Warpaint Records’ Control Releases “Do Something” & We Can’t Stop Playing It

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 6:23pm

Control is anything but your average bass music producer. The producer’s producer if you may. Control has broken onto the scene by weaving melodies and synths that create a nostalgic feel that any music that is just “right” gives you, with a dubstep interpretation.

His latest single “Do Something” is the ultimate interpretation of this mix of sounds. The tune starts off with almost a classical feel and then breaks into house vibes before dropping into some masterfully designed dubstep synths.  Releasing mostly on Warpaint Records,  Control looks to be in good hands for the foreseeable future.

Breaking free from the narrow confines of “EDM”, Control manages to paint a whole new soundscape, by drawing on blues, rock, metal, and folk influences from his past experiences to create an entirely different sound pallet, bringing the world a new perspective on bass music and beyond.  Finding the deepest darkest areas of your subconscious is the magic in Controls music. The only question is, will you emerge from the other side?

One Reported Dead Of Apparent Heat-Related Issues During EDC 2017

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 2:31pm

One death has been reported from this weekend at EDC due to apparent heat-related issues.

According to local news, “Thousand Oaks, Calif., resident Michael Adam Morse, 35, was reported to have gone into convulsions at the EDC at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and was pronounced deceased at the venue, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.”

Temperatures this weekend in Las Vegas reached peak highs and an excessive heat warning was issued prior to the festival. Morse began to convulse at 3:25am and was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 7:41am at the speedway.

“He never made it to the hospital,” a coroner examiner told News 3. “His cause and manner of death are pending, and it looks like it may take up to two months for the toxicology reports.”

A relative who was not at the festival believes that long lines for water could have contributed to Morse’s death. “We were told the lines were an hour or more to get water,” Linda Marshall told News 3. “They got it fixed for the second night, but we were told the lines were very long the first night.”

EDC had four free water stations at the festival attended by Ground Control volunteers, with water bottles available for purchase from nearly all vendors.

We will update this article as more information becomes available.

KSHMR Releases New Soundpack With 7 Skies On Standalone-Music

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 2:03pm

KSHMR is no stranger to the creation of high quality packs for producers. His previous projects, Sounds of KSHMR Vol 1 & 2, are recognized as some of the highest quality packs on the market and are an integral part of any producers sample collection. Collaborator on Sounds of KSHMR is the esteemed producer and veteran sound designer, 7 SKIES from Standalone-Music – a sample and preset pack company led by 7 SKIES.

The two have paired up once more, this time under Standalone-Music, to bring producers Symphony – Serum Hybrid Orchestra.

Through the sonic fusion of acoustic instrumentation and modern synthesis, Symphony offers a unique palette of sounds that is quite refreshing in a space dominated by FM basses and supersaws – to name a few. The two quite literally recorded real instruments and resynthesized them into wavetables. The result is over 130 presets that take advantage of Serum’s oscillators, filters, FX, and noise generator to emulate a variety of real instruments in a unique way. Clever use of Serum’s LFO allows for infinite note sustain for each instrument – something many samplers simply do not allow. The pack has strong diversity, offering everything from traditional instruments such as pianos, guitars, and strings, to more ethnic instruments like the tumbi, sitar, and shamisen.

Basses:

The pack starts with a stellar collection of bass presets. Each one does a great job of emulating real basses and bass guitars, all sounding rich and realistic. The wide variety of bass styles gave me something for almost every situation; whether I wanted a clean, smooth sound or a heavy, gritty sound, it was all there. Examples of these styles include Fender Bass, Metal Bass, Finger Bass, Jazz Slap, and many more.

Brass/Woodwind:

Everything from trap brass stabs to reggae trumpet leads can be found here, all sounding realistic and clean. One thing I particularly appreciated in this section was the usefulness of the macros on each preset. Many sounds had macros titled “Fast Blow” or “Slow Blow”. These modified the LFO rate to emulate a player blowing into the instrument slower or faster. These intuitively labeled macros added to the overall authenticity of the preset, allowing me to customize the sound to match how a person would play the real instrument.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the sheer selection of sounds in this section. There are so many different trombone and trumpet variations, each one with different characteristics and unique tonal elements. Sounds such as Big Stab or Trap Stab are crunchy hits that can be used to create high impact moments in your tracks, while Trumpet 2 and Sax Low can be used as chords, pads, and leads in harmony.

The woodwind section also had its fair share of instruments. There were quite a number of flute variations such as the Action Flute, Pan Flute, and Jungle Flute. Despite so many flute options, each one has a defining quality that differentiates it from the others and no sound feels redundant.

Drums/Vocals:

I’ve grouped these sections together because they are the smallest parts of the pack. There was not a lot of selection here, but the extensiveness of Symphony’s other areas certainly made up for this. The sounds we are given here are excellent.

The drum section included a few tonal percussion instruments such as timpanis and steel drums. All of them make for good chord plucks or plucky leads. My personal favourites are Timp and Timp2.

The vocal section focused on choir sounds that were quite authentic, as well as some vocal chop leads that we often hear in today’s EDM landscape.

Guitars/Keys/Mallets:

Similar to the basses, the guitar section has a diverse selection of styles that can be used in many different contexts. There are cleaner acoustic and nylon guitar sounds, as well as heavier electric and distorted ones. Banjos, sitars, and ukuleles are also included, further increasing the diversity of this section and offering some ethnic sounds to experiment with.

The keys section mainly focuses on various types of organs and pianos including dance pianos, pump organs, and even an accordion. All the sounds feel full and are especially useful for chords or layering in break sections.

The mallets are quite useful for chords in break sections as well, giving producers plucky, percussive tones to play with. The kalimba and marimba sounds are my personal favourites.

Strings:

This is by far the largest portion of the pack. There are tons of different string instruments and styles to choose from including harps, cellos, violas, vintage ensembles, pop strings, and many more – I was blown away by the number of options. More impressively, there is no drop in quality either. Each string sound is realistic and has distinct characteristics, all sounding full and rich with no post-processing. You can layer them with synths, use them as leads, or even compose full cinematic scores within your tracks.

Worlds:

Finally, the “world” section. Home to an extensive array of ethnic instruments, this section is definitely my favorite part of the pack. There are so many unique instruments that are rarely heard in EDM today, opening the door for innovation and creative experimentation. I had a lot of fun playing with the duduk sounds, as I layered them with other synths to find cool, unique tones. There are many instruments in this section that I have never heard of till now that sound phenomenal and can be used in many different sonic settings.

We already know that KSHMR and 7 SKIES are past collaborators who have created high quality packs, and Symphony is no exception. At $47, the value of this pack is unbelievably good. It is important to note that this preset pack is not meant to replace your real instruments or expensive Kontakt instrument banks. It is, however, a fusion of traditional and modern elements designed to encourage experimentation and creativity.  I highly recommend this pack to any producer who wants to expand their sonic palette and incorporate real instruments into their productions.

New Jersey Police Issue Health Warnings For Strong Ecstacy

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 6:25pm

With festival season on the come up it’s increasingly important you remember to stay safe. Especially in New Jersey and elsewhere on the East Coast, as police have now issued health warnings for a new kind of “IKEA” ecstasy tablet.

The pill is a yellow and blue brick-shaped tablet, similar to the IKEA logo, and has already landed users in the hospital thanks to its “stronger than expected” nature. New Jersey police are urging users to stay away from these pills “in the interest of their health.” As always, if you’ve taken one and/or planning to make sure you’re taking the utmost care in precaution when doing so.

Complaints from EDC Vegas 2017…and Pasquale Rotella’s Response

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 3:49pm

With every major festival comes some major complaints… This year at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, fans are complaining about problems like horrific shuttle services and ridiculous traffic. With these issues, fans are waiting 3-4 hours to get to the festival — leading to several reports of dehydration during wait times.

Right now, for instance, it’s 105 degrees and sunny af. So, while waiting in line is a “first world problem,” dehydration is a real thing this crowd isn’t prepared for.

Insomniac boss Pasquale Rotella has been known to be quite vocal about issues surrounding his events, and this time is no different. Reassuring fans about their importance, Pasquale took to social media to tell the “headliners” of his event that they are important and they’re working on issues.

“We hear you loud and clear on all issues related to traffic, shuttles, and Premiere Parking,” he said. “This is not the level of experience you deserve, and we are working to fix these problems. Keep the lines of communication open. If you have an issue or question, please let us know via social media. We also encourage you to ride share whenever possible, or take advantage of our new, free Park & Ride option.”

We gotta give Pasquale, Insomniac, and EDC in general, major props for addressing problems like this head on. Be safe, and stay hydrated out there in Sin City!

Check out the full post below:

EDC Headliners, we hear you loud and clear on all issues related to traffic, shuttles, and Premiere Parking. This is not the level of experience you deserve, and we are working to fix these problems.

We also encourage you to ride share whenever possible, or take advantage of our new, free Park & Ride option, located at 628 West Craig Road. Park & Ride is first come, first served. The fewer vehicles on the road the better. Please remember to come hydrated—and stay hydrated. Let’s have an amazing night two!

Police Investigation Underway For Body Discovery Near Firefly Music Festival

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 3:25pm

Delaware State Police are currently investigating the discovery of human skeletal remains over the weekend, nearby Firefly Music Festival.

Although little is known at this point, DSP revealed a festival attendee stumbled upon the remains in a wooded area about a half-mile from the festival entrance at Dover International Speedway. There’s no word on if this was casualty was related to anyone directly attending the festival, but given that human remains were found, as opposed to a body, it’s possible the person died a while ago.

One news outlet, Delaware Online, went as far to interview those attending the festival to get their input on the morbid news. It’s a little strange, but given the situation it might be something you’d want to know about as the police investigation is underway.

Kyla Beckvermit, an 18-year-old from Cornwall, New York. told Delaware Online: “I’m extremely surprised. I’m definitely concerned. It would have been nice to know.”

Her friend Gabby Wheeler, a 24-year-old from Wheeler, New York, was more intrigued than alarmed.

“I watch a lot of missing people videos on YouTube. If they said it was skeletal remains, that probably means the body has been there awhile. But, it’s weird that it was so close.”

Anyone with any information in reference to this incident is asked to contact Detective D. Blomquist at (302) 698-8426. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”

Submerse Yourself in Audien x 3LAU – “Hot Water” But, Don’t Drown [LISTEN HERE]

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 2:15pm

Audien x 3LAU – “Hot Water” is finally here and demands your immediate attention, because it’s the best thing we’ve heard in a hot minute!

As the track opens, all ears are on Victoria Zaro as she leads the tune into an immersive, sugary soundscape created by the producers, led by swirling synths and tense percussion. But while her sweet, thoughtful vocals might have you fooled for a moment, the track suddenly erupts into a trap-infused drop with fat bass and simmering snares, making for a beautifully surprising release.

STREAM 3LAU & AUDIEN B2B AT EDC DAY 1 HERE

Coming up for breath, Zaro slightly changes up her lyrics verse-by-verse, chorus-by-chorus, making each moment even more unexpected and fragile…

I’ve been treading in hot water
Yeah, I know I let you down
And I’ll find a way to say I’m sorry
But my time is running out

I’ve been drowning in hot water
Yeah, I know I let you down
And I’ll find a way to say I’m sorry
But my time is running out
But would you le-le-le-le-let me drown
Reach your hand and pull me out
Would you le-le-le-le-le-le-le-le
I’m not perfect

You might not drown, but you’ll certainly get lost in these waters as the song totally takes over with every listen! Audien and 3LAU have totally outdone themselves with this one!

Police Report EDC Day 2 Arrest Numbers & Medical Calls

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 1:16pm

EDC 2017 day 3 is nearly upon us, but before diving back in for the final day of EDM’s biggest American festival police have released day 2 reports.

Numbers are down significantly from day 1, which had 136,000 in attendance. On Saturday the event saw 135,000 in total attendance with 28 felony arrests, 305 medical calls and 77 ejected. 5 were transported to local hospitals and four DUI arrests were made as well.

Despite complaints of extremely heavy traffic on day 1, and a subsequent response from Insomniac ring-leader Pasquale Rotella (see below), it is also being reported that the flow of traffic to EDC on day 2 had eased slightly.

Insomniac Stage Designer Steve Lieberman Talks The Insane Budget for EDC Las Vegas Stages

Sun, 06/18/2017 - 12:53pm

Electric Daisy Carnival is one of the best music festivals in the world for many reasons, but it especially sets the bar high in terms of stage design!

Over the past 20+ years, Steve Lieberman has been the man behind the scenes for Insomniac events, designing and building the industry-leading stages of EDC and beyond. While roughly 400,000 people pour into Las Vegas over the weekend, he’s making sure his lights are shining extra brightly across EDC 2017’s eight stages. Looking back, it’s crazy how much his budget for the stage production has grown…

“I remember even 10 years ago with Insomniac, the (budget) I spent on producing 10 stages for [owner] Pasqualle [Rotella] is probably what we spend on one stage now, and a small stage,” he told Billboard.

“It’s not even close. Our main stage would maybe have 20 to 40 moving lights. Even circuitGROUNDS, for instance, of Las Vegas this year probably has 500 moving lights. That was more than the entire show combined our last year in Los Angeles.”

He’s able to build these cutting edge stages, because of supply and demand. Attendees are willing to pay a pretty penny for an experience they wouldn’t get anywhere else. And, Lieberman and his team are happy to deliver.

“They’re expecting a 400-foot-wide-by-100-foot-tall LED screen, 600 moving lights, flames, water, lasers, CO2, stilt walkers. They’re expecting a hundred-foot-tall owl that talks to you with digital eyes. It’s different, but we have to produce those. We want to produce these things, and it’s actually fantastic that the audience supports these shows the way that they do. It gives us the latitude, the tools and the funding we need to go ahead and make these incredible stages.”

kineticFIELD, cosmicMEADOW, circuitGROUNDS, neonGARDEN, bassPOD, wasteLAND, quantumVALLEY, upside-downHOUSE — as each stage takes on its own life this weekend, we’re appreciative of the Steve Lieberman’s in the world that make the magic happen.

This mega-collaboration is about to be unleashed as rapper Vince Staples’ new album Big Fish Theory drops June 23! The track in discussion, “Yeah Right” features credits from producers Flume and SOPHIE, modern day legend Kendrick Lamar, and eccentric composer/songwriter Kučka, as revealed by Rap Genius.

Aside from his highly successful, Grammy award-winning project Flume, Harley Streten has been pushing the envelope in terms of production through other styles and genres. Recently, he even produced a track for electro pop star Lorde‘s album Melodrama, making his way into mainstream music.

As for his work with Vince Staples and Kučka, it can be best interpreted through the beautifully relentless track “Smoke & Retribution” from Flume’s 2016 sophomore album Skin. While our minds are racing with the possibilities of what this new collabo could sound like — this is the closest thing out there until next Friday!

Police Report 29 Felony Arrests, 118 Ejections, 443 Medical Calls Thus Far at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas

Just one day into Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas 2017 there has already been a notable amount of arrests, medical calls, and hospitalizations.

Police and emergency crews have kept busy… According to the Associated Press via 3 News Las Vegas, police have made 29 felony narcotic arrests and 118 attendees were ejected by Insomniac Productions. There were also 443 medical calls that required six to be transported to area hospitals. (Keep in mind this also means that 437 medical calls were able to be handled on-site successfully.)

Las Vegas police also revealed that no threats have been made against EDC, although organizers urge festival goers to be aware of their surroundings. Ahead of the event, Insomniac founder Pasquale Rotella made safety his #1 concern to provide the most magical experience.

“Safety starts with you” he shared via Facebook. “Recent incidents both here and abroad are reminders that we must all remain vigilant and do everything we can to protect ourselves and each other. Between all our Headliners, staffers, and emergency personnel, we have thousands of watchful eyes. If you see something, say something. Report suspicious activity, packages, persons or vehicles to either festival staff, security or local law enforcement.”

EDC reportedly has hundreds of private security personnel, Las Vegas police officers, Nevada Highway Patrol troopers and other law enforcement officials working at the venue to ensure a safe and secure environment.

Doors open again tonight at 7 PM PDT.
