Warning: 100% Pure Cocaine Mix Hits Streets of UK, Linked to Deaths & Multiple Overdoses

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 8:57pm

Eastbourne Police have issued a warning about 100% pure cocaine that has potentially killed 2 people since April and led to multiple overdoses.

Detective Inspector Neil Ralph said, “Taking drugs in any form is dangerous particularly when the user does not know the purity of the drug.” But, the “bad batch” of pure cocaine isn’t the only issue, as the UK is also experiencing a spike in potency levels of heroin and molly for example.

Drugs were responsible for over 3,600 deaths in the U.K. in 2015 and research suggests age of user is also a key factor in these record levels, according to Complex.

The only way to be safe is to not do drugs at all. But, if you must, educate yourself on potency levels and be careful out there.

Mura Masa & Charli XCX – One Night (Khamsin Remix) [Free DL]

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 8:14pm

French producer Khamsin has been lying low lately since his Slow Hours side project has started to pick up some steam. Last week he finally made his triumphant return to his solo project with a banging new remix for Mura Masa & Charli XCS’s “One Night.”

“One Night” was originally a cute-sy whimsical Mura Masa tune, but Khamsin manages to transform the record into a true banger using a subtle horn-driven intro that quickly ramps up thanks to some thrilling rock elements before transitioning towards a wistful outro. Definitely, a must-listen for any Mura Masa fans and a must-download too if you ask me.

Your EDM Premiere and Q&A: Gridlok on His Blackout LP, “Z3R0 H0U2”

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 8:00pm

Longtime U.S. producer and champion for the North American drum and bass scene, Gridlok, recently moved to Amsterdam to be closer to the European scene and sound, and he’s already making huge moves, most notably his forthcoming LP, Z3R0 H0U2 on Blackout Records. Move or no move, it’s a huge step for an American producer to make this type of crossover, but he’s clearly not forgetting his roots or his U.S. friends on this exciting album, due out May 26. As Your EDM premieres “Gunrunner,” a collab track with fellow American producer, Grid was nice enough to do a little Q&A about the album, his move and this very interesting time in drum and bass.

Z3R0 H0U2 is your first LP release on Blackout. What was that conversation like?

Yes, this is my first release for the label. We have actually been talking about doing something for quite a while now, since before the label launched.  Now that I’m living in Amsterdam I felt it was important to get more involved with the scene here locally and I just love how they are doing things, so the timing is right.

Did you come up with tracks for the LP that you felt would work well specifically for Blackout, or did you have their style in mind? If not, how did you pick the tracks that ended up being on the album?

When I started working on the album I actually had a totally different plan for it. The tracks were made with a bit more of a Virus, Violence, P51 kind of sound which is pretty much what I’m about, I was thrilled that Blackout was open to the direction I’m going in musically because admittedly I’m a bit left field compared to what they normally represent. As for picking the tracks, building an album is just as much an artform as writing the music itself. It’s pretty important to me for there to be a journey there so the track listing ended up how it is as an attempt to serve that purpose.

How do you see your style having evolved from the early days of Project 51? Can you still hear some of your old style in these new tracks?

I’m not satisfied if things aren’t evolving. I’m always trying new things to keep myself interested. At the end of the day though there are certain aesthetics and vibes that I’m drawn towards which I think thread themselves through everything I’ve done. That will continue with “Z3R0 H0U2”.

Was there a theme for this album? Did you want to make it a continuous play style of LP, or do you see it more as a compilation of bangers?

There is a vibe I’m trying to get across with this project. It’s definitely not just a compilation of bangers. With that said most the other LP projects I’ve done were much more methodically thought out basically writing from the beginning to the end and fitting everything together. On this one I just spent 3 or 4 years writing tunes in the vein of what I was going for and then widdled away until I ended up with what we have now.

Tell us about the song we’re premiering with Hive. How did the collaboration process look there? What was the ultimate goal when you were working on “Gunrunner” together?

Hive has been a long time friend and studio partner.  He had the basic idea for Gunrunner and played it for me. I was instantly into what I was hearing and asked him if he was going to finish it. To my delight Hive offered that I take the helm and we turn it into a collaboration. All of the other music we’ve worked on together we’ve pretty much started together and been in the same room together. I think this one is interesting because you can hear both our distinct styles in the track really clearly since we each had our own time to work on it. I’m more than happy to share it with all of you!

What are some artists and styles you’re really excited about at the moment?

As far as drum and bass goes I think we are in a really healthy spot right now. Tons of good music coming out on a consistent basis as well as plenty of high quality events. I guess you could say I’m just excited in general to see where things go next.

Any gigs coming up that you’re really excited about?

The summer schedule is full with some great parties and festivals. I can’t really narrow it down to one event or even a few! Generally speaking I’m feeling the vibes in the European scene and I’m just happy to be a part of it.

Anything else to say to the fans and DNB heads?

Drum and bass will never die!

The full Z3R0 H0U2 LP will be out on Blackout Recordings on May 26.

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 7:15pm

The wait is over. From the same guy who brought you Mr. Carmack‘s “Pay For What” (Trombone Flip) — Alexander Lewis — comes another brass heavy trap treat!

He’s been dropping his charged up Kaaris x Mr. Carmack – “Chargé” edit during sets, and now it’s finally an official release. The producer shared some insight via Facebook today:

It’s finally out. Never intended to tease something so much, or wait this long to put something out, but I was never really sure about finishing it, was just something I loved to play at my shows. After after about a year, it caught on and felt it was only fair to finish and release. So, with upmost respect to Kaaris and Carmack’s version (with my twist on it), this ones for you all. Sorry for the wait!

It was well worth it.

His other Mr. Carmack remix racked up over 2.4 million plays on SoundCloud, and will probably never get old.

HARD Red Rocks 2017 Lineup Released With Dillon Francis

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 2:55pm

Well, now we know why Dillon Francis won’t be appearing at HARD Summer for the first time since 2011… turns out he’s headlining HARD’s annual show at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater with DJ Mustard, Destructo, AC Slater, Wax Motif and Kittens.

As far as HARD Red Rocks lineups go… this one is just a tad underwhelming. With the past three years featuring lineups like Nero, Dillon Francis, Rudimental, and Dog Blood, Porter Robinson (live), The Glitch Mob and RL Grime, SAVOY, Keys N Krates (2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively), it seems like Gary is counting on Dillon to push most of the ticket sales.

Certainly, you could call Dillon Francis’ appearance in Colorado infrequent, as his last show at Red Rocks was at Dead Rocks in 2015, and he played one Colorado festival last year. So for any Colorado fans who aren’t keen on traveling out of state, this is a major opportunity for them.

Tickets are on sale this Friday.

Your EDM Premiere: Lolahiko – Everleigh (Things Past Remix)

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 2:02pm

Things Past fka Watereta just put out this brilliantly emotional and melodic remix for “Everleigh” by Lolahiko. If you’ve never heard of any of these people, that’s fine, neither had I before I was sent this remix for review. But now having listened to this remix on repeat, I have a feeling I’m going to be giving them both a lot more attention in my listening habits over the next week.

Speaking of this remix specifically, the vocals become the center of the remix, with a simple drum pattern and perfectly accompanying bassline. This liquid drum & bass tune is certainly a phenomenal effort from Things Past and we’re looking forward to what else he can do in the future.

Check it out below!

Tomorrowland 2017 Will Feature Over 1000 Incredible Artists & 69 Stage Hosts

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 1:36pm

Tomorrowland has always done it the biggest… but with the two-weekend format returning this year, it difficult to imagine a more hard-working and probably stressed out team than the one in Boom, Belgium.

2017’s Tomorrowland will feature a truly staggering number of artists, with over 1000 confirmed across the two weekends. Additionally, the festival will welcome 69 stage hosts from the likes of Martin Garrix’s STMPD RCRDS to Drumcode and Monstercat, and individual artists like Belgium’s Netsky, and Dave Clarke.

Tomorrowland 2017, Boom – Belgium: 21-22-23 & 28-29-30 July 2017
Check www.tomorrowland.com for all information on the program of Amicorum Spectaculum.

Some musical trivia:

  • Carl Cox celebrated his 50th birthday at Tomorrowland in 2012. This year, the legendary Carl Cox will be 55 on 29 July.
  • On 28 July 2013, Armin van Buuren began his set on the Tomorrowland stage just after having become the father to a son. Exactly four years later, Armin will appear on A State of Trance. Armin has even more in store for Tomorrowland’s Amicorum Spectaculum. Not a new baby this time, but a unique collaboration that he will be announcing soon.
  • Netsky will be appearing for the third time at Tomorrowland. On 24 July 2010, together with Murdock feat. Quest One MC, he laid down a blazing set at De Schorre. In 2014, he did it again, and this year, he’ll have his own stage and of course, there’s a spot reserved for Murdock on the NETSKY & Friends stage.
  • Craig David presents TS5, Felix Jaehn (known for his remix of ‘Cheerleader’) and Oscar & The Wolf are utterly original and will underscore the diversity of the Tomorrowland programme.
  • Fatboy Slim, Tiësto, Markus Schulz are once again bound for De Schorre. Last year, Deadmau5 was joined by Eric Prydz onstage, who will certainly make the last festival day memorable this time around as well. On 30 July, you’ll find this influential producer at PRYDA. Tiësto has just released a new track called “BOOM” which, according to his management, is a reference to the town of Boom.
  • Since Dave Clarke first set foot on the hallowed ground of Boom in 2015, he’s never missed an edition of Tomorrowland and this year, again, he’ll host his own stage.
  • David Guetta, Martin Solveig, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Yves V, Yves Deruyter have also managed not to skip a single Tomorrowland. David Guetta got his start in the Versuz tent and for a few years now, he’s been a favourite of the festival crowd on the Mainstage.
  • It’s no secret that artists like to experiment at Tomorrowland. There’s room for B2B-sets, for launching new collabs or DJs stepping out of their comfort zone and trying out an alter ego. For example, Afrojack played the Tomorrowland Breakday Sessions under his own name, “Nick van de Wal”. This year, the artists Cirez D, Mescal Kid, NWYR, Gouryella, Dakota are on the programme. Each one is an alias for a well-known DJ who wants to try making a different sound from what the audience has come to expect.
  • Various DJ couples will be joining forces behind the decks. Last year, Adam Beyer played B2B with his wife Ida Engberg. This year, Niels Feijen will be playing side by side with LYA, and VISION MACHINE with his zin NATASJA. The Dutch DJ Unders will be accompanied by his partner Britta from Berlin.
  • Unique in the history of Tomorrowland is that a father, Delafino, together with his very own daughter Luna Fino, will be sharing the musical passion and love for house with the audience. They will be passing the torch at a very special location, the LEAF stage that is also the most sustainable stage at the festival.
  • Nick Bril not only makes the magic happen in the kitchen of The Jane, but he’ll also show up for two DJ sessions at Tomorrowland. You’ll find him at both the Ants stage on the stage of Diynamic. Plus, he’s also the ambassador for Tomorrowland Tastes of the World restaurant.
  • It’s a woman’s world at Tomorrowland with the likes of Daoud (Charlotte De Cock), Vaal – that’s right, the daughter of Sting-,  Charlotte de Witte, Nina Kraviz, Amare, Krewella, MTTN, Alison Wonderland, Rebekah, Lady S, Francesca Lombardo, Sandrien, Nadine Adjani, Trixy, Annie Hall, Trinity, Lena, Q-LaLane, Maya Jane Coles…
  • I LOVE TECHNO: the legendary concept returns to Belgium, with loads of bigtime names such as The Belleville Three, the pioneers of Detroit techno.
  • Tastes of the World will bring together all the flavours of the world at Tomorrowland. Not only do the festival guests and the food selection at Tomorrowland promise a lively, international mix, but onstage as well you’ll find artists from all over the world, such as Blade & Beard who left Iran to follow their passion: music, and Krewella, two sisters with Pakistani roots.

KSHMR Reveals Forthcoming Collab With Vini Vici Is “Very Different”

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 1:06pm

Like many artists, KSHMR has built his career on having a defined sound (as well as excellent production capabilities). While this can sometimes lead fans to wish for something a little different, it’s generally good to know what you’ll be getting.

However, KSHMR revealed on Twitter a couple days ago that he’s working on a new track with Vini Vici, and it’s apparently going to sound different than “anything either of [us] have done.” With Vini Vici’s penchant for psytrance and associated trance styles, and KSHMR’s ability to bang out house hit after house hit, this collaboration should prove to be a spectacularly unique combination.

No release date yet on this track, so we’ll just have to wait to hear a teaser when it’s inevitably tested live.

Working on something w/ Vini Vici that’s very different… than anything either of have done I think

Worldly

Your EDM Premiere: SOBO – Dem Bettah Know

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 12:00pm

SOBO is a brand new drum and bass project by a Dallas-based artist named John D. Robbins. While he’s worked in the electronic music industry for years, this is his first foray into drum and bass production. His first two tracks, a single called “Dem Bettah Know” and a b side called “Feel U”, release today on Bachelors of Science’s Code Recordings. The DnB world is thus about to discover this “new” talent whose jungle and drum and bass roots have always been there. Your EDM sat down with John, soon to be known as SOBO, to talk about his new passion project, the evolution of drum and bass, and why he decided to finally follow his love of 170 BPM.

Thanks so much for taking the time today, John. Since SOBO is a new project, can you let everyone know how you came to want to produce drum and bass and why this project is so special to you?

I’ve worked in music since college, really, but when I first heard drum and bass I knew that’s what really got me and I wanted to just be around it all the time, to produce it and dance to it…I don’t really dance to any other music but I’ll get down to drum and bass.

When did you first get into DnB?

I guess it started with the Dieselboy releases in the late 90s and early 00s, and then I was actually running a breaks night at a club in Dallas in like 2001, and we had a DnB guy roll through who asked to play at that night, and when I heard it live I was just hooked. It’s always been my main passion in electronic music, but obviously especially in the U.S. it’s really hard to break the scene with it.

Is that one of the reasons you shied away from making it until now?

Yeah, I guess partially…but also when I finished school and I was really trying to decide where I wanted to go with music, that’s when like Pendulum started emerging around 2003-2005, and then the stuff Noisia started to do, I feel like those tech step and neuro guys in Europe just set the bar so insanely high with the way they did things on a technical level…I’m not saying we couldn’t achieve that in the U.S. – there’s tons of great producers here – but it was a little daunting, you know? So really for about ten years I just nerded out on those guys, like did you know Pendulum, they’re surfers from Perth, right? So it’s hard to tell since they’re so tweaked, but a lot of their melodies in “Slam” and “Vault”, for example, are taken from old 60s surf songs. They figured out a way to make those things so hardcore and viable for drum and bass…that’s crazy when you think about it. So following that arc of the really technical producers in neuro and now half time like Ivy Lab…it’s so impressive and I think in the last ten years they’ve done so much to take drum and bass so such a crazy level of competence, it’s really cool.

That’s interesting, because these first two tracks seem more inspired by other sub-genres, like “Dem Bettah Know” combines a lot of styles, that would mostly be identified as more old school drum and bass and even jungle with the vocal sample. Why did you choose it as your lead single on the SOBO project?

Don’t get me wrong: I definitely started in the scene with jungle and OG drum and bass, so I definitely wanted to do that first. I’m in my 30s now, and the more I work with music and specifically drum and bass, I want to listen to a track that’s a full song, and that you can follow the trajectory. I respect the techy stuff, but I still really like a song that takes you somewhere and that has a groove. I mean these kids nowadays are making alien communications from what I can tell, and that’s awesome. It’s so crazy the amount of work and technical know-how some producers are getting into and building amazing tracks over a certain sound they created. Noisia and those guys completely changed the way production is done and I take a lot of lessons from that, but on these first two tracks I wanted to a. pay homage to the roots of jungle and DnB, and b. make some tracks that I would really enjoy listening to. I’m so into liquid nowadays, so that’s why “Feel U” is on there as well.

Makes sense. It does sound like you did put a lot of modern twists and techniques into “Dem Bettah Know”, though. Like for example the vocal sample, it sounds like it’s a classic jungle vocal, but you’ve clearly cut it up and stitched it back together so it sounds totally different and kind of modern somehow.

Yeah, that sample is actually a classic, from a dancehall sample pack I got way back in like 2001. I’ve used that pack so much it’s crazy. But yeah the original vocal is actually the same as the title, but I sort of cut it in half and reversed it so it sounds different but it’s definitely old jungle.

Well thanks for confirming! The junglists will have a good time trying to pinpoint that one. Now with the beat on that track, again it definitely seems as though it’s meant to be standard early jump up, but you’ve cleaned it up and put a really modern and interesting bass track over it. How did you put that part together?

Well with that bass track, I wanted to do something different, since like I said a lot of the producers I admire, the neuro and half time guys, spend so much time on making these crazy sounds and there’s so many of them in each track, I thought it would be cool to create one heavy, sort of techy bassline that grew throughout the track to sort of a low growl. It gives it a kind of ambient feeling and it crosses genres in some ways too. I think that’s the biggest way the track becomes more modern in the face of a jump up beat and a jungle sample (laughs).

It’s one of the coolest parts of the track for sure. The other point of interest on “Dem Bettah Know” is about halfway through after the breakdown, it seems to change directions and the beat is almost reversed to how it started. It’s a pretty bold choice with so many throwback elements. What made you decide to do that?

Again, with guys like Noisia and Ivy Lab and even some of the new dubstep, that’s become standard to switch directions and have a ton of different tempos and beats in one track. I wanted to see what happened when I applied it to a more standard drum and bass song arc. DnB typically would follow the same tempo and beat pattern though the whole song, but I just thought that would be a cool way to structure it differently.

So talk about the b side of this single, “Feel U”. It’s a completely different style from “Dem Bettah Know”. Why did you choose to release these two together?

Well, like I said I’ve really been into liquid lately, and I just find myself listening to liquid tunes more often nowadays. SOBO will have a lot of styles to it as I grow the project, but I think it will definitely be pretty liquid heavy. I just like songs, you know? I was a band geek in high school, I play instruments, so I think despite all the other things I love about drum and bass, that’s what I like to listen to.

How did you meet Bachelors of Science and how did you decide to release the tracks on Code Recordings? 

Well, I know Luke (from BOS) from back in the day, we used to see each other at shows and we talked a lot and became friends. We sort of lost touch over the years, but once I decided to start making drum and bass and I was shopping labels, I re-connected with him by chance and sent like six tracks over to them. They were so excited and supportive, and they basically said they wanted all of them. I really love the U.S. drum and bass scene and I want to support it, and the guys at Code have been so cool and helpful, so it just worked out really well. I’m excited for the other tunes we’ll be releasing later this year as well.

Lastly, anything you want to say to the drum and bass community and the fans?

Mostly thank you. I wanted to release these tracks in a way that honors the drum and bass scene because that’s really what I care about, and I’m excited to be on this new project with everyone who’s supported so far, so thank you for the support and stay tuned!

“Dem Bettah Know” and its b side, “Feel U” release on Code Recordings today, May 15 and is available on Beatport, itunes, Spotify and Amazon.

Diplo’s Latest Single Just Disappeared

Sun, 05/14/2017 - 9:28pm

It’s no secret that Diplo is a bona-fide hit maker. With artists like Young Thug, Rich the Kid, and even Justin Bieber on his latest single “Bankroll,” one would think it would be a hit in true Diplo fashion. According to Twitter users, though, “Bankroll” was the “worst thing [they’ve] ever heard,” and the “worst song of the year”.

After retweeting some negative tweets about the song, Diplo took the track down pretty much instantly, just days after its May 11th release.

With it being taken down so fast along with poor reception, one can only wonder if the song is gone for good, or if Diplo is going back into the studio to turn it into a hit. Of course, someone was able to rip and re-upload it for our listening pleasure, or lack thereof. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Kygo’s Debut Album ‘Cloud Nine’ Just Turned A Year Old

Sun, 05/14/2017 - 5:00pm

It’s official. Kygo’s debut album Cloud Nine has only just turned a year old, but the talented producer is already back in the studio putting up new singles for his sophomore follow-up. While that’s fairly exciting and all we should take this time to look back at Cloud Nine which spawned some of Kygo’s best-loved singles like “Firestone” “Stole the Show,” and “Stay.”

Featuring collaborators across the board like John Legend, Foxes, James Vincent McMorrow and more, Cloud Nine took the album streaming charts by storm peaking at #11 on the Billboard Hot 200 and topping the Billboard charts for Dance/Electronic albums. It achieved similar success in Europe as well with a peak position of #3 on the U.K. album charts plus a silver certification of upwards of 60,000 sales. The success of the album’s singles on streaming platforms, particularly Spotify, also contributed to Kygo’s incredible achievement of becoming the fastest artist to hit 1 billion streams on the platform.

Stream Cloud Nine again below and keep your ears out for the next Kygo singles!

MP3 Changed Our Lives Forever, But It’s Time to Move On

Sun, 05/14/2017 - 4:58pm

MP3 is dead. But, before that totally weirds you out, here’s why…

The revolutionary MP3 file format changed the game of music listening forever. Instead of physical CDs you could store weightless files and listen from your desktop, laptop or portable MP3 player — thanks to a compression algorithm developed by The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits. As research and technology advanced, however, the MP3 files never did.

Since then, another audio format, AAC — or “Advanced Audio Coding” was brought to fruition in part by the same developers, and took compression and quality to the next level. This should have killed MP3 files right away, but instead we clung to what we knew. Now, MP3 is officially becoming obsolete, as announced by its creators. It’s time to move on to bigger and better (or technically, smaller) quality things.

MP3 was actually doomed from the start, as the engineers who developed the MP3 worked on less complete information on how our brains process sound. New audio formats with richer information are constantly being created, and streaming services make adapting to the changes even easier. So, it’s time to get with the program.

As the director, Bernhard Grill told NPR, AAC is now the “de facto standard for music download and videos on mobile phones” and “more efficient than MP3 and offers a lot more functionality.”

R.I.P. MP3… Our inner 90s kid may shed a tear over the nostalgic term, but our ears are happy for the higher quality music to come.

JOYRYDE Talks Menacing HOWSLA Track “New Breed” and Twisted, Self-Directed Music Video

Sun, 05/14/2017 - 4:35pm

JOYRYDE‘s single “New Breed” ft. Darnell Williams is just that — an entirely new animal of a track that will hit you differently than most bass house! Scratch that, it will hit you differently than most music in general…

The track came to life after OWSLA founder Sonny Moore, AKA Skrillex, invited JOYRYDE to join the HOWSLA compilation album. He already had a perfectly weird rough draft in mind, it just had to be developed. Then, as OWSLA linked JOYRYDE up with Darnell Williams, it became an absolute menace.

“I wanted the vocal to be a mood. I didn’t want to make something that was fixated on the vocal,” he explained to Your EDM. “Some of the words are a bit unclear. Everything is a little turned down and deep inside the record. It’s something that gives you an impression.”

Not only did JOYRYDE lend his stellar production abilities for this freakishly raw, and undeniably original HOWSLA release, but he wrote the treatment, directed, and edited the heaviest music video of his career in under a week and a half. Damn!

JOYRYDE describes “New Breed” and the accompanying film project as its own entity, not just one of his tracks. “I see this track as itself, and it affords me the ability — because it’s different — to do something different.”

“I just wanted the track to shatter any expectations of what it was going to be like. Because, that’s the worst — when people know what it’s going to sound like,” he added.

Mission accomplished, because we’ve never heard or seen anything quite like this. Watch the dark, twisted, borderline sinister, self-directed music video for “New Breed” right here… Plus, check back for Your EDM’s full interview with JOYRYDE soon!
