. In order to do so, we have to push ourselves out of our comfort zones and be willing to take the risks that others might shy away from.

For Hayden Kramer, known to his fans as Herobust, music was not always the top priority. Growing up in a family of doctors, the idea of pursuing a career in medicine was quite reasonable and well supported by his loved ones. He even went as far as pre med at the University of Georgia. Soon enough, however, Hayden realized that the music he had been working with on the side all along was more rewarding than he may have originally thought.

“During high school, I was making beats for rappers in Atlanta. This led me to get heavy into music production. After college, when the time came to decide if I wanted to keep going and go to medical school or to pursue music, I decided I loved making music too much to give it up and I went hard in it. Coming full circle, I’ve been trying to make my music a synthesis of Dirty South and Bass music, and especially now, I’ve been getting into adding rap elements onto my tracks.”

Making the decision to shift one’s life in an entirely different direction is a major step. Some may have fears of disappointing family, the possibility that it might not work out, or even feelings of ‘well I’ve come this far, I might as well stick with it.’

For Hayden, it was simply a question of what made him the happiest— a question that we often forget to ask ourselves.

“It was honestly about deciding which one would make me a happier person. I think I would have liked being a doctor, but not to the level that I love making music. The destinations I’ve traveled to and the experiences I’ve had because of my musical journey…I believe are more meaningful than if I had just become a doctor who takes summer vacations. As far as family, I don’t know if they totally get it, but they have supported me in my decision, as they have done the doctor thing already and music was a bit of a new territory.”

There were of course some internal doubts along the way, as many artists experience that, but what keeps Hayden going at the end of the day is the fact that music moves him and he wants to share that feeling with as many people as he can.

“There are always doubts. When attempting to do music full-time, you’re going to doubt your choices, and for a lot of people, it’s best if they stop for their own mental health. But the people you see on TV and listen to all the time aren’t usually the best at what they do, but rather the most persistent at what they do. So that idea led the way for me to continue and know that I just need to make music for the fun of it, and always put it out while never worrying about my feelings of how other people should receive it.”

For so many, the fear of judgment from others stops us from chasing after our dreams. It takes a great deal of courage to allow ourselves to be vulnerable and share the projects we devote all of our time to day after day, hour after hour. It’s easy to fall into a routine that’s comfortable and stable even if it isn’t what we really want because it can sometimes feel safer.

Hayden shares some insightful advice when it comes to breaking through that barrier of complacency. Much like his choice to leave the promise of a medical career behind, Hayden suggests that staying true to yourself and your desires, even when that stops being easy, is the most important thing you can do for yourself.

“Be honest with yourself. You will always find yourself in comfortable situations where you think you fit in and are doing the correct thing. But sometimes, if you look deep down, you will find that you aren’t supposed to be comfortable, and that this place you’re in might not be where you want to be in your life. Comfort causes stagnation, and if you want to achieve your dreams, you must step out of your comfort zone and find the place you really want to be.”

This of course doesn’t mean that there won’t be more bumps along the way. There is no magic spell to make the willingness to jump the biggest obstacle and the rest as easy as pie. After all, taking the risk in the first place was unnerving for a reason.

As Herobust, Hayden has definitely struggled with finding a balance. From his perspective, there is always a constant search for balance between creating what makes you happy personally and what’s “poppin” in the scene at that moment. At times when it sounds like others are following a trend, Hayden reminds himself that it is his job as an artist to make his own mark on the music scene, forge his own path, and create something truly meaningful.

The inspiration for such has been drawn from many different styles of sound. One experience in particular was a heavy metal show Hayden attended a few months ago.

“A few months back, I went to a Heavy Metal show and I was BLOWN AWAY by how hard everyone there was going. It was easily the hardest I had seen people go to live music, and it reminded me of some of the grimier shows I do. It inspired the song on my EP called “Heavy Meddle.”

Hayden seems to always find his inspiration in people expressing themselves. You can get the idea that he really loves to see people do what they love and believe in, while not letting nay sayers get in their way. He told us about his upcoming video for his song “Move Mint,” and how it touches on protesting embodying this expression.

“I made this song with the thought of making a room full of people go hard at a bass music show. But with the video, I wanted to do something different that people would really love. We made this video with some of the original thoughts and ideas from the song, but really let the song’s message lead us further, which included a lot of current issues and the problems associated with people’s lack of perspective. It really explores the idea of having to show what you mean through actions, rather than verbally…like people do when they protest. We decided to use the song as a backdrop for a group of people fed up with how things are, and showing how they want to create change.”

As he took that inspiration from his experience of another artist, he hopes that other aspiring artists will use the infinite number of sounds currently available to their benefit as well. Music is an ever-changing landscape, and the creative minds on the rise should use it to advance and take their listeners to new places, rather than recreate what has already been done.

“I’d love to see new folks coming up using the tools that have been laid out for them by all of the amazing talent that this current generation has to offer, and use it as a blueprint and create something completely new with it. We have created the grimy basses, now let’s see what the next people can do with it!”

After all, experiencing new things is what keeps the world turning. Whether we do so by listening to new music, engaging other cultures, or even talking to someone next to you at a show, reaching out and sharing could make this world a happier place.

For Hayden, the opportunities to tour all over the world and be a part of new things have been incredibly fulfilling and he hopes that his fans are able to have that takeaway as well. With no intentions to slow down any time soon, Herobust will continue to climb and create until he is a household name, and hopes to one day release a full rap album— a nod to his beginnings in music.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, it seems that KSHMR was just being nostalgic upon a past release.

@YourEDM @Shaun_Frank @iamDelaneyJane wow thank you, I’m sorry to report that was just me being nostalgic about an old release

KSHMR just teased a new remix of his collaboration with Shaun Frank and it really does sound like a little piece of “Heaven!”

But, wait… haven’t we heard this before? Kind of. KSHMR already remixed the track back in 2015.

The new “Heaven” (KSHMR Remix) sounds more deliberate and mature, using elements from the previous remix but letting Delaney Jane‘s heavenly vocals take the lead. The track builds somewhere between the dark and lightness, as her lyrics ring out:

Even hell would feel like heaven with you
So what can I do?

Of course, the teaser cuts out just before the drop, so we’re going to have to wait to hear the full effect of the song…
