Deadmau5 Thinks The Chainsmokers Are Shit. In Other News, Deadmau5 Is Canadian.

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 2:40pm

Master of all things troll and one of our favorite Canadians deadmau5 had to voice his opinion on The Chainsmokers once again yesterday. In a completely unsolicited volley of tweets against the duo, deadmau5 stated that they were genuinely shit. Of course, we never ask for deadmau5 tweets, they just sort of end up in our laps whether we want them or not…

sorry, i just made the terrible mistake of listening to a chainsmokers song. at least the first 6 seconds of it. i was trying to do somethin

Father Sues EDC Promoters Insomniac & Live Nation After Son’s Death In 2015

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 1:43pm

Nicholas Tom, 24, died in 2015 while attending EDC Las Vegas. The official cause of death was ruled to be intoxication from ecstasy a month later. Now, Tom’s father has filed a lawsuit against EDC promoters Insomniac and Live Nation for wrongful death and negligence.

Tom’s father, Terry, is claiming that there were “scarce and understaffed medical facilities.” He further claims that the volunteers on site had little medical experience, and “insufficient access to water.”

The health and safety of its headliners is Insomniac’s #1 concern when creating festivals. There are always plenty of water stations available to attendees and trained, medical professionals are always on call at all times of night.

In 2016, Insomniac created a full, functioning hospital at EDC Orlando, staffed with ten doctors and more than 100 medical volunteers.

We’re awaiting a comment from Insomniac on the lawsuit.

Watch A Full Arena Liveset From Lost Frequencies – “Less Is More”

Wed, 06/21/2017 - 12:41pm

While not the be-all, end-all mark of an artist’s talent, the ability to sell out a massive arena is surely indicative of their popularity and admiration from fans. For Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies who sold out the Lotto Arena in his home country, his fans are everything.

The set was recorded in its entirety, from the amazing introduction to the impeccable climax, surrounded by thousands of his biggest fans.

From the modern classic status of ‘Are You With Me’, to an eclectic edit of ‘All Or Nothing’ to open the show, Lost also took us on a journey of House classics, big-room bangers and previews of new material. Joined by a host of live vocalists and collaborators, Lost Frequency also revealed his new collaboration with drum n bass connoisseur Netsky, a dubstep-leaning track perfect for the summer months, guitar lines and an ethereal vocal flowing throughout to merge both artists unique flair, as “Here With You” gets set to light up the speakers June 30th via Armada.

As Lost Frequencies gears up as one of the biggest acts of the summer hitting up Tomorrowland, Exit Festival, Ushuaia & Hï Ibiza, Parookaville, Untold and more, check out the full HD livestream of Lost Frequencies full ‘Less Is More’ arena spectacle below:

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 8:59pm

An Aussie group called Parcels just randomly dropped a single co-written and produced by none other than Daft Punk.

The single, titled “Overnight,” features many of the same sharp, distinguished production techniques and sounds you might find on Random Access Memories, giving it a bright, vibrant sound. It has a swagger and funky quality to it, for sure.

Unfortunately, the track isn’t yet available in the US on Spotify, but you can listen below on YouTube.

For now, you can still hear a preview of “Overnight” via iTunes here.

Insomniac Releases Statement Following Man’s Death At EDC Las Vegas

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 5:08pm

35-year-old Michael Adam Morse was pronounced dead on the Las Vegas Speedway early Saturday morning, following the first day of Electric Daisy Carnival. Initial cause of death is believed to be heat-related, but an official coroner’s and toxicology report are still pending.

Relatives of Morse believe that long water lines at the festival were partly to blame, though Insomniac claims over 100 free water access points throughout the course of the festival, with waits no longer than 10 minutes.

Read Insomniac’s full statement below:

“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.”

Teenager Dies After Taking High-Potency “IKEA” Ecstasy Tablet

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 2:07pm

Sadly, even after UK police issued a health warning for a new kind of super potent ecstasy, in the form of yellow and blue “IKEA” tablets — a teenager died after taking the drug over the weekend.

According to The Mirror, 18-year-old Kyle Pringle, of St. Helier on the island of Jersey died (pending toxicology reports) after consuming part of a ‘rogue batch’ that has hospitalized many people.

Police have made three arrests thus far in connection to the “IKEA” tablets, and seized a large quantity of the drugs.

A States of Jersey Police spokeswoman said, “We strongly advise members of the public not to take these tablets in the interests of their health.”

“Anyone who does take the tablets and becomes unwell are urged to seek medical attention through their GP or in an emergency, attend at the Accident & Emergency Department.”

Your EDM Premiere: EARSLEY – Endeavor [Free Download]

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 1:29pm

First-time premieres on Your EDM are always a special occasion, as we get to showcase new and exciting music, as well as the artist gaining significant exposure. We’re happy to premiere for the first time a new song by LA-producer EARSLEY, called “Endeavor.”

Earsley sang and played guitar on the track himself, a blend of rock and future bass elements with just a twinge of early-2000s emo thrown into the mix. “Endeavor” has a surprising amount of depth between the lyrics and the interplay of synths and rhythm. Even the vocal chops, typically a maligned and overused element in songs these days, are used to brilliant effect in a melodic fashion.

There’s also something to be said about the vocal processing and Earsley’s own performance in the track; he’s staying within his vocal range, that is to say, he’s not overextending himself or ruining his own vocal identity by trying to hit notes he can’t hit and then just autotuning. It shows an intelligence and restraint in production that is worthy of mention.

Check out “Endeavor” below and grab a free download if you dig it.

WATCH: Fan Jumps On Stage To Take Selfie With Martin Garrix

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 1:01pm

A Martin Garrix fan at Belsonic Music Festival nearly had his dreams come true when he hopped on stage to take a selfie with the DJ, but his plans were foiled by security before he could ever assume the natural selfie pose.

We don’t know who this fan is, but Garrix certainly found it amusing enough during his set as he saw the young man grabbed by security and forcibly dragged off stage.

See the photo gallery and video below, courtesy of Belfast Telegraph.

Jaja Bu – Sweetness

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 10:47am

Jaja Bu delivers on his promise; “Sweetness” is one of the sweetest things I’ve heard this summer. The Los Angeles based producer has created a gem of an R&B tune combining alluring guitar tones with analog synths and fluid percussion. The track walks the line of the emotions and lust he feels for someone, showing us his vulnerability as a person and as an artist.

Growing up playing the drums it makes sense that Jaja Bu’s debut single is rhythm heavy. Making use of smooth sounding plush synths alongside a wispy vocal is a perfect combination to make this R&B hit stay in your head. Throwing in little guitar noodles as fillers gives the track more depth and emotion, mirroring the emotionally weighted lyrics. As the chorus comes in, Jaja Bu explores some elements of trap as the synths become more percussive and bigger sub-heavy kicks cut through.

Check out the tune below:

Tristam – Bone Dry [Monstercat]

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 4:25am

Every record label – both major and independent – has fan-favorited artists. Revealed has Dannic & Dyro, Seeking Blue has Illenium, Spinnin’ has – or at least, had – Martin Garrix… The list goes on and on. With Monstercat, it’s no secret that the UK mastermind Tristam is the bearer of this crown. Ever since his debut with the label in 2011, Tristam has stayed faithful to Monstercat and has rightfully racked up millions of YouTube views on just about every track he’s put out. With his releases being so few and far between, Tristam pushing new music out is always a treat.

After nearly a year since “Before We Fade,” Tristam is back on Monstercat once again for a very special occasion. “Bone Dry” is the third single off the label’s upcoming Rocket League x Monstercat compilation, which means Tristam’s music will be appearing in the wacky soccer video game starting in July, joined by the likes of major producers like Slushii and Vicetone.

When it comes to the song itself, “Bone Dry” does well with some serious fan service, but also slightly steps outside Tristam’s bounds. Long-time fans will know Tristam for his vocal-fueled bass music, but this is a very different musician than the one who gave the world “Follow Me.”

More than ever before, “Bone Dry” sees Tristam diving headfirst into pop-influenced EDM, with its clear future bass influences heavy use of vocal chops. The last couple years have definitely prepared fans for a much more radio-friendly Tristam, but the track still comes off as a bit of a surprise. Could Tristam have his first radio hit on his hands? Only time will tell.

Tue, 06/20/2017 - 1:59am

So I just got back home from EDC and I think I’ve heard enough trap bangers for several lifetimes over. Thankfully, when I opened up my email inbox I found this gem which was the exact opposite of that thus making it the perfect record to wind down my flight with.

“Lover” by Swedish house producer Lucas Estrada is an emotional ballad that’s perfect for any late nights or relaxing playlist. With lush vocals from Stu Gabriel and a catchy guitar hook, “Lover” is the perfect tune to close out your weekend with.

Your EDM Premiere: Run DMT is Back With That New “Voodou”

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 10:43pm

There have been a lot of murmurings lately about dubstepper extraordinaire Run DMT and what he’s got up his sleeve, especially with festival season now officially in full gear. Though largely on hiatus over the past couple of years, the Texas-based artist also known as John Robbins has recently started posting podcasts on the Kill Your Ego Soundcloud page, and publications have made references to a new release in the works.

“Voodou”, a single off Run DMT’s forthcoming album drops tomorrow, June 20 and for many dubstep fans it’s finally a confirmation of life, or, given the title, confirmation of “un-death”. The track features vocalist Jacq as well as newcomer MC Knat Turner in a prolonged intro which belies the truly massive first drop. If you ever wondered what voodoo sounded like as a bassline, Run DMT has more than answered that question with what can only be called a teeth-grinding, screwy chugger of a bassline. By “screwy”, it definitely sounds like a rusty screw being forced out of its threads, possibly by a mad shaman unleashing his or her zombies on the planet.

There’s an interesting break in the track after that bassline spends a few minutes confusing temporal bones where the veteran rapper Zeale adds his own verse and the beat is accompanied by a haunting, calliope-inspired piano melody. This second break then spins into the bassline again which, while not actually faster, has added synth progressions to make it sound like it’s as fast as the verse Zeale just dropped. It toggles back and forth between the “slower” and “faster” basslines before the track ends quite abruptly with a sort of video game-style “level up” sample. It’s wild stuff from Run DMT, and dubstep fans will quickly remember what they were missing from this weird and wonderful artist, as well as looking forward to the new album, which drops in August.

“Voodou” releases on Kill Your Ego June 20, but streaming and buy links are already up on Amazon and Juno download.

Your EDM Review: Leaf/Subtle Mind – “Ayahuasca” EP

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 10:04pm

For EDM fans not familiar with Leaf, he is a producer based in San Francisco who creates trippy, minimal broken beat music. His new EP, Ayahuasca, does not disappoint for fans looking for that style of experimental music, but said three-track EP also includes a healthy dose of trap-style broken beat, with more of a jam vibe.

The EP’s title track, as previously stated, is a trippy, minimal track with a tribal-influenced trap-based beat. It lives up to its name, as it takes the listener on a bit of a mental journey, with lots of swelling, drifting synth samples. Its melody, such as it is, winds in and out of the drums as all the other synth samples go flying by. It would be a great track to listen to during a meditation, as the beats are almost binaural in nature, but due to the creepy/trippy vocal samples, it may not be great to listen to before bed.

There are two mixes of the other track, “Fog” on the Ayahuasca EP. The original by Leaf is quite different from “Ayahuasca”, almost to the point of not being recognizable as the same artist. At least, that is, until the beat comes in. Said beat is more on the hip hop side of the slow broken beat spectrum, but there are some syncopated snares peppered throughout as well. The melody is again very minimal, but more liquid than dark, with a major rather than a minor key and a pretty, recognizable-to-old school-breakbeat-fans female vocal sample. In fact, there are a number of old school breakbeat and house samples in this track, including a vacuum synth and some of the beat breaks. It would be interesting to see if Leaf actually re-created these sounds manually or used a sample pack.

The remix of “Fog” is by Subtle Mind, who is possibly a better-known producer than Leaf. He takes “Fog” in a completely different direction, making it much more EDM-inspired, but still keeping its old school rave bones. The beat here is a much more robust dubstep beat, and since it’s at the end of the EP, it will be quite surprising to hear the change in tone. It’s still trippy and still minimal, but the style and almost complete 180 shift beat-wise will leave the listener appreciating the versatility of the tracks Leaf makes.

Ayahuasca released this past Friday, June 16 on Badman Studios. The playlist below links directly to the streaming and purchase page.
