Portugal. The Man – Feel it Still (Medasin Remix)

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 11:27am

Last week Lido dropped a lovely remix for Portugal. The Man – this week it’s Medasin’s turn. The talented young producer was busy last night opening up for Martin Garrix at a sold-out Bill Graham Civic Center so it’s safe to say that it’s been a pretty damn good 24 hours.

So,has flipped “Feel it Still” into a sexy, lazy day-in-the-park jam that should set your mind at ease from the moment it starts till now. Soulful and sexy, there’s not a single element that’s not tailor-made for the summertime breeze in this delicate new flip.

Mystery Producers KUURO Reveal Identities and Release “Possession”

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 11:15pm

After seven months of pure mystery, the two men behind the bass music project KUURO have finally revealed their identities. Strangely enough, the two faces that were revealed today weren’t so unfamiliar after all. Following some clever sleuthing by Redditor FabulousViking, KUURO confirmed in a Billboard article that they are – in fact – Luke Shipstad (1/2 of Suspect 44) and Jordin Post (aka Juventa).

Though Juventa has been widely known as an avid Monstercat supporter, absolutely nobody expected this. Even within their electro house single “Savage,” KUURO’s general sound hasn’t wandered anywhere close to either Juventa or Suspect 44, which is probably why this reveal is so insanely surprising.

Along with the reveal, KUURO released their single “Possession” today, which is arguably their most heavy-hitting song to date. “Possession” is the duo’s first attempt at moombahton and, well, the result is no less than great. Much like their previous singles, the builds are absolutely epic, but the drop is bigger and wilder than ever before, somewhat reminiscent of Skrillex‘s acclaimed “Red Lips” remix.

Could “Possession” be the track of the year? Listen below and decide for yourself:

1/2 Daft Punk Makes Rare, Unmasked Appearance [WATCH]

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 6:23pm

In a rare, unexpected, appearance the world has witnessed 1/2 of Daft Punk, unmasked in his natural habitat, at Cannes Film Festival in France.

Thomas Bangalter stepped out to join his wife, French actress Élodie Bouchez, for the opening ceremony of the festival yesterday.

As the legendary electronic duo’s public appearances become less and less frequent — especially sans masks — this is the equivalent of seeing a mystical unicorn, or an extraterrestrial space creature, or something.

Watch and be amazed!

Aylen & Goshfather Release The Most Infectious House Anthem Of The Year On Spinnin, “Spread”

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 6:06pm

If you’ve been paying attention to either Aylen or Goshfather’s profile over the past week or so, you’ll know they’ve been super excited about a new song coming out today. We’re happy to present to you “Spread” out now on Spinnin’ Records.

I’m going to go out on a limb right now and call this the most infectious house anthem of the year. There may be “better” or “more successful” songs but damn it if I’m not going to go fucking crazy if I ever hear this in a set. With disco and house leanings, plus vox from Goshfather and an absolutely addictive bassline (those plucks!), this is going to be my song of the summer… of the year!

Goshfather alone has been on a disco tip since the beginning of 2016, so to see it culminate in one of the most fun songs of the year so far is nothing short of exhilarating.

Check out “Spread” below, out now on Spinnin!

Middlelands Will Not Return To Texas RenFest In 2018

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 5:28pm

By all metrics, this year’s first Middlelands festival was a resounding success. Unfortunately, the residents surrounding the Texas RenFest weren’t as pleased.

According to local news outlet KHOU, neighbors voiced their concerns about Middlelands Thursday during a town hall meeting.

Texas Renaissance Festival general manager Terre Albert said in a statement:

“TRF is always looking for new ways to bring fun and magic to the Houston area, which is why we partnered with Insomniac, C3 Events and Live Nation, to create the Middlelands music festival on our grounds. Middlelands was a great success and brought over 60,000 people to the area from all over the country and the world. However, after a meeting with executive leadership and based on Texas Renaissance Festival’s overall mission, we have made the decision to not move forward in hosting the event again.”

It’s not clear or known for sure whether or not Insomniac and C3 signed a multi-year contract with Texas RenFair, though it is likely. So the outcome of this cancellation could have more far reaching consequences we’ve yet to see.

Either way, there are other Ren Fair sites in Texas, such as Scarborough, which is actually closer to Dallas than Todd Mission.


UPDATE: Pasquale Rotella, founder of Insomniac Events, has issued an official statement.

We were very surprised and disappointed by the decision announced by the Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF) to no longer host Middlelands (MDL) at the Texas Renaissance Festival Fair Grounds. From the beginning, MDL producers set out to create a safe and enjoyable experience for both attendees and residents in the surrounding neighborhoods, with hopes to stimulate the growing local economy. Contrary to news reports, the producers of MDL traveled to Houston for the Town Hall meeting but were subsequently told it was cancelled by TRF officials. We fully appreciate the beauty of Todd Mission and the nearby areas, and were prepared to implement residents’ feedback in order to transform MDL into a valued community event. An astounding 66,000 guests attended the inaugural MDL festival, with many sharing their positive experiences. To our fans, rest assured we plan to return.

Your EDM Premiere: DiRTY RADiO – Champagne Bubbles ft. 528

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 1:39pm

Weird music is just so… enticing. When I can’t understand why something sounds good, or sounds the way it does, it flips a switch in me and I can’t stop listening until I figure it out or get so tired of the song that I never want to hear it again. Usually the latter ends up happening first.

DiRTY RADiO’s new single “Champagne Bubbles” with 528 is that particular kind of weird that has made collectives like PC Music so successful. It’s that accessible kind of weird, the kind where you think to yourself, “Yeah, I couldn’t show this to my parents, but my 6 year old niece would love it.” Weird, right? Exactly.

But it has a definitely appeal to it – weird production, hip hop vocals, that juxtaposition of male and female voices with a slightly recognizable house beat and strange samples, they all work in tandem to create one highly palatable track.

“Champagne Bubbles” will only be available on iTunes next Friday, May 27, but you can listen to it on Spotify and below right now.

Your EDM Premiere: Macifif x Zaena – See You Again

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 1:25pm

One of my favorite parts of this job is receiving music from artists I’ve never heard of. Macifif and Zaena are two names unfamiliar to me, but their song “See You Again” is definitely going to be on repeat for me over the weekend.

It’s even better when the song is as amazing as this one, bringing back strong feelings of nostalgia from 2012-2013 and the heyday of melodic dub. Those soft female vocals against sultry and deep bass notes… it sends chills down my spine. The early days of Seven Lions, Illenium, Adventure Club, Blackmill, all of the artists who really made melodic dub what it is today, I can hear all of them in “See You Again.”

If you’re looking for a new song to listen to on a Friday, make it this one.

Pierce Fulton – Better Places feat. NVDES

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 1:22pm

The third single from Pierce Fulton’s debut album has just arrived. “Better Places” features the vocals of NVDES, a frequent collaborator and friend of Fulton’s. Fulton taps into that indie-folk vibe for the newest single, once again showing his versatility and musicality as a producer and artist.

This tune gives me a great feeling and undoubtedly will take you to some “Better Places” as well. It’s one of those tunes you crank loudly while dancing around in your car, in your house with you socks on, or outside with friends. As things heat up, this is a perfect tune to accompany your outdoor adventures. This will surely be the tune of the summer with it’s catchy melodies and addicting hooks.

Take a listen to the new single below:

Alan Walker Drops New Song “Tired” With Gavin James

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 12:54pm

Alan Walker has been on one in 2017, releasing track after track. And he’s just released his latest, a new one with Gavin James entitled “Tired.”

It’s hard to deny that James completely steals the show in this song, with his vocals being placed front and center for the vast majority of the track. The drop acts more like a chorus, giving this “track” more of a “song” feel, in the traditional sense.

It’s immediately different than songs like “Faded” or “Alone,” presenting more of a singer/songwriter side to the producer that we haven’t really heard before. It’s also distinctly less “EDM” than his previous singles.

Whatever your preference, give “Tired” a shot below.

Your EDM Premiere: Tchami – Adieu (Chace Remix) [Confession]

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 12:43pm

When it comes to house music, there is no taste-maker as relevant as Tchami. With everything he does, from releasing a record on his label Confession, to playing songs in his sets, he lets the world know about good house music.

After releasing his latest single, “Adieu,” on the aforementioned Confession, Tchami has given a rising star the opportunity to remix it. Chace, a talented producer hailing from Shanghai, has spun “Adieu” right around. With the original being very grandiose and used mostly as a set-closer, Chace has turned the track into a record for peak times on the dance floor.

This remix truly shines in the first drop, where Chace takes Tchami’s original bass line, funked it up a bit, and turned up the energy. Combined with the use of a brilliant call and response between a vocal chop from the original sample and a guitar lick, you can’t help but dance in whatever setting you’re in.

After a short yet interesting break, Chace takes us around for round 2 of the remix. Sticking with the vibes of the original with this drop, Chace keeps the same grooving drums from the first drop but spices up the bass line of the original with a completely different sound.

A wonderful remix of the masterpiece that is “Adieu,” Chaces debut on Confession is a tasteful take on the original and sure to be heard on many dance floors in the coming months.

Purchase a copy of Chace’s remix of “Adieu” here and listen below!

Martin Garrix Reveals Release Date Of His Collab With Troye Sivan, “There For You”

Thu, 05/18/2017 - 5:32pm

We know when to admit we were wrong (though it was just a guess). Rather than our initial hypothesis of May 19, the new collaboration between Martin Garrix and Troyhee Sivan that was debuted at Coachella will release next Friday, May 26.

Martin originally said that the track was dropping “mid-May,” leading to our original guess, but things happen and songs either get pushed back, or artists get misquoted. Either way, we still have another 8 days to wait until we hear this collaboration in full.

Ultra Music Festival is Coming to Mexico

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 7:51pm

Ultra Music Festival is one of the largest festival series in the world, showcasing some of the best talent in dance music across the globe. After announcing a slew of new markets they’re taking the festival to, fans in Mexico have something to look forward to.

Taking place over October 6th-7th of 2017, Ultra Mexico will take place just outside of Mexico City, the country’s capital. Sure to include the usual headliners, Ultra Mexico will also play host to the Resistance Stage, a deeper, more underground stage for those with a more tech-y taste.

Adding Mexico to the already announced Australia, China, Ibiza, and India, one can assume Ultra is looking to tap into every market possible.

Tickets go on sale May 31st.

Fans Will Have To Empty Their Bank Accounts To Attend Pretty Lights’ New Festival

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 7:44pm

News of Pretty Lights’ new destination resort festival had fans buzzing. But now, they’ll be checking between the seat cushions for loose change because this festival costs a lot. While prices for Fyre Festival reached upwards of $250,000, Island Of Light won’t set you back nearly as much, but it’s more than you think.

Tickets for the event are available now with a down payment… because a down payment is completely necessary. The cheapest package for the event will run you a cool $4,000, though the amenities provided do make the purchase worth it in the end: “an all-inclusive resort experience, including their lodging at the hotel, their concert ticket, buffet style meal options, drinks, and ground transportation between the San Juan airport and El Conquistador. In addition, guests will receive discounted rates on local adventure excursions, resort amenity access and the high end sit down restaurants on site.”

The most expensive option for an 8-person package will cost $21,120.

All of this for four days at a resort in Puerto Rico, and it doesn’t sound too outlandish. However, the question then becomes, who is this festival being marketed to? Surely, the average Pretty Lights fan doesn’t have thousands laying around waiting for such an opportunity; not when you could pay $60 plus the price of a flight to see him perform at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado.

No doubt that hundreds of people will purchase tickets to this event – and unlike Fyre, there’s a legit resort involved and not some disaster relief huts and unpaid volunteers. That being said, will the vibe on the island be like something Pretty Lights fans would want, with opulence and greed? It remains to be seen.

Your EDM Premiere: Feed Me – Starcrash [mau5trap]

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 2:46pm

Feed Me is back with mau5trap for the first time since 2012, and he’s back in a big, big way. Billboard already premiered the title track from the EP two days ago, and now we’re here to bring you our favorite track from the release.

Yeah, it would have been easier to pick up the Kill The Noise collab for social media points, but “Starcrash” has that raw and engaging Feed Me sound that we fell in love with back at Feed Me’s Big Adventure so long ago. Even better than that, it has that twinge of electro and techno to it to make it all the more salacious.

The song starts out with a rolling bassline and loop, briefly interposing some heavily textured synths to break up the monotony. As the track begins to crescendo, you get a feeling of impending awesomeness and that feeling is not betrayed.

Feed Me’s Existential Crisis is out this Friday, May 19. But you can listen to “Starcrash” right now below.

Illenium Responds to Criticism on Reddit With Insightful Comment

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 2:41pm

Illenium has quickly become one of EDM’s greatest sensations, rising from small up-and-comer to near-headlining artist in only a few years. One big criticism against him, though, claims he wears his influences a bit too on his sleeve and his productions too closely resemble work from Seven Lions, Sound Remedy and others. Such a critique became the topic of a popular post on Reddit‘s EDM subreddit, and a surprising individual’s contribution quickly rose as the top comment on the thread.

None other than Illenium on his personal Reddit account chimed in on the post, and as opposed to lashing out against the OP, Illenium used the opportunity to give users intimate insight into how he became a producer, what inspires him and how he feels knowing that his music has gone on to influence others. His full comment below:

Comment from discussion So this Illenium guy….

Illenium isn’t the first artist to post directly to a social media thread critiquing their own music, but his post does offer a unique perspective from the musician’s side of the discussion. We hope his passion continues to drive him to produce more great tracks and inspire others.

Your EDM Interview: Metrik Talks About His Massive Summer Remix of Bobby Tank’s “Catalyze”

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 2:06pm

DnB producer Metrik, given name Tom Mundell, has just come off a huge tour of the United States, Australia and New Zealand, and he’ll be back in the U.S. shortly for EDC. His tour was off the back of his most recent album, LIFE/THRILLS, but he’s also put out a massive single for the summer festival season, a remix of the pop-heavy “Catalyze” by Bobby Tank. Your EDM caught up with Metrik as he was catching his breath from touring and before he starts his rounds again with Hospital to talk about the single, his style and what inspires him in drum and bass and music in general.

You’ve done a lot of remixes of pop tracks and have a great way of mixing unique beats with pop and groove. How do you decide what kinds of tracks you want to remix?

In most cases my choice of remixes are born out of a respect of the original artist. DJ Fresh and Eric Prydz are two of my main production influences so having the opportunity to remix them made a lot of musical sense and was also a big honor. Taking something from the pop domain and bringing it into the drum & bass world is always a fun challenge. My music is centered around hooks and pop is full of them so those remixes are often some of the most interesting projects to take on.

Similar question, how did you decide you wanted to make a remix of Bobby Tank’s track?

I’ve been a long time admirer of his music so it’s been awesome working together. I reached out to Bobby and we got chatting music and the potential of doing a collab. We discovered we’d been mutual fans so the ball started to roll very quickly. I invited him to do a remix of my single ‘We Got It’ feat. Rothwell which he smashed out of the park. In return he asked me to remix “Catalyze” which I gladly accepted. I loved the track. I love synthwave and my music has a lot of that vibe going on already and that track encapsulated all the things I was feeling in music at that point. The track has a distinctly 80’s edge backed up with some amazing soul chords and layered melodies. It sounded like the same pool of influences for my album “LIFE/THRILLS”, so it was a really creative and exciting remix to work on. 

What draws you to the style of DNB you produce, infusing sort of technical beats with groove or more melodic sounds? 

Growing up with a lot of dance music throughout the 90’s and the synth music of the 80’s through my parents, my music generally leans towards the more melodic and euphoric. I’m a fan of house and techno but I was also big into rock/metal in my teens so a bit of that harder edged ethic comes through in my music. I’m big into cinema so I like to capture some of that drama and emotion from the film world and inject it into the music. Essentially my music is all about atmosphere and feeling combined with powerful drops. Dance music is nothing without groove so there has to be a strong feeling of groove and funk in my tracks. I often achieve this with my melodies or the basslines. 

On “Catalyze”, the main DNB beat is clean and fun but also very techy. How did you decide to put that beat together and what about the original song do you think made it work?

I wanted the drop to be heavy hitting in the club but also maintain some of the contemporary minimalism of modern drum & bass. The drop is very simple. I sliced up some sounds from the original track and rearranged them into a high energy groove. I created a bespoke kit specifically for this track to fit the aesthetic of the music yet at the same time hitting the right frequencies for a high power club mix. 

The intro is quite long in respect to the rest of the track on “Catalyze”. What was the reason for this? Did you want to mix styles or have it seem like two separate tracks?

I tried creating a more truncated arrangement but there was so much musical gold in the original song that I wanted to keep. I kept a lot of Bobby’s synth work and vocals but used typical Metrik soundscape to re-frame the musical parts to give it more of my own identity. I imagined a Madeon-esque hands in the air moment with the big chords and synths so that worked very nicely to create the drama leading into the drop. I think I went through three different versions of this remix until I got it right! It originally started out as a liquid roller but it wasn’t quite inspiring me so hence the dancefloor mix was born. 

What inspires you most about drum and bass?

The futurism and the diversity. Drum & bass continues to inspire me, year after year. I’m so grateful to have a platform on BBC Radio 1 to represent the genre that I love the most. If you want to hear what most inspires me, then lock into my show and it will give you a snapshot of what I love.

New projects/albums coming out?

I’m hard at work on my next batch of music. I’ve just come back from touring USA, Australia and New Zealand and I’m the most inspired I’ve ever been. I feel like I’ve found my own sound and owned it with my most recent album LIFE/THRILLS, so I’m really excited to continue in this vein and take Metrik to the next level. There’s also some very exciting collabs in the pipeline. Watch this space!

Anything else you’d like to say to the fans?

Thank you to everyone who came out to my recent shows in the United States.  I’m very excited to be returning for EDC Las Vegas this Summer. See you soon!

Metrik will be touring heavily throughout the summer throughout the UK and Europe, with a stop at EDC Vegas and ending with Hospitality in the Park. A full list of tour dates is available on Metrik’s website, and his latest LP, “LIFE/THRILLS” can be streamed or purchased here.

Dillon Francis Nominates His Favorite Taco Bell Item, Spice Girl, & More

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 1:58pm

Dillon Francis is absolutely our favorite class clown in EDM. So of course when you put him in any remotely funny situation, he runs with it and makes it even more hilarious with his own style of goofishness (not a word, but it fits).

“The GOAT Show” is a running series from Complex Australia while has guests choose the “greatest of all time” between a set of topics. For Dillon, he chose what to order at Taco Bell, which Sesame Street character he wants to hug, the ideal Ikea meal, and which Spice Girl he’s crushed on since he was 15 years old (hint: it’s the red head).

Check out the video below.
